Alabama has claimed national championships for less than what UCF accomplished. Bama fans are the only ones who have no right to criticize other programs for claiming a national championship, given the "17 championships" they claim. If anything, UCF is following Alabama's lead.

There was no dispute among my friends that could not be solved with a duel in either classic shooter.
|01/25/2018 - 4:34pm||My suggestion||
Tailor the rules to allow air raid and other exciting wide spread offenses to thrive. It would invite a new set of fans and would offer an outlet for college spread players who don't adapt to NFL schemes.
|01/22/2018 - 7:08pm||Great opportunity||
Awesome opportunity to coach Mariota. Unlimited potential for that guy.
|01/13/2018 - 8:37pm||Good news / bad news||
Good news: the system in place to warn of an incoming ballistic missile works.
Sounds terrifying. I'd hate to have to keep a child calm during such a time.
|01/07/2018 - 9:03am||Crybabies||
When the playoff format was announced, I said something of the following: just wait until a crybaby fanbase gets left out ay #5. And there are no bigger crybabies than Ohio State and Alabama, who think everything should be theirs. Just wait until one of those is #5. The calls to expand to 8 will be deafening. Then at 8, just wait until a crybaby is #9.
Look at this year. Alabama jumped Ohio State, left out at 5, and they throw tantrums. I grew up in Ohio, have OSU friends and family. Yes, tantrums. 8 teams is likely unfortunately coming.
Only 1 team has the right to be upset and that is UCF. OSU has no right to be upset when they jumped Penn State last year for the same reason Alabama jumped them this year. I heard no sympathy from the OSU people; only justification of why they deserved it more than Penn State. Crybabies all of them now.
|01/06/2018 - 8:39am||Canada > Enos||
If given the opportunity, I would hire Canada as OC in a heartbeat. If Enos refused to be a position coach, I'd send him packing.
|01/01/2018 - 11:53pm||Carr||
I remember hearing similar things even when Lloyd Carr was around. What I would give for an innovative and effective offense.
|01/01/2018 - 6:40pm||To answer all four questions ...||
1. Very difficult to implement elements in our system. Oklahoma's offense all starts with the linemen. Same place every offense starts. They are a different type of linemen than ours. They run block differently, they are trained differently, they are built differently. I don't think you can plug and play parts of an air raid system into a mismatching offensive line.
2. Yes. Look at Baylor. Even without elite QBs, they had year after year of monster stats. Then the scandal hit. Mayfield elevates Oklahoma from potent to national championship caliber.
3. They recruit very well. And then they develop the talent better than any spread offense
4. Start with a new OC. Time to shake things up some. If you want to spread things out some (count me in), I'd find a solid west coast type of coordinator. Something to pass a lot out of the spread but maintain some under center power formations so you can do it all without massive personnel changes.

I put it on par with The Empire Strikes Back. But for different reasons. Where TESB is about learning the ways of the Force, this one questions the very nature of good and evil in the Star Wars universe. And I'll say no more until everyone has seen it.
See it. It's amazing.

That's what I'm seeing. Nobody wants to be challenged. I call it the "Marvel effect". People want familiar. Flashy and familiar.
|12/15/2017 - 6:07pm||Loved it||
The film had a lot of nuance. It questioned philosophically the roles of the Jedi, Sith, and other tenants of the Star Wars universe. Star Wars is traditionally very black and white - this one questions who truly is good and bad. Awesome. It tore down some Star Wars structures in order to build some new ones. I put this one with The Empire Strikes Back - but for different reasons.
|12/03/2017 - 4:39pm||Exactly what I expected||
I thought the committee by ranking Alabama 5 before playoffs was tipping their hand to indicate Alabama was next up. Ohio State needed to blow the doors off Wisconsin to leap past Alabama and they did not.
Last year PSU got hosed because we beat them so bad. This year Ohio State got destroyed by Iowa. Difference is we were a top ten team last year and this year Iowa has a losing conference record. The writing was on the wall.

I do a lot of data recovery. I have no lab at home so my physical options with the drive are limited.
I would plug the drive into a Linux box and try dd to image the drive. If you get a read, you're good - now mount the image and retrieve your data.
If you don't get a read, you might be able to swap out boards. Research your specific drive before trying because there is a possibility of making things worse by swapping boards.
Now if there's a mechanical problem, then you really need a lab. I can recommend some good companies.
And if I'm speaking Greek to you, take these suggestions to a friend who can translate and have him or her try it out.

If Nick Saban made false statements about receiving death threats and made Alabama fans look like total crazies, he would be in big trouble. Fired, no, but big trouble and would have to make some serious public apologies. My opinions withheld on if Alabama and Florida fans are crazies.
|10/12/2017 - 12:56pm||I expect so||
I expect the JOK we see at season end will be very different from the JOK we see now. He is going to develop a ton this year I think. The X factor is the Ohio State offense. They have been quite good in recent weeks. The question is if they've actually been good or if they've been putting up great numbers against terrible teams.

The new coach needs to go. He is in over his head. In his second year and he inherited a team that had won the MAC East three straight times all of which were east sweeps, two of three conference championships, three recent wins over Big Ten teams, and he has sank the team quickly and has utterly killed interest among the alums and fans. He's got to go before causing even more damage.
And BTW, South Dakota most certainly has a more impressive offense than MSU.

A good friend of mine died last year of leukemia or some similar type of cancer. He was an OSU alum and spent much of the last year of his life at the cancer center at the OSU hospital. Ultimately he died there, his condition was found too late. If the work and tests done in his time there lead to breakthroughs, my old friend in a way is able to live on.
He was a good man and a good friend.

I found a video of a local Mississippi news station asking people on the street their thoughts about the band ceasing Dixie at games. Where in Mississippi did the reporter go to ask regular people their thoughts on a topic? Wal Mart, of course.

With how much talent just left for the NFL, this is far too high. I like the starters but depth worries me. They need time to develop.

Hiring Lincoln Riley sounds a bit like Texas Tech hiring Kingsbury. Young, offensive minded, no head coaching experience, entire career in air raid offenses. Hasn't worked out so well at Tech. I hope Riley is ready, that job is one of the best in the country.

My wife is Chinese
My wife is Chinese and red is a traditional wedding color. So the best color to go with red is black, IMO. So myself and the groomsmen had black suits, white dress shirts, and red power ties. Looked like a board room.
|06/04/2017 - 9:50am||Alternative suggestion||
Our wedding colors were red and black. So normally the groomsmen and bridesmaids are on the hook to buy or rent attire. We decided for something different.
|05/22/2017 - 8:20am||Good luck||
Ford doesn't have a corporate flag football team do they? If so, as long as Hackett doesn't try to hire Harbaugh we're all good.
Seriously, congratulations. Great career move.
|05/06/2017 - 11:22am||Chad Henne||
For a four year starter, he had a noticeable lack of development. Hit a few walls. He would have benefitted greatly from better coaching and more creative schemes. With all that talent, he and the offense could have been off the charts.

MS, Purdue University. My expectation is Purdue wants to expand online learning, much like UMUC or Penn State World Campus. Acquiring Kaplan means acquiring infrastructure.

If I am the Browns GM I draft Peppers first overall and put him at FS. He is such a flexible player that I know I can move him all around the defense and then mix and match my secondary and LBs until I find several lineups that work.

|12/14/2016 - 7:00am||Defense and coaching||
Wake has an outstanding defense and one of the best coaching staffs anywhere. Dave Clawson is an excellent program builder. He took Bowling Green from 2-10 to conference champs in 3 years, improving each year, all on the back of the defense. And he has used the same defensive coordinator, Mike Elko, the whole time.
With this scandal out of the way, I hope we see Wake Forest break through next year. They had a season that can be called both good and disappointing this past year. Perhaps they are ready to take the next step forward and compete in the ACC.
|12/09/2016 - 6:43pm||Cincinnati fan||
I'm torn on the Fickell report. His results as a DC are great. But he had a chance to be a HC and he blew it. OSU was stacked in 2011 and he led them to 6-7. And worse, they played their worst games in November. To me a sign of good coaching is a team that comes together at the right time.
I hope he proved me wrong. If and when Big 12 expansion talks resume, I want Cincinnati to get the call. They won't if the football team is bad or boring.
