Easily - scheduling the wedding. Its not a real jerk move as long as you haven't RSVP'd yes and do a no-show. Send a card with money and all should be forgiven.
Fair enough. Lombardi and Shula inherited Hall of Fame Players. Noll built an entire team from scratch. Corrected.
I still believe if his final pass in that awful awful game against MSU in 1998 was a TD and not and INT, he goes to NY for the heisman ceremony (in no way is that statement blaming him for that loss - I am still scarred from that game though and the 'offensive' gameplan/playcalling). Great to hear he is doing well. I also love hearing those small blurbs about things Tress used to do behind the scenes as well.
That is the shame that Noll doesn't get the espin praise and treatment that others get. Noll > Shula any day of the week. Shula inherited great teams in Indy and Miami, while Noll took over a franchise that was the worst in sports and totally re-wrote the culture of the team and an entire city. Only one with 4 rings (and I hope Bill B never gets his fourth). Shula was a very good coach (gets a bit more credit for his longevity but still only won 2 rings) and actually allowed Noll to leave Indy for the Steelers job, but I would take Emperor Charles anyday over him.
And the world is a better place for it.
Not saying he can't be a fine player, which he is (when he is healthy - another issue that the NFL teams will be scared of), just saying I don't see a top 10 pick in his future. Decker, with his size and position, probably has the highest NFL draft ceiling on the team.
I cannot see Michael Bennett being a top 10 pick. The best comparison for him is Aaron Donald, who has extremely similar measurements (AD 6'1" 285 and MB 6'2" 288), who was the 13th pick of the draft. Donald was the most dominating defensive lineman in the nation last season. He went to the combine and blew everyone away, which he had to due to questions about his size. Bennett is a nice player and great guy, and I hope he can attain these lofty expectations, but for the NFL he will be too small for DT and doesn't necessarily fit well at DE.
Brilliant Idea at the base of it, but 1) Nike probably doesn't care for imput from the actual universities on their product and 2) if they see his designs, Nike might try to steal him!
Look at you, complimenting Youngstown again. Danny Cattullo - send this man more bacon, stat!
Also knows how to use his hands well!
All kidding aside, it will be interesting to see whether Linsley, Hall and Norwell have long careers. There have been some surprises in the recent past that come to mind (Browning and Cordle, for example).
A high school athlete that tall with those long arms will have much more difficulty with multiple reps on the bench than a short/squatty type RB/LB. I wouldn't read too much into it.
