We are all about the breaking news here at B/R.
Especially this kind.
Apparently our old friend George O'Leary is making the papers again (he was the one with the brief stint as Notre Dame Coach, really brief.)
This time it's not for the great job that he did last year with the UCF Knights, (leading the school to its first victory against a nationally ranked opponent), but for allowing a UCF alum to shoot pics in the football locker room.
What's the big deal, you say?
Well the alum happens to be Miss July 2010.
As in Playboy Miss July 2010.
And we've got the pics here.
Check them out and decide for yourself if the Coach did anything wrong.
Meet Shanna Marie McLaughlin.
She is a UCF alum and decided to shoot some pictures at her Alma Mater.
An Orlando entertainment magazine, called Axis, called and asked the Coach for permission.
Coach O'Leary told the Orland Sentinel that some guy called after practice over the weekend and said there was a UCF alum with an MBA who would like to shoot there.
So he green lit it.
Maybe Coach was tired after leading the troops through two-a-days and didn't think to ask for more info.
Here is my favorite part of the story.
After seeing the footage, Coach O'Leary gave the quote of the week: "Eh, it's not what I expected."
He did continue to say: "But I don't think there's anything outlandish on the thing."
"I never saw the video."
I believe him.
This story actually works out for everybody. The magazine gets publicity nationwide.
The UCF Knights are being talked about.
And Shanna gets some extra time in the spotlight.
So everybody is happy.
Well except for...
According to reports, the School administrators have seen the video and said that they will remind all employees about the university's standards.
Everyone hates those talks.
After all, she is Miss July 2010, so there had to be more pics of her.
You might get her to sign this picture for you!
(What did you think I was going to say?)
So what's the verdict?
Was this a big deal over nothing?
Or were these pics inappropriate and ill advised?
Chime in, people.
And here's a bonus pic for all you who comment...
I am officially a fan as of today.
