What do these two stories have in common?

If you know me, then the answer's easy:

Uno: Jamie Lynn Spears, the 16-year-old "Zoey 101" star and sister of Britney, told OK! magazine that she's pregnant and that the father is her boyfriend, Casey Aldridge.
"It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected," she said. "I was in complete and total shock and so was he."
Spears is 12 weeks along and initially kept the news to herself when she learned of the pregnancy from an at-home test and subsequent doctor visit, she told the celebrity magazine, which hits stands in New York on Wednesday and the rest of the country by Friday.


Dos:As if Florida State coach Bobby Bowden didn't have enough problems with his football program that continues to spiral toward the middle of the ACC pack, the university reportedly will suspend as many as 25 players - including 11 starters - for the Dec. 31 Music City Bowl against Kentucky for their alleged involvement in an academic cheating scandal.
According to a story broken by the Tallahassee Democrat, underclassmen who have admitted guilt could also be suspended for the first three games next season. Federal privacy laws prohibit the school from releasing names, but the defense is expected to be hit the hardest.
Involved players are expected to continue practicing but will not travel with the team to Nashville, according to president T.K. Wetherell and Bowden. If the players fight the suspensions, they risk losing their eligibility. The latest controversy to hit this beleaguered program came as a result of an internal investigation by the university in May after the school received information that a student tutor had directed one athlete to take an on-line quiz for another and then provided the answers. The tutor reportedly told officials he had provided student-athletes with answers for the test since 2006, according to a report on ESPN.com.
The university reported its findings in a letter to the NCAA in September after a six-month investigation. Academic adviser Brenda Monk and the student tutor lost their jobs this summer for reportedly offering improper help after 23 FSU athletes were implicated in cheating on on-line exams. At first, the scandal was thought to involve only two Seminole football players. Defensive end Kevin McNeill missed the season and wide receiver Joslin Shaw missed the first four games. But now, following ongoing interviews, the circle has expanded, leaving Bowden and his staff wondering who will be available. "We have some players not traveling for one reason and some for another, including those who are ineligible for the bowl because of academic issues," Bowden said in a statement released by the university Tuesday. Bowden, 78, who has been at FSU for 32years, had been refusing to comment on the scandal. He is in the final days of his career and has been taking heat for his team's fourth straight subpar season.
The school, which announced last week that Bowden had agreed to a one-year extension that will pay him $2 million, designated Jimbo Fisher as his eventual successor. Fisher's new contract calls for him to replace Bowden at the end of the 2010 season.


The little missive in red about this old piece of SHIT Bobby Bowden should give you a hint. Any guesses? Yeah, college football's a sham and these guys--including too many young black men--are students like I can grow wings and fly like a bird, and they perform like seals for these rednecks whilst real students can't catch a break. But that's just the sympton, not the moral disease or hypocrisy. I cut off the Spears story because it would give it away. Zooey 101 will not cease production, by the way...

You're transparent! Brit's sis will go on making money and getting even more notoriety over this while the avrage ghetto pregnant teenager will be vilified. Bobby Bowden get's his $2mil and the program never cleans up, nor will the NCAA? I'm at least close, right?

Is the dad a high school hilbilly too? Lynne, the momma of Brit and Jamie, has truly instilled some wonderful values in her daughters. She makes Lindsay Lohan's mom look normal.

I also have taken your hints and echo anonymous's comment.

Bobby Bowden is a good coach, maybe even a very good coach. What he is not is a mentor to young men. Whenever a scandal hits his program he brushes it off like it's no big deal. He doesn't care how these men do in life. Meanwhile many of the kids he recruits are losers in life and unless they make it to the pros, probably don't graduate or even amount to much. If Bowden would put his foot down once in a while he would probably mold some of these kids into men.

Remember the scandal with Laverneus Coles and the the fake price tags? That was theft! Bowden indefinitely suspended Coles and the others involved but reinstated them in time to play UVa (at the time we had a great team). I believe it ended up being a 1 game suspension.

There was another incident after that where Bowden is quoted as saying, "Boys will be boys". Yes, boys will be boys and it's funny when we're pulling pranks. It's not funny when illegal things are being done.

And he gets $2m for that.

Do the words "birth control" mean anything in the Spears' household?

She is lucky she is not on the Disney Channel. Her ass would have been fired pronto.

I just can't see those middle class mothers who let their daughters watch that show just let it continue.

All great stories make you want to keep turning the page. I would say that this is more due to plot although characterization, dialogue, mood, etc are also important cupuacubest bully sticks
