|18 weeks 3 days ago||Bye week||
Brandon gets canned the week of the next bye week. That makes it a story that can run its course when there isn't a game.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Big Ten||
Big Ten does not have night games in November so Ohio and NU are out. That leaves ND and Minnesota.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Dream Team||
Dream Team would beat this years team handily. I think there's a good argument the 2000 team would beat this years. Stockton, Reggie Miller, Pippen, Maline, and Robinson with Payton, Barkley, Grant Hill, and Penny Hardaway coming off the bench.
|2 years 43 weeks ago||I heard Warner's comments||
I heard Warner's comments yesterday. I took them to mean that he wasn't sure if he wanted his sons to play professional football. I didn't take them to mean that he didn't want his kids growing up playing football, just that the speed of the game and getting hit in the NFL is a different level that he might be uncomfortable with for his kids. I could be wrong, but that's how I heard it.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Your comment||
Your comment also seems to assume that the coaches know in advance that he is only going to be on special teams and play in two games. Maybe the guy goes out and forces two fumbles in the first game and earns some more playing time. It's easy to look back and say, "Oh, they should have redshirted him" when you know the outcome of the season.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||We were highest 4 seed.||
|3 years 4 weeks ago||I got 4||
I got 4 this morning. Based on PP I would assume the largest number of season ticket holders got access today, and I wouldn't be surprised if they sold out pretty soon.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||There was a tweet||
yesterday that Kozan would sign at Noon mountain time. May be a long wait.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||What is his given name?||
You might be able to come up with something off that. (I am assuming that Trey is already a nickname).
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Bama||
Bama is a days driving distance from Dallas. I would say that Bama could sell out this game with just their fans. I think there is going to be a hell of demand for this game.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||They are correct||
That is just IRS stuff.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||The more I watch it||
The more I watch it, the more I think it's a catch. I don't see how you can say it's indisputable either way.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||If they||
If tablets only went on sale every decade or so and were limited in amount, then you might have a point. I was glad this post came up...reminded me to get one for my dad for Christmas.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Craziest one is||
TCU loses to UNLV, KState loses to ISU, LSU loses to Georgia...we play in Fiesta Bowl. At least according to the widget.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Priority||
Priority points are how the Ath. Dept. determines who gets what when stuff is limited. You don't "use" them per se. You just have them. If you give $100 bucks then your points are active and will put you ahead of all people with less points and the general public. For Bama game, if there is a Victors Club sale you will get priority over all those you are ahead of.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||I completely agree.||
I don't want a rematch but I don't see how anyone can credibly argue that Alabama and LSU aren't the two best teams. The game went to OT and could have gone either way. If LSU loses on Saturday I hope they still make it. I think it would be even more BS if Bama went over them and they both had one loss.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Well done||
Well done, sir.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||I think Rivals||
I think Rivals just defaults to noon. The B1G hasn't put out its release yet that lists game times. I think its likely to be a noon game but nothing official yet.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||This should be removed||
Speculation about how our favorite football team could potentially benefit from a cover up of multiple child sex assaults? Not for this board.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||I wouldn't||
I wouldn't be surprised if the prosecution is happy with this. There is an indication that Paterno would be a witness for the prosecution. You don't want your witnesses making public statements if you can help it.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Seems to me||
Seems to me this has nothing to do with the NCAA. They enforce the rules having to do with amateur status and how programs are run. If a coach gets DUI there is nothing that can be done.
I think this is a common misconception when people equate NCAA rules with the law. One has nothing to do with the other. For example, taking cash from some booster isn't illegal, just against NCAA rules.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||Concourse||
I took a 10-month old to the Western game and all I can say is your new bestfriend will be the concourse on the west side of the stadium. When we walked in, an usher said if it got too hot for our little one to take her up there because there was a nice breeze. She proceeded to fall asleep so I walked up there. I watched the whole game up there and stayed out of the down pour when it happened. The only rule is that you have to stay behind the yellow line where handicap seating is. (There was no one in those seats for the WMU game). You can stand there as long as you want. It is a great place to watch the game. The best spot is above the student section because the students haven't figured out they can go in and out up there. I realize a 3-yr-old will be more mobile but it's still a good choice. My advice...go to your seats and stay there as long as the kids will take it. After that head up to the concourse and watch the rest of the game from there. You'll basically watch the game from standing room only tickets that have sightlines as good as the club level.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Congrats||
Good luck in the future and looking forward to seeing your stuff on ESPN.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||I always||
I always have enjoyed Lake Forest GC. The front nine is kind of bland, but it's relatively cheap and always in good shape. I've played Pierce Lake in Chelsea as well a few years ago, which I enjoyed.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Not me||
Glad I'm not the only one.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Has anyone||
Has anyone received their Alumni tickets? I got my fourpack tickets, but nothing from AAUM.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Always at noon||
Always at noon in AA, but who knows if the new lights will tempt a 330 start.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Belleville||
My parents stayed in Belleville once when they couldn't find anything in AA. Typical economy hotels but its only 20 min or so to AA.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Not a big deal IMO||
I know quite a few athletic trainers that work for BCS schools. A number of them get free cars from a dealership. It is usually one that is a sponsor. I agree this is only somewhat of a story because of everything else.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||My tickets||
My tickets are in row 9 in the southwest corner. It is tough to see stuff at the other end but not impossible. I think the action right in front of you when they come to your end more than makes up for it.
