Since we're talking (again) about it, was gibbons actually hurt for OSU? Do we know if this was when the AD/Hoke knew something was amiss?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I wasn't there so I certainly||
I wasn't there so I certainly don't know what happened. But I'd like to start a discussion point from a different analogy so I replied to get this a little higher in the thread.
I see similarities to the NCAA vs. Penn State. Major differences here are that the evidence was overwhelming in that case, and more importantly there were concurrant criminal proceedings. Of course this is not a perfect analogy, but it raises a question-
Here's my point: Did you (MgoBloggers) think then, and do you think now, that an organizational body that has noting to do with the criminal justice system (NCAA/OSCR) that does not have investigational power, should be able to dole out punishments for criminal (felony) actions?
I don't have the right answer to this. I was so angry at PSU for turning a blind eye that I wanted to see them punished, but leveling the punishment that the NCAA did for non-football related felonies was inconsistent with their previous punishments.
In this case now, we know there will be no criminal charges, but yet someone has leaked this and we all know are thinking that Gibbons is guilty of commiting this act (WHICH IS A FELONY).
As I've stated in other threads, I'm more comfortable with organizations within the criminal justice system investigating and punishing criminal acts. Thoughts?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||A prison sentance it is not,||
A prison sentance it is not, but expelling someone from a University is quite a large punishment for a body that has no investigative power and is acting completely outside of the criminal justice system.
While we all agree that further steps should be taken to punish (& therefore reduce the incident) of sexual assult, this policy (to me) has multiple large flaws.
This is a difficult, delicate situation where we are trying to balance victim's rights vs. accused rights.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Mods I suggest this is worthy||
Mods I suggest this is worthy of bump. Just fantastic (informative too)
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Good points. My larger point||
Good points. My larger point is that regardless of intention, the consequences of this governing body's decision are very real and have profound effect (agreed that Gibbons already graduating is not the point here).
The problem with your analogy is that the person in question is not being reprimanded (or 'administrative action' or any other euphemism) for cheating on a test. The person is being reprimanded for what is in fact a very significant crime. So punishing someone for a criminal act without them being charged as such strikes me as quite odd.
I've tried for the most part to post about this policy in general terms and not specifically about this case, but I would add that in a case such as this where the person in question is a well known member of the student body, this person is now publically known as guilty of improper sexual conduct/assult (even if this is not the intended effect, are we to think anything else?) Phrased another way, I would argue that most people here, regardless of how they felt before yesterday, now are more likely to believe that Gibbons did perpetrate this act. This happened without criminal due process (although I agree he was given administrative due process in this case).
Bottom Line (for me)- I think something this profound and significant I would prefer to have handled in the court as opposed to a body completely outside of the criminal justice system, but I am open to counter-argument
|5 weeks 5 days ago||A good explanation, but I||
A good explanation, but I would argue that expelling them from school is quite a significant punishment in itself. The punished will have quite a difficult time explaining to potential employers why they transfered schools, especially like someone in this situation who is likely only a few credits from graduation.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I suppose I don't understand||
I suppose I don't understand the policy. A schools' non-investagory body can, in the absence of criminal or civil charges, irreporably punish someone accused of a crime, including when the alleged victim does not pursue action. This again is done completely outside of the crinal justice or legal system. And you have a weaker standard of guilt than what has been used for hundreds of years to determine innocence or guilt? Am I describing this wrong?
To me this seems like this has the potential to have problems. BIG problems. False accusations are of course the risk that comes to mind. I AM NOT SAYING OR ARGUING THAT HAPPENED IN THIS CASE, but am trying to get clarification (not a lawyer) on a policy which does not make sense given my understanding.

Well the reason that he is going to have a much longer recovery is because he is having a meniscal repair, not meniscectomy (removal of part of this). The goal is that this knee will function more like his "normal" pre-injury knee. This of course isn't a guarentee but the quicker recovery would be to just cut out the damaged portion. If this was done though he knee would very much never be the same.
Your larger point though may be true that missing what is basically 2 consecutive seasons and sustaining previous injuries to both knees may derail his superstar stautus/career. This is terrible for him, and for the NBA, becuase I think the Bulls with a healthy Rose could give Miami real competition. Now between this injury and rumors of the Heat breaking up, we may never know.

As others have correctly noted, he is more of a moderate republican & may not want to have to deal with fights on both sides.

But we're still watching. A lot. You know why? Cause its fun to watch these teams, even if the top talent isn't quite there. Same thing would happen for football
|23 weeks 4 days ago||I actually strongly agree and||
I actually strongly agree and have been saying this for a long time. If a system more similar to hockey and baseball were to be set up, it would fix MANY problems:
-Athletes that had not interest in being students would not have to be.
-the NFL & NBA (through collective barganing because of fear of veteran players losing jobs to 18 year old rookies) wouldn't have to take these young athletes on before they felt ready
-colleges (and subsequently the NCAA) would not have to treat their product as THE minor league for NFL & NBA
There should be a real NFL minor league and NBA minor league which could (but doesn't have to be) administered by the respective league.
If the NCAA is a minor league (players paid significantly more than a scholorship & other benifits they recieve as athletes) it will ruin the product. Ironically, I doubt that people would want to see this new minor league even if some of the "5-star" types went there. There is something about this amatuer competition with people emotionally tied to their alma mater that is truly special. Even if some of the top players leave, the product will still be very entertaining (anybody stopped watching NCAA basketball once all the great players because 1-and-dones?)

Yeah that list (while a great idea & helpful at the time), is now dated and inaccurate. It'd be great if we can use this as a more updated (for this season) catch-all for U-M bars. I live in Philly (and the bar here changed...and then changed back since the sticky) 2 locations:
Fox & Hound (yes same as Dallas) @ 15th & Spruce

But that's the closest I can get. Given the levels of success...it'd have to be Liverpool or Man U yes? & Liverpool was dominant in the 70's & 80's, good not great in the late 90's early 2000's, and now not that good but treading up. Their local rivals consider them their biggest rival, but Liverpool considers the other successful team (Man U) their bigger rival...if you can do better please let me know (I really do hate red)...but right now I got Liverpool=U-M

Am I the only person in the world who thought Godfather 3 (or III, whatever) was good? I certainly agree that it wasn't as good as the preceeding two, but people act like it was the worst movie ever made. Admittedly the incest stuff was weird, but it eventually added to the plot and set up the climax of the story. I thought if it was an indepedent movie not judged based off the first 2 it was good, enjoyable, a new take on a Greek tragedy (as the whole trilogy was).
Anybody else not hate the 3rd Godfather?

I know that we have all assumed for awhile (quite long when you consider he is still in a high school class right now!) that Shane Morris is THE FUTURE of the QB position in Ann Arbor. Although I very much hope that is the case the more I see & read about Speight makes it seem as though he could really push Morris or maybe...MAYBE...compete to take the starting job.

|42 weeks 5 days ago||Injection||
I also work in ortho and respectfully disagree with the above poster. I've seen over half of people have full resolution with an injection. I do agree that meds (NSAIDs) aren't useful here. An injection to the area could also be a quick fix and if it doesn't work surgery remains an option.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||There is some good advice||
There is some good advice above, but let me break it down.
-your hydrocodone dose is either 5, 7.5, or 10mg. It would be safe to take another 3 hours apart one time. The issue with taking too much of this medication would be respiratory depression (it'd be helpful if you had someone with you to ensure your breathing does not become labored or slow). It can also cause other side effects like itching and nausea (as well as constipation), but those aren't neccessarily dangerous
-the 500 you refer to is the Tylenol (acetaminophen). This is VERY IMPORTANT. Do NOT take more than 8 tabs (4000mg/4g) in one 24 hour period. You could go into liver failure. Also, obviously do not drink alcohol
If you are taking the medicine as prescribed after surgery and still in significant pain, a change of medicine could be in order. Oxycodone (when mixed with tylenol is known as percocet) is a stronger medicine.
EDIT: After reading the above, looks like all info was at one point or another covered, but I wanted to get some advice out and this info seemed to be spread across multiple posts.

|45 weeks 11 hours ago||Thank you for bringing this||
Thank you for bringing this up. I didn't know much about him from a professional basketball player standpoint (my interest in the NBA declined with the Pistons performance). It is an interesting thought experiment (we will for obvious reasons never know) if he would have been re-signed WITHOUT coming out, but now will be interesting to see if he does get picked up by a team. It looks like he has bounced around teams and as Butterfield points out, has been minimally effective recently. This is about when teams just stop signing guys like this.
But let's throw this out there just for fun on an off-season Monday: Any chance a team would want to add him BECAUSE he came out? Be seen as super tolerant/politically-correct-to-the-max? Sounds odd but stranger things have happened. Thoughts?
PS My idealistic semi-political statement is that I wish he would signed or not signed based ONLY on his past and potential basketball production...and maybe that will be the case.

^^^This^^^ is a very good point. When this was happening the NJ Governor (you may remember him from Hurrican Sandy & SNL & his Hoke-likeness) was proposing a massive overhaul & reorganization of the state universities of NJ (including adding & eliminating schools from Rutgers' system). This is not to say that the president shouldn't be cognizant of things that could be harmful to his university and its representatives*, but if your AD notifies you that there is a situation with the basketball coach and you are taking action to correct poor behavior, that should be enough. For the president himself to be throwing himself into an investigation amounts to micro-managing. We can certainly debate if the AD actually handled the situation appropriately, but from the president's standpoint you have to trust your AD to handle a situation like this within the athletic department.
*Since people are comparing this to the PSU scandal, I would hate for someone to have hidden behind any form of a "I'm too busy with something else to handle child molestation" argument.

The difference is displaced vs. non-displaced i.e. did the bone fragments move once they became seperate (broken, fractured, ouchy'd, whatever). A displaced fracture may need surgery to fixate it back to anatomical (normal) alignment. Someone may also need surgery when multiple bones are affected or when it affects the joint (like our dear RB here)

Of course that plays a point. Only a fool would doubt that there was huge amounts of negative recruiting during RichRod's entire tenure. I just got frustrated seeing very good linemen and defenders passed over by the coaching staff (especially when some were in the U-M backyard) to get, as Magnus was referring to, undersized speed ninjas. Speed takes you far, but only when the trenches have been taken care of.
PS we certainly don't need to rehash the QB situation while during RR era so I will leave this to a discussion of OL & D front 7 vs. speed/skill guys
