|12 hours 14 min ago||That's...no||
Black power does not and largely has not involved hating white people (though I'm sure you can find an exception if you like, because the term has been applied to several ideologies). And the players had no intention of broadcasting an anti-white message. In fact, you can see a white coach with his fist up in one of the photos.
I suggest you listen to the a podcast from this morning in which Sam Webb talks about interviewing Khalid Hill about the matter. It's on the WTKA website.
|15 hours 4 min ago||Michigan wins 28-12||
|16 hours 30 min ago||I think Saturday's game probably would end up...||
...being one of the more extreme results if you replayed that game 100 times. The turnovers (particularly the fumble) and the dropped punt snap created a day in which nearly everything that could go wrong against MSU did go wrong.
To be clear, I'm not saying MSU is better than Wisconsin. I'm just saying that I think that game was likely not indicative of the gap between them.
|1 day 17 hours ago||That is unfortunate for all||
I hope he had an Ed Davis or Devin Gardner type injury his freshman year.
Also, does the board not like the Detroit News? I was only aware of our dislike of the Free Press.
|1 day 17 hours ago||I can't imagine being a QB recruit and picking...||
...Kelly over Harbaugh. Harbaugh laughed when Speight threw his interception against Hawi'i. Kelly, as we all know, would have yelled in his face and nearly had a stroke.
|1 day 17 hours ago||He's a B+ coach IMO||
What he did at Cincinnati was remarkable. His offenses merit fear when he has a good QB. And he recruits very well.
But he's too dependent on his DC to produce a good defense to be a great HC. And his ND teams never seem to coalesce into something greater than the sum of their parts.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Miles is a recruiter and a motivator||
I join others in not seeing him as an analyst.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Griese seemingly chalked the lack of a warning up...||
...to the fact that the ref ran into someone (rather than someone just being in the white). I don't know whether that's the rule, but I think that's what he was saying.

|4 days 14 hours ago||ah - good||
It works for me if it works for the youngsters.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Is this something the young'uns will like?||
I know nothing about this guy. I'm still waiting for Patsy Cline to make a new record.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Agreed||
The OC is Harbaugh, Drevno, and Fisch. It's possible Drevno is overwhelmed by his co-OC responsibilities, but it seems unlikely.
|5 days 15 hours ago||It's a very tough issue||
What do you do with someone who admits to being attracted to children* when there is no evidence of that person ever having acted on that attraction? As I said, there simply must be people who have that attraction who go their whole lives without ever acting on it.
But I've also seen firsthand the devastiation caused by child sexual abuse. It's an extremely hard case of having to balance freedom and safety.
*It's worth noting too that there are pedophiles, pederasts, and people who are attracted to young opposite-sex teenagers (and people who are a mix of these). Sandusky seems to have targeted young men but not young boys. A grim distinction, I realize.
|5 days 15 hours ago||I don't think comes entirely down to...||
...how you want to define mental illness. This act shows terrible judgment, but does terrible judgment inherently involve mental illness? We could debate that forever.
I don't think the attraction itself is an illness as such. People have all sorts of impulses to do destructive things that they don't act on.
|5 days 16 hours ago||I believe that's correct||
I am not a doctor of any sort, but I have dealt professionally with pedophiles. I think it is an orientation, like you say. I don't think sterilization or anything else can change it.
There must be people who are attracted to children/adolescents who don't ever act their attractions, but that's as good as it gets.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Are you saying that with sarcasticality?||
I can't tell.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Hey now||
Willie's guitar works just fine.
|6 days 17 hours ago||The key was in my fist.||
My fist was in my pocket.
|1 week 1 day ago||A very important question:||
Is the title the first Morrissey reference in a while?
|1 week 3 days ago||Same stuff||
I'm having a hard time being surprised by a team coming into the Big House with more life than Michigan or a spread team with inferior talent tearing them up. We've seen this episode many times.
|1 week 3 days ago||It could matter||
A one-loss Michigan team is likely to need a strong SOS.
|1 week 3 days ago||Dear Wisconsin||
Please do not lose to Georgia State.
|1 week 4 days ago||I'm not arguing Trammell shouldn't be in the Hall||
I'm just saying Larkin was better.
|1 week 4 days ago||Larkin played in Cincinnati||
That's not a big market.
Larkin's career line: .295 BA, .371 OBP, .815 Slugging Percentgage, 198 HRS, 366 SB, 9 Silver Sluggers, 3 Gold Gloves (with several more lost to Ozzie Smith's reputation)
Trammell's career line: .285 BA, .352 OBP, .767 Slugging Percentage, 185 HRS, 236 SB, 3 Silver Sluggers, 4 Gold Gloves
Larkin eclipsed Trammell at everything but Gold Gloves won.
|1 week 4 days ago||Larkin was nearly as good as Trammell?||
Now see here, old bean - Larkin made twelve All-Star teams to Trammell's six. And he won an NL MVP award.
|1 week 4 days ago||Just saw the wallpaper for the first time||
That is A+ work.
|1 week 4 days ago||co-sign||
I'm happy to be a Beilein apologist. I realize he's not perfect, but neither is anyone else.
|1 week 4 days ago||Well...||
...the addition of Donlon, the chance for Walton and Irvin to be healthy, Wagner's added muscle, and the additions of the freshman big men all might help the defense.
|1 week 5 days ago||I follow basketball recruiting reasonably closely, and...||
...I don't see why this is cause for such alarm. Izzo is going to land good players. I don't remember anyone pegging this guy for Michigan. There are still good players on the board. And Michigan has already landed some good players.
