So will Texas be fined for throwing it up??
Oh just saw your post.
TTUN is a hockey school then? I learned something new today. Thank you.
I'm surprised everyone gives Meyer (and Day) a pass about this. You don't need to have a running QB to be successful in the red zone. Teams do this all the time without a running QB with no issues. A team just needs to have better schemes and also better blocking to compensate for the lack of the QB run. Meyer was just being stubborn and not changing up his O enough to fit his personnel.
Wargor, I might need to keep you on some kind of speed dial as my outside voice of reason.
So you know about the time machine, huh? You'll forget this thread very soon.........................
Think he was saying playing for a team with a significant media market so he can get his just due. Playing in Memphis basically cost him All-Star berths and now the same thing will probably happen in Utah since they fly under the radar as well.
Let summarize because maybe I'm confused on how this college thing works. So the grad assistant sports trainer can leave after shopping for the best research opportunities (most money) a university would give them. The faculty liaison to the football team can leave whenever they would like to lead a new dept at any school. That same faculty member will at times actively recruit their staff to go with them as well with no penalty and build that into their contract (common in the research realm); The asst. coaches can leave for an HC position sometimes before the season even ends so they can get a head start on recruiting with their new team and the HC can go to their dream school even with the written contract they sign. However, the NCAA and some fans feel we need to be concerned about the players leaving because they need to show commitment and loyalty to their school of choice. Typing it out really makes it so much clearer for me.
When keeping it real goes wrong!!!!
As a youth lax coach and parent of a kid who just signed to play D3 next season, I can attest this is 100% SPOT ON on everything.
If your kid is interested in playing lacrosse, you need to be taking ownership of their recruiting EARLY and need to be playing in a well-known league and/or racking up the miles and credit cards for the summer/fall circuit and preferably both. Remember start early thinking about recruiting. My son is a goalie and since most teams only run with 3 or 4 goalies max, spread out over several classes the recruiting game was fierce.
The private school thing is so true as well. Especially because the private schools in most states allow you to reclassify much easier than public. We lost the best offensive player on our squad to a....... Private school. Couldn't blame the kid and I honestly encouraged him when I talked to him because he felt bad about it. I knew he wanted to play at the next level and would be able to re-classify down. It was really a no brainer because his parents had the financial means as well. Kid was already a high-level D3 kid before the re-class and is probably a low-level D1 kid by now and is only a JR. He would have been stuck just like my son as it was really a two-man tandem in a non-hotbed that looked good in the school paper but wasn't getting either one them the proper showcase for recruiting. Each game boiled down to him dodging solo and scoring and my son saving a gazillion shots at goalie then hitting him on the outlet to repeat the process. If it wasn't for my son's summer travel team and us going to the various All-star tryouts my son wouldn't have been noticed.
I just logged on to say these notes are indeed legit. The bball game is a dead give away. There is an investigation by the B1G to find out who leaked these according to several unnamed news sources.
His 1996 SWOT analysis still has Circuit City as a threat. Always stay vigilant.
My new favorite boom.
Hey, At least the person watching the news isn't actively seeking out bad news to yap about. Maybe they DVR the news then fast forward past the weather and just get to the crime watch update. Got to get ammo for those #hot takes!!! lol
What amazes me is the number of responses we get for the bad news. If we get a new commit who donates his time at an orphanage, 7 posters might chime in. Let that same commit be investigated for something a week later and there are 100 comments. SMDH.
Beserkr29, I loved the opening thread. Hillarious!!!!!! "Trash Panda's" needs to become some club team name.
