Is a New Jersey Net, just fyi. So the "fight" got a little easier.

Best record in baseball, just saying.

If you're not turned off by Southern twang in your hip-hop, check out Big K.R.I.T.'s Return of 4Eva, it's one of the better albums I've heard in a long time (reminds me of old Outkast). Also, download Kendrick Lamar's O.verly D.edicated, and The Kendrick Lamar EP if you like that. Also, J. Cole is fantastic, and if you don't have The Warm Up, The Come Up, or Friday Night Lights (not the TV show or movie), get those too.

I believe that by the end of this season, he will be a first round pick. With the tutelage of Mattison, who as a Baltimore native, I would label as fundamental if not to a fault (albeit in comparison to Rex Ryan), I see him being used in situations similar to Haloti Ngata in the Ravens defenses of the past three years. Martin is unbelievably strong, as we all know, and assuming he stays healthy will be able to display that in more ways than the past. He is also very quick, and surprisingly fast in space for a guy his size, and as Clarkiefromcanada mentioned, could come close to the 48 that Paea put up this year in the bench press at the combine (it is only 225 lbs, and with all due respect to humans, Hulk can lift that with his pinky). I see Mattison's coaching as a very big bonus in the eyes of scouts, and can only see that helping Martin, and any prospect coming out of Michigan after GERG's departure, and Mattison's subsequent hire.

In regard to the claim that he is "Big Baby without a J", I saw him hit a three pointer in one of their games (might have been Purdue) and his stroke looks pretty damn good for a guy his size. Not saying he has range out to 22 feet, but more that he is an 18 year old with plenty of time to hone his weaker points (which may not be as weak as people think, keep in mind that Ohio State doesn't exactly need him to do very much outside shooting). He's got a huge frame, and that alone will allow him to play in the league due to his low center of gravity. He also seems to have a knack for rebounding, which can make up for a small height difference in the post (e.g., Kevin Love).

I could be mistaken, but that seemed to be the case for each of the past 3 years (albeit with a good percentage of those threes coming from Manny, and being somewhat ill advised).

I'm with you on the doubting he graduates, however my thought process was leaning more towards academic inability...

I do believe I can help with this. Before coming to Michigan this year, my family had season tickets to the Ravens games every year. We were seated in section 501 which is located in the upper deck. It is in no way whatsoever a bad place to be, and your view of the field is probably better than that in the lower decks. My seats were toward the front of the upper deck, and I would recommend going for those, however I'm sure it is still fine further up. The stadium is fantastic, and barring an unforeseen blowout by the opposing team, the energy in the stadium should be second to none.

I much prefer 16 than where Andy Katz had us at 9 at one point. 16 is a comfortable contending position, and I wouldn't say that we have a target on our backs at this point.

I lived just a few blocks away from Pimlico before coming to U of M this fall.
|5 years 45 weeks ago||Fucking a. Thank you.||
Fucking a. Thank you. People act like The Wire is the only thing that goes on in Baltimore. Don't get me wrong, I love The Wire more than most, but I grew up in Baltimore city, and it is my favorite place in the world. If you want to write it off as a cesspool of sorts, then fine, that's your opinion. But there is so much more to the city than the Inner Harbor which is actually just an overpriced tourist attraction. Yes, we have crime and drugs, and probably more than most other cities. But there is a hard working class, and so many people making an honest living who are being thrown in the same breath as the drug dealers because Baltimore's perception is only based off of pop culture depictions.

Baltimore is the best. But being honest, yes that stuff actually happens but in a concentrated area. Hopkins is a very nice place actually.
