MgoBloggers prepare to feel inferior.....ESPN has created a site where you can select various athletes, then enter your own salary...and see what they would have to perform to make your salary.
For Miguel Cabrera to make my annual salary he would have to play in
.12 Home runs
I would have to work for 280 years with my current salary to equal his annual salary.
Caught the end of the match today, and I've always known that tennis players have 1 dominant arm thats a lot bigger than their other... but do these people like, not even weight train the other arm?
From this angle Nadal looks jacked
And then you see him straight on... and it looks like he's standing in front of a fun house mirror. Look at the shoulders and biceps differences... I mean, wow.
Anyone a bigger tennis fan/player than I and understand why there is THIS much disparity between his arms? I realize that the one gets bigger playing tennis... but THIS much? And he doesnt lift to try to keep himself more symmetrically strong? (I realize that what he's doing is working... but it just looks weird)
And for comedy's sake... more weird looking Tennis players' arms:
and possibly the best one yet...
Happy Independence Day
Certainly, nothing earth shattering here. However, many have bitched and moaned about RR's classes being lower rated than LC's despite the fact that last year's class that actually got us as close to a full roster as we've been in four years is rated only .65 lower, using the RR system of 6.0, 5.9, etc., than the past five UM classes. In other words, no difference in measurable talent, but a lot more bodies.
Now it would be difficult for anyone to follow CW as far as recruiting as successfully under the Rivals * system, but I think there's much more to it than Kelly simply not taking advantage of the ND brand. According to the chart on front of this site, Kelly is bringing in an average player that RR would put at 5.69 or not enough for a 4th star, but potentially, pretty damn high.
Kelly's accomplishments at all stops have been judged significantly great, even though he took over for a UM coach that probably got some nice talent on board at CMU but Kelly was a bit wiser in knowing how to use it. Probably the same reason for the immediate gain at Cincinnati, where he did a much better job than Dantonio.
It's obvious to me, and should be to most anyone following recruiting that Rivals Ratings will cross paths with who these two recruit often, but by and large they both put much more emphasis on their own conclusions than that of Rivals and both, while taking their own choices, which incidentally are much higher than they've had at former stops, have been successful at all other stops.
I see nothing, actually the opposite that would indicate either will be a failure at their current positions unless they are not allowed to do the job they were hired for.
While both have had different measures of success early in their stays, with Kelly getting the nod for earlier returns, it is quite evident that both are able to produce teams capable of performing at a much higher level than their immediate (same conference)peers, and RR has taken in a step further, proving also he's able to so against the "nation's best," as determined by the media.
If all goes according to my belief of what these two hires will bring, expect a return of the ND vs. UM annual clash to have national implications once again, and it's not in the distant future.
Are you watching, and who do you have?
Lesnar in 2, via tko punches.
EDIT: Also, how badass is Chris Leben? Just fought two weeks ago and now he's fighting Yoshihiro Akiyama tonight? That's insane.
I just logged on to my computer and my start page is MSN news. Without even reading the story I saw a picture of a guy in a Michigan polo. Turns out he's a pastor at a church on the Alabama coast.
Good to know Michigan is represented in the DEEP south. Maybe we can steal a few from Saban.
