Petway nails threes to death metal. Seriously.
A while back someone requested in one of my other MS Paint posts that I make a picture of Charles Woodson escaping the house fire... Sadly I don't remember who this was (I get the feeling it was FooteFetish but I don't remember for sure), anyway without further adeiu here is my rendition of Charles Woodson leading everyone out of the burning house (note; he's obviously faster than they are, hence they haven't entered the shot... lol)
In case you missed it, in the mgo.licio.us section there's a link to a new article by the Columbus Dispatch on how most past players and coaches on both sides are strongly opposed to moving the Game. (Naturally, John Cooper was a dissenting voice.)
What I find most interesting there is the fan poll. Asked if the Game should be moved, 6% of respondents voted "Yes," 10% voted "Don't care" and 84 percent voted "No." Yeah, it's an online poll and unscientific and blah blah blah, but once again, every data point shows massive, massive opposition to this idea.
EDIT: in case you can't find the link, here it is: http://www.dispatch.com/live/content/sports/stories/2010/08/28/past-players-plead-leave-game-alone.html?sid=101
I know everyone has said their opinions but i felt like giving mine..1st the simple fact that everyone should know what to expect coming into camps and games now in year 3..even last season i felt like we had kids who were unsure of themselves and didnt look comfortable.
The Oline..alot has been said of the depth..to me this unit now has the athletic ability to run a spread offense..with guys like Omameh and Lewan it gives us the agility to have blockers on the move..something that our spread scheme has lacked IMO.
Experience at QB..its only 1 year but thats 1 year more than we have had the last 2 seasons..i think having a player in the most important position who can now make faster decisions and understanding of why we are doing what we are doing will be noticed by fans very early after kickoff..this scheme relies heavy on QB decision making.
2nd year in a defensive system..trust is a huge thing on defense..being in a system you are new to makes you do things you should not do...my example is when your in a new system with a new coach you are time pressed to learn so you learn YOUR position..and in this players tend to watch the ball and run to it ... but when you have experience with a coach and his plans you pick up on the guys around you and THEIR responsibility..and so you learn to force ball carriers to where you know your help will be ... i think this will also be noticed
and my last reason is i could not help but notice Mike Cox seems bigger and IMO he will be hitting the hole harder this year ... another thing that seemed to be lacking last year after i seen BMinor constantly injured.
My buddy (nd fan) and I bet every year on conference champions.
Since its saturday and I'm bored, I was curious to think what everyone thought who was going to win the major conferences. My predictions:
B12 OU, ACC Miami, BE Pitt,
Pac 10 (USC is DQ) so oregon SEC Florida
B10 - I will never pick anyone but my team
Former Florida State and Orchard Lake St. Mary's DB Dionte Allen is transferring from FSU to....Ohio State.... Someone wanna swing a golf club at my nuts or what
Disney's hold out on Time Warner is reaching Revis like proportions, they've already blacked out Cable Vision and Dish network and may do the same to Time Warner in the next month or so... which gives me a dilema, as Disney owns both ABC and ESPN. So does anyone know where I can watch games online (My ISP - Road Runner doesn't carry ESPN360.com)? If not I'll be watching a lot from MGoBlue's Gametracker.
