Posted Sunday October 20, 2013, About: Report: Trent Richardson's entourage worried Browns
When Trent Richardson rushes for 1500 and 11, I'll buy you steak dinner at the finest restaurant in Houston. LOL. 1500 yards on what, 500 carries? Maybe 750 and 8 (goal-line runner). Ahmad Bradshaw was clearly better than Trent Richardson before he got hurt.

How does 3.5 YPC look now? The mistake by Cleveland was picking him at #3 overall, not trading him away. BTW has anyone made more draft mistakes than Cleveland Browns version 2.0, in the history of sports - Courtney Brown, William Green, Gerard Warren, Brady Quinn, Brandon Weeden, Tim Couch, on and on and on.... I think they have 2 decent #1 picks in over a decade (Thomas and Haden, maybe Mingo we'll see).

As his earnings power diminishes as his lack of explosiveness becomes apparent, these hanger-on will fade away...
Posted Saturday April 13, 2013, About: Girardi blasts MLB schedule
Girardi trying to make a helpful suggestion. Not a bad idea. I'm sure there are pro's and cons. But it gets people's attention to have a headline 'GIRARDI BLASTS SCHEDULE'. This coming from an Indians fan.
Posted Monday March 11, 2013, About: Why Nolan Ryan won't end up with Astros
If you are going to be bad, you'd might as well be really bad and cheap. But how cheap? True story, 2 weekends ago the Astros hosted the Astros Foundation College Classic with local college teams including Rice, Texas A&M, Houston and North Carolina - here at Minute Maid Park. Ushers asked fans to return foul balls, as not enough cases of balls were purchased to allow fans to keep balls hit into the stands as souvenirs. Wow! So it has come to this, pinching pennies to skimp on buying baseballs.

Ah yes, what has the Crane ownership team been doing since the acquisition? Slashing payroll to $20 million, and... ? I know where are prospects in the pipeline and you can't right the ship overnight, but Jim Crane had better not been the next Jeffrey Loria. Looks like another season of 100+ losses, but this had better be the last one for a while.

[there were quite a few good Texas High School QBs, besides Luck and Manziel, to come out of Texas that didn't play for the Longhorns!! Foles, Ponder, Mallet, Dalton, Stafford, Kolb, Flynn, McElroy and Brees!!! ]
Well, you can't get them all with scholarship limits. The Horns had a good run with Applewhite-Young-McCoy (Chris Simms never really panned out, but his senior year was OK) and then hit a dry spell starting with Garrett Gilbert. I don't think Luck ever wanted to go to UT, and Griffin would not have started over McCoy - or so he would have thought at the time. The last three years have been mediocre by UT's standards, in terms of recruiting. The Aggies have a leg up for now.

Cut him now and move on.

Posted Saturday September 01, 2012, About: Bob Stoops: OU critics of Landry Jones are 'insane'
Sandy Underpants, which mediocre conference foe will USC lose to this year? Oregon State in Corvallis? It's become a habit for the Trojans.

Landry Jones is not a big game QB. When you're up by 28 against Kansas, he can put up big numbers. Trailing A&M or Oklahoma State in the 2nd half, he falls apart. Front runner, cannot handle adversity.

Most people from Michigan will say the same thing about Detroit!
Posted Saturday December 10, 2011, About: McCoy's dad rips Browns' move
The last person who should be asked their opinion is the player. They are not in condition to answer if they can go back on or not! The player will always say yes. Come on people!

As a fan I wondered the same thing, but it is time for McCoy Sr. to take a step back.
Posted Saturday September 25, 2010, About: Big 12 expansion talks to heat up again?
I'm a UT fan and this talk of joining the Pac-10 strikes me as ridiculous. Conferences should be geographically based. Maybe merge SEC west with Big 12 South. Merge SEC East with Southern ACC teams. Merge northern ACC with the best of the Big East and MAC. Merge Big 12 North with the best of the Mountain West and WAC. Back in the day when conferences were geographically based, it was good enough to win a conference (win the region). Bowls were exhibitions and sometimes the 'national champion' lost their bowl game. Now we have this complete OBSESSION with 'Who's #1' and it may ruin a lot of what people enjoy most about college football - the regional rivalries. Instead of just enjoying college football, everybody sucks and everybody is overrated because so much stock is put into popularity contests (polls).

There are too many D-I teams (sorry, FBS teams) - 118 or so. Cut the number to 8 regional 'BCS' conferences with 8 teams each; 64 teams. Each plays 7 in-conference games and 5 'non-conference games' AGAINST BCS OPPONENTS. 8 champions play in a playoff for the title. Finish last in your conference, get dumped into 'non-BCS'. Non-BCS winners get promoted to BCS conferences! European soccer style - finish last and the whole team gets demoted to the minors.
