Are the shoes really going to be all white? That would seem very lazy of Adiddas to not give some color in e shoes.

If your timing poop, wouldn't you be downloading it.

Btw, the article is about a victim with brain damage, so stop describing the decision as a no brainer.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Why you haven't heard of marajuana suspensions before||
It's because they usually get reported as undisclosed team violations, player is tested by own school, and to avoid a harsher year penalty, the player gets suspended during the tourney or if football for the bowl game.
McGary probably thought since he wasn't playing he wouldn't get tested, but since we dressed him for a game, NCAA chose to test him then. So it was probably a motivational ploy that backfired on us. Note during the regular season, most teams don't suspend their players for smoking weed, etc.

Sterling has the votes? I think you meant to write Silver.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Double standard||
What Sterling said is bad, however there have been several times when players have made derogatory comments or bad jokes about gays or Asians on camera or twitter and nothing happened other than the occasional apology. What happens the next time now?
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Grain of salt||
Nice points, but keep in mind it's written by someone at sbnation that covers and promotes big ten. Someone from our conference needs to win the tourney soon.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Defensive specialist||
Also described as a possible defensive specialist.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Trade||
If by the trade deadline, they can't sign Scherzer they should just trade him for best they can get. They can still try to get him as a free agent in the offseason. This might damage this season, but would be better long term.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Capital required||
Culver's website says you need $350,000 to $600,000 to buy one.
Another comparison, you would need minimum of $750,000 and up to $1,500,000 for a Mcdonalds.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Taxes paid per game||
Taxes in sports are paid per game played, so about half of annual salary will be taxed based on playing half your games at your home arena. The other half that would be taxed based on each game played at the state taxes of the away game. I'm sure there might be some loopholes too, I.e. I don't know if they don't travel to the away game due to injury, do they still pay that away tax since they didn't work there that day.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Standing around||
I sometimes also think when we hit a drought, that we should mix it up a little too. Lots of teams start out this way. It would be great to get detailed explanation on it, i.e. Is it to rest our guy and/or just to stretch the defense, use clock to impose our pace.

Wait, do to you also have a problem with people saying or writing Go Blue?
Everyone is entitled to an opinion, so I'm good.
Now I got someplace to go to.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Letter of intent was signed||
Well, recruits sign letters of intent which they did as did our recruits, so those would be very hard to get released from.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Not as many touch fouls for us||
I think people are mainly bothered about the officials not also calling several touch fouls against Stanford that they called against us, seemed like at least 3 times in second half , contact was only called on one side. The replay did clearly show Glenn getting pushed in the back on his final drive, should have been an and one.

What made the place great when I was there you could pick a lot of different items to make your own style of burger. It was way ahead of most burger places, but now places like Red Robin offer a lot of combinations. I graduated in 90, so I don't know what the burger scene is like in AA now.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Spike is dishing dimes||
Team seems to run more smoothly offensively with Spike running the point.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Come here Peqppers||
Peppers should think about the strong points for coming here
sure we didn't have a good season like, so I understand why Bama is alluring and with how you got close with Hand during the year.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Gus is head coach at Auburn||
Are people not aware of his current status? Gus Malzahn is head coach at Auburn now, he's not taking anything other than a better Head coaching gig.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||No huddle stopping strategy||
Another often deployed slow down strategy would be to have players sit on the field for an "injury", then walk/limp off the field for 1 or 2 plays. It really pisses off the offense too that the can't get quick snaps.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Also he is a commit...||
Title could be improved to say he is a Nebraska commit, still playing high school.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Manziels are rich...||
I don't get why Johnny would take this chance, since he comes from a rich oil family. Is he just dumb, an egomaniac, or doing what others are getting away with because the NCAA is incompetent.

Scout96 on Xbox, I'll look for other handles on this post.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||From the wiki||
Each student-athlete receiving athletically related financial aid earns one retention point for staying in school and one eligibility point for being academically eligible. A team’s total points are divided by the points possible and then multiplied by one thousand to equal the team’s Academic Progress Rate score. Example: A Division I Football Bowl Subdivision team awards the full complement of 85 grants-in-aid. If 80 student-athletes remain in school and academically eligible, three remain in school but are academically ineligible and two drop out academically ineligible, the team earns 163 of 170 possible points for that term. Divide 163 by 170 and multiply by 1,000 to determine that the team’s Academic Progress Rate for that term is 959.
Teams that score below 925 and have a student-athlete who both failed academically and left school can lose scholarships (up to 10 percent of their scholarships each year) under the immediate penalty structure.
