Andre Carter and the 3-4 defensive scheme

In a text message to a reporter last week, Andre Carter declined to address speculation that the Redskins might trade him because of their expected switch from a 4-3 base front to a 3-4 hybrid defense.

Carter is coming off a personal-best season in which he ranked seventh in the league with 11 sacks. He finished fourth among NFL linemen in tackles, third in tackles for loss, sixth in forced fumbles and also played the most snaps - by far - among Redskins defensive linemen.

But Carter has been most effective during his career as a hand-down end in 4-3 schemes. He struggled, especially in coverage, as an outside linebacker for one season with the San Francisco 49ers, but will "do whatever the team needs me to do," he wrote in a text. "I just put it all in God's hands."

From what we're hearing, there are many packages in the Redskins' new defense that would not require Carter, or other outside linebackers, to match up individually downfield against tight ends.

During the owners' meetings at Orlando the other day, Coach Mike Shanahan spoke highly of Carter, who is rehabilitating from surgery in January to repair the torn biceps he played with in December.

"Andre will do a great job for us," Shanahan said. "I talked to Andre. He came in before [the] offseason program [began]. He's getting rehabbed over at the Stanford hospital. He'll be in April 5 or April 8, somewhere in that area, with our offseason conditioning program. We're looking forward to him getting started."

Carter has a no-trade clause for the length of his contract, but it is believed he would be willing to waive it for the right situation for him and his family. Carter also is due a $3.2 million option bonus in July, and another of $4.075 million before the 2011 season, according to league sources who have reviewed his contract. He has a base salary of $1.3 million this season.

Many of the Redskins' defensive players, Carter among them, benefited from the presence of Albert Haynesworth. After having only four sacks in the 2008 season, Carter had the best year of his career in Haynesworth's first season with Washington, and I don't think that's a coincidence.

Although Shanahan had nice things to say about Carter, I'm not convinced that Carter will be with the Redskins this season. Obviously, there's still a whole lot to play out with this situation.

Sure...Laugh now....But I am pretty sure atleast 2 of these things will happen.....

If Okung and Bradford go before our pick, then we're getting Spiller.

If we can sign dude who comes in next week, we can then trade CR22.

Carter is def on the trade block now.

-maybe if we trade down (though even then, i doubt it), but 4 is too high for Spiller

-who's giving us the 2 for Rogers?

-ditto (2 or 3) for Carter?

-if it was any other team than the Skins, i would hope they pick up both TO and McNabb. That would be great entertainment. They would have to get Garcia as a backup, though.

Two questions:
1. Who?
2. Do you "develop" a lamb by throwing it to the wolves?

Posted by: closer44 | March 26, 2010 1:36 PM | Report abuse

1. George F'ing Washington, who do you think I am talking about
2. I never said anything about throwing a lamb to wolves. You can start developing by having them watch, learn the game, learn the playbook, learn from a super bowl winning coach.

I just think when you start building something its probably best to have the most important piece in place at the beginning.

1. I have no idea who you're talking about. Clausen? Who are we getting to start developing by replacing Campbell? That was the point of your post, right? I don't think George Washington is available.

2. It seems like you are advocating getting rid of JC and installing someone (I don't know who, see #1) to develop--i thought you meant by playing them from the get go. If you're developing them by having them watch & learn, who's playing QB for the Redskins this year?

I'm scared ****less that the Skins will draft Clausen. I'd rather see them package JC17, AC99, and the 4th overall to St. Louis for the 1st overall and a 4th rounder.

Pro day not kind to LeFevour
March, 25, 2010
MAR 25

Comment Print Email Share
By Steve Muench, Scouts Inc.
Central Michigan QB Dan LeFevour opted to throw only to stationary targets at the NFL combine, a decision that puzzled many scouts, put added emphasis on his pro day workout and began to slow some of the momentum he gained at the Senior Bowl.


LeFevour failed to come through on campus, though. Despite throwing to college teammates in a scripted session, he was out of rhythm and late on several throws and put several balls outside the frame of his receivers.

LeFevour also struggled when throwing the ball deep after spending his college career in a spread offense, but much like Senior Bowl week he did look better throwing the ball underneath on short routes. His footwork also looked a little off, and LeFevour is clearly still getting used to dropping back from under center.

Furthermore, LeFevour offered up the explanation that his timing was off because he and his receivers are not in midseason form, but scouts don't want to hear that. You can't go halfway at the combine and then offer up that kind of explanation when things don't go well at your pro day.

This year's quarterback class is not a deep one, and LeFevour missed a big chance to improve his mid-round stock. He was a productive, athletic quarterback in the spread system, but his struggles with pro-style drops and throws have his stock sliding a bit. In fact, Troy QB Levi Brown has impressed us during film study and could make a push to move ahead of LeFevour in that mid-round group.

Chippewas wideouts look good
Wide receivers Antonio Brown and Bryan Anderson worked out with LeFevour, and things went decidedly better for them. Because LeFevour was late and somewhat inaccurate with passes, Brown and Anderson were able to show their ability to open up and adjust to make catches outside their frame.

Brown ran the 40-yard dash in the high 4.4-second range, improving on his 4.57 from the combine, while Anderson remained in the high 4.5s. Anderson's speed is not great, but he has a big body (6-4¾, 210 pounds) and can make plays without getting great separation from defenders. Brown needed a faster time given his smaller frame (5-10⅛), and his improvement keeps him solidly in the sixth round, while Anderson has done enough to get himself into the late-round discussion.

McNabb and TO have made up. They will be appearing on a new Episode of Pros vs. Joes on SPikeTV......

Portis is (an old) 29 and LJ is 30.....

Shanahan said he has never picked this high before...EVER....

So he never had an opportunity to draft the best person at a certain position. Since Bradford/McCoy/Okung will be gone....Spiller would be the next reasonable choice.......

REading back to back posts on Carter, Marshall and owens.

What jumps out at me is an old management saying -- "10% of your people take up 90% of your time." There are always people that suck up management's time, leving the manager less time to deal with other important things.

What concerns me about Shanahan is that he's doing so many things that I don't know if he has the bandwidth to cover them all.

Larry Johnson, Clinton Portis and Albert Haynesworth are all players that can take a lot of management time (and Shanny is the president+coach, so he has to beinvolved on both levels).

Marshall and owens are obviously guys that can suck mgmt time.

Plus Shanahan wants to go to a 3-4, revamp the OL, the entire offense and perhaps develop a new QB. The demands on Shanahan's time are huge.

On the flip side, Andre Carter is easy to manage because he has a good attitude and approach. But will he be here if he doesn't fit the new scheme?

So here is the theory. The biggest risk to this team is Shanahan's ego. He may believe he can handle a guy like Portis or Marshall or Johnson. The question is, how many of these guys can he handle at once -- especially given all the other responsibilities and changes?

4th, you should give it up. Your insistence that an undersized speedback should be taken number 4 is just silly and its even more silly after considering the Redskin's roster needs.

At 4 with Bradford, Okung and McCoy off the board, the pick is Suh, Berry, or Tradeback.

Taking Spiller in that instance would be like Iron Mike trading his whole draft board for Ricky. F'ing Stupid.

======================
Red, I respect your opinion and your posting. However, if you shared Tim Tebow's philosophical and religious view of the world,which is shared by hundreds of millions of people around this planet, then you would see that Jesus Christ and His words and deeds would be so important, and His commandment so explicit, that you would talk about it constantly. If he does so heavy-handedly, it's only because of his inexperience. The theological predicament would remain the same.

As a quarterback, if he fixes his mechanics, he might make an average NFL quarterback - about like Jason Campbell. Teams have won championships with average quarterbacks, if they have crushing defenses and a killer running attack. However, teams win repeated championships with great quarterbacks. Would we could pick the next Elway or Brady or Manning, Peyton, predictably!

McNabb = 3rd rounder?

McNabb mess only gets messier

Posted by Mike Florio on March 26, 2010 2:22 PM ET
With the Raiders and the Bills believed to be exploring the possibility of trading for Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, there's suddenly a catch.

McNabb told coach Andy Reid on Thursday that McNabb prefers staying in Philly to playing for Oakland or Buffalo, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Of course, McNabb ultimately doesn't have any say in whether he's traded. But it's one thing for the Raiders to trade for defensive end Richard Seymour when Seymour didn't want to be a Raider; it's quite another to make a trade for a reluctant quarterback.

That said, ESPN's Sal Paolantonio points out that the Eagles might have no choice but to move McNabb. Paolantonio reports that league sources believe the Eagles wanted too much for McNabb, that several interested teams have moved on, and that no one currently is willing to give up more than a third-round draft pick.

But, per Paolantonio, the Eagles have concluded that a decision must be made soon. If the situation lingers, it will be impossible for McNabb to return as the starter in 2010.

There is a 0 percent chance the eagles trade Mcnabb to the Redskins. Stop talking about it because it will not happen. He absolutely will not stay in the NFC East and if the Eagles can have it their way he wont stay in the NFC at all.

Cardinal is a color -- I don't think they are named after a sin or a religious official.

The Cornell, Dartmouth and Harvard nicknames are also named after colors (red, green, crimson). Its not very impressive.

1964 – The Eagles trade Christian Adolph "Sonny" Jurgensen III to the Washington Redskins in exchange for quarterback Norm Snead and cornerback Claude Crabb.

One of the most infamous trades in Eagles history still makes the top of the list almost 50 years later. Jurgensen spent seven years with the Eagles, backing up Norm Van Brocklin before taking over the starting spot when Van Brocklin retired in 1961.

In his first few seasons as a starter, Jurgensen passed for an NFL record 3,723 yards and tied an NFL record with 32 touchdowns. Jurgensen was also voted to the Pro Bowl as an Eagle. Jurgensen was then abruptly traded after suffering a multitude of injuries in the 1963 season (sound familiar?) Jurgensen would have several more successful seasons with the Redskins, including a run with new coach Vince Lombardi. Although he spend just a few years as a starter, he was named to the Philadelphia Eagles Ring of Honor in 1987.

First of all this would suggest that you're growing tired of reading anything knocking Tebow -- from me. If you say that you never co-sign his on-the-field play, then what else could you take exception to?

Yeah, you're goddamn right I know where you're coming from. What the fu_k does meeting you have anything to to with that?

And for the record, chief, I said I wasn't debating the Tebow thing -- wasn't getting baited into a debate -- never said I wouldn't post anything about him. So before you post your facts, how about you get them sh*ts straight first?

Every person who's offered something contradictory to what I've been saying about Tebow, for the post part I haven't got into a debate over it.

Except you.

Here's some comments I thought interesting from footballoutsiders.com about Notre Dame last season. Of course those stats geeks aren't regular readers of RI so they don't realize Jimmy Clausen is terrible and not worth the number 4 pick in the draft.

"Ten games were decided by a touchdown or less, and the Irish came up victors in only four of them. Based on our raw offensive efficiency (OE) metric, which calibrates offensive scoring rates by starting field position, Notre Dame outperformed its opponent nine times this season, including in the losses to Michigan, Connecticut, and Stanford. The Wolverines and Huskies each chipped in a kick return touchdown. Irish special teams gave Stanford enviable starting field position throughout the game -- six Stanford drives began on 65-yard fields or shorter. Notre Dame had to overcome field position deficits in four of its six victories this season."

"The defense didn’t measure up to the offense in any way, shape, or form in 2009. But the Notre Dame offense is to blame as well -- it was incapable of killing clock at critical times. Against Stanford and Connecticut in each of the final two games, the Irish had the ball and the lead late in the fourth quarter but surrendered it due to an inability to run the ball and an unwillingness to keep slinging it around the field."

"There were epic red zone failures as well. Notre Dame ranked No. 10 nationally in yards per game, but only No. 40 in points per game. The Irish only converted 56 percent of their red zone trips into touchdowns in 2009, due to vanilla play calling and costly turnovers. Five failed red zone trips against Navy doomed what likely would have been a comfortable victory into a two-point loss. According to athletic director Jack Swarbrick, that game was the tipping point game in the decision to end Weis’ tenure."

Only two other teams -- Georgia and Buffalo -- had a combined seven games in which in which they either outperformed the opponent offensive in a loss (three) or won a game in which they had to overcome a field position deficit (four). And neither the Bulldogs nor the Bulls had a lethal combination like Clausen and Tate at their disposal all season. It wouldn't have taken much to tip a few more games in his favor, and Weis had all the arsenal he needed to keep his job.

I heard he asked before the Wonderlic Test was given that he wanted to discuss the relevance of Pi and some player told him to STFU. Seriously, it’s ok to be smart, but keep it to yourself. The last thing we would want on our team is a guy who is notorious for his IQ, especially since there are a lot of players that would be offended and would rather stay stupid.

a 'Y'. The doctor asks the woman if she can think of anything which might
explain it.

"Well," the woman replies, "it could be my boyfriend. You see, he goes to
Yale and when we have sex he insists on wearing his letter sweater."

The doctor tells the woman to make her boyfriend take off the sweater before
they have sex. Later that same day another woman comes in with a rash on
her chest, this one in the shape of an 'H'.

When questioned, the woman explains that her boyfriend goes to Harvard and

Kinda hard to say...but I'd take a shot at it.

I can see Rogers being dangled for a 5th or 6th. I can see Cooley being dangled for a 3rd or 4th. This was a 4-12 team, albeit under a mediocre coach. There are few players that I would absolutely NOT trade...

They are:

Davis, Orakpo, Thomas, Wilson and Alexander...a few more but I'd have to think

I LOL cause all the 'haters' have these f'd up plans to can the young productive players like JC and CR, just assuming that whoever replaces them is automatically going to be not just better but significantly better, what league are you watching? We already cut 10 or 11 guys. And these are the same fans who don't like vinny and danny, but they want to cut everyone as if better players will magically fill the void.

And then their like, " I'm not a hater"

Carter talks about the 3-4, sorry mr. 11 sacks these dooshy haters have already traded you because you don't fit into the scheme that we haven't switched to yet.

Look at 11,12,86 sooo many haters but then they start coming around and where are the haters now. I for one didn't cry about these guys and expected them to take time to produce because we didn't even have an offensive scheme.

Its fun though, it makes me feel smart to read some of these posts

I'm also tired of him shoving how smart he is down our throats. Everytime he talks or his name is brought up its…I’m a Rhodes Scholar and I'm going to be doctor after football. I heard he asked before the Wonderlic Test was given that he wanted to discuss the relevance of Pi and some player told him to STFU. Seriously, it’s ok to be smart, but keep it to yourself. The last thing we would want on our team is a guy who is notorious for his IQ, especially since there are a lot of players that would be offended and would rather stay stupid.

Read independent reports about the surge in Afghanistan.

Folks on the right howled that it took Obama too long to decide to go after the Taliban.

But if you look at the plan the military is executing, the entire effort is well-thoughtout, organized, and has captured or killed a lot of terrorists.

In other words, HIS war on terror is rolling along quite well, thank you.

Couple the Healthcare victory with the successful surge and work to help folks with their mortgages, and suddenly Obama looks very good as prez.

You got that right. There are several reasons why they wouldn't lie, mostly related to the fact that they're publicly traded companies and can (and will) be sued for disseminating false or misleading information that is pertinent to the value of their stock.

Gee I wonder if any of that Obama spending had anything to do with the biggest recession since the great depression, almost a complete economic meltdown, which started before Bush left office and was fully enabled by his administration. Probably not.

I've been hearing rumors of a $700 fine if I don't purchase healthcare.

If this is true, my heart is broken

I'm 26 and currently unemployed. I lack the means for making monthly payments on healthcare and I haven't been to a doctor since I was 17, so quite personally healthcare is a privilege that I have no use for and would rather not have to pay for it.

Total deficit under George Bush, eight years -- $2.005 trillion

Total deficit under Barack Obama, 2009-10 (two years) -- $3.099 trillion.

So, yeah, in terms of spending more than we can afford I'll take an "inarticulate idiot" over an articulate one.

Bad history. The housing bubble was the work of Weird Al Greenspan and his ridiculously low interest rates who the last time I looked was a Republican. A Republican along with all the other "fiscally responsible" Republican hypocrites who did not call out Bush when he went on a budget-busting bender and ended up sticking the nation with a bar tab that others will have to make good on.

Posted by: ItsaFact | March 26, 2010 9:56 PM

Oh how delightfully short sited of you. Yes Greenspan kept interest rates too low for too long but...

In 1994, the Clinton Administration went directly to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and promoted an initiative called The National Homeownership Strategy, which pushed for looser and more creative lending guidelines from both the public (FHA & Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac) and private sector's lending institutions. They released a document, called "The National Homeownership Strategy: Partners in the American Dream," and here's a telling excerpt:

"For many potential homebuyers, the lack of cash available to accumulate the required downpayment and closing costs is the major impediment to purchasing a home. Other households do not have sufficient available income to to make the monthly payments on mortgages financed at market interest rates for standard loan terms. Financing strategies, fueled by the creativity and resources of the private and public sectors, should address both of these financial barriers to homeownership."

And it worked: from 1994 to 2004, the percentage of U.S. homeowners rose from roughly 64% to roughly 69%. Loose lending guidelines, continued and exacerbated by the Bush Administration and its artificially low interest rates, made money cheap, easy, and available to everyone, which created a buying frenzy, which, of course, drove up real estate prices, creating the real estate bubble. Never mind the fact that many of these borrowers were simply not qualified for homeownership, and subsequently defaulted, leading to an avalanche of foreclosures, which burst that real estate bubble.

Incidentally the National Homeownership Strategy document was posted on HUD's website until 2007, when HUD removed it, presumably out of embarrassment and fear of denouncement.

The U.S. government specifically condoned and encouraged the subprime mortgage industry, despite its current cries of outrage. This is our government, that we created, out of complacency and foolishness. We wanted cheap money, they made it a reality, and now we want someone to blame, so we can sleep at night feeling like innocent victims. Look in the mirror, and look at your politicians."

Diesel44 that was strange to me too. Zorn is definitely unconventional in the way he teaches quarterbacking. What JC and Colt has to this spring is to forget some of the quirkiness of Zorn, and relearn a more traditional manner to the position. It makes the transition that more difficult for JC and Colt. Also, it's going to be interesting to see if Zorn has Flacco playing more compact in the pocket.

First off I'm closer to a Libertarian than a conservative. No I don't think tax cuts contributed to the deficit. Two wars definitley contributed to the deficit as did Bush.Problem is Bush was asfar from a fiscal conservative as Obama is. That's what screwed the country. the country wanted to get as far away from Bush as possible. Thing is Bush was never a true fiscal Republican, he was a spender.
Clinton moved to the middle and that's when he balanced the budget. Personally I think Clinton was a very good president. I tend to side with the guys that are closer to the middle. Most people are closer to the middle. We just don't seem to get those options anymore.

3rd amendment is the least cited amendment in legal cases in history.

Who doesn't have to pay taxes? The only ones right now I know of that didn't pay their taxes are in charge of tax structuring right now and were appointed by Obama. Here's the theory with cutting taxes. You cut business taxes so they have more money. If they have more money they can hire more people. that's more people paying taxes so you end up making more because not only are more people paying taxes, the businesses are more productive, therefor making more m oney, therefor paying more taxes. Everybody wins (in theory) because more people are working, more goods are purchased, business makes more money, more people and money in the taxable pool.

Raising taxes does the opposite. Less money for businesses therefor less people hired. Less money earned to tax, less people buying goods to tax, less businesses producing to meet constricted demand. Less people working...everybody loses.

Notice also what JC focused on during the radio interview.. Learning a "new system"... Sound familiar? He is setting us up his same old "new system" excuses. We are going to hear it over and over from him like we did in Zorn's first year and Saunders first year.

TWISI-just listened to the JC segment, he actually said, "There are things I have to re-teach myself, and I have to forget about everything that I've learned...try to start over, you know?" re: pocket presence and foot work. Unbelievable. Damn, I hope we see good things from him, thinking optimistic.

ok.. above is the whole posting.. But I cherry picked the part that I thought was "pathetic".. that is... we "feel good" that the WHOLE offense is in attendance for practice. I didnt give a ratazz about his grammar.. just how pathetic it is what makes us feel good, now, as fans of a 4-12 team..
Notice also what JC focused on during the radio interview.. Learning a "new system"... Sound familiar? He is setting us up his same old "new system" excuses. We are going to hear it over and over from him like we did in Zorn's first year and Saunders first year.
JC is a fraud. Or, Gibbs, Saunders, and Zorn suddenly became incompetent coaches only when working at Redskins Park.

as per my earlier above post..
JC is greasing the media for his same old "new system" excuses.. He's been milking this for five years, now, while the Flaccos, Ryans, Penningtons, and Sanchez's continue to flourish in their first and second years.

Just another "unfair" situation for poor JC. The OLine was unfair, the Gibbs, Saunders, Zorn, and now Kyle "new systems" have been unfair..yadda yadda... Its coming....

I've been reading through the political discussion and solely based on the posts, "scampbell1975" and "League-Source" provided actual information/statistics.

"Ooglaboogla" "frak" "ItsaFACT" "KingJJ"
have provided no information/statistics, just tv rhetoric.

Though I want him to fail in the beast, I think the Eagles secretly want to keep him because he is their best option at qB. But mebbe they are merely appeasing their fans.

Risa--

oh, to be young and dumb. You understand the point of insurance, right? You pay a little money(by this I mean a fraction of the actual cost of a medical procedure) per year so you don't have to pay the full cost of the care you receive. You're right, you don't need insurance because nothing ever happens to young people. God, now I know what it feels like to be just like one RI's regular arrogant, antagonistic, self-absorbed...aww crap, I used God in post...

I think it's still okay to use the Big G. You should try to avoid "Nazi" or "Hitler" because that violates some internet law, and you automatically lose whatever point you're arguing.

"However, if you shared Tim Tebow's philosophical and religious view of the world,which is shared by hundreds of millions of people around this planet, then you would see that Jesus Christ and His words and deeds would be so important, and His commandment so explicit, that you would talk about it constantly. If he does so heavy-handedly, it's only because of his inexperience. The theological predicament would remain the same."

I'm pretty sure your numbers are inflated. Tebow represents a peculiarly American form of Christian evangelism. It's a very Bible-centric, even literalist minority that can be quite confrontive about certain issues and has always made the more secular parts of society a little uncomfortable. Tebow is just the latest and most highly publicized example.

When you put Bible verses on your eye-black, you're deliberately inviting discussion. You're not doing it to be ignored.

Anyway, Tebow's problems as a QB are still on the front burner. He just doesn't have a really good arm. He's not fast enough to play another skill position. He's going to live or die professionally as a QB, and he's still a good two seasons away from NFL ready.

These are the current OTs on the Redskins team.

74 Heyer, Stephon OT 6-6 330
68 Oldenburg, Clint OT 6-5 310
73 Robinson, William OT 6-6 297
71 Williams, Mike G/T 6-6 337

YIKES!!!

"Why is it that Christians are the only religious group that it is acceptable to make fun of. If Tebow was a Muslim constantly referring to Allah, or a Hindu always bringing up Vishnu, I doubt he'd be receiving the same treatment."

Yeah, those Muslims get all the breaks. That's why they're so happy all the time.

So, what do you make of this?

1. Good thing we don't start the season tomorrow?
2. Allen/Shanahan may make a few moves in FA, draft?
3. Shanahan has new offensive scheme that de-emphasizes the tackle position?
4. Look for Heyer/Williams to have career years?
5. We're all gonna be Ravens fans after four games?

6. Run the "swinging gate" formation as our basic O.

I agree with both of you, TWISI and LS. But I am confident that this position will be addressed before training camp. I haven't figured our their plan, but they seem to have one.

WTH was up with the Arenas sentencing?

You have a guy with a gun-prior who plead out to a felony and engaged tried to deceive investigators to cover it up...one month in a half-way house?

You gotta love a city that doesn't take its own laws seriously.

My favorite part of the sentence was the $5000 fine! I bet Arenas pulled out a stack of cash from his pocket and just left 5000 bones on the judge's bench before he left the courtroom.

And then Arenas's lawyer released a statement afterwards. They know Arenas is an overgrown 12 year old who can't even be trusted to issue his own 4-sentence statement of "thanks" to the justice system. Kind of like when your mom accompanies you to the principal's office and apologizes on your own behalf for misbehaving.

He'd probably complain about how he's only allowed to live in half of his house for a month, and doesn't get why...

Maybe that's what happened last year?


Dan: "Hey Vinny, how are those Olinemen coming along?"

Vinny: (gulp) "Ummm, great, Dan. It's going great." (In a low voice to himself) "Crap, it felt like I'd forgotten something."

(Derrick Dockery suddenly walks by Vinny in the hallway)

Dock: "Hello, Mr Cerratto."

Vinny: "Say...Derrick, know anyone interested in playing Oline?"

Dock: "Actually..."

Hey, big stick in the eye to all you Duke haters, most of whom have shown that you are not bright enough to find the school on a map, much less to have gotten admitted to it.

Easy path? So far, Duke has beat #16, #8, #4 seeds. No benefit from facing weak "Cinderella" teams due to upsets. Meanwhile, #1 seed Kansas went out in the second round, beaten by a #9 seed, UNI (a school for sports uniform design) and #1 seed Syracuse is beaten by a #5 seed, Butler (a school for manservants).

Then there's the "University" of Maryland. Or there was the "University" of Maryland. They got bounced early from the ACC tourney and followed that up with a second round humiliation by a lower-seeded team playing without their star in the NCAA.

Rypien11 - I can't believe you brought race into the equation! Anyone can be an idiot. You just put yourself in that category by pulling the race card out of your azz and out of nowhere.

RedDMV - PLEASE... Enough with your ongoing hatred-filled entries. You seem like a very angry person. I'm not a religious person, but I let everyone live by their own rules if it makes them happy, doesn't impose on my rights, and doesn't cost me money/personal injury. Let it go, man!

Also...what is the deal with all the poltical and religious crap! Everyone STFU!! This a football blog. FOOTBALL!! Stick to the subject. If you want to haggle over what you believe is right/wrong in anything other than football, go swim in those blogs instead. You won't be missed.

Sorry, but after reading this crap for an hour, something HAD to be said.
