I would be shocked if every single FBS team did not have AT LEAST a few players taking PEDs. This includes Michigan.

Holy shit, thank you. There is no such thing as manball! And the idea that it does exist really hinders discussion of the offense.

Has to be a good sign that this comes soon after a Michigan visit.

I agree about the return of unlimited pos/neg bangs. I think the better solution would be if every poster had a limited allocation of up/down votes per day. Hopefully it would make people think a little more about what they choose to vote on rather than negging everything they disagree with or upvoting mildly funny jokes that don't really add much.

Why is this flamebait and the post he was responding to that was more pro Michigan and probably less accurate have a score of five?

But don't you feel like it's been trying to ram its personality down our throats a little more the last year or two? Everything always has to be quirky or a meme. No one ever says "run-first pro-style offense" anymore, it's always "MANBALL." Things like this get tiresome after awhile and what used to give this blog personality is now very overbearing and often unnecessary. (Not that this stops me from checking this site a thousand times a day.)

Not even a warning before ejection for targeting?
|2 years 24 weeks ago||EDIT||
That should be four players without an "excuse," but I think my point still stands. Also, it's been awhile since I've posted here and I cannot find a way to edit my post. Any help, please?
EDIT: nevermind about the editing thing, for some reason only my first post didn't have an edit button

Thanks, wish I could help you with the Lions salary cap but I'm not a fan and don't follow the NFL closely enough to know the nitty gritty of how the salary cap works.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||I posted this on another forum but I think it's relevant here:||
While I think it's possible that they're paying recruits, I don't find it probable. Let's break down their recruiting class. Of their 27 commits, 16 are consensus (Note: when I say consensus in this post I'm referring to the 247 composite rankings) 3-stars. Of their 7 consensus 4-stars, four (two of them Jucos) are from Mississippi, a state notorious for keeping it's talent home despite rarely having a decent instate program. Now let's look at the four 5-stars that are getting everyone's panties in a bunch. One (Tony Connor) is a local kid, Nkemdiche's brother plays for Ole Miss, and another (LaQuon Treadwell) has a good friend and former teammate (Anthony Standifer) who also currently plays for Ole Miss. So all in all, there are three highly rated players, out of 27 total commits, who don't have an immediately obvious "excuse" for choosing Ole Miss. Now considering that Freeze came in to the job with a reputation as an excellent recruiter and the fact that recruiting can be pretty momentum-based, I find the evidence for any cheating to be circumstantial at best.

Is it just me or does Evan Turner look like a Navi?

I used to be conflicted over whether or not I wanted Ohio State to win, but now that it appears obvious that they're about to win, I want so badly to see them choke. I think the shots of osu fans celebrating in the stands were what convinced me that I'm rooting for the Ducks.

One thing I've noticed is the amount of time that Barkley has had to throw compared to Tate. If our o-line lives up to expectations over the next couple of years, Forcier could put up huge numbers.

ACC: UVA is first, I'm considering it for college and I have a cousin who went there. Also, Virginia Tech and Clemson because I have a cousin at each. Also also, Georgia Tech for the triple option.
