definitely agree - granted i didn't watch many wisconsin games...  but dobbins showed up for us big time.  i'm doubtful the voters took a lot of that in consideration - i mean, if the numbers were reverse and taylor won the award with less numbers, wouldn't we be up in arms as well?

either way, i'm glad we have dobbins - hopefully his chip works well this weekend.

oh, i'm not disagreeing - i just pulled the numbers from e$pn and i'm guessing that the guys who selected taylor probably used this as their basis.

both put up good numbers...  if that's all you looked at, i guess i can see why taylor got it...  here are the stats:

went to webmd for some details (https://www.webmd.com/pain-management/knee-pain/mcl-injury-what-to-know#1)

Causes
When your outer knee is hit very hard, the MCL, which runs along your inner knee, can stretch out far enough to strain or tear. People who play football, hockey, and other sports where players impact other athletes with great force may injure their MCL this way.

You may also stretch or tear your MCL if your knee is suddenly pushed to the side, or if it twists or bends out too far.

Treatment
If you have a mild MCL strain, it can heal on its own with rest, ice, and other self-care. You’ll need to raise your sore knee when you put ice on it, keep weight off the joint, and protect and compress the injury with a knee brace or elastic bandage.

To ease pain and swelling, your doctor may have you take NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen. Follow the instructions on the label.

For more severe damage, you may need physical therapy to rehab your knee when your MCL pain begins to fade. Your physical therapist will give you exercises to strengthen the leg muscles around your knee so it works properly.

It’s rare for someone with an MCL injury to need surgery, since this ligament can often heal within a few weeks or months with the help of other measures. But you might need it, especially if another part of your knee is also hurt.

Whether or not you need surgery, you may be able to play sports again with a few weeks or months. Your doctor can let you know when it’s OK to get back to those activities, and she may ask you to wear a knee brace when you’re active.

like z-list said, gaslight is really nice (haven't been in a while) and mcgees is younger and more energy.

i typically watch in my man-cave in chicago.  :)

bars are overcrowded and hard to get in before and after the games.  if you're with a bunch of guys, it may be easier to get a table at an "establishment" if you want to sit and drink; but if you're with family, you may have to wait or get reservations.

and hence why some of us are concerned with taking on a team twice.  it's the same with most sports - they know what you're going to throw at them and what schemes you're going to run - it'll be about execution and mistakes.

Comment 03 Dec 2019

i'm confident, but at the same time, i really hope we're not overlooking wisconsin. 

they're a very talented multi-dimensional team and if taylor gets started and amped up, we may have our hands full.  coan is a good qb if he has time as others have mentioned.  they used to have the #1 defense in the nation, which we shouldn't overlook either.  it's going to be a battle and if our guys are focused and playing hard, we should be good.  no turnovers!!

i think the element in question is whether fuller is "attacking" DPJ - granted, he made contact with DPJ's head after it was lowered after the catch, but i think it didn't quite meet the "attacking" element of targeting:

Launch — a player leaving his feet to attack an opponent by an upward and forward thrust of the body to make forcible contact in the head or neck area

A crouch followed by an upward and forward thrust to attack with forcible contact at the head or neck area, even though one or both feet are still on the ground

Leading with helmet, shoulder, forearm, fist, hand or elbow to attack with forcible contact at the head or neck area

Lowering the head before attacking by initiating forcible contact with the crown of the helmet.

definitely agree with #1 - unfortunately, sr. never got an opportunity, but that's better for us and probably for his longevity.

i also think there are sourness there - tweet comes after we beat jr's alma mater (PSU).
