The race stuff can be pretty scary there at times. I'm a youth minister in NC, and one of my fellow ministry friends told me that they had a black couple from their church who had broken down on 77 late one afternoon somewhere between Beckley and the border. Someone had stopped and told them they had better be gone by dark, or they would be back to kill them because they were black. Pretty crazy that that stuff still exists today.
This has been the biggest improvement this season without a doubt. The tackling has improved drastically this year, and it was on display front and center on Saturday night. One play in particular that stood out was when Gordon ran in to a wall at the line, bounced it to the left, and Eli Apple came up to drop him for a yard. Credit to the coaches for getting back to the fundamentals this year!
56-13. Bring it home boys!
I have a picture with my mom in the hospital at 1 day old watching us win in 84.
That punt return blew the roof off of the Shoe!
Yeah, finally saw the replay, and it definitely looked like he got blasted from behind. I've seen it called a lot closer to the front than that hit.
But props to Florida State, which has made the country cheer for the Hurricanes, the Fighting Irish and Bobby Petrino this year.
If you'd have told me last year that I would have cheered for these three teams this season, I would have told you to put down the Blue Sky. THis is quite the feat, FSU.
A very valid question. Definitely need some clarification on this issue. Nothing better than the smothered hashbrowns.
Yeah, I like 3:30 kicks. Very much like the Rose Bowl in regards to finishing in the dark. The best of both worlds, in my opinion.
Here's to a speedy recovery, Dontre! Hope to see you again in time for the playoffs.
Congrats JT! Heck of a game on Saturday night. Very well deserved. Keep it up!
I remember one play in particular where Langford had a big run away from Bosa where Miller got turned in. You could see Bosa holding the edge on the other side, though. He did a really good job of that all night. Without his play, we definitely don't have the great games from Washington and Bennett.
The moment where I knew we were going to be alright was the 4th and goal conversion to tie it up at 14. It was like with one play, all the demons of the past 11 months had been exercised. Huge moment for our young offense.
JT reminds me a lot of another #16 who played under center in his running style. He is not afraid to get physical when he is running. Just like Krenzel, he does what he has to do to make the play. I love it!
Agreed. Held Lippett in check all night except for that play where he wasn't out on him in time (and the subsequent facemask).
Too many to count.
Interesting to hear Woody and Earle's thoughts on TV and football. I'd certainly get a lot more done around the house if there were no night games.
Well played. Also, there will be discussion about how down Stanford is this year and how that must have started before the Rose bowl, which negates MSU's victory. And as a special treat for fans of both teams, the celebrity guest picker this week will be none other than Mike Hart!
This is the best thing I have ever read on 11W, period! Incredible job, Ramzy! Would it be too much to ask to get the transcript for the final 2 hours and 45 minutes of the show?
I said when it happened they should have sent him. Go for the tie or die trying, especially the way Bumgarner was pitching. That much on the line, make the Giants earn their championship with a perfect throw from left field.
