  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.

Good points Ethos, but I think everyone here bashing the NCAA is potentially considering other recent examples in addition to OSU and PSU.  Namely, Miami who had a booster pay for abortions and hookers - yet nothing happened to Miami.  And rape at FSU - nothing.  I'm not saying I know all there is to know about all of these situations, but the NCAA is horridly inconsistent AT BEST. 

I want to join you and say "let's wait and see what happens here" - but the NCAA has a way of letting these things drag out - perhaps purposefully - and after a while many will just forget or care less after 2 years go by. 

But I do appreciate your sentiment of waiting and seeing what happens.  Maybe swift justice will come to Baylor and Art Briles, and any involved.

Can't believe how dumb it was for Nkemdiche to come out and say he wanted a panther.  NFL teams will really doubt his intelligence.  What he really needs is a good financial planner to advise him in times like this.  OR...why not both??

Yeh, Rosy's rebuttal just kept going on and on!  It's like, we get it already  - your opinions differ from that of the OP.

With an offense perhaps still trying to find its stride and its identity, and with Chris Ash at Rutgers, I don't see us putting up 56 against them.  Would love to be wrong, though.

I was as frustrated as anyone with Beck, Warriner, Meyer, and/or whoever was to blame for the stagnant offense last year, but after the Michigan and ND games, I'm optimistic about 2016 and willing to give Beck a chance.

I think this is spot on.  Big 'IF's, but if our Oline stays decent with new starters (and I think it will), and if our many new receivers can make some plays, this offense could be very dynamic.

I did find something.  Looks like there may be a cost though ("tickets")?

I'm liking this too, Linga.  We have lots of needs, so we need lots of picks.  And we only dropped 6 spots, so we can still make a "splash" pick there.

Cool story.  Thanks for sharing.  Now make sure the hotel shuttle is late and he misses his flight home.  And if he is driving, let's see some damaged tires.
