|17 hours 9 min ago||Congrats!||
I thought of you when I saw the news.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Edit:||
Never mind. You said college, not all football. I have nothing.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Does that really count as the soccer-playing world?||
People have been paying a lot of attention to this World Cup here in the States, but soccer remains behind football, basketball, baseball, and hockey (at least). There are sports riots in the US - they're just not soccer riots.

As a person of German descent, I am aware on an intellectual level that you are wrong, but I feel nothing about this.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Is there somewhere in the soccer-playing world...||
...where that doesn't happen?
|3 days 16 hours ago||To somewhat echo BiSB...||
I am good with him coaching in a box with a fox as long as the offense performs well.
|3 days 17 hours ago||So sorry to read that||
I'm very sorry to read that. That's terrible news. My heart goes out to you and your family. I wish I had something better to say. Sounds like you had a great dad.
HTTV and Mgostuff is very small compared to this, so don't worry about that. Take care of yourself. We here in the peanut gallery can entertain ourselves while you're dealing with this.
|3 days 18 hours ago||I look forward to the day when...||
...Mitch's success isn't bittersweet. We won't have a player quite like him again.
|4 days 6 hours ago||I certainly don't want to diminish one of your points||
Fuck Notre Dame indeed.
|4 days 10 hours ago||I was joking||
I'm tired, and the thought of football played by large lizards and giant bears entertained me for a moment.
|4 days 10 hours ago||Yes, but...||
The game was played mostly by dinosaurs and cave bears until 1975, so I'm not sure how much we can take from that.
|4 days 10 hours ago||yeah...||
I wanted to push the period covered out to thirty years, which seems like a perfectly reasonable arbitrary number.
|4 days 14 hours ago||I don't mean to say introverted people can't be leaders||
But I do think some types of leadership - like calling guys out for not trying their best - do not come naturally to them. This isn't to say an introvert can't learn to do things like that, because I think one can.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Those sound plausible||
DG strikes me as a naturally introverted guy - and a conscientious one. I don't say that as a knock at all, but being someone who is hyper-aware of his own flaws makes it hard to also be someone who puts failure behind him quickly and tells his teammates to buck up.
I like DG a lot and have high hopes for him this year, but I can see how he might not be a natural leader in some respects.

1. Build a hot air balloon out of beaver pelts;
2. Sail to the moon on a ship made of dreams;
3. Help two crazy kids fall in love;
4. Help us all fall in love - with life;
5. Dance, dance, dance.
Or he should be fired.
|1 week 2 days ago||You guys act like Michigan has played App State before||
I have no memory of that at all. Never happened. I'm interested to learn more about this upstart program from...West Virginia, is it?
|1 week 3 days ago||Then I think we're headed for uber-small||
If Donnal is a center, who is left to play the four that has any size?
|1 week 3 days ago||I don't know||
I want to like the World Cup. I really do. But it's hard to like when guys react to being hit on the shin like they've just been shot. It's hard for me to put aside my midwestern/football play-through-pain outlook.
|1 week 4 days ago||But...||
...how will you know whether the defense plans to be physical and aggressive this year?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||hell yes!||
I'll always hate the way he had to leave, but this is great. He can help OKC win a title.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Great news!||
Very nice to have two straight years with top ten picks. Calipari takes NBA talent and just doesn't mess it up. Coach Beilein takes guys who you think might someday play overseas and helps turn them into lottery picks.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Well deserved!||
I wouldn't trade this group for anyone.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||stones and glass houses and such||
Didn't Jalen Rose's coach, Perry Watson, become an assistant at Michigan at the same time the Fab Five arrived?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yep||
It's seemed like he's been moving away from Michigan, so I'm happy with the idea of him ending up outside the Big Ten.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I tend to believe that such studies...||
...say whatever the entity who paid for them wants them to say, but maybe I'm being overly cynical.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I was thinking the same thing||
I don't know what the testing program for marijuana is in the NBA, but I'm willing to go out on a limb and suggest it's not rigorous.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I suggest we post pictures of bears before the delete||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Just beaten to the punch||
The thread below this covers the same thing.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The inability of athletes to sell their likenesses||
As others have pointed out, athletes are in fact the only members of the student body who cannot sell their likenesses. Didn't the actress from Harry Potter go to Brown or some other Ivy League school? She was also selling her likeness in advertisements when she did that, IIRC.
