My brother-in-law is South African and when I spent some time there I was able to visit Robben Island... it was shocking. These are the kind of things we would hear about from the 1800s, not 20 years ago.
Mandela's life was certainly an inspiration. When it comes to the 2 movies that are being discussed, I think both were very well done. My major issue with Matt Damon as Pienaar is even though he bulked up, Damon was not the physically imposing freak that Pienaar was. According to the internet the best person who could have portrayed him physically is probably Brian Urlacher.

They are not a member of the InterFraternity Council, having been kicked out due to hazing a couple years ago, but their national body put them on probation rather than disband the chapter. So... they exist as an SAE fraternity, but not as a full fledged Michigan IFC member.

As a freshman and in the tournament not the final. Tore a ligament in my hand and that was enough mud bowling for me.

Fox also loses the rights if they don't make movies using the franchise frequently enough. Thus:
ALL THE WOLVERINE MOVIES!
|21 hours 6 min ago||Is it really stopping someone||
Is it really stopping someone if they stop themselves? Goalies don't get a save if it's not a shot on goal.
|23 hours 45 min ago||Powerplay||
2 questions that could help answer M's powerplay improvement:
1 - how have they been on PP faceoffs? (i checked and this isn't available info from box scores)
2 - How are they entering the zone? Is it with possession? When they had guys who were great at puck possession (like Hensick) the plan to enter the zone was "give it to Hensick" (side note, great way to do it. Blackhawks do this with Kane often. Wings with Pavel too). How are they trying to establish the PP now?
If these two things are better than they were last year, that could explain the uptick in PP goal %

So did Garnder really disgrace the #98 because he didn't win the Heisman, or get a standing O from Ohio State fans? (although he did get a lot of appreciation on twitter...)
Did Mark Harmon say that he was glad that his dad's efforts and acheivements would be recognized, but that if Gardner wasn't good enough it would be a disgrace?
No. These jerseys are to be worn and used and played in. Obviously the 3 heisman winner's jerseys wont be lived up to every year (I assume the #2 is getting the treatment really soon) because Michigan players won't come in 1-2-3 in the Heisman every year. That's not the point. The point is "Desmond was great. We should make sure that when #21 is on the field we think of Desmond Howard". Not "Man, Gardner really tarnished Harmon's legacy"
|1 day 1 hour ago||So who is deserving?||
Do you think that Desmond saw that honor as "no one is good enough to wear my jersey unless they win a heisman?" Or do you think that Desmond might want his honor, you know, worn and on the field?
|1 day 1 hour ago||He plays||
and he returns kicks, and probably punts next year, both of which Desmond did. Avery wasn't playing when he was awarded a legends jersey, same with Brandon Moore, but they were seniors, and saw the field.
If you don't think a little guy returning kicks should wear 21... who should? If the standards are ridiculously high who is ever going to wear one of these? Does Morgan really "Deserve" to wear a president's number?
|1 day 1 hour ago||I respectfully disagree||
I just think that what's cool about the numbers is actually having them on the field. #1 hasn't been worn since Braylon made a huge deal about "deserving" it.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Funchess wearing #1||
I like that, if he gets moved to WR on the depth chart officially
|1 day 2 hours ago||I don't think Funchess will get 21||
If anyone gets #21 it should be Norfleet. I don't think that the "criteria" for the legend jerseys have been established as of yet besides nominal positions and some seniority.
IMO #21 should go to a tiny receiver/returner, so Norfleet is perfect.
#11 is also available as Avery is graduating, and I'd love to see it on a DL. Willy Henry perhaps?

So the criticism is the meat? or the only important part?

|1 day 21 hours ago||I don't think we disagree too much||
But I see a big difference between Bo announcing to a team that he'll treat them all the same (Like Dogs!) and a coach, in a Study Hall no less, screaming at a player inches from his face.
Granted, it's easy in hindsight to say "he should take the player outside, explain that he crossed a line, etc" but what happened obviously wasn't appropriate either if an academic counselor filed a report. Was it fireable? I dont know. Was it wrong? Sure.
|1 day 23 hours ago||I disagree||
I didn't play in college but I played pretty competitive high school hockey and have also coached some. There are different leadership styles as well as different ways that players will learn/respond. As a coach I thought one of my jobs was to coach each player how he would best respond to coaching. Some kids you can yell at. Some kids you have to nudge in the right direction. Some you can say "shoot faster" or "Move the puck" while others you need to set it up for them to see.
Both coaches just had horrible things happen to them. Which reaction was "better"? Hoke putting his arm around Hagerup or this?
|1 day 23 hours ago||Surprising||
Are we really surprised that Dave Brandon likes to hear himself talk? I'm just surprised that he didn't delve in to the synergy that Coach Hoke is cultivating in and around the dynamic Schembechler Hall as he innovates strategic collaboration to maximize the enterprise that is Michigan Football.

The valentines day was 8+ years ago and we're not getting married until 2015 (when we'll have been dating 10 years) but yeah, worked out pretty well!
|2 days 20 hours ago||2 options||
1 - talk about it. I'm not sure how old you are but depending on age/general plans for the holiday/etc you could always say "so Christmas is coming up.." not that you should invite this person to your family whatever, but you could see what their plans are. You could also agree on a price for gifts - that way one of you doesn't get a $25 present while the other gets a $200 something that turns into a "where is this going?" present.
2 - If you aren't at the point where you should do gifts, something small really can't hurt. I started dating my now fiance about 10 days before valentines day. She got me a small frame with a picture of us. I got her a rose (we were broke freshmen). Went well.

My current living/parking situation makes skating pretty tough. Walking a couple blocks with equipment after skating doesn't appeal to me. Hopefully next year.

|2 days 22 hours ago||Agreed||
How about against the top defenses in his own conference? That might show some more itneresting results
|2 days 22 hours ago||Yup||
Fiance is in AA finishing up grad school before she joins me in Chicago this spring. Timing worked out really well
|2 days 22 hours ago||Fiance... but...||
Got us Winter Classic tickets. More for her, as I'm a Chicagoan and Blackhawks fan, but should be a fun time. She's a big Wings fan and I like hockey, so it works.
|2 days 22 hours ago||I know||
But if you had edited yours and clicked save while I was in this box typing up my response, you could have edited before I clicked save, and your edit would be locked any my reply would look stupid.
It's happened before. In this case, I guess I just missed "almost". Apologies.
|2 days 23 hours ago||Good point||
Not sure if the post was edited to reflect "almost" or if I had a reading comprehension fail.
Either way, I'm a big fan of defense and share the general excitement about the potential of this group next year.
