“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

At least he had (a lot) more personality than last season's Ann Arbor rep, Eve.
Recall from earlier thread that he has an engineering degree from U of M.
In recent years, I've come to expect less and less from mainstream media outlets. Yet every time I think the bar can't get any lower, someone takes the art of the mini-paragraph to a new level:
Tom Gage wrote an article on Brandon Inge for today's Detroit News. By my count, it was 924 words long, and contained 47 paragraphs. That works out to less than 20 words per paragraph. A dozen of the 'paragraphs' contained ten words or less, and seven contained five words or less. At 31 words, the caption on the article's picture was more than half-again as long as the article's average paragraph.
The article contained 76 sentences, or an average of 1.85 sentences per paragraph. If you exclude a few quotes in the article that contained multiple sentences, that number drops like a stone. I also had to use a veeery loose definition of "sentence" for these calculations, because many of the sets of words between punctiation marks didn't contain the basic elements of a sentence (verbs, nouns, etc.).
Why do you do this?
I'm asking you to stop.
No, not asking...
Breaking news from last week. I can't imagine what distracted us from this.
Jon Runyan won the Republican nomination in NJ's 3rd Congressional District with some 16,800 votes: 60% of the votes cast in the Republican primary. He will face incumbent Democrat John Adler in November. Adler received 75% of the Democrat vote, some 11,500 votes. (NOTE: These are still not official returns.)
Story says formal announcement expected via press conference tomorrow:
Was the B12 South to the P16 simply a ruse orchestrated by TX? Interesting article ...
Is it just me, or is the expansion suddenly grinding to a stop? It seems as if the only piece left is Utah to the Pac 10, and then everyone else sits pat, what with Texas single-handedly saving the Big 12. Weird how it exploded into a huge orgy of news, rumor, and excitement, and now will die within the a day.
