With a little post game tailgate, you could pretty easily stay until Sunday.

You must be wrong.  Bell can't be good.  Not enough starz!

Just guessing.  Maybe he is  planning on enrolling in a new school in January, which means he'd have to graduate by December.

This was our first non 100% post game win expectancy since ND

Oh boy, proof that Michigan is getting worse.  This is gonna be bad. 

Sincerely Eeyore.

Not sure it is the lack of subpoena power holding the NCAA back.  Might just be a lack of motivation to kill the golden goose.

 

10/02/2018 - 1:16pm The other teams are holding…

The other teams are holding the ball just long enough to get sacked, but not long enough for holding to occur.  But, holding normally occurs as someone is getting free to get a sack.

10/02/2018 - 10:50am Random internet person one…

Random internet person one claims a buddy is an Ortho ( I'm assuming this is short for orthopedic doctor not orthodontist) and says 6 weeks for Jones fracture.  Random internet person two anecdotally reports that he couldn't have play wr 8 wks after his Jones fracture.   

One of these two must be wrong, but the internet is never wrong.  Quite the quandary.

No.  This is a conclusion after one road game that has recently been confirmed by a poor quarter.

Nefarious Eduardo?

Whenever a ball clanked off a dbs hands, my dad would inevitably turn to me and say, "maybe there is a reason why he is on defense."

Way to double down on the stupidity.  If your eyes are like your brain, I think it is very likely that you can easily apply the "simple" eye test. 

The only way you argument makes any sense is:

If ND has gotten better faster than M has so that if they played now, ND would be Michigan by more than ND beat Stanford. Michigan wouldn't now have to beat ND to be ahead of Stanford, they could be ahead simply because they played a common opponent closer and given the limited data available, this could imply the M might be better than Stanford.

IMHO, the fact that coaches are not allowed to comment on the refs without risk of being fined is part of the problem.  Leads to a lack of transparency.  

09/30/2018 - 8:17am Pretty sure they also…

Pretty sure they also commented on the JKP block in the back call, saying it was wrong, but seeing how the refs could miss that one.

09/30/2018 - 8:09am I think the reffing problem…

I think the reffing problem could be at least partially addressed by more transparency.  Make the ref grades public.  Allow teams to select/deselect crews ( like a jury selection process).  Maybe even get rid of the notion that coaches get fined for criticism of the refs.

Makes the rest of the league look bad?

Audrey Thomas, kick returner.

"Ackron" had two pick 6s.  Their O didn't score 39.  But why let facts get in the way of a good narrative.

Don't get this comment at all.  Hutchinson played.

PSU v. OSU in the Silence Bowl

or should it be

Football First Bowl

or maybe 

Look the other way Bowl

I feel like this is a trick question as it makes it seem like there can be only one participant whose SoS could be hurt.  I'll say both.

I don't know how the process works and this comment is not valid if a unanimous vote was required.  But, unless a single voter could have vetoed, I wouldn't put too much stock into the fact the the announced vote was unanimous.  If pre-vote "straw poles" come back as something like 10-2 the 2 will often recognize that they are on the losing side and will change their votes so that the final announced vote is unanimous for the purpose of appearing unified.

09/23/2018 - 10:18am Making the assertion that…

Making the assertion that Rutgers needs to go because of off field issues is reasonable.  Doing that by implying I somehow equated Rutgers to NU is not.  Especially when my NU comment was clearly and purposely limited to football performance.

09/23/2018 - 8:13am It wasn't all that long ago…

It wasn't all that long ago when Northwestern was Rutgersesque in their football performance.  In more recent years, NU has been very solid.  Programs can turn it around.

You say your gonna leave, you know it's a lie

Seems like you kinda complained about it today too.

I'd go so far as to say that it was a bold move Cotton.

Kind've??  Can't blame auto correct for that one.

How exactly does the flag come out so far after the play?

Whoose leg is more sore tomorrow, Moody or Nebraska's punter?

Don't think it can be obvious from one injury report 3 weeks into the season.

What the heck happened to Nebraska ticket prices?

Troy.

Why do they get preferential treatment?  Two reasons 1) They don't police themselves and 2) $$$ they bring in means others don't want to police them

09/22/2018 - 8:37am 3-3 last week and 8-8…

3-3 last week and 8-8 overall on the season on the best bets.  This is why I don't gamble.

09/22/2018 - 8:33am At some point you have to…

At some point you have to assume some knowledge on behalf of your readers.  For example, the post you call out also says 7-0 without explanation.  I'd imagine there are people who might read that without knowing what it means, but it is reasonable to assume that most people on a sports blog will know what that means.  Similarly, it seems reasonable that people reading a thread on betting might be familiar with a term used in betting.  Further, you take him to task for not typing out three words, when you could have typed three words into Google "meaning of ATS" and gotten the answer.

So, if you're going to call PI closely, shouldn't it go both ways?  In the Proche touchdown, it looks like he is stiff arming the defender to keep him away while the ball is in the air.

09/20/2018 - 7:29pm How do you know this one is…

How do you know this one is late?  Maybe all the others were early?

09/20/2018 - 7:26pm I agree that the backlash is…

I agree that the backlash is over the top.  A bit of herd mentality.  That being said, this has been discussed numerous times and there is apparently nothing new that prompts additional discussion, so I think that there is something wrong with the post.

I'm pretty sure you didn't do this on purpose, but this ended up being a little inappropriate given the jgoblue11's post above this.

Just one guitar, slung way down low.

Couldn't get a ticket, it was a sold out show.

 

dammit, still wrong song.

You're not thinking big enough with expansion.  How about University of Jupiter at Titan?
