Btw, if you add up the numbers, that state comparison is not even close by a magin of two to one (4,407,704 vs. 8,748,673).

Baby Boomers, Big Baby. Woodcock should be Major of Gezzerville.

Why do I get the notion that Patrick Daugherty is related to our own FZB in some way¿?!

FZ, unfortunately, Belichick's band of merry cheaters will uncover an even more obscure passage within the rule book. Say, like Brady will be allowed to throw using a jai-alai cesta if he enters the play wearing white-colored pants and a handkerchief for a belt.

Having been born in Ca., and growing up there, naturally, he has a spot for the place. Having said that, we taught him well (read conservative) and as such recognizes (I'll put it diplomatically) the many "challenges" Ca is facing now and in its future. He loved Baylor and likes Texas to boot (damn the puns, full speed ahead).

Thx, Tom. OC Jr. will be applying to the Ca. schools as out-of-state, and in-state for five Texas schools. We prefer an acceptance to UT @Austin, but it would be a first-year class and realistically the numbers don't work in his favor (first year class size of 50-60).

FZ, I know you had to go through this road with your own son, too. Anyway, one interesting tidbit. While going through some of the facilities over at UT@Hou., we happen to come across an exhibit. Took only a second to realize that the various "exhibits" were all kinds of humans sliced and diced to expose everything from a full nervous system to cut-sections of every imaginable body part. One whole wall had cylindrical (formaldehyde filled, I would imagine) glass containers showing stuff like a small child cut precisely down the middle to show the spinal chord, etc. None of it really grossed me out. Looked at it as abstract until some 5 minutes later walking back and thinking...those used to be living beings!

Just back from a road-trip visiting various medical schools here in Texas. The Houston area is awash with facilities, Baylor receiving top marks from this reviewer. I believe the various rating sources rate Baylor #18 - #20 nationally. However, at $18k per year, only U NoCarolina rates comparable in quality and cost. Most, if not all schools in the top50 run north of $30k/yr. Keep your fingers crossed for me, boys, at $100 per application cost (ouch!), he will be applying to no less than 15 schools come June.

A Heat loss and there's like five teams all vying for one of two spots into the playoffs.

That game is at Boston, and Isaiah Thomas is scheduled to be back and he torched them last go around. Whiteside can't be 100% either sporting 10 stitches on his hand. Should be a good one.

Perhaps Dion Jordan's stilted growth at ANY defensive position has less to do with coaching or talent and more to do with his penchant for exchanging cookie recipes with Jonathan Martin.

OC jr. In for spring break. We're driving to Houston to check out med schools.

I'm with you on that, Tom. I too can't get excited with the NCAA Tournament.

Woodcock, those weren't acupuncture needles she was sticking you with, it was heroin.

You two guys know that Scherff is going 5th overall to the Redskins, right!?

Tom, If in fact Crabtree has cymbals for hands maybe the Dolphins can pipe in Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture when he runs routes.

Just ahead of Miami...
1 reply
The only guy I see fitting that pick is the CB, Trae Wayne's. The Saints, just of Miami may pick Wayne. If that happens Miami should trade down.

Jimbo, But what if the best available player/s are folks you're loaded with? The Dolphins have pretty much addressed many of their weaknesses, but for the LBs. Particularly, the ILBs. The top ILB -- Kendricks, out of UCLA figures to still be on the board until late in the 1st round, or early 2nd. If they can trade back to improve the rest of their draft, AND still get the top prospect you seek, why not pull the trigger?

El pobre. Sounds like Pablo routinely goes in to his pediatrician when his toe acts up.

Look, FZ, I'm not proposing that they forego landing more line help. Alls I'm saying is that a team needs to equip themselves with players "wisely."

I like this prospect for the second pick. Another dude with a tude! Place him along with Suh and they'll have a "take no prisoners" type mentality. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1850724/stephone-anthony
1 reply
BB, you're right. They'll go after the CB with their #14. Then the best ILB in the second round, followed by FZ's G in the 4th.

FZ, You keep saying to take the lineman. Have you checked out the top two Guards? The top one, A. j. Cann, is considered the 43rd overall best prospect. The scouting info on him describes him as having no line versatility, best suited for power schemes (something the team dumped back in the Incognito days, opting for more zone blocking), bad for zone blocking teams. The second best big-ugly, Laken Tomlinson, is rated #52, again, not versatile (RGB only). Why would you spend your #14 on folks who are still going to be available much later in the draft? No entiendo, bro.
