Harvard Crimson, Chicago Maroon.

I wonder if the New York Islanders considered a name change at all.
Two obvious and probably more glaring examples of names not making sense has stuck in the NBA for a long time (Lakers and Jazz) and the Islanders do have some great history, but Brooklyn isn't Long Island in any real sense.

I'm not a gamer* but thinking there's any meaningful distinction between consuming an hour of NFL draft content or an hour of celebrity gossip or watching an hours worth of video game strategy is ridiculous. At their most basic, they're meaningless forms of entertainment and nothing more.
*I played N64 growing up and have a PS3 for occasionally playing one of my three games, NCAA 14, Little Big Planet 2 and the GTA4 with all three versions.

Counting followers is backwards, IMO, but the press coverage and spotlight Harbaugh has gotten is a big positive.
Even if it's irrelevant by August, Harbaugh being treated like a rock star these past five months has flipped the media narrative on Michigan football and bought some time for him to get to work turning things around.
|1 day 9 hours ago||It's not going to be that simple.||
They just spent, what, ten or twelve million dollars to fire Hoke/Brandon and get Harbaugh? At the same time student ticket prices were cut and there are whispers about Schlissel wanting to get rid of $4 water, plus the bills on debt service hit $15mm last year (at the tail end of a $750mm spending campaign).
I'm not saying Adidas is here to stay or that there are no good arguments for a Nike deal, but the athletes aren't going to be the sole deciding factor; nothing exists in a vacuum.

Without getting into the ridicule attempts above, the split M on the arm is a giveaway that it's an older product. Searching for the image on Google gave me two results, both $50.

Changed to the Legends Football League, because their uniforms "totally aren't lingerie" any more. A girl I knew in high school plays for Chicago and is always posting/tweeting something about it.

Ten posts in and no beach volleyball answers? Interesting.

I've got some wrenches for any of the dodgeball advocates. I'll gladly volunteer to help with training.

For anyone needing help with posting videos or blockquoting or any kind of formatting, I wrote this a while back.

Definitely not claiming funniest, but I can't ever look away from this.

Click the "recent" tab under the MGoBoard header or go to mgoblog.com/tracker (that shows the front page and diaries as well).

I think it'd be more accurate to say that the board is a different audience than the front page. That's my reasoning re: the OP.

It's not that law school sweatshirt, but they sell a University of American Samoa shirt in the show's official store.
Edit: Looks like this is the actual sweatshirt.

Who wouldn't love catching a game in a massage chair while enjoying a vodka + cucumber water cocktail? Don't forget the footbath.

Just to be clear, that's basically a piece of trivia. Obama is always called 44, and the two Bush presidents are often referred to as "Bush 43" and "Bush 41" when someone needs to make a distinction.
Here's the Red Wings visit in 2008, with Lidstrom playing the part of George HW Bush(?...?!):

44th presidency, he's actually the 43rd president. Grover Cleveland (the only one to serve non-consecutive terms) is counted as 22 and 24.
|5 days 5 hours ago||For best...||
I see Texas and USC as fairly equal depending on the coach. Carrol was perfect for USC, Brown was perfect for Texas once upon a time. There's a big drop to the rest of the flagships in talent rich states, then the Oklahoma, Michigan, ND ties that have everything except a backyard they can base a program on. After that everything seems more fluid because coaches will leave for better jobs.
For prestige I just don't think Alabama has the glamour factor. FWIW I don't think Michigan does either, and that's a good thing in my opinion.
|5 days 23 hours ago||Leaving the whole||
Leaving the whole Harbaugh/NFL thing out of this reply, do you think Alabama is the most prestigious job in college? I might be biased or in the minority, but I think I'd give that to USC without much competition, probably followed by ND.
I don't think "best" and "prestigious" are the same, although Southern Cal has a claim on best as well. I don't think ND is close to the top of "best jobs" in 2015.
|6 days 2 min ago||His job pays him to eat,||
His job pays him to eat, sleep, breathe and talk about football. I have zero doubt Harbaugh respects the "manliness" surrounding hockey or surgery or the USMC or firefighters or anything else, but his business is football and he's going to concentrate on and promote it.
If he was Red's replacement or President Schlissel or Gen. Mattis or did FDNY recruiting he'd say the same thing about any of those respective jobs, and there's not anything wrong with that.
|6 days 6 hours ago||I really can't say.||
I really can't say. Subjectively I don't know because I'm not paying attention once they're caved (and it does seem like the vast majority of posters either can't see or know that caved posters can still post to the app) and I don't have any kind of objective information or data from the site either.
|6 days 7 hours ago||There's some truth to all these comments.||
I do think there are a few new, loud voices that are bringing down the level of discourse compared to where it used to be (I don't usually say something like that, I think people tend to overrate the past).
The whack-a-mole is a lot less frustrating, it takes all of three or four seconds to nuke an account.
Everything in your post is already in effect, but a glitch on the app still shows the comments a caved account posts. I realize I'm way over the "do as I say, not as I do" line with the last sentence, but every time someone comments, "oh I can only see your posts on the app" it means a troll is making a new account because they're tipped off.
I think changing a few things about registering new accounts could help a lot, but the community itself not tolerating people just here to shit on everything is the all around best defense.

Am I the only one that thinks "defending national champs" is annoying/grating? It's not boxing, FSU wasn't defending anything.
