Good perspective. I never really considered the track record of not developing a back-up. You figure he has 4-5 scholarships tied up in QBs, so it's reasonable to expect #2 QB to be serviceable if #1 QB goes down. That right there is an indictment on the staffs inability to develop players.

I concur with both comments. However, given that both places are typically packed on game days but aren't today - a day where a "reasonable" person might want to park closer to the stadium - I think the stadium is gonna have a lot of empty seats. Unless of course everyone decided today was the day they were going to park further away and get their pre-Thanksgiving cardio workout in.

Drove by Pioneer on my way to my daughters bball game and that lot was barren. Both golf courses had hardly any tailgaters. Gonna be a lot of open seats today.

Regarding this Blum guy: was this loan 'personal' as in "no collateral" by the signee or was it 'personal' in that Blum loaned them his own money? If it's the latter and the guy fronted them $2M of his own cash, then he's entitled to charge whatever interest the two parties agree to.
Also, it appears this loan is non-secured, in which case 12% isn't that outlandish. Go to the bank and try to get a "line of credit" loan, you are looking at rates from 9.5% to 13.5%.
I think the bigger issue is why Jack's parents were borrowing this money, not the entity or person who was underwriting the loan.

I keep hearing this, but I've never seen it referenced in a news report. Who is the source for this info?
|1 week 3 days ago||But your spending all the||
But your spending all the time on getting the first score when you need two scores. Take the quickest and easiest score available. Which was the FG. Either way, your fate relies on the onside.
|1 week 3 days ago||Probability of getting 3 was||
Probability of getting 3 was greater than getting 7 at that position. Yes, a FG then makes the TD after the onside even more difficult. But scoring a TD there would eat valuable time (1:25 left) and again, it's not even a guarantee you get 7. QB has thrown a couple picks already. Minny kept shooting themselves in foot on Third and short. I liked the call - even if I'm in the minority.
|1 week 3 days ago||What's the point of scoring 7||
What's the point of scoring 7 if it uses all the clock? You don't even get a shot at the tie because the TD ate all the clock. Take the gimme FG and if you get the onside you can go for the TD. Don't expect everyone to agree with this, but I liked it and see the rationale.
|1 week 3 days ago||Kill was trying to save||
Kill was trying to save clock. FG makes it a one position game. Either way you need to get the onside. Take the easy points now (FG) and try the hard stuff if/when u get the onside.

I disagree. You assume the 7 is a given and they don't use all the clock. I actually like this strategy.
|1 week 3 days ago||You get 7 here but use all||
You get 7 here but use all the clock, then it's a waste. Now they can get 3 and hope they get the onside.

So, what you are saying is in order to defeat the opponent I need a player that is not currently on my roster? Can I improvise with a less mobile version? Say a bent coat hanger and duct tape?
|1 week 6 days ago||If you go into this thinking||
If you go into this thinking the next hire is "the next Brady Hoke", well then you might as well just stick with what you have and accept being a mediocre team.
However, what if the next hire is "not the next Brady Hoke"? Isn't that a possibilty too? Maybe the next coach turns out to be "the next Nick Saban/Bo Schembechler/Urban Meyer"? Are you not willing to take the risk of potentially hiring a better coach? Afterall, given the last 4 years, I think we know what kind of coach we have now and he's not meeting expectations.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||I just don't see it||
I just don't see it happening. Yes, I think the team will "get up" for the game. However, I don't see the coaches going balls out. This team is what is - a .500 squad. If there were anything left in the tank/playbook, it's my hopes the coaches would have used it to win one of the 5 games this team lost as opposed to holding it until the final game of the season. Lastly, if Devon is injured - and it's pretty clear he is - it would be gross negligence for the coaches to risk his health by putting him in a position to suffer further damage. Calling more designed QB runs would do exactly that. I would settle for more accurate passes, fewer dropped passes and a RB that could hit the correct hole. That's what this team needs most, not more Devon runs.

Barrett only has 10 yds rushing. He's not beating them with his legs, he's doing it with his arm.

There are 115 players on a collegiate team. Yes, Luck was really good. However, so was their Oline, running backs, defense, etc. He's proven he can both recruit talent and develop it. Something we've not seen here in years.

In Indiana you get an operating under the influence if you register .02 or higher and are a minor.

Oh, well, he won't be at Arizona much longer. So we will no longer have to hear about how successful he has been in the PAC 12. Unfortunately, he will likely end up at Florida, and then we will have to hear about how successful he is in the SEC.... sigh
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Exactly! No way Hoke plays||
Exactly! No way Hoke plays Morris. Why would he? An experienced Morris in 2015 does Hoke no good if he's let go - and he has to know that's what he's facing. So, he's gonna ride it out on the back of his 5th year Senior QB.
