any list without george costanza at the top is wrong forever
im lactose intolerant so i use protein isolate from dymatize, which i like a lot. i agree that too much protein probably doesn't help a lot (and could even lead to kidney stones), but according to my broscience degree i think one gram per pound of lean bodyweight is still useable. 140 grams of protein is still about two and half times the recommended daily allowance, so supplementing probably isn't a bad idea as long as you're actually needing it because of regular exercise.
i also use creatine, which has about fifty conflicting studies as to its effectiveness. but it is proven safe and is pretty cheap so whatever. ill take the 5 grams a day and pretend its maxing out my bench
ive got an article about this tomorrow, but ill point out here as well that montee ball ran the ball 664 times over the course of the 2011-2012 seasons, more than any other player in cfb. note that bielema doesnt seem to be advocating for snap limits to decrease the amount of blows to the head that RBs sustain
this comment has been repeated a lot, and it's really odd to me for a few reasons:
first, the new site was needed because the platform that we were using was ridiculously outdated. i know people are complaining about various bugs with the new site, but that seems to ignore the fact that the old one oftentimes had them too (sometimes major ones). as jason and company continue to refine the system, loading/searching/etc will be faster and easier.
second, the publishing platform that we were using on the old site sucked huge donkey balls. i hated it, it was hard to work with, and it was just generally slow as hell. the new website isn't perfect in that regard but holy crap it is a giant step up from what we were wrestling with as writers.
third, i really, really, REALLY don't understand the complaints about not being able to find articles or the insinuation that some of the changes were done to increase traffic through more clicks. the layout of the site is incredibly similar to what we had (and if anything the changes decrease the amount of clicks you need to get to information), and you can find literally every article posted simply by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking on "more."
i dunno. mobile/ipad issues are legit complaints, and i welcome any and all constructive suggestions for tweaks we can make to the site, but some of the things people are complaining about are baffling to me.

this seems... oddly specific
i'll say the same thing that i did when we threw up a buckshot for gene smith's involvement in the "you can play" effort:
it's huge news. and it's legit college football news that is relevant to both college football at large and to ohio state. we're a college sports news site, and if we don't at least make a passing mention of the biggest news story in college sports right now then we're not doing our jobs.
just because something's controversial or might piss some people off means that we can ignore it if it's relevant. i mean, look, if you're worried about arguments or bad feelings i guess we should just refrain from discussing any losses whatsoever and autocorrect "luke fickell" to "kittens and skittles" in every comment thread
obviously what rodriguez went through and did was courageous, and of course i respect that. i've got tons of friends and coworkers who either have been or are in the military, and their sacrifice is beyond anything that i'll ever do.
but you're totally missing my point; there's no metric, no bravery thermometer that we can refer to when we see something that takes guts. people saying that sam being gay and out is brave doesn't make what rodriguez did any less so. michael sam coming out as gay is still a huge, and i guess it doesn't matter whether you think so or not. the fact that most people would say that it is makes it so.
i'll put it this way: if you want to be angry that it's a big deal that a person simply stating their sexual orientation gets some people really upset and other people really surprised and excited, then yeah. that kind of pisses me off that's the case too.
michael sam is brave because there are literally millions of homophobes and bigots in this country and elsewhere that look at him like he's less of a human being because of his sexual orientation. to publicly declare that he's gay right before he enters the process to become part of the most popular, widely watched and followed sport in the US, thereby opening himself up to unending insults and threats, is brave.
no one on this site has ever had their lives scrutinized in the way michael sam is going to have his scrutinized, simply for stating that he's gay. it takes an incredible amount of guts to even consider doing what he's done.
if you can't at least acknowledge that, while sam's risk isn't the same as someone who fought for their country, is still an amazingly huge and brave step for someone in his position to take publicly, then i honestly feel bad for you.
because if that's the case then you'll never be able to appreciate any act of courage less than someone shooting a gun.
