Agreed, to me it looked more like a Cam Newton-like superman shirt rip off than a throat slash. The funny thing is Indiana screwed up the return and got a block in the back penalty, so they still started with terrible field position. As Mrs. Bert would say- "Karma".
It seems like most teams lately have backed off aggressively going after punts as punters have become much better at getting run into and selling it. Teams just don't want to risk giving up a penalty for a first down for a low percentage chance at a block. Its probably better statistically to just set up your return.
I agree with the op about special teams becoming a increasing concern. Going back to the Clemson game with the killer muffed punt and then the st disaster on saturday it seems like we may be losing winnable games because of special teams play.
Nicely done, its been a while since I've seen that movie. Another good quote- "Bart! How many times have I told you to wash your hands after weekly cross burnings?"
Looking back on it now, it does seem weird how quickly Van Halen sold that song to Pepsi for TV commercials, which is when it blew up. In hindsight, I think maybe Eddie Van Halen realized after 0u812 that the post-David Lee Roth band was never going to get to 1984 hieghts, so he decided to cash out on the whole thing by selling songs to Pepsi and whoever else would buy them.
I'm with buckeyebacker here, how many of us slept on Toledo last year because they were a MAC team? I think the bucks win, but I don't think they cover the spread.
