|4 days 21 hours ago||So Morris will play this year||
It's hard for me to imagine that not being necessary at some point. How many seasons do you have when your QB isn't nicked up for at least a few plays during meaningful minutes?
|1 week 15 hours ago||Things like this are likely to happen||
There are good reasons to go to Alabama, whether we like it or not, and there are good reasons to go to other schools too. It's a long way to signing day.
|1 week 1 day ago||Burke, Carter-Williams, and "analytics"||
When you're looking for Burke's wallet in the bag, it's the one that says "Bad MFer." Carter-Williams' doesn't say that. That is all the "analytics" one needs, I think.
|1 week 4 days ago||That's just not true||
All jokes are not the same because all groups are not identically situated. Are you really threatened if you hear a joke about white people or men? (I'm assuming you're a white man - maybe I'm wrong.) I am a white guy, and I am totally and utterly unthreatened by such jokes because I stand in my white-man shoes at the top of the racial-sexual pyramid...Also, Gee said that you can't trust Catholics (or was it just the ND Catholics?). Being untrustworthy isn't even a stereotype of Catholics.
|1 week 4 days ago||That's interesting (no sarcasm)||
Both WWI and WWII seem to have had moments when armies were totally unprepared for the technological advances in warfare that had been made since the prior major war. I knew that about WWI, not so much about WWII.
|1 week 4 days ago||I'm not even going to criticize this||
I think the person who put it together had a stroke of some kind. I'm genuinely worried.
|1 week 4 days ago||I can't believe I'm about to say this for several reasons, but..||
The fact that Gee had to step down because of those comments seems insane to me. As someone who comes from an Irish-Catholic family (on my father's side, anyway), I feel well-positioned enough to say that anti-Catholic bigotry is no longer a threat to anyone in the U.S., and Gee was obviously joking. And ND is a pain in the ass. And the SEC and Bret Bielema don't need to be on anyone's list of folks who need protecting...This is the height (or depth) of fake offense.

"We will sometimes slap you on the wrist."
|1 week 5 days ago||I will be more creative if Hand doesn't commit to Michigan||
For example, I've heard that he can't use chopsticks worth a damn and always uses a fork when he's eating Chinese food. I'm just not sure I want a kid like that on the team...
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Giving him too much credit?||
I thought from the video that Hibbert was lampooning the use of "no homo" in the same way that someone says "that's what she said" with the understanding that it's stupid. Perhaps I'm being too easygoing, but that was my initial reaction...As for calling the media "mother-f*****s," you have to remember that most sports journalists do, in fact, have sex with their mothers.

|2 weeks 4 days ago||Looney||
He seems wide open. It seems correct to say that Duke is the leader right now, but I don't think he's anywhere near ready to decide...This is all just from reading UMHoops.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Exactly||
As a former Kansan, we are perhaps hicks, but we are not hillbillies.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||wow - credit to the softball team||
Having two-thirds of the All Big Ten team is a hell of an accomplishment.
|6 weeks 9 hours ago||I hope...||
...the world greets this book with a collective yawn. I have a feeling Webber is going to air all the dirty Michigan laundry he ever heard of so he can say, "I was just part of a corrupt system." ..Also,what does Chris Webber have to contribute to anything at this point? He stopped thinking and wasted his intellectual potential years ago. He's a damn NBA announcer. Shouldn't he be talking about how awesome Lebron is? ...I realize this is really harsh, but I am really sick of Chris Webber haunting the program. He has a bunch of money and an easy life. And that's all he ever wanted as far as I can tell. Leave Michigan alone.
|6 weeks 23 hours ago||Bennie and Biff||
From the link: The University of Michigan Athletic Department reports that Biff and Bennie “grew larger and more ferocious,” leading Yost to conclude, "It was obvious that the Michigan mascots had designs on the Michigan men toting them, and those designs were by no means friendly."
|6 weeks 5 days ago||There already is a Tim Brando sex tape||
That or a guy at the bus stop lied to me and owes me my $30 back.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Sad but true||
New Balance makes some sneakers in the U.S., but I don't know about basketball/football shoes.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Good point||
If he doesn't pick Michigan, I'll say, "Ah, we didn't want some mercenary kid who's just going to leave for the NBA as soon as he can anway."
He he picks Michigan, I'll say, "Woo-hoo! Let's enjoy this while it lasts!"
It's important to be adaptable.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The NFL...||
...as fun as watching robots on an assembly line build a Honda.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||of course||
That was what threw me off.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Gerry DiNardo||
He seems like a nice guy. That's the most I can say about his ideas for divisions and his understanding of the conference.
As for Kevon Looney, can you imagine that kid playing the four in Coach Beilein's offense? I'm going to have to work hard not to think too much about it, as I don't want my hopes dashed if he goes elsewhere.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I understand what you'res saying, but...||
...the NFL is remarkably strict about these things. They have someone at each game making sure that uniforms are w/in NFL guidelines. A player can be fined for having his socks too low, for example.
|7 weeks 13 hours ago||I feel very lucky these days||
It's nice when prospective Michigan players are guys who you'd like no matter their team. Both football and MBB seem to recruit a lot of said dudes.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Perhaps||
I asked my cat, but he withheld comment.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Nice||
The team's depth needs to be re-stocked.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||The Collins thread||
I thought it mostly walked a fine line.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I think...||
...this thread is likely to be political.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Good for him||
I hope this is looked back on as a great day for sports. It should be...I wish him the best.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||OSU will be very tough, IMHO||
Ross and Thompson will help make up for the loss of Thomas, and they'll probably be better defensively than they were this year, b/c Thomas was their worst defender.
