|4 years 10 weeks ago||I am currently a Junior in||
I am currently a Junior in the Sport Management program at Michigan. I agree wtih a lot of the comments posted above.... most SM majors believe/want the program in the B School. There may be more prestigious SM schools, such as UMass and Ohio, but if you're looking to stay in state, it's hard to go against the opportunity to work with the University of Michigan Athletic Department. On campus there are plenty of opportunities for field experience, and another benefit is that Detroit is just 45 min away. It's true that the field experience and networking are imperative in the search for a job.
It's pretty selective as far as admissions go...maybe not as selective as engineering or the B school persay, but it hold its own. Required courses include marketing, sales, public speaking, accouting, econ, finance, org behavior, etc...so yeah, pretty business-oriented. And to the person who said virtually all football players major in SM, I do not believe this is true. I know JB Fitz and David Molk do, probably a few others, but the application into the 2nd level of the program weeds most of them out.

Absolutely love this pick up. With the way they can get to the rack, it looks like Burke and Brundidge might be able to play at the 2 while Darius handles point with Hardaway at the wing and Smotz wing/forward, shaping up nicely. I guess this means no go for Stauskas and possibly Pangos.

You're helpless; you can't do anything to change the fact that what you busted your ass for as long as you can remember is gone.

Very interesting. If anyone's read Moneyball, the basic premise of the book is that Bily Beane crushes the age-old ideas of baseball scouting (based on a player's looks, potential, tools) because he was indeed scouted by those premises and failed as a baseball player. He instead purposefully distanced himself from any notions he may have conceived as a playerso that in his current position as GM he could make objective decisions. And he basically changed the game in doing so. I think this would be the best approach for any coach/manager who has played the game.

this is the best news since my foreshadowing dream that Michigan wins 10 games this year, whether he actually retires or not. I love almost nothing more than to see the Vikings BEING HIS BITCH and allowing their entire fate to be determined by the day-to-day whims of one man, a player no less. I couldn't be prouder of the way the Packers' brass handled Favre two years ago and ran their organization like any should be run: by the bosses. I think this never-ending drama is what the Vikings had coming to them.

|4 years 31 weeks ago||Crawford or Drew||
I'd be stoked if we ended up with Crawford or Drew and didn't give up the farm. Dunn is a guy I've never liked, if just because no team seems to want him for more than 2 years. He is a guy though that we could put in front of Cabrera, so he sees more pitches in the zone and maybe doesn't strike out 20000 times (otherwise, him, Ajax and Inge in the same lineup would strikeout too much for me to want to watch). Ultimately I'd prefer Guillen at DH, so he'll only make 2 trips to the DL instead of 4, but that's pending one of our other current options at 2B improves a lot. Some tiny bit of me still thinks Worth or Sizemore or Rhymes can be a Pedroia- type guy near the top.
In the order of pitchers you mention, I'd take Webb, Lilly, then Vasquez- any of these guys, and I wouldn't be cheap about it. Bonderman, I would be cheaper on. Sorry Bondo.

Our receivers coach in high school also coached a rocket team of ten/eleven year-olds. I don't know if they did no-huddle or whatnot, but they used the spread formation with 4-5 WR every play and they killed it. And they loved it. So, I think even at that age, if they win, then they're having fun.
But, I kind of do agree with Not a Blue Fan. The O-lineman could barely remember what the snapcount was; unless these kids are more advanced or more serious about the game, a no huddle would seem advanced for that age group.

A) how she dreaded the deadness of North Campus and Bursely and switched to South Quad before Welcome Week was done, and
B) a five-pagessay she wrote in English for which the main theme and most research was done on the proper term of the beverage that stupid midwesterners insist on calling "pop"
|4 years 34 weeks ago||Great breakdown||
I would have to contend with your sentiment that a team getting a string of first downs is not due to the team "getting hot." You state that previous first downs on a possession are irrelevant to the current set of downs (in other words, each set of downs is independent of other first downs on the current drive), but that your numbers suggest that as you get closer to the goalline, the probabiltiy of getting a first down increases. The better your field position is, the more likely you are to get a first down.
My response to this is simply that a team is more likely to achieve a first down when closer to the goalline because of the rhythm it has gained from previous first downs on the current drive. That is, your increased probablity of a first down is because most sets of downs that occur in that area of the field occur there because the team has most likely moved the ball there to begin with, and has established a rhythm.
I'm now questioning whether what I just said makes any sense. I also may have missed something in your entry explaining my point.

|4 years 35 weeks ago||I can't imagine||
making the decision between a $119M contract and a say $90 M contract. How do you even notice the difference? Once you get to a point where you have so much money, isn't there some threshold where more money no longer makes you happy and you just want to be content, love people and live life? The marginal utility of money just goes downhill.
At least, that's how it seems it would be to my regular civilian-eyes.
- if I were LeBron, I'd go to New York, since I would Lebron and LeBron is a showman. There are no brighter lights
- if I were Amare or Joe Johnson, I'd also go New York, given D'Antoni's style and the other star coming
- if I were DWade, I'd have a tough, tough choice between Miami and hometown Chicago
- if I were Bosh or Boozer, I'd try to join DWade or LeBron, wherever that would be
|4 years 35 weeks ago||Got a concussion my junior season||
I never thought anything of it in terms of my long-term health, but man I was messed up for the rest of the night. On the sidelines in the 4th quarter I forgot the game was still going on. It was like I was watching life happen through someone else's eyes. The scary thing is, before I realized what was happening, I went out on the hands team when the other team tried an onside kick.
Thinking back on that, it was ridiculously easy to get very seriously hurt, esp because in MS/HS, kids don't want to admit to being hurt, and a lot of guys loved to lead with their head. Scary stuff. If I have a son who plays I'm all for it, but if anything happens he'll be out in the blink of an eye

|4 years 35 weeks ago||starting team||
Goal- Rajon Rondo
Backs- Darrelle Revis, Ed Reed, Calvin Johnson, Charles Woodson
Mid- Chris Johnson, Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson
Forward- Lebron James, Steve Smith
Rondo combines instincts, hops, and huge hands in goal
Revis helps shut down any quick strikers or counter attacks. Ed Reed is the QB of the defense, helping everyone move together and keep on the same page. Calvin clears crosses and corners with the best of them. And Woodson is diverse enough to be able to shut down the best attacking mids and yet create offensively as an overlapping left back
Obviously, Chris Johnson and Iverson provide explosiveness to attack inside and out from the mid. Kobe is the captain of the team, a true leader. Nash creatively sets up Iverson and Johnson and chances are open all day.
Lebron has the body to shield defenders with his back to the goal and the vision to distribute to any of Johnson, Iverson, or Steve Smith cutting towards goal. And he can beat anyone on corners and crosses.
There you have it- the perfect US Soccer team, on paper.
