If you're really assessing our weakness, I'd say it's an obsession with Torrance Gibson.
The star system is flawed. When a 3 star like AJ Hawk excels, it's pretty easy to recognize. But when a 5 star struggles, people typically ask what's wrong. Like they aren't working hard enough or something.
It's not like he gave himself a 5 star rating. He seems like a good kid that's putting forth his best effort. Best of luck to him on his senior season.
I don't like the Spring idea, but there should be a separation. Why not make a mid-major championship? Only the power 5 teams are going to get the 4 playoff spots anyway, so instead of just bowls for everyone else, why not a 4 team mid-major championship?
Then conferences like the MAC have something to legitimately shoot for - other then trying to get a BCS bid against a team with 20 times the resources. And I'd think more people would watch a mid-major championship/playoff than just some random bowl games.
I'm a MAC grad. There have been some pretty good teams over the past 10-15 years in the conference, but nothing that could seriously challenge the top teams from the B1G, SEC, etc.
Sorry if this was posted somewhere else, but a nice interview with EGW:
Well, if you trust these defensive stats, Love was barely ahead of TT last year. He also ranked behind Oladipo, who Wiggins should be able to match.
Love can guard Duncan or Howard? Um, no. Regardless of a trade, that will be Andy's job.
Answer: we're boned.
Love is 6 10 with a 6 11 wingspan. Wiggins is 6 8 with a 7 foot wingspan and a 44 inch vertical leap.
If you want size, keep Wiggins.
So if he goes to PSU and beats OSU, you'll be happy about that?
Never feel sorry for your competition.
Allegedly LeBron is pushing this. However, we know he has a connection to Tristan Thompson, and he specifically mentioned TT in his letter back.
I'm not trying to say he's in Love's class, I'm just saying I wonder if LeBron is really pushing for this. On one had, LBJ/Kyrie/Love makes them contenders right now, and Love is only 25.
On the other hand, you may be trading away the next great player in the league. And if he is a lockdown defender, that frees up LeBron from taking on those duties all the time.
Welcome to the big time David Griffin.
Since McKayla didn't win the gold in vault, should I trust the rest of the facts?
They can have our leftovers.
I have been to an In-n-Out. The way people hype it up, you can't help but be let down a little. I mean it's good for fast food, but people act like it's the best burger you'll ever eat.
It's ironic that for each state they chose a really beautiful picture. Except Oklahoma. A twister is about to kill everyone.
When you're the top dog, everyone treats you like a rival. There's one rival, and everyone else in the B1G is a secondary.
Sorry if I missed this somewhere, but is this open to the public? I'd like to check this out this year.
If they sink much lower, they'll have a live wolverine mascot named Swagger.
Very happy with how he's doing, but is anyone else sick seeing him in those colors? Come on Cavs, fix this injustice.
Wiggins has been playing summer ball for a week and already has two viral videos.
A year ago they were a mess, now they might have the most exciting team in professional sports. Crazy.
If we're waiting for the B1G to recruit better than the SEC, we're going to be waiting a while. We just added Rutgers for crying out loud.
We need OSU to keep delivering top-5 caliber classes, and a few other B1G teams to stay top-15/20 worthy so we can get into the playoff.
But if you're waiting for Illinois, Purdue, Indiana, etc. to step it up... well, good luck with that.
Why don't they go all in? Why just a hideously stupid trophy? They should name the two semi-finalists "Leaders" and "Legends".
Keep working hard. You need to do a good job covering Thad's first National Championship. The second one will be easier.
So they ruined the one good thing about the BCS?
Come on Cavs, ditch Dellavedova and sign Craft. LeBron and Craft on one team - Ohio won't be able to function.
