Ordinarily I agree that there is too much apologizing and offense taken over a lot of things, but it's just not good for a team member to criticize an individual unit like that. Clearly the consensus is that what he said was accurate, but remember: how did a team that was capable of losing to Virginia Tech last year manage to surge to the National Championship? Talent surely played a role but I believe the team cohesion was the key. Accurate or not, what he said did not strengthen that cohesion.
This is exactly why those of us who were critical of the offense over the season got sick of the "relax, a win is a win" crowd. You could see this infuriatingly avoidable loss coming a mile away, and now there is a real danger of the wheels completely falling off the team.
I'll take my chances
HE REMEMBERS ME!
I think that's a Baylor-like disaster waiting to happen. Duke was awfully quiet about his "team rule violation", and rumor was it was something in the realm of sexual assault. If there's one thing that a college student, athlete or otherwise, can do to ruin their life, that's it.
Side note - why is it not bigger news that Baylor's slimy Art Briles lied about what Washington's Chris Petersen disclosed about a dismissed Huskie transfer? Thank goodness he didn't get a free tattoo instead. I will never forgive or forget the way our university was dragged through the mud over that ridiculous ordeal.
That's still a pretty big mistake that a better coach doesn't make.
$10 pissing contest, no thanks.
That pisses me off. It is IMMEDIATELY noticeable. It's somebody's job to just type these up and they can't find somebody who knows what the teams' logos look like? People can complain about bias but if the freaking committee evaluating you doesn't even know what your logo looks like you have a point. "Honest mistake, just a typo..." no freaking way, not when you're supposedly running this multi-million dollar sports event with huge stakes and implications. You don't get to make a naive mistake like that. Look at this shit too, from CBS: https://imgur.com/p46NSYO. I know, probably a strong reaction... but come on. Amateurs.
I distinctly recall missing this question on my driving exam. It makes sense now though, as a small leeway for legal underage alcohol consumption (church wine, Nyquil, etc.) and Breathalyzer measurement error.
Did you also know that in Ohio the speed limit with passengers in the bed of your pickup truck is 20 mph? Neither did I.
Hokie fans are pushing Blacksburg for Frank Beamer's last home game.
I hit ctrl+f to see if someone had already said it. I'm half laughing, half disappointed you beat me to it.
Good point, good clarification. Then it seems okay to make a joke along the lines of, "Their offense was so terrible to begin with, this won't even make a difference in their yardage on Saturday."
I think we've seen much worse than that this year. I'm ordinarily in Camp Frustrated but tonight I'm glad to be in Camp 9-0.
...The black Mizzou football players got together and made a swastika of feces on the wall of a dorm?
And what is honestly going through someone's mind when they do something like that?
Great throw to Marshall, Cardale. Any time he gets flustered he should just look at that 2014 up in the corner that wouldn't be there without him.
My internet is down and the TWC Watch ESPN app hasn't been working at all today. I'm hyperventilating.
You mean lower? There is no reason for them to be ranked behind a 1-loss team if they're 9-0 with this big win over a really good team.
Iowa is terrible they can't even put away Ind... never mind.
100% selfish: because I go to Virginia Tech and want him to come here and dominate.
Gross... Virginia Tech is a much better job.
Posted while I was typing - thanks. I need to find that clip.
Jameis was suspended for a game (I think against Clemson, where Clemson Clemsoned even harder than usual) where he actually dressed and came out with the team during warm-ups. There is a priceless shot of old Jimbo, with the most exasperated, incredulous look on his face, explaining to Jameis that he needs to go take his pads off.
