One important difference: Stenavich was only 6'4". Newsome has higher upside.

One of the main arguments I have heard tossed about is that Michigan wants to run a pro-style offense, thus modeling their play calling after NFL offenses, thus eschewing the spread "fad." One thing I noticed watching the pro-style Lions on Sunday was their willingness to throw a quick out to their wide receivers when the DBs aligned well off the line of scrimmage. I counted at least 2-3 times where Stafford took the easy yards the defense was giving him.

RDT has switched to backing another red menace.

I looked at how a team with a player of the year (POY) winner from six major awards (Naismith, AP, Adolph Rupp, Wooden, Oscar Robertson, and NABC) have fared since all six awards have coexisted (1976-1977 season). In those 37 national championship games (NCG), a POY winner competed 11 times. The overall record of the team with a POY winner in those 11 matchups is 7-4, for a winning percentage of 64%.
Some other statistics to note is that since '76-'77, B1G teams have competed in the NCG 11 times, with a record of 5-6. This hides the fact that the last 4 times a B1G team made the NCG, they lost. The last B1G winner was Michigan State in 2000.
Finally, while the B1G overall has not had a stellar record in the NCG, the B1G vs. Big East has fared better, with a 2-1 overall record since '76-'77. The last B1G win vs. the Big East came courtesy of Michigan over Seton Hall in 1989, a game I'm sure more than a few of you fondly remember.

I don't think the graph you used went big enough!

Maybe theirs was a purely online relationship. Verlander thought it was Kate Upton, but it was actually Brandon Inge using a woman's voice. Inge can play multiple positions, so the pieces fit.

Maybe kids nowadays just don't like corn, so they are trying to get away from the Midwest as soon as possible. I know it's hard for me to trust anything with so many ears. What is corn listening to!?!

46 out of 160 4/5 star backs were drafted for a "hit" percentage of 28.8%.

Rick Mirer was pretty good.

Now you will have to change your signature. Perhaps a diary of your Bolivian adventure is called for, which you can then link to in your signature.

I say we offer a carton of cigarettes and go after Nigel "The Leg" Gruff. He probably still has eligibility left, as he was a soccer player before crossing picket lines.
