    Way back in 1989  my wife and I bought our first computer with a modem.  I had to create a user ID to log into the campus main frame.   I used my wifes intitials and mine.  JMSGWS  Then I added the letters GOIU  so the first user name I ever created was JMSGWSGOIU    I would have used that for here as well, but I kept getting error messages when I tried to create my account until I shortened it.  :)

    Wow, Minny up 24-10 with 3:30 left in the 1st half. If this stays, the PSU game won't be a trap game for them but a must win.

    It depends on what you are looking for.  If you want cheap stuff go to Michael's or whatever craft hobby store is in your area.  When my son was in cub scouts this where we got the stuff for the scouts to make their own clocks.

    I bought some nicer stuff from a website called time savers .  It has been a couple of years, but I think they are still in business.

    Depends on what the original diagnosis was.  Briuse?  Strain?   If something like hairline fracture or anything like a separation, I agree.  If it was already torn/cracked and they didn't pick it up via MRI or other testing, it wouldn't have mattered and would have bothered him until he suffered whatever injury he did or had surgery.

    Crazy how legal trouble gets buried when you’re winning but quickly rises to the surface when the winning slows down.

    I put the chances of Tom Allen going to FSU at less than 0 percent. For those of you worried about losing Allen (I'm not in that group), unless FSU hires a Clemson coordinator (both have been mentioned high on candidate lists), I might keep an eye on the school that loses its coach to the 'Noles. (For instance, if FSU hires Mark Stoops, I wouldn't be surprised if Kentucky came calling on Allen.)

    As for me, I'm remaining Switzerland on Allen (neutral). I'm neither sold on him nor did I want him fired. My main beef with the hiring of Allen remains that we didn't do a search after Wilson was forced out. Regardless, I'm not opposed to giving Allen an extension and a raise -- as long as we don't go overboard as we did with Crean. As of now, I believe Allen's contract expires in three seasons. Unless a coach is failing miserably (clearly Allen is not), I think he needs to always have at least four years on his deal -- to help with recruiting. So I'm all for extending him by a year or two and giving him a nice raise. 

    *** BTW, I thought the hiring of Allen was strange, but it pales in comparison to what Illinois did a few years ago. They canned their head coach (Beckham) for alleged mistreatment of players -- sound familiar? -- early in the season. Then with one game left, they gave the interim coach (Cubit) the full-time gig. But they gave him a two-year contract. Who the hell gives a college coach a two-year contract? And in March, they hired a new AD, who on his very first day, fired Cubit. So he was officially the full-time coach for all of one game. Very bizarre.

    Back when I was in school -- 1987 -- Dave Kramme started twice because the starter (Dave Schnell) had an appendectomy. That was the only time we beat Michigan and OSU in the same season (Schnell started both those games, though). Unfortunately, one of those games in which Schnell was out, we could've won the Big Ten title. But we got poleaxed at Michigan State. It's doubtful Schnell would've made a difference in the outcome -- a 27-3 loss -- but I think it would've been more competitive. I know that's not the same, but we did win eight games that year -- and had to play a couple with our QB2.

    I don't think we should let the QB questions divide us. They are both capable. I prefer Penix, but have no problem with people who prefer Ramsey. Whoever gets us the W is fine with me. I've been following since the '50s, so I'm loving where we are right now.
