...a bill that would make coaches personally liable for the university's legal fees and other damages if the NCAA finds a major violation.
A) terrible idea and 2) congratulations, you just killed college football in Oregon. (well, to be honest, it's not like college football will last all that much longer if the only good teams are in a single conference)

Steve Logan is a blues fan, the former head football coach for East Carolina University, quarterback coach for BC when Matt Ryan was QB there and some sort of coach for the TB Bucs and he's also the best damn radio in the biz. He's on 99.9 the Fan in Raleigh right now, talking about the draft. Listen to him online here: espntriangle.com/ and click on the Listen Live box for 99.9 on the left side of the page. Seriously, if you are a football fan, listen to this guy.

Re: Darcy Tucker and his headshot on Sami Kapanen: That played showed you just how tough Kapanen was and it embodied the word "sisu." Just about everyone else would've stayed down on the ice until the whistle blew, but not Sami. He stumbled, scratched and clawed is way back to the bench to keep the play alive which led to Roenick potting the game winner.

I'm just basically saying that Flacco played an A game; Jones played A+.
Unfortunately, the only way a QB is not going to win the Super Bowl MVP is if they play a C game. I mean, shit, look at Eli's first Super Bowl. How can you make a case, with a straight face, that he deserved that award when the Giants won because the d-line kept Brady on his ass all game long?
posted by NoMich at 02:05 PM on February 04
Didn't Flacco have to chuck that about 60 yards though?

Just a thought - if the Patriots had won would everyone on the list be bashing Tom Brady for having children with multiple partners, some outside of marriage? What about questioning his on or off field conduct?
As far as I know, Tom Brady has never taken action to impede the investigation of two murders that denied justice for the grieving families.

I don't, Mr B. Remember that this is also going to be Ray Lewis' final game. I'm sure all of the stories granting sainthood upon him will eat into some of the sibling rivalry stories. Remember the "Jerome Bettis is from Detroit" Super Bowl from a few years back? I'm taking the under.
