Ticket prices, expensive concessions, parking costs, etc, etc etc.... vs a HD DVR version watched 30-45 minutes later with limited commercials but replays, my own ulimited snacks and a few beers. 

Its hard for me to justify spending that amount of cash too frequently. 

I'll go more frequently when my kids are away at college, or married. But then wife will have blue hair, and the millennialist will complain I don't stand or cheer load enough.

that's right Jim, most universities have had player cover-ups for murder and violence against women....

This is where the NCAA should take control and do what makes sense for their players. 

if the dates don't work for the NFL, who cares? Extend the dates for NCAA players to return. Or put on their own combine for players and invite NFL teams to attend. IMO the college football administrators should stop relying (or caring) what the NFL thinks or says.

No one here in Knoxville Ann Arbor wants to admit it, but they shouldn't sleep on this version of Appy State. They have a really good running game, a solid dual-threat QB, plus they return their entire defense from last year's 11-win team. The crowd at Neyland probably won't be as raucous, since they're playing on Thursday night instead of Saturday night. Could be interesting.

Landon quit on the team. Go back, read the articles at the time and understand where the team was in trying to qualify. The were in a tough spot. Then he quit. The situation was dire. The team rebounded and got hot without him. The WC announcers are like the ESPN/ABC announcers doing Buckeye football games. They talk to the 90% of casual fans, and really don't know the details and nuances like the 11w family. They know the stars. They don't know Collier and Burrow squared off in the circle drill during spring practice. The easy comments are to disagree with Jurgen because of the Landon name and his success. Jurgen told Landon, if you quit now, I won't consider your past history and success in evaluating you for the WC team. It will be strictly what you bring talent wise. Then Landon shows up fat and in poor form for the final camp, he's out. Tough call, but absolutely the right call.
