This story is not cool on so many levels. On a side note, where did this guy sign his LOI? That's one crazy cobra statue. Prayers go out to all involved.

What a blessing. I'll be that guy though . . . pics or it didn't happen! Seriously though, best wishes for your new addition to the family.

"Payne in the rear" at 18:25 is an instant classic.

Wish I could take all the credit. There was actually a billboard in Chicago.

Guess we have to keep Bieber now. This double sucks.

Harris looks good as always. Anyone know if the coaches have been in contact with DaVon Hamilton? Winning the defensive line MVP award as an unranked recruit seems pretty impressive. Oh, and he goes to Taco's high school.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I appreciate your outline on||
I appreciate your outline on the MGoNoPolitics policy and I gladly accept whatever rules the site has. My main issue with how these discussions have gone down (from what I've read) is that people with religious moral standards have been ridiculed. I know that some MGoUsers can't represent their standards without being opinionated blowhards. That does not excuse blanket comments about people of faith being homophobes, ignorant, a-holes, etc. etc. People of faith can be intelligent and thoughtful individuals who have used evidence and their personal experience to arive at their faith. Faith and reason are not always mutually exclusive.

Seems like a great young man and I am really excited to have him on board. Love the socks!

I was merely addressing Cali Wolverine's comment about the employment lawyer's dream, not this situation. And when I say "included", I say it tongue in cheek. Like a woman or some random non-Caucasian walking down the sidewalk would be "included" in the joking. I am in no way condoning the behavior. As a side note regarding lawsuits, we recently had an employee that was screamed at by her supervisor for going over his head to the EPA to make sure she protected her operating license. She had a meeting with HR, our superintendant, and that supervisor to basically be told she is a bad employee and do what she's told. She is only a year or two away from retirement and doesn't want to push the issue out of fear of being fired. I don't know what this really has to do with the Dolphin's situation, just felt the need to share I guess.

I've worked for 2 different local government agencies over the last 14 years. I can't count the number of times a day I hear crude jokes, cursing, and the occassional N word mixed in for good measure. Managers, the women in the office, and anyone walking by a job site are included in the "joking". I think it happens way more than anyone wants to admit.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I appreciate your response||
I appreciate your response and I just want to make it clear that I don't think my beliefs are a reason to discriminate against anyone. I also am thankful for the way threads are conducted and none of my comments have been deleted so I don't really have a beef with any of the mods. I probably made some assumptions about how conversations were going without having all the information and felt the unnecessary need to defend my POV when it hadn't been challenged. The more I think about it, I'm like the guy that goes to a thread about soccer and says "soccer sucks". While I think this is a more serious issue than the merits of soccer, this is a sports blog and I shouldn't take it so seriously. Unless someone is defending Staee or Ohio of course.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I guess for my own sake, I'll||
I guess for my own sake, I'll avoid "non political", one sided political threads in the future. I am honestly sorry if I have offended anyone with my personal beliefs.

Not lol, but yes, end of commentary.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I have admittedly not read||
I have admittedly not read all the comments in all the threads, so I don't know how out of bounds the comments have gotten. I am just trying to explain why some people consider this a moral issue and by default interject their religious beliefs. Also, if certain comments that don't pertain directly to the sports aspect of this story are going to be deleted, all comments that aren't strictly sports related should be deleted.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||He already has the right to||
He already has the right to pursue whatever lifestyle he wants, and I support that. When he announces to the world that he is gay, he is asking his future teammates, the NFL, and fans to accept his choice of lifestyle. That is where it becomes a moral issue. You can be supportive of a person's rights without condoning their behavior (and I'm assuming that there is "behavior" or he wouldn't be making this an issue). I wasn't very clear about my any opinion is religion comment. What I mean is that it is unfair to say people are "interjecting their faith" into the discussion. How is someone of faith supposed to look at this issue other than through their religious beliefs?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I think the inclusion of all||
I think the inclusion of all these threads about Michael Sam are inherently unfair to MGoUsers of faith. It is very difficult for any person to discuss a moral issue like homosexuality without seeing it through the lense of his moral code of acceptability. Why is it ok for people to support or agree with a homosexual football player "coming out", while those who disagree with the lifestyle are labeled as homophobes, etc. Aren't both sides of the discussion just sharing their moral opinion of the story? Couldn't it be argued that comments supporting the homosexual lifestyle are discussing a type of moral code and could therefore be categorized as "religion" and also be banworthy?

It's not a good sign when you can't tell you've missed that badly. A good shooter generally knows as soon as the ball leaves their hand.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I was all ready to defend||
I was all ready to defend Bruce's position before I saw the whole comment (they only had part of it in the article). He definitely sounds like an ignorant ass or a very poor comedian if that's supposed to be funny. It's too bad that comments like his are the only exposure many people have to "religious" people. If he had just been sharing his religious views, I don't see why that's homophobic. Our culture and my religion seem to have two extremes on this issue. You either have all truth (if you believe the Bible anyway) and no love, or you have all love (condoning behavior that I believe is unBiblical) and no truth. I wish people could articulate why they believe what they believe in a healthier way instead of just criticizing people who don't share their views. That goes for both sides of the issue.

This is the first thing that always comes to mind when I hear Lone Wolf. I used to count the days until the new books would be released.

One of the many reasons I love this blog. I can't imagine another fanbase that would be bothered by this. You sir are "not just a rooter"!
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I agree that it's probably||
I agree that it's probably not wise to bank on your kids going pro and getting a ROI. I still plan on having my daughters learn tennis if they show any interest. My father-in-law has played his whole life and taught lessons at several tennis centers, so my investment will be minimal. Hopefully they will learn a love for sports and physical activity and if that leads to a scholarship down the road then bonus. As a side question, does anyone know about the availability of sailing scholarships in college? My dad sails and claims that several kids in his club's youth sailing programs have gotten scholarships and they weren't even very good.

As long as we're doing bad puns with his name, imagine this in Dick Vitale's annoying voice. . . He's the elLeVerter baby!!!!!
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Love this kid.||
I don't know exactly who LeVert reminds me of skill wise, but he's quickly becoming my favorite player. Especially since he went to HS in Matta's backyard and didn't get a sniff from Ohio State that I know of. They would LOVE to have someone with his offensive skills right now. I hope he goes off in Cbus on the 11th.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Great info. I feel better||
Great info. I feel better about Ohio State not getting McDowell since his parents are making the trip too.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||He had basically a full ride,||
He had basically a full ride, so he probably couldn't write anything off as education cost and therefore paid income tax. Oh well, he still got a pretty good deal!
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Great movie.||
Their mothers must not have loved them as children.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Aren't scholarships already||
Aren't scholarships already taxable income? They weren't when I went to school 20 years ago, but my brother just graduated a while back and I know he had to claim part of his financial aid as income, I'm just not sure which part.

The guy just printed a quote from a Florida player questioning Tebow's abilities as a quarterback. Meyer acted like he made the story up and tried to get tough with the guy when all he did was quote a player.

This may be part of the reason they are having a hard time letting go. Urban does what Urban wants, no questions asked.

Don't forget about McCann. They got zero production from catcher last year.
