2014 is a one-game season for VT. However they finish, they'll gloat about their win against us until next year.
I think he gone...
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.
11W - I really dig the use of the state with the lines as a natural break in these posts. I also liked the buckeye leaves when you used them. Great work on keeping things fresh
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.
Truly timeless moments... inspires Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy. Thanks for the gif!
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.
Fantastic - thanks Mech
I like Dan Mullen and what he's been able to accomplish there. Kudos to him. Let's see if he is building a annual contender while Florida flails... I mean fails... I mean fail at flailing and failing
Thanks Earle - too bad... it's nice to have discourse.
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.
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.
See comment above yours as a plausible explanation (IH8UOFM).
There should have been an option to vote for OSU by >100
My sentiments: I want our D to beat every opponent with the ugly stick... on every snap they are out there... create a lot of 3-and-outs, and demoralize opponent offenses. That is a tall order, but it can be done! I believe!!!
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).
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?
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.
When this question came up, I had to check out the JMU site for their W-L record, and wondered how they could give up so many points and still be 4-3... but as someone might say, 'yea, but are we winning?'
I'm ready coach! Loved that snippit of LJS gettin' in their faces... he may sound quiet, but the man has command!
