It's actually a nice little town reminds me of a warmer Columbus with beaches. I haven't spent a ton of time there though just visited my brother and his wife who are stationed at the Navy bases there.

Is it just me or should the B1G make the stipend the same for every conference school?

I would rather live in Jacksonville than California or Texas fwiw. But yeah the Gator Bowl was an epic failure.

NBA: 82 games, 15 man roster
NFL: 16 games, 53 man roster

NBA player/owner revenue split: 49-51% depending on whether income is below, at, or above projections 
NFL player/owner revenue split: 48.5% for players

NBA players guaranteed contracts, no signing bonuses
NFL non guaranteed contracts, with signing bonuses

Just some comparisons.....

We flew him in. We said “Hey, look, we want to meet with you. You know us better than anybody. You spent four weeks getting ready for us. What’s our tendencies? What do we do wrong? What do you think?’ And he was honest with us, he just told us what he thought. It was very valuable for us.

I doubt they needed Tom Herman to breakdown the Ohio State offense. Looks like they just wanted to know more about themselves from an outside perspective. I think that is really helpful and all the top schools do things like that, it's just easier for someone else to point out your tendencies and faults than it is to notice them for yourself.

I would laugh this if this another Hand situation where UM was so sure they had him then he goes down south to Alabama

All huge contributors to the first playoff national championship

Knicks: Melo won't lead you to the playoffs and he is getting old. Trade him for a young stud PG to build your team around. Throw in a pretty good center who can defend and rebound very well. Has also shown to be able to finish around the rim.

OKC: LeBron gets Durant to tell the Thunder he is going to walk during upcoming free agency and wont do a sign and trade. Force them to trade you for something THIS year. They get an All Star PF and an non guaranteed contract (10 million) who they can package with Ibaka if they want to sign almost any free agent in the league.

Miami: Wade says later fools but I'll help you and myself out by doing a sign and trade. Yes Wade is an all star but the heat would be a better team with the Shump/Smith combo. Throw in min salary guy and a guy that probably has some trade value now in Delly.

Cavs: Tristan Thompson, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and D. Wade starting five. The greatest team ever assembled. They go 82-0 and sweep the playoffs.

This was in another forum I frequent.
