Toss in Tom Allen at Indiana, too. That dude has that historical train wreck on the march towards being consistently pretty good. Considering that they're stuck in a hella bad neighborhood (Big 10 East), I'm impressed w what he's doing out there.

The closest comparison wouldn't be Clemente. He was still playing. I would say the closest comparison would be when Reggie White died in a car accident. Very similar levels of skill, dominance and place in the pantheon of their sport and both just recently retired but still looming largely over their respective sports.

Sure, but only if you don't make the NCAA tourney. Your question is pretty deep in Captain Obvious territory, though.

Let them have their delusions. As it turns out, our teeth and nails are sharper and more lethal than theirs are when both are bared at the same time and place. Chop it up any way they like and it still leads back to the same place: We are just flat out better than them.

That's gotta be painfully difficult to cope with, tbh.

Tbh, i don't think about herbie at all. I mean, he's just a guy on tv at this point. I dont like him or hate him or care about any of his opinions or words. It's a big nothing burger for me. It's hockey season now anyways, folks.

This book is amazing! It sucks BAD at the beginning, but about 2/3 through it, the villain that ruined the beginning of the book is killed off by the protagonist, who completes the heroic quest. A classic literary archetype that works wonders here!

People forget that Pittsburgh also signed Donnie Shell as a rookie UDFA in 1974. Shell is a borderline HOFer just in the same vein as a Clay Matthews Sr. or LC Greenwood is.
