Because, you know, criticizing your workplace isn't a great way to stick around. Why is this even a question? And why are you outing a guy who wants to be anonymous and was a great player for this university? Someone writing about a very real problem that is relevant today. Assuming you're even right.
Because you're a selfish prick trying to show how smart you are in figuring it out. That is the most likely answer.

With Asiasi and Eubanks down the road. Sounds like a mismatch nightmare for defense. Also super psyched about the prospect of a TE who blocks well for years to come. BIG get.

Purely because of the name.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||i'm all for any player leaving who doesn't want to play||
He is set financially and then some, and living with pain when you're older just isn't worth it anyway.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||holy crap O'Korn's chin is magnificent||
Harbaugh-esque in the chin department. Truly spectacular. Good hair too. I would vote for him for team captain or really whatever.

What would be worse than this press release would be to learn that he had done permanent damage to himself that would affect his quality of life in the future. Good luck with your rehab, Spike, and especially with your future. You gave us all some great memories.

Glad to hear you're in remission!

(non Hodgkins) but I said the same thing after Flip Saunders got his diagnosis. You never know.
Anyway, I wish James all the best. Awful disease, but treatable in most cases. I'll keep him in my thoughts.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||honestly don't care at this point||
Just hope we have good practice for the bowl game and the seniors have a good last game. Sad what happened in their last game at the big house but sometimes life is like that.
|10 weeks 14 hours ago||Honestly||
I think that going for it is what you do there. Keep playing it out. It was a vanilla play call. That did not bother me.
|10 weeks 14 hours ago||Not much to say||
Got fucking crushed in the rivalry game. Felt we were a little unlucky on offense but the defense was a complete failure from scheme to execution.
|10 weeks 14 hours ago||Double post||
|10 weeks 1 day ago||I have to admit||
Watching ND have a soul shredding loss did make me smile.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||different for different kids (of course)||
But probably around the age they can really start playing sports? So I guess for me at least it was around first grade? Just hard for a kid to have an attention span for a whole game without understanding all the rules, etc. Sports also make more sense once you have played them.
Just my opinion as someone who had MIchigan booties as a baby. I wouldn't say I truly grasped it until an ohio state fan screamed GO BUCKS in my face as an 8 year old while walking through the law quad with my dad. First Michigan game. Then Biakabatuka dropped 313 yards on 'em and seriously fuck those guys.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Definitely thought it was a borderline penalty live||
And feared a flag. But I think he actually misses Hackenberg's head with his own helmet and it wasn't as bad as it looked. No way would I think targeting, but B1G officials are total *shrugs* on that so who knwos.
Still a double impact for Hackenberg which will usually shake someone up.

|10 weeks 6 days ago||remember being at the game||
when the PA announcer announced his brain cancer. My heart really fell.
RIP young man, and thoughts with the family. Very, very sad.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||if you haven't yet||
Try Medalla. Local beer is cheap and very crisp/refreshing. Also, drink DonQ and not Bacardi...
Jealous. Love that place.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||The TV is not allowed to be on||
And we make baked goods. Mild substance abuse may be involved.
Also: long walks.
I really get way less mad now than I used to, though. I think a lot of it is A. age, and B. realizing that a lot of my anger stems from an addiction to sports coverage, which is pretty easy for me to stem once I recognize it.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I am a bit surprised we have 0 defensive linemen on that list||
But sure. Kiper has honestly been pretty good throughout the years at predicting where teams will take players.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||so i should reinforce the liquor supplies then||
God damn it.
Here is hoping the coaching staff finds a way to make things work better than I fear.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||deep breath, clenched jaw||
Terrible. Thoughts with the family and of course with Chad.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||I have at least a beer||
6.5 days a week? But more than one only once or twice a week. More than 3 like once a month.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||heartbreaking||
RIP young man, and good thoughts with his family and friends.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||should be good||
I am sure the kids will be excited. Hopefully he helps the ones who are good enough get to playing college ball.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Please COTG||
Can we have a QB who can throw the ball deep soon? I am totally cool with it not being this year and I am happy Jake Rudock is on the football team. But soon? This is just so sad.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||hooray||
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Mike Goodman is the only writer I have ever yelled at on twitter||
Just astonishingly bad in my opinion.
Disagree on the Simmons articles though. I thought a lot of those were pretty good. Barnwell I did not read a ton of but he was great on the podcast with Mays.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||sbnation is good for that||
It's pretty hard to cover pop culture without getting into politics though.
