"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

The NFL is responsible for Bill Simmons being fired? Probably the best thing the NFL has done in its history.

Blue Jays #1 (Norris), #4 (Alford), and #11 (Boyd) prospects. Norris is a real nice piece.

The GPAs being talked about are the incoming athletes high-school GPAs.

I don't know about that at all. I mean, it has only even been DB-exclusive for like three years.

Will he eat a lemon at this show? I want to know he's going to play the hits before I buy a ticket.
|4 days 3 hours ago||You don't get it sped up.||
You don't get it sped up. It's called an injunction. You go in front of a judge and make the point that there is no way to undo the punishment -- i.e. Brady cannot miss the first four games and then retroactively go back and play in them if he wins the case -- and if the judge agrees, he/she would enter an order that the NFL isn't allowed to carry out the suspension until the case is decided. So if the case ended 6 games into the season and Brady lost, he'd then serve his suspension from game 7-10.
This is very common in civil cases.

He would ask a court to file an injunction for that exact reason and it'd hold of the punishment until the court case was ajudicated.

6'4" SG out of Pinkerington. Class of 2016. Was considered huge Indiana lean and may not have had Michigan offer officially until today.
EDIT: Whoops, missed OPs link to the 247 profile page.

For the benefit of those who do not have the app, you're missing out on such quality info as: "mother fucker sang in school, never played the game, comes on here posting ahit anout [sic] girls and drugs and is a 40 year old dad, in the world of PC, hes a [all caps not nice word]!!!"
To be fair, that's an all-time hot take right there.

I wish him nothing but the best. One of the few things I disagree with this blog on is the worshipful reverence of Norfleet, a guy who has -- what?? One kickoff return past midfield in three years? -- limited success on the field. It just wasn't there.

I also would like some feedback from anyone who's been there before. Lots of tickets on the visitors side just a few rows from field on stubhub for reasonable prices but all listed as obstructed view. But image search for stadium shows no poles or anything like that. Is it just that the seats are down low and weird angles or am I missing something?

Henne, Harmon, Carter, Woodson, Harbaugh.
You have our all-time passing leader, arguably the greatest player in college football history, arguably our best WR of all-time (albei no Heisman), the only defensive player ever to win a Heisman, and a young coach who has won BCS games and been to the Super Bowl.

ND plays ASU? Do you mean ASU vs Texas A&M?
TAN: if ASU wins that, look out, dark horse playoff contender brewing.

I think Utah wanted the cache of it "kicking off" the college football season (technically UNC vs So Carolina kicks off before UM/Utah) and Brandon agreed. I don't mind the very, very infrequent Thursday night game.

Church Hill, about a block from St Johns. Always looking for more people in RVA to watch the game with at bars; the official turnout at the UMAA parties at Gus' Bar and Grill is sad. :(
Jaronclay (at) hot mail (dot) com if you're ever looking to watch a game somewhere downtown/the fan/church hill. Please put mgoblog in the subject line so it doesn't get caught in my spam filter. (Open invite for other RVA area boardies.)

Great hiking all around there if that's your thing. Richmond is about an hour away and has a bunch of historic stuff to do, you can see the church where Patrick Henry gave the give me liberty or give me death speech. Great art museum in Richmond. Lots of great breweries. There is a "watch Michigan football in Charlottesville" Facebook page which might give you some more Charlottesville specific ideas. I'm in Richmond and really like Charlottesville but I could not tell you the best things to do around there other than the downtown mall.

I thought Scherzer wasn't allowed to pitch by rule since he started Sunday?

You're declaring us a bubble team 16 months before the season starts? Oooook there, little buddy.

I would never get the $5 pizza but it's not the worst pizza I've ever tasted so it's ok at the price, I suppose. Now, the $8 deep dish, particularly if you get it custom made with your favorite topping (mushrooms for me) and its fresh off the oven, really really good. Terrible health wise but a guilty pleasure once a year or so.

Saad is only 22, Nyquist is about to be 26. I think it's likely Nyquist is as close to as good as he's going to get whereas Saad still has room to improve. That said, I think the Nyquist signing is a very fair.
