A couple thoughts watching PSU / UCF...

Bill Belton is one of those players that seem like they've been there for 10 years. 

Kenny Mayne is the best thing to come out of ESPN.....by a mile.

How to ruin a mock fantasy draft

This had me laughin out loud early in the morning.  Thanks for that WMD.

There is no such thing as an awful beer.  Just  beer that doesn't taste as good as other beer.

The "free site/go somewhere else" argument is fine, but I think there's always room for suggestions for the staff.

No sense in becoming complacent with the content, even if it's free.

TIL: There is something called a Marlins Charlie Hough Good Guy Award, and D-Train snagged it in 2006.  

Edit Add: You could also argue that he was a decent offensive weapon too.  Career numbers include .244 AVG, .287 OBP, 9 HR.  Definitely nothing to sneeze at.  And it was a competitive advantage being in the NL, where managers wouldn't have to take him out later in the game to sub in a better hitter.

Cowherd's formula....

1) think of an opinion

2) find some obscure fact that supports that opinion, while at the same time ignoring other more pertinent facts

3) integrate it's correlation with tv ratings

4) dismiss all other opinions

That skull session photo tho....

Medicine ball game looks like a great time.  A bunch of dudes in their jockeys slappin a big ol ball around.  Sign me up.

I agree with Patriot.  The fun of sports is hating on other teams.  But when stupid people do stupid things, and it ends up screwing things up, that's not something fans deserve. 

penn state fans suck, but they don't deserve sanctions on their team due to a piece of scum pedophile.

Jonathon is my favorite internet star....bar none.  I always pull the reference whenever I see a turtle, and end up getting the ol' eye roll from the wife.  Hope she's ready for another 50 years of it.

Those were very PC answers.  No need to ruffle up any possible playoff opponent feathers.

If you spent some time in Ashland, and this professionally made advertisement is any indication, I think I'll like you...

Just because you don't see them post numbers on a stat line doesn't mean they don't have value.  I would think alot of the roster contributes to things like scout team, special teams, and just position insurance in case of injury/academics.

And besides, if you end up with a roster of (hypothetically) 70 future NFL athletes, probably 40 of them are going to transfer because they don't get playing time.

I would say the odds of major universities or companies not having your information already are slim to none.  

I would lean towards the crowd control issue on this one.  They'll have to assign a certain number of security guards, food/drink vendors, police, etc.  It might be a good idea to have a ballpark figure if you want to hire that kind of workforce for a free event.
