His actions are not the norm.
I was thinking the same thing. If there were two males involved, my guess would be that the actions of the person on the right would warrant just as much, if not more, legal issues than the actions of the person on the left. But like I mentioned in the post above, I am not sure what was said and what happened prior to her raising her fist.
Definitely not defending his actions but didn't she load up in a threatening manner with the right hand first then after he restrains her, she punches him with the left? (Obviously, I know that even though she swung first, it gives him no right to swing back). Granted, she could have felt threatened and that is why she raised her fist to begin with, but, man, just excuse yourself from the situation. I am sure both parties involved regret how they acted, or at least I hope that they do.
Did Herman go to Oregon? I know Urban did during his time at ESPN. Anyways, coaches do this all the time. It makes no sense to get upset at Herman over it.
Upset about Herman talking to Alabama not about the fact that we have another thread about it.
If this makes you upset, you need to take a step back and reevaluate. Maybe sit the next few plays out.
So, the whole "the Royals will start at every position" freakout was a little overblown?
Yea, I'm a dumbass
There's this team in the West... Golden State I think? Anyways, I heard they are the team to beat in that conference.
Not making an excuse, just calling it how I saw it. If that game is played with something more important on the line, I think Bama wins 7 out of 10.
Eh, Richt and Stoops probably would be ranked pretty close to each other, after thinking about it more. You just don't hear his name being thrown around as part of the elite coaches in CFB like Stoops is, despite having very, very similar resumes over the past several years.
That's a fair list. Though, I think Stoops and Miles would fall in the top-10 to 15 for me, right now, as I think they should be doing more than what they have been doing at their respective schools as of the last few years. Other than that, our lists are pretty similar.
I didn't say they were not good coaches and I did not say that they were not, at one point, in the top 5 of their profession. I just think they have received vastly more credit than they deserve in the past 10 or so years. After losing in the NCG, Oklahoma has been mostly unimpressive (with the exception of a bowl win over a sleepwalking Bama team) and not really a factor in the NCG discussion. USC can't even win the SEC East despite the SEC East being down for quite a few years and has pretty much been relegated to a mid-upper tier bowl game and anywhere from 2-6 losses a year.
If I had to pick the top-5 in college football right now...
1. Urban Meyer
2. Nick Saban
3. Mark Dantonio
Take any of Art Briles, Gary Patterson, Chris Petersen, Gus Malzahn or, as I mentioned below, Bobby Petrino. I also think Mark Richt and, gasp, Jim Harbaugh get some consideration.
For one thing, his teams get better year after year. Louisville went from 9-4 then to 11-1. Arkansas went 5-7, 8-5, 10-3, 11-2. And I would argue winning 10 games at Louisville and Arkansas a combined 4 times in 9 years is pretty impressive. He has had the #1, #3, #4, #12, #14, and #16 ranked scoring offenses in the country.There may be 5 coaches better than him but then again there may not be. Who would be in your top 5?
As much as I hate to say it because I think he is an awful human being from what I can tell, Bobby Petrino is probably in the discussion to be included in the top-5 today.
I think Stoops and Spurrier are the two most overrated coaches in CFB.
What kills me is that if they call the PI on Miami earlier in the game or if they correctly call the third down catch on the sidelines a catch, we win without going to OT.
How about this one:
Said it for months ... When you ask Harbaugh crappy, lazy questions, you'll get crappy, lazy answers. Ask better questions people.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) July 1, 2015
What would be the point in pushing him out now rather than letting him get a degree and then asking him to transfer?
Yea, they are at 85 now including the grad transfers and the three walk-ons now on scholarship. 84 is Pipkins leaves.
They are at 85 for the fall. Losing Pipkins drops them to 84. They are over for 2016 without accounting for attrition or medical hardships but larger attrition numbers are expected when a new regime comes in. Pipkins is a senior so he was going to be gone in '16 no matter what so he has no effect on the '16 class.
This post is way off base. Michigan is at the 85 number right now including Pipkins. Also, Pipkins would be a senior so he would not affect the 2016 class whatsoever. Now, Pipkins could have been pushed out to make room for a grad transfer or someone who would be on campus this fall but as you mentioned they just declined a transfer. So, if he was in fact pushed out to make room for someone, it is for a transfer that we do not know about yet but it definitely not for a kid in the '16 class.
Even with a good Loving, I am guessing fringe tournament team. I still think 2016-17 will be the year we get back to competing for league titles.
Damn near all of the members of the Ohio State community that I know would be absolutely horrified if a head coach here at Ohio State did what JoePa did. None of them would blindly support a man because he "legally" did the right thing. Just because they rival us in size does not mean that we are the same.
I couldn't help but think about Hernandez when he said "Bill Belichick never walked into my office saying 'hey, I need a really good pain in the ass in my program."
We just won it all. I guess we need something to complain about.
