I love how the defense stepped up to stop Oregon at the goal line (#6). There seemed to be a collective, "There is no way that you are getting into the endzone" mentality by all of our defenders.

I chalk it up to the circle drill.

I think you slightly missed my point.

I think Marshawn Lynch should negotiate a contract that says, "Lynch is not required to appear at press conferences." The blame is squarely on Marshawn Lynch's shoulders unless the league is unwilling to change the terms and conditions of employment.

Have you ever looked at baseball contracts? They have some really odd things negotiated into contracts.

I would argue that regardless if journalists are professionals or not that Marshawn Lynch should have the right to not be interviewed. He should be able to negotiate a contract that says, "Lynch is not required to appear at press conferences."

While I think most reporters are good, I think Lynch is avoiding the situation where he gets provoked into saying something. He is here to play football. Let him negotiate a contract that says that. While some fans may really want to hear what he has to say, Marshawn Lynch should be given the opportunity to have privacy.

Until the NFL announces - like college football - that the head coach is responsible for all actions of the other coaches, players, and staff, this will not matter. Fine Bill Belichick $10M. It won't matter to him. Kraft will just increase his salary.

The NFL has repeatedly shown that:

$ > Morals

Would Commissioner Goodell even think twice if advertisers didn't object? Advertisers are loving the extra attention. More eyeballs for their products.

I imagine that this is all a negotiation tactic. "Hey ESPN, we just made you a crapload of money, giving you the three highest watched cable TV ratings of all time. Pony up some extra cash."

I do buy it.

The B1G has very high quality schools with nearly sterling academic reputations. Wisconsin is one of the best among the B1G. In the long run, the rigor of academics is more important. As Coach Tressel  - as any football coach - said, he viewed himself as a caretaker.

You have to recruit different players at Wisconsin compared to Utah State.

Zeke would be a great choice.

If we are talking Heisman winners, maybe it should be Archie Griffin.

"Down goes 11UrbzAndSpices. The quickest knockout of all time." - Fight Announcer

"Creamy gets creamed" - next day headline

I am a fan of creamy peanut butter, but no way am I fighting Taylor Decker for my right to eat creamy peanut butter.

Bob Stoops will probably take a job in the pros just to avoid playing us.

One way to catch up to Coach Saban is for Coach Meyer to prevent him from winning another championship!!
