hahaha that was good. well played!
Is that flag growing out of his head? must be painful!
hahahahaha i completely forgot about that incident! So we'll go ahead and remove his name from that list.
i would say Mike Singletary will be brought on in some capacity. The guy is still adored down in Waco and it might not take much to get him. i would think they want a big name guy, but that isn't happening at this point. i could see someone in the Herman mold....good offensive coordinator who prefers the spread. Maybe they take a shot at Chad Morris, who i think is with Texas Tech? maybe SMU? either way, the guy that was at Clemson before last season.
Baylor is going to need to rid themselves of Art and the staff associated with him. Bring in a young coach like Morris, have Singletary take over the D and that could be a start.
A buddy of mine is actually really good friends with Stipe and he really is a cool guy. I've met him 3 different times and he is always just cracking jokes and really down to earth. Even after his loss last year, he was still that same guy. It's still weird to think that this same guy is now the heavyweight champ. Still doesn't seem real.
oh wow, that's a good question. i hadn't even thought of that part of this whole situation. Good call!
The interesting part of this is if the AD resigns or gets fired. I think that Baylor almost HAS to fire him to send a "message" to the NCAA. if he resigns prior to the firing i'm not sure that it will get the same reaction as a firing. I could definitely be wrong about that though. I really do agree with you that they will do their best to fire everyone but Briles. It's a sad truth.
I think it will be an exciting year for Man U. I'm an Arsenal supporter, so i am not exactly thrilled with the news of today, but for you guys it has to be really exciting. It will definitely be interesting to see who comes and goes, as there are quite a few people (Young, Jones, Fellaini, V Valdes, Blind and maybe that young striker whose name i just forgot) that might be pushed out the door. Also, i feel like it's inevitable that Matic will follow Mourinho to MU as well.
If you think about it, you have City who finished top 4 and were in the final 4 of UCL and they will undergo a complete overhaul. Then you have MU, who will probably get an overhaul and Chelsea will be adding quite a few pieces. it will be interesting to see how Arsenal, Tott, Liverpool, etc. react and adjust.
I doubt you will see some of those guys starting next season. That lineup is way too offensive minded and offers little on the defensive end. If they did go the route you are looking at, then Fosu would really be exposed and i don't know that they would do that to the kid. Personally i think it will be De Gea, Valencia (RB), a new CB, Smalling and then Shaw; Lingard (RW), Schneiderlin, Carvalho, Martial (LW), Rooney CAM and Zlatan Striker. You might even see Rooney as a CDM, which would be odd at first. I believe it was Jose who happily let Mata go to MU, so i don't see him sticking around. dumping Memphis at this point would gain a small return, so i think they will keep him and Rashford to come off the bench and provide depth. You still have Ashley Young, Darmian, Rojo, Fosu and Blind for depth. Oh and Borthwick jackson too, almost forgot about him.
Yea, that's the only thing that makes sense to me too. Hey, if we can get our series wrapped up a few days before OKC/GS, it will only benefit us. I guess you can argue that we are on a roll and need to keep playing, but i'd love to get our guys some rest.
I agree, but it would have to be game 3. If they lose that one, then i just think the Raps will be gutted emotionally. It's looking pretty certain that Vil (not even going to try to spell his name out) will miss game 3, so that certainly hurts the Raps. The Cavs are looking pretty darn good right now though.
I also find it odd that the Cavs play next and the Warriors/Thunder don;t play again until Sunday? my co-worker mentioned that and i thought it was really weird.
Now i could be wrong, but i believe it was Art who mentioned the need for a "Southerner" to head the playoff committee? I want to believe that is what this comment was attributed to. I could be wrong about the coach though, it could have been TCU's head coach. my brain is mush today.
Rough day for OSU alumni. Heard something about a former women's track and field coach passing away this morning as well. Sad day
Thank you very much for that info! Very much appreciated.
In regards to basketball recruiting, i have to admit that i don't know all that much. When it comes to actual full-ride scholarships, how many are you allowed to give out for your team? Are you relegated to the 12 players on the active gameday roster or is there a different formula used for this? To me it just seems like the staff is limited to 1-2 scholly's per year and i was just wondering how that happens when you see 2-3 walk-ons sitting at the end of the bench.
Great Post Molandisi. My sister and her BF are season ticket holders, so i purchase a 10 game pkg each season to go down to some of the games. Prior to last week's MTL match, a few of us were in the stands talking about the team and this season to date. The one gentlemen kept referencing how Parkhurst was in the wrong spot 60-75% of the time and was our biggest defensive liability. Initially i just thought the guy was drunk, but ever since then i have noticed so many people saying that MP has lost a step and doesn't look like the same player as in years past. I haven;t had a chance to watch him, nor am i some sort of expert, but i hope to be able to watch closely this Saturday vs Colorado to see how he does. I really hope that the team makes a splash in the next window for some F help, but i also want them to get a young CB to groom. Wahl isn't getting any younger and even Parkhurst is in his early 30's i believe. I was bummed that Tarek was let go, i thought he might a good fit in the central defense.
i really hope he steps up. I believe he had an injury late in camp that held him back some, but i was excited when we signed him.
Absolutely. Today, this trade sucks, but long term and even later in the season this trade benefits the Crew. I can't help thinking back to Jan/Feb when Falcao was rumored to be headed to MLS. that would definitely be interesting if there was even any truth to that rumor
dammit! i really didn't want it to come to this, but i guess this just confirms that things were much worse than what was being reported. Let's hope the team can turn things around.
it's interesting to me that if they had to trade one player, they would choose Kei. I do recall him mentioning that he would have retired if they won MLS cup last season, so that could have something to do with it? i just think our midfield is strong enough to compensate for losing a guy like Higuain, but i don't see our forward position being strong enough to make up for the loss of Kei.
Yea. i'm scared that things have always been bad and now everything just escalated to a point where it's all beyond repair. let's hope that cooler heads prevail and they can get back to focusing on the on-field product.
I really hope this doesn't happen and the team can turn it around, but after hearing kei's post-match comments things don't sound too good. Unfortunately we would be giving up a top forward and getting about $.30 on the dollar for him, so this is definitely a lose-lose for us. Not sure if the other Kamara is ready or not, and i doubt Connor Casey can go a full 90. Figures, just when we get this squad to a good spot this sort of stuff happens. I wonder if this will revive all those rumors of Radamel Falcao and whoever else coming over. Let's hope that Berhalter can right the ship and get us back to winning
Yea that's a nice pickup this late. I'm liking a Browns draft for once
A buddy of mine texted me that Tennessee hasn't had a single player drafted. Is this true? That's awful if it is. How can you be in the vaunted SEC and not have a single player taken?
C'mon Browns, take Tyvis right here!
