|3 hours 26 min ago||They haven't really had bad||
They haven't really had bad luck in the lottery. They just haven't been able to beat the odds. Their bigger problem is that they always win a bunch of games at the end when they should be tanking.
|3 hours 28 min ago||What makes you think||
What makes you think Cleveland is where LeBron wanted to go?
|23 hours 33 min ago||What is a "good demographic||
What is a "good demographic area"? A place with low Waffle House density?
|1 day 20 hours ago||I read through part of that||
I read through part of that thread. It appears that Strassini himself makes an appearance on page 6, using the name "alwaysthere." Funny to see this guy squirm.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Barkley was a really good||
Barkley was a really good athlete. He had fantastic leaping ability. He couldn't play PF at 6'5" or whatever otherwise.
|4 days 17 hours ago||Pedantry alert: a fiancé is a||
Pedantry alert: a fiancé is a man engaged to be married. A fiancée is a woman engaged to be married.
|5 days 6 hours ago||That would be more "Bill||
That would be more "Bill Martin'd".
Brandon is more of the "spend money to make money" school of thought. Martin was more . . . cautious at spending the bucks.
|5 days 22 hours ago||I can't believe they did that||
I can't believe they did that to the MSU series. That is awful. All of the pre-2011 protected series should have remained fixed and then they should have gone from there. I'm really disappointed that they did this. Now our even-numbered year schedules are going to suck even worse than they currently do.
Is this just a preliminary schedule? Is there any way Michigan can complain and get this fixed?
|1 week 1 hour ago||Two problems with Nashville||
Two problems with Nashville as a December destination: no beaches and not particularly warm weather. If I'm going somewhere that time of year, I want those two.
|1 week 1 hour ago||That was classic. I used to||
That was classic. I used to own that poster.
|1 week 20 hours ago||There are no protected rivals||
There are no protected rivals in Big Ten basketball. We've had years where we only played MSU once as well.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Well, that's not great but||
Well, that's not great but it's not necessarily a horrible draw. Northwestern and PSU might be decent next year, while Illinois is kind of a wild card - who knows what to expect. The single-play at OSU is the main disadvantage.
|1 week 23 hours ago||That would be an interesting||
That would be an interesting conversation to have in art class.
"Hey Derrick, can I see you for a minute at my desk?"
(He walks over, uncertain of the reason. Other students assume he's busted.)
"Ms _______, I promise, my papier-maché mask is almost done!"
"So . . . what jersey number are you going to wear next year?"
|1 week 23 hours ago||Walk-ons will share numbers||
Walk-ons will share numbers with scholarship guys. Only the rare few who gain regular playing time (like Kovacs) get the number for themselves.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Amazing how RCMB posters know||
Amazing how RCMB posters know more about our coaches' recruiting pitches than we do.
|1 week 1 day ago||That's not a surprise; his||
That's not a surprise; his father endorsed Nike for years.
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm kind of surprised he||
I'm kind of surprised he still gets severance pay given the horrific scandal that occurred under his watch.
|1 week 1 day ago||It's hard to argue otherwise||
It's hard to argue otherwise when they're still playing two Big Ten teams per year. Playing Purdue and MSU but not Michigan is pretty lame.
|1 week 1 day ago||I don't know if football||
I don't know if football programs do (probably not many BCS-conference programs), but most athletic departments as a whole are in the red.
|1 week 1 day ago||Why are the dollar amounts so||
Why are the dollar amounts so random? Why doesn't anyone make a round number, like say $800,000?
|1 week 3 days ago||I've never understood how||
I've never understood how someone could make generalizations about the physical appearance of students at a school of 40,000. In my experience at Michigan, there were girls that fit into every possible category ("hot sorority girl" included).
The "They have ugly girls" thing is a typically juvenile, little-brother insult. Why people here internalize it, I don't understand.
|1 week 3 days ago||I certainly would prefer for||
I certainly would prefer for them to wrap up their recruitment sooner rather than later. Recruiting is more stressful when it's a winter's tale.
|1 week 4 days ago||I like that the prediction is||
I like that the prediction is "100%".
Folks, I think we have broken the space-time continuum.
|1 week 4 days ago||Impressive. What is his time||
Impressive. What is his time in the 100?
|1 week 4 days ago||That is one of the greatest||
That is one of the greatest headlines of all time.
|1 week 5 days ago||That Nike deal we signed in||
Not really. That was when everyone was signing university-wide deals with apparel companies. That first Nike deal actually wasn't that lucrative - it paid us about $1 million a year. OSU actually signed a more lucrative deal with Nike not long after.
|1 week 5 days ago||The refs got it right on||
The refs got it right on replay - not a catch.
|1 week 5 days ago||I've heard that the halo was||
I've heard that the halo was actually Lee Bollinger's idea.
|1 week 6 days ago||Exactly. Nowadays, being an||
Exactly. Nowadays, being an AD is as much about expanding revenue streams as it is hiring coaches. Brandon is doing the job for which he was hired. His successor will pick up where he left off.
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||Ligue 1 is actually going to||
Ligue 1 is actually going to have its sixth different champion in six years. Granted, this period of parity may be coming to an end, but the league has been very unpredictable in recent years. Absolutely no one saw Montpellier winning it last year.
