Taking the helmet away is too dramatic.. Personally I don't like the idea of removing the face masks either, but if you want a solution, there it is.
Helmet would be a lot like a hockey helmet but would be an open face with no visor or anything.
But PERSONALLY, I am for the majority of football lovers that say these guys understand the inherent risks.. We are so soft as a society now.. Humans have a physiological need to compete within them, especially men.. And I am not trying to be misogynistic...It's certainly in women too...
All the Gladiator, hunter, competitor, comparisons hold water with me.. So I PERSONALLY say grow the F up and concussions are going to happen.. The higher level football leagues have done enough.. It is all out in the open now.. If you wanna play football then play.. If not, don't...
But if you want an answer that will change the game as we know it, that is to remove the facemasks.

Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.

Thank you, for recognizing the snark. It's always good to start your Tuesdays off with a hearty cup of snark.

That the newspaper business isn't out of business because the lack of being able to adhere to the block quote rule. I think the Internet and information availability played a small part.

Is this a known nickname for Mattison, or just given to him for this thread?
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Can somebody catch me up||
Sorry, I have filtered through a lot before asking this, but can somebody catch me up as to why Hackett is stepping down. Through a couple of posts, people have referenced retirement. Is it voluntary and Hackett is choosing to be done? I ask because it seems obvious, but why wouldn't he just stay and get the interim tag removed?

Where does the rarely seen "Double-Directional" State University fall on the hierarchy? Southwest Missouri State? Southwest Minnesota State? Among others???

I heard Oakland was still in play.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Not sure why you got downvoted||
I honestly couldn't agree more.. Taking a middling big-school in a power conference does not seem to be the correct route for coaches.. Its hard to win and it affects your record too much. Take a strong program in a weaker conference when those job open up, kill it, and you look like the next head coach guru.. Even RR is trending down now. People love to hire the 11-1 (Insert MAC, AAC, team name here) rather than a 4-8 Power 5 coach.

On the healthy part... but also agree on Minor being a beast.... when healthy LOL

That stat seems about right to me... A little troubling, but its nice to not have to hit the panic button anymore when seeing a stat like that.. Harbaughs got it under control.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Overlap||
I am luke-warm on the overlap...Maybe I am the exception. I find it hard to really get into basketball during football and I would LIKE to care more about UM hoops during Nov./Dec. but don't find myself following it closely enough since I was in Ann Arbor.. Either way, I will agree that its a great Tues/Wed filler!
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Correct||
You are correct, I use the term face-guarding more to explain that being turned towards the receiver heightens chances of PI, but yes.. You are correct, it is only written as illegal professionally.

The Best Damn Blog in the World!! TBDBITW!! Cheers to Brian, this blog has also taught me about 50 different meanings of acronyms, so of course its educational!
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Exactly||
I would say that it happens enough that run defenses recognize the risk. Contain is there for a reason, not letting an HB draw get to the edge when the gap assignments are filled comes down to either the OLB's or CB's or even a Safety depending on the play call.. You are correct.

|1 year 18 weeks ago||Yes to increased likelihood but...||
The risk/reward here favors a last second reading of the eyes and with minimal contact, face-guarding isn't going to be called. If a DB always turned his head back to the ball, they would be getting burnt all day unless they are freaks ala Richard Sherman,,,,who still got hurt by it on Sunday Night in the Michael Floyd TD catch.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Quick Response||
Thing 1 - Proper tackling and wrapping up in football is much harder than it looks, good RB's should be able break arm tackles or half blocked tackles and "bounce off" unless the DL/LB is a beast....... Thing 2 - Another task that is highly easier said than done. Proper defense is having an arm on WR and being able to swing head back around for vision of the ball, but staying with a highly athletic WR who knows where they are going and you don't as DB is a task in and of itself. It is coached that as a last resort, to read the receivers eyes as the ball comes in if the WR has a half a step on you. Yes, it is more likely to be called PI, but if there is minimal contact, face guarding isn't a definite PI.

If the "/s" isn't universally accepted, and someone writes a sarcastic sentence using /s, essentially saying I am being sarcastic about my sarcasm, doesn't that cross out the sarcasm within said sentence??? Anarchy reigns supreme!

I too don't have an opinion on the matter but if the three coaches prior to a Bo didn't know they existed, then our population is a lot of coaches that I certainly don't mind disagreeing with.. If our extensive tradition without helmet stickers consists of basically Carr/RR/and Hoke... The the only part of that "tradition" I want to remember is Carr and Denard and I'll gladly take the helmet stickers.
