Maybe through the spring - I've read another six or seven books total and have a few more in progress. The problem is I'm running out of books I can get for free from the library.
Cool, I'll have to check it out. My football list is getting thin, so thanks for the recommendation!
I've never done that, I'll have to check it out. It's astonishing as an American for me to see the low amount of effort you can get to another country with there. The three-country point between Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium is super close to Aachen too - like an hour or so outside the city. It was mind-blowing for me to go there on my first international trip.
yeah, I really wish I was reading SI while he was still writing. His book is phenomenal if you've only ever read his articles.
This post brought to you by Remy, because Remy is the man.
Sorry to come to the post late - SWMBO's family is from Aachen, it's a great little town! Are you there for work or pleasure? Have you ever caught the Christmas market?
Someone's a little teste today.
I LOVE that the top 6 CBs recruited by either school ended up here. In a lot of these articles the talent has been surprisingly close (at least as rated by the recruiting service), but for this one TTUN just gets blown away.
Rereading, I was giving you a bit of internet snark. Gaah the offseason is the worst tho.
It's actually kinda nice that he's compensated for academic performance of the athletes. How much do you think he actually contributes to the athletic success of the teams other than putting coaches in place?
I think it's a reasonable topic. I just couldn't really tell what your view on it was. I think we have about the same opinion (and you've stated it nicely), but I was just trying to feel out what you thought because I couldn't tell from the OP.
You have to listen to his dad talk about his recruitment on the dubcast.
You whizz we'd stop?
Urine trouble if you don't stop this pun business right away.
I know it's the offseason, but what's the point of this thread exactly? You wanted everyone to know that you're both anti-Gene Smith getting a bonus and anti-people complaining about it?
It's also a good way to earn the buy-in of the younger players. It's neat how it works on the field and off the field.
In before "ohmygod Clinton always kicks it out of bounds"
It had to be either JTB's absolute refusal to let his team lose in Happy Valley or Big Bear's walk-off sack to end the game. That game was so loud and so hostile to the good guys, but they wouldn't let it get away from them. And the sound was absolutely inspiring - the opposite of the sugar bowl and the other big games I attended. Every time we made a big play the stadium got super quiet and you could just feel the other team deflate.
That was the best road trip I've had in a long time, too - Happy Valley is an awesome town other than all the lowlifes trying to get Joe Pa's wins reinstated and paper over child molestation.
Remind anyone of Trey DePriest?
Love the poster. But is it innuendo, trolling, or a very funny coincidence?
Yah. Gravy Choke was the man at finding talent, convincing it to come to AACC, then squandering it.
Both of them are bad at coaching football.
Or it's in alphabetical order by last name and the second Michael Bennett is supposed to be Devin Smith.
