yes, bridges over troubled waters
try recording a discussion like this in any competitive sport then setting foot in another locker room as long as you live. absolutely cowardly on the kid's part.
only on account of villainy!
this is absolutely a 100% serious allegation and the correct action was taken. there is a line between college fun and inappropriate action from the administration, and that line was obviously crossed here.
as far as everyone's responses to the situation:
if our country wasn't inundated with the PC police (see the firing of Gee for a prime example), we wouldn't see nearly as many of the insensitive reactions we have here to a situation that IS actually serious. true, serious issues (like this) should be dealt with harshly and swiftly. the problem is, for every one of these, there are ten stupid non-situations that everyone gets butthurt about just so they can feel morally superior to everyone else.
Not sure how a 7% chance of going undefeated is disrespectful. That's over an 80% chance of winning each individual game. Or, if you count MSU as a 50% chance, it's about an 84% individual chance of winning each of the remaining games. Florida State's 40.3% is ridiculous. That's about a 93% individual chance per game.
The takeaway? Going undefeated is HARD.
i'm not going to crucify a cable company for not carrying cbs sports network. i am a huge fan of almost all sports and haven't watched it for more than 30 seconds at a time EVER. they couldn't have worse programming on there if they tried. making a bad business decision by picking cbssn up based on 3.5 hours on one saturday isn't something we should expect a cable company to do. great, you make your customers happy for one buckeye game so we can watch our defense get cut blocked all game (hopefully no serious injuries) by a gimmicky, dangerous offense, but then end up having to raise rates and then, in turn, get killed by your customers again? cable companies do a lot of dumb stuff, but not carrying cbs sports network isn't one of them.
the only way you don't do this now is if you get solid intel that klove is willing to openly refuse to sign anywhere else, and then as the trade deadline approaches, all of a sudden you have the twolves' nuts in a vice. trade klove on your terms, or lose him for nothing at the end of the season.
this is so beautiful. germany 5 diving squad 0
watson's would be a much better nickname if her name was tiffany instead of emma
the fact that i had to pause and think for a legit 10 seconds before answering beckman tells me all i need to know about hoke's job security
ha niskanen is #2 too which makes it even better
i don't think ive ever watched a game where the refs should have cost my team the game, but my team didn't allow them to and lost on their own anyway. we'll never know if that BS one minute of stoppage time cost us. what im saying is, screw the french.
that said, heck of a run. proud of the team and what a bright future. hopefully timmy plays again in 2018.
chances of ryan timmons transferring from kentucky to ohio st
So you don't follow any professional sports? Winning 60% of your games in MLB is considered a fantastic record and is a lock for the playoffs. 60% will also get you into the NFL, NBA, and NHL playoffs most any year.
What makes this comment even funnier is that to win the English Premier League title, considered the best soccer league in the world, the past three years, you would have had to take 75%, 78%, and 78% of the points available to you. Anything less, no title.
In "American" sports (other than baseball), you typically get a chance at the championship if you win anything more than 50% of your games. Many 9-7 teams that barely made the playoffs have won Super Bowls.
The similarity between Little Miss Muffett and Saddam Hussein was that they both had Kurds in their whey.
WHERE DO WE GO TO CUT DOWN THE NETS?????????????????? #crean
yeah things could get messi
Longest possible FIFA sanction is 24 months. Minimum, he'll get 4 games to ensure he doesn't play again this WC. I think it goes more toward the 24 month side though given the repeat offender status. He might get something from the English FA too. I usually despise Italy for their diving and petulance, but found myself rooting for them yesterday. I hope Uruguay gets destroyed next round.
I'll take The Rapists for $200!!!!!!!!!!
That stuff already happens anyway (see Manziel, Jonathan). Hate to liken it to this, but eventually it will be like what happens to the black market when you legalize a drug. All of a sudden the back room deals go away because the market can now set the price. Sure, you'll still have boosters paying kids, but that will always happen anyway regardless of anything anybody tries to regulate.
I've said this many times on this site, but I'll say it again. Let the kids benefit off their names and likenesses, but pay no additional stipend/salary. That accomplishes two ideal goals.
1) The elite players, the ones that make the universities the big bucks, get paid by advertisers and merchandisers in accordance with their value (let the MARKET set the value instead of some arbitrary stipend, salary, whatever you want to call it).
2) It takes the burden off the smaller universities. If football is split in to pay/not pay divisions based on the schools that can afford it, the main revenue stream for smaller D1 schools, which is games against the big boys, is gone and probably so are the full rides for their players. This way, the non-elite players don't lose their full rides just so the big schools can pay their players. Let the advertisers spend the money for them.
robbery by the cbj. unbelievable move. what is philly thinking? usually when a player asks for a trade it takes all the leverage away from his team. this deal is at least an even swap, and i'd argue even favors columbus. kudos to management
yeah netherlands only has 3 regulars in the lineup. this morning's games are terrible. hopefully croatia-mexico will be incredible. these third group games today are hit or miss - either everything on the line or absolutely nothing on the line
ha agreed, names these days are nuts
a couple of my favorites: shithead, pronounced shith-eed and also le-a, pronounced ledasha
still remember going to see borat there the week of the penn st game in '06 and coming out of the theater to see the remnants of a huge fight, complete with two paddy wagons full of people (including girls in 6 inch heels). hopefully they don't clean it up so much that the fun goes with it!
