    Young's Hit

    On the same topic, if anyone saw the Vikings-Falcons game, there's a swing pass to Todd Gurley. As the DB comes up to make a tackle (Gladney I think), Gurley absolutely lowers his helmet, goes crown first. Gladney lowers his head and makes the tackle. It's a PF on MN. You have both players...

    Will McDonald IV – Iowa State

    Yeah, not sure what the idea of Hayward not being that great at ISU came from. In the 25 years of the Big 12 (and I'll assume many years prior in the Big 8), ISU's had exactly one first team all Big 12 defensive end, and that was Hayward. As a reference, in 2005 Berryman was Honorable Mention...

    Kirk Ferentz getting sued for being racist

    Is it just me, or could any dumbass have sifted through social media and written something more informative than the Husch Blackwell report? What a joke. They interviewed plenty of players, and rather than highlight answers including by race, everything was basically, "Two players reported being...

    Kirk Ferentz getting sued for being racist

    Have you ever been around a college football program at all? Coaches being ******** to players is the norm. Everywhere. That's not what this is at all. It's partly sad and partly hilarious that you are trying chalk this up as coaches being ********.

    Breece Hall for Heisman

    OL, especially considering injuries to Downing, Ramos and Hudson has started really doing a good job in the run game. Manning has done a nice job using the TEs here as well, and our WRs are very willing blockers. Sometimes you get a tackler in the hole based on some bad luck and there's not...

    Kirk Ferentz getting sued for being racist

    It’s like trying to make sense of a random word generator.

    ***2020 Vikings Thread***

    If the defense was doomed due to Pierce opting out then Spielman and Zimmer should be fired on the spot. Without Pierce they still had the highest priced defense in the league. Ngokue is absolutely no Hunter but has been a very serviceable guy to say the least so far. Rhodes was terrible last...

    Tamin Lipsey recruiting thread

    I don’t think he’s going to grow. He was basically this height as a FReshman. Also as a FR looked much older than typical. Guy is quick and could be a really good WR/KR. I think I mentioned before, the guys that he’s training with said he is 100% recovered his explosiveness. He doesn’t weigh...

    ***2020 Vikings Thread***

    They were bad with Barr and Cook. Hunter hurts, but the went and got Ngokue. Horrible job with personnel. The defense is a huge problem. Spending that many early picks, the highest cap percent spent on defense in the league and a defensive-minded head coach for this piece of garbage defense?

    ***2020 Vikings Thread***

    Got to dig out of cap hell from the 1995 approach they’ve taken in recent years by paying huge long term deals to several Veteran defensive players and an injured RB. Jefferson and Wilson have been pleasant surprises. Ngokwe and Thielen have been solid. Kendricks and Smith have been fine, but...

    ***2020 Vikings Thread***

    Good luck. People aren’t going to trade out of that spot other than the Bengals and Texans. Everybody else within range of the #1 pick is taking Lawrence.

    ***2020 Vikings Thread***

    Gladney is ******* awful. Just so everyone knows, with all the early draft picks the Vikings have spent on DBs, they are currently playing a guy named Harrison Hand.

    If this real at all you do it and you take anything you can get. The only objective is tanking right now.

    Trade Baylor for Tulane

    It isn’t really that ISU was that team. Once you have a conference with OU and UT, you could make that case about most schools. If you have UT, only TAMU would be a big revenue producer. TTU is probably a minor plus, but Baylor and TCU don’t add anything. As things shift toward new media...

    What’s with our guys’ face masks with like 14 crossbars?

    Trade Baylor for Tulane

    It’s still the same fan base that was largely pissed Briles was fired. They deserve it.

    Trade Baylor for Tulane

    Personally I think TCU was a terrible add. Add a school nobody cares about where everybody is a UT or TAMU fan. Them being good doesn’t help the conference at all. I respect the hell out of their program and generally like them, but from a conference business standpoint they don’t help at all.

    Trade Baylor for Tulane

    CSU is in Ft Collins. Another great town, or at least a decent town in an awesome area. AFA is in Springs. Absolutely no Texas schools. Once you have UT, only TAMU is value-added. The rest add nothing to the numerator while adding to the denominator

    Trade Baylor for Tulane

    Yeah, NO has plenty of nasty, but it is truly a cool, unique city unlike anything else in the US. It’s not my cup of tea exactly but it is damn cool in a unique way. The fact that so many ISU fans think an ugly, boring piece of sprawl like DFW is great makes me question their taste in cities.

    Is Breece Hall the best player in the B12?

    DM was a very willing blitz pickup guy, but Breece is GREAT at it. DM had really good hands, Breece has great hands. The one thing DM had that Breece doesn’t is the ability to flat make a guy miss in a phone booth. Breece is so smooth and is deceiving with the longer strides.
