@BeddieKU23 said in Doke snubbed from Defensive POY list:
Doke with his current defensive rating would rank 11th overall since 2009.
It’s completely ludicrous he has been left off the list
Edited: Doke is 11th not 9th

That’s a really small amount of weed, the weapons charge will be what gets him. Nothing to do with basketballs issue or even Les Miles. Beaty as previously stated would hide this and let it go. He has been a let down IMO anyway. Wash hands and done.
Oh it is a football issue , doesn’t mean crap that Miles didn’t recruit him. - -He was a Starter on the team with Miles coaching - - it’s not Coach Miles fault - - but IT IS a football issue – it’s a football player from the current team, - and ya he needs to be done
Agreed. The constant excuse making gets old. Players like that need to go.
@dylans I really hope they are able to keep both players, it will be interesting to see if they wait til after the season starts to offer Mahomes a contract. I’m hoping he wants to continue winning and doesn’t sign a max deal. He seems smart enough to do so. LeBron and Brady had big endorsements that helped. Mahomes already has State Farm, Adidas, Hunts, Amazon and Head & Shoulders. I think they need to bulk up the offensive line first and foremost, then secondary and get some linebackers. Would be tough to do all but if they resign most of the current guys and do 2 of 3. They have a good shot at a repeat baring injuries.
I’ve been gone for awhile. I’ve been okay, though. Part of it was being fairly busy with work and family things.
The other part was frustration with some of the topics/commentary that was going on that had shifted from enriching debate to something else.
I saw a particular topic that bothered me. I was about to respond, but I happened to be at home at the time and caught a glimpse of a picture of me and my wife. I looked around the room and saw pictures of family and other reminders of how much I have been blessed and it reminded me of all of the good things going on in my life despite that topic being on an internet message board. I decided not to respond and logged off.
I hadn’t logged on since then for a lot of reasons, not really related to this board or the people on it. Moreso related to being busy, a couple of health scares in the family (all good now, but a bit concerning at the time) and the normal things in life.
I will admit that stepping away from the board helped me gain a bit more perspective.
I probably won’t engage in the political stuff much on here, but I should be back on about basketball more consistently.
I worked at the Burlington (Vt) Free Press 89-91 when Sanders was mayor and he won his first term in congress. It was stunning to see the staunch conservatives in the “northeast kingdom” back him because he was so far left he started to appeal to libertarians.
He calls himself a “democratic socialist” today, but he was unapologetically a socialist back when he was mayor. He and several on his staff took winter trips to Cuba. I don’t think his philosophy has changed… but he has honed his messaging very well.
