And that's certainly your prerogative, but they still probably made the best long term decision for the team. Real fans would rather see the team win a championship in the summer, than see him play some random game in November.
But it turns out that isn't the end goal. In college football it pretty much is because you have to in order to make the playoffs. In the NFL, players often sit out games 15 or 16 on teams that have clinched or on awful teams that are out. No reason to care about a random game in April.
I still can't believe this is even a question. If I knew my coach wasn't taking the optimum strategy for being prepared to win a championship, I would be pissed.
I don't see anything wrong with any of this. The coaches back then were idiots, taking a worse strategy to avoid appearing "weak" is just dumb. And now players are trying to make the most money for the least amount of effort? Isn't that literally what everyone is always trying to do in a capitalist economic system? If you could find a job where I worked half as much and made twice as much, who would turn it down? Also I believe MLB gets paid a lot more than anyone due to lack of salary cap.
Matching Samuel in the shuttle is pretty impressive though. Being able to cut and accelerate is closer to what he has to do as a WR anyways.
Curtis with a 4.31 unofficially. That is blazing.
Love the socks on these unis.
Felt appropriate to bump this thread tonight. Nice call on the unis. I think the socks are the best part to be honest.
I don't think so, he doesn't have great knee drive on his stride so he always looks like he is running in soft sand. He maintains his top end speed well, but he doesn't have great top end speed so someone can run him down if they also have good speed endurance.
I think it likely comes down to who wins The Game. Harbaugh will win COY if they win, Urban if we win. Maybe Riley from the West could steal it if they win out, but other than that. I think it is between us and them.
He's got a shot at the Pro Bowl if he keeps up his pace over these first couple games.
I'll bet they would put up as strong a defense as anyone.
Weber seems quicker in tight spaces while Elliot had the home run speed at the second level and never got run down from behind. For efficiency's sake the quickness is better because he can hit smaller holes more quickly, but it might limit the 50+ yard runs against teams with good secondary speed.
Jeez just saw another knock in the head for Hyde and didn't return after it. Again, I have no idea if there was anything to it, but I swear these guys just get pummeled. Not a surprise that so many end up with CTE or other similar issues later in life.
Welp obviously I was wrong and couldn't be happier. May have just been evaluated, or maybe he was just winded from running by all of the defenders so fast.
I don't have any inside info and we'll see on this next series if he comes back out, but he left the game right after it and like I said, I didn't see him out there afterwards.
Really talented, hate to see injuries cost someone a chance to be a star (Shazier is in that boat too).
He hit his head pretty hard on his last big run and I don't think I saw him in there for the last few plays. Hopefully didn't get another concussion so soon after that last one.
With so little information available I am not sure how anyone can give a clear statement of support either way. In a general sense I am glad that the football coach does not control the actions of the school. However it may also be the case that he feels that there is insuffcient evidence to show that the code was actually violated or maybe a suspension for so long is an excessive punishment for the violation. Without more information it is impossible for anyone to definititively say who is right or wrong.
Tate with a great throw on the run to his off hand and picked up a first down. Had a ball tipped earlier by a late blitzer, but has looked really good. Accurate with great touch and a shifty runner.
Lindsey is out, but Tate just made a sick stutter move on a scramble. Gave a subtle shake and the defender practically fell over and he gained like 6-7 more out of it.
EDIT: And here is video of it.
I just hope the men's 10k isn't as doped as the women's one was. I guess we'll probably never know for sure because they seem to be so far ahead of the testers that no one gets caught.
Had some friends do both recently. Eloped for a tiny wedding out west and then came back and threw a large backyard party with a live band, food, and booze.
