posted in the thread Article about Germane Crowell Jr. by HoozOnTop on the Virginia Football Board 3 minutes ago
I was fortunate enough to have watched
get better over the years. I remember being surprised to hear that UVA offered him when they did. I didnt think he had the skills to play in college. But by his senior year he was really starting to affect most plays on offense and defense. During one game I watched, he was the punter, FG kicker, QB and Safety. I realized during that game, that I dont know very much about football, and its a good thing Im not a recruiter for UVA, haha.

More than his potential to be a great player at UVA though, Ill be pulling for him because he is just a really nice kid.

According to SBNATION a fight between players broke out
A Rider guy punched a Siena guy and then Rider's coach tried to get into Siena's huddle to confront the Siena coach.

posted in the thread Why don't we shoot more threes? by MailguyJeff on the Womens Basketball 30 minutes ago
Have to have balanced attack
It's necessary to make the other team work on defense, get them in foul trouble, etc. If you shoot only 3s, the other team will just move out to defend the 3 better,

Was confirmed a bad loss when they got blown out by Syracuse the next game
Except for our game, Pitt has shot between 34% to 46% and 29% to 43% for 3 point shots in ACC games. We gave up 54% shooting and 62% for 3s. Our D sucked and they were hot. Their only player who did not shoot at least 50% for 3's was Young who was a measly 3 for 7.

Rider vs Sienna got chippy huh? One of the stranger things I've seen is the
Sienna coach walking down the sidelines pretending to shake hands with phantom players because the coach of Rider took his players off the floor and refused to shake hands at end of regulation. I didn't see what caused the coaches to get into it with each other, so hard to say if the reaction was warranted or not. Anyone watch it live?

Edit: Does anyone recall the beef we had with Ole Jimmy Patsos when he was at Maryland? I recall him being a hothead. Was he at the center of the Travis Watson / Keith Enifer beef that was the catalyst to that Maryland 10 point comeback with under a minute?

Prices not good outside JPJ. Plus you run the risk of fake tickets--those
already scanned & then passed back outside for hustlers to pick up some easy money from suckers. I'd never trust a ticket sold outside JPJ. It might be good but it might be worthless too. These days it's only safe to buy online from a site that's legit & offers a guarantee.

Re: Why don't we shoot more threes?
I am guessing the reason we shoot a good percentage on threes is because the team has been actually coached to know what is a good shot, and what is a shot you can get anytime in the shot clock. Your premise seems to be that no matter how many threes we shoot our percentage would remain the same. Ask Tony. He seems to know what is a good shot from three and what is just forcing it. I seem to remember him saying we have to touch the paint, have to look inside first unless it is an open rhythm three.

Love, love, love the thought of working the ball to the crease. I've missed
that since Steele graduated. Working inside will reap benefits from drawing more EMO situations to increasing our shooting percentage.

Thanks! A few questions..
Based on what you saw, who seems likely to start at attack?

Any sign of Lamb and Poquie? If so, how'd they look?

Did Falk and McNamara take runs on O or were they still mostly at SSDM?

Finally - I was able to go to a practice. Moving quickly --
Style –
As you would expect - just like the fall; fast paced, jam packed with a variety of drills, aggressive, often at game speed. Sometimes will do the same drill in the opposite direction – depending on the drill, they will break and start at the opposite end of the field or go counter clockwise instead of clockwise.

Coaches much more vocal than in the fall; only 95% positive comments, vs. 99% in the fall. (still a very positive environment but sprinkled with a bit of criticism)

Offense prefers to a great extent to try to get the ball inside, close to the crease instead of taking a mid-range or longer shot. Frequently don’t connect but presumably will hit a higher percentage of passes with more practice. Frequently take a shot within just several seconds after gaining possession.

On face-off wing/gb drill with three guys pitted against each other, Kip has fun releasing the ball quickly from different angles, in different directions, and a differing speeds; very realistic; guys have to be alert.

Selected individuals –
Could be my imagination but
-- goalies look a bit better. Thompson as a ball stopper and Railey as a passer; his intermediate passes have greater zip on them. I saw no improvement for either of them at the long ball.
-- Conrad and Dox look trimmer; perhaps so they can use their speed more than their strength, which would seem to fit this offense.

Easy to see why Lars singled our Milan Murray; hard shot, can dodge. Don’t remember seeing that in the fall. Saw him play at Under Armour underclassmen games two years ago. Back then looked like a perfect ssdm, fast in transition and a long reach. Now he has even more to contribute.

Kraus and D’Amario were the two best offensive guys on the field. Dox did not touch the ball that often but showed his athleticism,
if not a great shot. I will speculated that his development as a middie was slowed a bit due to the experiment at attack.

Wade Maloney, didn’t see play in the fall, is physical and can move around a defender with some speed.

We might have have 7-8 very good middies, none outstanding – yet. We need at least 6 for this offense.

On d –
Fersen - a favorite of mine but in the dog house all last year, knocked down two passes one right after the other and caused a turnover.
McNamara – looked good at everything, even when trying to use strength
Jared Connors – excellent gb guy, strong
Ambrosino – smooth, pretty fast, very good passer, excellent gb guy

Questions?

That being said, I don't think Romo's cap count ...
will be $19mn+ for the team that trades for him. It might be far less. Perhaps $15mn? But some of it also might be guaranteed for 2018 and 2019. In any sense, that might make it easier to trade for Romo.

However, one thing is for certain ... the Cowboys are in salary cap hell. They almost need to trade or waive Romo for the sake of 2018. They need to clear him from the books for the 2018 season by getting rid of him in 2017. If they don't, they won't be able to keep their core players.

I think he will be traded - I don't think Dallas will get a ton for him...
but I'll bet Jerry wants to keep him in the AFC and he has to trade him to do it. Plus I think he is so much better than what most teams have that someone will cut the deal, it only takes one guy... Dallas might be smart to wait until August to do it if they are looking to max out on return, look at what MN paid for Bradford and he sucks.
