Is scum STILL a "rivalry game" - because I thought a rivalry game was where the teams were pretty even and split just about  50% of the wins when they play... Scum can't claim that in what, 10-15 years or more??

Yes - they are our BITTER RIVALS, but a rivalry game??

Hahahahaaaa... I read where Pettine wanted to go after a starting QB for next year, whether it be a draft or by free agency...

Saw where he signed Josh McCown (sp?)... WTF gives here!!???  Seriously, he was like 2-10 as a starter, and the Bucs got rid of him...  Why in the hell do the Browns sign this dude???  Excuse me while I go beat my head against a door...

While I cannot say I agree that Magic is the best I have seen, I can agree that your son is one of the best columnists I have read!

Thank you!!

While I just love the huge reduction of the holding penalties, we MUST REDUCE the number of false starts.  This is a super-easy problem to fix, one would think.  You know the snap count and it's mental, clean it up.  But in our case, we really don't use the snap count.  This is even easier.  You watch the ball or the center's arm.  When either moves, you fire.

Seventeen is not bad over the course of the season, but that is a HUGE number more than the holds.  On the other hand, and trying to be somewhat positive, a false start is only a 5-yard penalty and stops the play.  A hold on the other hand is 10 yards and it CAN kill a long gain, or TD...

So you also must be keen on the Kyle Bryndza (spelling?) kicker from Plymouth, too?

My sons go to Lake Orion.  We went to Ford Field the year our Dragons beat the 'Cats for the big school championship.  Kyle had simply THE BEST LEG I have ever personally witnessed for a high school kicker, and I have seen MANY, MANY high school games.  Grew up near Cedar Point and you know how big HS football is in Ohio.

I think Kyle will have a solid NFL career.

ChicagoBuckeye, if no one likes the "one and done" of college basketball, the NCAA should step in and institute the same rules for going pro that are used for football.  I know that football is a much more physical sport, so that argument may not hold up.

What I would love to see is colleges and universities create a two-year degreed program for student athletes that plan to become a professional athlete.  Classes can be money management type - basic accounting, economy based for an individual's income, basic life skills and income management that EVERYONE needs to be successful in saving and planning for their retirement.  Too many former professional athletes end up filing bankruptcy later in life.  Hell, even Terry Bradshaw filed...

Force young people to stay for two years, if a scholarship is used, and help EDUCATE them in LIFE.
