    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    I was referring to moral judgement, not the legality

    Does it matter if the intent was to strictly embarrass a consensual party vs re-victimize an assault victim?

    Does one documented instance of a teen shaming another constitute low character?

    You're right. I may have been a bit hasty.

    Even if that happens, I hope he is kicked off the team. That's a horrific thing to say to an assault victim. I don't want that cancer in the locker room.

    2019 Season Prediction Thread

    1. Minnesota dramatically improved after switching D-coordinators, which occurred after we played them, and finished the season with wins against Purdue, Wisconsin, and GT. 2. They shredded our defense after switching quarterbacks. That game would have been a thriller if Morgan started the entire game. 3. They were one of the youngest teams in the entire country, so I'm assuming their potential for improvement would be greater than most 4. Scott Frost is awesome and we will continue to improve, but don't sleep on Coach Fleck. What he did at Western Michigan was remarkable Edit: 5. The game is at their place

    Going to Drive This

    I daily a 2005 Camry, but I really want one of those new Honda Ridgelines. Comfy, roomy, and immensely practical.
  9. Who were the respondents for that poll? Gen pop? Politicians?

    Extremely impressed with the new staff on the recruiting trail

    It appears to me that Coach Held is in no position to fat shame anyone

    2019 Season Prediction Thread

    Good points. A couple games slipped through our grasp (CU, NW) and the Troy game would have been a win with Adrian, but I would argue that some of our wins could have ended differently as well- they were not convincing. The Illinois game was a shootout and may have had a different outcome if they had not gifted us 5 turnovers (we gave 2 back) and multiple dropped passes. The Minnesota game was essentially over at halftime, but we were evenly matched after they switched quarterbacks. Its hard to take much away from the MSU game due to the severe conditions. Our guys fought hard, but that game felt like a coin flip. The yardage vs points discrepancy was frustrating, but improved throughout the season as we reduced our turnovers/penalties and our O-line developed chemistry. It took several games and personnel changes for the O-line to come together. 2019 is a new season with new faces at the skill positions and on the O-line. It's impossible to know how many turnovers or penalties the newcomers will commit. It's impossible to know the amount of time required, if any, before the O-line is able to maintain consistent execution- especially in the red zone. There are plenty of reasons for optimism and I think we will continue to improve as team, but there are many unknowns, unproven players, and lack of depth on both sides of the ball. I would love a double digit win season, but I have my doubts.
  12. I just finished the first season of Patriot on Amazon Prime. It centers around an intelligence officer who works in private industry. It's full of dark, offbeat humor and suspense- I highly recommend it.

    As you pointed out, 10 does not equate to 10+. Personally, I think 10 wins is absolute best case scenario in year 2 and I'm not surprised that SOME people chose that in the poll, but I am surprised that roughly a quarter of participants did and even moreso that roughly another quarter chose 11/12 wins. I assumed the bell curve would rest lower on the graph. So the fact that the majority (~54% currently) of those polled believe we will match or exceed my wildest team expectations is outrageous to me.

    I never said 10 wins was outrageous
