stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
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?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.

Awful. I hope he will be ok.

Wisconsin has announced that he has been "taken to the hospital" with head injuries, which may or may not include admission to the hospital. Apparently he was attacked by five guys.

The real question is how could it attack his head? Heart, colon, and arteries all seem within reason.
I usually have stomach issues from all that greasy food after Five Guys...
just horrible. I hope the kid is ok.
-on a lighter note, I'm sure 5 guys was the minimum it would take to bring him down in a fight.
You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is never get involved in a land war in Asia - but only slightly less well-known is this: Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

I hope Montee has a speedy recovery, and that the perpetrators face the punishment they deserve

This can only be the work of the Angry Iowa RB Hating God as the AIRBHG has turned its wrath on RBs across the entire Big Ten this offseason:
Fitz Toussaint - Michigan RB charged with DUI
Jordan Hall - OSU RB cut foot and out at least 10 weeks
Ralph Bolden - Purdue RB arrested for public intoxication after forcibly kissing a woman at a bar against her will
Silas Redd - PSU RB transfer to USC
Brionte Dunn - OSU RB charged with 2 misdemeanors and caught with someone else's marijuana
Montee Ball - Wisconsin RB attacked in unprovoked assault
Not to mention the extensive damage it has wrought on Iowa this offseason (Marcus Coker and Mikail McCall transfers, Jordan Canzeri torn ACL, Greg Garmon 2 misdemeanor charges for marijuana possession, & the De'Andre Johnson saga)
Nebraska better hide Rex Burkhead in a safe place.
So AIRBHG is now ABTRBHG?
How can it be stopped.
sacrifice Eddie George
Sacrifice a mascot at his altar.
Silas Redd transfered to escape the wrath that the AIRBHG on the rest of the Big Ten. Angry about his preys new found freedom, AIRBHG decided to strike on the highest profile RB in the league.
In all seriousness though, I hope Montee Ball a speedy recovery and to be fully health by the time the season starts.
The Michigan Difference. Oh yea, it is real.
I bet the five attackers were wearing ski masks and MSU jerseys.
Hopefully the injuries are minor.

How'd Gholston manage to make it to Wisconsin...?
fastest slowest way from Ludington to Manitowoc
And as soon as one gets to Manitowoc, he gets the hell out of there.
It ain't easy being cheesy
I've been on that car ferry (Lord, I almost spelled it "fairy" without looking back) before. Maybe none too random for you Michiganders but as an Iowan I never thought I'd see that thing again.
You got a problem with The Badger ? Heck of a ship breh!
"What? We do it in the game!"
Seriously though, that's pretty sad.

They were not wearing MSU jerseys... but I heard that Dantonio has just sent out 5 new scholarship offers.
I guess when MSU says they're recruiting nationally, they mean recruiting prisons nationally..
Practice makes perfect. Unless you're the Buckeyes. Then you have to cheat.
I think it's known as "recruiting federally."
In their defense, it was necessary roughness and they didn't even do it for 60 minutes.
Is wrong with people?
One thing I learned (not first hand) when going to college was to not mess with the football players. I'm sure there will be some payback, and it won't be pretty. But, hopefully cooler heads will prevail.
I did learn it first hand. My bathroom plumbing never recovered.

My roommate had the misfortune of learning this less and sustained head injuries. That being said, he asked for it.
I wonder what the circumstances were. Is this a wrong place wrong time type of thing or is it a Monte Ball was sleeping with some guys girlfriend type incident.

Police report linked by Bruce Feldman says Ball was walking outside and was jumped, unprovoked. He reports he doesn't know his attackers.
As stated in this thread already, WTF is wrong with people.
These attacks have been happening in Madison for awhile now. They seem to be random. Of course, they may have picked the wrong victim this time. I'm sure this will get the full attention of the police.

Don't they call him the wrecking ball or something? He needs to take a self-defense class from this guy:

We're not arrogant, we're just better.
Bielema says Ball has been released from the hospital. That's good news--sounds like this is not super-serious. Any time I hear "head injuries" I get nervous, but these must have been of the superficial variety.
Good news. Probably just took him to the hospital to cover their bases and make sure everything was alright.
Could still be serious enough to affect playing time... concussion or skull fracture... not necessarily serious enough to warrant admission to the hospital, but certainly could impact an athlete in a contact sport. Hopefully it was just a cut that needed stitches or a black eye.
Disclaimer: While I am a doctor, I have no inside knowledge of this specific situation. And yes, Mr. Rager, I am a full time physician that has time to comment on a blog... I will send you a PDF of my diploma.
This is sad. I hope Ball recovers fully and has a great season, except for the CCG when he faces us. Then I hope he fumbles 4 times. But other than that, I hope he's alright.
Right about now, I would rather do a root canal on a rabid possum during mating season than be a running back in the Big 10.

Glad to hear he's ok. What're the odds some Wiscy O-linemen wind up in "scuffles" in the coming months, I'd say roughly 5 of them
