| More Sports Board|| re: Kobe Bryant - torn rotator cuff - AlexLSU on 1/23/15 at 3:16 pm|
I love that Kobe is always promoting that Body Armor drink shite even when he's posting about his body breaking down. "Guys I'm out for the year with a fricked up shoulder. Drink Body Armor though!"
He owns almost as much equity as the founders and reportedly invested $5 million in it over the su...

We look like an AAU team. No offensive rhythm, totally relient on iso ball late in games, coach doesn't seem to reprimand players for stupid plays, etc. We're an undisciplined group of athletes with a nice guy coach that can't make adjustments late in games. We were horrendous down the stretch an...

Good post, although you'll get more responses if you remove the facts and insert more retarded speculation
I feel like Les and Frank will always gravitate to rotating backs, but like you mentioned, they'll ride a guy situationally. I'd say our five biggest games this season were @ Auburn, @ Flor...

Kind of lost in all of this is the future of OPEC nations like Iran and Venezuela that can't survive these low prices for very long. Everyone wants to focus on the impact the price of oil has on Americans, Russians, and Saudis, but what about the Venezuelans and Iranians? Their break-even price fo...

Hope so, he definitely called 5 for 5 on the day of the game last year and was wrong. I think the difference this time is Frank has a relationship with Johnson's father, so much like the situation with Fournette, I think that's the deciding factor.
If we get Johnson...

True, but the two defenses have gone in the opposite direction over the last couple of months. Check out the rush yards given up over the last five games for both teams:
USC - 205
| Tiger Rant|| re: Anyone else believe that our Tigers will destroy ND today? - AlexLSU on 12/30/14 at 7:29 am|
We absolutely dominated A&M and only won by six points. Our limitations passing the ball make blowing a team out pretty tough, and I don't see how our offense makes a major improvement in just a few weeks.
I think we control the game throughout, but the score remains respectable. Something like...

Jordan never shot above 54% during his career, let alone 59% as a rookie. Also, Kobe's MVP season wasn't even close to his best year when you consider his overall game (not just stats and efficiency, but defense).
I think Reggie's opinion has less to do with stats and more to do with fighting. ...
