Kind of wondering if they could retire 36 and then honor all the greats who wore it.
Hopefully that worked but if not, it's at 40:30
Was Dumas arrested for this?
Well now don't I feel silly...
Those are two pretty different circumstances. Spence failed two drug tests, and, if this rumor is true, he would have seemingly done everything correctly, including a possible appeals process. He would return to a D line that doesn't have a lot of depth and would add an immediate impact if he is actually in football shape and if this rumor is true (which no one is reporting on). Miller went down with a season ending injury, and his backup proved to be a Heisman contending quarterback. Miller didn't do anything wrong, Barrett just did everything right. It'd be a different situation if Spence was coming back to a line that wasn't waning in depth.
I wish their were incredibly harsh consequences for tweeting super mean things at college students. OR I wish there was a "nice things about Jalin Marshall" thread, because he's great!

scroll to the bottom for highlights. Russell looks like the real deal.
Can't tell if sarcasm, or actually the shark commenting
Narduzzi still worries me. And we're going to have to pressure Connor Cook. I think in hindsight Vtech coming out in a bear defense could have been the biggest gift the Buckeyes could have asked for in terms of prep for Michigan State.
Just wanted to gauge what you all thought about this comment:
Next year? "Braxton's our quarterback. He's a Big Ten Player of the Year."
Who would you all rather have next year if J.T. continues to progress and add more 300+ yard passing games?
Does anyone know what bars are broadcasting the game?
I don't know how I missed this article, but this is easily one of my favorite I've ever read. Well done Ramzy as always. I've got a wedding during the vtech game. The bride said she'd take the TV away if too many people are watching...
DJ, I don't think it's said enough, but your humor rarely fails to make me laugh in the morning.
Right, and that is fantastic that these guys aren't having to pay off loans for the next 30 years, but I think there's been a major shift from "I get to go to _____ university and get my degree for free by playing football/basketball." to "What's the easiest major because I'm dedicating all my time to football/basketball?" Wasn't there a case a year or so back about a recruit not going to scUM because they told him he couldn't major in engineering and play sports?
Maybe I don't understand this but if the players would be able to paid for their likeness wouldn't it follow suit that it wouldn't be illegal to get paid for autographs, boosters, cars as well as other benefits? I've always been of the mindset if you just open up the market, then everything should correct itself, especially if that "Bagman" article is true and the SEC is already in deep with this kind of stuff. Big schools are always going to draw more attention the MAC and Sunbelt schools in my opinion regardless of who has the big boosters. As long as scholarships are kept capped then I've always felt that it should sort itself out.
Something that has bothered me for a long time is the free education argument -- to me it gets less and less valid every year. I don't know how many people have graduated in the passed 2-7 years but unless you're graduating in math, business, engineering, MIS, or IT you're on a level playing field with people who have worked the 4 years you were in college. It seems to be much more cost effective to go straight to a trade school and get a degree as an imaging therapist or get an accelerated nursing degree. I can't imagine that this criminology major that most of these athletes take on is a field that is in desperate need of hundreds of college graduates from various institutions. I can't blame student athletes either, as it seems they have a full time job with football and basketball, and then to take on one of those elite majors would leave very little time to relax at all and actually enjoy the college experience -- obviously Aaron Craft is the exception. I hope this doesn't come off as a disgruntled post grad, but I'm tired of institutions acting holier-than-thou because they're giving away a free pass to shit job market.
Pretty confused as well. Unless he was "under the influence" of something else I don't see what the big deal is. You'd be more of a liability using Listerine.
Probably my favorite twitter acct to follow since Titus. He just seems like an overall good, grounded player. Definitely captain material.
It's pretty awesome watching this sweet 16 teams with bigs that play their tails off and are totally engaged. Definitely took that for granted the last few years.
Couldn't be happier for Shazier, but -- and I hope this doesn't come off as cynicism -- I wish these guys would show up in "combine shape" at the beggining of the season.
Remember Randy Ayers? I'll take Matta any day of the weak, regardless of how this season pans out. I think people can dream all they want about getting a big name coach, but if you get rid of Matta, that's not gonna happen.
I want to die fast if I'm going to die.
Maybe that's what he was teaching our corners?
