It is if you're a Mensa candidate.
So wait, Billy Price did the RIGHT thing? Someone on the offensive line did their job? But I thought Warriner was an idiot, a horrible coach, and the offensive line was awful?!
So you're saying the sky isn't falling?!
If this is the kind of garbage that I'm going to be reading here, 11W isn't quite the blog that I thought it was:
"Listen, I did sex for a couple glorious minutes in college, and I consumed enough mind-altering substances to incapacitate a baby rhinoceros"
You were better before your head got too big and you thought people cared about your how many words you could use to make mildly humorous opinions.
Keep in mind the "research" written to back up claims by the Training Mask company comes from this guy (copied and pasted directly from their website)... he used to be listed as a PhD in sociology, but now its Math/Physics.... so that's weird. Also that it's "accepted" in canada and the UK. What the hell does that mean?

They are a fad, much like the "perfect pushup" which you also see in gyms run by highly regarded trainers. A lot of the 'research' done by people who back up these training masks are done by people with PhDs (but not medical doctors) or "fitness celebrities."
Hell, the 'training mask' company had their "research" be written by a total clown (I think he had a PhD in Political Science). It was so much hokum that they actually had a "these claims have not been substantiated" all over their research page in little text.
Elevation masks do NOT simulate actual elevation, which is useful for endurance athletes. True elevation training increases red cell count (oxygen transport) among other things as your body adjusts to the hemoglobin transport curve.
Despite being called an 'elevation trainer' the mask is not. It is a hypoxic trainer.
What the masks will do is restrict airflow, thus making your lungs work harder. The actual effect on VO2 max or anything is basically nil, but it does help strengthen your diaphragm which WILL improve your ability to suck air. They will enforce and reinforce the 'breathing' muscles (scalenes, intercostals, abdominals, etc.) which allows an athlete to maintain a higher breathing frequency for a longer amount of time. Unfortunately it is also likely to increase skeletal muscle fatigue because the body is prioritizing the breathing muscles.
Net, it's a fad.
I see what you did there... and I love it!
Go pack Go.
Richard Sherman needs to take notes from Michael Bennett
Good god. With this much bitching and complaining you'd think we were losing to sienna or something.
Apparently a win isn't a win, unless it's a big win... and someone said this team will "only get to the sweet 16." ONLY? God. This fanbase has become overly spoiled by Matta and Meyer.
1) helmet stickers totally are proof of how awesome you are... NOT.
2) you got downvoted to hell cuz your thoughts were beyond off base. had you written your previous works of insanity in similar style to what's above, it would have been a bit more mild in reception.
You might want go back and learn the definition of irony.
Didn't and couldn't are two entirely different contractions... but apparently you thrive on making false comparisons that hold no merit. Nice try though.
Way too long, didn't read.
Going by the headline you are either sarcastic, or a total and utter moron.
Gee: Raised BILLIONS for the university.
Gee: Tounge and cheek humor that harms no one.
Paterno: Could barely make a coherent statement.
Gee: Old man.
Paterno: Old man who covered for pedophiles.
As long as he keeps bringing in the bacon, raising academic standards, spending more time glad handing with the students than anyone ever, and BRINGING IN THE BACON, his job will be secure until he decides to leave.
Off the ledge? well how about the past Michigan game.
pretty sure that's all the talk off the ledge you need. that was year 1 of the offense that mattison knew 'intimately.' year 2 is going to be even faster, stronger, and harder.
Matta is the current ceiling in coaches we can attract? And how many other b10 coaches have as much success as Matta?
Ignorant statement is ignorant.
Going to miles better than Clinton when I graduated. Only guy I've ever seen speak publicly that got a standing ovation at the start and a slow clap with crickets at the end. It was painful.
He used the word there (or their) 5x within a once sentence, and rambled like an old drunk. Whomever he got to do his post-presidency speeches may have phoned that one in.
Then Archie came back to talk again and all was right in the world.
Holy crap bridgewater sounds like mike tyson.
Desmond Howard shouldn't be allowed in the Heisman House... his bits are always boarderline creepy.
Ross is Boss, and I'm lovin' it.
Alot of people knocked Matta for keeping him on the bench, but now when the kid has had time behind the scenes to develop, he is throwing down. Maybe he could have come out a hair earlier, but that's always hindsight and based on information only seen during games and never practice.
Matta made the right call, and boy can that man develop talent.
A good, not great, coach? Man either your shit doesn't stick or you're just plain ignornant.
All time at Ohio State 222-65. 78% win rate. That's just 'good'?
Coach K - who is fairly unanimously a great coach, has a 79% win rate.
So that 1% is the difference between good and great?
NCAA tourny 6 out of his 8 years.
NCAA Runner Up (1x)
NCAA Final 4 (1x)
Sweet 16 (2x)
Yeah. That's just a 'good' coach.
who's the jackass in the bottom right of the headline picture?
Everyone else seem's amped, but he's busy taking the day off...
So he upgraded?
How is Ryan Damn Shaziers amazing touchdown block NOT on the top five.
Dated two of the girls in that picture.
Glad to know it still makes the runs around the internet.
