OK, so it's summer, I'm not a big fan of watching the soccer on television, and I'm a teacher...a little bored! But, I happend to come across this picture of Jordan Lewis, Jabrill Peppers, and Terry Richardson and I figured some may be interested.
I'm really excited about how good the DBs can be this year. With Countess and Wilson coming back, Lewis' performance in the spring game, Stribling getting all that experience last year, and Peppers in the mix it should be a very talented group. I don't want to forget about Thomas and Taylor too, so hopefully they both continue to make strides.
I will say this picture does continue to make me question if Peppers is really 6'1". Unless Lewis grew a lot this offseason Peppers looks closer to 5'10". But, Lewis sure looks a lot bigger than 174 lbs weight he's listed at...if Peppers is in fact 210 lbs. I'm gonna hope that Lewis is getting bigger! I think thest two are really good this year!
Had a discussion today with a friend and wanted to get the MGoBoard's opinions on who they think will be next.
I think the next national champion of the "big 3" (Football, Men's Basketball, Hockey) will be Hockey because of the excellent talent they have now as well as having another a first round NHL draft pick come in for potentially a minimum of 3 years.
They just have to put it together chemistry wise. IMO, it's all there. We've seen what they're capable of when clicking. That goes for everyone. Nagelvoort was leading the nation in save % for a good chunk of last season as a freshman.
For the next national POY, this is a tough one but I would say Basketball.
Not the greatest news coming from Phil Brabbs today: It looks like his Multiple Myeloma levels are creeping back up. He wrote that he underwent "maintenance chemo" a while ago but it didn't prevent the levels from slightly increasing.
His next checkup is in four weeks. Hoping and praying for the best that he can kick those levels back down.
So I just took the plunge and bought a boat. I figured it should be something fun to help pass the time until September gets here. However, I hear its bad luck to own a boat without a name. I was thinking of something cliche like Bo or Dilithium but neither is really original... Any thoughts?
