I think Reed's wife carried the full-size bag, it was funny because it looked almost as big as her.

Purdue being down there is nuts considering their front line is made of Ents.

Patrick Reed actually had his wife on the bag for a few years until she got pregnant with their first kid. She was on the bag for his first Tour win.

The important thing is that crew is all on Pebble on Saturday. This is by design since the TV coverage is basically limited to Pebble, and this way they have all the celebs on the CBS broadcast on Saturday.
|2 days 11 hours ago||There are a fair number of||
There are a fair number of celebs in the field who are there to play specifically with a buddy on the Tour. Or the Tour guy committed to the event right after their buddy committed to the event. Jake Owen is with Speith for that reason, Josh Donaldson with Dufner, Toby Keith and Stricker, Bubba and Mark Wahlberg, obviously Gretzky plays with his son-in-law, etc.
Some of the others they'll assign with tie-ins. Jerry Kelly's a Wisconsin native and he's paired with Aaron Rodgers, for example. And Bill Murray used to be paired with various guys (and they checked with the pro beforehand because not all of them could deal with his antics) but he won the Pro-Am with DA Points (who's an Illinois guy) and Points won the pro title, and they've played together ever since.
So no, not random. I think some of them do get assigned somewhat randomly, but there's a decent chunk of the business guys that are there that get paired with a pro who their company sponsors, for instance.

I'd like to see Caris play a couple of short stints tonight. Don't overextend him, just get him out there for a 3 minute stint in each half maybe to let him get a little full-speed action, and give someone a short rest. Don't want to overextend him obviously, but a small amount tonight, and then a more substantial bench role in the next game or two building up his minutes seems like a good way to go about it.
I mean, even that little bit of relief would probably be helpful to the team right now.

Or if the organizers are being dicks, they'll put Harbaugh in a group with Alex Smith.

Don't know if it'd be all 3, but if season ended now Connor and Motte would almost have to be there, one leading the nation in points and the other leading in goals.
Also, LOL Motte being property of the Hawks from a 4th round pick, because of course the rich get richer

At this point I wouldn't read anything into anything. They all know people are watching every little detail and it's fun to mess with people when it requires like 2 seconds of your own effort to make a bunch of people freak out. I know I would have at that age.

Glad to have him, but can't help but feel it's a missed opportunity for Wisconsin to not have offered a guy named Cheeseman.

The plan was for them to fight probably in September after taking a fight before that. More build-up time.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||He might have been getting||
He might have been getting the picture from non-communication though. The staff needs to be more blunt. Considering Harbaugh is usually pretty blunt with where guys stand on the team, it wouldn't be that much of a change to also be blunt with guys who you might not be able to take earlier than mid-January.
Be clearer before the dead period and this isn't a story at all.

They may as well. They magically find grant money for athletes they want, and there's also the "anyone whose family makes less than Xbox has free tuition" thing that probably covers a fair number of players.

Wisconsin is 1.5 hours closer to him.

There was a Cottage Inn carryout on my walk home from bars and I'd sometimes call an order when I was getting ready to leave and it would be ready when I stopped by on my way home

"This is absolutely crazy, especially when you consider the B1G made $157M."
The B1G made a hell of a lot more than that, they distributed 32 million a team in 2015, and expected to be 35-ish this year, so their rev numbers are probably pretty similar to the SEC.

Multiple outlets singled him out as a top performer so far so it's not just one or two guys with that opinion.

Looks like Tarzan, plays like, uh, someone who is on IR all the time.

If he were visiting on a weekend with nothing going on (or worse, a Rutgers game) I'd be a lot more worried but they host Maryland this weekend, and who wouldn't take a free great seat to a top 25 matchup like that?

Which is why he said 3-4 end. Not all 3-tech DTs could plausibly be a 3-4 end, but Henry's big enough to handle that.
If he tests well at the combine (and I suspect he will) I think he'll go in the 2nd round, maybe even 1st. A guy with his combo of size and quickness can be used in just about any defensive system.

|4 weeks 3 days ago||Not to mention being able to||
Not to mention being able to work at someone else's camp is a benefit to both the players at the camp and the coaches who work the camp - the coaches get to evaluate a bunch of players basically for free (because their school isn't spending the money to organize it) and the players get exposure to more schools all in one place to increase the likelihood someone offers them a scholarship without having to go to more camps.
If Michigan wants to invite other coaches, including FBS coaches, to its camp and some of those coaches want to do it, I don't see why it's any of the SEC's business. Harbaugh thought it beneficial to make the offer and to let others in, and Fitz thought it beneficial for him and his program to take Harbaugh up on the offer. Why does anyone else get a say in that?

Or you could have said "What's True Detective Season 2" - confusing and not particularly good

Butler pinned a couple quick fouls on Haas which I think helped. Purdue turned it over a bunch in that one (Swanigan had 7 himself) and Butler didn't, so while Butler didn't actually shoot well and Dunham was mired in his horrendous slump, they built out a lead in the 2nd half and held on. The former NC State Hobbit actually had a really good game for them.
