I know that but I still think it was a unneeded aspect of the deal. Many in his camp have stated that in retrospect it wasn't as good of an idea IRL than it was on paper.

Looks to me like pieces of hardwood from the various courts they've played on. IIRC this years floor had that white design.

1. After being there for this long, the NBA wants 2 teams in LA and will never approve this.
2. Any sale agreement likely includes "will not move team" language considering it was well known that he wanted to move the Kings to Seattle further making it harder for him to do so in the future.

This is why you dont always chase that smokin' blonde (USC) to try and take home that you know is just going to cause you grief. Sometimes it's ok to go after the brunette or redhead who absolutely adores you and call it a night.
(BTW this is a general statement, sometimes I just don't understand the decisions kids make and within a year or two end up transferring which further hurts their chances at making the League)

You do realize that an employer can make anything they want llegal right? If i'm not mistaken UPS drivers cannot have any alcohol in their system when they are out driving hence if they want to party they need to allot enough time to sober up even though it's not a crime unless your over .08 in most states. Legalizing it has nothing to do with it.

You dont waste a 2nd round pick on a player, that right now at this moment is the 3rd/4th string WR; Maybe a 4th rounder on someone like Allen Robinson but nothing any higher. At the very least the Lions could snag a veteran FA to fill that roll in someone gets hurt.

Late to the party and only came here to say who the hell is making these decisions?
I do not understand having a "conference" tournament 10+ hours away from most schools in said conference and I really do not understand that the conferences marquee Bowl game features a cross country hike to California. #tradition I suppose. Fuck. This. Shit.

I think he meant that with many of these recruits having offers from Miami (YTM), Florida, Fla. St., Georgia, South Carolina, Clemson, etc. basically the pick of the litter of Southern schools you are going to have a hard time getting them up North not that it's impossible to get kids from down South.
I have no evidence to back this up but it seems that half the time a Northern school picks up a blue-chip type kid from the South he grew up in the North and only recently moved down South and/or has some other connection to the school.

Nope, still think these are one of the more "ugly" uniforms in football.

Make it regulated via the already in-place accrediated Agent structure. Since he's proposed a defined max amount then break down the payments into yearly increments (i.e. 1st year 30% payback, 2nd year 25% 3rd 20%, 4th-15%, 5th-10%).
Last of all, make sure that a loan is written off if a player is out of the leauge in 5 years. This will help to ensure that their is a risk to extending a player money and to not just throw it around to anyone/everyone.

Well its the wrong side of the ball...offensive wins games defense wins championships. Just look at Denver and all the coin they spent on the defensive side of the ball after their SB debacle.

According to statements by the NFL guys a lot of them swear by weed because it has no addictive properties such as found in pain pills and it allows them to reduce the pain of playing a collison sport.

KY resident here.
For what its worth, i've gotten nods of agreement when I tell my coworkers that this team is in no way comparable to the Fab Five and will not be remembered as such down the line. As someone pointed out above, this team is 5 individuals who didn't decide to start playing anywhere near a team-centric level until tourney time.

Is it just me or is this kid not worthy of at least a flyer of an offer? (by that i mean sometime in the near future and not February of nxt year) Based upon watching his MHSAA playoff performances it wouldn't be a terrible decision and frankly if it comes to pass you simply take the higher ranked kid and tell him he is your *guy*.

Oh how I love the irony when this conversation comes up.
Paying their dues such as attending MSU for 1 semester, dropping out and never finishing college like 9 out of 10 "friends" that attended MSU from my HS class (PS that is a true statistic)? Anyone that I've known who went to Michigan, graduated from Michigan; not one drop out or transfer.
Fire Up Chips, Go Blue and hopefully my portfolio does really well as I fully intend on sending them to Michigan, out of state tuition be damned.

...I honestly thought this was going to be because dudes are all like "Honey, you need to put serious effort into filling our your bracket instead of just picking which mascot you like. I mean if Duke gets beat by Mercer, I'll go get my boys chopped off".
|15 weeks 2 days ago||The argument is probably||
The argument is probably similar to an intern. Intern's aren't "paid" (e.g. scholarship) per say ergo they are not employees even though they often spend more time working than "employees" do.

I honestly would hate to be your kid considering your continued condemnation of the kid in this and the previous thread.
How about you use that hate and do something constructive and I dont know? Fly a kit perhaps? There is nothing to see here.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Wrong on both accounts (I had||
Wrong on both accounts (I had no idea who this kid was before this thread) and considering you immediately went for the insult tactic I assume that you yourself are the one who doesn't have a lot of life-experiences to pull from.
I simply believe that condeming the kid, who just lost the biggest game of his life, for the relatively harmless act of flipping the bird is ridiculous. It's not like he went on a post game radio rant or pile-drived a security guard like one-time-recruit Jayru Campbell. Those are condemable offenses; the Hawaiian hello, not so much.

Jesus jumped up Jenny. Have none of you ever "lost it" and immediately regretted it? I'm so happy that half the posters in this thread were able to control their emotions when they were 18 to the point of acting like royalty (e.g. stuffy and showing no emotion).
Please give us your parents phone numbers so we can verify this fact as i'm sure they may disagree with your own personal assessment of how you acted.

According to Peter King when he addressed this topic, 2pt plays would still be attempted from the 2 yard line.
|16 weeks 5 hours ago||How many of those can be||
How many of those can be described as lateral moves though? I would wager that many of those transfers are D1-Powerhouse to CUSA/MAC even if the kid was a Top 50/100 player.
The OP's point stands that many coaches get off by saying "well I know your from Michigan and your Momma is sick (hence reason for transfer) but Michigan/MSU/CMU/WMU/EMU are out, but have fun at Oakland if you want." The one year sit out rule exists to keep coaches from poaching other teams best players so why the hell should the HC have so much say in where a kid can continue his career at?
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Hasn't Braylon pretty much||
Hasn't Braylon pretty much been on 1yr show-me contracts and been cut from each place he's signed? I think at this point he's a person you call towards the end of the season when you need to fill a hole.

Nope, Kentucky opened a new dorm for basketball kids 1-2 years ago. Had something like 10 foot ceilings, long beds so their leg's dont hang off and a personal chef.

Dont blame the players, it's the insitutions fault for being greedy. They have killed the golden goose with their relentless pursuit of bigger and bigger TV contracts.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||I get what your saying, but||
I get what your saying, but please lets not say the answer to this problem is to simply charge it up. Fiscal responsibility is a lost skill for many and a huge factor in post-college quality of life. Keep in mind a lot of these kids will not end up in the pros.

I know the Lion's just signed Golden Tate but seriously do they not need more WR/slot WR's? Perfect guy to pick in the 3-5 range and he would be on a nice cheap rookie contract.
