I'm typically a 'quiet reader,' but this is absolutely silly. It's not about 'player safety,' but about keeping the SEC in power, which helps fund the World Wide Leader. Laughable as the rule seems to us, I wouldn't be surprised if it passes since it has Saban's say-so as the co-chairman with Bert.
We should just have a thread dedicated to Sammy Silverman and his amazing contributions. Just throwing that out there.
DJ, please tell me this is a reference to DBz.
I do have to say you do your best work for the Penn State. I loved last year's poster for them as well. Bravo
Can't say I wasn't expecting that one from everything I've heard and seen of them around campus. Congratulations to him!
Thank you. There is a sports god on OSU's side.
Thanks for the insight, Jason. It's a wonder that some of these guys don't realize that a) they're not going to get away with it, and b) that zero tolerance means no second chances.
I think the point he was trying to make was that a grown man was not actually hitting a woman, he was trying to separate himself from the situation. However, since she was in mid-swing, he ended up pushing her away versus keeping distance.
This is a great piece of news on such a bleak day. What a great move by Hoke, and, hopefully, Grant will have a lot of fun watching his beloved Buckeyes beating the living daylights out of scUM come November.
Can the football season finally start? Please?
This is surprisingly positive for ESPN...
Flint is a girls best friend.... No? That didn't work? Hmm... At least I use it to play with fire.
I have never liked celebrities or athletes who have such a blatant disregard for people and are treated differently for it. How many pictures and stories are there about Manziel drinking underage and how many times has he been caught, charged, or otherwise questioned by the police? It's not the fact that he does it, or that it's done flamboyantly. I'm all for young athletes realizing that there is more to life than football, and underage drinking is something almost everyone has done. However, when the law makes an exception for you because of your status, that's where I get rubbed the wrong way.
As for the question someone posed about why should he be held to higher standards? The answer is easy: He won the Heisman and therefore is the face and player-leader of college football. That gives him a hell of a lot of power, even if it's just the power to change and manipulate the media with what you do. Someone once said with great power comes great responsibility. ESPN is already dreadful enough, but it just reads like a tabloid now.
Personally, if this behavior keeps up, you have to wonder if he'll really be able to buckle down for the season and produce on the field.
Happy Birthday Coach! Thank you!
To be honest, I don't hate the Lakers. I just hate Kobe and his attitude toward anyone and everyone.
Probably not without a good jumper. He's undersized at the PG position and, while a lot of teams like defense, he needs some sort of plus size on the offensive end. However, if he improves on that, he'll have a pretty good chance. Then again, with this year's draft being kind of wonky, you never know. I would love to see him in the NBA.
God, if Craft goes to Maimi, I hope they trade him in a heartbeat to anyone, including the Lakers -and I've been a Spurs fan from birth (because of being from SA). Otherwise, I'm quite fine with DT getting drafted by Pop.
Fantastic pick by Pop and Buford. I am excited that a buckeye is now on the Spurs, and I think DT couldn't have landed in a better place. Assuming he finds a roster spot, Pop will not only try to utilize his offensive abilities, but develop him into a more complete player. Here's to another buckeye getting drafted.
Well.... Okay then, Cleveland, if you say so.
So, let's all try to say the last two draft picks names. 10 times fast. GO.
So, who else is amused by the ESPN "experts" confusion and befuddlement at this draft?
I'm just listening to the espn radio.
That's even worse. Bilas is supposed to know college ball.
Well, it's that or they don't have any of their knowledgeable journalists actually covering the event. I mean, they know some things, but that's basic, and Jalen Rose messed it up, right? That's even worse.
That would be interesting to see. I wish him the best of luck, and he was one hell of a college player. Good job on picking a dynamic, intelligent, articulate player.
