I work for Coke, and we do these everywhere, not necessarily Script Ohio, but whatever the local NFL, College, or HS team might be.

We've built stadiums with fake grass and stripes on the floor, basketball courts, beach scenes with sand, ponds with a working fountain.  One Salesman made a huge Football Field/Stadium, complete with 2 huge Flatscreens on each end, and behind the field, he built a locker room with Jerseys from the local University hanging up.  It was impressive to say the least.  I think it won him a trip to the Bahamas.

Very nice write up and explanation of the defense so far.  I think one thing that has also improved, and it goes along with what Saban was preaching is the tackling.  I know there are still misses, but the secondary especially is wrapping up more this year instead of going for the knockout blow.

And I never played a Cover 4 on NCAA.  Cover 2 Man mostly, and in long yardage situations or Hail Mary's, I'm bringing heat from somewhere.  My theory, you can't give up a huge play if the QB doesn't have time to let the routes develop.

burrows had a nice one late in the KSU game.

For the record, I didn't DV you.  I see what you are saying, and could have phrased what I said a little differently, but it's not like I wrote "Player X and Player Y suck and don't deserve a scholarship, lets pull a Bama and force them out."  It's there choice, as it should be, but given Dunn got 1 carry against KSU, fumbled and was pulled, and Ball saw only garbage time, I don't think it's a stretch or even an insult to state the obvious.  I meant no disrespect to either player, as I think they could both be quality backs if given the chance.  Given the depth chart and the way the carries are being distributed so far (Elliot, Samuel, Wilson, Marshall), I would think Ball and Dunn might look around to see where they can make an impact while they still have eligibility left, as every player ahead of them except Smith is an underclassman.

The social media factor is huge.  I've heard multiple radio and TV shows bring this up, and that if the technology was around 50 years ago, we'd be shocked at the things Namath, Mantle, and some of the other greats in all sports were doing.  Think about Wilt the Stilt.  Claims to have slept with 10,000 women.  Can you imagine an athlete in todays climate talking about that, or how many photos/videos would be on the web?

Just look at how Urban has handled the off field incidents over the last 3 years or so.  Hyde, Roby, Sprinkle, Spence, etc.  He's suspended them whether they are found guilty or not, just because they should have never put themselves in the situation to begin with.  Compare that with FSU and Winston, and it's sounding like it wasn't Jimbos decision to even suspend him, but that it came from the president and AD, and the article on ESPN makes it sound like Jimbo isn't very happy about it.  He should do the right thing and kick Jameis off the team.  He's clearly not getting it, and I haven't seen his transcripts, but it's pretty clear from every interview he has given, that he can't be doing well in grammar.

Exactly.  I hate to say it or see it, but I think the writing may be on the wall for the likes of Dunn and Ball.

How about option to Samuel up the middle on the read, with Wilson as the 3rd option on the pitch.

I'll sell some of my grass in the back yard that I threw my jersey on after the Va Tech game.

Clemson should be able to pick the 2 quarters he is suspended for, as the game goes on, so FSU doesn't know when they will have him.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

I figured that too, but the cops were called at least once that I know of.  You would think the Cardinals would have known something was going on.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

Stories like this are unfortunate, but you can't live your life with by "what ifs."  I played Pop Warner when I was 9-15, and I will have no problem signing my son up for the same if he wants to play.  I am comfortable with Pop Warner, not just because I played, but because of the weight limits.  Once he's too old for Pop Warner, it will be his choice.  The size difference can be a huge issue when you get out of Pop Warner into HS Football.  I couldn't have imagined lining up against some of these "kids" who are being recruited at the D-1 level.  I wanted to play HS Football, but chose not to because I just couldn't gain weight, and stuck with Basketball instead.

Well said.  There have been a lot that have been settled out of court or plead down to something trivial.

This POS Dwyer might take the cake so far.  Head-butting his Wife and breaking her nose because she wouldn't have sex with him?  Really?

This incident happened in July, and I know the wife just now came forward, but something is not adding up about that either.

great point about one of the greats to ever play baseball, who BTW played the game the way it should be played, even during All Star games.  Those hits have nothing to do with betting on baseball.  It's 2 different conversations all together.  I really hope the new commissioner looks at reinstating Rose, and making him immediately eligible for the HOF.  I

The Juice is still in the HOF?  Wow, I didn't even realize that.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

Not questioning the memory of that play.  I can see it as clear as day right now in my mind.  I just think about that every time I see it.  They even focused on it during the 30 for 30 special, and I thought then, maybe we would get an explanation from MoC, but nothing.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

He's appealing the ban, so it's obviously not handled the same way as in the pro leagues, where the player can still play while the appeal process is going on?
