ABC7 reported that Scalia died in his sleep after a day of quail hunting. Unconfirmed reports indicate that as Scalia was being processed at the Eternal Afterlife immigration station, he was heard muttering "Goddammit, I never should have gone hunting with Cheney."

Your sneering condescension towards WD that you couched in pompous "truth-telling" is pretty rich.
StoneRoses, June 3rd, 2013: "I currently am a used car salesman in Kalamazoo, MI"
As for calling a spade a spade:
StoneRoses, December 3rd, 2012: "If ever there was a defensive player that should win the heisman besides Woodson, it would be Teo. Just a great kid (man) and the heart and soul of his team. This might be blashphemy on this board but I personally think Teo meant more to 2012 ND than Woodson meant to 1997 Michigan."

So it was moronic to expect Brady Hoke to be accountable to the media about Shane Morris's concussion?
|13 hours 18 min ago||It's a law of nature||
Information vacuums will be filled with speculation, rumor, innuendo, and gossip. It doesn't matter whether the context is sports or politics or military affairs. Humans have an insatiable need to fill in the blanks, regardless of whether they fill them in with nonsensical codswallop or reality.
I agree that Beilein is not contractually or ethically bound to provide the media and the fans with hard information about an injury to a star player, but he's beyond naive if he thinks that his refusal to provide information will be passively accepted by those on the outside. That's not the way the world works.
And he's made the situation worse by the contradictory or confusing statements he's made.
"I want to be clear about something with Caris. Nothing is clear." is right up there with "I was aware, but not fully aware."

My first year at UM was 1971, and people were riled up about Orr even then. It wasn't too long after that that anti-Orr fans were standing on State St. and along Hoover with big "Dump Johnny Orr" signs during the pre- and post-game trek to and from Crisler.

I'm not really knowledgeable about BB beyond a surface level and I'd guess that those who are could poke large holes in my statement, but the parallels seem to be there to my unsophisticated eyes.
Part of my frustration is that when I was in school during the '70s, those Michigan teams with Grote, Staton, Britt, Baxter, Hubbard, and even Ricky Green played hellacious, in-your-face defense all game long. There was no such thing as opposing shooters getting uncontested open looks all day. I know it's a different era and every coach has his own system, but it's a rare team that gets very far in the post-season if it can't play fundamentally strong defense, and the few teams that do generally have lights-out offenses. We're far from that.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Michigan BB the last two years reminds me of football under RR||
Focus almost entirely on offensive part of the game utilizing soft finesse players; defense appearing to be a complete afterthought; inexplicable coaching decisions in-game regarding personnel, strategy, use of TOs, etc; team is competitive against mid-level-to-bad opponents, but completely outmatched in talent and even some intangibles when playing good teams.

I thought the original Schembechler Hall was a pig-ugly monstrosity the day it opened. Its architect Gunnar Birkerts designed some very notable buildings in his career, but that weird thing on State St. was an embarrassment.
