Even when they win -- they lose. Guy gets DQ'd for his last lap stunt.
first American to medal in the Steeplechase since 1984
And Jager will be the second in the men's race.
I just find it so perplexing that this is only the 3rd Olympics in which they've had women's steeplechase.
The only thing the NCAA needs to do is pull the rug out on the entire athletics department. It's a financially crippling move that will have a permanent impact on the university. Sure, the NCAA can't toss anyone in jail, but when you're talking about institutional immorality such as this, hitting their bottom dollar is just as effective.
McCraw's office contact info is still listed on Baylor's website. They are going to have an interesting time until that info is changed and unlisted. Rightfully so... people may not agree but anyone who points the finger at a victim deserves to be called out and publicly shamed, at the very least.
The 3000 steeplechase is going to be great. Jager has the 13th fastest time in history, and has a solid chance to medal, if not win because anything can happen in the steeple. Source: I've fallen in the event more times than I'd like to admit...
It seemed like an eternity that he was here (not a bad thing!), but it doesn't help that your entire class went pro after year 1, not to mention the revolving door of other pros we had until he was done.
It's the one thing that ties all alternate universes together.
Live only about a mile from the course... I'm a bit disappointed he didn't swing by to say hi.
On a side note, this is always the worst week to go to the local Chipotle. Apparently golf fans love their Chipotle (I'm trying to work on my rewards here!).
Will be interesting to see what may become of this. The Jazz are pretty heavy on the PG position, but no one's amazing (and I hear they're looking to trade Burke). And maybe Craft can make enough noise to catch another team's attention too.
So when do we get our State Champs 95 Years and Running rings? Oh wait, we don't, because that doesn't matter.
It worked for the Cavs. If Rose is willing play the role Irving did, the Knicks could definitely benefit from this. Porzingis will be a force too, so they could be a surprise next year.
Gene has tiny shirt and long shorts, Thad has tiny shorts and long shirt... at least Urban has a proper ratio down. #coachfashion
1A - Tonight.
I really hope some profs throw down 10 page papers due the next day.
And Want to Do Other Stuff Good Too!
Awesome place for him, being close to home.
With the extra cash he's picking up with that selection, it's safe to say he'll never have to. Problem: solved.
Gordon's next roommate??
"The new Emmitt Smith." No pressure Zeke!
Read that as "incineratebriles". That would work too.
GS will take the Clippers in 5 with Paul out for sure. But if they don't get Curry back at near 100% by the next round, they'll get eviscerated by the (most likely) Spurs. People tend to forget that the Spurs had a top 10 season of all time as well this year.
Will be interesting to see what his future basketball career would be like. It's fairly uncommon for kids of NBA stars to be extremely successful in college, rare for them to make the NBA, and even more rare for them to make a big impact in the NBA. Even Jordan's kids couldn't hack it in college.
Considering their draft history of late, trading away and receiving draft picks is like relocating garbage from one place to another. At least we get more garbage (picks) this time!
Though both did stay in Ohio. Interestingly enough, the Sibert move proved to be the best for him. Became First Team A-10 and, uh... defeated a certain team in the NCAA tourney...
Something tells me he doesn't pay a cent for his tuition. Mommy and Daddy must be proud of their little hellspawn.
