Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
It appears Adam "Pacman" Jones is up to his old antics once again. I'm sure glad the Lions steered clear of this guy when he was available.
Arrested after a bar incident overnight, Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones said on Twitter Sunday that he wasn't drunk.
“I have a right to my opinion and the bad part I don't drunk,” he tweeted @realpacman24
Damn.... good thing he don't drunk!!! If he was out drunking we would all be in trouble.
Another quote from his twitter account:

It's amazing Rich Rod was able to keep this guy out of trouble at West Virginia.
Evidenced by his booking photo: Not even a neck brace will slow this man down when he is out at the club.

People have occasionally inquired about an iPad app, but I had always felt that the main site looked fine on the iPad. That being the case, there are still some nice things about an app (easier navigation, access to a lot more posts). Since the code is more or less the same as the iPhone app, and Brian has given me the go ahead, I've cobbled something together.
Here's a quick video of it (if I can get the embed to work, direct link otherwise http://youtu.be/-51tCt4INdg)
I'm looking for a small handful of beta testers. Requirement: have an ipad. Definitely looking for some 1st gen ipad testers.
Email me at elaydin.tech at gmail if you're interested.
Thanks for the quick and healthy response.
I think I have all the testers I need. I'll respond to all those who have responded within a day.
We all know KK is a tentative visitor this weekend with family, in particular Mom. Will this be another two fer weekend?
So according to this piece from the Cleveland Plain Dealer
Ohio State mentioned five self-imposed sanctions in its response to the NCAA:
• Vacating the 2010 season, including the Sugar Bowl win. According to Ohio State, this means the entire 12-1 season, making Ohio State 0-0 last year.
• Vacating the 2010 Big Ten title, originally shared with Wisconsin and Michigan State with a 7-1 conference record.
• Suspending several players for games during the 2011 season, as was originally done in December.
• Seeking and getting the resignation of football coach Jim Tressel.
• Two years of probation.
Now, we all know that vacating wins is standard practice in situations regarding eligibilty of players, but vacating losses seems like a new one to me. What's worse is that it allows Ohio State to not have to claim the loss or the game played in their all-time record. That seems like having their cake and eating it too. Has anyone ever heard of a school vacating its losses? Could schools just start vacating their losses and claim the game never happened for one reason or another? Could Michigan go in and vacate the 2010 OSU loss on the grounds that Ohio State claims the game never happened?
I know there's a tinge of sarcasm in this, but I am trying to figure out if this has precedent.
I'm having trouble finding out how the ball is placed on catches like this.
Lets say that a WR is running towards the sideline on an out route. The ball is thrown, and the WR makes a diving catch on the ball. He has possession of the ball out of bounds, but he drags his feet in bounds. If he dragged his feet in the endzone, it would be a touchdown, but lets say that the ball lands out of bounds at the 30, and his feet are at the 32 when he falls down. The ball is placed at the 32, right? But lets say he is on a hitch route, and he dives towards the QB to make the catch, in bounds. In this case, the ball would be placed at the 30, where it lands (as if it were a run play), correct?
Bonus: on a run, it is only a TD if the ball crosses the goal line, right? So if a RB runs towards the pylon, and gets a foot in the endzone while the ball is out of bounds, is it a touchdown?
I've been watching football for a long time, but these rules still confuse me sometimes. Any help would be appreciated.
