Would that make you "dirty"?
It would have been great if this was the year an OSU coach won the COY over the Iowa guy.
I doubt even OJ's legal fees were $15MM. If so, justice is too expensive.
Looking at your list of events, players deciding a coach's fate, saying he "appeared" drunk (how about proof?), and I'm sure he isn't the first to be drunk at a booster event - seems like you're making his case.
Further, wasn't USC the school with the Rhodes Scholar athletic director that embarrassed them with an on-field bout with an official? If so, did he appear drunk? Did he show professionalism? Seems like a double standard.
I believe the research says that addictive behaviors are innate. That's why some folks can drink all the time and others develop addictions with similar usage levels. That's also why it is considered a disease and what probably is the argument that makes this a case.
Also, if he wins $30MM, I'm not sure he would need to coach again.
Thank goodness you're here to tell us what is and isn't true. How about these truths: Bama, OU, AND MSU's losses were worse than ours.
Your opinion about whether the playoff should seemingly be based on quality wins is just that - your opinion. I choose to base it on the quality of losses when each team has a single loss. Also, the SEC and BIG12 were not very strong - I don't care how many 8 win teams anyone beat.
I'll be more than happy to continue to address your delusions of grandeur if need be. Learning the difference between opinion and fact would be a great start for your development.
I can't say I agree with the conference championship point. So if Iowa had two losses this year but beat MSU do you think Iowa should have been in over us? The conference champ argument begins to break down when you look at the divisional strength. Both the SEC and B10 had fairly major differences between the divisions this year and showed the flaws in that position.
I tend to agree, but the argument could easily be made that our record is just as good if not better than 2 of the 4 that are in (looking at you Bama and OU). That's why this is a problem. Frankly, our record is probably even better than MSU considering they needed a miracle against UM and only led against us for less than a second.
The decisions now are mired by recency bias. What could help, but of course will never happen, is if the committee only meets at the end of the year after all games are done and evaluate each team and record without a time stamp.
Not sure who DV'd, but I balanced it with an UV. Funny comment. Hopefully this was the wake up call he needed to get his multi-million dollar future back on track.
124 and a could of dust.
As did I. Upvotes all around!
Although I do secretly hope this thread elevates to Bucksfan changing his icon status. High hopes for sure.
Is this them getting their swag back?
Well said on #2. Our Brownies were three games over .500 at one point last year though (6-3, I think). Like most of the middling NFL teams, we are just one QB away from having a pretty good squad. Our division is murder, so that doesn't help either.
I think youre right on this forecast. There is a lot of land between Florida and Virginia. May be some showers, but the storm will weaken significantly once it gets through the SC/NC Piedmont and hits the mountains/highlands.
I would love to have seen concussion info from the old leather helmet days.
I think these new helmets have force suppression components where the impact is spread. Kinda like a bed of nails versus a single nail analogy.
Fair enough, not everyone is cool with being part of a trial, but I assume that UL or some other group has provided some type of product testing with data that at least points to the new helmets as a better alternative. That would be enough for me.
Why would anyone in their right mind wear anything other than the helmet built to help avoid concussions??? Further, why wouldn't the coaches mandate it?
Looking at his combine numbers, it says Philly ran a 4.51 40. I'm a fan of his, but not even in the ballpark as Teddy. Granted, we are talking about .2 of a second, but you know what I mean. haha
Watched a game at Strike City a few years back. It was one of our first night games in the Urban era (Nebraska, I think). The place was rocking. Definitely a helluva spot to catch a game. Would love something just like it south of town.
Cam was a great fantasy pick up his rookie year, but has never seemed to break through to a "good" QB in my eyes. Luckily for him and a bunch of others (looking at you Dalton), mediocre play at that position puts 9 figures in the bank.
I'm down here in the south burbs in Ballantyne.
It's not cheap to eat there, but having drinks at Fahrenheit is a good time (It's good enough where I now know how to spell fahrenheit). Great view of the skyline (although nothing compared to Chicago, I'm sure).
I live here in Charlotte and I'm becoming a little bit of a fan. The only reason I'm not a bigger fan is Cam. I just don't like him. Every time he did his whole first down "dance" against my Browns last year I wanted to vomit in my mouth.
I love that Philly is doing nice things here - although what's this talk that he is faster than Ginn?? They actually say that from time to time on the local news. It's crazy talk.
For realz! Major game changer there. Someone commented how that kid is still pads-catching in the scrimmage video. Infuriating.
Gene is pretty damn successful in his own right and even he looks like he is learning a ton from Urban's speech in the screen grab. His hair appears to be blown back (or what's left of it).
