Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

A philosophical debate on a sports message board could ONLY happen with Michigan fans. And I mean that as a high compliment.

I am 26, a new UM fan, and I would DEFINITELY go if I was still in Ann Arbor. $20 is not a big investment, and it's one of those "go for the experience" kind of deals.
The Slippery Rock tradition is fun, and the crowd goes wild every time they show the score DESPITE the fact that half the people have no idea WHY we care about them (I only know because I did some Google searching).
Yes, it isn't going to be great football, but who cares? SRU only plays at the Big House once in a blue moon, and if the choice is between going to the game or sitting around catching up on your favorite new show on Netflix, I don't see why you wouldn't go.
Also, the idea that there won't be energy has got to be false. Everybody there will be rooting for Slippery Rock. They are America's favorite non-D1 team.

I would neg the OP, but I think we're already past the point of beating a dead horse.
Also, I need to save my neg points for the season in case we get trollers.

Yeah, I would be VERY surprised if this was true. I think 247 made a boo-boo.
If you look at his timeline, he has never even visited USC and they don't actually show an offer from USC on his 247 page. And while the Crystal Ball is never the BEST indicator, it only shows B1G teams.

I love Draftageddon. I'm a late-comer to B1G football (East Coast kid who grew up on the NFL and only started following college football when I chose Michigan for law school), so Draftageddon provides an entertaining way of learning something about the rest of the B1G.
Also, the snark alone is worth the price of admission. And BiSB's meltdown following the Sean Davis pick was hilarious to say the least.
(I think I just heard BiSB scream "Kurtis Drummond" from afar, but it may have just been after-shocks from the epic fail that was Michigan's 2013 season)

Is it Timberwolf or Timberwolve? Honest question.

He gets an opportunity, and that's what matters.
JMo has always made the most of his opportunities. This MAY be a bridge too far, but if any undersized, less athletic center is capable of making the leap, then JMo is.
Worse comes to worse, he could probably play overseas. A high school classmate of mine who has a similar build as JMo (but likely with a lower basketball IQ) is currently playing pro overseas. Their standards are notably lower.
Either that, or JMo could use his Michigan engineering degree and make more money than most of the second rounders will make!

He will do well in OKC. They love running the floor and creating fast-paced offense, and that is exactly McGary's game. He will start off as a spark off the bench, but could easily become a starter with time.

A draw with Germany guarantees we are in.
A loss with a Portugal-Ghana draw, and we are in.
A loss with a Portugal win, and we are probably in.
A loss with a Ghana win, and things are a bit hairy, but we may still be in.

I love that Hatch is part of this group. He is going to be a great addition to the team, even if he never plays. He has overcome so much in life, and you can't help but be inspired by his story.
When the team is facing adversity, you just KNOW that Hatch will have something to say to get his teammates going.

That was how Bacari Alexander found out that McGary was a genuinely nice guy. Bacari talked to a groundskeeper at his school and got a story about a freshman bawling when the kid's mom dropped him off. McGary saw the kid, consoled him, and brought him into the school with McGary's friends. One of my favorite Michigan stories. (ESPN Insider - $)

My favorite bit they've done is YOUR BCS TEAM AS A DRUG.

That was harder than I anticipated. I DO NOT want to do huge damage to my body or have an affliction that doesn't allow me to enjoy life.
The belly button piercing probably should cost more, because it can easily be covered and certainly doesn't compare to losing both legs.
As for the App State loss....if it's possible to lose that game and STILL win the Championship, I will happily take it.

That was a public high school.
Just to repeat, private actors (which include universities) ARE NOT bound by the Bill of Rights.
Scenario #1: You are a government worker and your boss wants to fire you because you're ugly. You are ENTITLED to due process because your job counts as a property interest.
Scenario #2: You are a worker for any non-government employer and your boss wants to fire you because you're ugly. TOO BAD. You are NOT ENTITLED to due process.
Just to repeat, private actors are not obligated to give due process rights. Period.
Public actors are obligated to give due process rights.

They separated the football preview from the basketball/hockey preview. Last year you could pay $30 to buy both. This year you can't.
Also probably some fatigue from the football team sucking balls, but the separation (which was done to cover costs) definitely slowed things down.
