It's because they are not too small. They aren't giant man paws, but they are plenty big enough to play QB in the NFL.

MADD wanted outright bans or lowered thresholds but couldn't sell them for the most part and settled for nibbling at the fringes where they could muster the votes.

These were not the purview of 18-21 year olds.



They belonged primarily to the parents of the 18 year olds affected by the 1984 national minimum age change.
I know you're not arguing and I was feeling lazy and knew you would follow up with factual research. That's what you do and you're pretty good at it. I lived through this period and remember it fairly well. The state I was living in, legal drinking at 18 went into effect only months after I had turned 21.

I remember it well also. I was 19 when they moved it to 21 in Texas. They had grandfathered the prior move from 18 to 19 but didn't grandfather the move from 19 to 21.

I guess we're all peas in a pod. did a military stint in Colorado & 18 was legal age for 3.0 beer but was already 21. it really does explain a lot, now I feel parched

In my province of origin in Canada, it's 19. But since I lived in the Gloucester neighborhood of Ottawa, the legal drinking age of 18 was only 30 minutes driving away in Quebec across the river.

It's 18 in Quebec, Manitoba, and Alberta, and 19 everywhere else iirc

When I visited Rice on a recruiting trip one of their selling points was they didn't enforce 19 on campus, just 18.

One of Rice's big selling points to me was Night of Decadence... I have a friend who keeps trying to get me to go, but unfortunately it almost always falls on a damn weekday.

For a nerdy school, they sure can party.

Teddy Bridgewater makes his case to be No. 1
Quote:
"No question, Teddy would fit Bill O'Brien," Weinke told USA TODAY Sports. "I know what Bill is looking for in a quarterback because he recruited my high school quarterback to Penn State before going to the NFL. Bill is looking for the total package."

I like that he has a good head on his shoulders and shows a lot of maturity. I think people just placed Andrew Luck like the next son of god and now people want someone like that so they wont have any questions as to who the "cant miss" qb is in the draft class. Even though wonder boy threw those INTs in the playoffs and HE cost them the game but oh well thats another thread. God these next three days cant get here any faster.

I'm feeling more confident than ever that Teddy will be the pick. He's straight business. If you think Manziel is a better pick.. Well, good for you supporting a Texas kid. Manziel may have more "wow" plays, but that's college. Bortles at #1? Not going to happen. Is Clowney really going to turn this team around? I severely doubt it.

Unless TB isn't the guy to turn the franchise around.

I think TB will help the team improve to become a 10-6 playoff team. Not a true SB contender. That's probably good enough for boardroom BoBBy

That's the same thing I think when people talk about Bridgewater running a "pro" offense & reading defenses. He's reading the likes of UCF & Cincinnati... Temple. pfft.... He's going to see more looks in the first qtr of an NFL game than he's seen in 3 years of AAC football.

there is a fine line between 10-6 and a possible Super Bowl

Don't see teddy interviewing well.
Reporter- Teddy, what do you need to improve on?
Teddy - gets and dumbfounded look on face, then answers with a confused tone, "uh-nothing".

Yeh just not seeing it. Manziel on the other hand, well he's going to blow everyone away. He's got personality, confidence and swagger that sets him apart from any other top prospect in this draft.

Overall, give the guy who finished his degree in 3.5 years over the guy known for hanging out with rappers. That said, I have seen speculation that Brdigewater is more a laidback type versus Manziel's well known bravo.
