If other top programs are interested in a player, that's the kind of player we want, especially if those programs are trying to flip the player.  Competition is the name of the game.

In regard to Wallace, sometimes the guys who turn out best are the ones who have to learn proper body mechanics instead of those to whom that comes naturally.  If the physical gifts are there, then the footwork and body mechanics can be learned, along with the system and plays.

All gave some.  Some gave all.  

Never, ever forget.

I know LaVert was headed to Ohio University until a last minute offer from ttun.  I wasn't knocking Thad in the case of Burke or LaVert.  In retrospect it would have been nice to have had both of them but hindsight is 20-20.

How long did it take to place the crackers like that?

And yeah, not sure what happened in business school for some people but cutting costs is not a panacea for every ailment - it sure does make your own executive metrics to bonus more achievable though...And yeah, not sure what happened in business school for some people but cutting costs is not a panacea for every ailment - it sure does make your own executive metrics to bonus more achievable though...

The last 13 words in the above quote explain a lot of what the state of business is in the US at present.

Fumbling depends on the ball security that the individual ball carrier applies.  Except for a direct hit helmet-to-ball that would negate even the best ball security.  Who the head coach is has little to no bearing on this statistic unless for some reason ball security is not practiced or addressed under that coach at all, because it is a very, very simple concept.  

Any issue with handoffs is included in this view, because that is part of ball security.  Read option or not, good ball security is good ball security.  Make the read and make the handoff if that is the read; don't second guess your read once it is made, even if it turns out wrong.  Simple concept.

The Shoe is a special place for a game.  You also can get a group tour for somewhere around $110.00 by contacting the Athletic Department; I think you can get up to 40 people for that price and you will see the entire place, inside and out, even spending enough time on the field to run up and down it a few times (and you can bring in your own football if you want).  That breaks down to not much money per person depending on the size of your group.

I would UV you more than once if I could.  My cousins from California have given me plenty of crap over the years regarding OSU, so I know a little bit about what you say.

In addition the 11A-13A area is pretty much all students (or at least it used to be who stand for the entire game.  That is where I try to sit if possible. You may have to borrow a Student ID to use the ticket, but it is way more fun in the student areas than with the blue hairs.

Yes, I agree with Fred's feelings on that brawl.  

They could have waited until a few years later and sued Winfield for some of the bucks he made in MLB.  Brawls with Minnesota are something that seems to happen though.  I was at The Shoe for a football game against them in the early 1990s and they started a brawl in that game. 

They should stick to eating Dilly Bars.

Maryland and Rutgers have more inroads on the East Coast than the rest of the B1G.  Yes, we get some good players from there, but it will become more competitive for those players with Maryland and Rutgers being part of the B1G, especially if those schools can show that they can compete in the league.
