Yep, I have heard the same shake down, albeit from a different light. A friend of mine was on the staff. I walked away thinking...really?? that's what took it all down huh? just shaking my head the whole time he was telling me about it all.

I thought Rose as a frosh was going to a beast for years to come. Had the make up of first rounder, just couldn't put it all together.

I thought going into 2011, they would shake of the scandal early, steamroll the BIG10 (as much as Tress team could), then take out Bama for the Natty. Oh how quickly things changed. Hindsight I cant believe it ended for the reason it did. The truth hurts, but a lie can kill.

Oh what might have been team?

Mike D'Andrea for all of his upside, that damn injury bug. I thought he was going to be the next great. I do hear he is doing some good things for young athletes now a days.

I will always wish I could have seen TP for one more year. I think Tress was setting that year up for a  ride into the sunset.

A few more...Antonio Hinton, Bam Childress, Kenyon Rambo, Rob Rose.

Its hard because I like the guy and the program down there. If he didn't get it done with Vick it wasn't going to happen. I always think of them as a solid 7-8 win team, and occasionally throw in a 10 win season.

I saw Grace Potter at the LC with my wife. She is a huge fan of hers, me not so much. I was really surprised with how great she is. All I really knew of her were the duets with Kenny Chesney. Went out and got all the music I could find of hers.

I gotta go with OSU, because not once in Cleveland's run was I in stunned silence. That happened twice with the Buckeyes run. 1. The entire first half of Wisconsin 2. 85 yards.

In the Cavs defense though, I did yell holy shit more often. After game 7 I was walking around my house, saying they Fn did it, almost laughing.

My teams have had a string of good fortune lately. I don't know that I'll ever see it again. '13 Sox win the series, '14 Buckeyes, '15 Cavs. If the Jackets can pull one off or Thad can get it done, I've got nothing to be upset about. Ever.

Yeah they might push a comeback if its just a comfort thing like soreness from an ankle injury, or working through a tight muscle, but I find it hard to believe they would push a comeback from a concussion.

In my experience, as small as it may be, my team doctors made me complete protocol, evaluations, and light workouts, before I was even remotely allowed back on the field.

Hanley for Kluber, straight up? Sounds good, tell Cleveland to make that happen. Never mind thought you said they were hurting for power.

Comment 16 Jun 2016

That's my concern with Boston, they sure could use some pitching help, but there isn't much out there. A once promising Kelly has imploded and is now hurt. It'll be up to Price and Wright to be lights out second half.

The wild card race for the AL will be interesting to watch. 4 teams in the central with a shot to take the division. 3 more in the East with a shot. That wild card will be awesome to keep an eye on.

I hated anything on my arms, you lost feel for the ball against your skin. I think as technology and coaching styles changed to more of a punch with your hands instead of throwing elbows, the need subsided. The techniques along the line with blocking and shedding blocks has changed so much in the last 15-20-25 years, its more of a create space and use proper angles and coaching instead of bluntly hitting something. Tackling has changed too, from going for the big hit, to wrap up and make the tackle. You need arms pads for the forearm shivers, and cross body blocks. Now you get flagged and kicked out.
