Agreed. Better than mine.

I would agree with you if he answered them in the general sentiment of the UM fanbase but did it in a respectful way. Saying things like Peppers is not Heisman worthy or that we all believe Jim is going back to NFL is WAAAY off-base, hence my reservations on his loyalty.

Ooops, My Bad. It is hard to distinguish numerous Florida trashing... Corrected!

I watched the entire game again just concentrating on watching Braden and Bredeson and I was really impressed. The combo blocks were as good as I have seen in awhile. Braden's pass pro was outstanding. The single sack he gave up was after the DE was trying move after move on an island.
Brede son really looked good on pulls, nice and shallow and quick, with lots of violence at contact. This may turn out to be a blessing in the long run.

This is a welcome news for us. Hopefully this means that Hornibrook will perform better against Ohio this week.

That is a black eye on this program, and to me, the worst legacy of the Hoke years.

Like any civil case, more likely than not.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||You should read more about||
You should read more about the other incident with the broken jaw. The students are pretty upset that the arrest took two months and players played right up to the arrest.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||No one is saying kick the guy||
No one is saying kick the guy off the team before he is found guilty. But most coaches would suspend the guy while investigation is happening. Leach is saying he would play thre guy until he is jailed. That is not right especially when it looks like he is recruiting pretty violent individuals to the campus.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Reasonable doubt is the||
Reasonable doubt is the standard for locking up someone. It should not be the standard for suspending someone.

Except that Leach thinks he should still play while he is arrested.

This is not anisolated incident. there are half dozen others involved with assault just this year.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This is not anisolated||
This is not ani solated incident. There are other players who started a brawl at a campus party and beat up another student so bad that he had his jaws wired shut and was hopitalized for weeks. This is part of the pattern that Leach is enabling.

Most sane coaches would suspend the player while investigation is going on. That is what Michigan does.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||So, you are perfectly fine||
So, you are perfectly fine with Paterno letting Sandusky coach since Sandusky was never arrested during his tenure? How about Baylor where many of his players were free to prey on students until they were arrested?
"innocent until proven guilty" is a legal concept designed to prevent government abuse. It should not be the standard doing what is right for the university.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Limiting contacts with||
Limiting contacts with recruit is done for the sake of the students, who would otherwise be bombarded 24/7. They are not limiting what coaches cand do to make money.
That does not apply for satellite camps where the students are voluntarily signing up (and paying for them). You are equating two completely different things. NCAA lawyers saw that as well, which is why they backed off in the first place.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Why is "flimsy" commitment||
Why is "flimsy" commitment bad? They are friggin' kids. They can change their minds, and they certainly should be allowed to when schools can fire and hire coaches whenever they want.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Not quite... Sports leagues||
Sports leagues can dictate quite a bit on what players can do because of collective bargaining (for pros) or enforcement of amateurism (for NCAA players). There is no collective bargaining between coaches and NCAA (and they are certainly not amateurs), and because of this they can only limit things that are directly related to competition (like practice times and scholarships).
However, they do not have such powers over coaches' employments. They cannot dictate how much they can work, they cannot dictate how much money they can make, etc. This is why limiting satellite camps to 10 days would probably not survive court challenges.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Mr Heisman, Jacksonn is also||
Mr Heisman, Jackson is also eating a ton of sacks (with similar pressure that Wisconsin brought today) and he is FAR more mobile than Speight. Anyone expecting no sacks under that kind of pressure has no real understanding of football.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||What???What you expect from||
What you expect from a first year underclassman starter is about what Hornibrook did. Speight was way better than that with similar amount of pressure on him. Speight will be fine. He is only getting better from here. The ability to escape pressure is pretty extraordinary for a non-mobile guys like him.

You have no idea who Peterson is...
He has already turned down USC job before (they offered him the job before giving it to Sark, and he had many other P5 offers before that), I don't know why he would take any other job when USC was not attractive enough.
He is a PNW guy through and through. He likes the pace and environment here. He is not going anywhere.

I am in the exact same boat. There is no better way to watch TV than with MCE. Microsoft really screwed the pooch by stop supporting it...

I would go easy on Leach worshipping.
This is a coach who has a player who is about to be charged with assault and is allowed to play next week. There are another group of players who punched a bunch of people at a party and none of them have had any suspensions yet (they are letting the "law work itself out").
|7 weeks 14 hours ago||You don't have to get rid of||
You don't have to get rid of pads, just get rid of hard shells. Hard shells are useful if you do not care about the object you hit. In a situation where you want to protect both the person getting hit and person delivering the hit, a hard shell is not warranted.

I will be up in Richmond this weekend as well. I still have not figured out how to watch the game in BC...

But Ace is countering his own argument by using points to talk about how much of a gulf there is between 1st tier and the 2nd tier. If you don't want people to use overall points to how to separate tiers, then don't do it yourself and do it selectively. Have a clear definition like tier 1 = top 10, tier 2 = top 25, etc.
|11 weeks 23 hours ago||Licensing is the least of||
Licensing is the least of their worries. I have created sports sims in the past (long past), and the amount of effort that is required is far more than a couple of random guys from Alabama can manage. There is a reason why all other sports sim companies have gone out of business over the past decade. Creating realistic 3D motions and graphics is extremely complicated and cost ridiculous amounts of money. The amount they are raising will barely cover the costs of developing the bare minimum 3D models. I highly doubt this ever gets off the ground.

Saying Tebow gave up on football is like saying I gave up on Gisele so that Brady can have her...

I cannot think of a single Fortune 500 company where a guy would not be fired instantly if you presented those slides at any event/meeting.
I know of an exec who resigned after a joke that he said which was much milder and shorter than this.
