    Forcing people to shake hands is dumb. It's just fine the way it is, well unless you pop off to blount.

    I don't recall shaking hands before the game unless I was a team captain during high school football.

    Whether shaking hands is dumb or not is irrelevant. The fact is that Gundy says he can't control his team.

    So you're saying he thinks he could control his team if it were 70 on 70 instead of 115 on 70? I think you either have control or not. How is he going to stop 70 fights if his authority isn't enough? He should just say shaking hands is stupid and leave it at that.

    Anybody that thinks they can have 100% control of what will happen when 190 testosterone fueled young men about to start competing with each other are forced to get together and "make nice" is probably deluding themselves.... What those coaches can be sure of having total control of is the aftermath of anything that might happen, nothing more...

    I think maybe he's just a bad judge of character. Blount would have been suspended for one cupcake non-con game by Dr. Tom. He would add that he was just trying to help the kid ala Lawrence Phillips. What an absolute jellyfish of a man - a Nebraska politician. Blount had some discipline problems in the past. The university did the only thing it could do in kicking him off the team. Give Oregon credit for doing the right thing.

    Multi-colored sideline cards that signal "Good Game" haven't been ruled out, has it?

    I don't think this comment was meant to be interpreted literally. The man is obviously just trying to relate to the situation.

    I love Grant Teaff, but this was a bad, bad idea.

    Agreed!

    You can put every rule in place, present yourself as the ultimate father figure/respected and feared leader, and have organizational discipline between the head coach and assistant coaches, but that will never prevent just one guy out of the bunch from going rogue. It's the same with school work. No matter how hard you try to instill the importance of academics, there is always at least one knucklehead that just decides not to buy in. And as fans and supporters of CU, everyone should know this point very well.
