I called that as soon as news broke that he was transferring. It keeps FSU relevant at the very least.

I coach softball. The most dedicated thing that I do is work hard at helping my players pursue their goals in the sport, and most of them want to play in college. That's what I push for. I want them to succeed.

For every one Ccijanovic that dares to speak up about the powerlessness of a student athlete, there are hundreds who stay silent because of the derision that the one experiences. Being told to "man up" is why we have concussion lawsuits. We can't have it both ways - complaining that coaches make too much money and the NCAA has too much power and then scorning kids who rely on these sports for scholarships for not being grateful for their education.

I'm interested to see if part of the due diligence on behalf of the Seahawks included determining where other teams had him ranked on their draft boards. He went in the second round, which tells me that the Seahawks weren't the only ones interested in him early. I'm not convinced that the Seahawks didn't do their due diligence. I think they assessed the liabilities and decided that he was worth the PR risk. The Seahawks also didn't have a glaring need for a DE which tells me that they might handle the fallout a little better than other teams that need depth at the position.

Oh sure, mock one of the very best softball coaches in America, if not the world, because she's a middle-aged woman. Never mind the fact that she resurrected and has presided over one of the winningest programs at Michigan, and has never had a losing season as a head coach. I'm sure your credentials are just as stellar.

MGoUsers griping about recruiting commitments/decisions, especially from relatively unknown players. In coaches we should trust. CRAZY SUBS AND HARBAUGH.

Who cares? I bet Obama himself saw the picture and got a chuckle out of it.

I'm not his biggest fan, but it wasn't his record that was the main cause of the issues currently. He was 7-5 in his last season and those players then turned in 11-2 in Hoke's first season. He is considered to be a better coach than Hoke at this point, so maybe the bigger picture does matter.

Right, because the women going to the camps don't know the difference between a touchdown and a field goal. Dick.

Sometimes they're impacted and on a routine checkup, they find out that they're starting to grow and cause pain to the molars, so taking them out ASAP will prevent damage and relieve pain. Happened to me.

I'm looking forward to this because I'd like to see who the first quarterback drafted is. That should be a good indicator of what's to come for the season, barring anything outstanding occurring.

I'll take that bet. I usually make the third shot when I start slinging them from half court.

I had a coach that suspended me for four games for the returning a day late from my future father-in-law's funeral at Arlington. This is pretty tame. People need to stop freaking out.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||My conclusion is that on this||
My conclusion is that on this list, two athletes have won a super bowl in the past few years. One of them is slow and the other is fast. Think now of the top five quarterbacks in football right now, I'll say they are Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, and Aaron Rodgers. 5.3, 4.8, 4.83, and 4.71. What I see is a group of average runners. Maybe in the future the faster guys will have a bigger impact on the NFL, but the only two fast quarterbacks to have a huge degree of success so far are Russell Wilson (who is not a statistical marvel, he is an elusive but excellent game manager) and Andrew Luck, who is a pocket passer first. Ultimately, the throwing quarterbacks are the better quarterbacks, regardless of how fast they are.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||I just think people are||
I just think people are getting overly enamored with speed and it's not necessary. People can rave that you can't teach speed, which may be true, but RGIII is the perfect example of what happens when speed is the underlying factor to the success of a quarterback. Surely we can agree that Denard was not a great quarterback. Would you rather have a fast guy that can throw, or a thrower that can run? 4.9 for a guy that's been touted as the more NFL polished than the guy with blazing speed behind a one-dimensional offense is not terrible, and Winston has great pocket awareness. I don't think either prospect is a slam dunk but all the same, the 40yd isn't going to be the definer of this particular draft pick. In fact, I'd bet that Winston gets drafted higher than Mariota.

2008: Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco, Chad Henne, Matt Flynn. 4.89, 4.84, 4.92, 4.79. Joe Flacco is the only one with a ring.

Since when has the quality of a QB been their 40 time? Tom Brady ran a 5.28.

As an athletic institution, maybe. Would we lose more games? Initially. Would we lose more money? No.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||First, this doesn't apply to||
First, this doesn't apply to football. The NFL already saw to that. Second, why is this such a big deal? They are student athletes on scholarship. Besides, when was the last time Michigan had a one-and-done player? Beilein already knows he isn't getting those guys. He gets the development projects and turns them into lottery picks. I don't think this would cripple the B1G, I think it would set a precedent and force the NBA to change their stupid rule.

Removing the cap on football scholarships means being aware of the fact that the NCAA then has to allocate more scholarships to women's sports so they don't run into Title IX issues...

The know-it-all that thinks that because he played high school defensive tackle he has more insight into the coaching decisions of D1 football than anyone else.

Seriously? After the absolute degradation of guys like Mike Weber by this very forum? I think he's making a man's decision by controlling the process and not letting it control him.
