Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
Misopogon's Decimated Defense pieces on espn.com

I hate to bring this up, because no doubt it has been discussed more than once, but I wasn't aware of it: Is DD in danger of not qualifying for admission? How would anyone know that?
According to Rivals, he has a very slim chance of qualifying and will most likely play at a Kansas JUCO.
Didn't a mod on Rivals say that the notion that Dorsey wouldn't make it was based on old news? W/out getting too much into premium content, how new is the "report" that Dorsey likely won't qualify?
The last update on him did not have any new information. I don't know where they're getting their info...maybe a magic 8 ball. I'm just passing along the Rivals take on the situation.
Hopefully they don't know what they're talking about.
Assuming the rumor has no known basis in reality. I mean, a lot of casual fans read ESPN and nothing else -- they all think he's in danger of not qualifying now...
for the story. Both sites concede that he needs work to get qualified. One site, Rivals, is just much more pessimistic about it than the other. But he does appear to have work to do.
I asked my Magic 8 Ball if Dorsey would be at U-M in the fall, but the reply was obscured by a lot of litlle bubbles.
So I considered that a 'Reply Hazy,' and when I asked again later, the response was 'Without a Doubt.'
There is absolutely no substance to the Rivals (excuse me, TOS) report, and Scout can confirm 100% that Dorsey either (a) will qualify, or (b) will not qualify this year.
(I wish I was joking)
could be wrong, but I've been under the impression that his internet karma is solid too.
He works hard. Most of the college bloggers they have on their web site do
not the first time he's linked the decimated defense series when talking about Michigan either
Rittenberg tries really hard to get it right and not just pander to specific fanbases.
I appreciate how much research he puts into his material. So much of the analysis you see on the main page is based on little more than highlight reels. Rittenberg seems to pull a lot from various blogs throughout the big ten, citing experts on specific teams he is discussing.
Hopefully some of the mouthbreathing ESPN readers/commenters will take the time to READ Misopogon's diaries.
ESPN comments are about as level-headed and well-reasoned as Youtube comments. I sincerely doubt they'll read those excellent diaries, and if they do, I doubt they'd understand it.
I don't get the negs. To whomever negged him, have you read the ESPN comments lately?
I guess some people here comment on the ESPN boards. Why they would do that, I have no idea...
a simple paraphrasing of Misopogon's thesis. You can get paid at ESPN for doing just this?
ESPN comments are oh-so-terrible. They make me want to reach through the interwebs and smack them.
so pissed off reading those. I can feel my blood pressure rising when I do.
The level of stupidity you read at ESPN is absolutely astonishing. It makes you realize that all of those people you meet in life who seem relatively normal and functional in their jobs may very well be some of the most close-minded, idiotic humans on the face of the earth. Plus, they don't even know anything useful about the sports they try to comment on.
Your first paragraph, I agree with.
As for the 2009 kicking game, well, the kicking game directly led to Michigan losing two games (Mesko's brainfart against MSU provided 3 points which got Sparty to OT, Olesnavage's missed XP led to Michigan's failed 2 point conversion v. Purdue and the ultimate 2 point loss).
So does this mean one of you is Rittenberg? Out with it.
For like 10 secs, I just cry about how awful they are...thank goodness we have this site. As for Misopogon - cheers to the work, it deserves all the praise it gets.
And Dorsey, let's do it buddy!
All of the negative ones reflected the clear fact that they did not read the links to Mispogon's article. His post has zero to do with opinion, it is fact. If you disagree then you disagree with fact. Therefore you are stupid.
