Lol. I grew up on Miller Lane. My old house that my dad built has since been torn down in the "progress" of building all the chain restaurants. It was actually a nice little road in the 80s and early 90s. Since Decker is now gone, kinda bummed that it's not likely for another player from that area will be a buckeye for a few decades at least. Sadly, the most famous pro athlete to come out of that area was Clemons. Still hate that dude. Ask me if I hate him or Kobe more, I might be frozen in thought for a few days tantamount to my old 90s pentium 100mhz cpu booting up.

Laws are rules which must be followed or serve consequences, so no excuses for Troy, but there is also an argument that a single metric (.08, or whatever) isn't good enough to determine whether someone can successfully operate a mother vehicle. Living in Florida for a period, there are plenty of folks who are legally driving that are much more dangerous than someone who blows .08.  I'm not convinced that just because someone is over .08 that they are a danger to themselves or those around them on the road.

The jokes probably on us though. It's likely a $250 cashmere sweater bought right before a cool, breezy day and challenging round at Augusta National. Kinda like Spurrier got playing rights there for taking the USC job, I read Lou is a member there as of 2003.

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. 

Comment 06 Dec 2015

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. 

Comment 06 Dec 2015

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.  

Comment 31 Aug 2015

As did I.  Upvotes all around!  

Although I do secretly hope this thread elevates to Bucksfan changing his icon status. High hopes for sure. 

Comment 30 Aug 2015

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. 

Comment 24 Aug 2015

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. 

Comment 19 Aug 2015

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
