If they can only use graduated players, and can't use Peps, I vote Sione Houma.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Glad LSA and all who shared are still with us||
I'm equally glad that each of you overcame your brushes with disaster, and now have the opportunity to fully appreciate the life that we are so blessed to have. As I started reading LSA's story, it was a bit surreal at first because I too had a nasty sinus attack/runny nose/cough starting on October 17, the very day of Pitt @ GT and MSU @ M, among the worst sinus/runny nose/cough experiences I've had if not the worst. Seemed fitting given how those games that day turned out. I went to bed right after the bad thing happened in AA, and luckily my experience was "only" a severe cold that I got over within a week. It certainly seems like there was some sort of pathogen(s) making rapid rounds that time of year.
Luckily my fiancee is an EMT/dispatch for Grady Hospital, so over our years of courtship she has gradually opened me up concerning my willingness to share anything that might not feel right. I think that cannot be understated with these stories, as well.

Would be nice if EMB could shirt, this guy is an absolute beast at ILB but just needs to round off his game. Could see the field this season as a two down thumper, but would be terribly exposed against a good spread team or fast-paced offense, like Indiana or Ohio State.

He says this is an unrealistic fantasy, then proceeds to line up the conferences by "tv markets". Okay.

That's against Ball State. I could see that going away by then, too.

This will seem pitiful compared to the others I've seen in this thread, but I got a Bo bobblehead (BObblehead?) at the Detroit airport during one of my trips to AA, and it's still my favorite.

Likely will be another infamous day for the Factory of Sadness
|4 weeks 2 days ago||In this era of programs chasing their tails||
for about a 20% chance of ever making it big, it's refreshing to see a program like Idaho exercise common sense and do what's best for them. This will likely revive fan interest and renew old rivalries with Idaho State and Montana. Best deal for everyone.
Concerning New Mexico State, their solution isn't as cut and dry. It's highly unlikely either the MWC or C-USA will take them, so they may be better served going to FCS as well. The Southland could make some sense, since New Mexico directly borders Texas.

Also, sorry for double reply, but you can thank Arthur Blank for the early replacement. One of the most clueless owners in sports IMO. A new crib and a coach bro won't make fans come out to the stadium if the team is losing. I wish the guy would go away but I know we're stuck with him.

New place is right acros the street. Wanted to keep it on the MARTA line to keep the access for fans and stadium workers who otherwise may not be able to access the venue as easily.

I've watched and enjoyed the college hockey games I've been able to see the past few years. I by no means clear my schedule for it, but I make a point to best I can sit down and watch Michigan in the postseason. I grew up in the south where I did not even know hockey existed until I was about 10; college football and NASCAR were, are, and probably will be my #1 and #2. I guess you could say I climbed onto the fence of college hockey fandom. But when Michigan played Miami U a few years ago in the regional, and lost controversially in overtime, I had to ask my buddy who attended the game who the host team was. He replied "nobody, it's completely neutral". Which, really befuddled me. I had just assumed it was the same as the NCAA baseball regional/super regional setup. My dad came in when it was on and the first thing he said was "There's nobody there". He was right. I have to think NCAA hockey and NCAA baseball are relatively similar in popularity across the board, so I've always thought that the NCAA baseball regional/super regional system would work just fine for hockey, in that higher seeded teams earn the right to host. I think the Frozen Four is good as a neutral venue, but why they insist on having it in places like Tampa is beyond me. I could understand a larger metro area like Atlanta or Dallas every now and then, but otherwise it should be in the footprint of hockey bluebloods.

I'm pretty sure the release will be on the NFL Network.

For me personally, the NFL is just sort of "there", but I take a look when the schedule comes out to see the bigger games. My hometown team is the Falcons, so I've been kicking around going to the last game at the GA Dome.

You also said that the only way you'd leave Oxford, Mississippi would be in a pine box.

I think Brian thought he'd be the majority voice on this one and is really surprised he isn't.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||N Dakota just better||
Pretty much my thoughts during the game. No lack of effort or getting outskated, N Dakota is very talented and executed throughout. Michigan hung in there into the 3rd and the second goal got me out of my seat, but again N Dakota just too powerful.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||16-5||
is a rather healthy record, most of that on the road as well. It's exciting to see baseball playing at this level.

Eastern Michigan is having an open practice, too. But it's on Monday in the middle of the day, of course.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Pretty early to confirm an absolute like that||
Pretty early to have that already settled. No TV arrangements have been made at all yet, that is usually started in April and finalized by July for the first three weeks of the season. I could have seen a nighter against either Wiscy or Penn St.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||The guy has the size and||
The guy has the size and passes the eye test, but live and on film he doesn't really "pop". Hopfeully it's a matter of coaching and development rather than a lack of intangibles or drive.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||PS3||
My buddy recently got a PS4 and had no use for his PS3, so he let me take the system and his NCAA 14 Football game off his hands for the price he paid for the NCAA 14 game (around $60). I recently discovered Vue and how Netflix and Amazon are built into the console. Well worth the $60 I paid my buddy to get my hands on this. I cut my cord yesterday because I don't really need a bunch of channels from February - August, but when September comes I need to figure out a more elaborate plan to make sure I get all the channels that broadcast college football.

I feel this is a good compliment to the GbG analysis. With both together, you get a pretty complete recap.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Football isn't his life||
He has a broader life perspective than most athletes and people in general do. I think he got to do what he wanted for several years, but he's ready to move on. I just hate that he never got a chance to compete for a contender in nearly the decade he was in the league.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||I was thinking the same||
I was thinking the same thing. It's not as easy to redshirt at some positions as others because special teams need to be filled, which won't contain your most talented guys. Michigan under Hoke played a lot of young players because they fit best what Hoke wanted to do, and in a lot of cases were upgrades over the players RR brought in.

Keith Washington. You need at least four good healthy corners at all times these days. Most teams throw out 4 WR at least a few times during a game now, so you need 4 CB to counter. Keith Washington will play this season. Excited to see how he does.

Coaching, Briles is a genius. Morally, Briles is a dunce.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Michigan being better this||
Michigan being better this year obviously helped the Big Ten's cause. Also adding Maryland and Rutgers is the reason for this, so you can't say this is awesome and the SEC sucks blah blah and then turn around and say you want Maryland and Rutgers gone.

College football stadiums I've done:
LSU at night
Tulane (new Yulman Stadium)
Shreveport bowl game
Doing in the future:
Michigan (2016, Penn State or Illinois)
Would like to do in the future:
Wake Forest (mostly for Winston-Salem)
|14 weeks 3 days ago||LSU v Ole Miss 2002||
I was lucky enough to attend this game. Saturday night, 8:15 local time kick. Game wasn't particularly well-played, but it was tight, and LSU pulled out a squeaker 14-13. Was a great experience.
