Agreed. That's why I said attempted. The sad thing is what he did was more than anyone else.
An argument could be made, and is likely the reason the sanctions were lifted, that the NCAA had no authority to levy punishment in this situation seeing as it was a criminal matter.
It's also " not exactly a new concept or one that should be exceedingly difficult to understand" that many who are upset the sanctions were lifted are more upset that the PSU fanbase "gets off" rather than the school being let off the hook.
Yea, didn't include him as it seems he at least attempted to do the right thing...even though he remained silent after he told Paterno. But yea, his career is likely over.
Everyone involved is gone. Everyone who had a hand in the cover up is either dead, in jail, or heading to jail. Why continue to punish players and coaches who did nothing wrong?
Look, I agree the PSU fanbase is delusional...especially in their continued devotion to Paterno, but the sanctions were meant to punish the school, not the fans.
Do you REALLY want to spin it that way?
When we beat A&M and Missouri they they were in the B12, with the most recent win being over 15 years ago...it is ABSOLUTELY misleading. If you want to play pretend and bend the facts then that's your choice. I'm going to be a man, take my lumps, and admit our record against the SEC is pitiful.
Eleven Warriors getting some national press.
What else do you want to blame on the coaching staff? Global warming? ISIS?
Not at all? And as you can see others feel the same about this thread.
If you're talking about my only other comment today, I'm not sure how that came across as uncalled for. I was just pointing out a common tactic many smaller outlets use these days in an attempt to "scoop" other outlets while trying to maintain credibility.
Because another thread with the exact same title was needed...
He's playing both sides of the fence. If true, he can play the "you heard it hear first" card. If it ends up being nothing, he'll spin it as he never claimed anything to be true. Pretty typical of (wannabe) media these days.
Maryland, and Indiana to that list of possible losses.
Dear Jesus, get a grip. Or just stop posting.
First of all, I've only downvoted a handful of your dozens or asinine comments...it's not just me my man.
Second, there are these things called ISP addresses...but good luck creating more accounts.
CincyOSU is a little bitch that is an internet tough guy but I bet is a homo in real life.
So many things here, I don't even know where to start but generally calling someone an internet tough guy, then calling that person a "bitch homo" OVER THE INTERNET is just a tad hypocritical don't you think?
Heres a free tip....don't make stupid ass comments and you won't get down voted. Ppl didn't dv you bc of your opinion, they downvoted the lunacy behind they way you expressed that opinion.
Then go away. Cry somewhere else.
I'm just asking because if I remember correctly Jonny Manzeil was a RS-frosh, Hill is a RS-frosh, Mariota was a RS-frosh, Winston was a RS-frosh, Tebow was a true soph, Nick Marshall wasnt even a QB. Bama reloads @ OL, A&M reloads @ OL, FSU reloads at OL, Auburn reloads @ OL, Stanford reloads @ OL, Wisconsin reloads @ OL.
This is one of the dumbest things I've ever read. You're not looking at the entire picture of what we are dealing with here...AND you're making asinine statements after TWO freaking games.
NONE of those teams lost their Heisman front runner before the season. And don't give me that crap about Barrett and Jones getting reps...the offense is different with those two than Miller. The staff had 10 days to prepare a RS Freshman to run our offense. Those other schools you mentioned didn't deal with the same kind of QB change we are dealing with. If you can't see the difference then that's your issue.
NOW, combine that with losing the best RB in college football last year and 4 out of 5 starters on what was the best o-line in school history and you have the ingredients for a slow start.
If we struggle all season, then by all means criticize. But to do so at this point makes you look like a lunatic.
My comment is that our offensive staff could do much better than they have. Is that even debatable?
After two freaking games? Hell yes, its more than debatable. Are you forgetting we don't have our starting QB? Are you forgetting we lost an NFL RB? Are you forgetting we lost 4 starters from one of the best lines we have ever had? If we still struggle at the end of the season, you have an argument. But right now, it's just absurd.
How old are you again
Really? What kind of functioning adult still says "brah" when trying to sound intelligent?
Are you privy to insider information within the Alabama program?
Please, for your sake, just stop now.
Nick Saban forced out Doug Nussmeyer just last year because he wasn't getting it done,
You can't make up things and then pass them off as fact. It doesn't work that way.
Here's where knowing what you are talking about is helpful.
Bama's coordinator left on his own terms....to become the O-Coordinator at UM.
Alabama lost 2 games in a row last year, and nearly lost to a bad WVU team. Do you think people down south were calling for Alabama's coaches to resign.
Step away from the ledge.
Look how many starters we had in the NFL yesterday off of last years team. Once they get good coaching, they turn into really good players, our players are not being developed properly.
Umm....what? Since when did the NFL draft players that weren't NFL caliber? Basically you just said we can't properly develop players, but they are good/prepared enough to get drafted and contribute as rookies.
Funny, most people look at it as a sign of good coaching when many of that teams drafted players are already making significant contributions at the next level.
Dude, just stop. You're making yourself look foolish.
Dude, anyone can add rap music to some film and call it a highlight reel
What does that have to do with anything? I guess most of the OSU highlights on Youtube are also bogus then, by your logic.
BTW he scored on exaclty one of those "highlights".
I didn't know only touchdowns counted as good plays. Thanks for clarifying that for us.
Why are you on Dontre's nuts like that?
Why are you hating on him so much? Did he hit on your girlfriend or something?
That catch he made Sat night was the best/only play I've ever seen him make
