  • SPORTS MOMENT: Witnessing Eddie George in 1995 rushing all over a Simeon Rice-led Illinois defense to the tune of 314 yards, 3 TDs, and even catching one... Orlando Pace didn't look too shabby either... it was a wet cold evening, and all the ponchos were out, but will never forget his milestone. He was a man among boys.

2014 is a one-game season for VT.  However they finish, they'll gloat about their win against us until next year.

Maybe I'm being hard on him, but you really think he would accept any responsibility?  I find it hard to think that he would accept anything... he probably saw that he had even more to lose to let this go to court.

Taking nothing away from JT, but for McShay and other pundits to say that JT is better at X vs Braxton or Braxton is better at Y than JT is only from comparing Braxton's body of work through last year vs JT this year.  We will never know how good of a QB and distributor Braxton would have been this year if not for the injury.  We will never know exactly how much Braxton had improved from Spring to Fall camp... so that said, we should just spend the rest of our time just enjoying what JT is doing for who he is and stop comparing the two.

I liked this - so true:

As James Franklin put it after the win at Rutgers, "[w]inning minimizes issues.Losing magnifies issues. The issues are still there." That magnification happens on the Internet, believe it or not, so maybe just chill out and stay offline (except for Black Shoe Diaries, sillypants) when the inevitable happens.

Being late to this party and clearly not being able to pick myself off the floor from laughing is likely getting my co-workers worried that I am a lunatic... just... wow.  I love this community.

Comment 23 Oct 2014

That's a nice 'share the pizza pie' thought, but I'd like for anyone touching the ball to break one.  I'm just greedy that way.

Eddie also won the heisman breaking tackles for long runs - and I agree that was a different world back then, but EZE is not Eddie and vice versa, but I know he has it in him... just want to see him do it.

Comment 23 Oct 2014

Before everyone harks the "I'm glad he's no longer here" sentiments, remember that he is responsible for recruiting and bringing Vonn Bell into our team.  Far be it from us to assassinate his character without knowing everything.  That said, I know that the secondary is playing better this year whether it's because of scheme, coaching or both, but either way, I wish him all the luck and success at JMU, and I hope UNC's mess and his implication does not have a trail that leads to something similar in our program.

Where's M Man to defend Brandon... You know what would be highly entertaining is if there was video of a UM fan carrying a box of Dominoes pizza looking for Dave Brandon, and upon finding him, take out the pie and give him a biatch slap across the face with the whole pizza... that would be entertainment - fallout included.

Comment 23 Oct 2014

The Ace and Brian exchange is pure gold [pants]!  Speaking of UM people, does anyone have the ditty on exactly what happened to our venerable M Man, or is his name taboo now?  I believe he acted out of order and Ramzy put the squeeze on him, but just wondering what he did (other than get on his soapbox about Title IX and defending Gibbons).

Comment 22 Oct 2014

I know EZE hasn't had the opportunity to break one just yet, but I'd like to see his speed against college competition.  He's reliable to get 4-5 yds and fall forward (a lot like Eddie George), but want to seem have that breakaway speed that 'Los developed... I wonder if adding the weight made him any slower?

Comment 22 Oct 2014

The D was simplified to get immediate results and allow the boys to be more instinctive in reacting to shut down the competition.  Is it Chris Ash's entire D playbook?  I doubt it... I bet he has some schematic ideas he would like to implement with our talent once they have the core principles down.  He said they are getting better and better, and that's the key measurable... we'll be back to being a fearsome defense before it's all said and done, so my trust is that we will get better.  Not necessarily just in Chris Ash - though he is a big part of it.  Credit the whole D staff, and Urbz for leading them back to square 1 and rebuilding this D and culture brick by brick.
