|1 day 17 hours ago||Peppers is a rare guy, at the risk of stating the obvious||
I know he doesn't have a clear position right now, but I will be very surprised if he doesn't make an impact one way or another in the NFL as long as he stays healthy. He's too talented and (apparently) too focused and smart not to.
It's great to see him land a contract like this.
|2 days 7 hours ago||I know it's apples and oranges, but...||
Peppers will have a better career than McCaffery IMO. I don't see how that guy is a top ten pick when Peppers might not go in the first round.
|3 days 7 hours ago||My thoughts too||
It reads like it was taken from a boilerplate document that includes placeholders like "Crime X" and "Problematic Person Y."

Has that been an issue on their campus?

This reminds me a little of Michigan picking up Jake Rudock before the 2015 football season. Both Simmons and pre-2015 Rudock are/were guys whom you could look to for needed stability and who you had some reason to hope might blossom under Michigan's superior coaching.

...what is the opposite of "harumph"?
|4 days 14 hours ago||I hope/believe that no one...||
...is arguing that this accusation is necessarily well founded simply because rape accusations are usually truthful. But there are good reasons to believe that they are usually truthful and that rape is, if anything, underreported. Any one of us could know ten men who were wrongfully accused of rape, but that is still far too small a sample to capture the national picture.
|4 days 14 hours ago||IIRC||
Harbaugh sent him to the press box because he was very emotional and Harbaugh feared that he would be a distraction. I took the delayed decision to be a result of him hoping that his leg might heal much faster than expected and not wanting to give up on that hope until the last minute.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Peppers||
Wasn't he crying before or after the game as a result of not being able to play? Kanell has obviously never bothered to learn about Peppers and what a competitor he is.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Interesting||
I hadn't seen that Beilein had said that. It seemed to say something that Michigan was bringing in a third PG in three years when they picked up DeJulius, and maybe it's just that Beilein thinks he is a guy that you have to take no matter who else is on your roster.
|4 days 17 hours ago||One year||
He played two years at Ohio and one at Houston.
|4 days 18 hours ago||Huh||
I wasn't expecting to land anyone until late May. He seems like a nice addition. Fortifying the point guard position seems wise. Also, he's from Dayton, so he knows how to build an airplane out of bike parts (like any Daytonian).
|5 days 13 hours ago||No, but...||
...his agent saying it doesn't make it untrue either.
|5 days 14 hours ago||My knowledge of the science of this is limited, but...||
...that doesn't strike me as necessarily untrue. A dilute UA result is not an inherent sign of drug use as far as I know.
|5 days 14 hours ago||From Schefter's Facebook account:||
According to a CAA spokesman, who works for agency that represents Jabril Peppers:
"Peppers went to the combine. He was sick after flying there from San Diego. He has a history of cramping. Peppers was being pumped with fluids, drinking 8-10 bottles of water before he went to bed, because he was the first guy to work out two days for the LBs and DBs. He had to go through that first day, come back on second day, and that was the fear. So Peppers was pounding water and under the weather. He never failed a drug test in his life, nor tested positive before for any substance."

Accessing the site through a tin can attached to a piece of twine looks like it always does.

...until he knows/thinks he won't be drafted. His preference is to stay in the draft.
|1 week 1 day ago||He played for Shaka Smart on a US team||
Smart is the major reason he's interested in Texas.

...along for there to be any news re: him.

I'm well aware that excercising when you're depressed is easier said than done, but it's a great help in my experience. I'd choose a very easy goal if she has trouble getting started, like walking .5 miles a day. She should set goals that she'll almost surely meet in order to minimize the chance of becoming discouraged. Not everyone has to be a marathon runner.
I should add that I'm not a doctor and that I don't mean to suggest that excercise is all that is needed for the OP's friend or anyone else. But as someone who's struggled with depression, I wish I'd started working out sooner than I did.

For your disclaimer alone.
|1 week 2 days ago||I love Harbaugh's loyalty to his players||
You can see why guys will put their bodies and minds on the line for him.
|1 week 3 days ago||This is correct||
The facts will be re-heard in any civil suit if the case doesn't settle first. The only possible effect here is that the jury in the civil suit is aware that Hernandez was found guilty by a jury in the criminal case
|1 week 3 days ago||That is incorrect||
You can sue an estate in Massachusetts. I assume you can do it in every state, but I know you can in Mass...I should add that this is not legal advice. I am not the lawyer of anyone reading this. I'm just a cave man who some scientists dug out of the ice.
|1 week 4 days ago||Wow||
That is a hell of a streak.
|1 week 5 days ago||breaking it down||
Speight likely throws a heavier punch. Peters is almost certainly quicker. Peters has to pick his spots as far as when he attacks Speight and always keep an eye on Speight's right hand. He can't be caught napping. And he doesn't want to have many exchanges in which they trade punches.
Speight needs to jab to keep Peters away from his body. Peters is going to have to do a lot of dancing. Will he be tired by the end - or will Speight? I think their endurance will have a lot to do with who wins. Road work decides this fight.
|1 week 5 days ago||Speight's ceiling||
The comments about that seem to ignore the fact that quarterbacks sometimes continue to improve mentally even after years in the NFL. Speight is not going to be Cam Newton, but there is no reason to believe that he cannot improve.
|1 week 5 days ago||I appreciate you sticking up for your guy, fwiw||
He looked very sharp. I think we can all agree that Evans and Higdon will both get a lot of carries.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Cracking down on the camps is dumb||
How does it help high schoolers to deny them the chance to go to camps with coaches they otherwise might not get to interact with? Kids want to go to these camps. Jim Harbaugh wants to hold these camps. His less hard working competitors - people who lack his enthusiasm and love for football - can go on vacation if they want. Everyone won prior to this rule.
