    How come Kelton Copeland never takes any heat? Have we had a great WR corp since he arrived?

    You never really know until they kick in front of 70000 screaming fans. But, so far so good!

    Hawkeyes in NFL camps

    Ben Nieman and Josh Jackson both showed well in the Cardinal's first pre season game last night. Nieman had 6 tackles, second most on the team. Jackson had 4 tackles I think and the announcers were positive on him making the roster. He was playing CB and had a good pass deflection that I saw...

    Luka Garza update

    I didn't realize Danny Ainge had gone back to Utah and his Mormon roots. When Quinn Snyder quit as coach after what, 8 years?, he said the team needed a new direction and they are for sure blowing up the roster, hence the Gobert trade to Minnesota. Might be a good spot for Luka but right now it...

    Luka Garza update

    I suppose I agree with Fryowa on this. Luka just doesn't have the athleticism to be a rotation guy in the NBA. Someone posted once that Jarrod Uthoff is the same way. If Luka has a chance it would be as an end of the bench role player, somewhere where he can fit a need due to injury, etc. Luka...

    Luka Garza update

    Listened to Pat Harty's KCJJ interview of Luka this morning. Luka says that he is contractually a free agent at this point. He's hoping to have a contract going into fall camp and says he's talking to several teams including Portland, who he played for in the summer league. He didn't name any...

    Wiesy summer league

    There aren't many nba coaches better than pops at identifying a player as someone that can help his team and bring them along at a slow pace, teach them what they need to know and let the peacock fly. It seems Wiesy fits into that category but you never know for sure.

    Wiesy summer league

    Came across the below, too bad, he could've used a good summer leauge. Wieskamp will sit out all of Summer League due to a sprained ankle suffered in Tuesday's practice, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports. The experience would have been nice for Wieskamp, who was drafted 41st...

    Fighting for scraps off of the table

    My experience growing up in small town Iowa (pop 300) was much like Fryowa describes, idyllic in a sense but I'm not sure what is has to do with B1G expansion. LA has lots of TV sets and like SoCal or not that matters. I would guess many on this board have heard of Frank the Tank, an Illinois...

    Fighting for scraps off of the table

    I've wondered about this, too. The last two times there was major expansion, TX and OU to SEC and MD and Rutgers to B1G, the Pac 12 just sat there and said they wouldn't be expanding at this time. Well they waited too long. For one thing, why didn't the Pac 12 ever get on DirecTV? When they...

    Fighting for scraps off of the table

    In my younger days I used to go to a sports bar in Glandale, AZ called Max's. Max himself was from Omaha. He loved to have game watches for the B1G schools and Nebby, loved them as the fams would come in, drinkup, eat up, and spend lots of money. The one school he didn't like having game...

    Pistons Cut Garza

    I see Luka signed with Portland which might be a good fit for him. Blazers didn't make the playoffs last year for first time in about a decade. The fans and team are worried that Damian Lillard will request a trade. new coach Chauncey Billups has a serious sexual allegation in his past and that...

    Pistons Cut Garza

    In my mind it will be Luka's shooting that keeps him in the league. I'm a Phx Suns fan and I've been trying to make a case for Luka, probably won't happen but here are mu thoughts. Luka can make it as a backup 4 and/or 5. T he Suns starting 4 last year was Jae Crowder, good D, hustle, OK...

    Pistons Cut Garza

    I expect we'll see him on a summer league roster in the next few days. Then, hopefully, an invite to a camp. Then we'll see if he is headed overseas somewhere.

    Will Fran be in the Green Room?

    I didn't see Fran, in fact, I haven't seen any coaches. Maybe they've been banned.

    Will Fran be in the Green Room?

    I would think so. What a great recruiting tool! Go Hawks

    OT: RIP Caleb Swanigan

    I was surprised he didn't make it in the NBA. He seemed like a sure bet at power forward. He was so tough that last year at Purdue.
