A year ago at these same meetings Nick Saban suggested up-tempo offenses increase the number of "exposures" players have to being hit, which might correlate to higher incidence of concussions.

Nick, if you're that concerned, you can reduce the number of "exposures," Alabama can can drop football completely...That would really reduce the number of concussions.

Not that anybody is a fan of the NCAA, but they are 'the level playing field' If your conference's rules are more stringent, then it is you that needs to fall in line, not everyone else. Maybe even step down to D3 so you don't have to worry about these things at all.

As a fellow Marionaire (MCH '81) it saddens me to read the first sentence of the Skully. But you're right, the scourge is everywhere.

Love the Mike Tyson quote: Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.

Such a good description of what sports represents...

Thanks, DJ!

Me too...Maybe we should race, or try a game of 1on1

I think with HBONOW, you have to have an Apple device. I have HBONOW and love it! HBOGO is good, but they don't always have the complete seasons...at least in my limited experience.

But if you have access to HBONOW, I agree - return the series and watch on-line

The thing I like best about GOT is that nobody is too good to be killed. I am only beginning season 3, but I like it. I tried watching it about 3 years ago, and thought following the names, places, and plots were too confusing - maybe I have matured...

If there was one post per day that we could up vote ad infinitum, this would be the one.

The title of the article says it all. It truly depends on which side of the fence we sit. I imagine that a vast majority of us break the law, or suffer some character flaw everyday. Whether it's speeding while driving, taking a pen from work, or not giving back the extra quarter we receive in our change. All, while trivial, point us in the wrong direction on the moral compass.

Cooper nailed it a few posts back when he said: 

For every "Coach Meyer is a scumbag!" comment I see, there is a commenter behind a computer seeking validation that he is a morally superior human being."

It's amazing how forgiving we all are when it comes to our own transgressions or those of our favorite team, and how quick we are to pass judgement on those with whom we don't see eye-to-eye.

What in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is a goin' on here?

More beans Mr. Taggert? 

    Mr. Taggert: I'd say you boys have had enough.

Mongo like candy

Mongo just pawn in chess game of life.

Why Bart, they said you was hung!

If the balls were deflated and the referees let the balls into the game, then whose fault is it? It's the responsibility of the refs to call it out, not the Patriots responsibility to make sure they're filled to the correct level.

I watched Clark throw to that guy five times in a row on that Vine, and the kid missed it every time....Also, Clark nailed that pass 10/10 times...
