The Difference

Here's a follow-up story in today's Register about how A.J. Price's game has changed from last year to this. Through 14 games last year, 37 percent of his attempted field goals were 3-pointers. Through Price's first 14 games this year, 54 percent of his attempts have been from beyond the arc. Why? Tough to say, but it seems logical to conclude that he has been a little fearful of taking the ball to the hole, in part because of last year's ACL injury.

(Oh, and can anyone name the band that performed the song "The Difference" back in the late-90's? Hint: The lead singer has a very famous musical father)

The Wallflowers.

Kinda off topic, but since you cover college sports you might have an opinion. What do you think of Sam Bradford winning the Heisman over Tebow and McCoy? Did the voters get it right?

Sorry, I'm one of the few people in America, apparently, who could care less about college football.

Oh, and it's Jakob Dylan.

Do you think it would also be fair to attribute some of his increased 3-point shooting to the presence of Kemba Walker, a drive-first point guard? I think this is especially true because when the two are on the floor at the same time Price is playing primarily the off-guard position while Walker is handling the ball. Also, Dr. Dre had a song called "The Difference" of "The Chronic: 2001" album. I figured that probably wasn't what you were talking about though.
