Lots of good points, convincing stuff. Press your luck and post a few more.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||SPOILERS||
Come on man, some of us haven't seen or read the end of the series yet.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Here's hoping Saban gets what's coming to him||
And by that, I mean an Ole Miss player rolls up on Saban's leg, tearing Saban's ACL, followed by Alabama deciding he is no longer is living up to his commitment and encouraging him to pursue a new opportunity, perhaps at a community college or Gorgia Southern.

Must be beacuse we're a bunch of quitters.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||What exactly do you have in mind by "power"||
And how do you suggest we wield more of it?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Commitment to Student's (Potential) Education||
I hear you, but I think it's a good policy, as it fits in with the theme of the universities making a full, up-front commitment to educating the athlete regardless of the path of his or her athletic career.
My question is, does anyone know how this plays in with NCAA schlarship limits?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I think it's actually Dave Brandon talking to the medical staff||
While discussing whether to characterize the concussion as "probable," "questionable," or "doubtful."
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Can we distinguish between the leg and head injuries please?||
If the medical staff decided that Morris was not concussed following a proper test (I'm not saying that a proper test was administered - I have no idea), I don't see how we can villify anyone for Shane playing on a busted leg. Football players play on hurt feet/ankles/legs/whatever all the time, and generally that accepted as ok if the player is willing to go, yes? Case in point: this here blog singing the praises of Gardner for playing a great game against OSU last year on a broken foot.
[EDIT: for the record, I'm only responding to the post above because of the "head, leg, whatever" statement; not saying you're villifying Hoke for playing Shane on a bad leg, but it seems like some people have been doing so.]
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Pretty sure no one noticed...||
...that you were continuing the previous list of things that people say that are confusing.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||I think Morris took the next snap||
Took the hit under the chin, almost fell over and had to be held up by a lineman, never left the field, took the next snap (as I recall). If my recollection is correct, big problem that Hoke didn't take him off the field.
|8 weeks 18 hours ago||There were several thresholds||
At 180, 195, and 210.
[Edit: the 180 and 195 thresholds received separate, smaller bonuses.]

How about softshoes with 10 mgopoints per year. And I thought I was bad in that category.
|8 weeks 19 hours ago||Alternate theory||
He might be making sure he preserves his record K/walk rate. Another walk w/o a K and he wouldn't have the record. Name in history books >> relatively small sum of money for him.
|11 weeks 19 hours ago||If you say PERIOD no one can disagree||
It's like "with all due respect" - it negates any response. Magic!

A+ material, that.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Wow||
You're really on fire in this thread.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||This comment and your avatar||
Something about the combination really ratcheted up the comedy on this one.

is what some may say, but I think you're right.
|29 weeks 2 hours ago||Yes.||

The message is "We believe enough in this guy to pay him a lot, so the athletically-gifted high schoolers of America should believe in him too!"

|30 weeks 6 days ago||The NBA doesn't care about the kids' education||
The NBA doesn't care about the education of its' players, and it doesn't care about whether its future players go to class. It cares about giving players more time to develop as basketball players before they enter the league so that teams have more time to evaluate guys before drafting them. That's not hypocrisy, it's good business.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||Dion Harris & Courtney Sims||
Harris had so much potential, and just never developed because he was forced to go one-on-one in the last 8 seconds of the shot clock for most of his career.
Also, Courtney Sims. Big dude, pretty skilled, but soft.
|37 weeks 3 days ago||Love it.||
Have some fun (assuming they do it after big shots and not just a random three 10 minutes in).

I don't think he was questioning work ethic so much as he was pointing out the likely difference in mentality (and the difference it might make when your job is to hit someone else as hard as you can on a repeated basis) between someone who had to scrap to survive growing up (and may have been rasied in more violent surroundings) and someone who didn't.

I see the character of Yeezus is lost on you gents. He needs to bring back the all caps.

All I can say is yikes.

"Legitimate" is such a flexible concept. And I think I need further guidance vis a vis acceptable food baskets and clubs. Would a "Peanut Butter of the Month" be ok?
|42 weeks 10 hours ago||People keep saying this...||
But I don't think it's necessarily true. Raking Meyer over the hot coals for having "this guy" on his team for four years, sure, but not over what he said. What Hoke said was a non-statement.
