Damn, like father like son. Y’all need to start hitting me with with a photoshop of his head on my body when these things happen as a more personal crying Jordan.
Right, I wasn't suggesting that's how the money should be divided. I'm just saying if you did, among every athlete, it's well over $150,000.
Nothing that I said was mean, or even joking. I've known his name was Tathan for months. If I wanted to make fun of him for it, I would have done it months ago. I think it's a fine name.
To be clear, I'm not making fun of his name. His name is totally fine. I just realized yesterday that most people didn't know his birth name was Tathan, and I thought it was relatively common knowledge. So I decided to throw in the article that talks about the origin.
To be clear, I'm not making fun of his name. It's a totally fine name. I just realized that the vast, vast majority of people didn't know that was his name and I thought it was relatively common knowledge. So I linked the article talking about where it came from.
I'm definitely leaning towards the USA Today one being correct, since they are the ones that sponsor the poll. I believe ESPN made an error.
It really is not quite as simple as simply teaching them to turn their head around. It's all about whether the corner is "in phase" with the receiver and able to do that. If you're not, and you turn to look for the ball, you're probably giving up a touchdown with it going over your head. I agree that he could play certainly draws a lot of penalties that could probably be avoided, but turning to find the ball isn't the magic fix for that.
I also think Damon Arnette is fine and even good, just like I thought Damon Webb was fine and even good. I think the issue is that Greg Schiano's scheme required him to be an absolutely elite, lockdown cornerback, and he's not that, even if he is a solid player. And it didn't help that he's played alongside guys like Denzel Ward, Marshon Lattimore or Gareon Conley his entire career and is the easy target to be picked on. Is he a high first-round talent like we've been accustomed to? No. But he's still solid.
While I don't know him or his family personally, I gather that they are comfortable financially. So I'd imagine it wouldn't be a huge issue even if it had to come right out their pocket.
