|3 weeks 4 days ago||Adidas does not stand for that||
Adidas a German company wouldn't use the word soccer. It's an urban myth that makes no sense. The founder was Adolph Dassler. Adi was his nickname and in combination with his last name you get Adidas.
Edited: Sorry for being the 4th response.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Different Standards?||
I think it's fair to have different standards for different things. NC is a US state and the NBA should be able to hold them to a higher standard. I don't see why we can't add some complexity to real life. Ideally, China would be a beacon for freedom and democratization. They aren't. Can I be disappointed with them? Sure. But can't I also ask more from a State that's been a part of a democracy since 1789 (or 1868)?
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Double Post||
So important I wrote it twice
|6 weeks 4 days ago||T-Shirt Idea||
You know when you were in elementary school and all the kids drew a picture and they made it a class shirt? Can we please make a shirt like that but with the wolverine drawings and the name below?
I think it'd be hilarious.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||I DVR sports||
Can start a football game around halftime and can catch up by the end of the 4th quarter. Same with hockey. Hate ads and how they kill the flow of games. If I can catch up to the live stream by the end of a game AND save 90 minutes, that's worth the anxiety of missing a kickoff.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||BPL is fine||
There is a non-English team in the league so calling it the EPL is kinda weird.
There's a remote chance Cardiff come up again so EPL/BPL who cares?
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Two years ago they should have won the league||
Don't know how they are on the rise now. I love Klopp but Liverpool have 2 elite players and one of them is always injured. I think Liverpool won't likely finish any higher next season with Chelsea returning to form.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||It wasn't like he didn't deserve being fired||
His off-field antics definitely justified his firing.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||He's also a racist||
Kind of kills the underdog story when you're caught on tape using racial slurs. This isn't a guy to root for.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||They are unpaid||
They get benefits but no salary therefore they are unpaid labor.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||So what? That's just a single factor.||
So more injuries today means pitch counts don't work? Limiting pitch counts would be flawed only if high pitch counts were the sole causation of injuries. Today pitchers might be pitching heavier work loads earlier in life (like pre-teen years) and that shows up in injuries down the road. They could also be throwing harder every pitch. If you have to pitch 9 innings in two days you aren't going to be throwing hard late into the game so it'd be dumb to throw 95+ in the 7th, 8th, 9th inning like you see some starters do. Pitchers might throw more sliders/curves that torque the arm differently making it more likely to be injured. Pittchers might be stronger (to throw faster) and that means they put more wear and tear on the shoulder when they go against their arm strength by rotating the shoulder (slurves do this). You are fighting against a stronger resistance force than less players that didn't do weights 20-30 years ago. Also, Tommy John used to a much more serious surgery so more players may have been steered away from surgery to things like physical therapy.
All in all, pitch counts might be limiting injuries but other factors are overwhelming the benefit pitch count limits bring.
|27 weeks 5 hours ago||Can they just starting giving technicals for it?||
Call it taunting or some other name. Just get it out of the game. It's so overused and so stupid. If you do it once a game that's fine but Sparty does it 15 times a half.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Or maybe this offer just was extended to him||
And he had no idea that it was a possibility at signing day? Signing day was the 3rd and this is two weeks later. Maybe Dallas just decided on him this week?
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Not flimsy||
Johnson HOPES he'll make it in after a prep year. He still might not.
Murphy might have decided not to wait for the spring to sign a LOI. He might want to know where he's going now.
|28 weeks 4 days ago||I think putting sports into a larger context is okay||
I think this podcast does a good job of showing the effects of sports into the world we live in, including yes politics and social issues.
To me that makes this post okay.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Onwenu||
Does anyone else see Larry Warford when they look at Onwenu? Both are big guards that still have nimble feet and can move and pull.
Can you imagine pulling him? I feel bad for the LB or S that rushes down and find themselves staring at a 330 guard who's hauling ass.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Start impeachment proceedings for Jim Delany||
Then kick out Rutgers for cause.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||What about Norm Bazin?||
What he did at UMass Lowell is amazing. His first three years there he went to the NCAA tourney which is amazing considering they had won 5 games (and lost 24) the year before he was hired
|31 weeks 1 day ago||Drew Sharp may indeed write the exact same article tomorrow.||
Like literally the same article.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Pride and Prejudice (remake)||
I read this book in AP English and we recieved extra points for seeing the movie and writing a paper on the differences between the book and the movie. I made a date night thinking the movie would suck for me but my gf would like it because it was girly or whatever (High School logic). However, I liked it a lot. I'm a huge Keira Knightly fan so maybe that's why but I liked the movie.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Who's coaching the defense?||
Is it Billy Powers? If this defense was average we'd be an elite team this year. The scoring is insane. I'm not too worried when we're down a couple of goals and have more than 5 minutes left on the clock.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Can't go down 11-0||
That's just unacceptable in a big game. I don't know how a team can come out so flat so often. After that though, the game looked good. I liked all the back door cutting. We need to do that more often if teams are going to extend their defense to the 3 point line.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||College Baseball?||
College baseball is the EXACT opposite though. Nobody in the B1G cares about college baseball but it's a huge thing in the SEC. The pre-season NCAA rankings have Florida (#1), Vandy (#3), Texas A&M (#5), LSU (#7), Miss St (#11), and Arkansas (#25). The B1G has one team (Michigan, #24). There's also only 1 PAC-12 team (UCLA, #10).
The College World Series is on ESPN non-stop in the spring for a reason.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||I think Drew Sharp is lurking on this board...||
|33 weeks 1 day ago||Not so fast...||
Have you seen Rutgers or the B1G West recently?
|38 weeks 4 days ago||Jackson should get promoted||
Let Zordich take over the safety job by himself and hire a new LB coach.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||No that's NHL specific||
We should have a "Pick a Card" of justice for the Big 10.
|39 weeks 5 days ago||Just curious||
Why is Mullen not a USC candidate? After the last two coaches full of bravado and a combined 40-21 record (Sark went 12-6 and Kiffin went 28-15), Mullen might be a great pic. USC can recruit by itself, Mullen can develop talent, and has a solid record in a tough conference.
|39 weeks 5 days ago||I'm skeptical of it happening||
I'm just using that term because Maryland fans seem to think that's happening. I'm fairly skeptical myself. I think Oregon in a weaker Pac-10 was able to build up (as you mentioned) before Kelly. Maryland has not had that. They're bad right now and that's with a very weak PSU and Michigan not at 100% yet. When Michigan comes online fully, Maryland would have to develop with 3 elite teams in their division, which is more than Oregon faced in their conference.
|39 weeks 5 days ago||Yes||
But maybe the contract he signed with Miss St (last year?) prevents him from jumping to a SEC team. That's something I'd have put in place if I was their AD.
If I'm Mullen, short of UA dropping millions to make Maryland "Oregon 2.0", I'd rather jump to a place like USC or Miami. Both can be elite programs with good coaching and I think USC might be dying for someone without off-field issues for the job.
