this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines

performance could be more impressive than those six, but Jordan always had a very good team around him, even though some choose to pretend he didn't. I believe Bulls were a 3-seed and a 5-seed in the two years he was gone.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Jenner||
requested that he be referred to using male pronouns in that very interview. I'm sure that'll change soon, but I just wanted to let the poster know that he/she missed the mark in his/her attempt to be progressive.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||He||
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Defense||
Defense initiated contact. Defensive foul or nothing. If defense didn't initiate, then you're right.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Can't believe||
Can't believe Hayes hasn't been called for an offensive foul. Blatant hook literally every post move I've seen him make.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||The defender fouled Appling||
The defender clearly fouled Appling before the push-off
|1 year 25 weeks ago||The research I've encountered||
has primarily led me to conclude that it is exceedingly difficult to generate reliable estimates. Even if we accept that only 10% or less of rape charges can be coded as false accusations based on review of the evidence, it doesn't necessarily mean that the remaining 90+% were legitimate accusations, a point which is lost in the posts linked by Seth.

It will never get called, but because he gathered the ball with one foot on the floor, technically his feet would need to land simultaneously on the jump stop to be legal. It was a fair question, and if traveling rules were strictly enforced (which was the question), it COULD have been called. I don't have a huge problem with that not being called, because it it wasn't egregious. However, the amount of traveling that takes place (and, even worse, what people now believe to be legal) is one of the most frustrating aspects of the current game. The NBA is the worst, of course.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||When did Lewan last play competitive basketball?||
I doubt he'll even get drafted, let alone as a lottery pick.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Huh?||
I assumed that the court was located in a swimming pool. Aren't all women's sports played under water?
|4 years 42 weeks ago||That's definitely||
the guy. He's not from Ohio; that's just a Buckeye site. As you see, he went to St. Thomas Aquinas (the "STA" that you see referenced), a HS Florida football power.
|4 years 42 weeks ago||So Webb's gut feeling was right,||
until it ended up being wrong.
|4 years 44 weeks ago||Probably||
why he said "in general" rather than "without exception"
|4 years 44 weeks ago||I'm not sure||
about the Pryor comparison, either. I agree that the Pryor/Young comparisons are largely due to similar body types and stride length, and from what I've seen Gardner seems to be noticeably slower (or at least less explosive) than both. Now, that's not to say he won't be a great QB. I think he has the ability to become a much more polished passer than either Pryor or Young.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Or you||
just gobbled up their cliches, true or not.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Does the player||
get automatically ejected and suspended for the next game?
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Right.||
So coming off the bench like that is an infraction that violates the integrity of the game to such an extent that it is unjustifiable, regardless of whether the player saved the game for his team. It seems that some feel the same way about Suarez's violation.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||No, it's not a perfect comparison.||
A perfect comparison would contain a foul that is viewed as an equally severe violation of the rules. Comparing the punishment for pass interference with the punishment for this foul shows which one is considered a more egregious violation. In assessing the hand ball, the impact of the violation is not all the matters. The severity of the violation matters as well. Additionally, knowing what the consequences are and accepting them does not necessarily make the decision to commit the violation acceptable.
A simple example can illustrate both of these points. Imagine a college football player running down the sideline with nobody having a chance to catch him. What if a member of the opposing team who is on the sideline sticks out his foot and trips the player? He knows the consequences of his action (15 yard penalty, ejection, and likely suspension), but he does it to save a touchdown. The impact of the trip is the same as the pass interference penalty. Would this be a brilliant play? I imagine most people wouldn't think so.
In my opinion, what unfolded today was in between the above scenario and the pass interference scenario. Whether or not you're okay with it is, in the end, a judgement call. I, for one, am conflicted.

distinctly more athletic than Williams. Most would agree about his poor instincts.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||Sure,||
I understood your point. I was simply saying that the fact some West Africans excel in the same types of physical activities does nothing to show that West Africans are, on average, as athletically gifted as African Americans. It does show that it is possible for a West African to be a world class athlete, but this could be shown for nearly any people group.
I do agree that it's a questionable (at best) assumption that something happened during slavery.
|5 years 22 weeks ago||I agree that||
this is likely a myth, but your post contains its own non sequitur. The fact that world class West African athletes exist does little to refute his claim.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||Maybe people are being a bit too negative||
but the kid certainly looks on the slow side for a D1 receiver. The breakaway speed just isn't there.
What do you mean that the kid "catches everything"? That he had some nice grabs in his HIGHLIGHT video?
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Exactly||
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Exactly||
Michigan fans may find ways to really like this class, and they may do so for good reason. However, all the high school talent evaluators and recruiting services agree with Herbstreit. Talent wise, this class is clearly below average for Michigan. If it weren't for the unusually large size of the class, Michigan would probably be ranked even lower.
I fall somewhere in between--I'm okay with the class, but I wouldn't say I'm especially excited about it.

"you're right" would have sufficed, but close enough.
|6 years 41 weeks ago||I'm glad||
you can spit out the old cliche about getting two hands on the ball.
