Yeah, but even Mike Hart tripled his career lost fumbles that day....making what should have been a massacre a comfortable win.

03/14/2018 - 11:14am I have news for you.....

we are ALL hypocrites. 

03/14/2018 - 10:58am That is a Catholic teaching,

That is a Catholic teaching, not a biblical one.

Biblical teaching leans towards age of accountability. King David stated that his dead infant child, the son of Bathsheba, could not come to him, but will go to his son. From that comes the teaching of the age of accountability....though to be fair, the bible does not specifically address that teaching either. 

03/13/2018 - 6:30pm I am pretty sure he can

I am pretty sure he can participate in all football activities...except dressing for a game. He could practice in spring. It is my understanding that the QBs get equal snaps in the spring, but the #1 probably gets the majority of those with the 1s and 2s vs the depth and scout team guys.

From the NCAA website: 

Transfer Process

Academic year in residence: Under the basic transfer regulations, you must spend an academic year in residence at the school to which you are transferring. If you transfer from a four-year college to an NCAA school, you must complete one academic year in residence at the new school before you can play for or receive travel expenses from the new school, unless you qualify for a transfer exception or waiver. To satisfy an academic year in residence, you must be enrolled in and successfully complete a full-time program of studies for two-full semesters or three-full quarters. Summer school terms and part-time enrollment do not count toward fulfilling an academic year in residence.

Being from Ohio, I like to say that New Jersey is the armpit of America because of location (imagine New England as the arm) and well, it's Jersey.

02/14/2018 - 10:35am Yeah....

If she wants to have an affair, he should totally support her in that. 


She was active in this career before they dated, while they were dating, and now after they are married, so he should not have an issue with it If he does, he shouldn't have married her. But to make a blanket statement that a husband should support what his wife wants to do is very naieve and ignores the complexites of life and relationships. 

02/09/2018 - 9:11am Speight was also coming off a

Speight was also coming off a shoulder injury that could have still been on the mend causing some velocity/accuracy issues. To compound this, he was throwing to freshman receivers, the most advanced of whom was already out for the year, who were running option routes. If Speight was already having arm issues, combine that with a lack of confidence that he and the receiver were making the same read, then the ball could be coming out late or thrown to an area nobody, not even Tacopants, could catch.

02/05/2018 - 10:48am Except for the part where he

Except for the part where he double clutched and didn't get the second foot in bounds, you have a point. The ball went from hand to being trapped between forearm, bicep and body. That is not continuing possession, it is reclaiming possession and requires 2 steps from that point. It was a bad call, but it did not cost the Patriots the game.

02/05/2018 - 8:26am Well...

I think it was the right call, but barely. He took three steps not 4, and was being contacted on the third step. It was a close call

02/05/2018 - 8:18am Here is the NFL Rule from their website:
  1. secures control of the ball in his hands or arms prior to the ball touching the ground; and
  2. touches the ground inbounds with both feet or with any part of his body other than his hands; and
  3. maintains control of the ball after (a) and (b) have been fulfilled, until he has the ball long enough to clearly become a runner. A player has the ball long enough to become a runner when, after his second foot is on the ground, he is capable of avoiding or warding off impending contact of an opponent, tucking the ball away, turning up field, or taking additional steps
01/19/2018 - 10:22am Really? How many Buckeye fans

Really? How many Buckeye fans are you around regularly. I was raised in Columbus and every other member of my family are Buckeye fans....I hear this nonsense regularly.

01/19/2018 - 10:03am I am guessing...

you have never played/watched baseball.



Edit: Either you edited that, or I didn't read to the end.

01/18/2018 - 9:36pm Exactly

I mean, they enact laws that eliminate 1 letter of the alphabet for 1 week a year, and they won't even say Michigan, but it is not a rivalry.

01/17/2018 - 9:41am I hear this a lot,

but how do you get points if you can't post?

01/09/2018 - 10:43am Interesting....

How about from Florida to Michigan?

01/05/2018 - 12:30am +1

This was the first thing I thought of after I read Lancer's comment.

01/03/2018 - 2:42pm There were a few zone

There were a few zone reads...the one I recall specifically he rode for a while before giving it. I think our QBs may have pulled on a zone read once this year....I believe it was against Ohio State.

12/04/2017 - 10:41am If you are wondering....

Tickets on ticketmaster last night were $80 for the upperdeck, $170 for club level. I have been to a couple games at Raymond james and sat in the upper deck at mid-field and found them to be good. I also watched a USF game from the endzone seats for 1 games and the view was not good, unless the action was on your half of the field.

I got 2 tickets in section 310 right at mid-field, with fees it was $182. I am not sure how that compares to the packages that are being offered, but I thought I'd share.

09/27/2017 - 7:43am I don't know,

to me it looks like from one of the replay angles that the player locks his vision onto Speight on the ground, then proceeded to bellyflop onto Speight with all his weight. He did not have that much weight going forward. When I saw it live I felt it was late, obviously Angelique thought it was a late hit when she asked Harbaugh about it in the post-game press conference. It was a dirty play. I'm not sure I agree with the sentiments that he was attempting a head to head blow, as a fellow fat guy, I think his intent was to land on him with all his weight.

09/26/2017 - 10:34am Well...

If I Michigan staff member did the walkthrough on July 18, and Purdue uses portable AC in the summer months and removes them in the fall, there was probably AC in the lockerroom in July. 

09/25/2017 - 10:47am yeah...

and receivers need to leave some room between themselves and the sideline to adjust to the pass. When they arr running vertical pass routes so close to the sideline, the throw has to be perfect. Run it 1/3 of the way from numbers to the sideline and give the QB room for error to the outside. When you are tight to the sideline, the QB cannot miss inside and so is more apt to error to the outside. 

09/23/2017 - 9:35pm Nordin

Are you sure that wasn't Quinn Nordin?


Edit: Apparently I should read through the comments before posting. I am way late to the party, I'll show myself out now!

09/23/2017 - 8:45pm Higdon

10 carries for 31 yards, 1 rec 11 yards and a lost fumble, and a general inability to assist with the pass rush that led directly to a sack. We hear all about his speed and burst, if he had shown it on the reception it would have been a chunk play, instead he had the ball knocked out from behind.

I would not categorize that a good game.

09/23/2017 - 7:07pm maybe you are beginning to

maybe you are beginning to see a team take on the angry out of control personality they are seeing from there coaches. 2 ejections and the hit that took Speight out should have been flagged as well.

09/23/2017 - 6:54pm Jeff Brohm

is quickly becoming my favorite coach to hate.

They went back to power on that drive.

Make him coach the Indianapolis Colts next year?

09/15/2017 - 5:23am Read Option

I picked up the hold against Bush live on that read option (6:12), but the defender just inside of Bush, Furbush, gets held as well....holy cow were those refs bad. Bush gets pushed down and pulled away from the gap and the Center puts a big bear hug on Furbush. That is 2 at the point of attack.

09/10/2017 - 11:49am Charley

After crossing Cuba gained intensity from 110MPH to 145 in 3 hours....I believe the pressure in Irma is dropping once again which indicates strengthening. The low-lying keys are not going to slow this thing down and it is into the Gulf now with 86 to 88 degree waters. Storm is projected to skim Cape Coral and head into Charlotte Harbor. I would expect it to hit as a Category 4 storm. Intensity predictions have not improved in over 25 years, so..... btw, all the experts were so wrong on Charley that people evacuated right into its path.

09/10/2017 - 11:34am Did you miss the game? We

Did you miss the game? We were abler to get it, I believe on ABC26.

09/10/2017 - 11:31am North Port

North Port here, latest 11 AM advisory has adjusted storm path about a mile from my house. According to the weather channel app, the storm will skirt Cape Coral and go up Charlotte Harbor as Charley did only in a more northwardly track. Stay safe.....We have our master closet set up as our safe room.

08/25/2017 - 1:06pm Jay

Riemersma.....not Todd, and he switched to TE after a rotator cuff injury IIRC.

He was doing camps in FL through his Who Next organization.

05/06/2017 - 10:56pm Not a Sprague fan myself.

Not a Sprague fan myself. Peacock just got caught texting a junior at North Port. He is placing blame on the North Port student for contacting him.... even though he said he originally thought the North Port coaches put the kid up to it. Makes very little sense to me. This is the second time they have been fined by FHSAA for messaging players at North Port High. The first time he did it on the day the FHSAA investigator was on campus. He was fined 10K and suspended for Sping football this time. 


05/06/2017 - 10:16pm Yeah....we can talk all day

Yeah....we can talk all day about how they get fined for recruiting.

05/06/2017 - 10:15pm Venice makes a killing

Venice makes a killing recruiting from North Port. The northern boundaries for Venice is not where the athletes are coming from.

Laurel kids always went to Venice.

Edit: Karan also lived in North Port as did Robert Glinton, who was a starting running back for Riverview about 8 years ago.

If she is trying to hold his legs in an attempt to prevent him from leaving, that is false imprisonment. 


Seriously though, thanks for being our moral compass.

03/21/2017 - 1:22pm I'll let the system take care

I'll let the system take care of it....hopefully this doesn't cost Lewis much if he's innocent. If he is guilty... he deserves what he gets (and more...probably). 

03/21/2017 - 1:07pm I'm with you

I'm with you XtraMelanin...

When I hear the two stories and attempt to construct the pieces, his story seems to fit with hers, she simply tells hers to make him appear guilty of something he didn't actually do. 

He's sleeping and she comes in and begins to nag him about lights being on because she pays the electric bill. He flips the blankets off and she gets hit by a pillow. He goes to the closet and emphatically takes his clothes off the hanger (Seriously, he punched a closet door multiple times and didn't do any damage?) He's holding the door closed as she is trying to force her way in to continue to get in his face and scream at him. The door opens and she hits him in the face loosing her balance and falls (or is helped to fall) to the ground. As Lewis attempts to leave she grabs his legs and is "dragged across the floor" as he walks. At some point he steps on her hair. Still not letting go, he attempts to push her down off his legs by her neck (when summarizing her complaint articles says neck, when officer asked Lewis about it he said throat...unclear whether it was the neck or throat) until she lets go. At that point Lewis leaves the residence.

03/03/2017 - 2:33pm Yeah, but Dunn split carries

Yeah, but Dunn split carries with Mike Alstott while at Tampa Bay, at Atlanta he increased his carries by 10 - 20%

03/03/2017 - 10:43am There are many variables

There are many variables involved in blocking, but yes, the bench press does translate onto the field, expecially in a drive block situation where you are engaged with quads and glutes with your hands to the chest not extended and in somewhat of a stalemate..... the bench press can give you the burst and push you need to get the defender moving backward. This is why having the inside hand placement as an OL is crucial.

03/03/2017 - 10:30am Stiff arm can be beneficial,

Stiff arm can be beneficial, though I was not beuing serious when I threw that out. As far as pectorals, when you take a shot to the chest, shoulder pads only take the sharpness of the blow away, you are still getting a massive amount of energy transferred and the more muscle mass you have covering your rib cage, the better. Backs also take shots to upper arms and shoulders under the pads so the mass is beneficial and leads to longevity, I would guess.

You are the professional in this area and I understand what you are saying, that the test itself is not measuring a skill that is translated on the field. I would imagine that upper body mass is beneficial for a running back's ability to take the collective number of shots they are exposed to.

03/03/2017 - 9:47am Stiff arm? Also, RBs take

Stiff arm? Also, RBs take abuse and muscle mass helps to absorb some of those collisions. Other than that, I got nothing.
