The moments that trigger court\field rushes have nothing to do with those fans. Its taking the moment away from the players by interjecting yourselves (as fans) into something you watched, not participated in. Rushes are stupid.
So you are suggesting the league force players to only play for certain teams for a pre determined amount of money with no way of going from one job to another-like many of us common folk can. So if you are the best at a certain position you can't get paid like one if the area in which you live or are from isn't as affluent as one where someone else does your job? So what you are essentially saying is "Screw the players".
Cardale looks like a linebacker playing catch with a QB in that picture....
Good news for Ray...since this story has clearly caused a lot of hype for him its pretty obvious that he'll be fading away shortly. So the ol "Your honor, my client has vanished" defense might still be in the cards.
Sweet double comment bro.
Few things make me happier about college football than knowing Bert is closer to the end than the beginning of his head coaching career.

Someone is going to talk themselves out of Hyde in the first because he's probably going to run a bad 40 time by RB standards. He's got a knack for the endzone, is a pretty good blocker, runs hard and has enough 'make ya miss' to be really effective. Poor man's Eddie Lacy. Someone will grab in the late second, early third and be really pleased.
I can probably make some room for DJ at the table if he wants it.
One down, one to go. See this guy out of the front row of football games and I'll be happy.
Its not cool. Its lame.
What is a UC?
I think it is Latin for a very old wooden ship.
QB. The amount of information that needs to be effortlessly processed to play the spot at a high level is without equal to any other spot on the field. They are all difficult to play, one might argue corner since there are so many rules stacked against the spot, but at the end of the day, no one has more to learn than a QB.
There are three beers I've come across this winter that have really kept me warm during a Chicago winter unlike anything I've ever seen. Deschutes makes a Black Butte Porter and Obsidian Stout that are must tries for the dark beer enthusiast. Two Brothers North Wind Imperial Stout is hands down the best dark beer I've ever had. Its a little pricey at $11\6 but it packs a punch with %8.5 abv. Deschutes makes another dark Imperial called The Abyss that to date I have yet to locate. I started my foray into the dark beer world with Deschutes and have found myself looking for darker and darker beers. The Abyss is a Russian Imperial, which according to my cursory reading of beer styles is about as dark as dark gets but Deschutes doesn't 'mass' produce it and supposedly is better as it ages.
I'm all for an IPA anytime of the year, and Deschutes (seeing a trend) makes a great one. Their Inversion IPA is really good. They make a great 12 pack sampler, providing 3 of 4 different kinds of beers. I prefer more variety and they offer that in their 12. I'd highly recommend Inversion to anyone looking to branch out or expand their existing craft beer palate.
Two Brothers is a Chicago based Micro, if you come across it, anything they make is worth it. Kane and Abel and North Wind are so good it should be criminal.
I feel sort of bad. My roots will always be in the yellow flavored water world of Coors and Miller but have recently found myself struggling to choke them down at family parties, ball games, etc. Sam Adams has even lost its flavor for me and I think I drank all of the Sams in Boston at some point in my life. I've never been this type but I've gone full blown beer snob in the last year. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot to be said about a 24 ounce mug of something light and cold but I can't ever turn away from a craft beer.
That doesn't really answer my question. I learned a lot through my collegiate experience that has had a direct impact on my career and community involvement. I didn't need a fraternity to teach me things I learned on my own.
Do you think this kind of sorting, classifying and figuring out who is where on the totem pole of life is strictly a Greek thing?
I do not. Which is sort of my point. I thought the idea is that the Greek system makes better men and women out of the people who pay to sign up. You're saying its normal so its ok that it occurs in a structured, regimented fashion.
We "bleed scarlet and grey." We "hate TSUN." We tell ourselves that SEC schools are academically inferior and they are cheaters. Or how superior OSU football is to some other BIG teams. I could go on. How is that different?
I didn't have to pay monthly or yearly fees to be an Ohio State fan.
And no, you can't judge Greek life fairly
So if my opinion is different than yours, its wrong. How very Greek of you.
And if she wants to call her sorority friends who she became very close to as her sisters, then why the hell should that bother you? Why do you care?
It doesn't bother me. The idea of a system designed on exclusionary practices is the problem. I don't like you because you either didn't accept our bid or didn't get one. If you mean to tell me that all the fraternity and sorority besties in the whole wide world out there would have been friends minus the Greek system, I'll back my stance down. People in those organizations liked each other because sometimes they had to.
Was it all bad? Of course not. AXD had a really cool fundraiser that went to a really good cause. There is nothing wrong with the good that they did or do. But that doesn't outweigh the underlying idea that it is a system built upon being told no to make it popular. It is an easy fall back "You aren't XXX material". Which ultimately means-you are either too ugly, fat, poor, or stupid in our eyes to join.
Before the arrogant come to say this sounds like sour grapes, check yourself. I neither applied to or ever showed interest in any Greek system at OSU. My thoughts about the topic are strictly based on what I saw for 3.5 years.
How has joining a fraternity made you a better person after college?
I dated a girl who was a very active member, and eventual president of Alpha Xi Delta-The sorority that actually resides right next to the Delta Gamma house. As a result, I was deeply involved in the Greek system (nearly the Fuzzy man of the year two years in a row). I found the whole thing to be pretty hypocritical. Most people who went Greek are quick to point out the good that they do, as well as the people who were Greek who went on to bigger and better things. Sure, plenty of CEO types were Greek. That is establishing a causual relationship between the two things (being Greek, then being a CEO) that isn't fair, just, or true. I also saw first hand how catty both guys and girls were. Sure you were all in the system doing great things but my lord, bring up the wrong three letter combination and a verbal war of Bloods and Crypts proportions would ensue. There was the fat sorority, the poor one, the slutty one, the ugly one, the whatever one. The cool fraternity, the laid back fraternity, the animal house fraternity (they all claimed this. None came close), the coke head fraternity, and so on. It was one gigantic stereotype. I'm sure I'm offending some of the Greeks out here but I was close enough to it every weekend of my collegiate career (shame on me) that I feel I can judge it fairly. I worry that anyone who used the term brother or sister never really got to experience having a brother or sister-I get it when firemen or police or military folk say it...but Greeks? Come on.
Hard to turn crap into anything other than crap.
Joebot 2000 does not compute.....
Awww guys, Black Shoe Diaries still has a Buckeye crush! Here was their poll question.
What grade do you give the hire?
Ohio State sucks
A lot of brash talk from fans of a team that could have scored 5 more touchdowns and still lost to a team that "sucks".
If anyone ever did a movie about Lane Kiffin's life I think you may have found the actor. Well done.
Everything about the guy screams smarmy little nit wit but as coordinators go, he probably isn't awful. Some guys just need to be chiefs and some guys need to be Indians. The guy isn't a football nincompoop so in the right atmosphere he may be able to thrive.
I do worry about the State of Alabama's ability to sustain two egos the size of Kiffin and Saban's, however. There has to be some sort of environmental impact study before a hire is made to ensure the US doesn't actually collapse in on itself or the black hole the state will most certainly become.
Who has yet to play a snap of collegiate football. Are you a member of the "Anyone but Miller" club?
They really aren't. College coaches are always looking for the next big challenge. Meyer appears to have found his home and Saban his, but the desire to move is always on their mind.
Neither of them quit on a job halfway through the season, however.
