Does Harris have more upside? Sure. Is he the long-term answer? Probably.
Do I trust him as THE guy for 50-60 minute? Not yet.

Since you're coming from so far away, I'd go the Stubhub / Ticket Exchange route. Right now you can get tickets for around $300 a piece but they're in the upper decks. However, for that game those probably won't be bad seats because the stadium will be PACKED. One year I got tickets on Stubhub for a...

I've bought sports tickets on Stubhub a good amount of times over the years. In fact, this weekend I just bought tickets to the UCLA vs Oregon game. My experience is that the tickets aren't gonna come down much EXCEPT a few hours before game time. But, of course you run the risk of the tickets selli...

Someone just mentioned his hands.......which are indeed good. But what I'm impressed with, every time I've seen this kid, is just how nimble his footwork is. For a guy his size, his footwork is amazing. He's showing moves that you'd expect a much smaller back to be making.

I'm actually a little surprised that she HASN'T recruited as well as she did at UCLA. Her last class at UCLA was going to be a monster. But then again, it does take time for a coach to establish their program. So, as long as we're not taking steps backwards I'm willing to cut her some slack............

Tigerbait, no doubt that that debacle with Forthan has hurt us. Had she kept her head on straight and worked on her game, I believe she would've been one of the greatest to have played here. But by the same token, you don't want a player around who really doesn't have their heart into it. Too bad it...
