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.

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.

Big difference between being head coach and an assistant (see Luke Fickell), and he isn't even quite an assistant.  I don't think his record elsewhere as a head coach really matters for what he is doing for us.

Houston would be a much better addition than Boise State.  They are stronger in a lot more sports than Boise, they have an elite recruiting ground, and much a much better TV market.  Also I would guess that Houston will be better in football over the next decade.  Herman may or may not stick around, but what he is building won't be torn down over night.

He is one of the most improved announcers. His first couple years he was awkward and kind of sounded like a dumb jock. But has developed into an insightful and comfortable announcer. Will be great to see him on OSU games if Fox gets the B1G games.

They are very different players and won't play the same position in our offense.  They are both great players though so picking one over the other is tough.  I guess if we got Grimes then Tyjon might fit an area of need more since Grimes and DPJ are both outside guys.  Of course if we are able to somehow get all 3 you won't see me complaining.

I think it matters how it happened.  This case isn't perfectly ideal since he's been committed for a while, but at least they let him know of their intent with almost a year left before signing day.  It would have been better had they offered that straight up, but they didn't realize how well they'd be able to recruit other top RBs when he committed most likely.  If they offered a grayshirt with a month or less before signing day, then I agree, that is pretty crappy because he wouldn't have any time to find a new spot.
