  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

I think that he can say this is the case without too much second-guessing (as opposed to some whippersnapper who is clearly using it as stepping stone). My feeling is that if Schiano can use it to reinvigorate his career by turning the program around, it's a win-win.

C'mon, everyone. This was funny!

Both blitz-happy guys who have had some pretty notable success at different stops over the years. Shoop was Franklin's DC in helping to re-establish PSU as a top-10 program. It will be interesting to see how he and Don Brown co-exist. Maybe Harbaugh is envisioning Brown's departure sometime soon?

I don't think anyone is arguing that Victor was consistent. He certainly came in very raw physically and technique-wise. When he bought into the grind, however, he improved, looked far more invested, and became a team leader. I'm rooting for him, as I'm sure many on this board are. That doesn't mean I'm a homer, or don't see his deficiencies; I just see no reason to continue to beat the same dead horse when a player has graduated. Yeah, he dropped some passes, but the catch and run vs. PSU is a play that not that many players could make.

Two things:

1. He dunks pretty easily. It's not a Vince Carter, getting your arm caught in the rim dunk, but it's very quick and effortless.

2. Overall, he's really fluid. Seeing him as a DB is not a stretch at all.

I know you said you're using your own evaluation, but Edwards-Helaire is just ahead of Williams as a recruit (in terms of 247's rankings) and behind Teague, Crowley, and Chambers, who are all in the same ballpark as Etienne. You have to use an actual measuring stick if you're going to compare college juniors and high school seniors.

There was a case for a 10k run recently where a female reporter had her ass slapped by some dude. In this day and age you cant even look at them. Even if they have yoga pants on.

OK, Romeo

Dude was handing out cash. And people are saying the cop is grandstanding? Please.

Comment 16 Jan 2020

What if this were a cop responding to a completely pedestrian incident and some no-name smacked him on the ass? He would do the same thing. 

The cop is not grandstanding because he expects to be able to do his job without some shit for brains interfering. OBJ is a dumbass.

When he visits, I think they'll be able to get a better feel about whether he is really interested and really mature enough to make this sort of move. If he seems disinterested or just off in any way, I think you take a pass even if he says he would want in.

I knew he was good, but he so far exceeded my expectations this year, I feel like I don't even know football. His improvement, combined with some much, much better coaching, was incredible. Congrats to Joe.
