Their defense was bad last year, and they lost all of their better players including DeForest Buckner. They don't have the talent and experience to be good this year in any case.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||rec'd for Austria-Hungary||
Switch the fear ratings of Maryland and Illinois, though. Maryland has played ok this year. Illinois has been terrible.
|4 weeks 9 hours ago||Hurst won't kill the center||
He'll just run right past him and kill the guy with the ball.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||pretty much||
Wisconsin's O is meh but their D is legit, and Sparty's O isn't nearly as good as ND's leaky D made it look.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I don't see anyone blowing LSU out||
Their defense is too good. They could slip past Bama with a few breaks.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||emergency||
They might have decided that they were only going to play him if someone got hurt and the game was still in doubt.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||even boring safeties||
struggle to single cover WRs deep. I don't know how much I blame Hill for what happened there.
Up to that point the defense seemed to have adjusted, as we had stuffed Colorado on 4 straight possessions.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||no||
The Fargodome is too small for an FBS team, and the fan/alumni base does not have the money to fund a big new stadium.

With the Hanson brothers rotating at tailback, there's no way we can lose.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||not only that||
They lost their one difference maker (DeForest Buckner) and had to replace all their starting LBs. Of course their 2015 LB starters weren't great, but they were ahead of the new starters on the 2015 depth chart.

Tying for second on Known Friends should be worth 1.5 points, not 1. Third place is worth 1, and tying for second should be better than finishing third. (I suppose if two guys tie for second no one should get third.)
|7 weeks 4 days ago||yep||
He looks smaller than his listed weight of 200, but he has game. He didn't look like a true freshman going up against college dudes for the first time.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||St. Vincent||
Their population is smaller than Ann Arbor's. Not the county, just Ann Arbor. They aren't rich like Iceland either.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||yeah||
When I read that I thought "I hope he's right about that one". Even if we're just talking about the season average as opposed to the end of the season, it's a bit optimistic to assume that an unproven player who's been riding the bench will be about as good as an above-average starter.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||heh||
More like "chuck it up in Braylon's general vicinity". That year, the definition of a well-thrown ball was one where you could say "Braylon can work with that".
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Sundhage was the US coach for||
Sundhage was the US coach for only one World Cup, in 2011. The US didn't win.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Sweden didn't outplay the US||
The US had more possession, more shots, and more shots on goal. A tie game was a fair result. A shootout is just a coin flip.
The US couldn't beat Sweden last year in the World Cup either. This team always wins either the World Cup or the Olympics, but not both.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||yeah||
We have a bunch of DL/LB types wearing inappropriate numbers like 1, 2, and 3 when no one is wearing 60, 61, 62, 64, 66, 69, 94, 95, or 97.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||everything is cool||
when you're part of THE TEAM, THE TEAM, THE TEAM, THE TEAM!
|13 weeks 5 days ago||He was a good one||
67 is too young to go.

So I guess Indiana is going to have the world devoured by starving dogs then.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Stars are a good indication||
Stars are a good indication of how good a prospect a player appears to be, and thus an appropriate way to compare classes of recruits who haven't been coached up yet.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||yeah, this looks like a bit of a mismatch||
I don't think the North and the Vale are going to get involved, because they're busy prepping for the zombie horde invasion. Otherwise, yeah. What's left of the regime is up against Dany's hordes and dragons, Dorne, the Reach, half of the Iron Islands, and most of the Riverlands. Who does Cersei have left to ally with? Euron?
|17 weeks 2 days ago||The Hound is also a younger||
The Hound is also a younger brother. But he's with the Brotherhood, who have no real reason to go to King's Landing.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Jon would have to be legitimized||
As far as anyone but Bran, Howland Reed, and the midwife (if she's still alive) know, he's Ned's son. But even if people recognize Rhaegar as the father, it was out of wedlock so Dany has the stronger claim as Aerys' legitimate child.
The head of a house can legitimize bastards, as Roose did for Ramsay. If Dany did that for Jon I think he would then have the stronger claim, so that's a no. It's possible that she could legitimize him in her will if she would rather be succeeded by him than by whoever else would be next in line.
|18 weeks 15 hours ago||heh||
One of my all time favorites and of course the inspiration for the Magnificent 7, but it's stretching the definition of a Western a bit.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Jon blew it, Ramsay blew it,||
Jon blew it, Ramsay blew it, but Sansa nailed it.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||it's not so much that Jon is stupid||
His original plan was decent, but seeing Rickon caused him to go full lizard brain and flip out. It seems plausible to me that he could lose a lot of self-control after being revived from the dead.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||she only sent a raven||
She had no way to know Littlefinger was coming at that point. Still, if she had mentioned it Jon might have been less likely to flip out after Ramsay killed Rickon.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||nah||
That issue is still easy enough to get around in any number of ways.
1. As far as everyone knows, Jon is Ned's son, not Rhaegar's. His ruler can easily legitimize him, as Stannis offers to do in the books. If it turns out to be more convenient for the people calling the shots to legitimize him as a Targaryen, that's what will happen instead.
2. Houses don't need male heirs to continue. Lyanna Mormont is Maege Mormont's daughter; her father is unknown. Sansa or Arya could just do the same thing Maege did.
3. Bran and Benjen are probably impotent, but no one can prove this. They could marry and have Jon impregnate their wives, and no one would be able to tell the difference.
