And Jack isn't an NCAA student-athlete.

Thank you for this. I'm not going to pretend that the academic rigor of any big time, big program college athlete is the same as the average student. Actually - who cares about the comparison?

The point is that signing thousands of anything takes time. To each their own on how they spend (or waste) their time in undergrad, but I think it's a different story if Jameis Winston plays Xbox for 2,000 hours versus signs 2,000 things that are then sold.

Maybe he's not getting paid, but my oh my what a peculiar way to spend your downtime...

Every time I see them during a broadcast, the same thought crosses my mind: Do these guys wear people out Monday through Friday talking up and recapping what amounts to "didja see me on the TV?"

Michael Thomas slips a tackle and takes it through a gasping white-out to the house. From 35+ yards - just enough time for the groaning to crescendo into wails of protest. 

Bank it.

I realize they'll be in the conversation at the end, but Alabama somehow seems irrelevant this year. Guessing the shiny, new toys in Mississippi are getting much of certain network's love.

I'm not here to tell anyone what to post or laugh at or how to direct their anger, but would throw out that it always comes down to the Golden Rule. I'll reserve my comments on PSU football and fans on many levels (including the super duper fun time I had attending an Ohio State victory in Beaver Stadium), but using a broad brush with a topic so atrocious nullifies any legitimate, pointed, and clever zinger to be had.

In short, we can do better than that without getting into the off-the-field awfulness.

And - I'll admit to some booze-fueled posts - I would never bet against somehow being tagged to anything left on this site or anywhere else on the Interwebs.

With that, I'll leave with: Show them Ohio's here - next weekend and thereafter.

Gotta believe Kelly knew/knows a rub route is 50-50 on getting called - it's a subjective rule and interpretation.

He can argue about letting them play and not making a game-changing call all he wants, but it's basically a coin toss. Move along, Irish. Shall we?

I'd love to lead with some sort of Mississippi joke, but I've never set foot there and learned long ago that city/state/country is never a thing to poke fun at without more than a one-off visit as the basis. Anyway...

Did not see Ole Miss-Bama, except in highlights. Have not seen and will not watch another game, except maybe the Egg Bowl. So, no comment.

Watched MSU rough up Auburn (who I think is better than Ole MIss). Yeah - one game versus "if you played them 10 times," but they did everything right.

Let's not knee-jerk hate on SEC teams. All bag man rumors and snide jokes notwithstanding, Mississippi is balling this season - on both sides of the ball, but especially D.

Agree with this.

I think the X's and O's favor Ohio State ten times over. I don't want to get too caught up in the intangibles, but this is much more of a big boy road game than the two tilts in Maryland. 

All things considered, I'm not worried about what PSU can bring on the field or in the stands, but more with a flat or sputtering performance by the Buckeyes that makes it a struggle.

Overuse of quotes is never "pretentious."

Comment 18 Oct 2014

Was surrounded by Rutgers fans today.

They were astounded, but curious and chatty, by much of the pregame traditions and crowd participation.

They were speechless after the 14-0 start. 

Comment 18 Oct 2014

Watching ND-FSU is the dirtiest I've felt in... Maybe ever. 

But, at least I now know that all I really want is for anyone to take FSU down a peg or infinity.
