St. Eds killed them. The mercy rule went into effect in the 3rd quarter because they were up 30. There was a running clock after that. The breakout player in the game was St Eds junior RB Cole Gest. He ran for 194 yards and 3 touchdowns on 11 carries. It looks like he beat out Andrew Dowell for the starting running back spot. His only offer right now is from Toledo but that will likely change. 5-9 185 lbs. If he grows an inch or two then he will be a very big recruit.

Yeah and the QB is a 3 star dual threat.

Locksley, the stud Gilman QB, hasn't thrown much because St. Eds has a couple of 4 star cornerbacks. Nobody is open.

Great beer but it feels odd to go with a foreign beer when watching a football game. I prefer Ommegang for my Belgian fix.

If you are going to christen these glasses this weekend then I would recommend Heavy Seas Loose Cannon. It's an IPA that packs a punch and I think has some hints of fruit. The beer score is 90 and it's 7.3% abv. The brewery is headquartered in Baltimore and obviously has a nautical theme so I think it makes sense for the Navy game.

Having watched Glenville for years, there are two clear traits of their program:

#1 They always have lots of talent.

#2 They are always the more undisciplined team. It's so bad it's comical.

My guess with Lattimore is that he's just learning how to be more disciplined about things. I'm not worried.

Herman said the Wisconsin game last year was one of his best of the year? Ummm..... no. I've watched that game a couple times and he missed a bunch of throws, including a receiver wide open in the end zone. The first half was not very good. It got better, but there was a lot of rust early on.

Drinking some Little Sumpin' from Lagunitas tonight. It's a fantastic Cali IPA. My favorite beer season is the Fall because you get more of the beers with spices like pumpkin beers and Christmas ales. My standard Saturday in the Fall includes an IPA (Lil Sumpin, Loose Cannon or Schlafly APA), a pumpkin (Pumpkinhead, Sams, etc) and a Belgian, typically an Ommegang (only good Belgian beer made in the USA). Raging Bitch is also good because it fulfills the IPA and Belgian requirements.

I don't know what to make out of the fact that he is a pro-style QB. I thought that a dual threat QB was a core part of Urban's offensive vision. However, I think that by 2017 we will have plenty of the athletes that Urban loves. A big QB who can distribute the rock will be welcomed by fans like me who freak out at some of the missed throws from Braxton. But how does losing the QB running ability affect everything else?

This is a win for all involved. Best of luck to him in his medical career!

Honestly, when he was offered late in the recruiting process, I figured that he would never play but hoped I was wrong. Recently, I was looking into him because I never hear him mentioned when talking about receivers. It was strange but I didn't want to start a threat bashing him or something. I hope that he had some great experiences and that OSU can fill that roster spot with another great recruit.

Jersey in the house! I actually think they are going to be ok. They have a super tough league schedule but they have some talent. I could see them beating Penn State. If they can put some wins together then they should be able to start keeping more of the top players in the state. New Jersey and Maryland/DC have more talent than any B1G state other than Ohio. Rutgers and Maryland should become 2 of the better programs in the B1G.

Umm.... yes. People want to watch Notre Dame. The only reason they haven't joined the Big Ten is because they don't want to share the revenue from their football TV deal. They wanted to join for every other sport, like they are with the ACC, but the Big Ten thought that was BS and said all sports or no sports. I think ND should be in the Big Ten or stay independent in football and join the Big East. At least that would allow them to be with other Catholic colleges and they wouldn't have to drop Michigan and Michigan State so they can play the likes of Wake Forest, NC State and Duke.

My wife is pregnant and we are expecting our first child, a boy, on December 6th. I want to be a super supportive husband and catch some of the Big Ten Championship game. I'm not stupid enough to voice this desire but she knows. She is from Ann Arbor and I was born at halftime of an OSU-Michigan game. OSU won.

I think it's a traffic circle in the US and a roundabout in Europe.

Driving does suck. My wife uses the car and I only drive on the weekends. I bike or take Metro to work. It feels great to work 11 miles of biking into my daily routine and it doesn't actually add any time. Now I'm looking at a job that may requires a "vehicle". I'll probably just end up getting an electric assist bike since I may ride 30-40 miles per day and it's still free to park on the sidewalk, unlike a car or scooter. There is no way I want to sit in DC traffic. Also, cars cost like $12,000 per year on average. It's way cheaper to buy a fancy cargo bike like an ExtraCycle Edgerunner.

The only Big Ten schools that they both have offers from are Indiana, Illinois and Northwestern. The only SEC schools are Vandy and Kentucky. They are both 4 stars so that's kind of surprising. Perhaps they want to earn offers from some better programs. They seem like the kind of in-state guys that OSU may offer if they miss on bigger out of state targets.

As I recall, the assistants on Mack Brown's former staff will be paid what they were due to make this year unless they accept another job. If they accept another job then Texas will pay them nothing. So Texas may be paying him $500,000 to not accept a position on another staff. That's what I recall but I can't find a link.
