That sucks. As it turns out, I was gone from my faimly more than half a day today. All week, in fact. My kids may never forgive me.

Harbaugh must be forcing him to do this.
|28 min 10 sec ago||Yes, people with cash have||
Yes, people with cash have shitty days. But this isn't really a shitty day, and the shittiest part has to do only with money (dropping down the draft board). So it's like a rich guy having a bad day because his investments had a big drop. He's less rich today than he could have been, but he's still a really rich dude so people aren't going to feel all that bad for him.
It's not like Tunsil lost his mother or was diagnosed with Leukemia. He didn't have some major unfortunate event happen to him. He lost some millions of dollars (but will still get many millions of dollars) by doing something stupid. So yeah, I think money does have something to do with it.

There's a difference between "that situation sucks" and "I genuinely feel bad for him." He's a super high profile guy who is about to make a ton of money. He's been a local celebrity for 3 years. He has it good. The downside of fame is that when you do stupid stuff, a lot of people care. He's learning that right now the hard way, as many have before him.
I am lucky because if I post a video on Twitter (I don't have instagram) of me smoking a gas mask bong, no one will care because only like 63 people or something like that follow me and outside of my wife who never checks Twitter, none of those 63 would have an opinion on it one way or another. Hell, 40 or so of those people don't know what I look like. I'm unlucky because I don't make millions and millions of dollars playing in the NFL.
Laremy Tunsil could have my life (approximately) if he wanted it. In fact, in the very recent past Eric Crouch had my same position in my company in Nebraska. He has chosen (wisely, in my opinion) that he'd rather play in the NFL so he has to deal with the pros and cons that go with that. Thus, I don't feel bad for him.

Didn't Harbaugh do something similar with guys from Stanford?

My guess is still that Paea will be a NT. He just sounds like he could be a huge, strong 2-gapper type. And that's good because that's the position we need the most.

You're the second person to say Henne was the first pick in the second round, but he was not. He was the 57th pick. That's closer to the 3rd round than the 1st.

Henne was mid second round.
|6 hours 49 min ago||This is a stupid and||
This is a stupid and meaningless stat. It's not like the Big Ten hasn't put any starting QBs in the NFL since then. We had 4-5 starters this past season, depending on how you count Hoyer. That's more than almost any conference can say, and 3 of them are sure-fire long term starters.
Would you rather be USC where a bunch of QBs get drafted early and almost none of them pan out?

This. I've got two boys who love pizza too, and I pick up a hot and ready on the way home from work all the time. Being a snob doesn't make you cool.

I think he looks like Wormley. Quick get off, similar size. I could see him playing at around 300lb and could be SDE or 3-tech DT.

Maybe by childish he meant that his spelling and grammar is that of a child. A small, young child. Maybe one who is developmentally challenged and grew up in an area where attending school isn't an option.

It's not unique to Stanford that they don't guarantee admission to scholarship athletes. Remember Demar Dorsey?

If being hit by a meteor ever affected someone you love I bet you wouldn't find it so funny.

In all fairness, meteors are life-threatening too, and he has already stated he wouldn't care about that. I would rank a pulmonary embolism somewhere below meteor in terms of things I'd get upset if happened.

Recruiting Jimmy Jaggers? He lives in Rocklin, pretty close.

He knows the secret: have Ohio State's 2015 talent. That secret will beat a lot of teams. Just because he knows how doesn't mean he can do it. I also know the secret to dunking a basketball. Lot of good that does me.

He's not a half bad DC, but no one has any idea how he is as a coach. Who would you rather play for, a coach who has a decade experience coaching in college, has won bowl games, has coached in the NFL, has won many playoff games and coached in the Super Bowl, or a guy figuring out how to be a head coach for the first time?

Mine had the family bar, but I didn't know that nomenclature. I had a 4.0 in my '91 and it was a great running engine. Awesome summer car, also did killer donuts in the winter.

You'll be happy with my answer Ben - a Wrangler, no top, no doors, with a sound bar. I'm not super picky about the year, I've owned two of them, a 91 and a 2012. I actually liked the '91 better. Great car to take to the beach, but pack sweatshirts for the drive home.

Exactly. No college team ever would beat that squad.

Whatever 4 sports we have that they don't aren't generating any revenue.

The only one I said who might be above us is ND. Their stadium is not as big, but like us they gave a huge TV and apparel contract. They're usually close to us on these lists.

Really? Are you familiar with LA at all? People run all over the city, the air quality is way overblown.
