re: Arizona St vs UTSA | 32-28 | Final | ESPN2 | It didn't happen - TouchedTheAxeIn82
[quote]Why the hell is ASU playing a road game against UTSA?[/quote] What's gonna be weird is seeing Utah play at San Jose State's rinky dink stadium tomorrow night. I read an article that said these teams don't want to spend the money on one-and-done arrangements, so they agree to some weird hone-...

re: Arizona St vs UTSA | 32-28 | Final | ESPN2 | It didn't happen - TouchedTheAxeIn82
The Pac is really down this year. Maybe Cal [i]can[/i] win a couple of conference games, even without a defense. Next week is gonna be a big shootout. ...

re: Netflix cancelled Bloodline - TouchedTheAxeIn82
I just found out about this, and it sounds good to me. The writers have a whole season to wrap it up and give it a satisfying end. At the end of the first season I thought the story arc should wrap up in a total of two seasons anyway. I thought the end of the 2nd season kinda jumped the shark, so ...

re: NASCAR, Dale Earnhardt's death, article from 2000: Could Dale have been spared? - TouchedTheAxeIn82
[quote]Which ones? Not F1 or Indy according to a post above.[/quote] The HANS device had been in development for years and used by some drivers, but I don't think it was mandated by any series or used widely until after Earnhardt's death. There was resistance from drivers everywhere. ...

re: NASCAR, Dale Earnhardt's death, article from 2000: Could Dale have been spared? - TouchedTheAxeIn82
The answer to the question is no. Earnhardt, and many other drivers from NASCAR, Indycar, and F1 would not voluntarily wear it, so short of mandating it, additional information that may have been withheld wasn't going to convince him to wear the HANS device. Earnhardt's death has saved lives, beca...

re: Recent iconic college football pictures - TouchedTheAxeIn82
I see a lot of pictures of [b]iconic moments[/b], but are there actually any [b]iconic pictures[/b] from the BCS/playoff era? I'm starting to think there aren't, because no one has produced one yet in this thread. I think there are very few iconic photos of college football that even exist. The...

re: What Is Aaron Rodgers Beef With Mack Brown? - TouchedTheAxeIn82
This was the incident that caused the AP to ask the BCS to stop using the AP Poll in the BCS calculation. The problem was that the individual votes in the AP Poll were public, while the individual votes in the Coaches Poll were kept private, and it was the shift in points in the Coaches Poll that w...

re: Steve Sarkisian to join Alabama coaching staff (srs) - TouchedTheAxeIn82
There's a real coaching fraternity. They're obviously doing it so he remains associated with football as he works to get back to getting hired as an OC or HC somewhere. Jeff Tedford was hired as an "offensive consultant" at Udub for the exact same reason. He wants to be a college HC and nothing ...

re: Who's staying up to watch the late games? - TouchedTheAxeIn82
I had to check the schedule, Cal plays ASU in a few weeks, cool. ASU is one of those teams Cal can beat in any year, whether in Berkeley or Tempe. :nana: Last year was a #Pac12AfterDark all-offense, no-defense classic!...

re: CFB fanbase clashes you would most like to witness - TouchedTheAxeIn82
Can't believe no one has mentioned Oregon and their obnoxious fans. So I nominate an Oregon vs Alabama matchup. Most common question Bama fans would ask Oregon fans: "So, how many national championships have you guys won?"...

re: Penn State to Honor Joe Pa Before Temple Game 9/17 - TouchedTheAxeIn82
Can someone clarify, I'm always a little confused by this. Am I supposed to upvote the OP for bringing our attention to this, or downvote the post for the appalling bit of news that it brings? :confused:...

re: Drew Brees comments on Kaepernick controversy - TouchedTheAxeIn82
That was a brilliant comment by Brees. During the whole flag-burning phase a few years back, some lawmakers wanted to make it unconstitutional to burn the flag, but that was a stupid reaction. Freedom of Speech is our most sacred right, and that includes flag burning. My thinking on that was th...
