|01/11/2019 - 4:14pm||I think we had one charge…||
I think we had one charge called on us and it was an egregiously bad call. The Illini player was not only moving to the side but I think also jumped and was in the air when he was contacted. That being said, let the refs make the call. Can't be any worse being he's been off on his shot recently.

|01/10/2019 - 1:57pm||Not every failed starter…||
Not every failed starter gets a spot as a backup, just like not every first round pick in MLB makes the pros.
Assuming he never materializes into anything, he would make more money upfront in the NFL (roughly $30M if he is the first overall pick down to around $10M if he is picked in the end of the first round) compared to his $5M signing bonus in baseball.
|01/10/2019 - 1:48pm||Definitely Jim Hermann and…||
Definitely Jim Hermann and then Ron English. Apparently no one even told them QBs were allowed to run because we got destroyed year after year after year by teams with a QB that could run.
|01/08/2019 - 4:02pm||I know the NFL likes to…||
I know the NFL likes to continually re-hire coaches fired from other organizations but how do you hire someone that just failed and was fired in his only head coaching experience in college to be a first time NFL head coach?
|01/04/2019 - 1:28pm||off the top of my head, I…||
off the top of my head, I would say 5 or 6 of the 8 baskets by Watkins were the kind where you just throw up your hands. The defense was strong but sometimes those shots just happen to fall.
|01/04/2019 - 11:39am||Thats what i'm so confused…||
Thats what i'm so confused about. Everyone thinks he's going to be granted a waiver but based on what? That after a fan and student that yelled a racial slur about him, the school took immediate action and kicked that kid out of school? And then his sister subsequently enrolled at the same school? I would have to imagine the request for a waiver is something different than that (maybe Smart promising him the starting job?) but everyone is being so coy about it
|01/03/2019 - 8:35pm||The ref towards the bottom…||
The ref towards the bottom of the TV screen is fucking killing us
|01/02/2019 - 2:23pm||Same but I use rye, not…||
Same but I use rye, not bourbon and prefer mine straight up in a coupe glass.
2 oz Rittenhouse Rye
3/4 oz Carpano Antica (sweet vermouth)
2 dashes Angostura or orange bitters
|01/02/2019 - 2:02pm||I think there are only a few…||
I think there are only a few teams that are risky enough to hire a super young, unproven assistants. NFL teams are the most conservative and would rather hire a proven commodity, even if you are artificially lowering the ceiling that go all-in and risk a big bust. That is why Jeff Fisher got so many jobs, why Vance Joseph and Adam Gase are being interviewed for new jobs less than 24 hours for being fired for utterly failing at their last job and why an NFL announcer that has been out of a game for a decade got $100M.
|12/31/2018 - 2:43pm||Dude, seriously? We had 19…||
Dude, seriously? We had 19 points through the first three quarters of the game and scored the last 20 in the fourth quarter when the game was effectively over. Plus 7 of first 19 points came from an OSU fumble inside their own 10 yd line, not a sustained drive. The offense was shitty when it counted against OSU and pointing to 39 pts doesn't change that
|12/31/2018 - 2:21pm||Agreed with your points and…||
Agreed with your points and would broadly expand it to the substitution patterns make zero sense to me and seem at odds with almost every other game/team I see. It seems like we substitute out pretty much every skill player multiple times per possession which is extraordinary. A team like Clemson ran with pretty much the same personnel for an entire drive, with may the odd sub here and there, yet we rarely run two plays in a row without taking out DPJ or switching Evans for Wilson.
It really hit home the first possession of the OSU game. Higdon started out with a strong 8 yard run to start the drive and was substituted immediately for Evans. Makes no sense. Of course it happened during the Florida game too. Do we really need to see three RBs playing during the course of an 8 play drive?
|12/29/2018 - 3:45pm||Sadly clock management is…||
Sadly clock management is like number 13 on our list of coaching issues.
|12/29/2018 - 3:44pm||Coaching staff is broken. …||
Coaching staff is broken. Replace the whole thing. We just out-talented most of our schedule but were grossly outclassed against teams that could match up against us.
|12/29/2018 - 3:42pm||Better make wholesale…||
Better make wholesale changes to coaching staff. The delay of game on the first play after the safety is a perfect representation of how disjointed, confused and inept our offense has become.
|12/29/2018 - 1:52pm||I will never understand why…||
I will never understand why they continually go away from doing the things that were successful and keep reverting to the unsuccessful plays. It’s like they are trying to prove some insane point.
|12/29/2018 - 10:05am||Huh? It has been broadly…||
Huh? It has been broadly covered by the media. This occurred around a week ago and I read multiple news articles about it. When the district attorney says the shooting appears justified and the players are the ones that called 911 and waited for the police to show up, what more do you want them to do?
|12/29/2018 - 10:01am||Sitting out would never hurt…||
Sitting out would never hurt a player. You really think a replacement player getting 2 sacks or running for 150 yds is going to change 2-3 years of game tape?
|12/25/2018 - 7:08am||Interesting tidbit on Gruber…||
Interesting tidbit on Gruber’s final moment. Alan Rickman was supposed to fall 25 feet into an airbag for the last scene but the prevailing rumor is that they dropped him on two instead of a three count like they had told him they were going to do to get his real reaction
|12/18/2018 - 1:41pm||Ah yes, those remarkable…||
Ah yes, those remarkable three games against Tulane, Rutger and Oregon State where he threw a pass

That Rocky guy? With extra practice he might be able to complete 45% of his passes next year!
|12/05/2018 - 2:08pm||Exactly. If you go to two…||
Exactly. If you go to two best teams, you almost by definition have to get rid of the divisions otherwise they serve no purpose
|12/04/2018 - 7:26pm||It’s not that they…||
It’s not that they purposefully hire bad people, but some people just aren’t good at letting go and/or delegating. So they don’t cede control and it may cause the best and the brightest coordinators to move on or it might cause mixed messages so the O or D would appear disjointed.
At my work, I have people that could execute on any test efficiently and accurately. But tell them to compose a team of junior staff and have them do the work and have him oversee them and they are not as good at it.
|12/01/2018 - 6:09pm||Agreed. If Bama loses, they…||
Agreed. If Bama loses, they would have the same overall record as Oklahoma but one less win vs FBS teams as Oklahoma didn’t play an FCS team. And Oklahoma would have a conf title and have avenged their only loss
Bama would’ve also lost to the best team they played. both teams best two wins are comparable (LSU/Miss St vs Texas/WV).
Look at their resume blindly and you can’t favor Alabama. but then you have to account for the SEC fellatio going on in media

|11/30/2018 - 10:03pm||As implausible as it seems,…||
As implausible as it seems, I actually believe the Chiefs. Maybe I’m being naive but I can’t believe they would be dumb enough to have seen the video and not acted knowing what actually occurred (vs what Hunt told them) and that a video existed and would likely become public at some point.
You would have to be pretty stupid or have your head deep in the sand to have seen this and didn’t think it would eventually go public
|11/30/2018 - 9:59pm||Petty? It’s clear you are a…||
Petty? It’s clear you are a despicable piece of shit.
He shoved her and then came to to level some dude and her causing her to slam into a wall and then kicked her when she was on the ground for good measure.
|11/30/2018 - 3:51pm||I do find it quite amazing…||
I do find it quite amazing how in addition to a never ending cast of giants, Purdue almost always features a never ending cast of 20 going on 65 year olds. I mean how is this guy in college?
|11/30/2018 - 1:25pm||To be fair, they didn't…||
To be fair, they didn't really give a shit about Schiano's past, they just thought they could do better than a mediocre, uninspiring coach. Their chosen reason for protesting just gave them maximum press coverage and pressure
|11/28/2018 - 11:54pm||Agreed. He obviously didn’t…||
Agreed. He obviously didn’t view Louisville as a long term job and has higher aspirations. No reason to make a fairly lateral move unless it’s your long term move.
|11/28/2018 - 5:05pm||I don't think that is the…||
I don't think that is the case. If the season progressed the same way except sub out the ND loss to a win against a directional school, and we would still have little shot at the playoffs. We wouldn't get in over ND, Clemson, the SEC champion or OSU/OU if they win. Maybe if this coming weekend is mayhem we would have a better shot being 11-1 vs. 10-2 but the odds of that happening are infinitesimal. Things may have been different if it was 2016 and we lost to OSU due to a bad spot but by getting blown out, being 10-2 vs 11-1 would not have made a difference when both OSU/OU only have one loss and are playing in conf. championship
|11/28/2018 - 4:58pm||They really need to drop the…||
They really need to drop the FCS schools. Of the top 6 teams in discussion, [not] surprisingly only the two SEC teams and Clemson played an FCS school. I wish the CFP powers that be would demand nine conference games and no FCS schools to be eligible for the CFP and bowl games in general but we'll never see that happen
|11/27/2018 - 10:16pm||I have an issue with a team…||
I have an issue with a team losing a conf championship game and still making playoffs while at least two other teams would have the same records and more impressive wins.
|11/25/2018 - 8:38pm||Who are you going to put…||
Who are you going to put above Michigan? The only P5 teams with less than 3 losses are us and Washington State. You certainly wouldn’t put Florida, PSU, Texas, LSU, Kentucky, or any other 3 loss team above us.
|11/25/2018 - 8:30pm||The RB rotation made the…||
The RB rotation made the least sense. First play of the game Higdon has a strong run for 8 yds and is immediately substituted. For the life of me I can’t figure out the reason for the sub there. It was like that all game.
|11/24/2018 - 9:31pm||The sad thing is, did we…||
The sad thing is, did we even get a QB pressure in this game, let alone a QB hit? Haskins looked as comfortable as can be back there all game. Our D line was nonexistent today
|11/24/2018 - 9:25pm||Because 2 of those TDs were…||
Because 2 of those TDs were in garbage time and another was gifted to us by a fumble on a kick off. Yes the D was miserable, outcoached and just lost out there but let’s not pretend the offense was anything close to great today. This wasn’t the OU-WV game. We got outclassed in all aspects today.
|11/24/2018 - 7:44pm||Motioning doesn’t do dick if…||
Motioning doesn’t do dick if your play calling is as predictable as ours was. Play calling and substitutions made zero sense. If you are going to telegraph your plays and not test LBs with misdirection, legit play action or RPOs it’s easy for them to shoot the gap. We made their LBs life way too easy
|11/20/2018 - 6:37pm||The bigger issue is Martell…||
The bigger issue is Martell entering screams QB run and it’s hard to be successful when everyone knows what the play call is.
Suddently running Haskins was successful because until that point no one expected it. Like Eli Manning pulling on a zone read.
|11/16/2018 - 2:23pm||I'm not sure why Haskins…||
I'm not sure why Haskins would stay from a purely NFL readiness perspective. Even assuming Meyer comes back, its clear that Haskins doesn't fit Meyer's prototypical offense and its not like he's getting stellar coaching or pro-style experience while there (read every scouts report about OSU QBs and WRs). I'm not sure what another year at OSU does for him as it relates to increasing his draft grade.
At least with Shea, he went from a simple one-read offense to a pro-style, complex offense so you can see that he might benefit from another year learning and getting comfortable in a complex offense.

|11/14/2018 - 11:50am||I did a quick summary of the…||
I did a quick summary of the wins/losses of the top 8 teams based on the current record and/or standing of their opponent. For this summary, I didn't differentiate between the record of any non-P5 (ex ND team). Can clearly see a line in the sand after Georgia, but not much differentiating the strength of the opponents between the top 5.
|11/11/2018 - 2:18pm||Bama would sport one win…||
Bama would sport one win against a current ranked team and would be fresh off a loss in the most important game of the year.
Michigan would have at least two such wins and be on a 12 game winning streak.
I fail to see how a loser of a conf championship game would not be eliminated when there are a handful of other teams that would stack up against them.
|11/08/2018 - 8:59pm||How is Auburn overrated? …||
How is Auburn underrated? They are 6-3 and 3-3 in the SEC. 2 of their 3 wins are against the worst teams in the SEC and the third is against 5-4 Texas a&m. and they lost to Tennessee.
|11/07/2018 - 8:39pm||Clemson also plays at a top…||
Clemson also plays at a top 20 BC this week, so they’ll have another leg to stand on if they win.

How is your only concern when a star football player is ordered to not step foot on the school grounds "is his homeschooling eligible per NCAA guidelines"?
|11/06/2018 - 10:25pm||I’ve been saying this all…||
I’ve been saying this all along. Only way a one loss Bama stays in is to lose to LSU and miss the conf championship game. That game is a de-facto play-in game. Plus If Bama loses that they will exactly one win against a ranked team. Michigan will have between 3-5 depending how the season ends.
