- No launching or diving at another player, whether you're on offense of defense. Only time you're allowed to leave your feet before contact is to try to catch a thrown pass or lateral.

I really dont like this argument at all. if your job is obsolete it's time to learn a new profession. It may be tough for those affected in the short run, but that is sometimes the cost of societal progress.
think if we decided not to embrace automobiles because it woul put all the people who took care of horses out of work (shoeing, stablekeeping, etc)?

i think it was supposed to say Brady has been to more superbowls than these teams
the only teams not shown here are the steelers, broncos, niners, and cowboys (and patriots). Those are the only teams with 6 or more superbowl appearances (same as Brady).

all you people saying 'doesnt matter just win out' need to shut up. that is obviously the goal. this is a thought experiment to explore the possibilty of still getting into the cfp with a loss. not trying to get political, but the inability to make a plan B because you are just oh so confident in plan A is not a postive trait
this beef behind me, in this scenario i am assuming our one loss is to osu, not wisc in the b1g championship. if we lose to wisc i dont know what the committee would do. they may just punt on both b1g teams.
i'm unsure we get in ahead of a 1-loss clemson (even though i think we should). i would count them and alabama in, even with a loss. It's no point rooting for either of them to lose because it just opens the door for another team to steal a spot. That (along with osu) leaves one spot up for grabs.
i would say our major obstacles are washington and louisville. if washington loses, i think we get in ahead of them. if their loss comes before their conf championship game it's close, and even better if their loss comes in the conf championship (to colorado!). we may be in ahead of louisville already, but it's so close it's really hard to say. another loss for them would be nice in order to seal it.

I agree that scarcity is an important factor. While not terrible on their own, tootsie rolls are just everywhere. people give out handfuls of them. when eating the candy, you end up wading through a sea of tootsie rolls to try and find that last reese's or kit kat that hasnt been stolen yet. they are like your girlfriends bobby pins. weeks after halloween you will just find them in random places.

and the OP wasnt particularly inflammatory. if you just never want to hear rich rods name again why did you click through to this thread?
i (and im sure other michigan fans) wasnt super familiar with rodriguez before he came here, so it's nice to get some more context to his ability as a head coach.

i think you hit the nail on the head. not to bash the guy (too much) but i never thought of him as that smart of a guy. Just a dude with a good idea. and since you cant patent a system in football, everyone else is free to use your idea. once they did, he no longer had any real advantage unless he continues to innovate - which it appears he cant (or at least not as much as is needed).
i wanted to work in that quote of 'good writers borrow, great writers steal' but couldnt quite get it to work how i wanted

Did you forget to label them, or is the team with the #2 D outside your top 10?

Ill check out the Fantasy Footballers. listening now...
Just to clarify for those questioning podcasts being a good way to get info... i hear ya. it's not super efficient. I mostly just have it on without paying close attention. its more just to get general info that i may not have heard already. it's real useful if someone i was unaware of (who watches every game) gets injured and they discuss who might be a good replacement pickup. often i'll go research those peeps more, but i wouldnt even know to do that if i didnt hear it through the podcast.

you made me exhale through my nose faster than normal. thank you... here's my upvote
|47 weeks 21 hours ago||my two cents||
Not a fan of your first rule...
would this also make plays at the goalline where players leap over the pile illegal? or what about people leaping over defenders to avoid low tackles? Diving to block a punt/FG? I'm sure there are other non-dangerous plays this rule would eliminate that we would miss
I think your 'no lowering the head' rule provides better protection for players and that this rule is not really necessary
The tackle rule you propose seems great in spirit, but i think it would be incredibly hard to enforce. I think you need to elaborate with more objective definitions for what a tackle would be under this rule.

my parents in utero name for me was Gater as a portmanteau of their first names, Gail and Peter.
Unfortunately for the badass factor it did not stick, but i did come away with Anthony as a middle name in reverence of #1
