    Buckeyes 30, Some Team in Yellow and Blue 13.


    The Buckeyes defense is insane this year and that yellow and blue team hasn't played anybody other than PSU.


    Ever wonder why Tom Brady isn't there at the game? It's bizarre


    OSU played basically the same schedule,  plus ND. ND is better than the rest of Michigan's schedule for sure,  but they're not a top tier team either.  


    It should be a close game, especially as Michigan's offense hasn't looked great the past few weeks, and like usual,  this game is a toss up. 


    24-20 UM.

    Schools over stadiums lawsuit seems to be the only chance left.  As an A's fan for 35 years, this sucks.  Taking one of the oldest franchises with over 55 years in a huge market to one of the smallest markets in the league.  Makes no sense.  Such a greedy POS. 


    I do 100% agree with the greed, but even as a large market, they average less than 10,000 fans per game.

    A couple of concrete suggestions:


    1) Defensive Pass Interference is the single biggest game changer.   I think the rules would be much improved if there were two versions of DPI (like there is with fask masking, or roughing the kicker).  Flagrant/Intentional spot foul as it is now.  Incidental, same as defensive holding, five yards automatic first down.  Obviously this involves some judgement, still but I think it would be better. 


    2)Roughing the Passer.  Another game changer. Like roughing the kicker, I feel like there needs to be a five yard and 15 yard version.   Again, it involves judgement, but I think we all know that when they wait until Patrick Mahomes requests the RTP call, it likely means it was not flagrant, as one example. 



    There aren't 2 facemask penalties anymore.  They are all 15 yards.

    It sure was... defenseless receiver in the back of the end zone. A dirty hit and targeting... 


    Shoulder to shoulder. That's not targeting.  It's was even overturned on review.

    Let's be honest, the dirty hit on Marvin and the refs not calling the dirty hit as targeting pretty much did that.


    It wasn't a dirty hit.

    if you know the other teams plays,  know when they run them,  its an order of magnitude easier to stop them or take advantage of them.  end of story.   talent matters yes,  but knowing another teams plays ahead of time so you can easily counter them and give your players a huge advantage is not in the spirit of any game.   in the very least,  its extremely unsportsmanlike,  and it cheapens what happens on the field by the players.   when you cheapen what occurs on the field,  it cheapens the game as a whole,  and people will stop taking it seriously as fans.


    for example.  if, hypothetically, there was a QB who plays amazing in college,  everybody wants him,  gets to the NFL and suddenly cant do anything close to what he did in college when it comes to reading the field.  people dig and find out his college coaches knew the opposing defenses plays,  allowing that QB to know exactly where and when to throw with relative ease and safety,  thats a player who is a FRAUD!!!!.  Fraud player goes on to cost others their jobs,  money,  reputation,  etc because he isnt what they thought he was.


    we assume as fans that every game is a somewhat level playing field rules wise.  you take that away and you become "professional" wrestling.

    if yer not cheating,  yer not trying hard enough,   is not a valid excuse at the amateur level,  and frankly,  the pro level as well.


    how some cant seem to grasp this boggles the mind.


    Which recent Michigan draft pick has been a major bust?  Not all have panned out, but most are very good to at least above average, and those that aren't are mostly late rounders.  So which are frauds?  Hutchinson?  Kwity Paye?  Dax Hill? DJ Turner? Mazi Smith?  The only somewhat high pick that i would say has disappointed has been Luke Schoonmaker, but he is a backup TE in his first year.

  7. I am not sure why this is surprising to anyone. Allen is what he is:  Supremely talented, and a top tier QB.  But he has always been somewhat careless with the ball.  Trusts his arm a bit too much, and can make boneheaded plays at times.  You get the bad with the good sometimes.  And he runs more than most QBs, so he has more opportunities to fumble, and he really doesn't avoid contact either. 


    He has improved his accuracy since being in the NFL, and most of his INTs that I have seen aren't poor accuracy, but more poor decision making.

    Contracts are prorated and the cap hit is lower after signing bonuses are taken into account. 


    Yeah, I understand that.  The website I saw mentioned he had a base salary of $12M, which generally isn't including the bonuses.  I see now that it is on the site.  Jewell does have a base salary of $4.49M plus roster bonuses by game.

    I'm pretty sure the NFLPA agreement is that draftees salaries are predetermined.  All in dollars, not in property.  This is going nowhere.


    Williams won the Heisman last year.  This year there are at least two QBs in the PAC-12 alone who are better.  Wiliams is by no means a lock on the first overall pick, or to be the first QB taken.  Chicago has the first two picks next spring, unless it or Carolina starts winning, and may still be clinging to Justin Fields as the future, in which case either they'll trade one of those picks, or not picks a QB at all.



    I see no way that after his 3rd season, if Chicago ends up at #1 or #2 pick that they can stick with Fields.  He has improved some this year, but if they are still that bad it would at least be in part because he isn't that good.

    Purdy has been exposed. Looks like the party is over.


    Bit early for that.  The dude is now 12-2 in his career, and his playoff loss is when he was already hurt. He's 6 games into his second year.  Everyone has a bad game from time to time,  and Cleveland's defense is legit.

    Hamas is a terrorist group. they are beheading children while laughing about it, babies!, raping and killing women, then parading their dead bodies around the streets, burning elderly women alive, and then posting the ***** on social media. This isn’t collateral damage from unfortunate warfare it’s mid-evil barbarism and genocide.


    they busted in, invaded Israel and kidnapped and killed hundreds and hundreds of civilians. 

    listen to their propaganda- it’s not free our selves or claim some land back, it’s kill every last Jew on the planet. They have no purpose other than to kill or be killed. 

    these people are the most cruel violent and savage actors we have seen. 

    They deserve what’s coming now. 


    Right, I honestly don't disagree with anything you said.  Hamas will hopefully get what's coming to them, and I am almost certain they will. 


    My point being, while heinous, Israel has been doing similar things to Palestine for decades.  Maybe not to such extremes, but they have killed thousands and thousands of Palestinians, so I can at least understand why people would join Hamas in that region.  Now, how they can then commit some of the atrocities I have no idea, specially to civilians, and children.  Wanting revenge I think is almost a basic human emotion.  But to commit that revenge in such an extreme way against people who individually have nothing to do with the atrocities, I have no idea how anyone ever gets to that level of extremism.

    Now Omar is ramping it up will calls to defund Israel accusing them of war crimes..  so in short a Hamas sympathizer, a terrorist sympathizer. 


    That's not entirely true.  I in no way support Hamas and their attacks.  They are targeting civilians, and among them many women and children.  That's awful, and the completely wrong way to go about trying to fight for their freedom.


    My issue is that both sides of this are committing war crimes, but here in the US, we only call out Palestinians for it.  Israel has been murdering civilians for decades, imprisoning people indefinitely, and lobbing bombs across the border and killing whoever may be in the area.  Both sides are awful here, and have been for years.

    Has any team blown the high 1st round pick for QB while in the same draft getting the steal of the decade?  What an incredible turn of events for Lynch and the 49's. 


    One thing SF has to do though is redo BP's contract soon before the end of this year if they can.  Right now he is the most underpaid player in the NFL. 




    Washington took RG3 and Cousins in the same draft.  Cousins gets flack now,  but he was a steal for where he was picked.  


    And I don't believe they can negotiate with Purdy until after next season.
