well that's just, like, your opinion, man

...rooting for that school - unless of course that school is Michigan, which is a totally different situation.
|1 hour 9 min ago||This is a little earlier than previously planned||
Is that right?
|5 days 6 hours ago||I don't have a general moment that comes to mind, but...||
...I wish I'd understood earlier that being cynical doesn't make you right. And I wish I'd started excercising and taking care of myself physically earlier.
|5 days 21 hours ago||Holy crap||
That happened fast.
|1 week 18 hours ago||The Nation of Islam (Farrakhan's group)...||
...is very different than the rest of the Islamic world. They're arguably not even Muslims.
This is just one of many problems with your statement, which is based in so much inaccuracy that I almost didn't know where to start.
|1 week 20 hours ago||^^^||
This pretty much sums it up if you're the president.

|1 week 21 hours ago||I'll risk wading into slightly political waters||
Given that terrorism is a tactic, a "war on terror" doesn't make a lot of sense.
|1 week 21 hours ago||This may not be the place to get into it, but...||
...you're almost necessarily going to find that they're young men who are mentally ill* and/or facing poor life prospects (at least as they see things). They feel - and possibly are - alienated from society as a whole.
Even members of genuinely oppressed minorities usually aren't willing to kill or be killed to make a political point. A person generally needs to feel like he's not giving up much
*This is not to say most people with mental illness are dangerous. They are not.

Turkey gets an empowered Erdogan, as you say, or an unelected government.
|1 week 4 days ago||Oh wow...||
...I'm going to say Notre Dame mostly because I hope it's Notre Dame.
|1 week 5 days ago||Thanks, Matt||
If you had to guess at who will fill out Michigan's class (and if you're comfortable doing this), who do you think it will be?
|1 week 5 days ago||How did he look otherwise?||
|1 week 6 days ago||I believe Michigan football would have won the Nat'l title...||
...if Wagner had been this tall last year.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Jackie Joyner Kersee has to be up there, as people have noted||
She won three gold, one silver, and two bronze medals in the Olympics in the heptathlon and the long jump. She still has the top six scores in the heptathlon and the second best long jump. She also played a bit of pro basketball.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Mr. Robot is maybe the best show in TV||
Season Two is about to start. I'd watch Season One first, because Season Two likely won't make much sense otherwise.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Yes||
He has done us a great service in return for no tangible reward that I know of.
|4 weeks 7 hours ago||This is a worthy dream||
Miles gave him an unconditional release, so this is possible.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||This is welcome news||
Thanks for posting.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||And what was there before there was space?||
What is non-space?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Huzzah!||
This is a very nice addition. I'm cautiously optimistic about next year and the year after.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I think he's much more of a slasher than a shooter||
I think he's a decent shooter, but that doesn't seem to be his game. He will bring athleticism to the table, though.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Cain or Matthews but not both?||
I've wonder if Cain and Matthews are mutually exclusive. They're simlar, and as Ace noted Xavier landing a similar player seemingly caused Cain to drop them.
I assume Michigan would take both. It would be great to land a PG, Cain, Matthews, and Young to go with Poole. But Cain might not see it that way.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||That is a fair critique overall to some extent||
But I don't see how that applies here. Baruti didn't score well enough on the English test.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I imagine no one will believe this, but...||
...I went to school with a guy whose family owned a lawnmower manufacturing company. I realize this sounds utterly fantastic.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Sad news||
Hopefully the champ pulls through. It's almost impossible to imagine an athlete today having the cultural impact that Ali did.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||This is not a shot at the OP:||
We should leave one of these up so people know it's been discussed and debunked.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||All of their children will be the MVP of the NBA...||
...at least once.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||I think the question is what you want for your kid||
Good genes and good opportunities can make someone a scholarship athlete (not necessarily D1). That's not bad at all. But you'll need pretty great genes to play pro sports.
There is a fascinating book called The Sports Gene by a guy named David Epstein if anyone wants to read more about genetics and sports.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks as always for posting - good stuff||
Young must be one of the most important players on Michigan's board for '17. The four spot in '17-'18 is set to be DJ Wilson and a bunch of broom handles taped together as of now.
