no, YOU'RE off topic
No RCMB, oh dear leader?
Looking like I may end up being preoccupied during the game this weekend with a company golf outing. Has anybody used BTN2Go? I've used it before live and it was great. What I'm worndering is how quickly do the replays work? If I get home 30 mins after the game starts, can I use BTN2GO to start watching it from the beginning right away? Or do I need to wait until midnight or something?
Any help would be much appreciated.
The automatic 10 second run off if a helmet pops off an offensive player late in the game is a horrible rule.
Imagine this scenario...
National Title Game, Alabama trails Florida State by 4 points, but gets a huge play down to the 1 yard line...First and Goal with 9 seconds left.
The clock will stop, but they have to be ready to run a play or spike the ball as they have no time outs....oh wait what is this, an offensive player had a helmet pop off -- automatic 10 second run off....
Game over...Florida State wins the National Title!
Horrible rule, that any down to the wire game can end based on a helmet coming off on accident and causing a 10 second run off. Any other opinions on this? Maybe it isn't a big deal, but it bothers me.
I didn't see this posted yet, not really sure if it's post worthy. But apparently Urban has filed a complaint to the B1G about the whole "eye gouge" incident. I tend to lean more towards the side of this type of thing being pretty prevelant in the trenches, and no action should really be taken. However I do think it IS pretty "Bush League," as that idiot Matt Millen put it on CFB Live.
Good article from Meinke about what Borges did with the bye week: looked for flaws in his gameplanning and playcalling. I, like many on this blog, have been tough on him, so it's good to see him acknowledging problems and looking to address them. My biggest beef has generally been his stuborness, so this is encouraging.
"I took every single play we ran and evaluated it," Borges said.
Borges didn't reveal his findings, but did walk through his process.
He said there are three types of playcalls: No. 1 is a play that favors the offense, No. 2 is one that could go either way and No. 3 is one that favors the defense.
"As a playcaller, believe me, as hard as the fans are on me, I'm about eight times harder on myself," Borges said. "If it's even close, I'll call it a No. 3 play.
"We meet with the players, we'll go over even the plays I didn't call well. You got to understand in football, if you're honest with yourself and your honest with your team, the players don't just lose the game. Everybody loses the game -- or wins the game. So you got to show them, 'This is where I put you in a bad situation,' so they trust you, and (know you're not) blaming them for the mistakes."
I assume this is all gleaned from his presser today, so I'm anxious to read that transcript.
