    Grinds my gears

    Some players on our team and this happens on every team really make me mad. They are so cocky after they do something that wasn't even that good( make a tackle 10 yards down field). They are constantly getting burnt and act really cocky when they don't even do anything. Make the tackle and run back to the huddle.

    I am guessing you are talking about Kennard?


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Sims and James Smith also did this last game after 10-15yd plays.

    Gotta agree. Sims lays out the OSU receiver and stands over him crowing. wtf? Dude, we are losing by 20 points and the guy just got another first down. Shut your yap and play ball.

    Re: Grinds my gears

    Couldn't disagree more with OP...I love seeing emotion on every play. The game is played with emotion and should be celebrated with emotion. As long as the emotion is not show-boating or negative I love it.

    Very well said. I see this on other teams too, and it looks ridiculous.
    I wonder if losing is painful enough to them when they do that?

    Re: Grinds my gears

    I don't mind big stops before the first down marker...but if a big play has happened...and the team got the first down.....why celebrate a big hit or tackle? It is stupid.....makes the guy who tackled him (behind the 1st down marker) look real stupid. Celebrate when you hold 'em.

    +1. Celebrate when you do something beyond what you are supposed to do.
