Are you suggesting playing a backup in a key moment?
If I'm snarky it's because of your clear biased ignorance. It's cute how ppl like you prefer confirmation rather than information. It's even MORE cute when ppl like you make up statistics out of thin air...here's a little hint, just because the man himself makes those claims, or someone that shares his same beliefs "backs him up" does NOT, in any way, make it a fact. People like you are just as bad as those you rally against...the sad thing is you can't even see it.
If you want the game to truly be like the 80's and 90's, then I hope you are watching in standard def. That new age, high def stuff is ridiculous.
Good ole Buckeye Jack isn't going to like reading this...
I still believe we'll see a lot of play from Burrow and/or Haskins
ONLY if he is hurt, or struggles. At which point it would be warranted. You will not, 100% NOT, see any sort of dual QB system. Both backups WILL play, but in mop up duty.
But Jason, he has sources...
Is this a joke, Zeke? You can't possibly expect people to take you seriously when you label one blowhard as an idiot only to say another equally idiotic blowhard is more credible? And you think "group think" is the issue? Lol.
While I figured(or at least hoped) you weren't being serious, the DV I received proved my point that SOME people actually think this way.
But yes, 8/31 cannot come fast enough.
Why the hell would I ever be interviewing a guy from TSUN?
Well, if you are being serious, that is a very poor/petty way to run a business.
ESecPN obviously pressured Goodell into such a lengthy suspension because of the way Zeke / Ohio State embarrassed Alabama and the SEC.
I was thinking the same thing...just needed someone to spell it out for me.
and should look at big pocket ESPN as a co defendant
What does ESPN have to do with this?
CincyBuck - I lived in Cincinnati for 14 years...I love the city and would move back in a heartbeat. But, people aren't wrong when talking about how defensive people in that area get over certain things. Some of it is unfair, some of it is self inflicted but it is what it is. I'll defend the city itself all day long, but I understand where those that criticize it are coming from.
Do you have a daughter? I have one and if this happened to her I'd be pretty pissed that's all they got. Had they spent time in real jail and had it done to them then...
But now you're bringing emotion into the equation. As a father, if this happened to my daughter, I'd likely be in jail right now but removing emotion from this case...he served his time(whether it was too light has nothing to do with anything at this point) and has the right to move on with his life. If we take that right away, then watch the recidivism rate skyrocket. I don't like what he did, but he has done EVERYTHING asked of him...at what point do we stop punishing those who have already been punished?
He is a great talent grabber, not necessarily a great coach - unless you don't distinguish at all between the two.
I think you might be the one having the issues here. He is a GREAT coach, one of the best EVER. You're cherry picking certain records with certain team and certain aspects of coaching to "prove" your point. He's a GREAT coach, recruiter, evaluator, motivator, etc. A good human being? Ehh, not so much.
That's the wrong way to look at this. Does he not deserve credit for creating that talent gap? Does he not get credit for developing the players that create said talent gap? People forget, Bama was a polished turd before Saban got there.
Saban isn't a good coach...he's one of the best EVER.
Sigh....it really is sad that you think we can't tell when someone has been "a long time lurker" only.
No, he's just a good coach. Please dont make excuses.
Edit - My bad, didnt pay attention to the italics...
Yea, that's exactly what I did...
Some people, but I guess you can't fix stupid...guess that's why we likely have a member who has been booted before throwing out crazy ass opinions.
Well, he was a 16 year old KID when the crime occurred. And the blaming of parents every time a kid does something stupid is getting a little tiresome.
If we castrated rapists --- guarantee these sick f@cks would at least think twice before raping. There would be less rapes.
Well, we don't live in a third world country...so there's that. And, most rapes are committed by "new" rapists so I'm not sure how your plan would work seeing as the recidivism rate for rape is quite low.
Easiest way to eliminate using the helmet as a weapon is to take off the facemask.
I'm not sure I follow. How would exposing one's face to a hard helmet, among other things, help the situation? Not being a dick, just curious if I'm missing something.
Denard graduated a few years ago...
Wait until one of you bleeding left liberals have a young daughter raped by some criminal and then let me read your post.
This is such a STUPID comment on so many levels. Without getting too political(and this is the last thing I will say regarding the politics of the situation), you do realize that many of the left are the ones who want him to be punished further, right? I know this might shock your world view, but I think you have to two political viewpoints on this matter flip flopped.
Not to mention the fact that your statement implies that ONLY ex-cons are the ones committing crime, which in itself is also utterly absurd.
Another unpopular opinion, but I do NOT like Gus when calling football games either. To me, it's like he goes out of his way to make routine plays sound like the first time he saw a girl naked. Don't get me wrong, when it's a big play or a big moment, he's great, but other than that he wouldn't crack my top 5 of play by play guys.
Well, it happened. You and I agree on something. Lol.
