|1 day 9 hours ago||We've had success is||
We've had success is basketball the last few years, but not on the same level as Kentucky and Duke (and not for as long either). Plus, Kentucky is dirty as hell and Beilein is clean as a whistle, so it's not like there's a level playing field there. As for football, we've sucked since most of these kids were 8 or 9 years old, and tradition only takes you so far. Just be happy we now have the right man for the job and try to enjoy the ride. Letting recruiting success, or lack thereof, upset you just isn't worth it. I'm not trying to be snarky or anything, but if it's pissing you off so much you really should take a step back, play with your kids more, go for a run, or pick up a new hobby. Making an emotional investment in high schoolers' decisions just isn't a good idea.

Refraining from calling a 17 year old a stud shouldn't require any sort of agreement, just basic common sense and non-creepiness

If it pisses you off so much, just stop following recruiting. We've been pretty bad for the better part of a decade, and until we start winning again we're going to lose more head-to-head recruiting battles against the FSUs and Alabamas of the world than we're going to win. If you can't accept that, then take a step back.

Beyond a reasonable doubt is the standard in criminal convictions. This isn't a criminal matter, so they wouldn't need to

Thanks for the link. Slow day at work so I just signed up my kids.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Pretty sure the students have||
Pretty sure the students have their own entrance now and that student IDs are required to get into the student section, so you may have to reconsider your plan. Unless you can still pass for a student, that is

This is just a friendly reminder to avoid the comment section on Mlive like the plague.

It's possible, I suppose, but I just don't see Hackett allowing that.
|1 week 2 days ago||I can't imagine he has much,||
I can't imagine he has much, if any, trade value. He's terrible defensively and ok at best at the plate

I don't know, but damnit if they didn't succeed
|1 week 2 days ago||That would be a bad move.||
That would be a bad move. Could they win the wildcard? Sure, but there's no way they can get enough help before the trade deadline to be in a position to win the World Series. There's no consolation prize for making the playoffs. They need to get something for Price and Cespedes while they still can.

As is all weight gain
|1 week 2 days ago||Better to give up the rest of||
Better to give up the rest of this season than sacrifice the next several with uncompetitive teams. There are a lot of potential buyers and Price has to be the number 1 guy on most teams' lists. Hopefully DD can drive a hard bargain and bring in some young talent

Haven't read a lot of comics, but I thought Preacher was awesome. My absolute favorite was the Saint of Killers backstory. Just an awesome take on a traditional western

Taking the kids to the splash park today. Really looking forward to it

It all stems from the fact the Craig James killed 5 hookers. Allegedly

Fuck that school, it's fans, and it's uniforms. Fuck JoePa and his whole delusional family

I live in Ann Arbor and can't stand the art fair. I love the summers here, with the exception of this week
|2 weeks 2 days ago||The auctions seem to be||
The auctions seem to be listed on a federal government website, so you're pretty much right, except it's the U.S. government looking for someone to foot the bill, not michigan

That is an idiotic comparison, unless I'm missing the sarcasm, in which case, sorry

Wasn't there supposed to be a satanic element to this season? I could swear I read that a while back but I'm not sure. I guess it's still possible, with the creepy goat masks and all, but we'll see.

Can someone please make it stop? Anyone?

I'm with you. I'll probably continue to watch just because season 1 was so good, but it's really disappointing so far

Right now, I think Penn State is taking up about 50% of my college sports hate. Of course I also hate OSU, state and ND, but I genuinely wish pain and suffering on the vast majority of PSU fans at this point.

I guess he was serious about announcing at 2 pm sharp. Welcome aboard and go blue!

I would second this. There are a lot of good restaurants, but Pacific Rim is by far my favorite.
