Nahh, no one needs to be off six weeks in the crappiest weather of the year and then trade it off by being in school until early June. I would rather have most of September as part of my summer break.

I will be the smart ass, 1/1/2021 is the National Semi Finals, hopefully for us in the Rose Bowl, which happens to be a Friday, so I will amend this to a year and a couple months from now, is when I hope to play again on a Friday!

Here are the batting leaders in baseball last year.   Compare this from a list of the leaders in say, 1995, and it is shocking to me how many of them are guys even I have either never heard of, or heard of very little.  I have bolded the guys that I think the semi serious general ( not just baseball ) fan knows. 

Mike Trout

Christian Yelich

Alex Bregman

Nelson Cruz

Cody Bellinger

George Springer

Anthony Rendon

Ketel Marte

Jeff McNeil

So, three out of nine, if I am extremely generous about people knowing who Chrisian Yelich and Cody Bellinger are.  It is shocking to me how far and fast Baseball has dropped off the national scene. Hell, maybe it is the Royals fault!  Nahh, probably those 4 hour 9 inning games!

It seems as if many aspects of the spread offense that were advantages 10-15 years ago are now easily defended as defenses have caught on and are built to beat that side to side action where the H back comes into play.  This year especially, I have seen even a few I formation plays set up to exploit a defense up the middle, where they have made themselves weak committing to defeat the spread. 

Comment 13 Oct 2019

116 yards 1 TD and a 4.5 YPC today, not too bad!  The guy that the Chiefs traded him for has not seen the field, and their own running game has been anemic.

Comment 09 Oct 2019

Unfortunately no, a few years back someone ( the NCAA?) ruled that 6-6 teams are bowl eligible.  This is a farce and should be repealed.  In fact, we should go back to about 20 or so bowl games, but unfortunately they have become ESPN programming for the period between Dec 17 and the end of the year, akin to Tuesday night MAC-tion. This is a shame,because for 75 or so years after 1935, when the Orange, Sugar and Cotton Bowls started, bowls were a reward for an exceptional season. Now they are dumbed down like everything else. 

Comment 07 Oct 2019

Agreed, we need to get back to 3 hour games. There is no need for a non overtime game to go more than 3 hours 15 min even with commercials.  Hell, games that weren't televised sometimes were barely over 2.5 hours long.  We just get more boredom and standing around, and on TV watching the horrendous commercials over and over again.

As an old school fan, I will always miss 11 straight games starting the Saturday after Labor Day, and ending the weekend before Thanksgiving, leaving Thanksgiving weekend open for family activities. Alas, that is not the way it goes now as the prime weekends for football in October and early November are littered with garbagey bye weeks....

Comment 07 Oct 2019

Remember the gauntlet we have to run at the end of the year: 

Penn State

UM ( Almost always tough, remember 2013 and even 2007 and 2009 where the games were much more difficult than indicated by the team's records) 

Big 10 championship game, possibly a rematch with Wisconsin. 

Lets not get ahead of ourselves.

Except for the weird font for the numbers, they are basically the Louisville uniform. I'm not sure why recruits would go wild for a copy of that uniform.

Comment 04 Oct 2019

When was the last true snow game, not the game at Minnesota shown above where a few flurries came down, I mean playing in accumulating snow?  It has to be decades, maybe even all the way back to the snow game of all snow games, the 1950 Snow Bowl.  Now as a student in the 1980's, I remember all day RAIN games all too well. 

Comment 27 Sep 2019

If you look at Nebraska's schedules during their glory years, they only ever had two difficult games, and sometimes only one.  Once they started to have to play a decent schedule they folded like the cheap tent that they are.  

Comment 24 Sep 2019

If OSU and ND have the same record, I think OSU gets in because of ND's crappy performance last year, and OSU has had so many near misses, it is time to give them the edge. I am more concerned if it is vs an SEC team, as they have the aura of being better with the same record, whether it is true or not. 

No losses- We are in

One loss- 50/50, depending on everyone elses' record. 

Comment 22 Sep 2019

Just the lack of things to worry about, I mean the second quarter against FAU and the first half of the first quarter yesterday is about the only thing you can even nit pick at this point!
