I feel like this will be like last week...a bunch of good games late, but no way to predict it beforehand. But I suppose that's conference football.

...shall be Iowa team who had PSU down and out (for the most part) shall we say.

...Go Blue!!.... SHOCK THE WORLD upset of Penitentiary State today !!

So sick of hearing espn drool over Barkley.. f that. Noon games are shit. Let's go Hoosiers! ..... Then the real fun begins at 7:30.

Game Day is going to completely gloss over the whole Sandusky thing of course.

Which, OK that's their choice.

But then don't shove a narrative down our throats about this being some kind of great Penn State redemption and recovery on the big stage, as if they were the victims.

If you are going to cover it as just a big football game then cover it straight up as just a big football game.

The Big 10 title game last year was full of that revisionist history BS, so I don't expect this gameday crew to differ much. But let it be said that in April of this year a trustee for their school said he was running out of sympathy for the child victims because, apparently, they had won a lawsuit and were now rich. So this is still a POS administration that believes Joe Pa didn't know anything and this was just a cash grab by some kids who, I guess, wanted to be sexually assaulted in showers for years while people ignored it.

Dear Jim/Jay/Chris,

Please don't try that cute pooch kickoff shit with James Foug. Trying to kick it high and get it to the 1 yardline so they have to return.

It works the majority of the time, but Saqoun Barkley doesn't need anymore touches. Put them on the 25. Or force him to come out of the endzone 6 yards deep.

Sometimes I wonder if Harbaugh is so obviously spacey in interviews in a deliberate effort to be evasive, or if this guy is actually that out there. That clip does not engender confidence...

I was just about to edit my post and add this.
He wears it on his sleeve. When he's smiling and laughing he's long-winded and interesting.

When he's tired. He's short and will look at you like you're a fucking moron.

When he's mad/grumpy/etc. - he can be rude or unresponsive. You don't have to be a psychologist to see it.

I think is level of "spacy" depends on the mood as well. And maybe that's not because he's more space when he's mad...he just doesn't care enough to think about what he says or how he says it.

...maybe someone should ask him at the next presser?

My *Hot Take*

...I honestly just think it's his mood. I've said this about pressers as well.

Now pause, he IS "out there." But I don't think it's like how the media portrays him as some crazy man who craves attention and just wants publicity stunts over and over.

I think he just loves to be in "the moment." He's willing to do anything if asked at the right time...rap videos, high dives, etc.

But when he doesn't care or doesn't want to do it...he's extra spacey and even rude from time to time. When he's having fun, he's loveable Jim. Goofy and talking about 2%.

except there's no "maybe" about it. Any personality slightly outside a societal norm is labeled a "disorder."

Honestly, if I see a room full of little kids and one is off by him/herself playing alone, I think to myself "there's the one kid that might be something great in life." Or possibly a mass murderer, but you know, I like to be optimistic.

Saw the "Mom, I'm fine" sign, but overall, very lackluster signs. I'm one that can appreciate a well-played dig even if it's at us, but so far their signs are pretty lame overall. No creativity at all.
