Someone in the comments at SBNation site Roll "Bama Roll gets the credit.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||What?||
"You are just as guilty as Joe Paterno of putting football above crime and victims."
I don't agree with this at all. I can't speak for who you are responding to, but that goes too far.
No punishment is going to fit the crime. The leaders will likely see prison time though. I think a lot of people want revenge on PSU because the crimes are so shocking.I think a postseason ban will be the likely punishment on the program. To me that seems like the probable "compromise".
|2 years 35 weeks ago||Feb 2001?||
The date of the email looked funny to me. I kept hearing Mcqueary witnessed the shower incident in 2002, and that was what was reported leading up to the trial, but I looked it up and Mcqueary changed it to 2001 in his testimony.
Just saying if anyone else noticed the same thing.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Relax||
I read it that way and laughed to myself. I'm not that anal to seriously correct people. I was just sharing something slightly humorous.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||you||
You misspelled chain.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||I wonder||
I wonder if they had to check with compliance first.
Only half kidding. I agree, kidney donation goes in the plus column.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||I wouldn't worry about that||
Space Emperor is a Michigan Man.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||I bet bowls||
I don't care what the article says, I bet the end result is the Rose and Sugar Bowls are used as semis. I predict that as long as the champs of the B12, B1G, Pac and SEC are in the top 4 they meet in their contracted bowl game, there will not be seeds, so 1 could play 2 before the NC. When the conference champ doesn't qualify, they will not get into the bowl and will be replaced by the team that qualified.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||We are not sure||
Where do we draw the line based on accusations that aren't charged? The Duke lacrosse case is a rare exception, but I don't think we should assume initial reports are true. Was it full corrobaration, or partial from the teammate? I don't remember the details from the article. We have questions, but we don't actually know.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||The weird thing||
The weird thing is that he doesn't have a garage, just a circle driveway. Don't tell me that the garage is out of the picture. I don't see a garage and I am therefore sticking with the belief that a garage does not exist.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||Slightly OT||
I've noticed that Nebraska isn't on the schedule, I'm disappointed that there isn't a complete round robin for Big Ten play. The newcomers have a good program and should be playing the top program in the Big Ten. Hopefully that changes in the future.

A man willing to schedule Appy State seems like the kind of guy to schedule Arizona.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||Good for Denard||
I'll admit that I was one who thought the team might be better with Denard playing more of a Percy Harvin role and Devin playing QB. Most people arguing for Devin at QB did not want Denard "benched". So I don't think that word is accurate. Credit to Denard for improving when I thought he was stagnating. I never stopped rooting for him, just questioning if he had reached his ceiling as a passer. I'm not holding my breath when he passes anymore.

The Backyard Brawl is their big game.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||It is based on more than the MSU game.||
Granted fans don't have enough evidence to say Gardner should play, but Denard has been making people cringe with his passes for awhile now. The loss just opened the door for people to say what they have been thinking. People tend to stay quiet after a win, although some people have touched on it.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||When the D takes away the running game||
When the D takes away the running game the qb needs to be able to exploit the holes in the passing game. Michigan has good receivers. Devin appears (with limited playing time as evidence) to be able to throw where he wants to, although it may or may not be the right read. Denard is like my golf game, he knows where he wants to go with the ball, but doesn't consistently get it to where he is aiming.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||As of now, BTN||
8 pm, Monday, September 5.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||ND is still evaluating their options.||
The fact that they haven't made a decision yet, which doesn't seem it should take that long, and the reemergence of realignment has gotten me to waste time speculating about B1G things. I know, unlikely.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||T-Bob?||
I can't be the only one who read that as Tackle Bob Hebert, as in the position he plays.
As mentioned below, Bobby Hebert to Anthony Carter was fun to watch.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||A&M isn't a cultural fit with the B1G||
But they do fit academically. I think it would be difficult for them to sell a move to the Big Ten with how their base has embraced the possible move to the SEC. It would be funny to see A&M on BTN while Texas still doen't have a carrier for the Longhorn Network.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||I doubt the SEC goes to 16||
Although I wouldn't be too surprised. I am confident they will go to 14.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Wasn't||
Wasn't Penn State the biggest temporarily durting renovations? I could be wrong, but I thought that was the case.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Of the 4||
Of the 4 major pro team sports, I think the baseball playoffs are the closest to a coin flip in each series and is the least likely to crown the best team as the champion. The shortened rotations and off days during the playoffs make it completely different from the regular season.
The best regular seaon team doesn't make it to the World Series as often as they did prior to the expansion of the playoffs obviously. In short, the regular season doesn't matter once the playoffs begin.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||I think||
I think Crean married Harbaugh's sister.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Yes, the growth spurt||
The growth spurt is a clue that he may be a late bloomer, and worth the "risk' of a greyshirt offer. I think Dennis Rodman was 5' 11" when he graduated high school. I know it's a different sport and I'm not saying that Clark will be a comparable athlete, I'm just making the point that some people physically mature later than others. If that is the case here, he could be a real steal.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Exactly, recruiting sites aren't everything||
Coaches were able to recruit before the internet, they have their own criteria. If they offer a kid who is ranked low because he didn't market himself by going to all of the camps the sites pay attention to, it doesn't mean the coaches don't think he is a better fit than someone highly ranked.
Recruiting sites are for the fans. It's like complaining about an NFL team drafting someone ranked below one of Mel Kiper's favorites.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||I don't care||
I don't care about helmet stickers being used or not, but Michigan would not be copying Ohio State. Helmet stickers began at Miami (OH) in 1965, coached by Bo Schembechler. OSU copied Bo.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||There are||
There are nine redshirt juniors by my count. I would guess about four (not guessing who) don't get a fifth year and with let's say about four transfers and the 18 spots that are currently available we get 26.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||All M and N||
Pretty easy if you remember it as Iowa plus all Ms and Ns.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||This is||
This is the start of the three-of-a-kind trend which beats a pair.
