Those contests are actually very bad for the field of design as you are essentially telling a bunch of people who have gone through those undergrad graphic design majors and completed them that their services are not valuable. So you just go super cheap on it and outsource it to a college student with a "prize" that is far below the market value for their services and only gets them the short lived recognition for designing it while doing your part to destroy the field in which they hope to one day have a job.
Good lord. give me a break. A guy's ability to throw three good passes in a spring game says absolutely nothing about how he would perform against a real live pass rush. As Urban Meyer has said regarding a spring game: "A bunch of winning going on, good effort by players, maybe some guys didn't play so great," Meyer said, "but that's OK. It's spring practice." So yea, it really does not matter unless you are showing no effort.
I don't think Joe Burrow looked bad, but I do know that he didnt take a snap against a first team defense all season. Here are joe burrow's stats against the 2nd team defenses he played: 22/28 78.6% completion, 3 tds (rush and pass), no picks, 8 yards an attempt, 58 rush yards, 169 qb rating.
Here are JT's against the first team defenses of those same teams, 100/147, 68% completion, 21 tds (rush and pass), 2 picks, 8.7 yards per attempt, 217 rush yards, 171 qb rating. All this shows you is that how you perform against the teams that ohio state kills is not an indicator of how you will do in a game against clemson or michigan, or penn state.
There is basically no pass rush in the spring game. Your teammates aren't trying to knock you out of the game. There is nothing on the line. The game is essentially meaningless. Its fine if you want the new coaches to enter with an open mind and see who wins the job, but saying that 2-3 throws in a spring game should determine who should be the starting qb at Ohio State is beyond my comprehension.
/s Wow. I had never realized spring game success guaranteed full season success. No wonder Taurian Washington just made his 6th consecutive pro bowl. /s
I was in the stadium and remember seeing Armstrong give the thumbs on the video board while being carted off and that the video board showed "Tommy Armstrong - Nebraska QB" under him while he jogged back onto the field. I was up in C-deck and im like 99% sure both of those things happened.
you add in sasha kaun to the kings and koufos to the cavs and the money works.

This line of thinking is pretty insane to me. We have figured out cures like chemo but they don't work all that well. But some people get chemo and never get cancer again! That is a cure.
Also of note, that hack by iggy would have been his 6th and draymond's two fouls on the tip would have been his 5th and 7th. Great officiating!
Klay Thompson had a career game for the Warriors on Sunday and Steph had 19 points and they still lost. They splash brothers had 4-6 more points than their 14-15 postseason average on Sunday (I did the math yesterday and don't remember the numbers). This "steph didn't play well" narrative is so busted by everyone forgetting klay Thompson had a career night.
Edit: I see great minds think alike
I was at the pickerington central moeller game on Saturday and two players were light years better than everybody else: jake hausmann and Davon Hamilton. Hamilton consistently blew up guys on the moeller line and wreaked havoc in moeller's backfield. Without him and some excellent pint (edit:punt) returning, pick central would have lost that game by about 20
And here is the response I posted to you earlier "When looking at the study above that jackfu cited to show that budgets are demonstrably false is not a study on athletic departments as a whole but only revenue generating sports. It notes specifically that there is money if you reduce the salaries of coaches and stop renovating facilities. In this hypothetical scenario where revenue generating athletes are paid, athletic departments will have to make a decision, kept paying your coaches and upgrading your facilities to keep your revenue generating sports strong or cut your men's and women's rowing teams." Further, the fact that some analyst said so in a report to help support a lawsuit doesn't really mean a lot. I know from first hand experience that you can get a lot of people with good credentials to write whatever you want for lawsuits. It does not mean its the truth.
I don't think people are concern trolling about the fans of rowing. They (I?) are just saying that it is a possible or likely consequence that a bunch of other student athletes will lose scholarships. If you are okay with that I can't disagree but it's hard to act like it won't happen.

Whether or not you need to pay the participants in lacrosse rowing wrestling etc, it would not make financial sense to keep those programs around at the expense of weakening your revenue generating sports. To stay competitive when every school is allowed to pay a player the same maximum amount, coaches and facilities will be the selling points just as they are now.
I believe this is the concern people have with paying football players and basketball players. It is nice to imagine a world where you would just cut the football coaches salary to pay for the rowing team, but when the coach leaves and the players won't come to support your only two revenue streams you will lose all financial stability.
Because they didnt lose a single game when he played quarterback for the team. he didn't miss a single B1G game, and his statistics are likely better than any other quarterback in the league.
Yea I was gonna say the same thing. Terrelle is still the starter and he took the first team walk through but he is a bit banged up
I was bothered by the fact that the announcers were giving DAT crap for smiling on the sidelines when the game wasnt over. Meanwhile, praising Huff for crying when they still had a chance. It aint over till its over (or you are down 30 to Bama).
What made their statements last night even more absurd was that they were saying this with 5-6 minutes left in the game. I didnt listen to them after the game ended and Stanford didnt close very well.
DO YOU SMELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL WHAT THE VRABO.....................................IS COOKING?
Four words: Violation of team rules.
So leading running back and not leading rusher, a minor error. And yes, Hall was the starter last season before he tore his foot.
Sathey: you said
If I were Urban Meyer I would make it mandatory that my players do not leave their homes (apartment, dorm, house) unless its for football, family, or school! For the whole time they are at OSU! No exceptions!
That is not a curfew, that is prison. While I do not agree with a curfew either, you certainly advocated something beyond what the OP stated.
There is no way Roby's arrest for misdemeanor battery costs him millions if he plays well. A misdemeanor assault on a bouncer is not going to change his draft position unless there is more to this story than punching a bouncer.
