Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

I have not seen this posted yet, but upon scrolling down on the link
Tennessee: Former South Florida quarterbacks / passing game coordinator Nick Sheridan has joined the Tennessee staff. Sheridan takes the place of offensive grad assistant Cody Kempt, who recently accepted the wide receivers job at Montana State. Sheridan served as the quarterbacks / passing game coordinator at Western Kentucky in 2012.

In education we have shifted to intellectual disability and is used to reference an individual with an IQ that is 2 standard deviations below the mean... >70 and also scores low in adaptive behavior skills. With that being said, I have no problem with the use of the word when being used in its diagnostically appropriate manner. My daughter has mental retardation....I could accept saying she is retarded (the ARC, association of retarded citizens has not, as of yet that I know of changed its name), though I do not use those terms, when referring to cognitive function, however; as you said, when using the term to insult one who is acting foolish it really irritates me. Especially when its "retard".
|1 week 6 days ago||I think we can all agree that||
I think we can all agree that sexual assault sucks. My mother was a victim as a toddler, I know the long-term impacts of it. Having said that, this is a 14 year old and a 17 year old. The girl said he didn't force himself on her, that it just happened. This sounds somewhat consensual, the problem is she is not old enough to consent. I teach high school and hear of this type of thing all the time, and am told that parents of the girlfriend are in support of it. While the fact that these are cousins may disgust us, 14 year old girls having consensual (not that I am in agreement with this happening) sexual relations with 17 years old boys is not a rare thing in our society. In Florida, a child cannot consent under the age of 16 legally, however; if she were 16 she can c onsent to have sex with someone up to the age of 23 years, 364 days.
Just to clarify, I think having sex with relatives is disgusting, I think 14 years old is too young to have sex, I think that 17 years old is too young to have sex (I know...I am old school). I understand the need to protect younger naive children from older folks that may prey upon them, but I don't believe this is what happened.

I agree....I have a 9 year old with Down syndrome and I am often bothered by folks on this board who use the word and don't consider how offensive it is, rarely are they called on it, but if we used a slur about another group the poster would be raked over the coals.

my wife and I found out the gender around 12 weeks from a genetic work-up from my wife's blood. My jaw hit the floor when I heard that they could do that now. FYI, my wife is 38 and we have a daughter with Down syndrome, so with the already elevated risk they wanted to do the genetics.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Ryan is similar in size to||
Ryan is similar in size to Ray Lewis (JR 6'3 240, RL 6'1, 240), he is 20 pounds heavier than Ross or Morgan and has good instincts. Ross has shown good instincts, but I believe he struggles fighting through OL blocks in the second level. Ryan has more mass and while he is not a quick as Ross, will be able to fight through those blocks to get to the football. I like the move of putting our best defensive player in a position to make a play every down and I think he is talented enough and instinctive enough to get the job done.

This was exactly my point... I suppose I need to be more explicit in the way I choose to express myself.

|6 weeks 17 hours ago||Exactly, there is a huge||
Exactly, there is a huge difference between desire to know and right to know what happened. Hoke's answer draws much less notice than throwing out a no comment on the situation. He is much more likely to field many more questions with the no comment answer than a family matter. And like Magnus said, it is a family matter. If you were Gibbons parents and had to take some time off work to handle the situation, I am sure you wouldn't say my son got expelled for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at a frat party. I imagine you would be much more likely to say something along the lines of I need to take some time off to handle some family issues.

Granville Waiters like 50 when he left Ohio State?
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Just curious||
how many other top programs red shirt a ton of players, but not curious enough to go and research it for myself. It seems that we overstate the burning a red shirt idea here. If a player is successful on the field, chances are they are not sticking around for 5 years, especially at a position where your pro longevity is already limited due to the amount of punishment you are likely to take on like RB. It may be understandable for an OL to red shirt so that they can add the bulk needed, perhaps interior DL as well, but that is about it. In an ideal world, we have depth so that younger guys essentially can master technique, learn scheme, and contribute on special teams until they are juniors and then they get to start a year or two before moving on. Is the jump so great between year 4 and 5 to warrant massive red shirts vs. the idea of turning over your class and essentially taking 20ish addition players every 5 years and the probability of getting an very special generational type player to pan out with the higher volume of players taken.

If we give Denard the credit for the UTL1, we have to give him the credit for the loss the following year, don't we?

Twitter stalkers, he removed that a couple of weeks ago IIRC. Was mentioned around the same time he was said to have been cheering on tOSU in the Orange Bowl.

that Hoke will chew the players' ears off if they under perform?
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Actually, Florida has 8||
Actually, Florida has 8 classifications, 8A being the largest. There is talent that comes out of Booker HS though (Baraka Atkins and Sam Shields are both NFL players). Booker plays in a conference with smaller central Florida schools (DeSoto,Hardee along with Manatee county schools Southeast and Bayshore). The school I teach at is a 7A (down from 8A last year in a division with Sarasota Riverview, East Lake, and Palm Harbor University HS). We went 3-6 this year and beat Booker in a pre-season game 23-0.

double posts are a good way to get to 100 points quickly

says this about Nussmeier, " He is one of only three quarterbacks in NCAA history to throw for at least 10,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards (1,230), joining Alcorn State's Steve McNair (1991–94) and Central Florida's Daunte Culpepper (1996–98)."
I would venture to say that he appreciates a QB who can do something with the football when the play breaks down, and who has the athleticism to add an additional dimension to the game plan.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Absolutely...||
If you want a young and upcoming coach to be a coordinator, be prepared to replace them every couple years. This is not a bad thing, they get to work for a HC who is seems to be hands off, and they have access to top rated athletes, which, if they are successful, will be a stepping stone on their career path. This helps develop that coaching tree that might eventually bring back the next HC.

know that they practiced in Orlando, I don't really follow that closely, just know that I could have gotten tickets to go through my schools athletic department if I was interested, so I knew it was at Tropicana Field.
|9 weeks 22 hours ago||THe AAC, ACC, Big 12, B1G,||
THe AAC, ACC, Big 12, B1G, C-USA, MAC, MWC, PAC12, SEC, SBC plus Independents. Of these, the AAC, Big 12, and SBC do not have a conference championship game, so they can play each other plus the highest ranked independent or highest ranked remaining team. This would be a 16 team playoff system. This really only adds 1 additional week to the schedule compared to what is currently played. Obviously there are flaws, but it does give everyone a shot and takes it out of the hands of the voters, save for 1 spot. If independents don't want to get the shaft, join a conference.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah...||
I think a system where the conference championship games are the first round of the playoffs, then the conference champtions get seeded and continue the playoff from there is the best way to go.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Not quite sure you say....||
SEC is your answer.

for the update Brandon, one small thing you might want to correct, the UA all-star game is played in St. Petersburg, not Orlando.

that I thought that you were among those who my post ultimately addresses, however; I am not sure how many would come to the conclusion that you think its bull based upon what you wrote. You show his post and then emphasize the fact that he was cheering for Ohio State. You never gave a reproof of those who might be contacting Damien. If you take yourself out of the picture and not take what I said personally, as it was intended to be more of a generalization, I think you would have to agree that there are, in fact, an awful lot of grown men hanging on every word that these recruits publish. If you are going to his Twitter feed to verify what changes he made to his account, you might want to re-examine your priorities/ motives.
You are correct though, contacting these kids is not going to encourage recruits to come here. We are hurting our chances, and these kids are definitely networking with one another through social media, so bad experiences travel fast. Look at Bradley Roby's comments to the Ohio State fans about regretting having played for them for the past x years. If we think that kids don't pay attention, we are kidding ourselves. If kids are looking for recruiting information about Michigan that is abundant and free, or if they want to get a general idea about what the fans feel about the team/coaches/players, this is likely the place they will turn so we might want to tone down the negativity.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Look at the stats...||
There were 15 rushes: Morris 4-43, D. Smith 4-7, Funchess 2-14, Fitz 2-2, Green 1-5, Hayes 1- -1, Gallon 1- -5 (probably should have read the penetration and given back to Funchess on the reverse though I could not see what backside pursuit/contain was doing nor do I know if he was given the option to give. ) Yet, your initial thought was a negative about Green. Perhaps the coaching staff went with a different game plan focused on misdirection and not the power running game, and Green isn't the back to feature in that game plan.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Perhaps....||
he realizes the need for the B1G to be strong and he was rooting for a B1G victory. Perhaps he has a good relationship with Urban Meyer, perhaps we are too worried about all of this. In a perfect world, a mans word is his word and something to be honored and protected, but that is not the case in this world we live in. I hope Damien is a young man of his word, but if he chooses to go elsewhere, that is his decision. A bunch of grown men hanging on every word of a teenager posts looking for a reason to declare what his intentions are is absurd. We will find out in 13 months what his decision is.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||If the roles....||
were reversed, there wouldn't be many Ohio state fans. I know many Ohio state fans that followed other teams during the Cooper years. Stores sold Michigan apparel on high street across campus in Columbus. Here in FL I rarely saw people wearing Ohio state apparel. They had good teams and good records during those years, imagine if they had gone through records the UM fan base have experienced during the RR years and the past two.
