Exceptional understanding of punctuation.

Is simply an invitation to try out for the team, I would think that player's rights are the last concern of the program.
|2 weeks 22 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.
|2 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."

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.
|2 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.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Who is wishing for a 4 point play?||
|2 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.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Horford body language||
Is terrible. No wonder they're attacking the boards.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Mute time||
Varsity vs junior varsity on rebounding? I'm about to puke.

I would be ecstatic to make this in a week. He makes more in a month than I do in a year.
|3 weeks 2 hours ago||The point I'm making||
Is that the players have already been given opportunities for an education that ordinary people cannot receive based on their ability to do something else. The University does not HAVE to bend their rigorous academic standards for them, they choose to. And seeing as how 95% of all athletic departments lose money and it has to be subsidized from the tuition of the non-athletes, the university is not benefiting from their athletic department. They choose to be DI and offer scholarships. They could be DIII, where the athletes play without athletic compensation and have to get into school per the requirements of the school, not the NCAA.
|3 weeks 12 hours ago||Well that settles it.||
As soon as these athletes are required to meet the academic standards of the university that they want to play for, they'll retract.

Make kickers convert the extra point rugby style. The kick can be made from any distance, but it has to be in the line of where the touchdown was scored.

Has a form-fitting face mask available. They use it mostly because standing 60 - 45 ft away from a matter means that bang-bang plays are likely to happen. I coach high school softball. I don't require my corners to wear them, but I do require them to wear mouth guards. My pitchers aren't required, but it's the only position I've ever fully justified the facemask to. So the facemasks do exist.

"Basketball is fun to play when we take a break from learning how to run the world."
|5 weeks 5 hours ago||His announcing||
At the National Championship absolutely disgusted me. He gave Fisher no true credit for the fantastic job he did rebuilding Florida State (who is tied with Oklahoma for most appearances in the title game), and proceeded to slobber and drool over the greatness of the conference, despite the fact that Alabama had just lost in the previous game, TAMU needed a miracle to escape DUKE, Iowa had LSU on the ropes, Florida didn't even qualify for a game, Ole Miss squeezed by Georgia Tech, and Georgia lost to Nebraska.

Would probably rather get a Michigan degree than get cut because a disgruntled fan is tired of losing.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Well it's pretty clear at this point||
That the Cavs should have tried a little harder to keep their superstar. They lucked into getting likely the best player of this century and screwed that up.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Tim Tebow||
Was one of the best dual threat quarterbacks to ever play. And he was built like a fullback. Maybe not the best guy to run an NFL offense, but you can't deny that he was a great leader when he was in college.

Hail! B1G Champs!

Are why you should probably listen to people who actually live in the state. Or have at least visited Columbus in this millennium.
|7 weeks 1 hour ago||Actually yes||
Data has shown that the number of altercations has increased since the banning of alcohol at collegiate athletic events.

Don't be rude or disrespectful and you won't have any problems. That's a lot of why things happen. I wear my Michigan gear in Columbus all the time, especially when I spend time with my in-laws. I've occasionally bantered but the usual question is why I'm a Michigan fan. Once I tell them, they usually back off of being disrespectful. Besides, the Arnold is a huge event. Most of the people in the area will be focused on things other than a football rivalry.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||But don't you remember??||
The World Cup, where Ireland beat Bulgaria even though Bulgaria's Seeker caught the Snitch?
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Congrats!!||
It's always nice to hear that a new Michigan man is born!
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Honestly that was my first thought||
Considering that in the next two years, Hoke will either have validated himself as a head coach or he will be on the hot seat. Pulling Harbaugh from the 49ers is a lot harder than pulling him from the Browns, and getting him back to the Midwest would have been a great insurance policy. But then again, with Brandon's undivided support of Hoke, even if Harbaugh was in the Midwest, it probably wouldn't make a difference.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||He's a good young quarterback||
I coach for a rival school in the conference and he was excellent in his game against us. He did have a high-profile target at TE but he had no problems with distribution or accuracy. He has a lot of upside. He was also thrown to the wolves after the starting QB was dismissed from the team midway through the season, so his maturity is accelerated. I'd hope that he gets an offer.
