Yeah, I love all the scotch I can afford. Just can't afford much at the moment.

Rolling with a Speyburn 10 year single malt. I'm poor and new to whisky, so this is all I have.

Get him a Michigan themed basketball. It will keep him from staying inside and playing video games all the time like I did at that age.

Eugh, sometimes I feel like we're little brother...

|6 weeks 3 hours ago||Mass Effect 3 Ending||
Can someone explain why you all hate the Mass Effect 3 ending? Is it because you have to play online to get the best one, or is it because of what happens at the literal end? I thought it was okay.

Unfortunate, but expected. Hopefully Trouba decides to... wait a sec...
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Really?||
Come on, man. No one cares about Sparty.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Wow||
Saban is going to smear Bielema's ass all over the turf. What a dumb comment.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||UTL more exciting||
I thought UTL was more exciting, but a Sweet 16 tournament win with the season on the line seems more important.
|8 weeks 2 hours ago||This is lacking in||
This is lacking in statistical optimality, but seems consistent with common assumptions on the underlying models. Projection of Michigan hockey success parameters into 2013-2014 would likely improve if Trouba continues pursuing a college education.

It's a shame that out of all the great beers from Bell's that Oberon is the most famous.

Something like this comes to mind:
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Mostly freshmen||
I'd say the only key senior is DJ Byrd, and to be honest I think Purdue might get more production out of a different starter at that spot (such as Donnie Hale, or either of incoming freshmen Bryson Scott or Kendall Stephens) next year than they're getting out of Byrd this year. The best player on the team is Terone Johnson (a junior), but the next four after him are probably Ronnie Johnson (freshman), AJ Hammons (freshman), Sandi Marcius (junior), and Rapheal Davis (freshman).
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Trey Burke||
You mean Trey Burke's close road win? :)
Yeah I dunno about Michigan in the tournament. That defense means anyone can beat them, but Trey Burke means they can beat anyone else.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Purdue||
So far they're up a decent amount on Minnesota. With the road win over Wisconsin and staying competitive against Michigan, I think they're a different team now. Watching Ronnie Johnson today vs. against Eastern Michigan is night and day. Rapheal Davis has really come along as well. Hammons may have snapped out of his slump.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Ouch||
Football coaches talking like football coaches? Whodathunkit?
|10 weeks 5 days ago||EA statement||
They're saying only legitimate votes will be counted. Perhaps they have a way to throw out all the fan page votes.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Meijer||
Did anyone else start following the Meijer Twitter handle after this?
|10 weeks 5 days ago||The Bigs||
The disappointment in the big guys is out of context, in a way. They played bad over the course of the night because Sandi Marcius owned whoever was on him for the first half and early second half. After Marcius went out, the pendulum swung in Michigan's favor and McGary was able to handle Hammons and Carroll for the most part. Marcius's injury was critical for Michigan to defend Purdue; without that Purdue could have very well scored enough to keep the game out of reach, given how well he was playing against Michigan's interior earlier.

Among academic circles research on concussions in football players isn't treated with the same respect as other endeavors. I think these groups get a lot more attention from the main stream media than academics.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||It's real||
Purdue researchers published a similar study in high schoolers prior to this one. Most of the brain damage could actually be caused by accumulation of sub concussive blows rather than concussions.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Er, what?||
I'm in grad school here and have several friends from MIT, Stanford, Cornell, Columbia, etc. in the grad program and we're all on the same level (I went to a Big Ten school for undergrad). I don't know what the hell you're talking about. People take mostly the same courses at all schools. There are slight differences, but the number one factor in what you know at time of graduation is what you put into it.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Depends on the school||
Michigan is a research university, so how well they educate undergraduates is definitely not he top priority despite their status as a public school. Although the classroom experience probably suffers as a result, as a student at a research university you have the opportunity to participate in projects that students at other universities don't have access to, and these can be very valuable experiences.
Also I think the big lecture hall thing declines in usage as you get to the later years. There's also significant effort at the moment to get away from such teaching formats, but it's difficult when you have so few faculty and so many students to educate.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Engineering||
Illinois's engineering is badass. They're also really good in the sciences (physics and chemistry). It's not all about law and medicine.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah||
I went to Purdue and Purdue is the little brother of IU in basketball and a bit of a little brother to Notre Dame in football. But even still, Purdue isn't even close to as bad as Sparty. MSU sets the standard.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Little brother||
Biggest reason Sparty keeps the characterization "little brother" is because they work so hard to earn it.

|15 weeks 3 days ago||Ooooooohhhhh||
Sometimes I get a feeling.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Eh||
They'll let NW go on a run, now.
