    Hmmm...it is definitely interesting...would never work in college or the NFL but I like it for pop warner, freshman or JV...get the game over quickly and no tie.

    As a HHS grad and fan, I guess it is a good thing that HHS beat an undefeated team 38-9 and I came away disappointed. The defense played very well but the offense was frankly terrible. A special teams score, a defensive score, an offensive score when a bad snap on a punt gave HHS a very short field accounted for most of HHS' scoring. I left with 4 min to go and it was 31-7 so I don't know how the last scores were made but it was garbage time...

    The rush yards and pass yards allowed by South Warren added together equals 902, not 1,157...pretty big difference.

    I think the umpires 20 years ago were much worse than now. First, I think technology has made the umpires much better calling balls and strikes. They know EVERYONE watching can see on TV whether the ball was really a strike or not so it forces them to really be on their game and they get real feedback on what is a ball and what is a strike. They are certainly not perfect...but I remember back in the day Greg Maddux literally having pitches...

    One thing that may come out of this is that they will allow coaching from the stands going forward. They almost have to let them coach or not let the coach in the stands during a match. From what all the tennis experts were saying after the match, all the coaches are coaching anyway so just make it legal so the chair umpires don't have to be mind readers and guess what is coaching and what is not.

    I agree with all of this. Serena just needed to let it go at some point. She kept going at the umpire to the point of almost leaving him no choice to give her the game penalty. An important point that the announcers did not emphasize enough IMO is that the game penalty came on a game that Osaka was serving. She would have most likely won that game anyway. Now if the game penalty would have come on a game that Serena was serving, that would...

    I think Bell holding out in a way might help the Steelers. The players are obviously not happy with Bell and will go all out to show Bell they can win without him. Any chance that the Steelers would overlook the Browns this week are now gone. They will be a focused football team IMO.

    I work across the street from Fountain Square in the Huntington Bank Building. Crazy day to say the least yesterday. On our floor (14th), we could actually hear the gun shots and then we could see the cops and SWAT teams going around Fountain Square for a while and it was eery. Our building was on lockdown for a few hours...that is just a strange feeling knowing you cannot leave your building...first time I have been in a building on lock...

    One more thing about Tiger. I am not sure a lot of people know how UNBELIEVEABLE this past year has been for Tiger. He literally could barely walk at the Presidents Cup a year ago. To go from where he was to where he is now (from ranked 600+ in the world to 20 something) in one year is just mind blowing. I think he is even shocked by it. He will never be the old Tiger because guys in their 40's don't putt like they did in their 20's and...

    This Ryder Cup is going to be REALLY good. It was going to be great before Tiger was picked but he makes it must watch TV. Every player ranked in the top 10 in the world is in it. I think Tiger and DeChambeau will be paired together in four ball (better ball) as they have forged a really nice relationship. I doubt Tiger plays 36 both of the first two days and may not either day to keep him fresh (this team is so deep, he does not need to...

    This! Dalton is an average starting QB in the NFL (probably in the 13-20 range in rankings). Not great but not terrible. AJ McCarron is no better than a quality back up. The word from Buffalo in camp before the pre-season games started was that he was the 3rd best QB on THAT roster. I really like AJ...seems like a good dude and you have to give him props for getting HIS wife to say yes:). But there is a reason why teams are not giving him...

    I think he did to. I was just saying they were questionable, not wrong. They are the kind of decisions that coaches have to make and are then crushed if they don't work. I imagine Chip Kelly is being roasted in LA today for going for it when he did.

    One of the best lines ever was by Williams in the 1970's, long after he retired. He was asked how he would do against the pitchers of that era. He said he would probably hit about .300. The guy who asked the question was very surprised and asked why he wouldn't do better. Williams said "well I am in my 60's now"... I have always loved Ted Williams. He was one of the greatest hitters ever and he knew it.

    Some VERY questionable moves by the coaches late...Kelly going for it from his own 36 on 4th down with over six minutes left (did not work at all) and Fickell going for it twice in the last two minutes when a chip shot field goal puts them up 5 (did work perfectly). Kelly will not sleep well tonight after his decision blew up on him...
