First design that came to mind:

Is that the guy that wears women's underwear?  Ok, I'm done.

Originally said 4, but going with 6 after thinking about how many TDs Guiton always came away with as "the Distributor".

5 of them have already been removed from their scholarships because they did not qualify or were rejected by admissions.  They also had a lot of transfers out already this year.

A: Verbals don't mean anything.  NCAA rules for scholarship numbers aren't even assessed until March I think.

B: South Carolina is 4 under their scholarship limit currently.  They also get 3 scholarships back for 2015.  Mike Davis will likely go pro.  27-(15+8) = 4 scholarships over.  So really that's all we're talking about right now, which, at this point in the game, wouldn't be out of the question for OSU.  

C: 4 year scholarships are fairly new to the NCAA rulebook, so I don't get too bent out of shape that most schools don't offer them.  However, I do expect the "power 5" to start requiring these with their new autonomy sooner rather than later.

I'm nearly 36 and I despise talking on the phone.  It's like I need to go into a sense deprivation chamber to not get distracted and be able to understand what is being said and convey what I'm trying to say over the phone.

Sweat for sure.  I have to think VOR is much higher for a talent like Sweat.  Not sure there's that same separation with all the stud WRs out there.

Comment 17 Aug 2014

Since the question has been posed, I think it's a silly rule, players should be able to celebrate as long as they aren't taunting.  However, I also think doing it again to stick it to the man for such a "good lord why does anyone care" type principle is incredibly childish and pedantic and shows why there is a need for such silly rules.  Ultimately though, this is not something that typically registers with me one way or the other.

Just kidding, though I'm on the fence about this.  I'm sure it would be interesting stuff, but a part of me feels like this is just spurring on the runaway train that recruiting has become.

Was Jackie Robinson breaking the race barrier important to sports?  The obvious difference is that everyone could see that Jackie was black, so maybe it seems like a much bigger deal, because it was known and they couldn't ignore it.  People don't go around proclaiming to be straight because nearly everyone assumes heterosexuality, unless they are told or shown otherwise.  Stereotypes aside, there's no visual indicator that forces people to confront any issues they have with this difference like there would be with someone who has a different color skin.  That is why publicly coming out is important for sports and society as a whole.  Now it can likely be debated in a case like Michael Sam what is good for social change and what is marketing/attention-grabbing/commercialization/etc, but I don't think it makes it any less courageous.

I've been enjoying a couple craft pilsners this summer:

The Wright Pils - GLBC
PILS - Lagunitas

I also really like Breckinridge Summer Bright Ale, Bell's Two Hearted IPA, and Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager.
