|5 weeks 6 days ago||A basketball court is only 28||
A basketball court is only 28 yards long...considering most NFL QBs can hit a moving target on the money at that distance (think combine board bullseye) I would assume the full court, stationary throw is easier.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I was able to do this maybe||
I was able to do this maybe 3/10 times in high school and I sucked. For a professional to put a ball in a one foot, stationary, window after a bit of practice isn't terribly impressive. I would guess that every QB in the league, starter or not, could sink that throw with a few attempts.

Ah, but they are D1...just not BCS division.

#1 being Wildcats? Other guess being Bulldogs.

I-form or pistol near twins right with Gallon/Funchess. They run hi/lo outs. Play action stretch off left tackle, but Fitz continues out into the wheel route.
No idea if this works or is even a thing.

Anyone have a pair they would want to trade? Mine are sec 11 row 8 on the aisle.

I've used the tunein radio app to stream audio of basketball games before.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||In theory, all contact sports||
In theory, all contact sports would have the issue to one degree or another. But what I'm saying is the devastating and sometimes literally crippling hits are when someone leaves their feet, uses their body as a projectile, and spears someone helmet to helmet.
In my entirely unprofessional opinion if you take away the helmet, stabalizing collars, and shoulder/chest padding, make high tackles a penalty, someone isn't going to be a human missile at someone's head. They're not going to bust their face open, be out 3 games, and go get carted off for 120 stitches for any 'ooh's and ahh's' or to save a yard here or there.
Will the issue still arise from time to time? Sure. But will we have a decreased number people with severe injury from whiplash, paralysis, brain damage, etc.? Maybe. But at this point, I think it's worth exploring.
Many athletes have come out to say the reason they go all out, all the time, is that the immediate pain factor isn't there with today's equipment. The problem is that internal damage can and does still arise and be prevalent over time.
Just my two cents that probably isn't even worth as much.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||Honestly, the best way may be||
Honestly, the best way may be to remove padding. The hits in football are much more violent and at high speeds due to the protective nature of the "uniform". Rugby doesn't have this issue because players have to be conscious about preventing injury instead of going 110% and relying on advanced gear.

I don't know about you but my pet does not own a spade.
|49 weeks 4 days ago||My best guess would be right||
My best guess would be right around a quarter million? No idea...this tourney has a rich purse.
Edit: Based on last year, dropping from a potential 1st to 8th lost him about $1.5 million dollars.
|49 weeks 4 days ago||My thoughts exactly. It was||
My thoughts exactly. It was his ego that had him tee it up again instead of the drop zone. With today's pin placement, you have a lot more green to work with vs yesterdays.
At this point he's just playing for cash.
|49 weeks 4 days ago||Hahahahaha Sergio.||
|49 weeks 4 days ago||Well, looks like Maggert will||
Well, looks like Maggert will fall off of the -12 line
EDIT: Probably dropping to -10 as his 3rd shot is a long ways from the hole.
|49 weeks 4 days ago||Haha yeah, thing definitely||
Haha yeah, things definitely changed...he was playing really well on the front 9.
|49 weeks 4 days ago||Wow Tiger choked on that||
Wow Tiger choked on that hole...
|49 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, he isn't separating||
Yeah, he isn't separating from the field like the Tiger in years past. However, supposedly he's better on the back nine of this course than the front so it's probably his to lose at this point...

Just saw the email for ND tickets! Does anyone know if you'll be able to choose your seats? Not sure how many of you have gone through the process so far.

Sprint the final 90 feet and do a head first slide.

Zeller said so.

Did anyone just catch Denard's vert? Couldn't get sound but he looked disappointed.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Well Austin just ran a 4.25||
Well Austin just ran a 4.25 (hand timed) on first attempt. That's pretty good...might be enough for a shoe deal.
EDIT: Goodwin matched him at 4.25

I think he has potential as a Chris Johnson type tailback. Assuming he wows the scouts at the combines, he should put on 15lbs of muscle. He has a chance as a Percy Harvin type if he can prove his hands are adequate, however I don't see him being drafted as a KR/PR considering he has never done that in a game at the NCAA level.

You are not smart.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Because a sack would||
Because a sack would effectively end the game or create a Hail Mary scenario. That and not blitzing doesn't guarantee they don't get enough yards for the game winning FG. The blitz sack was close on the previous two plays. It was just a hell of a throw in the nick of time.

And if memory serves, Kraft owns the MLS team in Boston as well.
