The second day of the 2016 NFL Draft is under way. What kinds of crazy things will happen tonight?
Two guys with injury question marks are already off the board. Jaylon Smith (Notre Dame) was picked by the Cowboys, and Myles Jack (UCLA) went to the Jaguars.
A couple of years ago I bought an MGOSTORE shirt - "Why There's No Mascot in Ann Arbor." It was yellow and had a wolverine sitting atop a pile of dead or defeated Big 10 mascots. The shirt got lost in my move from Alaska to the Lower 48 and I'd dearly like a replacement. But, it is nowhere to be found at the MGOSTORE. I emailed them and they have no idea that they ever carried it! Does anyone have a lead where I might find this item? Tried Ebay, too.
I don't know how to embed tweets, but I found this to be awesome! At first I enjoyed Coach helping the workers hanging the All American pictures. Then I noticed he was hanging his own, and found that to be even more awesome!
edit: didn't notice title at first
I was pretty ignorant on this topic for a long time. I think a lot of men are, because it’s often talked about as a women’s issue. The focus always seems to be on teaching young women how not to get raped and on what steps they can take to “stay safe.” But why are we not also focused on educating young men about the definition of consent and what constitutes rape? We’re essentially dealing with the problem by telling women to be more careful.
And that’s bullshit.
I really liked this article because it goes beyond acknowledging the obvious (that rape is far too prevalent and severely under-reported) and speaks to the cultural factors that are that the root of the issue. As a personal aside, I recently finished NFL Confidential by an anonymous former NFL player and one of the chapters touched on how laughably half-assed NFL sensitivity training seminars are - zero percent surprising from a league where beating up your fiancee in an elevator is two gamechecks less awful than deflating footballs. One of the great points Levy makes is that because of our collective worship for football and other major sports, pro athletes are - fairly or not - thrust front and center into this discussion because they're seen as paragons of masculinity.
