Why should a teenager's decision be ironclad but a coach can sit in a kid's living room, promise them the world and leave for greener pastures a year later?? If they want to crack down on the little mobility an athlete has, crack down on the coach movement and make them honor their contracts or have to sit out a year.

I have no problem allowing an athlete to transfer, in fact I think it is often a good thing. The kid gets to move to a situation that better suits them. Yes, they have to sit out a year but can still be part of the team in practice.

When I am not thrilled that I am rooting for a specific team due to the opponent. I just decide that I am rooting for that specific team to lose. In this case just root for Kentucky to lose.

It is not specifically a private parking company. It is an investment firm that bought the parking bid as a way to make money. I thought there was a similar situation going on with the city of Cincinnati recently.

I agree with you. I lot of us are guilty of being a knucklehead during our late teens early 20s (yours included) too bad those years are often vital. He seems to be on the right path and will have a successful life.

I will take it a step forward and say I think all students should get finance classes, in high school (lets face it not everyone will go to college but everyone needs to know how to handle money) and college. Money management is one of the most important life skills. Sure parents can help but how many adults out there don't know how to manage money? There are all sorts of required classes that are plain silly. Shoot I had to take a required class on how to use the library. Why one that teaches stuff like budgets, stocks, retirement, and inflation aren't a part of the American education system is beyond me.

Couple things, I think that if the kid signs up for a scholarship the four years should be guaranteed and health care needs to be addressed. I wonder if allowing a student athlete an optional extra year would allow more kids to feel like they can take some more challenging course work that would be better for them after their playing careers are over.

I have only done one major dive trip, so I don't have a lot to compare my trip to. But my dad and I went to the Cayman Brac, it was fantastic.

I would agree with you in regards to Fairley but he just signed a one year show me deal in St. Louis. To get a motivated Fairley looking for a max deal for a year would be a good thing. I would have been concerned if they signed him to a multi-year deal.

Would love to see Bennett in the second or third round. Can't get enough Centerville alums in stripes!!!!!

As Urban said to Coughlin if you go to Minnesota you're going to be seeing me anyway.' Then he said, 'You might as well ride with us to the game.' Then he remembered they were talking about Minnesota so he clarified himself, "I meant a regular season game".

Sorry, couldn't help myself. Good luck to him in Minnesota. Jerry Kill has a pretty good thing going.

Unless Marcus takes a huge tumble come draft day the Eagles would have to mortgage the farm to move up 15 picks to get him. No player is worth the three first round picks it would take to get him, ask Washington.

Couple of things. In regards to AJ I think he is a much better fit in a 4-3 defense vs a 3-4 defense that he has been playing. I don't have huge expectations but I expect he will play better. You are right a lot of people on the Bengals MB are pretty lame. Especially when it comes to Ohio State and their players, lot of hate (or as I see it misplaced jealousy). With Roby vs Dennard you are right that Roby has made an impact where Dennard has not but I believe a lot of that has to do with how Marvin Lewis handles rookies (I would not be shocked had the Bengals drafted Roby he would have spent most of the season the same way Dennard did) I would have been more than happy with either of the two. This website is much more friendly than Jungle Noise.
