Not compared to Ohio, Pennsylvania, or the southern states.  MIddle of the road.  

Be nice to see these full rankings per capita: http://www.sportingnews.com/nfl/story/2013-09-18/nfl-players-state-by-state-breakdown-california-florida-louisiana-texas-south-ca

I'll see your Zidane move and raise you a very recent Juan Mata: https://mediacru.sh/uQYP_1X5dCVO/direct

Exactly, +1.  And each situation is always unique with regard to players, coaches and schedule.  From the title, I was hoping for a more in-depth analysis of the actual team vs. our competitors, along with the author's prediction.

Great game!  I'd feel a bit jobbed if I was Russia, though, that disallowed goal was brutal.  

And yup, TJ Oshie was amazing, and, also yup, so weird that he could just keep shooting!

<begin grumpy old man rant>  Just because everyone else is doing it doesn't mean you have to as well.  

I work on web & mobile, and user experience trumps flashy in my book.  As others said, though, change is always tough at first, so I'll also give it some time before making a final verdict, but seems harder, not easier, for me to use at this point.

I also most certainly would have been VERY happy to keep mixing in screens and other short passes to Philly.  He was much improved in YAC and showed he could even break one every now and then.

One-loss Michigan State was 4th in the BCS (including both human polls) heading into the bowls, so def could happen.

Yeah, though stupid, I can see where the confusion comes from.  Ecstasy is supposed to contain MDMA, which is in the amphetamine family.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MDMA

Correction, sir, the real power is with the Trustees, and the Governor, alumni + state organizations that appoint them, not the AD.  The Trustees appoint/review/fire the university President and oversee the universities priorities at a high level, and by extension the AD and the athletic program.

Maybe picking nits, but Conley was on the two-deep all season at Doran Grant's corner spot, not safety.  Anyone hear about him moving?  I remember hearing great things about him, and making the two-deep as a true-freshman is impressive indeed.  

One thing, though, is that he's apparently not played a down and likely to redshirt.  Did Doran Grant play every single defensive snap, or did someone else sub instead of Conley?  Quite notable either way, no?

Are you sending him that link?  Even if he refuses to admit it, he might watch it and it might help him to know a) he's not alone and b) he has other options.

Problem is, as you very neatly laid out, the OL play will likely be far diminished next year and his numbers will almost definitely take a dive as a result, not to mention a much increased chance of his getting hurt. 

If I'm Braxton, with a young son to care for, a 4-year $2.75 million contract sounds really good given all of the above.  

I selfishly hope he stays, but I'll understand if he leaves.

He publicly downplayed it, but didn't he have some choice words for Manziel coming off the field and bench him right after that?  

Sumlin could have said "there's no place for that here", so def not perfect, but I think you might be being a little hard on him.  Tressel also publicly defended his guys, preferring to deal with things out of the media eye.  Is he also on your list of most disliked coaches?
