Clean cut is someone

  • who doesn't dress slovenly. 
  • has their hair reasonable - whether you have a fro, dreads, buzz cut, fade it looks reasonable neat
  • doesnt disrespect 

I don't have a problem with his clean cut statement. I think most high profile colleges want these types of kids because they "tend" to be better leaders. Not saying a kid dressed sloppy can't be a leader, rather it's not the norm.

Plus, this goes beyond sports and he wants clean cut kids who will most likely get around other type kids and go on to create businesses, Startups and be executives; then turn around and give back to their alma mater.

I think LaVar is a genius. 

Lets look at what he is doing:

  • he says his son his better than Curry
  • he says that he could beat MJ one on one
  • he's been invited on espn and fox talk shows.
  • he gets retweeted by popular people on twitter
  • he launches a shoe brand and articles are run on CNN, ESPN, WSJ, Forbes, Yahoo

Virtually everything he does and says creates buzz and press. I think he knows he's a loud mouth and people dislike him, but it's keeping his brand and his kids in the limelight.

I don't care for him personally, but I respect what he is trying to build

Your takes in this thread seem to be a bit off. When you say that our players aren't at the level of Bama players...does that exclude the record Ohio State set for the number of players drafted the first 3 rounds??

ok... something is not right

Greise said that in practice, he was running just fine in their last practice.

Peppers is not with the team on the sideline 

I bet he was suspended or did something to violate team rules, but Jimmy said to blame it on his hamstring.

I amazed that Jimmy didn't have him on the sideline helping his teammates and being a leader. A leader doesn't try and hide, they face the challenge and do their best to conquer it. 

That guy is a punk.

Peppers hasn't played in a bowl game since joining the skunk bears. 

He chickened out. Griese said he was fine in practice. Seems like hes trying to skip the game to help his draft status so he won't get exposed like he did against us

I don't think anyone "expected" to make the playoffs and finish in the top 4 after losing 12 players to the NFL. I think your expectations need to be adjusted a bit because it's not even realistic. 

The vast majority of experts, evaulators and fans thought that we would have 2-3 losses. Thinking we would make the playoffs is homerism at its best.

I don't agree with how you're defining "house money". I  understand that term to mean that the team that is playing with house money means that they are underdogs against an opponent they're supposed to lose to. They're playing loose because they weren't supposed to be here.

i think the team knows that they are ahead of schedule and they play with nothing to lose. The pressure is on Clemson more than the Bucks because they were supposed to be here and picked early on to win it all. 

I think that is the definition of house money
