Can we assume these are your personal rankings, or do you have some reference?

Gil, use whatever you like and love it. Can you imagine someone selling you a fathead then a few years later telling you you're not supposed to use it? Keep it forever.

One exception under Bo being Wangler. if not for a lingering knee injury I always thought he could have been an NFL quarterback. He was at least in a camp - I think with Dallas. But I completely agree with you - he was the exception.
If he had that injury today he may have had a more better recovery and played on.

The other take is that he got the absolute most possible out of Kaepernick and he just wasn't going to progress much further due to limitations on his ability. There's only so much a coach can do. You just can't assume these guys can progress indefinitely.

Another interpretation is that it's like looking at a work of art of questionable quality, and one person insists everyone else doesn't "get it" because they're not knowledgable enough about art. Someone can always make that case and you can't argue with them because it comes down to a matter of opinion.
The reason they have to charge $90 is the pool of people willing to pay is shrinking to the point where they have to rely on the diehards who insist this really is great sport and only the true afficionados appreciate it. Maybe they're right
However It could also be that it just isn't that good or interesting.

If I paid $90 for that I'd be really annoyed right now. This was like a Super Bowl from the 70s - basically no action - only a lot worse because let's be honest, there really wasn't even a winner. What a scam.

My daughter started in 2008 and stayed for a Masters. I keep telling her you're a bigger fan after you leave. She's still disillusioned but that should change soon.

This should be the most exciting football/basketball combination year in a long time. There have been better teams in either sport but not this kind of overall optimism.
IMHO of course

|5 weeks 6 days ago||It shouldn't be considered||
It shouldn't be considered weird that someone would pick a school like VCU over NC, especially witha coach like Smart there at the time. The whole recruiting ranking obsession assumes every kid is going to naturally prefer the "top" program offered. That just isn't always the case.
How shocking would it be if he just wants to go somewhere he can eventually start, and go to school somewhere he likes?
|6 weeks 18 hours ago||Completely disagree||
Completely disagree. There may be more "good" players now but Nicklaus had far better and consistent competition throughout his run. For Tiger there never was a Palmer, Player, Trevino, Watson that could consistently challenge him. He also had 19 2nd place major finishes which Tiger doesn't come close to.
There's no doubt he's the best of his generation but unless you're a TV network trying to pump up Tiger for your broadcast you have to be honest and concede Nicklaus' record is more impressive in pretty much every way

I get the click thing but can't this guy find something other other than this to do? If nothing else projecting Michigan as an 11 is just lazy ignorance. At least try.

Not a Bo Ryan fan but have to sympathize with what he's saying. The refs weren't going to just let this game keep going on its natural progression. The equalizer calls started early in the second half. The sequence with the block called on Wisconsin followed almost immediately with the Kaminsky charge was all you needed to see. Those plays were almost identical.
