  1. Really? All the ones in our section were pretty cool, despite the fact I can be loud and obnoxious at times. This is good to hear. Could be that I just got stuck with some of the more drunk and rambunctious Purdue fans. Maybe. The people around us were pretty sober and most of them weren't the youngest.
  2. And as far as SJB's hit, I was very close to the field on that end and it sure as heck looked like first contact was made with I his shoulder and the helmet to helmet was incidental and really minor compared to what I've seen.

  4. I was at the game, down by the field where they carted him off and where he came back by in street clothes and crutches. Looked like he was in ALOT of pain, and the had ice and a stiff brace on it when he came back out.
  5. Like dergibog mentioned, I was thinking maybe it was actually strategic as far as snap count/signaling. Makes sense, as the white would really stand out for the center looking back.
  6. kickoff defense. 98th of 99 teams who have a kickoff this year. We have some work to do. I hope you're at least a little sarcastic. That's through 1 game, and most of that yardage came on one blown kickoff. A tiny sample size will do that. It's not like we gave up 40 yard returns every time.
  7. I appreciate the consideration and apology. My wife is a speech language pathologist and I myself spent 9 years in speech therapy for stuttering and a slight lisp. It's a common thing for people to make fun of so I'm pretty used to it, but alot of people don't realize how difficult a speech problem can make things. I was lucky and had a good speech therapist, I ended up working in retail for a long time, a job where I had to talk constantly. Now I'm in corrections so it's not as big of a deal, but it's amazing the diffence a good speech therapist can make in someone's life.

    Don't get me wrong, I love our band and enjoyed their show when we I went to a game in Lincoln a couple years ago. But, living in Big 10 country myself and having actually practiced with and marched with the Marching Illini at a game (in high school during a band day), the Big 10 takes their marching bands alot more seriously than Nebraska has up to this point, and it shows, especially if you've ever been in a marching band.
  9. Ya, he looks awkward, but if he gets more used to his size and even learns fundamentals, his size will kill. You can teach defense, shooting, passing, etc., but you can't teach size.
  10. Congdon is the last kicker that I can remember that I would consider average or worse. The thing about Congdon was that he was very accurate, but his distance on his kicks was lacking big time. Inside 40 he was money, but the kicks 40-55 are usually what matters and are what you have to kick with the game on the line, and he didn't have the leg for them.
  11. Apparently, Notre Dame has shifted from recruiting him as an ATH to recruiting him as a QB. For him, I would be leery of the sudden change as a ploy to get him on board to do whatever they want to do with him position-wise.
  12. I'm kinda getting tired of it. I'm on All American, playing as Boston College in my Dynasty. I'm stuck on a game vs. Notre Dame. Now, don't get me wrong, I have no problem losing, but I've played the game 10 times now. They run the 3-3-5 which my O-line apparently cannot comprehend for pass pro. I have all of 1 second to pass, and usually I get called for a hold in that 1 second if I manage to get the ball off. Their QB is balls fast and doesn't miss when he throws even when sprinting, while my QB can't get it within 10 feet of the WR when if he is planted and looking straight at the guy
  13. I haven't yet. Just don't feel like I can commit to consistently taking care of a team enough to really do it. I am working on an offline dynasty though. Spent 4 years as the OC for Nebraska, then took the HC job at Boston College. Waiting for the HC job at Nebraska to open up now.
  14. Thought he needed another foreign language class for ND as well, for NU I think he needs a geometry class. Those are both for January enrollment, that is. If he ends up not trying to enroll in January, I think our chances of landing him go way up.
  15. The only option plays I see any consistent success out of are the Power Option out of the Wishbone and the Speed option out of the Pistol-Ace/Shotgun-Ace/Ace. In order to get the speed option to work though, I have to shift the off-side TE to the run side. I will say, outside of the option I really do like the running game. The passing game draw my ire more than anything. I've played seasons upon seasons, and haven't seen a single Pass Interference call but constantly see DB's warping through WR's to break up passes or intercept them. That, and the fact that MLB's have 4 foot verticals
