“The weight thing’s not a big thing with me,” Fangio said Saturday. “He’s going to weigh somewhere between 230 and 235. That’s just what he’s going to weigh. We knew that before we drafted him. So it’s not an issue. We knew that and that’s a fact and that’s what he is.”
Fangio added: “I’m sure there’s going to be a play or two every game where you’re going to say, ‘Jeez, he’s not heavy enough’ or ‘He’s too light.’ Hopefully there’ll be a few plays every game, too, that we say, ‘Well, jeez, we didn’t have anybody who could have done that in the past.’ He is what he is.”
Fangio said the Bears moved up two spots to draft Floyd ninth overall because of his athleticism, length, speed, instincts and versatility.
With the NCAA tourney now in progress, several teams are wearing new March Madness uniforms. The problem is that many of those unis are not so hot, and most of them seem like depressingly rote attempts to move more retail product.
If you want to see a really inspired uniform design that took March Madness by storm, you must go back four decades to the mid-1970s. That’s when Marquette came up with what is still one of the biggest innovations to appear on a basketball court: the untucked jersey.
“Nobody comes to mind immediately, but he’s shown that he’s a good pass-rusher in college,” Fangio said. “He just doesn’t have the numbers to support that on a piece of paper. But a lot of that is due to the way they used him too.”
Sorry, Indiana. Jordan Howard’s heart belongs to The University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Howard is still fond of the Hoosiers, the university he transferred to in 2015. Chosen by the Chicago Bears in the fifth round, Howard sparked Indiana’s offense with 134.8 rushing yards per game (second in the Big Ten), 1,213 rushing yards and nine rushing touchdowns last season.
“He wears all that on his sleeve,” Matheny had said。
There is a fear within the Heat organization that Bosh’s condition will prevent him from ever being cleared to play by team doctors, several sources said. It’s a result of exhaustive consultations with specialists. Something this big and delicate, the sides have gone deep attempting to understand all the options.
It’s forced everyone to confront the possibility of Bosh ultimately being forced into a medical retirement.
Neither the Heat nor Bosh have announced the nature of his medical condition.
Two weeks ago, after months of silence, they released a joint statement that read: “The Heat, Chris, the doctors and medical team have been working together throughout this process and will continue to do so to return Chris to playing basketball as soon as possible.”
