This could work to our advantage. Having East Lansing as a point of reference will only make Ann Arbor more appealing.

I don't think anyone argues that youth doesn't matter. R-squared is gonna tell you how much of the overall variance in performance is explained by youth. But shit man, if you regressed performance onto youth, our offensive line's actual performance last year would be well, well below its predicted performance given its experience. Talking standardized residual of -3 or -4 bad.

Devin has proven that he can be absolutely senstional under the right circumstances. Let's hope Nussmeier puts him in lots of those circumstances this season.

Everyone seems to forget that our starting OL coming out of camp last summer, except for Kalis, all lived together, were best buds, and went in on a pet pig.

But Jack Miller was raring to go last summer! Waited two years on the bench for his chance to lead, learning from Molk, Omameh, Lewan. Gained 10 pounds of muscle and was in the best shape of his life. Lived with all the other starting offensive lineman in a show of unprecedented unity and chemistry. They even bought a pet pig for their house.

I'm just sick of it requiring a "surprise" to be in the running for a Big Ten championship.

No, it was darkest in 2008. Since then it's just been really overcast with that drizzly rain shit that cakes your glasses.

Despite his interceptions, Countess was thoroughly mediocre last year in coverage. I think Baumgardner's analysis is pretty good. All the insidery message board chatter has Lewis and Taylor as the CB favorites. I wouldn't mind seeing Peppers pass up Taylor, who I thought was thoroughly mediocre, as well. If everyone played to the realistic best-case scenario of their ability range, I think the starters would be Lewis and Peppers at CB and Wilson and Thomas at safety, with Countess coming on at nickel.

Well, opposite Wilson, who's only a third-year player himself, the other safety options are true sophomore, true sophomore, or true sophomore. Peppers will be right in the mix.
Jordan Kovacs and Jamar Adams ain't walking through that door.

That's what I'm saying. If someone had offered me $100K/year out of college to go live in Europe and play basketball, I would've lost my mind.

I'm sure they make more than the average college grad, schlepping coffee or teaching English overseas while making $200/month loan payments.

There're a lot bodies there with four stars after their names on Rivals. I'd hold off on calling that unit the best in the Big Ten, though, until they show consistently good play on the field.

Wait, DeMar DeRozen and Gordon Hayward are actually good NBA players? Man, I haven't been following the last few years.

Blatant foreshadowing device on the part of the show runners. That's not going to slip by this crowd.

Did you see Jackson's subtle reluctance to loan his pen to Ferrigno?! Intrastaff turmoil! Mutiny! Doom!

You think Hemholdt types make 80K? I would've guessed 50.

Going 0-6 doesn't have anything to do with being a leader. Burke has struggled a lot with the NBA game. I think it's too soon to just say that he'll be fine. Same as its too soon to say he'll never make it. He's got a lot to prove still to convince teams he can lead a winning team.

It's all relative. From the west coast you could get a $1000 plane ticket to Bangkok, and another $1000 would finance the best two week travel experience of your life there. For example.

Probably Kam Chatman. From what I've seen, he seems like he has the best ability of the bunch to be drafted as a role player and later randomly traded to a team that happens to be a title contender. Rare ability. Austin Daye had it in spades this year for San Antonio. Chatman looks like that kind of player.

Wiggins may be in play for Love. Link.
This quote was funny:
So, he's known Wiggins for a year? I'm sure he's deeply attached.
