Prime example of this...Booker Stanley
Exactly. Perfect example.
The only thing I can think of is... Maybe there are slightly different rules for D1 and D3? Perhaps D3 only counts semesters you've been enrolled but D1 goes from time of first enrollment?
Is Packer Rookie RB Eddie Lacy Damaged Goods?

I'm really hoping that Alex Green is fully recovered, and he comes to camp showing off those flashes of quickness that he did in college and before he injured his knee. I still think he could be pretty good. It just all depends on how that knee goes. He says he's fully recovered now, so we'll see. No matter what happens with Green, the weakest spot on Green Bay's roster last year has probably become a strength this season.

I think an undefeated WI would have a hard to making the playoff over a 1 loss team with that schedule.
I think they'll still tend to give teams with undefeated records the benefit of the doubt. I mean, ever since the BCS came out, teams have, for the most part, been grouped in the standings by record first, and I don't think that's going to change any time soon. I wouldn't mind if 1-loss teams got in ahead of undefeateds, but even if that happens, I doubt that Wisconsin would miss the playoffs. In order for that to happen, I think you would need to have at least 1 other undefeated team, and multiple 1-loss teams with very strong resumes. And I just don't see an undefeated team from the B1G being ranked #5 or lower by the selection committee, no matter how weak that schedule is.

I am convinced that Lebron is 2-3 years older than he admits. That doesn't sound like a big deal now, but it was when he was allegedly a high school senior. I don't believe he was 18 when he graduated high school.
He made millions of dollars under fraudulant conditions.
I don't think he could stand up to the real players of the 70s and 80s who would have eaten his lunch.
Could you sound like anymore of a curmudgeony old hater? I'm sorry that the world continued on after 1980.
Even if true...you're insinuating that he made millions for not being a good basketball player?
I don't get it. I mean, I guess if it turns out Albert Pujols is a few years older than represented and his career goes on the downswing because of age, you could argue he made money from the Angels under fraudulent conditions...it's just a weird thing to say.
As far as the players from the 70's and 80's eating his lunch...I don't know...not a lot of 6'8", 250 lb. guys with his game existed back then...of course, the game was entirely different back then too...Way too hard to compare across eras.
Where in my post did you get the idea that I thought he made millions for not being good? He is extremely talented, but if my suspicions are correct and he was really 21 and competing against high school seniors, his advantage was huge. Just look at the physical changes that the male body goes through as someone approaches their 20s, getting more broad and muscular. That is a huge advantage in a game that is continually being played in a more physical manner. It's similar to the issue that the LLWS has had to deal with. As for the game being different, the game started to change when Bird and Magic came into the league. That is when I noticed the beginning of the shift in officiating to benefit the high-profile players. Sadly, that has only gotten worse over time as the league has intentionally taken a team-oriented game and made it more of a series of individual contests. I understand why they did it, but I still don't like it.
I don't like or dislike LeBron James. He is talented player without a doubt. I just never believed he was 18 as a high school senior. His physical development just did not agree with the statistics. I thought the same thing about Greg Oden when he came out of high school.
I honestly don't understand your logic one bit. First of all, I know a guy who had a full beard in 5th grade. And no, he didn't fail any classes. He was a fully grown man at 14 years of age; he didn't mature physically at all after that age. Secondly, look at pictures of Lebron in high school. Yes, he was a fairly big dude then, but he's definitely filled out more since then. Lastly, Lebron grew up in a city of 200,000; everyone there knew who he was. You don't think anyone in that city would realize that he played 2 years of 7th grade ball or 2 years of 5th grade ball or however you think it happened? Your theory is insane, at best, in my opinion. This type of thing is way more believable when you have guys coming from other countries and they don't have birth certificates or the birth certificates are easily faked.

From the "New Divisions" thread:
I'm dreaming of a season in which we play Indiana, Rutgers, and Maryland in the 3 cross over games. Holy cupcake of a schedule that would be.
We miss Indiana, but wow, that schedule is a cakewalk.

Basement Brewers @ Ceiling Cardinals
Saturday, May 18, 2013 9:55:25 AM(UTC)
I see the Brewers taking 2 of 3 from the Birds.
St. Louis has been playing so well for so long and Milwaukee so bad for so long that I can see this being an "odd" series.
But I can also see the Cardinals sweeping the Crew.
Gast pitched well against the Mets throwing for 6 innings, I believe.
On paper 2 of the 3 should go to America's team (Cardinals), but the games are not played on paper.
An odd thing to call the Cardinals...if anything, the Yankees are. Because they're talked about so much you wouldn't even know that there are 29 other teams in the league.
- The Mid-west is Real America. MO, IA, IL, WI, MN, KS, NE, etc...... You don't get much more American than that. Hard working, blue-collar working states.
No, all of the US is the REAL America. This holier than thou crap that has been spouted in the past decade or so is obnoxious. Someone from Wisconsin is not more of an American that someone from New York, California, or Florida. It is asinine that someone considers themselves more of an American than someone else and needs to stop
Except Texas. They've always wanted to be their own country, anyway.

Wait, wait, wait... You can't have it both ways, MBC... Did LeBron join up with 2 of the best players in the league to make himself look good? Or did 3 players who couldn't even capably lead their own teams join up to make themselves look talented? You seem to be flip-flopping on this.
The Boston guys all WILLINGLY went to Boston. The Kobe/Shaq Lakers were all made up of guys that either A) WILLINGLY chose to go there or B) WILLINGLY decided to stay in LA. Same thing with the current Spurs team.
This is the Free Agency era. Everyone WILLINGLY decides who they play for and with. If they don't like where they are, they demand a trade to somewhere they do want to be or they wait out a year or maybe two and then go somewhere they want to.

I've never really watched Colbert, does he just hate on all sides of the government? I thought he was primarily left leaning and that clip made it seem otherwise. Regardless, he was hilarious. I may have to watch more often.
I have to give her credit, she's never been my favorite person...ok, I can't stand Gwen Moore, but she did pretty well with all that. You could see hints of her playing into it pretty well and didn't get all uncomfortable and weird like many of those stuffies I think would.
Colbert does lean left in my opinion, but he rips on anything that is particularly stupid. Needless to say, he doesn't run out of things to make fun of. I really like the Colbert Report. You just have to keep in mind that it's on Comedy Central, and it doesn't qualify as real news.

The Bulls had a darn good team, even without Jordan. And they had capable management. Lebron had a team that was a bunch of scrubs and washed up players, and he had management that were completely incapable of doing anything productive for that team. Knock Lebron all you want for taking the easy way out, but Lebron and Jordan were in completely different circumstances. Lebron's current situation is much closer to Jordan's than Lebron's situation in Cleveland was.
