How can there not be a shootout at some point? I get player safety as a reason to stop as it is high school but have a rule to go to a shootout after say 3 OTs!! You gotta to determine a winner in a championship game!
After Burner! When I was a kid I thought if given a chance I could actually fly a F-14 and do 7 barrel roles in a row.
@Earle-See what happens when u don't use italics
Great question! The university/Nike decides what jersey number to sell. They typically put out 2-3 jerseys a year. What if I'm Joey Bosa and OSU/Nike only puts out a Miller #5 and a Spence #8. Is Bosa allowed to invest his own money into having his Jersey made? What are the copyright laws with the university/Nike to do that? Does the jersey have to have his name on the back or is it just the number? Who holds rights to the number? When did it stop being Wiley and becoming Braxton? I would think there would be a lot of dicey situations when sharing "properties" between universities and players.
Is it not us, the fans money paying for all of this? Our purchase of tickets, jerseys, etc...? So we shouldn't have an opinion on the subject because we haven't played college football, but we have acquired thousands of dollars of debt for our education that they haven't. Maybe they shouldn't speak on the matter because scholarship athletes have never walked in our shoes.
As stated above, its a slippery slope. Even if there was money given to many of the players the next thing to come from their mouths is it is not enough. If the NCAA let them get a job, how many do you think would actually get a job? Many of the them would complain they don't have time for a job. Which I would agree with however there are many students who have jobs to keep themselves in school. They don't have a job for extra spending money they have job to help cover costs of tuition. I don't feel sorry for any athlete not getting paid extra for playing a sport if they are on a full-ride scholarship. Worst case scenario if they don't make it to the league, they got a free education worth thousands.
When I hear athletes like Roby speak on the subject it just puts a bad taste in my mouth. It comes off as looking for a hand-out.
You better not be fooling.....
Give Fallon a chance. The great thing about him is not only his talents (impressions, musician, etc...) but his ability to get other celebs out of their comfort zones. All the different games and sketches he does with his guests really show just how talented some of these celebs/actors/musicians can be.
It doesn't seem hard to find content as much as its difficult to find where others are posting in "live" time. The forum is great, I love it! A one stop shop to see where everybody is at and where/what the discussion is throughout the day.
However, when you are on the home page you have no idea where discussions are taking place. You can see how many comments are on the stories but can't tell if there is new commenting going on. No comments on Buckshots or priority articles at the top of the page, etc..I find myself clicking on articles to see if there were new comments and most of the time it was a waste as no new comments were posted. This is the frustrating part for me as I would be fine clicking back and forth from homepage to forum page as long as the homepage was giving me more info on where the conversations are taking place.
My two cents. Keep up the great work. It's appreciated.
I feel for him too. I had an uncle who died of unstokeness a few years ago.
Awesome information! Now....... Where do I locate these GIF's?
This kind of story is simply shocking to me!!!
Like many here, I'm also in the process of trying to she'd pounds. I started at 260lbs at start of the year my goal is to see the wonderful "1" number again. I've been doing well with diet and working on portion control, etc... I've always needed something to train for to help the motivation. Years ago (abt 80lbs ago) I was active in triathlons, I'm looking to get back into it as it was always fun and mixed up the workouts. So far so good to start the year! I haven't looked at the scale as I don't really want to worry about the number but I am already tightening the belt and noticing pants are loose.
The one issue I am having is shin splints. I'm obviously overweight and I carry all my weight in the stomach/chest and I have legs that would make a 14yr old girl jealous. I have been running 2-3 times a week no more than 2 miles continuesly. I've been mixing up bike, swimming, even mixing in eliptical to ease some of the pounding, as well as some weight training but I have noticed my lower legs are sore and hurt. Anyone else having or have had this issue? I know as I begin to lose weight it will help with the pound on the legs but curious if anyone has any advice. Ice? Hot tub? Etc... That I could do post workout to help. Thanks in advance and everyone working on the weightloss keep it up!
Well done, quote of thread so far! Sums up season pretty well
Did the site open when you clicked on it?- Fickell'd
I just found this thread today.
Yes, this rule would be turrible....
I would counter the MSU game by saying that when playing a "great" defense like Sparty we knew it was going to be difficult to put up points with even a great offense. When a great offense meets a great defense its a stale-mate in some ways. MSU's offense was of zero concern to a competent defense. However we couldn't get off the field on third down for much of the game. If we had had an average defensit would have given our offense more opportunities to "crack the code" of Sparty's defense.
To me it goes hand in hand, you have to be great on one side of the ball and at minimal average on the other side to have it work. It doesn't matter which side of the ball is which. However you cant win championships with one side of the ball putting up a season of negative records.
Tressel, that you?
I think the fanbase has taken the comments to literal. I don't care what program you are at or how well you recruit, as a coach you have to redshirt. Example, if you are getting 5* recruits year in and out that means you have quality depth with great experience. Even the most highly touted incoming freshman will not beat out other more experienced players (if everyone has lived up to hype). I think what Meyer is saying when he says "we don't redshirt" is as a freshman you will be given a chance to compete for a spot on the field.
That's the thing, we didn't face strong passing attacks last year either and look what the teams did to us. We made every QB look like a Heisman contender.
I'm sure Big Nut was simply trying to use his "fame" to get great tickets so he could donate those tickets to the less fortunate.
Maybe a potential compromise would be to have a "Recently Commented" section, where you post just the username of who has most recently commented instead of any of their text. that would at least let regulars see who and where people are commenting and they can join the discussion.
Agreed, I just hope we distribute the ball to everyone. We were a two trick pony last year with miller/Hyde (Ironically until we should have used Hyde late in games). Would love to see Braxton distribute to 5-6 different receivers a game and hand off to 2-3 different playmakers. Gotto get everyone involved, something we didnt do a lot of last year.
