If he would adopt the underhand style and start shooting 80% from the line. He'd be so, so, so much more valuable.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Emailing compliance||
I love that idea, thousands of people emailing Ole Miss compliance letting them know that the emailer has evidence of a recruiting violation, and attaching the already-viral video of Tunsil admitting to taking money from a coach. Hilarious.

This might be kinda bad, but at least the satellite camp issue is solved, thank god.

This song works well (and in a pretty funny way, IMO) if you imagine the singer is an SEC coach worrying about Harbaugh stealing his recruits.
(sorry, not sure how to embed)

You can take his satellite camps, but don't even try and touch his Rutgers and his BTN profits.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||No Surprise||
The article just shows again what a d-bag Sharp is, something all of us here have known for a long time. And I got to read about Sharp without clicking on any of his articles.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||DOOL and Hallmark Movies||
In college I started watching Days of Our Lives, every day at 1pm. My roommates mocked me, until they also got addicted.
More recently, I would watch a Hallmark movie with my wife and mock them for being so predictable, telling her everything that was going to happen in the whole movie within the first five minutes. Then I realized that I was watching and mocking lots of Hallmark movies. Last week I said "you have any Hallmark movies recorded?"

I had no idea. Explains why I haven't seen him in anything in oh, about 10 years
|18 weeks 4 days ago||Extra Benefits?||
How does this not violate the NCAA extra benefits rules (to the extent that anyone even enforces those anymore) if these benefits are only available to football players? Didn't Kentucky have to make their basketball player resort open to some number of non-basketball players to ensure that they were only violating the spirit but not the letter of the extra benefits prohibition?
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Inferiority Complex||
I grew up a huge UM fan (but not an MSU hater), and went to UM as an undergrad in the 80's. I lost good friends from high school who went to MSU. I'd go visit them for a weekend, and all they wanted to talk about is how terrible UM is, how arrogant UM is, what a terrible coah Bo Schembechler was, etc. This would be without me bringing anything up, and I would try to say "whatever" and change the subject to fun college things, but it was really like an angry obsession. After a few times I gave up on the friendship, haven't talked to them since.
Notice on social media how MSU fans seems to be as concerned with ripping on Michigan as cheering on MSU. That is annoying even when UM is kicking their butts on a regular basis. But when they are winning? Unbearable.

EVERY time a team runs that crazy play at the end of a game, my son has to listen to me blathering on about how if only Ecker had pitched it to Breaston.....
|23 weeks 2 days ago||SOL -- Advisory Committee||
This is the part that tells you what you need to know -- same old Lions. All people who have never made a good football hire trying to figure out how to get it right this time, instead of relying on people who have gotten it right before. I'm not holding my breath.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Ouch||
Just reading this ruined my night. Can't even imagine what it would feel like to go through it. I sometimes try and empathize and think of how I would feel if this happened to my kid....and I can't even go there.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||I feel happy that Harbaugh||
I feel happy that Harbaugh allowed Jon Falk to secure the Brown Jug. But I feel sad that Falk, Harbaugh, and my kids are all going to die.

This book will bring pre-season excitement to a crecendo. Really can't wait to read it.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||So Cool||
That was one of the coolest, most positive things I've seen in a while. Thanks for posting.
|46 weeks 4 days ago||Paging Eric Cartman||
This looks like something that would be on South Park, a parody of modern America. If only that kid were overweight with a red shirt and blue hat with a yellow poof ball.
|46 weeks 5 days ago||That....||
was one of the most simultaneously appalling and hilarious videos I have ever seen. I could not stop laughing, and yet I hated myself for laughing.

Is that you?
|51 weeks 4 days ago||This....||
is what ticked me off most about this fight. Four to six years ago, it might have been an all-time classic. I swore I'd never pay to see two fighters past their prime (Floyd barely past his prime, Manny well past his prime), but.....I did. I hoped that the occasion would bring one last great fight out of both boxers. Alas.....
|51 weeks 5 days ago||Very Guilty Pleasures||
I feel like these guilty pleasures aren't quite guilty (i.e., embarrassing) enough. Here are the songs where I'm glad they come on the radio, I sing along to, but would be mortified if anyone saw/heard me:
Oldie: Mandy, by Barry Manilow
Current: Blank Space, by Taylor Swift

I'm glad they didn't get Brown. He is so good already that Beilein would have had a difficult time coaching him up.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Maximizing Talent||
What I love seeing is players maximizing their talent, when (regardless of their level of achievement) you can't see them able to play any better. When you see that, it's a testament to both the players' work ethic and attitude and to the coaches. I don't recall feeling that way about anyone when Amaker was coach, but Beilein has had a lot of guys in that category. And they range in achievement from the lower end (Bielfeldt) to the middle performers (Zach Novak and Jordan Morgan) to the high end performers (Trey Burke and Nik Stauskas). As a fan and as a coach, it is really a joy to see guys maxing out their abilities.

Talk about roid rage. God, I hate the Seahawks.

Might be best if Seattle just scores on the first play and leaves more time....geez....

For Big Ten media days when UM/Harbaugh get tons of attention while Dantonio steams.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||OSU making a statement||
It looks like OSU is going to make its best case to the Selection Committee that it deserves to be in the football playoff. This is going to be a LONG day.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||True, but....||
While this is true, both Red Dawns were awesome. I mean, Josh Peck in a co-starring role was pretty epic. Anyway, I also like WD's original point.....John U earned the right to rally the troops while waving a giant "M" banner.

Question: How many big embarrassments can one giant ego cause an athletic department in one year? Answer, apparently, is still to be determined.
