    I was quite skeptical also. And there have been some college football players get infected. But it doesn't appear that their danger is even as much as the average college student. I'll tentatively say they seem to have figured out some effective strategies for keeping them relatively safe.

    Meanwhile... the Duckies sharpened up well in the second half. Showed some real promise. Really impressed with how quickly the young, shiny new, O-line has gelled. All the talent & experience they lost this year... and you barely notice it.

    Didn't have time to catch the game, but just watched the Chargers-Jets highlights. Justin Herbert looked sharp. The O-line's pass blocking is still suspect, but the play calls which got it out of his hands QUICK worked ok. Is there anyone else so consistently threading the needle successfully on those tight-window throws? The run-blocking... not so much.

    They are pretty well matched. Both their defenses are equally porous.

    The Beavs are overmatch, on paper. But they're playing their hearts out, while the Ducks seem a bit complacent. The last two Oregon td's show what they can do when they can buckle down. But they're not gonna impress anyone with an effort like this. D-line seems to be the weak link this year.

    There's a few NFL teams I'll always root against... for personal reasons.

    Philly - because of their embrace of Michael Vick shortly after his dog torture for money episode.

    And two others for the way they mishandled... ruined, really... talented young quarterbacks from Oregon.

    Tennessee for the way they mangled the career of Marcus Mariota.

    And Detroit for their massive front office and coaching ineptitude with Joey Harrington.

    I found the Lions hiring of Matt Patricia unsurprising, and his performance equally unsurprising and no better than they deserved. I predict they'll bugger up the next hire as well. I'll even bet you a nickle on it. If they don't... it'll be sheer dumb luck.

    And the Cowboys for their tasteless & incorrect "America's Team" BS.

    A mitigating factor on Philly. It was a Philly player who was instrumental is starting up the Ronald MacDonald House concept.

    Cowboys have never gotten on my radar. I guess I figure - it's Texas. Of course they think they're 'all that'.

    I don't care if Philly hires Desmond Tutu as their next GM, and Obama as the coach... by that one act (Vick) they lost me. Likely irrevocably.

    dallas was admirable from a purely competitive standpoint back in the era of aikman, irvin, smith, moose, tuinei, williams, newton, gesek, gogan, larry allen. . .

    The game wasn’t over yet

    They looked like the team that I thought they’d be this year, which in my mind was good for a 3-5 season. Who knew that level of play would net you 6-2 in the Big10 East this year?

    But hey, Paul Bunyan’s home. If sticking um fans in the eye is my only joy this year, so be it.

    My cousin played college baseball with a high school buddy of Harrington. Spent a summer out west working with him and spent an evening at the bar with Joey and a fourth individual. At one point in the night, he mentions that he’s from Michigan, grew up a Lions fan, and asks him what he thought of that year’s draft picks.

    Without making eye contact, Joey says it’s his off-season and my cousin isn’t the press. Never says a word to him the rest of the evening.

    1.35 seconds to get rid of the ball may not be a recipe for success, but Harrington’s a dick.

    Seems like a harsh judgement to make based upon the hearsay about one incident... wouldn't you say? Is there something else going on that would cause you to jump so salty?

    Hearsay for you. A first person accounting for me.

    I grew up with my cousin. He’s a soft-spoken and overall pleasant person.

    But hey, it’s cool. I know how much it stings your fingers to type acknowledgement that runs counter to your notions.

    Well, you're right that I do have my own impressions. I watched Harrington play for his entire career. So I probably have more data than your cousin.

    But I also him my own personal but brief contact with Joey. I was involved with a local non-profit aimed at reducing youth incarceration/recidivism. Harrington heard about a small event and contacted us, volunteering to attend. He showed up, spoke briefly, made a donation, and hung around to play piano with some of the kids. Later - he promoted our group on his own Harrington Family Foundation website. Based upon MY glancing contact with him... I'd say he's a prince.

    Which of us is correct?

    Perhaps your cousin & I could more accurately say, "FWIW, he acted like a [prince/dick] during my one brief contact with him."

    Oh... and your telling of your cousin's account of an event you were not present for IS second-hand, while mine is first-hand. See the difference.

    So I'll ask again -- was there something else going on that made you jump so salty? Seems extreme. Did you already dislike Harrington for some reason? Were you offended by my characterization of Detroit's handling of him? Not enough fiber in your diet? Something else???

    And even if your judgement of Harrington were correct (there certainly are plenty of NFL stars who are full of themselves)... then what? Are you somehow attempting to argue that Detroit didn't bungle his tenure there?

    Meantime... I'm watching another Oregon qb today. Justin Herbert continues to look solid. But the team around him is not doing well. Too many drops. Too little defense. Stupid clock management. I've heard plenty of calls for firing the head coach, and have mostly put it down to the typical reaction to a losing streak more than careful analysis. But today they are looking more than ever like a team in disarray. Maybe is does come down to coaching...

    Nothing wrong with that. His right and his privilege. As it is his right to form judgements about people based upon scant evidence.

    But if he's going to attempt to present that judgement here as FACT (Joey IS a d**k), he's liable to get challenged. As he did.

    I'd do they same if he made the same statement - based upon scant evidence - about you. Even if your darling wife supported his assertion... though her I wouldn't challenge, just bow to her expertise <G>. I would question whether he knew enough about you to form such a firm, final, and harsh edict. And he probably knows more about you than about Harrington.

    Not being a fan based upon one story legitimately allows him to say, 'I'm not a Pless fan'. It does not allow for him to blithely, and without repercussion, say, 'Pless IS a c***s***er'.

    Tried to watch the Chargers game, to see Justin Herbert operate. Couldn't do it. The Chargers are just so cringe-worthy I switch over to the Seattle game.

    Yikes... another horror show. Nice to see Seattle running away with it, but the Jets are amazingly bad. I never thought Sam Darnold would be a franchise qb... but I'm sure he could do better than this with some talent around him.

    Notre Dame is another of those 'entitlement' programs. Kinda like USC. Seems like they seldom turn out to be as good as the 'should' be - by the level of recruiting, by the coaching salaries, by the media hype, and by the pre-season rankings overestimates.

    It has been such a strange year. My Ducks stumbled and lost a couple. Not surprising... they're in a bit of a transition year - after losing their ace qb, and a ton of their o-line and d-backs. But because of CV19, they back into the title game against a 5-0 USC team... and beat them by a touchdown. YMCTSU...

    Hopefully, next season will be a bit more 'orderly' and normal.

    ND looked ligit in their first game against Clemson and beat them. But Trevor Lawrence makes all the difference. Clemson is tuned up and running on all cylinders this afternoon.
