This is the year of "What the hell, how is he still around?" in the B1G apparently. Valentine, Ferrell, Hammonds, and LaVert? Ugghhh.. And now I miss Aaron Craft even more.
Baylor running a gauntlet compared to ND? Baylor is just getting into the toughest part of their schedule, up until this point it has been laughable. ND has played Clemson, Navy, USC, Temple, and Pitt over the last 5 games. Baylor has played Texas Tech, Kansas, West Virginia, Iowa State, and Kansas State. The committee is supposed to look at what teams have done, not project what they will do. Which is why we see the rankings differ a lot form week to week.
Maybe Top 4 is a stretch for ND (although I wouldn't put them lower than 6), but to say that Baylor has played a tougher schedule is ridiculous.
Hey I think I've seen him! Any given Sunday? Won the Super Bowl and drove off in a Hyundai?
If you want a college bar atmosphere, go to Chumley's on high street, between 16th and 17th (I think). Very good selection of beer and TV screens everywhere. There is an upstairs balcony that also has TVs everywhere and provides a good people watching spot if you sit at the railing. Shouldn't have a problem finding a spot to sit that early. Food wise, it's probably slightly above average bar food.
TCU absolutely destroyed Ole Miss last year who had a good defense. I don't think the first game of the season means as much as most here are proclaiming.
I had a Shock Top Twisted Pretzel on tap at the Giant Eagle Market District the other day and it was amazing. Definitely a nice in between from the lighter summer beers to the darker ocktoberfest styles.
Also, if you've never been to a Market District, you are missing out. I don't know how I made it through a grocery store before.
I recently moved and live about 10 mintues from Akron's stadium (Infocision I think?) and can't wait to watch some mid week #MACtion in person.
The latest strike of the AIRBHG.
For what its worth, Zach Smith tweeted:
Well that picture blew up... Making a @Zone6_OSU helmet - wasn't hinting at anything else!!— Zach Smith #Zone6 (@CoachZachSmith) August 19, 2015
But then he also tweeted, so who knows:
I really like what Sirius does with this camp tours. They have a pretty solid overview of the state of the program, but mostly seem to bring in guys for interviews. Those interviews are really fun to listen to as you get a lot of different personalities. Makes it hard to not like these players (from all teams) and see how much fun they are having.
Glad to see this is happening, but it can do nothing but bring both fanbases together.
Wait... How have I never heard that Tom Herman was a MENSA member? I bet none of the people that wanted him to be fired last year knew that.
Gotta disagree with you there. I actually really like the Notre Dame jerseys for this year. Tweet for those who haven't seen.
Agreed, but there are always exceptions. My grandmother is 98 and had a stroke about 6 months ago and has made a remarkable recovery. Back to living by herself in her own house. Here's to Bruce being the same way!
I'm too young to remember Coach Bruce, but from everything I've heard about him, he was a great man. Sending prayers and thoughts for a speedy recovery to you, coach!
Damn. Sorry to hear this. Here's to a full and speedy recovery!
F*ck injuries and F*ck michigan.
I think Duron would have been really special had he stuck it out here. I was once studying in the younkin center (which is where the athletes get tutors and help for classes). I could hear some yelling coming from one of the rooms every now and then. The door opened and Cris Carter came walking out with someone else, who I assume was affiliated with the university. A few minutes later Duron came walking out practically in tears. I don't know what was said, but I'm sure that is father ripped him a new one. Obviously wasn't enough though.
Can I say Braxton?! Seriously I would say Damon Webb at corner.
Worried about VT because of the atmosphere and Michigan just because of Cooper *shudders*
Games don't go well early and lead to a split between each QB.
Dontre, would love to see him break a few this year

Tennessee. I lived in Knoxville last year and am just not convinced Butch can develop talent yet.
I like Arizona as a sleeper.
I like Gerogia to win the SEC east. I think Richt finally puts a great season together.
I'm going back and forth on breakout player but think it will either be Brandon Harris at LSU or Malik Zaire at ND. Both have pretty solid casts around them and some experience under their belts.
I know these COAs come straight from the universities and apply to general students, but how the NCAA didn't see this becoming an arms race is beyond me. I'm sure they could have paid someone a small portion of all that cash they rake in to come up with standardization that takes into account cost of living and other factors. That way the decision isn't up to the athletic departments. If UT wants to give more money, they better get some other universities on board and have the NCAA change it.
I'm also curious to know if those increases in COA at most of the SEC schools have an effect on students on full academic scholarships. Do they get more money since the schools have raised their COA?
Everyone make sure to pour one out for the fallen
In, I want to say, July I benched more than Ezekiel Elliot
I've been around since 2011, but have really started posting recently.
1.5% of the way to 10,000!
My mom, dad, aunts and uncles all went to UL. Dad graduated in 75 and mom was the year before I believe.
