This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

|3 weeks 6 days ago||So, the guy who only has one pitch||
can't throw the split-finger fastball and can't control a slider or a curve, is gonna be the closer?
Well, my work prediction of AL champs and winners of 98 games just went out the window. Unless this has-been/never was regains all the pitches he had in 2011, this is going to be a long season.
Verlander might end up regretting his new contract.

I haven't received anything since.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I watched over 30 hours of live Masters play this||
week. This is the greatest sporting event I could ever attend. I have never been to Augusta, but I have tried and come very close(long story). It is by far the toughest ticket in sports and the greatest theater I have ever witnessed.
The Super Bowl, the World Series, The Stanley Cup, nothing compares to it. Now Michigan playing in a true National Championship game in football would be the only competition. Thank God the two would never conflict with each other.
Today was amazing, exciting, thrilling and everyhting in between. I am so happy for Adam Scott. I am the biggest Freddy Couples fan going and I was always a Greg Norman fan and was sick when he completely came unglued in 1996. I root for Phil e=whenever he tees it up and I have rooted for Adam Scott for years. He's a good guy, a very nicve respectful guy and has a hell of a golf swing. I hope he wins many more.

looked like a block. Call could have gone either way. I thought there were at least three times when we were trying to inbound the ball in the last few minutes when they simply HELD players and nothing was called.
As much as I disagree with Doug Gottlieb, he was right about one thing, the refs were incredibly inconsistent in the game. In the end it benefitted us! So Cool!
We're playin' for the NATIONAL CHAMIONSHIP!!! GO BLUE!!! baby.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||My brother told me on Tuesday that FGC||
would beat Georgetown. So I put it on my bracket. I'm perfect in the SOuth so far and only missed Colorado St. in the Midwest. But in the West I missed 5 games, including New Mexico and Wisconsin. I had Wisconsin going to the Elite Eight and NM going to the Sweet 16. My final four is still intact. I have 24 of 32 so far, but I am guaranteed to lose at least two this weekend. I'm in the 97.1% on ESPN's bracket.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||My money bracket is toast||
I had Wisco and Indiana in the finals. I was much more conservative in that one than in my online brackets. My Yahoo bracket is fairly swiss cheese as well.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Based the evidence at hand||
I think this team falls short against VCU. I am hoping we get to Elite 8, but I doubt. The youth and inexperience of this tream, and no inside scoring presence or defensive presence for that matter, says early exit for the Wolverines. I will watch and root and enjoy whatever success they have.
I see Indiana, MSU and OSU going farther. I think Miami may be the best team in the country. I don't know much about Louisville, but the heads at ESPN think they're winning it all.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||At least get to the Final Four.||
Being No 1 and a top ten team most of the season, the last two or three weeks has been very disappointing. About the only thing to make up for it, would be a run to the FInal Four. Like it was said earlier, I don't expect it. I'm being overly realistic, I think they struggle to get to the Sweet 16, but Final Four would make up for what they were unable to accomplish thus far.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Deppending on how they play in the BIG tourney||
probably a 3 seed in the NCAA tournament. Thes seoncd round is where I see them struggling. The pressure of getting to the Sweet 16 will be just like today. Plus they won't be at home so Robinson will most-likely struggle down the stretch as he has shown a propensity to disappear on the road.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Can't rebound and can't make FT in the clutch||
Geez, we had this game and let it slip away with no interior defense or rebounding and three different players missed free throws. I think the tournament will be really tough to get past the second round
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Winning out and getting to the elite 8 would be||
but neither are going to happen. This team is VERY talented, no doubt, but I have very little faith that they will beat State at home this weekend with Spring Break hitting (no home court advantage) and NO offense aside from Trey Burke dribbling and everyone else standing around.
I like the coach and the players, but there is no plan, no set plays, they just seem to make it all up as they go. Be honest, aside from Burke and a few from Hardaway, what real offense does this team have? How do you lose a 15-point lead on the worst team in the conference?
Honestly, my prediction is we won't beat State or Indiana, we'll get a #3 or 4 seed and get knocked out in the second round again or maybe get to the Sweet 16. THAT's IT. This team is talented, but very young and gamewise, very immature.
I know it sounds very negative and "hateful", but based on the last five games, do you REALLY think they have a chance against State or Indiana? We have no inside presence, which means no inside/outside game and every shot against a good team is contested. Play pressure defense one step beyond the 3-point line and beating Michigan isn't that hard.
This team needs at least another year of seasoning to be Final Four worthy. Problem is Burke and Hardawya may both be gone after this year, especially Burke.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Funny thing about these kind of lists||
Johnny Miller tops the most hated Golf Announcer list every year. He also tops the favorite Golf Announcer list every year. Stats are just that, a slice of the detail that you are trying to prove. You can make a valid argument about just about anything if you take the right slice of stats.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||If they truly blood-tested the entire NFL||
not just the one's they "suspect", the NFL would be in the same boat the Tour De France is in - no believes the results because evryone is cheating.
If the NFL did true random blood tests throughout the season, I bet 60-70% would fail to some degree. MIke Golic said it on Mike&Mike the other day, the only testing they do is at the end of training camp and everyone knows, it's coming, if you fail you're an idiot. His words.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||The kids fought hard, tough loss||
I thought the biggest problem besides the lack of interior defense, is that there is no inside-outside game. There were very few open shots and if Burke wasn't shooting in the second half, it seemed like no one else would. Robinson disappeared and Stauskas couldn't get a decent look all night. It just seems like when a game is tight, there is very little offensive flow. And every team seems to pressure our shooters all over the court now.
The team played hard and it's tough to win at Assembly Hall, but I think we definitely had a shot until the last two minutes. Gotta win on Tuesday. Go Blue!
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Rodriguez is a good guy and a good coach||
the problem is, he was a terrible fit in Ann Arbor. Congrats on a good season and good luck down the road.
And, if we ever meet up in Pasadena...we'll kick your ass. Have a nice day.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||As much as I love the winged helmet||
I want all football to go back to leather helmets. If they did, much of this human carnage and senseless tragedy would stop. There is not a player with a shred of common sense that would lead with his head if he wore a leather helmet with no facemask instead of the helmets today.
Today's helmets may very well protect the skull itself from a traumatic injury, but they are simply a sham to cover up the truth that the collisions and the sudden change of direction of the brain inside the skull are the main cause for the brain injuries that are debilitating today's current and former players.
The impact is tremendously violent, but the real damage is done when the head stops moving or changes direction, but the brain continues in its original path and slams against the inside of the skull, that's where the damage is done. NO HELMET ON THE PLANET CAN FIX THAT!
I love football, but this is truly sad and insane. How many great players have to be reduced to shadows of themselves or die before the truth is realized and acted upon?
|18 weeks 4 days ago||I cxould see Kelly going long before Urban goes to ND||
Urban didn't go to ND before because they won't relax the academic standards for the football program. Urban tried to get that deal and they said no. He's not stupid, he coached against Miles and Saban, he knows you can't compete aginst that kind of talent unless the Administration looks the other way when it comes to restrictions and high standards.
Heck, we're going to have a very tough time getting anywhere near Bama's stature because, it's win at all costs down there. Signing 4-6 more kids thanh everyone else and booting the lower end schollie kids that don't make the championship cut. Every year Saban signs 3-5 more kids than we do and has more 5-star and 4-stars than we do. Stars don't guarantee anything, but the potential for greatness is higher and the pct is on his side.
Plus the school will let him hire ANY assistant he wants at any $$$. It's tough to compete against that all the time.
Kelly is fighting for more $$ for assistants so he can get a better defense. That's what ND needs, they'll get the recruits.
Why do you think Brandon let Hoke get whoever he wanted on defense? You have to spend the $$$ to be able to compete today. The playing field has decidely tipped the SEC's way and it ain't leveling out any time soon.
|19 weeks 13 hours ago||I predict a defensive/conservative gameplan||
much like Tresselball. I see Bama winning 21-17 or 19-16. The highest score I can see is 27-13, and that's only if Bama jumps out to a 17-3 lead at halftime.
It won't be that great of a game to watch, I am actually hoping for a sloppy monsoon with six to 10 turnovers and 300 yards in penalties culminating a 9-0 win for Bama.
I hate both, but the only school I hate more than ND is Ohio so I have to root for Bama. Besides there is a really hot chick at work that is a huge Bama fan.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Simple||
1. Absolute MUST - Win the B1G title outright, no flukes or doubt. (undefeated in conference play.
2. A Rose Bowl victory over USC, Stanford, Oregon or some WORTHY PAC-12 opponent.
3. A strong showing in the National Championship game, playing well.
4. Winning the National Championship game in decisive fashion over a favored SEC opponent.
Addendum - beating all of Michigan's biggest rivals in the same season is part of the mix.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Roll Damn Tide||
I will NEVER root for ND UNLESS they are playing tosu. Of course then I root for a 3-3 tie with 20 turnovers and 300 yards in penalties.
I would love to see Bama win 87-0 and Brian Kelly to turn so purple that Barney is jealous.
Afterwards, Saban admits college bores him and he goes to the Bears. Brian Kelly goes to the Chargers and Chip Kelly goes to KC. Urban Meyer bolts for ND and Douchetonio goes to tosu, where he fails miserably
|19 weeks 5 days ago||10-2||
in the regular season, a re-match against OSU in the B1G Championship game and then Rose Bowl victory over Stanford for a glorious 12-2 record,
15-0 in 2014 National Champions! Book It!!
|19 weeks 6 days ago||With the subtraction of UM||
and the addition of the ACC, chery-picked I'm sure, ND should take over the win pct. lead here shortly.
Once they do, ESPN and NBC and any media outlet will start to say it's the greatest statistical accomplishment in college sports history. It's funny how some stats only mean something when certain teams or programs have the lead in them.
|20 weeks 16 hours ago||Turner is no better than Schwartz.||
Perennial underachiever who gets great talent and always seems to fall just short of the playoffs and NEVER goes to the Super Bowl.
He's a good OC though.
Lions biggest problem is no discipline, no talent in the secondary and and old, slow O line that can't open a hole or protect the QB. If it wasn't for the talent of MS and CJ and the Dline, the Lions would be 0-16 again.
If they don't get a shutdown corner, two top Olinemen and a safety, the'll repeat this 4-12 crap.
Schwartz has one more chance as I see it. Firing him is pointless with so many other jobs out there and so few great candidates and Detroit is the graveyard of coaches.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Saban loves a challenge||
OMe on now, you know that's what you're secretly hoping for. Bama destroys ND, Saban goes to Detroit, Bama falls apart, MIchigan rises to the top of the college football world.
Bama destroys ND, Saban goes to Jacksonville to revive the Jags, Chip Kelly leaves Oregon and comes to Detroit to bring the no-huddle spread to Detroit and Stafford throws for 6,000 yards and Calvin gets o 3,000 receiving yards and the Lions win the Super Bowl because no one can keep up.

|20 weeks 6 days ago||Autumn Thunder - 40 Years of NFL Films Music||
It's a compilation of all the background music NFL Films has used on 8 CDs and complete liner notes. It comes in 1-inch thick book with a pebble grain (think football grain) border on the book.
My wife was paying attention when Steve Sabol passed away and I came across this on YouTube and Ebay. It's AWESOME!
MERRY CHRISTMAS and GO BLUE!
|22 weeks 4 days ago||I prefer the Big Eye Conference||
We can be the BEC. The BEC network. The Pupil and Iris divisions.
Big Ten of B1G is starting to seem outdated. I think with all the re-alignments and teams switching conferences, so many traditional rivalries are being destroyed and the uniform lalapalooza going on, traditionis going the way of the dodo.
Let's change the name, the logo and the divisions and be done with it. I'm starting to think that playing OSU in the middle of the season would be to our advantage because they always seem to start slow and are at their best in November. If we played them in October every year, then we might be able to make it a night game and improve the stage and win more often.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe Chuck Martin, the OC at ND||
He was pretty damn good at Grand Valley State before ND. When would a better time to leave ND than when you're "on top". Right now is the best ND will get.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||I was at the Iowa game also and watch all the early warmups||
Denard threw maybe twice and they were 3-5 yard throws and they were weak. Then he just moved with the rest of the QBs. I'm no doctor, but my guess is he has surgery either now, or right after the bowl game and probably never throws a pass again.
Too bad really. He's a great kid with a huge heart and a lot tougher than he's given credit for, but he's just not a throwing QB. Round peg-square hole.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||If Bama gets to the NC game||
I will feel a lot better. Saban has always been thought of as satan anyway and he'll do whatever it takes to win.
This would be the ONLY time I would root for satan.
