North Carolina and ___VIRGINIA___ are the crown jewels of the ACC? In what world? Am I supposed to be smelling toast? Am I having a stroke and just don't know it yet?

To be fair, he clearly took the quiz himself multiple times daily and only got himself correct, thereby inflating his numbers and lowering everyone else's precentage. Joke aside, its pretty incredulous to believe <40% of OSU fans couldn't get Troy Smith and Archie Griffin.

Autographs are lame if you're the one asking someone to sign something. If you got it as a gift (and therefore wasn't the one shoving something in a kids face), you're set.

I got Derrick Green's art teacher to get him to sign a football for me after class. In retrospect, I feel like that was probably breaking some sort of "teacher ethics" or something, but oh well.
Guess I should probably put it up on ebay now. 4star QB worth $250, a 5star RB has gotta get me at least 2 c-notes. /s

I had to call in alot of favors to get her to do this. She said she never felt as unprofessional asking a student to autograph memorabilia after class.

My friend is Derrick Green's art teacher. He said he will keep #27 at Michigan. She got him to sign a ball for me. Just FYI for anyone who cares about jersey numbers.
EDIT: And then I decided to not be lazy and read the post directly above mine. Oops, redundant.

You think people will still be using napkins in the year 2020? Or is this mouth vacuum thing for real?

Cool for those of us in Virginia to have a short travel to a UM game, but Va Tech is definitely in decline. Still better than another MACky-cake game.

I think, with all due respect, you just hit the nail right on the head with your first paragraph: Denard/Brady are reverred by all; the Fab Five gets a mixed reaction. When two people doing the exact same thing illicit different responses simply because of who is more popular... well, isn't that the very definition "it's really more about you (and your biases), than them (and their actions)"?
|6 weeks 8 hours ago||The Big Ten Network cut more||
The Big Ten Network cut more often to shots of Denard Robinson jumping up and down in the stands during any average game he attended this season than CBS did to the Fab Five last night. It's not a strawman, it's apples to apples.

You can't possiby be serious. You will have to get me a copy of Robert's Rules of Order: Celebrity Edition so if I ever become famous I'll know exactly the etiquette to timing my enterance into events.
I have a pretty fair suspicion that had they waited 5 minutes and CBS cut to them coming down the aisle during the game, you'd be on about how they were "fashionably late" to try to steal the attention and should've been in their seats before the tip-off like real fans.

Yeah, Denard, Kovacs, and Roundtree have been upstaging this team all year by being in the Maize Rage instead of a suite. Hey, does anyone have a down-to-the-minute breakdown of when they entered the arena this season for basketball games? We really need to get the bottom of this selfish, aggrandizing Michigan athletes supporting other Michigan athletes tomfoolery.

I once turned up entering an arena right as the National Anthem was playing. I wasn't trying to upstage America.

This is an idiotic rant. If we made the national title game in football next season and Denard and Tom Brady showed up for it, you wouldn't be saying this. No one would pass off fans going "oh, look, it's Denard" as "taking away attention from the current team." No one would chalk up the fact Tom Brady has a mic stuck in his face for a comment after the game as him thinking its all about him. Walking the sidelines before the game? I guess at UTL Steve Everitt was trying to make it all about himself being the first to congratulate Roundtree on the winning touchdown. He probably should've understood it wasn't his time anymore.
This is an asinine post from someone who pretty frequently likes to start "look at me, I have a strong take on the Jim Rome show"-esque posts.
|6 weeks 8 hours ago||What did they do exactly to||
What did they do exactly to steal the spotlight? They're famous. They don't really have any control over whether CBS shows them or someone sticks a microphone in their face after the game. Kevin Ware must be a total egomaniac attention-whore by this logic.

Agreed. If opening day could move to Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, I'd be much more ready for it.

Grant won with Capel's recruits, technically. And yeah, Smart couldn't have done what he did so quickly had VCU not lucked out with two above-average coaches before him to stabilize the program with decent players. Obvious things are obvious.
Melvin Johnson and Jordan Burgess were both Top 100 recruits that came in last year, which was pretty unheard of before Shaka. I think he has a really highly ranked PG coming in this year too but I can't remember the kid's name. (He also got Jamie Skeen who was probably VCU's best player in the Final Four run to transfer from Wake Forest, not a Grant recruit.) He can't recruit with Calipari, but he's recruiting better (from a pure recruiting rankings standpoint) than anyone before him.
If you were looking at VCURamNation.com, those people are pretty unhinged. They are utterly convinced that Havoc is unstoppable and worked on Michigan because we had 2 turnovers higher than our average. 95% of the people on there did not follow VCU before the Final Four run and think they're a basketball superpower. They also litter their board with references to fODU and fGMU and fUR (F--- old dominion, george mason, and richmond) but openly deny that they have a rivalry with any of those schools because "their program is on a completely different level." I wouldn't take them seriously.

Smart won his league's title one season ago.
Grant is an above-average coach. He also had the benefit of his three years being the exact three years that two of the three greatest players in VCU overlapped (Eric Maynor and Larry Sanders). Smart made that run (and made the NCAA twice more and won a game both times) with no one who'll sniff the NBA.
