Yep... playing against him this week. Nothing like starting the week 41 points in the hole.

Great article. Stick with it to the end.
I know there are some people out there who don't like Dale Brown, but I love him and he's a hero to me. When I was growing up, I watched him and his LSU teams and I learned to dream big and believe. What a great thing for a kid to learn from a coach.

I've come around 180 degrees from my original stance on this position.
Sing it loud. Sing it proud. Suck that Tiger dick, bitch.
This is Ole Miss we are talking about. They and the rest of the SEC need the full brunt of our hate.
Lately, we have spent much more energy hating ourselves.

My take: if you feel this young man needs guidance, and you feel you have something to offer in that regard, do it.
As men, we all want to respect each other's freedom to choose a path or make a life decision. But we also owe a duty to our young men to offer advice and share our wisdom. It's u...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Antonio Brown's value? - SpqrTiger on 10/21/14 at 12:58 pm|
In addition to being good, Antonio Brown is just fun to watch.
I LOVE having him on my team. He's one of the players that makes football worth watching, and he scores points for me... what more could you want?
I've drafted him three seasons in a row now. Amazing FF player.

We live in different times, people. What else can hold someone's attention these days for four hours (of stadium time) much less eight hours (of on-campus time)?
The games look SO good on TV, and you can go watch it right outside the stadium via HDTV and satellite hookups. You c...

I have experience with both St. Aloysius and St. George and can tell you that both are good, with little difference between them.
If the objective is getting into Catholic High, either one will get you there.

I disagree with the notion that following your passion is bad advice.
Here's the thing... what he's saying isn't the worst advice in the world, honest. Rowe wants kids to focus on what will get them paid. That is HIS passion. And lo and behold... he's following it.
But that's what human soc...

There's just not a lot of talent down there. I grew up there. I know.
Lack of talent leads to uninspired coaching.
Uninspired coaching leads to failing programs.
Failing programs lead to aging facilities.
All of the above lead to kids not caring and not wanting to play ball there.

| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Thoughts on CJ Spiller and Joique Bell? - SpqrTiger on 10/14/14 at 10:40 am|
Ugh... man, I hate to hear you're that desperate for a RB.
Spiller really isn't being used at all in Buffalo. Their O.C. must hate him or something.
I would look into picking up Bolden from the waiver wire.
| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Brandin Cooks vs Detroit - SpqrTiger on 10/14/14 at 10:37 am|
I would be okay with starting Cooks then, as a WR2 in your setup.
Garcon can score points, too, but I prefer Cooks in PPR....
| Fantasy Sports Board|| re: Brandin Cooks vs Detroit - SpqrTiger on 10/14/14 at 9:51 am|
I would tend to agree, but the question is whether you have any better options to start. Who are your WR's/Flex?
Cooks is a solid PPR start every week. But he needs to score some TD's to reach the next level of FF workhorses.

Look, here's the thing. This is a really young team, and guess what? They just learned a HUGE lesson: how to win a close one on the road, and how to come back and win. You have the benefit of perspective. You hav...

Find the place you want to live first, and a job second.
A hard worker can always find a job anywhere because he knows there's nothing wrong with a day of honest work, regardless of what it is.
But working in a place that you love... that's the thing that's hard to find.
