Once ESPN Plus started carrying the crap games regionally in the early 1990s, they've all been on TV somewhere. Last one I recall not being on TV was 1991 at Minnesota, played on a Friday night because of the Twins/Braves World Series. It is possible that there was one since, but it would have been a MACrifice.

It's not the same crime. Goodell's crime (probably) is that he seems to have completely underestimated the public's distaste for brutal domestic violence and gave Rice a complete slap on the wrist after, at best, the most cursory of investigations that featured Goodell interviewing the victim in the presence of her attacker. In the face of public scrutiny, the league officials, including Goodell, have offered up versions of what happened that are all over the place. Goodell's official position was that the league officials never received, let alone saw, the tape, which has been proven to be false. So there appears to be either i) a massive case of institutional incompence, or ii) a massive institutional cover-up. Either way, Goodell is in charge.
A couple of years ago, Goodell threw the book at Sean Payton over Bountygate, saying publicly that "ignorance is no excuse." Here, he's using ignorance as an excuse. Goodell needs to go.
P.S. Whether Goodell is the commissioner or not, the NFL will go on and this challenge to his leadership has no bearing on whether you continue to "f@cking love football."
P.S.S. I'll leave this right here:

I bought mine at Meijer, so you probably shouldn't have much difficulty finding it pretty much anywhere.

I don't hate our band at all. I just feel like it's at its worst when it a) tries to do comedy (because it's awful at it and it's embarrassing to make fun of schools that we have beaten once in seven years), and b) dances. It does both way too often.

Don't get too excited. He'd be coaching the Cowboys next year.

Thanks, guys. This was one of my favorite annual bits you do and this was a worthy final chapter for the LETHAL BUTT INJECTION section alone.

It's probably just based on your experience as a fan of one of the schools that you view them to be so different from each other. Both are well funded, big time traditional college football programs with top notch facilities. I think the experience for the recruit/player is likely very similar. Probably the same for ND/PSU.

I love optimism and hope you are right. But do yourself a favor and start wearing a cup.

Ah, okay. I was thinking it was a player thing for some reason.

Hall of Fame question:
Is it limited to players that actually, you know, were measurably great? Or is it open to the gritty player who grittily showed the most grit?

Fucking hell, are those black arm stripes? So not only uniformz, but late 80s uniformz.

Trust me when I say that the NCAA doesn't give a shit about what you, I, the media or anyone else thinks. You can stop patting yourself on the back.
My theory is that this is a quarantine move. The Power 5 have a massive antitrust problem when it comes to football. By separating them from the remaining schools, the NCAA can limit its damage to the past (because the remaining conferences may have TV deals but they aren't nearly as lucrative as the Power 5) and potentially ensure its continued existance no matter of how a court rules (although the NCAA basketball tournament contract is still problematic).
Under this theory, the Power 5 are taking most of the antitrust liability, which they would have the power to rectify economically in a way that doesn't require Sun Belt and MAC schools' approval and wouldn't drive them into massive deficits.

Every year around this time, I see the list of big backers and wonder if Brian and David Callahan ever get pissed at anything I post and shout, "YOUR NAME ISN'T EVEN CALLAHAN, YOU SON OF A B----!"

It's just narrative based on perception. Unfortunately, we're set up as Rocky with OSU as Apollo Creed.

When this first came up, I didn't have a problem with it because I thought it was postgame. But TD fireworks? Why not just install the General Motors dancing fountain?

I don't mind it. It's the post-game version of a flyover. Most importantly, it has nothing to do with the game. Don't want to see it? You don't have to stay.

If you want to see some bullshit 40 times, watch The Opening. I stumbled upon it the other night and they were claiming guys were running 4.27s. Yeah, sure. High school kids running times faster than Chris Johnson's official NFL combine record.

Thanks. I hope remembering that doesn't bring back the rest of it.

It does when revenue = extreme profit largely because the product involves people that aren't allowed to be paid.

I don't think it's as much "making Michigan football do what they want" as much as "if this is what you're turning it into, I'll spend my money elsewhere." Besides, assuming you're right and if that's really the aim, it's much more effective than buying tickets and not showing up, as some have suggested for the Appalachian State game.

It would be great if everyone would stop questioning the fanhood of others because they choose to enjoy things in a different way than you would have.
