Going back to the play before the big run, I think Cardale must have mistaken the name of Alabama's star safety as "Land on Collins".  And he did...

I always enjoy seeing the two Bama Brunettes right after Zeke scores...they're pretty, even thought they are NOT smiling.

Doesn't anyone remember a guy named Mariano Rivera?  If you were an opposing Manager, and you looked out of your dugout and saw Rivera on the mound, that pretty much meant you were going to lose the game.

I'm also going to say Gretzky and Jordan to round out my top 3.

Honorable mention, Earl Campbell.

Most dominant over a short term: Orel Hershiser, 55 straight scoreless innings in 1988.  Talk about getting into a groove.

Interesting there is no mention of Tracy Sprinkle.  Actually, I have no idea if he is a good enough player to actually compete for playing time on the DL, even in a game for which Bosa is not available.  But I wonder, has he been completely written off simply because of what turned out to be some minor off-the-field trouble?  

Seems to me we've made that mistake before, with a guy named Jones.

I made the grave mistake of using my real email address to register 

As if one needs to use their real email address on the internet for Russians to find you...

Thanks to all who have replied, and for your understanding about the mix-up.  I certainly hope that Todd Rundgren will be around for a long time to come.

I do feel a sense of loss after my neighbor's passing, but it is seeing the grieving of his immediate family that has really been harder, and nowhere near as difficult for me as for them.  He was neither ill nor what we would think of as elderly, so his death was quite unexpected, and has left a lot of people in shock.  At least the healing can begin now.

The song "Lucky Guy" has long been an inspiring favorite for me, and I will always think of John whenever I hear it again.

Because humans never would do that, especially kids, right?

Actually, I don't know that dogs don't pee in pools, maybe they do.  But I do know that when they do pee, it usually has more to do with marking their territory, which they probably wouldn't try to do while swimming.

Sorry about the misunderstanding, but unless there has been a very strange coincidence, Mr. Rundgren is still with is.  I did not mean to make anyone think he had passed, I only wanted to use his song as a tribute to someone not well known but well deserving.

If anyone can suggest how I might edit the original post so that Todd's image is not visible, that would be much appreciated.  Feeling kinda stupid right now.

Sounds good at first, but when I really think about it...

Well, ok, if I'm seeing winged helmets or a "white out" crowd, then let 'em have it!

Thank you for posting this AB.  That album was a favorite of my aunt, who was very, very special to me.  I remember listening to it with her many times.

"Sunday Morning Comin' Down" was written by Kris Kristofferson and originally recorded by Ray Stevens, and also by Johnny Cash, according to Wikipedia.  But Ms. Anderson's rendition was second to none.

What, no comments here about the article that comes after the Harbaugh story (or, at least when I viewed it)? About a guy who is basically a nobody, but is nonetheless willing to look past Jennifer Lawrence's imperfections.

Thanks for the reply.  So just a coincidence, but an intriguing one, I think.

Comment 31 Jul 2015

Maybe I missed something, but seeing the picture, does DJ think perhaps one Mr. Sprinkle will be getting his big chance now?

Comment 28 Jul 2015

Well written by the OP, thanks!  I agree, if Braxton is playing, then Braxton will be a factor, you can count on it.  He will get yards and touchdowns, or other guys will just because he's on the field.  Sure I will continue to miss him as the Buckeye QB, but that position will be in good hands, and whoever is under center will be looking for No. 5.

Comment 27 Jul 2015

He could help them.  Dantonio has been getting a lot out of guys like Frank.  Best of luck to him.

Comment 26 Jul 2015

Actually, the only Florida fans I've known (just a handful) have all been very classy, as it happens, and not one of them talked trash after their team beat the Buckeyes in the desert.  So I'm not going to do that now that they have fallen on hard times, but it doesn't bother me either.

I'm waiting to see the rest of the Pac 12 finally stuff the Ducks and their up-tempo offense.  Stanford and Arizona have been able to do it, now I'm looking for USC and UCLA to follow.
