I think Illinois will have a chance against Minnesota, Michigan State, Iowa and Northwestern. Obviously, the Michigan game is a difficult one, but after that, the opponents aren’t as good. Michigan State is having an historically bad season and may come to town with little to play for.
Right now, big time college athletics are exactly where the NCAA has wanted it to be. As much as it would like to pass off college football as a friendly competition among students studying really hard to get degrees that will help them down the road, we all know better. And they should, too..
3. If I were setting the over/under on undrafted free agents making the Bills’ roster this season, the number I’d use is 1.5. Striker and Gronkowski would seem to have the best shot at that right now. The team reduced George’s base salary to $477,000 for this year. It then guaranteed, in what amounts to a signing bonus, the balance. Since he is a vested veteran who was on the roster for the opening game, George will pocket not only the bonus but the entire base salary as well..
4. Have you seen George Strait’s 1992 film Pure Country? It is awful. Awful, awful, just perfectly awful. I want to thank the Lord for the first downs that he has been allowing me to achieve. The touchdown is going to come in his timing, but today was a first down. I was finally able to make it to practice with my teammates.
I think it’s important to say here that I don’t expect the teams at the bottom of the South to be nearly as bad as the teams at the bottom of the North. Cal and Oregon State strike me as being in truly poor shape and unlikely to play in all that many seriously competitive games. The Sun Devils are a pretty well coached team with a lot to like on offense before you even consider that they’re bringing in quarterback Blake Barnett as a transfer from Alabama.
Kim Pegula: The purpose of One Buffalo was to bring together the fans, the community, the people to celebrate all things Buffalo. When we did our first Bills game as owners, that was an opportunity to start off our campaign. We gotten such a great response from it.
“I thought we came out of the gates pretty good,” head coach Matt O’Dette said. “Then we take a stick penalty on the back check and then another stick penalty to go down five on three. When you have a minute long five on three against that team, it’s a tough way to start the game.”.
After further review, it was ruled he did not complete the catch because as he lunged into the end zone the ball was still spinning as it hit the ground. If he was a running back, it would not have mattered because he had crossed the plane. Even though it looked like James made a football move after he caught the ball and thus would only need to cross the plane, it was ruled he was still in the act of securing the ball and it was an incomplete pass..
