    It’s weird about the Courtney Gardner thing, but fine with me he is on the Dolphins. The kid has issues. Weird, though, that he backed out or we backed out and not too long after he signs somewhere else.

      That dude was bad news. I live in placerville and seen him on Sacramento news for multiple incidents on campus. No Bueno

        That is good to know. Weird. He is just getting started and has issues and problems. Sort of sad.

    Bill Michaelson of ESPN must not had his coffee this morning. Quite a few typos. Interesting that he thinks the Bolts should move Starks to RT, put Fluker at RG, Reinhart at LG, and Dunlap at LT… wonder if that would work? Guess he doesn’t think much of Clary, eh? Let’s do the O-Line Shuffle, everybody… whoop, whoop!!!!

      These whack job news folks are dying to see what it is going to take to get Rivers on a golf cart. Grrr

      Just like they are spinning that Norv is the greatest thing to hit Cleveland, when last year they were saying he was terrible. And he was… but they spin it and will not acknowledge what they said that contradicts what they said even one-half hour previously.

        Agreed. Norv is about as good for Cleveland as a stomach pump! Wait until they hear the “We have an ‘awfully’ good team… and they practice ‘awfully’ hard… and we had a good game plan when we came in.. but, we didn’t execute… and we just need to get better” speech for about the billionth time. Norv DID say awful a whole lot.. which it most definitely was =]
