Did you see what he did in year 1 with Houston? I do think he will turn them around overnight, meaning they will be my pick to win the Big 12 next year and contend for a playoff birth. They won't be at the Ohio St & Bama level yet, but I see them in that next grouping blow along with OK, Clemson, FSU, USC, etc..
Aside from accolades and a financial windfall which are deserved, I'd REALLY like for him to be encouraged to share his experiences with fellow officers, especially newbies who haven't been put in this type of situation. I firmly believe that many issues that are attributed to "bad cops" are more likely a result of inadequate training given the responsibility and authority bestowed to them. Of course, there are some who truly do look to abuse their authority, but I think that's the rare exception.
We owe it to our sworn protectors to set them up for success, and I think as a whole we've fallen a bit short. Having success stories such as this studied, lessons learned shared, and training revised accordingly is a great way to help all of our law enforcement personnel.
And thus the award for "Homer Post of the Day" has already been locked up. You really think with a suspect passing game and a young and sometimes shaky O line that three's a possibility of blowing out Bama? I understand you said "A" game, but other than Samuel & the run game I general, that ceiling isn't super high like years past. I do agree our will keep us in it, but think Bama would / should be favored and I'd be ecstatic to pull out a W no matter the score.
Wow. I never realized how many uptight jerks we have around here!
Congrats on avoiding live game threads....
Bet those Purdue geeks could engineer some mighty tasty sod as an incentive...
Offers? We talkin about offers? Offers? Offers man, is that what we're talking about? We're talkin about offers... offers...
Is it the scheme or the execution that's the problem? I tend to believe it's more a result of the latter.
On 2 occasions, I played the waiting game with Stubhub and it turned out brilliantly. For Ohio St vs Bama, I didn't buy until a few hrs before kickoff. Prices had dropped dramatically by then. For what I paid for 50 yard line, 12 rows back would have only got me in the end zone the day before. Had a similar type experience for NCAA Men's Final, just had a much lower limit on $ since I had no real rooting interest. But again, had ok seats buying a few hours before tip-off for a price that may have scored nose-bleeds a day earlier.
Clemson would have 3 losses in your scenario.
You think that changes with another year in school? I think he'll be putting off the same fate another year by coming back. Now, he can certainly accomplish a lot in that year, but he's accomplished quite a bit already. If he believes he can be an NFL QB, I think he should start getting NFL coaching sooner than later.
