Completely agree. I think it's in part because I secretly conflate him with Taylor Martinez for whatever reason and together that does take us back seven years.
|1 day 9 hours ago||I'm not sure that's right.||
I'm not sure that's right. The post says "he got in trouble. He was *also* in the habit of posting partying on snapchat." Seems a more generalized comment on fit, not the cause of his suspension. And I have no idea if he was partying daily during fall camp or just over the summer, the former would have some bearing on fit I would think.
There were rumors it was weed (I think?), which would also be a dumb-as-hell reason to get a year-long suspension, but we really have no idea afaik.

Seeing Ofili narrowly miss out is made worse by NBC assuming I'd be glad about the US sweep.

"Worst of", unfortunately, has a lot of candidates."
|1 week 3 days ago||I mean yeah the NCAA is||
I mean yeah the NCAA is outrageous about this (it's a half-year IIRC from McGary) if they catch it in their very-limited screenings, but usually this is dealt with in-house with like a half-game suspension or a talking to. I would guess half the team smokes weed and gurantee 95% of the team drinks before they turn 21 (which is equally iagainst the law if not equally banned by the NCAA). So the difference between Mitchell and the rest of the team appears to be that he had the bad luck to get caught. That's a pretty stupidly arbitrary way to strip a kid of 25% of his college career, to be honest. (edit: "strip 25% of the year is a strong way to put it, I guess, since it will just be his redshirt year).
Also does anyone else enjoy the juxtaposition between this comment ("well, he broke the law") and this username. I like to imagine this is actually Avon.

The best part is Bobby Petrino who seems disdainful. You are Bobby Petrino, you have forfeited your right to be disdainful of anyone.

Hijacking to ask: in terms of sustained performance and hopelessness into the perpetual future, do we think EMU is the worst football program in FCS? Are there even other contenders?

At the risk of sounding like Dwight Schrute, isn't there a pretty huge difference between assistant to the head coach and assistant head coach? The latter sounds like a pretty major role for a guy from high school.

The Outback Bowl helmets were bad and should feel bad, but these don't look like those. The maize, as mentioned, is normal and the blue doesn't seem as matte.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Outback Bowl helmet?||
When we say matte helmets are we talking Outback Bowl style? Because those were trash and wearing them the whole year would actually bother me. But these don't look that bad.

I'm not even going to try to embed because I never do it right, but the football team tweeted out a side view and yes they do have the piping they had last year: https://twitter.com/UMichFootball/status/760530011933773824

So is there any difference from last year? I don't mind, I'm just curious.
Dislike the lack of block M's. At least bring the ones on the pants back, and I'd do back collar (as we had c. 2010-12 or so) and road sleeve too. But I think those came off on Harbaugh's orders, so I guess they were never coming back.
I would also go back to maize road pants but that matters less to me.

As they should have, to be honest, that's a remarkably arrogant request.

Yeah it's one thing for soccer/basketball/tennis/golf guys to skip it but for a shot-putter or a triathlete, this is the only big stage of their lives.
Plus the life-span of elite athletes isn't that long. Anyone over thirty (or like 12 if they're a gymnast) might never have another shot.

Weird recruitment. I get that he was on a smaller AAU circuit, but is it common (even heard of) for a guy to be unranked, have a smattering of mid-major offers, and then suddenly summer of senior year get an offer from the damn national champions?

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?

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.

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.
