  1. Forgive my exuberance, but I went to Clemson for both undergraduate and graduate school, and after being there during the glorious 1981-1982 National Championship season, it has been 34 years of non-stop heartache. They've been good, and at times excellent, but they've never come close to repeating that one, unforgettable accomplishment. --- "Clemson Tigers Banned from Social Media during Season" on si.com Supposedly, "to keep players' focus on football as opposed to the outside world." I read it more as, "to keep any stars from getting trashed at 2 AM and tweeting somethin
  2. Among the great athletes of the 20th century Julius Erving, Dr. J, deserves mention among the most famous, most relevant, best and most impactful. He played professional basketball from 1971 to 1987, 11 years in the NBA for Philadelphia, five years in the ABA for two different teams. Dr J, who has been referenced here quite a bit, albeit without a thread, introduced artistic soaring, starting from the outer edge of the court slam dunking to the NBA. He was certainly not the first, but he elevated it and turned it into a "thing", now, and for 3 decades one of the most commented and rev
  3. I'd always planned on giving Marrisa Mowry her privacy, but she's now mentioned on several websites on the internet. As the next-best thing, I'm instead going to focus on her athletic career at Anderson University in Anderson, SC. I first saw Marissa on Instagram two years ago as a junior at Cartersville HS - she and Trevor Lawrence were about the cutest couple I'd ever seen, and I figured it was only a matter of time until the internet found them, and their all-American, high-school sweetheart relationship. But this is about Marissa, not Trevor, and she's a fine athlete - she didn't
  4. *Nobody* beats Clemson 60 times in a row! "Clemson Stuns Host UNC after Going 0-for-59 in Chapel Hill" on espn.com
  5. In this post, I justifiably poked fun at the sports media for proclaiming every "next great thing" as "The [X] Jordan" - Harold Miner was "Baby Jordan," Tamir Goodman was "Jewish Jordan," etc. Len Bias could have been the next Michael Jordan, and was quite possibly the only player I've ever seen in my life who was *that good*. Like when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded, I remember exactly where I was, and exactly what I was doing, when I heard the news of Len Bias's tragic death - the two events happened only six-months apart. To young people today: I realize it's prematur
  6. Clemson University Bio for Deshaun Watson Aug 30, 2016 - "Deshaun Watson Opens Up on Mom's Cancer Battle: 'She's Living Life to the Fullest" by Campus Insiders on watchstadium.com Deann Watson had tongue cancer, similar to what Grant Achatz had - they are two of the fortunate ones who (this seems fitting) licked it after brutal treatments of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.

  7. Uh.... yeah😀 But seriously that was an excellent game last evening. Two teams with many pro caliber big strong violent super fast skilled players. Their practices could be more competitive than many games. Seriously. Plays were decided by inches. Really great competition. To the victors go the spoils. Congrats Clemson.
  8. In the midst of the NBA playoffs, the Warriors have beaten the Houston Rockets twice; once in which Stephen Curry played only 20 minutes, lit up the scoring, then got hurt and sat for the rest of the rout(game). In the 2nd match up, Curry didn't play due to injury...opening up tremendous opportunities for Houston. Didn't pan out though as the Golden State Warriors won again, even without Curry. Of course there could be a variety of reasons for the results...but one suggestion is that James Harden's defense is simply not that stellar. Below a video of some of his shining moments on defe
  9. Do you watch college football? I do. Not voraciously but sporadically. Its somewhat like watching college basketball vs the pros. One phenomena is that when a player sticks out and is so remarkably more talented than everyone else he creates memorable unmatched plays and generates astonishing displays of athleticism. Over the past quarter century or so probably the single most exciting player in college football was Michael Vick. Vick; pretty interesting career and life. He was a combination running/throwing quarterback at Virginia Tech, probably led them to their best records, and

"Cartersville QB, Clemson Commit Trevor Lawrence Once Again the No. 1 Recruit in the Nation" by Marcel Louis-Jacques on independentmail.com "Clemson Football: Trevor Lawrence's Name Mentioned with All-Time Greats" by Andrew Boardwine on rubbingtherock.com In addition to Hunter Johnson (who will be a sophomore next year) and Zerrick Cooper (also a (redshirt) sophomore), Trevor Lawrence (a true freshman) addles this situation enormously next year: "Clemson Football: Kelly Bryant Ranked No. 1 Heisman Candidate for 2018" by Andrew Boardwine on rubbingtherock.com I'm not sure I
  11. Lonzo Ball, I fear, is somewhat overrated, has too much baggage, and might be a disappointment in the NBA. Look at his stat line this year: 14.6 points, 6 rebounds, 7.6 assists. That's very impressive, especially for a freshman, and especially in the assists category. However, his shooting technique is extremely flawed, and he's not mature enough to tell his father to back off. Yes, he can shoot an open 3, but his free-throw percentage this year is 67.3% - think about that for a moment. He's big and quick, he can jump, and he can pass very well, but he is a big risk - my d
  12. Sometimes, when I'm watching a basketball game, I get bored, and decide to focus on a single player - not looking at the ball; just that one, single player ... it sounds wacky, but I get quite a bit out of it, and learn a whole lot about how that player operates. In the past few minutes, it has been #5 for the Portland Trail Blazers, Rodney Hood, who has also played for the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Utah Jazz - in college, he played for Duke after transferring from Mississippi State. My initial impression of Hood is that he's very big (he's 6'8"), and also a step too slow for playi

  14. It's been a fantastic first day. Two major upsets. Plus the vast majority have been close games, including multiple 1-point games.
  15. With the internet and social media in full-force, it's a very possible scenario that outstanding high school talent will befriend one another, and want to go to the same school.

  17. Jeff Allen is an Offensive Lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs, and played college football at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
  18. The Wisconsin Badgers have a very real chance of finishing this season undefeated, and still not making the College Football Playoffs (CFP). "What Will the CFP Committee Do with an Unbeaten Wisconsin?" by Heather Dinich on espn.com I think the answer to this problem is that the CFP isn't designed to get the four-best teams into the playoffs; it's designed to get the *best* team into the playoffs, and I don't think it has ever failed in that regard. --- Bonus trivia question: What is the only team (of 14 teams total) in the Big Ten Conference which is not a public schoo
  19. Most of us know him as "the chef at Grapeseed who makes your hand disappear when you shake his," but in his previous life - which now must seem an eternity ago, Jeff played for one of the most legendary high school football teams in the history of the Washington, DC area, the dynastic Seneca Valley Screaming Eagles of Germantown, MD, who hold a record 12 Maryland State High School Football Championships, even though the school opened fairly recently in 1974. During Heineman's time at Seneca Valley, they won the Class A State Championship his freshman and sophomore years, 1979-1980 and 1980-198
  20. I think it's time to accept the fact that these kids are looking for the shortest and most efficient path to the NBA, and I don't blame them - the halcyon days of Lew Alcindor, Bill Walton, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson, Wilt Chamberlain, etc. etc. etc. are over, I'm afraid - it's only fair (who are we to deny these kids their wealth and fame before they get injured?), but a part of my youth has gone away. That said, there's LeBron James.
