The nature of a QB controversy is important. Brady vs Henson is a "high class problem." "Sheridan vs Threat" is merely a problem. Here's to to hoping we have something closer to the former.

I can testify about the NC representative. Johnsons in Siler City is a weird place that is only open at select times during the week. Sometimes the old man shuts her down with the line out of the door at 12pm. Having to go to Siler City is a drag in and of itself, but that cheeseburger "all the way" is the truth.

Dude likes that spot near the top of the arc. Driveway hoops.

I'm not a Duke fan - and K has always seemed a bit sanctimonious - but I know plenty of people who are relatively connected to the University. He's been successful to the point of not needing to tolerate players who will endanger the program. As mentioned earlier, K likely kept Sulaimon in the doghouse until the story was formalized.

First year under Rich Rod was a disaster, spread offense needs a QB much faster.

Too many favorites. Top 5: 1) Omar; 2) Wallace; 3) Bubbs; 4) Bunk 5) McNutty. But this could change during my next binge.

This. And the story becomes the poorly chosen string of words. Welcome to the new world of media. Clicks, baby.

Will they or won't they? Shows always jump the shark after the hookup. Hopefully these guys draw things out for a couple seasons.

But did they under inflate their pucks? We have to get to the bottom of this.

I understand your point. And I'm not a Bobby Knight apologist, but you might be overthinking it. By saying "I will NOT go 8-10" he could just as easily mean "I don't want to accept this level of mediocrity, so why should you?" That's a message that all coaches and leaders deliver in some way or form.

Maybe. Maybe not. But I'd rather this thread didn't go much longer than my post.

Glenn Edward "Bo" Schembechler, Jr. was born in Barberton, OH.
Gary Moeller? Lima, OH.

Knight was successful in his time. His approach wouldn't be effective with millenneals. At all. Which is about the time he started his broadcasting career.

I love this blog and needed to read the article, as well. I'm just not sure I would have described Dave Brandon as "a piece of shit human being."
I don't dispute the content of the article or its assessment of Brandon as an executive, but this final scud could have been a little less caustic and personal. He has a family, etc.

Shocked "Chill" Clark didn't commit to Rocky Top.
Agree - I went to a couple games in Knoxville. Had a blast. Loud stadium. Saw them make a miracle comeback against Arkansas in '98.

I was playing this for guys in my office and we all shared the same opinion. And none of us were Bobby Knight fans.

It has to suck to be a Pacers fan. Indiana was also capable of routing the Lakers in the Finals that year. Both Eastern teams were playing at a high level at that stage of the Playoffs.

Day 1: complete paperwork, physicals, waivers
Day 2: "let's go around the room and mention something that nobody else knows about you" then some light stretching, run a few laps around the goal posts
Day 3: (some variation of this):

It often seems like opposing fans/political parties/religions/neighbors love reading stories like this. Helps separate us from them. People really are the worst. I'm gonna go crank up some Morrissey and pout.

I'm going to assume there are more players with known or highly suspected concussion issues that aren't asked to leave programs. Otherwise I'm down with your post.

I'm not giving up on Michigan Man. Serious. Worked too hard to get there. Worked hard while I was there. It's a standard.

He also mentioned wine. A bit of a dandy, this one.

To be fair, unless your name is Bench or Piazza, .220 is pretty standard for a backstop.

Morris has bounced around as a broadcaster over the past few years. He's below average.
I've heard a lot of the radio and tv crews around the league. I'm not a Tigers fan but Mario and Rod are petty solid. Morris/Gibson will add nothing. Gibson might say something stupid and could be entertaining in that way, but I'm guessing it'll be like listening to some blowhard in a bar wax about the glory days and how the "game should be played."
Jon Miller (Giants, formerly ESPN) is the best TV guy in the business. Radio is a bit tougher to rank. The newer guys around the league sound pretty generic. It's easier for me to list the bad ones. So I won't.

Seems like we are *due* for better turnover luck in general. Obviouly better QB play this year helps the margin.

I know. But I just got one of those Weber Genesis gas grills. It's like a commercial oven on my deck. BRING ON THE MEATS!
|3 weeks 3 days ago||OOS applications for UNC-CH||
OOS applications for UNC-CH increased dramatically in the past few years due to common app. OOS acceptance rates haven't kept pace. Too lazy to give you the links on a sunday night, but my daughter is a HS junior, so we've been looking at such things. This thread is a coincidence because I remarked to her the other night that her chances at UM increased after we moved to NC, as opposed to when we lived in MI.

I think those motherless bastards are as greasy as the next guy, but I don't think losing a position coach will be the worst event of this kids life. I'll admit I'm much older now and a few years removed from my freshman year, but Weber will be OK. In any event, he could have given us a hard commit and avoided this.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Brian Kelly, Butch Jones and||
Brian Kelly, Butch Jones and Dan Enos were supposed to be hires that had the in-state roadmap for recuiting. I have now idea who this guy is. Enos set the bar pretty low, so he has that going for him.
