Ohh! I'm going to look now at some of the profiles of Michigan's women's tennis recruits. Scuse me a minute.

I thought this was a post about self abuse. I thought perhaps a new term had been coined about "fingering the lumber" or something. Sorry. Wild Turkey.

It's uncanny, but this is EXACTLY what THE KNOWLEDGE predicted as well.

This time of year is really annoying. It's like when you've got about a 12 hour drive, and there's still an hour left. It feels like you're almost done, but nope, you still have to sit there and wait it out. But what's worse is that unlike a car drive, the last stretch of college football offseason you have to listen to a whole parcel of douchebags making "predictions" about the upcoming season. "Phil Steele" sounds like a pornstar anyway. Who could possibly care what he says about Michigan?

Underneath the plaque is a quote that reads "Sean Springs fell down!"

I like the picture --- very well done. But I don't like the idea that he's "Michigan's Pat White." He's Denard fucking ballgame. Michigan's Denard.

You don't need to apologize for not thinking it's ok to steal money from a student's locker. My hunch is that few people, including those on this website, think it's ok. The point is that everyone makes mistakes, and this one incident isn't necessarily a deal breaker, particularly if the student exhibits otherwise good behavior etc.

Does anyone else think all of these preseason predictions and discussions from websites like CFN etc. are becoming increasingly moronic and insipid? This article reads like something from a high school paper.

What about that song by the Lo Fidelity Allstars -- I think it's called Battle Flag. That one can get you going a bit, although the uncensored version is a bit heavy on the f-bombs.

This isn't really funny at all.
I do think it's weird, though, that Ole Miss is about to sign Jeremiah Masoli because of a loophole in NCAA regulations. Despite his two arrests and the fact that he was kicked off the Oregon team, he can accept a scholarship at Ole Miss because they offer a graduate program (Masoli has his degree from Oregon) that Oregon doesn't have on the books. It really makes the SEC look like a bunch of whores. It's probably true at some level that the SEC is the best football conference in the country, but at what cost? They've made a mockery of academics and been the driving force behind the circus that college football has become. I would be embarrassed to be affiliated with Ole Miss after this.

Isn't it pretty much impossible to argue for the superiority of Tate over Denard without seeing how they do in fall practice? It's just great that there's competition now -- and I suppose also great that they both bring different packages, so it's hard to settle in on just one defensive scheme. I just hope one or the other doesn't become bitter if he's not the starter.

"Thanks for playing" is such a total burn.

Maybe we can write App as "appl." or something? Somehow seeing App reminds me of a time in my life when I was really super bummed about a thing that had previoiusly seemed unthinkable happening.

I'm going to use this as a pickup line next time I'm at the discotheque. Success is virtually guaranteed!

Why is this OT? It seems like nothing could be more relevant, or more "On Topic," as we say in the blogging community, to the ardent fan.
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Whoops! A quick check on the||
Whoops! A quick check on the Hawkeye official website says about Wienke that as of 2010 he's "Not listed on depth chart following spring practice." It seems sort of mean to phrase it so bluntly on the official team site.
|5 years 2 weeks ago||This isn't really Mallett||
This isn't really Mallett related, but I'll be curious to see what happens with John Wienke, the qb from a small school who signed with Michigan but then switched to Iowa when Lloyd retired. He was another one of those prototypical pro-type quarterbacks, but obviously without the hype and raw talent of Mallett.
|5 years 2 weeks ago||Count me as a big Lloyd Carr||
Count me as a big Lloyd Carr fan. I was unbelievably frustrated with him at times, particulary late in his career, but he carried himself with dignity and brought a sense of ethics to the college game that seems lacking today. One thing I can say about him -- if I had a son, I would feel good about sending him to play for Lloyd, because he seemed to privilege the welfare of his players over simply winning. He also understood that first and foremost, college football players are supposed to be students -- and that playing football is supposed to be fun. This is probably quixotic, but admirable nevertheless.

Is one side effect that you forget how to spell "address"?

Remove his two front teeth and Braylon Edwards would be the spitting image of Richie Havens. This point is connected to the OP because when I clicked on the Rivals link I saw Braylon's picture.
|5 years 5 weeks ago||I've become addicted to||
I've become addicted to Patrick Obrien's novels about Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin. There's a bunch of them. They were the source for the movie Master and Commander, with Russell Crowe a few years back. The first one is called Post Captain, and they go from there. Amazing reads. Very fun and entertaining. Can't put em down.

I like Alabama. The numbers on the helmets are cool. Also Nebraska.

This is sad news for obvious reasons. At the same time, though, I don't necessarily agree that the appropriate response is to flood the admissions office with angry denunciations. Unless the admissions people are just evil, they must have had at least defensible reasons for not admitting Dorsey, otherwise they wouldn't have dinged him -- particularly since this is a high profile case having to do with weighty people and issues.
