How does a guy like that end up in the NAHL rather than getting offers straight from HS, making the USHL, or making the NTDP?

I'm all in for an activity-based trophy. Winner gets to tar and feather DB and carry him out of the stadium on a pole.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||For me they have always been||
For me they have always been one of our big three rivals; prior to our losing streak against MSU I would have put them as an unquestioned second. Not playing them feels like not playing OSU or MSU to me.*
*This may be a product of growing up in the 90s/00s and going to M in the late 00s.

Between this and a brief google, the "Order of Bulls['] Blood" appears to be a low-rent version of Order of Angell (the artist formerly known as Michigauma) but with an additional obsession with one-way trolling better schools. Awesome.

Well it's an acrostic poem (seriously check out the first letter of each line) which adds challenges. Also adds to the hilarity.

Hutch has the patience of a god damn saint to talk to the umpire like that.

"5 of those 6 strikeouts looking." I WONDER WHY, ESPN, I WONDER WHY?

Notable that we don't get even an inch off the plate. It's like we're on an episode of Punked. Stunning Hutch hasn't gone totally postal yet.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||So are all umps bad? Last||
So are all umps bad? Last night the stroke zone ended at the waist, today it extends through the ouside batter's box every. damn. time. Basically every K looking so far is middle of the box at best.

I don't watch softball regularly but saw her offensive stats this year compared to the other non-pitcher finalist and it wasn't even close. Unless the other finalist played the double-your-stats-card of passing up the pros to g̶e̶t̶ ̶m̶o̶r̶e̶ ̶m̶o̶n̶e̶y̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶a̶ ̶f̶r̶e̶e̶ ̶a̶g̶e̶n̶t̶ ̶ further her eductation, this should have been unanimous.

Casey at the bat.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||In no order.||
A World Cup
One of those soccer games where you might get stabbed (Rangers/Celtic or Boca/River)
A Michigan Final Four or CFP playoff (blew that one in 2013 and am still angry).

Good lord, WD. Sometimes your obsessive knowledge is fascinating.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||"everyone has conference opponents"||
Sure but other B1G teams don't have the only two competent west teams as their crossovers. Moreover, I don't know if SoS accounts for home/road, but it strikes me that having all three of our strongest opponents away makes our prospects for goint 2-1/3-0 over that stretch significantly lower.
Seems like our B1G schedule could be significantly easier. MSU/OSU at home+Illinois/Purdue crossovers would feel like a cakewalk to the playoff.

I'm glad about Rutgers. Allows us non-NYC Eastern Seaboard alumni to go without having to take off work Friday or get up at the ass-crack of dawn on Saturday.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||UNO||
What do you guys think of UNO? They're decent enough and as long as Lincoln doesn't have a team, they could be the Nebraska filler.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||¯\_(ツ)_/¯||
It's against the rules and I don't like being at a competitive disadvantage, so I guess it should be punished. But, damn, I can't even fathom being morally bothered by a guy, bringing in a million a year for the program, getting a few hundred so his mom doesn't get her lights cut.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I mean he's clearly just||
I mean he's clearly just going in a circle trying to run out the clock before he gets fouled. When he gets caught he passes to Marshall. It wasn't a good play on his part, but there was some reasoning to it.

Is Friedel still there? I could spend days examining the contours of his Ohio/Northern English accent hybrid.
|11 weeks 15 hours ago||Get off my lawn||
I grew up going to Lambeau; it's a great experience and as college-ey as you can get in the NFL. But college football is for college students and the college community. It should always be on campus. Hell, I'd have the semifinals on campus if it were up to me. If the NCAA wanted to ban something for no reason, they should have started with neutral site regular season games.
|11 weeks 15 hours ago||Their crossover games are||
Their crossover games are Michigan, Michigan State, and OSU!? Yikes.
|11 weeks 15 hours ago||The article I read said that||
The article I read said that the better proposals would have the laser in space to minimize energy lost in the atmosphere, but no one would allow these guys to basically build the Death Star. I have no idea how science works; just parroting what I read.

Well today I learned that there is such a thing as Hartwick College and such a thing as Oneanta, New York.

The actual golf to Jim Nantz schmaltzy nonsense ratio is 1:1 at best.

I was wondering where this desire to play for his dad has been the last few years. I know he didn't have a Stanford offer, but why? Did he not have the grades?

Thats frustrating on what would have been by far the biggest win in program history (I think).

35k seems to be the consensus. The hivemind thinks that's pretty good since it's cold, and hash bash, and Friday night.

Why did we not look this up before we scheduled a game for this Friday night for the TV attention?

With obvious exceptions (i.e. drops) I struggle to differentiate between being great on both sides of the ball and being bad on both of them. But my feelingsball take is that it we looked way better than last spring.
