This highlights something that I think goes largely unnoticed or at least isn't talked about nearly enough. Men's health is impacted by upbringing, and most of us were told "boys don't cry" or had abuse (physical or emotional) that we were just expected to deal with and move on because we're boys and are supposed to be tough. This is, I think, why so many men don't go to the doctor often enough (and I'm just as guilty): we're conditioned to "tough our way through" things like this. Good on Brady Taylor for listening to his body and dealing with his issues to the best of his abilities, and most of all, for acknowledging his anxiety. The first step is admitting the problem.
To all those worried about recruiting rankings, just calm down. Those rankings become meaningless the moment the players step onto campus. 5-star, 3-star, walk-on, guy with the pretzels in the stands... they all have to put in the work.
Damn. I had such high hopes for this kid, too. Good riddance to bad rubbish, I guess. I hope the survivor is okay, and I hope he's gotten a wake-up call.
Don't forget Bam Childress and Taurian Washington as Spring Heisman candidates.
Which one was he again?
A lot of entitlement in these comments today. The coaches are going to do what's in the best interest of the team. You don't want to spend $5 to go to a "glorified practice"? Don't spend the money. Sit at home. I live in Florida and would gladly attend a "glorified practice" in Ohio Stadium if I could make the trip. "Oh, they better put on a show!" They're going to do what they need to do to evaluate the talent on the team, your expectations and demands be damned. Get over yourselves.
Chugunov 4 Heisman. Calling it right now.
Unprecedented secrecy on this one. Not one leak? This is up there with UFOs and the Kennedy assassination.
The Sports Illustrated article on the game showed LaValliere making the tag; Bream's foot was not yet touching the plate. That's my basis.
Reminds me of Bob Uecker in Major League 2.
You know, I used to hate Parkman when he was with the A's. It's funny how a new uniform can change your attitude about a guy. *covers the mic, aside to Monty* He's still a dick!
Top 5 worst calls I've ever seen, in any sport, but mostly football:
2000 NFC title game, Bucs-Rams. The Bert Emanuel catch that got overturned and called incomplete because God forbid Tony Dungy's boring offense get into the Super Bowl over "the Greatest Show on Turf". One of only two sports conspiracy theories that I believe in to this day. (The other involves why the Patriots are the dynasty that they are, but that's another post.)
The Denzel Ward targeting/ejection call.
1992 NLCS, Pirates-Braves. Game 7. Sid Bream was out at the plate. I'll believe that until the day I die.
Chris Gamble's catch-that-wasn't against the Canes that would have put the game on ice.
That travesty no-call in the Superdome on Sunday.
It must have been one hell of a team rule (or a few together) that he broke. Living here in the Tampa Bay area, I was rooting for the kid. USF could use the help; maybe he resets here.
first losing season since Night Court.
Rule #5 of surviving a horror movie:
As a general rule, never solve a puzzle that opens a portal to Hell.
Or, in this case, Ann Arbor.
Yeah, Tate's woofing has gotten a bit hard to hear. It's not like he can't win the job, I just think he thinks he's owed something, and that's not how it works at this level.
Of course, Fields responding to Tate's Tweet-storm by not responding and instead liking Tate's sister's bikini pics... savage.
Good luck, young man, in whatever you do. Except if it's against us. Until then...
Would that be... ruthless aggression?
Can someone post those here? Because science.
