Not sure about the white but call me weird, I like the "Angry Brutus" helmet.
Easiest "pick" of the week was Iowa after giving Kirk an extension. Talk for years had been how Iowa was "trapped" in the contract with Ferentz and how they could not fire him etc. Then he has 1 good year and gets more years tacked on.
As far as Hazell goes - I find it mildly entertaining to think that two former Purdue quarterbacks are starting in the SEC this weekend.
Loved the comment about our D comparing it to Texas in 2005. Yeah, it is basic and you still can't beat it.
Shame that home and home got cancelled.
Strike that last comment.
Betting a lot of wrestlers in the B1G are looking to change weight classes. Amazing run by Kyle. Not sure what I was doing at his age but I will bet it was nothing compared to this.
My "biggest" problem with it as well. Oh and I did not know they had sarcasm font until I read this about UM's O-Line
The line is an above-average group that's embraced Harbaugh's physicality
I guess my big issues were
1) The overrated tag on Kwon. I thought as a first year starter last year he was pretty darn good
2) The talk that no one on our OL was someone you worried about. Yes, Zeke was a phenom back but someone besides Decker had to be opening holes for him.
3) Compared to the write up on other schools (*cough* Alabama *cough* Michigan *cough*) they did not give our depth nearly enough credit. So as weak as the "smack" was it was emphasized because we were the first ones where there seemed to be any negatives.
Let's be honest. If "Harry Potter" is a bit before his time (with the last book being published in 2007), then maybe the original poster is just being a typical teenager :)
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...
Maybe after a multi-title run as WWE tag team champs forming half of a new LoD.
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
The deal shifts Wilson from the third-lowest paid coach in the Big Ten to its seventh-highest.
I see what you did there. So basically he moves up 2 spots.
Finally the Fighting Armadillos have a good head coach to replace Ed Gennero
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.
IIRC this should be a time run off since Arky does not have any timeouts left
Toledo for a safety...and now they get to do a real kickoff
It is now. Arky loses!!!!
