It's like "with all due respect" - it negates any response. Magic!

A+ material, that.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Wow||
You're really on fire in this thread.
|7 weeks 4 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.
|20 weeks 2 days 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!"

|22 weeks 1 day 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.
|24 weeks 3 days 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.
|28 weeks 6 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.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||Yikes||
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?
|33 weeks 2 days 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.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||Why do you care?||
I genuinely don't get it. Demanding a different non-response ("no comment" and "family issue" are both "none of your business," aren't they?) doesn't make any sense to me. Hoke was in a difficult spot - he had recently (probably) found out that one of his players was expelled for something terrible that happened many years prior. Ignoring the input of lawyers and FERPA, I'm sure he wanted to avoid giving reporters a reason to jump all over one of his (now) former players while that player was dealing with a life-changing problem (even if that problem was deserved). I generally understand concerns over half-truths and lies, but here, no purpose would be served by "no comment" that wasn't served by what Hoke actually said.
|33 weeks 4 days ago||It wasn't completed because that was the policy||
Per the policy, the matter was dropped if the complainant was not involved. No ugly questions for at least two years (except, perhaps, about the policy itself).
|33 weeks 4 days ago||There may have been a backlog of cases?||
Might there have been a backlog of cases to investigate that had previously been closed due to lack of participation by the accuser?
|34 weeks 4 days ago||What about "star inflation"?||
I'm not sure if it has taken place or not in the past 10 years, but I suspect it has. Anyone know what the total number of 5- and 4-stars on Scout is this year compared to 2004?

Pretty small, apparently.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||Smaller?||
|34 weeks 4 days ago||And smaller again?||
And smaller again??
|35 weeks 2 days ago||If the player the team wants is going to be available later||
If the player the team wants is going to be available later in the first round with the acquired pick, then yes, that means they got value. This is why you always hear Kiper (who I think has his head very far up his own ass a good deal of the time, but I agree with him conceptually here) and others like him harping on teams for taking particular players "too early." If you want player X, and player X will be available with the 25th pick, then trade back to the 25th pick and pick up a little something extra. Value.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks for that||
I didn't catch the reference and was thinking "there has to be a better word you can use there"

Acquiring an extra pick = value.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Awesome graphic||
Pretty impressive track record of making good quarterbacks look very good to great!
|36 weeks 3 days ago||Much respect to Brady||
for sticking by Borges in his comments during the season, but doing what needed to be done at the end of the season. Seems like a good guy to coach under.

Well he's committed to Minnesota [EDIT: and from Minnesota], so...
