  1. If he hits Austin when there are no defenders within fifteen yards of him, the game is over.People make too many excuses for him. I thought Austin wasn't at full speed there. A 100% healthy Austin would have caught that.Wilt Chamberlain wouldn't have caught that.Wilt wasn't exactly Mr. Clutch himself
  2. The OJ verdict was pretty obvious from the start, wasn't it? Were you really shocked by the jury verdict?I wasn't shocked when it came time to read the verdict because of the stupid glove. But I thought it was pretty obvious he was guilty and would be found guilty when the trial started. Maybe I'm not cynical enough? I think the evidence gave more than a reasonable doubt
  3. Sweet cherry pick! Thanks. It was intentional so I'm glad you noticed. The point is Ingram's not the bum he's often portrayed as being in this thread. For over a month now he's performed at a low-end RB2 level (or a solid RB3 level as I've been saying). He's clearly been startable for some time now.You do realize that 4 of the 5 guys you mention outperform him given the same criteria, right? Helu, Bushx2, KSmith, Morris, Stewart, etc.Again, my point wasn't to say where Ingram should be ranked. My point was he's been putting up decent production for a good period of time. I'm not saying you should start Ingram over McGahee, Gore or Mendenhall. What I am saying is his production isn't near as bad as some in this forum make it out to be. He's been very viable as a RB3 for nearly two months now.No, you literally said that he is ahead of McGahee, Mendenhall, Benson, Greene and Blount, when he actually only outscores Blount under the same criteria. He has probably had the easiest schedule in the games you picked. Three of the four worst and 4 of the eight worst FP/G defenses and he still manages pedestrian numbers.

  5. And Payton might be right. But I would love to ask him why they traded up and drafted a RB in the first round. They already had multiple proven RBs on the roster. If you are going to draft one that early then make him the feature back. Hell, they could have waited until the third round and gotten demarco murray, who to this point looks like a much better player than ingram. Just seems like a waste to me.Anyone think Ingram might become a better back BECAUSE he was not given the lions shares of the carries?I think the Saints are definitely better for it. With the new CBA this is the way the new NFL is headed.
  6. You should also add that if it happens at your school, that the alumni and the institution are the REAL victims.
  7. Same round as David Terrell, Freddie Mitchell, Charles Rogers & J.J. Stokes Links?You know how to read a game stat line don't you? Start from there, and then go look at every game log and what you games you have on your DVR. I'm sure your inner excuse maker will blame everything else but the QB. You're the Webzone at it's finest. Those 'elite' WRs as you would have them had a drop in the endzone this week and were responsible for Smith's only pick.Just sayin.
  8. I guess that makes them better QBs than Smith.The 49ers are ranked 29th in passing offense. Only the Colts, Broncos and Jags rank lower. Alex Smith's so-called improvement is a mirage due to the 49ers D allowing the fewest points in the league and also having the best turnover ratio at +13. Smith still ranks in the very bottom tier of starting NFL QBs when it comes to actual skills and overall production.They are 29th in passing yards because they are 31st in passing attempts. They are also 6th in passer rating.
  9. I guess that makes them better QBs than Smith.
  10. He looked great last week against the Giants.
  11. even if it was already owned by both? what is the possible benefit for transferring it from joint ownership to sole ownership by his wife?Suppose that substantially all of the assets are in husband's name (not uncommon for that generation). Suppose husband is worth $8 million. The federal estate tax doesn't kick in until the estate is worth at least $5 million, and the rate is steep. If husband dies, $3 million of his estate gets hit with the tax. If they arrange their assets so that they both own about $4 million, no tax. WALA!Is that French for something?
  12. That little dumpy house of Paterno's is valued at over a half mil? In the middle of nowhere in Pennsylvania? Nice appraiser.Do you have the specs on it? $58K for a house in 69 isn't exactly chump change,
  13. This makes no sense to me and will kill any chance PSU has of recovering from this any time soon.Can we please just stop?(I'm speaking in general terms, CrossEyed, not specifically to you.)Stop what, specifically?C'mon. Now they're talking about bodies?You serious Clark?Do you really think it matters, Eddie?Best exchange in the Vacation movies

  15. I was reading about that case earlier. The folks at The Citadel clearly dropped the ball.But you really aren't suggesting that these two cases are comparable, are you? only the part where a high ranking official at a college looked the other way when presented with child molestation charges.. imagine if the Citidel president acted when he fisrt heard about it.. how many molestations could have been prevented??? I guess the name Citidel isn't sexy enough to get the same attention.. Dude...Citadel president looked the other way in the face of evidence, no?I expect you will be continue to be an apologist for said organizations, PSU or not.
  16. Define it how you want but PENN STATE will be the entity with the decommits and transfer approvals. PENN STATE will see a major drop from its donors as a direct consequence of the events. PENN STATE will lose hundreds of millions of dollars settling the civil suits. But we'll make sure not to implicate PENN STATE as to not offend you. The fact that people have the nerve to complain about such trivial things in the wake of this is appalling.
  17. Right now he doesn't seem like the type of guy to undertake such a noble endeavor.
  18. Thank you Honus. To be honest, our family and Joe's has been close for more years than I can remember. I haven't been able to organize my thoughts as well as this article seems to do. I know that he acted poorly and that his inaction certainly caused pain to others. I really get it, and I am sure that he does to, but I believe that you can have love for a person and also condemn that person's actions. Some of the loud and constant piling on by some posters in this thread is nothing more than ignorance. Rumors, estimates of numbers, and sentencing of individuals without the patience to allow justice to run its course is a low point in the FFA. Not as low as Sandusky's actions or those who remained silent in this case. I have lost faith in an honest discussion ever taking place around here. With that thought and worsening health conditions I believe that it is time for me to part ways with this place. I am truely sorry to anyone that I have annoyed over the years.You expect honest calm conversation in the aftermath of what we have witnessed? With the depth of how emotionally horrifying and scarring these allegations are? With a situation so volatile that they justified have a guy who was one of the most popular and respected sports figures in the nation for the past four decades to be fired via a cold-blooded phone call, you expect rationality?As someone else stated earlier ITT
  19. If you're going to pledge property you give either the clerk of the court (if they can or will accept it) or the bail bondsmen a deed of trust.I meant that response for another post....obviously you know how bail works
  20. How did he get out?He probably put up the deed to his house.That's not "exactly zero."It's also not "paid".Since when? If what you say is true, he paid his bail by transferring his deed.Do you know how bail works?
  21. I have grown up with a couple of kids that were in this type of situation and that sums it up perfectly. I hope they burn in hell. To take advantage of a confused kid should be punishable by death. Life with no parole is better imo
  22. I agree! But I'd rather be pissed at the guy who witnessed this horror first hand and didnt try to stop it. Paterno is getting 90% of the anger right now, and he shouldn't be even in the top 5.By your own argument, McQueary did what he was legally obligated to do. How do you hold him to a higher standard than Paterno?
