    I was heading home when the rain started. No issues at then at 8:30, but by 9 I was hearing reports of icy on/off ramps on FB.

    Worst keeper/first round pick ever. The good news is I drafted Conner. At least in this league, I can keep Bell around for next year and along with Conner, and have two stud backs, assuming I don't play my way out of the league.

    Yes, that happens, but that's just a kid hear and there. Again, I can name at least a 1/2 dozen guys playing for SK that by where they live, should go to Scott, and would start and make an impact for Scott.

    There are at least a half dozen or so CU's in NKY. But I think they are all single location. It's worth having an account with a CU, simply for borrowing purposes, especially auto loans. In your case though, it sounds like you are strictly cash, so the lack of convenience is probably a big issue.

    Apples and oranges. SK’s size and the fact that they have two feeder programs provide them more talent and more depth. Despite the recent success, there are still many in the area that still think of Scott as the old Scott. Open enrollment is still a problem, as I know of at least a half dozen quality players that should be at Scott that are open enrolled at SK. The new coach is going to have to find a way to keep more of those kids. Scott...

    What you run isn't as important as committing to a system, and developing players within that system. You don't need to run a spread in high school to be successful. Running the spread wouldn't have helped Scott beat Johnson Central who's knocked them out of the playoffs the last four years. This should be a very appealing job. Great facilities, a solid youth and middle school program, a very solid returning core, and the upcoming...

    I think I've been in a bank maybe twice this whole year....both times related to opening a new account at a new bank for my son who headed off to college this fall. With direct deposit, and apps that allow you to transfer, do mobile deposits, report card issues etc at any time of the day, there's simply no reason for me to set foot in a bank. I can see if you have a cash business, then obviously you'll need to make trips to the bank to deposit...

    Coach Woolley has a young daughter and a second on the way. This is purely about him being able to spend time with his family. With what he's accomplished with Scott, compared to where they were for the first 30 years of their existence, he could've coached there the rest of his life.

    Without a doubt. The only reason I mentioned that was to shed a little perspective on my review. With two of the places I mentioned, locations are more limited than other choices in the area (especially Republic), but since I do very little banking in person, except for the ocassional trip to the ATM, number of locations really don't factor into my level of satisfaction.

    Huntington is my main bank. I've never had an issue with locations. There are at least 4 within 10-15 minutes of me in the Taylor Mill area. Locations really don't matter that much to me as I do most of my banking through the web or via the app. I haven't set foot in a bank in a few months.

    I have a few accounts with Republic, and they have a basic checking account that is free. Their premium accounts carry minimum balance fees ($25k for premier, $1k for an interest bearing checking account). Their savings account have minimum balance fees as well, but they are very manageable. Also, their customer service is outstanding. The problem is they've only got a couple locations in NKY---Crestview Hills, Covington and Union. My...

    Last minute pivot from Kerryon Johnson cost me the W this week. Not to mention Trubisky had another big week on the bench. High Ceiling, but his floor is also low, making him hard to play over Rodgers.

    I had almost completely moved on and forgotten about the Sons in this show. Now it looks like, they will be a big part of the storyline for next season. Next season is really set up nicely now, and I'm kind of bummed we have to wait a year now to see how it plays out.

    Again, check out Scott County’s 2013 schedule, and tell me which regular season game got them over the hump to win the title. Was it the 5 win Henry Clay team? Or was it because they had the best players and a very good coach?

    While schedule is important, that drum gets beaten too hard on these boards. Remember, Scott County won the 6a title in 2013 while playing only one team during the regular season with a winning record. For most High School teams, their schedule isnít why they win or donít win games. Mostly it comes down to who has the best players. With how 6a has played out this, it wouldnít surprise me if SK keeps this one close, or even wins. It also...

    To say current NFL game and players are soft is simply not correct. I understand the nostagia that folks feel for the old days. And yes, those guys were absolutely tough. But 3 yards and a cloud of dust was boring, unimaginative, and had the sport not evolved, it wouldn't be anywhere near the popularity that it is now. And today's player is absolutely, tough. While some of the violence has been removed, the game is still a grind, and...

    It is the part of the season where byes affect everyone. In a 16 team league, there’s not a lot of depth, so it’s no big deal to give a spot to get the defense you want to cover your bye week or to give yourself a second option on defense to exploit a good matchup. Most defenses can out score whatever scraps are left on the waiver wire at this point in the season.

    I don’t see how playing behind a great o line hinders development. Especially when you look at how QB’s have had careers torpedoed by playing behind bad o lines. Dak has been hurt by not having any real playmakers aside from Elliot. While I don’t think he’s anywhere near a top tier (or even middle tier QB), the Cowboys haven’t done much to help him out.

    Had a major sweat last night. Was in second place in my usual GPP last night right up until about 1 minute left in the Golden State. Went from winning $750 to only $50 in about 10 seconds.

    I haven't encountered anything my Surface can't do that a laptop could. It is a little awkward to try to sit the Surface on your lap, but it's very portable, works just like a PC (aside from the smaller screen), and the Pen is way better than Apple's pen. The only thing I really don't like is the weird, proprietary charging cable, and lack of USB C port. I still use my Ipad pro 9.7, but with bigger Iphones, and now my Surface, I probably...

    I don't think so. One it fills a need...outside of Jeffrey, Ertz and Agholar, they don't have much at the receiver position. Tate can play outside or the slot, and should help free the others up. Plus the Eagles still do have 2 second round picks in 2019 so they can afford to lose the 3rd round pick they gave up for Tate, as long as they extend his deal.

    If a guy isn’t looking, and doesn’t see it coming, how much force do you need? Yes, this eliminates the big de-cleating blocks, and the silly phrase coaches use (“gotta keep your head on a swivel) to justify a cheap shot. I’ve seen too many guys get needlessly hurt on this play over the years. It’s a good rule, that makes the game safer for everybody.

    Itís not that difficult or dangerous. The blocker isnít making contact with his arms locked and extended. Get in good position, and instead of lowering the shoulder (and bringing the head into play) you basically deliver the blow while extending the arms. Itís every bit as effective on a player thatís not looking and a lot safer. Watch NFL lineman on screen plays...they execute this block all the time.

    As others have said, contact has to be initiated with the hands and arms extended. If you lead with the shoulder, your getting flagged whether your head is in front or not. The rule does require some coaching so the players understand and develop the correct habits, but it does make the game safer.

    Let me clear up what I'm trying to say. Holmes very well may have been the best team in the NKMSAA this year. Holmes does have the advantage of playing down a division (their enrollment is larger than both Summit View and Woodland who play in the large division), and I'm not sure if they would have been as dominant this year playing in the Large School Division, although there's a good chance they would have won that division too. The...
