**Demanding and creating a market for prostitutes is bad. Women trying to support themselves who are usually also being badly exploited are not bad.

Seems like Schiano is taking the Jedd Fisch approach. Spend some time as an assistant under a highly successful HC to groom your coaching skills and then jump ship for a HC job where you can succeed.

Drevno doesn't strike me as a future head coach. Not sure why. I just don't see it.

Sorry, but I disagree. I saw flashes in Rawls that I really, really liked while he was here. When my then-untrained-football-mind was already screaming at the field to put Rawls in, I think it was more than misperception or hunch.
It wasn't consistent enough for him to be a starter, but with proper development--which he later received from better coaching--he maximized his potential. I saw the same kind of flashes in Deveon Smith, in that both demonstrated an ability that made them somewhat special runners, and both were underdeveloped by the previous staff. In the end, it seems Rawls may have been the better of the two.

No. The GIF makes it very obvious that the ball traveled from behind Leidner's body forward toward the line of scrimmage.

Wow. You're not kidding. That was a penalty. Evidenced by the fact that the long snapper was rolling on his back because he had no chance to get upright.

Great for him! Congrats Blake! Good luck--hopefully, he excels against all non-Michigan foe. Always enjoyed watching him play.

I was so dumbfounded ... that something called benovolent [sic] sexism can actually exist
Oh, okay. I can easily explain this concept to you. Let me just make sure I don't miss any part of your point....
men are biologically superior and thus like to help women out in certain circumstances.
You are kidding, right? I mean, hey, at least you're honest.
I cannot even begin to fathom this remark. It's like you have not even the basest grasp of what the word "biologically superior" actually means. Anthropologists used to think this way based on measuring the circumference of the skulls of non-white humans. They found that the skulls of non-white people were smaller. Therefore, they argued, their brains were smaller. The narrative they then fed was that whites are intellectually superior.
Look--anyone can look at Twitter flame wars and Tumblr microaggressions blogs and then claim they're ridiculous. But if you do not have even the most basic understanding of all the political theory and philosophy that underly critiques of Western cultural constructions, then PLEASE do not remark upon them. That'd be like me saying, "Ugh, Linux operating systems are the worst," based on five (or five hundred!) remote interactions with the interface. In reality, I know nothing about Linux: I have never used it, and I do not intend to use it. I might not like the aesthetic, and I may think that because I have seen it in action, I understand it enough to pass judgment. In reality, I have not spent any time trying to understand deeply why it is so commonly used, and I am therefore not remotely qualified to comment on the efficiency of the OS or the wisdom of its users. In turn, I should trust that Linux has some degree of utility and makes sense to at least a certain user base. Otherwise, it would not be so popular.
This thread is swiftly becoming a candidate for closure because it is becoming political. But my point is this: Instead of just deeming something foreign as bad and wrong because it offends your sensibilities of what should be said and done, consider that there are literally millions of people--many of them both more successful and resonant than either you or I--who have over the course of centuries studied, written, and organized against sexism, including benevolent sexism. Until you have engaged with that interface on more than the most basic level, please refrain from commenting.

This. This is how we know that too many sports analyses are simply wrong: It feels like every story is really just sensationalized garbage. Jones is nothing of the QB that Miller and Barrett are. Honestly, he was as successful as he was because the team's he faced (1) couldn't defend his deep ball, and (2) Ezekiel Elliott opened up the field for him to raid. Absent Elliott and a similar caliber RB, Ohio does not win with Jones at helm.
