Don't forget about Demetrius Calip on this team. Lead them in scoring even tho he was under 6 foot. Short but very strong.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Demetrius Calip||
Calip led the team in scoring one season and bridged the 89' championship team to the fab 5.
|43 weeks 3 days ago||Hagerup||
My guess is that if he can stay out of trouble and be an outstanding teammate, he will be back on the team this year at some point.....depends on how the punting game is going as well
|45 weeks 3 days ago||Mercury Hayes?||
Even mercury Hayes? ....pretty sure he was a number 9
|48 weeks 6 days ago||Free concerts all weekend at Centenntinal Olympic Park||
Halfway decent lineup for a concert at Centennial Olympic Park (Downtown, walking distance to the GA Dome). Includes Zac Brown Band, My Morning Jacket, Sting, Dave Matthews, Luda, Flo Rida, and more!
Did I mentiion it is FREE?
Also, for those who still need a basketball fix, I believe the DII and DIII championship games are at Phillips arena (Downtown as well) on Sunday afternoon (bonue-I think its free as well!)
Full concert lineup.

Mangino used to have a sideline fan in his office at KU to keep him cool in the summer. I guess the body's normal mechanism (sweating) didn't cut it and he needed further support to regulate his body temp.
.....can you imagine trying to have a conversation with him while that thing was running?

I got 4 years of ESPN magazine for $16......insider is free for magazine subscribers.
They have simlar deals at other sites and they come around fairly often...allthough I have a hunch they won't offfer to many deals leading up to football season.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Did he play last year?||
Does anyone know if he played last year? If yes, how was his play in general?
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Basements in Georgia||
They build them, but they are all called "daylight basements"....meaning that the basement is half-buried....Typically, you can't see the basement level from the front, but its fully-exposed with a walk-out door in the back (it will look like a 3-story house from the back)....its like they intentionally build them on a hill or something.
Anyway, if you get a basement, you probably won't have much of a useable backyard. I recommend going with the basement, you can't make up for the the extra space especially when the kids start coming.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||What about at a sports bar watching the game?||
I agree that they shouldn't be in the regular rotation after age 18, but my exceptions are
1. If you are attending the game
2. If your watching the game at a sports bar (non sports bars, like a hotel lobby bars are not acceptable)
3. At home for whatever reason.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||prolly a good fit for Tate||
....as good as any...I wouldn't mind seeing a familar face for those 11:30 (eastern) kickoffs on ESPN 8. Im assuming, like most of us, he will learn from his past and he won't make the same stupid decisions. I can see him thriving on the field
|2 years 38 weeks ago||like a true gambler.....||
like a true gambler....you are never satisfied until its all gone :)
That is the big tease about the money-line bets on the heavy favorite....you can alway win 9 of 10 but that one win wipes out everything you've built up.
I try to bet against teams that have horrible offenses and few big play threats to keep potential upsets at a minimum.....but those 5+ turnover games wipe that theory every time.
I also like throwing $10 or $20 on a underdog-moneyline-parlays......they are damn near impossible to win, but the payout makes it like a lottery ticket. I haven't won a big one in a couple seasons....so I am due, right?!
|2 years 38 weeks ago||see below||
you beat me to it, but the answer is that he must have bet all (or most) on the heavy favorites. They can't handicap UFC like a football game (example:" Fedor -5" isn't applicable).
So the bets on the favorites pay out less than the underdogs. The inverse would be to bet all underdogs, in which case the payout would have been in well into the millions.....but its also exponationally more difficult, if not impossible.
My guess is that he took all the favorites.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||payout is "only" 258:1||
Going 12 for 12 is awesome by any standards. Normally you would be looking at around 2000:1 for a 12 teamer. That assumes that you are betting the handicapped lines (Michigan -7 for example) instead of the money lines. For example a $200 bet for a 12 team parlay with linew would pay out close to $400,000.
sounds like this guy bet on all the favorites since the payout was low relative to what a 12 teamer
I've hit many 5 and 6 teamers but never even stiffed anything with a windfall like that. During CFB, one of my favorite things is take a four-team money line parlay with big favorites. This way as long as the big favorites win (not neccessarily cover), you are ok........obviously the payouts aren't as attractive but you can still get 3:1 (or close to it) by taking 4 teams that are close to a touchdown favorite.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||prolly right||
You are probably right, but I can't blame him for wanting to step up and get a shot at leading a major CFB program, even if it is on an interim basis. It could easily land him a MAC level offer, and if successful he would continue to ascend.
However, if he has his fingerprints on this, its only going to publically shame him and he could see a setback to his career. Insteasd of a permanent HC job, he could end up on a staff at a MAC level school.
If I had an offer that tripled my salary, I would definitly be willing to accept more risk or be willing to enter a messy situation for the compensation alone.
IMO it could go either way.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||semantics||
I understand he made the comment giving him an out if/when something comes back that can tie him to the violations. However, if he is really playing a game with his words he should feel the brunt of any fallout if/when he gets drug through the muck.
Most of the media outlets are paraphrasing his statement as the OP did ("he had no knowledge of any violations....."), and he has an opportunity to clarify if he doesn't agree with that interpretation of his comment.
...of course he won't clarify his statement and he will use it as a excuse when/if he is connected to the mess. Its just goes to show you that they may still be trying to decieve the media (invetegators too?). I don't think the media will give him a pass on this and if he is tied to it, he will probably be forced out also....just another bad decision by the AD at Ohio.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Wayne Larrivee!||
He is currently the play by play guy for Green Bay Packers radio. Also, he is on the #2 broadcast team for B1G Network.
He has had a litany of other jobs around the midwest (Chicago Bulls former play by play guy).
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Hawks!||
The Hawks are in a never-ending pursuit of a NBA point garud and Morris may be a good fit at the end of the first round. They passed on Deron Wiliams and Chris Paul and rolled craps with Speedy Claxton, AC Law, Dan Dickau, etc....I'm not sure that Kurt Hindrich is the long term answer either.
Alas, they traded the #18 pick to Washington in the hienrich deal, so unless aquire a first rounder, they probably won't end up with Morris.
Jason kidd has obvious talents, but his jumper wasn't very good coming out of college. He devloped a mid-range (and even 3 pt range) pretty quickly and now hes a hall of famer...My point being is that if Morris' biggest fault is his jumper, some teams may still give him a first-round grade. He certainly has the size, passing and IQ to be a 1st rounder.
|2 years 44 weeks ago||check that. It was 4 years||
check that. It was 4 years for $16.00. I just checked they don't have it listed currently.
|2 years 44 weeks ago||link||
I used discountmags.com....not sure if they have the same deal right this second, but if you wait a week or two it always comes back. Im sure the one above is similar.
|2 years 44 weeks ago||discountmags||
I used that site and bought 3 years for $16 bucks...when they deliver the first issue you use a number on the address label to sign up for insider. I throw away the mag before i walk into my house. Its not even bathroom worthy.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Still in denial||
Thats the first stage of grief. (also applicable to the situation). Acceptance will bring closure.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||not his first dirty rodeo||
This is the same kid who knocked Mallet out of the game with a head shot when they played Arkansas. He also body slamed someone (Charles Martin style for those who remember) when they played LSU. This kid plays dirty when hes presented with a tough oppenent.
He has been conditioned to play dirty when they are in a tough game and his team has been rewarded without any repercussions. It seems like this is something that the coaches had to be aware of, yet they never took action.
I hope they come down on him hard for such repeat offenses, but don't count on the SEC to do anything.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||The restructured his contract when he was cut/retired||
He was owed ~$6M. and they negotiated a deal where instead of paying him the $6M, they would pay him $1.1 for 25 years.
The payments were deffered from 2000 to 2010 (approx), and were discounted at a pretty good interest rate for Bonilla.
The Mets freed up $6.0 in salary when they were competing for championships and basically restructured it into a 25 year annuity starting in 2010.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Rolling Rock||
.......tastes like a keg that was left out in the summer heat for 5 weeks. It may be the oldest brewery, but that doesn't mean its any good.
Other horrible beers besides Rolling Rock:
1. Old Style (see my other reply)
2. Natural Light........its cheap for a reason
3. Black Label beer.........pretty sure you can't find this anymore and there is a reason for this.
4. little kings......yuck
5. any malt liquor......was made to get people drunk who don't know any better
6. Anything "Ice" including Icehouse....it may get you drunk but it tastes like shit.
***BTW my favorite "Stock" beer is Sam Adams, solid as it gets...................not to say that there are numerous other good beers out there, but that is my "go to" beer.
***I am 33 now, so my tastes have changed considerably over the past 10 years and I think age definetly affects how you rank you best/worst.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Agreed!||
I love Chicago.........but Old Style tastes like shit. Chicago homers will defend it, but sorry, it just sucks.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Yep....Its still a party school- no doubt||
However, I would think that the campus-ban on alchool would keep it from being #1. There is definitly no drinking at any campus tailgaiting, which is the majority of the tailgate spots. I am not sure if its a campus-wide 24/7/365 ban.
I just was thinking the tailgate parties would have some weight when scoring the schools and that would be enought to keep them out of #1.
That all being said, its still great place on gameday or anyday for that matter. Ill take Gainesville over Athens if I had to choose.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Georgia.....||
...doesn't even allow booze while tailgaiting on campus (President banned it a few years ago). Very suprised to see them at #1 considering all the university has done to curb drinking on campus.
|3 years 32 weeks ago||exactly||
Its not a secret that the popular opinion is usually incorrect when dealing with vegas lines. I (personally) wouldn’t be contrarian for contrarian’s sake, but if the vegas line is at 7 for u/o and the money is being laid on the under it may move to 6.5 ………..at which point I like (errr love) the over.
My bet is on the over if it drops to 6.5. The wins are Uconn, Umass, BGSU, Indiana, Purdue, and Illinois……..then we just need to pull one from Iowa, ND, Wisky, OSU, MSU, or PSU…….I like our chances against MSU, ND, Iowa, and PSU……love the over..........<disclaimer> Its fucking football and crazy shit will happen....that being said, I still think kwe will go 7-5 or better. We probably wont win all the gimmie's listed, but perhaps we will win two or more of the "maybe's".
|4 years 8 hours ago||Sauna & water||
3 liters of water and 10-12 mins in a Suana. Then rinse off with cool water. Then go back in the sauna for another 10 mins and shower with cold water.
take asprin too.
That is the best remedy I have discovered.
