Hearing some solid debate about the lack of balance regarding how the Steelers have dealt with Santonio Holmes and Ben Roethlisberger. Holmes, after another legal run in and a failed drug test was traded to the Jets. Ben again side stepped prosecution in Georgia after the DA decided against pursuing his sexual assault case. Some are crying race. Here's my angle if you're Pittsburgh. It's not a matter of black and white, but wide receiver and quarterback. Quality QB's are a billion times more valuable to a franchise than a wide out. Cold? Harsh? Certainly because most wide receivers are black, most quarterbacks are white. Also, keep an ear out for how Ben's meeting with the commish turns out or if there is a team punishment pending because the Steeler organization hates this low character crap.
I'm not one of them, but I really feel for Blazer fans. The news that Brandon Roy is toast for the season with a knee injury just plain stinks. Since they've accepted the loss of big guys Oden and Joel P, acquired Marcus Camby, they've become a dangerous threat in the NBA playoffs. We saw last night that it's not a matter of simply plugging in Rudy Fernandez at the 2 guard spot. Rudy has value but is completely unable to create his own shot or perform in the clutch like Brandon and he's simply not the heart and soul of this team. We've learned they've avoided LA in the first round, but regardless, can't imagine they'll take out Denver, Dallas, Utah or Phoenix without Roy.
I saw Clemson has already filled their coaching vacancy with Brad Brownell of Wright State. The Raiders have become a solid Horizon League program but obviously play 2nd fiddle to national runner-up Butler. Clemson lost their coach on April 5th when Oliver Purnell took the Depaul gig. Took them 8 days and that was after a resignation. Still waiting on Oregon.
Okay, for some free Duck gear, email the correct answer to this question to
When was the last time Wright State made the Big Dance and what was the result of their 1st round game?
