That was my first thought also.

But maybe Jim has found a way to clone himself.  Some of them could coach, and since his clones haven't used up any eligibility, they could play.  (The clones could surely put more mustard on the ball than Peyton Manning.)

There's a downside to that, and that's the decline of pick-up games among today's youth.

I grew up playing little league and other sports in the 70s.  We'd frequently corral/call enough of the neighborhood gang to go play pick-up games somewhere.

It would have been nice to have the internet back in the day as a source of training information.  But I don't regret the freedom, ability to experiment, and basically pure fun that pickup games offered.

Even the last kid picked always got picked.

 

The kids left behind either grow unsatisfied on regular recreational teams or get the message that the sport isn’t for them,

I think you get a point if you punt the ball into the endzone and the receiving team isn't able to bring it out.  Not sure if you get a safety for tackling the attempt to bring it out or 1 point, or if the one point is awarded when the receiving team chooses to take a knee to down it.

There's no way I'm watching five sets/hours of a tennis match.

I also find women's college softball more watchable than college baseball. 

If I'm channel surfing and a game is on the line when I don't have a strong rooting interest, I might stick around.  Five hours?  No way.

I think there should be a difference between someone who runs for 20 yards and gets a TD than someone who just runs for 20 yards. This is especially true when the RB could have run for many more yards if the ball was just somewhere else on the field when the play began.

I don't know if this stat is reason for optimism or ongoing anxiety, but Zavier was shooting 44.7% from three having made 17 of 38 shots going into the Northwestern game, but finished the season going an abysmal 7 of 46 or 15.2% over that span.

05/29/2018 - 11:02pm Michigan State slaps the floor Granny-style

Now if you want to see true effort put into a floor slap, check out Jae-Sean Tate

Note the athletic stance, with a far lower center of gravity. Unlike the Sparties, Jae'Sean gave 100% (so much so that he dislocated his shoulder).

05/23/2018 - 11:38pm The NCAA "Label Me" ads irked me

They reminded me of one of the all-time worst ad campaigns which came to be known as the "Drink Schlitz or I'll Kill You" campaign.

George Washington had to resort to executing soldiers to prevent it.

05/12/2018 - 3:31pm His becoming eligible event also changed the point spread

of the Notre Dame game.  Which was surely partially built in before his eligibility became 100% sure.

Sure, you never know, but I'd place my bet on the Top 25 NFL draft prospect.

05/06/2018 - 1:17pm I recall thinking of him as a decent 3 point shooter

but having the yips at the line, and perhaps tailing off at the end of the year.

It was more pronounced than I remembered.  Z's three point shooting was a tale of two ~halves of the season, as can be confirmed from 

http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/player/gamelog/_/id/4066377/zavier-simpson

Entering the 1/29 Northwestern game, Z was shooting a very good 44.7% from three having made 17 of 38 shots.

But for the remainder of the season, he shot an abysmal 7 of 46, or a 15.2% over that span.

Pretty ingenious if you ask me. Just think of it as trading down for the #1 pick next year.

04/22/2018 - 3:04pm Exactly

Harbaugh & Co called a whale of a game against OSU last year.

Now if he'd only had gone with the quarterback of the champion intra-mural team, he'd have won.

Oh, and BTW, he went out and got Shea to address the situation. And Drevno is no longer with the program.

We're you (DeepBlueC) part of the crowd trashing Beilein a couple of years ago? Who would you replace Harbaugh with? C'mon, I want concrete suggestions for a better program.

04/22/2018 - 2:52pm But think of all the money they'll save

on grass seed.

04/22/2018 - 2:42pm Auburn also lost to Georgia

when the national championship game appearance was on the line.
