I was on the fence until I saw the Hokepoint. Now there is no doubt. Looking forward to Chris Brown's article and also Johnny's for more Denard myth-making.
|3 years 49 weeks ago||Yeah||
I actually like the design. It might not be a "real" throwback, but I think the jerseys look nice and seeing them does make me think about the history of the program... so they work for me.
I can see why other people might feel differently, but as long as it's just for one game, I wouldn't have a problem with the team wearing these.
|4 years 15 weeks ago||Agreed||
DB put Hoke (and the recruits, too) in a bad position by waiting so long to make a decision
|4 years 15 weeks ago||I don't think||
you are actually disagreeing with me.
|4 years 15 weeks ago||I support BH||
because I support M, but that doesn't mean we have to pretend he's all that qualified to be the head coach. It's an objectively questionable hire that we all hope works out. And maybe it will. But this "clap louder" stuff just sounds like an attempt to silence opinions that you disagree with, even if you mean well.
Here's an analogy: imagine a basketball player who takes an ill-advised three pointer. If it goes in, does that mean it was a good idea to shoot? Of course not. But you're still happy if it does. So that's where I'm at right now, and I think many others probably feel the same way. BH's resume makes this a questionable hire no matter what and I'm skeptical that it will work out, but all I care about is that it does.

This is why we can't have nice things.
Dunno about the "decade of THE_KNOWLEDGE," tho... I'm pretty sure Will Smith has the entire millennium spoken for.

This was a post about RR?

Just made me feel 10x better about Hoke. And 100x more confident that he lives in a van down by the river.
|4 years 15 weeks ago||no||
|4 years 15 weeks ago||Sure||
But you can support a coach without thinking it was a good idea to hire him. Maybe OP's point was that buying into Hoke requires an even greater leap of faith than usual.

it wouldn't be a blog

|4 years 52 weeks ago||Al Davis factor aside...||In my opinion, scouts got it wrong because scouting itself gets it wrong -- I mean, you'd only think that scouts would "have this stuff down to a science" if you thought that scouting was a science in the first place. But it's not. Success at the professional level seems to be contingent on a variety of factors that are (a) interrelated (b) difficult to measure and (c) not very well understood. Combine results and collegiate performance don't seem to have much predictive value. Can't imagine that makes Raiders fans feel any better, tho.|
