I think it is very sad that a young man who stands to make millions in the NFL doesn't have someone in his life that will take it upon themselves to make sure he doesn't do something like this. It's fun to laugh at Alabama and Saban, but this is really just a sad situation. Glad he got caught before he did something even more stupid with the gun.

I'm excited to take my daughters to Finding Dory at the drive-in this summer. The movie will be whatever, but the drive-in is always a good time. I just hope the second movie isn't something crazy. We took my oldest to see Despicable Me 2 and the second movie was World War Z. I only got to see about 5 minutes of it!

I think the only possible explanation is that Meyer is racist and all black people look alike to him.

I appreciate your thoughts, but I'm not sure you understood the intent of my post. I agree that measurables aren't the best way to evaluate a player. My point was just that Mason's measurables actually show more athleticism than people want to admit. Given his ability to read plays, I'm not that worried about his straight line speed. You can be fast as hell and take one step in the wrong direction and never be able to make up for it.

I'm not sure where this idea that Mason is unathletic originated. I'm not a film expert, but if you look at his measurables, he stacks up against any of the ILB's in the ESPN 300. I don't love their recruiting rankings, but they have a tab on some recruits with the camp verified numbers and SPARQ scores. Mason has the fastest 20yd shuttle time and is faster than many in the 40 as well. He also has comparable measurable scores to the other 5 ILB's with "testing results" in their top 300 (which include their #2 ILB Leonard Warner from GA).

Some of my best friends are Browns fans and I can't for the life of me think of why any of you have hope for anything but an abject failure from the Browns front office no matter who's in charge. Sorry, I hope they prove me wrong at some point because they have a lot of loyal fans who deserve to root for a respectable team.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned Jeremiah Holloman at #77 (#11 WR). There's plenty of time to get a good replacement, but his decommitment still hurts. Ace was prophetic in his Hello post.
Edit: I got Snake Oil Steve'd on my comment. Guess I should refresh more often!

Glad to see you're still with us Alex. I thought the Washington mods had gotten recruiting revenge on us and stolen you away. Good write up as usual btw.

Tragic that so many died and were injured. I was raised to hate soccer by my dad who called it really slow boring hockey. I wish I had more appreciation and understanding of the game. This is the extent of my knowledge of British soccer fans.

It's interesting that at 11:45 one of the panelists comments "spiked a lot of second basemen too" at the end of Cobb's list of accolades, to which the host replies yeah, he was a mean one. So Cobb had acquired a reputation as a dirty player long before the fictitious autobiography and other books about his alleged life. Was Cobb a devil or angel? I'd say, like many other things in our culture, the truth is somewhere in between. In between doesn't sell stories, so our "news" reporters will continue to laude or demonize people depending on their own agenda.

My first car was a 1973 Dodge Polara that still had the bias ply tires equipped when we bought it in 1992. We put "new" tires on it that were all varying age full size spares my dad had collected over the years (I have no idea how they were all the same size). I was almost to my girlfriend's house on one of the first hot days that summer and had about a foot section of the tread separate from one of the tires and start slapping against the wheelwell. I got to change the tire in her driveway. I was mortified but she actually thought it was funny and we dated the rest of summer.

I went to HS with a kid who would tell people he drove a "vette. . . a chevette". He thought it was hilarious. He also had the back end lifted like a muscle car for good measure. He still had a mullet way after they went out of style too. Thinking back, I'm pretty sure I went to HS with Joe Dirt.

I always admired Cobb's records and production even though he was a "dirty" player. I wonder how casual sports fans will view Tom Brady 30 to 50 years from now. Will he be considered a dirty player because of all the lazy and negative journalism throughout his career? I sure hope not because that would be a terrible mischaracterization of him as a player and person.

This is all just a ploy by the NFL to try to protect their golden boy Peyton Manning's career records. They are basically stealing a quarter season from Brady, who is only a few seasons away from taking the career lead in several major passing stats. I guess Brady will just have to win the next couple of super bowls to make up for the lost games.

I don't have an axe to grind with Jehova's Witnesses or anything - except one of my babysitters, but she was crazy from the inbreeding (her dad was her grandpa) not her religion. I guess I shouldn't have taken the articles I read at face value. Learning more about hip surgery has thankfully not been a need in my life.

I'm not his doctor, but I've read that he needed hip surgery which requires blood transfusions. Not sure how you can do one without the other.

I don't know what the cause of death was, but he had some health issues that his religion does not allow to be treated medically. So sad.

You have either proven that Cardale Jones is not "dumb" or that academics at OSU are even more laughable than I ever imagined. I'm going with the latter.
