Damn, Mr. LimpWrist in the flannel shirt at the end really hurt my feelings. Obviously a big time football guy. That's really the best SI could do?
I didn't read any of this article, I just really wanted to say thanks to the staff and readers of 11w, I love reading your stuff and being a part of this community.
Too Happy to describe, Go bucks
for some reason, I'm thinking of the national signing day where Zeke was torn between us and Mizzou, and cried bc he felt like he let down his home state school while he committed to OSU, and also how we got Vonn Bell that year, somehow, from Saban. All I could think of is that those two kids made the best decision of their lives.... right?
Weird, I've never considered Moeller, Coffman, or St. Edward inferior.
But since they are, would I be right to assume Wayne won states? No, they didn't?
doing grad school at kent--they require a combined analysis exam and algebra (group, ring, fields, linear) in August. I took a teaching job starting in August, so I'm trying to finish over summers if I do well enough on the exams. I am also much better in algebra-- cannot stand real analysis and measure theory.
Good luck on yours--good to know I'm not the only one having the best summer of my life.
love complex analysis, have been studying for pure math QE all summer. I didn't read this article I just came from an integration theory session and liked the picture
I coached these kids when they came to the St. Eds camp as 5th graders. We would play a game called "razzle dazzle" (basically ultimate frisbee with a football) and it always came down to David and Andrew throwing across the field to each other. Everyone knew they were great athletes, it's just good to see them continue to work and get recognized.
It's defensive because Howard mailed it in all year regardless of injury, and displayed awful attitude and professionalism. For some reason (assuming your from LA, because being a fan of them otherwise doesn't make sense) you are a Laker's apologist. And it is simply not the truth (as you claim) because stating "best big man in basketball" is completely subjective and not able to be proven. You give off an arrogant vibe in nearly all of your posts, and this all stemmed from me commenting on Marc Gasol's high level of play. You clearly had to take exception to that, for one reason or another. Have a great day--I'm sure you now have a plethora of opinions since you are no longer wasting time watching your favorite team in the playoffs.
all right man get defensive. you're clearly the be all end all of anything basketball related and anyone else's opinion is null and void.
That makes Lopez a guy that plays hard, doesn't make himself a spectacle, and shows sportsmanship and respect to the rest of the league.
I guess I should have said superstar when compared to just about anyone else in the league playing his position. With D12 playing soft the entire season, I would say Gasol and Lopez have legit cases at being the best big men in the game (with respect to Tim Duncan who can probably play til hes in his 60s)
conley is very good. bad thing is that he is playing in an era with a bunch of great point guards, so it seems that a lot of people will overlook his career (playing in a market like memphis doesn't help either). Marc Gasol has become a superstar this past year, so I wouldn't be that surprised to see Memphis in the western finals.
yikes we are really hurting for material on 11w when we are ranking state birds, hurry up football season!
it is really making me think. I know charles had Iowa state in his bracket--they showed it online. But why is one block/charge call getting so much media coverage?
From your "About" section:
"One of the Top 10 College Football Blogs." – Sports Media Challenge
"... one of the best blogs around ..." – Smart Football
"... Eleven Warriors, which is the best Ohio State blog going ..." – Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Begin with Eleven Warriors, which is absolutely superb – it's one of the very elite college football sites." – Pre-Snap Read
"... they set themselves apart with the quality of their writing." – The Columbus Dispatch
The site is recognized for its reporting on sports (namely football). None of these comments relate to political reports. I am sure I am not alone in asking the site to continue with reporting on sports and minimize reporting of other issues.
yep, I believe separation of sports and state should be in the bill of rights also.
As a voice of reason, what did you expect in posting something like this? Has the name "Obama" ever been spoken without a heated exchange of words following? I'm not justifying anyone's reactions or stating my beliefs, but it may be incumbent on the site to have a little foresight--possibly disabling comments on an article such as that could be a good idea if you are going to be overly-sensitive to what readers say.
Be smart about stuff.
Let the downvotes ensue.
seems like a big "if," I think we all know he has (or had) potential to be a 15 and 10 guy, but I believe the main concern is whether or not he can stay healthy and play 70+ games.
I'm against the cavs signing him to anything more than a 1-year deal. The team needs cap space to sign a legitimate guy who can play the 3. Plus, as we saw with the grizz trade, cap space can be a beautiful thing.
man you would think steph curry on that davidson team would be on this list, right? I really think we do need a legit 2nd scorer especially this year with the incredible depth in college BB. Deshaun is bound to have an off night evenutally and I think guys like lenzelle and Q may have to pick up the slack. Great win tn, though, and if we play D like that all year we will not need too much scoring.
the "deal with it" chant was pretty funny, when will that be forgotten?
