I never really have that much off time because of football but when I do get time off I really enjoy wrestling. Wrestling has been really helpful with improving my footwork and conditioning. I think wrestling really did help me out with football, a lot.

Can you imagine having to wrestle a 6'9" giant in high school?  I never wrestled and have heard on more than one occasion that a low center of gravity is advantageous, but I gotta believe that at least a small part of you, even if only for a moment, has to be like "son of a ..." when you see someone his size step onto the mat opposite you.

Although I would have enjoyed seeing how Dann's and Miller's gaming prowess translated to the non-virtual football field, I like the Chryst hire.  His offenses at UW were quite productive when he was OC and hopefully he will continue to field competitive (championship game performance aside) teams like we've come to expect from UW.

Looks like Cam Johnston in disguise...so that's what punters do when they're not punting.

Think about it: A guy challenges you to a fight outside a bar in the back alley. It's a snowstorm, but before the guy squares up, he takes off his shirt and pants. That dude is crazy, and chances are you do not want to fight a naked, crazy man in a snowstorm in a back alley behind a dive bar. The fight is essentially over before it began.

Great point.  By any chance, does this hypothetical crazy man look like this dream-haunter from a post a few weeks back?

Devin Smith made a fantastic catch in the end zone last week that many receivers would have dropped or failed to get both feet in bounds.  Against Navy he had the game changer reception we desperately needed for an 80-yard TD. 

Not to mention the tremendous one-handed grab against Miami last year, the eventual game winner against Michigan State two years ago and the fingertip touchdown against UM last year.  Devin definitely seems to have a knack for making the tough catch.  The problem seems to be he drops too many "routine" balls.  Perhaps it's just a lapse in focus?  Needless to say it'll be interesting to see what happens the rest of the way.

Couldn't help myself, especially given recent events. Now if someone well versed in video editing could somehow put Noah's head on Euphegenia Doubtfire's body we'd really be on to something!

I can see why such a policy would be beneficial but the HS requirement kind of sucks for infrequent posters/commenters who occasionally like to chime in *cough...like me...cough*.   I can get behind a length of membership provision...a probationary period if you will.  It would definitely cut down on the number of people who create an account just to tell Fickell to go &*$# himself.

No need to apologize...just hit a nerve I guess. I can be as emotional as anyone so I can relate.  I've just always really liked the way Beamer coaches his teams.  It just seems he has this great great lunch-pail mentality.   His teams often aren't flashy, but damn are they fundamentally sound, especially on special teams.

To me, this is a case of getting 100% outcoached, by a guy who has permanent stroke face.

Really?  It wouldn't have been sufficient to just say OSU was 100% outcoached and leave it at that?  His "stroke face" is from a serious burn injury he received as a child.  I'm as disappointed as anyone about how the team I love played yesterday but can't we have more class than this?  Beamer is a hell of a coach and VT is lucky to have him...he's not the longest tenured coach for nothing.

Just wanted to say it again...congrats to Brady Taylor and family.  As a kid who grew up in Ohio, I was one of many who dreamed of growing up to play for the Buckeyes.  Brady actually gets to live that dream.  Best of luck to him...I know I'll enjoy watching his career.
