  1. Tommy Hanson time tomorrow night :)

  2. For those interested, ESPN2 is showing Welcome to the NFL with Matt Ryan and a couple others in a couple minutes. It's supposed to be on now, but another show is just ending.
  3. Is the current one that bad? I've been to it several times (the most recent being last year), and I didn't think it was terrible. Just seemed like another arena to me.
  4. Oh, we're going to be making the tourney....there's no doubt in my mind. We've lost a few very close games so far and we weren't having any luck with our open-3's. That should even out by the time the years ends.
  5. We need to save some of these 3's for the upcoming games. Big Brian Williams looks great this year. He is in much better shape.....and now he's trying to hook up with my friend.
  6. And rightfully so . I can't wait to see how good he can possibly be with Monte coming in and drawing up some nice schemes.
  7. Me saying "I don't know" was another way of me saying "In my opinion" or "To me..." Read my post again. This is semantics. There's no right or wrong answer. I know that you like to point out "facts" whenever you can, but in this case, there are none. You say that the term "kids" is appropriate for college athletes. I say it's not. It's a matter of opinion.
  8. I see that you edited. I was going to say that it's pretty silly to attack me for voicing my opinion on such a silly issue like this. I've just always found it odd. I never said that people who use that term are idiots or anything of the sort.
  9. I don't know, I've just always found it odd that a lot of people refer to college players as kids. I'm sure I've done it before.
  10. Man, I wish we could play like this more often. We're contesting shots and swarming around the ball. In a lot of our games it just seems like defensive doesn't matter to them. There's no doubt that we have the talent to be a top-10 team....it's all about our defense and starting to make more of our open-threes (which we've done tonight).
  11. On another note, why are we still calling these students/athletes "kids?" As far as I'm concerned, 18-22 year olds who are going to school full-time and are off on their own from their parents don't count as "kids" to me. /end rant
  12. Well it's obviously not going to happen, but it would be fun to see Knight coach in the state.
  13. Sounds like it could be Buckcherry - Crazy *****
  14. Hopefully this will be a good one. With the way we've played lately, it wouldn't surprise me to see UF come in and rough us up. We have had UF's number recently, though. Starts at 9.
  15. Man, what a sick shot by Shumpert. 1 second left. This GT team is going to be very good next year if Lawal, Shumpert, and a few others return.
  16. Starbucks is one of the shittiest franchises in the US. Average coffee and ridiculous prices....not to mention their refusal to send coffee to our troops a few years back.
  17. I fully understand where you're coming from. However, I do think there is a common misconception going around concerning the Patriots' organization and their willingness to spend top dollars on players. People tend to make NE out to be the Florida Marlins of the NFL, and that's just not the case. Case in point....In 2000, when Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli took over for the Patriots, NE was in a very similar situation to the one we found ourselves in last year and even this off-season. The Patriots were in cap-**** and were in need of rebuilding that entire roster from top to bottom. While they cut a lot of their veteran, highly-paid players, they still made some acquisitions that didn't seem to "fit" what they were trying to do. Right before he got injured, the Patriots made Drew Bledsoe the highest-paid QB in the league with a contract worth over $100 million. They also signed Lawyer Milloy to a big contract valued around $35 million. And they also brought in several of the "prized" FAs after that 2000 season, but because they weren't blessed with a ton of money, they couldn't sign everyone they wanted. So even during their supposed "rebuild," NE wasn't too frugal with their money. The big thing to Belichick and Pioli was not looking at things in terms of a dollar-amount. In reality, no single player was going to be off-limits for them to target. The whole thing for them was all about determining whether or not that player's performance on the field was going to make the contract worth wild. I know that that seems like an obvious thing that all GMs and owners would look at, but you'd be surprised. I think Haynesworth just makes a ton of sense for us. If Dimitroff is convinced that Haynesworth will not only accumulate very good stats, but will also (more importantly) make everyone around him better on defense, I wouldn't at all be shocked to see us give him an enormous contract. That may seem like Dimitroff was breaking away from the "plan," but we'd have to wait and see. I don't think you can put a single price on a guy like Haynesworth who would instantly make our defense much better.
  18. I don't see how anyone can watch ESPN shows for hours at a time. Unless there's a game on, I refuse to watch Rome is Burning, ATH, or any of that crap. As for me, I'll watch Seinfeld at 6 and sometimes at 7. And I'll also watch Family Guy when they show it at 8 and 9 sometimes. Occasionally when I think about it, I'll turn on Dirty Jobs or the FOOD network.
  19. I don't think Tennessee is going to re-sign him. He's going to hit the FA waters and I think we have an outstanding shot at him.
