How exactly does Kentucky cheat? We have zero evidence of it.
For all the Cal is dirty talk, the only thing that we have on him since the 90s is that DRose cheated on his SAT which falls clearly into the category of things I could easily see Cal not knowing.
Yes, they recruit one-and-dones. At least they are honest about it instead of certain other schools. Cal's pitch is the nba, their facilities are the best, their fans are the best, and Rupp is a religious experience (seriously, go to Rupp with an open mind, it is awesome). If I was a top 5-10 recruit who really wanted to just go to the NBA out of high school. I would go to Kentucky too. If anything, Cal is brutally honest. You can call him sleazy, but I fail to see how people can claim he cheats.
In the end, I have rooting interests in ONE team. That team is Michigan. After that, I root for stories and greatness. I hope Kentucky wins it all because they may well be the best college basketball team of my lifetime and they are doing it in an era of parity. I want to see an undefeated team in my lifetime. It is incredible and they are fantastically fun to watch because I like good basketball.

in my right leg while skiing in the 9th grade, I am rather lucky to be able to run today.
|1 week 6 days ago||I am normally huge on game||
I am normally huge on game theory especially with brackets. I generally pick teams like state (ncaa) or mexico (world cup) because I am in brackets where everyone hates them making them undervalued.
However, I just flat out think Kentucky is going to win it. They are so so good. In the end, it makes sense to go with them if you truly believe they are winning it.
|1 week 6 days ago||I disagree. We have a chance||
I disagree. We have a chance to witness something that hasn't been done in 40 years. Greatness should be respected and something to strive for. It is awesome to watch ala the Pats almost undefeated season.
Plus, Cal isn't so much dirty as a touch slimy. He has the best arena I have ever been too (Rupp), great facilities, a player's dorm, etc. And he is honest in his goal. He is trying to get players to the pros as quick as possible. I don't mind ths because it is both honest and the goal of college s to get a job regardless of how long you need to get there.
Finally, unless you get to bet Kentucky versus the field (in which I still take Kentucky), you are a fool not to bet on Kentucky. Ever other team's individual odds are tiny.

even within Michigan and even between one judge to the next.
Oakland tends to be the harshest by reputation

he certainly had many drinks, I am about his weight and it takes quite a few unless i literally just pound shots without stopping .
I was merely refuting the idea that he must have been massively drunk to blow a .08 at 10am
|2 weeks 7 hours ago||I don't||
I don't but it may have been and I like cutting 21 year old kids who deal with the stress of college and college football the benefit of the doubt.
Also, if this random testing is anything like it was for my friends who got mipped a second time (a far less serious offense) in ann arbor, than he has been tested quite a few times over the last ~8 months. It is very possible this is the first time he has at least gotten drunk.
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||I am not defending drinking||
I am not defending drinking on probation ....
but this is not hard to do at all. Many college late nights go on until 4-5 in the morning. Your body dumps somewhere between .01-.015 per hour. So .015*5= .075 and add the .086 puts us at a BAC of around .16. This is drunk but for many students, that is not even throwing up drunk..

one night drinking in like 8 months on a day some (although not most of campus) is celebrating st. pattys does not an alcoholic make
it was dumb especially because he was almost off probation, but everyone makes mistakes. I had more than a couple friends get dinged by the random testing calls post MIP (i realize this was a dui). It is random and very easy for a friend to convince you that you will be fine.

yes, let's dump a kid from a scholie who busts his ass for michigan a ton and has already taken a brain injury for the school
short of a severe legal issue, we should NEVER cut a kids scholie

argue that the college kids play just as hard. I to love the nba but you gotta admit, the Pistons outside of one magical 20 gae run this year, have been awful to watch since 08

I love this CSO idea, it doesn't change game strategy but speeds up the game

because that is the first year of full data (kenpom), without relevant data, you just rely on the nostalgia of yesteryear which allows people to remember only the fun games, not the ugly brick-fests

|2 weeks 13 hours ago||you cant have it both ways||
beilein is a coach who prefers a taking a good shot over a high pace ... it is no different than what wisco is doing this year.
2013 is a bad example because the team had 5 nba players on it. They are going to find good shots faster because they were far far more skilled than even a normal "good" p5 team. And even with that team, our pace was very slow that year just as it always is.
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||your point is better than mine||
this would make the game even longer and uglier because it is not like teams are just going to give up and stand there while the clock runs out
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||so your anti beilein i take it||
and I am not even talking about block/charge stuff (though you are wrong, an offensive player should not be allowed to run over a defender to get to the basket).
Beilein's whole offense that is so beautiful to watch is based on only taking GOOD shots. I hate hate hate watching low efficiency chuckers, sure it leads to improbable nights where a kid goes off, but the majority of nights leads to ugly basketball. Basketball has more and more become a thinking man's game requiring patience, efficiency, and strategy by both offenses and defenses. And it is incredible to watch.

this would fundamentally change the game and basically make comebacks late in games impossible. It would also encourage even more savage hacking for steals at the end of the game because it would be a team's only option

this dude is already on campus and (pry) will not cost a scholie. It is a free lotto ticket. If he isn't needed by baseball, I like free lotto tickets. Regardless, he is probably around for scout team depth to give the D more reps.

It seems everyone agrees upon this. There should be punishment also seems to be agreed upon.
The disagreement part comes from what should this punishment be. Personally, I do not think people should be expelled from a public university for their beliefs no matter how abhorrent they are. It quickly creates a massively slippery slope. Education is generally helped by a diversity of thought.
Furthermore, the University should be trying to educate these students. Let's be honest, most kids who are racist were raised that way. For many of them, college is probably their first opportunity to have their pre conceived notions on race challenged. It is an opportunity to grow and reject these beliefs. Expelling these young men does not challenge their beliefs, at most, it will teach them to not voice them, but it certainly does end the beliefs which someday they may well pass onto their children.
I am thankful everyday that my parents raised me to be accepting of all, to love experiencing new cultures, and that they raised me to try and be kind to all. Even then, as a white kid who grew up in a farming town with a severe lack of diversity, I had a lot to learn. My time at Michigan was a learning/growing experience when it came to dealing with all matter of things I had not dealt with. This includes race/sexuality/religion.
I guess what I am trying to say is that in their own way, these OU boys were probably raised to think this way which is a disadvantage in its own way. The only way to end racism, is to challenge it through dialogue, not just kick these students out and allow the cycle to continue.
