|6 weeks 4 days ago||Catchers and pitchers have a||
Catchers and pitchers have a grueling job and the season is 162 games long, almost twice as long as the NBA. Getting hit by pitches, running full speed and diving into the ground, or sliding into a base/catcher...catching cleats if your the SS or 2B trying to turn a double....I'd still go with MLB as being more grueling.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Not saying playing basketball||
Not saying playing basketball is easy, at all, but I think it's probably the least hard on your body of the major sports. So I get being tired, but the way they phrase it, "stretched beyond his physical limits" is melodramatic.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||One of those people is Sam||
One of those people is Sam Webb, so...yeah, that's evidence in my book, at least as far as "recruiting evidence" goes.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||If you don't think those||
If you don't think those companies would fleece you given the opportunity you must not be paying attention to Comcast et al. But yes on your general point, most people will pay for the convenience, higher quality picture, and the idea of a clean conscience.
|13 weeks 1 hour ago||Well...Bye..||
He was the most frequent but it was at least 95% someone else's story he was posting to the board or comments from his "coach buddy," an unnamed...former.. high school FB... assistant coach...whose opinion GBW readers were supposed to place importance on re: various subjects from recruiting to schematic details.
In addition to breaking no new content whatsoever, he's been known to personally insult people who express contrarion opinions. Personally, I'm not a fan, and I think this is actually addition by subtraction, and the site gets an instant credibility bump by his absence going forward.

You mean you don't think Bruce is suddenly a "hero" because he wears women's clothes and talks about it?
|14 weeks 2 hours ago||Unfortunately I've seen the||
Unfortunately I've seen the same. Of course its recruiting and anything can change but there seems to be a very tall mountain to climb in this recruitment
|14 weeks 3 hours ago||From who?||

The Bourne series, thanks roughneck

Good call, I knew i was forgetting something
|15 weeks 2 days ago||The Godfather Diehard(though||
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Or accidently hit the||
Or accidently hit the 4...yikes. I still think he's a late 1st to mid 2nd pick though.
|25 weeks 23 hours ago||No, he didn't. He "selected"||
No, he didn't. He "selected" UCLA but did not sign. Now their DC is headed to the NFL and he's opened things up again.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Have to wonder if they're||
Have to wonder if they're just trying to muddie the water and keep him from M, not that they wouldn't actually take him
|25 weeks 2 days ago||Ohio state received a waiver||
Ohio state received a waiver to basically have two coaching staffs at one time, and had a whole extra month compared to when Harbaugh took over..
|26 weeks 6 days ago||"It's a dead tie right now"||
"It's a dead tie right now" ...direct quote from Arnette in the article.
|28 weeks 1 hour ago||He's always had to return to||
He's always had to return to Stanford to finish his undergrad. He won't finish that until the end of the semester
|28 weeks 6 days ago||Sam said Wheatley was not||
Sam said Wheatley was not offered additional title other than RB coach att
|29 weeks 1 day ago||Sam has never denied that||
Sam has never denied that Wheatley is likely to be on the staff, quite the opposite, actually. He did deny the report that it was a "done deal" at Red Robin last night.
Edit: I basically repeated what Don said without having read it, my bad. Need to read all replies before replying.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||In his defense, there were||
In his defense, there were TWO Bama WRs open for the TD. A better throw is complete to the intended WR, and there was a backside post that was had a 10 yard radius with no deffenders around him.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||And Sam Webb and JUB||
And Sam Webb and JUB responded by saying "not likely" and "very not likely," respectively.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Opinions of people change, of||
Opinions of people change, of course, but there should be a distinction between that and reporting of "facts" in the present, i.e. "Michigan left meeting with impression JH is not interested in returning to college" or "Jim rebuffed Michigan's offer"
|31 weeks 3 days ago||HARBAUGH||
|31 weeks 3 days ago||They won't be moving to LA||
They won't be moving to LA this year, but there was also talk of them moving to San Antonio.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||If they fire him, they would||
If they fire him, they would be on the hook for paying him the last year of his contract.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Depends on if Julio goes, if||
Depends on if Julio goes, if not Douglass. Even if Julio goes I suspect Douglass will play a bigger role than usual
|31 weeks 4 days ago||CJ and Lafell.....Edelman is||
CJ and Lafell.....Edelman is out, Lafell should see more targets
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Lynch and forsett||
Lynch and forsett
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Demarco has never missed goal||
Demarco has never missed goal line touches, so as long as he can go that shouldn't be a problem, other than bad luck. I'm starting him too
