I'll take Richard Loeb (of Leopold and Loeb fame) for $100, Alex.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Jon Snow to Leave Castle Black?||
So, I have been thinking Jon Snow is slated to lead an army of wildings and other possible loyalists south...perhaps to unite the north in a defense against the white walkers or even to King's Landing (join forces with Dany? Tyrion holds Jon in high regard so he might advise such an alliance).
The oath of the Night's Watch says that "my watch shall not end until my death." He has died so he should be free to lead an army anywhere he sees fit...

He probably owed some mobster from The Wire known only as The Greek some serious drachma.

Dear high school coaches. UM is no longer able to host a satellite camp for your student athletes. If you band with other high school coaches put on a camp in your area and invite me to attend, I will be happy to serve as a volunteer. JMFH.
|15 weeks 15 hours ago||Spike||
I know folks mention it from time to time, but I continue to feel that losing Spike also hurt this season more than it is credited. The impacting of losing Caris is so obvious but the combined harm of losing both has been less so
|17 weeks 3 days ago||True, but...||
All of that may be true. But, he also may want to work a UM to be closer to his son during his remaining time as a UM player. Then, when Henry is done, Biff can go back to Baltimore (if that is what he wants) or move up the ladder, as you say.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Natural Fill||
It is possible to use natural fill rather than the crumb rubber on turf fields. If the studies' suggest any cancer problems, it may be possible to install or maintain existing fields without the crumb rubber tires being used as the fill. Of course, the natural fill is more expensive.

Are you really arguing that he should be forced out?
|29 weeks 4 days ago||What is our best win?||
Our best win is BYU? NW? We beat the teams we were supposed to beat. But none of the three best teams we played.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||Four years||
I also don't have a problem with any school committing to four years with a coach, but I was one of the folks that thought Rich Rod should have been given a fourth year. I certainly have no problem with Purdue giving a fourth year to their current coach over the MAC flavor of the month (when they just attempted that path with Hazell).
|30 weeks 6 days ago||What stunt?||
Anyone know the stunt to which he is referring?
|37 weeks 4 days ago||At the time...||
I would say Drew Henson was over-appreciated when he was splitting games with Brady. Carr invested a lot in keeping him away from baseball only to have him leave to play baseball--at the expense of playing time for a senior Tom Brady.
Henson was good when he played a full season as a starter but, to paraphrase Things to Do in Denver When Your Dead, his reputation far exceeded his skills (mammy-rammer).
|43 weeks 4 days ago||The dumbest thing about this...||
Setting aside the many good reasons we want it played every year, this is a dumb idea for even the most jaded branding/marketing wanker.
One of the main reasons that Ohio State and Michigan stay relevant when their performance is lacking is The Game. Even if Michigan blows, they will still register on the national stage toward the end of the season precisely because The Game is played every single year, without fail. The same will be true when OSU has a down year or period. You start skipping a few years here or there and people will care less (ala UM vs. ND).
Even a branding schmo should be able to see that it would hurt the brand.

Kelvin Benjamin ran a 4.61. Hard to keep pitching Funchess as a Benjamin type WR when he runs a full tenth of a second slower.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||ADA Accommodation||
I think this would stop if he submitted an ADA request for accommodation to his employer asking to be excluded from the media sessions due to a social anxiety disorder.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||I agree||
He said plenty of positive things about UM. Many of you seem like you want to hate him and are just hearing the things that support your point of view.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Agreed!||
I could not remember his name, but this is the guy from the Haloscan days that I was trying to remember. He was a regular and valued poster who suddenly announced his retirement from the site (no anger, no big causal event)...and then actually never came back that I saw. Seemed like a good dude.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||In the context of this||
In the context of this article, it's a fair comment. He moved from USD, to Stanford, to SF, to Umich without staying put too long. I read this less as a comment that JH really wants to be in the NFL and more as a suggestion that JH has been a bit of a nomad as a coach. I hope he stays a long time, but this comment by the Bee was a reasonable one--not another feeding of the NFL centric trolls.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Good natured piece. I||
Good natured piece. I enjoyed that one and expect some of the kookiness that Harbaugh will bring. It's part of the total package.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Vandy||
I am not sure whether things have changed, but in the 1990s Vandy had a reputation for turning away the top recruits it could get due to very high academic standards--including eventual Kentucky star and Nashvillian Ron Mercer. I think they also had no athletic director or had some similar alternative structure that de-emphasized athletics.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Gerg Part Deux||
Given the disaster that was The Gerg (his Super Bowl D Coordinator)was at UM, I think salvaging the career of another member of that staff is a poor idea. Skeletor be gone!

Been a while since I've seen Junior Brown and his guit-steel.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||Chad Gaya||
That's Chad Gaya, silly. The one that goes "then came the dog that bit the cat that ate the kid my father bought for twoooo zuzim". I think kid here means goat, not a song about human trafficking.

In Soviet Russia, you no pay for college...college pay you!
|2 years 11 weeks ago||But is it sourced?||
Sure it's his job. But if the people in question are denying it, it makes you wonder whether he has an actual source or is contorting a safe assumption into an actual decision without getting anything from a legitimate source.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||UVA and UM swap||
It seems to me the committee can give the 1 seed to UM if we win (with UVA as the 2 in the East) and give UVA the 1 seed if we lose (and us the 2 seed in the East), allowing the committee to keep the rest of the bracket the same.

Lunardi's nitty report has us at #3 overall jumping both Nova and Wichita State.

|2 years 15 weeks ago||One of the more interesting things about the finale||
Personally, I thought one of the more itneresting features of the finale was MM's breakdown at the end, when he was discussing his near death experience.
This was a character as steeped in nihilism as I can remember on television. References to death being the end, with no promise of afterlife and a stark opposition to religion and its promises of an afterlife or salvation. Even in the last episode, he refers to people as "sencient meat"--to which WH responds, "What's scented meat?".
Then, during his near-death experience, he feels a connected to his late daughter and father and emerges from that experience with the conclusion that in the battle between light and dark--that light is winning (since there was only dark in the beginning).
Whether one believes in afterlife, etc., does not matter to me. But, I thought that change represented a dramatic shift in the character forged by his experience in the case. Either way, I thought it pretty interesting from a character development standpoint.
