Having recently moved to the greater Boston area, all I could do is chuckle forlornly at that TV coverage map.

I used to like these, but since they are being used so much I'm kind of bored with them.  And some aspects are starting to annoy me, like how neither the gray nor the red in the helmet seem to match their counterparts elsewhere in the uniform.  Personally I would go with a bit darker gray in the pants, and also a standard-width stripe for the helmet.

Oh, I can't stand seeing misuses of loose/lose on a sports-oriented website.  Teams win or lose games (verbs).  A defense can be tight or loose (adjectives).  And for the love of all that is holy, please do not use "lost" as a noun, e.g., if a pro team passes on an OSU player it is their "loss".

I always enjoy the OSU v. Illinois game - in terms of games that I look forward to this would be 3rd behind UM and PSU. I'm going to miss seeing this game every year after the new B1G divisions are in place. Of course, I also went to OSU during the Cooper years - in which OSU found increasingly baffling ways to lose to the Illini -  so that likely biases my opinion.

They also pretty clearly picked an OSU db on a passing td.  I remember watching the replays on the stadium monitors to see why their receiver was so open, and both me and a guy in front of me said "that was a pick!".  Bad calls or not, Illinois deserved that win, plain and simple.  A particularly unbelievable performance from their LB Jay Leman (sp?).

I'm going to throw this out here: if they make, say, 2 treys and a few FT, they would have been in the game at the end while still having deplorable stats.  They're a poor shooting team, but that can turn around if a few guys get on a roll.  Anything can happen in the tourney.

With that in mind, I'm more concerned about Matta's "stubbornness" sometimes with regard to who should be on the floor.  e.g. I felt like LSJ should have played all 40 at IU if possible, or Ross should have been left in with 3 fouls, since he was hot at the time. Or during the final 5' of the PSU game Craft should have stayed on the bench, as Scott was doing well at PG.  This team so rarely clicks - I feel like Matta just needs to keep playing whoever is hot, regardless of fouls, fatigue or some predetermined value.

Can someone tell me how that play Cal runs in the displayed gif is legal? OL #78 pretty clearly crosses the LOS (and even the 1st down line) before the pass, which also goes across the LOS.  Wouldn't he then be an ineligible receiver?  The play is indeed very hard to defend, but also hard for the OL to keep track of which option is chosen by the QB.
