I disagree. Don't get me wrong... he is an absolute joke when it comes to being a GM. However, I think he is one of the better CC guys out there. There are times it's difficult because I'm thinking "Why the **** should I believe you when you say that guy is good?" For the most part though, I think he does a good job.
He's no Spielman though... why it always pains me to say it, Speilman is the best CC in the biz right now.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Only thing I know||
Only thing I know with FS1/FS that I had major issues with was their Golf Coverage... cringeworthy.
Other than that I haven't had much of an issue.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Completely Agree||
I love noon games as well for pretty much those exact reasons. I also just love the look of playing under the noon sun.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Meh||
Reading the quotes from the players, I don't really know if that's all that accurate. I think, if anything, Harbaugh may have been more aggressive/rough with them than Hoke.
It is, of course, possible Hoke didn't. Especially when you factor in the play on the field. Just the process of watching film with the entire offense/defense is a very very common/basic thing. I'd be surprised if anyone who has played organized football hasn't experienced it.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Totally agree||
I totally agree it isn't as simple as my post makes it seem to be. However, I would like to see some figures as to how much money a University makes when they remove the "paying ourselves" portion. If memory serves (and it frequently serves me wrong) that was a point that came up during the O'Bannon case and the judge could never fully get over the fact that the schools are paying themselves, and then saying they aren't making any money... because they paid themself.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Naw||
Not what I want, simply seen that suggested before (I want to say it was Bomani Jones that brought it up.)
I do think it's an interesting option though. A lot of kids don't actually value that scholarship like other people think they should, and would value the money a lot more. But, as I said, it does introduce a lot of issues.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I simply||
I simply said that it's not a door opener you apparently think it is. That doesn't in-turn mean I don't think it will help open any doors and is a worthless thing. Just not the number of doors your post seemed to imply.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Yup||
Yup.. that's exactly what I said with my response... that it's a waste of space...
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Why not||
Why not offer Tutition money to them rather than covering their scholarship than? I'm sure a good chunk of college football and basketball players would opt for cold hard cash over going to school.
Of course that introduces a ton of other issues.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Do they?||
"It may be slightly correct that the time spent networking is reduced, but put "Division I College Football Player" on your resume and see how many more prospective employers knock on your door."
.. Do they come knocking though? Outside of maybe certain sales spots for certain players... I don't think that being a D1 College Football Player is going to be the door opener you think it is.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Well||
"Regardless of how nice and proper it might be to compensate somebody for their efforts, where are those athletic departments that normally operate in the red—which is the vast majority of them—going to get the large pile of cash that will be required to pay players?"
I believe the entire "Atheletic Departments are in the Red!" is a bit of a Red Herring in most situations. Look at the Univiersty as a whole, are they making money off of sports or not? In most situations.. they are, and they're making a lot.
It's a bit like me taking $100 out of my right pocket and putting it into my left pocket, and they saying my right pocket is broke and I can't afford to pay for anything.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I get that||
I get that. I still would be pretty surprised to see him retire in the near future though. Unless he has another health issue that is (which is always possible)
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I agree||
I agree that once he retires they will likely slip back.
But I don't see him retiring anytime in the near future. He's going to be around for awhile, and I hope they stay good... and I hope we beat them every single year.

I know that the American public isn't the smartest group ever... but I'm pretty sure more than 50% of them know how to actually spell our Presidents name.

"I have no interest in controlling her actions"
Saying if she lives at home with you then she can't go to parties isn't controlling her actions? Or saying that she has to sit next to dad at football games?
I get the point you're making about not being able to pay for everything, and that's totally a legit and fair point. But it sure sounds, from what you've said, that you're actually interested in controlling some of her actions.
EDIT: I may have misread your posts a bit. Sounds like you don't care if she goes to parties, just that you think if you pay for her rent elsewhere you're paying for her to party. Apologizes.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||How disappointing||
How disappointing that you think that way. Why not just let your daughter enjoy the college experience? Why try and control her actions by holding money over her head?
It's awesome that you're paying for college and giving her a place to live, seriously it is, but you shouldn't in-turn try and control what she does because of it.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Did you||
Did you actually read the post? Or did you stop right when he mentioned renaming things?
|13 weeks 2 hours ago||Everyone||
Everyone is of course entitled to their own opinions. Nothing wrong with not liking JUB.
That said, you're not maybe in the minority, you are in the minority, at least on this site.
I, personally, greatly enjoy his work.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||I don't||
I don't think anyone thought every cavs fan was booing it.
And your Cavs are totally dead man.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Well||
Chess is considered a sport by the IOC soooo.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Aww Yiss||
Aww Yiss I beat you by 3 minutes. :D
|17 weeks 2 days ago||I'll post it here too||
|18 weeks 2 hours ago||Uhh no||
Sorry pal, you and your buddies may do that. "90% of men" don't.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||And how the hell do you know he isn't fine with it?||
And how the hell do you know he isn't fine with it?
It's clear that you're not OK with it. That doesn't suddently mean Harbaugh isn't OK with it. So please, inform me or show me some proof that Harbaugh isn't fine with it... cause your "promise" means literally nothing.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||What?||
You mean, before people get engaged they're not dating 10 of the most beautiful people in the country at the same time, with their pick of who they want to marry? That's crazy talk.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Hmm||
I'm not too sure this is any different from 1985, or 95 or 05.
Kids taking visits to other schools after committing really isn't anything new.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||It doesn't exist||
Harbaugh has no policy or restriction at all on kids taking visits elsewhere after commiting.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Not Unsettling||
I don't find this unsettling. Kids should take their visits and enjoy them.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||How||
How do you know the response of the person who interviewed you?
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Hmm||
"Silencing by triggered/offended/SJW groups happens all the time on college campuses these days, but that doesn't mean it's not a tyrannical approach that disenfranchises minorities and allows the privileged to persecute the powerless."
Could you elaborate on that one?
