Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

So, if I'm understanding correctly, Riverman believes that the Heisman trophy should be awarded every May to the guy picked first in the draft?

In fairness, he has accepted his status as 'casualfan.jpg' before. Every sports forum needs clueless loud mouths.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

i have no interest in college fb, but the 'once in a generation' hype that Luck is generating does imply that he's the best player at the college level at the moment.

seems strange to me that the heisman trophy would go to someone else unless the hype is all bs

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

you follow nfl, though, right? look at the list of heisman winners of the past and see how many names you even recognize, if you are an nfl follower but not cfb follower

this seems like the kind of thing that is a great example of the difference between football (soccer) and american sports, especially football, but all of the rest as well

certain things just don't "translate" well when you jump up in competition. from high school to college, and then again from college to pros. it's just a different game.

all that being said, i think RGIII will be great in the NFL. what i've said applies more in generalities

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

I always used to think that the winner of that award was going to be a star in the NFL but yeah when I looked at the list of past winners a few years ago I realised it wasn't the case.

I just can't take college sports seriously tho

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

And yes, the award is ******ed. The best player is not always a QB or RB or once in a generation a DB who also returns punts. GMAFB.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

all of the last 15 winners cept Troy Smith & Jason White (and Griffin)

slightly OT: why would any promising (offensive side) football player with NFL aspirations go to a school which does not run an nfl-style offense

edit: thought eric couch was tim couch at first glance lol, never heard of him either

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

Next you'll be saying Tebow shouldn't have won because he was projected as a fringe 1st rounder. Has a lot to do with team success and your position. Who cares.

Luck won the Maxwell and Walter Camp so he wouldn't leave NY sad.

Everyone is arguing solely because its me. No linebacker or lineman is ever the best player? C'mon man.

Riverman,
The same bias exists in NFL mvp voting.

and pitchers dont win baseball mvps...oh wait. He does kinda have a point and I remember knowing that Orlando Pace was the best player in cfb by farrrrrrrrr when I was like 9 years old.

The last 2 Heisman's were both completely fine, expected, and deserved though. Even Tebow, Leinart, and Bush earned theirs which is tough to say as someone who grew up rooting for Notre Dame and UGA.

Luck would have been ridiculous, Griffin had better numbers literally across the board

I have no idea who Riverman thinks should have won the Heisman

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

Everyone, Mebenhoe banned G10 which means he has the power to unban him. He has stated that he's ok with G10 posting under Matthew Stafford as long as he stays strictly behaved. This is similar to what he did with TuT prior to the Bitchface account.

Pls stop reporting the posts - we know its him.

But if Needle gets mad enough to ban him, that's different, right?

my op was not a reaction to this year's heisman, which was fine imo

i happened to wiki heisman trophy and was in disbelief

i maintain that if that thread had been started by someone else with a reasoned argument, as opposed to drunk me with no argument, everyone would be jacknodding

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

I think the real problem is that you started the thread immediately after the Heisman was awarded to someone we all agreed was a good choice
