is all of 6'6 and is really just as much of a wing as he is a 2. And if you are presenting Meeks as the reason we don't need a SG, just, I don't know man.

were going to cut bait. Really wanted the Pistons to make a play for him, but I think unfortunately it makes too much sense for the Pistons to do it.

just don't think Harbaugh cares in the slightest what people outside the program think. I don't think this will be the last time something like this happens.

to play competitively more than he does. You can hit golf balls until your hands bleed on the range but it does not simulate playing the game. If he wants to win again he should be playing every week. You know the tournaments where it is like "The Kraft Fat Free Ranch Invitational" and the leaderboard consists of J.B. Holmes and Retief Goosen. He should be playing in all of those tournaments if his health allows. I think playing is the only way he really gets out of this.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I think||
that a lot of his swing "tweaks" over the last 5 years were to protect his right knee. I think that is the reason he started trying to play that fade off the tee, his knee could not take the impact of really driving into the ball. He is caught between two entirely different swings right now. He is getting way out ahead and the club cannot catch up. If is notable that he is still hitting the ball a ton so there is golf still in that body.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||To the contrary,||
his ability to laugh at his own failures on the golf course is a step closer to success for Tiger as opposed to a step back. His ability to just let go and play the hand that he is dealt on any given day is a step he has to take.
Golf is a very cruel game. It will kick your ass sometimes and there is nothing you can do about it. There is no mercy to be found when you don't have your game and you are not in the right place mentally. Success in golf is fleeting and transient, stretches of good and bad play can come about for no obvious reason because much of it lies in the subconcious. Golf is a game you can only play well when it is part of a rhythm in your life that extends of this course.
If Tiger is physically OK, and it looks to me that he is, his game will return when he finds some kind of harmony off the course. In 6 years he has had two kids, a very public divorce/meltdown, significant injuries, and another (very recently) failed relationship. He is 39, he can feasibly play competitively on tour I would say until he is about 45. I think it is crazy to say that he will not win another tournament. He was the number 1 player in the world less than 2 years ago.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I think||
he will win a British (Open Championship) on a shortish course where he can tee off with iron for a lot of the day.. I would say that this year at St. Andews would be ideal if he was not such a mess right now. Tiger will have a final triumph. He won't sniff Jack's record though.

literally the last person that anybody would turn to for comment on this issue. Kirk, do you also hate dunking in basketball because it is still "only two points." Also, when you were a boy did you walk twenty miles to school, uphill both ways?
You are Iowa and nobody cares.

liked Bloodline from the get go. It gets really good shortly after where you are. Danny is not what he seems, or more than he seems, depending on how you look at it. Keep watching, acting is superb and it gets really intense. When you are done, go down the Netflix dial a little bit and watch Rectify. It is a Sundance show. Really good. It is like The Shawshank Redemption was remade by Terrance Malick.

on him at the Longhorn back in the day. I did not realize it was him until a co-worker pointed it out and asked him. He acknowledged that he was in fact Bob Seger and then proceeded to not want any part of discussing being Bob Seger. Real quiet guy. Apparently really likes prime rib.

is a cheesy song period. They need to scratch that. It was a cool thing until it became "a thing" and now the One Shining Moment thing is just pretty awkward.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah,||
there are so many words in that post that I don't understand. I guess I better hit wikipedia.

|6 weeks 4 days ago||This||
is one of the most bizarre outcomes of a recruiting saga that I can ever remember. Purdue? They are perpetual underacheivers with a modest basketball pedigree and a coach who seems to be perpetually on the hot seat. If they were coming off an unlikely run deep into the tournament I guess I could see it. He was committed to State, coming off a Final Four run and poised to put together a remarkable class and he decommits and goes to, Purdue?
I guess this makes them a player in the conference short term but for the life of me I cannot figure this one out.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Dude,||
nobody cares where you went/are going to college. Michigan is a good school - congrats on going to college. Now get a job when you get out of college and you will complete the extraordinary accomplishment of doing what, like, everybody on the blog has done. And your family will probably through you a party where you eat hot dogs and cake and it will be splendid. A real treat.

Circle. You are a bad person and you should feel bad about yourself.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Petway?||
He was our high flyer during the long winter, early/mid 2000s. Could absolutely jump out of the gym but never really became anything more than that for us.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Well,||
that news probably really takes some air out of his sails.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Those||
should still be our uniforms.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Actually,||
yes, I do want to see a recap of your game tomorrow.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||OK,||
well, if it is the Big Ten rule than obviously that is not anything to do with Beilein. If it was Beilein's attempt to block the transfer than I think it is bush league.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Is he||
automatically prohibited from transfering within the conference by the BIG or the NCAA unless he wins an appeal? If so, I take a large portion of my post back, but I thought that the school he is transfering from can and often do prevent players from transfering within the conference. if I am wrong I am wrong but I don't "assume the worst" about Beilein.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Wow,||
Floyd Mayweather actually fits both definitions of that word.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Will||
somebody tell me why in the actual hell would we cut bait with Max while still having a scholarship available, try to prevent him from transfering within the BIG and now just stand by while this productive big man with a year of eligibility left signs with an in-conference rival of ours without really trying to patch this up.
I hope we win the game but I have to say I would not mind seeing Max go for 20 against us. Beilein does not misjudge or mishandle things that often but this Beilfeldt thing has come out looking pretty bad for Michigan I would say.

see an issue with it. I do see an issue with the exorbinant amount of time it takes for refs to conduct a review, but not with regard to huddling the teams up. It is a matter of chance when it happens and it is silly to require the players to "stay away" from the coach during the review. Everybody wanted video review, now we got it and this is just one side effect. There is nothing that can be done about it and I think people make too much of an issue out of it.

problem is that a lot of what is characterized as "flopping" by most people is not actually flopping. Take a play where an offensive player is posting and leads with his elbow, it is not a flop to absorb that contact and let gravity take over and take you to the floor as a defender. J Mo was often cited as flopping when he did this, but there is no rule saying that a defender has not use ALL possible effort to not fall down after an offensive player has fouled, that is not flopping. It could be construed as "selling" the foul, but it isn't a flop.
Now, when players like pretend that an elbow made contact with their face and it didn't, yeah, they should get a tech. That is bush league, but I think that people are way to up in arms about "flopping" and offensive fouls. A defender should not be punished because an offensive player loses control of their body.

Take a look at everything in 1997, the home football uniforms, the away football uniforms, the basketball uniforms, the basketball alternates, everything - do exactly that, nothing more, nothing less, and you have yourself a winner.
