|2008-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)||No one hit 370 carries in 2007, but are there any running backs you recommend avoiding at all costs this year (other than Larry Johnson)?|
(Matt from (Minneapolis))
|Willie Parker, because of everything I've been saying about Rashard Mendenall. Parker just isn't that good, and his primary attribute (speed) is much more useful on a team with quality run blocking. Mendenhall is a better back for a Pittsburgh team where the offensive line is weaker than it has been in a decade. (Aaron Schatz)|
|2008-04-24 11:30:00 (link to chat)||If the Chiefs are in total rebuilding mode, shouldn't they just trade Tony Gonzalez and Larry Johnson and start over?|
(BL from Bozeman)
|I can't imagine anyone taking that Larry Johnson contract off their hands at this point. Gonzalez might have some value, but he's also a 32-year-old tight end. His market's likely a Day Two pick. Is that really worth it? (Bill Barnwell (Football))|
|2008-01-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Please tell me I'm wrong. But I have been watching college basketball for thirty years. The skill level has steadily (and in some cases drastically) fallen since those Larry Johnson-led UNLV teams of the early 1990s. Since then, college basketball is nearly unwatchable. Though somewhat better the last two years, I will never believe that any national champion these days could stay on the court with those Runnin' Rebels, or Jordan's North Carolina team, or Drexler's Phi Slamma Jamma team. |
(DokLivy from Austin, TX)
|What I can say about this is strictly from an NBA fan's perspective of the college game. I used to watch much, much college basketball than I do now. Part of it is that -- and this is going to sound like blasphemy here -- I don't really like the NCAA tournament. I used to. But for whatever reason, I've just come to believe the purpose of any postseason format is to do the best job of determining the best team in the sport. (An residual attitude from baseball, I suspect.) I don't think a 65-team, one-and-done free for all accomplishes that. But the other part of it definitely traces back to the trend of the top young players leaving school after one or two years or skipping out altogether. That diminishes my interest and, I'll admit, I've been paying a bit more attention the last couple of years because of the NBA's new age limit on draft eligibility.
At the same time, college basketball fans I know -- and there are a lot of them here in Kansas City -- don't have any problems with the quality of hoops being played at that level.
Another key factor, perhaps THE key factor, in my declining interest in the college game is that my school, Missouri, has a program that is in complete disarray. I'm talking to YOU Quin Snyder. The Tigers have never recovered from your presence. (Bradford Doolittle (Basketball))
