Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

I got 17.4 Units of hustle-grit. You might want to double check though, because I was always terrible with word problems.

My favorite argument. "I didn't think he was a first ballot HOFer."
I've never understood how people can take their personal observations of baseball players outside of statistical analysis so seriously. What percentage of Tom Glavine's career appearances did you witness either in person or on TV? Unless you're a Braves fan, I would guess that we're probably talking maximum maybe two or three games a year? Do you really think that based on observing well under 10% of his career appearances, whether you thoughg he was that dominant is remotely relevant?
|32 weeks 6 days ago||That's not really how it||
That's not really how it works. LeVert and Stauskas took over the offense in the second half. There's only one ball to go around and GR3 doesn't get to start the offense.
|33 weeks 4 days ago||Uhhh..||
I think UGA was pretty relevant last year when they were 5 yards from going to the National championship. And winning a couple conference titles doesn't really = lasting relevance. KSU is basically only relevant when they have one of those conference championship type seasons. Oregon v. Texas, the Rose Bowl (just because it's the Rose Bowl), and the Orange Bowl are all higher profile than this game at least. And a few other games are probably equal to this matchup (i.e. One team has large national appeal and the other has only regional appeal)
|38 weeks 5 days ago||Not sure why people on here are so high on UGA.||
I'd rather play UGA than Texas. Yeah, Gurley will get his yards, but they are down three of their top 5 WR, and their D is well below average. I don't think I'd pick Michigan to win, but UGA hasn't blown out a non-horrendous team all year and they lost to Vandy, which is a worse loss than either of UM's.
Although, I don't see how UGA gets a NYD bowl at this poiint anyway. They don't have a prayer against Auburn so they'll be 8-4 at best. SEC almost certainly gets 2 BCS bids (Probably 2 of Alabama, Auburn, and TAMU) but Georgia will still probably be behind whoever doesn't get a BCS bid + LSU, SoCar, Mizzou, and possibly Ole Miss.

Pretty sure Brian Greise went once after two or three other QBs declined invitations.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Some might object to "funky"||
Sounds like a semantical argument, though. Kennard loads his shot from about chin-high, which is non-traditional, and not what you'd see in a John Beilein instructional video.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Our lone '14 commit||
Ricky Doyle is a high 3*/ low 4* Center. But as far as "dominant" bigs, the best shots are in 2015. Stephen Zimmerman and Diamond Stone. Watch a Sophomore highlight tape of either of those guys and you'll be sold. Zimmerman looks like he could be the second coming of DirkNowitzki.

Marlin Jackson WAS a Poor Man's Charles Woodson.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||I think Tall Ball looks||
I think Tall Ball looks better if you assume Donnal contributes (which I think he can) and break down the PF/C as...
PF: McGary (20)/ GRIII(10)/ Donnal (10)
C: Morgan (18)/ Horford (12)/McGary (10)
With Bielfeldt getting mins during blowouts and when 2 or more of the above get in foul trouble.

Watching the Braves destroy baseballs, mostly.

What if Da'Shawn Hand wanted to be a Sociologist?
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Neither of your scenarios were plausible.||
The first because the inbounds man was 92 feet from the basket, and the second because we were up three so beating us the length of the court for a lay-up wouldn't matter.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Every team in the top ten||
has a guy on one of their blogs saying this exact thing, and they're all right. Which means one of them is actually wrong. Hopefully it's you.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||That's a tad melodramatic.||
Plus, the entire first paragraph was about THJ.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||It certainly wasn't the most||
It certainly wasn't the most efficient 25 points, but he did have more points than FGA which isn't inefficient either. And he had 8 assists. Trey wasn't the problem, our third and fourth leading scorers going 4/16 from the field for 12 points were.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Serously?||
Yeah, if we start like that we'll definitely lose to Alcorn State in the first round... even if that were true, why in the world would we start out playing a 15/16 seed in (most likely) Auburn Hills as poorly as we did playing #3 Indiana in Bloomington?

There's a reason that the ONLY fans that prefer women's basketball to men's are fans of schools that have elite women's teams and average-at-best men's programs. Otherwise, it's like preferring Arena League football to the NFL.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||You're a fool. Even if you just assume||
That our QB play will be greatly improved, there is not a single player on our roster next year that could be a better runner of the football than Denard. Did you see how much better a running back he was than anyone else on our roster despite never playing the position before? MAYBE we're better with someone else at QB, but there's no way the overall ability of that roster improves with the subtraction of Denard.

It's an obvious Alannis Morrisette reference.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Original Title||
I saw it and figured it was some guy talking about Zak Irvin. Unfortunately I clicked on it because I like to see what mgobloggers think about Michigan recruits and instead got 25 rants about how poor a thread title it is and 20 (now 21) About how stupid it is to complain. What I really don't understand is the ppl that say they wasted time reading the post because they thought it was going to be about Irvin de-committing/dying(???)/deciding to become a Buddhist monk. Meanwhile the post was actually exactly what the title should have indicated to anyone who wasn't willfully ignorant: general thoughts on Irvin's potential as a collegiate basketball player. It's really not that complicated, guys.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||No big deal, IMO.||
Already faced Pitt and KSU, which are both just as bruising (if not more so) on the interior as WVU is.

He'd be skipping the mid-major head coaching step that most have him slated for next, but I think he'd be a great hire.

is not predictive.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||I agree.||
FSU probably beats UF next week. If USC beats Notre Dame, then I think we end up with Oregon (if they beat OR St. next week) vs. SEC champ. If Oregon loses that game or the Pac 12 championship, then the next team in line would be KSU or FSU.

Koger and Ecker (and Shawn Thompson and Massaquoi) were indeed "not chopped liver." Joppru was more like sirloin steak, though. 2nd round pick/2nd TE selected overall in '03 draft. Unfortunately, injuries prevented him from ever making an impact for the Texans.

I get really sick of ppl saying that Alabama is a representation of Ess-Eee-See football as a whole. Alabama and LSU are on another level from the rest of their conference. If Michigan were playing, say, UGA's SEC Schedule, we could win the SEC East for the chance to get thrashed by Bama on a neutral field like we did last night (which UGA will probably do this season just as they did last year before getting trounced by LSU).
