  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

Probably helps in that it dampens any theory that she is trying to make money off of him. The DNA should be the crucial evidence here. No, it does not necessarily mean rape if DNA is found, but it completely blows up Conley's and the other witnesses' story that nothing happened and he did not have sex with her. No DNA and I think this will blow over quickly, if not quickly enough.

True. Seems like a large leap from "didn't have sex with her" to "OK, had sex with her, but it was consensual" if DNA is found. I think that would be pretty hard to overcome, however, if found. It would sure color my thinking, anyway. But we're not there yet.

he was friendly and smiled the entire time even though he said little

You and your wife got off easy. It's not pretty. I met him years ago and conversation (like coordinating nouns, verbs, and adjectives into sensible chunks) was quite a challenge for him.

Anybody have an update on when he may announce, or are we on "hold your horses" mode? Seems like we are on the cusp of finding out some really big answers to our 2018 D recruiting with Cox, Gant, and, suddenly, Parsons all on the clock to some degree.

Comment 23 Apr 2017

The posts on the 247 site did seem very pro-Irish in regards to Gant's visit. It seems like when guys are going to go ND, they do it at the end of the trip; they've completely guzzled the Kool-Aid. Any time that passes after his visit ends would seem to be in our favor. I feel the same way about out-of-state guys who visit Columbus.

This is so true. I actually think the 2003 Cubs had a more fervent following and you could actually afford to go to games back then (I would suggest a correlation here). I think there's been a big turnover in fans since then, with a healthy dolloping of both new and bandwagon fans. In reality, though, I suspect Theo Epstein and Tom Ricketts have not a fuck to give.

Thanks, Matt. I was watching this transpire yesterday. Maryland had a great day by anyone's standards.

Comment 21 Apr 2017

I find it all telling that he had a disagreement with medical staff at the combine and was ultimately thrown out of the combine.  Do we know if they do the hair test for drugs there? Perhaps he did the urine test, and when they informed him of the follicle test (which will detect any drugs in the system for up to 90 days) he lost it and freaked.  No source on that, just a theory of what may have happened.

Dick Fucking Tracy. That is outstanding.

I love how the NFL teams throw shade on players, hoping that they drop far enough in the draft so that said team can draft them.

I think it's partly that and partly just too much time between NCG and the draft. They talk themselves out of the players they want and go for trendy players that shoot up the board in the last couple of weeks. The consensus on Hooker seems to be No. 7 to the Chargers. It may be the safest bet outside of Garrett at #1.

Not that #17 is some sort of disgrace.
