5 single game options and 2 two game options? So this means if I want tickets to ND or OSU, I'm going to have to buy a game against Akron or Central Michigan, huh?
|8 weeks 1 hour ago||I'd imagine it will be where||
I'd imagine it will be where it always is, Saprissa, which is made of FieldTurf (awful for soccer), and the US has never won there.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Ban Hazard for a couple of||
Ban Hazard for a couple of months. You simply cannot do that to a fan, ball boy, ref, etc. The ref would have been adding on time and woud have been well within his rights to kick the ball boy off the field. That is some shit you'd see from a pair of 6 year olds.
An interesting note, and one that I don't think excuses Hazard in the least, but the ball boy is only 4 years younger than him.

We have to improve the defense. 9/15 from 3 doesn't happen entirely through them being on fire. We've given them a lot of open looks.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||Wedding...||
Wife day for me mostly revolves around a wedding that my fiance is in tomorrow. She's in it and has to be there at 10:30am. Ceremony is at 2, reception at 5 (Catholic wedding...)
So I will probably get up, watch the Ryder Cup, drop fiancee off, watch more Ryder Cup/football, go to ceremony, find somewhere to watch football/Ryder Cup, reception. Good news for reception is open bar. Bad news for reception is fiancee isn't drinking, so it won't be as fun. But overall, for wife day, it's not going to be a bad day at all. I'm not too upset about missing most of college football tomorrow. Not that many good games on.

Unprecedented = no death penalty. I wonder what they've got in mind exactly. Strange to see it come so fast, too.

Neither. Buy NCAA 04 and you'll be be getting the same (if not a better) game.

No, the stupidest thing you did was marrying someone who insisted on getting married on a day with Michigan football on.

And just as I post that, Donovan and Jones with a great move in the final 3rd. Easy goal.

Like what I'm seeing from the US. Just need a little bit more in the final 3rd. Boyd is giving tons of effort, but he looks a little out of his element right now. Very raw. Some really good flashes but a lot of bad moments, too.
|51 weeks 5 days ago||There's one going on right||
There's one going on right now, too. Italian soccer is a mess. Of course, after the match fixing scandal in 2006, Italy won the World Cup. In 1982, there was also a match fixing scandal in Italy, and they won the World Cup. Maybe they'll win the Euro Cup this time?

Come on, if students are going to be made to show up early, then you have to balance it out by making the blue hairs actually cheer. Michigan Stadium has a reputation for being a graveyard not because the students show up late but because the old rich people won't get up off their asses and cheer. It's getting better, but you can't single out the students for bad atomsphere and ignore the elephant in the room.
Also, I'd imagine that once the team is consistently better, students will show up earlier. I remember 7 years ago the stadium being pretty full at the beginning of games. There's a reason that these students don't show up early... they have been traumatized by our team. There wasn't a reason to show up early, much less show up at all, for the average student for 3 of the last 4 years. Hell, 5 of the last 7 seasons have been bad. What's the point of getting there early if it's just going to depress you?

I've never had to wait in a line for the student sections, but for basically every other section there is a huge line. I get that students don't really care about sitting in their exact seat and other people do, but is necessary to have such a big difference? I agree with you 100%. This needs to be sped up. I dread the day that I miss kickoff despite getting in the stadium 30 minutes early because of those lines.

Why is the prosecutor wasting everybody's time and money with this trial? It sounds like a situation that happens probably ten times in Ann Arbor every night. Call the cops, have a come to jesus meeting with Furman, and leave it there. The prosecutor is a dick for having it go anywhere past that (but hey, she got on ESPN!). Unfortunately, that article makes it seem like he'll be convicted of the illegal entry, which is a same for Furman. I hope he gets a repreive from Hoke and the justice system.
On a different note, that article is pretty terrible. It doesn't say whether it is a jury or bench trial, which is kind of a big deal. A jury is more likely to be compassionate and not convict Furman on these facts, but I'm guessing a judge would. That's kind of key information, Mr. Rothstein.

This is a point we might be missing. Michigan has I think 3 or 4 separate majors, if not more, that are more or less computer science degrees. Maybe Florida is trying to consolidate computer science with computer engineering/electrical engineering.

http://www.nhlwheelofjustice.com/ gave me a hockey play result on the Shaw play. So the Shaw suspesion seems strange to me...

It's really bad in Central America. All of the smaller countries there seem to dive and time waste a lot. El Salvador is by far the worst of the lot, too.

It's really hard to believe that Adu is still eligible for a U-23 team. I feel like I wrote him off 4 years ago as a MNT contributor.

Over/Under on the number of Cuban defectors during the tournament is at 5. What you got?

Not that that wasn't a charge, but it was an EPIC flop. I hear AC Milan will make a bid for that guy.

Our defense is ATROCIOUS. We need to try something else. We're all over the place.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Legit shot? Yeah, I can buy||
Legit shot? Yeah, I can buy that. The problem is that St. Louis is pretty good, too, and 8/9 games are a crapshoot. I wouldn't be overly surprised if it happened, but I would never pick an 8/9 seed to upset a 1 seed. Too much can go wrong in picking that.

Lunardi is actually pretty medicore at bracketology: http://bracketproject.50webs.com/matrix.htm
Middle-end of the pack, and that's how he fares most years. He's not awful, but the worldwide leader should be doing better. Also, isn't this basically all he does? You think he would do better than that.
Bottom line, Lunardi is not a wizard, and there are much better places to go for projections.

Saint Louis could be a tough test for them in the second round. They are definitely underseeded.

The video is horrific. I don't know why there were nets where he crashed. Unfortunately, this is bound to happen with skiing, especially with a sport like ski cross. I've been skiing all my life and I wouldn't dare to compete like that.

Why would you tempt fate by posting this before the game is over?

I thought he was awesome. The singing and the great lines about Wilbon and pants on the ground had me rolling the entire time. He was also pretty insightful, too. Interesting points about the charges, talking about where Leonard was playing, etc. I would love to see him as a color commentator (why does it have to be COLOR commentary? ;) ) more often.
