there are worse places to be than NYC over the holidays
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I think we continually||
I think we continually underestimate how much players and coaches like the bowl trips... sending them to Toronto might be neat for us, but I doubt Devin Gardner is really excited about going 4 hours up the road to an even colder city over his holiday break.
I'd like to see the Big Ten ditch the bowl in Dallas and hook up with either the Sun Bowl, a really historical bowl in a cool stadium we've never played in, or the Hawaii Bowl.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||A Chicago bowl would be ok,||
A Chicago bowl would be ok, kind of like the Pinstripe Bowl. But like that bowl, you're not sending any big names there because nobody (even our own teams) would want to play there. I'd guess it'd become the preserve of Northwestern and Purdue.
An Indianapolis bowl would just be the Pizza Bowl with a less funny name
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I'd wager that west coast||
I'd wager that west coast bowls require less travelling support since B1G schools have large, underserved fan and alum bases out there who would eat up a ticket allotment
|7 weeks 2 days ago||there has never been a||
there has never been a publically out, active NHL player.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||first active pro athlete in||
first active pro athlete in this country, we should say... I know there have been out athletes in Europe since at least the late 1980's
|7 weeks 2 days ago||that's what makes this so||
that's what makes this so amazing... I always figured the NHL, easily the most liberal in terms of athletes personal politics, would be the first to have an active player come out, The NBA is probably the most hostile. I really, really hope this works out for Collins, a real hero.

The entire tourney is a final four
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah! I mean that other||
Yeah! I mean that other thing... no!
Clearly all based off the same template, just like the CFP logo will be... inevitably mixed with the bowl and NCG logos.

good, maybe he can demand a trade or something
|7 weeks 4 days ago||the Jags are over 20 years||
the Jags are over 20 years old at this point... they're an exceptional case, the worst decision in NFL history bar none.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Yes, he avoided the horrible||
Yes, he avoided the horrible fate if going to play for a shitty team in a crappy cit... oh
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I hate the Jags because||
I hate the Jags because they're a superfluous team in a horrible city with ugly uniforms and colors and no fanbase.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Wait until they hire Nick||
Wait until they hire Nick Sheridan
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Dammit, this was one of the||
Dammit, this was one of the teams I hate hate hate
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Every time some shitty team I||
Every time some shitty team I hate like Atlanta drafts, I'm paralyzed with fear that they'll take Denard
|11 weeks 1 day ago||can you believe that fucking||
can you believe that fucking sellout Schembechler walked out on his alma mater to go to Michigan?
thanks for playing
|12 weeks 1 day ago||frankly, the fact that this||
frankly, the fact that this blog suddenly discovered basketball a couple of years ago already suggested the fairweather thing. This has basically proven it... the only sport that will ever get coverage here come what may is football.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||if you sat there and watch||
if you sat there and watch the Bowling Green game in January it was.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Brian's dropping of hockey||
Brian's dropping of hockey coverage was lame as hell... to come back after months of silence, totally ignoring what was nearly a miracle run in the process, acting all petulant is kind of pathetic. And the bottle throwing thing... like, yes it's old news but still. It was a low point for him and he put it out there and should therefore suffer the consequences of publicizing such a moronic story.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||did you know that the Red||
did you know that the Red Army shot 15,000 of their own men at Stalingrad?
|15 weeks 5 days ago||I have a second gimmick||
I have a second gimmick account I dust off on occassion
I also started a revived 00goblue00 account but I don't think enough people remembered her for it to be funny
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Basically. I get the sense||
Basically. I get the sense that Brian would personally rather blog about soccer or even not blog at all than be expected to give basketball, a sport he's clearly not as interested in on a personal level, the kind of attention the team's current form demands. And that lack of passion shines through... you're never going to get an Eleven Swans or an Age of Tin or whatever about basketball on this site.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Brian is essentially a sports||
Brian is essentially a sports writer, and for most of the year his workload is severely reduced
I don't know if that really counts as "hard" work as most people understand it.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, like 5 years ago it was||
Yeah, like 5 years ago it was all kinds of cool and clever when Brian would go off on his weird little DFW cum Dennis Miller reference tangents but there is such a thing as a law of diminishing returns.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Yes, most people get them all||
Yes, most people get them all ota and every cable/sat company has them all. Often the Detroit stations, too.

they can't not
there isn't the space
|19 weeks 2 days ago||I'll never cease to be amazed||
I'll never cease to be amazed by how desperately people grasp at any tenuous associations with success. Would the Ray Lewis is the Devil screeds still be pouring out if this were 2002 and Elvis Grbac were quarterbacking Baltimore?
|19 weeks 4 days ago||You'd be incorrect, Jim was||
You'd be incorrect, Jim was already at Michigan.

and the answer is: YES! woot AAPIHS
