US-23 is the worst for that. The right lane is full of semis at all times. And then the left lane becomes the "regular" lane and half the people in it drive 65.

The NCAA doesn't have subpoena power, so it can't do much if the involved parties just clam up. Typically it has to get lucky and have law enforcement turn something up, like in the Ed Martin case.

I think an update about his baby son is worth posting.

They don't call us "fans" (short for fanatics) for nothing.

You should make that your signature, to avoid any confusion.

In order to receive a 6th year, you need to submit medical evidence of having missed two seasons due to injury. We know he missed most of 2016 with the knee injury, but we may not have had evidence that his other redshirt (in 2012) was medically-related.
It may be that he wasn't injured the other time, so the ruling is legitimate. What has people frustrated that Ed Davis for MSU got a 6th year when it seemed that he wasn't injured the first time either.

That's not the issue. If you're injured in the 4th game of the season you can a medical redshirt. The question is whether he was injured in 2012, when he redshirted. If it was a regular redshirt, he wouldn't be eligible for the 6th year.

Yeah. Fans overestimate how difficult it is to make the tourney. Pretty much all the bubble teams are having seasons like ours.
|1 day 2 hours ago||No idea why all these kids||
Well, why do so many guys want to go to Michigan? The chance to play for a prestigious program in front of 100,000 every week matters to a lot of them, too. They may have plans to play in the NFL, but that doesn't mean they don't want to have a great college experience, too.

Is Walton good to go? He took a hard fall at the end of the UW game.

It's amazing how once a kid commits, no matter how highly-rated, suddenly a lot of fans get bored with him and obsess over the next uncommitted prospect (only to get bored with him once he commits, too).

Say that a "limited number of seats are still available" to those who want to walk up to the arena on the day of the event.

If they want to claim tickets and not show, fine, whatever. Hilarious.
If they actually go, and try to harass our players at that event, that's another story. I could see some OSU fans being deranged enough to do that.

Yeah, that could be a confounding factor in his particular case. Per his wikipedia page, he boxed in 18 fights over five years.

To be fair, they went to Europe right after the school year ended. Their season went all the way to the Final Four, and then they had to go home and take finals, and then go to Europe for a few weeks. They didn't have much of a chance to rest.

That article on recruiting rankings is actually three years old, but it's interesting, nonetheless.
|5 days 2 hours ago||The first decade of Ilitch's||
The first decade of Ilitch's ownership of the Tigers was bleak. The Tigers were one of the worst franchises in baseball for most of that time. For awhile they didn't spend much money, with the justification being that they needed a new stadium. After the stadium was constructed, they still didn't spend that much in the first few years, claiming that they needed to pay down their share of the construction costs.
However, after that humiliating 2003 season (43-119), when the Tigers were basically a glorified AAA team, Ilitch finally opened up the checkbook and began to spend what it took to make the franchise competitive. Since that time he's been a model owner.

The lengths we go through just to be able to predict a high school kid's college decision a couple of weeks before it's announced.

In Europe you see kids in water wings all over the place. They seem to be only be "dangerous" in America.

I never like our chances when Bama is our primary competition. I've learned not to expect good outcomes in these cases. I would love to be wrong.

Dude, we were getting called for a lot of ticky-tack garbage last night. Wagner's fifth personal (to cite one example) was a phantom call. Wisconsin may be a physical team but they also know how to sell marginal/nonexistant contact to the officials.

You can be upset with how the program has performed the last 2.5 seasons and be concerned for the future. But going revisionist about Beilein's job performance prior to 2015 is silly. Coaches aren't unchangeable robots. They can get better and worse at their jobs over time, like anyone else.

I know you're upset with Beilein right now, and it's not necessarily unwarranted, but this is over the top.
