"An abbreviated summer season would be better than no football," -- what a stupid thing to say. You ever played a noontime game in 103 degree weather and 70% humidity? You might as well stick them with tainted needles and bet on who makes it. Just stupid...
My most painful memories in sports all involve teams I was actually a part of, not just a fan of. How bout we talk about something more positive.
The reason why NY's numbers are lower is there have been nearly 50000 confirmed cases in NY. They are further along in the epidemic and have more confirmed cases in low risk groups. Generally speaking, the death rate falls as a disease progresses through a community. Having said that, this disease looks to at least double the mortality rate of an unvaccinated flu. The main issue is overloading the healthcare system, which leads to more people dying who could have possibly been saved. The fast spread of this disease and lack of specialized treatment combined with the media panic is what is making this disease so dangerous. The media and public response is proving almost as harmful as the disease itself.
Athletes 1980 to present... All of you guys that included Spurrier should just start over. I don't understand so many people picking Shaq. I would have go with walker, thomas, manziel, and helton. Bo Jackson gets his own statue on top of everyone else. And as a state Homer I would likely replace helton with the thrill.
WTF! That game was 25-19 for literally as long as it took to kick our pat. The pass to Lewis was a touchdown making the score 25-19 with something like 15 seconds left. This play never happened, we failed to even properly execute the onside kick drawing a flag and the tide downed from the V formation and ran out the clock. While it is possible the kick could listed up there, that last interception was a pretty good choice. Stop bringing up crap that never happened.
Pete maravich is considered by most to be the best ncaa basketball player, ever. Bailey Howell is the easy number two for the conference. Many of these players were great, but NONE hold a candle to the two above. And both of you them predate the threepointer. Varnado is one of the best defensive players ever, but including him here when he wasn't even the best overall player on his team is a miss. Your stats are incomplete, you should have the same columns for all and denote the year the 3 pointer was introduced and possibly dunks as well. Neumann was a scoring machine because he played on an otherwise awful team. All numbers have context, as research would tell. Pistol, and aside from Howell he is quite alone. More interesting would be determining the third best, as that is where argument is justified.
Why do people keep listening to this moron. Hughes team will continue to outrecruit OM. Idiot. At this rate there won't even be 2020 season. I got sent home, wasn't sick, got cleared, went back to work, and got sent home again. I will pay double value for a pack of cottonnelle or Scott ripple. Idiots hording toilet paper. Just stupid. Cancelling large-scale events actually makes sense, and different parts of the country will crest at different times, but August seems a bit optimistic when the entire states of California and New York are shutting down.
My bad on that, dyslexic moment. Cutting Bailey come back to bite, too. Shame about the young kicker, he could nail 60 yarders but only hit half in 30-40
I think maybe Mullen should be thanking Prescott, too.
Completely agree about Jones, but referring to 2017 as an example I do not agree with. Cowboys were bad all around and losing one ol to retirement and one to FA came back to bite them injuries wiped out the starting line. The cowboys hinge primarily on Tyron Smith and Landon Collins. But that was the best offense in the league last season. That defense was awful. Zeke did not play up to his new contract, either, and I cannot fathom how three OL were deserving of probowl spots when that oline failed in several gutcheck situations. Prescott did a great job last season and did while 20 backup qbs were making more than him. No, he's not the best qb in the league but he has been underpaid for four years.
Why can't Missouri fans present more concise opinions with qualifiers that at least seem to founded on some type of sensible logic? There are a few of you on here. Sometimes I even agree with the just of a comment; but then I read all the included blather and the unbidden thought , "Missouri fans are just... Awful." Just prances right into my brain. It's not necessarily accurate, but it's a direct result of my mistake of reading comments like the one above. I do want to make a game at Columbia, but then I see stuff like this. Drink s comment is spot on and hilarious, though.
Overall, not a bad order. Obviously, Fournette was an easy 1. Too bad about marshall, guy still got drafted, which was impressive, but injuries continued. Man, he was fast. By the way, not mentioning Kylin Hill amongst all those 2017 backs was a miss. If you have a prime example Of something from the sec, use that first.
I don't have a problem. I only read a couple of paragraphs. I can stop any time. I only read like ten comments. I do not have a problem. If had a problem, I wouldn't have stopped, right?
Okay, any of you reporters who graduated after 1995 need to do some research. NOT NEW, JOE LEE DUNN HAD PLENTY OF SUCCESS IN THE SEC. 66.9 rypg 1.8 ypa 156 pypg 67% opponents drives resulted in 3 and out 1.2 offensive tds allowed per game That's our 99 defense, that team would have went to Atlanta undefeated with a slightly competent offense.
We usually were heavy on lineman, but that can work, too, wi th the right middl e linebacker and ends who can cover with interior lineman who let them. Shift from 5 down to three down, etc. But will double the amount of time our nickel back plays, which is good.
So... He flagged a coach who was still on his sideline because said coach was upset about an admittedly messed up call. Nobody likes you, zebra.
What about the 60 or so scholarship players who just started their second or third staff? Or our linebackers who had a different position coach for going on the 7th season? If he qualifies, then so do every single one of them, not to mention every one who signed in December. Lame, Connor, just lame. Stupid, obsolete rule they should have removed years ago anyway.
There are only four sports that even have the stupid rule of having to sit out if you transfer. In literally every other sport in the NCAA student athletes are grant one unrestricted transfer. They were also the sports where coaches could restrict transfers. Thank God that's pretty much over, but football, basketball, and baseball players should be afforded the same opportunities as other athletes. I can't remember, it might apply to softball, too, but that would be it. Stupid, arcane rules put in place to protect coaches and programs over the student athletes. I don't know how anyone can justify their continued existence.
Bulldogs are actually more generic than tigers
Our colors are maroon and white. The gray has traditionally been used as contrast, offset, outline, and occasionally the color for the bulldog bit is not one of our colors. I agree about the gold, but some of our best alts have been black. I personally wish we would stick with something simple like the centennial uniforms, with maybe alts for veterans day. I am sick of the gold. And our school needs to pick a logo. We've got the banner m, we've got acorn thing, and we've got that ugly bulldog over the m thing. One tiff with Nike and we and Adidas can't figure it out.
Look at who's projection it is, some yahoo from Yahoo. I imagine Perry will be the highest drafted forward, NOT CENTER - ESPN are idiots, drafted from the sec. He's averaging a double double, is on track to quadruple his assts, shoots 50% from the field, has improved his ft and 3pt accuracy, he's increased his steals. And at 6'9" 250# even by today's standards, that is not a center when has that kind of offense. He's one of the best pfs in the country, (KM finalist so far) and possibly the begst player in the sec. He did NOT have good game last night, though.
