"People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." - Mark Dantonio.
That dude is the non-cartoon version of Rainier Wolfcastle.
Did you think they had left?
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
That is pretty ridiculous. I do think that 90% of the non-kickers in the league are heavily juiced though.
Wait til they start testing in the NBA and watch how quickly Lebron retires.
That's the dude from Hillsdale? He's 6'8.
The NBA's primary PED is weed.
Hard to believe this dude did absolutely nothing in high school.
Thats a stupid comment. Lebron had an NBA body in high school, and you could tell he could put on the weight he did just from his body type. Other players, maybe, but lebron.... no.
Won't matter. Fans do not care about steroids in the NFL. They only care about steroids in MLB. They will demonize any MLB player caught using any type of PED for whatever reason. NFL? Not so much.
Then they will complain about how boring baseball is when Pitchers dominate.
This was a topic on espn radio I believe. They had an ex-NBA player talking about it and he was saying that they "alternative" medicine stuff would be more of a worry in the NBA than Steroids because more muscle is not necessarily good if you lose some flexibility. ( Well being less nimble I guess you could say?) It made sense to me.
I hate LeBron but this is true

Ummm, I made the comment because there are high school kids taking all kinds of things to speed up the process in regards to strength and build, ala Lebron. The Players Association has been trying desperately (and probably financially) to keep the testing from happening. Gee, I wonder why? Every sport has their vices, and the NBA is no exception.
I feel some more research is needed on this fellow. I'm guessing he was not a four star recruit.
NHL players make the same argument. but I don't buy it. You take steroids differently depending on the activity you're training for. An NFL lineman is going to try to pack on as much muscle as possible to get bigger and stronger to overpower the guy across from them. An NHL or NBA player is going to take steroids to get stronger and quicker, but also to help with recovery during a season where they play almost every other day. Lance Armstrong took steroids, but looking at him you would never know it.
First thing that came to my mind was Tony Mandarich. Is that weird?
University of Michigan: Keeping ugly girls out of East Lansing since 1837!
Yep, I agree. Same argument for baseball and even when questions came up about Tiger Woods. Building muscle mass isn't the only goal with these things.
He was a somewhat chubby, uncoordinated 6'8" o-lineman from Forest Hills Northern. Found the weight room (and maybe some other things) at Hillsdale and was a 3rd round draft pick. Owns a gym in GR, so something tells me he spends a lot of time there in the off-season.
I saw Jared at the MSU v. Wisconsin game a few weeks ago. He had great seats, and I'm glad I didn't have to sit behind him.
actually i believe that Arnold is the non-cartoon versio...you know what, nevermind.
Your average UofM fan and I have something in common, neither of us went to UofM. Though we do share One major difference, I got Accepted.
To be honest, amphetamines have always been better for baseball. Sure, the strength helped, but keeping your energy up with the everyday play and travel is just as big.
Which is why 10% of MLB players have adderall scrips.
Funny thing is, he played almost exclusively on the defensive side of the ball senior year in high school, IIRC. The only reason he even got an offer from Hillsdale is one of their basketball coaches was scouting at a game Veldheer was playing in. The Bball coach called up the football office, and the rest is history.
