He certainly didn't break the law but this is just another addition to a list of questionable behavior by Winston. I think a suspension is appropriate if nothing else to let him know that he is not above consequences. And I imagine NFL GMs are taking note. Nobody likes headcases but everybody knows that kids eventually grow up.
|1 week 2 days ago||To me what hammered it home||
To me what hammered it home wasn't that Rice hit his fiance. We already knew that part of the story. It's how hard he hit her and how little remorse he had afterward that got to me.
When I first heard about it, I figured it was possible that she was really drunk and her lack of consciousness had less to do with physical force than it did a whole lot of alcohol. Or maybe I was hoping that would be the case because I hated to think one of the best and hardest playing backs in the leauge could be a scumbag near the level of Jerry Sandusky.
Upon seeing the video, I was chilled to the bone. He hit her with an incredible force, and he's one of the strongest men out there. I'm not sure from the video if she was knocked unconscious from his fist or her head hitting the rail but I am confident that hit was strong enough to do serious brain damage if she was hit in the wrong place.
Even more chilling was how he just picked her up and dragged her out. He didn't have a look of remorse. He didn't fall to the ground in tears. When the elevator stopped he didn't go panicking for help. He dragged her off to his room as if she were a sack of potatoes.
Cut and indefinite suspension are appropriate. Regardless of what criminal charges have been / will be filed, Ray Rice and his now wife will need some serious counseling work. If Rice ever resumes an athletic career or revisits Rutgers or his high school again, he will need to have very seriously changed his attitude and temper. For the time being, I hope he stays quiet and he and his wife take their counseling as seriously as possible. I know nothing about her or their relationship (beyond the aforementioned video) so I will not pass any judgement on her character or decision to marry him / stick by his side.

The way I see it is for Tebow to be a top tier quarterback he would need the entire offense revamped to something similar to his Florida days. Easy reads in the passing game, read-option runs, and lots of QB run plays. This offense would require new players and coaches across the board. No way that kind of risk is worth it to maximize one guy's talents, especially considering there's no telling if such an offense would even work against elite NFL defenses. If Tebow wanted to succeed, he would have needed to embrace a non quarterback role, but he was so stubbornly set on being a franchise quarterback.

The thought of a Bud Foster defense going up against a spread offense with new offensive linemen across the board, a new set of backs, and now a redshirt freshman quarterback makes part of me cackle with joy.

I still stand by my prediction that Devin leaves M a champion, including winning in Columbus.

1. Offensive line figures it out this year. This is both an expectation and a key to the season. (Obvious)

Wow. Just wow. I believe Rutgers fans are in for a wakeup call.

Watch what Pittsburgh does with Dri Archer out of Kent State. Similar size, ran a 4.26 in the combine (!!), actually beat Denard in the 100m dash in FL high school track championship. Too small of a frame to carry the ball often and also fought injuries in college. At KSU, Archer was a speed back, slot receiver, punt and kick returner. Had an absolutely sick 2012 season. If Pittsburgh uses him effectively, Jags should be able to do the same with Denard.

My BS is in computer science from Bowling Green. Upon graduation, 100% of my class either had a job offer or acceptance to a grad school program, and I know OSU is ranked above BGSU in computer science.

Rutgers is a wonderful addition to the conference. The university serves as a daily reminder of the value of a good PR department.

To really make some heads spin, Rich Rodriguez had more top ten wins in his Michigan tenure than Meyer has so far at Ohio.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||I honestly thought after that||
I honestly thought after that game that the team had turned a corner and the D would lead them to 8+ wins while the offense would continually improve. Too bad I was clearly wrong. I do still think the 2008 D was pretty good in terms of talent, but the offense forced them into so many bad situations with too little rest that they wore with the grind of the season. Too bad Gerg had to come along the next year.

The second Petrino era at Louisville has started quite well I see.

If the UF job is open in December I could see Harbaugh interested. Great job, easy recruiting, great pay, and the media bias toward the SEC makes competing for national titles a bit easier. Seems like a slam dunk for Harbaugh.

I have always thought there should be a limit to review time like in the NFL. I genuinely do not believe review time has any bearing on attendance as I don't see it being a deciding reason to attend a game or not, but the game experience would greatly improve if review time was no longer than a single stadium announcement.

How about Northwestern in 2008? Lots of factors led to poor attendance - cold, rainy, 2008 offense. The stadium looked largely empty.

|31 weeks 6 days ago||MAC||
The MAC has unbalanced divisions. From 2007 to 2011 they had Temple as a seventh member in the MAC East, then Temple left and UMass took their place. So since 2007, they have had six west teams and seven east.
The first year of unbalanced divisions all members played all divisional opponents, but some teams played only 7 total conference games while the rest had 8. The title game happened to be between two teams which only played 7 conference games.
From then until now all teams play 8 conference games, but there are always two sets of two east teams who don't play each other. It is annoying and sometimes confusing.
I don't know how the MAC does this under current NCAA guidelines. They might have an exception. I figured the ACC should be able to get a similar exception.

Yeah that's about what I figured. Russell has pretty much died compared to the old days. Though blue light up shoes would be amusing for one time only ...

Any chance Russell Athletic could match a deal like the Adidas deal? Their only BCS school is Georgia Tech and I've heard those are high quality uniforms. They have in the past done deals with MLB and NFL so you can bet they are itching for another big name.

Kate Upton needs to show up to more games so Spike Albrecht can go nuclear again. I would love to see two consecutive M players get POTW.

I just got a message saying there is no ongoing threat to campus. I sure hope campus police quickly learn the motive to this shooting.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||MS, Purdue||
I've heard a lot so far so I'll try to make sense if it. I cannot verify the veracity of any of this as it all is from social media. At least one person has been shot. There were two shooters, one of which is in custody and I've not heard a confirmation on the other. I have a tendency to believe all is clear because I just saw a text saying campus minus the building with the shooting can resume normal operations.

Denver is a great team but Manning is historically bad in the cold. He's an old man and has taken a beating for years. His body has had enough. I think he plays an OK game and Seattle pretty well wins.
|34 weeks 6 days ago||He got Vandy to play harder||
He got Vandy to play harder than I've ever seen and have the confidence, even arrogance, of a winner. This is Vanderbilt we are talking about. I call the turnaround a real feat. Franklin is a great coach and will make trips to the Happy Valley that much harder.
