Their defensive line and linebackers, for the most part, were really big and slow. That's their problem. Against most teams, it doesn't matter, but a team that can come close to matching them physically and has a ton more speed on the edge, they lose. 

Thats what happened. If anything, it starts with recruiting quicker Lb and DE, much like how Urbans teams are built--strong, athletic, quick D linemen instead of just massive 320 lb hogs.

TBH, I initially thought the same thing, but then remembered Zeke comes from a pretty solid family and didn't think it was too far fetched to see him driving that kind of car because of it.

As much as I hate saying it, by season's end, Arkansas might have been one of the best teams in the conference. They may give a run at the top this year with 15 returning starters according to Phil Steele. 

Of course, I don't know where each game is, home or away, but they might be my "surprise" pick to steal the division right now.

I would venture to guess there are a fair amount of pro kickers who could do this under the right circumstances and conditions, just don't have the motivation or care to do so. Again, it's impressive to be able to do this, but not much in the way of practicality. 

Comment 29 Jun 2015

Definitely impressive regardless of situation. 

But, still much different than live game action. 

Comment 26 Jun 2015

Circumstances like mentioned above is just another reason why I love this site and the writers on it. Birm's rule of usually not communicating with recruits until finishing their freshman year is a way of hopefully slowing down the ridiculous pace that recruiting has gotten too. 

Edit: Not to say 1 person following this would change things but maybe others would follow suit. A tall order though in today's "get news when and where you can" world.

You said it all when you said "it's a marathon not a sprint." I don't watch a lot of NBA basketball until it matters. 

And your "Curry took over the 4th quarter" is accurate but ONLY because his teammates got him there to begin with. Lebron had to everything and DID do everything he could to win that series. 

Curry, and the rest of the Warriors can play high intensity energy all the time because they're so deep and only play 30-35 mins per each. For Cle, Lebron has to play 40+ usually and obviously the finals 45+ for them to have a chance. He couldn't have done that all year.

I did more than 1 research paper on marijuana or marijuana/alcohol. There is no evidence I read about that it's a gateway drug. Also, as others mentioned, the effect of alcohol on the body is worse, killing brain cells which can't be regrown. Marijuana has no similar effect as dangerous as that. 

Comment 22 Jun 2015

I have to agree here. Live close to Lima and our area was absolutely pounded with rain (over 10 inches in a week) last week and I helped repair and replace a pump last week. There was a ton of stuff ruined in that basement too, including a dryer and some other electrical items. 

Love Meyer and Ohio State forever, but we're not for him being famous and the greatest college football coach there is, wouldn't have heard about this, quite like the people near me who had the same situations.

The big-pawed puppy the Hokies felled last September will be the junkyard dog this time around. 

And that dog is about to get loose and show up on the Hokies home turf out for blood. 

Comment 15 Jun 2015

Completely agree with you. And it's also the reason this series is still going on. Curry just doesn't have the killer demeanor and it affects his whole team. He's a scorer/shooter. That's IT. He passes out of necessity and rarely plays decent defense. 

If curry had Lebron's attitude, this series would be over already because he would have never let Matt Dellevadova ever shut him down. 

Comment 15 Jun 2015

He's a great shooter and plays point guard. So he led the team in the stats he should lead the team in. GS has a playoff team without curry. The cavs are maybe 30 win team without  Lebron. His teammates have gotten him to the 4th (see green and Iggy with approximately 15-8-6 EACH last night) and curry took over at the end. If Lebron had that kind of help, this series would have ended Thursday night. 

Comment 09 Jun 2015

What does incidental contact even mean? Contact that affects the play is not incidental. 

Comment 09 Jun 2015

It IS good strategy for the Warriors. Put the cavs worst free throw shooter on the line, hoping he makes 1 or neither then get a bucket on their end. Saying it's good strategy doesn't mean the rule for it shouldn't be changed. 

As it stands right now, as only a common foul, it's good strategy for the Warriors but it's still stupid and should be changed. 

Comment 27 May 2015

I almost think that starting out the season this way could give the top teams an advantage from year to year. If you win the game and the team again is good that year, it's a huge benefit. Obviously losing isn't beneficial but if it's so early and to a really good team, it wouldn't hurt as much. 

Definitely an interesting debate either way. 

Comment 20 May 2015

But it is less annoying when its a buckeye doing it. 

Comment 18 May 2015

Not exactly "most of his career" as Plax only played 4 or 5 years for Pitt. Yes, Ward moved around but he also played outside a fair bit later in his career. Being able to do both is invaluable. 

Comment 18 May 2015

Indian Lake State Park. Only about half hour southeast of Lima. Has good sized Indian lake and fairly close channels to do your fishing and canoeing. Also has some trails off the state park that can be used for bike riding or hiking. Fairly flat around that part but fishing and canoeing are definitely easy access from the state park itself. Have electricity or non electric sites. 

Comment 14 May 2015

Okay but that's a completely different discussion. I'm not disagreeing Okafor is the best player in this draft, but most teams draft based on need. Mentioning a possible trade changes the thinking of the situation entirely IMO. 

I'm not saying you're wrong at all, just that your initial comment doesn't factor in a trade possibility.
