"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Schneider is still several steps up from Pauly Shore.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Green didn't play safety either||
And Green was still playing *corner* when he retired. Probably could have played for 2 more seasons.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||he was missing his lucky charm||
Bobby Ross had Super Bowl experience because he got Ralph Friedgen to be his OC in San Diego. Ralph didn't join him in Detroit. Ross was not that great of a coach.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||the old man was loyal to a fault||
Well, Russ Thomas had an interesting qualification that gave him the job for a looooong time: he saved William Clay Ford from throwing his life away. Basically picked him up out of the gutter.

Friedman has 5 columns he just recycles on and on.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||intriguing idea||
Coach Ken can certainly get the job done, but he'd have to bring several staffers with him. OC Jasper is nearly indispensible. And there's been rumblings Jasper could leave for an HC job.

Truth to tell I wanted a soccer player for a son. Kids should be good at running around. A kid who runs - sprints, really - is a healthy kid.
Mine is not so much with the sprinting. Big arm though.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I studied this long time ago||
As a rule Massey is a stronger index than Sagarin.

This. My son is in 8th grade. We let him play middle school football this fall. This will be the first and last season he plays the game. He has the necessary size - quarter inch over 6' and 170 lbs. But no way am I letting him play HS football, not as long as F=ma.
He's a pitcher anyway.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I'm surprised no one||
I'm surprised no one mentioned Harbaugh pulling out spread trickeration. Rudock's TD was clearly a zone read. Unblocked DE crashed and Rudock pulled. They ran it again later in the game. One more thing for D'Antonio to prep for.
Prediction: after Chesson's end around was snuffed easily Harbaugh will have at least one counter off that action next week.

I don't always upvote, but when I do, I prefer MGoBrewMom.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Its too bad that location||
Its too bad that location closed. Someone should have burned it down. Hands down the worst BWW I'd ever been to. I've been to two-bit health hazard diners with better food. If the same folks are running the RO location I'd find somewhere else.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Uh, no||
24 Seconds no es bueno.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||In fairness to Whitlock AND||
In fairness to Whitlock AND Hoke the BSU prez definitely had an ax out for the football program. She personally treated Hoke shabbily. Despite this after he got the offer from SDSU Hoke gave the school a chance to match the offer. BSU came close, sorta. The offer was laden with impossible incentives while SDSU's money was basically guaranteed as long as he didn't shit the bed. And even if he did he'd still take home more than BSU's base by a good margin.

Different motivation there. The Wide 9 opens up a lot of those.

I just Bluth'ed myself:

Everything they do is so dramatic and flamboyant. It just makes me want to set myself on fire.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||communism sucks everywhere||
Sadly a lotta people think the USSR was a noble experiment. Even sadder a fair number in AA agree.
|12 weeks 1 hour ago||gracias||
I was, thanks.
|12 weeks 1 hour ago||Iowa question||
Anybody remember specifically when that rhabdo incident went down?
|13 weeks 3 days ago||play before was better||
The play before was a beautifully executed stick-draw. Dana Holgerson would approve.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||true but......||
Big Red did not fail in the Travers, he just got beat by a horse who had the best day of his life. IIRC Secretariat ran a 123 or 124 figure. In other words his lifetime average. A figure which Pharoah has never approached. And likely never will
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Don't be such an Ann hog||
It's as Ann as the nose on Plain's face.
I'll show myself out.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||you call it peace?||
I prefer a more accurate term like tribute. The Islamists had to be bought off to be your friend.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||The left hand takes what the||
The left hand takes what the right gives away. We had to invent the Marines to take out the Barbary Coast because Paris wouldn't do it. They figured the pirates - Islamists of their day - hurt the Brits even more so it was a cost they could handle. For centuries the entire Mediterranean coastline was dangerous to live on because due to North African pirates looking for slaves.
So eventually we & the Brits went in and did what the French could and should have done eons earlier; bomb the Islamists into the Stone Age.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||spill!||
Ok, make with the Schwarzkopf stories already.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||I'll take a shot||
1) Don't know; I've completely given up and wear sweats most of the time.
2) Even Steven's and All Chay look promising.
3) I like to rate the youngsters based on how I think they'll look when they get to my age. Brie by just a bit.
4) MICKEY CALLAWAY. MICKEY CALLAWAY, MICKEY CALLAWAY, MICKEY CALLAWAY. He's a hot prospect and will get a shot from somebody in 2-3 years. Let's be ahead of the curve and grab him now. Love what he's done with the Tribe staff. Is a progressive guy on player development.
There is no chance the front office goes with a first timer. But it's the right call.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||you may not know.....||
He enjoyed male fans as well. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Its time for Fran Tarkenton to shuffle off||
Given the way Stabler lived his life its amazing he lasted this long.
I wonder if Kenny's switch-hitting made it into his book.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||kinda sorta||
Well, the flexbone is *kinda* like the wishbone. Its really a cross between the wishbone & run-n-shoot. These days the R&S portion of the attack isn't run so much. But when the scheme was first used at Hawaii 25 years ago the shoot was a significant factor.
There are other differences as well. In the typical wishbone the fullback lines up much closer to the QB than the B back does in the flex. As a result the physical profile of a B back often looks much different than the traditional bone fullback.
