I can accept that the things you describe happen, but I seriously question the impact those things have specifically on winning a national championship.
|2 hours 15 min ago||Meh||
I think this is a rather poor attempt to forge a weak correlation into causation while ignoring a shit ton of confounding variables.
I'm not saying all methods are equal, but developing a surefire recipe for a national championship is like nailing jelly to the wall.

to Zach Novak's Aneurysm of Leadership for that one.

Analogy failure #1: the manner in which a player interacts with the media has never and will never influence the interest of an NFL team.
Analogy failure #2: the players who talk to the media "at a minimum" or are total dicks to the media aren't being fined or hounded, so at the very least, there's an unfair double standard here.

Loads of presumptive douchebags in this thread.
The only reason players are required to speak to the media is because the Skip Baylesses of the world need to justify their meaningless existence. The entire sports media industry has done their level best to make sports about them instead of the actual participants, and it's been this way for decades.
It's why Peter King literally holds grudges against players who don't speak to him on their own time and smears them in his columns for years (Cam Newton is a prime example). It's why talking heads brag on the air about all the coaches and players to whom they have access only to do nothing of journalistic value with said access (plenty of media moguls knew about the Ray Rice tape long before it was released to the public and sat on that information).
Sports media is full of narcissistic jackasses and I won't begrudge Marshawn Lynch for being reluctant in giving them the time of day.

I'd much rather live a life similar to his as opposed to the other names tossed out.

I'm in Danbury, CT and this probably means work will be deserted on Tuesday. Good thing I've been at the office for 9 hours so far today...bleh.
I wish the interview and hiring processes moved just a bit faster so I can finally move to southern California.

For those of you whom do not frequent KissingSuzyKolber...the fact that Peter King is the "unofficial voice of the NFL" is a huge reason the entire organization is a laughingstock. He's a joke of a joke

Nice troll job with the thread title, and you also managed to post a PFT article written by Mike Trollio. Seriously, the only purpose for that guy's existence is the fabricating of HOT SPROTS TAKES.

This comes up every year, and it's because people play too much NCAA and think it corresponds to reality.
|1 week 23 hours ago||I get it||
So less pure "stickiness" and more size and straight-line speed on the outside. Brandon Watson was pegged for a safety later on, but now he might be a corner as well.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Weird||
He's got some decent speed, but he'd be a severe body-type outlier.

Well, now we all know who's still a member of one of those frats.
|1 week 1 day ago||I mean, sure||
But he's injured, and it might be for the season. It's not like he's riding the pine for shigs.
|1 week 3 days ago||?||
Why are you friends with people that douchey and stupid?
|1 week 4 days ago||whut||
Can't do it every year if you're not planning on getting one-and-dones.
Spike, Irvin and LeVert worse than last year? Are you kidding? I think the fact that they're not surounded by players like Stauskas and McGary, and even GRIII is giving you a false impression. Irvin's had some cold nights, but he's also being asked to do much more than last year.
Guys are hurt and/or sick. It happens. This class isn't really going to be an immediate-impact type. I'm guessing we'll make the tournament next year cleanly.

About as likely as you ceasing to touch yourself at night.

"Use the prestige of an athletic program to cover up illegal activities all you want, but if you even smell like anything approaching the boundaries of amateurism, we'll fuck you up. Sound good?"
|1 week 6 days ago||sigh||
Because you touch yourself at night.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||Sure||
But one would hope that one's own parents wouldn't bankrupt one's ass behind one's own back.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||That sounds right||
I think Chatman will be a good player once he adjusts to the speed of the game and works on the moves leading up to a shot. During possessions, he'll show some exciting flashes; he just needs to put it together. It's like my golf game...I'm capable of hitting excellent shots, but my scores aren't great because I don't often put together a solid drive, approach shot, chip, and putt in one hole.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Feel a bit bad for Beilein||
We still have trouble playing defense 1-on-1, but on offense, there's not much the coach can do about awful shooting. It's not like we don't generate more than our fair share of good looks.
I still feel like both Chatman and Dawkins can make the Beilein leap.

You mean land on the MOON?
Because that happened last year.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Are you serious||
Holy fucking fuckballs. I...I can't even address the inanity of this pointless nonsense.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||It was worse||
He didn't lose it. He had already caught it, come to a stop, and was putting it down.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||what the fuck||
So here we have a Cowboys fan bitching about the officiating of last week's game.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Yup||
He was robbed.
Are you looking for sympathy? Because fuck that.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Still don't get it||
The small cluster of Coleman-haters (who remain the exact same group of people) just never shut the fuck up. I mean, you're stating some things that are just patently false.
