re: Least Favorite Victories - glaucon
[quote]Auburn 2012- They were hot garbage, and we probably would have lost if we didn't get a safety in the first quarter. [/quote] This game was fun to watch. It just wasn't what we thought we were watching at the time. [quote]Tennessee 2010- For obvious reasons [/quote] If in the stadi...

re: LSU's 2017 roster, the youngest team to open against a tough opponent in a decade - glaucon
[quote]LSU's 2017 starters appear to be the youngest team starting for LSU against such a quality opening opponent like BYU[/quote] This team isn't that young. There are not as many starts as you would like but they really are not that young. 2013 was a much younger team. 2010 also seems young...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote]By your own admission the rule already exists. The hit still happened. Why do you think that is?[/quote] Because it isn't enforced consistently by the officials (nor is it review-able by replay) and the only result is a 15 yard penalty. Sure, it could still happen even with my rule, but t...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote] was not defenseless, he was a runner. [/quote] This is not the rule. It was an illegal hit under the rules because it results in people going to the fricking hospital and has long term impact on the health of the players. ...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote]He put his helemt (yes the crown) into Chi's chest. Chi was dropping on his own and fell into the hit, but it mostly still caught him in chest. You dont want to see the crown leading, but thats part of my problem in this thread....everyon is acting like the guy targeted Chi's earhole and he d...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote] That's a noble goal for an emotionally driven fella. In practice, you end up with the same number of dangerous plays and have materially affected the integrity of the game. It's a classic example of a bleeding heart who feels the need to do something without the foresight into evaluating wh...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote]Sorry, but the occasional hit like that IS PART OF THE GAME. Its what made it so great. [/quote] This is the attitude that fundamentally has to change. [quote]I know we have to address CTE, but at what cost?[/quote] A 15 yard penalty and ejection from the game is too big a cost for y...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote]A very reasonable line to draw is the defenseless vs. non-defenseless player. [/quote] No, its not. The game needs to change in order to lower the incidences of tackles like this. The defenseless/non-defenseless player distinction fundamentally doesn't matter. It is about lowering the n...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote] Youre getting caught up in the technicality of a rulebook. Never was about that. I'm arguing that all the people in the beginning of this thread berating him need to calm down. I just simply dont think it was aggregious enough for everyone to flip out[/quote] He led with the crown of his...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote] Ok. Fine. Yep, frick that guy. Hope he never plays another down. He made an awful decision in a split second time and went with his head down into another football players chest. WTF, frick him and his career. Im sitting in my nice lazy-boy judging the hell out of his incapability to follow a...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote]Must be nice to be perfect. I understand the words and their meaning. I also understand that things in this world dont go as planned or follow guidelines. So Im simply choosing not to crucify a guy like everyone else here. I also am apparently an awful human because of this decision.[/quote...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote]You seem unable to see past the unfortunate result (player being injured in a scary way) to realize that a ball carrier with his feet under him heading downfield is always a little at risk of being blown up if he doesn't protect himself. It's been that way forever. It's football.[/quote] W...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote]I honestly cant recall a penalty being called on something like this where it wasnt a QB or defenseless receiver. It was guy running with ball and the defender clearly aimed lower at the shoulder and Dupre fell into slightly. Again, IDEALLY, you dont want to tackle like that, but I dont t...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote] You cant argue with these people. They have been corrupted by the soft SJW emotional society we are stuck in. Sad, but true. [/quote] Or we are just not giant fricking a-holes. Players are literally suffering brain damage and you are like its fine, just the way the game is played. You ...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote]Yea, just wondering why they are losing their shite over smthg that happens every game....[/quote] Because it is time to grow up and stop accepting these kind of hits as "just part of the game." I love college football and I want the game to prosper, so this kind of shite has to end. That ...

re: Malachi Dupre carried off on stretcher - glaucon
[quote]These NFL guys trying to make rosters are going to hit you like a freight train. I don't think Dupre is ready for that type of physical play just yet. Should've stayed one more year.[/quote] What a pos thing to say. No one is designed to take a hit to the head like that. Get over yoursel...
