The best one here, by far, is "developmental." Kirk, you've outdone yourself yet again. There is no way you can spin that to sound good.
I hardly call Purdue a failure. Missed extra point? Not on Miller. He was, indeed, "clutch." If you don't remember Purdue, I recommend watching that last drive.
In fact, I'm not sure you can call any of those 2011 games his fault. So that brings you to MSU and Clemson. He put up 35 against Clemson and the defense let us down. And we all know the play call that let us down against MSU (in addition to the defense).
Remember when Braxton led the entire country in game-winning drives? I do. I'd say you can't get much more clutch than that, whether you, personally, had confidence in his ability to "throw the ball down the field with accuracy in crunch time."
That disagreement aside, I agree with you on a lot of this. Let's not forget, however, that this is the first year that Braxton would have had elite talent (outside of Carlos Hyde) at his disposal.
I need to plan a trip back home to see this. Should be a lot of fun, and will certainly bring back great memories of playing outdoors.
That Northwestern video is spectacular. Bravo.
Woah, where did you collect so much gratuitous Iowa hate?
Excited for B1G hockey. Previously, we had a bunch of conferences no one outside of hockey fans understood (i.e. WCHA). Now people can place teams and there can be an actual Big 10 tournament. Should help the sport, and allow people to give it a chance.
Didn't Devin Smith drop that pass in the picture above? He would have walked into the endzone.
I'll be honest. Got a chuckle from Sharknado 2: The Second One.
Nothing wrong with looping the App St. game. Does this ever get old?
Braxton's reaction upon hearing the news that he was being investigated:
Braxton's reaction after he was cleared:
I don't see footballs, but I see footprints.
I personally love ND's:
Spectacular. Thank you.
So...when does the media get back into practice?
It is kind of unfair comparing these other college players to a guy who is already guaranteed a first ballot entrance into the NFL hall of fame without taking an NFL snap.
Wasn't Tyvis Powell excelling at the star position in spring ball?
So passive aggressive with Dave Winfield. Not befitting a man who retired an Indian.
A typo on a dudes' forearm who likely has no relation to the U of Alabama (or apparently any school)? Shocking. Go big or go home.
Edit--apologies about the size, I can't reduce despite my best efforts.
I saw this elsewhere, but here is the SOS for each of the top 10 teams based solely on the preseason rankings (i.e. add up all the points of each team on any given schedule):
Top 10 Teams SOS, based on Coaches Poll votes
Alabama – 2114
Ohio State – 947
Oregon – 1605
Stanford – 2830
Georgia – 3940
Texas A&M – 2407
South Carolina – 3280
Clemson – 3230
Louisville – 13
Florida – 4160
Uh, yeah, among other things. When I moved to Columbus from Minneapolis, I thought people were joking when I received news that school was canceled due to two inches of snow.
