[quote]would you be in favor of LSU "taking advantage" of the new rule?[/quote] I don't really care, but clearly you do. So with that being said, instead of worrying about the sec office, or alabama, or auburn, or Mississippi st, why don't you focus all this ignorant and misguided energy you ...

[quote]why don't you 'open your eyes' you fricking moron. Maybe all my facts aren't straight but my message is dead on.[/quote] Maybe? Your facts are "straight"? Your first reaction to this situation is to blame the sec office, which is located in Birmingham not Tuscaloosa, for something th...

[quote]SEC offices in Tuscoulousa so it comes as no surprise that LSU gets f'ed again by the SEC. How much more blatant can you get in showing favoritism to one school and outright cheating.

re: Strike Back Returns Tonight - Open Your Eyes
Just watched the first 2 episodes. Is it just me or has there been a drop in production value/quality this season? The fight/gunfire scenes are almost in slow motion and seem ridiculously staged. The dialogue has never been great but even that seems more forced now. ...

[quote].300 hitter is considered good. Returning a serve 3/10 in play is good for a tennis player?[/quote] Not the same thing. A .300 hitter hits the ball much more than 3/10 times. Getting on base is not the question here, it's hitting the ball. The closest equivalent in tennis would be every...

[quote]We're talking peak athleticism here anyway. At the very peak, what you are asked to do within your sport.[/quote] Which hurts your baseball argument even more. The baseball play you're describing, which is probably the most athletic play possible by a baseball player, happens how often? On...

Dendy and Lawson just came off of peaking for the NCAA championships. The pros won't be doing that until their national trials at least, maybe not even until August for worlds. You don't think collegiate men and women are each 3 of the top 5 200 meter runners in the world do you? And where are yo...

Secondly, they have to throw it 80+ meters, while maintains control of their body, within the sector. And if their rel...

Decathlon long jump had mostly tailwinds. Qualifying and final in the open long jump were mostly i...

[quote]Hmmm... I'm not so sure of that. I'm not familiar with other decathletes' stats, but Eaton (obviously an outlier) doesn't fall into that category. He's still a world class long jumper while training for the decathlete, and if he were to train for say the 400m or 110 hurdles exclusively he co...

[quote]Well to be fair, Eaton doesn't run 10.2 and 45 consistently, those are his PRs. [/quote] He's run both of those times on multiple occasions, in multiple years. And without ever training specifically for either event. [quote]But if Russell dropped pounds, I don't see why not. His explos...
