I, for one, am not worried that you are a bad dude. But I do worry about what a bad dude might be prompted to do with information from a recruit.
|1 hour 50 min ago||that's good||
Here is a friendly suggestion: posting the whole thing ran the risk of people perceiving McDowell as rude - which wasn't your intent, I realize. Just saying "I haven't heard much from him, and you guys know what I think when that happens" would have accomplished the same thing as posting the conversation but not opened McDowell up to criticism. I think you don't want to run the risk of ever making a guy look bad even when it's not your intent. People take thus stuff way too seriously - see all the negativity that went Hand's way after he committed. Better to open guys up to that as little as possible.

I have never seen anyone ask that of Sam Webb, Tom VH, or Steve Lorenz.
|2 hours 30 min ago||I don't think the issue is that it's negative||
I believe the poster was referring to the fact that he's that much more exposed to the public when you post the whole thing than he would be if you just gave a brief synopsis...EDIT: beaten to the puch.
|5 hours 8 min ago||Einstein said this of Gandhi, but I think it applies here too:||
"Generations to come, it may well be, will scarce believe that such a man as this one ever in flesh and blood walked upon this Earth.”
|6 hours 10 min ago||to add to that re: one hour||
I've worked with survivors of sexual assault who waited for years before coming forward. It's not something one enjoys announcing to the world.
|8 hours 17 min ago||The fair takeaway here||
Winston shouldn't be viewed as a rapist, but the woman shouldn't be viewed as a false accuser either. As Wendy says, the ability to make a case =/= proof that the allege crime didn't happen.
|8 hours 40 min ago||I realize you're likely joking, but...||
That sort of statement is often used to shoot down the notion of consent being more than not saying "no." But there are of course ways a person can indicate a desire to have sex that don't involve a mechanical recitation of the statement "I would like to have intercourse with you now."
|8 hours 43 min ago||Yes||
This is something my OSU friend and I talk about a lot. I believe the SEC is the best conference, but can it be that much better if A&M and Missouri can waltz in and do what they've done? I say no.
|8 hours 54 min ago||Good advice and probably good policy||
It's probably a good thing if "consent" means more than simply the absence of "no."
|10 hours 13 min ago||ESPN||
This is one of the big reasons ESPN takes so much time and effort to crap on the Big Ten. The BTN is a competitor that the worldwide leader in sh*tty sports coverage loves to hurt.
|12 hours 14 min ago||You may well be right re: being too hard on himself||
That's different than lacking sufficient competitive drive, though.
|12 hours 31 min ago||How do I assert myself while still being a good teammate?||
That's a question that some guys take a long time to find the answer to. Some guys don't ask that question, and they seem like great competitors, but they're also the kinds of guys whose teams are never great b/c they dominate the ball so much. Robinson has maybe too much of a conscience, but it doesn't mean he doesn't want to win.
|12 hours 34 min ago||true enough re: Rome...||
I'm glad to see McGary say they're soft but also have perspective. You don't lose the national player of the year and another NBA first round pick - especially if those guys are your guards - and just pick up like nothing happened. Losing your backcourt is a massive blow to any team. I'm optimistic that this team will improve. I'm especially optimistic that LeVert found a new level of confidence Tuesday night. That was his first big game against a good team, and he could be the guy who make the offense go until Walton matures.
|23 hours 31 min ago||I don't know||
I think "Twitter" equals "Great Fountain of Bullshit" and thus is, in a sense, a source.
|23 hours 47 min ago||Mack Brown||
What did he say about this? He seems like a reasonably important piece of the puzzle here.
|1 day 18 min ago||F this bullsh*t||
That's a bunch of godd*mn crap...Seriously, though, I've lived in both Massachusetts and Ohio, and ther is *no* way Ohioans aren't more courteous than those in Mass overall. This study is just a small slice of life.
|1 day 8 hours ago||McGary||
He hasn't practiced much, of course, so I think we can be reasonably optimistic that he'll improve.
|1 day 8 hours ago||^^^^||
|1 day 8 hours ago||this may just be a fan thing to say, but...||
You mention his motor, and I'd like to see him focus on crashing the offensive glass. That seems like a relatively easy way to make a mark on offense.
|1 day 8 hours ago||LeVert to pg?||
That may need to be the near future. If teams are going to play four on four by face guarding Stauskas - and why wouldn't you after last night? - Michigan has to have someone who can do more than finish. LeVert has been inconsistent this year, but he can at least get past his man...Another thought: I, for one, underestimated what the loss of Burke and Hardaway would mean. I feel like a dumb dummy.
|2 days 3 hours ago||What I think we know (or at least sort of know)||
Patrick Omameh majored in engineering, so there is no hard-and-fast rule that you can't do it. Da'Shawn Hand, though, sure seems to have been steered away from engineering. This, combined with people saying that they've known U of M players to be steered into easier majors, leads people (I think I'm right about this) to believe that Michigan attempts as an institution to get guys to pick comparatively easy majors but at the same time does't flat-out bar them from choosing harder majors.

What's it like? Do you have flying cars yet?
|2 days 6 hours ago||Here are a whole bunch of them courtesy of Wolverine Historian||
Skip ahead to 3:33, and you'll see John Navarre catch a touchdown pass.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Same here||
I paid little attention to non-Heiko questions.
|2 days 7 hours ago||the key word was *relatively*||
I'm not saying he received nothing...We would all likely agree that Miguel Cabrera was underpaid if he made $1 million per year despite the fact that, for most people, that's a hell of a lot of money...All of that said, I do have to wonder how much a general studies degree is worth. It bothers me that Hand, for example, wasn't given a crack at engineering at Michigan.
|2 days 9 hours ago||The one flaw in this...||
...is the assumption that Michigan knows how to improve the football team but just isn't doing for whatever reason.
|2 days 9 hours ago||I hear you||
I'm good with Hall running stairs until he pukes, but I see the argument for making him sit out part of a game...My problem with Feinstein is that he calls Meyer "despicable" and "everything that is wrong with college sports." I wouldn't buy the "I'm just a sports writer" defense from Feinstein when he's essentially saying Meyer is a bad person. That's saying a hell of a lot more than "Meyer is making a mistake by not sitting Hall."
|2 days 9 hours ago||I think...||
...they should focus on the things I listed or other big issues. This just wasn't worth writing about, IMO. I reminds me of the "news" about George H.W. Bush (no endorsement implied or not implied) not liking broccoli. The man was the president of the United States, and that's what people were writing about?!
|2 days 9 hours ago||I wasn't...||
...trying to start that argument. I'm just saying that it's something worth discussing - moreso than Hall flipping us all the bird.
