    mods....this is conf realignment and the summit just added a decent school and we're talking about mountain dew?

    Might I call that a tad strong. UMKC is what it is. 

    Is UMKC called the Kangaroos because they keep hopping around conferences? 


  2. Folks, please don't conflate "illegal" in the NCAA sense (banned) and "illegal" in the criminal code sense. 

    All we know is Robbins' career is over due to an NCAA illegal (banned) substance. That substance is yet to be officially declared.

    Now you're claiming to know what a "neutral observer" might find peculiar about it? I'm by no means neutral, but the caffeine explanation seems to be, by far, the most likely to me.

    If it was caffeine, somebody officially just say it.
    Heck, you'll get pity from me: I'm on my second 0.5L of Diet Dew of the day after two cups of coffee this morning. 

    Instead, there's a factual information void.
    Those are always filled by hearsay and speculation and innuendo. 
    Yet they're letting that go on to the negative.

     It just seems very peculiar to the neutral observer that no one has officially uttered  the word caffeine  to prevent all the speculation;  every article about it it was referred to as an illegal substance. 

    FYP. 


  5. I won't make a claim; I'll just say prove (via link) it was caffeine. 

    Until there's a legitimate source that goes on the record, it's all just speculation, innuendo, and hearsay.  

    That said, if it really was as culturally benign as caffeine, why hasn't someone gone on the record?

    Do it KEM.  Just for spite, donate 100M to UND and make sure you make a point you are doing it because Kennedy is gone.  UND will gladly take your spite donations!! :D

    Be really, really spiteful: $200 million. ;)

    To be fair, most people on this forum didn't think women's hockey would even be considered for the chopping block.

    Think it could be considered? Yes. 

    Believe it was untouchable? Yes. 

    Surprised UND came to a hard yet correct decision the right way? Yes and no.

    You have to include catching the ball, especially when a short pass is 'equivalent' to a run play.  

    Undeniably; however, if you can't get the ball off,... well, there never was a drop because there was no pass. 

    How many 1-step or 3-step throws was Kett unable to make last season.

    IMO 2019 hinges on 3 things:

    1.) Freund being far superior @ OC

    2.) JJ and Cam et al at RB 

    3.) Can defense be dominant and create TO's.

    IMO 2019 hinges on these 3 things:
    1. The offensive line
    2. Play in the trenches.
    3. Controlling the line of scrimmage. 

    Bet none of you guessed my #1. ;)

    The last two go for both sides of the ball. 


  11. Hoff left so the early departure rule invoked meaning no more entries

    Now we just need the answer key to complete final grading.
    It's not official yet but we got a strong hint today:

    PInto, Blaisdell, Caulfield and Frisch will be rookies in the fall. Rowe, Moore, Bast, Rizzo and Budy are expected to come in the fall of 2020.

    And he allowed his OC to absolutely squander the careers of two all time great backs in school history.

    ... and a home playoff game.

    Who has said 7-5 is a sign of success?  Making the playoffs is a sign of success.

    My point is now that they are playing an extremely tough schedule it's not the time to demand 8 wins.  Believe it or not, in football who is on your schedule matters.

    Some kids have their heart set on one particular school and aren't really worth recruiting. Better to direct resources to kids that haven't made up their minds.

    Correct. 

    Think of it this way: Would it have been wise to give anything more than a cursory "hello" to any of Don Lucia's kids. They were Domers or Goophers from birth.
