BOOM now thats what I'm talking about, James Gang.  Have seen Joe Walsh in concert at least 4 times and it never disappoints.

this is an easy one for me, My brother held his bachelor party in Seattle and one night we went to this restaurant downtown called the Metropolitan Grill or "The Met" and they serve a 6oz steak from a small farm in Northern most Japan in really cold environment called Hokkaido Snow beef from Japanese Black Wagyu cattle. The guy only processes two cows a month and the meat is only served in 4 restaurants in the world. the fat on this steak would literally melt in your fingertips if you picked some off.  Best steak I've ever had. 

The guy that owns the farm is actually a dermatologist and raises the cattle as a hobby.

Oh man, old Bert rolling thru the streets of Boulder would be a site to see. ton of friends live there and I use to train up there.  talk about a recipe for shock and awe on both sides. I don't think either side of this equation are ready for the other hahaha

Don't disagree on many athletes beyond football as prep attendees but I know they rarely if ever offer the prep academy slots to non athletes. I gives them a 5th year since technically they are not playing a sport at D1 and you only have 4 years to complete your degree at an academy, there are no RS Seniors.

I have intimate knowledge of this as my son was recruited by them and while they do have different admission standards but it's in different categories.  The other thing is the Coaches do not recruit kids that they know will not thrive there. It's kind of like their own governor on the situation.  Academy athletes have to meet different standards but it focuses on grades

the problem with this premise is that in professional baseball you have way too many things like guarantees on salaries and player bonuses, the PA will sue the shit out of the league because they can't PROVE that the cheating actually worked. The Astros had the best road record in baseball that year out of every team and a better road record then home record which is the only place they used the system.  I agree what they did was egregious but you can't ban them from the playoffs, a lot of the players on the team now weren't on the team then and then what about the players that drove this system but are now somewhere else? they get to get off scott free? it just can't and won't happen

Comment 15 Jan 2020

No offense but I don't think you understand how things work.  The owner didn't actually have to fire either of them and could have just made them sit the suspension out...so then what? so people like you can say OH OH OH I bet they are coaching in the back ground their cheating their cheating.  Firing them was a huge deal and huge blow to the organization and if you think they will just pick up where they left off then I don't really know what to say to you because that isn't how it works

Comment 13 Jan 2020

No offense but Texas is in no way TTUN or even remotely close.  I'm sure your disdain for Herman has something to do with your comment. Texas unlike TTUN does and can recruit elite athletes and have been far more relevant than TTUN of late.  The difference between the two is that Texas has the talent and resources to get back to elite and CFP contender far faster and easier than TTUN, for TTUN to get there it will have to be a whole sale change from top to bottom.

I live in Houston and I can tell you we DO NOT WANT THIS KID, serious serious character issues.  There is so much more than the altercation with the coaches, a couple of teammates and the phone deal at state. you KNOW the coaches had to be fed up if the night before the Texas 6A Division I state Championship they send the kid home for not turning his phone in. That game is the the biggest game in the state from the largest schools in the largest division. It's like watching two teams full of nothing but 3,4 and 5* kids. This kid needs serious help and mentoring. He is a very me first type individual.

Man this is actually a pretty tough question, I have watched a significant amount of tape on most of the players coming in and without being hyperbolic I really think this could be the best class we could see for a long time. Here is my list in order of impact

1. Julian Fleming- this is after reading yesterday's 247 UA AA game practice thread where they were identifying the Alpha of Alpha's and they said it was Julian Fleming separating himself from everyone else...that says A LOT

2. Paris Johnson jr.- This guy could be the second coming of Orlando Pace but more athleticism 

3. Jaxon Smith Njigba- This kid has SERIOUS SERIOUS upside and is very mature

4. Gee Scott Jr- someone I have been calling Mr. DFO ( Mr. Day F'ing One) because he will absolutely make an impact Day F'ing One, I don't know if I've ever seen a more focused, determined, hard working young man. 

5. CJ Stroud- this kid is special, VERY Special, I would even say he is a Justin Fields but better passer

6. Lejond Cavosos- man, this kid is going to help continue to elevate us as the real DBU. 

6a- Ryan Watts - Both of these young men will push each other to be the absolute best.

7. Kourt Williams- Yet another potential for a special special linebacker 

this class has so much potential it's scary and with what happened Saturday night and the level of anger the guys coming back will have...oh man.  If we aren't pre season number 1 then there is something seriously wrong with people who do the rankings

This might be the best summation I've seen about the officiating and how it effects subconscious bias and decision making. I live in Texas and I can 100% tell you that nobody down here thinks anyone from north of the Mason dixon line knows how to play football and the view of the B1G is about the same as the PAC12. They literally think its powder puff football.  

When I was in the Marine Corps I was in a recon unit and we were attached to an intelligence unit. We took a class called the Psychology of intelligence analysis and how all the decisions we make are rooted in our subconscious and how and where we were raised. that truly being objective is almost impossible and that is why there has to be a system of checks and balances when coming to conclusions that matter and can effect change. Anyone that thinks that the SEC crew didn't have a subconscious bias is bias themselves. They may not have overtly meant to make decisions but their orb of life allowed that bias to effect how they made decisions Saturday night

I tossed and turned thinking about this scenario for about 1 sec.  I have a close friend and former business partner who swam at Clemson ( they no longer have a swim team due to title IX) and we watched the 2016 game together and after Saturday night and his tweets to me after the game I don't think I've ever wanted to see a team curb stomped so bad that it has every player and coach for Clemson on the ground sucking their thumbs after the game. I hate LSU but like the old saying goes "the enemy of my enemy is a friend" ...I have affectionately started referring to Clemson as "Dicks in South Carolina"  or "DISC" ...I am so sick of Dabo Swinney and his aw shucks I'm just a good ole boy from the south shtick. GEAUX JEAUX and GEAUX TIGERS!
