Every time there is a football or basketball game and we start slow 40% of the people on this board are pessimistic cry babies. Why do you even watch the game? It's a long game, and we are still in it. #hail #goblue

I love this article, and I love the highlights the poster provided. There are several reasons the south has exploded in football the past decade. And part of it is that we are handicapped up north in some regards when it comes to high school. In the south they have year round training (we have year round weight-lifting, but there are so many rules against off-season OTA's in MHSAA). They have spring practice (we don't), well paid coaches (I'm a 25 year old varsity assistant and I've been on staff for 5 years, I make $1000/year, and I'm doing football related activities all year long) we get paid barely anything for the time we put in and for as little as we make most people can't afford to put the time in and make almost nothing for it. Sometimes this leads to coaches hiring guys on their staffs who are low-quality coaches (insert like you thought here). There is immense pressure to win (I'd say we are under pressure, but not like for sale signs in your yard pressure), weather conditions (they can run 7 on 7 and do all things outside all year round that we can't). We have draconian rules (We can only work with 5 players and a ball at a time during the off-season). Way more resources for football, and I hate to say more passionate fans but I almost have too. I think it there was the same level of dedication here then the playing field would be a little bit more balanced in terms of production of HS talent.

You guys are seriously nuts. The one guy was on Syracuse's roster last year. That means he was on an elite Division 1 basketball team. They were "air-balling" because Scal is long and it's tough to get a good look against him. Any one of you go out there against him and the result is the same. Unless you have participated in elite athletics then you have no idea how good pro-athletes really are. Scal may have been an average to below average NBA player, but he is still an ELITE basketball player...against anyone.

The one guy was on Syracuse's team last year. You can look him up on the roster. So I wouldn't say that's terrible. The other guy played pro ball in Europe. So they weren't your avergae gym all-stars. I just think it speaks to the eliteness of pro-athletes over even solid athletes.

RIP, and thoughts and prayers to his family. I hope there is a full inverstigation and that it turns out that this was just a terrible accident.

Don't be fools. Go read the evidence on Deadspin, they present it very well. If you think that Teo was an unwilling vicitim you are ignorant. ND is just in a very desperate manner to support their star. But, the truth is painfully obvious when you consider all the evidence...come on people.
