There is a certain type of person who reacts negatively to any widely known person that is admired and felt to be worth admiring. You see it all the time: the person is "fake," according to them, they are looking for attention, etc etc. And especially if the person is known to be religious, that pisses off a certain type of person to no end. It's as if the admiration of someone is actually denigrating them: they resent it. I'll never understand it, there is no instance of Tebow that I'm aware of seeking praise or the limelight. It's not his fault ESPN glorified him in college, his achievements merited that. There are tons of people in this world that are better people than me, from Mother Theresa on down, and I never once resented or questioned that admiration. But some do, seeing it as a slap at them IMO.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Kinda torn on that issue.||
I don't like Kelly at all, and generally like coaches taking all the blame, but sometimes it IS on the players, it was their fault, etc.
|4 days 16 hours ago||It wasn't on intent it was him going for the ball.||
That is not the spirit of the rule.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Yep. No matter what we think of PSU terrible call.||
Especially harmful to them given no LB's
|4 days 18 hours ago||Pretty much agree,||
but I'm impressed with their QB's accuracy. However I think we can make him look worse than Sparty's defense can
|4 days 18 hours ago||not sure about that||
he played well last week at ND. Granted they might have a bad defense, but he still did well
|4 days 18 hours ago||True. However the point remains||
that even if ND was over-rated this year (which seems clearly true) going into ND and dominating them is still a good win and the mark of a pretty good team.
|4 days 18 hours ago||The latter||
This QB Wisconsin has looks good, and the defense, which I assumed flukily beat LSU, now looks like the real thing
|1 week 17 hours ago||Actually it's the opposite IMO. Peppers is better than Woodson.||
Peppers is bettter at kick/punt returns than Woodson was. Peppers can play the run and deliver violent hits and play a position Woodson never could play. Woodson was purely a great CB--Peppers can play 10 positions.

He was excellent. Anyone can say what they want about how awful he was with the Lions and they're right, but if they think he can't break down plays and tell you what happened, they are simply wrong. He's one of the best analysts working. Spielman is better, and maybe another guy, but he's good.
|1 week 5 days ago||I thin he meant ads.||
OJ was the Peyton Manning of his day, all over the place on ads and TV.
|1 week 6 days ago||It didn't improve.||
At the end he said "this whole interview has been plowed and seeded already." It was painful and awkward as you suggest. I like Jaime and Stoney as guys, but they spent little time on football questions (the only ones Harbaugh wants to actually answer) and everything was about tangential issues that have already been discusssed, and attempts to draw out humor from him. Not a good job on their parts. Harbaugh does the interview for contractual reasons, he has to be there, if you know him you know he's serious with everyone outside Rich Eisen, stick to opponent football questions and move on.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I've read this a lot, but||
I'm pretty sure Harbaugh would agree that you still have to be able to run the ball when teams stack the box--especially playing a sub-par team like UCF
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Well it's not fun||
that's for sure. But it didn't feel any different to me than getting chewed out by a guy
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Pitch limits themselves have no||
science or evidence behind them. They are completely made up, with a 100 pitch limit chosen as a round number--they as much religion as they are science. Literally no one really knows what the numbers should be--pure guesswork
|2 weeks 4 days ago||There is no justification for it period.||
I don't care if the guy was at 150 pitches, zero justification for it
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Another in the parade of horribles||
that is modern major league managing of pitchers. A whole philosophy of "preserving" pitchers has emerged in the last 15 years that has ZERO fact or evidence behind it. It's a modern day religion with nothing behind the curtain. You would think in metric obessed baseball today that evidence would dirve these decisions, but they are made with less fact than voodoo dolls.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||It still was||
great hit. Nothing has changed.

|2 weeks 4 days ago||Coaching--don't really understand why||
Peppers and other starters were in at 51-14. Risk of injury too great, and building depth at that point is more important.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||That's totally and completely Denard's choice.||
Or should be. NO ONE else should have a say in it. Though you've set up a false choice. It is far, far, from certain that Denard or anyone over a normal percentage of players will have an appreviated lifespan. We have 80 years of experience showing us that as far as we know right now, abbreviated lifespans are not happening from football at rates any different from the general population.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Absolutely. Allow it.||
If free adults choose it, and it hurts no one else, yes.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||You can possibly do more with the game.||
But ultimately you are right. there comes a time when we should say "we've done what we can to make the game as safe as we can, but we've reached the limit. Now it's up to you and future people to decide for themselves if the risks outweigh the rewards." And that is totally and completely fine. It's time to start treating adults as adults--we are allowed to risk our brain health if we want to, and that goes for everyone. The people who say on this blog "I feel guilty watching football now," are ridiculous. I wouldn't feel a twinge of guilt watching competitive skydiving, not should anyone. The same for motorcycle racing or any other potentially dangerous sport.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Really silly advice, and not substantiated either.||
The advice should be, "parents read all you can, and then decide if you think the risk outweighs the reward." Not to mention your other comnent, "every game, x number of players suffer irreversible head trauma." Another ludicrous and unsubstantiated claim.
When you have one of the two prime authors of the brain research that the recent film Concussion was based upon saying specifically that his sons play football right now, this is subtantiation for my point that you are way over-reacting.

is kind of a badass nickname
|3 weeks 1 day ago||That may or may not be true||
(i'm sure the first round part is but that doesn't necessarily equal a "trash" line) but the fact remains he has had great success against good teams not named Alabama.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||That's overlooking one thing||
which was that they did a good job on Fournette (relatively, until that long run), the best RB in the country, and LSU has a strong line I believe too. That tells me running room should be tight for us. Though hopefully our passing game will be far better than LSU's
|3 weeks 2 days ago||this doesn't deserve negs||
I thought it was quite humorous and said in jest
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Don't understand the Patrick hate.||
I think he is one of the best, just voice and description wise. I'll always remember him calling Denard's first touchdown "look at the speed!"
|3 weeks 4 days ago||/despite the big rush yards, the o-line||
IMHO was not getting much push in the frst half (i.e. when Hawaii was still givng their all)
