So the 0 doesn't mean anything?
|22 hours 24 min ago||Yes||
But wtf does it mean? I'm all for updates from non-revenue sports, but you'd think the people who find it important enough to post stuff like this would want everybody to be able to understand what happened at a basic level.

|2 days 14 hours ago||it's not all bad||
From 2004-2008, I rented two different 550-600 sqft 1 bdrm places with one parking spot for around $700, both of which allowed me to have a dog. One was on Mary St. and the other was at Main and Hill. The maintenance man was a little sketchy, but the places were very livable. (Of course the landlord currently has no availabilities.)
|4 days 15 hours ago||Adding this to Franklin's||
Adding this to Franklin's public 'Nicky Satan' slip, SEC coaches must casually refer to Saban as the devil amongst themselves with some regularity. I like it.
|6 days 16 hours ago||A bunch of football players||
A bunch of football players have been riding around campus on scooters for months. It started maybe a month before Taylor said something to the media about not riding the twosie anymore. I think I asked if anybody knew where they'd all gotten them here at least once but I never got a response.
|1 week 2 days ago||So all of you think violating||
So all of you think violating the state's monopoly on taxing stupidity through lotteries is wrong? Bizarre.
|1 week 2 days ago||Michigan did win the club||
Michigan did win the club national championship this year.
|1 week 3 days ago||so neither of you knows what||
so neither of you knows what an illegal numbers ring is either, eh?
if i thought TP were remotely as self-aware about why he was taking the money as webber seems to have been, i'd be much more impressed by him.
|1 week 3 days ago||i'd be pleased not to talk to you about it, o high and mighty||
I don't actually care if he personally did great harm to the university. I think "student-athletes" should routinely go out of their way to do great harm to their universities, who are continually shamelessly exploiting them.
|1 week 5 days ago||Accepting money from a guy||
Accepting money from a guy running an illegal numbers ring is only wrong if you know that's what he's doing (and if it's actually wrong to run an illegal numbers ring, but since I don't know what that is, I can't really say). Did Webber know where the guy was getting the money? I assume you'd disavow the suggestion that you don't believe in freedom of association if I made it an issue.
Perjuring yourself in federal court might only be wrong if you're committing perjury to avoid punishment for something that's actually immoral. What was he committing perjury to avoid punishment for? If he was committing perjury to help Martin avoid punishment, then again it would depend on what an illegal numbers ring is. But if he was committing perjury to avoid punishment for getting compensated for his work, then it doesn't seem obviously wrong to me.
But I'm probably making a mistake trying to continue a conversation with somebody who thinks that whether or not the NCAA is exploitative is debatable.
|1 week 5 days ago||I only know the basics of the situation||
But it's not obvious to me that Webber did anything wrong. The NCAA regime is obviously, illegally, exploitatively monopolistic. The O'Bannon case is about to make that official. We can't debate the morality of undermining a corrupt system (because the mods don't think we're mature enough); I'm just registering an opposing view here.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||your summary sounds so much||
your summary sounds so much less boring than what i feel like i slept through...
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I'm not sure if I've ever managed to stay awake through Dogville||
but from what I remember (and what I can extrapolate in light of your comment), I'm not sure it's actually too harsh. The NCAA's treatment of athletes is really fucked up.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||can somebody parse this for me?||
"Teams have the most deviation from their season average in week one (11.9 points) but the low point has a deviation within 1 point (11.0) that occurs during week one."
the low point of what? and i just have no idea what "that occurs during week one" is modifying. it's been a lot of years since waltzing through stat 350.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||You should at least be consistent||
Is your impression from the preponderance of what you've read (which, if it wasn't on the internet, was probably from some collection of sources, at least some of which you could presumably list) or from conversations with friends or coworkers? What's the point of being cagey? I don't get why anyone would claim to have heard something and then pretend to be unable to give an idea of their sources unless they were just looking to be treated as though they were important. Feel free to enlighten me here, though.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||oh, i finally got it||
east and west. only took 4 hours.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||wut||
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Link||
I thought that allegation had no place here, but now that I've read about the DUI and the argument, I think it's relevant information. Here's a link:
|3 weeks 1 day ago||All extremely serious issues you raised have been discussed||
That's true vacuously, you see, because you raised no extremely serious issues. Read a book.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||The academic staff would revolt||
I guarantee you LEO and GEO would strike immediately.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I'm sorry||
I had to downvote this as flamebait because the idea of turning the AD over to fucking Lochdog makes my skin crawl.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||DB being a member of "the worst generation' aside...||
You're both acting like jerks, and eamus could stand to work on his reading comprehension. But (s)he probably wouldn't be in such a lather if Ghost weren't so committed to acting like a snotty, entitled brat every time this topic comes up. Maybe you should think about why so many alums think the criticisms are warranted, Ghost, instead of spending so much time whining about their being unfair.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||what years??||
When I was a beginning grad student, the number of years you'd bought season tickets mattered but your graduate standing absolutely did not help.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Bunt drill!||
I helped coach a high school baseball team last year (because I am a responsible adult who was available; not because I know anything about baseball) and one team was kicking our ass so handily that they started a bunt drill. It took us quite a while to get an out, and it was plenty embarrassing, but I was actually glad they did it. It slowed the bleeding and forced our players to listen to us in order to figure out the adjustments on the fly.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||He wasn't running around||
He wasn't running around naked. The cops made him strip, fearing a bomb strapped to him. He turned out not to be the right guy.
This thread (and its successor) had pretty good info all night:
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Underappreciated?||
By whom? It's gotta be Stu.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||dude||
This delay is clearly him changing his mind. Don't pressure the poor kid.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||just a clock so far||
There was a brunch of some sort with boosters that ended at 1:30, so I assume he's just running a little late from that.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||The injury could have changed||
The injury could have changed the calculus but prior to it he was telling people he's staying through his RS Senior year.
