    Just as a little experiment, why don't we all try using the 'c---' word as a term of endearment towards our wives and girl friends and report back?

    Something like: "How's my sweet c--- tonight?" or "Did my widdle c--- have a hard day at the office?"

    You will be receiving my report from the intensive care unit of the nearest hospital.

    What is the relevance of whether someone was called a c*** to whether or not somebody was sexually assaulted? Why is this even an issue in this case?

    I also don't see how calling a girl cute is relevant.

    I'm almost certain that the football players were not familiar with the Middle English etymology of that word. That woman is a lunatic.

    I call my wife chattle every once in a while since it is on our marriage certificate. She about takes my head off with that c word, there is no way I am trying the other c word.

    term of endearment??? Ya right. If I called my wife that I would be typing this from my laptop at a hotel. Now... my mother in law on the other hand, well, she is C***! :lol:

    And the predictable response...

    Holy cow, are you kidding me? She suspends Barnett for saying something he wishes he "phrased differently" and then she says something she wishes she "phrased differently"? Er, they both deserve each other, I'm afraid.

    I just thank God we've got Tressel, Geiger, and, yes, even Karen Holbrook, and not this bunch of buffoons.

    Message to Colorado Board of Regents: if you want to keep these people around, at least have their lips sewn shut.
