If you go charcoal I suggest a chimney starter and natural chunk charcoal. It's lighter than briquettes, burns hotter, less offensive odor and is ready faster.
Jumbo Diaz should probably be kept away from the mound if you would like to win at baseball. He does give up the lead as efficiently as possible and he is consistent.
You can't expect to win this many games in your final at bat. This season has just been a little goofy so far. 5 runs on 4 hits tonight and only once all season have they had more hits than their opponent. I'm enjoying it so far, but dark days are coming.
Thanks for the reply, there is absolutely no doubt that basketball sees more upsets each year than football. This was a wonderful little window into how we as sports fans perceive variability in the outcome of sporting events.
This comment is just me being curious, so please don't take this personally. Why would you give vegas more credence in football than basketball? Relative to basketball football has fewer games, fewer possessions per game, and much higher variability in point outcomes of a given possession (also special teams plays and defensive touchdowns). All of these lead to football models being much more difficult to construct and get meaningful results out of than basketball models.
By that argument baseball should just go offense/defense like football. Imagine the quality of the defense we would see if you didn't have to worry about how well that guy hits.
The stupid part is the two leagues playing with different rules. American League teams essentially pay for an extra starting hitter, so they have higher payrolls, but they also have an advantage over National League teams when they play.
I like those Purdue odds. It's either Purdue or Michigan State as second best team in the B1G (Maryland was 10-0 in games decided by less than 6 points, and just barely outscored its opponents in B1G play), so I'll take twice the money for Purdue relative to MSU. I'll be interested to see what Kenpom's log5 says about the Boilermakers.
The odds given to OSU here are awful relative to MSU/Iowa/Maryland/Purdue. I think they are just trying to get their money back from football season.
I can't believe there is actually film of Craft hitting a shot. I guess it's just there to show that if a ball is thrown randomly in the air, it could go through a circle of twice the diameter of the ball that has been suspended 10 feet off the ground 22 feet away from the ball's starting point. A wonderful illustration of anything being possible.
So if this position was filled by a man
Yeah, this type of position will be fertile ground for hiring high school coaches who can steer former players to the college that hires them. This will be like quality control coaches who also get to have contact with the players. The coach can make some comments about how he is transitioning from football responsibilities to a mentoring role, and the school can just rotate those guys through the program every 3-4 years.
Amir is getting 10.2 rebounds per 40 minutes. Russell is at 6.9. Playing time is a big factor.
The internet, praise be to you Al Gore
PSU is clearly proud of it. The PSU students used the charity work as shield to tell someone critical of their behavior (with regards to turning a blind eye to pedophiles and their enablers) that they are great people. When Olberman took the bait (huge mistake, and a poor plan with remarkably poor execution), the baiters were ready with their pre-planned faux-outrage. If Olberman had just left the bait tweet alone, or used a statement to the effect of "still not outraged enough about your university running a child pedophilia ring" he would have been fine.
I like the concept you forward here about PSU trying to repay its karmic debt. I'm not sure that the students and alums need to do it though. The current football coaches and administration could do some sort of marathon walk to support child abuse/sexual assault victims (this would force them to get sponsorships from the community/alumni reinforcing the idea that the current administration is anti-child sexual assault in stark contrast to the previous one). I know those positions have been turned over since the group that enabled Sandusky was there, but I like the idea of the positions responsible doing the work.
I can't see how they are hit and miss. It's the same template applied across the board. Oversized logo, slight rotation down and high gloss.
Put Diebler in for Craft and move Russel to the point, then you could have 5 people capable of shooting a basketball on the floor at the same time!
Can you imagine if he slips all the way down to Seattle. Russell Wilson throwing deep balls to Devin Smith, that might be enough to make me watch every Seahawks game next season.
Ffs you two, this team needs tangible things like defensive rebounding. Bringing back an ineligible guard who can't shoot isn't going to fix that.
When the nfl removed the big contracts from the top of round 1 they reduced the incentive for 3rd year players who would be drafted to come back to school and improve their potential draft position.
4 playoff spots, 5 power conferences, what could possibly go wrong?
what I want to know is will 11W come out with the commemorative set of 4 rocks glasses?
1. Well put on the reasons espn's experts would have picked Alabama
2. There are very few things in this world that are worth less than what people employed by ESPN think will happen in an upcoming game. I highly suggest everyone limit their viewing of ESPN to live sporting events (It's a wonderful little trick that leads you to a point in your life where you honestly don't know if Stephen A Smith, Skip Bayless, Trev Alberts and Craig James are even on TV anymore).
3. Regarding Brady Hoke, have you considered the possibility that he just isn't that smart?
Film room was great last year, and this year they sent matt Millen away so I expect it to be that much better.
Don't blame yourself Rocketman.
Dalton has now started 4 playoff games and the Bengals have put up 43 points in those games combined (that includes a defensive touchdown, so really 36 offensive points). He has 1 touchdown pass, 6 interceptions and 4 fumbles. God I hope that's the last time I ever see him play quarterback.
The zone the way Ohio State plays it lets shooters spot up and get an uncontested look at 3 pointer anytime they would like one. Baseline cutters get point blank looks at the basket consistently. Louisville/UNC/Iowa rebounded over half of their own misses.
