This is the first time in history that Tim Duncan and cool have appeared in the same sentence without the presence of "not" being in the middle of the two words.

Shoes are cool, for basketball.

10/27/2009 - 6:36pm A shame

It's a shame that a kid would squander an opportunity like this.

It's also a shame that the kid came in so highly touted and had underperformed so greatly.

Perhaps this could mean his performance would have been better had his heart been in it. At the end of the day perhaps it is better for the team to rid itself of players whose hearts are not fully in it.

But still a shame.

Too bad we aren't focusing on Wu-Affiliate Cappadona's lyrics. That thread would be hilarious.

09/27/2009 - 1:49am NFL's Pension Plan.

By being on IR last season Hart earned 1 year toward being eligible for the pension plan.

Quite a nice deal if you can make it.

The NFL's Post-Career Financial Plan

The NFL Players Association retirement plan package includes four plans:

1. Severance Pay Plan: A player with two credited NFL seasons (on the active roster, injured reserved or physically unable to perform list for three games in each of two seasons), receives $10,000 for every year played between 1993 and 1999 and $12,500 for every year from 2000 on.

2. Player Annuity Program: A player with four credited NFL seasons receives an annuity valued at $65,000 at age 35 or five years after his last credited season, whichever is later.

3. Second-Career Savings Plan or 401(K): A player with two credited seasons will receive a $2 match for every $1 contributed to the plan up to a maximum club contribution of $20,000 per year.

4. Bert Bell/Pete Rozelle Retirement Plan (pension): A player with at least three credited seasons earns a benefit credit for every season he plays. The benefit credits add up to monthly pension checks that player receive starting at age 55.

09/22/2009 - 2:04pm Not a bad one, either

Practice squad guys make a minimum of 5,200 for 17 weeks of the season, which breaks down to a minimum of nearly $90,000 for a whole season...To practice football!

Most guys make more. Hart is probably pulling down at least $100,000 to practice football.

Where do I sign up?

09/03/2009 - 12:29am My perception

Is that he'll be a high 3* or low 4*.

He looked like a sure-fire 5* prospect a few years ago but disappointed at M's Summer camp. I don't think he has top notch speed.

08/24/2009 - 10:39pm Possible, but difficult.

Possible, but difficult. More possible to do when a player has tremendous athleticism and quickness. At this level if a CB can break on a ball well enough he can be a star. Is Witty that guy? Probably not.

You questioned whether or not Witty had already "served his purpose," which I think is not an appropriate question geared toward any student athlete, regardless of their ability on the field.

08/10/2009 - 10:56pm I like it All in for Michigan kind of sucks but I don't care. We need a new attitude in the fan base and in the stands. I'll buy and wave the towel, I like doing my part to change the gameday atmosphere.
