Crean is a complete douche who needs to stop putting his hands down his pants and also has to learn to get off the court when there are players anywhere in his general vicinity. They refs need to realize we're not at assembly hall and Indiana shouldn't be getting preferential treatment. Lastly, IU needs to realize they're not actually a good basketball team and start missing some shots.

The imperius curse! Lord Pelini-mort must be using mind control on the AD.

"They got the Golden Arches, mine is the Golden Arcs. They got the Big Mac, I got the Big Mick. We both got two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions, but their buns have sesame seeds. My buns have no seeds."

Nice, I do like Tilted Kilt. The ladies there have very nice boo...err, drink specials. Yes, they have very nice drink specials.

Champ Bailey minus a step or two >>>>> Any CB that Lions have had recently with all their steps intact.
That said, a one or maybe two year contract guy like Champ is not going to cut it. That money would be better suited to go towards a younger but still proven cover man on one side with a cheaper, unproven guy with tons of potential on the other (2nd or 3rd rounder). Champ would be nice, but he's not the answer to our db woes. Finnegan fits the Lions football "bad boys" style of play, but is trouble/a fine waiting to happen and won't be cheap. I'd personally like to see the Lions go after Sam Shields if he decides to test out the free agent market....

When I was 8 years old, I was the ball boy for a bunch of games during the second season of the fab five. Juwan Howard was by far the nicest and went out of his way to interact with us...can't say I was a huge fan of Jalen though.

Beilein is certainly not going to win that. I'm thinking Tony Bennett from Virginia. WSU season's was amazing to say the least, but I don't know a soul who thought Virginia would have such an incredible season and take the ACC regular season crown (or even compete for it for that matter).

We lose the last season's POY. We lose another first rounder. We lose a preseason all-american early in year. Then...we win an outright Big Ten title. At Michigan, Beilein doesn't rebuild, he reloads. Hail to the Victors!

I can't see any trade happening. Don "Giraffe" Kelly and Lombo...however you spell it will have to step up and get some time in left if Rajai lives up to his reputation against righties. Maybe it might be worth considering shuffling around the infield as needed to get Castellanos back at LF...
|4 days 4 hours ago||Honestly, I prefer Rajai||
Honestly, I prefer Rajai Davis in left over Dirks, so this isn't the end of the world. He may not have the best BA, but he makes you pay when he gets on base. Still, it would've been nice to start off the season with those two playing the matchups, but I think Davis will make for a decent everyday LF until we're back to full strength. Here's to a speedy and thorough recovery!

I find it quite humorous when other teams' fans try to make digs at the Lions or their fans. Like seriously? I root for the goddamn Detroit Lions, what on earth could you possibly say that I don't already know and/or could get under my skin?
Lions fans are essentially sparring partners for world class boxers. Our NFL hopes get beat up and ko'd for a living by the hardest punchers in the world. Having someone slap us in the face feels no different to us than a fly landing on the nose of someone else.

It's absurd because as admirable and impressive as it is for a star student athlete to get their degree, it shouldn't be the basis for determining whether or not the university honors what you did on on the court for the school. Getting a degree is a benefit for yourself (you said it yourself), not the school. The rules allow for someone to leave early without the promise of having to return. If in the time you were at Michigan, you gave your all, made the whole country turn their heads back towards the direction of Ann Arbor, all the while you were doing all this with class, then you should be in contention to be honored. A degree would just be a little more icing on the cake, but by no by means the rule.
|4 days 8 hours ago||It's quite possible to get||
It's quite possible to get your degree even if you are a star player who gets drafted early. Shaq did it, Vince Carter did it, and there are many others who did or are in the process of doing it. While I'm with you that getting a degree is an absurd prerequisite for getting your number retired/honored, there is definitely something be said about guys who stay long enough to earn their degree and/or go back to get it.

When a thread is built upon a unsubstantiated rumor found on RCMB, and the MGoThread's OP has nothing new or insightful to add, it must be removed. So while it turned out Urban was indeed in the hospital (for something less dramatic than yesterday's thread implied), this is the only post on the topic that was ever needed or wanted.

I know someone who served as Director of Operations for a non-revenue sport at U of M, and that position was primarily as a support and/or administrative personnel. So who knows, the football D.O. may very well have a lot less impact on the team than the title is seeming to lead many to believe...

If theRCMB folks think their thread is going to get pulled soon because it is a baseless rumor, why in the world would you think this has a chance to stay up here?

...yet we're the best in the big ten this year anyways. So now I can finally officially say: Michigan basketball doesn't rebuild, we reload! Go Blue, B1G champs.

I mean, good for him, that's awesome and extremely impressive, but this post is beyond random.

But I down vote anything "uniformz" related, most especially if they are fake uniformzzz.

In his defense, the OP did ask people how it sounds to them. Champswest simply was stating his opinion, which he had been invited to provide.

It was absolutely winnable this year as well. Like you said, Assembly Hall is a beast. Insane crowd and home cooked calls like no other in our conference. I'd rather do just a road game at pretty much any other B1G arena (yes, even Breslin, VCA and Kohl's).

I can spare an upvote or 10.
|1 week 2 days ago||Shame on you||
About a dozen people just stood up and started glaring into my cubicle wondering why I suddenly broke out into a loud, uncontrollable fit of laughter. I hope you're happy now.
|1 week 2 days ago||Well then, regardless of what||
Well then, regardless of what happens between now and the end of the regular season, we should just give the B1G championship to MSU. With Dawsen back, their team this year is probably in the top ten NCAA basketball teams of all time. When healthy, I think they would probably even sweep the best Wooden + Lew Alcindor UCLA team in a best of 7 series.
Come to think of it, shouldn't we just give them the NCAA championship while we're at it? With Payne still getting into the groove, Appling's boo boo and Dawsen just now coming back, it's unfair to make them risk getting injured again while playing games to prove they're the best when we all already know it's true.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yeah, the jokes suck, and||
Yeah, the jokes suck, and some people in the world really suck more than words can every describe. But a very common defense mechanism for some people when confronted by something that makes them feel so uncomfortable and sick is by using humor to dehumanize the situation. And you can't fault them/us for that. But, regardless, this thread probably should be locked down at this point.

He was insinuating that sexual inclinations are not dictated by marriage law. In other words, just because you are in an area where you can't legally marry someone, it doesn't mean the doing the dirty on the DL will not be did, ya dig?
