Mid 90's were a dark time for a growing football fan. Peak Cooper disappointment and having an actual good Browns team ripped away from me.

I have faith he would know the offense so mess ups like throwing the wrong routes etc. He can probably hand off and make audibles but not make all the throws. 2/5

Comment 25 Nov 2019

We are one of if not the fastest team in the country across the board. Rain will never be an advantage for us.

Mason

1. Tried to take off MG's helmet

2. Kicked MG's Groin

3. Pursued MG after MG was being restrained by the other lineman

Should be a min of 1 game.

Does he know just because Baker plays for a the Browns in Cleveland doesn't mean Ohio state needs to be lumped together. Seems he is taking that feud and putting it towards anything in the state.

Does anyone know what the worst record of a P5 champion as been since the playoffs started? I know towards the end of the BCS area there was some 4 loss Big East schools but that seems to be the rare occasion. It seems in most cases the worst case scenario for an auto bid team would be a 10-3 school while realistically most would have 0-2 losses. 

Comment 05 Nov 2019

The benefit of auto bids from a fan perspective is you get better OOC games because they are essentially being used for seeding. Assuming a 9 game conference schedule you could play 1 high level game, 1 other power 5 team like a texas tech and an Ohio Mac School. Or if you get wild 2 high level games since all you need to do is win the conference. I also know it won't happen due to home games but what would be easier if we go this route is to move to ten conference games and 2 OOC games with 1 being high level and 1 being prep/getting paid if you are the Mac team in this scenario.

I do think if you really want an expanded playoff you have to concede getting rid of Title games and the best way to do that is 10 conference games and no divisions. Take 6 conference champs and 2 highest non champs. Have the first round on campus of the higher seed when we have conference title games now and do the final 4 and bowl season the same as its handled currently time wise. Every conference has a shot, no more complaints about being left out.

Breaking news, college wants Urban Meyer as coach. You could insert any school outside of Alabama and Clemson and that would be accurate

Interesting timing of the article combined with Day's comments a few days ago saying they felt good with where they were with the running backs in this class.

Comment 22 Oct 2019

I think you are misinterpreting what I have been saying. I never said Keto was the only way. Maine said he saw alot of people on this thread attack carbs and asked why. I explained why. I did say that our education process should reassess how we reccomend carbs. I also never said restricting calories(however it is done) doesn't work. I said Keto makes it easier to eat correctly from a calorie perspective due to not having the roller coaster effect carbs gives you as well as having a more full feeling. More and more studies are coming out in favor of that as well. Also I said we should look at who is funding studies and who lobbies to the powers that be to get us to point we are at.

Meanwhile Northwestern had 3 penalties called on them last year in the CC

Comment 22 Oct 2019

I think sugar is bad for weight loss because it causes an insulin response which in turn tricks your body into thinking its hungry(roller coaster I mentioned before). Your point "in a calorie restricted diet" is what I have been saying. CICO with sugar = hard for alot of people to maintain CICO on Protein/Fat = much easier to stay under where you need to. My A1C went from 6.5 to 4.8 in 6 months on KETO. It appears to be a no brainer.

Comment 22 Oct 2019

Or..or I could do the thing that led to losing 100 lbs in 8 months and has given me more energy than ever vs trying to "eat everything in moderation" and have "good carbs". Again, I have never felt full for a period of time eating eating "healthy" carbs. Sugar is sugar whether it comes from a fruit or from a bread processing into a sugar in our bodies. 

Comment 21 Oct 2019

For me focusing on lowering carbs is due to mostly satiety and no sugar roller coasters.

Or more commonly, how often do you get hungry shortly after eating chinese(rice/pasta). Now how often do you get hungry after a steak?(never)

Also, carbs turn directly into sugar. Furthermore if you can deplete your body of carbs then your body will burn fat automatically as it was intended to.

It is alot easier to eat less calories when your not always hungry and your body isn't always freaking out about "needing" carbs due to the sugar rollercoaster. It has been a complete 180 for me and quite frankly it pisses me off that schools/doctors teach kids to get in the habit of  6 to 11 grains per day(plus adding 4-5 sugars AKA fruit). Its setting our kids up for failure from the start.

Comment 16 Oct 2019

Just FYI, you don't have to eat all the fat. You can have more come from protein if you want. My understanding is

Carbs has a limit(between 20 and 50 G depending on the person)

Protein has a miniminum

Fat is the lever(it terms of how many calories you want)

Comment 16 Oct 2019

There is actually some science coming out about carbs causing certain insulin responses that make it hard to lose weight while also restricting fat burning production on the body.

In my personal opinion which is all I can speak from,  is eating fat/protein makes you feel full and satisfied and therefore you can naturally eat less calories and have more energy

Vs

Eating carbs causing me to be more hungry, more often and on top of that have severe sugar crashes where I HAVE to eat or else(mentally). On top of that I feel like garbage and have lower energy. Not all calories are the same.

Comment 14 Oct 2019

Agree on the 4 conference champions above however if we are talking about everyone having one loss:

Assuming we are talking about a non devastating loss I would think of the 3 non SEC teams Oklahoma would be in the worst spot due to their conference. I know the ACC is worse but I feel Clemson would get the benefit of the doubt with only 1 loss assuming it wasn't a Purdue/Iowa situation. The Big Ten is generally seen as the 2/3rd best conference and I think there will be a but of pressure to include our champion if at all possible assuming they only have 1 loss since it has been 3 years.
