Whoever left the -1, point out to me what was wrong with my argument. What is the point of doing that without anyone leaving a comment?
Melodramatic much? NAs basically aren't treated as part of the country and Mexicans are treated as vermin who need to be expelled out. Both face just as much and often more disadvantages than blacks. Not to say there isn't racism against blacks or that they are equal to the status of whites yet, but this isn't 60 years ago, they get advantages like exclusive scholarships and advantages in certain employment situations. Anyone who publicly says anything that even sounds like it might be racist often gets crucified and fired because of bad publicity. Also, 80% of the five core sports in college and pros right now(Basketball, Baseball, Football, Hockey, Soccer) is not black. In fact they don't even make up anything close to the majority in those sports aside from Basketball(very present), and Football(still very present, though not as much as some like P Islanders per population).
Yeah America isn't really the land of the free given that it is actually a modern society now and has a very powerful GOV(especially CIA/NSA) that violate all types of rights, but that has little to do with racism. Still comparatively there are a lot more opportunities here than there are the majority of the rest of the world. You just have to deal with the negatives of the powerful institutions like some Businesses and Parts of the Gov that completely violate those notions in order to reap the rewards that a country like USA can provide.
ACT score is heavily overvalued and biased towards speed. It really is nothing more than a random school information test. Good GPA is in my opinion just as good if not a superior indicator of ability, plus things like community service and other after school programs will boost your value. It may devalue your ability to get some scholarships, but with those factors + a good essay on your application and an alumni father will help you a lot.
Trust me though, don't feel bad about a 25. I got a 27 which isn't much higher and I take all AP classes. The ACT is nothing more than general school knowledge, and is horribly biased towards speed(even more so than the SAT), I had to guess for about 1/3 of the test because of time constraints. I know this because I got a near perfect 99% score on the P-ACT which is a very shortened version of the actual test(that I still couldn't finish). I graduate the same year and have gotten interest from tOSU in both email/mail, my ACT score isn't much higher, I haven't done any program fully other than community service, and my 3+ gpa is nothing special though it has come from very hard classes(which I didn't put enough effort in). If someone as lazy as me, who doesn't have an incredible record of accomplishments can get interest, I'm sure you can easily if you put effort in to it.
I'd judge the schools more by the quality of their programs/professors, and the accomplishments of their alumni than a pretty flawed standardized test.
I'm guessing he will transfer to TT to be with his brother and father. Disappointed because I had thought with his behavior recently that he might actually stay.
I don't know, in my opinion without the long injury and early commit Mitchell would have gotten a much higher ranking. He is a FAR better passer than Ahmad, Bragg most likely is going to Kansas or Kentucky so he isn't really the relevant in this comparison. Mitchell wasn't a raw athlete; he had great ball handling skills, court vision, and ability to finish at the rim to go along with athleticism. With his athleticism I'm sure Matta would have turned him in to an excellent defender as well. Sure he didn't have the greatest shooting touch yet, but he had the potential to be a triple-double capable point forward type in college, and with all the shooting they have brought in recently I would rather have him over Ahmad.
Now that isn't to say I don't like Ahmad, because I do quite a bit. However I don't agree with the notion that this is more positive than negative for OSU as I think Mitchell had the most potential of that group, and we don't know whether more openings would have come about after this next season anyways(nor do we know for sure those three would all sign with OSU). I do agree that tOSU will be fine though, they will have plenty of talent in the 2016 class, and they already have a ton of young talent on the team right now.
I've heard from a lot of Bama fans that Lindsay was actually the better Center on that line. Run game(ypc) apparently improved while he was starting, he is a hardnosed strong blocker, and he knew the Bama offense well so hopefully that means he is good at picking up playbooks. I've heard Bama was thinking about moving their starting C over and having Lindsay start, it shouldn't be made out as if he had to leave because he couldn't play there. I hope he learns the playbook quickly, I'm rooting for him to start.
"by far, Dontre’s the No. 1 spot."......."He's the staring H at Ohio State"
I think Dontre is going to take the wide majority of the snaps at H, given the history of how much Urban's past starters there were used and what Urban has said about Dontre's improvement(been very praising of it).
Only if you consider Philly Brown not to have been starting last season - H-B sees enough snaps that it is definitely starting, especially considering many of Urban's best non-RB/QB offensive players have played at the position(Harvin, Brown, etc.)
So you won't swim at any beach that isn't a lake? You're missing out.
Well technically Salt Waters use ocean currents to cross large expanses of open sea, so they are capable of existing in areas of deep water. I'm not that knowledgeable on Great White territory though I assume there would be little to no overlap, but it isn't impossible.
What about the LBJ/KI fast breaks with the best outlet passer in the league Kevin Love? People don't realize his skill with outlet passes, Corey Brewer is a decent player but with Love he was up there with Westbrook and LBJ in FB points.
Yeah, that is one of the few pieces they are really missing right now. You never know what could happen, they have 2 first round picks still in 15 so it could also come through a draft that is supposed to have strong PF/C talent. Trade could also be a possibility.
Don't forget the addition of McDermott and Mirotic(considered on of the best bigs in Europe). Bulls will be our competition definitely for the next season, and likely over the next couple of years in the east.
The team is just a teeny bit better than they were when Boozer said that, so I'm pretty confident he is staying.
Yeah, actually it is very likely that Heat are the third or fourth team in the East with the PG injury. The only team I could see finishing higher are the Wizards, barring injuries.
Are we ever going to see that killer TE option Urban ran with Aaron Hernandez at Florida? Heuerman is athletic and powerful enough that I think he could be effective on with these type of plays, and it would add another wrinkle that can get three weapons moving in space(QB+RB+TE).
Brutus is actually one of the biggest crocs ever measured, and this was a bullshark(freshwater) that was out of its league size wise. It is pretty incredible to see how dominant some of the large salt water crocs can be though, it takes something very powerful to eat a shark. I'd be intrigued to see what would happen if a salt water and a great white met, but their territories are so different and the nature of their survival(apex predators would rather avoid a fight with something that large, as one injury can mean death by starvation/infection) means it will probably never happen.
lol that isn't happening and like the guy before me said is some made up number that was referring to the spring game. The fact is that Urban has never had an offense pass more than run(look it up on CF reference), and his best offenses consistently averaged 8-20 more run plays than pass plays.
I don't get why people always harp against Urban's system, It would be incredibly stupid to go away from a system that has created some of the best offenses in recent years, and helped win a title and dominate a conference known for NFL talent on defense.
I like the comparison to the comparison of a serge ibaka type raw shot blocker/athlete at the college level. Oden had more size, strength, and offensive skill. he was a player that dominated the boards and could dominate defenders by backing them down then overpowering them. On top of that he was an incredible defender, I don't think Giddens is close to that overall package right now or really that similar of a player.
Not true, Ebola doesn't transmit through air(only through body fluids) or survive well outside of the body. So it is highly unlikely that it is present at all in Columbus, which would take somebody who is infected coming in to the city. So the title is completely fine.
In fact, take it straight from the coach:
“He’s a starting H,” Meyer said Tuesday. “He took (wide receiver Corey) ‘Philly’ Brown’s spot, so he’s a full-time receiver. We did take him today and put him in some backfield action. We use that term, (Seattle Seahawks wide receiver) Percy Harvin, very loosely, because there’s only probably one of him. But we’d like (it if) that hybrid position is really a key guy if we can do that … by far, Dontre’s the No. 1 spot.
“He’s the starting H at Ohio State.”
Wilson is almost certainly starting at H-B. Unless you expect Jalin Marshall who has never seen the field to start over him, which would go against every early depth chart and what Meyer has said. I think some of the hype is unwarranted from Samuel(people saying we can expect him to produce more than Wilson last season, when Wilson was VERY productive for a FR all-purpose type), but Wilson has already had a productive efficient year, and every sign points to him improving. Championing a player who have barely seen the field(CM) or a player who was much less effective in most ways last season ON THE FIELD(Spencer) is completely illogical.
Yeah I realize they are two different types, but Thomas hasn't been getting much praise from Meyer, and with so many potential WR options(Wilson, Devin, Dixon, Corey, Greene, etc.) somebody is going to get left out almost entirely. I'm hoping it doesn't happen to MT again.
Competitive again? Yeah they aren't an elite program for the time being, but 8-4 and 7-5 is solid with their restrictions, and they have one of the most promising QBs coming back. Yeah they won't have a lot of depth, and they are in the tougher division, but to say that recruits for NEXT YEAR have to wait a long time for this program to be successful is pretty ridiculous, especially when there are already movements to end the penalty now by important people. They won't have a lot of depth but Franklin is a good coach and at the top of their depth chart they are very solid for the most part, not to mention that Franklin is a great recruiter who will continue to get good talent even with restrictions.
Hell, a lot of players would rather get big time playing time to help PSU rebuild than many other situations.
