Peppers at 10, which seems low.

kind of responding to both. I just hear a lot of people talk about him like he is the very essence of evil and I don't know why that is. He was not a bright, shining perfect role model and had some notable issues, but I don't get why he is targeted as such a bad dude all the time. Outside of competition on the basketball floor, I have never seen the guy disrespect anybody or even be short with reporters, media, etc. I don't get the hate.
|20 hours 13 min ago||I don't||
own one piece of Jumpman apparel and won't start now. I have two kids draining my pocket book and can't afford all that. I just don't really have any reason to believe that he is a bad person. I certainly don't have any evidence that his dad got killed because of a gambling debt, which is pretty much the biggest bullshit rumor taken for truth out there today.

am having serious trouble getting into this tournament. I don't find anything particularly compelling about Baltusrol and The Open Championship was like yesterday. The Olympics really doing a number on the PGA this year.
|20 hours 52 min ago||No,||
that is pretty much how it looks in Southeast Michigan as well.

if he can just like, ya know, win.
He needs to really excel in another area of the game to make up for his relative pedestrian length. As of right now, he just doesn't do anything all that exceptional that allows him to really hang with the big guns. He hits it about as far as Speith, but Speith might be the best putter I have ever seen. I really like Fowler but I fear he is going to be a relatively short lived flash in the pan at this point.

never really start "adulting" in your own mind. One day hot girls just start calling you "sir" and you find youself watching Criminal Minds and American Idol auditions. it just kind of happens.
|21 hours 21 min ago||Gotcha,||
thanks for the clarification.

think he is going with "This post will have to be deleted because people will say bad things about police but let's see what those punks do the next time they are in danger" but I really have no clue.
Or it could be the exact opposite of that but then the 911 reference at the end is peculiar. I think that post may have been born of early Friday intoxication.
|21 hours 27 min ago||Huh?||
|21 hours 31 min ago||Yes-||
And it is almost always a strict liability offense (offender does not need to know of the actual age of the victim for it to be a crime). This seriously makes absolutely no sense and has peaked my interest enough to read up on the history of this law/ruling.
|21 hours 33 min ago||Of||
course. To think of a culture in which this wasn't allowed?!
|21 hours 40 min ago||I||
am also not a fan, at all. But it is then that I realize how many "eras" have past since how I choose to wear my hat was at all relevant. That moment when you realize that you are not a kid anymore. Turns out it is not a moment at all but every single second of your life after the age of 25. :(
|21 hours 41 min ago||Fowler||
pulls it off. He is very truly the only one.
|21 hours 46 min ago||Obligatory-||
Jumpman on a football coaches hat!?!? Outrageous! Just wrong.
|22 hours 18 min ago||Well,||
he was an extremely competitive person, but he was never amatuerish in defeat(contrast with Zeke). He was always available to the media and gave contrite, actual answers to questions. He remained loyal to one franchise for nearly his entire (effective) playing career and commanded fierce loyalty from his teammates (whom he always defended). He had good relationships with many other players including many he played against. If by "not gracious" you mean he would punch Reggie Miller, Dennis Rodman, Charles Smith, Xavier McDaniel et. al. in the face if they asked for it, I agree, but I always viewed that as a breath of fresh air.
Yeah, he used his leverage to keep Isiah off the Dream Team, but frankly, Isiah was kind of dick who was far less liked and/or admired by other players than Jordan was. Being a "bad boy" had its consequences and that was one of them. Perhaps he should have shook hands instead of ducking and running after Game 4 and he would have made the trip to Barcelona.

was, but it was also the home uniform. I don't think the home uniform should ever be modified in any way. I am just calling for some variety on the road.
|23 hours 28 min ago||Just||
so, so bad.
|23 hours 54 min ago||I don't||
get this. I thought his Hall of Fame speech was misguided. Aside from that, I don't understand why many people have so much of a problem with him. I mean, I get it, he had some issues. He clearly had a gambling problem and turned out to be (gasp) a famous NBA basketball player who was not entirely faithful to his wife.
But what annoys you specifically? He is well educated, well spoken, often gracious, has never had any issues with the law, avoids political involvement like the plague, never really seeks attention (contrast with Barkley or Shaq) and largely stays completely out of the news in every regard. What is it about him that you don't like?
|1 day 6 min ago||Realizing your sarcasm,||
I have to say that I don't think it would be entirely bad to have white, maize, and blue pants available for road games. I think the home uniforms should remain a constant, but I think varying the colors on the bottom for road games would be kind of cool (i.e. FSU in the 90s with gold, red, and white). I think our road uniforms have undergone enough tinkering that it would not be too much of a "break with tradition" to do that.

wore maize. The whites were in the 70s. I like the whites better, but don't understand why they can't be interchangeable.
|1 day 27 min ago||So||
what? They signed off on them, fine, but nearly every signle alternate uniform we had caused spontaneous eye bleeding and they turned maize into "hot yellow." I said above, the Jumpman symbol looks a little odd, but you guys really think these uniforms are awful(!), terrible(!), cannot stand them? I guess I don't know what you want/expected or how you can see these as that bad.
Somebody put up the Outback Bowl uniforms from the SC game if you want to be reminded about BAD.
|1 day 34 min ago||I'm||
wondering if that is actually Dennis Norfleet posing in those uniforms.
|1 day 44 min ago||Let's||
not get carried away here. Adidas turned us into a clown show for close to ten years and we collectively pined for change. These are not perfect as I have opined above but they look good. They are nice, crisp uniforms with a classic feel (aside from the logo). It could be a lot worse, and in fact has been for a number of years.
|1 day 46 min ago||I didn't||
see it at first either, but once you notice it the change is very striking.
|1 day 49 min ago||As somebody||
who has been an avid supporter of the move to Jumpman, I do have to confess that the logo on the uniform looks a little bit stranger than I envisioned in my head. Perhaps it is because I expected only one logo, on the pants or the jersey, but not on both. I don't hate them and the uniforms themselves look excellent, but we do kind of look like the University of Michael Jordon more than I expected.

the players walking by, just casually looking down at a fallen comrade getting that thing.

stop laughing right now.
I need a legit explanation from a soccer person on this. I can't tell if the smoke/mist is what is causing the discomfort or if it is trying to relieve it. Is the "sprayer" a good samaritan or he is committing some type of really bizarre assault on an opponent.
That is a very unsettling image.

really. The issue is that we schedule teams that actively work against our RPI. We have to fill the schedule with some "cupcakes" but it is counter-productive and frankly irrational to have your cupcakes be "no-win" scenarios. If you schedule teams that are around 100-150, you stand a slightly higher chance of being upset but even that is less damaging than playing some of teams we schedule.
It is a good non-conference schedule in terms of some of the matchups, but it is again the kind of non-conference schedule that can work against you if you find yourself near the bubble.

is a certain L. We don't fair well against teams with obnoxiously long acronyms.

is doing something wrong, though, because this is America and DOOOOOOM. You always got to remember that.
