Regarding the Purdue letter thing... Obviously could be a total mistake, but..

I know there's an old sales tactic of sending out empty envelopes (especially with the addressee handwritten). Because the person who receives it thinks "Oh this must be a mistake, let me call them and see what was supposed to be in here". Now instead of having sent another spam mail to be thrown in the trash, you have someone calling you whose going to listen to what you have to say. The handwritten addressee part makes it feel all the more important.

Here's the thing everyone ALWAYS fails to mention about this video... People think "oh wow, look at how heroic this cat is". The fact is, the cat is acting LIKE A DOG normally would, that's whats remarkable? Do we look at dogs who scratch things, jump on tables, sit on the top of couch-backs as heroes? No, we say this dog is stupid.

Cats are glorified racoons without the hand-dexterity

Dogs>Cats forever

He looks much more natural on offense, would love to see him play a role similar to the not-so-often-talked-about dallas baker (the touchdown maker) that urban had at florida. He doesn't seem particularly dominant, considering his size and speed at DE

Comment 31 Aug 2014

Forgot about 'Tre?

My biggest take away besides the offensive line's abysmal play, was that Dontre Wilson looked like a completely different player. Not only improved, but I thought he looked like the best uninjured player on this team. Other than the early drop, he was electric. 166 total yards on 13 touches (12.7 avg), and the best avg running the ball at 7.2 ypc. I'd really like to see him get MORE touches

DJ,

I read these every morning, but as we get so close to the season. This skully was great, you are in midseason form. Flame-emojis all around

I may be in the minority here but I've always believed tressel did what most people would do. He was given the tip about a federal investigation, and was told something to the effect of that the info was confidential. It seemed to me he was trying to keep his kids out of a seedy situation, and handle it with them internally while not compromising said investigation. Doesn't the confidentiality of a federal investigation trump the rules of a "non-profit" organization?

Obviously doing this was self-serving for the interest of the football team. But I always thought the confidential nature of the case was the bigger reason for staying quiet with the knowledge of it. I felt the transcripts from tressel's testimony in the NCAA investigation stated this. Once it came into the public sphere, and after the NCAA granted sugar bowl eligibility it felt to me like "ok, lets talk about this now".

I may be totally off-base here, but this factor of it has always driven me a bit crazy

Can we make a rule to never put an eminem-produced beat (excluding renegade) on this site again? My dog looks at me funny when my ears start bleeding before 9am..

Apparently I've been here since the beginning, I remember seeing your guys little stickers show up at Eddie George's and thinking "wow these guys are getting kind of legit" (circa 2007[Still have the sticker too!]). You guys do a wonderful job and although Im more of a voyeur than regular commentator, 11W IS my morning newspaper and I refuse to start a day without getting up to date. Keep up the great work, you're in a league of your own.

Im probably one of the biggest USC-haters, but Pat Haden is probably the most qualified person to be a part of this process. He's been involved just about every part of the game and is a brilliant human being.
