Well not all of them.

+1 to you. I did not think of that scenario. I retract my previous opinions about the rule.
|3 days 6 hours ago||"It's not really very||
"It's not really very complicated and is pretty hard to screw up."
Ever heard of Murphy's Law?
|3 days 6 hours ago||As Space Coyote said, +1 to||
As Space Coyote said, +1 to you for the history lesson. I still think it is a stupid to even have that option in place.
|3 days 6 hours ago||When do you think a team last||
When do you think a team last intentionally chose to kickoff twice to start both halves? From the history lesson above, I would say at least 4-5 decades ago. That does not fit my definition of a good rule. It does fit my definition of a waste of time.
"It's not just for an opportunity to berate a college kid for doing something stupid"
In most other cases, a college kid would be berated for doing something stupid that they knew was stupid. I bet this kid did not know this was even possible and was probably not even listening to the ref explain the ramifications of their decision.
|3 days 6 hours ago||"Hate crimes, suicide||
"Hate crimes, suicide bombers, the 3rd Reich were the result of "just words"."
Not to get too far off-topic, but I think you are greatly oversimplifying things here. Words did not create an environment for those things to happen, words just negatively brought people together that already had some sort of resentment. So yeah, they are "just words".
|3 days 11 hours ago||Which brings me back to my||
Which brings me back to my original point, why is this even an option? Seems like a waste of time and just an opportunity to berate (I'm not saying anyone here is doing that) a college player for making a mistake which could end up being the difference in the game... I believe Texas lost by 3.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Why is that even an option?||
Why is that even an option? If one team kicks off in the first half, the other team should kick off in the second half. I always assumed this was a rule since I see no advantage to kick twice, unless you have no one that can kick off...
|6 days 17 hours ago||Is there a particular age you||
Is there a particular age you are referring to? When I was spanked, it never made me think hitting someone else was acceptable. My kids did copy that behavior when they were very young (<3), but they quickly learned the difference between spanking and hitting.
|6 days 17 hours ago||To me, there is a difference||
To me, there is a difference between fearing your parents and fearing doing something wrong. My kids don't fear me, but they do fear being in trouble.
|1 week 2 hours ago||I agree, until I am able to||
I agree, until I am able to reason with my kids, I'll continue to spank them. So far I haven't had to go past six years old with the spanking (my youngest daughter is pretty stubborn).
|1 week 5 hours ago||I wonder ihow the offense||
I wonder ihow the offense would have been if both of them played at the same time? Tate at QB and Denard as everything else.
|1 week 5 hours ago||How about 10-3? Would you||
How about 10-3? Would you take that bet?
|1 week 1 day ago||Sure, but other than this||
Sure, but other than this (assuming he is guilty of incompetence), what else has he done to warrant his resignation? Or do you think this was bad enough (again, assuming guilt).
I for one like a lot of things that Goodell has done, such as suspending a lot of players for continually getting into trouble (and yes, he did miss the mark with Ray Rice). While some of the fines the NFL has been handing out to "headhunters" are ludicrous, I applaud him for at least trying.
|1 week 1 day ago||Is there video of the||
Is there video of the domestic violence? I ask because it makes a huge difference for public opinion.
|1 week 1 day ago||There is proof that Tressel||
There is proof that Tressel was lying. Where is the proof against Godell? Also, Tressel had a lot to gain from lying, what did Godell have to gain from it?
If Godell did see the video, I can't see why he suspended Ray Rice for only two games, but I don't think he should be fired for it.
|1 week 1 day ago||So before you saw the||
So before you saw the elevator video, you were 100% certain the whole thing went down like that?
|1 week 1 day ago||If everyone had to resign for||
If everyone had to resign for being incompetent or lying based on one instance, more than half the country would be out of a job.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'd wager that plenty of QBs||
I'd wager that plenty of QBs will look good against Rice.

Isn't Cal and Berkeley the same thing?
"The acceptance rates are artificially lowered due to the ease of applying."
I believe there is still a fee for every school you apply to, so I can't imagine too many people applying solely on the ease of applying.
|1 week 4 days ago||So to clarify, are you saying||
So to clarify, are you saying that Ray Rice was justified in "defending" himself?
|1 week 4 days ago||"I want to know what she||
"I want to know what she did."
I have no problem with what you are really asking, but the way you framed the question makes it sound like she definitely did something to provoke what happened. I know that is not what you meant, but that is how I read it and probably a lot of others as well.
|1 week 4 days ago||Perfect answer.||

Let the speculation begin...

Please be a little realistic, you mean forth Heisman award.

Maybe I need to get my eyes checked, but that avatar does not look anything like doogie howser.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I'll guess it was when||
I'll guess it was when Hershel Walker played for them, so a little over 30 years.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Not sure what USC had to do||
Not sure what USC had to do with anything. If you were bringing that up because of Mark May, well, he went to Pitt.

Don't worry, you already got that locked down...
