As someone who went from playing football growing up (learning form tackling) to playing rugby at uni; you nailed the differences pretty spot on. The differences became apparent to me rather quickly as it took time to adjust to the rugby style, and I took quite a few forearm shivers to the face before getting my head behind the ball carrier became second nature.
Always appreciate your posts and input, and seeing this reminded me to visit your site more often.

Bummed to see him leave Nevada, but it would be fantastic to see him go blue. He really stepped up his game this year, and became a nice compliment to Burton.

P.S. Her twitter TL has some great anecdotes

I've always wondered how much money the NFL spent of getting pink accessories, and how much of that money could've been donated to research. But then again, a straight donation doesn't get the NFL as much press and good publicity as wearing a bunch of pink crap does.

No way he's a victim. Allegedly a family friend behind the fake twitter and such. His parents tied into it. If deadspin's investigation is as thorough as it seems he had to have known. Te'o can't be that naive.

Praise is the only thing a lot of these guys ever hear, so what's it matter that Magnus gives them a little criticism? On TTB he states that he's a high school coach, emphasizing on LB's and DL, which doesn't mean he's an expert, but he probably has a more technical understanding than a lot of us do.
I for one, appreciate his views on a lot of players. My only complaint is, I wish he posted more content, but it's his hobby/side job so I understand. The way he conducts himself reminds me a lot of my old DL coach in high school, who would tell you how it is.
P.S. - Coach Coombs, is that you?

Did great things for Nevada, but so many frustrating in-game decisions. Our AD is stepping down, so it's a pretty good bet he goes back to that role.
Hopefully Ault brings in some folks who will continue to run the Pistol effectively, but there definitely needs to be some change. It would be nice if he brings in a defensive mind with an agressive, gambler type attitude/atmosphere. Maybe take some chances rather than pussy foot around late in games with piss poor clock management. I get it's Nevada, but 8-4 should be the bar.

I'm not too keen on redshirt regulations, but is it a possibility that they want to preserve Richardson's redshirt?

Common theme with Ault these past 7 years or so. The only season he didn't choke away at least 2 games, was 2010 year we (engineering alum) had a RS senior Kaep. I'm not irrational, I'd gladly take 8-4 and playing second fiddle to Boise -please don't leave- but these choke jobs are infuriating. Whether it's shit clock management or crappy D, the conservative atmosphere the Ault has is sickening.

Yeah, TomVH touched on the coaching situations in Tenn and Auburn during his recruiting chat. They may make it more difficult if either makes a splash with big name hire. A big name coach will probably do more harm then good in either of those locations.

Pretty sure it's a legal formation, but the inside receiver that is on the line is not eligible.

|2 years 37 weeks ago||The offer||
Does the coaching staff pull the offer completely, or do they just consider him uncommitted? I mean, what if he visits Oregon, doesn't like and it wants to recommit? Is the offer still there?
I'm assuming this has been discussed before, but the old Conley/Dawson threads are lengthy and would rather not scour through them to find the answer.

Oh, to be 12 again. Lindsay was a fox.

Maybe you have higher standards, but I thought the girls of Boulder were pretty damn good looking. It took a handful of days before I spotted the first girl that wasn't fit. Or maybe it was indeed all the beer I drank.

It's a damn shame he's only 2 games above .500. I should double check, but during the begginning of his career there was about a two year period where he lost 12 or so games after giving up < 2 runs. He had his ERA around the high 2's low 3's and had a WHIP < 1 during most of that period too. The Giants just couldn't give him any run support. All in all, my family and I've been a Giant's fans for life, and it was amazing to see them win the Series in '10 and now to see Big Matty Cain throw perfection...it's tremendous.
I hope he's done flying under the radar because he's been consistently good going on about five years now.

I'm in the same boat, wishing rugby would catch on. Not necessarily as an elitist sport, but as a sport anyone can play. Because as you said, all you need is a ball, pitch, boots, and some ruffians. Rugby is starting to pick up in this area (Reno, NV) but no where near as fast as lax is gaining popularity.
