When has the NCAA really shown compassion, cared about a student athlete, and their PR image at the same time?
I don't think he was viewed as a "can't miss" type. If I remember right, there were some that thought he was to slow to be an impact player. He ran a 4.9 in the 40 at the combine.
That said, I felt he was a can't miss, and I so wanted the Bengals to draft him. When he fell out of the first round, I thought for sure they would take him with the 4th pick in the 2nd round, but the Lions grabbed him 2 picks in front of them.
That would be correct.
It appears that he already has an offer from Georgia.
Don't know what he is like now, but when my son played with him on a state championship team(albeit small school), he was a fast and big wide out. He faced many double teams, and would out work, and out jump for the ball. He holds more than a couple school records for receiving.
He also ran sprints/relays on the track team. He competed in the state track meet in the 100, 200, 800 relay, and 1600 relay in his senior year.
Would love to see him in scarlet and gray.
Yeah, I am being a homer.
If the SEC played 9 conference games, how many teams would they have 8-4, or better? Probably close to 5, I imagine.

Alexsa Dietrich recently received the incredible news that she is cancer-free. After grueling battle with the devastating disease, the 21-year-old, who blogged throughout her harrowing experience, posted a video to Twitter that shows her moments after learning that she had won the fight
“I remember the night before getting my latest scan I cried and cried and prayed and asked God to please let all of this pain and suffering end,” she wrote. “24 hours later I got a call from my doctor saying there are no more tumors left and I’m crying just even writing this I’m so darn happy. My whole world was flipped upside down getting diagnosed with cancer. It changes you; changes the way you look at people and the world and I know it’s made me so grateful to be alive.”
Now that life is gradually returning to normal for the college student, she hopes to help others who are still in the trenches.
“Going through this has made me realize how much I want to dedicate my life to helping people,” she wrote. “NO ONE and I mean no one no matter what age should have to endure this kind of suffering. I can’t wait to lift children’s spirits up going through this because there is always hope and light at the end of the tunnel. I want to see joy in their eyes and no pain and I know I can help bring happiness and hope to them no matter the stage. Life is so unpredictable and everyone should be endlessly grateful to be healthy and living a normal life.”
I don't know him other than from this site. From what I could tell, our political beliefs do not line up, but he seems like a good man. I usually enjoyed his write ups, and hope to read more of them here in the future.
Hard to believe, but the defense actually played better after Bosa got hurt. Nice to see that everyone was able to step their game up. Now I hope that they can all play to that level all of the time.
I will admit that I wanted them to bench him. It got ugly for him in the game. Glad to see that he was able to find some confidence and get a couple catches after the drops. Hope he comes back from this and sets the world on fire the rest of the season.
That was an ugly limp that he had when he came back out after the half. I half expect him to be out 3 or 4 weeks at a minimum.
I'd argue that a Penn St loss would be sweeter.
I thought it was sad enough to know that the world lost this talented singer. Now we find that it was senseless as well!!! I don't think any less of her, as the music world is littered with similar stories, but I wish someone would have been with her to prevent this.
The death of The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O’Riordan has been ruled a drowning due to alcohol intoxication by British authorities, an inquest at Westminster Coroner’s Court reportedly revealed on Thursday.
O’Riordan was found dead on Jan. 15 in her hotel room at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
According to the BBC, coroner Dr. Shirley Radcliffe said that O’Riordan was submerged face-up in the bath at the time she was discovered in what was “a tragic accident.” There were no signs of injury or self-harm found during the post-mortem examination, the outlet reported.
Authorities discovered a bottle of champagne and five miniature bottles on the scene, in addition to “containers of prescription drugs with a quantity of tablets in each container,” the BBC reported.
Toxicology tests showed that O’Riordan’s blood contained “therapeutic” amounts of medication but 330mg of alcohol per 100mls of blood, the BBC reported. That’s “four times over the 80mg legal limit for driving,” according to the outlet.
I agree with many that have been already listed. I'll throw in a couple more.
3. Buy a gym pass and try to be a morning workout guy. It sucks going to sleep earlier and maybe even sacrificing an hour or two of sleep but nothing is better than getting a workout in and leaving the gym as the sun is rising.
Absolutely agree with this. I tried going in the evenings, but spent too much time waiting for someone else to finish what they were doing. Now, I get up by 4:30. In the gym before 5, done by about 5:30. There are a couple people that will show up around the time that I leave. Otherwise, I am the only person there. I love that there is finally a 24 hour gym in my town.
I also started training to run with the C5K/C10K program. When the weather permits, I try to do MWF with that, and Tuesday/Thursday lifting. Up to the last run on the C5K program, and will continue on with C10K. If you download C10K on your phone, the first 8 weeks are exactly the same as C5K. Averaging about 10.5 minutes/mile right now. Hoping that drops as my weight does. I am soon to be 48 and am 6'3"/295. At one point I was 325.
Whomever plays C for us (Taylor) should automatically be put on the list given our recent history.
More than anything else, I would like to see a change in the number of championship banners. The more the merrier.
Similar to your Halloween suggestion, the Fourth of July is usually the best day of the year to go to an amusement park. Have done this multiple times, though it has been several years. I forget what year, or ride, but the new coaster at Cedar Point had a 30 minute wait, compared to 2+ hours on a normal day. Several other rides we were asked if we wanted to ride again. It might have been Magnum that we rode 3 straight times, without getting off.
