Agreed. And the headline is all you need to see, I mean how much more "story" could there be to that one?
Agreed. Most punch-able face in college football.
That was a great team, didn't realize they were all that "short". Every guy on that team could beat you.
Glad I wasn't the only one that bailed on the mysterious aircraft non-story. After reading the second time it happened and still zero details, I skimmed to the bottom just to see if there was ever going to be an "a-ha" moment. Nope. What a waste of time.
I don't disagree with your second point, but I think the opposite could also be true - if every kid on every team could transfer without sitting out, you might end up having a specialized recruiting niche of teams trying to poach highly rated guys from the OSU's and Alabama's of the world that didn't get much playing time their freshmen years. I could see where that could get cut throat and very unethical very quickly. The 'secondary market" of recruiting if you will.
Can't do anything about it??? Clearly you didn't you see Armegeddon! Pretty sure it won the Academy Award for, uh, best movie ever.
God I hope so.....
This hoops teams biggest crime was giving us ridiculous expectations with all the big early season wins. I am with you, give them some time, but man I was excited back at the end of December when they were 11-1.
Agreed - I read it over the weekend and it was great. Confirmed what I already thought about a couple guys - especially Harbaugh and Pelini. Would definitely read a book of those kind of anecdotes.
Good point. And I didn't realize Jalin Marshall was a 5 star, kind of shocked by that. But wasn't he more of a QB in high school?
Fair, I admit I watched PrimeTime in its heyday every week. But like everything else the act got stale.
MNF with Booger is atrocious. Almost makes me yearn for Dennis Miller to be back in the booth. Almost.
Couldn't agree more on Berman. Please just go away and stay away. Why they decided to bring him back on ESPN this year I will never know.
And yea, Corso is just hard to watch at all. Sad and cringy, he seems lost on the set, and it's Herbstreit's job to babysit him and keep him on track
Oh no, someone said a potty word!!
I never understood how people get so worked up over a "dirty" word. It's the words intent that matters, not the sound the word makes. You can say he meanest, rudest things imaginable without ever swearing. The sooner people stop focusing on what they have been taught to believe is a bad word and instead focus on the message, the better.
Gambling rule #1 - don't bet with your heart.
I don't *want* Herman to ever win, but feels like that's too many points in a rivalry game. I imagine that is the rationale for most picking Texas.
My thought was he should stop wasting his Saturday's watching his team build false hope only to lose horrifically when it matters most and instead spend some time on that lawn, that is one trashy back yard.
OMG, I forgot how awful/awesome this show was. As a kid the Bigfoot episode really freaked me out, I thought Steve had met his match. Thanks for this blast from the past.
It's like the sound effects are barely half-assedly attached to the action, so cringe worthy to see it now.
Typical first game of the season, with lots of sloppy penalties and turnovers. But I agree, Cinci is going to be a tough out for sure - Ridder looks much improved from last year and they have a good ground game (although banged up) and as always a solid defense. But, they wont have the cozy confines of Nippert and a jacked up crowd backing them next Saturday.
Reyes is the prize of the deal, not Puig, not that Puig is bad, he's just a free agent in a couple months. Reyes is under team control until 2025, is a developing into a monster power hitter and they can play him at DH since his defense blows. And they got a decent pitching prospect, Logan Allen, from the Padres as well. Great deal for the Tribe in my eyes.
Lighten up Francis - I find it funny.
Did anyone else find this hilarious:
"A week after sending the message, a graduate assistant found the mistake while reviewing Davis' texts"
Being a Grad assistant sure sounds glamorous. Sifting through assistant coaches texts looking for violations.
They only looked at 1998 to present. Pace was gone by then.
I was going to post almost this same thing - great article (thanks Dan Hope - some great writing here) and it sure beats the "who will start at the 2 open LB spots" articles that pepper the off season landscape.
I would place Tennessee in that same category as LSU - always highly ranked (and for them, 15 counts as "highly ranked"), never delivers.
Great rundown. And I am ashamed to admit I was on he Mason bandwagon. I was OK with the Tressel hire, just wasn't convinced he could do it on the biggest stage.
In regards to Spielman, I recall reading that Geiger was blown away by Spielman's interview especially since as you said he was just doing it as a courtesy to an OSU great, but just couldn't hire a guy with basically no experience.
I mean, technically he DID make it which is kind of amazing. Just glad no one standing on the deck got crushed.
