OT:  October 2014 - College Football thread

Georgia Institute of Technology will be the first university in the world to integrate bitcoin payments into its stadium concession sales and student dining and shopping credit system, announced Wednesday by BitPay, the world’s leading bitcoin payment processor.

Bitcoin point-of-sale devices will be located in the student section of Bobby Dodd Stadium, and the Barnes & Noble store in Tech Square will be home to a bitcoin-enabled point purchase terminal for student credit BuzzCards. Students who use bitcoin will now be able to purchase food and goods at almost all locations on the Tech campus.

OT: September 2014 College Football thread

Link is to Ian Boyd’s piece at SBNation on the evolution of the zone read:

{I}f you were to ask a longtime defensive coach like Manny Diaz where the sport is heading, he’d point you to a signature moment in the most thrilling game in recent memory: Auburn’s victory in the 2013 Iron Bowl over mighty Alabama.

But Diaz wasn’t as struck by the “Kick Six” touchdown that sealed the deal for the Tigers, nor the budding Saban-vs.-spread rivalry. Instead Diaz zeroes in on a play by Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall, one ending 31 seconds before Chris Davis’ 109-yard game-winner.

“It’s the most significant thing to happen to college football,” the 17-year coaching veteran says. “The most important play of last season was the touchdown that tied the game at 28.”

The play in question started out as a standard zone-read play, one Auburn had been running the entire season. It was at this moment that Gus Malzahn’s offense brought football’s future to the biggest stage.

OT August 2014:  Wrassle Mania I

I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about wrasslin’, but with their own thread, they won’t detract from what this site is really about:  the demographic appeal of Swisher Sweets and Grant Brisbee’s taste in porn.

I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about the NBA, but with our own thread, we won’t detract from what this site is really about: Vladimir Putin’s draft strategy, Stephen Drew’s breakfast, and whether Kevin has taken a material step toward harming Russell Westbrook.
