I'd like Cal, a somewhat reputable football team who we should beat almost every year, combined with the "top academic institution" storyline.

Occupy Dave Brandon's office. We'll get quicker results than the real movement.

04/10/2012 - 2:25pm At least Bayless was

At least Bayless was blatantly lying to a comedic extent. I mean, averaging less than two points a game? You're not just below average, you actually suck at the sport. Literally any high school guy with an ounce of athletic ability could score 1.4 Pts a game. Everyone loves a little fisherman's exaggeration, but this is just an outright LIE. Good thing he found one of the only careers in America where you simply have to read and them yell about some 14 year old's tweet about the Jets' backup QB.

After living through approximately two years of this twitter phenomenon I think it can be concluded that things said on twitter typically don't have any REAL meaning or importance (save the Pakistani dude who live tweeted the bin laden raid). Twitter: the best communication tool to communicate relatively little.

So I'm guessing this isn't a good indication of the direction of USNT is going to go in a few years. Losing to a country where I'm pretty sure soccer is played inside on grass while hockey is played outside on the ice, followed by a poor performance against country that sounds like a quaint Caribbean island you'd love to honeymoon to (except it isn't), definitely isn't installing me with confidence.

If anything that speaks to the immaturity of the "graduates". Strangely, there are people who have different views out there and sometimes (oh heavens!) you have to listen to them. Trying to not get political, but there have been well known political speakers from every stripe and those students simply embarrassed themselves and Michigan. Maybe they could have used another civics class before they graduated.

"We had, I told them, the worst shower discipline of any team I've ever been around," Dooley told the media during his first season. "So we talked a little bit about application of soap to the rag and making sure you hit all your body."

02/12/2012 - 12:38pm Two-Hand Touch Kickoffs?

Possibly idiotic, but in my opinion it isn't anymore of an actual change in the game as the shortened kickoffs (granted college kickers don't kick AS FAR as NFL kickers, which would mean that there will be more returns than whatever miniscule percent of kickoffs were actually returned in the pros).  This would still allow for onside kicks and possible returns for touchdowns, though the blocking impacts would still be the same.

Feel free to say this is a dumb idea... but then ask yourself if you could imagine the NFL instituting such a rule, I can and I'm sure the NCAA would subsequently follow the NFL's lead.

02/12/2012 - 12:30pm Grey Anyways So...

... if we want to judge Ohio players and others for taking cash/gifts, we also have to judge Michigan.  Granted, as posters above indicated, taking money doesn't make one a BAD PERSON, it means they made irresponsible, disingenuous, and BAD DECISIONS.  Everyone has made bad decisions and I'm willing to wager there are posters on this board who have made poor choices which have had, or have the potential to generate, more seriously negative consequences (not even criminal... think of cheating on a spouse, drunk driving, etc).

02/12/2012 - 11:40am Aqua, you make me happy. 

Aqua, you make me happy.  Just tried to think about this but I'm still currently too hung-over... anyone want to brainstorm what other schools could combine:

1. Tier 1 (i.e. top 3 team in a top 5 conference) football program.

2. Good overall education.

3. Solid engineering, mechanical especially.

I'm glad this kid cares about academics, even if football and engineering proved to be too challenging to be success in both areas, at least this proves the kid has his mind in the right place and isn't choosing a football team, he's chooing a university.  That's the most important thing about college athletics and something that is often overlooked in college football...  

1. Education 2. Football

02/12/2012 - 11:31am Exactly, this is America and

Exactly, this is America and if you want to risk your body to make big bucks, I say go for it.  Obviously, I'm not saying the game can't be made safer, but I also don't want to see college football turn into Roger Goodell's NFlagFL (ok ok childish) where you have THREE 5,000 YARD PASSERS IN ONE YEAR! How many 5,000 yard passers were there before this season? 2. TWO.  http://www.newsday.com/sports/football/5-000-yard-passers-in-nfl-history-1.3398980#5

Now try telling someone these rule changes aren't having a significant impact on the game, look at the Patriots offense forgodsakes, these quick slants to midget receivers would have never worked as well back in the day when there was enforcement for coming across the middle, now... if James Harrison looks at someone the wrong way it's a fine (yes I agree some of his hits are questionable, but c'mon... is he really three times as bad as anyone in the league (judging by the amount of fines, Goodell says yes... or maybe that's just because Harrison isn't scared of some suit who never even played college ball (and he went to a  D. III school outside of Pittsburgh known for quality, small-time football). 

What Goodell has done to the NFL is inexcusable and goes beyond safety, it's about his idea of NBA-style entertainment, where every possession should end in a score.  Before this season I was a much bigger Steelers fan, now... I could barely care less and have completely refocused my attention to college football.

02/12/2012 - 11:15am Okay, then just ban

Okay, then just ban kickoffs.  I mean look at the NFL, the kickoff is now just a placeholder to make sure they can get in that extra commercial (you know how the NFL loves the sequence of):

1. Scoring Play

2. Commercial Break

3. PAT

4. Commercial Break

5. Kickoff (Probably a touchback now-a-days)

6. Commercial Break

7. Real Play Resumes

(Estimated time between action #1 and #7... well let's just say you ain't watching soccer bud, prepare to witness hundreds of Bud Light commercials in one 3 hour sitting).

"(especially if they don't really care about finishing their degree in the future)?"

If that was the case, I think the school should be re-examining why they gave that student a scholarship.  That type of mentality is why people question issuing 1,000s of scholarships to athletes while there are students around the country struggling to just stay in school and complete their degree.

After seeing the halftime show: Does anyone else get literally creeped out watching Anthony Davis play basketball?  It's like he's not even human; more like some sort of Gumby-alien.  I felt the goose bumps on my spine when he went up for a rebound and his gooooomby arms just shot and somehow managed to grip the ball (even though it's like catching a pass with chop sticks)!
