Sixteen in the clip and one in the hole...
R.I.P. Nate Dogg. Gone too soon. Now I have to listen to Ryan Lewis do what is, in my mind, a budget imitation of Nate Dogg's soulful hooks. I mean, come on- "Ain't No Fun"? "The Next Episode"? Sheeeeeit. He wrote the blueprint on being the dude who only sings hooks.

They've got 'em in Chicago. There's at least one downtown in the Loop on Wells Street. If you're ever in the Windy City, you can get your fix.

True. But ahh...poor Lady Stark. I wanted her to see her daughters alive again. Damn.

Dude, I really hope you show up again soon and do some murderin' of Arya's foes. Please.

Also: If you kill the good guys, it makes the show/whatthefuckever not worth watching. There's hardly any Starks left. (I count Jon Snow, I don't count Theon).GOD. So angry. Also, seriously: FUCK the Lannisters.

JESUS CHRIST. I am so glad the last act of Lady Stark was slitting that woman's throat. GODDAMMIT. This is highly distressing.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, it's actually a||
Yes, it's actually a provision included in the collective bargaining agreements in the NBA and NFL. The reason, essentially, that Clarett lost his suit against the NFL was because the court said that those rights were bargained-for between the union and the league(s) and therefore were not a unilateral provision imposed by the leagues. Therefore, the CBA(s) trumped Clarett's interests. (Or something like that).

This is outstanding. I guffawed aloud at the pre-weight loss Jonah Hill caption. Fantastic work.

Am I late to the party? I'm here for the gang bang. Err, pos bang.

Because Jones was 6'6, projected as a WR, and ran a 40 that was in the 4.3's at 230 lbs. Workout monster, obviously.

You are not just "a" tree. By virtue of having the aforementioned face, and posting on MGoBlog, you are "the greatest" tree. Of all time. Ever.

BILG- I remember you from the Haloscan days. Hang in there. It was all gravy.
Oh, fuck it. I'm EMO as hell myself and can't sleep either. God fucking dammit.

Jamal Crawford? Wasn't he number 6 or 8 or so in 2000?

Wow. He looks like he could squat a school bus.

And the fact that Lou Bullock taking money (after there were pictures of Ed Martin posted in the locker room sayin "DO NOT ASSOCIATE WITH THIS MAN") kept U of M within the statute of limitations ("SOL") when the NCAA came knocking. Put bluntly, the sins of Webber would've not gotten U of M in trouble b/c they occurred too far in the past when the NCAA found out, but Bullock's actions started the SOL clock running again.

Phenomenal. I still wonder how he got back from P.R. when Amaker left him there. I kind of wish it was via some sort of 50 foot boat filled with semi-sketchy characters and women in bikinis.
I'm sure Avery Queen does as well.

Wow. Purchased. Thank you.

Goodnight, sweet prince. Into the dark night of the real world/cruel reality of the NFL you go. I kind of get the "sending kid off to college" feeling from above, and I'm not even a parent.
I don't know if there is a more beloved Wolverine of the last 20 years, at least not to me. Everything we could ever ask in what a leader and representative of Michigan should be, and even more. Goddammit, I'm going to miss him.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||It started when Moeller went||
It started when Moeller went there (to U of I), they fired him after only 3 seasons, he came back to Ann Arbor, and the next season, Bo hung 70 on them to teach them a lesson. That started it. Basketball, and, specifically, 1989, solidified it. They have no real natural rivals. They also hate Kelvin Sampson and Bruce Pearl, among others. And have a pseudo-rivalry with Northwestern. It's kind of sad, really.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, I remember the Chris||
Yeah, I remember the Chris Street thing, and how sad it was at the time, but I'd kind of forgotten about it. That piece was excellent. I actually would've watched more on that story- it was really touching to see his parents, especially. You also just couldn't help but feel for them; they were (and still are) obviously so, so proud of him.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Same re Bulls fan, and||
Same re Bulls fan, and comparison to DRose being wrong. Also, the idea that DRose is 6'4 is incorrect. He is usually listed at 6'3, but he's probably 6'2. He's got a thicker frame/broader shoulders than Trey/CP3.

Once, Dr. Steve Brule went to a club for bears. He had a pretty good time.

Sunk Cost. They need to re-evaluate his value to the team; sounds like this "we don't want to admit we were wrong" bullshit is ridiculous. I'm not a Lions fan; this would incense me if I were, on multiple fronts. I'd be mad at the player and the team. Trade him for a dollar, cut him, whatever- just cut ties.

I just laughed out loud for a full minute at this comment. I wish I weren't too lazy to figure out how to insert some sort of congratulatory GIF.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Look, I'm a civil litigator,||
Civil litigator; wholeheartedly agree. I don't think the NCAA did anything egregious, and I kept saying "so what?" to myself. Don't get me wrong: I really dislike the NCAA. That being said, it's a private association; essentially, it's a trade association (nonprofit). I also think that the other attorneys in the room should have stopped the deposition if the questions were as "irrelevant" as what is being claimed. They didn't did they? He answered, didn't he? The investigator apparently left the room; that means Shapiro's attorney/who was also on the NCAA payroll was almost certainly the one posing questions. No one- no one- would ever have let the investigator, a non-attorney not representing a party to the litigation, ask a question or say anything at all out loud, frankly. Also, w/r/t the attorney for Shapiro/the NCAA: Is there a direct conflict of interest? I don't think so, not legally; the NCAA's beef is with Miami, and not in the courts; it is a proceeding in the NCAA's own, private system. Shapiro's beef at this point is also with Miami. Sounds like they should be on the same team to me. And again- if it was so irrelevant, where the hell were the attorneys for the creditors? I assume they were present and allowed the line of questioning to continue.
The NCAA doesn't have teeth, so when it has the opportunity to acquire them- i.e., when there's an actual legal proceeding involved- the NCAA does all it can to take advantage of it. Not just in this instance; in every instance. Think about Webber/Ed Martin case, for example.
Now, the issue I think is that the NCAA isn't just a "party" to the litigation; it's also judge and jury. I get why that rubs people the wrong way, and CRex has a good point above. That being said, I don't understand why they can't use UNDER OATH TESTIMONY- better than any other evidence they're ever going to get- to prove their case. The NCAA isn't the federal judiciary. Or any sort of judiciary.
The NCAA's power to do these things could ultimately be challenged in court, and I could see how they'd lose. But until then, unless there's an NCAA bylaw that was violated (other than bad PR), I honestly don't think there is any NCAA procedural authority (because, again, this isn't in court; this is in the NCAA's private quasi-budget-not-really-at-all-a-judiciary-more-like-a-normally-impotent-police-force) barring the NCAA from using this evidence. If anyone should have a beef with it, it could be Miami, because I guess they'd say they didn't get the opportunity to cross-examine the guy. But, again, there's no expectation of due process in the NCAA system, is there? Is it codified that Miami gets to "cross-examine" or also question any witnesses? I kind of doubt it. As such, tough shit, Miami. So if I'm the NCAA, I use every damn piece of the evidence. Don't like the rules, member institutions? Change them.
