|4 days 12 hours ago||It's not gambling .....||
"Why do you think the same five guys make it to the final table of the World Series of Poker EVERY YEAR? What, are they the luckiest guys in Las Vegas?"
|1 week 3 days ago||Assistant (to the) Regional Manager||
As Dwight Schrute knows so well.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||That's interesting that you say Barkley, Ewing, and Malone.||
I'm old enough where I watched all three of those guys entire careers and I would put them right in with Harden. Great players but not "winners". Each of those guys were capable of putting up 40 but they didn't when it counted. All 3 could disappear in a big game or not end up with the ball in their hands for the final shot.
I don't have any stats to back that up but again as an NBA fan that watched all three's entire careers, it doesn't surprise me that neither of those three won a championship. And it didn't help them that they played in an era that had definite "winners" (Magic, Bird, MJ, Timmy, Zeke).
You can be a HOF'er or even a Top 50 player but not be what I would call a "winner". On the flip side you can be Robert Horry and be an average at best pro and win 7 titles. That doesn't make Horry is a "winner". It just means he played with some "winners".

He doesn't care about Alabama as an instution of higher learning. He runs a college program like a pro team. I wouldn't want my kid to play for him. The only thing he cares about a kid is if he can contribute on the field.
But that's just my take.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||What happened with Hand this year btw?||
Very limited playing time this year. I don't see anything about an injury. Was he overrated or could Bama possibly be that deep?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Can't mention 5 star running back busts without throwing in||
|7 weeks 1 day ago||It's not the alcohol||
it's the no caffeine that weirds everybody out ;-)
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Doesn't really matter if you're Mormon or not||
You have to sign and abide by their ethics code. Premarital sex will get you suspended or kicked out of school. Happens often.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||BYU has been known as the dirtiest team in football||
for at least a couple years. There have been many schools that have complained about how BYU plays the game.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Only one DUI but he did punch Jim Kelly||
So that wipes out half a DUI.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||I would imagine all Big 5 conference football teams are||
self sufficient. But that's not relevant in college athletics. That football team needs to subsidize other sports.
$18M to broom a coach and then the millions for new coach is not chump change for any athletic department.
|11 weeks 11 hours ago||It's so easy to root for O$U this weekend .....||
But not for our benefit. It's all about maximum pain for O$U should we beat them next weekend!
If Sparty beats O$U then they are out of the CFP. If we beat them next week it would be painful for them but they're already out.
If O$U beats Sparty then they walk in to the Big House with all their hopes alive and well. We beat them that day and their pain will be 10x what it would be if they already had a loss.
If that doesn't get to root for O$U then look at it this way ..... don't root for O$U, root against State. That's easy to do.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Intelligent pro style QB's are not a dime a dozen.||
It would depend on his workouts more than the next 4 games but I think he has a great chance of getting drafted late.
The med school option definitely won't help his draft chances. NFL teams like "football" guys with no options other than football. Riskier to spend a pick on a kid that might wake up one day and say "F this, i'm going to med school".
But if he wants it I think he could convince some GM to take a late round shot at him.

|12 weeks 3 days ago||Peppers quote regarding Jehu||
"Probably the fastest guy on the team, though it kills me to say that."
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Harbaugh and Drevno at the Saline game.||
Which Saline pulled out for the W.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||38-6||
|14 weeks 1 day ago||But he doesn't spell "it" with "is".||
So he has that going for him.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Most NFL QB's speak with some level competency.||
I've always assumed it's a requirement for an NFL quarterback. Shows they are intelligent, confident, capable, etc. Things needed to be the leader of an NFL offense.
Having watched Hard Knocks, Mallet sounds like a fucking idiot every time he opens his mouth.
Hard to believe many teammates will be missing his presence in the locker room.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Green falls down if the wind blows too hard.||
What would make you think he could somehow block?
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I understand that 20/20 hindsight is excellent vision||
But that was on Harbaugh. When State didn't drop a kick returner he should have taken a delay of game. Drop one or two of those gunners next to Blake because the only way you lose that game without a kick returner is exact scenario that played out.
I love Harbaugh. But that play was on him. Not Blake.
Also, it should have been made crystal clear to Blake that if anything funny happens with that snap you just fall on it.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Michigan being given the NCAA Championship||
in basketball because of another program cheating, is a headline that I could live without. Not to mention, every time that championship is referenced it comes with the asterick that it was a forfeited championship. Not the kind of championship I'm looking for.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Or $20 a person to throw at||
the guy/gal running the tailgate. Michigan fans are a friendly crew if you're wearing the right colors. But $20 per person is the Michigan way if you're crashing a tailgate.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Assuming you're not familiar with Sam's "gut feelings".||
It's the same as insider info. He rarely uses the term anymore but back in the day a Webb "gut feeling" meant you could take it to the bank cause Sam had an inside.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||I'm overall impressed with Jabrill but||
that guy should spend less time on interviews and more time in the weight room.
His arms just look ..... you know ..... kind of like ...... a NFL linebackers! Jeez!
|16 weeks 4 days ago||He admitted it a week or so ago.||
In an interview he said it "kills him to say it, but Jehu is fastest guy on the team"
|17 weeks 10 hours ago||The same Tark that was videotaped||
running practices in off season time.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||He's a huge part of the success||
But I doubt he wants to take the pay cut to move FSB II. Unless he has a head coach opportunity at that level. If he does, I say thanks coach and wish him well. Football won't make or break Saline.
Jeb looks like D1 talent to me this year. He was great last year but he looks faster this year. I would think a kid with that speed could maybe even land a B1G offer. Btw, Jeb was one of the guys that Simmons trucked! Ouch!
|17 weeks 2 days ago||If he wants to be a 5 star ;-)||
Or maximize his talents. School of choice means a kid isn't stuck. He or she can go get coached up and improve their oportunity. It's not a bad thing.
