Must say I'm slightly underwhelmed. Not on par with last couple Dream Teams, but still probably talented enough to bring home gold. Go Team USA!
Johns Hopkins. Things with too many s'es weird me out.
Gatewood BBQ? I think you mean Gates. Indeed, many KC BBQ establishments have seen better days. Jack Stack, Arthur Bryant's, and Oklahoma Joe's are still good. We'll see if Oklahoma Joe's can maintain its quality now that they're going national.
Why never any love for Wilt? The man averaged over 50 points and 25 rebounds a game in his third season, playing in every game.
Love the Pistol Pete mention.
Probably MJ first, though. Then O, then Wilt.
But you're not getting OSU football and basketball games via Sling or Roku, right?
I could see investing in physical silver as a tiny portion of one's investment portfolio, but I personally wouldn't recommend putting significant $$$ in a volatile and illiquid commodity.
I have dabbled a bit in precious metal ETFs because they are liquid investments; and some of them track the value of the physical metal. It's almost like owning the metal without physically possessing it. The big advantage is that you can sell it at any time, something you can't easily do with silver coins.
The iShares Silver Trust (SLV) is a commonly-traded ETF that tracks the value of physical silver and is a liquid alternative to possessing physical silver. Other ETF/ETN options that *may* or *may not* suite your investment strategy (read: commodities are inherently volatile and thus risky) include SIVR and USV, but you'll want to read up on those to make sure you understand the advantages and disadvantages.
Disclaimer so I don't get sued: always consult your personal investment advisor to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of any potential investment.
Burns is probably going to stick with the good guys.
Painful as it is to say it, FSU's 14-year streak of top 5 finishes in the AP poll (1987-2000) won't be broken. No program has even caught a whiff of that streak.
They of course were able to do that because they played in what was consistently the weakest major conference in the country back then (and it wasn't even close). We won't see that kind of dominance in the post-expansion and playoff era.
What of Sam Bruce?
I think the Miami coaches may know Bruce is out, as they are visiting WR Eli Stove today and may have him on campus right before NSD.
Not to be a Debbie Downer, but Georgia is still considered the leader according to the CB's, and the AJC's recruiting analyst as of right now still expects him to stay home come NSD. Hope he's wrong.
Great write-up, Birm. Always pulling for OSU commits to succeed, but now I'm REALLY pulling for Jahsen to realize his potential. It's no fun to be doubted--especially by teachers, coaches, or other authority figures--but it's all the sweeter when you prove the doubters wrong.
Will be pulling for Jahsen big time.
This sounds like something out of the Jerry Sandusky recruiting playbook.
If Steve Harvey were the chairman of the CFB playoff committee the Bucks might be playing for a natty championship next month.
Excuse me, but the proper term is "moobs" or "man cans." Thank you.
2-loss Stanford ain't getting in over 1-loss OSU.
It's simple: we need one upset next week in ACC or SEC championship game and OSU is in.
Not really. We were the better team in '98. We weren't the better team in '15.
This is sad. It is also terribly ignorant. These are the two safest, almost terror-proof cities in America today. No Paris-style attack will happen in NYC anytime soon. Mark my word on that.
The only way the terrorists win is if we become defeatist and cowardly as a society.
