Carlos wants another shot at the title and has hinted at retirement if that doesn't happen, but this one might bring him out of quasi-retirement.  Would be a great fight.

Jessica used to spar with McMann (McMann's team hired her to train for several fights), so they know each other well.

Matt Brown just signed an 8 fight extension and really didn't take any damage in his fight with Maia. He wants back in the cage asap so I wouldn't bet against him being on that card at all.

Just hope whatever card they set doesn't get killed with injuries.  Seen that happen with the 2 cards they put on in Pittsburgh.

You should also check out "Back and Forth", a documentary on the band during the making of Wasting Light in 2011.  It addresses a lot of the information including the departure of the original drummer, Pat Smear's departure and reuninite, and even Nate's quitting the group for a minute.

He already re-set the hockey program in 2013 when he fired Osieki (for allegedly a personal vendetta) who had the program heading in the right direction.  That is clearly the one sport he has failed at improving.  I do agree firing another coach isn't the best approach...maybe building a more suitable ice rink would help for recruiting instead of playing in VCA.

Comment 19 May 2016

He's practicing, but I don't think he would be an upgrade right now at less than 100% (he has reportedly a very noticeable limp off of the ice but looks ok on it). But the Lighting's issues are not in net, at all.  Being outshot 212-135 in attempts over 3 games is ridiculous and the HBK line looks borderline unstoppable. 

Comment 18 May 2016

He set the record in 2005 with a 610 press.  Then tied the record (at the time) in the combine with 45 reps at 225.  His shorter arms aided him in this regard, but really hurt him when trying to catch on at the next level, since he wasn't a naturally-sized DE and wasn't fast enough for linebacker.

He played everywhere in the defensive line in high school.  Mooney didn't have anyone else nearly as strong and he was a nightmare for any offensive lineman, especially in division 3/4.

Johnny Simon did 450 in high school, so he's in that class of strength.  Johnny at one point was rumored to max out bench around 600.  Not sure if that has changed a little bit since he has had to cut down on weight in his move to OLB in Texas. 

From http://espn.go.com/blog/bigten/post/_/id/13414/meet-john-simon-ohio-states-sandman

He came to Ohio State with solid credentials, including a max bench-press of 450 and a max squat of 700 as a high schooler,

According to this article from Sept 2014, Billy was benching 475.  With his work ethic, I am sure that has improved since then.

The 6-foot-4, 312-pounder is regarded to be the strongest guy on the team. He bench-presses 475 pounds, has done 34 reps at 225 pounds and has a vertical jump of 30 inches.

The Trev Alberts' gameplan? 

Still like Mark Cuban making him look foolish. 

I would love to Speils to smash Clay Travis' skull in...maybe they can put Clay on the ultimate fighter...

Comment 16 May 2016

Matt had a crazy weekend, that's certain.
