Do they still hang the plaque for the alternates in the lady's room?
I only heard the takes from Alex Boone and the WR from Stanford who went to Seattle (forget his name), neither were positive. What accounts came out that showed he was well liked?
Would be hilarious if it happened, but in order for it to happen both Jimmy and Ross would have to accept complete disassociation with their alma mater. Neither would be welcome back there in any capacity after a stunt like this. Well maybe Ross' checkbook could fix that for him I guess.
Jimmy's national reputation would be fine if he left, can't see anyone faulting him for returning to the NFL. In Ann Arbor though, they'd all be women scorned for the rest of his life.
This can't be said enough. The holding our DL and LB's have to deal with is ridiculous and the non-calls our opponents get is criminal. Either B1G officials are worse than I give them credit for (scary thought because I think they are downright horrendous) or there's a sympathy mandate given to our opponents because we out recruit them so badly and the B1G wants to help them out. Maybe its both.
Did you hear he flunked?
What a dumb shit.
Who knows if they cheated in the SuperBowl, or if they cheated on top of doctoring the footballs in the AFC CG. All we know for sure is they have a history of breaking the rules, so their "accomplishments" should be taken with a grain of salt.
No they didn't, they lost in 2007.
Pats got caught cheating in 2007, then didn't win a SuperBowl until 2015 when they were again caught cheating. I don't put much stock into anything that franchise "accomplishes".
Talked to the GF about it last night, she said someone definitely got fired for that. Tried to get her to find out who it was but she doesn't know anyone in that department of ESPN.
Not a fan of Johnny, but that last TD play was a thing of beauty.
How can we be sure Seau and Belcher's issues weren't influenced by anything other than CTE though? There are way more examples of players living fulfilling lives after leaving the game than there are Belcher's/Seau's. A ratio that makes those two outliers, not the norm.
Injuries have always been a reason for concern with football, not sure this changes anything. The study certainly doesn't because it really proves nothing other than repeatedly hitting your head can, not will, lead to long term ill effects. Not really anything groundbreaking there. It really just highlights the importance of the fundamentals of the game, which have sadly been underdeveloped by an abundance of poor coaching at the lower levels. Football is dangerous, always has been and if you're doing it wrong you're way more likely to get hurt and/or hurt someone else.
So 96% of the brains they collected, in a collection of brains of football players showing signs of CTE, showed evidence of CTE.
Well that certainly is shocking........
Anyone remember Andre Johnson going HAM on Cortland Finnegan's head? That cost Johnson $25k, so $35k seems relatively high in this case. Finnegan was fined also for his role in that fight, something that should have happened to Cooper here imo.
Why would contract incentives for team championships entice anyone to take the UT job?
Show is based on a false pretense anyway. None of them could ever be the first ever American Ninja, we've had one of those since 1985:
The freak out was hilarious, especially when he re-enacted the play for the ref. Can't find it in gif form but heres a funny pic from it:
They attacked a ref in Varsity Blues? I was in college when that movie came out, so maybe I was just too drunk to remember that part?
I shutter to think what would have happened to me had I done that when I was playing. My coach would have kicked my ass, then my dad would have kicked my ass.
They stopped playing Major College Football a while ago, they play Mid-Major CFB now.
Wasn't Pipkins given the boot earlier this year too? He ran his mouth about us during his recruitment as well, IIRC.
The guy was Dadi Nicolas too, VT's best Pass rusher. Unbelievable move by Cardale.
They should have said against P5 rather than P5 vs P5. Then they could highlight how Temple destroyed the PSU Offense.
Gonna go out on a limb and guess Braxton graded as a Champion on Offense.
I still want to know what lead to the Boren PF. The replay shows him block his man to the ground and that guy proceed to attack him as he's walking away. I'm sure Boren said something, but how is that not offsetting given the other guy tried to tackle him from behind well after the whistle?
