"Lowest risk surgeries=highly rated recruiting classes."
This is probably the worst analogy i've ever read. And boy is that saying something.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Um||
You're forgetting the UConn Game.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Code||
"The issues are that Beilein runs a relatively clean program, is focused on grades and character, and doesn't pursue many one and done types.
I'd be willing to bet that his selective criteria eliminates 66-75% of the top 100 recruits from consideration."
This is known as "Speaking the code."

Oh no doubt, he made some sick throws in college. The one I remember the most is actually the Capital One Bowl, pretty sure first touchdown of the game where he rifled it into a super small window between the saftey and corner.
However, consistency was never a strong point of his. Tacopants was a regularly targeted reciever for him.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Well||
Because it's extremely difficult to be a good QB in the NFL. That's really about it.
Chad was never an amazing QB even while at Michigan. He put up very good numbers and I loved having him as the QB on our team, don't get me wrong. But he was never the star of the offense, and he had a LOT of talent around him too.
He's also played for teams that had average to below average talent, even while at Miami. He's not the type of QB that's going to make everyone around him much better, but he is the type of QB that can play with talent.
He's a solid backup QB in the NFL. That still puts him at the top .01% of QBs in the world. (48% of statistics are made up on the spot BTW)
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Please explain||
Please explain why that is. I'd truly love to hear why.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Soo||
So, just so I understand your argument here.
You agree that Curry would "dust" Nik because he shot 44% from three while averaging 10+ threes a game (Ignoring that he shot just 38% the following year)
Vs Nik, who shot 44.2% this year (vs curry's %43.9 high) and had a higher career as well at 44.1% vs 41% for curry.
The only advantage for Curry is he jacked up more 3s (9.6/gm vs 5.2/gm)
Don't get me wrong here, I think it would be extremely entertaining and close. However, I do think it's ridiculous to believe curry would "dust" Nik while using those stats as the reason why.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Eh||
I can see why they would want to be able to say that. But I don't see any reason as to why they should be able to say that.
Who cares what the current school wants, it shouldn't matter at all... especially if these guys are "students"
|27 weeks 6 days ago||I don't||
I don't believe many people have said it's a dumb idea because of unbundling. But because of the clear shift to streaming and a lack of purchasing cable TV all together.
Also, and I may be missing something, that article seems to be a little light on facts and a little heavy on assumptions.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Timelines don't match||
The timeline for taking Isaac and getting Damien don't line up. Ty will be making his decision very soon while Damien won't be for almost a year.
That being said, we are certainly closer to home. If we have a shot at him I say we should try to re-light that fire.

Can anyone explain to me the fascination behind mock drafts?
I just don't get it at all. Year after year they're hardly ever even close to being right, but so many people just eat em up. Why?

Did any other show take a nose dive in plot and writing and quickly as Heroes?
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Ahh Into the wind||
I completely forgot about that one!
I was thinking about Hillsborough vs Two Escobars for my #1, but man.. Into the wind is up there. That one was great as well.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||I'm still recovering||
I'm still recovering from the 30 for 30 on Hillsborough from Tuesday night.
Great great piece... but man was it difficult to watch sometimes. I honestly think it was the best 30 for 30 yet.
Hopefully this one is a bit more up-beat. :)
|33 weeks 1 day ago||I'm trying to remember||
I'm trying to remember the last time a "OMG This team really love this player and will trade up for him" where the team actually ended up trading up for that player.
I honestly can't recall it happening.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||"Checks and balances"||
It's actually our version of democracy working as intended.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||I don't||
I don't know if it would go away. But boy would it be one gigantic step in the right direction and would really quiet down a lot of the criticism against the NCAA.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||I disagree||
I disagree, representing the players who played before you is more than consistent with Bo's "the Team" mantra.
I also don't really see how it's any type of a distraction.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||I'm rooting for UConn||
I'll be rooting for UConn, but not really because of this. The Fab 5 have had their time to shine, and they're known for a lot more than being 5 freshmen that did very well.
(Edited to sound less dickish. Since I have a habit of sounding dickish)

Who you callin a newbie? ;)
I'm a lurker, but my account is older than yours. Therefore, I clearly have a larger ePeen.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||Hey||
Hey, if people want them than by all means ignore me. I just assumed (and we know what happens when one assumes) most people didn't want a topic every time someone ended up declaring as a lot of peeps declare.
Sorry for being "That guy" :)
|34 weeks 5 days ago||I'm not trying to be "that guy"||
But do we really need a topic created for each guy who ends up declaring in college basketball?
|34 weeks 6 days ago||Yeahhhh||
Yeah, decommits after his primary recuriter is fired.
What a quitter... </sarcasm>

In life, if someone ever says "You never know" it's a no.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||I like the Olympic Model as well||
I'm sure the students would like it as well. I'd perfer a lot of different options to an all-out bidding war
However, i'm not blaming the students or former athelets here, like it seems others are (not you :) ) I'm blaming the NCAA, as they built the monster they are now facing. When you have a situation that flat out punshes a "student athlete" for playing sports... something is wrong.
I remember hearing a story on this board (i'll try to track it down if someone wants) that talked about a Michigan Football player having a friend fix up his car for a few beers. After the compliance department saw that his car was fixed, they asked him to provide reciepts of the work done at an auto shop. When he told them his buddy did it, he had to take his car to an auto shop... get a quote for the work was done, and then pay his friend the amount needed for the car to be repaired if he took it in. That's fucked up. Since then i've heard of similar stories at other colleges... it's no joke.
