Well, we went to the game with our kids... Had to keep some semblance of decorum to not be sleeping on the hotel floor... :)

Born in Shelby, life long fan; the only college anyone in my family has ever attended. graduated from tOSU and joined the Navy. Spent 6 years if that on the east coast, then moved to DC, spent 6 years as a government contractor. Married a Wisconsin alumni, and moved north to the dairy state.

I agree. I was by no means an elite athlete, but the difference between my sophomore and junior/senior years was huge. I think this is where those underrated 3* come from, kids who haven't attended all the camps because they didn't have the measurables as freshman and sophomores. That being said, have we offered LeBron Jr. yet?

They're so bad here in Wisconsin, I had to buy some chickens and guinea hens to keep the little fuckers in check so they don't give Lyme disease to my kids and dog, like they did last year. You haven't lived until you've had to dig them out of your skin using the car cigarette lighter and a crappy Swiss Army knife on a camping trip. God, I hate those things

Nope. Just drinking the Kool Aid that a return to Alvarez ball will make them more competitive at the elite level.

Sorry, but Florida wins that game 9 out of 10.  They were faster at the skill positions and nastier in the trenches. Troy Smith spent a good portion of the game scrambling for his life. A healthy Ginn helps, but he's not taking every kickoff to the house, and isn't the greatest receiver.

When camping out for tickets used to be a thing, they would give everyone a number, and then pick a random starting point. If you did this with per item limits, you'll fix 98% of the problem.

Like Pryor? With his speed he would have been a nightmare at that spot.

tebow and Sanchez are both serviceable at best QBs that aren't going to win games themselves, but can do decent enough in the right situation. This might be as good of a situation as he could land in. I find it impossible to hate on someone who is obviously working hard to achieve his goals.

I watched all the UW games last season (my wife is an alumni). He was terrible in every single game. With what they have on the O-line he shouldn't need to make plays with his feet often, but even when he had time, his throws were inconsistent at best. I have no idea where that performance a couple of years ago against us came from. They have 2 incoming QBs that they're excited about,  because they really don't like Stave.

I've seen 3 golf pros over the years to try and help my awful fairway wood play. I got a few pointers that, when I'm thinking about it, help some. But 3 beers/scotches into the round, I completely forget that stuff, and hack divots and worm burners until I give up and just use the damn 3 iron. I'm Guessing that something similar happens to QBs when under pressure, you forget whatever it was you were taught, and revert to your natural motion. (I'm sure Tebow is working more on his throwing motion than I am on my golf swing, so maybe there's more hope for him)
