Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Mel is the obvious one, but also Bonnie Tholl who if I'm not mistaken is in her 22nd season as an assistant to Hutch.

Gil that was my point, look at the guys that other countries are getting to play in the tournament. While the U.S. Team can't pull ever their second tier talent for the tournament.
|1 week 8 hours ago||I just don't think US hockey||
I just don't think US hockey values the world championships. You see Canada bring top guys over, even after eliminated from playoffs. U.S. tends to not, guys like Oshie, Backes, JVR, Kessel, Quick, Miller, DeKeyser, etc all who will be potential Olympic team guys don't seem to want to play.
|1 week 9 hours ago||It's really different||
It's really different mentality, the Czech, Russians, Swedes, Fins and Canadians bring some of there top players. While the USA can't even get Danny DeKeyser to play. Instead they are dressing NCAA players, and Hendricks is captaining the team.

Not that I don't like Blashill, but I think there are other options the Wings would look at:

Grab a double works (or delux if that's more your thing). Finish with a frozen custard. Probably won't need to eat any calories for 2-3 days but it will be worth it.

Compound fracture of my left arm while playing Varsity hockey freshman year of high school. Arm had a 90* bend about mid forearm.

Semi-OT... Guess that's one way to classify the OP. In any case IBD!
|11 weeks 6 days ago||NYR||
For what the Rangers gave up for Yandle you probably were looking at giving up a Sheahan, Mantha/Larkin, and multiple picks. His price was crazy high.

That would be a phone auto correcf
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Rumor||
Rumor was Weiss and Kindle (plus picks) so you would drop $4.9M in Weiss contract and then if the cap expands as expected Phaneauf's contract doesn't seem as bad.

No that guys is a cartoonist version of Ace for sure!
|15 weeks 7 hours ago||I think 30 is a good number.||
I think 30 is a good number. The NBA clock is too quick there isn't enough skill on the floor to get good looks in 16-19 second after crossing mid court. 35 seconds tends to make the game stagnant with a lot of "motion" with no actual attempt to get to the basket.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Disagree||
New coordinators means new systems. Could move team to more spread on offense or from 4-3 to 3-4 on defense. If you are a projected DE in 4-3 scheme but don't think you fit into an outside rusher in a 3-4 that change greatly affects you.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||I think you made the point,||
I think you made the point, other teams did it while legal. The fact they have multiple incidents where they were on the wrong side of the rules gives them little to no slack. From spygate, to manipulating injury reports, to deflategate it just shows the "we are above the rules" mentality.
|16 weeks 15 hours ago||UM-ish||
I see what you're saying now. Thanks for the clarification.
|16 weeks 15 hours ago||Umish?||
UMish? Is there an "s" in Michigan? Seems like a terrible shorthand version
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Former Players||
Many former players have said NE manipulates the injury report. From misreporting how or what a player is injured, to making guys "questionable" when they are clearly out (or completely healthy). It may not be "against the letter of the rule" but it is not acting in good faith.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||I guess I should have||
I guess I should have clarified. Regardless of within "NFL standard" or not, wouldn't there had been a drop in psi? Assuming the balls would have been filled by an equipment guy in the locker room.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Honest question||
I haven't followed this, and this seems like real science so I will ask. If this is true wouldn't have Colts footballs also been affected? If so were Colts balls ever tested?
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Maybe? Could Bo have been||
Maybe? Could Bo have been combining stories? Chuck Long seems to fit everything except "transferred while in college"
|17 weeks 5 days ago||He was from New Mexico and||
He was from New Mexico and also never transferred while in college. So don't think he fits.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Jeff George?||
I believe it was a reference to Jeff George. He fit all the knocks Bo pointed out. Pissed people off, transfered in college (Purdue to Illinois), bounced around NFL, midwest kid, etc.
Edit: George was couple years too young. Vinny sounds right.

This bracket is completely wrong... Who doesn't put the #1 and #2 seeds on opposite sides? Someone needs a better editor.
