re: Sunderland have let go of Adam Johnson - wm72
[quote]grooming is a psychological term for sure i cannot imagine how it could be a crime (or how you'd prove it) but you always have to remember, Europe (and the UK) are much more authoritarian and much less free than the US of A[/quote] I think they have similar laws all over the US of A ...

re: Link to LA Governor threatening to shutdown college football - wm72

re: This year with Avery Johnson proves just how bad Anthony Grant was - wm72
I agree with you about saying that Grant's certainly not an awful coach. I also agree that he could have won more with better players. He actually had a pretty strong team when Green, Mitchell, Hillman etc were there even if those weren't his recruits and there was some depth to run his p...

[quote]Then again, Taylor and Hall are probably the two best in-state big men recruits Alabama has produced in recent history. Except for Haas, but he didn't have any real SEC offers.[/quote] The thing though for Alabama fans, fair or not, is that Alabama basically had [i]at least [/i]one good bi...

[quote]I really like Jimmie as a guy. Always plays hard. You can tell he cares a lot. But if we are honestly having a serious conversation about Anthony Grant's ability to develop post players, and Jimmie fricking Taylor is the best example you can come up with, well...lol. Case closed.[/quote] Ye...

re: This year with Avery Johnson proves just how bad Anthony Grant was - wm72
[quote]And I agree with most of that. But the idea that Grant can't develop players when he was one of the keys in developing our B2B team makes me laugh. He's pretty much Frank Martin without the temper from an in-game perspective imo. The biggest difference between the two is that Martin has be...

re: This year with Avery Johnson proves just how bad Anthony Grant was - wm72
[quote]Very good and accurate summary. Basically the same points I was trying to make earlier in the thread, just expressed more eloquently. I agree with just about all of it. [/quote] Thanks. I hadn't even read through the thread til now and see you had already posted most of the points. ...

re: This year with Avery Johnson proves just how bad Anthony Grant was - wm72
Taylor's best stretch on the offensive end, in my opinion, has been the last month or so. He's still not really that polished but he's finally beginning to show some signs of 1) looking like he knows what he want to do as soon as he catches the ball whether it's set up his man for the litt...

re: This year with Avery Johnson proves just how bad Anthony Grant was - wm72
Alabama fans tend to be a bit harsh about Grant and often add some criticism that's not warranted. However, he was unsuccessful there due as much to his own shortcomings as any type of "bad luck" that any coach doesn't deal with. He failed because: 1) he simply didn't recruit to the...

re: Who will make the NCAA tourney in your opinion? - wm72
[quote]I think SC, A&M, UK are in, with LSU and Fla on the bubble and Bama, Vandy, OM and Uga needing a really good run to get in. [/quote] As it stands right now, I think Florida is very solidly in and probably 7 or so seed. They have a good RPI, only a couple of losses not to ranked tea...

re: Frank Martin is frustrated with the lack of recognition the SEC gets in MBB - wm72
I'm not sure I completely agree about the lack of Top25 rankings however I certainly agree with Martin that the SEC has a depth of quality teams this year even if they may be lacking in terms of a few truly elite ones. The thing though is that the SEC needs to keep winning and showing well i...

re: Updated SEC Basketball Standings; plus weekend schedule - wm72
[quote]Actually a 9-9 conference record would put Alabama at 18-12 instead of 20-12. That would require running the table at home and stealing a road win at either Florida, LSU, Kentucky, or Georgia. Certainly possible but very difficult at those road venues. If they do get to 18-12 and 9-9 in the l...

re: Basketball Stat of the Night: Most Wins vs Top 25 Teams by SEC Teams This Season - wm72
[quote]Looking back for Alabama, it really sucks that they couldn't finish against Oregon. Alabama seemingly did everything they could to beat them, and let it slip away. Retin had an off game, and Hale was out. That would almost for certain put AlaBama a lock for the tourney now.[/quote] Yeah, i...

re: Leicester - wm72
Enjoyed the really good posts on Leicester from both you guys. I've only seen a few of their matches against some of the stronger sides this year but am probably most impressed that they're keeping pace in not dropping more points against the lower half of the table than their competitors. ...

re: OFFICIAL Liverpool FC 2015-2016 Season Long Thread: Gegenpressing Edition! - wm72
It is really difficult concerning ticket prices, especially when you're competing against a few clubs in league (and across Europe) that either have much greater revenue from sponsorship or owners that aren't afraid of losing a lot of money, or both. However, it's also quite a gamble to think ...

re: Alabama's OL, now that the season is over how good were they? - wm72
This year, it was obvious that the inability to block speed rushers really handcuffed play calling all season and, along with some fumbles, was key to the Ole Miss loss. In the run game, the line seemed extremely Jeckyll and Hyde but I wonder if that has a lot to do with the blocking sch...
