Football cleats yes.  I bought them for $60 so I just would like to be able to get that back.  Whats your email?  It will be easier if you want them.

Hey man I actually have some size 14's I just ordered from the OSU athletic site.  I bought an extra pair if you might be interested?

Would rookie contacts be much larger in 2015?  Overall salary cap is expected to increase by $20-30 MM or so, however rookies are paid out on a sliding scale (+/- 20% of the predetermined expected value based on draft position).  The scale is already set up until 2017.(http://www.cbafaq.com/scale2011.htm)  Not sure if the new agreement would result in rookies scale being adjusted or not.  Can anyone confirm?

Per NCAA Bylaw 14.2.4  "A student-athlete may be granted an additional year of competition by the conference or the Committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement for reasons of “hardship.” Hardship is defined as an incapacity resulting from an injury or illness..."

Not sure where everyone is getting this "can't play ever again" stigma.  Now OSU doctors may have told Dean that he wouldn't play anymore at OSU but that is in no way the definition of a medical hardship.

Valid arguments I just don't see the value in playing 10 cupcake teams to start every season?  You really think the team grows from padding their stats and just being physically more talented than the other teams?  Lot of sleepwalking going on in November and December.  

Sidenote UNC played Butler and Davidson as well as Florida who obviously did not make the tourney.  They went for it all this year.  Props to them.

Also very fucking true.  Specifically saw one group pour beer on a girls head during the bucks game bc she interupted their "Flyers chant" when Zona went on their second half run to beat us.  I love passionate fan bases.  This was less passionate, more lets act like douchenozzles because we beat OSU last year and want to make sure people remember us.

North Carolina played 8 non-conference tournament bound opponents 

Kentucky played 7

Wisconsin played 6

VCU played 6

UCLA played 5

Gonzaga played 5

NC State played 5

Utah played 4

Ohio State played 2

Last year MSU played Kentucky, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Texas and Georgetown out of conference.  

Don't be so cavalier.  This is an issue.

Fact of the matter is this years senior class was "stunted" by Aaron Crafts outstanding leadership.  Their first three years they were role players who chipped in where they could and looked to Craft when things got tough.  This couldnt be more obvious when this season rolled around and DRuss and Tate were the only leaders on the floor.  This off-season the team missed Crafts ever present leadership.  Hopefully Tate can help fill that void this summer.

So you'd rather skate by on an over-inflated, bloated win total and get knocked out first weekend? Tough early non-con games are important.  Playing the same Big Ten teams certainly toughens a team up, but it doesn't expose young players to different playing styles across the country.  Wisconsin, Iowa, Purdue, MSU etc. all play similar styles of basketball.  A team needs to see firsthand other styles of play to arm themselves for the tournament.

Can't knock Thad too much.  One area where a change is definitely needed is Non-Conference scheduling.  The head coach in college basketball has MUCH more influence in scheduling compared to football coaches.  Just look at Izzo.  Constantly challenges his team early to show them where they realistically stand against elite competition.  Come March MSU is always a serious threat regardless of talent.  Beating NCAT&T by 30 every Tuesday and Friday for the first two months of the season doesn't help anyone.

Off course Hardy would fit right in with the rest of the Bengal jailbirds.  Perfect Fit

DJ, I lived at 1824 Summit my senior year of college (2013).  Some older dudes walked in one day when we were all day drinking and started spouting off about some dude getting stabbed in our kitchen a few years back.  Ring any bells?
