Re Maduro... is anybody really surprised about this? I mean, it's been the worst secret in the world for about fifteen years.
Does Eddie have kids that are the appropriate rock-toting age yet?
I agree; I think this is the problem with college basketball, and AAU ball in general - a lot of these kids are just plain getting bad advice from someone.
So, as a relevant point - during the Badger's rise to power under Barry Alvarez, and even after he retired, St. Louis was a very important pipeline for them for bringing in skill position starters who could compete with Ohio State & TUN.
There are some great programs that produce great athletes in the area, it's great to see the staff at tOSU bring those kids in.
Look, nobody has said it to this point, and I'm not one that can reasonably get flamed on the "ethnicity" call - the dude is sporting a South Indian name, and this is South Indian Psychology 101.
My parents did this shit, my friends parents did this shit, and all of us knew other Indian kids who fucking did this shit. This is absolute enablement by an Indian mother at its finest - "No, I didn't do the research, but I'm getting paid to ask questions, so answer the question, I don't care how off it is." F*cking own it, and stop being a little b*tch.
This is grounds to pull your Desi card bro. If someone from Hasan Minaj's team is trolling these boards, I hope Hasan roasts this dude on his next episode of Patriot Act.
AFAIK, most major universities have a discretionary fund which is raised from a combination of student fees, donations, and fund management by the university or other parties. Obviously, dollars grow over time, and the university has a substantial amount of dollars at its disposal.
It's similarly structured to discretionary spending at other government institutions.
1st rule of having your IFFB card...
That said, there are physiological changes beyond what shaving and lighting will do for someone's physique.
I'm REALLY surprised Landers got left off the invite list.
When you have kids, it's hard.
The only thing I can think of is that they feel that Wade will continue to play "slot" corner instead of play on the outside.
Who knows tbh.
I still think Burrow should have been the starter ahead of JT Barrett.
So, here's my two cents for what it's worth - "missing" on Taj Boyd altered the trajectory not only of Ohio State's path, but I believe it launched Clemson to the heights they are at today.
The loss in the Orange Bowl was soul crushing on so many levels, including losing Braxton Miller as a QB.
Ben Roethlisberger is a decade before this, but that's one that I wish we would have taken seriously as a QB recruit instead of trying to pitch him to play TE...
Pro scouts do consider production as a factor in draft status.
I'd make the argument that if Vannett and Heurmann would have played at Wisconsin or Iowa, they may very well have been first round picks.
Al did a hell of a job with the 'Backers, but I still miss what Luke Fickell was able to do :(
Red Bull? Pfft. That's an insult to Coach Coombs. More like Rocket Fuel & Nitroglycerine.
Queen showed why, as much as I love Tuf Borland's attitude, we need more athletic guys out there.
I'd argue that Burrow should have started in '17. TBH, hard to argue with the results, given last night's coronation.
Personally, I think Venables has too much baggage to be a HC at a top level Power-5 program, maybe even too much baggage to be at a mid-level Power-5 program like Baylor. We'll see though.
That said, given Kirby Smart's offensive struggles at UGA, I can't imagine a program of that caliber coming calling for a defensive coach in general. Just my two cents.
Yet, Venables still makes as much being a DC as Hafley will as a HC. Food for thought - we could certainly have paid Hafley $2.4-$3.5M a year if we really were motivated to.
While I upvoted, that's what is referred to as a gambler's fallacy. On a RNG roll of 1-10,000, while it is statistically probable after 10,000 attempts, the RNG will give you a result of 10,000, it's not more or less likely from attempt to attempt. Ergo, "Random Number Generator."
Let's not confuse "limited coaching experience" for someone who will be an incompetent lifer. Señor Tusk is laughing somewhere that someone will hire him back into that capacity.
Guys. I went to school in Madison, and live in Minneapolis, where it is significantly colder (and windier) than Columbus. 9 degrees may be an exaggeration, but realistically, a mid-range North Face coat will be plenty to keep them warm walking to class.
Clemson paying their players a shitload of money and fueling them up on PEDs will do that sometimes...
I thought Martinez's plan was never to sign/enroll early?
