I've said it before, but when Bosa talked about separating himself from Zeke at OSU, it was obvious there was more going on than meets the eye. Urban and company did a tremendous job of either restraining him or covering for him while in Columbus. While this isn't a big deal in a vacuum, it's definitely supporting evidence that Zeke is a little wild. If he doesn't reign in the erratic behavior, he'll start to have problems on the field.

I'm assuming they had to get the go-ahead from the Paterno family, correct? Makes me wonder how they'll depict this in a way the family will approve. I'm interested solely on that reason.

Wedge anchors are the correct way to do this. You have to consider wind lift as well as horizontal wind. I wouldn't trust tap cons, and I would've assume code would agree with this.

Kluber had no-hitter stuff last night. Had it not been for the early single, it could've been a real possibility. He pitched to contact a lot more once they had a healthy lead. Then went for strikeouts in the ninth, as you do.

You Cavs fans are delusional. Just trade all your bigs for more point guards and small forwards. Immediately after Golden State crushed you on the boards.

I'm not a Cavs fan, but I'm a lifelong basketball fan. I feel like I can give a pretty unbiased opinion on this.

They scored plenty of points. There's no need to worry about the offense. They got good shots and made them at a high percentage. You should be able to win any series scoring 110 points per game. 

Defense. Team defense specifically. Their rotations are horrendous. Do they even practice? The starting five are good enough individual defenders to beat GS. Too many individual breakdowns in effort and execution. Lebron may as well be standing still when he's off the ball. They are incredibly inept at knowing when to help and where it needs to come from. See coaching. 

Lue is worthless as the coach of this team. Lebron doesn't seem coachable. The others are following suit. This isn't college where a coach can win with scheme, but you can certainly lose by lack of any kind of defensive identity. Griffin was better suited to coach this team, but he wasn't a Lebron guy. 

You can't build a bench entirely of aging shooters. You need defense off the bench. Korver and Jefferson were absolutely torched in this series. Cut 2 of Korver, Jefferson, and Williams. Bring in some young guys who will do what they're told and contribute in frustratingly physical defense. Take your free fouls to make Durant and Steph think twice about coming in the lane.

But not too much credit. Urban was the most obvious choice ever. I will give credit for actually getting it done. 

Comment 02 Jun 2017

Anything is better than the current rule. College basketball has suffered terribly by the one and dones. The overall quality of play is down and is argue fundamentals are down as a result. A coach has a hard time getting a guy to work when he'll be getting paid in a year. Institute the baseball rule and bring development back to college hoops.

I think everyone is assuming he got into the car in the same state they found him in. That may or may not be the case. Hypothetically speaking, he could've taken the precscribed pills at the prescribed dosage, ran to Taco Bell, and was hit with the effects 10 minutes later. It's still criminal, but it's not deliberate. Not trying to defend his actions, just pointing out a counter theory.

I was hoping he'd ride of into the sunset after a "farewell tour". Corso is great, but it hurts to watch him stumbling over his words. I feel bad for him and find myself rooting for him to get through his sentences.

I work for a Honda dealer and Honda paid for rentals for any driver's side airbag we couldn't replace that day. We're currently towing certain high risk vehicles to the shop for repair or sending employees to repair them where they sit. This is only for 2001-2005 Civics and 1998-2002 Accords. Basically, Mazda sucks. 

Comment 30 May 2017

I was mostly shocked by how he is actually a very private person. He's done a great job hiding that through the years as the face of Nike Golf. I think the article contradicts how some people view him as a partier. Seems like it's exactly the opposite, even with his mistresses. Such an odd story when you parse his public life with the one portrayed in the article.

I'm as big of a Tiger fan as there is. I started golfing just before he came on the scene. I've sat and watched more rounds than I care to count and tried to emulate his game as a kid. I came across this article yesterday which is rather lengthy, but tells lots of stories even I had never heard. It's a year old, but it offers some insight into what he's become.

Unfortunately that's part of the recall game. They have to recall it when a problem is found, but the counter measured parts have to be designed and manufactured. If it's going to be for a prolonged period of time, they should set you up with a rental instead of one of their loaner cars. 

Comment 24 May 2017

The Bulls win behind defense and Jordan hanging 60 on whoever tries to guard him. These dudes don't even know what defense is. Pippen would frustrate LBJ and throw the Cavs completely out of sync.

Not that long ago I fell down a flight of stairs like a slinky. Except I had to walk back up the stairs to take a piss because I thought the basement stairway was the bathroom door.
