Re: I am a little worried

Stew had great success with recruits most fans wouldn't be very excited about. Year after year the NewMags and other conference rivals would come pounding their chest about their great recruits, how our recruits sucked, how they were going to dominate us the next season.

Re: I am a little worried

“Winning in recruiting isn't as important as winning on the court.” That's a true statement. Winning on the court is MORE important. That doesn't mean recruiting doesn't matter - it means winning games matters MORE. You don't believe that? Show me the trophies and banners schools display for recrui...

Re: Dwade is now an owner of the Jazz

Regardless of their specific cause and whether I agree or disagree, sports has been a refuge from those things for me. The insertion of social cause...

Re: Things are about to change

Honestly, separating sports from colleges and high schools might not be a bad thing.
Sports has become so valuable ($) that people aren't making decisions that prioritize education and the best interests of the students.
