Sorry. As a resident of Seattle area for over two decades, how NBA stole Sonics is one of the greatest injustice in sports history. I love Michigan players, but I can never root for the Zombie Sonics.

The entire Nintendo family is in mourning. He was a visionary leader for one of the most unique companies in the world.
He will be greatly missed.

That was not an Elvis impersonator. He was a Conway Twitty impersonator.

My best round is 78 at Chambers Bay. I always play as it lies.
I also shot a net 59 at a pretty good size tournament. People were hazing me pretty good about sand bagging.
But my best score is probably 88 I shot during a US Open day at Chambers Bay (where they played it at 7600 yards).

I was planning on going till they decided to put it on Thu night. It is a big bummer...

Putting your body through intense exersize like playing football will definitely increase your chances of reinjuring yourself and worse, leave you with lingering effect for rest of your life.
I am very uncomfortable with deciding medical hardship based on projected "usefulness" of the player. The only question that should be relevant is whether or not further playing will leave the player with disabilities that may affect him for the rest of his life. If not, no matter how ineffective he will be, he should be allowed to play or at least keep his scholarship (not medical).
If you decide that his value as the member of team is a legit factor in deciding whether or not to medical a player, you are in the exact same boat with Saban and other questionable SEC actors. I see no difference in cutting a player because he cannot crack the two deep and medicalling a player because of projected lack of output.
I am very disappointed that most on this site is fine with SEC tactics as long as it is our team that is doing it. We should never be making any fuss about Saban tactics in the future.

Grad transfer has already been mentioned. It would also allow Harbaugh to sign a class larger than 25 for 2016. I am feeling really uncomfortable with the current recruiting class.

He may not but Hackett or better yet Schlissel will.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||If the motive for Harbaugh||
If the motive for Harbaugh was the long term health for Pipkins, the best way to go about it would have been to red shirt him this year and talk to him about retiring after this year as that would make sure that he does not play this year and monitor him to make sure he is not hurting himself further while training.
Forcing him out says Harbaugh wants that scholarship spot. That does not look good no matter how much people want to twist it.

I categorically reject the notion that you cannot win without treating kids well.

We have 14 spots. We already have 18 commitments. Most are saying it will go 25. There is plenty to be concerned about.

I don't want to win this way.

He could have at least said "Kung Fu" flicks. None of what he listed involves Karate...

Been here all day marshaling at the 18th. The course is playing perfect for a tournament like this. Tomorrow will be epic.

Watching Tiger (missed WAAAY to the right), Oosthuizen (double bogey), Fowler (double bogey) play #8 was like watching myself play there...
|6 weeks 4 days ago||The course is long and due to||
The course is long and due to the firmness of the green, you have a HUGE advantage if you can hit shorter irons into the green (more height and spin), allowing you to hit closer to the pin. Dustin had an EXCELLENT day with his irons and that is why he is at the top.
Similar story for Stenson who is also a long hitter.
If you can hit long and make 10 footers, you are going to score here.

About 150 rounds...

The greens are quite receptive, actually. Most wedge shots are sticking within 5 feet of where they land. There are sideboards and ridges to slow your shots or direct your ball towards the middle if needed. All it takes is imagination and skill to get the ball close. There are a ton of guys shooting under par (for US Open). If anything, it is playing too easy (mostly because of easy pin positions).

Dustin wasn't dropping bombs... and I thought greens were horrible.

I couldn't care less about non-uniformity. This ain't Masters.

How does someone post a 65 while not getting rewarded for good shots?
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Without water or moisture in||
Without water or moisture in the ground, poa does not bloom nor grow and it actually gets slicker. Which is why for the afternoon rounds, the stimps are running at 12 compared to 11 in the morning.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Chambers Bay is about as much||
Chambers Bay is about as much fun as you can have on a golf course where you can hit almost any shot you can think of. A 32 handicapper can play it while not losing a ball while even the best players in the world can have all kinds of problems. It is fantastic golf.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||The greens are fine. It is||
The greens are fine. It is mostly fescue with some poa mixed in, which is why they look mottled. They roll fine and is very fun to play on.

Kit Harrington, AKA Jon Snow, is signed for the entire duration of the seven seasons.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I don't care what the star||
I don't care what the star rating is, as long as the coach Harbaugh wants him, that is fine by me.
That being said...
When I saw DJohnson's video, I was really impressed with his athleticism and his closing speed. I think picking up great athletes and coaching them up is the right way to go and he certainly fits that bill.
Looking at the videos above, I don't see any quick bursts or closing speed. I see good vertical, but that is about it. I believe the 5.23 based on the video alone. I mean, if he was an OL prospect, he would be fine, but I have a hard time seeing him as TE or DE.

In OP's defense, it has been a day or more since the original post.

Your strange comment would make somewhat sense if either horse was a late stretcher who hangs back early in the race, but both horses were frontrunners who set the pace from the get go.
This just goes to show how great Secretariat was. He eased up in the end and still bested American Pharaoh and all other horses by nearly three seconds.

I do love the fact that as a Michigan board, we hold ourselves to a higher bar when it comes to proper grammar compared to rest of the Internet.
