Peppers at 10, which seems low.

My enjoyment doesn't get in the way of their health. Their desire for money and fame and accomplishment does. This isn't the Roman Colosseum where slaves are being forced to fight to survive. If all the 300-pounders want to quit and sell insurance or try to play a different position that befits someone who's 260 lbs., then they are free to do so. That's how a free enterprise system works.

I always wondered why they didn't schedule the bowl games for the same night as the Super Bowl or the NCAA basketball championship game or election night. Or to compete with "The Bachelor."

Hmph. I applied it the same way, but not for the same reason.

Does he get 42 complimentary condoms, too?

F*** that. I'm not watching "Sesame Street" anymore.

Yep. I don't want to go down the road of banning everything that's potentially bad for you, because there goes MMA, NASCAR, skydiving, mountain climbing, bacon, BMX racing, skiing, video games, etc. People need education and support, but at some point, you just let them go.

It's a good rule that is poorly enforced.
Personally, I think targeting should be reviewed by an impartial party in the booth (or remotely). If there is a targeting foul, that party should notify the referee to eject the player, even if it's one or two plays later. It doesn't interrupt the flow of the game, but it still enforces the rule without counting on referees to see it in real time.
|1 day 4 hours ago||I appreciate the sentiment||
I appreciate the sentiment behind your idea, but there are numerous and equally ridiculous things you can also do to limit contact to the head. One of the beautiful things about football is seeing 300 or 325 lb. guys doing things you didn't think a 300 or 325 lb. guy could do.
Along with the F = ma thing someone else mentioned, football isn't for people who are terrified of getting hurt. At this point every football player in high school, college, and the NFL knows what he's risking, and he knows he's going up against guys who are 300+ pounds, as well as guys who are 220 lbs. and run 4.5 forties. Saying "That fat guy can't have a job in this league because he might hurt me" means, well, maybe that job isn't for you.
I think Darwinism rules in the sport of football, to a certain extent. If people want to risk their health, let them. If people want a chance to be famous and make a lot of money, let them. As long as every person knows what he's risking, I don't see the issue.
|3 days 4 hours ago||Agreed. And I think this fact||
Agreed. And I think this fact underscores the idea that virtually any defense can beat virtually any offense, and vice versa. In this case, J.T. Barrett (and OSU) beat James Ross (and Michigan) because a) Barrett is a better athlete than Ross and b) Ross didn't do his job correctly. It's Jimmys and Joes, not X's and O's. But it also comes down to teaching and execution. Scheme matters to an extent, but if your OLB isn't good enough at his position and doesn't do his job, it doesn't really matter whether you're running a 4-3, a 3-4, a 3-3-5, a 4-2-5, etc.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, everybody!

Interesting. Thanks for the information. I appreciate your nerdiness. The technical side is the biggest struggle for me, because I just don't have a lot of time to delve into that end of things when I'm trying to gather information, write, etc. So any tips I get about the technology end of it are helpful.

This appears to be an unintentionally funny comment, because it's Dontavious Jackson.

And by hilarious, I mean not even a teeny bit funny.

Wow. I guess you haven't been around football coaches much, because a joke about Jared Fogle is pretty tame.
|4 days 8 hours ago||Leonard Fournette, please.||
Leonard Fournette, please. Not only would he help out our run game, but he would open things up in the passing game, too.
|4 days 8 hours ago||It might be our biggest weak||
It might be our biggest weak spot, but it's also covered up by a very good defensive line and secondary. I would go with an offensive player, because that's where we have less talent overall.

It's a local company. They told me that if I wanted any better service, I would have to move to a dedicated server, which would be rather expensive. I signed a one-year contract with them, so I will be looking at different options soon. Thanks for the info about AWS. I don't think I came across them when I did some brief research over the winter.

$20 says it was sent to California to hunt down Trent Baalke.
|4 days 8 hours ago||I think he'll fit at the WILL||
I think he'll fit at the WILL position. He's stout enough to take on blockers on inside runs, but he's lacking some of the open-field quickness that you might want for that SAM linebacker who can blitz/cover. He's listed on Hudl at 6'1", 235 lbs., and Brown likes those thick inside linebackers.

There's a chance, but I've heard that it's not likely. We'll see.

Your comment makes zero sense.
|4 days 9 hours ago||I don't think my responses||
I don't think my responses have been any more prickish than your comment. But oh well.

First of all, it used to annoy me, too.
Secondly, it doesn't anymore.
We trim things down all the time. I would only date Person X, Person Y, or Person Z at my place of work. I only applied to School X, School Y, and School Z for college. When I graduated, I sent out my resume to Business X, Business Y, and Business Z. (In a lot of cases, there are going to be more than three, but for the sake of time and space, that's all I'll use.)
This kid is going through his process. Right now, 7 months before he decides, that's where he's at. He's at 16 schools. Next month he might be at 10. By September he might be down to 5. It's the same way we trim down anything, except people are surely hounding him for a top list, and he has the platform of Twitter to share his process. If you do not want to participate in his process of narrowing it down from however many offers he has to 16 to 10 to 5 to 1, then you have the option of ignoring his announcements.

I'm not belittling you. I'm pointing out that jokes involving inhumane things are rampant, especially if you watch any comics who are even slightly off-color, such as Louis CK, Daniel Tosh, Dave Attell, Bill Burr, or even late-night talk-show hosts. I wonder why you hold me to a higher standard than is generally expected of just about any non-kids show host.

It's actually a joke aimed at Jared Fogle. OJ Simpson allegedly killed two people, but OJ jokes are told endlessly. I wonder if you get offended every time you hear one of those, too.

No worries. I appreciate the link. TBH, I've had some disagreements with my service provider because they have told me it's not their fault when my site crashes, that I must be doing something wrong. So when it crashes due to something like this, that's evidence that something on their end needs to be fixed.
