New era baseball in general is dumb. Game last night, Winker is up and shift is on. He shows bunt, but takes the pitch. The 3rd baseman goes to move back to take it away and the coaches tell him not to, they give him the bunt. And he instead decides to swing and ground out. Isn’t the name of the game to get on base?
One last thing...I'm certainly not the only one that cringes every time one of the other lackey's on the podcast talks am I?
no you are not. Do we even know who they are? They ask questions and chime in like they are a “live” audience with zero knowledge of ZS, his past, the stories he is telling.
Riverview cafe, yes. In Snead’s ferry
We took my in-laws last night. My FIL is very hard to please, and doesn’t give compliments much. But he told the waiter it was the best seafood he’d had in his 15 years of coming here to vacation. The fried catfish was the best thing I’ve had down here. Awesome!
I’ve done the ribeye and shrimp both times and it’s been awesome.
The pork chops were def the table favorite though!
Sears Landing is also nice.
I was actually looking for Riverview cafe. Have you been? It rained like 4 straight days last year, so we were out at the gift shops and asked for a local restaurant and that was where we were told to try. Homemade (free) hush puppies are awesome and after 2 meals of 5 people, not one bad thing to say from anyone.
We still have a week left so will definitely look into your food recommendations.
So far we’ve gone to Ricks Restaurant (always a favorite of the wife)
lo-re-lei bar, they had really good mahi
shuckin shack - going again tonight as it was a group favorite. Crab legs were good
riverview cafe In Snead’s ferry - this was a hidden find and really, really good. Will be going once more next week to take my in laws
daily grind for our morning coffee and smoothies, they are run by a family from canton OH. Fractured Prune is very good as well, we stopped and got 6 yesterday!
thoughts on Hulas? We always see it and the sign claims best burger, you obviously listed otherwise
I briefly played at a bad d3 school before an ACL tear and a move back home. I came in with 75ish freshmen, 11 of them didn’t play high school football. The statement “anyone can do it” is more so if you’ll pay, they’ll give you a jersey on the JV team
We are typically there on Memorial Day, which is a big beach celebration and a turtle release. We always walk down and it's very cool.
The island is very quiet, which is why most go there. You don't see any touristy things going on; parasailing, jet skis, etc
Was there to witness! Crowd was awesome and hope the jackets can pull off the series now
go look at the numbers of last years team with Hue and then once he was let go. Sure, Williams was "in charge" but the defense stayed roughly the same numbers wise, I think we were in the bottom 10 of every category. The offense, however, went from a bottom 5 to a top 10 (I think 7th) and Kitchens (with the help of Baker) was the reason behind that. Kitchens would be an NFL HC for some team right now or next season, the Browns chose to keep him
Wesson was going against Oden everyday in practice. It's been noted in a few articles and shout outs to Oden throughout the season
Haskins will still go in the 5-10 range. Teams always get desperate and trade up to get a QB. He might fall a little, he might go to a surprise team, but I will be shocked if he’s not a top 10 pick and not surprised if he’s not top 5 via trade.
I am more so comparing Bama to someone like OSU. They might be equal to Auburn in terms of prep, but not somebody like OSU.
This coming season, Bama plays at home vs Western Carolina while OSU has to play Penn State. OSU will need all hands on deck and no resting players the week before TTUN. Bama might not even dress its starting offense for that game.
It's obviously all a bunch of hypothetical's but, say Fields has to miss the PSU game, most of us fans would be worried about that game now. If Tua has to miss the Western Carolina game, would Bama fans even notice a difference?
Alabama could not dress a single starter and win by 3 scores though. It’s about player rest, prep time, no travel. It’s always a bad team and always at home. There is no real pressure of losing but it also affects the chance of them losing the following week if they had to play starters that week, gameplan for that team, travel, play at a different time, etc
Away teams wear white jerseys.
It blows my mind! We only set ball screens. We pass left, cut right. Never pass left, screen right. We don't screen for Kaleb to try to get a switch on the block. We don't pick the picker.
Even basic high schools run quick hit out of bounds plays for shooters, we never do any of that.
I am pretty sure Funderburk is the DJ Funderburk starting for NC State along with Beverly. I was watching them play earlier this year and they mentioned him as a OSU transfer
YES PLEASE! Even as a project, this is the type of kid you need even on the bench. He is almost the polar opposite of Kaleb, in a good way. When Kaleb is too slow, change it up and not lose size. Hustle, block shots, rebound, and dunk the ball.
These got claimed via Facebook
I don't understand why, and am kind of surprised, that college football doesn't go to more 3rd down packages. The NFL does it every drive. 3rd and 8, we know we have to throw here, they know we have to throw here, so let's get more guys on the field that can catch the ball and move the chains. I thought too many times last season we tried to stay with our base package just to not sub and it cost us. When we need a 3rd down conversion run out 3 WRs, a TE, and a pass catching RB. This season that could be any combo of guys but would love to see Wilson and Mack out wide, Hill in the slot, Ruckert at TE, and McCall in the backfield. This is a lot tougher on the D to cover all these guys and one should be 1 on 1
trying to be unbiased, how does a HS kid not want to play for him.
1. He is coaching at a power house
2. He was just producing in the NFL within the last 5 years.
3. You get on twitter (as all HS kids do) and there is Hartline running routes in practice with the guys. Then a video of him competing in mat drills with the guys. He brings so much energy. I would be begging him for attention and an offer
Because he also didn’t bring a championship to Cleveland? Cmon man, you don’t have to like him for not leaving a sustainable team behind, but he did what he had to do to win. And he didn’t have to do that in Cleveland. He chose too
