Your username is a reference to Calvin and Hobbes, right? How did you develop an interest in that? What is your connection? Do you often read Calvin and Hobbes and does it create any emotional response?
I guess I would consider growing up watching Michigan football every Saturday, pretending to be Charles Woodson, Tom Brady, David Terrell, etc. in the backyard, talking about the games with my Grandpa on Sundays all a connection.
I'll determine what is and what is not important in MY life, thank you. I follow all sports very closely, not just Michigan Football, and have actually made a lot of money because of this which has paid for my college education. Pretty creepy, right?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||How is||
How is it "strange and creepy" to support a big-time local (for most non-alumni on this blog) team? I grew up wanting to attend Michigan and play football but things did not work out that way. Because I wasn't a good enough student and athlete means that continuing to have an interest in something that i have followed since I was a kid is creepy? My university does not have a football team, am I suppose to just give up following college football entirely to avoid being "strange and creepy"?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||With the recent||
With the recent clarification to the block/charge rule that makes it more difficult to draw offensive fouls it is important to have a tall rim protector. Michigan has relied a lot on undersized Novak/Morgan types to draw charges so I would say that adding a 7ft shotblocker is a pretty big deal with the way college basketball rules are headed.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||I don't get||
i don't get why its called e-sports. Why not just e-games or something. Sport involves physical exertion, not sitting in front of a computer. Not a big deal, just kind of misleading. It is one thing if it refers to a sports game such as Madden or FIFA, but I don't see how alien war strategy games are related to sport in any way.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||That IS how it works already||
If a player is down injured (or faking it) and no foul was called play continues (unless it was a head injury, a recent change). However it is considered good sportsmanship for the team with posession to put the ball out of bounds so the injured player can get treatment, but it is NOT a requirement. Teams almost always kick the ball out unless they have a clear scoring chance.
If the team doctors have to come on to the field to attend to a player, that player will have to leave the field and play will restart with his side a man down until the ref allows him back onto the pitch (which is typically less than 30 seconds).

Donovan has a decent left foot. He is definitely not one-footed.

|15 weeks 6 days ago||Miggy||
Miggy has been great for a decade now, not just the past few years. Albert Pujols had 12 great seasons before coming back down to earth last season, Cabrera has had 10 straight great seasons since his solid rookie year. They are two of the all-time greats and much closer than you think.
162 game season averages over their careers:
Cabrera: .320 BA 35 HR 123 RBI
Pujols: .320 BA 41 HR 124 RBI
|19 weeks 1 day ago||How||
How does the Fister trade look bad right now? Fister is hurt and has not pitched for Washington yet. Lombardozzi didn't work out but the Tigers got an ok lefty reliever in Krol and a solid prospect in Robbie Ray. If Fister comes back and pitches like he used to then you can say it was a bad trade, but he is still out a few more weeks.
Like you said, time will tell on that trade, but the Tigers are "winners" of that deal as of now.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||It is real||
I just came across some "Hot Hand" studies while doing research for a paper. I think any athlete knows that there are definitely times when they are in the zone (or the opposite). Its the nerds that didn't play sports that deny it.

the sixers are pathetic. All 5 players standing in the paint on that play. 23 straight losses now.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||Recruits||
Recruits like cool jerseys (which these hideous concepts by an amateur graphic designer definitely are NOT), and Michigan's uniform is already pretty cool. Nobody is choosing a school over what the uniform looks like anyways.
|34 weeks 2 days ago||Haha||
Those are great!
|34 weeks 2 days ago||Thank You||
Missed the last few minutes when my feed cut out, it will be much easier to watch knowing Michigan won!
|40 weeks 3 days ago||Coaches||
Coaches don't follow rumors started by "reporters" and fans. Hoke is with these players almost every day. If a player isn't happy at Michigan the coaches will know about it, and they will go and find other players who really want to be here.
|46 weeks 1 day ago||Yes, in a way||
I use to get so frustrated when my favorite teams lost as a kid/teen but now I try to keep things in perspective. Life is about so much more than whether MY team won a game. I love my teams, follow every move they make, and get nervous/excited watching them play, but if they lose it is not the end of the world just because I can't be happy about my team but the opposing fans can be. If we win, great! If we lose, it is tough, but there is always another game to look forward to.
|46 weeks 6 days ago||Amazing!||
Basically a mirror image of Thierry Henry's wonder goal.

Wouldn't mind if he missed his first game of the season (against my alma mater).

I made a nerf basketball highlight video back in the day. I didnt have the ginger's hangtime but made up for it with creativity. He may be the greatest dunker of all time but I would have destroyed him one on one with my combination of long range jumpers, dunks, and trick shots.

College Hoops 2k8 has rosters updated every year by guys at operationsports.com. That game can be hard to find though. My local gamestop had a few used games for $3 a couple years ago, but I have seen some being sold online for over a 100 bucks!

McGary later said that he didnt mean that he was for sure coming back next year. He is going to make a decision in the coming weeks. I think after the hype of the tourney wears off there will not be so much buzz about him being a lottery pick. Does he leave early and get picked late first/early second round or stay another year and cement himself as a lottery pick? McGary, GRIII, and Tim should all return (it is understandable if Tim leaves though). Trey needs to go pro.

mlb.com will have a free live look in because it is a chance at history. Link: http://mlb.mlb.com/video/play.jsp?content_id=20614977

Put his number in the rafters. It wont be retired though, remember that the retired football numbers are being put back in circulation with the legend patches. Michigan seems to be moving away from the retired number tradition (which I am ok with).

I believe he is actually playing the air cello. String music.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Question||
Was he wearing an ankle brace? Ankle braces might cause injuries like this. I dont feel like going back to look at it again.
