Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

This needed to be added.

|4 days 9 hours ago||Michigan||
|5 days 8 hours ago||No one has addressed the real concern||
WHAT IF THIS JINXES MICHIGAN AND THEY DON'T MAKE THE TOURNEY???
|5 days 9 hours ago||Eh||
I've seen plenty of teams with a 3 win, -3 loss non-conference schedule.
|5 days 10 hours ago||No chance||
Even if they beat Michigan, they'd be 18-14 with 11 losses in conference play, including losses to Northwestern, Purdue, Illinois, and Penn State, plus they beat absolutely no one in non-conference play (their only Top 200 wins were #89 Washington, #163 Stony Brook and #177 Oakland).
They need a miracle to get in. Probably several miracles.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Yeah...||
That probably wasn't accurate.
|6 days 3 hours ago||Oh yeah||
Because the regime is always so forthcoming about injuries.
"Devin Gardner's head fell off. Hoke described the injury as an 'upper body boo-boo.' His status for Saturday is unclear.

Some guys genuinely enjoy their life-crushing jobs.

Rumor threads like those pan out like 1/3 of the time, and when they do, people are always like, "SEE, Y U NO LEAVE OTHER THREAD UP." But people rarely say anything the other 2/3 of the time. The whole point is that it may or may not be accurate, but without a source (and no, teh RCMB doesn't count as a source), it goes away.

Gesturing to each other out of happiness. This isn't the throat slash/choke sign/showing-up-your-opponent stuff.
Is it juvenile? Sure. But they're KIDS. so "juvenile" works just fine.

Are to guarantee you sell out the stadium.
Michigan sells out the stadium.
This idea is bad.

No name-calling... especially stupid juvenile name-calling of a guy potentially in the hospital.

Did you read the post?
|1 week 2 days ago||100%||
That sounds too high. That would mean the chances of not winning a Big Ten title are 0%. Which means, uh... SOMEONE BRING ME MY CALCULATOR, ASAP.
|1 week 2 days ago||Not surprising||
Because Vegas can react to stuff a passive algorithm wouldn't pick up, like injuries, suspensions, etc.

It's summer in Bolivia.

I do not recall this event. No sir, never happened.

He really doesn't have a case for defamation.

If they're just declaring live people dead like this, no wonder the life expectancy numbers are low.

Da Seminolez is goin ta be a funky-ass bubble crew right ta tha end here, so peek-a-boo, clear tha way, I be comin' thru fo'sho fo' realz. A win over Pizzle puts dem back up in tha picture yo, but they probably need at least four mo' wins. They have Georgia Tech, Boston College, Syracuse, n' tha ACC tournament left, so tha clock aint they playa.

It's a real stretch to say they are school officials, let alone that their role as school officials requires that they have access to this information to accomplish their duties.
|1 week 4 days ago||I know||
But it's basically the Ann Arbor News now, so despite the reputation of its comments sections, it's too reputable to run crap like this.
|1 week 4 days ago||C'mon||
"Fisking" has come to mean this type of paragraph-by-paragraph critique, regardless of the type of content. The man's Wikipedia page even says so.
|1 week 5 days ago||The best argument against it||
Is that the University doesn't choose the members of the CSG. The students do.
FWIW, I'm not upset about being challenged. I rather enjoy legal debates like this. But I'm pretty confident that regardless of whether they consider themselves a committee, they don't fit the definition.
|1 week 5 days ago||Not really||
The University defines "school official" as follows:
A University official is any person employed by the University in an administrative, supervisory, academic, research, or support position; a person elected to the Board of Regents; a student or a University graduate serving on an official University committee or assisting another University official in performing his or her tasks; or a person employed by or under contract to, or serving as the agent of, the University to perform a specific task.
The CSG is not an "official University committee." It is, by its own description, a student organization. Further, the definition of "legitimate educational interest" is as follows:
Legitimate educational interest is the need to review an education record in order for a University official to carry out his or her responsibilities in regard to performing an administrative task outlined in the official's duties, or performing a supervisory or instructional task directly related to the student's education.
(Emphasis mine). Even if we're somehow assuming students on CSG are officials, reviewing such cases is almost certainly not part of their outlined duties.
