|5 days 10 hours ago||Plus when people don't like||
Plus when people don't like the conclusions they call it obvious or biased or a conspiracy.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Yep||
And at any rate, if they found damage in, for example, 20 of 24 players, that's large enough to be significant even with the small sample.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Context...||
Pretty clear from those cautionary quotes that Beilein was not saying he's ready for game action.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||He was pretty clear today|
|11 weeks 3 days ago||So you think||
Beilein should cut his scholly?
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Injuries are not black and white||
Maybe we can withhold judgement and respect Caris' privacy until both coach and player feel it's the proper time to say something detailed to the public.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Job?||
You think he's getting paid?
|13 weeks 4 hours ago||Disagree||
After the first tweet, the horse was out the barn. Shutting the door wasn't going to bring it back.
Even after the first tweet he wasn't straightforward. You could figure it out if you went through his timeline, but that's pretty much trolling in itself.
Expecting everyone else to read between the lines is childish.
|13 weeks 4 hours ago||Video seemed fine to me||
I feel sorry for the dude that made it. There's no way any video was going to live up to what was inferred from his tweeting.
|15 weeks 37 min ago||True, but||
Ian, Miggy, JD, Upton all hit RHP very well. Maybin actually has reverse splits, and Gose will see ABs anyway.
McCann hits RHP poor but Salty will see a good amount of ABs if that continues.
Nick and Iggy are the trouble areas against RHP for 2016, based on 2015.
|20 weeks 5 hours ago||Aguero||
is really the one guy Arsenal would have a difficult time containing. He might be fit for the game too. As his health goes, so goes Man City.
Walcott being fit should really help, as I really like him and Giroud as a counter/outlet when they have be more defensive like they may have to be against Man City.
|20 weeks 5 hours ago||I chose Arsenal almost by process of elimination||
EPL gets most TV coverage here in U.S. so that league was natural.
Man U - was too easy to pick at the time. Basically the Yankees. Never liked Rooney.
Man City - liked them somewhat at the start, but bought whatever they wanted with their oil $$$. Started out as a bit of an underdog, but the $$$ got too crazy. Still love Aguero tho.
Chelsea - boring football/Mourinho + oil $$$$ = easy to hate.
Liverpool - liked them at first too, they had just signed Suarez. But they were often compared to Ohio State in random "which team should you pick articles" and I never got behind them. I don't hate them tho.
Arsenal - Wenger is brilliant and different than just about any coach in sports. And I fell in love watching RVP single handedly keep them in the top 4 that one year before they sold him. They financed their own stadium 15 or so years ago, and this set them back financially just as the era of huge transfer monies set in. So they were an underdog for the title but still had a chance to do things, unlke the other 14-15 teams in the league who would have been too frustrating to get in to. Pleasing team to watch, even if it sometimes borders on soft. And an active online community on reddit that simply brought more info than others.
Also-it's easy to watch other teams as you get into it. For example, I think everyone in the EPL is rooting for Leicester City this year, except when they play my team and especially when they play Chelsea.
|20 weeks 5 hours ago||Hope so re: Gunners||
Kind of odd for OP to take a shot at Arsenal--must be a Supds fan. Gunner fans are kind of laughing at drawing Barca again this morning for the CL (it couldn't be Bayern so it had to be Barcelona) and loving what LC did to Chelski this afternoon. Far better watching another Chelsea loss than being top at some arbitrary date.
I never believe with Arsenal but if they can beat Man City in a week it'll be hard not to! Definite 2 team race.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||He was bobbling the ball||
while he was taking those steps in bounds, unforunately. It's hard to see with that compression but the ball was spinning/sliding around in his hand as the defender is pushing him.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||Nah||
I'm actually right, and I explained why. You just can't be bothered.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||fine.||
bobbled it twice, never had possession til out of bounds.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||Disagreeing with the group, but||
That was not a catch, because he actually bobbles it twice.
It's hard to see on that video, but on the TV replays you could see when he's taking his first several steps, the ball is moving in his stomach. No possession yet, so these first 3 steps he takes well in bounds are irrelevant.
He finally gains control as he's going down and does still have a foot down, but he hits the ground immediately after and completely bobbles the ball out of bounds. At that point, he would need to maintain control to complete the process like any other sideline catch.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||Who cares if it's okay?||
It's hilarious and all true. Horrible job by the coaches, bad move by the player.
There's no need to defend anyone here.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||So what if he gets hurt?||
It's 1 scholarship for 1 year.
I'm not at all comfortable with a depth chart of 1. O'Korn and 2. True/RS Freshmen/Borges recruits.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||Yes,||
that's against the spread. For outright wins they call in the 80-89% win range, they are 65-11 (85%).
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Awesome!||
I remembered these posts in years past and made sure to read this one to get caught up, as I haven't had time to follow the race at all yet. Glad to see Froome isn't necessarily going run away with it, and nice to see Teejay off to a good start!
|44 weeks 3 days ago||From Harbaugh's perspective......||
Michigan is still at the scholarship limit. Pipkins can decide not sign da ting and not transfer and it's still all good with the rules. And, if the coaches aren't going to play him there's no reason not to sign the medical, as someone else gets a paid scholarship.
HOWEVER, one really has to wonder how much the determination that this guy won't play has to do with wanting another player more. Maybe part of the reason they want Pipkins to retire is because they also want Jhonny Williams, for example.
I'm sure it's a bit of both, and knowing Harbaugh I think it's about winning as much as letting Pipkins evaluate his own situation.
|45 weeks 2 days ago||"..."||
your logic is infallible.
|50 weeks 9 hours ago||S-E-C!||
|51 weeks 1 hour ago||eh...||
i doubt there's any rhyme or reason as to what makes the front page lead story, besides the obvious--what people have been clicking on and website algorithms.
I'm pretty sure there's no actual human that decides this.
|51 weeks 3 days ago||Technically...||
I'm sure Urbz "knew."
He "knew" that once he wanted to replace him with someone better, that he would make sure he didn't get cleared.
Nevered bothered to tell the kid he "knew" this, but Urbz "knew." We all knew, really.
|1 year 3 days ago||If you ever travel back in||
If you ever travel back in time, don't step on anything. Because even the slightest change can alter the future in ways you can't imagine
|1 year 3 weeks ago||If there's concerns||
A medical redshirt seems relevant. Rehab and re-evaluate.
It just seems weird that a meniscus injury would defnitively end his sports playing days at such a young age.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||I think it's pretty fine as is.||
The luxury tax is doing enough to keep the Yankees from going totally bonkers. A salary floor would actually be more useful.
I like the current playoff format as well. If you win the division, you get to avoid the 1 game play-in. Makes the long season more meaningful.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||It's a different sport||
It's not as action packed as your more intense sports, nor does it require the concentration level. It's great to have on while you do other stuff in the house or maybe listen to while you start a bonfire or golf or fish or work.
It fits with the idea of the lazy summer.
