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.

Sounds like excuses to me. I will grant you that there are rare cases where these conditions are present for some people, but the vast majority of people that are fat are themselves responsible for it.

Comment 15 Oct 2013

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.

Comment 14 Oct 2013

That depends on what happens with other teams, as we do not control our own destiny like other teams do. If 'Bama and Oregon both win out, there is absolutely no way we play in the Championship game.....and it is with sorrow (but full certainty) that I say that we wouldn't deserve to either if you are comparing all three schedules.

Comment 10 Oct 2013

All of that adds up to a B. Sounds about right. We are fortunate to still be undefeated while having plenty of room to improve. Besides the secondary, that says more about our potential than anything else.

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.

Comment 06 Oct 2013

Urban, I respectfully disagree. Did you not watch last week's game against Wisconsin? How about that play in this game where he stopped short of the first down marker (and he could have run for it easy) and he threw a completion that got about 20 more yards than if he had ran it? That is just one example from this game but Braxton clearly looks to pass (and hence involve other skill players) than run. A lot of his runs tonight were called runs. I think Braxton is the ultimate weapon for what we have. You could also debate a few others (Johnny Football, Tajh Boyd, Winston from FSU maybe) but he is at or near the top.

ScarletNGray, this is so over the top that I almost think it's a fake comment. Nevertheless, you still get a downvote from me for your ignorance alone if it is real. Did you watch the game on mute or not notice Musberger's scarlet and grey tie? I think you made an honest mistake so I will leave it at a that......and a downvote of course. Lesson learned, no big deal.

 "Sports are fun when they involve villains, and nobody played that role better than Bielema."

It's really hard to say it much better than that. I would say that I hope we play them in a bowl, but that would be taking us down a couple of notches.

Comment 24 Sep 2013

Agreed CC. What's even more peculiar is that the NCAA threatened Penn State with the death penalty if they refused their current punishment, but by their own rules they had no authority to administer the death penalty since Penn State was never a repeat offender. The NCAA is SO inconsistent.
