You've posted the same thing in two threads now. Are you a self-appointed moderator?
And you're incorrect. The presence of an open thread to discuss the BTT generally does not preclude a specific thread to discuss our next opponent after a game ends.

I am so confused right now.

Seven's the key number here. Think about it. 7-Elevens. Seven dwarves. Seven, man, that's the number. Seven chipmunks twirlin on a branch, eatin' lots of sunflowers on my uncle's ranch. You know that old children's tale from the sea.

I can't decide if your post would have been funnier or less funny if you added a /s at the end of it.

Again, he's questioning the length of the procedure, not saying that he should have been expelled without any process whatsoever.
Be honest -- if an MSU or OSU football player was accused of rape in his freshman year, and then expelled in his senior year (after his eligibility was essentially expired), would you be so charitable in assuming the university was just following proper procedure.
I'm not saying UM did anything nefarious here. But at the very least by allowing the process to take so freaking long they opened themselves up to an unnecessary shitstorm.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||What does that have to do||
What does that have to do with questioning the slowness of the investigation?
It is bizarre that he would be expelled three years after the incident took place.
Even if there was no sinister reason, the University has unnecessarily opened itself up to criticism. A football player is expelled THREE YEARS AFTER a rape allegation, coincidentally after his eligibility is all used up? Let's be honest -- what would we be saying if this happened at MSU or OSU? Not "innocent until proven guilty" I'm sure.

Why? He didn't presume guilt. He questioned why the investigation took three years.

Anyone have any video of the Appling/Levert noncall that set Beilein off? Missed it during the game, and I'm having trouble finding video on the world wide interwebs.

Yep, I've been lurking but had to log in when that happened!

Irvin just got "not just a shooter" props! But he is just a shooter! I'm so confused!

He was trying to get one foul shot for Penn State so that Kenpom would be exactly right.

Dear lord - was that a Lloyd Brady sighting at 2:24? Is Lloyd Brady immortal? Is Lloyd Brady a . . . gasp . . . vampire?

As if the hit was so devistating that it caused him to completely reevaluate his life and decide to do a project like this...
I didn't get that at all from the article.
It was a nice article - no, it wasn't perfect (should have included the name of the charity), but the charity and Smith's character were certainly the focus. The hit was just the hook that was used to get the casual reader to click on the article, which is a good thing -- I'm sure Vince has no qualms with using the hit if it gets more publicity for Hope for Pahokee.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Then I'm not sure why you||
Then I'm not sure why you were calling me out for failing to grasp "black humor" when I was responding to The2nd_JEH, not Trebor. In fact, I'm not sure why you were calling out anyone for failing to grasp the "inside joke," when no one responded to Trebor's post. Doesn't seem there was a single poster who failed to grasp the joke.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||I'm confused. Are you really||
I'm confused. Are you really suggesting that The2nd_JEH's intent was to parody some kind of "blame Barwis" hysteria over injuries that apparently existed four years ago (which I certainly don't recall)? I don't see anything in any of his posts to suggest such parodic intent.
Or are your just projecting your preoccupation with the Rich Rod battles of yesteryear onto a post that has nothing to do with Rodriguez or his coaching staff?

There is no occurrence that someone on this board will not somehow tie into a call to "reevaluate" some portion of the coaching staff.
Seven of our players were bitten on the ass by a Sumatran rat monkey and are now flesh-eating zombies!
We really need to take a hard look at Curt Mallory. If those players had their hips on a swivel this never would have happened.

Don't blame ESPN - people can control the settings of their own fantasy league. If a league has a stupid rule, its not the fault of the service provider that gives them the option of having a stupid rule.
I've never been in a league that docks points for missed field goals -- extra points yes, but not field goals.

Ugh. I'm bringing my 6 year old daughter to the game, and I know a lot of people planning on bringing young kids as well. 8 pm would be absolutely horrible.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Seriously, you're giving||
Seriously, you're giving Borges shit for calling for a pass play on 3rd and 12? One of the things that people love about this coaching staff is their aggressiveness, but you're saying that we should be sitting on a two score lead with almost an entire quarter left against a team that had been moving the ball easily? That's ridiculous.
Oh, but Borges made a bad call against Notre Dame last year, so your point is proven, I guess. What an insipid post.

You are wrong, but don't let that stop you from doubling down!
First, you seem to think that if you accuse someone of a crime without their being previously convicted in a court of law constitutes libel. That is insanely incorrect. If what you say is true, it is not libel, whether or not the person has been convicted. Moreover, the standard for proving truth in a civil action is only preponderance of the evidence, whereas to convict someone of a crime they need to be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
Second, as another poster has noted, where the plaintiff is a public figure he needs to prove that the person making the statement acted with actual malice, knowing that the statement was untrue when made. As a practical matter, that makes it virtually impossible for someone in Gibbons position to win a libel action such as this.
But whatever, you read a dictionary definition. You are totally qualified to give legal advice.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||Actually it's very||
Actually it's very different. Polls are not predictions -- polls ask likely voters how they will actually vote, so you expect efficient polling to reflect what will actually happen. The person polled has an impact on the result.
People giving predictions have no impact on the result, and you wouldn't expect predictions to have such a high degree of accuracy.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||I like to think myself above||
I like to think myself above the obviousness of "That's what she said" jokes, and certainly above homophobic/gay jokes, so I hope nobody takes this the wrong way. But did this line jump out at anybody else?
Michigan State’s receivers much preferred the softness of Kirk Cousins’s balls.
Edited: I should have realized the very first poster would beat me to this one.

Yeah! Right on! Why haven't there been any game threads about a guy who has yet to play a summer league game yet, huh?!?

You're absolutely right. I missed the part of his post where Section 1 brought race into it. My apologies, I shouldn't have called you out when I obviously hadn't read the post closely. Shows what I get for defending him!
