If he were still alive.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Have to know how many timeouts||
UTSA has left in order to make this call. If they have one or possibly even if they have two then I think they ran the correct play.

Blake = Minor Deity at this point!
C'mon all you D&D nerds ... posbang for the reference?!?!?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Carroll's was a suicide joke||
He has the same sense of humor as Freeze. Carroll pretended to kick Lendale White off the team and had White storm off the field mad and then go to roof and jump to his death. Well, throw look alike dummy off roof to his death. But the dummy looked so fake nobody bought it for more than 2 seconds.
Both are tasteless and stupid "jokes". I love a good prank but I'd be concerned if my kid was being subjected to something like that. And the "all in" thing??? Really??? Hope the AD is paying attention to that stunt.

Seriously, see if you can get a late first round and a third round from some McCoy slappy.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||LAPD released a statement ....||
saying initially they thought the break in was a burglary until a USC football player was identified as the subject. He doesn't need money!

Cowherd haters hate! He is the speculation king and the king of speculative ideas that can never be proven.

Also spend some time with the wife cause next weekend is Michigan Football and fantasy draft!
|6 weeks 6 hours ago||Miller is suspect NFL QB caliber when healthy||
Take a year off for a dislocated shoulder and he will be undrafted free agent style at an NFL camp.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||He gone!||
|7 weeks 3 hours ago||I respectfully have to disagree also||
Yes, it's taking a game away but you're ticket is still good. You just have to drive 3 hours. You've seen hundreds of games in Yost. How often do you get to see The Sacred Precious play MSU at Soldier Field? If you can't make it then sell the ticket and watch on tv. Just doesn't seem like the end of the world to me.
And I tend to think different venues like that are good for the program overall. Exposure and all that. And lots of alumni over there. I would think we could double the spartoons turn out.
|8 weeks 4 hours ago||Is this really "simplifying the offense"?||
I've heard consistently that the reason we can be optomistic about the OL improving is that Nuss has simplified the offense. We've heard that the OL problems last year were more about confussion than getting beat. Seems like now instead of building on what they did know, we're going to change directions and teach something totally new.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||He's a Southpaw with a 95mph fastball||
Those types just don't grow on trees. And he hasn't pitched that bad lately. I'm not defending Coke but it's not difficult to understand why he's still around.
Tiger's will make playoffs and a hard throwing lefty would be handy to have in the bullpen.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||I'm not a QB guru but||
he seems to have a lot of movement in this throwing motion. Especially his upper body. But Nuss saw him throw and extended the offer so I have to believe there is nothing major wrong in his mechanics.
Hoping nothing but the best for the kid.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||I love it when a person calls out||
another with the "you're clueless and I'm smart" behavior when in fact they are truly clueless. The poster even said allegedly. That means no proof. Not something he witnessed in person. You give him the "you're clueless" bit and then tell a total bs story because you are seriously clueless. You weren't there. You didn't witness it either. But you're so smart you're going to talk as if you know. Ha classic.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Ginobli seriously?||
I love me some Nik but c'mon. If Nik is half the NBA player Ginobli has been I will be happy.
His ball handling and ability to get his own shot won't be so evident in the Association. I see a J.J. Redick type. Great shooter. Capable ball handler. More athletic than most people realize but he's making his money with his quick shot off teammates ball penetration and/or moving without the ball.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Also grew up in the Bad Boy era and Zeke||
was an amazing player. One of the very few point guards that could always get his own shot if he wanted. I'm a huge fan.
But his track record off the court is just as unimpressive and a reason for concern. I wouldn't want him anywhere near the front office of any team or business that I cared about and I do care about the Pistons.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||I think the OP's point is that Cato||
couldn't tackle a cheerleader while at Michigan and then got to the NFL and led the team in tackles!
|25 weeks 6 days ago||Does it allow you on demand access?||
Directv did cinemax a couple weekends ago but it was only the live channels. It didn't give you access to on demand for series, movies, etc.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||I've been to many and the thing is the weather!||
I've gone when it was nice out a bunch of people tailgated and it was a great time. And I've been and sat in the rain in Saline. And I've gone when it's cold and sat in the car til they opened the gates cause it was to miserable outside.
If it was going to be 60 and sun tomorrow, son and I would be there with the guys at 9am to tailgate a few hours and head into the stadium around noon. But it's going to be 41 and cloudy tomorrow. Son and I will get there at 1:30 and watch probably an hour of practice before it's too cold and we bail.

Details, details, details!
|27 weeks 4 days ago||You're making Chait's point||
Craft gets all the accolades ...... and he's an average college point guard. Craft wouldn't even play for many coaches including Beilein.
Teams literally don't guard him because his shot is so awful. He has to pass the ball .... he can't shoot it.
I've been telling friends for last few weeks that we are going to miss Craft. I wish he could play for 8 more years.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||It's almost to lol to reply to but .....||
I'm guessing you're young but maybe not. Anybody that watched the Bulls when Pistons were dominating them know all to well about Mr. Jordan. I used to hate him. Of course, he was the enemy. But as a fan of great talent ... over time ... I had to give him props. And then over more time, come to realize that I was watching greatness .... and over more time, realize I was watching the best ever.
I love Lebron. He's top 10 right now. You can compare Lebron to Kobe all day and it's a great argument. But to compare Lebron to Jordan is just ..... well lets just say ..... don't do it.
I won't even get into defense, and will to win, rings, and records, and winning percentage, and ability to take over a game when it matters, and clutch, .......
Instead, lets talk about your position on supporting cast. You'd be hard pressed to find a NBA fan during Bulls era that would tell you that Pippen is a top 250 player all time in NBA without Jordan on the court with him. Jordan truly dominated a game. He demanded double and triple teams. Pippen was a great player but he's not a top 50 player without Jordan. Pippen was long and athletic but didn't have a great shot and benefited HUGE by the other 5 guys all looking at MJ!
The second player you name is Horace Grant. That's why I question how much you actually watched Jordan's teams. Horace? Really? Replace Horace with Harvey and you'd see exact numbers. Again, Jordan demanded the double team and the collapsing defense. Horace, Cartwright, and Pippen made their living on cleaning up junk when the defense was focused on Jordan. Kerr has publicly said that he made his career off open 3 point shots when the defense was crashing on MJ. If Pippen, Grant, Cartwright, Kerr, etc are receiving NBA pensions .... they should be sending half of it to MJ ..... but he doesn't need it.
So Pippen. Yes, a great player. Not top 50. But the rest??? Grant? Kerr? Cartwright? Toni Kukoc? Ron Harper? ..... These are middle of the road NBA players.
Now Lebron goes to Miami where he plays with Dwade who had already established that he can win a ring by himselft. Very MJ like. Then brings Bosh with him. Not top 50 but a top 3 center in the league. And then a supporting cast .... just to make sure bases are covered ......
Lebron - 1st round
Wade - 1st round
Bosh - 1st round
Ray Allen -1st round
Shane Battier - 1st round
Michael Beasley - 1st round
Mario Chalmers - 2nd round
Udonis Haslem - undrafted but obviously should have been
Richard Lewis - 2nd round
Norris Cole - 1st round
You could make two winning NBA teams out of that roster. All day and any day!
So when people like me hear somebody say Lebron vs Kobe ..... I listen and think pro/con .... good topic.
But when I hear somebody say Lebron vs Jordan ..... ha i can only say ... Lebron has been close enough that he'd already have 6 rings if he was MJ.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah he's kind of like Ray Lewis in that way ......||
He's the Black Mamba! Are you serious? There will always be a network willing to pay him $$$ to put his face out there. And he'll be much better at it than you think.
Only thing that will stop Kobe from a tv career is the 8 figures in his bank account. He won't need to do anything the rest of his life.
You don't think every NBA network hasn't tried to get MJ into a deal? Of course they have. But the MJ's and Kobe's of the world have serious bank. Lebron will be in the same situation probably x3.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||You know there's a salary cap in the NBA right?||
You can say pre NHL salary cap that the Red Wings were the Yankees of the NHL ..... but you can't really compare the Lakers to the Yankees.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||Has to be .....||
That wasn't made by Charlotte.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||Do you think Timmy is a little thicker?||
Or do Knicks unis just add 10 lbs?
|36 weeks 5 days ago||Short term capital gains are taxed as ordinary income||
but season tickets would never fly as capital investments with the irs. I refer back to my above post ..... don't claim the income and don't claim the expenses ;-)
Even if your buyer wants the contribution deduction. The irs will never match the two up.
|36 weeks 5 days ago||Hobby expenses are miscellaneous deductions.||
And subject to a 2% floor of your AGI.
As a cpa that you're not paying for advise ...... don't claim hobby income and don't claim hobby expenses ;-)

was a great RB at Michigan. That does not mean he was adored at Michigan.
