|1 week 6 days ago||Actually, it wasn't quite as||
Actually, it wasn't quite as simple as some would have you believe. The infractions, in the end, weren't extraordinary. But Michigan did cop to them, and the NCAA did find reason to penalize Michigan. Some folks here would have you believe that the whole Freep thing was a 100 percent fiction. Michigan did commit some violations. Not huge ones, but violations nonetheless. And the ol' "everyone else was doing them" argument shouldn't fly.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Michigan would never elevate||
Michigan would never elevate the AD, out of a legitimate concern that sports run the university. Never.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||For the most part, the||
For the most part, the greatest and truest rivalries have are regional. You can't just start a fierce rivalry with Texas or LSU. You need some kind of turf war.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I love their runners. I just||
I love their runners. I just wish one of them would deliver on the hype in football. It's been kind of absurd so far.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Still preferable to at ND,||
Still preferable to at ND, OSU and (pretty much) Alabama.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed. It's funny how many||
Agreed. It's funny how many people here are married to the idea that today's uniforms are completely traditional. The team phased out "maize" years ago.

Shades of Boubacar Cissoko.
|6 weeks 14 hours ago||Do you understand that every||
Do you understand that every team in the league wanted Darko? It wasn't a stupid pick. Sometimes it just doesn't work out.
|7 weeks 15 hours ago||Yup. Christians and Americans||
Yup. Christians and Americans are under seige. Give me a break. Stop embarrassing yourself.

This is a Michigan sports blog. Create threads like this on tv blogs.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Now that they weasel we out||
Now that they weasel we out of the series, ND news is meaningless. They're dead to the world.

Lions are hosed. Trade down.
|8 weeks 7 hours ago||It's sad how many students||
It's sad how many students feel that Saturday is really more about drinking than football. Borderline pathetic.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Sure thing, goober. You do||
Sure thing, goober. You do realize this is a nation of immigrants?
|8 weeks 4 days ago||It's only unsafe when people||
It's only unsafe when people ask questions like this.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah. They're gonna hire a||
Yeah. They're gonna hire a head coach from the wnba.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||The scholly replaces||
The scholly replaces Hardaway. A twin press conference is good news for Michigan. Nobody announces he's leaving with someone else.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||If they're announcing||
If they're announcing together, they're staying.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Fielder displayed the worst||
Fielder displayed the worst two-day display of batting ever. Literally, I believe.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Actually, it's pretty fair.||
Actually, it's pretty fair. All of these teams, including Michigan, tend to benefit from pre-season hype. It's institutional. My only issue is absence of ND.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Guy's not leaving to be a||
Guy's not leaving to be a surefire backup.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||A couple days ago, JB said he||
A couple days ago, JB said he doesn't expert any transfers. So I think the point is moot.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||People love to use terms like||
People love to use terms like "regression to the mean" because they think it sounds important and scientific. Also "data points."
|9 weeks 2 days ago||First rule of spring game:||
First rule of spring game: draw no conclusions based on what you see in the spring game.

Not to be downer, but why the hell are you so eager to to see a player who helped bring corruption and shame to the university in a major and lasting way? A great player, sure. And everyone deserves a shot at redemption. But he's still playing the petulant victim. I don't think the university needs a reminder of that tomorrow night.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Makes no sense at all. Those||
Makes no sense at all. Those are the three best teams we play.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||You're kidding, right? The||
You're kidding, right? The guy fired the coach only after OTL aired the footage. The timing tells you everything. A coach who abused kids, verbally and physically, doesn't deserve counseling. He deserves to be fired. Some things are just over the line. And, according to all indications, the guy was doing it for years. The AD should be fired, too. His crocodile tears are bullshit.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I love the posters who just||
I love the posters who just flatly say "of course it's rigged." As if they've seen enough evidence to conclude that there is a widespread conspiracy involving multiple refs.
The reddit video is a statistically meaningless sampling. You'd need to study games across the board. And of course the video doesn't take into consideration bad calls that may have gone against the Lakers.
If you're gonna be a conspiracy theorist, at least bring persuasive evidence.
The reason there aren't more mass conspiracies is simple: it takes a lot of people to a) pull them off and b) keep their mouths shut. People, in the end, rarely stay quiet.

There's no way McGary goes. You can tell by everything he says that even he thinks he's in no wat ready for the nba lifestyle or game.

Perhaps you shouldn't tar the field of journalism based on something called "Common Man and Torg."
