"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

Dumb throwing decision, got bailed out. Not really playing all that well tonight but it's all tied so just settle down and win the last 3 innings

Dislike the bunt decision and really hate the lack of coming home on the fly ball. If you are going to play small ball you have to be aggresive on the base paths to go along with it.
Also if blanco is such a highly regarded pitcher why not redshirt her this year? Is that not a thing in softball?

I'm sure tons of Bangladeshi sweatshop laborers are on reddit. That makes a ton of sense that after working 12+ hour days with no breaks to support their families they first thing they do is go to an internet cafe to spend that money on updating reddit about their working conditions. I bet they have really great chat sessions with Qatari migrant workes talking about how much better a job is than no job.

'Well its better than no job' is probably the worst argument for supporting a company with shitty labor practices.

We should just use james earl jones for every voice over.
Can't hate on Xzibit though, great video.

Rudock is an average QB who will not lose or win you games. Hopefully the rest of the team can come out abover average. Team should probably win about 8 games, if Ruddock plays really well it could be 9 or 10 wins, if he plays poorly it will be like 6 games. Chances are we win about 8.

Hope they have a plan on how to make up 4 million a year. Only probably over 40 million in lost revenue.
|4 days 9 hours ago||This was supposed to be a||
This was supposed to be a rebuilding year for Maryland so getting to the championship game was a nice surprise but getting embarrassed is disappointing. They are bringing in 3 top 25 players next year though on offense so that should help.
|5 days 1 hour ago||Lol at mentioning how many||
Lol at mentioning how many teams there were including womens at all levels, clearly not relevant to my point. As far as I could tell there are a little over 30 schools with men's rowing supported at the varsity level.
You act like I am trying to diminish anything. I think it's great Michigan won, I think it's great Michigan is respected, I think it's great they have Olympians. I was just adding context to people who might not have realized it was a club championship rather than Michigan being the actuall best rowing team in the country, because they aren't even close to that. When teams win d2 championships people say they are the d2 national champions. So the title of this thread should be Michigan wins 8th club national championship. Word club makes all the difference.
|5 days 5 hours ago||Yes the lacrosee club||
Yes the lacrosee club championships were just club championships and not national championships, I think that is exactly what I said before and the that fact is proven by how much they have struggled in actual D1. And sure if you made Yale worse and Michigan better things would even out. But that's not the case now and Michigan isn't better. So instead of suggesting they are best college rowing team, which is what national championship implies, we can congratulate them on being the best club rowing team that does very well given a lack of resources.
So congrats to men's rowing on being the best club rowing team in the country for the last 8 years. That's an accomplishment to be proud of. They aren't actually national champions because there are 19 other teams better than them this year. Also being top 20 sounds great, but how many schools actually sponsor rowing?
|5 days 7 hours ago||I'm only diminishing their||
I'm only diminishing their accomplishments in relation to the guy who mentioned ucla basketball as a comparison. Club championships are great, they aren't national championships. Obviously being a top 20 team with no sholarships is great, they are still only 20th.
Plus the guys on the rowing team give the womens team shit, talking about how they only get funding because of title 9 and the guys deserve it more because they are more successful. Well funny story, they aren't more successful because they are in a lower league. So again, 8 club championships is great, it isn't 8 national championships.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Despite what men's rowing may||
Despite what men's rowing may tell you these aren't national champioships, they are club championships. Lacrosse was a great club team too, moved up the real level and can't can't even make the postseason. Mens rowing probably wouldn't make top 8 most years at the highest level.
|5 days 15 hours ago||Calling it a national||
Calling it a national championship is a bit of stretch. That's like a AAA team in baseball winning the AAA playoffs and saying they are World Series champs. They are going for 8th straight club championship which is great but there are probably 8-12 boats better than them every year.

I'm talking about outside of btn coverage. What Michigan is doing on it's own.

Any radio links? Thanks in advance.
As a side not Michigan just has absolutely pathetic coverage of non-revenue sports. I can listen to every Maryland baseball game on a student radio network, Indiana baseball had a legit radio station covering it. Take some of the money the ad has and create a student radio station that broadcasts non revenue sports, how hard is that?
|1 week 2 days ago||If you sell gen ed right it||
If you sell gen ed right it can be a great way to get an interdisciplinary course of study. I actually did it because major requirements were annoying. Focused on causes of Urban poverty, over 300 level courses in pol sci, sociology, Econ, philosophy, and history and also got credit while interning for the washtenaw county public defenders office and at a local prison. Did AmeriCorps after school and now work in dc on criminal justice reform. Gen ed can be an easy way out or a great opportunity to study an issues from a diverse perspective. Depends on the person going in and how you sell it coming out.

Only way we play in the tourney is to win the big ten automatic bid.

Steph curry would disagree with under armour not making basketball shoes. And ugly alternates? Have you seen ohio states crap? Alternates are signed off on by the school.

Stupid double post. RR recruited the same guys he did at wvu. It didn't work out at Michigan.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||So 2, maqybe 3 above average||
So 2, maqybe 3 above average guys if you count roundtree and zero game changing nfl talent. (Gallon was great but not against like MSU). I wouldn't point that out as some great success of RR.

Webb alos thought we led for Michael Jordon and that he was a long way away from a decision so what Webb thinks might matter more than what I think but it still doesn't mean much.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Don't be such a homer.||
Don't be such a homer. Maryland will be starting 4 Mcdonals all-americans next year witha fifth player who was projected early second round in the draft this year before coming back. Their lineup is going to be:
Melo Trimbe: Top 10 player in the Big last year as a freshman and Mcdonalds AA
Sulaimon: Former Mcdonalds AA, proved above average player in 3 years at Duke
Jake Layman: Has played as an undersized 4 for three years, shoots 40% from three and was projected early second round pick before coming back
Robert Carter: Transfer from Georgia Tech who averaged nearly a double double as a freshman, former Mcdonalds AA
Diamond Stone: Incoming recruit ranked top 5 in the class.
That is easily the favorite to win the league. Most talented team in the league with 4 of the players already proven legit NBA talents who will be pre-season top 5. Michigan will probably be pre-season top 20.

You can't trademark a fucking color. That is total shit that gets thrown around. Maybe addidas can't call the color "maize" which I don't believe either but you can't trademark an actual fucking color.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Under armour had faster||
Under armour had faster growth than nike in it's first decade of existence. Steph curry wears under armour basketball shoes, so yes they exist. Under armour is also starting to expand internationally as they are outfit providers for Tottenham in the British premier league. Buster posey wears under armour baseball gear. Your opinions are pathetic, based in no facts and add nothing to the discussion.

At some point people are going to accept that the switch from maize happened because of hdtv and not because off addidas. Oregons yellow has gotten much brighter as well.

Steph curry wears under armour shoes. I think it would be fine to play in them. Maryland is recruiting just fine as an Under Armour basketball school.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||It isn't happening. Mihcigan||
It isn't happening. Mihcigan state is 30 spots higher than us in rpi and is on the bubble. You have to get into the top 45 to feel anything close to comfort and we are currently at 69. Not even winning out the regular season is jumping us over 20 spots.
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||Stanford had the best qb in||
Stanford had the best qb in the country for 2 years and still lost more games in those 2 years than urban has lost at Ohio state. This is a player we wanted and got punked by ohio state for. Being in the top 5 for a bunch of guys from California is great. It doesn't mean shit if they don't come.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Not really. Like most||
Not really. Like most issues, strong denial gets you in more trouble than acknowledging and moving on. Just because some idiot on talk radio says the title should be stripped doesn't mean it was ever on the table as an actual punishment. Rodgers wasn't even fined for admitting to over inflating balls.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I'm not sure why this topic||
I'm not sure why this topic is so difficult for some people. In the grand scheme of things this doesn't really matter and doesn't invalidate a superbowl. However the Patriots almost certainly knowlingly 'cheated' and it is part of a pattern of behavior.
Once again that doesn't mean they won because of it, but it also happened. It wouldn't be a big deal if they just admitted it like Rodgers did and moved on.
