the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

Speaking of Peppers, he ran a 10.77 second 100 meter dash recently. For comparison, Denard ran a 10.44.

Might I ask why that would be embarrasing?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||One small correction, he's||
One small correction, he's not the consensus number two across all sites. In fact, all sites don't even have a consensus number one.

Yeah, it's not an app. Any android or iPhone should come standard with it, to go along with the keyboard.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yes he can, a lot worse. I||
Yes he can, a lot worse. I love Denard, but there's no way. I don't think some people understand just how bad Denard would be as an NFL QB.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||Jags drafted Ace Sanders||
Jags drafted Ace Sanders right before. Insanely happy for Denard, but Ace has a leg up on Denard already. Unless they choose to use Denard as a RB instead of slot guy. Ace will probably be the kick returner and punt returner. Hopefully Denard can get that other returner spot and find a role in Jacksonville. Awesome that he's back in his home state.
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||Obviously not. I was||
Obviously not. I was following the Lions free agency and cap space for a while, but I now have no clue what it looks like or what it would look like next year when they need to re-sign him. If Stafford really wants to win though, he'd take a cut like Brady and still get paid well, yet leave some room to get a guy like Albert.
Edit: According to NFL.com, the Lions have $7 million in cap space. Jahvid Best is still taking up $2 million in space. Stafford is a $20 million cap hit this year. You cut Best, talk Stafford into fixing his deal and then you've got enough space for the rookies and Albert's $9 million hit. Even better, you could re-negotiate with Albert to where he would not cost you $9 million this year and give him a better deal. If Stafford would just adjust some, Albert could easily be a Detroit Lion.

I imagine he'll be taken in the next two rounds.
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||I was so-so on the Lions||
I was so-so on the Lions draft until they got Larry in the third. He's a very earlier second round talent, and will be a starter from day one in my opinion. Great way to get some value in the third.
What I would love to see the Lions do is trade their second round pick in 2014 for Albert from the Chiefs. Then they've got Larry, Riley, Albert, and they could still pick-up a guy like Barret Jones. Does anyone know if the Lions would have the cap space to get Albert from the Chiefs? He's worth a 2nd round pick in 2014, which is what they Chiefs want, to protect Stafford's blind side.

Bell picked before Lacy...interesting for sure. Steelers usually draft pretty well too.

Any Eagles fans out there have to be pretty happy with the way they've drafted so far.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah it looks like he has a||
Yeah it looks like he has a legit 40 time. Again, thanks for the info. I wasn't being sarcastic or anything in my reply. Just not the guy I expected the Lions to take, but sounds like he was a solid choice.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks for the honest reply.||
Thanks for the honest reply. I seriously had no idea, and I hadn't heard much about this guy. Defense definitely needed help! Hopefully they go with a lineman in the third, unless someone drops that fills another position of need.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Did the Lions just draft a||
Did the Lions just draft a guy who should have gone in the 3rd round at best, at the beginning of the second round?
|5 weeks 5 hours ago||Couple of thoughts from a guy||
Couple of thoughts from a guy who doesn't really know a lot. Drake Johnson looks like a legit starter, tough guy to bring down. Hayes seems bad at blocking at this point or maybe it was just the one block. He certainly doesn't look like Vince out there. James Ross is a man, possibly THE man.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||This, pretty much exactly||
This, pretty much exactly what I was going to say. That's just the big ones, but you can include the phantom second call on Trey Burke. Those changed the game for sure.
|6 weeks 4 hours ago||Jordan Morgan is my favorite||
Jordan Morgan is my favorite player this game. Huge charge taken at the end and a sick throw down to end the game.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Or it could be that Steve and||
Or it could be that Steve and Ed are very good friends, who also wrote a book together a while back. It certainly helps them with Trevon, but I doubt that's the only reason. Steve and Ed have known each other for a very long time, not to mention Ed really has made Park Tudor a very good basketball program.

|6 weeks 5 days ago||This is exactly right. Donnal||
This is exactly right. Donnal is literally the perfect 4 for JB's system, but I was talking to a friend of mine who is an IU fan, and I told him Donnal will start next year. Then I started thinking about it and realized there's no way Donnal starts. It'll be McGary, GRIII, Stauskas, Hardaway, Walton most likely.
Even if Hardaway leaves, which he won't, Stauskas will move to the 2 and Irvin will become the 3, because he's lights out good. Now I will say this, against teams with legit bigs Donnal may end up starting because he's got really good size for the 4 next to McGary. He's also a true stretch 4, so he'll be a match-up problem for a lot of teams.
But either way the team next year is going to have a lot to work with. McGary, GRIII, Stauskas, Hardaway, and Walton all starting. Not to mention then you've got Mr. Basketball from Indiana, who's played in the same area as GRIII and Gary Harris, and he looks better than both. Donnal who is a perfect fit at the 4, and is a very good player in his own right. Then, Spike who may not score in loads, but can be insanely valuable in certain situations, as this tournament has shown.
That makes this team already very, very deep. I haven't even mentioned Caris, who is a very good defender, and hopefully he'll develop a good shot. So, in my opinion, I don't think it's ideal to bring another guy in this year. Especially when Michigan won't need anyone else. I personally would rather use it for 2014, to bring in a better player, rather than reaching for someone in this class.

McGary with 25 and 14 with 3 assists and a steal. Against one of the better big man defenders in college basketball.

If you mean Bo Scar(rest of his name I won't even try to type), he's coming in May.

Oladipo, for being so hyped, seems to be getting blown by/scored on a lot in the tournament. Just throwing that out there.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Yes!||
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I don't know about that. IU||
I don't know about that. IU football is definitely looking up, and I know it's probably impossible to believe, but I don't think they'll be the lauging stock anymore after this season. Not necessarily saying this season will be great, but the seasons after. They're really starting to come together and Wilson knows what he's doing. He's also brought in some very good recruits on defense, but they haven't all arrived yet.

Absolutely no way. The review clearly showed Miami's player touch that ball with his entire hand and smack it out.

He had also just lost his best player to injury, so I'm not sure how fair that is.

Well my satellite just went out here in Bloomington. Hoping it comes back on soon in this blizzard so I can finish watching this game.

I got only 3 right in the West bracket. And I'm still in the 83 percentile of people. When I look back over it, I knew Pitt would lose, and I completely forgot that Ole Miss had Henderson. Ohio State is in the championship game for me though, so hopefully they don't somehow screw it up.
Luckily, my entire Elite 8 is still in tact besides Kansas State. When picking them it was more of a lesser of two terrible teams. Gonzaga is the worst number one seed in the history of college basketball.

Good stuff, and I agree Wormley looks about as slow as you possibly can off the line.
