for good measure. Make sure you get what's coming to you.
|6 hours 10 min ago||I'm pretty sure he made his fair share of donations||
He made plenty of contributions off the playing field. If he wants to will his guys a free dinner or nice suit, it was his money and free will.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Thought this was hoops related||
Either that or some Euro hockey player.
|1 day 1 hour ago||What happened to LordGrantham?||
I know they killed his dog on the show. Did he lose it and go off the deep end?
|1 day 8 hours ago||Incessant parade of senior Cs||
Sounds great to me. Just like you can't teach speed, you can't teach size. I know Coach B is great finding steals out there, but they don't always pan out. Think how different things would've been if we didn't sign Trey and only had Carlton Brundidge, who had been committed to us for a much longer period? I like insurance plans for the one and done guys and the under the radar finds.
|2 days 1 hour ago||He was overhyped||
That's not his fault. The coaching staff failed him. I doubt he was ever coached up to a level where he could match the hype. It's unfortunate, but he has an opportunity at the next level so good luck to him.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Piping vs. the alternate uni's||
OSU may not have piping on their uni's, but they more than make up for it with their terrible alternate uniforms. Same goes for Oregon. I think Bama has done the best job keeping their uniforms intact of the schools you mentioned.
|2 days 11 hours ago||The one in the pic of Desmond was my favorite||
I didn't like the change in 1997 but I stuck with it because of national title and all. I hope the practice jersey is barebones just because it's a practice jersey.
|3 days 1 hour ago||If guys wanted their jersey retired||
They had to graduate. That's been the unwritten rule. If Desmond or Charles finished up and got their degree then they would likely get their jersey retired. If Michigan wants to change the rule for those who don't graduate, that's fine. I just don't know if schools with our academic standards have done that. UNC basketball doesn't count for obvious reasons now.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Most news is just clickbait||
The days of classic independent journalism is gone now that corporations own these stations. There's a reason why mention of Fox, MSNBC, Huffington Post either gets upvoted or downvoted without much care about the content of the post. They have their agendas.
In the Detroit market, violence and any negative story about a Detroit politician gets the airplay. Until positive news starts selling, it will be more of the same.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Our offense was good in 2011 and 2013||
And we still gave up 30 and 31 points those years. And our offense put up enough points to beat OSU every year we played them and we still lost every year except one (and we probably lose that game if OSU completes the bomb near the end of that game).
Our issues on defense were covered up by a conference with poor QB play. Actually poor offensive play overall.
|6 days 2 hours ago||JLA was fine for the CCHA semis/finals||
The setup tonight and tomorrow night is the same as the CCHA tournament and there wasn't an issue. I would recommend either:
1. Neutral site location in an arena with max capacity of 10K to avoid embarrasing pics like the OP.
2. Rotate the semis/finals and divide the tickets among the final four teams. Just go back to determining the final four teams a week earlier as opposed to whatever that was they had last night. If the schools can't sell their portion by Wednesday 1PM, open it up to general public.
|6 days 10 hours ago||Why are we tap dancing||
on the still warm and smoldering grave of the 49ers 2015 season? I'm somewhat interested in what's happening out there because they are on the Lions schedule next year.
I'm thankful that the ghost of William Clay Ford and Matt Millen took over the bodies of York and Baalke last season. But like a one-night stand, I've gotten what I needed from them and we are parting ways.
|6 days 12 hours ago||I learned that watching Kevin Hart on SNL||
I feel so old now.
|1 week 1 day ago||Football is staying put||
Even if the NFL has to supply twenty pound helmets to prevent concussions and grow five foot high fieldturf, they are not giving up that money. Unless a lawsuit bankrupts the NFL, the shield will always be here.
|1 week 1 day ago||Kinda doubt that would be the majority opinion||
They were playing essentially a road game and you go for the win on the road. Plus we were still an undersized team compared to Duke. I would've preferred the kickout for the three. I thought that was what he was going to do. Either way, it was a great game and I enjoyed watching Duke get blasted by Arizona the next weekend.
|1 week 2 days ago||Pretty sure it's only 4 Rose Bowls||
5 if Grbac redshirted the year we beat USC in the Rose Bowl. I'm not sure about the Harbaugh teams but I think he only won the 1986 title. Grbac went 4 for 4 in Big Ten titles, of course unless he was a redshirt on the 1988 team.
|1 week 2 days ago||I already have my list ready||
1. First 10% goes to my church, then:
2. Buy a winter home in the Keys.
2. Buy a summer home in the North Carolina mountains.
3, Buy a condo in Ann Arbor for football and basketball games.
4. Put a Michigan-themed man cave in each place.
|1 week 2 days ago||Their money definitely doesn't have longevity||
Plus there's too much scrutiny. I remember when a middle aged guy in WV won the lottery and a year or two later he had tens of thousands of dollars stolen from his vehicle outside a strip club. He was the victim, but everyone had an opinion about how he should've spent his money.
|1 week 2 days ago||Probably his successor||
Todd Collins was the king of burning timeouts, but he was pretty good and accurate with the deep ball. Once Moeller left, those bombs were not used as much. Those Grbac/Collins teams had the O-line to protect the line long enough for those plays to develop, stud receivers with good speed, and a running game that made defenses play honest. That was a perfect combination. Big reason why we won five straight conference titles.
Side note: We were one blown PI call away from going to five straight Rose Bowls. Damn you Eddie Brown and the Big Ten refs.
|1 week 2 days ago||Agreed||
They have a basketball team also, so you can't use the "same school system" argument. If that's the case, UCLA could be loaded with Berkley grads.
|1 week 2 days ago||Didn't know Steve Bartman went to ND||
It figures. If you're a UM and Cubs fan, there's another log to toss on the ol' hate fire.
|1 week 2 days ago||Look at our 'M' logo at the 3:22 mark||
Gator Bowl folks should've been ashamed. Maybe this was what Brandon was trying to avoid.
|1 week 2 days ago||Threw the WR fade beautifully||
If felt like they were automatic throwing that pass in the red zone.
|1 week 2 days ago||I like Kovacs||
But I think I'd like my 5-star guys to have their ceiling be 1st day NFL draft picks. I'm fine with my walk-ons turning into NFL free agent signings.
|1 week 2 days ago||HBO Now is also available for Cablevision (NYC area) users||
That's the only provider for their new service that's available for Internet-only users regardless of platform.
|1 week 3 days ago||I can't figure out why people think Les would've happened||
Dude napalmed his chances back in the 90s. Plus he's 61, probably has a massive buyout from LSU and has routinely coached teams with piss poor QB play. I don't know where Les would've been without John Chavis and the defenses he coached. I guess we'll start to find out now.
|1 week 4 days ago||Timing screwed everyone||
To take a job on the eve of the NCAA tournament is a dick move. Not just to the school, but to the players and incoming recruits.
|1 week 4 days ago||Bowl streak is about all we'd have||
They've been in one SEC title game since Carr left. That's one more than us. And we'd be complaining just like LSU folks have been about his non-existent offense and poor QB play.
|1 week 4 days ago||I know some atheists||
who don't celebrate Christmas because of the ties to Jesus.
On the flipside, I know plenty of Christians who don't celebrate Christmas because it's not actually the day of this birth and it's origins aren't exactly Bible-based. On another flipside, if possible, I know atheists and agnostics who celebrate Christmas because they look at it as just a gift giving holiday and agree with those who say Christmas' origins are not Bible-based.
