FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.

And I like Burritos.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Not sure what you mean about||
Not sure what you mean about my attitude. But, ok. Also confused by the *better and fairer examples* being football and baseball. Baseball actually allows its players to earn a living straight out of high school, albeit in a minor league system. Football doesn't. And actually requires an additional year of servitude in the NCAA, compared with college BB. Generally, I prefer the professional versions of these sports, as well. Generally.
Again, I'd love for college basketball players to hang out and play for my laundry for a few years, maybe even earn degrees. That said, I can appreciate elite players : 1) wanting to get paid if they are able, 2) getting opportunities to develop against better competition. Furthermore, going to college/staying in college in no predictor for success or even continued employment (insert countless examples here).
I went to a handful of Duke games this year. They were more enjoyable with Jabari Parker. But since he's good at basketball, he has a right to get paid for it. So I'll enjoy him in the NBA. This isn't hard.

As much as I'd like to see elite college MBB stay four years, I'm ok with one and done. I'm in the minority on this board becasue I prefer watching NBA talent. And I'm cool with watching NBA talent play in *college* - even if for a year or two.
I do NOT prefer watching replays of the Duke/Butler championship in 2010. My eyes only recently stopped bleeding (and yes I know Butler clanged a shot that could have upset Duke...lots of shots clanged...).

Those games were bad matchups for the Pats. Schematically, it seems like BB was adequately prepared overall, but the NYG DL was simply too much to handle. And then the Pats defense shit the bed late. Both times.

Bill Belichick. And its not even close. Please bring me your accusations of cheating, tell me he's bad with the press, he cuts fan favorites, make fun of his cut-off hoodie. But if you're honest, you probably hate him because he's beaten your team at some point. (or you're Bernie Kosar's mother). Tell me another coach that caused a U.S. Senator to suck on sour grapes so bad he felt compelled to call for a meeting witht the NFL Commissioner.

I'll mail $0.75 to the person who can dig out and embed the soundbyte of Wyche yelling at Cinci fans during a game to stop thowing things on the field because "YOU DON'T LIVE IN CLEVELAND!!!!"

Right. Rope a dope. Urbz had us right where he wanted us.

How did OSU's coaches explain their horror-show defense last year? I don't recall Urban Meyer taking much responsibility anywhere in his career, but I could be wrong.

Sorry. I've been to a few games at Penn St - as well as a number of games when they travel here. Their fans carried themselves almost as well as Nebraska's. Bad apples, etc. But Ohio fans are easily the most unpleasant.

I've had OSU fans scream at me in Ann Arbor. OSU fan behavior reached the point in 2011 where I don't want to go to the game in my home stadium. Can't imagaine what its like for Michigan fans in Columbus. Do you think it is an accident that we'll never see an OSU/UM night game in Ann Arbor? I know....I know....*weather*.

You are correct. When you are ahead - especially late - you suppress the other team's willingness to run and accumulate running ydg. But you're not necessary stopping the run in the most literal sense.

I don't think LBJ does many clubs these days, but I could be wrong.

Football Outsiders, if I'm not mistaken, said something to the effect of "teams don't necessarily run successfully to win, they run successfully because they're winning." Likewise, when you're winning, you're generally better able to *stop* the run.

Kyrie is capable of providing more value at this point in his career than Wade given Wade's injury history in the last couple years. Wiggins is more of an unknown, but LeBron was reportedly getting frustrated with Bosh's tendency to get comfortable waiting around at the 3-pt line for a LeBron kick-out.

I think that means the Cavs could reacquire Zeller without the subsequent hit to their cap. The Tyler Zeller exemption.

Nussmeier. Assuming he can make progress with the OL, the offense will show capable improvement over last year.
Cue the sideline TV shots of the confident, visor-wearing reason for our newfound efficency... against the next shot of our hot-seat sitting, gumpy, non-headsetted, underachieving nice guy. I don't necessarily agree, but we could be hearing that narrative as the running game finds its level and DG reduces INT's.

There are plenty of inherrent lifestyle, health and legal risks associated with coke. But if cola is how you roll on a particular evening, LET ONE OF YOUR BOYS KEEP IT IN HIS POCKET. Even as a three-star, the party will find you.

This post wins today. Each one of the pics gives me chills.
I used to say ND was my superbowl because I came of age during the Holz/Bo era.
But I never walked out of a stadium with tears running down my face and unable to talk like I did after the OSU game in 2011.

I've been wondering that myself for a couple of years while reading between the lines of info from Fort Schem. However, it sometimes take people a few years before they're comfortable in a leadership position. Hopefully Gardner's superhero game against Ohio gave him some traction.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||As an aside, the US/Belgium||
As an aside, the US/Belgium match scored a 9.8 rating. On a Tuesday afternoon. The US/Portugal match had a 16.5 rating on Sunday. Neither of these included Univision or the WatchESPN App). The 18.2 million viewers of Sunday's game (and this was a conservative figure) was more than any game of the NBA Finals or last fall's World Series and the average NFL game (18 million/15 million/17.6 million).
So clearly someone needs to join Ann Coulter and tell folks that nobody cares about soccer.
