It was something about allegedly klling 5 hookers.

You guys might be joking, but we have everything that we need for a dominant air raid offense. I'd take Mike Leach in a heart beat.

"I do have to say Hoke/Brandon have done a wonderful job of curing me of my irrational emotional involvement in the success of the football team."
That is by far the best explanation of how I feel.
|23 hours 9 min ago||The same thing that I've done||
The same thing that I've done for the past four Saturdays. I'll be working on getting as much done as I can outside while it is warm and dry. Then, I'll be working on restoring my basement at night.
I didn't renew cable this fall, so I watched the Notre Dame game at my parents' house. I figured Miami would be a comfortable win/blowout or else I wouldn't want to watch. My wife's uncle was installing our new furnace and air conditioner during the Utah game. I got an antenna, watched the first quarter of the Minnesota game, decided I'd watch the 4th quarter if it was close, and then kept working. I didn't have a reason to watch the 4th quarter.
I'm trying to finish my basement by November so that I can refinance my mortgage. Those 3-4 hours every weekend are hard to justify when I know what the outcome is going to be. If they show me that they are able to compete, then I'll watch. Otherwise, I'll use that time to expedite the thing that is going to save me money.

I was thinking about that as well. What makes the comparison worse is that Utah went on to be undefeated, beat Alabama, and finished #3 in the polls.

I've heard from someone closer to the situation than I, that Mark Schlissel doesn't care about sports at all and "probably doesn't know the difference between football and baseball". The speculation on that person's part is that the regents will want Brandon out so that they can have more control over the AD, although he didn't give any reasoning and that part may be unfounded.
I have also heard that when Brandon forces extra donations from the alumni, those donations are coming out of what would normally be donated to the school. So, I could see an academic like Schlissel not being too fond of that.

I'm with you, Profit. I was at the first one and it was the worst day of my Michigan fandom. I don't have any desire whatsoever to relive that feeling by being subjected to replay after replay of that game and blocked field goal.

This is the exact reason I won't be watching the game. This game should not have been scheduled.
Best case scenario: We bludgeon a baby seal that we should bludgeon while being subjected to highlights of a game in which we did not bludgeon the baby seal and the baby seal turned out to be a momma seal and bitch-slapped us.
Worst case scenario: We lose.
In my scenario where I don't watch the game, I get to not see Crable miss an assignment and watch a (hopefully) very entertaining highlight reel.

Anyone else notice in that first picture that one guy is holding up 1, another is holding up 2, another is holding up 3, and another is holding up 4?

Think of it like a tournament. Florida was the #1 seed and Michigan beat them, so now Michigan is the favorite and Florida is out of contention. If a guy recommits, it's because it's a double-loss elimination.

You're right. She doesn't look like she's been plaged by an eating disorder. She must be letting herself go.

Agreed. While I agree most of what OP had to say, he took the average of RR against Hoke's best season. If you look at the direction that the wins each season was/is going RR was at least on the upswing and Hoke has been on the downswing. They both finished their third season with 7 wins. And it's not like Hoke magically built up the team in a single off season. I love Hoke, but that wording is completely disingenuous.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||The loophole that Aereo found||
The loophole that Aereo found is based on the fact that the signal was being broadcast for free. ABC could have easily fixed this themselves by preventing the signal from being broadcast over the air, but then they'd lose out on advertising revenue. It was publicly stated that if the SCOTUS didn't rule in their favor that this was plan B. Now, they can have their cake and eat it too.
I wouldn't mind if this really was violating some kind of law or if the law was changed to ban this, but if you go through the steps, you can't find a legal issue with this. The reasoning behind the ruling boils down to the fact that it should be illegal (and I can agree with that), but the fact that it isn't illegal should mean that they have to rule in the favor of Aereo. I can legally buy an antenna and a DVR and host them at my house. I can legally rent an antenna and a DVR and host them at my house. Shouldn't I be legally allowed to rent an antenna and a DVR and have someone else host them for me? Their answer to this is no because they think that it looks like something else that is illegal.

I don't pay that close of attention to the NBA, but from what I've seen pass through this board, I've never seen him listed as a lottery pick. Everything that I've seen has had him in the 11-17 range.

I don't think MSU will go after him. When they were building the team, they might have, but they are now in a position that the risk on players like that is no longer worth the potential payoff.

"Jayru Campbell, the 17-year-old Cass Technical High School junior quarterback accepted a plea deal that will likely keep him out of jail and his criminal record clean, so long as he abides to the court requirements."
"...Jayru Campbell to serve 60 days jail Friday.
The sentence will begin July 28, after Campbell finishes summer school to make up time he missed because of the incident, with 3 days served."
They seem to be contradicting themselves a bit and it makes the terms of the plea deal unclear.
