"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Not to split hairs but it’s actually "presumed innocent until proven guilty"
A conviction (or acquittal) means absolutely nothing about whether or not you actually committed a crime. Just ask OJ Simpson... or Ryan Braun

I was just about to make a post about this because I heard the same thing and it caught me off guard.
FWIW here's a link to his rivals page. Not very informative.
I'm guessing nothing comes of it...

Isn't his dad the one that started the school where Canteen/Watson go basically to ensure that his son ended up at USC?
Moreover, didn't Sills commit to USC when he was like 13 or 14?
Seems like a weird offer.

Probably OT ... even in the offseason.
|47 weeks 4 days ago||As someone||
As someone who worked as a prosecutor I think it’s critically important to point out that the idea of "innocent till proven guilty" is a total misnomer and not actually a thing in this country.
The real saying is "presumed innocent until proven guilty." I know it’s nuanced, but just because you're proven innocent does not mean you are actually innocent. Just look at OJ Simpson.
As such, please PRESUME he is innocent, but know that even if acquitted, he may be very very guilty.
Or maybe not...

How about the Jibreel Black one handed sack in overtime?
I was at the game and it looked super awesome live...

Is that Shane Morris behind Mattison's right shoulder in the picture above -- the guy wearing khaki pants and a headset?
Perhaps this was the "injury" many alluded to when they said that we might try and get him a Medical Redshirt?
Or I'm dumb, and it's just not him and its some GA or team manager...

Less than 30 second after the announcement. Well done Ace.

Because Rondo would have cost them way more than Knight.
Probably would have cost them Monroe.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Are you implying||
Are you implying that the cost of litigation/settlement is going to exeed the cost Detroit residents would have paid in the long run?
If you are, you are wrong.
Sure it will cost an arm and a leg in the upcoming months/years, but it will eventually pay for itself tenfold.
Just ask United Airlines...

He always seemed like a total Blowhard to me...
I bet the show sucks for the following reasons:
1) He is a blowhard
2) ESPN has the PC Police on speedial limiting any actual discourse
3) ESPN isnt the only dog in the show anymore -- people don't have to watch shows like "The Sports Reporters" to get their sports fix if they don't want too...which few do...except old people
4) Its probably going to air in the coveted "right after the Midwest Poker Stars" slot which no one cares about. Honestly, if the progaming on ESPN is lame how many of us actually flip to ESPN2 hoping there's something better over than than whatever's airing on the mothership
5) No one gave a crap about his shows on MSNBC or the channel he tried to start after getting canned for being a blowhard that no one watched. Am I missing something, but what's different here except "sports"

Did you hear the one about the guy who got shot and it blew off the whole left part of his face...?
Well, don't worry, he's ALL RIGHT...

Looks like there are 3 other Parade All Americans in the Big Ten
Peter Jok -- Iowa
Mark Loving -- Ohio
Luke Fischer -- Indiana
Not a huge deal, but maybe should be corrected...

I'd argue that posting something like that without knowing all the facts is gross negligence...

Every team in the league lacks talent in certain areas. As you mentioned our O-line sucks and are safety play has been atrocious all season.

I'm a bears fan, so I'm rooting for the lions to to tonight, but that TD was absurd.

Its actually "presumed innocent until guilty" -- there is a big difference between actually being innocent and being presumed innocent.

I am I crazy, or was he never really interested in Michigan. I thought he was a sparty lock real early on, because that whole "UM Didnt know my name and called me Tom Gholston" thing has always seemed like a bunch of BS

Hell spend the night in jail and he'll plead guilty to tomorrow morning for time considered served and a $200 fine...
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Not sure he ever see's GenPop||
Having worked as both a prosecutor and an assistant attorney general who litigates on behalf of the state against prisoner complaints I can say somewhat confidently that he will not ever be allowed in the prison's general population.
He's too high profile, its too risky, and everyone from the OP to my dog knows what would happen.
Can you imagine the shitstorm if he sued the prison system for negligence/recklessness for allowing him to meet one of the prison's real "tickle monsters?" Worse yet, can you imagine a law suit if someone shanked him and his estate sued the Penn. prison system or a 700K wrongful death lawsuit...?
While some would proffer that his behavior was so outrageous it should offer him no protection on the inside, we have this thing called "the constitution" and it frequently impedes vigilantism/street justice.
Maybe I'm wrong, but I would bet he spends the rest of his miserable existance in isolation...

As a prosecutor I can tell you that listing witnesses is far more about preserving your right to call them at trial than it is about your actual intent to call them...

I know I read somewhere that a couple kids are trying to EE. I know Shane can't, and I know it's usually a fluid situation (think DG), but does anyone have a working list?
