Are you serious? The spirit of the game? If a team can figure out another team's plays and signals by relatively easy monitoring of said communications, that's the other team's issue and no where near unsportsmanlike. It's actually pretty spiritual in the name of gamesmanship. Hide your shit better. And I completely dislike Auburn and all the SEC propaganda.

|2 days 19 hours ago||I've made a couple posts||
I've made a couple posts recently, one each on the 2 types of Dlineman. The other day I yearned for Frank Clark to GET THERE more often than, "oh he was so close again". That was a bit unfair I admit, as he really is so damn close, so many times, and it seems other players would totally have a sack there except every damn QB seems to be able to get the ball out a split second before Clark can arrive, as Brian notes.
The other post was about the lack of PUSH and blown up plays from out DTackles. Now, I know they've blown up run plays, they had a few against Notre Dame even. However, and this is more or less reiterating what Brian stated above, it seems them blowing up a pass play a little more often would help FClark soooo much. Again, I've seen Glasgow kill a run play, but rarely do we see our DTs demolish, a la Mike Martin (the last I've seen be able to do this with any frequency for Michigan), a pass play and get the non-sexy sacks (the edge rushers being the sacks most people thing of and go ga-ga for) where a bum rush ends any sort of timing for the QB and he's left with nothing to do than get creamated or roll into somebody like Clark who is pretty often close to a sack, anyways.

|4 days 19 hours ago||Correct. If I'm not||
Correct. If I'm not mistaken, the NCAA guideline* says football games are for a 1:00 PM kickoff. Now, since TV schedules came into play, things were able to change via permission, moving games earlier or later for TV and other scenarios for school's benefits. Anymore I don't think the whole permission thing is needed and it's a free-for-all by the TV networks in scheduling games.
*See: NCAA Division III games, all 1:00PM games.

It's certainly something I've started pondering, oh, the past 2-3 years. I used to dismiss the notions that the Big Ten is weak and flat out isn't very good. Well, results speak loudly, and we've been weak and not very good. Sparty has recently, but Ohio State has been THEE team from our conference competing at a high level. Some were pretty good squads but some didn't quite live up to competing with the other "cream of the crop" teams from the other conferences.
It's a scary notion but is it that far off that the Big Ten may be unfixable?!

|1 week 2 days ago||I think I may get where||
I think I may get where you're coming from. I also think Brian is mostly right and the DL played pretty well.
My "issues" with the line are as follows. This may not be realistic, though I don't know why, but I wish we would see, every once in a while, a defensive tackle blow up an O-lineman and get through to disrupt a play, immediately. I've somewhat seen if from a defensive ends, though not often, and from the DEs it's not fast enough anyway. (Frank Clark will make good plays utilizing "moves" but they usually aren't a bull-rush where he's won right from the snap of the ball). But again, I wish we'd see it more from our DTs. Mike Martin was the last I can recall being able to do this a few times a game, blowing plays up right off the snap. Saturday night against Notre Dame, with the 2-3 seconds and the ball was out, I get that it's hard for our ends to get to the QB that fast but a DT right off the snap, a-la Sheldon Day, can help slow down/blow up even those quick pass plays. We don't see that often from our DTs it seems.
I could be way off. I mean, I'm positive Pipkens has blown some plays up, maybe Henry, too. But Saturday night, when we NEEDED it, to slow that quick aerial assault down, it wasn't there. And again, even the D-ends making a quick play wouldn't have been fast enough. We needed it from the tackles. The Dline played well, yes, and the secondary is what let us down. Making a huge, badass play, though, could have helped save the whole unit on a drive or two.
*Edit: An addendum: I know I'm a bit wrong on the above, in that our Dline players can blow some people up. It happened on some running plays last Saturday. I think where I really meant to come from was in regards to pass plays. We know out pass rush the past few years hasn't really been good, and it's not always up to the ends to create that spectacular play by getting a good rush. The non-sexy blow-up plays come from the tackles and we've gotten few of those lately, again, during passing plays.
|1 week 2 days ago||I think it'll grade well but||
I think it'll grade well but I'm still thinking, personally, that it wasn't all that good. Rushing, there were some good holes opened up that some were hit and some weren't, so a pretty good positive number for that aspect. But the protection I don't think was up to task. That combined with Devin's, uhmm, poor play, was not a recipe for success. Humble opinion...and that's based off of 1 viewing and a few replays on a number of plays.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'm with you all the way,||

It is an interesting notion. The Oline and its "aroma" is not good. The players are allegedly supposed to be good according to many around here's favorite past time, recruiting stars, but they do not display it (Cole is very young, I admit). There were signs last night that a thing or two are better than last year, i.e. running game aspects, but not much. So when is enough, enough? Wisconsin fired their Oline coach right about now 2 years ago and succeeded the remainder of the season.

I'm panicking because Notre Dame's defense looked like ours was supposed to (probably better, actually...Jalen Smith is a fucking beast) and their receivers looked like ours were supposed to (regardless of our defense helping that notion). Our everything looked like shit, though it all stems from our lack of development in the trenches, which is a big issue and one that needs addressing in some manner or this program will remain a middling one. Yes, there is no elite left. This program is mediocre, regardless of a backed-into fucking Sugar Bowl.
I will say, I think I and many others, including people across the country, have been underestimating 2014 Notre Dame; with Everett Golson clicking back there like he was, regardless of the lack of pass rush though yes it would have helped a tad, they looked like a pretty good team.

Played next week in my little league and went through a half-season slump, not being able to hit pitching from kids my age (8-9 years old). Weird stuff.

He said he doesn't see them trying to establish run. So like, he's thinking maybe there will be more than 2 receivers on the field. And he thinks Darboh will be the 3rd or (gasp!) 4th on the field. Is it likely? No. But that's not the point and I'd guess he knows what backup means.

You have good and valid point.
I would say, though, that listening to someone doesn't have to do with the color of one's skin but the tones their voice makes. And it's obvious that some people just prefer that voice to be that of a males (tones, experience, etc.). Does that qualify as sexism? I'm not quite sure though I'd lean toward no without really delving into this notion.
But if broadcasting dealt with what someone looks like and the color of one's skin did make a difference, then there lies some issues and some seeded racisim adn a whole new discussion we're never going to have here.

California is a bit hard to argue against! Russian River, Firestone, and The Bruery alone are...I mean, they're ridiculous. That's not even mentioning San Diego's breweries and everything else! A trip I'd like to do at some point soon is a West coast trip starting down in SD and driving North, hitting all of the amazing breweries along the way.

Drinking a Bell's Oracle as we speak. First time. Good, well crafted beer. Though Hopslam is better and sees way more distribution I'm assuming, as it seems Oracle isn't made in very big batches(?) and is a "rarer" beer, for whatever reason.
Also, Iowa should be higher. Toppling Goliath, alone, makes us an amazing beer state! My humble opinion. The pale ales, IPAs, and barrel aged stouts are all world class. Any of you coming this away in 23 years the next time Iowa plays Michigan, make a detour through Decorah, IA or find some pints hopefully available in Iowa City/Cedar Rapids.

Yep. That is what I do for the few games a year I take in. Box seats there, behind the visitors dugout, are awesome. A sunny day game at 1 or 2 in the afternoon, an expensive shitty beer in hand, feet from the opposing team's dugout (Braves in my case)...not much beats that.

I honestly can't think of the games (may have been a basketball game, but I'm thinking more football within the past 2-3 years) and it wasn't the actual loss that made me tear up. It wasn't quite a real outpour cry but I obviously had some pent up emotion and something about a loss and the effort and devotion and overall emotion that gets put into these games/kids/outcomes kind of came to a tipping point and I had to walk out to my balcony and take a few minutes to put shit together.
This happens every now and then for me when something (song, movie, moment) strikes a chord and I realize I've had some stress and emotion built up. Honestly, everyone should go have a cry every now and then (whether it's every few weeks or years) when too much life gets build up inside; it helps and for some reason helps the brain's phenomenal power put things in perspective.
*it may have been after the Louisville game after my buddy left my place. That was a touuuuuuugh loss

I'm with you. The fact defenders can't do anything anymore sucks. I'm on the side that what Sparty did to Notre Dame last year was legit and all of most of the PI calls were bogus. That sucks to say, becasue if they won that game...OMG. Anyway, the NFL has become a passing league becasue yes, great quarterback play, but also because defenders are called for penalties way too often yet rarely when an offensive player initiates contact are they called for it.

I get it, really I do. However, and I realllllly am not starting a flame war in defense of RR, but the guys that weren't theirs won them a Sugar Bowl their first season adn went 11-2.

|6 weeks 4 days ago||Your last sentence is mostly||
Your last sentence is mostly true. I mean there's plenty audiophiles still going but that's a dying bread as the lineups are getting worse and more mainstream and untz untzy. I do give credit as they got The Cure last year, Jack White two years ago. They still get solid acts but a lot of repeats from just a couple years ago (Eminem) and some scheduling has left some to be desired.
I'm not exactly a metal guy but enjoy some good rock, which is also a seemingly dying breed. I do like Arctic Monkeys and would have seen them if I went Friday. However, to me they are still a sub-headliner. Them going on before Foo Fighters at 6 or so a few years ago was perfect for them, but I do understand how they are "blowing up". However, they wouldn't headline any other festival, yet, only at Lolla, which gets back to their lackluster lineup.
Anywho, getting back to Rock, I saw Ghost B.C last year and was impressed. By the sounds of it I probably would have enjoyed Royal Blood.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Why he's talking about||
Why he's talking about playing any low level team is part of what's wrong with college football, especially in regards to the teams from down South who rarely travel out of the region to play anyone.
Like stated above, it's Spurrier just being Spurrier in talking up an upcoming opponent.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Worst Lolla lineup ever.||
Worst Lolla lineup ever. However, I went yesterday, for Outkast primarily but also watched Temper Trap, Fitz and the Tantrums, a little Manchester Orchestra and, unfortunately Foster the People. We stayed on that side of the festival to be able to get good Outkast spots and that we did. They pretty much kicked ass. Crowd seemed pretty into it as well as I'm sure most people there really only knew the radio hits. Their hip-hop lyricism was on point though for the 90s stuff. It was all well done though and I'm glad I went.
Also did Cut Copy after show Friday night since they were opposite of Outkast last night. We were on the railing at the Vic theater for Cut Copy, feet from the band, and that show was a straight up dance party; amazing.

The march toward destruction is already and has been underway, and it isn't being/hasn't been done by those who think some kids should be paid a little dough.

So many viewpoints on all of this. I'm beginning to be in the camp of "Who gives a fuck at this point?!". It's bothered me to say that college players should be getting paid. But it really, really bothers me slick assholes in suits and orange jackets ARE getting paid...and getting paid A BOAT LOAD of money, off of said college kids and their talents and hard work.
Some say there's no money to go around from athletic departmens by the time paying for non-revenue sports is factored in. Fine. But how were they getting paid for before these huge Bowl payouts and before HUGE televison contracts?
The fact that there are people sitting in offices across the country doing little work (compared to the physical labor of athletes) yet banking off of these NCAA football and basketball players because they're a "Conference Commisioner" or are part of some theoretical Bowl Committee, pisses me off. They only exist because of what these kids are doing on the field/court...yet we can't find some of that money to acutally pay the kids. Eff that. The whole thing needs an overhaul and a lot of people need to be left jobless...or at least not making 6 and 7 figures.

RAGBRAI is a pretty cool thing. I've never rode the full week but I've done a few single days (60-80 mile days) and I drove a support vehicle for a team a few years back. I'm also not what one would call a cyclist enthusiast so I've never put in the off-season work to prepare nor the group/friends to, again, do the full week, but it'd be fun as all hell.
For those who don't know, Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa = RAGBRAI (The Des Moines Register). Sunday to Saturday, each day ranging from 40 to 80 miles, some days having a built in loop to get up to 100, plus, miles for a day. Many pass-through towns, 4-5 a day, built into the ride with many food and drink options across each small town. Towns prepare for the full day of riders passing through and do an awesome job of hosting said cyclists. Overnight towns are similar, usually bigger towns/cities than the rural pass through towns, making many camp sights across each town and it's surrounding areas for the thousands of riders to sleep. Overnight and pass-through towns are selected and announced each January for the upcoming late-July ride.

*This from a fairweather soccer/futbol fan. I don't watch on a regular basis but I've played many years of soccer, growing up and onto travelling teams during junior high so I understand the game fairly well. I'll try to get myself to watch more European futbol in the near future.
