This discussion got pretty meta, eh?

I guess it just seems to me that worrying about rankings and playoffs doesn't do anybody a whole lot of good. I've been enjoying the hell out of the college football season this year and there's a lot of it left to enjoy without worrying about what twelve people I've never met think about it. I suppose if you enjoy worrying about it I won't stop you but there's no reason to feel persecuted between now and the end of the year over a scenario that probably won't even happen, and it would suck if that unnecessarily damaged your enjoyment of the game.

VT used it against us because we were consistently able to keep the chains moving on the ground but they suspected that if they stopped the run entirely they could hang with us by forcing us to be one dimensional and do nothing but pass. We were a run-first offense with an untested passing game.

That's entirely the opposite of Penn State. They're averaging like 2 ypc on the ground, not nearly enough to stay ahead of schedule, while their passing game is consistently the stronger part of their offense. We wouldn't want to sell out against the run and dare them to pass because they already can't run the ball. If anything we'll be daring them to run with less resources in the box and more in pass coverage. Make sense?

Nice! That first quarter yardage graph really tells all, doesn't it?

I think the Maryland pie chart (or key, either way) has its colors flipped.

Leaving the morality cupboards bare as far away as Tallahasee. The balls on that man!

Check out Skillet in German Village for slightly pretentious but nonetheless amazing breakfast fare. Their biscuits in gravy are a bit unconventional but to-die-for, they know how to brew a decent cup of joe, and you'll see at least a couple things on the menu that you've never thought of. Give it a shot!

Braxton's totally not an MBA student. The roster lists him as a Comm major and I've never seen him around the grad business programs.

I think Southern Tier's Pumking is phenomenal too.
