At what point is the recruiting pitch to a kid like Andande going to become "hey, come be with us for two seasons, we'll coach you up, you can get snaps in garbage time and then transfer out to a smaller school and be a two - three year starter there" and the pitch in turn to Miller would then be "yeah, we recruited this kid, but we mutually agreed he would transfer out in two years and the starting spot would still be yours".

As always, saying this is going to be the ruin of college football may be a little exaggerated, but at the end of the day we need to at least think about these things and what they could lead to.

TL;DR - letters combined to form words about thoughts in my empty head.

TL;DR the TL;DR - stuff

Pitt: I don't think he was calling him a liar, I think he was saying that if, in fact, that was the case, he still didn't blame him for leaving.

Edit: apparently I should refresh before replying next time.

The embedded tweet does not show the entire picture, therefore doesn't show the entire schedule. There are 2 byes in week 4 and 6 byes in week 10.

If you click the tweet, it will open in Twitter and then you can see the whole thing.

Cledaybuck - you think the Indians' attendance is bad, I invite you to take a look at the Reds game last night.... oof! I think the official number was somewhere around 7500. Dolan can hush and count his blessings that his problem aren't that big.

Comment 28 Mar 2019

The scary thing about the Indians is that you have a perennial threat at a Cy Young in Kluber, but they also have 2 guys who have made noise and been in the running in the past (Carrasco and Bauer) plus now they have two guys who have both had breakout years (or shown tons of potential) in Clev and Bieber. It's crazy to think that we have a guy who is considered for the award year-in and year-out, two guys who have legitimate chances of being in the top 3 and two guys who are considered dark horses in the race as well. 

Comment 27 Mar 2019

Guys, can't we all unite around the fact the Dolan is dumb and find a way to be friends?

Comment 26 Mar 2019

some of us have to work during the cheap games lol

Gr8bucks - I felt like when I was watching him at the state tournament this past weekend he looked noticeably more sturdy than he did in the highlight video, even though it's only about 2 months later. I think he's at the age where boys start to fill out quickly and if he does that without losing his athleticism and smoothness, he could be troublesome to slow down in the near future.

Brutusbro - I haven't gotten to watch Hiland much this year since I live on the other side of Columbus now, but the only chance they seemed to have was if they would have shot about 50% from 3 and 65% from the floor instead of 28% and 37%. Also shot 44% from the line... that line won't win you many big games unfortunately.

babe

I'm happily married, thanks though.

I have been to a game, but it was a Saturday night. And I drove 5 hours to be there... and paid $40 for a seat in the left field bleachers. I know a lot of the games are not sold out, but I think that's a problem across most of baseball, not just in Cleveland.

(edited to say that I've been to way more than one game in the past 20 years, but I was referencing my sole trek there last year)

And sadly, that's the problem with having an owner who has the team as a business instead of a passion, as someone said earlier. If everyone from the front office, players and fans wants to win more than the guy holding the checks, you're never going to get very far as an organization.

Comment 26 Mar 2019

Q, I was trying to give them the benefit of the doubt, but you're right. I should have said "to accept what Dolan would pay him"

Comment 26 Mar 2019

My apologies for letting you down. I do see how misleading and disappointing that would be. If I were an expert gif creator, I would make up for that, but alas, I'm not.

Comment 26 Mar 2019

You're not wrong.. but until now, he could have denied it.. theoretically. Now it's just out there and they can use that against him to drive the price even lower.

Comment 25 Mar 2019

With the inflation trends we're seeing right now, some of these may end up being bargains in years 4 through 6 or 7, but I think at this point teams are willing to over pay in years 1-3 and 8-10 in order to have a bigger bargain in years 4-7.

We all know Machado, Harper and Trout will likely not be worth what they are paid when they're 38-40, but at the same time, if they are making 25 - 35 mil while they're 32-36 years old and other stars are at 40 - 50 mil... that's a win if you ask me.

Comment 25 Mar 2019

CT - this is exactly my problem. Dolan has every right to complain if he's writing the checks to keep the stars and no one shows, but if you only want to give what's comfortable for you but ask the fans to shell out $40 for just bleacher seats, I start having issues with that.

Comment 25 Mar 2019

My thinking as well... but if you come out and admit that you plan to let him walk, aren't you shooting yourself in the foot and tanking his trade value? Now teams will know for certain that we're trying to dump him for something and offer us significantly less.

Comment 25 Mar 2019

Watched Etzler this weekend as his team won the D4 state championship and he looks like he certainly has a lot of potential. He's a little gangly, like most younger teenagers are, but he's already pretty smooth for being 6'8" and still young. He can shoot, handle the ball, rebounds well and finished strong. If he fills out in the next two years he could be a really good one.

Obviously, the flip side is that he's still young and could fizzle out, but his brother who is a senior this year also looked like a well rounded player and he clearly comes from a basketball family. As much as I want to dislike him because he beat my high school team in the championship, the idea of him playing for OSU is exciting to me.

Here's to hoping Coach Holt keeps the talent flowing in!

Comment 13 Mar 2019

All of this arguing is preposterous. Who the heck cares where the kids come from as long as they play their rear end off for the scarlet and gray? They could be from the moon for all I care... just lace up and give 100% and beat Michigan.
