Football Display Case
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
How about giving scholarships to bright poor inner city youth for non-atheltic reasons instead?
I went to Cass Tech in Detroit with plenty of bright poor inner city youth who weren't athletes and who would have loved to have attended Michigan, but couldn't afford to.
I think you need to chill, brah. Yes, this stuff should not happen, but there are hundreds of kids coming in and out of the football program every few years. Take a random sample of the same size from the general student body and I bet the crime levels would be about the same.
It's been established by research that athletes (particularly football players) commit crimes at a higher rate than non-athletes on college campuses.
Unless I'm missing the sarcasm, I think this was exactly the opposite conclusion for anyone that actually examined the SI article on the subject earlier this season. College football players averaged less arrests than the student body at large.
How dare he steal a video game?
Down in front!

Stop it with the whole "Ivy League kids compete for the love of the game and are TRUE student athletes" line. Yes, the Ivies do not hand out athletic scholarships and definitely view major college athletics in a different light than, say, the SEC, but it's not like they ignore sports completely. I know a couple of kids recruited by the Ivies for revenue (BBall/FBall) and non-revenue (everything else) sports, and while they were all good students, most of them would not have been admitted without sports. And in terms of financial aid, while the Ivies do not hand out athletic scholarships per se, most have a sliding scale for how much students within a certain fiscal bracket are expected to pay (the rest is subsidized from the endowment), and there are quite a few "need-based" scholarships available if they want you. I mean, Harvard and Columbia may not give a five-star DB a free ride, but they do "need" players and that so they'll find ways to admit them.
It is time that they put the student back in student athletes!
Note: there are scholarships and Programs outside of athletics for inner city kids like M-Stem
I'm not familiar with the new medical redshirt rules but that seems like a lot of action to try and get a redshirt for.
I was wondering about the same thing. In the player participation releases, he's listed as having appeared in the first five games. But his bio at mgoblue.com says he played in only four games. Maybe one of the participation releases is wrong?
I'm fairly certain that four games is the maximum for a medical redshirt in football (calculated based on 30 percent of the number games, with that number rounded up).
Maybe WMU doesn't count?
Marvin would probably best served seeking a transfer. he won't see the field given what we have coming in in 2012 and 2013...
I don't like Robinson's odds of remaining a member of the team. Hoke seems pretty stern on these sorts of things. Michigan is probably one of the few schools in the conference that would have sidelined a guy with Stonum's talent for an entire season.
Now were into character crimes on these charges.
Maybe there are extenuating circumstances here and the whole thing will be dropped by the authorities. Sure hope so.
"because character wins in life and character wins on the football field....." 1-11-11
So based on my cursory reading of the charges, this is either a misunderstanding between roommates or indiscretion by a 20-year-old. I'm sure it will be blown out of proportion for a bit (don't visit ESPN unless you want to see a bunch of scUM tags), then die down as people move on.
A video game? Wow. Not even like a video game system? I don't what I am more surprised about: (a) that someone would be dumb enough to put their football career in jeopardy over a single video game, or (b) that people spend the time investigating and prosecuting this kind of crime.
The roommate probably came back, found out his game was missing, and called police. Police took a report, then (insert facts here that I don't know about), and Robinson became the suspect. Then it's forwarded to the prosecutor who looks at the law, goes "hey this is a Home Invasion 2nd!" and there Marvin Robinson is in court. Doesn't take much to get here. It takes a lot to get out of it though.
Maybe this why he blew that coverage on the Riddick touchdown in the UTL game, his mind was elsewhere
but can't say I possessed greater wisdom at that age.
Hopefully he learns a stern lesson from this.
Was this really necessary though? I mean, look at what Stonum's had to deal with. Can't be much fun.
When I played college football out here in CA I did a TON of dumb shit at that age. Like stealing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle vintage TV tray from a frat house. Kids are kids, it's not like he was pulling a Justin feagan
