  1. Tommy G........... Hey nice job on the show tonight...........really! I thought you did great. I've listened as the show's evolved over the past couple years, and been impressed how UAM has worked it into a position where finally it might be signficant in the community. I could tell you did a lot of prep for the show, and it paid off. I think you'll get much more listener feedback and phone ins starting this fall................because of the foundation and your prep and style. Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeel nice. OLZIP and ZP probably will call with some insignificant rant for you to fix up........... Boss...........give that boy and his boss a raise About Coach...............I don't know him (yet). I'm pulling for the program, but just don't have a good read on Coach B. (yet). I will say this, he moved up on the Z-P o-meter big time tonight by the manner in which he handled himself. What I mean by that is just this................he stays in the present and future. Understand? He's got plenty of opportunity to knock the past, but he always walks away from it and looks forward..............do you know what I mean? That shows me some heavy character. I'd like to know more about his background, but never will................I'd guess he's been thru some real serious career and personal difficulty, and come away vastly stronger and more self confident because of it.............he shows that. For example.....................he said this, and I'm sure he meant it............."if someone plays better than Superman, he'll get the job"...........now we all know how crazy that statement is, but know what? It's not so crazy. It's a peek at JD's character. It's a hidden statement about how he feels about himself.................he's going to do the best job he possibly can, and if it's not good enough in 04, he'll go give it hell in 05 and fix it. That's my read, and so far, I like it. He gives me the impression that if everyone quit the team when the Boss let LO go, so be it..................he'd just get the hell to work and fix it...............I like that. forward focus, no finger pointing, no blame, no fault finding, just full steam ahead. That's me though..............I'm into management styles..............a person is exponentially able to increase their effectiveness by the number of good and motivated people around them...............and other assorted cliches That's it..............back into the Pinto in the morning, and in front of my machine for 8. ll
  2. Somebody pour cold water on my little buddy quick!!!!!!! :blink:
  3. Solved my own problem...............the old fashioned way, I went to researched and worked on it If any other sluggie has the samd pop up problem, let me know and I'll tell you how to fix it.
  4. ZB...........nice post. It gives us a way to keep truckin thru the down time. Here are my thoughts.......... 1. Jerrell is OK, but barely. He's a good solid back. He'll get us a thou if we construct and execute any kind of running game. No fall off here...........plus he's a real good kid. The only question mark is how good can he defend. 42 was outstanding at sawing off incoming flack for 5. 2. I want Arthur at trigger. I don't know how accurate or strong his gun is, but if he's just average, his athleticism could take us a long way. Ferggy may be fine also, but let's wait and see...............we may be on the brink of another Nick/Charlie type dealio here. 3. This opens up the biggest piss off I had about last season. As the little man (the dude) explained, in the summer LO et al sacked any kind of running attack in favor of the spread and "zone blocking" schemes. The only problem was that our O-Line staff had no experience with that type of offense.............so they couldn't teach our big guys anything. Hence, we (the sluggies) have little idea about who is good and who is not. It all depends on the new staff, and how they want to do business.........I know this, we do have the physical specimens on the roster to do a good job anywhere along the front if lead properly. 4. It couldn't possibly be any frikin worse..............no fault of the guys. 5, 6, 7, 8 Nobody can answer these at this moment...........we'll have to wait a few more weeks I guess........... 9. We can't know until we see some spring ball, and get a feel for how the new guys want to go................then we'll give our valuable guidance 10. Good Q..............I think he's there and he'll be a big time assist on D. Too bad we didn't have him last season............. 11. I get the impression Shippy had a taste of what could happen if he lost this chance at an education, experience and maybe even a career. He's a neat young man, and I hope he's in the mix for 04. 12. Here's the skinny..............the old guys got a lot of pub on what a nice job they did with the "student side" of the program...........well guess what? If you run down the facts, I think UA is in the bottom 2 or 3 in the MAC in player GPA and graduation rates. I never understood how the crap we were fed got thru the "truth gauntlet". We've got a LOT of guys on the grade bubble. It's scarry. Take Shippy for example.............he has a "mentor" who virtually has become his "father in Akron" to keep him in the action.....there are many like this and we're always just a blink away from disaster. 13. Ya know................OK, "how can it be worse?"...............everybody says that, but you know what? These poor players are on their 3rd coach in 4 years. So you know what? It can be worse. I hope the hell it's not, but it could be. Good thing we've got so many returning players on that side of the ball........... 14. Dewaynes an enigm...........sometimes he's a monster, other times a kitten. He's certainly got the package, but whether or not he brings it to the field seems to totally be between his ears........... 15. ZB..........how could you even ask this.............Blackie is the real deal in every way. ILFSITF
  5. Oops.......... Forgot to ID myself............this is ZP on my slave driver's system at home, sorry. Sort of like "CK at home" IYKWIM
  6. Hey ZW......... I get tons and tons of pop ups under "Message Service"..........really annoying. I've cleaned out my cookies but the magnet is still in my system for some reason. Are you familiar with this PIA? Can you help me out? Thanks from the front row...........
