Nice read, thanks for sharing/

Jimbo would gain a lot of respect nation wide if he would just kick him off the team.  He already has his NC and recruiting is through the roof.  Kick him off and make a statement.

Unfortunately, that will never happen, and some NFL team will make him a Top 5 pick, regardless of the off field issues.

Just saw a clip of Jimbos interview yesterday, and he said, "let's not forget, he's just a sophomore."  Coach, he's a RS Sophmore on the football team, meaning he's supposed to be a junior in school (who knows how many credits he actually has, but he's 3 years out of high school).

My point is that what it will come down to in court.  If you've seen or heard Rusty Hardins comments, that's how they are planning the defense case.  I 10000% agree with you, that he is a machine who has no business beating a child-you left out the fact that the child had defensive wounds on his hands.  As a father of 2 kids under 3, it boggles my mind how anyone could ever hit a child.

I see both sides of this.  It's becoming a disturbing trend in this country of being found guilty by the mob before ever stepping foot into a courtroom, which is a problem in this country where right or wrong, everyone is guaranteed a right to a fair trial.

However, in this case, where AP has admitted to "Whooping" his kids, it's clear this is going to come down to interpretation.  Was it old school discipline or was it abuse?  I have 2 kids, and I'd find myself guilty if I ever did anything to them for them to look like those pictures.  I don't think the Vikings have much choice.  It's all about public perception for the team and the sponsors.  They need to sell tickets and products.  Just look at Tiger Woods.  He didn't do anything illegal and was dropped by just about every sponsor except Nike and Trojan.

This actually isn't a bad idea.  Not just for the B1G, but for the Power 5 in general.  Have each Power 5 paired with a different mid major conference (B1G-MAC, PAC 12-MWC, ACC-AAC, etc), and do this exact thing for all conferences.  Then, the halve nots wouldn't be completely left out.

man does that bring back memories.  I haven't had one of those in a very long time.  Throw in some Tony packos pickles and you got yourself a party.

Comment 16 Sep 2014

Ok-but every article on 11W so far says Alexander is being recruited as an H-Back.  So is he being recruited to play the H-Position, or as an H-Back? (which would make sense given Rivals has him listed as a TE).

He's only going to get better.  The KSU game is exactly what they needed to build confidence.  Let's just hope Herman keeps calling games like that and J.T. should be in for a good year.  It's amazing what happens when you get your athletes the ball in space-and it doesn't have to be 40yds down field!!!

I'll do one!!   He's going do one!!!

In all seriousness, I will most likely end up at Lowes, probably no Bed, Bath and Beyond though.

Comment 16 Sep 2014

It's tOSU and it shouldn't matter, but I don't think the way the schedule was set up did the line any favors.  I know there's only so much flexibility when making schedules, but starting with Navy and Va Tech is a tall ask of any line, let alone 4 new starters.  I think more than anything, the line, J.T., and the offense as a whole gained a lot of confidence against KSU, and that can go a long way.

Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.

I feel like there is talk out of both sides of the mouth.  On one hand, there is the population shift means there is less talent to recruit from in the North so the league needs to look South and West.  On the other hand, Kentucky and Tennessee is raiding Ohio and Pennsylvania for talent.  So which is it?  If the South has all the talent, than why are SEC teams coming North?

Both are just excuses in my opinion.  Like mentioned above, the conference has always been top heavy, with surprise teams sprinkled in.  The Lower tier has no desire, nor had they ever, in being consistently competitive.  With the autonomy given to the Power 5, I think the top half of the B1G really needs to sit down with ND and look at making a new 8 team conference, and let the rest be absorbed into the AAC and MAC

I'd be fine with scarlet pants thrown in with the regular uniforms, just not in this style.  That would provide enough alternate options where the Chrome Unis wouldn't always have to be used in primetime.
