This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
LOL Conboy wants to play where he can get away with more! Is he going to try to remove his skate and stab someone????
Another idiot sportswriter, not to mention a newspaper in dire need of competent copy-editing:
"The native of Burnsville, Minn., indicated his scholarship had not been revoked and he could possibly have gone back to the school next season if Wolverines coach Red Berenson would have allowed him to return. He chose instead to start his professional career."
As society moves toward more extreme forms of entertainment, as the popularity of MMA over boxing in recent years illustrates, perhaps an extreme hockey league will be formed. Players could armor up and have an anything goes free for all on the ice. Conboy could then practice his style of hockey. Or maybe he should just look into contract killing for the mob.
Boxing is far more brutal on a person than MMA. I don't know of any braindead MMA guys.
The UFC of old was brutal, but today there are a lot of rules to turn it into an actual sport.
This is absolutely correct. MMA fights are shorter, they stop them quicker, and the variety of combat means fights usually aren't two guys with huge gloves hitting each other in the head.
I love boxing, but I also love MMA and the idea that it's more dangerous is, frankly, absurd.
great and omniscient Grand Poobah of the WLA
I think Conboy took the film "300" a little too seriously.
And, considering its subject matter, I'm sure it is required viewing for all Spartans.
What you all don't understand is that fighting makes it easy for hockey players to vent frustrations. There are a lot of hockey people who have written that if the NCAA allowed fighting this wouldn't have happened.
When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing. -- Bo Schembechler
Word. But as any hockey fan/player can tell you, it is nearly impossible to convince a casual hockey/sports observer of this truth
Just out of curiosity, why is it okay for hockey players to vent their frustrations by fighting, but not ok for football, basketball, soccer, or baseball players to do the same thing?
You are correct, but for different reasons. Fighting is a way of policing this type of conduct because a cheap shot artist knows that he is going to get a visit from a team's enforcer.
Detroit fans will remember Claude Lemieux's cheap shot on Chris Draper. The ability to fight did not make Lemieux want to fight Draper instead of cheap shot him. Cheap shots often happen more in the context of a game. But what fighting did is guarantee that Lemieux would receive retribution for his cheap shot.
The fear of a Donal Brashear, Derrek Boogard or other good enforcer does alter some behavior but cannot stop all of it. However, the cheap shot artist will eventually be called to task by the enforcer and may think twice next time. Not a perfect system, but far better than the refs trying to control things with a so called zero tolerance.
