    Do you mean mentally, coming home from his best friend's funeral or physically running a 100+ degree fever from his flu? Or do you mean his hand? Or maybe you just don't know.

    Gymnastics will never gain the respect it deserves because of crap like this.

    This was the most disgusting display of SEC circle jerking I've ever seen.

    HTF can you give a FALL ON BEAM a 9.4? Pathetic.

    Co-Champions?!? Might as well award the title on a game of paper-rock-scissors.

    Boomer-Sooner. They earned it.

    I'm glad we got out last night, they wouldn't have let us through the door tonight. It was SEC or no one.

    I was lucky enough to get on the field for today's and was able to capture some images. I'm too busy right now to crop/edit, but please enjoy these shots from today.

    By your logic, Nebraska made a mistake by expanding their stadium in 2013 for like the 10th time or whatever it was.

    Every fan base is different and every school has unique capacity to demand ratios. ASU is downsizing because their capacity is typically far greater than demand and their stadium is a dump that needs to be renovated regardless. Demand for ASU football tickets has never necessitated a ~75K stadium, but their AD went the field of dreams route back in the '70s, which in a way paid off because the Arizona Cardinals (then Phoenix Cardinals) ended up playing there for 18 years in addition to the stadium hosting the Fiesta Bowl for 35 years, both of which made use of the high capacity that ASU never really needed.

    Utah's situation is nothing like ASU's situation, so it would be foolish to base expansion decisions on what ASU is doing now that their stadium doesn't host NFL or bowl games, just like it would be foolish to expand RES to 100K based on what Alabama is doing.

    It's all about present capacity to demand ratios and realistic projections of future demand. Both point to a modest expansion (~10K seats via SEZ rebuilding) being a prudent long term decision. Adding 19K seats just to one-up BYU would be imprudent, but alienating thousands of fans that can't currently get season tickets because ASU, et al. happen to be downsizing would be just as foolish.

    Kendal Thompson vs Jason Thompson.

    by flopeedo
    2014-04-19 21:51:44

    I just wanted to share this because its been posted on here, Facebook, and other sites. Kendal Thompson did not play today. That was Jason Thompson, a qb transfer from Wyoming. Also, for those that are saying Wilson is not the guy, he can't get us to a bowl, etc...please don't follow that up with Schultz is the guy or manning is the guy, and here is why. First, we saw what Schultz gave us, a good arm and 200 yards on average, a game. Yes he could have some games here and there, where a receiver makes a play but he is not better then Travis. Manning, who knows. Maybe he is the guy, but he has never played a PAC 12 game ever. Stop believing freshman are always the answer because if you do he will have a bad game one time and then it will be Isom is the guy. If we would have cut Brian Johnson after his sub par sophomore season, then we would have never had the sugar bowl. I believe that Wilson is the best qb we have in the program right now. To get to six wins next year it will not be all on the qb. The entire team is going to have to step up, cause turnovers, protect the ball, create blocks, etc...

    U might Try This...

    The bartender asks the guy sitting at the bar, “What’ll you have?” The guy answers, “A scotch, please.”

    The bartender hands him the drink and says, “That’ll be five dollars,” to which the guy replies, “What are you talking about? I don’t owe you anything for this.”

    A lawyer, sitting nearby and overhearing the conversation, then says to the bartender, “You know, he’s got you there. In the original offer, which constitutes a binding contract upon acceptance, there was no stipulation of remuneration.”

    The bartender was not impressed but says to the guy, “Okay, you beat me for a drink. But don’t ever let me catch you in here again.”

    The next day, same guy walks into the bar. Bartender says, “What the heck are you doing in here? I can’t believe you’ve got the audacity to come back!”

    The guy says, “What are you talking about? I’ve never been in this place in my life!” The bartender replies, “I’m very sorry, but this is uncanny. You must have a double.”

    To which the guy replies, “Thank you. Make it a scotch.”

    My two and half cents.

    Once upon a time there was a very good QB. We all had seen him play and work his magic on the field. But one day he felt it was time to take his game to a higher plane, so he declared himself ready for the draft. He was taken number 1, but was on the most retched team the league has seen in many a day. Well you guessed it, he looked awful most of the time, throwing picks and getting blasted in the backfield. All of us that watched this display of totally crap football booed and booed the franchise, for we new he was not the fault of this debacle. Then the team got new players and draft pics and year by year they got better, was it the QB getting better or was it just that they had the other pieces to play with now. Yes the QB was the same, but now he had others that could play at the same level and the team prospered.

    Fast forward to another time another place.

    Once upon a time there was a QB, is he a good QB, well I don't know for sure just yet. All I know is that he throws lots of pics and gets hit in the backfield a lot.

    The moral of the story is when your O line looks like Swiss cheese and receivers can't get open or hang onto the ball, any QB is going to look like crap.

    Lets just hope with some changes made to the coaching staff, some new talent, and a new start, we can make a better showing this year.

    Dear Chris Hill,

    If you don't want to expand the stadium with spectator seats then I can accept that decision.

    BUT, not adding additional restrooms is completely unacceptable.

    Notice they are going down to the size ours would be with expansion.

    I think that 55 to 65K is about right.

    I never said Utah would win this season. Never even came close to saying that.

    May I just take a moment to say that if we are a six win team this year, we are effin awesome?

    It was merely an observation on a conference member action regarding their stadium

    by FlyfishingUte
    2014-04-19 23:17:13

    I wasn't stating that we should act based on what someone else is doing
    I do think that Chris and the U admin are being deliberately conservative in their approach

    Do we have a waiting list for season tickets of 5000? 10000? I would be surprised if we do

    Does Nebraska have to compete with another decent football school within an hours drive? Is there anything to do in Nebraska besides shuck corn, hunt pheasants, fornicate, drink and go to football games?

    Lighten up Francis it was an observation no more no less

    That whole "it's the O-Line" excuse is getting very tiresome.

    by SeaTacUte
    2014-04-20 09:07:32

    For every o-line breakdown there's also been a whole lot of:

    1) holding on to the ball too long
    2) staring down the receivers
    3) scrambling before needing to
    4) throwing the ball into the dirt
    5) throwing the ball 3 yards over the receivers head
    6) throwing the ball wide
    7) throwing the ball into a defenders hands

    At some point in time, hopefully people are going to realize that maybe - just maybe - the skill set simply isn't there.
