Chugunov 4 Heisman. Calling it right now.
Unprecedented secrecy on this one. Not one leak? This is up there with UFOs and the Kennedy assassination.
The Sports Illustrated article on the game showed LaValliere making the tag; Bream's foot was not yet touching the plate. That's my basis.
Reminds me of Bob Uecker in Major League 2.
You know, I used to hate Parkman when he was with the A's. It's funny how a new uniform can change your attitude about a guy. *covers the mic, aside to Monty* He's still a dick!
Top 5 worst calls I've ever seen, in any sport, but mostly football:
2000 NFC title game, Bucs-Rams. The Bert Emanuel catch that got overturned and called incomplete because God forbid Tony Dungy's boring offense get into the Super Bowl over "the Greatest Show on Turf". One of only two sports conspiracy theories that I believe in to this day. (The other involves why the Patriots are the dynasty that they are, but that's another post.)
The Denzel Ward targeting/ejection call.
1992 NLCS, Pirates-Braves. Game 7. Sid Bream was out at the plate. I'll believe that until the day I die.
Chris Gamble's catch-that-wasn't against the Canes that would have put the game on ice.
That travesty no-call in the Superdome on Sunday.
It must have been one hell of a team rule (or a few together) that he broke. Living here in the Tampa Bay area, I was rooting for the kid. USF could use the help; maybe he resets here.
first losing season since Night Court.
Rule #5 of surviving a horror movie:
As a general rule, never solve a puzzle that opens a portal to Hell.
Or, in this case, Ann Arbor.
Yeah, Tate's woofing has gotten a bit hard to hear. It's not like he can't win the job, I just think he thinks he's owed something, and that's not how it works at this level.
Of course, Fields responding to Tate's Tweet-storm by not responding and instead liking Tate's sister's bikini pics... savage.
Good luck, young man, in whatever you do. Except if it's against us. Until then...
Would that be... ruthless aggression?
Can someone post those here? Because science.
Thanks for a hell of a season, young man. Go get paid, and bring your new team a championship.
From the Mgo thread on the topic:

Maybe this is what we need to shake up our offense. "Oh snap, Coach Matty knows this offense too well after defending against it every practice for 4 years. I guess we'll have to pass on first down every once in a while!"
Anyway, I'll wait until I see the results on the field to form an opinion.
I'll reserve judgment until I see the results on the field. The staff isn't even rounded out yet. If we get both Mattison and Washington, perhaps there's a DC-in-waiting arrangement or some such. But again, until we see how everything comes out on the field in September, I'm going to wait to throw Day under the proverbial bus.
Taking the "interim" tag off of Hartline is being considered a Day move, plus Yurcich, plus the possibility/probability of Washington. Guessing Washington will do both LBs and special teams.
We're assuming the Giants get Haskins (which would be a damn good landing spot), but there's a possibility that whoever takes over down here in Tampa Bay (Koetter has been gone for weeks now without actually being gone) will want to start over with his own guy over Jameis Winston and take Haskins before the Giants can get him. That assumes, as suggested earlier in the thread, the Giants or the Jags don't bombard the 49ers with draft picks.
If Haskins is the pick for the Bucs, expect them to try to bring FitzMagic back for one more year to let Haskins get acclimated and then take over in 2020.
