I'm thinking of doing this in the backyard especially since kids and dogs track in so much dead grass, dirt, mud etc during the winter. Has anyone done it? What product did you use? Are you satisfied?...

You can get a ticket to the title game for as cheap as $275 on StubHub. That is below face value.
As a point of reference, the worst seats in the house for last year's title game were going for $1,000. Same for the LSU-Bama game the year before....

Ouch, that's not too impressive since speed was supposed to be his forte.
Maybe he will slide to the middle of round 1.
A lot of times have been slower than expected - Ogletree ran a 4.7 at the combine, and Minter and Te'o ran 4.8's.

| More Sports Board|| Is Manziel really deserving of the Heisman? - bayoujd on 11/25/12 at 7:41 pm|
I don't get it. At all. A&M played 3 ranked teams - Alabama, LSU, and Florida.
In those 3 games:
Record: 1-2 (not good for a Heisman frontrunner)
That's very poor overall in the biggest moments.
His team finished 3rd in his division, and 6th in the conference.

I think there are a few programs that may be on the rise, due in part to their coach, but also due to the chronic cheaters getting caught.
