My friend's little brother ( and i say little only in age seeing as he was about 260 lbs) was a few years younger than us and a really good football player. Played D Line at an ACC school and then about 3 or so years in the NFL. He's been on a Nascar crew now for about 7or 8 years as a tire carrier. He worked for Dale Jr's team for a bit and now is onto another Nascar team. Its not uncommon for ex college athletes to be on the pit crews. I know the bigger Nascar teams have athletic trainers that work with the pit crew members full time. They did a peice about this on either Real Sports or the 60 Minutes Sports that runs on Showtime. Some of the pit crew members can make 6 figures, at least in Nascar. Not sure about Indy league.

This is a bit of a flawed argument. Its an apparel contract, not an equipment contract. No the baseball and softball teams won't have to use Nike bats. Ohio State, a Nike school, uses Wilson footballs. Not Nike footballs. So i don't think you have to worry about our lacrosse team being at a disadvantage because they would have to use some Nike stick if they start making those. And the golf team will be able to use whatever clubs they want.

I could not agree with this any more. I applaud WD's devotion to the program, but man he needs to take a week off to go get drunk and embarass himself in front of women. (As long as he's 21 of course). Maybe we could make an Eharmony profile for him.

I imagine this is what the atmosphere was like at that Baltimore Orioles game that had no attendance a few weeks back. Although there might be more fans there than a Tampa Bay Rays game.

But could they beat the Winklevoss's?

I didn't read all 4 pages of responses so i apologize if someone already suggested it, but i always liked Ben Mezrich's books: Ugly Americans, Rigged, Bringing Down the House etc. They are non-fiction but sort of seem like fiction given some of the subjects. Plus i was a finance major and a lot of his books deal with money/numbers. Or maybe check out some biographies about people you find interesting.

Now i don't know how much to read into it, but i've noticed something over the last few years. Everytime i see one of our players is prepping for a draft (basketball or football) it seems like they rarely are wearing Adidas gear. Especially shoes. I remember seeing Taylor Lewan working out and he was wearing Nikes. Nik was wearing Nikes. GR3 i think was wearing Nike. And Mitch was wearing some other shoes i couldn't tell. I'd assume these are kids that have tons of Adidas shoes from their time as a Michigan athlete, yet they all choose to get different shoes once they start training outside the Adidas sponsored UM teams. Maybe that means something.

I'd definitely put him in the top 5. With some of the J Lindeberg guys and Ryo Ishikawa.

Not bad for the guy that was named as "The Most Overrated Golfer on Tour" by an anonymous survey of players earlier in the week. Thats one way to stick it to the haters.

Or LSU, or Texas A&M, or VIrginia Tech, or Illinois, Washington or Minnesota, or Oregon State, or Arkansas. You know, all those basketball powers.

well 2015 wasn't a stellar recruiting year for the basketball team thats for sure. How the fuck does LSU have a top 5 or 10 class in basketball? They have like 3 big time recruits and i thought i saw on EspnU that they had another top recruit that decommited from them? How the hell are they pulling that off?

The #5 player in the nation that committed to them earilier. So i guess the answer is at least one other elite player other than Brown

I think he's referring to them getting rid of Cuonzo Martin, who is now the coach at Cal and has since recruited the #1 and #5 players in the country according to Scout.

Haha, check out the dude peaking in the windows at the Funchess house. Hilarious
|4 weeks 22 min ago||Haha, of course. Michigan||
Haha, of course. Michigan player gets drafted right when they are switching over networks so he gets very little coverage.

That was a really odd tweet. And if that ends up costing us a big time recruit then i'd be pretty pissed.

He wanted to decide in time so he can get nice seats for the Derby tomorrow.

I think its based on a bit more than just that. Sam not being nearly as confident. And now all of a sudden he is deciding tonight after all this UK momentum the last 24 hours. Oh well fuck it. Can't say i'm surprised.

Yeah i would assume that we are meeting with each of the "Big 3" (Adidas, Nike and UA) since the apparel deal is almost up. We're going into free agency so maybe Hackett wants to take all his Official visits and be wined and dined. Does Bike still exist? How hilarious would it be to see the coaching staff decked out in those awful Bike shorts that coaches in the 70s and 80s used to wear.

Joke or not, Cardale is really putting all that school playing to great work with that beautiful show of grammar in that tweet. "my time here has CAME to an end"

Super nice and intelligent kid. I take it he wouldn't have lasted til the Lions 2nd round pick since they had him in the green room for the draft?

Anyone watching hockey inbetween picks? The Rangers just gave up the game winner to the Caps with like 0.5 seconds left. The Garden was absolutely silent.

I think this is a pretty easy one. You take Brown. 1 player can affect the outcome of a basketball teams success way more than 1 player can in football (outside of dynamic quarterback maybe). If Gary was a quarterback, then it might be a more difficult question.

If Gary was at Michigan for 5 years then theres a good chance he didn't live up to that #1 player in the nation hype.

This is played on SiriusXM inscessantly also. And apparently there is a Cars 4 Kids also that claims to be the original. Perhaps they will fight to the death for the right to use the C or the K.

What is ESPN/ABC's obsession with Fall Out Boy. First it was the Light it Up song and then the Centuries song. I swear to god if they use that Uma Thurman song this season i'll break my fucking tv. Fuck fall out boy.
