Officially Speaking: B1G Turkeys

Coach Meyer had a reason to be frustrated last Saturday- the Buckeye defense had served up a heap of stuffing to Indiana’s run game when the flag fluttered to the ground… Patrick: After watching several replays, this is straight a blown call. Horse collar rules states “inside the shoulder pads” and clearly Washington has a fist full of jersey. The officials conferenced for...

"Are you having fun?" boomed the voice. "Yes!" was the response, although not as loud as the voice thought for a group of 90 or so kids. Those kids had been out running around for a few hours on a warm Saturday morning, so the voice gave them another opportunity. "Are you having fun?" "Yes!!!" came the response, much more enthusiastically this time. "That's good," said the voice...
