It seems like I see their name everywhere on our out of state recruit targets now. I don't know if it's true, but I can't ever remember seeing so many of our of state recruits also considering them. Yuck, recruiting now is even tougher, first OSU raking in elite athlestes everywhere, now State recruiting more successfuly with out of state recruits.

bad. This makes me sad though--I really liked CF Final, great way to catch up with other games, even though I didn't like May, and these new guys seem really lower echelon to me. I've watched Kannell, and he's terrible at picking games and not really that interesting in commentary either. And now with my favorite guy, Chris Fowler, leaving my favorite CF show, Gameday, I'm sad doubly so.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Hey guys, question:||
I had a "micro-agression" post deleted yesterday, just wondering why? Too political? Offensive to a mod? No hard feelings, love the site and the work.
|4 days 9 hours ago||I think the opposite.||
I hate Comcast like everyone else, they are awful. and we've all had bad service everywhere. But except for the case of near monoplies like Comcast and utility companies, those that are bad ususally go out of business at some point, or better companies come along. No government department EVER goes out of business. And they all have way more power over us than a private company.
|4 days 9 hours ago||Um, I said "average" private business.||
Comcast is below average in every coneivable manner
|4 days 10 hours ago||Not evil at all (well normally)||
Just typically misguided, way more inefficient, and WAY less responsive to their consumer than the average private business. Other than that they are ok by me.

knowing and describing what is happening during a game, because you played the game at a high level yourself, and being able to run a pro football team. The two things are not connected in any way. His failure in Detroit does not take away his ability to describe and analyze action on the field. His failures at were management, drafting properly, and hiring the right coach, none of those things are relevant to knowing that a team is running cover zero on this series and telling us why.
|1 week 2 days ago||Mostly agree, except for the blast||
at my sports knowledge. But yeah, never was aware, I was floored. I'm aware of the Detroit Demolition and the women that play in those leagues around the country, and yes I'm well aware of our soccer league (though I ignore it in favor of watching the EPL). I hardly think the comparisons are comparable, but whatever.
|1 week 6 days ago||Yeah,||
I did forget that rest of the tweet, you're right. But that changes nothing of my point, which stands, that he has a right to do so. And does nothing to support your post about kiling brown peope and all the other BS you wrote.
|1 week 6 days ago||Why do we allow claims of offense to assume moral superioity?||
As soon as a person or group claims offense, everyone rushes to apologize and change. These claims are not superior to any other input, and shouldn't be treated as such. "I'm sorry you are offended, no offense meant," is the proper respnse, and then move on.
|1 week 6 days ago||He didn't. He simply said he would show it||
I said if it was a political commetn it only was a free speech comment at most. and free speech is not "taking sides" it is a universal standard.
|1 week 6 days ago||Really? That's the way "free speech works?"||
People should "keep it to themselves?" Good to know, thanks.
|1 week 6 days ago||"By all accounts."||
Yes, that is definitive. And even if that was true, it means nothing. Because the issue (was) whether or not that film should be shown on campus. Whether it is right or wrong to show a fim with a viewpoint that might offend someone else. And thankfully, it was shown, because a group that claims offense does not assume moral superiority over another group. The essence of speech is mutliple viewpoints, all of which might offend someone. So we protect that principle, ESPECIALLY on university campuses. Just as a virulently anti-war film can and should be shown, this film should be shown. And it was, and that is good.
|1 week 6 days ago||WTF are you talking about?||
What political comment did he make beyond saying he would show the movie anyway? That was a free speech comment more than anything else. And as for the rest of your sentance, that was totally irrelevant BS.

You condemned and played along at the same time
|2 weeks 6 days ago||A little sobering.||
Their recuting has moved to a new level in the last year or so, which is bad news given how they obviously do a good job coaching up the talent they get. Will just make Harbaugh's job harder, which of course he's fine with. But I'd prefer it if their recuiting stayed where it was.
|3 weeks 9 hours ago||It has zero to do with Brady.||
Even if Brady admitted this and pled guilty, and even of this was any other QB in the NFL, I would say excatly the same thing. This is a seriously minor nothing rule breaking akin to jaywalking, and part of a centuries long tradition of trying to get an edge in sports. This offense is nothing, and in fact way less than things like corking a bat or throwing a spitter or stealing a sign in baseball. And when those things happen in baseball, they fine them and move on. they don't call out the morality police to agonize over "the children."
|3 weeks 11 hours ago||I'll give Rosenberg one thing.||
As I recall at the time, he was a very early advocate for hiring Bellein, and that was before Bellein even emerged as a candidate. I recall a whole article from him praising Bellein's career and taking a position on what M should do with the hire. He gets props for that, but yeah otherwise he sucks.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||Well done OP. But on another note, why||
does the site keep logging me off and not letting me log back in except temporarily? Haven't seen any notices.

Purdue girl, for 15 years now. Not really a rivalry so it's pretty ok. Though who knows if it will last, she likes to put her flag up on weekends....
|3 weeks 6 days ago||It's already begun. I just saw Bill Polian||
saying on ESPN "this is not jaywalking, it's not going five miles an hour over the speed limit, it's a serious competitve issue." Bill Polian, a respected ex-NFL guy. this proves people have lost their minds. This is PRECISELY a five miles per hour over the speed limit issue. Sigh.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||This was never anything, even when it was a thing.||
Hilarious, an exhaustive investigation that concludes the Patriots "more probably than not," were responsible and Brady "probably" knew about it. The investgators, and all the shocked moralizers in particular that had the vapors during this time, really should have spent their time doing something else entirely.
As was pointed out at the time, it had nothing to do with who won the game, almost all the points, and Brady's best stats, were scored during the time that the balls were properly inflated in the second half. In fact, even if the Pats had won by 3 points the idea that this was some shame or disgrace was laughable. A pitcher that gets found scuffing a ball in baseball has FAR more of an advantage than anyone in this situation, and what do we do about that? Everyone smiles, gives him his punishment, and moves on with the game. This didn't even get near to the same area code as that.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||It would be a HUGE thing if they did-though it shouldn't be.||
They can't admit it because the "tut tut" chorus around the media would be overwhelming. Do you rememebr watching sports and non-sports media at the time? People were actually suggesting that the Pats were disgracing the game and that if it was proven they should be stripped of the title or prevented from playing. It was laughable and absurd, but there were tons of moralizers around leading that chorus.
|4 weeks 9 hours ago||But your major assertion at best was questionable.||
IMO you let the emotion of the situation color your analysis of it. There are many possible ways to have a legitimate investigation by Seattle of this event, as pointed out above, yet you concluded they did nothing-and did not care to-because they didn't speak to two witnesses the police also didn't speak to (after getting their statments). That is a cynical reach.
All said and done however, I do agree that this is a bad situation all around.

I remember the sky being overcast when WD posted that day
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||Yet he's right on both of them.||
I'm troubled by Ace's (and the vast majority of the board) conclusion that the Seahawks did nothing, which as the post above states, is not supported by the article he cites. And he is right on the other bottom line as well, that it is far more honest just to come out and say Clark doesn't deserve a chance to play in the NFL (a stance I'd respect but still disagree with) at all.
|4 weeks 11 hours ago||100% agree.||
It was sloppy thinking for Ace to assume not speaking to those people means they did no other investigation.
