I have no first or even second hand knowledge of either the victim or LTT. I have read nothing on the case itself nor have I even bothered to listen or learn anything remotely connected to this situation, the principles, the police investigation or the law being violated. In short I could not possibly be less qualified to offer anything resembling an informed opinion on this matter.
Based on that it's beyond clear to me that he/she is innocent/guilty and the victim/LTT are clearly lying/telling the truth.

FWIW I was in the "Orr must go" camp in 1981. Frieder did 99% o fthe coaching AND recruiting by that time it was pretty damn clear he'd lost his fastball so to speak. Frieder went on to have some great teams (albiet not that hot in the NCAA's) so just cause it's a tradition doesnt make it wrong.

I will admidt it. I was (and maybe still am a little bit) a HUGE Johnny Football fan. I was beyond excited when the Browns drafted him and I was there last October when he got his first start against the Bengals. I can tell you walking into the stadium that day there was an energy and excitement that we Browns fans seldom (if ever) get to feel. And then he laid a giant turd and that basically ended that last year.
This year seemed different though - at least at the start. He came in for a concussed McCown in game one and on the second series unleashed a beutiful 60 yard bomb for a TD. We lost the game but damn he was fun to watch. Then game two against Tennessee he led us to victory with again, two long bombs, the last one being totally JF with him running around and throwing the ball sidearmed against his body for an imossible TD. For a day at least it was fun to be a Browns fan.
Everyone knows how this has ended. And I'm sad for Johnny but I'm also sad for me and all the other Browns fans who hoped beyond hope we had finally found our QB. Now it's ending beyond badly, we've got a new coach (again) and we're going to have to find a new QB (again).
And I will miss watching him play. He made a shitty team interesting to watch at least.

Only by creating my own thread can I be asured that everyone will see and hear my VERY IMPORTANT THOUGHTS ON THINGS and give it the attention it deserves.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Great questions||
That's exactly what we were - "Sub-scouts" . My sister's next door neighboor in AA was Bob Chemiel who was the recruiting coordinator under Mo. And a very good friend of mine here in Cleveland was George Lilja who was an All American center when I was in school and retired from the NFL as a Brown. Couple those two and I got brought into the mix.
No, we could not talk to coaches or players (directly) without violating NCAA rules. But trust me, as soon as word spread there was a scout for Michigan at the game we had no problem at all meeting the frends and family of the player. And we would ask questions and they would ask me questions and so we'd communicate with the player through that Chinese veil of the third party. And yes, we worked the nearby area so for me it ran from Canton to the south to Solon to the north (I didnt recruit Cleveland but did have the Massilon/Barberton, Canton McKinley area).
Yes, winning was ASSUMED in the early 90's. That never even came up as a question.
And someday I'll write a diary about the time Marty Bodnar and me almost got us in trouble with the NCAA by offering to give Scott Loeffler a ride to a game. That was pretty funny but definitely a TL/DR for most.
|1 week 5 hours ago||What mattered from 1992-1994||
What mattered from 1992-1994 was the following:
1. How soon will I play?
2. How many players at my position have you put into the NFL recently?
3. What's my position coach REALLY like?
4. Are the girls in AA as bad as everybody says? (don't shoot the messenger here guys - unfortunately we DO have a reputation and negative recruiting exists)
5. Academics in general in my major. What's that like?
We got a spreadsheet and were asked to attend certain games and report in weekly on what we saw, who we spoke to and what their friends and family were like (this was VERY important to Michigan FWIW). Most of what we did was through their family and friends as actual contact was limited by the NCAA but those were the questions relayed the most often to us that we'd try and get answers to them.
|1 week 7 hours ago||You kids having fun yet?||
Recruiting is insane and I know first hand - I actually did it for three years for Michigan. Trying to predict the thinking/decisions of a 17 year old is more insane. Getting emotionally invested in said decisions of said 17 year old's is the height of insanity IMO unless you're a coach or the kid's parent.
This is the one time a year I just sit quietly on the sidelines and watch without much (if any) comment.

|2 weeks 4 hours ago||Agree on all counts||
One question though - are there more coming or was Weaver the last one? Cause if there are more on the way it would be good for Michigan to get in front of this as fast as they can and not (as the great Don Canham used to say) turn a one day story into a two day (or even longer) story.
I dont think it serves anyone's purpose associated with Michigan to have these keep coming out individually.

|2 weeks 1 day ago||Personally I love old Vegas||
Have stayed in a lot of places but prefer Fremont St to the stip all day long. WAY cheaper and if you're into gambling & drinking you'll pay about half what you'll pay on the strip.
True story - one time I stayed at the Bellagio and got a Bloody Mary for me and wife. Lots of pretty vegtables in it and the price was $18 fucking dollars. I can could barely taste the vodka.
Next day we're walking in the mall in old Vegas and there's a bar set up outside the Golden Nugget. I ask for a bloody mary and the bartender pulls out a cup for an extra large beer and starts pouring vodka while he's talking to me. When the vodka reached about the brim he put in no more than a half a cup of tomato juice, a couple of shots of tabasco and an olive or two and handed me this mostly clear glass of vodka. I asked him how much for THAT?
$2.00 he said. It was happy hour.
I love old vegas.

And my record on parlays this year would certainly affirm this to be true. But I bet for fun and entertainment, not to change my standard of living, so a parlay with a nice payout is more "fun" even though the odds are stacked against me. So I put down $100 on a Pats/Panthers parlay.
Hopefully my bet is still alive for game 2

I followed this story from when it broke through the night and basically the discussion can be broken into two camps. The national media and other coaches, who basically look at the record and say this MUST be Lebron's doing because how could you fire a coach with a record that good? And the local media who are much closer to the team who say this was a LONG time coming and candidly overdue.
Inside the organization Blatt had one friend (and it was a good one) in Dan Gilbert. NOBODY else liked or respected the guy one bit. Story after story are coming out now about him freezing up when trying to draw an end-game play, designing plays for players not even in the game and conducting ridiculous film sessions in which he was terrified to confront any of the big three. In short the man was WAY WAY over his head and it showed.
I was at the Golden State game this past Monday. Some have speculated that the team might've tanked the game to get him fired but I just read something interesting that proboably explains what happened better. The team on Monday decided to do exactly what Blatt instructed to the letter. Exactly to the letter. And without the benefit of players like Lebron who know what to do and would overrule his incompentency, on that night they didnt. And when they did he was brutally and totally exposed.

Excellent, excellent article - thanks for Rivals for dropping the paywall and thanks to the OP for posting it.

This is appalling. To reward the man who wouldn't lift a finger to help Rich and assist in his already difficult transition to Michigan is now being rewarded for his mutinous behavior in Ann Arbor. Every time I think about Carr putting his ego ahead of the program itself and almost single-handilly plunging Michigan into the football abyss with his callous disregard for Rich and the team itself it makes me physically ill. I have little to no doubt that Carr will richly reward his cronies with undeserved invitations to the final four just as he willfully submarined any chance Rich had to succeed in Ann Arbor.

There is nothing more capricious than the mind of a teenage boy and the fact that people let their moods rise and fall with their seemingly daily changes in favorites makes me laugh.

You might as well have a post on wind direction. 'THE WIND IS COMING FROM THE WEST - OH GOD NO" followed up with "WIND HAS SHIFTED TO THE SOUTH - THIS IS A VERY GOOD, GOOD SIGN" and so on.

I'll be at the Q tomorrow night for the Cavs-Warriors game. Should be quite the electric atmosphere there as well (finals preview anyone?).
I've saying all year that the key to beating the Warriors is to play them very physically (you know - old school Pistons style) and dont give them any uncontested shots. People forget that last year we were up 2-1 (should've been 3-0) before we completely ran out of gas and could no longer chase them around the floor. This year the Cavs have much more depth (God willing) so I'm very much looking forward to the rematch.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Dirty little secret||
Iowa is my favorite non-Michigan basketball team. I love the way they play, I find their head coach incredibly entertaining and I think the most scandalous thing I've ever heard about Hawkeye basketball was that one time a player got an undeserved free french fry reload at Applebees.
Not saying I hope they win but I dont mind when they beat everybody else.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||That's not why he's saying it||
Even though I bet KC I totally understand Jdon's point. Whenever all the money lands on one side of the line, bet the other. Last week of the regular season, for example, the Giants were laying 3 points to the Eagles playing at home. The Eagles had just fired Kelly, had just been eliminated from the playoffs and EVERYONE was saying take the Giants, lay the 3 and collect your money. I believe the betting percentages in Vegas were over 90% NY money.
Eagles won the game outright.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Rodman||
In his prime he was an absolute shut-down defender and it seemed like he was on a pogo stick when going for loose balls. That dude could jump three, four, five times in a row without seeming to lose one inch of lift - he was amazing. Not taking anything away from Wallace but Rodman was 6'8", skinny as a pool stick and could still outrebound the league.
That being said however I do have a proposal for settling this should their be a tie. We will put both of them at the free throw line and have a free throw shooting contest.
First player to one wins.

I worked as a bouncer at the Village Bell (another long gone AA institution) but used to LOVE th P-Bell as well. They used to run "all you can eat crab legs" on Sunday night and my fraternity buddies and I used to smoke a ton of weed and then wait for the munchies to kick in and then head over. I can remember (sort of) the service slowing down with each platter of crab legs we consumed. By the end we were waiting a LONG time for a reload but we were high, had beer (nobody gave a shit back then about the drinking age) and were having fun.
Our personal record was 16 plates of crab legs. The owner came out, shook all of our hands, congradulated us on our eating performance and told us we were not welcomed back on Sunday nights!

My wife and I bought a couple of tickets and no, we were NOT one of the mGoWinners last night. But as we were talking about what we'd do with the money if we did win it struck me that I really didnt want to win. Winning that much money would change literally EVERYTHING in my life and I honestly cant see how it would be better. Clearly I'd never want for money again in my life but what about everything else? Your relationship with your wife would change, your kids would change, your friends, your job - everything would change. And from everything I've read the people that win these mega-jackpots dont seem real happy a couple of years later.
I actually count it as a blessing to not be a winner. Maybe that makes me wierd but that's honestly how I see it. Anybody else feel that way?

I think we should seriously consider going "all-posbang" and have the mods delete any thread that doesnt have posbang in the title.

Chip the coach did not "fail badly". He took a shitty Eagles team to consecutive 10 win seasons before hitting a bump this year. I would argue as a coach he did very well and speaking as a Browns fan I would absolutely KILL for a coach to fail here as badly as Chip failed in Philly over the past three years..
What brought Kelly down was his General Manager was WAY over his head and was a poor evaluator of talent. Kelly the GM was the problem- not Kelly the coach.
Our friend at XXXXSports notwithstanding I wouldnt be a bit surprised to see Haslam make a big offer to try and get Meyer for the Browns. Coupled with a good General Manager (yes I know - a near impossible task here in Cleveland) I think he might do ok.

Did they at least have the common decency to bring couches and lighter fluid? I mean I doubt the MSU fans there would notice (or even care) is that other crap like beer, food, soda was missing if they were considerate enough to bring the "party essentials" for a top-shelf MSU tailgate blast.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Without question it is||
They had a radio poll on down here last week asking which season was a bigger disapointment - the Browns at 3-12 or the Buckeyes at 11-1 because they werent playing for the NC. And the Buckeyes "won" in a landslide - people actually viewed an 11-1 season for Ohio State as being a dissapointment greater than the absolulte mess of a pro team we have.
I'm not sure I'd take any great comfort in Meyer's post-game attitude though. The dude is a cold-blooded killer when it comes to wanting to win (his seniors just tied the record set by Boise State for most wins over a four year period) and if anything this "disappointing" season will be fuel for him next year.

My questiion is why in the hell are these games being played on New Year's eve for god's sake. Playing them Saturday sets up perfectly with the New Year's day games being the prelude and the championship games the following day being the main course.
But now they've got it exactly backwards AND they're showing the games on a day where I'll bet they're going to see a dramatic reduction in viewers as people have other things to do outside of football.

Things we probably differ on talking about:

3. I would never tell a 6 year old thier drawings looked like shit and were completely out of proportion to reality.
4. I would never ask somebody in hospice care how long before they thought they would die.
To each their own I guess.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Out of respect mostly||
You are 100% correct that it's pretty easy to figure out who is likely to go but remember - ALL of the players likely to go at one time held dreams of Michigan greatness that are going to go unrealized. And whether it's due to talent, injuries, self-inflicted wounds, coaching change or anything else for that matter it is a sad thing for them. And each of these guys at one time was featured on the front page of this blog with a large "HELLO" post welcoming them to Michigan which projected the positive impact they would have on the team in years to come.
I would guess all 11 read this blog or are at least very aware of it. So we wait to "name names" for a little while.

|8 weeks 5 days ago||Muchos gracias||
Seriously though - go back and look at the first three games of the series. We lost game one in OT where we had a shot to win in regulation and then lost. That's the game we lost Kyrie who's still out. Then we win games two & three playing the physical basketball the Warriors did not like and were not used to. Then they flipped to small ball and we ran out of gas with no K-Love, no Kyrie and Delly having to play 40 minutes a game. Hell, he got freaking hospitalized after game three with exhaustion and cramps so he was functionally worthless for the balance of the sereies leaving us with no PG at all.
This year we have depth or at least we will once we start getting healthy again in the next 7-10 days. And at some point the Warriors will actually have someone get injured. You cant flip a coin and have it come heads forever.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||I saw their last loss||
Game #3 of last year's finals.
And on Christmas day they wil DEFINITELY get loss #1 if they havent already as Kyrie & Shump will be back (allegedly) which will give my Cavs our full starting five for the first time all year. Right now we start our 3rd string PG, our back-up small forward and our starting center is still recovering from off-season surgery and is playing like shit. And to date the Warriors have lost NO players to injuries.
Come playoffs it's a completely different animal (which is why the Cavs won two games), should've won three (the opener) and kicked the Warriors ASS last March.
I'll still take the Cavs over the Warriors when we get the players back.
