The poor taste is on me. As The Mqn Who Hires Welles put it, "An attempt at humor, I assume."

You guys sound like idiots regarding the targeting rule, and *intent* has nothing to do with it when the action alone was egregious, like the TLaw hit, I knew that guy was gone from the first replay.

They both should have been ejected so tOSU got off light IMO, other dude threw a punch...wtf?

Itís a good rule, helmet to helmet play is never, ever excusable, so dumb.

You guys, I thought, were better than that, so fucking dumb.

Shaddap.

The Earl Campbell/Jack Tatum collision is one of the best plays I've ever seen. Two men playing football. Hundreds, no, probably thousands of like hits throughout college football history. Never see that great stuff ever again.

Itís me tho, basically you are making the ďget off my lawnĒ/ďIn my day...Ē logical fallacy, they have known this rule since high school..., whatís your beef, professional boxers and UFC fighters make a professional decision to forego the risk, and so has the NFL which applies the rule tighter than NCAA imo, questioning ďtargetingĒ on the TLaw play *is* dumb, and I like you cap but your argument is flawed.

You donít like NCAA or NFL football donít watch it.

Thatís also a choice, but the idea these rules could be reversed is a non-starter...

The professional referee which Iím sure you categorize as an *apologist* was good enough for me and his logic was sound, good enough for me, and correct I thought.

If you think football should be played in a manner in which you can potentially end a players career, thatís sad, and you are detached from reality if you *argue* Tlaw lowered his head, go right ahead but Iíve seen the game 3-4 times including replay, and itís just not factual.

I like you too JB.

But don't tell me if I don't like it, it is their ball and go home.

I think football was a man's sport back in the day. Now it's a don't get hurt rules sport. Cover everyone in nerf and be done with it. Vegetarians are of the same ilk. Screw them I'm eating meat and I also want my football to be mean ass hard hitting.


Potentially? Every play is potentially career ending. Play real football. Eat real meat, fuck Burger King.

That Jack Tatum died young and Earl Campbell can barely walk is probably an argument that those that don't think that stuff was great can make.

Ali shook later on too. But he was the GREATEST.
And it's sad he's no longer with us.

Nobody lives forever. He earned his glory and legend. May he rest in piece.

Close to 40 years ago, a guy I knew destroyed his leg  and his future during an idiotic "football" drill at Ohio State. Google "Curt Curtis Ohio State".

YG,  Did Mr. Curtis ever receive any compensation from OSU?
I don't know.

As a joke it was funny.   If it were true...not so much.

Shocked - shocked! - to see that Chase Young is turning pro.

God's Conference went 7 - 2 in its bowls.

The South Atlantic League may have been even worse than the Pure Prairie Leaguez in some ways. While they won four games, only two of their wins were.against Power 5 teams, and they suffered 3 losses to Gang of.5.teams, including yesterday's beatdown of BC. The take all year was that the SAL was ClemSIN and some turds, and the bowl season bore that out.

PAWCP finished above .500 but that was in part to their playing Illinois and frankly if you cannot beat Illinois you have no business in a bowl game.

Last night's.exhibition of Recapitulation Theory left the Big Whatever below ,500 overall, and in their head to head matchups with God's Conference.

Actually, no, your lack of humor makes your comment the stupidest comment of the new decade. But you are a stupid, stupid man.

I am glad you can admit it.

Twenty five or so years ago, I used to think internet forums held the promise for intelligent discussion of opposing concepts.  I think I badly misjudged how they would be used.
