What I've always found frustrating about Amir - he will have stretches of 2-3 possessions up and down the court, where he looks absolutely dominant, but then completely disappears.

Indulge me for just a moment:

Is it possible Drayton and Meyer actually told Weber that Drayton either may or was leaving?  The kid was going to be lambasted by a lot of people up there after he chose OSU, and he was certainly aware of that, which probably added to the weight of the decision for him.  Is it possible Meyer and Drayton agreed to take the heat of allegedly deceiving him, in an effort to ease some of the anger directed at the kid for leaving "home"?  Weber's tweat was short, and somewhat open to interpretation - was that on purpose?  

I don't know, but the thought occurred to me with the lack of an immediate statement from UFM.  I agree with some others who have the feeling like something just isn't adding up.

Thank you!   I've been of the same mind whenever people talk about worst loss:  wouldn't a game where you score 58 freaking points - in regulation - and lose, have a strong claim on the title of "worst loss"?

Comment 03 Dec 2014

Agree that somebody ahead needs to lose.  Is the Committee possibly thinking of the marketing of #3 TCU going against Oregon? TCU has already shown it is entirely capable of scoring 58 points in regulation and losing - but boy won't that make for great TV against the Ducks.

Just wondering - is it possible the back judge didn't pick up the play clock expiring on that FG because he had a difficult seeing it amidst all the white in the crowd?  

Comment 12 Oct 2014

I'm frankly tired - no, make that "done" - fretting over whether or not tOSU will make the playoff or get a chance to play for the national title.  A national title was pretty much viewed as THE objective last year by the masses, and unfortunately, for me, it kind of made each week of the season a bit less enjoyable - I felt more relieved by the fact they won, but savored it less b/c I was worried about the frigging polls.  After Brax went down, and I got over being sick to my stomach, I frankly felt a little more excited for the season because the expectations were suddenly reduced.  The hope of pulling it all off was still there, but there was a better sense of "reality."  Anyway, the past three games have gotten me really excited, not only because of the wins, but how this young team looked in them. From my ignorant, layperson, weekend-warrior seat, the way they are trending is very exciting.

Dude.  It's "Thom McDaniels".  Guy's kind of a legendary HS football coach in Ohio.

I've been to Wisconsin 5 times. Fantastic gameday atmosphere, but nothing about the tailgaiting really stuck out to me.  I've actually been more impressed by the actual tailgating in Bloomington, though the overall atmosphere doesn't hold a candle to Camp Randall.

I'm with you, Bro.  Guy is electric fast, but to my untrained eye, I haven't seen much as far as having that football - choose your word, sense, instinct, feel - about where to go.  He basically  goes full bore, straight ahead (which is good), but it kind of seems like we haven't seen him make any moves yet.  Conversely, a guy like Jalin Marshall, while certainly not as fast, kind of looks to me like he can feel where to move when he has the ball.  I don't know, maybe Dontre would be showing some of that if he had more touches.  All the same, I'm jacked that the Bucks have all these weapons as options.

Awesome!  When I was in jr high and HS, I would wait up until like 10 PM on Saturday nights to watch the replay of the games on the PBS station on one of those monsters.  All the games weren't on live TV back then - I shudder to think about such an existence.
