    Okay good because for a minute I thought the joke was it was a one paragraph article to cover 8 violations.

    No, the best article ever to appear on ESPN.com started with the headline, "Dick to replace Johnson vs. Gamecocks" referring to who was going to start at QB for Arkansas against South Carolina.

    It was from 10/31/05 and it lasted for about 5 minutes before they edited the headline. I got a print screen of it because I knew it wouldn't last.

    Wow, our record last year was almost as good, and we didn't even cheat!
