Nailed it. I was baffled how they could try to charge so much for a scrimmage/practice.
Consistency is definitely needed for Smith. He'll make a great catch here & there, but then disappear for 4-6 quarters.
Love the attitude. You have to stay hungry. I have no idea why Brown played in front of this guy.
Wow, that is impressive. This film alone can cause fear in the minds of opposing coaches lining up for a long field goal at a crucial part of a game.
After 2 broken windows on my '77 Dodge Aspen Bundy-mobile, I stopped locking my car on campus back in my day. It would've been cheaper for me to replace radios, cd's, etc. than keep replacing windows.
Nice! Reading & posting from my iPhone while not having to zoom . It looks great, Jason.
No sure if this is already on here somewhere, but Urban will be featured on a fishing show with his son on the Outdoor Channel this weekend.
Took my 2 boys (6 & 2 years old) to the game on Saturday night. They loved it. I was surprised that my 2 year old stayed tuned in for the entire time.
I live in Pickerington too. I have gone to about 10 Pick Central hoops games in the past 2 years. Tate has been dominant in every one of them. Even 2 years ago when they won the state title.
I often tell the story of walking into the first game I attended after moving into town a few years ago. Me and my then 4 year old boy were a bit late and walked into the gym at the baseline munching on some popcorn in the 1st period. Right as i walked in Levert (scUM) made an alley-oop pass to Tate who was on the baseline near me and he soared above everyone and slammed it home against Grove City. My jaw dropped. And then it dropped even further once I sat down and looked him up in my program & learned he was a sophmore!
So did Deshaun Thomas make the Spurs roster? I don't see him in last night's box score?
I love these stories. Keep them going. When will there be one for Pickerington?
The 1st Pickerington Central hoops game I went to after we moved there, me & my son Ben were a few minutes late to the game. We entered the gym just as Tate ran past us on the baseline & received an alley-oop pass from Chris Levert. He soared & slammed it down with ease. Instinctively, I said "Holy sh*t!" rather loudly & was scolded by my then 4-year old boy for saying a potty word.
We sat in our seats and I quickly thumbed through the program to find out who it was. I was floored to find out that he was just a sophomore at the time. This was the year that Central took the State Title. They were loaded.
CL, you need to come to a Picktown hoops game with me next Winter to see Tate play.
I would absolutely love the Cavs take a flyer on him. Especially since they've had issues with Varejao and his injury woes.
I've been watching Tate play since last year's Picktown Central Championship run. His game kind of reminds me of D. Thomas. He can definitely create his own shots.
When my 5 year old son Ben & I walked into our first game last year, Tate was on the receiving end of an alley-oop pass from C. Levert (now with scUM). My jaw dropped. I never saw anything like that at my HS. This year, he was by far the best player on the court in the 3 games I witnessed. And he still has one more year to go in H.S.!
Your vision of this site has come true. From your first stab at this sort of thing with Chris Spielman's Dirty Socks to what 11W has become, I'm damn proud of what you & the 11W staff have done. I'm sure you're proud too.
I wish I was able to stay on as a writer, but my 2 little boys take up most if not all of my spare time. It was fun while it lasted. 11W probably a dozen or so page views per day back then. And it was probably all on us. :)
I still lurk on here often and post here & there. It's a damn good site. Can't wait to see your plans for mobile. I know it'll kick ass.
After all of the trouble CC got himself into & out of....how in the hell did Duron turn out the way he did?
Whatever their salaries are, it isn't enough.
I had an Arts class (Arts College 160 or 161...something like that?) with Treg Lee. He was in my "mandatory" study class that met once a week. I recall him being there once.
Playing with my money is like playing with my emotions, Smokey.
I can see the Spring Game in Cleveland for temporary reasons. But not Cinci. Cleveland is a Buckeye city while many of the Cinci population are UC fans (understandable) & UK fans (not acceptable).
Check out Wilfred. Hilarious.
No way should all be conference champs. Then you'll see a Va tech in the playoff instead of a much better Big ten or SEC team.
