See Gordon crying as he crossed home plate. Can't imagine the emotions playing tonight.

Don't we all wish we reach that level of career success, to no longer have to go look for the trolls of the internet. Congrats to Brian on such success (and no I'm not being condescending).

Don't think the AP will be anything like this, but based on resume and best wins (especially road wins)...
|16 weeks 1 day ago||This year vs next year||
I think the OP knew this... He didn't say "this year" as in 2016. Rather "next year" referencing 2017 season.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Very true regarding world||
Very true regarding world football transfer rumors. The player I think that could have the most impact is Varane, and also Krychowiak. He would be that DM who can hold the ball, and also fill in behind a Shaw/Darmian who like to get forward.
I am also not high on Jon Stones but it seems like everyone who knows football is, so I guess I'm in the same boat as you in regards to him. As to Pogba, he was at United prior to Juve and they obviously sold him too soon. Hopefully, United put in a request that can win him.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Very smart hire||
I think people get caught up in the name of Jose. But tactically this could be very good move for United. Jose's very structured system of defense could prove very benefitial for some of the young defenders currently on United, and those rumored to be joinging the club.
Assuming the addition of Zlatan, Pogba, Grzegorz Krychowiak (Sevilla) and either Jon Stones (Everton) or Raphael Varane (Real Madrid). You then have a great crop of both defensive-minded and highly skilled young players, to compliment what could also be a great attacking club going forward.
Ideal Starting XI for Jose next season would be:
LB- Shaw CB- Smalling CB- Varane RB- Stones/Darmian
DM- Krychowiak/Scheiderlin CM- Rooney CM- Pogba RW- Rashford
LW- Martial ST- Zlatan

This will surely help the rivalry moving forward (even if just in a the short term).

1. ManUnited game from the Stretford End of Old Trafford (hopefully next January while in England)
2. Michigan at Rose Bowl
3. Red Wings Cup Finals game in new arena

The $80m a year that ManUnited and the Glazers are getting from General Motors is exactly why big name teams (and small ones also) can generate more revenue than any down turn in jersey sale. The owners know fans will always buy jerseys, how many of us will be buying the new Nike jersey this fall? Now a small portion may not buy a jersey with a sponsor logo, but no nearly enough to stop them from taking the major pay day.
Look at a team like Leicester City their current kit sponsor is the team owners... You don't think after their storybook season they won't sign a huge deal with a sponsor to help them spend to remain competitive. They likely will lose many players but if they get $30-50m a year for putting a company on the front of their jersey they likely can re-sign some of their best players.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||As much as I think Canelo||
As much as I think Canelo should walk through Khan, Canelo tends to struggle with guys who can really move in the ring. Canelo never seems to do a good job of cutting off the ring and getting guys in tight quarters where he does his best work. If Canelo allows Khan to use his hand speed and length while moving around the outside Canelo could end up looking a lot of rounds.
Prediction: Canelo (while behind on points) via stoppage in 10th round.

I can't wait to see what the Premier League script writers have in store over the next couple weeks.
What I am also excited to see is Arlo White (NBC Sports lead play-by-play) who was born in Leicester get to call the game. There is no way he ever thought his team could ever be in a position to win a title, let alone him be able to call the game and have his "do you believe in miracles" type moment.

I think he was saying he would be 9-43 over 4 years at Rutgers
|33 weeks 2 days ago||Saying no lacrosse player||
Saying no lacrosse player looks like a football player, is like saying none of the hockey team look like basketball players. The athletes are trained for their sport specifically, you wouldn't want a 275 lbs football DE as long stick defender on the lacrosse team. Same that you wouldn't want a 5'9" attack man as your starting strong safety.

Michigan currently up 3-1 at the end of the 1st quarter.

Thank you for providing that detailed breakdown of the 35% chance. I'm sure you couldn't have found a place to voice this important information in the OPEN THREAD just below this.

We all know Diaz doesn't show for media events... It would be Connor sitting on a stage without him. Which would also be entertaining.

I'm not as tech savvy as many on this board but my question (which I personally don't have a stance on yet) is does it matter the phone was owned by the local government? This was not a private citizens phone, should someone have an expectation of privacy on a company (in this case city) provided phone?
|41 weeks 6 days ago||Easy there||
That quote was from Cherry Creek Coach, not Valor's coach. I'm sure his coach is more than happy he was able to make his choice and not have any distraction next year.

First 16 mins were typical All-Star game. Zero actual hockey, but last 4 of the first game were good. Guys actually breaking up passes, not giving up breakaways.

Regularly skate at Munn as work has relocated me to the area. Since the recent renovation the rink is 100% better (not saying much, I know). The new lighting, boards, and glass make it at least better.

I also think there were some rumblings of him being a candidate for the BYU head coaching spot. Could be happy he isn't landing at a rival school.

200 down. Only 25k votes for our guy, that isn't typical of our fan base.

I won't give too many details but I work for a company doing major work on MSU campus. There wasn't a Friday this year I didn't wear my UM gear.

Possibly could the university be sly here and use their old logo? Chicago Blackhawks (aka the Hawks) and the old Sioux logo were similar.
