The public argument over the end of Notre Dame-FSU (and the "penalty" called against the Fighting Irish) has focused on the surface question: was offensive pass interference committed or not? But, much like the penalty itself, that debate is a F A L S E F L A G.

No, the real question is who would have incentive to cheat Notre Dame, America's finest academic, athletic, and morality institution, out of a deserved victory? The web is tangled and corrupt, but we must unravel it as S E E K E R S O F T R U T H.

This is David Epperley, the head referee who oversaw the P U B L I C F R A U D perpetrated against Notre Dame last Saturday night in Florida. Epperley is not the mastermind of this C O N S P I R A C Y, but he is one of its puppets, and there is proof.

1. "EPP-ERLE" on a telephone keypad gives you the number 377-3753.

2. In Boise, Idaho, 377-3753 is the number of a Blimpie Subs & Salads.

3. The most famous blimp in the W O R L D is operated by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company.

4. Goodyear Tire & Rubber is headquartered in Akron, Ohio.

5. The head football coach at the University of Akron is Terry Bowden, son of FSU legend Bobby Bowden.

Coincidence? Perhaps. But there are more participants in this D I S G R A C E F U L C A B A L.
