Yeah, not so sure Kiffin (or the Bama commenter) was presciently "calling" the touchdown, so much as just watching a wide open receiver run through the endzone.  I also called that play a touchdown for Bama when I was watching it live.  Just a great play by Bell to cut in and steal the points.

In the US major university system, the athletic department is essentially in charge of public relations.  Just like in other businesses, this is really a key aspect of the enterprise.  Of course the nice thing about the university is that the profit generated is basically only used to further research and education.  People who want(ed) to fire Gene Smith are just crazy, as the OSU athletic department has been exemplary in fulfilling their duties to the university under his guidance.

I actually clicked on your username to make sure that you didn't create it just to make this comment.

When you genuinely listen to "In the Air Tonight" it's just totally crazy that that song went pop.  Perhaps the most memorable drum line in pop music...

Tumbleweed Connection?  Just completely great, non-pop, Elton John.

I think going pro easily could be "thinking long-term."  He may be the best pro-prospect of the three, but realistically, Cardale could easily lose the QB battle next year and never start another game.

I was under the impression that they changed the rules this year and you are now able to push your own players forward.  Here's the new 2014 section on "Interfering for or Helping the Ball Carrier or Passer"

a. The ball carrier or passer may use his hand or arm to ward off or push opponents.
b. The ball carrier shall not grasp a teammate; and no other player of his team shall grasp, pull, or lift him to assist him in forward progress. 
c. Teammates of the ball carrier or passer may interfere for him by blocking but shall not use interlocked interference by grasping or encircling one another in any manner while contacting an opponent.

I think that there used to be language in there (section b) about pushing, but it got removed.

I like how they repeatedly bemoan the fact that they could have beat Oregon, and think they somehow blew the Sugar Bowl.  Part I is correct, but seriously, we were simply the better team in Sugar Bowl.  We win the best of 3 series against Bama.
