Man, what a pity he couldn't get his act together. All the talent in the world.
So, first off, we've got about 3 years left of LeBron's prime. Trading for picks/rookie contracts isn't going to help, because once LeBron's done we are back to basketball purgatory. I think the Cavs are clearly the #2 team in the NBA, and that Golden State will go down as one of the best teams of all time. They will lose Barnes, Ezeli, and probably Livingston this season I believe, so expecting a huge drop-off is unlikely, but they probably won't be 73 wins great as the contracts start to mount up and they lose some of their crazy depth. We could move Kyrie easier, but despite his defensive weaknesses, and his penchant for heroballing it, I don't think you should trade a 24 year old All star that can drop 40 in an NBA finals game. We can't add any contracts through free agency, so that brings us to Love. Against most NBA teams, he's good, and despite the terrible matchup, he hasn't played horribly this finals (no one on the cavs is a positive +/-, but take out Game 3 where he didn't play and Love is near the top of the team. He was plus 18 in game depsite only scoring 2 points) I think we should hold the course. We're not going to be able to trade him for anybody as good as Wiggins, so I think we should hope that us playing together longer under Lue (give the guy a training camp before hating on him, although I haven't loved some of his playoff rotation decisions) gives us a boost. If that Golden state takes a step back or loses to someone we do match up well against (why did OKC have to choke?) we can win a title with the team we have. To answer the question though I'd kick the tires on blake Griffen/CP3 for Kyrie and Love just for shits and giggles.
I dunno. I'm not trying to say Michigan is right, and I don't think Ohio State is wrong. With that being said, I don't want to be a Penn State fan and blindly defend everything my school does no matter what. Recruiting can very quickly and very easily become a shady business, and we might not ever know the whole story with Hill, or Swenson, or Dean or the other guys the Harbough may or may not have forced out, or the punter grayshirt/not grayshirt and went to florida thing a few years ago. My point in saying this is that whatever moral high ground Michigan fans think they have is gone.
Gary is a beast. I saw some of his combine measurements somewhere, and apparently he can shuttle and lift better then most d lineman drafted last year. With that being said, he's a freshman, and we've got NFL caliber players on our team as well. I'd love to have him, hats off to UM if they get him, but never worry about an 18 year old.
Awesome! Thank you!
But we can pay them stipends? They aren't amateur, which is why they deservedly are getting paid. If we're paying them a cost-of-attendance scholarship, why couldn't we fine them for doing something that breaks team rules?
So maybe I'm missing something here, but what's so terrible about fining players if they screw up? I think I'd rather have Bosa and the rest playing in Va Tech and fined rather then suspended.
Depends on whether or not he actually plays wr. Easier to get on the field as a wide receiver (obv) but playing one camp as wr might help him as a qb. If this turns into a multi-year thing it probably hurts him as qb.
