Chad Henne is doing okay. No sign of Denard.
|2 days 10 hours ago||I've seen it posted a few times in threads throughout the year.||
I remember specifically in the "What are you expecting?" thread for the Indiana game (right after the Penn State game) there was at least one pessimist predicting a sub 100k showing. Didn't come close to happening, of course.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Gotcha.||
|2 days 10 hours ago||You not a Bridgewater fan or something?||
You not a Bridgewater fan or something?
|2 days 13 hours ago||Conga lines with the professor?||
That sounds AWESOME.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Had to laugh.||
Had to laugh.
|2 days 15 hours ago||I don't know, man.||
I'm not gonna say the SEC is overrated just because everyone around here wants them so badly to be and I'm not gonna say they're awesome just because ESPN wants them to be.
Hopefully we'll get a bunch of B1G-SEC bowl matchups and see how it all shakes out.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Yeah||
but my point is that you remember that play regardless of the number worn. You don't confuse Butterfield with, say, Derrick Alexander in that instance.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Oh, look at that.||
The sky's not falling after all.
And people thought the 100k streak was gonna end this year...
|2 days 19 hours ago||But on the other hand||
then you've got jerseys like #21, which Junior had been wearing for five years before it was given the Legends treatment, so it's just as much his as it was Desmond's. So the flip side is that maybe the jerseys should only be given to freshman so that the number is fully theirs.
I don't know, man. I've got myself talking in circles.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I think the jerseys shouldn't just be given out||
As in, once the seniors wearing legends jerseys graduate, the coaches shouldn't just sit down and say, "Okay, who wears the number now?" It should be more like the #1 jersey, given when deserved.
|2 days 19 hours ago||It's been said before.||
They'll make their own legacies regardless of what number jersey they're wearing. Look to the #1s.
|2 days 22 hours ago||You're overrating legacy.||
Denard wore 16, so did John Navarre.
Braylon wore 1, AC wore 1, David Terrell wore 1. We don't get them mixed up.
Desmond wore 21, as did Biakabutuka.
Repeat numbers happen, but the legacies remain distinct.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Forgive me, but...||
...why? It's a fucking jersey. It's not some mystical Thing for which you need special qualifications. Hell, Vincent Smith wore it for four years. Never heard him complain about "making his own legacy."
|3 days 13 hours ago||Textbook.||
|3 days 13 hours ago||Surely you mean *voracity*||
But that's one hell of a rumor. You'd think someone would have noticed his age before now if it were true.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Is it too much to ask||
Is it too much to ask for a well-played, entertaining game in which one of them is guaranteed to lose?
|4 days 9 hours ago||Eh.||
It wasn't Mattison and the defensive staff's best year at any level.
|4 days 15 hours ago||I agree with you.||
I agree with you.
|4 days 16 hours ago||I have a strange sense of deja vu.||
As though this same argument was put forth this time last year.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Heard somewhere he was a senior.||
|4 days 18 hours ago||Coming from a uniformz-lover:||
It's not about recruiting and never has been. That's just an easy answer. They do it because it's a Cool Thing. Some people really like Cool Things. Dave Brandon, the players, and select members of the fanbase spring to mind. Some people don't like Cool Things, and other select members of the fanbase spring to mind. It's as simple as that.
|4 days 18 hours ago||The thing with Denard throwing @ ND||
The thing is that for a lot of the game he was eviscerating Notre Dame's secondary with throws. Big throw, big throw, big thr - oh crap, interception. "Okay Denard, don't do that next time." "Sure coach, no problem." Big throw, big throw - crap, another pick. And so on.
I don't blame the staff for making him throw it that much, honestly.
|5 days 6 hours ago||Yup||
|5 days 11 hours ago||Well said.||
This quote also perfectly encapsulates why, for so many years, we had a bowl system instead of a playoff.
|5 days 14 hours ago||I laughed like a hyena when I read this.||
Really. You have no idea.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Eh||
That'll happen when you give up 43, 47, 42 and 30 in the same season.
|6 days 17 hours ago||Why do I hate Duke?||
I don't. Never even knew a rivalry existed before last year and still don't think it should be called one.
|6 days 18 hours ago||Notre Dame||
Notre Dame would like to have a word with you.
|1 week 7 hours ago||Well, I can't take credit.||
But this picture was going around Twitter right after the ejection:
