That is worth a thousand upvotes right there. And we all know you would be rollin' in the dough with that many. No, really, I would upvote that if I could.
I agree. Rittenberg doesn't look at any of those facts in his latest B1G blog. In the little I've seen them they have made huge first down plays where most coaches wouldn't dream of risking going for it on 4th and 7 at at their own 40 yard line in the 2nd quarter. Just a very small, minor difference in being able to take major chances. Some things never, ever change.
Congrats Tim and welcome!
Looked like Farrell was bombarded with tweets from ttun fans as to why Morris wasn't tagged as the best QB at camp. Guess he did what he could. They also agreed in unison that Trent Dilfer knows nothing about talent due to the slight. Why of course not.
Good luck in all future endeavors Danny and thanks for all the great work!
Looking forward to the reaction from the Hokester.
According to talking heads the penalties will be considered as bad or worse than the death penalty, which will not be enacted. The fact that a one year death penalty may be easier than loss of many schollies, bowl bans and such for several years.
Alabama will handle their business easily. Saban knows that a big win will mean a lot for his team starting the season. Robinson left, right, and up the middle will not suffice. Unless other playmakers step up big time, no chance for ttun.
Drive, drive on down the field....hum..hum...hum..
Men of the scarlet and gray.....hum...hum....hum..
Don't let them through that line...hum...hum...hum..
We've got to win this game today ...hum...hum....come on dude, sing it!
Says he is 165lbs. going into his senior of HS. He will be brought up to whatever weight the staff feels he needs to be. At 5'10" he could add 15 lbs easily once the nutritionists and Marotti work with him and he matures a little. Many guys are on the small side at that age. Think he will be fine.
Size will be fine. Looks very natural. Nothing looks forced and can he ever accelerate! Love the pickup and the gray box of goodness. Welcome Taivon!
Guess this list should be all that is needed to shut up a wolverine fan using "cheater" to describe OSU? Nahhh, it wouldn't even be considered. You must always consider with whom you are speaking, I guess.
@CincyOSU - Would you rather see the Clery Act enacted on the school basically crippling its ability to educate to the point of its demise or would you rather the death penalty be brought to the football program? At least the U could continue to be an institution of higher learning without a football team. Understood it would probably not be either or but it helps to view it that way IMO.
Posted this in Buckshots and wanted to put it here in regards to other comments. Sorry if it bothers anyone. Basically refers to the possibility of PSU being brought down by the Clery Act. I feel the death penalty would be the best option at that point. The Clery Act would cripple the institution of learning.
My concern is that everyone is in line with "our penalty will be nothing compared to the next entities penalty, no need for us to do anything". And no one does a thing and it will all be forgotten. Nice recruiting class, football on Saturday afternoon, record contributions, all quickly brushed under the rug and forgotten again! I would rather see the death penalty on the football team than the clery act enacted. At least the U can survive that and education can continue
The "violation" is that the people in charge of athletics, the AD, the coach, for now address those two, did not react to the actions of the assistant coach known to be violating little boys. The assistant was "retired" swiftly in 1999 and given university perks to go quietly. To keep it very simple to these two items only shows the direct intent to cover up the "violations" to protect the image of the football program and the coach/administrators jobs. If this isn't Lack of Institutional Control along with failure to adhere to ethics given the extent and magnitude of this atrocity then what is? The NCAA should fold its tent and remove itself from authority if it fails to act against PSU. I would say the same if it was OSU or anyone else.

If you use a little "rub" it may taste a little better (just in case). Watched a BBQ competition last night so I feel a little expertise comment in order.
All reports are that the Freeh findings will be very damning to Paterno. Showing that he was and had been for a long long time as big a man on campus if not bigger than the president. He told the prez how things were to be done with anyone associated with the football team is how it has been told by the insiders. Mr. Green, it isn't too far of a leap, my friend, to say the report will blow the doors off of Paternos supposed legacy. It's not a secret anymore.
Go to any PSU site and they are still defending Paterno, the school, and that they will not receive NCAA punishment as no violations regarding rules were broken. Guess protecting the football team, the university, and the coach from public humiliation and the most damning press possible isn't LOIC after all.
Urban should really try to recruit that Smith guy. No one can touch him! If we get him we will win the National Championship for sure......Can't help but to think of how many thought that when watching Rod's film before we signed him. Shows just how recruiting can be. Not saying he didn't or will not live up to the hype, just no guarantees that a player will come in and contribute in a big way immediately.
Could be wrong but not one commentor, all seemingly PSU fans, ever brought up the fact that the thought/sight of anything PSU related could possibly be considered distasteful to those not drinking Paterno piss. Shows how far from the reality of the situation of devastation to lives these "fans" are. Exactly why the harshest punishment the NCAA could possibly hand out is necessary. Sorry to those that think otherwise, but without it, business as usual will prevail in good old Happy Valley.
I do remember how annoyed I was at the fact young boys were raped and it could have been addressed and some could have been spared. But the university brass including the head coach chose not to tarnish their rep and allow it to continue. This is a situation unlike any other, hopefully we never see another in our lifetime. If any situation deserves the death penalty it is this one, regardless of discipline outlines. It is the university at fault. The current team, coaches, etc. are innocent bystanders that will be unfortunately derailed by it but at times life is very unfair. The absolute message needs sent, period.
Really do not get how a kid committed to PSU for 2013 would do nothing less than run as far and as fast as possible to another school. There will be no bowls, scholarship reductions as bad as USC, along with other restrictions at best coming. That is if the death penalty is not enacted. On that note, I would get a kick out of a certain recruit committing there as opposed to ND which will most likely be his choice.
Spoon the "eats" or whatever the hell it's supposed to be out of Robinsons mouth onto the field beside his lifeless body.
In order to say that PSU deserves no penalty is to say they would not have felt program crippling effects from a Sandusky indictment when it first became known. If it was found to have been covered up, it was soley for the purpose of avoiding that situation. Understand it is unfair for those currently with the team but to allow it to go unpunished is similarly unjust. Abhorrent crimes of all kinds are regularly tried decades later with harsh sentences imposed. And before anyone brings up the fact that this is criminal law, yes, the NCAA has nothing to do with criminal law enforcement but they do have a responsibility to enforce and promote a level playing field for universities and student athletes across the board regardless of the severity of the situation.
