I guess I'll say it since no one else has...

<<begin sarcasm>>

Fire Tim Beck!

I guess he is now our new whipping post. I've got to believe that Luke Fickell is relieved.

Is it just me are some of the "+" and "-" in the stat columns switched? For instance Points Against for VaTech - if you give up 21 points more than last year, shouldn't be "+21" and not "-21"?

It's probably just me. I had/problems with the +/- on point spreads as well.

Here's the thing, never put your team into a position where someone else controls your fate.

This happens ALL of the time everywhere in all leagues. Heck, didn't one of our NBA teams tank to get the number one pick.

If it is within the rules then quit complaining. If it is something that needs to be banned then ban it. Until it is banned suck it up!

Not going to lie...big plastic cowboys a little bit creepy!

Love the word "commentariat"...+1 for you good sir!

I think the most I'd pay is $0.

55" HD TV, comfy chair, GREAT food and family. Who'd want to go watch it in person?

Crappy parking, obnoxious opposition fans, sky high concessions....bah.

Besides that, it is generally on the day I celebrate Thanksgiving with my dad's side of the family.

To be perfectly truthful I have no problem with  ESPN hyping the SEC I mean they own the SEC Network. What would you expect?

My biggest problem is that there isn't a single ESPN employee who will admit that they have anything other than impartiality when on the air. No one will trash the SEC because they own the channel and that would be self defeating (i.e. cost them viewers = $'s). But no one will stand up and admit that...not one.

Is it a good thing to split time with the "ones"? Who ever ends up being the starter is losing out on 50% (or whatever split time means) of his reps with the first teamers. To me that is valuable time lost to someone who is going to be the back-up.

I suppose it is entirely possible that JT is not fully healthy and they need 12-Guage ready to start the season until JT's ankle is 100%...pure speculation on my part.

The coaches know WAY (I can't put enough emphasis on that word) more than I do, but it is something I would ask UFM if I saw him.

I am up for different uniforms as long as they stay true to OSU colors. Black is an accent color on our uniforms. Our colors are not scarlet, grey, and black. Just scarlet and grey....jmho.

As a former coach of my daughters teams from U8 thru middle school, my best tips are these:

1) Always make it as fun as possible. At this age this is the most important, as it will keep them interested as they get older.

2) Fundamentals are all you are after. Dribble, Pass, and Kick. I always told my team parents that if I could see at least one "good" pass per half it was a good game.

3) Good half-time and after game snacks. Makes the victories that much sweeter and the defeats a lot easier to take.

4) Always be positive and up beat when talking to the team. Not only will the kids respond well you'll build up some equity with the parents as well.

I'm all-in for an eight team playoff. Give me the five Power-5 Champs and three Wildcard teams. I also want it so that of the three Wildcard teams there can be no more than one from any single conference.

What I'd really like is for everyone to quit saying Superbowl winning QB Trent Dilfer. "His" Baltimore Ravens won the Superbowl with a defense not seen since the '85 Bears. I'd almost go out on a limb and say that the Ravens won the Superbowl despite not having a QB worth a damn on their roster. I mean really - 113 TDs and 129 INTs for his career - hell even in 2000 when he "won the Superbowl" he had 12TDs and 11 INTs. Lets quit saying that he was anything but a journeyman QB who happened to fall into a great Defense in Baltimore.

Honestly, I thought about downvoting you just for having Marion's pizza on your list! They are terrible (JMHO)...especially the "rat turd" sausage...ugh!!! ;-)

As a person who has coached my daughters soccer teams almost every season until they were in High School, I've never had a real problem with attitudes (blessed). I can only think of three times where I as the coach had to lay down the law and once I did we did have anymore issues that season:

1) We had one girl on the team who was our middle school's best player. Could dribble past anyone and had a cannon for a right foot. Our best defender didn't like be shown up during one practice and they decided to go at it a little bit. I pulled them both aside, told them what I expected from each of them and there were no further peeps from them.

2) On a hot day most of the team decided it was too hot for practice. I made them run and run and run until it was time for a water break. I asked them if they were ready to practice now or if they wanted to continue to work on their cardio. We had a nice spirited practice after that.

3) We were playing against an undermanned squad so I decided to put the girls in positions that they normally don't play to shake things up and give the other team a sporting chance. One of our girls decided she didn't want to play were I put her and five minutes into the game I pulled her and put her on the bench. Her mom came over and asked if she was hurt and I told her that she just wasn't putting out the effort and until she does I was going to sit her. Her mom walked over to her and told her to get her head into the game and play where the coach puts you.

To perfectly honest, I give props to the parents of those girls for instilling in them proper values of respect and hard work.

I say wah! It isn't against the rules! Not everyone has the same "moral" compass that you might have.

Will it stop the poor student from going to school? Probably not so much....

Is Petrino a first class ass-hat...without a doubt. If it isn't against the rules, I probably wouldn't lose much sleep over it unless my decision prevented that person from going to college.
