How long did the staff know that Grant Schmidt would be transferring?  Did Donovan Munger's blood clot recurrence catch the staff by surprise?  Do you expect any other changes to the current roster before the season starts?

Two things need to happen.  Matt needs to put Harris on Forbes as he is the only one who can keep up with him.  Second, the good guys need to waste a couple fouls and run through their moving screens.  If they put them on their bottoms a couple times, they'll think twice.  I'd relish Diddens putting Costello down.  Yeah, I'm still bitter.

In addition to the vistas, wildlife, hiking and skiing, the Snake River is fun.  There are two speeds: floating casually through the park and experiencing the rapids south of Jackson.

I think the reaction you're getting is because there are some illogical folks who will call a highly recruited buckeye a bust because he has not displaced a all american that is 2 or 3 years older said buckeye.  I think the "expectation" word was the catalyst.  I too am curious about the younger DL and whether they are progressing at a rate to get into the two deep.

What amazed me most about ET was how fast he recovered when he fell onto his back against EMU.  When I saw it live I thought I was watching a man plummet to his death.  But to his credit and extra-terrrestrial powers he recovered fully much faster than any human being could.

I finished Urban's Above the Line book this week and was pleased to see Coach Studrawa recognized.  This was written long before the recent move.  I am excited as the OL will benefit from two great coaches (as long as they are aligned).

Urban has a very fine line to walk.  He does not want to micro-manage, nor should he.  So he has to provide direction and ensure alignment while providing a great deal of autonomy to his staff.  His staff is comprised of guys who get it done and are very confident in what they do.  Overconfidence is a possible outcome and I have wondered did Coach Warriner believe and insist that he could perform the OC role from the field.  It took a loss to gain acceptance (on his part) for the change to be made.  Once that decision was made he had to solve the problem on who to coach the OL which then created the problem of which coach to displace.  Time will tell but it sure looks like another winning decision for UFM and the team.

Thanks for the reminder Ramzy.  One of Owens' rivals back in the day was Mack Robinson (Jackie's older brother) - that's an impressive duo of athletes in the Robinson house.  A sad fact from those Olympics was the Avery Brundage, one of he worst human beings ever, succumbed to pressure and kicked two sprinters (Marty Glickman, being one) off the 4X100 relay team because they were Jewish.  Brundage then stripped Owens of his amateur status because Jesse did not want to run post Olympic races that Brundage would have profited from.

Don't see the pants.  Will they be gray/grey or Ramzy's Cocaine White?
