  1. Random Game Talk

    I just finished reading the new novel Mass Effect Andromeda: Annihilation, which details problems with the Quarian ark (also has Volus, Drell, Hanar and Batarians on it) getting to the Andromeda galaxy, but it stops short of them actually reaching Andromeda and linking up with the rest. It was a good read, but it's really a shame if that's all she wrote for the Mass Effect games/universe.
  2. Norman: Feels like our true fans are on the road

    These guys were in middle and high school playing football when Dan Snyder was treating the Redskins as his own personal fantasy team last decade. Every Redskins season ticket holder who has walked away from season tickets because of the owner is 100% justified in my opinion.
  3. Tannehil as a qb to challenge smith next year

    Nope, nope, nope. If we don't draft a QB in the early rounds in the upcoming draft, we will certainly do so in 2020. While the current NFL climate is very favorable for rookies to come in and do well, a year or two behind a veteran QB can't hurt, it can only help. I'm a big Will Grier fan personally, and think two years behind Smith would be fantastic.
  4. Coaches on the hot seat

    Yep, effective at the end of the season-
  5. Coaches on the hot seat

    How in the world does someone get a $10 million buyout off Rutgers? They've been abysmal since the mid 80's, except for the Schiano/Flood era
  6. Colorado fires Mike MacIntyre

    Yeah, I definitely agree on finding someone markedly better. This isn't the job a big program coordinator takes in hopes of moving up to a bigger program in a couple years. However, six years and only one bowl game probably spoke volumes to them, and they stalled out after a very good start to the season too. It's all about the bowl games and the money those bring in, and to not move the needle on that end was the end of it.
  7. Third Playoff Committee Rankings

    Top 10 unchanged, do you agree or disagree? UCF got movement on a spot, as did Syracuse, and there were a few other big climbers near the bottom. Really surprised to see Kentucky hanging in there at 17 though.

  9. The Official Recruiting Thread

    John Emery, the top running back and 14th overall prospect from the 2019 recruiting class has elected to stay home and attend LSU after decommitting from Georgia a month ago http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/25269802/john-emery-top-running-back-2019-class-commits-lsu-tigers
  10. Coaches on the hot seat

    With Petrino out at Louisville, who are some of the names on the hot seat right now? Clay Helton has to have the hottest of them all- while I don't think anyone expected USC to compete for the playoffs with a true freshman under center, they certainly want to be better than 5-5. He's also taken away playcalling from OC Tee Martin. Larry Fedora is probably another who has a very hot seat. I've also read in places where Paul Johnson could be pushed into retirement by Georgia Tech. Scottie Montgomery will need a miracle to prevent a third straight 3-9 season at East Carolina, though the school currently does not have an AD so that could save him for another year. As a Navy fan, Coach Ken is not in danger even with a 2-8 record right now, but both coordinators definitely are on the hot seat.
  11. David Beaty out at Kansas

    It's been rumored that Miles is open to hiring an offensive coordinator who will bring the spread offense with them, instead of his pro-style, run heavy attack that he's used for so many years.
  12. Week 11 | Other Games Thread

    He's also said to the press to "come after me, I'm a man, I'm 40" in response to someone writing a "not so nice" story on a player. Huge hypocrite.
  13. Norman: Feels like our true fans are on the road

    Dont forget the Falcons. And the recipe is simple. Scheme to get your RB out of the backfield covered by Mason Foster. Spread the defense out. Then, use crosses over the middle once they are spread out and run up the YAC. Then you can go to town on the Redskins and be able to run the ball in space.
  14. Getting ready for the playoffs

    I'm looking if anyone has any experience with this kind of late-season manuvering. The last time I was in a spot like this, I stood pat and was the runner up two years in a row. Also, who is the most tradable? Obviously the receivers are my biggest asset, but who should I move? A contender just lost Cooper Kupp, and he has JUlio Jones and I can probably get him to take a deal with two WRs. Another team has a huge glut of wide receivers, but I risk trading a long-term strength to improve his RB position (why I mentioned the keeper situation.) .
  15. Geron Christian tears LCL, done for season

    Especially since that's what ended Jarrett's career
