The West should be much improved this year.  I haven't been following those teams all that closely but it seems like many of them have upgrades in coaching and recruiting.  Those are the lifeblood.

I have heard of that guy.  Impressive gene pool.

It's also impressive they have two walk-ons that earned many awards and scholarships later.  I remember hearing Fada's name a lot.

I notice a lot of downvotes for opinion around here lately.  I usually reserve DVs for banishing trolls.

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

Yeah, sometimes I think I know them a little too well.

Our neighbor kid was on that swim team.  He had to practice from zero dark thirty to class time, then he had to practice some more after class.  They had a real commitment to excellence.

Wow, what a lot of comments on this.

I'm not a fan of his because of the way he ran his mouth when he left.  But we all make mistakes, don't we?  I'm sure I have left the impression with certain people I am the biggest jerk in the world.  But there's always a chance for redemption.

I think there's a good chance he gets to play some this fall, and I hope he does well.  He certainly has the talent, if not necessarily the size. Fare the well, Tate.

I read that headline and thought, I feel like I entered the Twilight Zone many years ago and I can't find my way back out.
