This was my first thought after looking at the picture. Someone needs to photoshop craft onto that scene of gandalf and put it on a poster at a game. STAT!
I believe she was also on The Tudors. May want to check that out. I am a huge fan of her as well.
For some reason, some of my UK friends keep trying to bet me $ that Marcelys Jones will decommit and end up at UK. Is there anything behind this other than delusional wildcats with nothing better to do? I'm on here regularly and haven't ever seen this possibility even mentioned. Thanks for any info or opinions.
Did someone just scroll down the page and DV everything? get off my lawn!
Wow, it seems that she left us all a gift for inspiring you to take a chance at writing.
David Perkins is out as well right?
+1 for use of besmirch
It seems that every time I am reading an 11W article and get about half way through to stop and appreciate the insight it provides, I scroll up to see the author is Ramzy. That's not to say the other writers don't provide insight or great articles and info, but Ramzy, you are pure class. Bravo.
I couldn't see how this would work. I think the better alternative to allowing transfers would be the previously mentioned yearly (or multi-year) scholarships. Signing a player to a 2 year scholarship then not having a penalty after the 2 years if he wished to transfer for example.
I liked the idea of adopting some of soccer's relegation and friendly ideas, but I can't see how this is any real benefit or can be utilized practically.
My fraternity had a massive test file bank for nearly every course you could take in any major. The only time you couldn't find a test or at least something similar would be for a new teacher or new classes.
Having taken both languages, I can verify that. There is a lot of overlap and one difference is in tempo and cadence of speaking.
I can't help but draw on my own experiences to relate to how this coaching staff operates. I would say, like I suspect many of us would, the coaches/teachers/leaders that were hardest on us in the moment were also the best. It might not have seemed that way going through the suffering, but looking back you can tell that you've grown as a player and a (wo)man.
There can be no victory without suffering.
I know what BoT is supposed to mean, but every time I read it, I always think of it as "Board of Thrones". Anyone else?
Who would Gee be in the GoT world? I'll leave that to the masses.
That may have come off as a little conspiracy theory-ish, but that wasn't my intent. I don't think someone was calling the shots in the background and forced him into something. All I was saying was that I wouldn't be surprised if a few influential people may have suggested this as a way to appease ND (being we have tried to get them in the B1G for awhile) and coupled with the PC police and ESPiN reporting, it could have had a hand in the way things shook out.
Another thing I thought was absurd, was when UL won the bball championship this past season. UK fans kept saying "at least it's staying in the state", except it went to their biggest rival!!! Makes no sense to me. Seems like the latching on to winners is very common among the natives.
I wouldn't be surprised if Notre Dame had something to do with this behind closed doors. Coupled with ESPN grasping at straws for a news story and teaming up with the PC police, we have all the makings of a "retirement". I wish him well, and I hope he enjoys his days off and continues to speak his mind without fear of public ramifications.
I hear it a ton in Lexington for UK fans. They puff out their chests screaming SEC even when the team goes 2-10. The reason I hear the most is that it helps recruiting. The logic is that fringe players will come to the SEC (even UK) to play against the best. There may be some validity to that, but I don't think it warrants cheering for rivals. But who am I? Just a Buckeye in Lexington.
I would take him for his motivational and leadership skills alone. If that was his main purpose, I would be all for it. I don't think I would put him into any really demanding coaching position though.
CPLUNK has it right. Just depends on what capacity.
Thank you kind sir!
Caught that as well, Roger. Well done. I would +1 if I could. Still a noob on here!
I would say UK. It would be an easy road trip, a fairly easy win (against the almighty ESS EEE CEE), and OSU Scarlet would bleed all over the blue city to the point it would make the blue disappear. Also, Lexington is an awesome place to tailgate with some unique traditions. Not to mention the unparalleled amount of bourbon choices. Make it an October game and have Keeneland Horse track as yet another great attraction for visitors.
As far as the commits recruiting for the rest of the class, I see it as a major upside and only solidifies their chances of staying committed. I can't recall where I read this article, but I thought it was interesting. Basically, the article spoke about how if you can get someone else to do you a favor, they are subconsciously going to like you more and be more committed to you. These commits actively recruiting seems like an application of that principle to me. Go Bucks.
