Creighton deserves to be a COY candidate just as much as Fleck. And the Hurons are watchable too.
|1 week 2 days ago||and Erich Honecker could par-TAY!||
Moral equivalence much?
|1 week 2 days ago||sure||
I hear Stalin was interesting too. Pol Pot was a barrel of laughs.
|1 week 2 days ago||yes but......||
.... just for the record Fidel was a lefty.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||or blame Jurgen||
I fully expect John Brooks to announce tomorrow on his Twitter that he has ass cancer. About the only explanation for his play tonight.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||but if we find replacements for Jones & Bradley.....||
Yes. ESPN's FPI estimates we have a 41% chance of not making it to Russia with a loss tonight.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||but I was mistaken||
I was under the impression Omar Gonzalez plays soccer for a living.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||sure, if fracking is bad don't do it||
But fracking is good. Real good. Its environmentally sound and really cheap. Your objections don't have a leg to stand on and are increasingly limited to fringe fruitcakes like Bill McKibben & the 350 crowd.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||point to it||
In the post of mine you responded to, what was hyperbole?
|7 weeks 4 days ago||frack baby frack||
Which is why if you don't support energy development you're in favor of SA *and* Teheran.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||unless of course you think Juan Cole is a sober, reasoned voice||
The word "hyperbole" doesn't mean what you think it means.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||and Iran is just as radical as SA||
SA doesn't have hegemonic aims. Iran does. Best to have them struggle against each other than one of them become a regional hegemon.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||there's a vacuum alright||
And its in your post. The Iranians are behind much of the Yemeni problems, especially the Houthis. If Tehran had its druthers the entire peninsula would be paying tribute and the Saudis begging on bended knee.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||slight correction||
"They were fired by Houthi rebels from a land-based site in Yemen."
That sentence is missing something.
"They were fired by Iranian-backed Houthi rebels from a land-based site in Yemen."
There, that's better.

|26 weeks 5 days ago||my kid actually has a shot||
young'un: 13-yo 8th grader, shade over 6' 1", ~195 lbs
Local football coaches want him *real* bad. Was pulled out of a classroom over the winter by the HS coach to get a serious recruiting pitch. Even the baseball coaches wonder why I won't allow him to play football. I've even got a non-local football coach who is willing to train him in the weightroom gratis.
Besides the concussion thing I don't have a ton of respect for coaches. I changed the kid's diapers. I know what he can and can't do and what he might be able to do with a crapload of training. Its amazing the things coaches tell me they can develop out of the kid.
Truth is he's just a big galoot with only one real talent: he can throw a baseball pretty hard.
And if he successfully (meaning no major injuries) trains his ass off over the next 4 years I can ~100% guarantee he'll throw hard enough to go D1 as a pitcher.
Mind you I can't guarantee if he will be able to throw strikes enough to go D1. I can't guarantee he'll have the off-speed stuff to go D1. I can't guarantee his grades will warrant D1. I can't guarantee any offers will be from a good D1.
But I can guarantee his 4-seam will have enough velo to get D1 attention. Plenty of it.
Its going to be an interesting next 4 years.

When I looked down her shirt?
|29 weeks 4 days ago||congrats!||
Best gif I've seen all day.
|32 weeks 1 hour ago||could be worse||
If you think Dickie V is torture announcing college hoops you should see him coaching in the NBA.
|32 weeks 4 days ago||further back||
No, Greg Oden had Granville Waiters disease.
|37 weeks 3 days ago||a punch in the gut||
As someone who attended the heartbreaking '77 title game, yes Wisconsin has a hockey team.
|43 weeks 4 days ago||Payton toiled for years on||
Payton toiled for years on bad Bears teams and never bitched about it. Always played the good soldier. He played the game with enthusiasm unknown to mankind minus Harbaugh. He was right and Ditka was wrong.
And Ditka has admitted it since. He still needs to pay for it.
|43 weeks 4 days ago||i hope he rots||
St Peter is going to stop Ditka at the pearly gates and ask him to justify not giving the ball to Walter Payton on goal line. And then he'll let Ditka look longingly for a moment before kicking him down to Hades.
|43 weeks 4 days ago||no||
Tony Eason >>> David Woodley
|43 weeks 5 days ago||jeez he's smart too||
In that highlight film its fun to watch his DT snaps; when the guards & RB do something unexpected he solves the puzzle so *damn* fast.
|44 weeks 3 hours ago||blow hard||
Well, you certainly don't want a mess on your hands.
|44 weeks 6 days ago||this||
Biggest problem with this post is I can't posbang it 100 times.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||guys like this are why I make my son stick with baseball||
Its apparent God invented football so that Khaleke Hudson could have an appropriate avenue to express his hatred of all humans not named Khaleke Hudson.
|45 weeks 5 days ago||Actually........||
..... as Governor Snyder must realize now the great Lou Schimmel is the reason Michigan needed to perfect cloning.
Sorry. I'm a Lou Schimmel fanboy. And I've been harping on this for years; we need to clone Lou Schimmel.
I'll see myself out.
|45 weeks 5 days ago||it looks bad||
Then its the coaches' job to make that fact clear. Not by relying on Swenson to figure it out; tell the kid straight. No evasions. Tell the truth and do it earlier.
