I'd say Iowa has lost that gamble. They will have this one flash in the pan to go with the one in like 2001 or whatever, and then still be stuck with Ferentz for another 5 years of mediocrity after this.

Maps of the Earth are flat.
|1 week 2 days ago||You thought you'd clear it up||
You thought YOU'D be the one to clear it up, 24 hours after Wolverine Historian cleared it up in the game write-up post, and numerous people mentioned it in the original message board post claiming the stat?
How humble of you to do the work and take credit.

What? Respectfully, maybe you've had personal experience, but "too cloistered"? The long-term effects of a stroke seem like a very technical area that I would imagine most people without medical background and/or personal interaction wouldn't know much more than basics.
People lose certain motor skills, seemingly on half of their body. Is that in all cases (I assume not) and what does it depend on? Is it possible to lose motor skills on both sides of the body? Does it impact brain function or is it purely physical? Can one rehabilitate that or is it permanent? Does the condition worsen over time even without further strokes? Does having one raise the likelihood of having another?
Maybe you know all the answers to these questions on long term effects, but I would guess 95% of people don't.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Neither||
Neither Georgia nor Auburn are anywhere near the playoffs.
So one could very easily root for results that help with recruiting AND results that help with playoffs.
And for the record, the Georgia/Auburn game was not exactly tire fire, but definitely cripple fight.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Well they did lose||
Well, point of fact, OSU DID lose that game. Then about 5 minutes after the game was over, a ref decided he'd like to change the outcome and toss a flag.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I hardly follow||
hockey at all, but it's odd you would question how anyone could favor college hockey over junior hockey. This is a blog focused on the beauty of college football, which is clearly "inferior" football compared to the NFL skill level (see also college basketball:NBA).
It's pretty obvious that there are a ton of reasons why one might prefer one tier of a sport over others, not based solely on the skill of the product on the field (rink...court... pitch).
|3 weeks 2 days ago||The reason||
YOU don't want it locked so you can state YOUR opinion while not entertaining any dialogue, is exactly the reason it was locked.
For the record, I don't know shit about any side of this, but it's clear you're not looking for a conversation.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I wonder||
when you're doing your job and you present your work product to someone, if the very first reaction they have is to say to themselves, "well that guy is not attractive."
|4 weeks 2 days ago||He's trying||
to fit a narrative somehow, someway, don't stop him now.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Ignore the "trust the coaches"||
Ignore the "trust the coaches" arguments, because those are lazy. But it is preposterous to me that anyone would find it UNACCEPTABLE to burn a redshirt in efforts to win a game which quite literally came down to inches.
The team wanted to win this game, the one they were playing, the one right in front of them that was back and forth all night with injuries all over, hanging in the balance on a knife edge with one play here or there potentially swinging the game. You can't just throw away games that are winnable.
For all we know winning this game is the difference in perception to a top recruit of "program returning to dominance" vs. "program still in rebuilding".
|4 weeks 3 days ago||What was totally missed by the announcers on that "fumble"||
What was totally missed by the announcers on that "fumble" is that the guy who recovered it only had possession when his own foot was out of bounds
They only let it run past the actual fumble a couple times and never mentioned it, but that was clearly not possession totally in bounds
|4 weeks 3 days ago||He really didn't||
He really didn't "almost fuck us." He touched it without anyone around, knew he touched it, and was not under pressure to gain control of it. Everything after that was just dumbasses in the announcing booth and on the field not knowing the rules (potentially including Peppers, but doesn't change the fact that he didn't need to do anything other than gain position of it in the endzone)
It's the same instinct that saves us 15 yards of field position on a lot of the punts when he sprints forward and dives to make the catch.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I look at it this way||
I look at it this way (now....after several whiskeys and some time)....
At some point next year on our way to the national championship, we're gonna get some huge bullshit break that we don't deserve, and we'll all say "we paid for that with MSU 2015."
And everything will be in its right place.
Yesterday I woke up sucking a lemon.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||What do you mean "Actual QB"||
What do you mean "actual quarterback"? It was Hogan who threw that ball, and if you don't think Harbaugh would trade Rudock for Hogan in a heartbeat, then you're completely irrational.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||That wasn't MACtion||
It was the Fun Belt.
For the record, the Big Ten's silly moniker is just Big "Ten."
(shakes fist at Delaney, though is actually ok with Nebraska....but screw PSU, or at least all of their fans and any living person associated with the school...the school itself is ok. just ok. i'm done.)
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Plural||
I think you mean, Les Bleus, making us "The Blues".
|7 weeks 2 hours ago||You literally||
can't think of any other criteria to judge a coach by other than win-loss record? Like there are no other factors? Because then Larry Coker is the bestest eva, and Harbaugh was mediocre at Stanford.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I always find the||
I always find the dance/football thru the legs afterward funny since Avant is like the most humble unassuming guy in the world (let one WR, typically a prima Donna position)
|7 weeks 5 days ago||On the other hand||
these Husky players are totally undisciplined, hitting the QB late and high, they're gonna blow this game through penalties. It's just dumb.
You're trying to win the game, check your machismo at the door.
Nonsequitor - Sark is such a joke, he's like Lane Kiffin but without the nepotism and also without even the limited success that Kiffin has had.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I'm a little confused||
why these types of posts, like Cleveland pro sports or Chicago pro sports, are left to stand. I guess it's kind of geographically close and there are a few more fans than maybe Minnesota Twins fans or Charlotte Bobcats fans. But there are probably just as many fans of "national" pro teams on this site, like the Cowboys or the Lakers as there are any given Chicago or Cleveland team.
If there was a "Hey everyone, isn't it awesome the Cowboys won a playoff game!" post, I have to believe that'd get deleted pretty quickly. Even if you label something OT, there are limits.
There are Cubs blogs for crap like this if you want some camaraderie
("don't click on it if you don't want to read it!" blah blah blah, there's got to be a limit somewhere)
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Disagree||
That ball that Chesson dropped, yes Chesson should catch it, but that is NOT a "nice deep ball." Chesson is going across the field, and the throw is back behind him, forcing him to adjust over his shoulder on his direction of his route.
That's a better thrown ball than some of his other ones in that it actually hit a guy's hands, but it's still not a nice ball.

if you enter in your location and provider here:
They'll tell you whether it's on basic or alternate. But as stated above, I believe MICH is the primary national broadcast, I'm in Oregon and it's on the main channel.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||That's just how||
a QB for UConn tends to look
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Eh||
I don't know if its breaks. The penalty is a penalty by the letter of the law. And the onside kick BYU was perfectly ready for, that didn't catch anyone off guard.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||These refs are really bad||
They seem to be a bit worse against BYU but just generally are really bad. Bad spots, inconsistent calls, a head ref who looks like Cowboy from Full Metal Jacket. Just a rough crew all around.
|9 weeks 2 hours ago||Wait Burbridge is a star?||
After 3 years of being somewhere between non-entity and mediocre, he has a handful of good games (and one nothing game) against terrible teams and he's a star?
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Lousy Sullenberger||
Man never drank a Duff in his life.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||i'm pretty certain||
the Terps are demoralized every time they step on the field these days.
As we stand here right now, (with Maryland down 38-0 in the 3Q), Caleb Rowe is 5/21 for 24 yards and 3 picks.
In light of some of the comments here from last week, THAT is what a dumpster fire at QB is.
