i'm glad he left, because if we had given him a big contract we may have never brought manu over. all's well that ends well. his loss, not our's.

here's a stat mentioned by saban that makes the rule basically irrelevant whether it's passed or not: the 4 fastest teams (oregon, A&M, auburn and baylor) only snapped the ball within 10 sec an average of 4 times per game. adding the 10 sec rule seems like it might take away one snap per game at the most, but that's it. will one less snap really make that big of a difference in "player safety"?
needless to say, it doesn't sound like the rule would help slow down those offenses regardless, making the proposal appear as more of a "gimmick" (you know the definition of that term, right?) than anything else.

i think the spurs are good to go as is. they're probably even better than last year. basically replace gary neal’s production with patty and marco, add a healthier manu and you have a huge upgrade and more depth on the bench than last year.

@John at MrSEC so basically everyone who has an opposite opinion of you is pathetic? how predictable.

what's the bigger threat to safety? uptempo offense or 250-300 lbs linebackers blitzing and blindsiding into a QB or RB who is standing straight up? uptempo offense or kick returns that involves two players at high speeds ramming into each other from an opposite directions?
what hurts the integrity of the game more? uptempo offense or defenders faking cramps to stop the game and sub without using a timeout?
"What's incredibly predictable and pathetic is the fact that the folks who are saying no huddle offenses" are bad and dangerous all seem to be fans of teams who DON'T run that offense and are getting beat by it. Just like you claim to have a counter to every pro-uptempo point, there's a counter to all the cons.
i've never heard of anyone that doesn't like musburger (of course, i also don't follow twitter so what do i know?), but i'm pretty sure there are plenty more people who like him than gary danielson.

if kobe, paul and westbrook are still out tony might slide in as a sub or wildcard (although he could use the rest), and i can see tim being selected by the coaches.

@nicky2gs you are over-complicating what I am trying to say way too much. i agree with you that different situations call for different players (which is entirely the point i'm trying to make) and more often than not diaw will be better, but...and that's a big BUT...if it's a situation where height and a defensive presence arounf the rim is needed, he should go with baynes (again, assuming tiago or tim isn't available). the few times we've seen baynes with the first or second unit he has held is own very well. i know pop will go with diaw and bonner more often than not, and in most cases that's the right way to go, but there are those few matchups (indiana, memphis, houston, missesota, etc) where if tim or tiago are missing baynes might be the better way to go. that's all i'm saying and it's not that complicated.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Popovich: Aron Baynes just needs an opportunity
@nicky2gs you are misinformed: i did not say that pop should play baynes over splitter, he should play baynes when splitter or tim isn't available and he needs a tall presence. tiago's height is what was affecting david west, and once pop went small west went to work on them. baynes is a much better interior defender than diaw, bonner or ayers and if anything would have provided a stronger presence in the paint and around the rim. if pop has one weakness it's being too dedicated to certain rotations and players even if the situation is wrong for them or if that player isn't performing. all i'm asking is in the future when pop needs to stay big and is mssing tiago or tim, he'll go with baynes instead of settling for small ball even if it hurts the team.
question: why didn't pop play him against the pacers?! the one qtr where the spurs were beating them was when splitter was in there, but once he went down and pop went small it all unraveled because we needed a bigger defensive presnce around rim. hopefully pop will learn from this and not hesitate to go big with baynes when he's missing tim or tiago.
is it just me or does danny appear to live in a very modest neighborhood for someone that makes $3 mil a year? (don't get me wrong: there's nothing wrong with him saving money, it's just something i noticed)

man you guys are negative for so early in the season. all this "losing hope" stuff is way too premature especially while the team is really starting to mesh.

all i can say about the spurs' christmas uniforms is thank god they don't have a guady logo or colors. that's what makes the bulls' and knicks' uniforms that much worse.
it's a good thing the spurs don't have a logo that looks guady or cartoonish once you blow it up (like the bulls, for example). i can't say i like these that much, but if you look at some of the other teams' christmas versions the spurs' aren't that bad thanks to the subtle color and logo.
that being said, it seems like the league is taking everything everyone hated about last year's "creative" alternates (sleeves, only the logo and no team name, etc) and making it worse.

it's not something anyone seemed to noticed during the game, including the lakers crown. there were far more noticeable flops last year that went unpunished, so if the league is going to call this one hopefully that means they'll crack down on the extremely obvious ones, too.
