Very nicely done and really at Brian level which is saying something.
I do sometimes worry about the lionization of these players though; it is part of the culture of putting too much significance into young people playing sports that leads to some of the downsides we've seen over the past years both at UM and elsewhere. As much as it is hard to admit, the fact that articles like this exist is part of a problem as well as being something wonderful to behold and idealize.
Jordan Morgan has worked hard, and I root for him to succeed at UM and at life. But he's just playing basketball; it's not more than that.

high class trolling is this.
if it is actually successful, they will get another free PR stunt when they make it available at OSU.
this guy may be a genius!

does this answer your question?
|2 days 10 hours ago||this makes no sense||
this makes no sense unless you change where the 2-pointer is tried from as well.
a better idea: steal from rugby. just change it so that the place on the field that where you kick from in the lateral direction is based upon where the touchdown was scored. in rugby, it is based on where the ball is placed, or crazily enough "touched down", but in the NFL it would likely be where the player crosses the line.

sometimes we forget there are different types of people. the people who would handle this easily are people who don't have trouble w/ confrontation. some other people avoid confrontation, and hence this would be hard to handle. not excusing it, but it does go against some people's nature to "get involved".

you are allowed to start the game well?

I think refs should call technicals on coaches immediately when they go nuts.

Fiction but wow it feels real. Written by former player Elwood Reid.

I was at the Robert Henderson game. The game basically sucked because UM was way ahead and slowly let Illinois tie it up. And then Henderson hit the game winner and the place went crazy.
Later I saw him going to the movies at Fox Village.

It must be great to be a woman in sports journalism.
Every time you do something, you get a bunch of guys commenting on how you look.

which oddly implies the possible existance of funnier posts, but for those, you didn't laugh. CURMUDGEON!

what is the surprise here? Being an athelete in many sports is not lucrative, if not all sports. It's just like going into entertainment - you might get lucky and make it, but usually you don't.
That said, another good article at Grantland. They produce some quality stuff...

though the normalization can lead to problems of course.
One might deal with the normalization issue by also including a summary of the entire roster (thus summing recruiting rankings over the years).
