Depending on who did it, it's either an act of terrorism (Separatists) or war (Russia).  Either way, Russia is behind it as they have been supplying the separatists with weapons.  That's the reason it was reported yesterday the separatists were at the crash scene first, and didn't allow responders in until they found the black box and sent it to Moscow (this was in an early article, not sure if it's been confirmed).  I think there is a no politics policy on these forums, so I'm going to refrain from saying what I think will happen next [mod: You got to like the two yard line and fumbled. No politics means no politics.]

While I never hesitate to fire up the grill, the more I watch competitive cooking shows (Hells Kitchen, Master Chef, etc.), has made me try cooking steaks in a cast iron pan a little more often.  Reason is, the steaks stay very moist, since the juices are contained in the pan, and don't drip off.  I've also started to put a dollop or 2 of honey butter on the steak when it's finished cooking, and let it melt over top of it.  The sweetness of the butter, company with the pepper in the steak seasoning is a good combination.

I don't know about anyone else, but with the talent that has been assembled in the Front 7, I would love to see some variety in personnel, instead of the traditional 4-3 all the time, throw in some 3-4, 4-4, 5-2, etc.  I may be in the minority, but I think C Grant could be in for a big year, but that would mean Kwon wouldn't see the amount of time the Big Kat did.  The answer-figure out how to get them on the field at the same time.

A simplified approach in the secondary should do wonders, so hopefully, the front 7 can just play a down hill style and eat everything up.

Did I mention I am excited to see this Defense return to form this year???

I never understood the point of view, that everyone is wasted for 8pm kickoffs, and it's anarchy afterwards.  There are hundreds of 8pm kickoffs every year, and more than not, everything is fine.  The Game should be 3:30pm, period.  Having the 2nd half go into dusk, and then early evening, is perfect.  Under Armour makes some great Heat Gear, put some hand and foot warmers in, and sneak a flask or two of whiskey in and enjoy the show.

Green Bay, Chicago, Buffalo-none of these teams have problems playing games in cold weather, and the fans sure don't mind showing up.

Why can't college football just go the NFL route and make them 1 and 4:15pm starts?  I know it's only an hour difference, but it's just too early to expect anyone to be up in terms of energy for a game like that.  I know it's not worthy of a primetime spot, but I just hate the Noon kickoffs.  Then you look at games like the Red River Rivalry, and that's an 11am local kickoff.  That's ridiculous.  Anything that starts before Price is Right would be over should be against the law.

Nice to see this matchup regardless of the Lane Kiffin angle.  I'm still wondering though why an NFL venue in the B1G footprint doesn't start at Neutral Site matchup, like this one or the other one in Atlanta I think it is.  I know Wisky and LSU are scheduled to play at Lambeu, but that would be a pretty neat annual thing.  These other neutral site game are (surprise), just de facto home games for SEC teams, who get the benefit from the pollsters that they aren't technically homes games.

Archie deserves all of the love that comes his way, but man, the Big Kat was a monster.  The iconic picture of the Big Kat and the mirrored visor and the clip of him hitting Jones are 2 of my favorite images of Buckeye Football.

Comment 15 Jul 2014

I think the NFL has a lot more to do with it than winning titles.  In Bamas case, that's just the tipping point for these kids, but the conversation has to start with we've put X amount of players in the draft, multiple in the 1st round every year, etc., etc.

Comment 15 Jul 2014

Didn't GA Southern have even more injuries than Florida did?  No reason for a D1 school, in a power conference, especially the vaunted SEC, to ever loose to a D1AA, or whatever it's called now.

Comment 14 Jul 2014

Thinking the same thing.  Minor League Baseball does this to get people to come.  Does one of the most storied College Football Programs (like it or not) in the country really need to do this, and actually think this will bring in fans who wouldn't otherwise have already been there?  M Man referenced the Fireworks at one of the night games at the 'shoe with a picture.  It's not the act of shooting fireworks that makes no sense, it's how it's being presented, as if it was Bobble Head Thursday, Big Beer Friday, or whatever other promos the Minor League teams use.  Shoot as many fireworks off as you want, just don't stoop to the level that this brings it to by advertising it, and then stating it's an idea to bring fans in.

The lineman who runs back to Gardner doesn't know what to do after seeing that hit.  That's too funny.  You may want to help your QB up bra'!!!!

Comment 12 Jul 2014

didn't notice the camel toe-thought it was an underwear ad

Comment 12 Jul 2014

He's on there now, #4 though, which doesn't make any sense with move to TE, since Samuel is also #4 and both can't be on field at same time.

Would be pretty sick to have a stud at TE wearing a single digit.

Comment 12 Jul 2014

Does anyone think this was the plan all along for Lebron?  Leave for a few years, so Cleveland ends up with a few top picks (no one could have guessed 3 #1 overalls), then come back to play with the top talent?  Since free agents wouldn't come to Cleveland, the draft was the only real option to build, and they weren't going to be in the lottery as long as Lebron was there.   I know it's a stretch, and probably not anywhere close to reality, but something to think about.

Comment 12 Jul 2014

Don't bring in Melo.  Would be a horrible move to bring in a 1 dimensional player.  He adds nothing on the defensive side of the ball, and all he does is shoot on offense-doesn't create anything for anyone else.

Comment 12 Jul 2014

This just shows what a farce the whole SEC Speed argument really is.  Northern recruits regularly head South to play and excel in the SEC.  Yet, it's like they only get faster when they enroll in the SEC.
