That is a bit out there. For that to be the case that means they give LSU ~22% chance to win each game....

We always play them the same week because it is the first week of the season they can play. The Ivy league doesn't allow baseball teams to play the first two weeks....

Here is my biased stance on why Graham won't get WR money if tagged.
The position you play has noothing to do with where you line up on the field. In 2009 (I think) most of Zach Strief's playing time came in when he was an extra tackle reporting as an eligible receiver, so most of his playing t...

If there really is something wrong Generation Y (which I personally would argue there is nothing different from any other generation) it is entirely the new age parenting BS popularized by Gen X.
Also people have been complaining about how spoiled the following generation is since the industrial...

The cameras are owned by the network broadcasting the game. It would be a pain for each week a new crew setting up their end zone cameras and taking them down.
Also more mobile cameras make more sense for them financially. Cost less money and they don't really give a damn if every call is correc...

If you assume there are 300 people on each team that is still over 8lbs a person. I would bet that is just what they were provided no really what was consumed....

The reasonit is a big deal for the NFL is that the NFL may have known the dangers of concussions and hidden them from the players. The NCAA doesn't have the same cloud hanging over it so there is no legal grounds to sue....
