All of your answers are wrong. "But guthrie", you say to yourself, "it's an opinion, not a 'right or wrong' thing."

Jeremy Summitt @jeremysummitt · 1h1 hour ago Berenson said the Red Wings have opened the door for Larkin to play in Grand Rapids and forgo his eligibility. It's all up to him now.

The point is that this is a guy who isn't supposed to have even a single drop of alcohol. He had to drink a lot of booze to get to .086 at 303 pounds.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||For a 303 pound man like||
For a 303 pound man like Glasgow, if you assume a social drinking pattern of approximately 5 hours, it would take him 13 beers to reach .086. Thirteen freakin' beers. While on probation and told not to drink a single drop. If he ate food, it would require even more beers to reach .086 over the course of 5 hours. And this is assuming he didn't stop drinking until right when he was tested (which is almost certainly not the case). If he stopped any significant length of time prior to being tested, that means he burned off a decent amount of the alcohol and was still .086, requiring him to drink even more than 13.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Actually, the court has||
Actually, the court has already said he can never have a drink for a year. Apparently, that message didn't get through. I guess he decided that although it was possible for him to go to jail if he drank even a sip of alcohol (and also knowing he was subject to random testing), it was worth the risk.

I guess she likes Midwest football players.
Earlier this year she was getting cozy with OSU TE Jeff Heuerman.
|40 weeks 1 day ago||The basic reason for Webb||
Webb's reasoning is basically like this: if Brandon is fired, there simply won't be enough time to hire a new AD and then have the AD lock up a new coach. Schlissel is likely to use a search firm for the AD and no matter who they choose, the vetting process takes a while. After the new guy is picked, he isn't going to just jump ship and immediately come to UM. In Webb's opinion, the new AD probably won't actually occupy the new job until mid-January.
If that's the case, the odds are strongly in favor that Hoke will get another year because the new AD will want to make his own assessment (unless the record is so bad that it's a fait accompli).
On the other hand, if Brandon stays then that means he fought to keep his job and he'll probably jettison Hoke in favor of a homerun hire.
Please keep in mind Webb specifically said it's possible to get rid of both. He just thinks it's unlikely.

The biggest development this week isn't even discussed. When you click on the Hudl page for Roseboro, you can also click on the highlights for a guy named Zoauntarious Brunt. Apparently class of 2014, which means UM passed up a guy who would have given us the definitive lead for Best Names In College Football.

At first blush, it seems to mean the players are gonna get a pretty small amount of money (cost of attendance + $5,000 per year) compared to what they are bringing in for the schools/NCAA/networks. It also seems to mean that the judge feels these students are incapable of managing that $5,000 per year on their own until they graduate.

And that in no way addresses the fact that he is labeled as a sex offender. When a rudimentary google search yields your name as a person found to have committed sexual misconduct, you are labeled as a sex offender. To say otherwise is naive at best and intellectually dishonest at worst.

This has nothing to do with assumption of risk. This is an actuality.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||They are absolutely labeled||
They are absolutely labeled as sex offenders. You think Brendan Gibbons isn't labeled as a sex offender just because he isn't on a state registration list? He will be called a rapist for the rest of his life, as will any person like the student from Duke who is forced to sue if he/she is wrongfully found to have committed "sexual misconduct". Once you have to sue, your name is public for any employer or google search to find.
I've put plenty of people on the sex offender registry in California. I'm perfectly aware of what it is. I'm also not naive enough to believe that once a school makes a finding like this and you have to sue to get it corrected that it won't follow you for years.

|1 year 8 weeks ago||Your position holds water so||
Your position holds water so long as you are willing to be publicly labeled as a sex offender when you did not commit any offense. Are you? Are you willing to have your father/brother/son carry that label unjustly? It's easy to take that position when you are not the one asked to bear the burden.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||That is absolutely not what||
That is absolutely not what you were referencing when you said "I'm guessing not." You were referring to your sarcastic hypothetical of women setting up men for unwanted sex, i.e. rape. And you were sarcastic because you were dismissing it as a possibility, by implication. It can and does happen. It is not a mere theoretical possibility.

You're also guessing wrong.

I don't get it. He's singing under an overpass but there's no Dr. Pepper, no party and no Pitbull. Everyone knows that when you sing under a freeway, parties break out and Pitbull shows up. It's science.

Great friend of mine happens to be one of the architects on the new building. He sent me some photos from the opening today. They sort of provide better perspective than the closeup shots from the twitter feed.

Averaged 13.6 points, 8.6 rebounds. Pretty damn nice transfer to pick up. He was supposed to take some more visits (such as Indiana) but I guess he found what he wanted at OSU.
