    What happened is you can't measure heart or desire.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Unfortunately the draft doesn't measure that. Especially for undersized players.

    Re: Bowen at combine

    hopefully for him they look at football speed instead of 40 speed


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Bowen at combine

    Doesn't have the size and this reported 40 time won't help. I don't think AB gets drafted, but he'll still get a shot somewhere.

    Bowen's Combine

    Saw today he ran a 4.83. not a real great time for alvin. also only measured at 6-1 224 which is okay size but not great.

    Tuba looks good though. measure a shade under 6-3 at 315 lbs and ran a 5.17 40 which doesnt seem bad for a big dude. also put 225 lbs 35 times which i believe was 2nd most. his stock seems to be rising.

    Wow, I'd have guessed him much faster than that. Hopefully teams will look at his game tapes and ignore his 40

    Re: Bowen's Combine

    I remember getting blasted on here because I said Ace wasn't fast enough to play LB or SS in the league.

    I do agree that 40 times are way overrated. When do you ever run in a straight line? I think Bowen has decent game speed but not enough to play safety. And he is a great LB, but doesn't have the size or strength.

    Re: Bowen's Combine

    this is why the 40 time is becoming so controversial.. I think ace will get a chance to prove himself somewhere and will be an ellis hobbs like story. Tuba is doing great

    The Barnstormers...I hope he gets picked up by some team via free agency/draft , but could he join the Barnstormers in the middle of the season? Didnt know.
