Thank you both! I recall 11W had the news last year; wanted to make sure I didn't miss it.
Anyone know when general admission tickets go on sale?
It seems like certain teams have been replaced in the "top 5" realm. UM by UF and now FSU. Washington by Oregon and Nebraska seems to have been replaced by Oklahoma. I'm sure if any of those storied programs (Washington may be a stretch as "storied", but them and Colorado had some good years when I was younger) land a huge name coach, stuff changes - see Bama's comeback from relative obscurity until Saban as an example.
It doesn't seem like y'all like Spencer Hawes. What's not to like? The dude shot 45% for us beyond the arc and pulls about 8rbs a game. Sure Lebron and/or Love would be factiastic, but this dude can ball and I think he should be on our "must-sign" list. Even if the perfect scenario of getting LBJ back doesn't work, I like our chances with our pieces now plus Jabari or Wiggins (a 3 that can play both sides of the floor).
I like where you head is at. I'm a huge Love fan. That said, the Wolves are operating from a position of weakness right now with him bascially saying he is ready to leave. He will not be back in Minn. once that contract is up. Due to that, I don't think the #1 pick AND 4/5 assets is necessary. Perhaps just the #1 pick and a player or two. I actually like Waiters as a player, but he seems like a locker room issue. Maybe that's good enough to make it happen in a sign/trade. Waiters could be a 20+ppg guy in this league with enough minutes.
I logged in JUST to up vote this post.
I love that players are using the legal system/rights to make their case, but I don't agree with their premise. Don't wanna play foosball and become beloved by current and former alumni? Don't play foosball and be a regular tuition paying student like everyone else (IF you could even get accepted at the school...).
Yeah, but his speed was underrated, if I remember correctly. Nothing pissed me off more than getting caught in a race to turn the corner by a DL. That would NEVER happen to the real TP.
I have never heard of coffee before a workout before. Seeing as it's a vascular constrictor, I don't understand how it would help. What is the scientific rationale?
DJ on the board and going strong! You don't like Teddy? He won with less talent and throws it accurately all over the yard.
Then we take more OL protection with late first, then get Carlos in early second. Thoughts?
Great list! Coincidentally, I would add Seattle and the Pacific Northwest (including the Redwoods.. 300ft trees?? Awesome). Would trade off Beijing and Sydney though. Don't think I can handle a 20+ hour plane ride from the east coast of Merica'.
Btw, what is that Cape Town icon?
In this age of how-to videos on the internet, it is a much easier feat. When I was a kid, I just peeled off the color stickers and "solved" it that way. Twisted or peeled, the finished product looked the same on my dresser.
I really like Aaron and appreciate all he has given to the university. That said, can he please spend more time making shots than performing cube tricks? Thx.
Love all those guys, but I think that picture is a little incomplete unless it has snaps/games played. If I'm not mistaken, Rolle had to sit behind the Beast for a few years before he got his major playing time.
Thanks, Cinserious. I must have missed that one. Folks seem to be so caught up in the other great ones that Rolle's name is frequently omitted. The dude was a stone in the middle and made a bunch of solid, fundamental plays - exactly what we are currently missing.
I guess it must be. Perhaps they should call it - Assistant TO the HC as opposed to Asst. HC then.
Every job I've been at the Asst. (or Deputy) Director or President was always higher than the various department heads - or even division heads, but perhaps Urban's crew does it a little different than everything I've seen.
I know the real world works where your next salary is usually based on your previous one, but does Ash deserve more money than LJ Sr? Isn't LJ Sr's resume and title greater in quality??
I think I'm a little bothered by this, so any comments to provide me with some perspective on why Ash deserves 20% more (other than because he had gotten paid something similar in the past) would be great.
Anyone else really, really hate Sam's high school uniform? The letter is nasty and the colors are even worse. Granted, it doesn't have that ridiculous "wing" on the helmet, but geez.
Aka, the "nuclear option"
Agree, BH. Even in that case, however, don't you think Urbs would have given him some time on the bench for a mental lapse that hurt the team? Not saying it's totally warranted in this case, but UFM is trying to reform his national image a bit. Plus good kids with solid parents probably want to see an HC that is going to give fair discipline to their college-aged sons when they don't make good adult decisions.
Good point, but I see them as one in the same. Wanna F with us and try to suspend our players... see you in court where we can get a fair trial. You scerrrred? Then back up and let us run our own damn team. Urbs has proven he is willing to dish out suspensions when prudent.
I love the idea that they're suing. A lot of these kids from less fortunate backgrounds get screwed by the NCAA because they cannot afford to take legal recourse. Meanwhile JFF gets away with selling autographs in with hard physical evidence because he has a couple great legal eagles in ten gallon hats ready to beat the crap out of the NCAA. It's about time we lawyered up against the NCAA. I'm tired of getting the shaft while the rest of the country side steps any and all penalties because they are willing and able to fight for their rights.
Not five minutes after FSU closed the deal last night, ESPiN put up the graphic about the previous champions who happen to be in the SEC. It was pathetic.
I reject this question. The SEC has not won any championships. Bama, LSU, UF, and Aub have. Don't be tricked by the narrative.
I think they're realistic with themselves that if you can't beat out your college teammates for playing time, you likely wouldn't be beating out people in the pros. This team is very deep with dudes who can make plays with the ball. Good thing we have a system where we distribute it. Granted, Brax is such a weapon that he gets a ton of carriers too, but once he is gone, I think we will be looking for Kenny G types who get other dudes the ball in space.
