I watched some of the series with OKC. OKC seemed to have the better all around team, but GS had a couple guys that could shoot the ball from 30 feet. It was about as interesting as watching a long drive contest and being told the guy that won was the best golfer.
Well, this certainly isn't the first time I've been out of step with what has been considered today as progress. That's why my tv has a channel changer and off button. I do wish someone would figure out a way to work that thing with out getting out of my chair and walking across the room. One of the few advantages of getting old is having seen lot of things and being able to decide for myself what I think is progress and what isn't.
I agree with Evan. I think the three point shot has ruined basketball. Defense and rebounding and offensive team play has taken back seat to a bunch of guys that can chuck it from the cheap seats. Why should a lucky heave from 30 feet be worth more than a lay up that's the result of a well executed team play?
Yea, but I always feel like Captain Kirk when I whip it out. And the looks I get are priceless.
Hey, what's wrong with flip phones? Mine works just fine. Not everyone needs more computing power in their pocket than the astronauts took to the moon. And get off my lawn whippersnapper.
Jorts. The ultimate in recycling. They are back n style here in Florida.
I'm guessing they would be warm enough if they came north in September, even to Wisconsin.
You, sir are a genius. Of course, I thought this was a great idea when I thought of it years ago.
My memory must really be going. I can't remember reading that Game Day in 2014. It was priceless. Thanks for the link.
Phi: Buckeye enclave in FLA? Where? I'm in Clearwater.
I lived in the Milwaukee area for 30 years, and all we ever heard about was how great a city Chicago was. If that was true, why was every other license plate on weekends in southeastern Wisconsin a F.I.B. The best part of moving from Wisconsin was never having to drive through Chicago again. If you love bread pizzas, sitting in traffic, and obnoxious Cub and Da Bears fans, Chicago is your mecca.
I think Green Bay would be a great place for Cardale. No pressure because Rogers has several good years left, and Green Bay is the closest thing to a college atmosphere in the NFL. I think he'd flourish in a small town environment. No place loves and respects and protects their players like Green Bay fans.
Urban Meyer's program seems to be a great segue into real life for these kids. Honest self evaluation, honest feedback, success based on performance, and aggressive competition all are prescriptions for success in the real world. Based on recent observations, it's too bad the rest of the kids in college don't appear to be getting this kind of preparation for life.
Great comment. No sense having all these great players and not playing them.
Every group always thinks they have things worse than everyone else, irrespective of their situation. It's human nature. Of course the NCAA and the schools profit off he athletes, and the athletes trade their services for a period off time for a valuable education and a foot in the door for much greater things in the NFL. It's the way the real world works. The system has it's faults but seems fairly stable. We are the beneficiaries because we have the greatest two spectator sports in the world to enjoy, College and Pro football. I don't lose any sleep over which one happens to be complaining at the moment. Both come out in the end with pretty sweet deals.
_ichigans best players have more than not, always come from Ohio. A bunch of good, pissed off football players with a chip on their shoulders because OSU didn't offer, or because they weren't recruited by OSU as vigorously as they though they should have been, is how scum is going to get back in the game. Harbaugh is bat_hit crazy, but he is not stupid. A bunch of misguided OSU fans want TTUN competitive again. Be careful what you ask for.
Ol' dude?? Depends on your perspective. That guy can't be much over 30. And shitting yourself in meetings happen all the time. Lots of times, it's the best thing that happens in meetings.
Been down here winters for three years now. Home to Dublin in the summer / fall. It's incredible that these two states really are parts of the same country.
The worst thing about getting old is seeing all the people you knew and watched and listened to as a kid leaving ahead of you. The second worst is beginning to realize 90 ain't really that far away. RIP Joe.
These 65 year old NFL GM's are my age, and guarantee they did some intense partying in the 60's. What a bunch of phonies. Do as I say, not as I did. Probably complaining about Boas and Zeke while they are sitting around swilling $300 a bottle scotch. The NFL is the epitome of an old boys club.
Why not put a shadow on Valentine and take him out of the game? He seems to be able to do what ever he wants.
Snorkeling trip to Molokini Crater (Maui) is well worth the time. Ditto helicopter ride on Kauai.
My nephew has one more year of OSU optometry school to go. I think they're still using the same building, but with lots of renovations inside. He'll enjoy seeing the picture from the 20's.
