FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.

I think your analogy about rich students doesn't match what Shaw was saying in the money quote you're highlighting. Shaw isn't saying money won't make you go to class. Shaw is saying you shouldn't be paid for going to class. You can argue points about whether a 'student-athlete' is really just a student like any other, which is fine. But your analogy just doesn't pass logic test to me.

Well PJ hill was 5'10" and about 220, so he wasn't exactly a fatty magoo. Of course we was about 240-250 his first year, and slimmed down to be a better RB.

Almost 250 with 27 percent body fat is...not ideal for a big time RB. Hope his hard work pays off in the fall.

Uhh, I think you might be the lunatic fringe that finds it acceptable to be a complete asshole and sexually harass others under the name of 'tradition'.
|1 day 16 hours ago||They got like 4 guys listed||
They got like 4 guys listed on the DL at 300+. OSU is full of fattymagoos who have to waddle around he field. Duh.

Depends. Is there a joint involved? If so, then HAMMER OF JUSTICE! If not, then, eh, they just made a 'mistake'. Hold out your wrist.
|1 day 17 hours ago||My analysis: Derrick Green is||
Derrick Green is going to be so fast at 220. The OL is finally going to be super strong with the general weight gains. With only one DL at 300+ that is not a freshman, I can confidently say UM will have the fastest, most athletic DL in the league. Same concept with the DBs, they're going to be super quick with those weights; will be hard to beat them with all that quickness.

See this is the kind of shit that happens when you let Ohio State exist. Hopefully someone will finally do something. Stupid politicians worrying about budgets, immigration, health care and all that other crap while they ignore the greatest scourge to out society: Ohio State. Time to wake up America!

Yeah, sexual harassment is cool as long as it's not with your sibling.

How would it ruin March Madness? Teams will still play even if other kids are playing in China.

I don't mind one bit. If a kid wants to get paid, let him. I'll still be watching UM, and hopefully more guys stick around for 4 years.
|3 days 19 hours ago||I think the answer is to||
I think the answer is to reduce the salaries of of coaches, ADs, and administrators, and give the money to alumni who live in Tennessee. Don't ask me the specifics, the accountants will take care of it. Also double portions for the athletes at training table should appease them in this scenario.

Change 'college basketball' to 'Big Ten basketball' and your more correct.

Is 6'9" not tall? Plenty of teams are rebounding machines with 6'9" centers.

Also not going to Ohio State's thing either, so probably more of a can't make it thing than a doesn't want to make it thing.

Sure it does. A good politician will convince a voter to vote opposite of the voter's best interests if it is in the politician's best interest. The key is to make the voter 'feel' that voting a certain way is in their best interest even if it is not actually.

Read a statement from Europe's main pilot group/union that the route they were flying is the most travelled/popular route from Europe to Kuala Lumpur or something like that. It's hardly an isolated decision by the captain. Lufthansa and Air France just released statements they won't be flying that route anymore.

Considering the region, we really may never get closure for a long, long, time if ever.

Hell the US shot down a civilian jetliner a few years later while the plane was in it's own country's airspace. Now the malice wasn't there and may have been a mistake caused by various levels of negligence depending on who you ask, but still. Not good.
|1 week 1 day ago||I really don't know a lot||
I really don't know a lot about the region's various military type factions or weapon systems, but considering the area, is it possible there could be some older Soviet era weapons that rebels could get there hands on? 33,000 feet is well beyond the typical ground launchers, but for a sitting duck like an unsuspecting jumbo jet, I imagine one would not need the most advanced of surface to air missile platforms either.

Well...that was unexpected. Winning would help to avoid this in the future.

I'm glad you find comfort in the coach speak semantics. I personally do not. Debacle after debacle with no change in the schemes, which coaches do control, and still 'we didn't execute'. That's a veiled 'if only they would have blocked/passed better in my great game plans and schemes, it would have worked'. That's throwing your players under the bus after doing little to help them actually succeed.
