Not sure I get your point. By definition, all 5th years have redshirted. Why does it matter whether the redshirt was for injury or otherwise? Also, how do you differentiate between injury and not - physically unable to participate in 12 games, 8 games, 2 games, 4 practices...?

Turnovers can also be an effect of winning and losing, not just a cause. If you are losing and time is becoming a factor, you might start calling riskier plays and embrace a higher likelihood of turning the ball over. Conversly, if you're winning, you might call more conservative plays with a lower probability of turning the ball over.

This inflation thing must be really bad - price changed $5 between when you typed the subject vs the comment.

Maybe, but baseball's all-star game is still better than any of the other sports.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Bison is good and is||
Bison is good and is relatively lean. The downside of Bison (in my experience) is the burgers tend to crumble (perhaps this is because they are lean?)

This implies the person to which you were responded is much less intelligent than average as the betting lines are set by the average money being spent not some super insightful guru.

Not "head west to Nebraska" but rather "head to west Nebraska" (as in go to the westside of the state)

Heard that Stallman has great hops - like a kangaroo.

Trying to ascribe motivations to actions? You guys are making it way too hard. If you like the person/institution they did it for the right reasons, if you don't like them then it is clear evidence that they are, in fact, evil.

Now I feel really bad that I added that last line.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I well written reasoned||
I well written reasoned response, but hit much broader point than I made. My only point was cutting (getting rid of them because they are not good enough at football) someone the day before NSD is not really different than cutting someone after. I didn't say that someone was actually cut in OSUs case, nor did I comment on whether the circumstances in OSUs case were (or were not) appropriate.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||You're mixing the particulars||
You're mixing the particulars of the OSU case into what was supposed to be a general statement. If a kid is cut (that is let go simply because he wasn't good enough at football, regardless of the official reason) so to make room to add another kid, it shouldn't matter that timing of that occuring. I DID NOT SAY that OSU cut the kid, nor did I say that the medical was inappropriate. You seem to be defending against assertations that weren't made.
Oh yea, and get off Urban's dick.

Hard to say whether this was done to make room on the team or because of a medical issue. But, wouldn't it be nice to have better scholarship rules so that incentives aren't created for pushing guys off the team.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Your moral high ground||
Your moral high ground comment in combination with an avatar that appears to be a bottle of booze next to a college football helmet struck me as funny. Not really sure why.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||This was covered early, but I||
This was covered early, but I think back dating incoming players only helps in the 25/year restriction. My understanding is Pipkins leaving doesn't impact this.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I don't buy the timing||
I don't buy the timing implication that it would be okay to cut him before signing day, but not after. If you're cutting someone to make room for someone else, why should it matter whether the new person is officially in the fold or not.

We had a carom off one DE recruit yesterday but hit this one dead on.

2 out of 3 Ron Johnsons prefer Michigan.

Never heard that one, but I always liked the one about Sisyphus who flew too close to the top of the hill only to roll down.

5star by Kornblue relative to others kickers, not a 5 star on Rivals... For all football players.

Being that he is a big dude, my only concern is that on one of these trips, he might get the airplane seat next to me.

The urban myth is when Wilt Chamberlin was ased "How's the weather up there?" He would spit on the asker's head and say "It's raining".
