Let's Get Pasted: 10/26/2010 Links


Let's Get Pasted is a place where we periodically post a collection of links, quick thoughts, and hopefully one day, a haiku.


Orange-circle_medium OSU's prolific offense readying for 100th-ranked defense |
While it's nice to play the 100th ranked defense, I don't think gaining yards and scoring is our issue.  I would be more excited about the headline "OSU readying for 120th ranked kickoff return unit".

Orange-circle_medium OSU football notebook: Mike Gundy calls K-State's Bill Snyder 'A class act for college football' |
I assume that in return Snyder called him "a whippersnapper that needs to get off his lawn". That is an old joke.  Bill Snyder is really old.

I'm only linking this because it has a section about the hit Eric Martin laid on Andrew Hudson, knocking him out.  After the game, Nebraska special teams coach John Papuchis said this:

"I really can't comment on what I thought about the hit," Papuchis said. "What I will say is, Eric in no way, and as a coaching staff in no way, are we ever teaching techniques that would hurt somebody. And by no means was that Eric's intent to hurt anyone. We wholeheartedly hope that (Hudson) is OK and can resume his career as soon as possible. It's unfortunate that he got hurt."

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said after the game that Hudson was doing fine.

I don't care what kind of a spin you put on it, when a player can tell that another player can't see him coming and therefore can't defend himself, and he launches his helmet at that player's head, he is trying to hurt him.  And the thing is, it's really not Martin's fault.  Football players are taught to inflict pain from the moment they first put on a helmet as a child.  It is the "gray area" part of the game that is just now being addressed with CTE and concussion research, and the findings of how much long term damage a hit like this inflicts will probably soon lead to the phasing out of the idea of hurting your opponent in football. (more on this in a future article)

Anyway, Hudson is recovering and will be fine.
