So Vegas is still in play?
|1 day 6 hours ago||I always wondered how the||
I always wondered how the coaching staff determines these things. Playing time would seem to be the main factor - then seniroity as the next reason perhaps?

Must be a really big scholarship then.

Completey agree here...although if you want to keep standing, see if they would want to trade seats.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Why limit yourself to the two||
Why limit yourself to the two options? Lying down is underrated.

Not until we beat OSU and MSU though
|2 days 23 hours ago||Will Campbell maybe - it||
Will Campbell maybe - it seems he switched back and forth between offense and defense which inhibited adequate development at any position. I think if he works with this staff - they would find a way for him to work at both and eventually focus on one.

Looks nice - but going down to the soccer stadium for a workout is a trek for most students. Any idea where the second facility is going to be?

I had always heard that if you name your kid Doctor, Judge, etc. you can save the money on the medical and law degrees. I take it his parents followed the same advice.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Haven't there been a handful||
Haven't there been a handful of NFL teams that made it with losing records in the last 5 years or so (Seahawks and Panthers come to mind).

Men's distance is 110 m, women's is 100m. Same number of hurdles though.

If you take his personal bests in each event - he tacks on almost 500 points to his decathlon score. No doubt a tremendous track athlete.
I think the decathlon is a good event in this debate because it combines a mix of events requiring strength, speed, agility, cardio (to a lesser degree - though you can argue that the level of fitness required to complete 10 events over two days itself is a key component of the event).
One problem with using decathlon is that other sports do not have an equivalent event. Triathlon might come close - but the focus is more on cardiovascular endurance than say strength or agility. Would be interesting to see if other sports could come up with an "equivalent". Maybe combine swimming/diving into a competition.
|1 week 4 days ago||I think the problem with||
I think the problem with using this criteria is that many athletes end up choosing just one sport to focus on - while there are some (like Jasckson) who manage to figure out a way to do both, by the time they hit college, the multi-sport athlete is rare
|1 week 5 days ago||Ed Davis was my middle school||
Ed Davis was my middle school history teacher. Whenever we had a multiple choice test/exam on the Scantron forms, he would throw on his jersey and helmet and had us time how long it would for him to run to the office and grade them.

I think in this case they genuinely had no way of knowing...in that area of the race the cameras on motorcycle had trouble keeping up through the turns. They probably only had the one camera on her and Abbott - which probably went with the leader when she passed by the crash.

I think they are showing some live events on nbcolympics.com
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah...did not look good at||
Yeah...did not look good at all. Compared to the men's race - still fewer crashes, but that one looked the worst by far over the last 2 days. Not sure I want to see another replay, but not really sure how it happened either, she was heading into the turn and it seems like a wheel locked up based on how she flipped straight forward.

Hoping the women's cycling road race does not have as many crashes as the men's race yesterday...some pretty treacherous dowe hills yesterday

Actually - they will go 10-2 in the regualr season. They will then move to the West Division and lose again to Ohio State in the B1G Championship before beating Arizona in the Fiesta Bowl.

Yeah...but which one of them would you have in a figh?
|7 weeks 4 days ago||To the latter part of your||
To the latter part of your point - it would also depend on whether this is a new move on their part or something they've been using for some time which may be present in scouting reports/video - though I'm not too sure how prevalent those may be in field hockey.
Additionally, considering how many languages would be present at the Olympics - pretty much all other countries would have the same advantage.

Depends on the sport they are playing
|10 weeks 9 hours ago||They had the second most||
They had the second most medals after the US in the London Olympics - mostly on the women's side - in fact several have been stripped of their medals or will be in the near future.

How does the commitment percentage compare to previous years?
|24 weeks 4 days ago||The initial comment seems to||
The initial comment seems to have been with regards to his first NFL go-around, rather than what he's done with Seattle
|30 weeks 12 hours ago||Any word on what Hackett's||
Any word on what Hackett's role will be - will he be around for a while longer while they transition to Manuel?
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Aren't many highly-paid DHs||
Aren't many highly-paid DHs players who were signed as position players - but have declined (or never were good) in the field?
They could always deploy the DH by commmitte option as well.

As long as they add a stipulation to the rule requiring Bartolo Colon to keep batting - I'm all for it.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||I had one class 2-3 years ago||
I had one class 2-3 years ago which several student athletes (motsly football) were taking - there was usually a guy who would come by right before class and hang out outside the room marking who was present (occasionally he had the professor sign off). Not really sure what his role was - perhaps academic support staff from the AD. I doubt that happens for every class though - this particular class just had so many individuals from the team, where it might have made sense.

But actually - Florida has looked less impressive offensively, so that would probably be my first pick.
