|5 days 6 hours ago||Also confused by use of Peppers on offense||
basically all Pepcat predictable runs into the defense or short side of field.
I'm sure it's a set up for something eventually but you'd think they'd at least try getting him in space once. Sweep wide, roll him out, end around, etc?
|1 week 10 hours ago||Since everyone is joking on the title or making fun of louisvill||
the NOA basically says nothing further coming to the university, the NCAA holds that the assistant McGee is predominantly responsible and though Pitino should have known he wasn't complicit. He'll likely get a suspension of a few games. No illeligible players played on any of the years it went on, including 2013, and the total cost of infractions was $5400 over 4 years (so like, nothing), and there will be no wins vacated.

I think comes as much from game viewing as it does from pure stats. His stats aren't bad at all, but when you watch the games you see him short arming easy crossing routes, throwing balls that are even outside a wide openn 'Butt'zone, and looking far too uncomfortable on plays in which he has plenty of time and space. Stats don't show that he could and should have been much better in a few games.
Then again, Michigan is inarguably one of the top 4 teams right now, and only has positions of any real concern at all, QB and Kicker. Speight has the ball a lot more than Allen so he has plenty of opportunity to draw ire.
|4 weeks 11 hours ago||The guy from Ole Miss||
has more catches, more yards, a better average, as many Touchdowns, better YAC, and a better receiving grade than Butt thanks to Butt's case of the dropsies recently.
Fan blinders in full force here
|5 weeks 2 days ago||2 things though||
Denard, and most other September-Heisman people's numbers weren't as mindblowing as Jackson's so far and weren't against as good of opposition.
and 2, they weren't on potentially great teams like Louisville is now. Unlike Denard, Jackson has a ton of talent around him
|10 weeks 10 hours ago||Reports right now are||
that the other swimmers have all confirmed the story was made up and Lochte's idea or doing.
|11 weeks 1 min ago||This is a waste of money BUT||
didn't EA tease more NCAA football a couple months ago by posting like a cardiograph picture/gif acting like there was a pulse on the NCAA football facebook page or did that end up being nothing?
|12 weeks 6 days ago||It seems like they're maybe that confident?||
You get a big out of state player considered to be a steal by most recruitniks, I can see the logic in making sure he takes those officials. 1, it helps make him be certain and limits late flip risk and 2, if he's that sold on Michigan he'll just be espousing that to other recruits in the area. It'll look nice having a highly ranked guy from the south saying, "Yeah I saw Georgoa, I saw Alabama, LSU, etc. Michigan was still better."
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I'd encourage everyone repeating this refrain||
(though this is a politer version than saying she's a looney)
to check other actual sources and look at the bruises and choke marks she has all over and has posted online. TMZ didn't show them for some reason but it takes 5 seconds and they've already been posted/linked in this thread multiple times.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||He didn't say there are two sides||
You can say, "we should wait until there is more information to rush to judgment." and done that just fine, he said she could be a looney person making it all up for money. Those are vastly different and if you don't understand how that's in the same vein as, "I'm not a racist, BUT...." comments then wtf is wrong with you?
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Besides letting his players get away with whatever they want||
**good ones anyway
he is a well known cheat who racked up those Florida co-eds, so there's that.
|16 weeks 14 hours ago||Michigan, like all top universities||
surely does plenty of things that skirt the rules as far as player benefits go. That's likely more of the on campus help type things, and no the same as Ole Miss or Auburn flat dropping thousands to get a recruit. I think Michigan for sure has its version of bag men helping current players, I've never seen any indication Michigan has anything near like Treadwell going to Ole Miss and flashing pictures of his sorority hosts and him with $1000s in cash.
|17 weeks 13 hours ago||#6 Ambry Thomas||
really wants to play with his cousin Jaylen Kelly-Powell. Package deal caveats but both have said it's like 10/10 on importance. Important and useful because JKP is the leaningest Michigan lean there is now.
If I remember correctly, JKP has a top 3 roughly of M, MSU, and ND
Thomas has a top 3 of MSU, M, PSU in rough orders I think.
JKP is way more Michigan than MSU, though, but Thomas has seemed like a Sparty lean. Thomas wants to wait to commit, JKP I think wants to decide soonish.

and the security of the EU was a heavy chunk of the reason they stayed in the UK. UK citizens in Scotland overwhelmingly voted to stay in the EU, they were like 65-75% for staying. Used to travel there often and still know a bunch of people in Glasgow and Edinburgh - evne ones that voted to stay in the UK before are mega pissed at the English right now, because it was their old, angry people that voted enough to bounce from the EU split. Ireland is in about the same boat.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||This is different than Enron going under telling people to buy||
the whole markets are dropping due to uncertaintly and discord, not a specific company like then. The markets will recover over long haul regardless, and if not then there may be bigger issues and causes than Brexit. As long as you're not investing short term and aren't looking to cash out next week, any invested money will be fine and not a big loss if left alone.
|18 weeks 12 hours ago||I don't think the concept is meant to be "Lebron now"||
but imagine if people with Lebron's natural gifts started playing soccer early instead of basketabll/football/baseball/hockey. People like Lebron are natural born (with tons of effor obviously) amazing athletes, his entire life has been focused on turning him into a near unstoppable basketball force -- if the US had someone with his gifts and that kid grew up loving soccer instead, he'd almost certainly be very very good.
Soccer requires different technical skills for sure, but those are developed on top of natural gifts and work ethic. Do you think Messi isn't a world class athlete because he's smaller and plays soccer? No, because he's a great athlete with amazing technical perfection that has been developed over his life. The US has plenty of athletes with the natural gifts to be exceptional soccer players, we just need to be able to build the technical skills early like we do with other sports. Promising basketball kids are in AAU traveling camps by 10 now, football has year long 7 on 7 leagues and now camps all over with top tier hosting. Soccer has youth traveling teams as well, unlike the others it's just not near up to snuff globally; here a lot of 12 years olds are still playing in co-ed rec leagues coached by some kid's dad or a random gym teacher even when they're good because not many other good options, in Europe they're in development leagues by that point getting real coaching. Jurgen wanted to work on that, and started good things, but his performance with the USMNT despite a semis appearance at the Copa wasn't really up to expectations even for the US.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||You guys have wonderful optimism||
You know JK will take Beckerman and Wando over any of the young players without main national team experience.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Why?||
The team has made no progress under him, he makes horrible lineup decisions repeatedly, and he'll be fired after we get bounced from the 2018 World Cup regardless. So do it now and maybe have positive momentum going into that, not be limping in with crap and everyone knowing the coach is on his way out.

|18 weeks 2 days ago||UM Athletics budget "break even"||
are major universities still trying to pretend their athletic departments lose money? Even with Dave Brandon messing things up horrendously, if Michigan had a deficit it's because they largely wanted to and spent money on things to make sure it got spent in that year. This is to me like how every year tons of stories pop up about how some teams lose money going to football bowl games, even though that has been bunked a few times.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||I'm sure they're trying||
dude is a beast, but he has every other top school after him too pretty much so it would take work
|19 weeks 1 day ago||But if it was in Burkina Faso||
we'd get to hear people on TV try saying Ouagadougou a lot!
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Basically what it really means||
is that a coach is telling him that's their projection at this point. But that is ever fluid and could change once they start fall camp and players actually get to compete.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Saban's approach is that he's Alabama||
it doesn't matter than he doesn't care about the players because they're Alabama, they'll win a lot of football games, some bowl games, get seen readily and often by scouts (plus for the plethora of great southeastern players be close to home), and have a nice path to the NFL. If Harbaugh shows that Michigan offers those things on the same level but actually you know.. gives a damn, then that will be a recruiting benefit.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||The other mentioned lapse wasn't this tournament||
He made that one bad mistake against Colombia but has been very good the rest of the time.

|20 weeks 5 days ago||I don't understand why so many think he should get Russia||
It's 2 years away, that puts us 6 years away from being relevent for a World Cup.
When we're bounced from group stage here, let him go and maybe someone else can build on the young talent we have now.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||We're going to get eliminated from group stage here probably||
Gold Cup was atrocious, no Olympics.
But we won a couple meaningless friendlies against teams that didn't care a year ago. So yay?
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Bradley is playing awful as well||
back to back terrible giveaways, after being the cause of the PK goal as well.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Ok seriously||
how does Zardes have this bad of a first touch still?
