Payton toiled for years on bad Bears teams and never bitched about it. Always played the good soldier. He played the game with enthusiasm unknown to mankind minus Harbaugh. He was right and Ditka was wrong.
And Ditka has admitted it since. He still needs to pay for it.

St Peter is going to stop Ditka at the pearly gates and ask him to justify not giving the ball to Walter Payton on goal line. And then he'll let Ditka look longingly for a moment before kicking him down to Hades.

Tony Eason >>> David Woodley

In that highlight film its fun to watch his DT snaps; when the guards & RB do something unexpected he solves the puzzle so *damn* fast.

Well, you certainly don't want a mess on your hands.

Biggest problem with this post is I can't posbang it 100 times.

Its apparent God invented football so that Khaleke Hudson could have an appropriate avenue to express his hatred of all humans not named Khaleke Hudson.

..... as Governor Snyder must realize now the great Lou Schimmel is the reason Michigan needed to perfect cloning.
Sorry. I'm a Lou Schimmel fanboy. And I've been harping on this for years; we need to clone Lou Schimmel.
I'll see myself out.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||it looks bad||
Then its the coaches' job to make that fact clear. Not by relying on Swenson to figure it out; tell the kid straight. No evasions. Tell the truth and do it earlier.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||i hope we can order more||
Please, we're almost out of exclamation points for the month.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||um||
Yeah, I hope there *isn't* a Hotel California in the great beyond.

I imagine Felder is savoring an adult beverage tonight, and smiling a wide smile.

Houghton and Houghton Lake are two different places. They are aren't even close to each other.

Ben's timing on help was exquisite. One of the best help defenders in the history of the modern game. All he asked of the guards was to not get beat by the very first move.
But Rodman was more versatile on defense. He could play on the ball against a variety of positions. And he was a fair help defender himself.
Daddy Rich even used the Worm against 5s now and then. Once saw Worm dominate Ewing for much of a 4th quarter once.
Best example of this was one night in Houston. Pistons up by one or two in the final seconds. Houston inbounds the ball deep in the frontcourt on the right side. Olajuwon gets the ball maybe 13 feet away from the basket.
Who is guarding him? Rodman. Help? No. Rockets had a lot of guys like Kenny Smith who could hit those open jumpers. Worm was all alone and it was by design.
Olajuwon methodically but easily backs Worm down until there are a couple ticks left. That ease lulled Olajuwon. He turned and went soft to the hole. Close enough to the bucket to dunk but he just kind of tried to drop the ball in.
Worm jumped while leaning back and timed it perfectly, getting just enough of the ball to keep it out of the hole. Buzzer sounds and game over. The team mobbed him knowing full damn well what he'd just done. Best individual defensive stop I've ever seen. Gave up ~8 inches and a gazillion pounds to a legit low post HoF'er and still got the job done. The look from Olajuwon was priceless.

Hans isn't dead. He's just on a beach somewhere collecting 20%.

Not all ME crude is light sweet crude. In fact some of Qatar's oil is heavy crude. And there is a reason why Saddam coveted Kuwait's fields far more than his own.

No, that's Alabama. Ole Miss only requires you to write A-C-T.

OSU could really use a decided schematic advantage.

I guess white boy basketball is ok.

Lighten up Francis.

1) in another venue these pancakes would be called war crimes.
2) I think young Mr Bredeson is hard of hearing. Either that or he thinks the whistle is just a suggestion.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||let me help||
You spelled "fevered" wrong.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||no||
A reasonable compromise would be letting him in after he shuffles off this mortal coil.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||we really want Aranda||
Aranda was the first - and only - DC to outscheme Chris Ault's Pistol. He is insanely bright.
|8 weeks 17 hours ago||I get it.||
Yes, that's the correct spelling. Joe Rodriquez.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||this hire has my approval||
Guy is legit. He has the ability to craft new ideas to suit his talent. The article doesn't say it but I wonder if Moorhead might bring along his OL coach Rodriquez. Rumors have swirled around Herb Hand and Rodriquez had a big role in Fordham's offensive success.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Last year MSU's back 4||
Last year MSU's back 4 weren't all that good. Against Oregon, OSU & Baylor watch how early before the snap the safeties would bail from their normal 8-9 yard depth. It was an admission they couldn't play their base D in those games.
BTW, in recent years Baylor has demolished teams that play a one-high deep safety. Worse than usual for them.

Given the way Jesuit education has declined it may have hurt not helped.
