What Amir was last season is the Amir you're gonna get this season. 

You're probably right, but it doesn't have to be that way.

With Anthony Lee alongside, and better outside shooting from the other players, it won't be as easy for other teams to push Amir around.  Not saying it won't happen, I just think it's up to Amir, he just needs to decide whether he's going to play aggressively all the time and not get down.

I have wondered about this: Amir hits free throws pretty well, why couldn't he connect on a fifteen or twenty foot jump shot once in a while, like some other centers do?

Same here, although I have never understood what the word "cage" has to do with basketball.  Things like that bother me, I feel like I'm not in on the joke, but it's usually just something some sports writer came up with.

Mr. Cager does sound like he will be a dangerous receiver.

Edit: From sportsknowhow.com, on the early history of basketball, c. 1900:

Because basketball was often played on dance floors and in social halls, wire cages were placed around the court to protect spectators who sat in chairs surrounding the court. (Think of how hockey boards surround a rink.) These wire cages caused numerous cuts and scrapes. Players rejoiced with the wire was replaced with rope netting. To this day, basketball players are still referred to as “cagers.”

Who knew?

I think they will be improved over last year, particularly on defense.  I just wonder if they will be able to run the football.  Probably not well enough.

"This is Jim Rockford...", who can forget that answering machine greeting.  RIP James Garner.

I had not remembered that TTUN had gone on to beat Florida after the 2002 game.  I do remember that one of their other losses that year was to Washington on a controversial referee call, and I always thought Navarre was a pretty good QB, so that edition of The Game was a great matchup.   A fitting way for the Buckeyes to earn their spot in the championship game, but a real nail-biter.

How tall is Dave Bell up to now?  I've read some comments here about him that didn't seem fair to me.  He's not as experienced as some recruits but by the time he gets on the floor he should be ready to play.  Lets give the young man a chance.

Why oh why could he not have cowboyed up when he had his chance at OSU?  Of course he had some talent.

Well, good for him, better late than never.

: very harsh control or authority

Since we are talking about "harmful" mascots, let's talk about those NFL teams in Minnesota, Oakland, Tampa Bay, and--gasp--Dallas...

For that matter, doesn't that team in New Orleans "disparage" people who are atheists?

And let's not forget Miami...

I am NOT a fan of the Redskins or their team name, but far do we want to go?

Not to mention the one time web site url for the Wisconsin Trade Federation.  Not an urban legend, either.

If she lost 30 lbs or so, she'd probably be decent. It looks like she has the foundation, but it just needs a bit of renovating.

Yeah, well, ok.  Just a hunch, but I'm thinking she won't want for love after she's done asking Mr. Trebek all those questions.  

With or without renovations.

I feel the same way as you guys, can't stand the Steelers.  Having said that, I also would have to say that, year in and year out, they have been consistently good (and better than most teams) at making the most of their draft choices.  In other words, they evaluate talent well and have done so since the early 70s.  I'll be surprised if Shazier doesn't do well with them.

Funny you should say that, I remember going to the OSU at Cal game last September and hoping to see Rod get something like 92 yards on 11 carries, but he didn't get diddly.
