This is my #1 draft pick...: Well maybe a little lower than first. Size, strength, aggressiveness, quickness. With a little help on his technique, he could be an excellent offensive lineman.

Take the skinheads bowling, take them bowling

Thanks, Drood. Now I remember why I quit coming here. I happen to watch Fox News and that makes me an undesirable, right?

Mich, #9 Boise State gets to play #11 TCU. #13 Oklahoma State plays #17 Oregon. The team getting the shaft is Texas Tech. An 11-1 7th ranked Texas Tech plays #25 Ole Miss! Why not Boise St. and Texas Tech? Now that would be a good game.

Tuberville Out At Auburn

He stepped down because he didn't want to get fired. I agree with The Qatarian, this one is crazy. Imagine Penn State pulling that on JoePa. He'd have been gone in 1988! (5-6-0)

Looks like Auburn pulled a Frank Solich.

Boston Herald Should Name Its SpyGate Source

Interesting column, rcade. After reading it, I think the answer to your question becomes obvious. If the unnamed source is someone in the front office of the St. Louis Rams, revealing the name of that source would be detrimental to the career of the reporter and hurt the newspaper's ability to get stories from high ranking officials.

De La Hoya wins easy decision

My guess is De La Hoya will probably have to fight someone a little tougher than "Tomato Can Sam" before he gets another shot at Mayweather.

hater, Good to see you still Hater'n. I got hooked on Sumo while living in Hawaii. (Thanks, US Army) Akebono was a Yokozuna back then, and 6 times a year they'd show the 15 day tournaments on local TV. Even got a chance to see an exibition tournament In Hawaii in '92. I've always been intrigued by the agility and quickness of these huge guys.

Here's Asashoryu's draft stats. He's 6' tall and weighs 324 lbs. Needs to work on his tsukidashioshidashi and oshitaoshi techniques if he wants to get into the NFL.

there's really is no comparison. I beg to differ: The size of the dohyo (ring) is 4.55 meters or just under 5 yards. Plenty of room to sidestep and execute spin moves. These moves by the way are used by many sekitori (wrestlers). The mawashi (thong) is the ONLY target for one to hold, but certainly not the only way to defeat your opponent. I'm sure if defensive lineman wore only mawashi, offensive lineman would find a way to get a holding penalty. Did you watch the video? Clearly this yokozuna (grand champion) has exceptional upper body strength as do many in the upper ranks of sumo. He's not ripped, but he doesn't lift weights. Think what a strength and conditioning coach could do with him. hip flexibility is not really considered an asset. Your kidding, right? Look at the negatives for Anthony Collins or Geoff Schwartz. I say take off the mawashi and give this guy some pads.

Thanks, Tinman, for your showing such high regard for other people's posts, and your uncanny psychic abilities. Lighten up...

Open wheel racing in the US may finally be united again.

I gave up on CART (and the scabs) a long time ago, so frankly, I won't believe it 'till I see it. Danica=scab

Bob Knight Resigns

To answer the question, "Why now, in the middle of the season?", read this. Excellent point dyams. Here is Coach Krzyzewski's quote, and more.

Calling All Rookies

jojomfd1: You're right. I'm a fool, and your post more than any other pointed this out to me. No more excuses or trying to explain it away. The remark was sexist. It has no place here, and I sincerely apologize for making it. Thank you for bringing me back to reality. THX-1138: I will take your advice and take some time off the site. Read but not respond. hopefully some self imposed exile will help those I offended find peace and forgive (and forget) my ignorance. yerfatma: I'm kinda slow so if you don't spell it out for me, I don't get it. Nobody likes to be taken out of their comfort zone. At first I resisted but after some reflection I realized I was wrong. So once again, to all who took offense, please accept my apology.

Calling All Rookies

THX-1138, What is it? I'm not being serious enough, so people take me seriously or is it my jokes are so bad people think I can't be joking so I must be serious?
