Oh no - Herbstreit "spent time with the IU quarterback".  This means he will have to go all Mariota on the kid - "...Lagow is just one of the best people I've ever had the pleasure of interviewing. I wish he was my son in law"...

Kirk will be lost in Lagow Land.

I still have trouble listening to the NC game, with Kirk bending over backwards to be nice to Oregon. I understand it's part of his job and he doesn't want to be seen as a homer but he really went overboard with it.

I think the 6 is what I expected, and now I expect it to get knocked down to 4.

I believe what magnifies everything he did in the eyes of the league is that he has one of the top 2 or 3 top selling jerseys in the NFL, he was Offensive Rookie of the Year, a superstar.  and the league is looking at him, and his speeding ticket, and his pulling the woman's shirt down, and everything else and they are just scared to make a star out of this guy.  If he was a relative unknown player it would not be so critical.

And yes, it's fair to Zeke.  If you want to be the man, considered the best, if you have any dreams about making it in to the Hall of Fame, be a good person, not just a great player. IMHO that's not too much to ask.

yes but...

....watching The Game from last year, and he was in a BRAWL for 60 minutes plus 2OTs.  I mean, it's a cliché, but the hitting is brutal in that game, and he was right in the middle of it, and he came out okay. 

So maybe this falls under the "freak injury" category.  Certainly a huge bummer!  I hope he is mentally and spiritually strong!

IIRC, the story was that he spent a few months trying to talk to the university about changing their policies.  They wouldn't so he brought the paper.

I think it will come down to the point of consent - the players sign a waiver saying it's okay for the university to use their image, name, etc.  Spielman's stance is that that's fine for 3-4 years of schooling, but once you're out, if you have become famous while playing at tOSU, is it fair that as a 18 year old you supposedly waived your rights to all this income? No.  The lawsuit says the students cannot possibly give INFORMED CONSENT at such a stage in their lives.  It's unfair and overreaching to try to hold a grown man, famous athlete/TV personality to a form he signed as a freshman in college.

anyways,  the sport, and the university will survive all of this.

eh, the foul kinda came right AFTER he shot it.  I was wondering later if Lighty was trying to get the shot AND the foul.  it was bang bang but he missed the bunny.  Tough. and yeah, Craft's final foul was pretty damn weak.  I think the guy fell down all on his own.

Hickerson was the real deal.  And just as he was getting famous everybody was talking about Jerry Kramer for the Pack.  I mean, Kramer was great, but no better than Hickerson.  I also saw Gary Collins out there blocking.  I'm gonna watch the rest of it and see if I can spot the TE, Chip Glass.  That was his name, for real, right?

showing my age, I know.

Too bad for Leroy Kelly, we usually turned on the games after a big Sunday noon pasta dinner, and I'd be asleep by the end of the first quarter!

IMHO our passing game has struggled because we are so paranoid about interceptions.  Hopefully they will tell JT that an interception won't get him benched, AND they will also tell the receivers that if they don't go get that ball, then make damned sure the DB doesn't pick it off. 

I love receivers who catch the ball like they're getting a hoops rebound.  Maybe that's why Ricky Dudley had some success catching the ball, he knew how to hoop.

If what we hear about Kevin Wilson is true, we'll see a more open passing game - which will also... wait for it..... open it up for the running game! 

Over or under - how  many 600 yard games will the Bucks have this year?  I say 6.
