I am of the opinion that they should either win big or lose. Anything else is a waste of time.
is that really an opinion? I mean Ohio is quite literally closer to Canada than Oklahoma is.
Especially as you get older. Taking a goalie's punt and hitting it back with your head when they have just punted it 70 plus yards cannot be good for your head.
I believe it was the great philosopher John Cooper who once said that an oven is dry heat too.
And frankly in their business it makes no sense to retain ties with any of these people. The players are by and large expendable and do not make a significant impact on the NFL's bottom line individually. That may not be fair to the individuals involved, but it is reality.
Keeping him busy with productive, healthy activities is probably the best thing for him now. Hopefully he can overcome adversity and keep moving forward.
Not sure why everyone is surprised about PSU going crazy for the game this week, they are still living off the high of beating their most hated rivals last week. They feel like nothing can stop them after getting that big rivalry win.
Marion County? Ugh, we should have known.
I am fine jumping on the Rutgers bandwagon, I think it is great that PSU finally has a big intraconference rival.
***Yesterday I began this noble crusade, but it will take a concerted effort by all of us to refer to Rutgers and PSU as rivals. For so long PSU has wanted to by our rivals and we just laughed, now the shoe is on the other foot between them and Rutgers. So I have made it my new mission to build the rivalry between Rutgers and PSU as much as possible, because I find it amusing. So are we all agreed? PSU and Rutgers are now the deepest of rivals.***
Navy is definitely run first second and third team, but if you look at their yards per attempt, it is usually pretty solid because the secondary doesn't stay disciplined in pass protection. So while there won't be too many chances for passes, they often hit long ones because the secondary gets caught napping. In their last game their QB was 5/7 for 117 yards, so that is more than 20 yards per completion.
I certainly don't condone these actions by Rutgers' fans, but those types of things happen in big rivalries. Fans just take it too far.

This is why:
Iowa fans are pissed (and I'd be too), but Iowa can't afford to do dick about it. Ferentz' buyout is near $14,000,000.— Vico (@ourhonordefend) September 13, 2014
Also keep in mind he has never had a coverage assignment so it is easier to run down hill when you cut the field in half.
What's funny is everyone has been bitching about the NFL suspending Gordon for longer than two weeks for a second failed test, but I guarantee if Spence gets only 2 more games added on all of the Urban haterz will be out in force.
Not much hype here with the Spence distraction, but I would love to see a big WR end up here.
Between him and Jamal Marcus we have no speed rushers left. Time to slide Dante down or have Jalyn step up. We were essentially playing with 4 defensive tackles the last two games.
Exactly, sometimes good kids do stupid things.
Just think how many passes Amir would have dropped if they ever got to play together.
Goodell's idiocy has definitely shielded the Ravens quite a bit. And when a guy who either killed someone or knows who did is your franchise's biggest hero (and you erect his statue), you know the organization's ethical make up is compromised.
Actually he called for Goodell's firing back in August, so someone else needs a fact attack.
I agree whole heartedly. While our last 3 losses are frustrating, we were leading or tied late in each game. One more defensive stop or capitalizing better early in the game and there could be different outcomes. It seems like all three times we let the other team get too far up and when we made our comeback we ran out of steam once we got caught back up.
well this could easily cut both ways. The counter argument is that they saw what we did last year when we had an OL to block and a top notch runner. Maybe their take away will be that we need some help in the running back position with Hyde gone.
Our defense was bad at one thing last night, defending TEs. Unfortunately they had two good ones and just washed, rinsed, and repeated all the way down the field. But their longest drive was 65 yards after the out of bounds kick off, so field position game could have helped some too.
I know it was close, but you can't hit a guy high and low at same time. It doesn't matter which one comes first so I think it was the right call because the OL hit him right after he got hit low. Hard to avoid in that situation and certainly not the RB's fault, but I think it was the right call.
Everyone's favorite Wildcat, Ryan Timmons, has 6 catches for 73 yards in the first half against Ohio.
