"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."

Job interviewer: Alex, tell us about a time you had a conflict with a previous supervisor and how you dealt with it.

His whole point is that "restaurants are under pressure to generate profit," just as you say. In AA, the pressure is for more Americanized food because there are more Americanized people. In larger, more diverse cities, there is pressure for more authentic food because there are niche markets.

Yes, they're gaining a massive competitive advantage against the rest of the Big Ten that really can't be swept under the rug. They've signed 20 to 30 more players than us in the past 4-5 classes, giving them fresh talent to plug in when other recruits inevitably don't pan out. When our recruits don't pan out, they still start for us.

Yeah, there was just something corny about this episode. Sloppy, trite dialogue and too much of it. Felt like a caricature of itself. Cersei is spiteful! Jon Snow is earnest! Brienne is honorable but full of self-doubt! Stannis is tough but fair!

Pretty terrible premier, if you ask me. I'm really worried about what D&D do with this now that they're off on their own.

Read recently that NJIT ranks higher than U-M in average professor salary. Hidden causal factor in basketball success?

I admit to voting for Hideki simply because of the sign.

Remember that one time, three years ago, when we landed the top-rated five-star defensive tackle in the country? Who's a senior on the team now? No?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I really, really, really||
I really, really, really hope Kugler pans out. If you believe that teams are built from the inside out, then it would be pretty devasting for us to completely strike out on landing both the top-rated NT in his class (Pipkins) and the top rated center in his class (Kugler).

Saying Verlander is "above average" is too kind at this point.

I agree with you, in general, but it's uncommon for a guy to be coronated a starter at this point unless they were a star the previous season. We have no stars from the previous season, which is partly your point. But that doesn't mean that some guys are getting clear separation this spring.

Nothing about taking Ruddock would deter "long-term gains"

I'm excited as hell for the Harbaugh era, but people were raving in 2008 about the tempo of RR's practices and how they were a welcome departure from the slower Lloyd days. Then they were raving about how much teaching took place in Hoke's practices in 2011 and how they were a welcome departure from the hurried RR days. Now they're raving about the tempo of Harbaugh's practices and how they're a welcome departure from the slower Hoke days. Pretty funny.

They hit their threes. We didn't. That was the ballgame.

Very unique player that fit perfectly with the 2003-2008 Pistons. I would have guessed he retired at least two years ago, though.

One of the QBs will pan out. We have four guys who are all highly rated, top-20 in their class QBs. Just like any other position, if you have that many talented players, a good coaching staff will get at least one (and probably more) of them to perform.

That absolutely is elite. I challenge you to find even five other teams in the country with more talent in their two-deep. I'd bet there aren't five teams with a higher 247 Composite average in their two-deep.

|7 weeks 5 days ago||Cincinnati to the Big Ten||
Cincinnati to the Big Ten would be great for us, and we should all be advocating for it. It's an unbelievable structural advantage for Ohio State that its the only major football program in the most talent-rich state in the conference. It's honestly a miracle that they don't win the conference every year. Their situation is almost the hypothetical equivalent to UF being the only major football program in the state of Florida. Only if the state of Florida were surrounded by Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, and other states that don't produce much talent.
The higher the profile of Cincinnati, the worse for Ohio State, and the better for us.

No, you forgot that we're somehow the only team in the country that has three consecutive recruiting classes of <20.

No he's saying that instead of telling kids that you recruited and accepted into your football family, "you'll never play here again," Meyer should say, "every day is an open competition, and I'm going to do my best as your coach to make you the best player you can be and have the best chance to compete."
