I don't get the continuing controversy. Only in football (quarterback specifically) is it verboten to substitute to take advantage of two skill sets. The strategy Urban has devised seems like genius to me (maybe he's mensa!) Both quarterbacks have strengths and weaknesses. Why not devise a scheme to get the best of both into the game. If it wins games and drives the opposition to distraction, I'm all for it. I wish people would get off the Cardale or JT trains and get all aboard for a wild ride the next two months. Last year was a pleasant surprise when the Bucks came together late. This year can be even more satisfying because everybody hates us and the Bucks can do something that hasn't been done in a very long time.
Lots of people on this board talk a good game but don't seem to know much about actual football. Three shutouts in a row is pretty damn impressive at any level of football. SCUM has played a better schedule than the Buckeyes. The outhouse is a tough place to play at any time, let alone when _ichigan is playing well. Harbaugh is a maniac. He'll have that team thinking they can beat anyone. Doesn't matter if they beat Sparty next week, the Buckeyes are going to have all they can handle the end of November. Beware this team. I've seen SCUM ruin more great OSU seasons than I care to remember.
People that are incapable of carrying on a civil conversation about a controversial topic ( a comparatively innocuous offense in the overall scheme of life) are regulated or barred form participating on a simple website, but are still able to share their world view at the ballot box. Pretty scary.
At my age, Cracker Barrel is a treat. At my age, most anything is still a treat. Their fried chicken special on Sunday nights deserves a try too. Just like Mom used to make.
There is a Seinfeld episode that relate to everything that happens in life. Satire and humor are only really funny when they are based on a bit of truth. I wish I had a dollar for every time something has happened to me and I think of a Seinfeld that related. It's really a show about nothing but covers everything. Gold, Jerry, pure gold.
I guess I gotta stop reading 11W. Too many high class gourmets here for me. If you don't love Cracker Barrel's blueberry pancakes and "real maple syrup" (actually 1/2 corn syrup, but at least not fake brown sugar water like everywhere else), you just don't know good eating.
I still don't get the apparent differences in expectations of behavior between the Big 10 and Eastern Kentucky. Both are NCAA affiliates. Is Eastern KY thought to be some kind of half way house for miscreants? My point is if he's rehabilitated well enough for Eastern KY, why isn't that good enough for the Big10. And if rules really are rules, there are lots of people in high places all over this society that would be out of a job, at the least, or in jail at the worst.
The penalties that really drive me crazy are the ones that occur away from the action of the play or after the play is over. They are absolutely unnecessary and completely preventable. The throat slash Michael Thomas was called for after his touchdown is a perfect example. It shows a lack of self control and maturity and is something the coaches should be able to completely eliminate.
Quoting my favorite quarterback, people need to, R E L A X. Like many on 11W, I watch a ton of college football. As of the 5th week of he season, I haven't seen ANY team that seems to deserve a # 1 ranking. Every team out there has had a loss / bad game or closer call than expected. There is a lot of football to be played, we were spoiled by the last three games last year and expect history to be repeating itself. Life doesn't work that way. Whoever is playing best at the end of the year and hasn't had too many scares during the bulk of the season will be in the final four. Worrying about what people that get paid to talk are saying is a giant waste of time. Right now, I'd like to seen a big TBD listed by number one in the rankings.
If Noah Spence has the intestinal fortitude to change his behavior and turn his life around, I wonder why the Big Ten (and OSU) refused to give him the chance to do it here, rather than ship him and his problem off to Eastern Ky. It's almost like the Big is saying it's above such mundane things that happen to real people in real life. If you can't be perfect, you can't play here. Had it not been for Urban helping find him a new home, he'd have been thrown under the bus and maybe lost for good.
I'd like to know what game you're watching or what you're smoking. This is painful to watch.
I can't believe the hype and hundreds of comments a uniform change is getting. Wonder what would happen if there was something important to talk about?
I wonder if Buckeye Guy will change his costume to black for the big game. He seems like a bandwagon jumper to me.
Twitter is the root of all evil. There is no safety delay between thinking something inappropriate and saying it to the rest of the world.
Tom Herman (Mensa member): "Miss me yet??????"
I liked the way the threads were done before. Don't twitter and not interested in starting. Get off my lawn.
Here in Tampa . This damn BG -Maryland game is still on. I hate BTN.
How come Wisconsin gets to play all these SEC creampuffs?
I'm surprised Urban keeps them on the team at all if they have that attitude.
Ditto. I hope the Pack pick him up. The Browns never fail to disappoint. I really believe they are jinxed. Art Modell's ghost must be hanging around there somewhere.
Wonder who is in the other 5%?
Harley builds several liquid cooled bikes. 103 in3 and 110in3 touring bikes, a performance bike (v rod), and two entry level bikes (a 500 cc and a 750cc).
Just got back from a 16 day 7000 mile ride through 11 national parks and Sturgis with 3 other guys on Harleys. No mechanical issues at all. Lots of good motorcycles of all brands available out there. Important thing is to get something you are comfortable on and can afford, get good training and assume every car out there is driven by someone that may be texting and doesn't see you. Have fun, riding is a great sport. Been doing it in the dirt and on the road for 45 years.
Reminds me of the scene in "Blind Side" where Michael Oher's character is flagged for excessive blocking.
You need some new, smarter friends.
