"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

Where/when did I say he was 'great' ??
This discussion feels similar to the MBB preseason talk last year when when many of us were convinced that Zak Irvin was going to be the new 44% 3pt shooter.

You're supposed to tell me who is going to give us 4.5 sacks and 13 TFL. Remember, we have all of this experience coming back to a unit that you expect to be top 10.

Seems reasonable. I'm getting killed in another thread for saying the same thing, but not nearly as well. Only thing to add here (hot take alert) I can't shake the feeling that if we go press that we see a bit of Peppers at CB before the year is out.

I don't know, man. We'd beat ND every year and one of our quarterbacks would win the September Heisman. Not sure Utah will give us the same juice. But its worth a shot.

@DrTobaggonetc - You do realize that Ryan led the team in tackles while learning how to play the new position, right?

I don't think the writer was factoring in the loss of our bigger impact players with experience. If obsolete wasn't the right word to use, I'm definitely open for suggestions. Its not uncommon for national writers to overlook things and it won't stop me from reading at least 2,234 of these previews before the season starts.

I'm gonna go with...Frank Clark:
13.5 TFL - #2 behind.......JMFR
4.5 Sacks - #2 behind Beyer
42 Tackles - #4 behind JMFR et, al

Fair enough, but without Clark who will provide pressure from the edge of our defense? Countess could have been plugged into some nickel situations without puking on himself. I think we'll be ok, but I'm not convinced our ceiling will be higher than a top-30 unit.

"The defense is loaded with experience and could be fantastic."
DId this statement become obsolete with the departures of of JMFR, Countess and F. Clark?

Somehow this reminds me that we got beat by Kansas State. Soundly. Think about that for a second. If that wasn't a sign that winter is upon us - that we have become an Iowa State - I dont know. Sorry. Carry on..

As a Celtics fan, I had more tolereance for LeBron as a Cav than a Heat. His flopping and on-court whining grew worse down there - probably a result of playing with Wade. I haven't watched him much this year, but it's hard for me to scare up the ire for him now that he's back in Cleveland. And I'll reluctantly give up Bird's spot in the all time starting five to LeBron at this stage.

Yes, travel is a pain. But you can find other parents and carpool - they're all in the same boat as you. My daughter plays club and has started her three years HS. We also lived on the west side of MI, (now live in triangle/NC where girls soccer is practically religion). During our time in MI, she was fortunate to be with a good/great travel team that competed and beat Premier teams in the Detroit area with regularilty at tournaments but at a fraction of the cost. Once we moved to NC, she played club (a "premiere" level but not the same structure as MI) soccer and proabably wouldn't have made her varsity team as a freshman or all confernce as a JR without significant club experience.
She has an outside shot at playing in college, but I'm under no illusion that she's good enough to play at a place she'll actually want to attend - anyplace offering an athletic scholarship, anyway. My goal was to get her to play a sport, be good at it and make friends. We've accomplished this.

MSU '87 in EL. Late in the game, Demetrius Brown throws six (6) interceptions and we are somehow driving with a chance to win....until he lobs number seven at another green jersey. To this day, I sympathise with Demetrius Brown. We've all had shitty days. I'm sure they're shittier when you have a chance to redeem yourself but can't quite get there.

I was going to post this yesterday. Too lazy to dig for a link, but I recall Bama making some improvements to the HS facilities during or before the pre-bowl practices. "Oh. Hey Dee! Didn't expect to see you here!!"

My mind went right to the '97 title, as well. But then I remembered the playoff. And props to them, they deserved to wear the shirts. When you're in Ohio, you'll get Ohio.

I spent the weekend in Ohio to attend a graduation. Lots of portly goateed gentlemen wearing "UNDISPUTED NATIONAL CHAMPIONS" sleeveless t-shirts. Other than that I was fine.

I don't know what kind of authority the HR person has. When I'm making an offer, I always give my first/best offer at the lower end of a scale and promise raises (in good times - didnt promise shit during the recession). I'm clear about this up front. If an extremely qualified candidate counters, I might up the offer by some token amount, depending on the availability of a hireable 2nd choice. Regardless of your perspective or role in a negotiation, you must be able to walk away if there's no agreement.
