Good Morning: 9.25.12
The Seattle debacle, Obama on The View, white coaches at HBCUs.

The Green Bay Packers were jobbed by the replacement referees against the Seattle Seahawks, who launched a Hail Mary as time ran out. The refs ruled it a catch. The Packers disagreed.
Charles Pierce called Sunday’s game between the Pats and Ravens the lowest moment for the replacement refs. Wonder if he can write an update.
Is it cool to keep complaining about the refs? Maybe instead we should boycott this week’s Thursday Night Football. Then you’ll find out how much the fan really means to the game.
Bad injury news for the Jets: Darelle Revis was lost for the season.
On the flip (phone) side, Kyrie Irving returned to practice for the first time since breaking his hand two months ago. Can’t wait to see the kid ball again.
Is Blue Ivy going to be Big Sister soon? The Source speculates on Bey’s belly.
Wiz Khalifa leaked a dope new song featuring The Weeknd and pushed back his release date for O.N.I.F.C. from its original Sept. 18 date to Dec. 4, which, apparently, is the thing to do.
I can’t wait for that album. Neither can Complex, which counts down the top 50 most anticipated albums or the rest of the year.
Did you realize?
Barack Obama went on The View yesterday, calling himself Michelle’s “eye candy,” instead of meeting with UN leaders in New York.
It may not have been the best idea, as the New York Times details Obama’s difficult path ahead in dealing with the Arab Spring.
It’s more difficult when Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad makes speeches like this.
On the other side of the campaign trail, Mitt Romney really can’t seem to keep his mouth shut.
Here’s an interesting comparison between Romney and his father, George. They look strikingly similar. They sound very different.
Everything I Am
Alcorn State University has a new coach. He’s white; the first in conference history. Great piece from Jemele Hill.
Gotta Have It
How do you choose between a new Frank Ocean track and a new Kendrick Lamar track? You don’t. Enjoy.
