Mayweather will dominate this fight (unless he's hit the wall since his last fight) and he would have won decisively years ago before the Pac losses (though back then I could have at least made some easy money betting on Floyd). My take is pretty much the same as if this fight was happening back when it would have been interesting...
When two elite fighters meet the edge always goes to the superior defensive fighter and technician. That's always been Floyd (arguably the best ever in that regard). I don't think people realize how much bigger Floyd is going to be in there either. Forget the stats... Just wait until they're in the ring. Pac will look strikingly smaller. Floyd made Mosley and Oscar look like they were fighting up a class or two. Those same guys made Pac look small and would have manhandled him in their primes.
FWIW I can't stand Floyd and I'd love to be wrong. But I think the smart money was on Floyd even before Pac's recent woes.

I haven't watched a lot of e-sports. But when I have the commentators were even slightly more annoying and useless than the typical sports commentator.

So far every season has been better than the one before IMO. That's my biggest worry... That they can't possibly go anywhere but down from here.

Video games are like any other medium. There's plenty of good and bad. In many ways they're superior to all others. The Minecraft example is excellent for teaching everything from creative thinking to resource management. "Video games" are a large part of the future when it comes to various forms of education and training.
Btw- I'm 38 and typically I'm all for "getting of my lawn"...

Is there some inside joke I'm unaware of that makes the Fast and Furious movies cool to like (the new Chuck Norris)? The few I've seen were terrible.

I've seen every episode of both and I enjoy TWD... But it's not even close. GoT has better writing, acting, sets, FX and it's far less predictable. Far and away on all counts. TWD is one of the best shows on tv. GoT is perhaps the best tv show ever made IMO.
TWD is good junk food to GoT full-blown Thanksgiving dinner.

Yeah, as plenty of people pointed out between the draft and the game...
The coaches certainly made decisions based on developmental concerns over "winning" a practice game.

Rudock or Morris is a legitimate question IMO. Never bought into one of these other guys beating out of Shane.

It's not the nasty ones I porked who haunt me... It's ALL the ones I didn't.
... And what is this "NFL" that OP speaks of?

I maintain Morris is the safe bet.
"Reports" from spring are notoriously unreliable.
The lengths many seem to be going to write him off are laughable with such a small sample.
He is the most experienced, most mobile, most highly rated recruit and has the biggest arm on the team.
Call me crazy... But I know where my money is.

I think any words that could be offensive (in any context) should be shunned out of existence... If not outright banned.

As much as I hate to question Brian...
But Devin was "80% dead" due to playing in the same offense Shane had to work with. He also managed an extra 3 Y/A better than Shane playing against what I would have to believe to be (on average) much lesser competition than K-State.

Reading their responses you'd think JH outright called "Urbz" mother a whore or something. They're extremely worked up about this indirect tweet... It really hit home apparently.

As a true freshman, in his first start, playing in a bowl as an underdog (IIRC)...
24/38 with one pick in an offense where he was the leading rusher with 40 yards? With Funchess next with 14? Quick passes were the rule all year because we had no offensive line, no? I seem to remember the consensus at the time being that his performance was the one thing we could take solace in... It was certainly the only thing I recall feeling positive about at the time.

Last time he looked good was the last time they played in a bowl (more recently than the last time the offense as a whole looked good). My money is on Shane as well. I may not be "shocked" if it isn't him... But I'll be surprised if he doesn't start this season.

Or he may have simply decided there was no downside to bringing a guy like this into the fold.

He's not going anywhere. Don't buy the "his heart is in the NFL" crap. It's right up there with "His wife likes the Bay area" in it's weight. It'll be harder to leave than it would have been to say no in the first place.

I'm not sure why "his heart is in the NFL and he'll be back" is the one NFL talking point that we're still supposed to believe? I'm not buying it.
