People posted it 30 minutes after the injury came out.

I don't care if you call it insensitive, callous or whatever, it was just classless.

Love the imperial death march - played by the TBDBITL.  

Unfortunately it would necessitate having black uniforms.

He went to Fork Union so it's hard to say, but lets say he's not... the point is still valid.

I have no worries about the WR group.  Hell how many WR groups in the country are better than Braxton, Thomas, Gibson, Campbell and Samuel (H)?

I don't think the fines are in lieu of suspending players, I think it's in lieu of extra running etc.  I don't fault him for using the tactic for any reason other than I don't think it will be effective.  Holding a coach's salary against him is juvenile.  Our culture has gone from celebrating wealth to shaming it which is counter productive imo.

If we did hang 70 on them they would all lose their checks!

That should be a good game.  I'm going to the Florida - Florida State game.  A friend of mine has a "Gameday House" in Gainesville.

Also going to Delaware vs. Albany, Michigan Michigan State and possibly a Texas game.  I'm trying to cut back this year but I haven't been very successful.

Hov - good spin on this.  I suspect you are right.  If the guy is living next to the restaurant I imagine there is a history here.  It's easy to criticize when you hear one side of the story but I suspect there is more.

The same thing happened at UMD last year and I bought season tickets.

They had a great home schedule with WVU, Iowa, MSU and OSU at home.

Selling the tickets to the other games was almost fruitless other than MSU, Iowa and WVU.  JMU vs. UMD in the first game were selling for $2 or so.

I've never really noticed how much the H blocks, but based on how much the running backs and WRs block I think that's going to be an issue.  Braxton has probably never blocked in his life since the ball has almost always been in his hands.

Trying to block corners and safeties in the open field is very hard.  Trying to block fat Alabama linebackers at the end of the line isn't too hard according to Evan Spencer.

This is work etiquette 101.  It's up there with not groping people or dropping N-Bombs in the office.  My parents told me this before my first job and I've never really let loose with colleagues at a work function.  Every year after the Christmas party there was a list of people who flew over the handlebars and lost their job.

He hasn't really ever been "off to the races".  I thought he would have been but I've seen some here call him a "defender seeking missile" on punt returns.

He made some Devin-esq catches against VT and MSU if I recall.  He also has track speed, so this kind of makes sense to me.

I kind of like what he said.  He basically said he wants to learn and he wants help vs. bashing.  Not sure who is doing the bashing.

Besides his d-coordinator is Muschamp and I'm definitely not giving him the benefit of the doubt.

I don't disagree but being excited to see somebody play doesn't mean you want them to win a job over somebody who is better.

Don't you have a desire to see certain players for the first time more than others?  I was looking forward to seeing lots of players over the years before they played.  TP, Bosa, Rod Smith, Dontre, Beanie to name a few.  Not all of them worked out.
