Wouldn't Cal be the Kings' 4th coach within one year? Vivek sure seems to have his hands in everything... too bad for Nik. That franchise just seems like a cluster

Something that could complicate this - coaching changes and position switches. Do you have any data about how the switch to Zone blocking affected those in 2005/06? Or if people were able to move "up" the chart by switching to Guard/Tackle/Etc? If Mason Cole is an OK LT as a true freshman, where's his ceiling at Guard if he's moving there?

Smart football IQ is a benefit at every position, especially safety.
Also, I am very proudly "Not Peppers Athletic".

Keep your head up. I got cheated on and dumped by a girlfriend of about 3.5 years, seemingly out of no where. In hindsight it was one of the best things to ever happen to me. Wouldn't be who I am today (or with my awesome wife) without it.
As the zen master says, this too shall pass.

If your QB plays basketball it could help them understand passing windows - I think it was Donovan McNabb who liked to play bball with his WRs so that he could see where they were more comfortable catching. Same with baseball - you can't always have the same arm angle in football, so having practice at making throws when uncomfortable can't hurt

Makes sense for sure. Playing dodgeball also lets Harbaugh gage competetiveness, evasiveness, etc. that won't come out in normal passing drills.
|6 days 3 hours ago||Education > Kicking||
In the US there are 32 jobs for professional place kickers. 32 jobs for punters. Specialists would be well served to make sure that - even more so than other athletes - they are ready to "go pro in something other than sports"

as a Bears fan who likes Cutler (he's had shit to deal with as coaches, forever. And a garbage OL except for that one time), I have no doubt that he'd love to play dodgeball with a bunch of Bears fans and would use his cannon arm to injure many of them.
I love Chicago sports, and most of the time the fans, but they really don't know when to stop. I mean, half of them still want Corey Crawford run out of town. I wonder if I'm the only one who remembers the list of QBs before Cutler... we have a 7! There aren't 10s out there!

If dodgeball with a bunch of QBs isn't an awesome, outside the box way to get kids to remember your camp, I don't know what it is. That's a great way to get the competition flowing

Zach Hyman was traded to Toronto. Dylan Larkin will play for the Wings (most likely in GR)

That was my initial thought too, but with SVG the Pistons are far less of a clownshow than the Knicks.
I mean, it's all relative.
|1 week 4 days ago||I don't disagree with you in||
I don't disagree with you in the big picture, but these are jobs that Kansas (!!) is paying $45,000 for. Texas is paying just over half of their next "cheapest" "competitor". While the market will make entry level jobs low-paying due to supply and demand, being competitive is important too. The whole rest of the conference pays this position almost twice as much.
|1 week 4 days ago||Totally agree||
Was this guy's mandate from the University President to make/save every $ possible? or is he just an asshole?
|1 week 4 days ago||Wow||
Score one for Brandon, at least assistant salaries went up. Reducing the ticket allotment and even trying to charge staff for meals (after a quota) is just plain penny pinching. Employers nickel-and-diming employees never ends well. What is this guy hoping to accomplish other than pissing off his employees? There's no BOD to give him a raise after the stock inches up...

I mean, one good example is Jay Z - dude's now in his 40s and a dad. It's a lot harder to be rapping about selling weed, bitches, etc. as a 40 year old dad than it was as a 27 year old.
I think there's also a level of acceptability that no longer makes rappers "cool' rappers. If Ice Cube dropped a great album, wouldn't he still be the guy from the Coors Light ads and "Are we there yet"? Once rap songs (and their artists) go mainstream and grow up, some of that edge is gone.

I mean, filtering out all types of blows sounds great but the problem with a new helmet isn't just that it has to filter blows, but are they going to have a composite material that works for all kinds of stuff? 350lb linemen and 180lb CBs? different angles, speeds, rebounds/hitting the turf, etc? Sounds like a huge engineering problem to me.
Similarly, the helmet has to look "cool" enough. There are already helmets that work a lot better than what 99% of players wear, they just don't want to look like this:

That's a lot of beef. Now if I were the #1 DT prospect in the country I might think that practicing against that every day would make me better...

Now imagine if Brandon owned the team, made sure home games weren't televised, etc. and couldn't get fired. Wirtz was a TERRIBLE owner.
Yes, there was a one year dip in attendance at Michigan Stadium. Imagine a couple of decades of Dave Brandon and we'll be close to where the Blackhawks were under Wirtz.
|2 weeks 4 hours ago||Yep||
Not like those Lions fans (with 8 home games to go to, rather than 41) had a recent 25% dip in attendance
Or how about those Pistons fans, didn't they lead the league in attendance for a few years?
So sorry that people like good teams. It's not like that's an exact reason for why there are more Michigan fans than MSU fans or any other topic on this board...
|2 weeks 4 hours ago||On "Blackhawks fans deserving nothing"||
As a Blackhawks fan I've got a parallel for you - the fucking Detroit Lions. Let's talk about Bill Wirtz. In terms of saying that hockey didn't exist here before 2008 - look at the damn owner. The Blackhawks home games were NOT ALLOWED ON TV because the owner thought that fans wouldn't come to the games. Fans were bled dry. For every Lions fan with a paper bag on their head, imagine if the owner regularly was saying "fuck you" to that exact person.
Yeah, the team was awful and started winning, but realize what previous ownership did to the franchise. If you have other thoughts on how the Hawks are awful, see my above post.
