It may not apply as much in Jayme's situation.  My point is more that, no matter what your ranking, star rating, or if you're a starter -  your spot isn't safe year to year.  You are promised only the opportunity to compete.  Just because there was a great haul this year for LBs doesn't mean that the coaching staff will take 2015 off and assume we're good with what we have.  Not every recruit, even the studs, will make a contribution equivalent to their hype.  That's why we will continue to see 4 star and maybe even some 5s transfer out of the program when the writing is on the wall.

Unfortunately, we will see more of this in the future. Urbs will always recruit over someone, even if they are a prized recruit - that is how you build quality depth. Survival of the fittest and next man up. This kind of environment encourages everybody to always be fighting for their spot and discourages complacency. Best of luck to Jayme moving forward.

I went to Dustin Fox's wedding. His wife lived on my floor freshman year.  There was a pretty good stable of players at the wedding including Mike Doss (I believe), Simon Fraser and AJ Hawk.  Bobby Carpenter was #drunj.  He was doing the worm and various other things on the dance floor.  It was a really entertaining reception.

Speaking of Hawk, he was on my travel baseball team from 6th through 8th grade.  We also played basketball against each other growing up (I never played football).  You could tell that he was going to make something out of himself as an athlete.  He was head and shoulders above everyone else on the field in any of the 3 sports he played.  As a middle schooler, it was absurd how hard he would hit the ball.  Ultimately, he bailed on the other sports to focus on football and it was obviously the right choice.

I also went to grade school and high school with Mangold. Funny to see him where he is now. It took quite a while for his athleticism to catch up to his size - he was fairly uncoordinated growing up. But he certainly put it together as evidenced by his multiple Pro Bowl trips

I was at one of their shows at Newport in 2002 and it was insane.  Couldn't have fit any more people in there and they probably oversold the show - but it was great.  But I tend to agree with a lot of posters on here.  A few of their singles in the past few years have been catchy, but nothing near their pre-commercial success.

I don't know what second rate Euro leagues or the D League pay, but DeShaun > QRoss. The best bet for a payday is to stick around another year, shore up the jumper and work on his defense. But I'm sitting here on my couch, what do I know?

Edit: I guess ADV is getting around 100k/yr so if that's what he needs to do then so be it. Best of luck.

He comes charging into frame, but who gives a shit. I'm not going to analyze it like the Zapruder film. But being judgmental while calling others judgmental is a little much, eh?

On to the next one. Spring Game in a few weeks.

Comment 20 Mar 2014

I disagree. Although he has talent down in there somewhere, his effort or lack thereof, is glaring. Can't have an impact in this game if you don't give all you have. He and Craft are on such opposite ends of the spectrum. I can look past not being able to put the ball in the basket, but you can't sleepwalk through the season and be blindly supported.

Being from Dayton, I know this all too well. Funny thing is come fall, most of these Flyer fans end up pulling for the Bucks - rocking their Ohio State t shirts and posts on the interwebz. Pick a school and stick with it. I don't need Dayton alums/fans on the bandwagon when it's convenient for them.

Agree keeping it fresh is important - keeps us from re-living all of the "I want the old site back" forum topics.  It's just funny to see Twitter blow up about who's wearing what at practice - like its the Oscars red carpet.

Comment 04 Mar 2014

A true indication of the offseason is all of the #HOTSPROTSTAKES and analysis of jersey numbers.  Don't get me wrong, any football talk is better than no football talk - but I don't care if the offensive skill players are wearing single digits or Roman numerals - as long as the ball crosses the goal line.

I replayed it and did the same. Only one defender between them and had no contact with Sam. Lob was there, no doubt about it. To only be down 1 and 2 in subsequent possessions and not make any attempt to get to the rim - considering the whistle happy refs- is unfathomable.

I might be wrong, but I believe that the vertical leap is measured from the participant's standing reach - so the player's height doesn't really make much of a difference.  Calvin's 42 inch vertical would technically be higher in the air than Shaizer's because Johnson is taller.
