    1. Thoughts on New Anthem Rule

      TheTodd’s first argument was more compelling than his last. I’m not sure how anyone can say that Cuba has a state of the art health care system, i’ve seen whole hospitals of doctors not able to treat patients because they don’t have the necessary medicine. It is true that the people can receive “health care” for (almost) free when they need it, but it is NOT world-class, despite the over-abundance of doctors. And it is most certainly not true that people never want for food. The state-run food program does provide everyone the barest level of nourishment, but many are hungry, all the time. I have been there and seen it. Those claims are simply untrue. It is a magical place filled with amazing people, but it is far from a “shining example of the Communist ideal.” Kaep, while he has taken on a subject of great importance with mostly a head above the water (and with a strong measure of grace) MUST know he stepped in it with a tone-deaf act in Miami. It shows his human frailty, and also shows that even the best of intentions can meander off course. I still respect him for taking a stand and shining light on a social issue that needed to be lifted up, and that respect also means that I can acknowledge that he did a dumb thing. That said: this NFL rule is bullshit, and forced patriotism is not true patriotism. Legalities of the issue aside, I am disgusted that an entity with a special tax consideration has legislated an activity that has absolutely nothing to do with the activity for which it’s employees are being compensated. The rule is pandering in its worst form, and regressive beyond measure.

      Man, Cal needed that one for a confidence boost. Congrats to BGSU and WMU! We know Jieret is super good, and it looks like Kirby could be a good coach too...

      Thank you for your application to the Conference of Champions! I'll be in touch via PM. Since Arizona is a relatively recent opening, the position needs to stay open one more day before approving an application.

      Good lookin' squad! Keep coaching them up!
    6. Do you ever make your players switch sides?

      I've switched my CBs at Oregon this year to maximize matchups on occasion. I've got one tall zone CB, and one short man CB. I'm not sure it's been worth the chemistry hit, honestly.
    7. Bingo Bongo, Minneapolis Star Tribune Coach Smackems, without revealing too much about your strategy, describe a bit of the process of recruiting in a state that was not littered with talent. What were your objectives in finding talent in other states?

      Holy shit this dude has been here since JULY!! Is there a more perfect match between non-entity school and non-entity user?
    9. Great Class, Jumbo! USC is in a perfect position to regain former glory. You've got to beat some folks up north (including Westwood) first, but this is the class to get it done. A good day for SC and a great day for the PAC 12!!
    10. There are a couple: Mark Bassett (GBP DT); OJ Carano (NYG). But two stick out: my first big recruits: Patrick Murphy (PIT) and Jamir Blackburn (CIN). Jamir has been much better this season than I expected. And Pat M. is just killing it in Pittsburgh.

      Spain's actual 23-man roster: Goalkeepers: David de Gea (Manchester United), Kepa Arrizabalaga (Athletic Bilbao), Pepe Reina (SSC Napoli). Defenders: Dani Carvajal (Real Madrid), Álvaro Odriozola (Real Sociedad), Gerard Piqué (Barcelona), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Nacho (Real Madrid), César Azpilicueta (Chelsea), Jordi Alba (Barcelona), Nacho Monreal (Arsenal). Midfielders: Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Saúl Ñíguez (Atlético Madrid), Andrés Iniesta (Barcelona), Thiago Alcántara (Bayern München), Koke (Atlético Madrid), Isco (Real Madrid). Forwards: David Silva (Manchester City), Marco Asensio (Real Madrid), Lucas Vázquez (Real Madrid), Diego Costa (Atlético Madrid), Rodrigo (Valencia), Iago Aspas (Celta Vigo). My Spain XI: Iniesta/Thiago/Silva a ridiculously creative attacking midfield, Asensio will likely be a super sub, but why not start him up top with Costa as Target Man? de Gea Azpilicueta/Alba - Pique - Ramos - Carvajal Busquets Iniesta - Alcántara Silva Asensio - Costa
    12. Signing Days: Alex Gruber, QB (Oregon)

      Alex Gruber and parents at his signing ceremony, week 5 of the CFBHC season Alex Gruber represents a number of firsts for the University of Oregon and for Head Coach Bingo415. Gruber is the first 5.0 potential quarterback from the state of Oregon to sign with the Ducks (Joaquin Younger, Oceanside, CA), and the first 5.0 potential quarterback of Coach Bingo's tenure at both Oregon and Minnesota. Gruber was among a handful of stellar in-state recruits this cycle, along with TE Jack Booth (3.5/5.0, Dallas, OR); CB Chance Muse (1.0/4.5, Dallas, OR); OG Grant Vershon (1.5/4.5, Newberg, OR); and Gruber's cousin, Ryder Gruber (1.0/4.0, Salem, OR). This wealth of in-state talent tails off considerably in the 2022 cycle, so the Ducks are feeling especially lucky securing the LOI of Gruber and his classmates. Some of the members of Oregon's 2021 recruiting class, ranked #24 Alex Gruber is an intriguing prospect who brings good size, decent mobility, and a strong arm to the table. He is a bit raw in his reading of defenses, but a year on the bench with a redshirt, learning behind Senior QB Jason Baum, will be dramatically important for his development. While there are a few other talented signal-callers in the wings (notably 2020 4* recruit Savion Knox), it is likely that Gruber will assume the starters role in 2023. The Pistol formation has been a staple at Oregon since Coach Bingo's arrival and that looks to continue with this devilishly talented quarterback taking snaps. The coaching staff is looking for Gruber to come in with an attitude of hard work, soaking up the football life around him, and grab the 2023 starting quarterback position with both hands. Gruber throwing at a Duck QB camp in the summer Alex Gruber -- Welcome to the University of Oregon and thank you for choosing to be among the Men of Oregon.

      Knockout round? Certainly would get through a group...
    14. Thanks, Champ. Completely untrue. While the Chargers have been playing better of late, we have a division to go win. No letting up, not even to prevent the Chargers from having ANOTHER #1 pick. Maybe if they'd like to trade us that #1, we'll talk.
    15. Thanks for the question, Burt. Good to see you out of the hospital...that was a nasty suckerpunch from Pumph. League should have looked into that... Anyway, I've learned quite a bit about how Jieret has utilized Jennings and the running backs in the Spread base offense. He really excelled at letting them 'do their thing' and it was showing results. I bring a different sensibility to offensive and defensive efficiency. My teams have always been near the top of the League in OYPP and DYPP, two ball-control stats that I value. One thing I'd like to continue from what Jieret had begun is getting the Defensive Ends onto the stat sheets. I had typically funneled all activity to the middle of the defense: it's why Michael Carroll and Cameron Jonah were Pro Bowlers last year, but Jieret was teaching me to employ some wider sets on defense and our Ends have taken off this year. Charles Johnson is on pace to set a new PR in sacks, and Deyonte Davis is just a joy to be around. He's such a positive new addition to the locker room.
