She has sharp knees

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.
|9 weeks 3 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)
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Please explain||
Please explain why that is. I'd truly love to hear why.
|9 weeks 3 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.
|9 weeks 3 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"
|9 weeks 4 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.
|9 weeks 5 days 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?
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Did||
Did any other show take a nose dive in plot and writing and quickly as Heroes?
|13 weeks 4 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.
|13 weeks 4 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. :)
|14 weeks 5 days 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.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||"Checks and balances"||
It's actually our version of democracy working as intended.
|15 weeks 16 hours 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.
|15 weeks 16 hours 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.
|15 weeks 19 hours 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)
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Newbie||
Who you callin a newbie? ;)
I'm a lurker, but my account is older than yours. Therefore, I clearly have a larger ePeen.
|16 weeks 3 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" :)
|16 weeks 3 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?
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Yeahhhh||
Yeah, decommits after his primary recuriter is fired.
What a quitter... </sarcasm>

You don't know what kenpom is do ya?
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Pro Tip||
In life, if someone ever says "You never know" it's a no.
|18 weeks 19 hours 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.
|25 weeks 19 hours ago||Yeah... about that.||
I've heard this rumor before, and laugh everytime I hear it.
First, to assume that Stern would suspend MJ with the insane amount of money he was bringing into the league is ridiculous. That would not happen in the real world... period. It doesn't matter what MJ was doing or who he was doing it with... he was bringing in wayyy too much money and bringing wayyy too much attention to the league at the time.
But lets live in a fanttasy world where that did happen, to assume that MJ would take the suspension and not fight it is also laughable. MJ is a very stubborn, vengeful and bitter man (Don't really need to look much further than his Hall of Fame acceptance speech for evidence of that.) There is not a chance in hell he would bow out for two years without fighitng back.
To me, I take what happened at pretty much face value. His father dying probably had a pretty big impact on him, throw that in with where he was at in his NBA career (Killing it) I completely believe that he was growing tired of Basketball, and believed he would be successful at baseball. Occam's Razor and all that jazz.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Oh boy, you sure burned me!||
Did it take you all morning to come up with that one?
|26 weeks 6 days ago||He shouldn't care||
The last thing I want in a Head Coach is someone who has a plan, and isn't going to follow it for fear the fans won't like it.
He shouldn't care in anyway about how Lions Fans would like hiring Tressel, nor does he need to convince a single fan that Tressel would be the right guy for the job.
The only thing the coach needs to care about is winning. If he wins, nobody cares who he hired.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||EH||
I understand people paying attention to it. It just means nothing at all to me. 14+ years ago and not in the NFL. It's nearly meaningless to the job he can do.
I'm not saying the guy is going to be Vince Lombardi or anything. I just kinda laugh at the people who think he's going to fail because he wasn't a good College Coach.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Um||
Then your dad lost some money because your Uncle should have payed him more than a few times in 21 years.
