Agree on all points. Their recruiting dead zone didn't stop them from kicking ass from the 70's through the 90's. He could have got them there but as someone mentioned earlier, so could Earl Bruce have with us. Like most (all?) great programs, just too impatient.

One of my favorite Buckeyes ever. Archie is my favorite but he could tie with a few others to be number two on that list. There is absolutely no quit in this guy and that says a lot about a person. Go Bucks!...and Aaron Craft!!

LSU being ranked doesn't really bother me because their 2 losses were to 2 of the top 6 teams in the country. Also, they don't really have a standout win, but neither do we. They play Ole Miss soon so it will all sort itself out anyway; just like we play Michigan St. soon.

http://washington.cbslocal.com/2013/10/08/how-many-native-americans-think-redskins-is-a-slur/

According to this poll, 90% of Native Americans don't consider the term "Redskins" offensive.

While we are at it, we could say that the term "Native American" itself is offensive as "American" is originally European. Canada agrees with this by using the term "First Nation" (Not saying that I agree or disagree.....but as long as we are on the subject).

Yeah I can't say that I agree with this. So taking this to its logical conclusion, we should get rid of affirmative action. I will surely lose helmet stickers for that comment but feel that it is worth it when responding to a Buckshot that is talking about the basis of such a policy (i.e, I didn't bring it up). Racism-it's wrong no matter the motivation or basis of it.

Hail, gosh damn you; you make reasonable points backed up by actual facts. Everything you said within the context of one game is absolutely correct. I think the part where most of the comments here are more harsh on Gardner than you is that this is not a onetime scenario with him turning the ball over. He is a turnover machine back at full capacity after being broke for the Minnesota game. Braxton is the opposite and his last game was the exception, not the rule that is Gardner's play with the turnovers.

Muse, I understand what you are trying to say about giving intelligent women who know football a chance, but by your own admission this is not about women and more about their credentials. You already said "how many women have been given that opportunity to coach, play, or be ADs". Pollack said he wanted people with that experience and if women don't have the experience then I guess they don't have it. We could argue that they should maybe have more opportunities to have those experiences but that is another topic. The fact that they don't have those experiences is all he was saying; and there are plenty of qualified men who do. As a side note there actually are a few major women ADs out there so they would qualify under his scenario.

Squirrel Master, your logic is very skewed. If what you are saying is true then we should not have blamed 9/11 on extreme Muslim fanatics. There are plenty of extreme Muslim fanatics that are offended by us blaming 9/11 on them. They blame it on fighting a holy war and us having bases in the Middle East next to their holy sites. (For the record this is not political talk, just an example). You never let others justify what is acceptable; then you lose everything. Listen to others that are reasonable yes, but if an extremist says they don't like something, you don't respond to it. I'm not saying Ponder is an extremist, but my point is that you don't judge something as offensive if some people are offended or not. You need to stand by your own convictions. I don't care (and neither does Pollack apparently) if someone is offended by something I truly believe in. For the record I don't agree with him but I respect his opinion and he should not take back what he said just because someone was offended by it. This country has gotten so sensitive.

I think the Badgers are very fundamentally sound and I love watching them play. They are VERY efficient. Always a great team, which is hard to do, ESPECIALLY with their talent. Bo Ryan is a great coach in my opinion.

Comment 20 Aug 2013

Not to be a grammar Nazi but it's would have, not would of. A lot of people hear would've and think that it's would of. Sorry, I'm not trying to be a dick but it's similar to when you have something in your teeth; you want someone to tell you. Anyways, I completely agree with you on Mullens and Koufos. Also I think Sully will really fill a big need on the Celtics now that they have traded away most of their stars.
