No problem. Happy to help a Buckeye. 

I think it also has a lot to do with academics. A lot of these kids are realizing that they most likely won't be able to be professionals in these sports so they do the smart thing and they use the sport to help get them into the best academic schools they can. I actually think div 3 schools are usually better than div 2 schools at most sports. I don't know that for a fact but thats kind of what I've noticed. Thats why a lot of the dominant div 3 schools in sports are the the best at academics.  I think Williams has won the Div 3 capital sports cup for the past three years or something.  I know when I have a some kids and if they are fortunate to get offers at mid level div 1 schools, I'd still want them to choose a div 3 school. You can be a big fish in a little pond and get the best education while you are at it.

Thats awesome. Unless he's really good I would recommend playing division three. Better chance at playing and less of a commitment. One school I'd highly recommend when you are up here to take a look is Amerst college which is a top 5 div 3 college in the country and by the city of Amherst. Another school is Williams which both my parent graduated from. Number one div 3 school in the country and rated the number one of all schools in the country by some publications. Wish I had gotten into it. I think its like a two hour drive from there but a really nice school if he can get in.

I think math and technology is also pretty good up there also. Just wondering does your son hope to play lacrosse in college? And if so do you think he's good enough to play div 1? Sorry if the question are a little personal. 

I second the basketballl hall of fame. That place is sweet if you even follow basketball just a little bit.

Amherst is an interesting city. Lots of good colleges located in close proximity. Me personally I didn't care for it to much. But my buddy loves it there and Umass Amherst has got a pretty good business department there if your son is interested in that.

They do it for the NBA draft all the time. The player agrees with the team that if they draft him they will not work out for other NBA teams. Never heard it happen really in football but happens a good amount in basketball.

I don't get why we didn't feed him in the post at the end of the game. I mean the guy was 7 for 7. At that point, you just gotta be force feeding especially when our offense went cold in the last four minutes of regulation. We were hucking up jump shots and turning the ball over when we should have been given him to the post. Thompson really impressed me this game. I love Giddens energy but Thompsons offensive game is much more superior than Giddens at this point. When we play teams with a smaller or not great defensive big, we should play Thompson more.

Haha IDK about Manning but are you kidding me about Brady? Brady gets ripped apart by fans and the media outside of new england.

Harris

Lyle 

Tate 

KBD

Thompson

That would be my ideal lineup but I know Loving would not handle being relegated to the bench well at all so I guess you have to go with the regular starters.

Dude you sound like such a michigan fan right now its ridiculous how mad you are. You can't honestly say he's not one of the greatest coaches ever. Belichick made a career backup qb in college (Matt Cassel) go 11-5 in the regular season and a tie in the division. Literally one of the stupidest claims I have ever heard on 11W. And cute nickname you really are creative and showed him.
