|3 weeks 2 days ago||IIRC, KCP averaged 30 in last||
IIRC, KCP averaged 30 in last year's summer league action and averaged under half of that (~12 ppg) during the regular season. Not saying Stanley's stat line wasn't encouraging, but take summer league stats with a grain of salt. Like Magnum PI said above, even Austin Daye figured out how to look impressive in Orlando and it never matriculated into the regular season. I'm still on the fence as far as the pick and thought it was pretty unanimous amongst NBA scouts and journalists that Winslow was the better prospect (assholeishness aside on his pre-draft visit to Detroit). Johnson may end of being in the league longer as a 3 and D wing (depending on his progress on his jumpshot) but Winslow has more upside. I hope like hell Stanley proves me wrong because Detroit needs assets in their rebuild and just lost one of their premier ones to Milwaukee for nothing.

|7 weeks 4 days ago||I actually have a Largo||
I actually have a Largo address now, but we moved to Clearwater from Michigan initially (and when I made my screen name). I'm near Belcher and East Bay now. My buddy's family actually owns the Chainwheel Drive bike shop on Drew and Keene and I drive through that area a lot because the bulk of the friends I have down here live in the downtown Clearwater area and I prefer Drew to Gulf-to-Bay/Court St.

Wouldn't be surprised in the least bit to see him go shirtless again today. It already has a real feel temp of 90 degrees right now (on the other side of the bay where I'm located) and it's only going to get hotter as the day progresses. When I saw the video of him pumping up the campers I couldn't believe he opted for a sweater (khakis obligatory) in June in Tampa. If nothing else it gives him an excuse to go skins in today's pickup game, much to the Internet's delectation.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Can anyone show up and sit in||
Can anyone show up and sit in the stands and observe? I'd love to be able to see the coaching staff while they're in my backyard but don't want to sit in traffic on the Howard Frankland for an hour just to be turned away when arriving at USF because I'm not a camper. Thought I heard yesterday that some fan drove from FL to Prattville and Harbaugh hooked him up with an autograph for making such a long trip, but don't know if different camps have different rules depending on who the host is.

For carving out a nice 14 year Arena League kicking career.

If his username is any indication he probably has a lot of pet peeves/kidney stones, or both.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Well apparently||
I should have scrolled down a smidge.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Would be nice||
If it was a 3 column sheet with the actual draft order and who's team they're on in the next column and the comments they made about their pick in the next. Then at the bottom, list Sam and Marcus's teams side by side and ordered by position groups.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||I thought the controversy||
after that game immediately surrounded the guy in charge of the stadium game clock. I realize the refs frequently tell them to reset the clock to a particular time in-between plays but in that instance they just didn't whistle the game dead because the game clock still hadn't read 0:00 when Smoker hiked the ball, miraculous as it was. Seems like it read 0:01 for 3 seconds, IIRC.

|23 weeks 6 days ago||I'm with you||
in thinking it isn't a big deal that they are playing on Thursday. It would be a bigger deal if it was a mid-season game and threw off the weekly routine but being the first game of the season they will just have a couple more days of rest and preparation for the game the next week.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||You're right.||
It was Brady who was straight breakin' the Seahawks cornerback's ankles on those two inside-out routes in the SB with the second one resulting in the go-ahead TD, not Edelman. Both Welker and Edelman are tough receivers who aren't afraid to go over the middle and are crisp route runners. Yeah sure, it didn't hurt their careers to have Brady throwing them the ball, but they weren't "made" by him and would have had a place on the Patriots during their respective years playing for them no matter who the QB was, albeit most likely with less gaudy statistics.

why he's always wearing sunglasses.

for lumping them together in any circumstance.

do not equal Hoke.

that Chris Clark attends Hogwarts.
Edit: Same minute as maizeandbluewahoo but beaten to the punch nonetheless.
|30 weeks 15 hours ago||I've been wondering about this||
and don't understand. 10% (for example) is 10%, regardless if it's an NFL or college contract. Is it below him to represent Jim Harbaugh because he's coaching in college now? Or is there some sort of certification process he would have to go through that he doesn't feel like doing to represent a college coach? Seems to me it would have to be the latter because money is money, but I could be wrong and Dunn could just be full of himself.
|30 weeks 15 hours ago||Makes me wonder||
about the tweets from the tweeter formally known as thosewhostay7 who was giving updates about Dunn meeting with Harbaugh after the Niners got eliminated from the playoffs to discuss his future and gave Michigan-centric positive updates. If Dunn was out of the loop, I have no clue how he supposedly said too much and had to delete his Twitter account and posts, or how his source close to Dunn would've got any info in the first place. Seems like the info he got would have been NFL-centric if Dunn really was the one leaking info to the press.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Not anymore.||
As of right now he doesn't have wiki page.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||If you need to be reminded to wear khakis to the game:||
Just stay home.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks for breaking that down.||
I had saw it on a list someone posted of last year's highest NCAA coach salaries on the board. I knew he got to that point from some sort of incentives that kicked in, but a stay bonus never entered my thought process.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||........................FINAL||
|30 weeks 1 day ago||On top of that even||
is the fact that he's an alum. What an un-loyal piece of shit.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||$40 mil signing bonus?||
|30 weeks 1 day ago||2nd highest||
At 5.6 million, IIRC.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||Is Roman a good recruiter? I||
Is Roman a good recruiter? I realize coaches in coordinator positions don't typically earn their keep recruiting, but it sure as hell doesn't hurt if they can. Durkin obviously can recruit, but I'm completely in the dark as far as Roman.

You don't say?
|30 weeks 2 days ago||He would be good in Oakland.||
Instead of just crappy they will be charismatically crappy. Imagine the lineup of Reggie McKenzie, Mark Davis, and Rex Ryan running a franchise. If Hard Knocks isn't in Oakland next year for that then they might as well cease to make the show.

GM Phil Emery. No word on Trestman yet.
