I don't know what you're talking about. Soccer is the obviously the only sport where people make exaggerated motions, simulations, and flops to try and get a call. Never happens in any other sport. So it's a totally legitamate reason to not like soccer.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Man, I'm bummed. The site||
Man, I'm bummed. The site has been basically unchanged since I started cruising it's periodic updates and short posts during my undergrad years. I personally like the design. I also hate change. But whatever I suppose. As long as the message board remains relatively unchanged. It gives me the most recent posts easily and I don't have to wade through endless 'bumps' in threads that are mostly useless that I encounter on other boards.
|1 week 4 days ago||I was wondering about this||
I was wondering about this too. I mean, if it was just the football incident, I don't think the AD is touched. But that on top of gymnastics which has apparently been going on for YEARS is really really bad. I guess it depends on how deep it goes and how much the president feels Hollis is responsible.
|1 week 4 days ago||I don't think MLK||
I don't think MLK specifically, but he ran the Sound Mind Sound Body camp which plugged him into the whole Detroit football scene pretty hard. That's what MSU hired. And two of three rumored players in this investigation are Detroit kids as well.
|1 week 4 days ago||I thought I read that Long||
I thought I read that Long turned a laser timed 4.40 at one of Opening camps or at the Opening itself (and a glance back at recruiting profile states he also has a 10.6 100 in high school). He's reportedly legit fast That's why he was so highly rated I suppose, like a consensus top 100 type player who Washington really wanted (that means something under the current staff there).
|1 week 4 days ago||Maybe Evans can turn the jets||
Maybe Evans can turn the jets on near the end because he jogs earlier. Just because he was able to make up a lot of ground on the back end doesn't mean he would have been able to do it if he pushed it the first half.
|1 week 4 days ago||Yeah, not the best way to||
Yeah, not the best way to determine the 'fastest' with a there and back 200 yard race...but still, it's quite interesting. Probably more a test of high intensity endurance than flat out foot speed.
I see Nordin, Melletus, Long, Glasgow, Evans, 45 - who the heck is that, McDoom, Johnson.
|1 week 4 days ago||McDoom was right there neck||
McDoom was right there neck and neck fur most of the race, but just ran out of gas the last 40 yards or so. Came in third.
|1 week 4 days ago||And Long looks pretty built||
And Long looks pretty built from that video as well. Too bad he was injured last year. I hope he's back on track and ready to step in at boundary corner this year. That speed and sizecsure doesn't hurt.
|1 week 4 days ago||Are you being willfully||
Are you being willfully ignorant so you can have an excuse as to why we don't need to discuss the role of race in society? Of course he's black. It's fine to notice he's black and talk about it as well. I think society would be better off if we did talk about this stuff instead of hiding behind this false and unobtainable ideal of 'color-blindness'. It's more important to be color competent (I can't think of a better word) than color blind.
|1 week 5 days ago||I really want to see UM take||
I really want to see UM take the NCAA to court over some of these rules if they pass. Seriously get into nefarious waters of employment law if the NCAA says a guy can't take a job for which he is qualified for because of who his son is.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I mean, it's not hard to find||
I mean, it's not hard to find strong rumors on who it is on the internet. Also apparently a public report could be coming about the probe next weekz
|2 weeks 4 days ago||My brother seemingly spent||
My brother seemingly spent half his 25 year Navy career deployed on aircraft carriers, and he said the same thing. But not unexpected with new technology. Hopefully gets the problems worked out.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Great hire by them. And also||
Great hire by them. And also puts a great recruiter at UT. And the staff already has good connections to the Midwest.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||His connection to UM still||
|2 weeks 6 days ago||His connection to UM means I||
His connection to UM means I still can't seem to root against him, but this year man, I definitely cannot root for him. I don't know how to feel this game. Who from UM plays for Atlanta?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||There goes one data point in||
There goes one data point in recruit evaluations and rankings. But damn, if they roll Webb into UM's 247 site with Lorenz, that easily becomes the best UM recruiting info source out there. I imagine they'll hire him, they'd be fools not to.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||You're not remembering the||
You're not remembering the whole story. He filmed a woman having sex without her consent. That's why he was kicked off the team. I mean, if you read the police stuff, it doesn't sound like he's an evil guy or anything. And he went through the legal system and I don't think we want to condemn him to a life in the salt mines, but man, he can have his 'redemption story' (whatever that means), somewhere else.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Geez, getting rid of Beck was||
Geez, getting rid of Beck was one thing but Warriner produced some great OLs in less than ideal circumstances. I like that he's gone from OSU.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I'm really interested to see||
I'm really interested to see how they do. They were a good team this year by advanced stats. But they also has that crazy OSU win that they were out gained by a bunch and had fluky special team plays. And when hey we're winning down the stretch, it was a Charmin schedule. But good news for them is that thy get a Charmin schedule in 2017. UM and OSU in back to back weeks is tough, but they get a by before UM (of course) and miss UW. Schedule does not favor UM next year in comparison to PSU and OSU. However, still undecided on Franklin's HC ability in the long run, and McSorley is quite up and down.

Well maybe Ed Feng will have something to say on the WTKA round table this Thursday. Apparently they were next door neighbors out in Palo Alto when Hamilton was at Stanford.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Of course you always want to||
Of course you always want to evolve. But going to a Wilson-esque air raid is quite the change. I don't know, you go up against good teams, you don't do as well. Should Washington sweep it's offensive staff because it got crushed by Bama? I don't know, it's whatever I suppose. Getting Wilson as an offensive analyst would be a good idea, but jamming another offensive guy into their staff just seems weird to me and doesn't solve the actual problems. I think Meyer is chasing that three game streak in 2014 where they got hot and Hermann was on his game.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I would say Harbaugh made the||
I would say Harbaugh made the best possible defense hire last year. As for offensive hires, that's a completely different monster. Who else runs a Harbaugh offense? There are buckets of coaches that run various spreads, but guys who run jumbo athlete multiple personnel group packages are few and far between in college football these days. So you're not likely to see a college HC come to UM like Wilson to OSU.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Honestly, this makes little||
Honestly, this makes little sense if the Wilson part is true. His offensive philosophy is inconsistant with what Meyer has run for the last 10 years. If you want to run a Wilson offense it requires a offensive system overhaul and moves far away from the power spread run and toward air-raid. Honestly, it's just weird that Meyer would do that for an offense that is not in anyway fundementally broken. Could it use tweaks a better QB coach? Sure, so the Day hire makes total sense. But bringing in a new OC, even if his offense were high powered doesn't just translate to $$ everywhere, like we even saw with Brown. There are still always transistion costs and the marginal benefit to an already very good OSU offense seems small.
But hasn't a bunch of the problems been attributed to poor communication amoung the offensive staff? And now you put in another co-oc (on top of the HC) who is also a QB and OL coach in the past and then double up on those position coaching? And the leave the defense staff down to three guys? Unless they're planning on letting go another offensive assistant, this doesn't make much sense. But we won't find that out until after signing day
|7 weeks 4 days ago||That's weird. First, they||
That's weird. First, they just hired a new QB coach (was what Beck was doing) who is from the Meyer tree. Second, Wilson is an air raid guy. Meyer is not. Their offenses are predicated on fundementally different concepts. Would they go hyperspeed air raid? That's a system overhaul from Meyer's power run read option stuff since he was at Florida. Second, if they hire Wilson, then wouldn't that only leave three defensive coaches on the staff since Fickle left? And what would Wilson do? An OC and OL coach doubling exactly what Warrnier does? And leave an unbalanced staff with three defensive guys one of who I think coaches special teams as well? That's a weird staff compasition. And not that OSU cares at all, but Wilson comes with some serious recent player mistreatment allegations. It would make sense to hire Wilson has one of those offense analyst guys. Hell, I wouldn't mind if UM did that.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Of course sexual assult with||
Of course sexual assult with keep happening no matter what we do. But let's not pretend that sexual assult on college campuses isn't a huge issue. And what do you think would happen if the headline was 'Grant Perry Arriainged for First Degree Murder'? You think we would be taking a 'well let's see how it plays out and know all the facts' additude?
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Fuck that, yes I will pass||
Fuck that, yes I will pass judgement for now. He absolutely gets his due process, but that has to do with the government and him. Him playing football is independent of that. This is how athletes get away with this shit isn't it? 'Let's see how it plays out?' and then bam, graduated, gone to NFL, transfer, whaterver without any meaningful impact on the perpetrator. Fuck that. I say he never puts on the Maize and Blue again until it's resolved. And if he's one of the like 3% or whatever of falsely accused people, then I will gladly apologize to him and he has a redshirt year, and then I hope whoever makes the false allegation is punished to the fullest extent of the law.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Fuck that, yes it is. What||
Fuck that, yes it is. What the fuck is supposed to be sexual assult? Do you have to hold a woman down and penetrate her? Is that where the line is. Fucking grabing a someone in any sexual way against their will is sexual assult.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Good god. Did he dress again||
Good god. Did he dress again after this incident?
I know the legal process has to play out and he deserves due process, but for fuck's sake, that has nothing to do with playing college football. I honestly cannot remember if he suited up after this, but I'll be disgusted in UM if he did. I so sick of this shit where people commit sexual assult and they get the slappiest of wrist slaps. Which basically means 'eh, we don't care so much about this'. Even if the staff doesn't feel it warrents a full dismissal right now, he should be suspended until the legal process resolves. And hell, even if he pleads to a lesser offense or something, I think that warrents dismissal. This sexual assult crap has to stop.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Not foreign born, but he does||
Not foreign born, but he does have a Croatian passport and was recruiting by the Croatian FA to play for them. But that's was apparently just to make it easier to work in Germany.
