  1. Awesome recap! Team Sweet Love need to grind through the next three weeks.
  2. Dead count for me - Just two: Gore and Fitzgerald...I would have powned you all in 2012...
  3. So odd - my LV and KC players scores are updated, but nothing else. i guess it shows progress, but why would I add new lineups for tonight, when I don't even know how I did this weekend??
  4. In all it's glory... QB - Cam Newton - NE/6 - $11 QB - Ben Roethlisberger - PIT/8 - $11 QB - Philip Rivers - IND/7 - $8 RB - Nick Chubb - CLE/9 - $26 RB - Austin Ekeler - LAC/10 - $26 RB - Chris Carson - SEA/6 - $21 RB - Antonio Gibson - WAS/8 - $9 RB - Chase Edmonds - ARI/8 - $8 RB - Frank Gore - NYJ/11 - $3 WR - D.J. Moore - CAR/13 - $23 WR - Adam Thielen - MIN/7 - $21 WR - Calvin Ridley - ATL/10 - $21 WR - Julian Edelman - NE/6 - $15 WR - Larry Fitzgerald - ARI/8 - $7 WR - Hunter Renfrow - LV/6 - $6 WR - Chase Claypool - PIT/8 - $4 TE - Austin Hoo
  5. To me, that is even worse - I guess in some cases they would get a loan off of a non-guaranteed contract, but if you are only in the league a few years, no one would stop me (unless I was concerned myself) from earning a paycheck. It just doesn't make sense, unless they willingly opt out. But to trust a GM that I am guaranteed to get that year in earnings back, no way.
  6. I guess the hard part I have wrapping around my mind, is that if this were the case (being orchestrated), you are still convincing guys who make millions to take 150k for the season. I have to be missing something, because I can't see a bunch of players agreeing to something like that.
  7. I am in the Ogie Orglethorpe phase, and love every minute of it!
  8. Gallup and a first? Done. Even Gallup and a 2nd should be strongly considered.
  9. February...letting the locks grow. In fact, I manage my company's charitable initiatives, and am going to shave the top of my head (but let locks and sides flow) for our Make-A-Wish initiative. Basically, i will look like a balding dude with the other stuff flowing.
  10. That is great - you will love the Duke campus! It has a very northern college look, situated in the south, so best of both worlds! In regards to Raleigh, we are still on curfew (8:00pm), and not sure if that will trickle down to the weekend. For some reason we were hit hard when the protests turned to riots. As a community, we tend to have a pretty good relationship with the police department, so it was a little surprising. However, I am not sure whether you are staying in Durham or Raleigh, but if you are in Durham, there are a lot of good, newer restaurants, I am just not sure who is op
  11. Daughter applied for gap year on Thursday last week and found out she was granted the gap year yesterday. I was absolutely shocked they made that decision so quickly. To me, it would be quick in the best of times, and we are certainly not there today. The most surprising part is that the university has yet to announce it's plan for the fall, outside of saying they will be open. but what does that mean. I for sure thought they would wait to make that announcement, see what the feedback was like, and then begin making gap year decisions. Maybe they know something we don't, but i would have
  12. I am not a particularly good test taker, but unless a few those 12 metrics they spoke about are objective, I am not sure how you get a hard number. GPA, to me, is too wonky based on school, classes, teachers, etc. I am not even sure how the test optional places do it. If you have two identical kids, and one sends in test scores, the other doesn't, but the one who did is 50 points off your SAT average (for example) how do you measure against one another. Maybe I am looking at it the wrong way, but while applaud the effort to be more inclusive, it seems more like a crapshoot to me.
  13. "highly encouraged" was the wording used. It is too bad, because we did a good job keeping it under control here.
  14. We are opening in Phase 2 here in NC. So that means limited capacities for Dine-in eating, hair and nail salons, churches, pools. No mandatory face coverings for employees.
  15. Hi all, apologies for holding everything up. I'm predrafted for the remaining rounds and will keep an eye on it. For the pick that was skipped, do I lose the position or can I IM or pick a player. Sorry again guys
  16. I think Bass is calling you out - like, "You couldn't in no way purposely drafted player X. He must have selected him as a placeholder for someone else". 🤣
  17. Sorry for the delay guys - somehow I pre-drafted a pick after my next pick.
  18. I like the Guice pick - i was going to take him two picks later - so thanks for that...lol.
  19. Agreed. Picking #1 in a 16 teamer will always give you a "visual bump", but coming away with Wilson, Ertz and cooper (top 10 in their respective positions), plus very startable pieces to round out the rest of the positions, it looks like he was drafting in a 12 teamer. Nice work...
  20. Hey guys - sorry about the autopick - forgt it started this week. @BassNBrew Sending you a PM, because I can't seem to link and maybe it is because you do not have my email?
  21. We seem to do a lot of that - drafting very specific players for a system, tossing the coach, then getting rid of the players who do not fit the next guy. I know it happens across the league, but when you change coaches as frequently as the Jets, it just gets magnified.
  22. We are in the same boat - in fact, my wife works in government affairs in the healthcare industry and based on calls she has been on, she is actually suggesting, we send her the first semester, then have her take the second semester off as a gap semester, then go back in the fall again (of 2021). Obviously, we need to consider her well being (how much fun is it to make friends for three months, then be yanked out for 9 months), but if you are trying to track (at this point) when schools may reopen and possibly close again, she is thinking they may make it through the Fall semester, but then p
  23. Could he elaborate on why he did not want SC? It's a big school, warmer weather...A lot of NC kids who do not get into Chapel Hill choose to go there since they offer instate tuition. I am not sure why they have so many of those slots to give away (maybe the infrastructure is bigger than the instate pool), but the ones that I know that have gone there, enjoy it very much. Sorry you all are going through this - I had a somewhat similar situation with my parents (I got into a school they really wanted me to go to and I said "well, if you make me, you make me), and they relented, and I panicke
  24. I can't overstate the difference this made for my daughter getting into school - American is overly aggressive on ED (I think 82% were accepted for 2019), but the president of her senior class who had a better GPA than she (but lower ACTs), got waitlisted - we were stunned. My daughter got money to boot. It is a little sad though - there was something fun (and stressful) about getting your acceptances and determining which was the best fit.
