If you read his posts, he is clearly being ironic. Just like Hotel Putingrad. Those posters have more in common with Mean Joe than southerners who still proudly fly the rebel flag.

I feel like this should be a posbang.

Have previous Heisman Trophy winners been asked to make mistakes?

I knew he was that whole team, but I did not realize he used more than a third of those posessions. That is absolutely absurd. Also, WHY DID NO ONE GUARD EVAN TURNER AT HALF COURT??

Stafford is far from perfect, but this is so damn far from the truth. Last year's lions win maybe 4 or 5 games if you replace stafford with an average NFL starter.

Both are freakish athletes
|3 weeks 11 hours ago||Fullbacks||
Playing that position has more to do with attutide than athletecism.
When a fullback plays, his assignment is either "hit this guy hard" or "run this way and find someone to hit hard." They get a running start from the backfield so they don't need to be quick-twitch athletes.
We recruit all these great athletes for positions where all that speed, leaping, and flexibility matter, because those guys are more difficult to come by.
Those two (overly simplified) reasons why fullback is one of those positions that can more likely be filled by a student body walk-on. You need a stout, angry kid who enjoys running through walls. He doesn't need to be a D1 caliber athlete by the measurables.

Yes. I was absolutely disappointed in that decision as well. Just so you know that I am not presenting a partisan argument here, you should know that I have been been voting for less than a decade. I have actually cast ballots for Democrats and Republicans. I truely do not identify with either party.
The USA already has the most intense and extreme vetting progress for immigrants anywhere in the world. It is not even close. Every green card that has ever been granted has come after (on average) years of interviews, fingerprinting, and background checks through every channel imaginable. It is already harder to get into this country from anywhere else than it is to get a government clearance once you are here.
Trump's ban is blatantly targeted at Muslims. It is inhumane, and, in my opinion, Unamerican.
|4 weeks 13 hours ago||Trump.||
The president is a political figure. He has placed himself at the center of this issue with his rhetoric and his actions. The issue, however, is not a political one. It is a humanitarian issue. This isnt about the wall, which is a political issue. We are talking about human lives and human rights. The fact that our President is on the wrong side of a humanitarian issue is not a political statement or discussion. It is a fact.

I admire your enthusiasm WD. But this comment crosses the line for me. I will now neg you forever.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Hart almost never fumbled||
If he can make Ty Isaac stop fumbling, then we have an all-conference back to carry the load.
Seriously, though. Hart's coaching resume leaves something to be desired, but it would be silly to not give him a look. He knows the position, he is a legend here, and he is a firey competitor. Considering how candid he was with a microphone in front of him while he played here, I can't imagine him being anything less than a great recruiter. Also, I'd love the cheap laughs because of the height differential on the sidelines when he inevitably high fives a 6'7" OL

Wasn't Jaybaugh credited with digging the train up out of some old film? Every time we broke out the train it was multiple TE sets.

Yes, Wilson plays at a bigger position of need. That does not make him more desirable than the number one player in the country. I love our stable of tailbacks as much as the next guy, but Najee will start from day one, be an All American, make one or two trips to New York as a Heisman finalist, and be drafted in the first round after three years. He isn't Derrick Green or Kevin Grady. He's a slam dunk.
|8 weeks 7 hours ago||Yup||
So do All-American/Heisman finalist/1st round drafted tailbacks.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||You're missing the point.||
Both guys had a difficult time moving the ball. Smith was swarmed by several defenders every time he touched the ball. Nothing he could do about it. He grunts out a zero yard run or less. Evans is dangerous. He makes two guys miss and the third guy gets him by the ankle for zero yards. Same outcome by the numbers, but one of those guys is eventually going to make a play. That guy just isnt Smith

Needed to wrap up.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||De'Veon||
I love his toughness. I appreciate the fact that he's our best pass protector at that position. However, giving him the ball for 2 yard loss after 2 yard loss is an abysmal failure of this coaching staff. He is incapable of changing direction. Against a dominant front, you need a back who can create something on his own. Smith can turn 3 yards into 5, and he can turn 10 into 15, but if he cant get started, he goes nowhere. This was as frustrating to watch as poor damn Fitz Toussaint and 27 for 27.
Harbaugh/Wheatly giving De'Veon so many touches is the equivilant of Belein's previous insistence on playing Donnal over Wagner. It's the "safe" play but hurts the team overall.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Great news!||
If his noon throwing arm is what's hurting him, then he should be more than fine with his 8pm arm!
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Awesome breakdown.||
I'd love to see a continuation where we see just how good each of those teams were 3-4 years after signing these highly rated classes. We have seen a strong correlation between top-5 classes and championships. Is there a stronger correlation between these elite (300+) classes?
Great first post, OP. Informative and still left me wanting more.
