re: College women's elite 8 vs high school boys - MetArl15
The HS boys for any 4A/5A school would embarrass them. The lower divisions would win as well without much of a problem. Friend of mine's sister was a starting point guard for a D-1 mid-major. I was a 2A player in Louisiana who was average at best and not even close to a college level talent. W...

Go Dawgs. I mainly want you to win because as a UVA fan, I think you'd be easier to beat on Sunday than Michigan St. I hope I don't have to later regret this post....

re: Most impressive record in all of sports? - MetArl15
Most impressive or most unbreakable? These are different questions. Changes to the game make the former question difficult to measure and allow the latter question to be answered with a number of examples. As an example, no one will ever ever ever break Cy Young's career wins record of 511. ...

re: Vitter trying to close an illegal immigrant loophole - MetArl15
[quote]So should the American born of Diplomats be allowed citizenship?[/quote]Personally, I have little issue with it. Since this thread's debate pertains largely to consitutionality, my interpretation of the 14th amendment is that diplomats' kids are carved out of the citizenship definition wit...

You would have to amend the constitution to make this work. Supreme Court would strike down the law if someone challenged it. Blatantly violates the 14th Amendment....

re: How is NC State's low post play? - MetArl15
Watched NC State play 4 or 5 games this year (2 against UVA). Turner and Lacey can heat up and allow them to beat anyone, but their most dynamic and important player is Barber by a long shot. He's as quick as any guard in the country and can catch fire from outside as well. If you limit his penet...

re: Is Patrick Peterson one of the more overrated players in the NFL? - MetArl15
People are blinded by his athleticism and explosiveness, as they were at LSU. He's a good, almost great corner to be sure, but he is no lockdown hall of famer. If he wasn't such a ridiculous athlete, he'd just be another above-average corner that few people would discuss....

re: Notre Dame 2015 ACC Champions! UNC loses ship for 3rd time in 4 years. - MetArl15
The officiating in that game was horrendous beyond measure. Also, generally hate playing FSU. We seem to always suffer at least one injury when we play them. Hopefully UVA locked up a 1 seed with that win. I will say, outside UK obviously, Villanova looks to be the most dangerous team ente...
