I remember seeing him beat Billy Sims in the 100 on The Superstars (God I'm old). Gastineau was a freaky athlete.

20+ years of rugby, and zero concussions for me. I do admit, however, that my shoulders did not work 100% for a while in the latter years. Impingement, slipping, soreness. Even now, when pitching to my son my 3/4 delivery is more like 5/8. People always think rugby is such a rough game, but IMO it is not nearly as violent as football. No armored 200 pound projectiles flying at your head in rugby. The method of tackling in modern football probably needs serious reevaluation. I would think we still would love football without the "blow him up" hits.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yeah there is an obvious||
Yeah there is an obvious element of bad luck involved, but I think it's the team's lack of athleticism that is a big culprit. Many of the players just don't seem to be explosive enough to close out on a shooter or get up and challenge the shot.

Obligatory SEC bag man comment. Wild swings of recruitments in Georgia's favor would certainly give one pause to think.

If the Harbaugh coaching tree is leading to this type of gig, we should have highly competent guys lining up to join the staff. Fisch will be tough to replace, however, given how well thought of he is. Congrats to him anyway.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I think you are 100% correct||
I think you are 100% correct here. Michigan can field a stud per postition. OSU can field 2. Alabama 3. Not only is Saban bringing in top 3 recruiting classes annually, but the continuity of his system being in place for a decade is huge. It will probably take 2 or 3 more recruiting classes (so that all players, Fr. thru 5th yr., are Harbaugh guys) to close the talent gap. Harbaugh guys that have been playing the the same system (O or D) their entire M career.

It's not just the talent and the development, both which are the best in the game right now. When was the last time you saw Alabama lose a game due to their own mistakes? Blown coverages, blocking assignments, etc? They simply don't it. Their execution is what IMO sets them, and Saban, apart from everyone.

Don Brown will know this game film better than the back of his hand by next season.

I don't like it, but I think you're spot on. I think a lot of Nebraska's success was built on a soft schedule and some really friendly breaks.

Stanford vs. North Carolina: (arguably) the best academic school in the Power 5 vs. (unquestionably) the biggest academic fraud in the Power 5.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Credit to Georgia's running||
Credit to Georgia's running game in the 2nd half, but IMO TCU really blew that game. Missed XP, missed FGs, and weak fumbles when they're moving the ball on Georgia's side of the field killed them.

Missed opportunities. Lions could easily have a good lead right now. Playoff teams need to make those plays.

Disappointing, but whatever. Good luck to the kid.

Guilty until proven innocent. In today's political climate, an accusation is an assumption of guilt.

I am very unimpressed with Clemson. Penn St. arguably has a better resume (OSU and Wiscy). Michigan is significantly better than both of them. Sleepwalking through the Iowa game was very costly.

That shooting performance has to be one of the worst of Bielein's tenure?

I was at the 5-0 Purdue game. Walked into a howling wind armed with ice needles all the way to the stadium. It was worse than the NW game.

I think there is a big difference between doing so during regulation time in college against a bad opponent vs. OT in the NFL. Iowa won by 28. Marty Morningwood is still a punchline.

Narduzzi is still an unhinged lunatic, but thanks to him nonetheless.

So who plays CF? On the surface this doens't look like a move that indicates the Tigers plan to compete next season. I hope that's not the case.
