If this kid is a walk on I could see Urban doing a Landmark Fire. Basically, he is not going to kick a top recruited player or star player off the team for this violation but a walk on guy? I say he won't be playing for OSU next year.
I am so sick of this crap. Public schools complaining because they think things are unfair. The last time I checked Glenville was sending more kids to DI in football than any other school and yet they can't beat St. Eds or Iggy. Glenville has another school called Ginn Academy, what the heck is that? State Championships are not what is important. Sit back and think about it, kids transfer schools because they want to get seen or noticed or mom and drive are driving the push because of athletics. Do kids who don't play sports transfer because one school has a better science department than the others, usually not. What is missing in all of this is these PARENTS/kids don't see that academics is what matters most. Having smarts, a good education is what matters. Less than 1% of athletes go pro and make money from sports. When are PARENTS/kids going to be educated on what is really important?
In all seriousness I think the Cavs take Parker and do something big in free agency. I don't know who that player will be but It will be a good player. First thing is first though, which coach are they going to get? I think that will determine who they select and who they can get in free agency.
The Cleveland Cavs select Colt McCoy or Brandon Weeden. Wait, I am sorry, The Cavs select Anthony Bennett, oh wait, they already have him. The Cavs select Jamie Jamie Jamie Jamie 8th grader out of Alaska. Either way, the Cavs will screw this up.
BrewstersMillions, I am not saying LeBron is not a great player. I just think he is a quitter (can be proven), ring chaser (can be proven), attention seeker (can be proven), etc....
I would of loved to have seen this guy play back in the 80's and early 90's when players were not getting fined and assessed with flagrant fouls. I would of liked to seen LeBron attack the hoop with Charles Barclay, Horace Grant, Shawn Kemp, Charles Oakley, Bill Lambeer, Rick Mahorn, etc... protecting the middle. I know one thing, he wouldn't attack the hoop as aggressive as he does now. Over an 82 game season and playoffs, that is alot of bumps and bruises he would have taken.
Wonder how long it will be before ESECPN decides Urban Meyer is to blame for this
RDUBS, He is ME ME ME when it comes to media spotlight. He has to comment on everything. If his name is not being mentioned then he has to say something to stay relevant. On the court he is not a ME ME ME player but off the court, he always has to do something to stay in the spotlight. Example, the Treyvon Martin case and he deciding his teammates should take a photo with hoodies on, or the Clippers (when they took their warmups off and put them in the center court and wore their gear inside out for pregame) when they did that, why did LeBron and the Miami do it? I don't remember any other team doing it. To me it just seems like he loves the attention and SEEKS the attention.
If he is so great, why did he have to leave in the prime of his career to join up with another superstar? It wouldn't be too difficult to win championships when you are playing with 2 other all stars. I believe guys like Jordan and Kobe only had one other superstar on their squad (Jordan Pippen, Kobe Shaq). He can put up all the stats he wants, but playing with Wade and Bosh can really help your numbers.
Working the referees is one thing but constantly crying about every foul is little ridiculous. It is so funny that he drives to the lane and no one stops him, he dunks it then he gets excited but when that boy from the Bobcats fouled him while he was going to the hoop LeBron got all mad as if to say "I am LeBron, and you shouldn't foul me when I am driving to the hoop". Why does LeBron feel so entitled?
As far as Kobe and Iverson and even Jordan, they have all said the same thing, "I am not getting paid millions upon millions of dollars to pass the ball during crunch time. Sometimes I make the shots and sometimes I don't, but they pay me to shoot."
LeBron is a great player but I don't care for him at all. Watch his facial and body language during games and he is nothing but a cry baby. He must think he is the only player in the NBA to never commit a foul. He must also think that he is the only player that goes to the hoop and miss and it should be a foul. He dominates games but complains way too much. Every time he gets fouled why does he always hold his face, he is known for flopping and traveling. He is a physical specimen but come on LeBron just play the game the way it is supposed to be played. If you are such a basketball historian as you preach then you will realize that the great players in the past didn't wine or complain as much as you do. Quit being all about ME ME ME and wanting the lime light and play the game pure, not for entertainment so you can be on ESPN all the time and they can keep reminding you how great you are.
The DB coach coaches based on the overall defensive scheme. The DB's can't play pressed coverage if the Defensive Coordinator doesn't call for it. I place the blame on the Defensive Coordinator. I am still confused on how in the hell you blitz but play soft coverage? It makes no sense at all. In that scenario the defensive coaches are not even giving the DB's a chance to make a play. Think about it, blitz comes and the receiver has an 8 yard cushion. Whats the point in blitzing then?
ONE QUESTION I HAVE IS THIS: So, if an NBA player goes home and knows that he is being recorded and uses racial slurs, is he going to get a lifetime ban and fined too? I agree with what the commissioner did, no doubt it was swift and zero tolerance. I just don 't think we fully know the ramifications of this until someone else does or says something as stupid as Sterling said.
It's not a Palindrome but Naomi spelled backwards is "I moan"
I believe he is a frosh or soph. On the roster is says #91 is Chris Rock but on the back of the jersey Saturday it said Parry. I saw on Facebook post from a friend that he was a walkon and I was shocked, so when I started looking I saw #91 and Parry on the back of the jersey. I was impressed too. He has decent size that is for sure
I think Russell could start at the 2 guard. Thad will sub him out after about 7 minutes. Give him a two minute break then sub him back in for Scott to run the point. Starting lineup could be PG: Scott, SG: Russell, Forward/Guard (3): Thompson, The 4 or Power Forward: The Recruit from Temple and at Center: Williams. Loving coming off the bench with Diop and Jackson.
Napoleon Dynamite I thought was really bad. I know a lot of people liked it but I just didn't get the meaning of the movie.
Okie St over Arizona
What an A$$CLOWN
I have said this for years that year in and year out the BIG 10 has the top ten combo programs in the country. I keep looking at Ohio State as the best in the past what, 15 years. Michigan State has us in basketball probably but in football I don't believe they have had the success that OSU has had in the last 15 years.
National Signing Day (Football)
First Football Game of The College Season
Classic, I love it. Way to do something different.
William, I take it you were at the game then? You actually saw kids cramping up? Why not just call the game then and finish it up the next day? There has to be a better solution then just to declare both teams State Champions.
Craft is the one player I would want in my fox hole. That kid is so tough. I still believe there is a place for him on an NBA. I believe he could be the type of player that could run the second unit and bring a sense of toughness to a NBA team. He is not a behavior problem, very smart, and brings a blue collar work ethic with him. The one problem would be his teammates, maybe, getting upset with him because he brings it in every practice and game. It would be that Rudy syndrome (Dial it down a bit. LOL).
It just goes back to how this country is today. Every child gets a trophy now. Kids get babied and told how great they are. The parents/adults are ruining this whole sports thing. Unreal, two state champions. Kids are more resilient than you think. I would have to think that these kids are upset. I am sure they are happy they got a state title but they will never know if they were truly the best.
If you thought our defense was bad last year, does anyone actually think it would be better under Chip Kelly? His Oregon team never knew how to play defense or tackle. Against the weak teams they looked good but against Standford and in bowl games, they were bad.
