I'd say its because the injuries are very visible. Busted open lips, nose bleeds, black eyes, cauliflour ear, and some twisted fingers. But in the grand scheme of things those are minor. There is also this misnomer that pads protect you and make you safer in football and I think there is a real argument to be had to the contrary.

I was a forward and the only time I felt truly vulnerable to head injuries was flying head first into rucks. In fact, the more I think about it, every notable hit to the head I had was in rucks.
|4 days 2 min ago||Food for thought on Tackle Sports||
I played both Rugby and Football. Whenever I tell people I played Rugby I get the usual, "Woo, that's a brutal sport." When I say played football, I am usually met with indifference. I've always found this odd because football hurts way fucking more to play than rugby. I would leave football practices glad they are over and kind of dreading the next one. I would leave rugby practice and be kind of sad it was over. We tackled a lot, but is was fun and felt safer. I could not name everytime I had bad headaches after football practices because there were too many to name. The locker room was filled with bottle of ibuprofen. But with rugby, I can tell you each individual one because they were so few in number.
A lot of that has to do with the rule you mentioned, wrapping up on tackles forces you to come in under control.
All tackles at the head or neck area are strictly penalized.
Most importantly, I think, is the lack of helments. You can't use your head as a weapon if you know its vulnerable. You can't use your body as weapon in the same way, because it is vulnerable too.

I love of the comments about the stuff being too thin. It's drifit, it is supposed to be that way. It is meant to keep you cool and wick sweat. I personally loved the gear and bought quite a bit of it.
PS. If it fits a size small, just buy a size up.

Im gonna echo a lot of the sentiments I have seen posted here. Their outward hatred of Michigan permeates through just about everything they "write." Hardly anything of substance there.

No official word, but I would like to see Michigan pursue a DT for depth purposes. The DL feels really thin there past the starters.

Very likely he is referring to this weekend since it is Friday. But I would guess Minnesota did contact him or his agent last weekend to gauge interest.

It's a combination of two things:
1. Georgia is a destination school. From everything I've heard about Athens and the University of Georgia, it's awesome. That's a big draw.
2. Questionable coach+desperate/hungry (not to mention large and wealthy) fanbase that is consistently failing to live up to expectations=$$$$$ to recruits. It is the Hugh Freeze formula.

Dude, come on. It's two threads away.

I agree but probably for different reasons. This season he had a stacked veteran roster that had prototypical players for the position. He could base stuff and they could execute multiple assignments. Next we will be talented and young. I think Brown is looking forward to doing more of what he did at BC with sub-packages and odd looks upfront. Mixing and matching personal like the mad scientist he is.

WD period. Take a day off man.

Ehhh...Allen basically single-handedly brought them back in the championship game against Wisconsin by himself. So Coach K has already got his money's worth with Allen. Kid is still a punk though.

It seems that there is an issue at many Title IX offices regarding compliance. I feel this is something that the NCAA or even state governments should look into. Audit these offices around the country and look for failings and ways to improve. Athletes and students need to feel safe at universities.

Apparently aliens can't play football for shit though.

By the time you got this comment in 5 posters had already mentioned the poor title. You gotta type faster than you are.

Word is we passed on Banks because we felt good about our other tackle prospects in this class.

You know they make creams for that? Had you done some preparation before commenting you would have known that.

You know it's Christmas (or Hannakuh) season when we start getting regular threads updating crystal ball movement.

Darnay Holmes, Alex Leatherwood, and Aubrey Solomon would be pretty cool.

Don't you have to be offered a job (let alone be a candidate) in order to pass it up?

You wouldn't have a problem with him. Jay-Z explicitly said a bitch ain't one.

We are. First timers as well. Any tips or suggestions from veterans would be appreciated.

It's because their secondary is a tire fire. Cox didn't dress Saturday. And they did mention Corley played

I'm sure Bama is in it. But Georgia was THE favorite from the moment he decommitted through the present.

Sam Webb has been posting some stuff lately that suggests that Michigan might have a real shot again with Solomon. I wonder why?
*checks Michigan and Georgia*
Michigan is 7-0 and #2 in the country, while Georgia is 4-3 with a loss to Vanderbilt and behind Kentucky in the East standings*. I see why now.
*It's true, you can check.

There is also no way in fucking hell they were trying to run a fake punt by the way.

New England Patriots. 2 years ago the Pats copied Kiffins play that sprung open a tackle eligible receiver. I could see them copying it to create match up problems for there tight ends and interchangable slot WRs.
