I'm gonna tell you about how much..."fun" you're gonna have this season.
|5 days 14 hours ago||I've been doing CrossFit||
On and off for about two years. I really have to say that it's an individual experience and no one can really quantify what happens. On the one hand, I've enjoyed it, and I've really been focusing on building my Olympic lifts, but it's not my kool-aid, swimming is. My wife, on the other hand, really got into it, lost a lot of weight, built up to pull-ups and completing Murph RX, and dead lifting over 300 lbs. She's never been seriously hurt, either. My box owner lost over 120 lbs doing it and her husband is extremely fit. Their daughter is a nationally ranked junior Olympic lifter. I've seen how well it can work.

Mitch broke the law by smoking the weed.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||And whose fault is that?||
Why on earth should a kid who can throw a ball really hard or run a 4.4 40 yd get to have different rules in admission standards than people who can't? A lot of really smart kids don't get into their dream schools because they didn't have the qualifications to pass admissions and they worked really hard in school. Then you have the NCAA, which lets complete morons go and get a free college education, even if they barely stay eligible in high school, because they're athletically talented.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I'm getting to the point||
Where I am fine with paying elite players. With one caveat. Those elite players must meet the admission standards of the school, not the NCAA. If the players were all scoring 29 - 36 on their ACTs and holding a 3.3 - 4.0 GPA through high school, then sure. They deserve to get paid. But frankly, because of the difference of admission standards, that is major compensation. This issue wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the NBA and the NFL putting a time gap for draft eligibility and not developing their own minor leagues for underage athletes.

At it's finest.

Didn't really have many offers before Michigan offered, and afterward, we found out that some major B1G and SEC programs offered. I would like to think that this staff knows talent when they see it, and they don't have to rely solely on "other offers" and "# of stars" to evaluate who they want in the program.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I've been a registered donor||
Since my father-in-law got sick and passed away in 2010 from leukemia. I've asked people to get on the donor list many times. To me, it's not much different than registering as an organ donor at the DMV.

Belichick has been the head coach of the Patriots since 2000
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I would like to think||
That this might make some recruits sit up and take notice.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||So?||
Don't click on articles about soccer.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||The most popular sport in the world||
Is futbol. In fact, our version of football is the grandchild of soccer.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Well||
That's five minutes that I'll never get back. Terrible.
|10 weeks 10 hours ago||There is||
A professional league.

Testament to her abilities.
|10 weeks 10 hours ago||Honestly||
Based on her athleticism and her impact in major games, she a contender.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||I've got to admit||
This sounds incredibly creepy.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||I always appreciate skepticism||
But have you ever belonged to a box? Worked or focused on gaining a technique? Listened to success stories from CrossFit?
|13 weeks 1 day ago||I like both||
For very different reasons. However, I'm giving the nod to Harry Potter, and I'll explain why.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||So||
Scheduling the perennial bottom feeder of a Big 4 conference isn't much better than scheduling a DI-AA team.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||So he says he tried it once mid-March?||
I'm all for legalizing weed, but that was really stupid. Even if he knew he wasn't going to play, this isn't his first rodeo in the tournament. He knew he could get tested.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||That is||
Exceptional understanding of punctuation.
|17 weeks 9 hours ago||When a Letter of Intent||
Is simply an invitation to try out for the team, I would think that player's rights are the last concern of the program.
|17 weeks 19 hours ago||Gee, pessimistic are we?||
Our anxiety with football centered on the offense. We didn't have much to complain about with the defense when it went from the worst unit in major college football to in the consistent upper echelons of productivity.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||So you're telling me||
That you made your best decisions when you were 17? That you never looked at your parents and went, "You were right all along."
|17 weeks 1 day ago||I don't really get it||
This isn't a situation where she is stopping him because she's not a fan of the Spartans or because she's an insane person. She obviously has legitimate reasons to say that she doesn't want her son at Michigan State. It can't be the academics - while they're not on par with Michigan's, for all of the blustering we do about school quality, Michigan State is not a BAD school as far as an education goes.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Michigan is the better team||
The athletes prevailed today. Calipari babysits NBA players for one season, Beilein turns college players into NBA players.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Who is wishing for a 4 point play?||
|17 weeks 3 days ago||I actually muted it this time||
Between the refs, the commentators, and the fans, I'm not drunk enough to tune it out.

Is terrible. No wonder they're attacking the boards.
