Since the softball question does not specify slow-pitch or fast-pitch, you could get one more coach on the team by defaulting to slow-pitch which uses 10 players instead of nine.
The fatal flaw with any rankings is that they are someone's opinion, nothing more. With something like quality of players and coaches, informed opinions are of a little more value than uninformed opinions but one informed opinion is not necessarily better than another informed opinion. With something like "gameday traditions", uniform appearance and so forth, no one opinion is better than any other opinion. I find this type of ranking as completely useless and annoying.
I agree. While I don't see any problem with the ordering of these QBs within the SEC based on what we currently know, I cannot believe that there are over 100 college QBs in the country better than any of the SEC QBs. Many of the QBs that are higher rated are rated higher simply because they have better numbers because they face lesser defenses.
The "Memphis outright" bet is a bit puzzling. You'll have a hard time getting anyone to cover that bet considering that Memphis is favored by a touchdown.
I see no evidence in anything that I have read showing that this young man is being treated any different than any young man who killed Joe Nobody under the same circumstances. There is nothing to indicate that these charges are "trumped up (invented as an excuse or a false accusation)". The charges appear legitimate and reasonable to me.
your post is misdirected. ugachris is the one that brought up money. If you want to know what money has to do with it, you'll have to ask him. I was responding to his comment.
Nkemdiche's father is a noted brain surgeon. His mother is a high political official in Africa. One thing that he has never lacked for is money. That's a large part of his problem.
Like every state, The University of Louisiana is a system, not a single campus. However, the main campus is in Lafayette so they have just as much right to call themselves "The University of Louisiana" or Louisiana for short as Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi or Tennessee.
ah, a vacuum cleaner tube rather than a "vacuum tube" which is an electronic component that is almost obsolete.
I read the headline and had an image in my mind of some guy chasing Kelly with a vacuum tube from an old radio. Maybe he could throw it at him. I think that perhaps they meant "fluorescent tube" instead of "vacuum tube".
It absolutely isn't a vacuum tube. Anyone who knows what a vacuum tube looks like would know that is not one.
Did anyone else find it curious that the scandal involves Adidas and the schools that have contracts with Adidas, yet the photo for this article shows a Nike ball with the Nike swoosh prominently featured?
It does seat 71,000 if you really cram them into the bleacher style seats, but there isn't parking for anywhere near that many people and the roads are such that a crowd of half that would be backed up for several hours.
There isn't a suitable stadium in which to hold an NFL game in Birmingham.
I guess to each his own poison. I, for one, am a fan of good old fashioned defense and think that 13-3 makes for a very exciting game.
I know it's impossible and it wasn't without a bit of sarcasm that I posted it. The Downtown Athletic Club and the media need to stop pretending like the Heisman is more than what it is. I am perfectly happy for there to be awards just for position groups, but if an award is going to claim to go to the most outstanding football player, they need to consider all football players.
I wish that there was an award for the best player in college football regardless of position.
No one has any idea what discussions have gone on concerning his employment other than him, his agent and the other parties involved. To pretend otherwise is just silly.
What a meaningless exercise and a waste of time to try to put together a list like this in January.
"What did Alabama's National Championship loss mean for the SEC?" It means that Alabama lost the national championship game. Nothing more, nothing less.
It was just one of several very bad coaching decisions on that sideline.
there were some absolutely horrid coaching decisions in that game. It makes me wonder if Nick might be starting to lose it. Clemson had clearly watched film and prepared well for the game.
No. Once the season starts, it is rare to see an 11 against 11 scrimmage featuring all of the starting offense against all of the starting defense. The full team portion of practice is devoted to going against the schemes you will face on Saturday, not the schemes that your own offense/defense run. During skills portions of practices, there are some one-on-one or small sided best vs. best, but the QB isn't going to be involved in that typically and if he is, it is not going to be with any hitting by the starting dline at all.
As with any starting QB, he wears a no-contact jersey in practice and the Dline that he faces "every day" is Clemson's scout team.
" including five players who spent their college years in the SEC" Atwater didn't spend a single minute in the SEC, much less years.
Should be a defensive game. Iowa will not score 24 and not sure state can score 28. Both defenses are good and both offenses are suspect.
We aren't talking about someone misspelling a word. We are talking about a 300 pound man beating a woman.
