|1 day 9 hours ago||I don't think that anyone can||
I don't think that anyone can be ruled out, especially when dealing with type A personalities competing against other type A personalities on a daily basis. I look at a case like Verlander or Roy Halladay and wonder if the drop off in performance (from elite to run of the mill) is not due to a positive test that was never made public, because there was no second positive test. I don't think it diminishes their accomplishments since such a large portion of the league was using, but I don't think that it makes their accomplishments any better either. Did you think Andy Pettite was using PED's?
|1 day 9 hours ago||Steroid Era||
So you are just going to assume that only hitters were juicing? The guys on the bump were doing every bit as much as the rest of them.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I love my career.||
I sell propane and propane accessories. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I always liked to think that if I hadn't broke my ankle back in '83, maybe I would have played for the Cowboys, but then I realize that Strickland Propane will always be the place for me.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Sprints||
Sprint Cars on a dirt track. Favorite racer of all time is Bill Elliott. Second is Dick Trickle for obvious reasons.
|20 weeks 6 hours ago||My usual go to||
Is a bottle opener. But you can always use a lighter, or any of the other things MacGyver types use to open those bottles.
|21 weeks 4 hours ago||Ya don't say?||
|22 weeks 6 days ago||Huh?||
It's like the world's most poorly timed April Fool's Day joke ever.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||DeWeaver?||
Is this why Messiah de-committed? I think that with Harbaugh, he could make any player a good quarterback, I tell ya what. Except for probably Bobby, that boy ain't right. Now Joseph on the other hand...
|26 weeks 4 days ago||Fool me once....||
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me five times and I would begin to think maybe I was the problem. That or my doctor.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||Who knew?||
You must drive like my great grandmother. Denver is a two hour drive from Laramie, Salt Lake City is a 7 hour drive from Laramie, you can enjoy the outdoors in peace, and there are no big pimply a-holes like you to bug the locals. Matter of fact, when I retire from Strickland, I might just move to a place like Laramie. Almost forgot about the water.... It's great there!
|29 weeks 6 days ago||I'm so excited...||
"I'm so excited for the first week of winter conditioning, to get that started. Let's find out exactly what our intent is."
Anybody else go from 6:00 to Midnight on that one? There is a plan, a process, and now a leader to ensure it is ruthlessly implemented. We are in good hands again.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||A head coach||
A head coach is typically minded one way or another (offense or defense). The biggest issue I believe you are overlooking is his leadership. His determination. All reasons he has turned around three programs (two of which were historically bad football wise) and would most likely win here. No one is claiming an inherent schematic advantage, just the hope that we will actually start to "out-physical" teams instead of just talking about it.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Best Harbaugh thread yet,||
Best Harbaugh thread yet, followed by the worst. What the fuck was that man?
|31 weeks 5 days ago||IBD||
|31 weeks 5 days ago||?||
First it was your gut and now it is in your bones...
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Also,||
At least this is worthy of a new thread. Good insight.
Can we get some monkey rodeo?
|31 weeks 5 days ago||WTF?||
You even got the "old saying" wrong!
|36 weeks 9 hours ago||You forgot one name.||
Bill Cowher is the S&C coach.
|37 weeks 2 hours ago||Thank you||
For your apology. It will be taken into consideration.

Malibu's Most Wanted
|39 weeks 1 day ago||He still has one advantage.||
He can hear what a good team sounds like.
|39 weeks 1 day ago||Not for lack of trying?||
This is Michigan Fergodsakes.The job requires more effort than what has been put in, obviously. So yes, it has been for a lack of trying. Folksy football coach can't coach football. Hoke has been the loudest about "expectation", and they have not been met (outside of great practices), so we will stomp wherever we please.
|41 weeks 4 days ago||Tricky situation.||
The coordinators see the team practice all week from field level, yet they watch the film of opposing defenses from a press-box vantage point. Aesthetically, it would seem that the view from the box would give you a much broader view of the game, and making it easier to pick up tendencies, coverages, weaknesses, etc. and exploit them. Forest for the trees argument. However, if the coaches, who are WELL into their coaching careers at this point and thus, presumably well versed (though this season is becoming a contradiction to this point) in all facets of their job see the game all week at field level, wouldn't you want that same experience on Saturdays? Just my two cents, now onto reality.
|44 weeks 2 days ago||Still being a dick||
At 15? Maybe the man is in medical school, or perhaps the traditional route was not suitable and that is why he has to study. Regardless, wtf is the OP talking about?
|51 weeks 15 hours ago||Let me take this as an opportunity...||
To warn everyone here about the dangers of cooking with charcoal. Here at Strickland Propane, we say, "Taste the meat, not the heat." That is because propane is a clean-burning, odorless and tasteless gas. Enjoy the rest of your summer, and remember to step away from that bag of Kingsford if you truly want to enjoy that cut of meat.

That is BB. 3/4 sleeves would have made it more obvious.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||You were right.||
Definitely Betty white. Assuming it was a bad joke like you said. My mind told me it was Marge Schott, but upon closer inspection, it is definitely Betty White.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||That is fucked up,||
and racist too.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Exhibition?||
Saw no mention on an exhibition game. Just pointing out that a high elevation does not make a game unsafe.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Wyoming||
The Wyoming Cowboys play home games at the same elevation.
