Can I choose Zach Johnson? Although Kuchar is playing very well, I think the added pressure of trying to win in front of his home crowd hurts him. Zach Johnson is my 'guess' for this week.

Are we having another contest this yaer to pick the major winners?
Posted Monday March 24, 2014, About: Indiana teen will bolt Bloomington
If he leaves early, his scholarship should not be available to give to another player for at least 3 more years. I agree he should turn pro. I do not like that he even enrolled. Colleges should enroll only college students, not pros.
Posted Friday December 06, 2013, About: Freeney was scammed out of $3M
It is not easy to find a good professional money manager. They do need one; it is essential, even before they sign any contract, so they can plan and manage their income and their investments. It does take years to grow a knowledge base about investing and to learn about risks and volatility and investment capital, etc. This is time these athletes do not have and they must find someone they can trust. Not easy to do. There are many Bernie Madoffs out there.

I've seen Cleveland play a couple of times this season. They are not that good. Maybe they will improve, they must if they are serious about the playoffs.
Posted Tuesday November 12, 2013, About: NBA out hundreds of millions on legacy deal
Same thought...if the deal can be passed onto the estate, this deal would require a large up front sum to be equivalent. I am sure the present value can be assessed to define a number that is equivalent to receiving $19M per year for infintiely, plus an applied growth rate of say, 10%. If the amount were $1B, after taxes it would be $550M (trusts, non-profits, etc are not included in this calcuation). At a rate of return of 5% the annual interest would be $27.5M. The need would be to compare that, and how to invest it, to be ahead of staying with the NBA's annual payment and projected growth rate.

There are other considerations, such as a desire to leave lump sums with beneficiaries, or to allocate the incomes to beneficiaries. It seems this decision would be a result of what is offered, and what are the finanial goals of the Silnas
Posted Tuesday November 05, 2013, About: 'Sharp pains' for Bynum
He looked good last night. Not explosive, but able to post up. Minnesota decided to double team him when Bynum got the ball in the post
Posted Tuesday October 29, 2013, About: Horford looking for a way out of Atlanta?
I would trade Bynam and Zellar for Horford....
Posted Wednesday October 16, 2013, About: Lexi Thompson wins LPGA Malaysia event
Lexi is the better golfer, easily. Michelle Wei is better looking. Which do you think will make the more money?
Posted Tuesday October 01, 2013, About: TJ Weist named new UCONN interim coach
UConn has the worst offense in the FBS and the AD promotes the offensive co-ordinator, who is reponsible for that offense, the head coach? It seems that the OC should have been fired and replaced rather than the head coach
Posted Friday September 20, 2013, About: Greg Norman: I was too stubborn to win more
Why did noone choose Tiger or Phil or Furyk? Guess it was just not enough participation
Posted Wednesday September 18, 2013, About: Meyer open to playing two QBs at once
Two thoughts...1) any time there is an injury to the knee it does not heal in just a few weeks. I can't believe that Miller will be 100%...2) I see a risk that if Miller does play he and the offense will be less efficient due to his not being on the field much during the games. I would be hesitant to bring in Miller to start against Winsconsin and Northwestern when he has not played hardly at all in the first set of games
Posted Wednesday September 18, 2013, About: Texas A&M breaks fundraising record with $740M
I don't understand why people give so much money to support a team and overpaid coaches. I can think of numerous charitable opportunities hwere it would be far more beneficial to provide $740M.
Posted Wednesday September 11, 2013, About: Clemson QB likes A&M over 'Bama
I would take his bet. Alabama will roll over A&M's defense
Posted Wednesday September 11, 2013, About: Will OSU's Miller start this weekend?
I don't know how anyone fully recovers from a sprain in a week or less.
