Plus their go-to-receiver Lockette (sp) dropped a TD pass...deja vu watching it a la Corey Smith.

Football is the most violent team sport in this country, and the risk of injury is high. That being said, injury (even serious) is possible in any sport that involves contact, whether it is intentional (football) or not (basketball). Football is the only team sport played at all ages in the USA that I know of which requires intentional, repetitive collisions at a high rate of speed. And the increased scrutiny of tackle football created by medical professionals, and amplified by the media, has probably over-hyped the risk. However, to say that the liklihood of incurring a serious head injury is no more likely in football than soccer, or some other "non-contact" sport is just false. 

I have a seven year old son, and he will not play tackle football. And yes, I am a hypocrite, because I love it, watch it, spend money on it, and so does my son. But protecting my son is the priority, and I believe there is too much unnecessary risk involved by playing football. Doesn't mean I'm right, and someone that let's there kid play is wrong, it's just a choice.

Hey maybe we can get Jayru Slamma Jamma in for an official now that he's available again...??

Besides that assclown, Cass is full of great players. It used to be scUM's "Glenville", now it is becoming our Glenville -North!

He needs more development to be an NFL QB, but he could prob get drafted as an athlete, kind of like D-Rob of TTUN has done. Hell, he may be the starting RB in Jacksonville soon. Hopefully Brax stays, develops some more so he can be drafted as a QB, and helps win us a title in the process...kind of like the plan we had for him this year.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

I can't decide if I want TTUN to clean house and hire competent people who will help re-establish some respectability, which in turn helps the B1G, or do I want the status quo so we can continue to beat the shit out of them...? I think I would prefer a more competitive TTUN squad. They'll still lose, so win-win!

Although I do enjoy a good clown show.

Still beat KSU 21-0 to boot, I'll take that deal.

Comment 17 Sep 2014

In all fairness, Hyde did not have the ball on that play. If he had, well then....(please endless posts regarding this speculation).

Regardless, I completely agree with you, and anyone else here, that believes Samuel is a special player. Of course, the debates regarding how he will be used within the offense will continue....

Comment 17 Sep 2014

Just curious, but how do you know so much about football, in terms of how plays develop, correct personnel, etc.? Are you a player and/or coach? I never played organized football (or coached for that matter), so all of my observations are based upon 40 years of watching games, and trying to disseminate the good data from bad, as derived from the endless opinions expressed here, there, and everywhere.

Hopefully Todd Gurley keeps bulldozing the SEC, because Jameis Winston matching Archie Griffin's record would be an abomination.

It would be a legitimate travesty...Winston is horrendous. I propose we all pitch in and get this quote from DJ in a 30-second spot on every E$PN prime-time telecast for the rest of the season. I got 5 on it...let's go.

I drank heavily from the kool-aid fountain prior to the season, and even after the Navy game. But when the pitcher was smashed into a million pieces after VT, I still had hope for this team to have a successful season. Probably not a championship season, since even if we run the table being part of the Stink 10 is going to sink us anyway, but a solid building-block season. Kent State did nothing to indicate this team can handle superior competition (yet), but it did give us a great glimpse of things to come. I re-watched the Kent State game last night, since I attended it live on Saturday and missed the 4th quarter, and man some of those plays by the younger guys were awesome. So much speed. 

So, now I can enjoy the rest of the season with the appropriate perspective, and everything from now until January is gravy.

My sister-in-law has a dog named Rusty, and it's the first thing I say whenever I go over there....she loves it. 

She also has a daughter named Grace, get the picture. I'm sure she is glad they live in Centerville and I live in Columbus!

Definitely more than pleased thus far with his performance. He comes as advertised as a QB who understands the offense and shows great poise in the pocket. And he will become even better as the O-line gells and gives him the time he needs.

So there is where I'll leave it. Six touchdowns is impressive no matter who you play, it is definitely an eye-catching stat. However, he had time to make sandwich, take a quick nap, and send a few tweets by the time the KSU pass rush even got close. I am not trying to diminish his performance, but he (and the O-line) will need to step it up if he is going to break any records.
