I think Lacrosse today is like what football and baseball were like in the 1950's.....all white guys playing all white guys so it's a level playing field......but you're right about the lack of elite athletic talent. Until the urban black kids start playing lacrosse, the overall talent playing lacrosse is mediocre.

But white guy vs. white guy levels the field.

I'm very happy for coach Alford. It's probably funny from his perspective that he did just as good a job and connecting with Milton and Bijan last year as he did this year with Henderson and Pryor - but he was the zero last year and this year he's everybody's hero (to quote another poster).

Sometimes you're lucky and other times you're not and there's no rhyme or reason about it.

With the Rams willing to take him back (plus give him more money than the Ratbirds were going to pay him) really makes it look like they knew the injury wasn't that serious. Looks like the Ratbirds' doctor screwed the pooch on this one. Oh well...can't really say I feel bad for them.

If I were the Bengals, I'd also carefully scout Ruiz. They have so much need for an OG/Center over the next 2-3 years, but I'm not 100% sure he's worthy of #33. If he is - then take him, but if they can trade the pick and drop back 5-10 picks and still take him, and pick up a 3rd round pick, I'd love it. We can only hope that a team really falls in love with a QB like Eason or Fromm and is willing to trade up to #33 for him.

There's going to be a really good WR like Pittman or DPJ who's going to be there in the third round.

1: Burrow

2: If neither of the two LB's are available (Queen and Murray from OK) then take Justin Jefferson/Tee Higgins assuming AJ Green won't return in 2021. As much as I love OL, I don't think any of the realistic OL options at #33 are worthy of it.

Third Round: Malik Harrison if he drops and you don't take a LB at #33. If that doesn't work then take the best available OL.

My observations living near an upper-middle class part of Cinti:

  • Lacrosse is absolutely crushing baseball in kids' eyes, and you see it in the numbers. Baseball is considered boring - in my eyes, MLB is really going to struggle in the next 25 years as affluent white kids and urban black kids stay away from the game.
  • Upper middle class white parents push their kids to lacrosse and fall lacrosse leagues have been established to support them. There is a very noticeable decline in kids playing tackle football and it will only become more pronounced as time marches on. Football is becoming the sport of urban black kids and rural white kids.

I think it also helps recruiting when a coach has a couple guys in their position group blow-up and become high draft picks. OSU used to struggle recruiting the 4-5 star QB's - now after Haskins blows-up we have guys like Jack Miller, Stroud and McCord committing to OSU.

It's already happened with Coombs, LJ and now Hartline. Watch out if Alford can develop another RB and get him drafted in the next couple years - Stud is doing good things on the OL.

Everything goes in cycles especially in recruiting. Just make sure you have the right coaches. They miss a couple top recruits for a year or two - and suddenly the depth chart looks a little thin. Top recruits notice that (Evan Pryor and the CB who signed yesterday from TN) - and voila, you're the "hot" recruiter again.

You just have to have the right coaches (Stud, Alford, LJ etc) they're going to occasionally strike out with a Carman or a Milton, but guess what they're still widely considered elite coaches and elite recruiters among people who know football.

My question is what happens if the workers at the big food factories at Cargill, Kraft, Heinz, etc. stop showing up to work (or told not to come)?

Trump better fly in Seal Team 6 to save the rosy cheeks assassin and his family!!!!!

Comment 12 Mar 2020

Given the low dollar amount, I'd let it slide. If the IRS has a problem with it (which I don't think they will) they will send you a letter 2-3 years from now telling you how much you owe them and they'll charge you interest on it.

I'm not a big fan of battling it out with HR beaurocrats especially if you're doing something fairly complicated like changing your W-2, however, if you have the stomach for it, go for it.

I hope so, but if not, I expect OSU will be consistent about canceling in-person classes and how they handle large events such as sporting events.

Comment 11 Mar 2020

Coming in from out of town here's what I'd recommend:

  1.  5-way
  2.  2 Chili Cheese sandwiches with onion but hold the mustard
  3. 1 huge helping of Oyster crackers
  4. 1 bottle of hot sauce
  5.  1 Xtra Large Diet Mt. Dew (this helps cleanse the palate between eating the 5-way and the chili sandwiches)
  6.  After lunch make sure to sit in the back row of your boring conference and let the food coma slowly lull you into the most peaceful sleep.
