The infamous Duke flop-charge call.
I have one season of YMCA youth soccer coaching under my belt. Yes. That's right. Sorry to break everyone's heart but I've got one foot in the door with that resume. 40k though? Let's talk Urbs.
That map sucked and so does *ichigan.
Thanks Jeremy. Always good stuff. Getting McDowell and keeping Jones would be a great finish for the year. UrbanTM is getting it done.
Never a doubt in my mind. :->
Craft made hayes look stupid. lol.
We got this!
WTH with the touch fouls?
They scouted Craft on that charge. He always drives hard with head down to the rack when the shot is clock running down. That charge was a result of that scouting.
This is turning into a YMCA youth soccer league where everyone gets a trophy.
UrbanTM is the only coach that Fowler calls by first name. Nuff said!
Edit: That's not a compression issue like I thought earlier, after actually looking at the image in the link.
That's a good book. We aren't trying to publish an article here. I suppose someone could recommend something that no one can understand and only two people have read? :)
Maybe he thought we should be ranked above them?
No conspiracy theorist here. Vrabel's hiring makes perfect sense! Perfect fit! But, if I'm OBrien, I am still going to have a smirk on my face that it all worked out so well. Vrabel fits, is the right man for the job, PLUS I get to disrupt Urban's staff as a bonus. Yeah. I'm smirking a little bit if I'm Obrien.
They forgot one qualification:
1) Must be able to run into a solid object head first, preferably a brick wall.
I hear you but that is why I said a direct but subtle shot at Urban. It makes perfect sense but you can't tell me that Obrien didn't quietly have a smirk on his face. After all, we thrashed them, and Obrien was visibly annoyed.
I think he threw a perfect sneaky punch. Just a thought.
Ha ha. My disclaimer. Just in
Great post. I can tell you from my experience that SAT/ACT/GRE or whatever score only measures where you are and not where you can go.
I think the book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell makes a great case for what it takes to be successful in anything. Help, opportunity, and busting your ass.
Spot on and right on! You were/are the CEO of your children's education, and it paid. The buck stops there so to speak. Kudos to you!
LOL. Thanks Butler. That gif is hilarious.
I'm warming up for Sunday!
By the way, my wife was a teacher in a really rough school. All 105 lbs of her..lol. She brought the parents of disruptive students into the classroom and gave them ownership of their child's education. It opened the parents and the child's eyes. You would be shocked at how well it worked!
I know what teachers go through and also know there are a some bad teachers too. But parents are the key.
"Test scores frequently tell us more about their high school than the individual."
I am getting a bit off topic here, but I had some thoughts.
I think it is less about the high school and more about the upbringing. Parents are ultimately responsible for their children, and they should be the ones to make sure their children are educated. They should sit down with their children everyday to go over homework and the day's lesson. If parents do this starting from Kindergarten, then it sets the tone for years to come.
In some schools, teachers are forced to focus more on behavior management than educating. Where are the parents of the disruptive children? I'll tell you where they are. They are in the teacher's grill blaming them for their kid's lack of education and poor behavior.
To be sure, you do get some bad teachers, but all in all the good 'ol US of A has so many opportunities to offer that go to waste. It makes me sick.
A good boot in the ass for some of these kids would help, but the parent should show the same commitment expected of the student.
Vrabel's leaving is a shot to the dangling nodes for sure, but I'm hopeful our coach can pull in another ringer.
Obrien's hiring of Vrabel seems to be tinted with a direct but yet subtle fark you to Urban.
Didn't O'Brien have some words with Urban after we thrashed PSU?...hmm...
