Maybe we should have taken him to the Sac State game?

The above photo is promising though. Is he pictured with his little brother?

We need to make sure he has seen the Forbes post about Cal being #1.

I think we need to get that to his mom, the Stanford grad.

Where was St. Mary's and WSU on the list?

What if she takes it as taunting and it backfires?

You should sue your teachers for how poorly they taught you punctuation.

Yeah, unless his dad is 6'4" and his mom is 5'10. What is your guess, 5'11" or 6'?

I'm not too worried about height in a PG. I would love to have the next Jerome Randle. His handle, quickness, passing, shooting, vision and leadership are what matters.

When you play Cal Basketball, your actual height need only "approach" your listed height. Look it up. He will fit right in!

More than one. Upper case to start a sentence, for one. Too many commas, for another. 6/3 is not how you list feet and inches, for the "didn't pass elementary grammar" trifecta.

If "6/3" refers to division and the answer is 2 meters I'm all in.

Small h should have been capitalized. Laziness on my part. Other than that, no grammatical errors. Commas are proper. Also, no one should be confused by 6/3. Not even you. Purpose of grammar is clarification. Were you confused by 6/3????Maybe you added the two numbers and came up with nine??That would explain your confusion. Also, no one should be confused by your attempt at proper English grammar. Your animus is so transparent you wouldn't have fooled Joe Biden who clearly has reached stage three dementia. Go back and read your critique..Your commas are inappropriate.
helltopay1
How long do you want to ignore this user?
specifically, here are your four grammatical errors.

1) Your comma after commas is inappropriate.
2) Your comma after inches is inappropriate.
3) Your first sentence does not contain a subject or a verb.
4) Your second sentence contains neither a subject nor a verb.

He is probably six foot three inches ( anyone confused?) if you count his elevator shoes and haircut.
This exaggeration of height is ridiculous. No one is fooled. It only makes you look foolish.

You can always tell the rough age of a writer by how many
or how few commas are used. As a general rule, the more commas, the younger the writer.

The reason is simple..Like many other subjects, grammar is no longer taught at the elementary level.

In conclusion, let me say this: If Mahaney is almost as good as Matheny, I'm down with the young lad.

I just thought if I used enough commas, I could "pass".

Cute. However, you need a comma after the word "No".

Boy, you got that right. Bob Matheny was a 1st team All Conference guard for Cal in '53 and a 3rd team All American in '54. I saw a lot of his games as a 10 or 11 year old. He was my favorite Cal guard until Buch and Fitzpatrick came along. I tried to pattern my game after him, but I failed. He could do it all, pass, shoot, play D and rebound.

I have a question for you. He played as a sophomore in 1950, but then missed the next two years, before returning to play his junior and senior seasons. Why was that?

Matheny developed tuberculosis. He was also in the service. As a result, at one point playing for Cal, I believe he was 26 years old.

How soon do you think we'll get confirmation ? Also when all these recruits come and pay an official visit to Cal and posts photos of them wearing a Cal jersey and then choose to go elsewhere- do you think they keep the Cal jerseys or dispose of them or are they justed rented out for the photoshoot ?
