UF currently holds No. 9 and is tied with the University of California, San Diego and the University of California, Irvine. One factor that has kept the school from reaching a higher nationwide ranking is its faculty size, said Spiro Kiousis, executive associate dean and professor of public relations. The Florida Board of Governors is providing about $110.6 million that UF is using to hire more faculty and reach its goal of entering the top-three ranking. The colleges 15 hires include 11 lecturers for the journalism, telecommunication and public relations departments and four assistant professors for the advertising, telecommunication and public relations departments. Joining the colleges ranks are professionand scholars. Kiousis said this many people have never been hired by the CJC at once. To my knowledge, its unprecedented, Kiousis said. Its historic nationally, as well as historic for us. The new faculty will be teaching both already established and new courses in the college. Some have started their positions, but the majority of them will begin in the Fall, including CNN Wires Moni Basu, who Professor and chair of UFs Department of Public Relations Marcia DiStaso said the department will gain Natalie Asorey, a social media specialist who will teach a writing and social media class; Mickey Nall, who worked for Ogilvy Public Relations and was the 2013 Public Relations Society of America chair and CEO, and Myiah Hutchens, a public relations scholar who will teach political public relations. Having these new hires will put more full-time faculty members in classrooms, DiStaso said. Weve got some amazing (graduate) students teaching, amazing (adjunct professors) teaching, but this just gives us a little DiStaso said each department evaluated its faculty to determine which skill sets were lacking. Applicants were judged based on how they could strengthen the CJCs faculty base and improve the student experience. Itll help us grow, help us meet demands of students to kind of provide the fantastic degree that weve been providing but also step up our game, DiStaso said. faculty members began Thursday, said Randy Wright, executive director of the Division of Media Properties.

Its nice for us to be able to continue to grow, DiStaso said. Its rare for universities to do that. I know many across the country that are just teaching bare minimum classes, and we can provide all the hot, fantastic topics with some amazing professors.UF CJC hires 15 faculty members, starts Weimer renovations By Kelly HayesAlligator Contributing WriterFreshman Robyn Clarkes transition to college was like any and excitement. But unlike most students, Clarke lives with cerebral palsy, a neurological disorder affecting movement and posture, making her transition into a dorm a little different. Im not strong enough to open the door on my own, Clarke said. When I try, it just takes all of my strength and effort. As she looked for a college to university with on-campus housing where she could live safely on her own terms. I still need a lot of help doing regular, everyday tasks, Clarke said. But the problem that (my family) kept coming up with was that none of the other schools really had the accomodations I needed. Clarke eventually found a home in UF. With plans to expand from 11 to 19 handicap-accessible rooms by next summer, UF could house more students like her. UF is one of few schools in the country to offer secure, inclusive housing for students living with disabilities, said Jenna Gonzalez, associate director and learning specialist for the Disability Resource Center. We have the ADA law as the baseline, but UF just took it above and beyond, Gonzalez said. Its really rewarding to see how accessibility has changed. The accommodations provided by UF are giving Clarke a new-found freedom. She lives in Cypress Hall, which was built in 2015 and provides student with disabilities a secure place to live independently. is handicap accessible, Clarke said. Each room is also specially dividual needs. A furniture shop customizes furnishings to make the area more accessible. It just seems like UF has thought of nearly everything, Clarke said. This dorm is allowing me to be independent in a way I never have been before. In addition to customized furniture, UF and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are the only U.S. schools to provide tools for students with disabilities, such as ceiling lifts for in-room mobility and bang bars, which are vertical, metal bars that just need a gentle tap to open doors, Gonzalez said. Now, Im able to go downstairs on my own without it being such a big undertaking, Clarke said. There are different levels of residential accommodations, from rooms without carpet for students suffering from allergies and asthma to single dorms for those with anxiety and depression. Gonzalez works with each create housing that suits them. Without this, I dont know where I would have gone. I might have been stuck at home taking classes online, Clarke said. Because of these accommodations, Im able to come here, live my dream and get a degree that I can then use to go out and make a difference in this world.UF plans to expand handicap-accessible housing next yearTaylour Marks / Alligator Staff VOLUME 112 ISSUE 102Published by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gainesville, Florida

By Stephanie StricklandAlligator Contributing WriterMcKenzie Smith, 22, knows what it feels like to reach her breaking point. Smith and her teammates were competing in the Ranger Challenge when she felt her mind and body break down. Fatigue had taken over. She no longer felt she had it her teammates felt otherwise. The captain of the team grabbed me by my ruck and said, McKenzie, I believe in you, you can do this, Smith said, and she did just that. It was this act of mental toughness during Smiths time within UFs Army ROTC program that she will bring to the Army Nurse Corps. become staples of Fourth of July celebrations. In the wake of these festivities, Americans are reminded of those who have worked to uphold the freedom this holiday commemorates through the U.S. armed forces. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, there are around 20 veterans who commit suicide each day, accounting for nearly 20 percent of suicides in the country. Mental illnesses such as posttraumatic stress disorder and depression are not uncommon among the armed forces. Despite this, students at UF and across the country are excitedly preparing to take up military roles through ROTC programs. These students often carry a heavier load than others and seldom have additional resources dedicated to their mental health. However, Savannah Herrington, a second-year psychology major with a vested interest in developmental psychology, said if additional mental health resources were provided to these students, they may go unused. One of the main reasons why people do not reach out for mental health support is that they are too afraid or too ashamed to ask for help, she said. Herringtons thoughts align with a research study conducted by Kristopher Hall, a former doctoral student at the University of Central Florida, in his dissertation regarding mental health stigmas among ROTC students. Hall concluded that service members avoid seeking help if they feel there is a chance of being stereotyped or negatively labeled. However, Hall also found that if students or faculty in leadership positions supported the use of mental health resources, ROTC students were more likely to take advantage of them. The best line of defense when it comes to mental health among ROTC students are themselves on a personal and interpersonal level, Herrington said. ROTC programs can be successful for the transition into the military as long as they focus on dent individuals, Herrington said. Lt. Col. Bryan Lucas, the senior Marines instructor at the Edgewater High School Junior ROTC program in Orlando, works to do just that. Lucas said he recognizes that it is his responsibility to ensure the mental health of his students. He encourages them to create a support system among themselves as they go through the rigor of military programs. What we say is, Youre a family, and its your responsibility to look out for one another, he said. Lucas said the goal of JROTC and ROTC stretch beyond the duration of the program itself. We want them to be successful in life, he said, which includes ensuring that each student has a strong network to fall back on. This network is what Kenzee Marcotte, 19, is hoping to rely on as she joins UFs Air Force ROTC program this upcoming Fall. Marcotte said she has struggled with her own mental health in the past but believes that coming into a network of other students with similar goals will help her build her own inner strength. I hope that the Air Force brings me a sense of community, family and belonging that will help aid in my mental health, she said. Marcotte is supportive of the efforts UF has made regarding mental health as a whole through resources such as the Counseling & Wellness Center. However, she said the addition of an on-site counselor may alleviate some of the anxiety associated with the transition between ROTC and active military service. ROTC students will face a different kind of stress that the average student may not face: The reality that after school is over, they may be serving our great country and the challenges that come along with this will require a different kind of psychological assistance, she said. John Maxwell Max Clausen Jr., 20, is a UF geology junior within the Navy ROTC program, and he said the program has integrated mental health into its curriculum to teach students how to respond in stressful situations. One example of this training is during Freshmen Orientation week for Navy ROTC. Clausen said cadets are introduced to stressful environments and learn how to focus on the mental health of themselves and those around them, but this type of training doesnt end there. Being able to manage stress is an important skill taught throughout the four years students are in the program, he said. Clausen also participated an experimental summer training in June. One of the primary tenants of the program was to practice mental toughness during stressful and dangerous situations. The program is set to become a mainstay in Navy ROTC training, Clausen said.

Editorial Column Election prep: Part 1 Im a loud woman, and I refuse to shut upMy younger cousin has developed a bit of a reputation as a troublemaker in the family and at school because of her outspoken nature. Despite being born into an Eastern culture that tries to soften its women into submission, she has grown with a loud voice and an unforgiving tongue. She says controversial things, starts conversations and challenges teachers and peers. I connect with her because I share her expressive personality and have also suffered because of it. In response to her exuberant personality, people isolate her, bully her, disregard what she says and put her down. It makes me wonder, would the circumstances be different if she were born a boy? What if she was raised in a Western culture? Does the West have a superior level of equality for women anyway? Do we hear the voices of women and girls when they speak, or do we talk over them? Boys who exhibit her qualities are praised as leaders. They are admired for having the courage to stand up to the status quo. They arent crazy; theyre innovators. They quickly rise to management positions and make great public speakers. Unfortunately, when men speak, we all listen a little harder. Women who are outspoken are painted as annoying, nagging, bossy or obnoxious. And if they get something we want or say something we dont like, theyre called a b----. If the woman is a part of any other minority group, the treatment is often harsher. I dont believe there are even male equivalents to the types of slurs that are used against women. Curse words used against men criticize laziness, dumbness or rudeness. While words used to blast women take aim at admirable qualities like achievement, resilience, softer, to keep us under control. We respond our voices down in fear of being belittled or even worse ignored. unfair criticism toward women is that other women are often the ones taking the shots. We join in on these smears because were taught to be in competition with one another. We think there isnt enough success for women to go around, so we try to tear each other down. Because women already face so much discrimination for exhibiting leadership qualities, we dont need to add to the already bitter climate. As women, lets not use names men created to put us down. It saddens me to think my cousin, who was gifted with such candid qualities and an expressive heart, is being taught she is inadequate because of these strengths. Its a shame all these girls who are natural born leaders would be discouraged from asserting themselves. We should be encouraging girls to be themselves, especially if that means being ambitious. The next time you are about to use a slur toward a woman or call her bossy, consider whether you would say the same about a man. Are your own jealousies clouding your perception?

TUESDAY, JULY 17, 2018 ALLIGATOR 7 TM rfn tbtrb trr On Monday, President Donald Trump denied that Russia interfered with the 2016 election. What Trump the face of U.S. intelligence agencies. Trump went against the CIA, FBI and NSA to side with the authoritarian ruler of a geopolitical foe. This begs the question: Is he really still acting like our president? Heres what you need to know about the 2016 election meddling and what our U.S. intelligence agencies have said about it. First, the Justice Department, through the special counsel, indicted 12 Russian inarent out of the Justice Department alone. On the list of those who have recognized Russias election meddling are: the Senate Intelligence Committee, the House Intelligence Committee, the director of national intelligence, Secretary of Defense James Mattis (appointed by Trump), his own Secretary of State and former CIA director Mike Pompeo, the National Security adviser and, best of all, his own press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. So why wont Trump say it was the Russians? As an American, you have to wonder why your own president, the leader of your country and poster boy of the free world, wont acknowledge something so simple, so basic, as to have the entire consensus of the intelligence community. Why deny what the overwhelming amount of evidence is screaming? The only possible answer is that Trump is more afraid of Russian President Vladimir Putin than he is committed to defending the U.S. Lets drop the act. You can go ahead and forget about Trump wanting to normalize relations with Russia. Forget about easing the tension. You can safely toss he wants diplomacy with a country that was once our enemy out the window. Pompeo and I are on opposite ends of the political spectrum, so I take what he says with a heaping tablespoon of salt. But when Pompeo, despite his right-wing that the Russians meddled in this election This threat is real, I believe him. We can put politics aside for a minute and recognize this threat to our democracy. Why cant Trump? Trump showed us where his loyalties lie at the Helsinki press conference. Not with his own government. Not with his own country. Not with democracy. Not with Americans. It has become so glaringly obvious, so apparent, so neon, so egregious, that we cannot afford to wait. Trump must be impeached, and I do not say this lightly. He is, through inaction and cowardice, promoting the interests of Putin over our own. He has undercut the U.S. and its interests at every turn. Remember when Trump won? And everyone went out into the street and chanted Not my president? Some said that and I am citizen, after all. But after these two years, I didnt make that statement come true. He did. Trump abandoned us never was. Stephan Chamberlin is a UF political science junior. His column comes out Tuesday and Thursday. Never was my presidentColumn Stephan Chamberlinopinions@alligator.org Letter to the EditorHey Gator Nation, Its hard to believe the second week of Summer B is already over. Whether you were working, taking classes or just taking it easy, I hope you have all had a safe and producto write to you today to give some updates from your Student Government. We received many great applicants for summer staff positions, and theyve been able to accomplish so much already. I am happy to announce that beginning this fall, we will be hosting regular meetings with the Gainesville City Commission, Gainesville Police and University Police. This is part of my commitment to working with the local community to ensure that a healthy dialogue is created between members of the UF and Gainesville communities. External Affairs Chairwoman Emily Dempsey is working hard to ensure these meetings are successfor early September. These meetings will give students the opportunity to voice their concerns with our local government and to foster a greater sense of civic engagement. Accent Speakers Bureau Chairshow during Summer A, featuring Emmy award-winning journalist Byron Pitts. Pitts spoke about the importance of education and how to use our own privileges to help others be successful. The Summer Accent show was part of SGs efforts to engage with Innovation Academy students, who are an essential part of the Gator Nation. As many of you know, June was LGBTQ+ Pride Month. One of my campaign promises when I was running to be Student Body president was to foster an inclusive environment that focuses on representation here at UF. With this, I used my ly recognize Pride Month this year. It has been awhile since a Student Body president has utilized executive orders, but I felt it was essential to use the resources I have available to support students. At UF, we need to support all of our students and their diverse identities. An inclusive community can only make us stronlic institution. Beyond our campus LGBTQ+ equality is not over, and we must always look at what we can do here to stand with marginalized groups. As we all know too well, Summer at UF means taking classes in Rainesville. To help students stay dry, SG and U Matter, We Care will provide backpack rain covers for students. These can be used to keep textbooks, computers and anything else you may keep in your backpack dry from the elements. These will be provided a little later in the summer, so be on the lookout for those! Finally, Im happy to let you all know that applications are still open to join university committees. These committees give students the chance to provide their input on a number of issues and initiatives on campus. Applications for committees are due Friday and can be SG has been working hard for students throughout the summer. I am looking forward to seeing all that we can accomplish on behalf of every Gator.

By Angela DiMicheleAlligator Staff WriterAlmost a century ago, Charles E. Boll stashed three keepsakes from his freshman year at UF underneath a pair of wool pants. He painted them shut inside of a purple drum. A month ago, Kathy Carney, 58, and her son Ryan, 26, bought three drums for $5 each at a thrift shop in Hurricane, West Virginia. It was a typical day for the avid thrifters. As the shop owner lugged the purple, red and yellow drums to the car, he noticed something inside one and said, Well, you got something extra. When Carney got home, she used a screwdriver to pry open the lid. We came back to the house, and we had lunch. Quite honestly, I didnt even think about the drums, she said. When the purple drum popped open, she got hit in the face with the aroma of the past. Inside, a complete World War II Marine uniform covered a rectangular UF banner and triangular pennant and two small beanie-like hats called rat caps, one from UF and one from the Georgia Institute of Technology. The colors were so brilliant. The felt was wonderful, Carney said. I couldnt really say anything. If you knew me, thats a big deal for me to be speechless. The UF items were donated to the University Archives at the George A. Smathers Libraries on June 18, where they will be used for exhibits and research, university historian Carl Van Ness said. They are currently being conserved and are not on display. We did not want to sell it because it had so much historic value to the university. It was not a money-maker, Carney said. This was something valuable in itself as what it represented. Van Ness said Bolls rat cap is the oldest one in the university collection, and his pennants are among the oldest, if not the oldest, in the collection. The orange UF rat cap had the year sewn in blue on top and the words Rat Boll and Ironton, Ohio handwritten on the inside. Prior to World War II, and even students were required to wear a rat cap, Van Ness said. It was part of a quasi-hazing process whereby freshmen were admitted to the university and accepted by the Student Body. Along with the caps, Van Ness said other traditions were common during the 1930s at UF. Freshmen had to attend every football game and were not allowed to walk through the Plaza of the Americas. Instead, they had to walk around to go to class. Freshmen also had to beat sophowhere they had to wiggle 13 feet up a greased pine tree outside of Thomas said. If they won the game or Florida beat the University of Georgia in football, they were allowed to remove their caps early. to date items like these, but he con1929 because he only attended UF for one year before returning to his hometown in Ohio. For something that was sold in 1929, it was really amazing how well (the pennants have) been maintained over the years, he said. Usually you see fading in these kind of materials, but because they were stored probably forever in the dark, they havent faded very much. Since donating the items, Bolls son, Charles E. Boll II, contacted Carney said she is meeting up with him soon to give him his fathers Marine uniform and a baby rattle that was also in the drum. In 2006, Charles E. Boll died in Stuart, Florida, at 97 years old. Van Ness said he plans to have Bolls rat cap on display in the Reitz Union once he takes down the current display of a @angdimi adimichele@alligator.org TUESDAY, JULY 17, 2018 ALLIGATOR 9 Angela DiMichele / Alligator Staff Angela DiMichele / Alligator Staff West Virginia residents uncover vintage 1930s UF memorabilia

By Blake TrauschkeAlligator Contributing WriterThe difference between $50 and $300 for a dinner to Savannah Hocter is if she is given a regular soda instead of the diet version she ordered. UF sociology and criminology senior Hocter has Type 1 diabetes, meaning her body cannot produce insulin, a hormone that converts food to energy. Any unknown sugar intake can cause her glucose to spike. The Right Care Alliance and the Empowered Patient Coalition of Gainesville are holding a public forum in the Reitz Union on July 31 at 5 p.m. to discuss rising drug prices, focusing on insulin, UF medical and doctoral student Frederick Ashby said. Ashby said the three companies that own the patent to insulin in the U.S. Eli Lilly and Company, Novo Nordisk and the past few decades. The cost for these companies to produce a bottle of insulin is $1.90, Ashby said, yet they charge about $300 a bottle. Ashby said the organizations are hosting the forum because they believe in policy solutions, and they hope to host professional speakers and local politicians. The insulin products have not changed during these price hikes since each type was created, Ashby said. These rising drug prices are purely for company profit.Advocacy groups to hold forum addressing rising insulin pricesBy Dana CassidyAlligator Staff WriterScientists at UF and Georgia Institute of Technology have begun $1 million research to develop breeding techniques that allow peanut crops to withstand drought. UF professor and study program director Diane Rowland said the researchers will observe the peanuts root systems, photosynthesis maintenance and overall stress tolerance. Greenhouse trials are among the methods being used to test these traits, Rowland said. They will take the best performing peanut plants from the greenhouse and farm them, monitoring their water stress by remotely taking the plants temperatures. The techniques that we develop could be utilized by others to build on for future improvements, said UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Science agronomist Barry Tillman. The U.S. Department of Agriculture ansaid. It will be funding both UF and GTs efforts. By the end of the three-year research period, the crops will be used in a breeding program, Tillman said. These crops will cover 50 acres of land at the North Florida Research and Education Center in Marianna and the Plant Science Research and Education Unit in Citra, Florida. insight to how other crops may handle drought and develop peanut varieties that can better handle water scarcity. @dcassidy_ dcassidy@alligator.orgUF researchers develop techniques to breed drought-tolerant peanuts

TUESDAY, JULY 17, 2018 ALLIGATOR 15FOOTBALLThe Associated PressATLANTA (AP) Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey says the Supreme Court ruling that struck down a federal law barring gambling on sports could cause the league to require schools to issue weekly reports that list the status of injured or ineligible players. Speaking to reporters Monday at the start of the leagues annual media gathering, Sankey stressed that gamblings potential effect on games is one of the most important issues facing the league, but the SEC is unlikely to require weekly reports in 2018. Sports books often use information on injured or ineligible players to hedge the line. FERPA and HIPAA requirements, academic suspensions, other team or athletics department-imposed suspensions and NCAA eligibility issues make something more like an availability report relevant for discussion, Sankey said Monday. I do not believe this has to happen before the 2018 season, either on the part of this conference or the national level. I expect, however, the change in sports gambling could be and will be likely the impetus for the creation of such reports in our future. The Supreme Court ruling in May states that states wanting to take advantage of the ruling can pass legislation to allow sports books to open. Mississippi is the only SEC state currently that will allow sports books to begin taking bets at its 28 licensed casinos a process that could begin this month. Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri and South Carolina have considered legalizing sports books. Sankey said the SEC has spoken since 2011 with the NFL, NBA, Major League leagues are monitoring the issue. The SEC has prioritized its approach to legalized gambling, it will not act hastily. That will result from collaboration among the American Football Coachs Association and its representatives, the coning from the professional leagues and with proper guidance from legal resources, he said. If this is to happen, we have one opportunity to get it right. Appearing at the College Football Hall of Fame, just a few blocks from MercedesBenz Stadium, Sankey used the locale to point out some of SECs biggest accomplishments over the last few years. After playing its championship game for 23 straight years at the Georgia Dome, the league moved to Atlantas new marquee site, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and had two teams there in the national title game with Alabama beating Georgia. Its nothing new for the league to have one of its schools playing for the games biggest prize. A team from the SEC has played in 11 of the last 12 national championship games, Sankey said. Five different SEC teams have accessed the national championship game. Four different SEC teams have participated in winning nine of the past 12 national titles. Its the second time, however, since 2011, that two SEC teams have been in the national championship game. As a conference, weve led the nation in football attendance for 19 years, he said. The conferences approach maintains our long-standing rivalries, both within divisions and across divisions where they exist. Sankey added that SEC teams played in on television last year. Sankey: New gambling laws could result in SEC injury reportsA week ago, I wrote a column about how I think Tiger Woods is overrated, washed-up and doesnt deserve nearly the amount of media coverage he receives. But this column isnt about Tiger. No, lets make it bigger than that because its not only him who receives more attention than he deserves, I think we can all agree on that. Lets look at some athletes who get way too much of the spotlight: Oh man, Im about to get crucione. This is Gainesville suicide. Dare I say it? Dare I utter the name of a man who is the most perfect person, the most wonderful human being ever created, the best role model that one could think of? I love him to death, seriously, but Tim Tebow ( gasp!) receives too much attention. Okay, settle down you Florida fans. Listen, I adore Timmy Touchdown. I go to UF, and I grew up watching him at the helm of what were arguably the best four years of Gator football ever. I idolized him, had his jersey, shook his hand at every Gator Walk I attended, and I understand that he is just overall the best type of person you could ever meet. I, of all people, know how great he once was. Now, hear me out. Not a lot of people outside of the Florida faithful really enjoy following his endeavors. Since when do we care about the Double-A Minor League AllStar game and the fact that someone hit a double? But I guarantee if you watch ESPN, FOX Sports, NBC Sports or follow any other sports medium (i.e. Bleacher Report), you know Tebow did just that. You dont know about Jordan Romano, a New Hampshire pitcher who eviscerated batters with an MLB-ready 96 m.p.h. fastball, or Portlands Matt Kent, who tossed a 47 m.p.h. eephus pitch (I mean, how do you even do that when youre regularly throwing in the 80s?). Again, I respect Tebow I think hes a winner through and through, and if I have 11 Tebows on a football team (or a baseball team for that matter), Im going undefeated. Im not saying cut all coverage of Timmy, not at all. Hes just saying lets give equal coverage to the talent in the league alongside him. It feels wrong to mention Tebow and Johnny Manziel in the same breath, but the former Texas A&M product is one of the most prominent cases of America caring way too much about an athlete that is simply second-rate. If I polled 4,500 random sports fans and asked them to name one player in the Canadian Football League, Id estimate over 95 percent would respond with Manziel. Thank God for Jeremiah Masoli. Oh, wait, you dont know who that is? Ha, thats funny considering hes the starting quarterback for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, the same team Manziel is on. If youve never heard of Masoli, look him up and youll quickly the CFL in passing yards through four games. In his WORST yardage contest, he threw for 322 yards and three touchdowns pretty damn good stats for a worst game. The former Oregon and Mississippi starting quarterback position for Hamilton. Much like Tiger, Manziel is an awful role model and still dominates coverage for his league. I dont ever want to hear Manziels name without hearing Masolis in the same sentence. Finally, I really, really dont care what Ronda Rousey does anymore. I pretty much lost respect for her after she showed a complete inability to deal with a loss. In sports, theres winning and losing and, unless youre Floyd Mayweather, youre going at some point. was extinguished by Holly Holm in 2015, she embarrassed herself by never lighting it again. Yes, she attempted a return in 2016 but bout that showed Rousey had no desire to even be in the Octagon. Recently, it was announced that the UFC Hall of Fame. Sensational, she deserves it. Seriously an aweBut then she moved to the WWE, and my interest dissipated. Do I really care what she does in the WWE? No, no I dont. And you shouldnt either because WWE has absolutely no relevance to actual sports. WWE is pretty interesting and a cool show, but just really has no Its a production, not a sport. Lets focus more on the athletes today that really matter. Not the athletes of yesterday. Chris OBrien is a sports writer.
