"You'd think fans of a team so successful would understand a little about the game."

- Considering 85% of the fan base didn't know the team existed or really followed football until about 20 years ago it upsets me that a run such as this is wasted on the new england fan base. It is insufferable to be around them and actually try to have normal conversation about the games

I know i'm not the only one and it's been said by several people before but, it's driven me away from the NFL game. Not PI specifically but the rules at large.

I know the college game has its issues (does it ever) but i just can't get excited about the NFL. Plus living in New England with sanctimonious New England fans probably has a bit to do with my lack of enthusiasm.

I don't think that's the question. The question is:

Can Tate transfer credits to a different school (UNLV for the sake of argument). Attend UNLV this semester and complete his credits to earn the degree. Then having graduated from UNLV grad transfer elsewhere in the fall and not sit the year. 

i also don't know the rules about that, but maybe there's a loophole. I think that's what TXNut was getting at. I think everyone understands anyone can transfer at anytime and graduating is not required to do so.

Traditional Television Programming...Yes...Friday Primetime is a kiss of death. However a CFB National Championship is not a traditional TV program on a traditional network. 

My Personal preference would be Saturday as it is the traditional College Football Day. But I get that the NFL has it's playoffs and that is king, so Friday Night for a 1 off Championship game would surely outdraw a Monday night....no?

To be fair Tate didn't actually say "I don't care to know him". 

He was asked "Do you even know Fields" to which Tate shook his had and said "No, i don't know him" Was asked again "You don't even know him?" and Tate shook his head then was asked "do you care to know him" and he said “I don’t care.”

It's small and may be semantics, but there ya go.

Whatever decision Day makes, I think it's one where he has to make it confidently and not second guess.

I have a feeling he already has an idea of what he wants to do but just needs time (more than 2 days) before making such broad changes. Maybe hoping to wait until after Signing Day since both Schiano and Grinch are presumably out recruiting?

I mean i maybe understand the Jonathan Taylor getting some love because he is a 2k yard back and that doesn't grow on trees but some of the others are head scratchers to me as far as 1st place votes. I mean. Devin Bush is the leader of the number 1 defense....so ...ok?... I'm just trying to understand the logic of McSorely and Rondale Moore and Gary....oh well...   

Comment 08 Oct 2018

I know it's been harped to death but if there is a gap over the center or interior line I still don't get why a QB sneak isn't used. 

Line up in shotgun per usual. If the QB sees the opportunity, go up to line like he's making adjustments pointing and hollering etc. then slide the hands under center and go. 

If its not there then fine, still go up to the line and point and holler, just go back to shotgun and proceed as intended. 

Granted, I'm not a coach and there is probably nuance that i'm ignorant towards, it just feels like an easy way to get a yard if the defense is aligned a certain way.

I saw the poster earlier and thought, "Nice game poster! I love it!" then heard all this chatter later in the day about an offensive game poster OSU put out and thought there must have been another one.....

Now, I'm no genius but I'm far from the dullest tool in the shed and I legitimately didn't connect the dots for 10 minutes and needed someone to explain that the "silence" --> "domestic abuse" was the connection or "problem" with it. 

I'm so confused now... about everything...

Wow....this type of lymphoma is super rare in the US according to your link...and not typical in someone so young....tragic all around

Comment 19 Sep 2018

All i'm asking for at this point is consistency. If the hit against Haskins wasn't targeting, then Ok, I get he was going down and the defender was probably couldn't do much to change his momentum

But the in the Utah vs Washington the Utah Defender Leki Fotu was ejected for targeting on what seemed to be a grazing hit. That penalty took away an interception and eventually kept a TD drive alive in what was a close game at that point. (haven't been able find the video if anyone else is able) 

It just feels like it's such a subjective rule on so many levels that there is not consistency from game to game, conference to conference, etc.   

Comment 13 Sep 2018

Agreed....Good Video.....but not necessarily a great hype for TCU....like....this could be used for any game in that stadium against {Insert Opponent Here}. 

I will say the hype videos this year have been a bit more....experimental....which I don't mind (I really liked the Johnnie Dixon camera video last week), but feels like this was a little off center of the intent.  

Comment 13 Aug 2018

I know ESPN+ is getting blasted here....but as a soccer fan as well i'm already paying the $5 for their soccer content, so this won't effect me at all.

Also, for fans of smaller schools that will be on "plus" $5 isn't much extra to pay for 3 to 4 games. essentially $1.25. Plus you can start and stop the subscription. 

All that said, i'll be surprised if the rates don't go up in the next years or so. They just picked up rights to Serie A and some other Soccer leagues around the world. Right now its a lot of content that I personally consume for not a lot of money.
