College basketball is not the only avenue for professional level talent. Europe is a viable option for professional level talent. If someone can't make it professionally in Europe or doesn't want to try then they can enjoy their well paid internship in which they are a cog in machine that makes a lot of money of which they will see very little. It's an opportunity not an end point.

The NBA isn't an option but Europe is an option. It's not college basketball or bust if a player is good enough. The NCAA is the more convenient and easier option. The price of that convenience is tuition instead of a game check.

I just don't understand why someone would intentionally use an inferior vehicle. Personally, I'd choose the highest quality and therefore safest option since my family is my first concern.
|17 weeks 10 hours ago||The lack of self awareness||
The lack of self awareness which is evident in your post is comical.

You answered your own question.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||The "article" is a disservice||
The "article" is a disservice to everyone involved. It is short and shallow.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||If he drops to the late||
If he drops to the late lottery it may be better for his career. I doubt this affects his stock much. His struggles lately on the court are a different matter.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Both parties look bad after||
Both parties look bad after an incident like this one. Smart should have kept his cool. He should be suspended. The superfan looks bad and should be barred from attending games. This isn't his first incident and he isn't attending pro games. He shouldn't be getting involved with amateur athletes.
|2 years 50 weeks ago||When does the phrase mean||
When does the phrase mean what people think it means?
(% of pop misuing term or phrase) x (# of years misused) = New meaning/additional meaning officially added
Perhaps a result of 5 or above should be the benchmark. If 50% of users use a term incorrectly for 10 years then .5x10=5 and a new meaning is added to the definition.
I'm sure an interested and industrious fellow could create a proper equation or link to one that already exists.

You don't have to agree with people being offended by swear words but you should be able to comprehend the position.
|3 years 13 weeks ago||The board has been too||
The board has been too bi-polar lately. It seems every thread is filled with idiotic insults toward thing X or idiotic support for thing X.
How do you have a sports discussion with no criticism?
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Would it kill you to show||
Would it kill you to show respect to other posters on the board? You managed to throw an insult into almost every one of your posts in the discussion you were having. The other poster committed no offense other than disagreeing with you. He could make the same brick wall comment about you.

^This. Regardless of which side of which argument you fall on.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Can that conversation stay in||
Can that conversation stay in the other thread? Take Mr. Brown's post for what it is and leave it at that.

Boeckman was not mediocre. He was awful. There is also a reason teams don't throw the Hail Mary every down. The desperation play can work but rarely does.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||No one playing for Michigan||
No one playing for Michigan is a kid. Also, criticizing is not the same as being disrespectful.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||My unsolicited advice is for||
My unsolicited advice is for you to take a minute and do some research (how interviews work whether entertainment or not) and then take another minute and flesh out what discussion you are actually trying to have. If you want to have a real discussion you might also want to leave out statements such as "...I do know that NCAA football is little more than indentured servitude." Those comments lead down different paths than what you appear to want to discuss. Also, I am not trying to be a jerk.

You are delusional.

I find Todd to be the most disturbing character. Walt had his supposed good reasons to go down his dark path. He does awful things but appears to struggle through it. Todd doesn't seem to struggle through anything. He takes the bad thing that is happening in a given scene and takes it to a further extreme while also appearing to be a blank slate of emotion. Walt and the skindheads seem to understand what they are while Todd dosn't seem to be aware of how dark a path he has chosen.

|3 years 18 weeks ago||Perhaps the rest of the||
Perhaps the rest of the community reserves their concern for issues that are actually issues. You have worked yourself up over a harmless skit. If you find this skit border-line offensive then I don't see how you can visit MGoBlog at all. Many of the memes on this site stereotype other groups for comedic value. Your last four sentences or so make it seem as though you have never visited the site before.
You may also want to reconsider what the role of comedy is or can be in society.

The first school I thought of when I saw this was The U. A team's uniform should remind you of their school not another school.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||I wish I could upvote you.||
I wish I could upvote you. Your use of Semipro was perfect.

I hope that this station doesn't turns out to be a good alternative. I expect it to be more of the same.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||But he's a New York Times||
But he's a New York Times Best Seller!
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Yes. People are constantly||
Yes. People are constantly ripping RCMB and the like for their low class approach but the OP isn't any better. Posts like that aren't exactly uncommon either.
Also, what is the point of posting Feel Free to Delete? The mods will delete a thread whether or not someone gives them the OK.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||I fail to see how 'ruin porn'||
I fail to see how 'ruin porn' is a moral issue. Detroiters, and possibly others in failing areas, are really sensitive about because obviously. No one else need feel guilt over the issue.

I think it's lame even for the academies. The names are for the fans.

The draft won't be entertaining either.
