  1. The Everything Else Thread v. 8.0

    I'm looking to get a masters in Sport Management. There's only a few schools throughout Europe that offers that at the Masters level and none here in Denmark. The schools I've been looking at comes primarily from SportBusiness' rankings of the 40 best Postgraduate programs. I want that extra level of education compared to my competition here in Denmark. I know that a lot of danish sports organisations looks towards the US for inspiration and ideas, so ideally I can get a year or two (maybe more?) of working experience after grad-school. All of the things you mentioned is a big part as to why Austin and UT is so enticing to me. There are so many opportunities. The only thing that Austin doesn't have, that NY and LA does, is a direct flight to Denmark. But that's such a little, and unimportant, thing that I won't let that factor into my decision. It really doesn't matter if it's a 12 hour trip from NY to my home in Denmark, or a 20 hour trip from Austin. Unfortunately I've never been to Austin, so it's a complete unknown to me. That scares me a bit. All of the other schools I'm looking at are located in a city or an area that I've been to before. It gives me some kind of comfort knowing that the city is like. But no doubt I'll come visit Austin if that's where I choose to go and I get accepted in.
  2. The Everything Else Thread v. 8.0

    "Do what you want now and get the experience you want. Your masters degree is going to hold value regardless". Thank you! I really mean that. This is one of the best recommendations/suggestions I've come across while seeking help/advice. For some reason I never thought about it like that.
  3. The Everything Else Thread v. 8.0

    Honestly, that sounds awesome! As a Dane, I can relate to free education, lol. Good point regarding school size. Schools in Denmark are generally smaller than those in the US, and all schools I've been attending so far have been rather small (tiny actually) compared to US schools. My local university here in Denmark have about 45K students and I've been around campus a lot, so maybe it wouldn't be such a big difference for me to go to a big state college? The whole thing about leaving my bubble is a big reason why I want to go to the US for grad-school. But I never thought about the religious aspect of school. How much influence does religion have on schools? I know some schools are a bit more religious than others (Notre Dame for instance), but in general? I haven't found anything saying the schools I'm looking at are religious in any way (I looked up Carson-Newman and the first sentence on Wikipedia mentioned it's religious beliefs). Do you have any experience regarding living accommodations? It seems awfully expensive to live at a Dorm on campus? I have a friend who did a semester at P5 school and he told me to find housing outside of campus due to that.
  4. The Everything Else Thread v. 8.0

    Most of the schools I'm looking at are P5 schools, but I'm also looking at a few schools with more prestigious academics (Georgetown, University of San Francisco and Columbia). But those schools are the only non-P5 I'm looking at currently. Part of me wants to go with the best academics as possible, so that my degree holds a value (especially if when I'm going back to Europe to work), but another part of me wants that full college-experience with awesome athletic departments and a lot of fun. I'm a Texas fan and it's something I've been for almost a decade, and they are probably #1 my list. I know a lot about the athletic department, and as far as I can tell, they are a pretty good school, academic wise. Texas seems to be the perfect mix.
  5. The Everything Else Thread v. 8.0

    This is a pretty big step for me, so I'm taking all the help I can. I'm currently in the process of applying to grad school in the US (I'm from Denmark). I know what I'm going to study and I've been narrowing down the list of schools I'm applying to based on who offers that program. I have somewhat of an idea of what I'm looking for, but there's definitely things I've forgot to include. Maybe you guys can help me make a more educated decision? Where did you guys go to school (both undergrad and grad school), and why did you pick that school? What kind of concerns and thoughts influenced your decision the most? Anything you've regretted since? I hope you guys are willing to share your thoughts about your own college experience.
  6. 2019 NFL Draft/College Thread

    For the most part, I agree with this. But I did see a mock a few days ago, that had us taking TJ Hockenson in the 2nd round (without trading up). If Hockenson is there at #51, I would be welcoming of him. I also feel like Cody Ford could be an interesting pick at #20, if the board falls out horrible for us. I think he'll be a very, very good player in the NFL for a long time (might be as a OG though). But outside of those, two scenarios, I won't be a fan of Tackle or TE on the first two days.

  10. Cyprien Out For The Year

    I think Reid's the better safety, but I think Vaccaro's the better overall DB and the better fit for what we, probably, wanted Cyprien to do in our new defense. I'd prefer Vaccaro simply because he got tats.
  11. Training Camp Thread

    Sooo.... Apparently we've signed DL Du'vonta Lampkin. UDFA from Oklahoma. Signed with Ravens after the draft. I followed him in HS when he was headed to Texas. He got cold feet, so he flunked a spanish class and got rejected admission by Texas so he could go to Oklahoma without sitting out as a regular transfer. ****** move, IMO. He had potential, but I have no idea why he came out this year instead of waiting another year. Redshirt sophomore, I think. IIRC he had weight issues throughout his career at Oklahoma.
  12. The Offseason Thread

    Just saw we have former Miami and UCLA OL Sunny Odogwu in our Rookie Mini Camp. Which, somehow, pleases me. I saw this video a few years ago and he became an instant favorite. I'll root for him! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkV-RiomRaQ
  13. NFL Draft Day 3 discussion

    Yeah. I saw a tweet earlier, saying how remarkable it was to trade up three times without giving up a single future pick.
  14. 2018 Prospect Visits, Workouts and Interviews

    Agree, 100%. I wrote in the "10 favorite prospects"-thread that I had Carter higher on my board than Sweat. I definitely think Carter should be in the #25 conversation. But then again, I like Carter more than Roquan Smith from a Pro-perspective.
  15. Who are your 10 FAVORITE Draft Prospects?

    No order: 1. Harold Landry, EDGE, Boston College - The draft community seems higher on him than the insiders (or those that claims to know people...). I think he might be there at #25 2. Rashaan Evans, LB, Alabama - I really, really like Evans. He's my #2 LB (after Edmunds) and I think he's only scratching the surface. He's probably my favorite for #25. 3. Isaiah Wynn, OL, Georgia - After Nelson, Wynn is my favorite OL in this draft. I can't help but see Zack Martin when I see him. 4. Josh Sweat, EDGE, Florida State - I'm somewhat iffy on Sweat. I think I love what he can be, but I don't like what he has been at FSU. Scheme or not, I would've preferred to see more from him. His knee isn't favorable as well. 5. Lorenzo Carter, EDGE, Georgia - Carter, to me, is one of the most underrated players in this draft. I've been a huge fan for a couple of years now. He's probably higher on my board than Sweat. 6. Genard Avery, LB, Memphis - I'm not sure Avery is much different from Williamson, so I'm not sure if he's really on our board. I do, however, think Avery can be a London Fletcher type player for a long time. 7. Malik Jefferson, LB, Texas - I'm a Texas fan, so I've watched every single Jefferson game. He's not a finished product by any means, but he has some rare tools that could make him lethal in the NFL. 8. Jessie Bates III, DB, Wake Forest - Bates snuck up on me. I didn't like him at first, but he has grown on me. I think he and Byard could be a very, very good S tandem for years to come. 9. Tony Brown, CB, Alabama - I love Browns mentality. He is the ultimate "dog" in this draft. If we weren't that deep at DB, I would've loved to have Brown at somepoint. Don't think we have that luxury now. 10. Terrell Edmunds, S, Virginia Tech - I've recently seen Edmunds being mentioned with our #25 pick. I wouldn't support that, but I think he would be a great player on day two (preferably in the 3rd round). He can do a lot of the things Byard can and those two would be interchangeable on the back-end.
