  • SPORTS MOMENT: OSU v Washington. Night game in the 'Shoe. Sat in 24C and watched Big Daddy crush UW with my father.

    Close second is having my 4 year old son come up to me and, in an effort to have me get ready to go somewhere, tell me I needed a bath because "you stick like Michigan"

Of the coaches you mentioned I think my top two would be Marshall or Altman.  Bennett, Painter, and the rest do not do anything for me.  Marshall players seem to love playing for him and he has an exciting style.  Altman is the same but I think if they want to keep him Oregon will find the money <sarcasm> somewhere </sarcasm>

As a parent whose son plays Lacrosse I can say that I am happy he chose this sport over some of the others.  At the youth levels there simply isn't the level of contact you get with football or hockey and they are incapable of throwing the ball hard enough for it to be a problem.  Plus they wear more pads on the upper body than your typical football player. 

I am not deluding myself but considering I have seen more concussions in soccer - hard ball, kick to the side of the head etc - I am happy with Lacrosse from a "fun sport, relatively safe" perspective.

Now looking at the incidence of drug use among Lacrosse players and I have a bigger worry but...

Mattison has nothing to do with it.  He was DC under Hoke.  We get to see their third DC in three years now.  Bucks up BIG

Not a huge deal unless (like me) you are a VR kind of person, but XBox has been working with Oculus - the manufacturer of the Rift VR Headset.  The word is that when Rift is released early next year you will be able to play all XBox One games in VR.  Yes, Sony has their own VR headset but it is much further out on release dates.

My understanding is the RIFT will basically project out to about a 70" television set floating in front of you enabling game play when someone else is watching TV...

I understand Cardale is the starter, and if I see him in a bar I am taking care of his tab...but I think JT is the better starter for THIS team.  We do not have the WRs right now to take advantage of the long ball that Cardale can throw.  JT seems to make decisions quicker and his ability to run frees up Zeke and the play action.

Squeaky wheel gets the grease.  I know my bosses used to always make sure the complainers were taken care of first just so we could have some peace and quiet.  The people that do their jobs don't complain if something is not right or they do not get the best seat...they make it work.

So according to what I read we signed 6 OL this year...and 5 last year.  I remember years under Boll-rus that we did not have 10 linemen total, much less 11 F/S.  Is our plan to just play one line for a quarter, then roll out the starters and grind down the opponents?  Not that I have a problem with this plan mind you.
