Also of note, that hack by iggy would have been his 6th and draymond's two fouls on the tip would have been his 5th and 7th. Great officiating!

Klay Thompson had a career game for the Warriors on Sunday and Steph had 19 points and they still lost. They splash brothers had 4-6 more points than their 14-15 postseason average on Sunday (I did the math yesterday and don't remember the numbers). This "steph didn't play well" narrative is so busted by everyone forgetting klay Thompson had a career night. 

Edit: I see great minds think alike

I was at the pickerington central moeller game on Saturday and two players were light years better than everybody else: jake hausmann and Davon Hamilton. Hamilton consistently blew up guys on the moeller line and wreaked havoc in moeller's backfield. Without him and some excellent pint (edit:punt) returning, pick central would have lost that game by about 20

And here is the response I posted to you earlier "When looking at the study above that jackfu cited to show that budgets are demonstrably false is not a study on athletic departments as a whole but only revenue generating sports. It notes specifically that there is money if you reduce the salaries of coaches and stop renovating facilities. In this hypothetical scenario where revenue generating athletes are paid, athletic departments will have to make a decision, kept paying your coaches and upgrading your facilities to keep your revenue generating sports strong or cut your men's and women's rowing teams."  Further, the fact that some analyst said so in a report to help support a lawsuit doesn't really mean a lot.  I know from first hand experience that you can get a lot of people with good credentials to write whatever you want for lawsuits.  It does not mean its the truth.

I don't think people are concern trolling about the fans of rowing. They (I?) are just saying that it is a possible or likely consequence that a bunch of other student athletes will lose scholarships. If you are okay with that I can't disagree but it's hard to act like it won't happen.

When looking at the study above that jackfu cited to show that budgets are demonstrably false is not a study on athletic departments as a whole but only revenue generating sports. It notes specifically that there is money if you reduce the salaries of coaches and stop renovating facilities. In this hypothetical scenario where revenue generating athletes are paid, athletic departments will have to make a decision, kept paying your coaches and upgrading your facilities to keep your revenue generating sports strong or cut your men's and women's rowing teams.

Whether or not you need to pay the participants in lacrosse rowing wrestling etc, it would not make financial sense to keep those programs around at the expense of weakening your revenue generating sports. To stay competitive when every school is allowed to pay a player the same maximum amount, coaches and facilities will be the selling points just as they are now. 

I believe this is the concern people have with paying football players and basketball players. It is nice to imagine a world where you would just cut the football coaches salary to pay for the rowing team, but when the coach leaves and the players won't come to support your only two revenue streams you will lose all financial stability.

Because they didnt lose a single game when he played quarterback for the team. he didn't miss a single B1G game, and his statistics are likely better than any other quarterback in the league.

Comment 15 Nov 2013

Yea I was gonna say the same thing. Terrelle is still the starter and he took the first team walk through but he is a bit banged up

Comment 08 Nov 2013

I was bothered by the fact that the announcers were giving DAT crap for smiling on the sidelines when the game wasnt over.  Meanwhile, praising Huff for crying when they still had a chance.  It aint over till its over (or you are down 30 to Bama).

Comment 08 Nov 2013

What made their statements last night even more absurd was that they were saying this with 5-6 minutes left in the game.  I didnt listen to them after the game ended and Stanford didnt close very well.

DO YOU SMELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL WHAT THE VRABO.....................................IS COOKING?

Sathey: you said

If I were Urban Meyer I would make it mandatory that my players do not leave their homes (apartment, dorm, house) unless its for football, family, or school! For the whole time they are at OSU! No exceptions!

That is not a curfew, that is prison.  While I do not agree with a curfew either, you certainly advocated something beyond what the OP stated.

Comment 22 Jul 2013

There is no way Roby's arrest for misdemeanor battery costs him millions if he plays well.  A misdemeanor assault on a bouncer is not going to change his draft position unless there is more to this story than punching a bouncer.

Comment 22 Jul 2013

I couldn't agree more.  Hopefully the facts in his arrest can be reduced to something that doesn't effect the whole season for the rest of the guys who arent out making stupid decisions.

Comment 22 Jul 2013

I get what you are saying, I just feel like making it about the time is a lazy way to analyze a situation. Its not about the time at all. It is about the actions of people. And while I certainly understand your data, I dont think it actually shows the relationship you are trying to prove.  That evidence shows that when people want to murder somebody, it usually happens at night, when it is easier to be incognito.  That is totally different from the assumption that a person will do bad things once it hits midnight.

Comment 20 May 2013

It is kind of concerning that it has been 3 straight years now where we have had a player in the top 10 of body fat percentage.  Buford had an 11.3, second highest in his draft.  It's hard to pin body fat percentage at the draft on the school's trainers/dieticians but it does make you wonder.
