re: Question about youth sports - Oilfieldbiology
[quote]Also, I disagree that 9 year olds can’t learn how to back up and where to go with the ball. Of course, when you have a kid who has never played, that child will be overwhelmed with the sheer volume of information. [/quote] I’m constantly amazed at how much the CAN pick up. I say that I’m t...

re: Do you like the “new” NCAAT? - Oilfieldbiology
[quote]They don't care about devaluing the regular season because they don't care about it at all.[/quote] That’s because any half way decent P5 school gets in. You want to make people care about college basketball again? Make the regular season matter way more than simply a 3 month long seeding ...

re: Question about youth sports - Oilfieldbiology
I think you and I are disagreeing at the margins. We, on the whole, agree about the development. Our team is very young and very inexperienced. Me and the other coaches want to let all of the kids try all the positions through the first 4-5 games of the year, see where they are best at, and then...

re: Question about youth sports - Oilfieldbiology
[quote]As long as they work hard, they should continue to be given chances, even if they suck.[/quote] This is the only thing I demand of the kids on our team. If they do not hustle during drills or are CONSTANTLY messing around and not paying attention I get pissed. Our team is very young (6...

re: Question about youth sports - Oilfieldbiology
I always said elementary school all kids should play and all should have fun. Start getting to middle school and you start selecting kids based on talent. There are stories of kids in kindergarten getting cut because they aren’t good enough. That’s absolutely insane to me. Now if the kid isn...

re: Question about youth sports - Oilfieldbiology
At 8u it’s still coaches pitch in all rec leagues. There is no stealing. I agree that forcing you to play a kid in the infield isn’t the best, but you as a coach should be putting kids there at this age so that the game is fun. It sucks to be stuck back at catcher or in RF and never actually get...

re: Question about youth sports - Oilfieldbiology
[quote]coach Little League baseball. The fair play rules vary by age. If you are 8u or 9u, every kid has to get at least one inning of IF. I personally hate that rule because it means that you always have one kid in the infield, who is a weak player. By default, that pulls down your strong players, ...

re: California Bureaucrats Empowered to Dictate Gasoline Prices - Oilfieldbiology
[quote]had an uncle he use to have a gas station & tire shop. I want to say he used to me 3 or 4 cents a gallon.[/quote] Gasoline is the majority of the revenue, but I believe the majority of the profits come from the food, drinks, tobacco products, and liquor inside. Someone needs to check m...

[quote]Big Noon Kick Off is better anyways.[/quote] It was until they started following the Gameday model of Sob stories and non-football fluff pieces. They still aren’t nearly as bad, but if they start adding fitness trainers, on camera betting personalities, over the top bro’s like Macafee, and...

re: Newton to throw at Auburn Pro Day - Oilfieldbiology
Backup QB’s are also supposed to be extra film analysts and coaches. Was Newton known as a slouch when it came to film study? If he was. That’s a huge reason. That backup spot still holds value and purpose and isn’t just an empty position collecting checks. ...

re: bright young woman writes about Russia and Ukraine... in 2014 - Oilfieldbiology
[quote]Ukraine’s former president was too much in favor of relations with Russia, a country that you might know as the country that hates gay people. Russia is filled with bad guys. They aren’t about social justice, and that’s all you really need to know to form an opinion on Russia. [/quote] Wow...
