Auburn's secondary is suspect but LSU couldn't seem to adjust and hit open receivers. Other teams should be able to exploit that going forward.

I think there is a difference between the best catch and the most critical. Holy Buckeye was critical and impressive but Brown's was better from a difficulty  stand point.

Agree. I was in Tulsa for the 83 game and the fans there were great. I was at the Texas game in Columbus their fans were also great, and I made sure to say hello and wish them well; congratulating them afterwards. I was glad they won the NC since we couldn't. 

Here's another great article:

They're obviously using the free internet while sampling products in some Denver shops and it is clouding their judgement...

Great write up, thanks.  I really like the animated gifs where you freeze it for a moment and add in graphics to show what o watch; for us less football aware guys it makes it easier to understand and learn. One request, when you name players to watch could you also give their number? That helps identify who to watch. 

Again, really appreciate the articles; they help me learn more about the game and play calling.

I hear you brother. Growing up an Army brat and then joining the Navy made me conflicted, though Navy is my team since I also wore blue and gold. Now, when I got accepted into TTUN's grad school, that was a real problem. Fortunately a better school came through and I was save date agony of living in TSUN. Of course, my late father grew up in TSUN but had the good fortune to leave and never return.

I have to think that Urbans' respect for Coach Stoops, kept the Buckeyes from scoring at the end. If this had been meat chicken on the field, I would hope Urban punches that last drive in. 

Respect aside, as much as I like humiliating TTUN, a feeling no doubt they reciprocate, I prefer not risking an injury on meaningless points.Unless it is a team like Oregon, who has shown they can score in seconds, take a knee, call it a day and get ready for next week.

The good news about the penalties is most seemed to be due to inexperience. Fix some of the confusion on the line and the false starts should go away; as for the holding you do it until it starts getting called; just be less blatant. Unsportsmanlike conduct should never happen, however, that's a generally also a mental miscue; although I don't recall the exact circumstances yesterday.

I've trolled around with some a bit when it's a slow day at work; my best is over an hour and having the guy scream obscenities at the end.

Here's a good writeup on Ars Technica of some masterful trolls:

He basically forced me to take a picture

The last time someone tried to force me to take a picture their camera wound up on the ground.  Just saying...

I can understand the NCAA's need to get tough on these entitled athletes. These were school supplies they bought, not essentials like a new ride, fancy clothes or the things needed to keep up appearances. Let them buy school supplies with scholarship money and the next thing you know they will go to class and stay in school to graduate; rathe than focusing on the important things like winning games.

IMHO, you have an unproven, expensive vessel that may have been designed and constructed for all of the wrong reasons. The technology is really cool, but the old engineering tenet is that form should follow function. I believe this is the case here, as well.

It could prove to be a useful platform to test  technology so second generation vessels can incorporate what we learn from the Zumwalt class. The Navy did that a lot with the early nuke subs, some were essentially engineering experiments that didn't necessarily pan out but provided valuable lessons for follow on boats.

Plus, I think it is cool that Adm. Elmo Zumwalt was honored the same way as other great target drivers, er destroyermen...
