There's a list of things pissing me off in College Football...

We are about halfway through the season guys and there are so many things that are pissing me off i'm about to explode. Boom_Boom has the 10 things we learned today i have Packers1992's list of people/things who piss me off. Some you'll agree with some you won't. Lets get at it:
1  FSU plays Notre Dame this week and if you saw ND vs UNC and the Tar Heels scored 43 points you'd think FSU would lick their chops but FSU IMO hasn't earned the right to lick their chops. They are a joke all the way around as a team. Lot of talk about Winston since now they may have a "Trial" for him. Nothing comes of it IMO. I said it LY i'll say it again i don't know if Winston is guilty of sexual assault as only 2 people know the answer to that but as of now he's guilty of being an idiot/jacka$$
Winston's dad has said a lot of things and by the way he did just an A-OK job raising Jameis huh? I came to this conclusion and i will get heat for this but what else is new. Jameis Winston needs a mentor,he needs a man he can admire and strive to be like. He needs a man who can show him how to be a man. And guys i am that man. Jameis Winston should strive to be like me not the other way around. I keep it in my pants,drink pepsi and watch Everybody Loves Raymond and i don't get accused of this crap. If Winston keeps this up he'll be working for me at Packers1992 inc. Get your head out of your a$$ Winston
2. Todd Gurley got suspended for selling his autograph for $8-25 per item and everyone i... [More]

OH Billy Beane sabermetric defenders where are you?

Guys I don't enjoy much in life but i enjoyed last night. I enjoyed watching the Oakland A's become the Oakland A's as they choked yet again. I know you shouldn't delight in others failings but i'm not most people. Mr. Moneyball went against his own principles when he traded for Lester and Samardzija and his arrogance bit him in the end. Billy Beane who said "Everything that happens in the postseason is arbitrary" Traded for Lester and Samardzija aka Clayton Kershaw because all of you tell me thats who Samardzija is to win in the postseason. And Beane gets no heat for it
By the way i love the way Beane justifies his failings. The postseason is arbitrary i don't hear GM's who've you know won a world series say the postseason is arbitrary. Brian Cashman never says "We've won 5 World Series but that was arbitrary you know a bounce of a ball we don't have any world series titles" Keyelement in case you are reading this when you saw the D-Backs win in 01 with Johnson and Schilling that was arbitrary. You didn't win because you had 2 of the best pitchers in MLB.
As said as the Beane defenders are Brian Kenny must feel worse. the A's lost. That 2017 world series for the Astros won't be happening after hiring AJ Hinch  BTW AJ Hinch?Don Wakamatsu not available? And Beane catches no heat despite the fact that he is one of the biggest chokers in MLB. What has moneyball won? Nothing. In my eyes there are winners and losers i know sabermetrics geeks don't want to hear that but ... [More]

3 weeks in and ESPN is ruining my love of the 4 team playoff....

Guys there's been a lot of talk about the playoff since it was announced. Some like 4 teams some want 8 16 etc. I've gone on record that i hope the 4 team playoff stays at 4 for the rest of my life obviously it won't but nevertheless. Everytime i watch a game on ESPN you hear people who have no clue talk about the 4 team playoff and 3 weeks in i already miss the BCS

BYU on Thursday Night you have the 3 doucheateers in the booth saying "If BYU goes 12-0 and Texas wins the Big 12 and Utah State wins the Mountain West and train69 poops on my porch BYU can be in the playoff" Look i like BYU but A they won't got 12-0 and B so its just assumed they'll beat Boise on the smurf turf? Boise who has gone 65-3 on the Smurf turf over 10.5 years BYU will whip them huh?

And then you hear who's your 4 teams this week? Who gives a crap. All of this will be settled on the field. I know ESPN sucks but why do they have to ruin the playoff? Why? I love college football and i love the playoff but i'm getting diabetes from this crap

Please tell me i'm not the only one annoyed by this

Its time for my 2014 predictions....

Hey guys i've been out of commission for the last month and a half with illness and my pc having issues. Not fun for me but its good to be back. Been watching a lot of old college football games the last few weeks on my DVR and my juices are flowing for college football. I can't write-up all 128 FBS teams this year and i know you were all looking forward to my write-ups on UMASS,Ga.Southern and ODUbut those will have wait until next year. I'm doing a write-up on 23 predictions that i have for the upcoming season. I call them Mr.Cranky's football predictions. Lets not waste more time guys
1. The Akron Zips will go 9-3, finish 2nd in the MAC East division and beat Penn State2. Alabama will go 10-2 this year losing to Ole Miss and they'll lose 1 game they shouldn't all because Lane Kiffin is the OC3. Army will go 8-4 and win the Commander in Chief trophy4. LY's darling team Auburn will start the year 7-0 finish the year 2-3 to have a 9 win season. Better Auburn team worse record5. Florida will finish 2nd in the SEC East Division behind Georgia6. I have LSU going 9-3 but i've learned over the years whatever record you think LSU will have go one win less because Les Miles usually loses 1 he shouldn't so i'll call for 8-4 for LSU after all Kentucky is on the schedule this year7. Maryland will go 5-7 in yr 1 in the BIg 10 their 7th loss coming to Rutgers led by new OC Ralph Friedgen. You think its just a coincidence that Friedgen ends up at Rutgers right as both Rutgers and MD jo... [More]

Alabama HC Nick Saban says he would have no issue with bringing a Happy player to Alabama...

And yes covers won't allow us to use that 3 letter word that rhymes with pay so i saved covers the hassle I came across an article where Saban was asked about the Michael Sam situation and about football players with a different sexual preference and he was asked about recruiting such player and he said the following:

On signing a player who's open about his sexual preference" As long as we respect them and they respect us i would have no problem with it" He also comment that he has no issue because he played on teams with "Folks like that" His words not mine

I'm 1 of about 9 people outside of Alabama who likes Nick Saban but i call Bullsh*T on this one. Look Saban has to say that otherwise the media will go nuts and try to crucify him for what he said. The reason i call B.S. is Saban LY when asked about AJ McCarron being on the cover of SI and about Katherine Webb said and i quote"I don't read newspapers and the only tv i watch is the Weather Channel for 10 minutes a day to see if we can practice indoors or outdoors"

Lets pretend for a minute that Michael Sam had played for Alabama. Saban got pissed having to answer questions about AJ and Katherine Webb and magazine covers etc. Do You really think Saban would want to be asked about Michael Sam and his boyfriend? C'mon guys i was born at night but not last night

And i'll catch heat for what i'm about to say but i catch crap for a lot of things i say. I think Missouri,Pinkel and the pla... [More]

Am i the only one tired of MLB teams wearing Camo jerseys?

I bring this up guys because yesterday in flipping through the channels i noticed the Reds had a camo jersey and hat on for their game vs the Blue Jays. I've noticed that the Pirates have a camo jersey now same goes with the Mets. I'm just really getting tired of the camo jerseys

I wanted to put this up after Memorial Day but never found the time. On Memorial Day all 30 teams wore their regular jersey with the Logos and hats in Camo. I felt and maybe i'm the only one but that was despicable by MLB to do that. I'm all for honoring the troops who make it so shmucks like us can complain about teams who blow 3 run leads in the 9th inning. But wearing Camo isn't honoring them it minimalizes what a soldier is

Now San Diego was the 1st team to do this i think 15 years ago and they do a great job with Military Sunday and i believe are the only baseball team to wear the camo jerseys for the right reasons. In the college football forum i've said many a time i'm tired of these teams who have 73 different uniforms and helmets because it gets to the point of being ridiculous. I don't have an issue with oregon doing that because they were the 1st to do it

I'm going to wrap this up guys with the point that the Camo jerseys for the 29 other MLB teams has to stop. We aren't honoring the troops... We are spitting in their face to make a quick buck

That's my opinion guys. Agree or disgaree?

Its time for Tigers fans to accept that the Tigers are phoning it in...

Its sucks to say it but i've accepted it and that is the fact the Tigers just don't give a crap. They show up when they want to and other times they get a roll of stamps and mail it in. There are a few guys who play hard the rest just don't. The 2 best starters for the Tigers right now are Sanchez and Porcello..... That is not good.

Verlander has been doing this for a year and a half now. Verlander stopped pitching hard the minute he got his money. Scherzer has 1 foot out the door thinking about free agency because he ain't staying in Detroit that ship has sailed

Hell it doesn't matter who plays Shortstop for the Tigers and if you don't believe me ask Mario Impemba and Rod Allen{I hate Impemba and i should be a play by play guy in MLB but thats another thread for another day}

Basically the Tigers players are stealing money from a dying man that man being the owner Mike Ilitch. Most people around baseball don't know but most Tigers fans do Ilitch has battled a crap-load of health issues over the past few years and some believe his time is running out and he desprately wants to see a World Series Championship before he dies. His players they don't seem to play with heart especially guys Verlander who has basically admitted he doesn't go all out anymore trying to "Save Bullets for the postseason"

I'm afraid i have some bad news for Mr.Verlander. With the way you're pitching Justin the Tigers won't make postseason. I'll go on record he... [More]

Jerry Remy doesn't belong in the Red Sox booth anymore....

No one else in the country has written much negative about Remy especially in the wake of his son pleading guilty to murder and he'll go to jail for life. So i guess i have to be the one to do this. In the wake of what has transpired i believe Remy has no business in that Red Sox booth going forward

The Boston and national media have protected Remy mainly IMO to make sure they can get interviews down the line but i believe in the truth. The truth is Remy enabled his son over years and years with jobs and paying for high priced lawyers who got his son's charges dropped time and time again as Jared Remy threatened to hurt women, Had at least 20 incidents with the law and eventually killed a woman. Remy supported him and got him a job as a security guard at Fenway park. Jared Remy's job was to protect peopleYeah that's a guy i want to protect me

But Remy failed with his 2 other children who have had multiple incidents with police over the years so basically as a parent Jerry Remy is 0-3. So while Remy was playing air guitar on the desk in the Fenway Booth his kids were destroying lives.

I will say Jerry Remy isn't a monster... BUT he didn't stop a monster the monster who was his son. He enabled his son and even told the murder victim the day before she was killed not to get a restraining order against him. She didn't and the next day you know the story.

I don't expect the Red Sox to fire Remy because well they're the Red Sox. But i'm suprised R... [More]

Hey guys when are the Indians going to get rid of their racist logo?

As i sit here and i get ready to call the Tigers-Indians game{I call games and tape them so i can listen back and if you don't like it bite me} I wonder when are the Indians going to get rid of that stupid insensitive racist Chief Wahoo logo. i'm not 1 of these folks who wants the name Redskins changed hell i've always been offended by the logo. Its a dumb logo and i wonder when the Indians will wake up and realize that the logo should be changed Because it will change. Agree or disagree?

The SEC media thinks we're booger eaters for wanting the SEC to play 9 conference games...

For those of you who follow college football in the offseason you know a couple weeks ago the SEC decided to keep playing 8 conference games,also keep the cross division rivalry game and choose to play 1 power 5 conference school every year in non-conference. It was a comment by SEC writer Tony Barnhart that really ticke me off basically insinuating you and i eat our boogers. here's the quote "This isn't the NFL conferences are free to do as they please. Pac-12 wants to play 9 good for them" Tony doesn't seem to get why you and i would like to see big conferences play 9 games. And i'll tell you why

1st off i'm not an SEC hater because anytime you criticize the SEC for anything you get labeled as a hater. But as of now 2 of the power 5 leagues play 9 conference games{Big 12 and Pac-12} In 2016 the Big 10 joins them in playing 9 conference games. Is the Big 10 better than the SEC because they'll play 9 know. But these 3 leagues realized the following things:

1. In the new world order of college football which is the 4 team playoff you want to play as many good games as possible in conference as well as out of conference. If you have a good record and,you play good teams you'll likely make it in the 4 team playoff

2. Dare i say fans want to watch good games? That we as college football fans/bettors get tired of Florida vs Diaharrea Soup college? And we'd rather see Florida play Ole Miss? Does that make me the antichrist Tony? But here's another im... [More]

Am i a bad person for not wanting the Cubs to win the World Series?

I've thought about this for a while because when i was young i loved the Cubs. I remember watching games on WGN with my Grandma who recently passed away[My favorite player was Mark Grace} I remember 1998 when they were a wildcard and lost to the Braves but that was more of a magic carpet ride type of team

In 2003 that was the best i'd seen the Cubs play and if they had gotten past the Marlins in the NLCS IMO they would've beat the Yankees in 6 games but we'll never know. I think 2008 did me in in terms of rooting for the Cubs. 97 wins and they got swept by the Dodgers. I remember in Game 3 it was late and my Dad walked into the room as i was just disappointed and he said the following things to me

" Son you see that team on the field? That's the Cubs. And they'll always be the Cubs. People look at the Red Sox differently because they won 2 world series but you know what they are? They're the Red Sox and they'll always be the Red Sox. The Indians LY blew a 3-1 series lead to Boston you know why son? Because they're the Indians and they'll always be the Indians" I looked at my Dad and i said they broke my heart and he looked at me the way a father can look at a son and said "I'm Sorry"

My Dad passed away about 2 years ago and he was right. i stopped rooting for the Cubs years ago. I just don't care anymore about them. I bring this up because as i've mentioned here before i sit at home and call baseball games and record them to get better at announcing... [More]

Am i the only baseball fan who likes Instant Replay?

Any time i turn on the tv you have people who are whining about the new replay system. I guess i'm the only 1 who likes it. I think the replay system is very good. Are there flaws?Obviously especially with the dumb transfer rule. When i heard about this being implemented for this season i thought this will be a tire fire. But overall i like replay and the main reason is i hate umpires and i like when they get made to look stupid.

If you've ever read any of my baseball stuff you know that i'm done with umpires as a whole and i'm hopeful in the next few years we'll have the computerized strike zone. And i'm sorry i like when they get made to look like the incompent a-holes that most of them are. Going forward i'd like to see a few tweaks to the system such as:

1. A replay umpire in the stadium

2. If a manger wins 2 challenges he gets a 3rd. If he wins a 3rd he gets a 4th etc.

I'm not shocked by the negativity i'm shocked that there are still people who want the "Human element" in baseball and they're tradionalists. Guess what tradition died a long time ago. MLB is an 8 billion dollar business partly due to a DH,and interleague play etc. Get rid of replay? I want more

I'll ask you gentlemen. Do you like replay or am i the only 1

Dear ESPN i don't care about an athlete's sexual preference....

I write this because Derrick Gordon a star player from UMASS decided to come out of the closet today and now the world as we know it is much better than it was and how i'm supposed to now bow down his altar. Look i give Gordon credit for saying it but the fact is gentlemen i don't care. I don't care what sexual preference a player has. And most of all i'm tired of the media telling me to care

The funniest thing is those who believe" Well Jason collins,Michael Sam and now Gordon they've all come out so now everything has changed" Not really it hasn't. This isn't Andrew Wiggins,Jabari Parker or Shabazz Napier coming out this is Derrick Gordon. Until you get a true star to come out nothing will change. Come November when the season starts guys are you going to watch a UMASS game and say"Hey there's Derrick Gordon who's sexual preference is different than mine" No you won't and neither will i. When he misses free throws to cost us a cover we'll cuss him out but it won't be because of his sexual preference

The last thing which is irritating me is stop comparing what these athletes are going through to what Jackie Robinson went through. Its not even close and thats ignorant to think. Guess what guys i've called hoops games where players sexual preferences differ from mine and you've gone to work with people who's sexual preference is different from yours and somehow life moves on. So to ESPN i have this to say. No one cares and grow up

Its time to accept Tom izzo is the Peyton Manning of college hoops head coaches...

And when i say Peyton Manning its not a compliment. Peyton Manning is 1 of the best qb's to ever play in the NFL as is Tom Izzo is 1 of the best HC's in college basketball BUT we need to quit believing this Izzo hype as we do about Manning. Peyton Manning as great as he is has come up short in big moments. Yes he has the 1 ring {albeit vs the Rex Grossman Bears}but he choked vs the Saints and crapped his pants as Seattle suffocated the Broncos 2 months ago

I had this thought on Sunday watching MSU play UCONN. I take nothing from UCONN as they earned it but i go back to Izzo and having to accept that maybe just maybe he's Peyton Manning. 6 final 4's 1 ring,Can't beat Duke or UNC,never makes an attempt to run a zone defense. When you make a comment about Manning that has any criticism all of a sudden you're a dink and the same goes with Izzo. And in my world there are no sacred cows. Everyone is fair game to criticism

I'm not an Izzo hater. I love Tom Izzo he's a yooper just like me born and raised in the U.P.of Michigan coached at Ishpeming HS etc but i'll be honest he lost me a few years ago with the flirtation with the Cleveland job and lets be honest had LeBron stayed Izzo would be coaching the Cavs right now. He had a team when he chose to stay that IMO should've been at least a Final 4 team that underachieved and basically imo those players turned on Izzo. And this year's team a veteran laden team had a good year but underachieved in postseason aga... [More]

The Joke isn't Dan Lebetard sold his HOF vote the joke is....

That he had 1. As you know LeBetard gave his HOF vote to Deadspin and he'll get stripped of his vote. I don't care about what he did because to be honest LeBetard is and always will be a joke. Without his Dad his tv show would've been cancelled by episode 2. Here's the joke

Why does Dan Lebetard have a HOF vote over a guy who knows something about baseball named Vin Scully? Who's more qualified to vote for the HOF Scully or Lebetard. Hell he wasn't the most egregious of the voters. Some dummies voting for Hideo Nomo and Jacque Jones and Richie Sexson and JT Snow give me a break BBWAA

These sanctimonious writers the same group who basically crucified the guy who saw Mcgwire's andro in his locker this same BBWAA group of booger eaters decide who gets in the HOF? Peter Gammons who compared A-Rod to the Boston Marathon bombers gets a vote?

Its crap like this why baseball is dying{sorry key baseball is dying} I'm sorry i'm just sick of this back scratching BS from these writers. Writers who believe Jacque Jones should get in the HOF over Greg Maddux can kiss my ice cold U.P. A$$. I love baseball i do but i'll be honest i'm losing my love for this sport

What do you call 1,000 members of the BBWAA in the bottom of an ocean? A good Start

If Jack Morris gets in the Hall of Fame its out of pity for Morris...

Guys as you know tomorrow we find out who gets voted into the HOF. I would assume Maddux and Glavine get in but this is the BBWAA we're talking about. Morris is in his LY on the ballot and imo doesn't belong in the HOF. I think he'll get in and it will be out of pity. I looked at Morris's Numbers and here's what i saw

He won 254 games with an ERA of 3.9. But here's my issues

1.He won 15 games 12 times that's true Lost 10 or more games 11 times

2. Only 3 times struck out 200 batters in a season

3 Walked 80 batters in a season 12 times

4. Only 4 times in his career did he have twice as many strikeouts as walks

5. Career WHIP of 1.3

6. Career K per 9 innings of 5.83 to go with 3.27 BB per 9 innings

7. Gave up 100 Earned runs in a season 8 times gave up 100 runs in a season in all but 5 seasons

8. 12 seasons of 10 or more wild pitches

9. I'm not a WAR fan but according to fangraphs Morris never had a WAR of 6 as a matter of fact he only had 1 season where his WAR was over 5

Which gets me to this point i watched Keith Olbermann's rant about how the baseball HOF is a banana republic that needs to be shut down and moved somewhere else. I won't go that far but i will say that Cooperstown's HOF should change their name to the Hall of Medicore because thats what it has become

Morris said something a while back that pissed me off when he said"If i had known ERA was important i would've tri... [More]

Apparently the "Paterno People"chased Bill O Brien out of Penn State...

I sh*T you not. A lot has started to trickle out from different camps about O Brien leaving for the Houston Texans job. Apparently according to David Jones of Pennlive.com O Brien was tired of the Paterno People as well as Penn State fans. What i'm about to post is a conversation that O Brien and Jones had a month ago. O Brien uses a lot of colorful language in this exchange

"In about a month they'll be fu*King looking for a new coach. You can print this you can print that i don't really give a sh*T what the Paterno people think about what i do with this program. I've done everything i can to show respect to Coach Paterno everything in my power so i could really care less what the Paterno faction of people or whatever you call them think about what i do with this program. I'm tired of it"

"For any Paterno person to have any objection about what i'm doing it makes me want to put my fist through this windshield right now"

"I'm trying to field the most competitive football team i can with near death penalty fu*King sanctions. Every time i say something like that and somebody prints it its skewed as an excuse and i'm not an excuse maker. I'm trying to do the best i can for the kids in that program. All i care about are the kids in that program as long as i'm the head coach here"

I would hope that a majority of Penn State fans would wish O Brien well. I think he obviously left the program better than when he got there. And even though i wasn't or... [More]

I think its time person Vitale hangs it up because his shtick is getting old...

Guys back when Michigan played Duke as you have heard me say before i will call that game and listen back to it to see if i'm getting better as thats 1 way you can get better as a play by play announcer. I plug my headphones in to my tv so i can hear the whistle for fouls. And Jabari parker made a great play and all i hear is "JABARI PARKER!!!! JABARI PARKER!!!!!!! on and on and on. I had a pencil and i stabbed my eye with it. Because if i'm going to be in pain i was goingto do it with myself

There's been little things over the years with him that just rub me the wrong way. I know he's been the voice of college hoops for decades and maybe he's the face of college hoops. But there comes a point when its time and its time for Dick Vitale. I can listen to diaper dandy and dipsy doo dunk a roo its ruining the game

I know i'm pooping in a lot of people's soup by saying it but i guess i have to be the guy who says it. Its enough. Much like Pauly said to Rocky in the last Rocky movie "Nothing personal Rocko i can't do this no more" Well folks nothing personal but i can't listen to Vitale anymore

Bama fans you do realize Saban wanted you to kiss the rings right?

Obviously guys Saban just signed an extension to stay at Bama. I never thought he'd leave because the only thing Texas could offer him that Bama couldn't is no state tax. We can get into this,that and the next thing as to why this dragged on but here's my take

The last time we saw Bama play we all saw maybe the greatest ending to 1 of the greatest iron bowls ever. Auburn takes the missed field goal back for a td. Beating Bama,winning the SEC West and knocking Bama out in the process. And you heard some Bama people with some negativity and some saying" If he stays he stays if he leaves he leaves"

I think Saban did this for 1,000 reasons. I think 1 is he just wanted most people to realize something. And that is that he brought Alabama back to glory. Bama is 79-14 under Saban. They've won 10+games the last 6 years. 2 SEC titles. 5 BCS bowls and 3 national titles. My question what was Bama before Nick Saban got there? They were mediocre under Mike Shula trying to recapture the glory days of Bear Bryant

Saban has his own statue much like the Bear in Tuscaloosa and he should. There are a few Bama fans who believe "Give 500 HC"s this job and they'd win titles" Remember Alabama came very close to hiring Rich RodriguezI think Saban partly did this to tweak the fans a bit Make them realize that life isn't too bad and the grass isn't greener on the other side

To wrap this up just wants those people to kiss the title rings and that's all. I like Coach S... [More]

I guess i'll be "That Guy" concerning baseball....

Guys i love baseball i do but unlike most of you i see that the sport has many problems/issues. I don't why most of you can't see that but hey i don't live in the land of unicorns. I will present the problem and my solutions. If you don't like them thats fine because most of you don't like logical solutions tho issues that are coming. here are the issues

1. Pace of play

I've sat at home calling games off and on for the last 10 years{Thats how you get better at calling games so don't bother being an a$$} and the pace of play is just getting ridculous. From pitchers taking forever to throw to batters getting in and out of the box. I blame Garciaparra for this because he made it "cool" with the glove velcro thing. We need a 20 second pitch clock in baseball

2. Pitchers should have to wear helmets on the mound

Some Dodgers fan is laughing at this but you won't be laughing when Kershaw takes a liner off his head and dies on the field. Many of you say "that won't happen" and people said the same thing about base coaches and then a 1st base coach in the minors took a liner to the neck and died. I'm looking ahead something MLB doesn't do

3. If a pitcher hits a batter in the head or near the head whether it be on purpose or accident that pitcher should be ejected from the game

I'm looking ahead to the issues of concussions in sports. I feel that a pitcher should be able to control where and how he throws the ball. When Niese hit Heyw... [More]

I'm ranting about Winston,ESPN,FSU fans plus more...

Alright guys Jameis Winston won't be charged in the rape case which isn't a shock to me but while watching the coverage there were a few things which pissed me off and made me lose iq points. I'll get to them right now

1. The notion that Winston is 100% innocent

Whether or not Winston raped that woman we'll never know but the notion that because he wasn't charged he's innocent is a crock. He may not be guilty of rape but he's guilty of being an idiot. Why put yourself in that position by going to a bar? Winston is in this mess because he thought with little Jameis and not big Jameis. My advice to Winston drink a can of Pepsi and keep it in your pants and you shouldn't get in much trouble

2. ESPN missed the boat

With him not being charged ESPN is now talking he's back in the Heisman race etc. Do you understand the gravity of the situation? Winston was accused of rape i don't care about the Heisman. Hell he should win the Heisman but the 1st thing post press conference shouldn't be he's back in the Heisman race

3. My apology to Penn State fans

To thisguyiswise and teaser and the rest i would like to apologize. I thought Happy Valley was the only place that was creepy and only cared about football but apparently Tallahassee is as well. Did you see this jacka$$ for ESPN interviewing FSU fans after the news? I almost snapped. this 1 girl with an iq of beandip said"i'm glad its over so we can focus on a national title" Really ...

The NFL is such a joke by giving up Oakland-Dallas instead of Denver-Dallas...

I don't post in the NFL forum often as i don't bet on the NFL anymore. Hell i don't even like the NFL as much as i used to as the product really just has sucked since the lockout. CBS has the Dallas game this year and the NFL had 2 choices Oakland-Dallas or Denver-Dallas. The NFL decided Oakland-Dallas what a freaking joke

Everyone's favorite blowhard commissioner Roger Goodell made the comment a while back about putting good games on Thanksgiving. So obviously you give us the Raiders. Now i know some of you will say "packers just because Denver and Dallas when they played was 51-48 you can't say that would' happen on Thanksgiving"And yes the game wouldn't be 51-48 but wouldn't you rather watch Peyton Manning and Tony romo get in a 38-34 type of game.Or would you rather watch Matt McGloin crap his pants and the Cowboys win 44-13.

I'll get heat for this but the arrogance of the NFL will be their downfall in the end. From all the rule changes,to eliminating defense from the game the NFL will die a slow death. now it'll be death by a thousand papercuts but it will die off. I think 5-10 years the NFL won't be as popular. hell i watch because its part of my job but i really don't enjoy the NFL anymore

Look i'll wrap this up i just want good games on Thanksgiving thats all. You could've put Oakland-Denver on CBS at 1 pm in October and no one would've batted an eye. Instead the turkey on Thanksgiving will be the Oakland-Dallas game. Thanks NFL

Apparently people are upset Lee Corso dressed like a native american on gameday and i lost iq points

Guys i don't watch gameday much but i saw saturday's because bill murray was the guest picker. And Corso a FSU alum was dressed like a native american which i thought nothing of and Blll Murray slammed him down. Well apparently people are pissed that Corso dressed like an indian and honestly its the stupidest thing i've heard

Now we have this b.s. going on about the Redskins name now this and personally its giving me diabetes. I'm sick and tired of hearing from these people who look for any reason to be offended about anything trying to tell me whats offensive. Did any of you see that Saturday and say wow that was classless? Because i didn't. 87% of people in this country are not offended by these issues and in my country 87% is bigger than 13%

I'm sick and tired of the p.c police trying to make something thats not an issue into an issue. Does anyone believe Lee Corso decided i'm going to wear something a few will consider tasteless to get attention? Give me an F'n break. I hope Snyder keeps the name Redskins, I hope Corso doesn't apologize. I'm sick of this Obama's america p.c. 1 person's feelings may be hurt b.s.

The media really is getting sad so i'll ask you my covers brethren were you offended on Saturday?

I just read the most disgusting article about Minnesota HC Jerry Kill....

Gentlemen as you know Coach Kill suffered a seizure on the sideline last week vs Western Illinois. Its the 4th seizure Kill has had in Minnesota's last 22 games. Coach Kill suffers from epilepsy. The column i read was written by Jim Souhan of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Now i'm not posting the entire column but the parts i'm gonna post nearly made me puke as this jacka$$ must have something against Kill

"Kill suffers a seizure at TCF Bank Stadium as often as he wins a big 10 game. He's 4 for 16 in both categories. Even those who admire him can't believe he should still coach. Either the stress of the Gophers job is damaging his health or his health was damaged to such a degree that he shouldn't have been hired to coach in the big 10 anyway" Now if that doesn't make you sick listen to this next jab by this jerk

"The face of your program can't be someone who may be rushed to the hospital at any moment. No one who buys a ticket to TCF Bank Stadium should be rewarded with the site of seeing a middle aged man writhing on the ground"

I'm not aware of this Souhan jerk but apparently Kill peed in his cornflakes at some point in time. There's been a lot of noise on tv about Coach Kill whether he should quit or be fired etc. His seizure affected me more than the others because Coach Kill sent me a signed photo a few months ago which i display in my home proudly. i've liked Kill going back to his days at NIU

Now before someone says "So packers i... [More]
