He looked to kick out a lot this game. Iona was smaller and our other guys matched up well. If it comes down to him, he'll get the points he needs to help this team win.

I think it's completely possible to put Laurinaitis over Bowman at the very least. Playing in a 4-3, Laurinaitis is the man on that defense. Bowman has other guys like Willis, Whitner, J. Smith, A. Smith, Goldson, Rogers to help him along. 2 pro bowlers on the DL, 2 in the secondary, and one of the best LBs in the game right next to you.

It's not fair. JL has the Pillsbury Doughboy playing DT, Howie's kid at end, a corner in Janoris Jenkins who may be one of the best in the NFL some day but isn't there yet, OLBs who are nobodies, and safeties that I can't name.

JL got no help, but JL, Finnegan, and Jenkins are the reason that the Rams defense could stop a nose bleed this year.

When Mike Conley doesn't play well the Grizzlies lose.

When Evan Turner doesn't play well the 76ers can still win.

Mike Conley is the glue that holds the Grizz together, and he's not even the 2nd option on that team.

That commentary was terrible. I thought he was about to say "Boom goes the dynamite" for a minute.

Comment 26 Jul 2012

I was expecting a lot of bro bombs, a la Bryce Harper.

Cool kid. I still hate USC though.

Comment 17 Jul 2012

I like Oregon's variety. Even though some of them are hideous, it gets the players excited.

Comment 12 Jun 2012

Wow. I guess they don't think they're going to have Hernandez after this year.

What happened at ND was tragic. I don't remember the situation correctly, but I'm under the impression that the whole thing was declared an unfortunate accident. 

This situation with Petrino could have dire implications on the University. I live in Arkansas and a lot of Hog fans are questioning how this could have been worse than the Tressel and Tatgate (I wear an OSU hat almost everywhere I go). This whole thing with Dorrell causes potential legal ramifications against the University because it involves their hiring process. If the allegations are true, the University of Arkansas as a state funded institution could come under serious fire for fair hiring practices and discrimination. This isn't a matter of breaching the NCAA's code of conduct, but University policy as well as the law.

Mark Snyder, Marshall

Darrell Dazell, Kent State

Taver Johnson/Paul Haynes, Arkansas

Sean Taylor and Ed Reed are arguably two of the best safeties to play the game. Losing Taylor was a huge loss for football in general.

I have a man crush on Craft. I sat around with SEC fans all night and they were gushing about how he was the most underrated PG in the NCAA.

Look, I'm an ABC (American Born Chinese) and I'm not going to say that I speak for everyone, but I don't think that the phrase "chink in the armor" is offensive. However, taken in context of the story it is racially insensitive. 

I've said it for years, but the majority of people I see think that it's not racist if it doesn't involve black people. I've had people, whites and blacks, come up to me and ask how the chinese buffet is going or "what kind of chink" I am. I don't ever date asian women, which admittedly is kind of weird, but I've been out with my white girlfriend and had someone holler at her "why you with that yella fella."

This past week has been ridiculous.

  • Floyd Mayweather sticks his foot in his mouth again and shows that if he wasn't a boxer, he may not be fit to work at Burger King.
  • Jason Whitlock says something which is overtly racist, and apologizes blaming Richard Pryor for his poor sense of humor. The man should have been fired, but nothing happened, because he only said something terrible about asian people.
  • Applebee's sent out a memo telling media outlets to come to one of their restaurants to watch asian people cheer on Jeremy Lin.

ESPN was the last drop before the cup spilled over. A lot of people have been on edge, so something that may have been dismissed before, is suddenly a big deal now.

Jeremy Lin is changing the game right now. He's the first American Born Chinese athlete of note, he's bringing a spotlight to how asian americans are viewed and making people rethink whether those perceptions are fair.

I was on a testosterone shrinking group date with my girlfriend and her friends during the Miami game. By the time I was able to usher everyone into the nearest Mexican restaurant for dinner and catch a glipse of the game, Ohio State promptly began screwing the pooch and bauserbombing balls into the stands. The following conversations ensued:

"Oh no, I'm not mad about that play. Though you know, a 4th grader could've made that throw."

"No I'm not mad."

"No it's okay, you don't have to leave."

"Please take me home so I don't break things in public."

"You pick the movie."

Worst night ever. I thought the Miami game was punishment enough for my sins, but nooooooo, some asshole wrote and produced The Notebook.
