Owen Groesser is a true "sports hero." That was a great story!
An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches
Since i'm done with the Te'o nonsense, i'm going to ignore how he could not tell he was talking to a man.
Manti Te'o bangs chicks
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
Get well soon Mrs.Naut 6-0 > 3-6.
I hate the fact that it has been mid 80s here recently and will be again next week. It's January! Why am I sweating?
I was sweating earlier during my unnecessary 5 a.m workout. It froze to my face...
You're dead to me, OB. :/
I hate to rub it in to you Ohioans, but it's kinda gonna be between 56 and 60 degrees here in Denver for the next 5 days. We hit 70 this past Wednesday...
But if you know the weather out here it will snow 4 feet any day now and melt the next day when it's 73 and sunny
Hey, 303. Whereabouts in Denver are you?
You people are evil.
So, because he apparently really wants everyone to know, I'll assist in his efforts to spread the word: Manti Te'o bangs chicks.
Too bad Mantei's name didn't begin with an 'A' (Anti Bangs Chicks). He could've had a sign like this:
But with NBC, I guess his name would have to have started with an 'N'.
Neutral site? That's ridiculous to assume that it will add to the revenue or replace the value of ANY teams home game. Sure the university will make a little more, but what about the ancillary businesses that pull in millions during the two or three days? Delaney must be a (the opposite political party as me.....)!
Just think of The Varsity Club sitting nearly empty....
Nothing says "You're a Loser" more than owning a motivational poster about being a Winner.
I agree but the VC does just fine when we have 1 less home game a year. End of the day, if VC and other establishments can't cut it on that prime real estate, someone else will.
Funny, I was thinking the same thing. Sure the univeristy may get another million or two, but at what cost to the local economy? Game days are huge money makers for a ton of small "businesses", even if that business is as simple as hawking peanuts for $2 outside the stadium, or charging $10 to park in your driveway on Saturday afternoon, or selling t-shirts, etc.
And if I am Maryland or Rutgers, just having home games with OSU and Michigan alone will most likely guarantee a sellout and increased sales of everything in and around the stadium, so what ultimately are they truly gaining? (note, I have no idea if every Rutgers/Maryland home games sell out currently, just speculating that they don't as I am far too lazy to look it up). Shouldn't part of the allure for the new B1G teams be to host home games with the OSU's/Michigan's/Nebraska's of the world, historical powerhouse teams that have never been to your town?
Sorry, just not a fan of the neutral site thing.
Re Neutral site games.
I've been saying since we added Rutgers that the Big Ten needs to come up with a annual showcase pre-conference game to be played at the Meadowlands. Think Michigan vs Alabama at Cowboys Stadium last year, but a different Big Ten team every year.
Like Boston, the NYC market is an NFL town. It's going to take some effort but over time I think we can make an impact there and not only create a sizable niche for cfb but one focused on Big Ten football.
Aesculus excellentium cum MCMLXV.
OMG that NFL lip reading is absolute gold thank you Elika!
I want cake now!! I want it now!!
Am I the only one that didn't think that gif was all that funny?
Omg..Montee Ball has a fake girlfriend too!!??
No. Just a fake Rose Bowl victory.
And a fake Big Ten championship.
Class of 2010.
Though I'm tired of the whole Te'o thing as well, old Billy Shakespeare came to mind when he suddenly became animated after Katie's gay question: "(He) doth protest too much, methinks."

Yea what's this Monte Ball talk?
Tough times never last, tough people do
I think Elika was poking some fun at her dad's semi-ignorance / apathy when it comes to mainstream media sports topics (confusing MANTI with MONTEE).
Time and change will surely show how firm they friendship... O-HI-O.
Elika's comment about her dad made me think of Belichik's comment about not following Facepage.
" I hope when I die, I die laughing"...
I think it was just someone not knowing what is going on..although manti and montee do kinda look alike..
Still no pictures of the Skydive?? I'm disappointed Elika.
I won't be talking about Lance Armstrong OR Montee Ball's fake girlfriend in this week's Skull Session.
You're welcome, Dad.
While I won't be talking about Montee's fake girlfriend, I do have a couple updates on Manti Te'o's saga. While the original Deadspin story on this whole Manti mess said that the woman in the photographs was a former classmate of Ronaiah Tuiasosopo's, the NY Daily News reported that Tuiasosopo was the voice of "Lennay Kekua" during the long phone conversations with Te'o.
"You're a liar." -Signed, Elika's dad.
to be honest, i was kinda hoping for more current news...just because i generally mail in fridays doesn't mean that its acceptable for others to as well.
How firm thy friendship... OH-I-O!
Now, was that necessary?
If that's how he feels, sure. It did feel kind of short.
That's what she said.
(In all seriousness, it wasn't the shortest Skull Session this week. It also wasn't the second shortest Skull Session this week. But apologies if y'all felt it was subpar.)
Since you were last, you get to take all the heat. It's the law of the internets(that I just made up).
I didn't think it was subpar, just shorter than I expected. 11w Skull Sessions are one of the few things on the internet that I actually look forward /enjoy reading, so when they're under 50 paragraphs(ok 49, but I won't accept anything less), it's a little disappointing.
So I expect 50 paragraphs of awesome next week!
I just thought the last comment was over the line. Anyone has a right to be disappointed, but i thought to accuse Elika of mailing it in was uncalled for. The staff bring us content every day. Some is better than other, but to call it unacceptable--c'mon man, how much did you pay for your subscription?
You're probably right.
Notice how she said "Montee Ball" not Manti Te'o.
Manti needs to come out of the closet! Not that there is anything wrong with that!
The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced
If Manti Te'o is straight, consider me Miles Davis...
The world needs to hear more Owen Groesser stories! There are plenty of good things that get overshadowed in this life.
edit; before grammar cops show up in my helmet sticker stash!
Lennay is dead....Long live Lennay!
Get busy living.
I'm confused. Must be the stink of bacon causing it.
Gene could just do what the Browns did and play all home games on the East Coast.
COURIC: So, could you describe her, uh...
TE'O: Oh, yeah, she had great t*ts.
COURIC: No no no, I mean, like, details.
TE'O: They were nice. You know, when you, like, you grab a woman's breast and it's... and you feel it and... it feels like a bag of sand ... when you're touching it.
we need more of this type of stuff in here...
They totally borked.
Whomever posted the earlier thread suggesting T'eo might be covering up his sexual orientation was dead on. Speaking of dead, what are the odds T'eo isn't going to be a sideshow circus for whatever NFL team drafts him? Waves of reporters showing up to ask players and coaches and the GM and owner if they think T'eo is gay and whether he should come out. Nooooo, that wouldn't be a distraction at all. Have fun with that baggage!

Now Montee Ball has a fake GF? What is the world coming too...
My dad asked earlier this week "who gives a s--- about Lance Armstrong and this Montee Ball's fake girlfriend?" So, rest assured... I won't be talking about Lance Armstrong OR Montee Ball's fake girlfriend in this week's Skull Session.
Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.
As mentioned above, she was just making fun of her dad's malapropism. I'm pretty confident Elika herself has never mixed up Montee Ball and Manti Te'o.
Thank. You. Sarah.
It always amazes me when people fail to grasp something so obvious. If it wasn't well written I can see how there would be a problem but that wasn't the case.
Or you guys are failing to realize that Bme_B was just trying to be funny. -_-
I think most on here understood what she meant from the beginning.
I hope that's it.
I'm sure it is. We common folk aren't that slow.
Obviously, some people got the joke, but there also seemed to be some confusion, so I was just clarifying for them that it wasn't a typo on Elika's part. Or, I suppose, it was a deliberate typo.
I think some were just to get Elika to respond. XD
Done with the Te'o story... and Johnny Football is the man.
I haven't been keeping up on current events and I apologize in advance for this question: Is this fake girlfriend of Teo's the very same one that "died" the same day as his grandmother? If so my God man there are so many things wrong with that story on so many levels. Maybe he would have actually played well in the NC game if he hadn't been burdened with not coming out yet. He needs to nut up and just announce it, it's not like anybody reasonable will care.
Yep, it's the very same one who "died" the same day as his grandmother. Turns out it was some family acquaintance Ronaniah Tuiasosopo (yep, that's a dude) that was supposedly duping Te'o into thinking he was in an online relationship with "Lennay Kekua." Te'o spent countless hours on the phone talking to RT thinking that it was a chick on the line. If you believe it...that's the current "defense."
Anyway, how in the world have you avoided this "news" over the past week? I'm envious.
College football games belong on college campuses. I'm never in favor of moving one for monetary reasons, although I understand why it happens.
I think it goes beyond just money though. I think part of the idea is to have competitve balance. If we go to a 9 game conference schedule, one neutral site game would give all teams 4-4-1 home away and neutral. I think home field is a little overrated, but it would ease the transition to a 9 game schedule.
"Who cares? Go Bucks." - Aaron Untch
I completely agree. I was so upset when they moved the Fiesta off of ASU campus and out of Sun Devil Stadium. That was such a beautiful venue and such a great campus.
Agreed on this - Sun Devil Stadium is one of the most scenic venues in CFB. More so than even the Rose bowl IMHO...
Couldn't agree more. Went to two bowl games there, and one in Glendale. Glendale's just a sterile football environment - Sun Devil Stadium (and the surrounding environment of ASU campus) added sooooo much more to the atmosphere of being at a big game.
I think you guys are all confused. It's not Lennay Kekua it's Lenny Kekua.

The joke about Manti Teo/Montee Ball reminds me how the first time you see or hear something it can be skewed.
For example, Bill Kurelic of Bucknuts made a joke about Joey Bosa being on a visit to Alabama and Marshall on a visit to Florida this weekend during the 1pm-2pm time frame on 97.1 The Fan on Bishop and Rothman today.
They skipped over it and started talking about Munger reaffirming his committment and then mentioned Diggs from last year.
It was not until about 10 min later that Bishop went back to discuss Bosa visiting Alabama that Kurelic said "before people start wrecking their cars all over Columbus I was not serious about that".
Kurelic ment it as "you would not want this to happen" not that it was literally happening.
The way Kurelic said it though it didn't sound like he was joking. If you go on 97.1 The Fan and go to Shows > Bishop and Rothman > Download today 1pm-2pm and skip ahead to the 49 minute mark they start talking to Bill.
Scout.com has Ezekiel Elliot moving from a verbal to a soft verbal and intrest in Missouri to Medium. Considering he might not get much playing time for at least a year, I understand his intrest in his home school. He would play right away in Missouri.
Did you mean to post this here?
But they also had Munger as a soft verbal when he went on his trip.
Yes, I meant to post it here.
Dude he is going to get plenty of pt if he's ready. We are starving for explosion.
