    The tattoo stretches from one shoulder to the other across the back of Ricardo Ratliffe, a script of the sort you see spray-painted on subway cars and walls in rundown parts of most of the big cities of America.

    It shrieks at you.


    When Missouri basketball teammate Michael Dixon first saw that massive skin engraving, Dixon didn’t stroll over and casually ask the 6-foot-8, 240-pound forward to tell the story behind it. Dixon saw a history in that tattoo.

    "You’ve got to go through some pretty bad stuff to have ‘poverty’ tattooed on your back," Dixon said.

    Pretty bad stuff doesn’t cut it. Try real bad stuff. Horrendous stuff. The kind of stuff that can break kids like Ricardo Ratliffe, who vowed he would not break, no matter how hard life got to be in Hampton, Va.

  • CBS Sports: Texas A&M has "many questions" about UT network

    "I can't speak for the NCAA, but I would imagine the governing body will look into the use of a collegiate television network airing games of prospective student-athletes," Byrne said in a statement. "I understand networks such as FSN and ESPN airing high school sports, but whether or not employees under contract with a university that may have additional contact would seem to be an issue" ...

    I haven't been able to throw together much outrage regarding Bevo TV at this point -- last summer defeated me -- but ... this IS a pretty decent point. They want to air high school athletes on what basically amounts to ESPN UT?
