I'll have to drive about 5-10 minutes to check out a game this season. Should be a lethal combo with QB Tate Martell. Gorman is loaded and #3 in MaxPreps top 25.

Comment 29 Jul 2015

Gorman is in the Division 1 NIAA State Football (The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association is the governing body of athletic programs for high schools in the state of Nevada) And as I said above, they are in a league here.

Some legislators want them banned from the league due to the massive ass kickings they give to the local teams.

Comment 29 Jul 2015

I live a few miles from Bishop Gorman. Great program and a lot of backing from the Fertitta's of UFC (Zuffa), everything is top notch, from facilities, to coaching. Whatever they need they get, including players

Even though Tate Martell doesn't graduate until 2017,  keep in mind, Dorian Thompson-Robinson could see a lot of time during the 2nd half of games as besides the games against the national powers, there will be massive blowouts in the majoity of their games against league opponents. It just depends on other upperclassmen who might be in front of him on the depth chart or not.

Comment 28 Jul 2015

Both of my leagues are Buckeye fans only leagues.

Any word on how Michael Warren RB out of TCC did at FNL? 

Comment 25 Jul 2015

I live in Vegas going on 11 years, and within 5-7 minute drive to Luxor or Mandalay Bay. I've never placed a bet in a sportsbook. Whenever I go into a sportsbook, it's to take a break from live poker or poker machines.  And that is usually to meet up with a buddy who wagers, to check out a game, or watch a game I can't get on TV.  Great place to hang out and relax and not spend a dime unless I order something to drink or a snack. Nothing wrong with sports wagering, I just prefer other method to blow my money.

Not well versed on the NCAA cluster #%ck that are their rules, but I'm wondering if this is a recruiting violation? If tweeting at recruits is supposed to be a violation, I would say this sure as hell is worse. 

On that note, if he would flip, that is the only way bama will win something over the  Buckeyes !! LOL
