Good find from the Peachtree in Atlanta. I love running in it even though this year it was extremely rainy. Unbelievable finish. The American had it in the bag, but the Brit took advantage of his pre mature celebration and beat him by a hair at the last second. Looks like Mark May celebrated a little early too.

Pretty much agree for the most apart. JT is good at everything, but his arm strength is very average. Most of the time this is irrelevant since he is such a great decision maker, but there were a few times when a little extra air on the ball would have really helped devin smith. Maybe this year it won't matter as much with smith gone and more short/middle of the field targets (Van, Samuel, Marshall, Dontre, Brown) emerging. With a wealth of young playmakers, having a QB with elite short/middle accuracy is what you want.

Position change is a possibility but I thought he might wait until August to do that. That would allow him to test his arm out and also evaluate the camp competition. If things aren't going well after a week and he thinks his chances are slim he could officially change positions and get some reps at H-back before the start of the season. Would be surprised if he just threw in the towel before the competition got started. Unless he truly believes that his shoulder is never going to be the same. Which seems like a real possibility. 

Comment 02 Jul 2015

Guess thats a possibility but I would be shocked if he entered. I don't think any team would want to draft him without knowing whether he can bounce back from his injury. Even if he has to change positions he would still benefit from coming back and proving he can stay healthy and make plays. Might as well stay at Ohio State and straighten the situation out rather than spent a year on some NFL teams practice squad.

I'm not sure which was worse. Harbaugh's interview or Tom Brady's press conference. These Michigan guys just need to stay in hiding

Comment 01 Jul 2015

I think his tweet only draws more attention to his blunder. If I was him I would have just moved on and acted as if I could care less. But Harbaugh is an ego maniac and somehow expects people to believe that Colin (who does interviews for a living) messed up as well. 

Comment 01 Jul 2015

Latest I heard is five years and $80 million. Thats a ton for a defensive specialist with a limited offensive game. He is a good player, but I think $65 million would have been closer to his real value.

A lot of teams will give near max contracts because of the cap inflation that will occur next year. Unfortunately, a max contract given to a slightly above average player is still a bad contract even with inflation. Heard rumblings Tristan Thompson may get close to max money. If that happens I will literally laugh for a good hour.

Yeah, I appreciate Chics thoughtful post but this is not the place. It was destined to get political. I'm from the south and I could go on for hours disputing inaccuracies and stereotypes that put the south in a negative light. 

Comment 01 Jul 2015

He definitely has some sort of mental condition or disability. His complete inability to answer open ended questions suggests either his brain isn't operating properly or maybe he has an anxiety problem. Also, his penchant for awkward social situations makes me wonder if he isn't mildly bi-polar. His outbursts are often unpredictable and he seems to have delusions of grandeur. His brother on the other hand seems to be a normal and fully functioning individual. There is just something wrong with Jim upstairs.

Its like in high school when you date a complete nutjob, but can't see it because you're blinded by her good looks. Then you inevitably break up and all your friends make fun of you for the next decade for dating a complete lunatic. If Harbaugh doesn't pan out, Michigan fans are going to feel like buffoons for years. San Francisco wanted to run him out on a rail for a reason. 

Comment 01 Jul 2015

I'm always amazed at the Mgodrones who think his press conference or media interviews are deliberate, clever, and planned.

Yeah, I just went over to Mgoblog for a second to get their reaction. Most are either accusing Cowherd of sabotaging Harbaugh or claiming that Harbaugh sunk that interview on purpose to screw Cowherd. Do they really believe that Harbaugh giving an awful interview would sink someone who has been on the air for years? Great strategy. Sound like freakin Frankenstein on the radio so that everyone will feel bad for you and revolt against Cowherd?? Yeah, great troll job Harbaugh! You knocked that one right out of the park!..... Michigan fans just need to accept that Harbaugh wears the media dunce cap. 

Comment 01 Jul 2015

I know we are pretty harsh on harbaugh sometimes, but that was dreadful. I feel bad for cowherd. He gave harbaugh sort of open ended questions to explore, but harbaugh couldn't explain anything. He has coached at both levels (NFL and college) and he can't articulate one sentence about how they are different? Harbaugh may be able to coach, but he is an extremely awkward individual. Worst part was the end when Colin asked him to sell his program like urban and there was just total silence. Its like Harbaugh got paralyzed by fear or something and couldn't muster any words. If he wasn't such an ego maniac I might actually feel bad for him. That interview was a shit show.

This is why I despise twitter. Jim, nobody cares that you got a drivers license. Its not that cool. Thousands of people do it every single day. Whats next? You going to tweet that you got a double cheeseburger at McDonalds or that you took a dump at approximately 9:35 PM? Why do people feel the need to broadcast every single mundane detail of their life. 

Comment 30 Jun 2015

Best answer I have seen on the board. This past year we were somehow able to get by with a bad kicker, but eventually we will be in a game when we have to kick a 45 yarder to win it. Nugent was good from 55. 

Comment 26 Jun 2015

Not shocked at all to read this. Everyone heard about Harbaugh's shirtless escapade and people would just say, "well crazy Jim is just passionate about the kids." The truth is that crazy Jim is only passionate about his own ego. Jim is passionate about his players as long as he thinks they are going to get him closer to a championship. Pipkins wasn't going to contribute so Jim decided it was time to give him the boot. As time goes on I'm confident more and more people will see just how much of a ego maniac Harbaught truly is.

For a second I thought the guy in black was Bobby Carpenter. In which case you know he was going for the assist. 

Comment 25 Jun 2015

There should be an ESPY for most inspiring team. What this years team did against all odds was truly a spectacle deserving of recognition.
