He wasn't hit in the head, but his head snapped back probably causing a concussion or whatever injury. His head probably bounced off of the turf on his fall. You don't have to be hit in the head to sustain a concussion. Just the brain separating from the cranium can cause major issues.


I just watched it to be sure, and he was hit in the chin with the guy's shoulder. The initial contact was in the chest, but it carries through to his chin. His head doesn't strike the ground.

Why not have a rally after a big win and just have the cheerleaders and school supply the venue for after game partying. I mean they do not recognize the need to blow off steam after such a big win.

This is the University's fault for not providing an alternative to couch burning.



Two things:

Rioting is not couch burning.

Other schools don't provide "alternatives to couch burning" and don't have riots.

I need to find a cause. Let me see ... female genital mutilation, genocide, animal cruelty, human trafficking, homelessness, Appalachian furniture ignition ... bingo! That's where I can really make a difference.

Does burning couches and the rest count as partying?


Didn't you already start this thread?

I felt good about WVU's chances until I heard about the uniform selection. Now, not so sure.

The problem with any kind of playoffs is often times the "best" team isn't the team that wins. You can find multiple examples of this, but you don't have to look any further than last years march madness where you had a 7 seed play an 8 seed for the championship. Or remember that 2007 New England Patriots team that won 18 straight games just to get beat by a NY Giants team that went 10-6 in the regular season? We may just have to accept that, especially when you're dealing with 130ish teams, there's just no way to accurately compare them and the "best" team won't always be the team crowned champ at the end of the year.


I agree with this. What I was trying to say, and didn't say very well, is that the playoff system is about crowning a champion as a result of what they do on the field, not picking the best team. The factors show that the committee will look for objective measures of success, not reputation or success in prior years.

Conference championship is just one factor, along with head-to-head, records against common opponents, strength of schedule and other considerations. I think it is significant, however, if you are trying to crown the best team as champion. The goal isn't to pick "the best" 4 teams. Using objective criteria, rather than conference reputation, the fact that a team is a conference champion shows they may be the best team in the nation. A team that isn't a conference champion might be considered the second best team in the country by reputation, but you can rule them out as potentially the best team in the country using objective criteria. Of course, you need to consider all of the other factors as well. I just wouldn't discount the value of a conference championship.

FWIW I would probably take the 11-1 SEC runner up over the 9-3 Big 10 champ. It would depend on ther SOS and the other factors, but based on what we can generalize about who they play, etc., I can see picking the SEC team.
