Not having read past book 2, I see Arya Stark as a young Anikan Skywalker right now...

Would be Mark Rosentraub, whose class was far and away the most interesting and inspiring class I took in college. Urban Revitalization and Economic Development through Sports.

This reminds of the 5th grade basketball camp where I won Thunder & Lightning, Dribbling Drill, 3-Point Contest, and Most Layups in One Minute. All the Dairy Queen and McDonalds gift certificates.

My junior year of highs schoo, I took the Spring Break Campus Tour of 4-5 schools; the tour concluded in Ann Arbor.
Already having grown up a Wolverine fan, I remember riding in the car past Ocker Field and Yost on the way to my campus visit, thinking, "Let's be real here. These other visits are simply formalities. This is where I'm going, and it's not even close."

Man, does Dakich or ESPN know anything about PR? How can a professional in such a high-profile role get away with such blatant twitter trash talk? Twitter is NO DIFFERENT than standing up and making a statement to a room full of your followers.
Talk about a failure in personal branding. Heck, I re-read each of my own tweets 2-3 times to make sure they're actually worth tweeting.

But really, without Michigan, do MSU or OSU know who they are?

Was 20 years old. Jumped the fence out back. Ripped the jeans. Helped a friend climb over. Ran a couple blocks, slowed down, and joined Quickie Burger.

Commit-a-palooza. A mid-February basketball game with the coaches in attendance.

...the #1 pick in the NFL Draft, Reon Sandcastle.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Wait until he enrolls.||
Wait until he walks through the Diag; checks out Ann Arbor, attends a Michigan basketball game, sings the Victors with his teammates after a win, and explores the thousands of other things that make the University of Michigan hte best place in the world. I am sure he'll be singing a different tune in no time.

You can't be mad at that. Just wow.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Burke puts one headphone to||
Burke puts one headphone to an ear and mashes things together until the thing that comes out doesn't seem like it could have been constructed from the parts that went in.

Joe Flacco and Disney World just do not match

If we ever expect soccer to become Americanized, hearing it exclusively in European accents doesn't help.

Georgetown's and Texas's Hyper Elites look kinda fresh. For them. Wouldn't want us to ever go back to the block M.

I think as an athlete, you dream about being the best. You work at being the best. Then you hear someone tell you that, indeed, you're one of the best.
And you're just kinda there. A high school junior going to class and preparing for your upcoming basketball game, thinking, "Wow. I woke up today just like any other day in my life. And now this is what being one of the best looks and feels like." I think in that situation it's pretty conceivable to feel humble.

This team always comes out with a run at the beginning of the second half. They already have the momentum here. Get GRIII or Stauskas an open look that goes down, and we'll roll.

We're on our way back...just give it time............
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Thing is, when the Pistons||
Thing is, when the Pistons acquired Chauncey, nobody was calling him a pure point guard. Who's to say Knight can't develop into one? Not saying Calderon wasn't a good move, but this team's backcourt just got a lot more interesting as they try to run down the Sixers and the Celts.

Game's personal for Max. Doesn't the Bielfeldt family have some sort of building at U of I named after them?

Why does Illinois so vehemently think that Michigan is its rival? Lotta hate going on in that arena

Georgetown's and UNC's look kinda dope though. I see it, Nike. Somewhat.

In the late seventies/early eighties, many elite programs actually did leave the NCAA so they could negotiate their own television contracts with the help of the CFA (College Football Association). The NCAA only allowed one televised game each Saturday.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Trey's shot selection||
I know some of us get annoyed with Trey's shot selection, but even with the position inflation, the Kobe Assist factor can still help us all sleep better knowing there's such a high probability that some frontcourt player will grab Trey's miss a lot of the time
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Murray Sperber's Beer and||
Murray Sperber's Beer and Circus touches on this - even if most athletic departments aren't self-sufficient, universities are okay with spending a shit-ton on athletics, because they use sports as a vehicle to drive strong undergraduate enrollment numbers and interest from prospective students.
He calls it the "Flutie Factor"; after BC beat Miami on the Hail Mary and garnered national attention, the # of applicants to BC rose dramatically. Students want to go have fun in college - go to parties, tailgate, pregame, binge drink, etc. Obviously, a lot of that culture revolves around college sports; thus, universities use athletics as a marketing tool aimed at the regular student. So really, spending on academics vs. athletics "per student" turns into a real blurry line here.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Twitter can be used in many||
Twitter can be used in many inappropriate ways, e.g. when Mark Hollis tweets at Trey Burke, or someone uses a hashtag like #bringagun. If you bring about the topic of NCAA regulation of Twitter for negative recruiting, you have to discuss the regulation of public forums as a whole for NCAA-related issues.
The issue doesn't seem to be negatively recruiting or starting rumors (because that's always going to happen regardless of the medium) but rather using improper, i.e. public, outlets to engage in questionable behavior. And if the NCAA wants to attempt to regulate what is and isn't appropriate...good luck.
