I heard he's going to get his name legally changed to Steve DeCock.

Sympathizes.

Side note: this ballplayer's father is Peter Marshall, long time host of Hollywood Squares. Marshall's given name is Pierre LaCock.

When I saw the submission, all I could think of was Walter Brennan hobbling around yelling Luke De Cock instead of Luke, the barn!

Here's the article without the stupid engagement-wall:  https://www.charlotteobserver.com/spo​rts/spt-columns-blogs/luke-decock/arti​cle242929506.html

I wish NC State every bit of luck fighting this.  If the NCAA had pulled their head out of their ass years ago on name/image/likeness issues, Dennis Smith's bribery would have just been legitimate contract negotiations.

The player is long gone, the coach is long gone.  The AD has retired.  Hit Gottfried with a LENGTHY show-cause, but there's no reason to hurt the kids who were in middle school when this happened.

You can Luke, but you can't touch.

Could be worse. He could be Dick or Rod or Lance.

/Lance deCock? Ouch!

When I win the lottery, I'm just going to sit outside that store and wait for guys with scarves like that to kick in the balls for real.

Never really got the whole "dickpunch" thing. Punch a dick and it is completely normal, doesn't hurt any more or less than a standard punch to any other non-vulnerable spot. Punch some balls though? Fight over, unless you're Frank Trigg and you know you got away with a low blow even if it was unintentional and then you get immortalized.

Oh shiat, it is actually up on YouTube with the UFC's blessing.

How come he isn't the beat writer for South Carolina athletics?

As a native North Carolinian, and a UNC grad I've always thought DeCock was a hack with an anti-Tarheel bias. He's a hero over at Moo U and in Durham for sure. Screw him and the News and Observer.
