Folks, quit bickering.
It's better than fat people at WalMart.
I'm glad nobody ever scoffs at or chides my opionions. I wonder how it must feel.
Your opinions are ridiculous. Now how do you feel?
Probably like you were being facetious in the first place.
Here's a little mod philos0phy. No one's really out of line, just an exercise.
Poster A: We should have more commitments by now. I'm nervous.
Poster B: In my opinion, it's too early to be worried and here's why. In my further opinion, your opinion is silly.
Poster C: Hey B, stop attacking other people's opinions. In my opinion your aggressiveness is driving potential posters away.
Poster A is offering an opinion and his feelings about it. Poster B is mixing an opinion about the topic with an implied opinion about Poster A (he's capable of "silly" opinions). Poster C is offering an opinion only about Poster B's behavior and nothing about the topic.
Thus "bickering" begins. Moral of the story: Saying something is an opinion doesn't automatically make it OK. It depends on the words used and whether the opinion is about the topic, or about the other poster, or both.
That Poster B guy is very good looking.
I'm sure as a fan of someone other than UConn, you think we are crazy to worry about recruiting.
Well, that's an opinion.
So far I've thought he only gets by with smarts and a charming manner.
That's your opinion.
Recruiting is a concern for all fans, so I completely get it. A weak recruiting year or two can have a big impact.
You saw me at WalMart?
nah, it was the "impact" tremors that tipped me off!
Not too worried, Chong, Harper and McCall and that would be fantastic.
That's merely your opinion.
Ok, to make things concrete, here are 2 hypothetical--and extreme--lineups for the 2015-16 team:
Seniors: Stewart, Jefferson, Tuck start. Juniors: Tucker and Harper start. Chong and McCall come in off the bench. Maybe the sophomore class is loaded, maybe it's small and lackluster. Our first 7 is very good. And we have depth.
Seniors: Stewart, Jefferson, Tuck start. Juniors: None. Two sophomores start. Maybe the sophomore class is loaded, maybe it's small and lackluster. If those 2 starters are Brianna Turner and Sierra Calhoun, we may be fine, though perhaps not deep. If the 2 starters are #40 and #60 ranked players, we will be vulnerable at those positions. With 3 studs and 2 so-so players starting, we'll be competitive, but not a prohibitive favorite at all. The following year, we may be lucky to make the Elite 8. Another NC may be 2 or more years down the road.
1. The 2013 class still could be very good, or it could be a total bust (or in between). If a bust, we are vulnerable for sure by 2016 and perhaps very weak by UConn standards in 2017.
2. The weaker the class of 2013, the larger and better the 2014 class needs to be. Plus, they need to be up to speed by day 1 of their sophomore years, because up to 2 of them could be in the starting lineup.
No, it's fact. Ask his grandchildren!
Guess I didn't recognize you in your underwear.
You've seen him without his underwear? Too much information.
Uh, er, umm, didn't mean it exactly that way.
Quite honestly not me because it has always been fun to watch the kids we get.
I guess it depends on what "so-so" means.
And I'd ask you to look at the last two Taursai seasons and see how Stewart, Tuck and Jefferson along with 2 so-so players would match up with thse NC teams.
Who asked you?
Separate names with a comma.
