|4 days 7 hours ago||There is nothing compassionate in watching football...American||
society does, as a matter of course, cast out folks who are challenged because they are outside the norm. No one earns the right to do their job poorly (God Bless Merica).
Lee Corso is lucky to have a job in an industry where, as a matter of course, the standards are so low. The people who care the most about football (active players and coaches) - don't even watch Gameday. The fans who care have been pushed to blogs and other internet sites to get their fix for years.
Where is Chunks when you need him...
|4 weeks 3 days ago||The truth is in the data...but how does this help?||
This sounds like sci-fi at this point.
How does this help kids roughhouse which is where football starts.
If it comes to this - aren't there better alternative sports we should be watching/playing? I see the seat belt analogy, but that doesn't apply to a kids game.
We'll have to wait and see. The sociology and future speak wrt concussions are too dense to have one solution.

I need more stats.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||88... 86...either will do... just make it over 20 yards...||
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Because... Harbaugh||
Let's move on from there. Don't spit into the wind. Don't pull the mask...
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Mario out... RJS in... keep on rolling||
Ross will play vengeful in the 2nd next week. I love the depth.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Who the F&*K cares...||
wait ... I guess that would be another flavor.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Remember the near riots in South Bend when Willimgham was let go||
... uh wait... he was fired after 3 years. Guess that makes it racially OK. (/s). Seriously though... this is about football - not race. Texas is more concerned with the former than the latter (wrt cc at least) and both white and black Texans are sophisticated enough to differentiate.
That said - there is little in this thread or in the media about football...just win/loss. That doesn't tell the story. We are sensitive because of RR historicism.
I too think it would be a mistake to let him go... but for football reasons nothing else.

come on... round down NCAA, cut a guy some slack.

What a stud!
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Peppers is not showing Woodson or Eric Berry Freshman progress..||
but the season is only just begun. He is a year ahead of both due to injury. Hmmm...I don't see anything driving this early entry expectation other than expectations at this point. The Woodson/Berry comparison is a reflection of his upside not his accomplishment.
Peppers is free to make this look silly starting tomorrow. Right now...not so much. Both Woodson and Berry were all conference freshmen and played 3 years
There is no shame or harm in playing 3 years before declaring or finishing out under the current quality coaching and facilities. I don't see what is driving him to declare as a red shirt sophomore.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Neither did Stanford before Harbaugh...||
just saying. NU has been on the short end of the stick for years with pretty decent teams and coach.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Greater good?...||
You rooted on OSU vs Mich??? I'm sorry but Hoke was gone regardless and no CC justifies a loss to Ohio State ever.
Neg for this. If I were a mod banhammer would be swift... 56K points and all. This encapsulates a sickness in the fanbase.
OK rant over. Go Blue!

Many episodes have been filmed in my neighborhood as well.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||He should have pitched at the 42s mark...||
opposing teams have a clear defensive key on Viramontes...and still aren't stopping him...this is good.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Researchers always state more research is needed...||
it's part and parcel of the scientific method. Almost every paper ever written suggests the need for further research.
When a scientist actually suggests the need for social policy change... that is when the pitch forks come out - not to mention research dollars drying up.
This dance we are doing around the data wrt CTE is complex as hell. Science isn't really helping at the moment given what is known to be true... in my ignorant opinion.

wait for it.

A truly great read.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||This is a good point...Witherspoon had previous contact with||
Rutgers which helped. Witherspoon took an online class that didn't pass muster not to mention he was a LC recruit into a RR system. Andersen probably started this recruitment as well for Wisconsin...there is some ability for coaches to work with admissions as long as all i's are dotted and t's crossed (which is hard to do in a coaching change - though this CC was all about this very issue.)
|17 weeks 5 days ago||This comes down to how transparent Wisconsin has been...||
If they laid it on the line then Stevenson could arrange a backup plan. If they are coming from out of the blue then this is crazy.
Clearly Wisconsin is doing admission differently from others. We haven't had a late fail like this in my memory. Demar Dorsey happened fairly quickly as i recall. Granted the issues were much more black and white for Dorsey.

2 minute wait for boat tags. When this system hits small towns...singularity is nye.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||On the Lake in Leelanau...||
measuring 64 degrees in the water outside the cottage... the best AC on the planet. Coming from the NW where it's been crazy/historically hot this is the life. Michigan is where it's at.
As soon as I post this... the rain starts...it's hard being a Michigan fan.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Agree on disagree - but CTE <> Concussion||
A lack of correlation is a correlation as well...I suppose. I agree if you plot CTE vs. Concussion/TBI you will get a number that suggestive of correlation. If you plot CTE vs. TBI severity or occurence you probably get a number that is less suggestive but still pretty high.. That is coincidence however. Subconcussive blows are a precursor of CTE as well. It's not clear why it develops in some cases and not others. If we take concussions out of the game we are still going to have CTE.
SF Wolverine equates concussion and CTE. That is what I was responding to before stepping into the correlation/causation morass. To address the morass is to define concussion - which in the study of CTE at least is problematic.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Many people are wrong||
Evidence for past concussion is a problem for any researcher. Coincident yes, often coincident again yes, correlate no. Sub concussive blows are needed precursors as CTE exists in cases without concussion. To equate the two is wrong.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Concussion <> CTE||
They do not even correlate.

Not if the full medical record is shared. Too much liability.
It's odd that Pipkins thinks this is a scholarship issue, but Harbaugh is not going to waste a scholarship (ie a walk on would use it.) This is clearly a serious medical issue (probably concussion related) and Pipkins is not aware of the risk. The fact that he feels fine is not relevant.
