After the jump, join me in expressing my total shock over the season four finale of “Dexter,” which aired last night on Showtime. There will be lots of spoilers, so if you haven’t watched the episode yet (what is wrong with you?!), don’t click any deeper. Seriously, this was one episode you do not want… READ MORE »

Since seeing “The Blind Side” a few weeks ago, I have totally become an expert on college football recruiting and NCAA violations.
