Tiger has been on a slow decline since he switched to Nike clubs. The only reason I think he can still turn it around is the way he can get around a course when he's not hitting it well. His ability to finish in the top 20 on a bad weekend is remarkable. When he's on, he's still better than anyone else. He just isn't on for more than a round or two anymore.
Yes and no. I'm an avid golfer and I really love golf. I rarely watch on tv when Tiger isn't playing. The sport is ok without him, but there would be slow decline. Like him or not, he makes it more interesting. Golf survived before him and it will outlive him. There's not really anyone else to take over his popularity right now. The media tries forcing Rory and Rickie Fowler into that role, but neither of them are ready for that.
As long as Tiger comes back soon, it'll be golf.
Considering how popular the tatgate scandal was, they could be doing a follow-up piece. I can understand being a little caught off-guard, but I don't see any reason to automatically assume there are ulterior motives.
As Athletic Director, Gene gets bonuses based on performance of the athletes. Honestly, I'd be more concerned if he got a bonus for academic accomplishments.
Usually opponents for the current season.
So...as a 1-iron he's virtually impossible to use but deadly when he works out?
Win over some fans and ruffle some feathers of animal rights activists. Sounds like a win.
You do realize that all profits are donated to charity right? Greedy bastards.
Very close. I'm younger and married. I understand the family scenario. I remember in previous years, kids under a certain age were free. I haven't heard anything about that this year, though. I guess from my experience, the spring game is for the more "hardcore" fans. I've been to the game with my wife and with other casual fans. It's usually a pretty miserable experience. My point is, bringing the whole family isn't necessarily a good idea at $5 per ticket.
Anyway, $80 for a family of 4 is still the cheapest you'll ever get them in The Shoe. I'm trying to be careful how I word some of this as to not sound like an asshole. Being a sports fan is never cheap. That goes for any level and any sport. It's not fair and there's no charity. There's a lot of things I can't afford or can't justify spending money on, that's a problem for me. I don't think Porsche prices are stupid or unfair just because I can't afford them.
So you'd rather eat three steaks than watch the spring game? Cool.
Sounds like they have him nailed if they can prove their claims. Everything sounds good until it mentions him asking the dealer to arrange the cards a certain way. Even then, I think the dealer and card manufacturer deserve equal blame.
That's your opinion, man. What else are you going to do for $20 to entertain you for 2-3 hours? When you look at it in comparison to the years it was $5, it seems expensive. When you look at it as a discounted opportunity to take-in some football in The Shoe, it makes more sense. Unless you can find a quality hooker for twenty bucks, you're not going to find more entertainment for your money.
That's pretty lame.
There's been a lot of complaining about the price, and I really don't get it. For $20 you can watch a 3d movie with popcorn or go to the spring game. Easy choice.
I'm curious to hear Birm, or anyone else close to recruits, weigh in on this.
Just when I think the article is written by someone with a brain, you reveal the rest of the top 5.
He's right after Mark Dantonio.
Since I'm also a Rod Smith fan, every other fan gets an upvote.
I think 50k will be easy. Don't forget, they always seem to inflate the attendance number over what actually seems to be there.
2 upvotes to counter some overly sensitive people.
I disagree. Just like the AP poll "didn't matter" before. Humans will be involved in determining the playoff. I assume the committee will still use polls as a tool in determine the top 4.
If only there was a union lawyer to fight the case for him.
UConn isn't an AAU school. In other words, not happening.
