First constipation and note diarrhea. What's up with these shitty commercials?

Your personality online totally makes sense after watching you in that video.

Oh, you're one of those guys...

It's funny that you say that because I see lots of NFL guys (of which we haven't had many recently) including Denard Robinson and Jake Ryan. There are also guys like Roy Roundtree who were huge for the program. So, you see lots of misses and I see UTL.

They had almost all Juniors and Sophomores last year. They return almost everyone and betting in another talented class. I think we'll see them take a big step this year.

I don't follow recruiting as closely as I once did. Do we know if he was potentially one of the greyshirts that was in the class? Maybe he thought he had a scholarship and then found out that he'd have to greyshirt. With the news more recently that we'd be taking up to 30, it would kind of fit that story.
Also, recruits get workout plans for how to prep before they show up. Maybe he hasn't been following those and that's why he hasn't been progressing.
Regardless, it sucks that he's finding out 2 weeks before the recruiting deadline. This also doesn't sit well with me and I'm just hoping that there is a good explanation for why this happened this way, not that we'll ever find out.

Crystal Skull is underrated simply because people hate on it.
Crash was phenomenal.
Early Adam Sandler stuff is great.

There's an obvious difference when fighting is the sport as opposed to having nothing to do with the actual sport. If the outcome of a fight had any effect on the game other than to send a guy to the box, you might have a point.

My understanding is this is technically not true. For example, if a student was on academic scholarship for a year before joining the football team as a walk-on, then that scholarship would not count toward the limit.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Yea, that's my thought too.||
Yea, that's my thought too. It was mentioned somewhere that there were a couple of commits that agreed to greyshirt unless there was room. I'm guessing that when you take that into consideration, the cap is actually more like 25+3+number of greyshirts.

I thought that the B1G rule was that they would allow you to back-date 3 early enrollees, so the 25+3 gave us 28.

Goodnight, sweet half-blood prince.

The gist of it is that they switched from sourcing clean Detroit water to water from the Flint River. The water from the river was tested as not having lead and was going to get filtrated, but the corrosiveness of the water leached lead out of the pipes and the lead didn't get filtrated.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||What I didn't get about||
What I didn't get about Brandon is why they didn't use the closing arguments from the DA as proof that the state didn't think Brandon was involved. They say "one man and one man only" and the DA points out that the evidence doesn't suggest that anything happened inside the house, which directly contradicts his confession. The DA used two contradicting sets of evidence to convict two people of the same crime.

The media is almost always going to be pro-prosecution. This documentary came across as the media counterpart to that. The thing that probably sickened me the most was the DA effectively poisoning the jury by releasing information to the media that was later found to be inconsistent or plain untrue. At the end, when the DA is accused of something, he is on record saying something along the lines of "do you realize what even bringing this up in the media will do to my reputation?"

I see this said often, but no one suggests what they should have done instead. They were down 3 of their best linemen, which hurt their ability to keep those guys fresh even more than talent level. They came up with a game plan to try to keep those guys fresh and they had one shot at it. it was exactly what I figured they would do. It didn't work out and was compounded with our QB getting injured, but the way people talk about it, it's like they did a ritualistic sacrifice on the field. People need to calm down about it and, unless they have a proposed solution that they can show will worked for this team or against OSU, they need to stop being so hypercritical on this point.

I'll tag in. Steel starts losing strength at around 600 degrees and loses almost half by the time it reaches 1000 degrees. I literally learned this in my first semester in college. A friend's dad who is a structural engineer even predicted it would fall before it happened. While there are many buildings that have been set on fire, I'm guessing there have been very few that had physical structural damage at the same time while simultaneously supporting dozens of stories.
I mean, if you want to believe it's an inside job, whatever, just don't pass off a weak understanding of the physical nature of buildings as fact.

|8 weeks 3 days ago||The reason that I said they||
The reason that I said they can't is because the officials are contracted through the conferences. And, it's not just about hiring the officials, there's a lot of infrastructure that would need to be built including creating a new organziation to manage the officials on a national level.
Then what? The officials that they hire aren't going to move across country. Are you going to fly them in every weekend? Do you hire local guys, e.g. Big Ten or MAC officials? Maybe some guys from Kentucky or Missouri?
My point isn't so much that it's impossible as much as it's way too much work. What the NCAA could do is mandate that conferences set up centalized reviews.

The NCAA can't really move to a centralized replay, but the conferences can.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||The whole 3-4 thing has been||
The whole 3-4 thing has been discussed ad nauseum in the past when the comparison to the 4-3 under was being made. There were some pretty detailed comparisons of how a 4-3 under is almost equivalent to a 3-4. What you're arguing is the same thing that has been argued in the past and that's whether the 4th linemen has his hand in the dirt or not. That's basically the only difference in calling it a 4-3 or 3-4. Your defensive philosophy doesn't change much beyond that. You can have 1-gap, attacking 3-4 and you can have a 2-gap 4-3. You can bring all of your LBs down to the line in an okie look in either formation and have 7 guys ready to rush or drop into coverage.
One of the plays we used to run when Mike Martin was here was to drop him back into "coverage" and then bring him on a delayed blitz. That forced the DL to get assigned to the other 4 rushers and paired him with the RB. In that case, does it make a difference if his hand is in the dirt and it's a 4-3 or if he stands up before the snap and it's a 3-4? It's all semantics.
