2014 NCAA Football - FCS Playoffs

Rule Changes, UD, Iowa, Facebook and LSAs

CS Weekly Update: Issue #2

This has been another very busy week with lots of controversy on many differing subjects and I will  summarize a few of them below.

On Thursday the NCAA adopted three new rules. 1) players are not allowed to have any symbols or messages on their eye black starting in the 2010 season.  2) wedge-blocking formations of three or more players by the receiving team on kickoffs has been banned for the 2010 season and 3) players will now be penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct as a live-ball foul beginning with the 2011 season. These new rules come with both approval and protests from users across the country.  The most debated rule would be #2 as to what is acceptable taunting and celebration.  Many don’t believe that refs have the ability to make proper judgement… unless of course the penalty is on the opposing team, or any team in the CAA for that matter.

In other news, the NCAA denied Deaware’s TE Josh Baker a 6th year of eligibility.  He was injured in the first quarter of the first game in the 2009 season which ended his season and now it is apparent that it also ended his college career.  My question to you all is… how many fricking years does it take for a CAA football player to graduate?  6 Years?  Really?  All kidding aside (no offense to you Mr. Baker) this just shows that the NCAA is starting to sway to the west. WCB

Iowa… what can I say about Iowa?  Actually, what can’t I saw about Iowa.  Iowa has been the most discussed topic as of late and I am starting to learn just how bad ass that state is.  I mean they have flying fireballs, hailstorms that could take out a small country (excluding Iowa), a sub par football team and don’t forget the Austin Powers missile silo with attached pig trough.  They even have a “mature discussion” thread on the subject, which happens to be the only official mature topic on this entire site.  I’m sure it is soon to be hijacked by a JMU poster soon, oh wait… it was started by one, $#%&.  The only thing Iowa doesn’t have is Willie, and he is one bad ass MoFo.

Facebook rarily makes it to CS (most users on this site can’t figure it out) but when it does, it can be quite the interesting conversational topic.  This weeks facebook topic was asking whether or not andy7171 should add one of his lacrosse players’s mom on facebook and stalk her.  This turned into many demands for pictures which then brought out more facebook mommies from Towson and was quite a treat for all. It was like a trip down memory lane for the 2 people that know where Towson is.  We did get to see a picture of what she looked looked like in the 80’s but have yet to see a recent one so the judgement is still out. andy7171 did end up adding her, which makes his brother andysbrother7070 very happy as he can now…

The last but not least and hugely debated and overly controversial topic is LSAs.  You might be asking what the heck LSAs are?  Well, LSAs are Left Side Avatars (AKA Left Side Profiles) on the topic pages.  It seems that a few (Ursus, dback and DJH, not to name names) can’t seem to grasp the concept of having the information on the left with the pictures on the right.  As of right now, LSAs do not work but we are hard at work *cough* (camping, drinking, fishing, partying) *cough* trying to get these things fixed so please be patient.  If you don’t give a rats ass which side the avatars are on then please ignore this topic and continue on.

This just in, Alpha has a best friend (no homo… or is it?)

This has been your CS Weekly Update!  Enjoy!

Should there be another MISSOULA ENCOUNTER so Ursus and Chris can hash out this issue over many beers? If enough folks show up they should be able to pull Chris off of Ursus should it turn bad.

The avs are above the content, not to the left of it ;)

Good job Chris. Shut your mouth Grizo. Interesting that the blog is the problem with the av's being on the left side but ON THE BLOG the avatars are on the left side. The wave of the future crashes on the shores of YOUR OWN BLOG. Seriously, good write up man and it is a great new thing you've incorporated.

Great write up again this week. Willie really is a bad ass. He's quickly approaching Chuck Norris status. As is Iowa. Clenz, however, is not approaching Chuck Norris status.

For the longest time, I thought it was LTA's. I don't know what that means, but I thought that was what LSA's were called. I was promptly corrected @ lunch today, and the correction was followed by far more laughs than necessary. Side note to Ursus: Are you happy now, you kiss ass? Your name got mentioned in Chris' blog! Freakin' brown noser!

Iowa doesn't have a problem with LSA's, yet Iowa doesn't currently have Willie either. hummmmmmm

HAHAH, even better than last week. The picture of Andy's mom crush makes it worth while. If only you had the current one to put with it.

It doesn't matter that they are above it. They are on the left side of the page even if you say they are not.
