I was born in Ohio, but always lived out of state. When I visit the first place I stop at is Gold Star Chili.  Even before I see my family. The next day it is White Castle.

The only movies that I can watch over and over again are comedies or action adventure. Once I see a drama or suspense movie, I am not interested in seeing it again no matter how good I thought it was. But to answer the question, I will go with Talledega Nights the Ballad of Ricky Bobby. That movie cracks me up every time I watch it.

Well, you will be happy to know that I down vote you probably 98% of the time. Seriously, the only time I see you post it is something negative. I do not see you in positive threads like National Championship celebrations or other happy news.

Did you talk.to each player on the team and they told you there "never inspired".

no, what am saying is people cannot say that these players had no heart or hustle (which means that they were not inspired), but then say Craft was a great leader.

As for leadership intangibles, if you don't understand how important they are to teamwork --- then you either haven't played sports, or you just don't get it.

No, what I do not get is you speaking in generalities. Leadership tangibles? To me, a great leader inspires others to work hard and get better. A lot of people on here love to talk about how this senior class, Ross, and Smith Jr. have no hustle or heart, but then say Craft was a great leader. I am pointing out that how can he be a great leader when the people he led never were inspired. 

Comment 08 Mar 2015

I never understood this so called great leadership that Craft brought. People are quick to critcise these current seniors, Ross, and Smith Jr. for their lack of hustle and heart, but then praise Craft for his great leadership. But I scratch my head and think who was Craft leading? Oh yeah the same guys that get criticized.

*You're

Really? If I were writing a master's thesis, then by all means critcise me. But on an informal sports chat forum.

But fortunately for Matta this is a football school so most fans will see another 20 win season and a tournament birth and say we are good. But to me those 20 wins are deceiving because of a weak OOC schedule and losing in the few marquee OOC games we had.

To put this into a football perspective, the last two years would be like going 9-3/8-4 but losing all the games that really mattered and going to the Outback bowl.

edit: I guess that is like Cooper's last few years lol.

I will be in the minority.  I think it is a good idea.  A year to develop physically, academically, and emotionally.  Still give them 4 years of playing eligibility.

that is why you have red shirting. And regarding the kentucky comment, several college teams have been recruiting one and done players including Duke. And this years Kentucky team is being lead by juniors and sophomores who didn't leave after one year.

And why for only men's basketball and football? One of the arguments on why they can't pay athletes is that all student athletes are equal and that a member of the women's rowing team would have to receive the same benefits as athletes from the two revenue sports, and that colleges couldnt afford it. But they are singling out athletes in only two sports wirhbthis proposal.

note: this isn't an argument on if athletes should get paid, I am just noting an inconsistency.

Ok, it wasn't though. I get more annoyed by people pointing out that a thread is a dupe than I get with someone posting a duplicate thread.

Comment 17 Feb 2015

On the surface this looks terrible and super 8 may be in the wrong. But I am going to reserve judgment until I research. One thing I cannot stand is the social media pitch fork mentality. Just the other day I read a story that Tyndal AFB was going to stop playing Reveille and Taps in Residential areas. People went wild on Facebook saying things like that was un patriotic and going against military tradition. Come to find out that the tradition was only 2 years old and a lot of military bases do not play reveille or taps in residential areas.
