|2 days 20 hours ago||I'd like that reporter||
to ask what coach Harbaugh thinks about the struggling Cleveland Browns. As if he'd answer even if he paid any attention to it. I believe it's obvious that the entire staff is giving all their attention to winning the next game, not trying for headline fodder.

Doesn't make it valid.
Edit: this was not a reply to #160.

Could someone put on this thread what actually happened? It may answer a lot of these scenarios.

height absolutely matters. maybe not from an engineers standpoint but I've been actually doing this shit for over 30 years and someone is going to emergency and someone is going to jail if the strength of the vertical shaft isn't considered.
The higher the vertical shaft, the more outward stress is placed upon on it. Therefore, the higher, the stronger the vertical must be.
Seen them snap many times due to lack of strength and not being braced properly.

I believe it was from Sycamore Ohio. A town not far from us Bluebloods here in Bucknut country. If so, that burned for 9 days!

Never argue with drunks or people who are dumber than you. Choose your battles wisely. Some are worth fighting, most aren't.

I was sure I saw some replays shot from the standard camera angle. Which would mean that they had functioning equipment, placed at proper angels.

|2 years 48 weeks ago||I agree with most of what||
(replying to #27 - not #16)
I agree with most of what u've said however a difference in years does exist. We held 4 season tix for 26 years and also enjoyed the added entertainment that came along with the changing world. Sure, prices increase, however, the cost of literally everything involved with a game day experience rose much higher than anyone's wages did over the same period of time. The flyovers, the parachuters, rocketman,...all very cool. Even the piped in music was alright at the onset, but, a song here and there is one thing......not being able to speak to those around us who had also been coming for a very long time, was ridiculous.
For years, we tolerated a horrible speaker system but could still hear the radio coverage through our headsets (impossible now). In recent years, we could no longer carry on a conversation with those around us without screaming into each other's ears....never get a break from the constant barrage of external noise and finally, after years of requests, could hear the band in the South end. Unfortunately, all we heard was the same piped music, multiple times, droning on and on throughout the entire season while only hearing the band a time or two each game.
We understood the changing times. We understood the added security after 9/11. We realized we were getting older and they were attempting to keep things "young" but they lost us from overdoing it. Part of a gameday experience is some of the people whom u've met over the years and are always there. 26 years....we had a good 20 year run but all things considered, they've made just about every possible mistake they could have made to keep truly, loyal fans content and willing to spend money. Honestly, we never discussed paying for an inferior product. We loved coming to A2 on gameday but enough was enough.
Football should be about the experience....the football experience. The cheerleaders, the band, the team, the crowd, the radio announcer as well as the stadium announcer. A small amount of outside force is acceptable. It has become a "show" more than a sporting event. Fine for those who enjoy it. Not us. Not anymore.

get rid of the helmets and get rid of the concussions. some pretty major ones at first, but in a very short time.....everyone would begin protecting their own head for fear of hurting the other guy's head.
wanna get rid of the face mask calls (or lack, thereof?)....get rid of the face masks!
Wanna get rid of pulled groins?.....quit running!
Wanna get rid of broken fingers, arms, legs and ankles?.....quit moving!
You people really need to get lives.

......anyone ever heard of the "I Ching"?
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Thank you for replying....||
...its more than most do.
I appreciate your answers, especially the fact that you gave intelligent answers and let the name calling and derogatory comments lie. ( I especially like the last one).
I never claimed to be as smart as Hoke.
I said that there would be "hitches". Didn't use that word, however.
I merely was pointing out that DG, even while playing receiver, has shown us that he is more suited to the QB spot right now than is Bellomy....and.....with such an important postiion, the coaches should be aware of the kids skillset, abilities and obvious ability to adjust quickly, ie: one week of practice and proves it.
It didn't take this board or its posters, after the fact, to realize that the Bellomy insertion was a mistake. During the two-plus qtrs that Bellomy was in the game, countless, lifelong fans saw that it was a mistake and were begging for Hoke to give DG a shot.
It isn't about who IS better on any given day....it;s about recognition of the game. You teach kids....you COACH a game, and, this season has proven not once, not twice, but many, many times that the games are not being coached as well as they could have been. Everyone.....EVERYONE, including Ohio fans know that we were outcoached.
We were outcoached at Bama, ND, almost State and Ohio.
This wasn't a final drive situation. If DG goes in before halftime, he has time to acclimate himself. Then the "Coaches" use halftime to adjust him. Then he has 2 full qtrs to get into a rythm.
I appreciate that you were good at tennis, but it's a one man sport (with the obvious exception of dbls) and a team needs a leader. Does anyone honestly believe that the team had as much confidence in Bellomy as they would have had in Gardner?
I know that hindsight is 20/20 but I fear that we are seeing a pattern of questionable decision making going on here, during the games.....COME ON!?....do you honestly think that the decision to continue to try and run between the tackles against Ohio was a good coaching decision? Do you honestly believe that Roundtree running routs down the sideline was a good decision? Funchess is a pleasant surprise and the quick throws to him (or anyother TE) are almost nonexistent....even after proving that it works with great success. Do you think that taking that out of the game plan was a good coaching decision?
COME ON! Those of us with a few years under our belt our getting more than a little sick and tired of these decisions. Take a shot....sure....but recognize that it isn't working and try something else. And if you don't have something else ready, then theres your next problem. And while your at it, don't use the things that have proven to work.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||stick it up your ass.....||
......ever since the Bama game, this site has turned into a "click" of you people who worry more about: font, spelling, drinking, loyalty (even though I saw none during the last two years of RR's tenure), name calling, and.......unless you have been making stupid comments over the last few years to get your points up, an opinion means nothing.
I don't name call. I don't tell people that they are wrong. I don't threaten. I don't suggest that someone should venture elsewhere. I have just as much right to comment here as you or anyone else does.....so....
STICK IT UP YOUR ASS!!!

Just curious if you've ever actually played any sports and if so, were you any good?....you know....a normal human being....which is to say that I don't believe Gardner is!
I was an above avg athlete but not great. The one thing I excelled at was drums. Played them since I could swing a stick. Haven't played them for years, but, can sit down and everything automatically goes where it's supposed to. Would I be perfect?...no...but I quarantee you, anyone who has been doing something (like throwing a football, reading defenses, running, using hand-eye coordination, etc.) for most of their life isn't going to just forget how to do it!
The man was on the field most every play. Does anyone really thing he didn't know the plays?
Sure, there may have been a little confusion on handoff direction or exact lineups for any given play, but, if I'm picking kids for my team on the playground, I'll take the 6'5" guy who can run and has a gun for an arm AND has had reps in a college game!
These coaches!.......supposed to be great football minds. I have news for you......just because their in the position doesn't necessarily mean that they are great football minds.
I would take the 6'5" kid by the shoulders and tell him to focus, give him some direction with easier plays to get him acquainted, tell everyone else on the field to help him get going, you know, make sure we're lined up properly, double check handoffs,........wouldn't have to remind him of the pass patterns.....because HE WAS A RECEIVER!!!!!
You've got a lot of nerve telling someone that they are wrong when all I know is, I would rather have a kid who's made a career out of playing QB and has some gametime experience, and wouldn't worry about lining up or handing off but knowing where the receivers are and the timing of the routes.......oh yeah.....HE WAS PLAYING RECEIVER.
You honestly want me to buy into the belief that he wouldn't have become comfortable under center?.......in over 2 qtrs?!
If you like data analysis so much, then stick to that and stop telling people they're wrong.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Finally, Finally, Finally........||
someone out there (with a lot less than a gazillion points) agrees!
The players stand up.....protect each other....bust their asses......I know the coaches can't tell us everything but......
......how much different is Ohio than Bama?...and....
we played Ohio AFTER 12 weeks of a season. Bama was first out of the gate and most expected us to get drilled.
12 weeks of practices and games and this is what THIS coaching staff comes up with?
Where's the improvement in coaching?....in clock management?....in time out usage?....I'm sick and tired of HokeSpeak! I'm sick and tired of hearing how the line just didn't blolck the way we expected them to.
You know what Hoke, I'm sick and tired of watching you coach! I'm sick and tired of seeing timeouts go to the locker room. I'm sick and tired of your Godawful clock management. (And BTW, if anyone believes that the Coaches were actually TRYING to score just before halftime....your an idiot!!!)
If Hoke doesn't want to tell us anything, fine, then just shut your mouth and stop trying to cover up the obvious, blatent, piss-poor job of coaching that I have seen week after week.
