Thankfully Michigan hasn't lost 50 scholarship players to attrition this year.

That shows his bias against Rodriguez. It is not uncommon for up and coming teams to get smoked in bowl games because that's the nature of it. The coach gets his team to overachieve and they get paired up with a more talented and better team in the bowl game.

"Not a great analyst" is just about the kindest way you could have said it.

Are gambling sites legal?

Hopefully Rudock will play so well that everyone learns to spell his name correctly.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Mathematically speaking one||
Mathematically speaking one team HAS to play 8 games, I think. How is this team determined?
|1 day 20 hours ago||Mainly July baseball. Too far||
Mainly July baseball. Too far from the start of the season to be interesting and too far from the end of the season to be tense. Just plain boring.
|1 day 21 hours ago||July is the worst month for||
July is the worst month for sports and it's not even close. So glad to almost be through with it.

While that is entirely possible it is hard to imagine what kind of news involving a hospital could possibly cause a marketing director to think "oh man I need to tell my social media team to tone it down on this subject before it comes out."

Oic. I skimmed through too quickly. That is odd.
Otoh it is so odd that it seems like you can't make it up.

Last night at 11:30pm would have been about 12 hrs after the suspensions were announced.

Probably because there are MSU and OSU fans who are patients if the UM health system? That part makes sense. I think the weird part is that this seems like a strange source for a news story like this to first come out.
|2 days 5 hours ago||We can keep joking about it||
We can keep joking about it but you know that in three years when they fire Del Rio Harbaugh's name will be all over the NFL media as the top candidate for the position.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Is it even worth it to ask||
Is it even worth it to ask about player/position competition, etc? They haven't even practiced yet with the coaches. How could that possibly have changed since the spring?
|2 days 6 hours ago||AFAIK those examples you||
AFAIK those examples you cited were trademarked by the individual, not their employer. This seems totally different.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Still seems like down the||
Still seems like down the road he could sue them on the basis of coercion or something if things fall apart (as has happened with every OSU coach in the last century or so).

We need a lawyer to weigh in on this. This seems unconstitutional.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Whiney underdog is Michigan||
Whiney underdog is Michigan State's entire identity. If they were to lose that identity they would be lost in the wilderness. He recognizes that and pushes it.
The unfortunate thing for MSU is that this makes it difficult for them to recruit truly elite talent, and you can't sustain a program for decades on that philosophy. They are good right now but this won't last forever.

Does that mean no Bacon today on 1050?

I believe it is only open May-September or something.

What a coincidence that movie is playing right now on AMC.

Now that's what I call a close encounter.
|2 days 21 hours ago||I kind of understand the line||
I kind of understand the line of thinking that basically says "you can only improve so much in one year." The thing is, we were all saying that after Hoke/Mattison took over for Rrod/GERG, I believe the rhetoric around here was "Mattison would be a genius savant if they can improve into the top 50 on defense." They finished 16th. We also said that about Urban at OSU, a team that had gone 6-7 in 2011 and was ranked around 110 in total offense, and look how that turned out. I'm not predicting an undefeated season but elite coaches can turn things around very quickly.

It's funny how Buckeye fans accuse US of worshipping our coach like he's a deity.

Beaver. But strangely it smelled like fish.
|2 days 23 hours ago||I can't stand listening to||
I can't stand listening to Huge most of the time, but somehow he seems to do very good interviews.
|2 days 23 hours ago||Okay but if you put a "solid"||
Okay but if you put a "solid" QB on last year's team who has a very good TO ratio, does that make a difference in our record? There is also the fact that the position coaches were massively upgraded at almost every spot.
Also, more importantly, in any other season preview if you were to say "mostly the same football team" (i.e. tons of returning starters) it would foreshadow a HUGE improvement in overall performance, but for some reason for many this is somehow a bad thing.
I will add, many seem to think there is no talent on this team. Look at the offer lists of the guys in the 2 deep. Most of them, if they had not come here, would have gone to places like Ohio State, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, MSU among other schools who seem to do a great job finding talent. It will take some molding but talent is definitely there.

The old Shea Stadium. It sucked.
Not really much else to add.

I never realized that Crystal Ballz were so strictly regulated.
