Jump Around at Wisconsin (and taking part in the "Fuck You/Eat Shit" chant that I've seen online would be a bonus).

EEEEXXIIITT LIIIIIIIGGGHT....ENNNNNTERRR NIIIIIIIIGHT....TAAAAAKE MY HAAAAAND...WE'RE OFF TO NEVER NEVER LAND....Virginia Tech

Army/Navy game.  My dad went a couple of years ago and I would like to go to it one time.

They drafted Poopers....Braylon Edwards 2.0.  Haha the previous comment said Josh Cribbs 2.0...also not a bad comparison.

Comment 27 Apr 2017

So she said they met at the hotel, but video shows them together at a bar.  I would think if what she is alleging actually happened, she'd tell the police the truth about all of the events of the evening.  I don't know, I'm starting to believe more and more that he didn't do it.  Not that I thought for sure he did - I was taking the position of letting facts come out first.

Comment 26 Apr 2017

I don't know what to make of all of this.  Sounds like it could be bogus.  Two NFL teams seem to think so.  Even if he didn't rape that woman, being in that situation just weeks before the draft wasn't the wisest thing in the world.  You just never know what can happen.  Doesn't mean he deserves to have his life negatively impacted by a false accusation (if it is a false accusation), but, I'd avoid that situation altogether if it were me.  Of course, if he actually raped that girl, well...he'll deserve every bad thing that will come to him.

I guess if these trips really make a kid want to go there.  Don't get me wrong, I'd fucking love to go to Italy, but if I were a 5-star recruit choosing between TTUN, OSU, etc, I'd be looking at other factors before a random trip to Italy.  If I can get into the NFL and make millions, shit, I can go to Italy in the offseason.  Maybe tour all of Europe.

Indiana - night (it is on a Thursday)
Oklahoma - night
Army - probably noon
UNLV - probably 3:30
Rutgers - afternoon (noon or 3:30)
Maryland - afternoon (noon or 3:30)
Nebraska - most likely a night game
PSU - night game...has to be a night game, right? 
Iowa - 3:30 (small chance of it being a night game)
Sparty - night game (small chance of it being 3:30, maybe even noon if they suck again)
Illinois - afternoon (noon or 3:30)
TTUN - noon

Comment 18 Apr 2017

If he stays healthy, I don't see any reason why he can't break out.  I feel like the 2017 WR corps could be the 2016 DB corps in terms of breakout guys (Lattimore/Hooker last year, Dixon/??? this year).

Comment 07 Apr 2017

Do we beat Oklahoma?  Yes.
Do we slay the Penn State Nittany Kittens?  Yes.
Is this the year we blow out Sparty?  I'd say so.
Do we cream TTUN in their own building?  I don't think it'll be a creaming, but I think the Bucks will win it.
Do we win the Big Ten?  Yes.
Do we score points in the playoff if we make it there?  No doubt about it.

I think this team has the horses to win it all.  

Comment 06 Apr 2017

On the one hand - come on, Bama fans (that had a problem and were involved in this)...butthurt much?

On the other hand - probably not the best choice of locale for Deshaun.  Just sayin.  Even if it shouldn't be a problem, realize that it probably would be.

Comment 24 Mar 2017

That's after Purdue was up 8 fairly far into the first half.  Wow.  I had picked Oregon to beat Kansas in the Elite 8 in my bracket...seriously questioning that now...lol

Comment 24 Mar 2017

How did OSU beat TTUN?  Easy.  TTUN shot 36 3's against OSU and didn't make a whole lot of them.  When you pretty much base things on the 3 point shot, you can beat superior teams when you shoot it well, but you can also lose to inferior teams when you don't.  In reality, TTUN is not that good, but they went on a nice stretch where they were on fire shooting it, and it helped them win the B1G tourney and a couple of NCAA tourney games.  

Comment 23 Mar 2017

Always chuckle at seeing TTUN called "overrated"...idk though...I think the East will come down to The Game.  

PSU is so goddamn overhyped, it isn't funny.  Man, are they really living off that fluke win over the Buckeyes from last season or what!?  Reality will hit them hard this coming season.  

As far as Herman goes...if he really is overhyped, that will be exposed at Texas.  We shall see.  

Comment 23 Mar 2017

I think no damns are given about the regular season.  Especially after the Warriors won 73 games last season and it didn't translate into a championship.  Now the Cavs should at least try not to lose that #1 seed.  Not like the Cavs couldn't win an ECF series with Boston without home court...but why dick around and put yourself in that position?

Comment 22 Mar 2017

How about shorter playoffs?  Eliminate the first round of the playoffs.  Do they really need to let 16 teams make the playoffs?  That's more than half the league.  It's more of an embarrassment to not make the playoffs than it is an accomplishment to make the playoffs.  At the very least, make the first round a 

If now you have to be in the top 4 instead of the top 8 of your conference to get into the playoffs...and you have shorter playoffs...would likely fix a lot of that resting issue.  Games more critical, you don't have as much playoff basketball to prepare for...

Won't happen, just like a shorter regular season.  Preseason, sure, nobody gives a shit about that, it won't hurt their bottom line.  

I don't know how you'd incentivize games.  The only way would be to do a points system like hockey...you got X number of points for winning normal games...the "marquee" games might reward an extra point or two for winning.
