Welcome to the new and improved 18to88.com. We've updated our commenting system.
It may take a little while to get used to, and I'm sorry for those who have to re-register. I know it's a hassle. Among the many new advantages is that you'll be able to respond to comments via email. This should help to facilitate debate here on the site. The only downside is that we've lost the comments from just this months' previous posts. I'm sure we can all live with that. Also, if you comment on articles older than May 1st of this year, the old comment system is still in place.
I also want to take this chance to introduce (again) Jesse Nocon. Jesse broke onto the scene a few weeks ago with a great scouting report on Kevin Thomas.
Jesse is a student at USC and wants to become a scout. He'll be doing some regular work for 18to88 mostly focusing on draft/college scouting stuff. As you know, that's always been a blind spot for us, because we just don't follow the college game closely enough.
Jesse won himself a 'spot in the starting lineup' with his incredible piece which will debut tomorrow. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. A lot of people have tried to get writing jobs here, but my standards are high. Jesse's first article was so strong that I asked him to be a regular without hesitation. Tomorrow, he'll attempt to 'crack the code' the Colts use to build their draft board. I found his research to be compelling.
