In 1984, we were playing Illinois, who were very good during those days and Keith Byars had a run of 67 yards, including losing his shoe to help beat the Illini.

Zeek has the sexual maturity level of a junior high school boy who's just reached puberty. He wanted free, easy, no consequences sex and girls like this are the only ones who will give him what he wants...except for the no consequences part. These types of girls use their body to make money and if Zeek thought he was going to screw her for a while and then throw her away, he was sadly mistaken.

If our uniforms and helmets are so great, then why do we use alternatives for the biggest, most memorable games?

I'm not crazy about Tom Hamilton to be honest. Joe Tait was the greatest broadcaster Cleveland ever had and while Hamilton is good, he's a distant second in my opinion to Tait

Gary Hahn has been the voice of the NC State Wolfpack for a number of years. I knew he wouldn't last at Ohio State when he scolded the fans for criticizing Eldon Miller.

If Hargrove leaves Mike Jackson in to pitch the ninth in game seven, we would have won. But the "book" said to bring in the closer and Jose Mesa, who had been really struggling the last half of the year couldn't get the job done. I'm still mad about that move.

How about Mike Hargrove. Mike Jackson in the 8th mowed the Marlins down 1-2-3. We go to the bottom of the 9ith and he pulls him to put Mesa, who had been struggling to close out games recently and we know what happened. After the game, Hargrove went to the MLB managers  favorite excuse by using the "book" as the reason he did it.

I would add a couple more gaffs. Gene Smith is our version of Dave Brandon. He will sell anything if it makes a couple of bucks. First, when the B1G was aligned in the "Legends and Leaders" format, he was perfectly fine with moving the Michigan game to mid-season to avoid a potential back to back game at the end. There would have gone 75 years of tradition and history right down the drain. Second, his decision to allow Nike to have say in what uniforms we would wear. No other "King" in college football comes close to changing looks more than we do. Under Smith, we've basically lowered ourselves to a Louisville or Cincinnati level. I have no idea what wearing matte black helmets for last years Michigan accomplished. If our traditional uniforms aren't good enough for our biggest games, then get rid of them.

Funny Craig Sager story about Ted Turner and Jane Fonda

Comment 27 Nov 2016

I'm a complete cynic when it comes to the motives behind the alternatives. It's just bullshit to say were honoring someone when it's clear all we're doing is honoring the terms of our Nike contract. This was one of the classic games against Michigan and it's a shame from this point forward, when we look at replays of the game, we're not going to see our team in our iconic helmets, but in these matte black helmets that offer no connection to the fans or the game.

How many players declare depends almost solely on their NFL evaluations. If its high, they're gone.

Venezuela is as corrupt of a country as there is. Despite massive wealth from petroleum, most of its population lives in violent, squaller conditions. The wealthiest women in Venezuela is Hugo Chavez's daughter. Did she attain that wealth from inventing some product that everyone wants or did she embezzle money from the people? My guess is the later.
