re: Putin the Checkers Player - alpinetiger
[quote]Forgot to mention russia is getting paid in rubles for their oil and the ruble is the best performing currency in the world vs the dollar in 2022[/quote]Exchange rate was 81-82 prior to the sanctions, now USD/RUB is 64. That's some pretty effective checkers. Also Russia will have all of easte...

re: Putin the Checkers Player - alpinetiger
[quote]The oil part is not speculation. Both China and especially India both have Putin bent over and putting it to him. Income from oil has dropped substantially for Russia while it has soared for China.[/quote]You seem smart: [link=(https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-05-12/russia-oil-...

re: Dee Davis transferring. - alpinetiger
Cameron Rising has chunks of QB's like Bo Nix in his stool. Oregon's QB was trash last year so it will definitely be an upgrade. This is a decent ranking in the article below, but I'd put Rising and Robinson at #1 and #2. Rising is in a run-first offense but has a 147 QBR, 20 TD/5 INT. Williams, ...

[quote]Stoker's[/quote] The Stoker's lived four houses down from me growing up in Auburn. We lived on Peachtree Lane and they lived on Azalea Drive.

re: What if Putin’s strategy is more complex - alpinetiger
[quote]Putin gambled and is at least getting by temporarily in beating the economic sanctions. [/quote]Putin and many Austrian-aligned economists believe that the GDP calculus to measure the size and health of a country's economy is flawed and incomplete. This contra-theory to GDP measures has been ...

re: What if Putin’s strategy is more complex - alpinetiger
[quote]Their style is blitzkrieg, and nobody knows why they are deviating yet.[/quote]Russian military battleground strategy is the opposite of blitzkrieg, and has been since about 1920. Look up Deep Battle Strategy. Not understanding this one element of the Russian military is why many halfwit moro...

re: Auburn Baseball…. - alpinetiger
Great win coming from 4 down in the 1st! - I'd give the game ball to Sheehan. Down 4-0, 4 innings of shutout ball with 4 K's and 1 BB. If he has his feel back like he showed today, he's a legitimate top line (4th) starter, which we'll need in the SEC & NCAA tournaments. This is setting-up like Ho...

[quote]I never once saw Cambridge dribble drive to the basket and his shot was a disaster this past season.

re: Auburn Baseball…. - alpinetiger
I'd give the game ball to Armstrong. He came in after Barnett gave up the dinger with three strong innings. He has that nasty two seamer and didn't walk anyone. Butch mentioned in the postgame that he's been working on some mechanical things for 7-8 weeks and this was the second week straight he'd c...

[quote]the guards become better defenders[/quote]We'll be limited on the upside defensively because of our size. I think even Zep is only 6'1". I don't think Green will ever be a good enough athlete to be a plus defender but I hope he does improve. K.D. is a Hamburgler with steals but he also has is...
