Give me a break. The spot is not the only issue we have with the game. Pass interference calls on critical third downs, the spot that frankly was bullshit and badly reviewed, the fact that one of the refs had been banned from officiating for poor performance in the past, the fact that one of the refs was an Ohio native and self professed fan of Ohio State, the cheap shot Weber threw right in front of the official that wasn't called, I can keep going but I don't want to. Go away. We didn't ask for your two cents on how your team somehow came away with a win when your team has been the most penalized team in the big ten all year but somehow cleans up all of that for just two penalties for six yards in the biggest game of their career against their worst rival. It wasn't just the goddamn spot. Go back to eleven warriors if you don't like what you're reading here.

It doesn't really matter where you're drafted as long as you're a first round pick. Obviously there are busts but the average NFL career of a first rounder is 11 years. The average for anyone past the first round is 3 years.

Doesn't matter. Have some class. At the end of the day he's a guy in a uniform playing a game. Be better than that.

We're gonna have a real problem if we can't stop the run against a 2-5 team. Come on now.

Shot in the dark here, but could Purdue be an attractive landing spot for a guy like Bo Pelini? They can certainly pay him more, he wasn't a slouch at Nebraska, and he can recruit.

A safety in the opening drive of the third quarter, Rashan Gary rushes and tackles the running back for a loss. Michigan wins 37 - 17.

Interesting that your apparent perspective and experience with mental illness is the equivalent of looking through a window from the far side of a room.

Not really a blunder. Go for the field goal and the win and the NC slot, which was 57 yards I believe, or take a knee and go into overtime. It's just improbable that it'll happen on a field goal where you have your linemen defending a kicker versus a squad ready to tackle the return man.

I live in Ohio and frankly, I was flabbergasted when Cardale was named the starter at the beginning of the year. My thought process was simple. Would OSU have lost the National Championship with JT at the helm? If the answer was yes, then Cardale should be the starter. If the answer was no, then JT is the right man for the job. That's not meaning any disrespect for Cardale. But the fact is that the TEAM was clicking on all cylinders when they hit the B1G Championship and Cardale happened to be put into a position to succeed. That being said, now that they've handed the reins over, OSU is about to become more dangerous. They're a better team with JT and they are going to figure that out in a hurry. It's going to be a showdown come November.

You seem to have forgotten the year that open tryouts were posted for kicking and punting because those units were so bad. I think it was 2008. So yes. Use a scholarship for a kicker. Special teams are important.

Michigan fans think it's hilarious that you let Maryland score. At home. Considering their offense is ranked 90th in the nation. But good job guys.

Ehh. The only thing more obnoxious than OSU fans prancing about their NC is Cleveland fans whining about a stubborn lack of one.

Did it occur to you at any point that it might be a bad idea to ask strangers for a picture of shirtless college boys? That might have been a substantially important clue.

That's what I was saying, Jesus must be on defense because that shot was all like NOPE.

To be honest, I don't really care about Starz. We have lots of kids who were highly ranked already. We need development and coaching. Effort. A killer instinct. I'm glad highly rated recruits are interested in Michigan but Hoke was a good recruiter too. Wins solve a lot of problems with recruiting.

Well the announcers did say that they had record setting crowds with people still coming in. Hopefully they fill up.

|1 year 26 weeks ago||Women have to be a little||
Women have to be a little more passive aggressive than that. We get a lot of revenge on the base paths. I can't begin to tell you how many times I rung the bell of a bad attitude player. I was a third baseman and sometimes I'd just let the ball hit her in the back on a pickoff play. I'd put a little more mustard on a tag than needed or I'd aim for a sensitive place. Getting revenge at the plate is harder because the game is so much faster and the base paths are shorter. Pitchers will keep the ball high and tight on players but not in the numbers. I can say for myself that I was not a nice ballplayer.

It is frowned upon. There are just different ways of dealing with it in softball.

The NCAA could solve everyone's problems and let full-scholarship athletes get part-time jobs, ESPECIALLY out-of-season.

I called that as soon as news broke that he was transferring. It keeps FSU relevant at the very least.

I coach softball. The most dedicated thing that I do is work hard at helping my players pursue their goals in the sport, and most of them want to play in college. That's what I push for. I want them to succeed.

For every one Ccijanovic that dares to speak up about the powerlessness of a student athlete, there are hundreds who stay silent because of the derision that the one experiences. Being told to "man up" is why we have concussion lawsuits. We can't have it both ways - complaining that coaches make too much money and the NCAA has too much power and then scorning kids who rely on these sports for scholarships for not being grateful for their education.

I'm interested to see if part of the due diligence on behalf of the Seahawks included determining where other teams had him ranked on their draft boards. He went in the second round, which tells me that the Seahawks weren't the only ones interested in him early. I'm not convinced that the Seahawks didn't do their due diligence. I think they assessed the liabilities and decided that he was worth the PR risk. The Seahawks also didn't have a glaring need for a DE which tells me that they might handle the fallout a little better than other teams that need depth at the position.
