I was in Seattle a few weeks ago for a conference and honestly didnt notice any difference. In fact, I was walking from the convention center to the hotel (about 6-7 blocks) and some guy stopped in the middle of the sidewalk and lit up a bowl.

I actually thought to myself, "that dude has huge balls to toke in the middle of the street" then I realized it was legal there. That's how little I noticed the issue.

BTW, I've never smoked pot but I think it should be legal. When you see 5 year olds using the CBD chemical in marijuana and having their seizures diminished that is clear proof there are insane medical benefits. I never trusted the guy with a Bob Marley poster in his room that said smoking was good for his bad back... but when a 5 year old is benefited it's pretty clear.

In fact, I would love to see any legal challenge to professional leagues or college conferences or traditional employers denying participation as a result of marijuana use.

Certainly you cannot be high when you are working however weed apparently stays in the system for 2 weeks. How can an employer tell you what legal substance you can utilize outside of your employment? And for sports, especially something that is not a performance enhancer.

If he's afraid of competition @ Tennessee from a kid that will be arriving a year after him then he's surely afraid of competition at Ohio State.

Let's say he got here in 2016...

  • JT Barrett
  • Stephen Collier
  • Torrance Gibson
  • Joe Burrows
  • Tristan Wallace
  • Danny Clark (2017)

Go to Florida, they're bereft of talent at the QB position.

I love the revisionist history of YTOWN. First, you cant say it was about 3 things and then say that states' rights and slavery are the same thing.

Second, it was not about taxation or states rights, it WAS about SLAVERY! All you have to do to prove that is read all the states letters about why they were seceding.

Here, I've provided the LINK for you. PLEASE READ

Also, a funny 2000 article from The Onion.

This could be the only quintuple option threat ever. Think about it... JT/Cardale in the gun, Braxton to the left, Zeke to the right...

Run an inside trap option with Zeke, with Braxton running behind the Q to the right for a pitch option, OR the QB for a run option, OR the pitch to Braxton where he can throw, OR dont pitch to Braxton and the Q can throw...

"MUCH" better? Are you sure? We did average 292 ypg with Cardale but it isn't like the run game was garbage with JT, the team averaged 257 ypg rising with him behind center.
Comment 12 Aug 2015

I think it's more than that... i think under Cardale the staff had more called runs for Zeke... truth is Cardale has a gun but he isnt great in the read option... many of his bigger runs were following a scramble on a pass play.

I had a pair of Xavier McDaniels back in the day... I think they were sold at payless

Comment 11 Aug 2015

I think what Kirk blindly fails to acknowledge is that ESPN pimps almost all the schools in the SEC regardless of whether they are "winners" historically.

Last year was all about Ole Miss and Mississippi State... past years have been about Georgia or Auburn or Missouri...

Shit, Auburn is their preseason pick to make the playoff... a team that lost to a team we beat 59-0.

Where is ESPN talking about the rest of the B1G?

Not really sure how I settled on Arsenal but have been a fan for a couple years now. It basically boiled down to finding a team in London because that is a city I'm most likely to visit. Didnt want to root for Chelsea because they're owned by a Russian friend of Putin...

Fullham is a small club, Crystal Palace and QPR bounce around from the Championship to BPL so it was really between Tottenham and Arsenal, who are rivals.

I think I settled on Arsenal because they're owned by an American.

To be honest, I love Birm but this is a Busch League post. It's like CNN saying "police MAY have captured the shooter..." and then leaving people hanging without clear indications.
