It's not fun to agree about things reasonably.
|15 hours 21 min ago||If this is an MSU student||
Michigan State has a serious obligation to step up and protect him from ELPD's overreach here.
It's not really funny.
|15 hours 24 min ago||Obviously false statement||
Nobody respond to this on an internet message board.
|2 days 3 hours ago||i've never seen any of these games||
I only saw clips of the Woodson interception in the MSU game a year or so ago. But until 2008, this was the only season I missed in its entirety since I was 4 or so, since my family was in England, where my dad had been temporarily transferred, the whole year.
But even in 2008 and 2009, when I was in Amsterdam, I managed to watch some games online. So I think we know what I need to do next year.
|2 days 3 hours ago||I think this oversimplifies the thought process||
Thinking about how I watch things that I know a lot about, I don't think it can be so straight-forward. Rather, they must be watching for how the things they've got in their toolbox can be used to exploit weakenesses exposed on tape. So it's not going to be like, "they can't stop Michigan's tunnel screen so we should try that," but more like "the field corner consistently makes bad decisions, so we should use our smash concept plays to attack him." (Or whatever. I didn't watch the B1GCG.) Maybe that's what you meant by "that" but I'd think it's all viewed through the lens of what you already do that's going to work based on the tape, and not with an eye towards using previous opponents' successful ideas.
To put it simply, the focus has to be on what made the plays work, rather than on what plays worked.

We should make prop bets on which horse you're going to beat to death first.
TV misleading the fans about Marcus Hall's DNP-Coach's Decision vs. Brian Cook being tired of commenters who aren't you is almost a pick 'em, with the former a slight favorite.
Or: which one of us will get banned first? You'll give me some action there.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Oh, I see||
So the issue is just that you don't know what 'defer' means. Fair enough.
|2 days 19 hours ago||So what's up with the thread title?||
Fix it if you want to pretend you're not just swallowing Meyer's cock and bull story.
|2 days 19 hours ago||McGary's leg got stuck underneath him||
It wasn't his back. I wouldn't have been surprised to see his leg snap the way he landed. It looked painful, and he was testing it out on his way back to the bench. That's what the skipping was about.
|4 days 2 hours ago||My impression is that||
My impression is that lecturers get about 10k per course. (Compare that to community colleges, where instructors are more likely to make 1-2k per course.)
|4 days 2 hours ago||Whereof you cannot speak, thereof you must be silent.||
1. What the AD doesn't spend on itself goes back to the University. The on-paper separation of the funds is totally irrelevant to the question of what happens to money if the AD doesn't waste it.
2. Professor's salaries have virtually nothing to do with tuition increases, especially insofar as instructional positions are increasingly filled, at many universities with ever rising tuition, by non-tenure-track staff, who are paid far less, and graduate students, who are paid further lesserer. Both of the latter groups are paid minimum wage (or worse) at many institutions, and have no benefits besides. (Insofar as Michigan is different with respect to compensating non-TT instructional staff at a quasi-reasonable rate, it is thanks in large part to relatively unique features of the institution.) Non-instructional spending and cuts in state funding are more or less entirely responsible for tuition increases.
Bonus thing: $100,000 is a pretty modest salary for a job that requires 10+ years of training when you are talking about the most decorated employees of a world-class institution. What do lawyers at the 10th best firm in NYC make per year?
|4 days 2 hours ago||Of course||
Section 1 is just bringing up Title IX again for no reason whatsoever, so there's that.
|4 days 8 hours ago||This||
It would really improve my ability to monitor how much of a dick I'm being if I could distinguish easily between levels of -1.
Also, every time Brian announces the ban of some obnoxious longtime member, I'm kind of surprised it isn't me. Then I do a little cheer while feeling slightly chastened.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Wouldn't it just be easier||
Wouldn't it just be easier for Kalis to release? Is it the position of the LB that makes that the wrong move, assuming it is?
|1 week 6 hours ago||I'll take a 10 point loss||
Especially given that 5 points were outright handed to Duke by the refs in the first half. We lost an NBA backcourt, we're young, they're a top 10 team, and our best players clearly needed a kick in the ass.
This is a tourney team that will have a chance to pull an upset to get to the second weekend. The ceiling of our recent past is not bad for a rebuilding year.
|1 week 6 hours ago||So||
What is that reason?
|1 week 6 hours ago||This would be true if we'd||
This would be true if we'd make both free throws.
|1 week 6 hours ago||Levert for President||
1000 burpees for everybody else.
|1 week 6 hours ago||We need good Stauskas, right||
We need good Stauskas, right now. Caris getting us within 6 over and over again only to let them lengthen it back to 10 or more isn't cutting it. Go go gadget 3s.
|1 week 6 hours ago||Levert's the only guy||
Levert's the only guy playing like he wants to win this game.
Morgan looks terrible. Glad Irvin is back in at the 4 now.
|1 week 1 day ago||Relevant sample size?||
I'd be interested in knowing how many of those 75 occasions were anything other than obvious punting or FG situations. The rubber really hits the road for this thing where coaches statistically ought to go for it.
|1 week 2 days ago||link?||
wanna substantiate that?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||You're crazy||
From Wikipedia, here's Michael Jordan on Hakeem the Dream:
If I had to pick a center [for an all-time best team], I would take Olajuwon. That leaves out Shaq, Patrick Ewing. It leaves out Wilt Chamberlain. It leaves out a lot of people. And the reason I would take Olajuwon is very simple: he is so versatile because of what he can give you from that position. It's not just his scoring, not just his rebounding or not just his blocked shots. People don't realize he was in the top seven in steals. He always made great decisions on the court. For all facets of the game, I have to give it to him.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Just to be clear||
Does the character issue to which you refer have to do with fully grown adults at the top of their professions making buckets of money on the backs of hardworking teenagers given drastically below-market compensation and shamelessly coerced into forgoing totally legal streams of income so that a cartel can circumvent labor laws by pretending not to be a business concern?
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||Thanks, mGO||
It's a good thing you made this, so we can consolidate all of our Gibbons appreciation in one place. The board gets out of control without official threads.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||wut||
This is the internet. There is no making up over stupid arguments.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||And somehow we'll still look down on you||
Sorry, little brother. Comes with the 68-33-5 territory. Want respect? Get a lot closer to .500 against us.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||you have to be kidding||
"The refs reviewed it and said he didn't" cannot have been meant seriously.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Psst||
It's not the getting caught part that people object to.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I don't think we were||
I don't think we were actually set on the right side of the line. (Williams, maybe?) Don't you have to be set for a full second?
