"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.

Do you live by that intersection?
|2 hours 24 min ago||I'll take a stab at answering it for him.||
This team's success is dependent on everyone doing their jobs well, not just the OL.
There's competition in fall camp at every position. We always do some shuffling of the OL in practice so we have more options if someone goes down. The only uncertainty is tied to Kalis' recovery from injury.
Coach Nuss and Coach Funk are simplifying the scheme for our OL. Every one of the returning players has more experience now and we expect to see a lot of improvement.
Then I would resolve not to take another question from you all season. Prefacing questions with misleading or inflammatory statements is a very Drew Sharp thing to do.
|14 hours 31 min ago||No matter the level of competition,||
this trip allows them to get a lot of extra practice. NCCA allows 10 days of practice before the trip, plus more in Italy.For a team playing so many freshmen, this trip is a godsend.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Thanks, I forgot about that one.||
I was there too.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Donnal had 3 ORebs, Doyle had none.||
Do you think he may have gotten the names reversed?
|1 day 23 hours ago||I know we don't like the schedule,||
but of all the criticisms made of Brandon, this is possibly the worst.
Delaney doesn't rule by fiat. The schedules are approved by a vote of the ADs. If Brandon says we will not play at MSU twice in a row no matter what, what does he have to back that statement up? It's obviously an empty threat. In all likelihood, doing that and running to the media would have just made him and Michigan look foolish.
As someone with experience drawing up schedules, I expect they agreed on a formula that prioritized different variables. Changing the divisions was naturally going to cause some scheduling problems. Having every team play 3 home and 3 away within their division was deemed more important than avoiding consecutive home or away games. Once they've agreed on a formula and a process for generating the schedule, they're not likely to change the results to suit the loudest voice in the room. Indiana might not be happy about coming here twice in a row either. We're far from the only team having to do this.
|2 days 45 min ago||I can see why he'd want to go in the next draft,||
but I don't see how he can refine the skills at a new position before then. I think he'd be smart to keep his options open. Coming back next year to play RB or WR could be a good move depending on his draft stock.
|2 days 1 hour ago||When's the last time Ole Miss came up north?||
If I had to guess, I'd say in the 1930s.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Henson got $17 million to pursue||
the sport he loved most. The worst case scenario basically happened. Instead he might have made more in the NFL. The only risks were injury before the draft, his stock falling, non-guaranteed contracts, taking way too many hits, etc. Maybe those risks are justifiable if he loved football more, but I don't think there is any question that he made a smart decision.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Of course it does,||
but they have 4 games to break in new starters before conference play. They still have an awful lot of talent, just more question marks than usual. Writing them off is way premature and I'm staying off the MSU bandwagon. They might be really good again, but I don't see how they're any different than the team that flopped in 2012.
|2 days 16 hours ago||OSU is not going to be a cakewalk for anyone.||
Hell, they might still be the favorites. Having to play a highly ranked RS FR at QB is not the end of the world. It's not like they're going to be trotting out Joe Bauserman.
|2 days 19 hours ago||That quote was in reference to Graham Glasgow,||
|2 days 19 hours ago||I'm sure Hoke isn't proud of this at all.||
In fact, I'd bet he feels a lot worse about the situation than we do. That shouldn't prevent us from being pleased with how he has handled it.
|2 days 20 hours ago||I was just asking you a question.||
I've no idea why you think I need to calm down.
|2 days 23 hours ago||What could be done to increase parity?||
I have a hard time thinking of anything practical. Salary caps and drafts are the primary tools of the pro leagues. The NCAA could move to smaller scholarship limits or not allow teams to reuse the scholarships of players who leave early. There's good reason not to like those ideas.
|3 days 8 min ago||We're playing real games in less than two weeks||
and you think a scrimmage is what is going to influence recruits' perception of our program?
|3 days 15 min ago||Negative team rushing yards||
are probably botched snaps.
|3 days 1 hour ago||I'm most excited to see what Mattison can do||
with a defense strong in every position group. He knows a lot of ways to create havoc, but has been limited until now. I'm not even worried about the SS. I expect to see a lot of blitzing from there.
|3 days 2 hours ago||Part of the scrimmage was trying to run it in||
from the 1 yard line. While it's fair to say the rushing game wasn't very effective, I'll agree with Sten that the statistics from a scrimmage don't mean much.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Good one!||
|3 days 16 hours ago||Thanks, Don!||
|3 days 18 hours ago||Kalis might even be back before the first game.||
I think where Glasgow ends up will be determined by how everyone else looks while he and possibly Kalis, are out. If Cole grades out well, I'd be very surprised to see him give up his spot. Hopefully, we're not going to have any obvious holes to fill.
|3 days 18 hours ago||I think he's only visible on the mobile app,||
because you're right.
|4 days 57 min ago||At one point the score was 80-30.||
They really took their feet off the gas.
|4 days 7 hours ago||I didn't hear Hoke say it,||
but Lewis is clearly the other starter. Countess may not be 100% yet.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Hoke said tonight that Peppers is starting at CB.||
When they're in nickel, he'll slide over and Taylor will come in.
|4 days 18 hours ago||No reason to write that off.||
I have friends who transferred in for summer classes after a year. They had no chance of getting in straight out of high school.
|5 days 23 hours ago||"plagiarized"||
mentioned only since it was about academics
|6 days 52 min ago||I think it was a slip.||
I bet one of the Willie Henry mentions was supposed to be Pipkins. It'd be nice to know which one.
|6 days 57 min ago||Since Cole is slated to start the first game,||
the redshirt part of your first scenario doesn't apply. I think the safest assumption to make is performance while Kalis is out will go a long ways to determining the lineup when he comes back. That's assuming that he has to miss some games, perhaps not a certainty.
