|2 weeks 1 day ago||I'm confused why you||
I'm confused why you automatically assume it's bullshit. You do realize fans of every sports team want players who played poorly to be cut or traded, right?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||They really struggled against||
They really struggled against Wisconsin the first time around.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Only a moronic defense||
Only a moronic defense coordinator would see Evans or Higdon come in the game and then sell out for the run.
To those of you saying other RBs signal a run play, have you watched any Michigan games recently?
I can only assume no, otherwise you would realize RBs are capable of running routes like a WR or TE, because you would have seen McCray and Gedeon getting beat by RBs catching passes out of the backfield.
Which RB we insert signals absolutely nothing in regards to whether the play is a run or pass.

Their number one QB target in the 2018 class is a backup HS QB.

Seriously, the attack on Dizzo by gameboy was bad enough, but this is just embarrassing.

Danny O'Brien said Michigan was too liberal for him.

The rumor is he failed a drug test.

No top 4 team is under the radar.
|11 weeks 21 hours ago||I hope you realize that||
I hope you realize that estimate is as accurate as pulling numbers out of a hat.
|12 weeks 5 hours ago||Lack of communication is to||
Lack of communication is to recruits the staff doesn't want to keep for the most part.
If somebody like DPJ had committed two years ago, the staff would still be contacting him regularly.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Nobody is gonna win ROY if||
Nobody is gonna win ROY if they don't have enough PA to qualify for the batting title.
Fulmer has that award on lock.

20 years...15,000 years...18,000 years, what's the difference?

Minor league players don't make 6 figures.

No ML team will give Tebow a spot on their 40 man roster just to sell a few extra tickets.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||I stay in Downtown GR, there||
I stay in Downtown GR, there was a lot of rain but never really got that bad here.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||I grew up right by the||
I grew up right by the Detroit Zoo at 10 and Woodward, fuck the Dream Cruise.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||He would absolutely be an NFL||
He would absolutely be an NFL caliber TE, but really not sure why you think he would be a dominant pitcher. His freak size and athleticism won't benefit him all that much on the mound.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||I don't know if Ginn claimed||
I don't know if Ginn claimed to beat Bolt, but he did say he thinks he would beat him in the 40 before Bolt passed him by.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, I guess they probably||
Yeah, I guess they probably could just DFA him.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Yup, in this instance he||
Yup, in this instance he won't have to do anything to collect his paycheck.
He'll occupy a spot on the Rangers 40 man roster each winter, and then be placed on the 60 day DL each spring.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Prince is not officially||
Prince is not officially retiring, he is just being declared physically unable to play by the Texas team doctors.
So the Tigers and Rangers are on the hook for his whole contract, unless he decides to officially retire early.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||He would have to go through||
He would have to go through the motions and pretend to still be trying to recover to play, like Matt Harrison, in order to collect the full contract amount.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||That was a deferred deal,||
That was a deferred deal, Bonilla completed his contract, he didn't retire before his contract was up.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||You don't retire and keep||
You don't retire and keep collecting paychecks.
Most of the time the team and player agree to a buyout of some sort.

Top 15 team is now considered mediocre?

"Professor Arthur DeVany's paper"Steroids, Home Runs and the Law of Genius" (From the summary: There is no evidence that steroid use has altered home run hitting and those who argue otherwise are profoundly ignorant of the statistics of home runs, the physics of baseball, and of the physiological effects of steroids.)
Baseball Prospectus' March 30, 2005, "Setting the Stage" column by analyst Nate Silver: Steroids: This is far from a perfect experiment. But at the very least, it is highly problematic for the Steroid Gap Theory.
Baseball Prospectus' book Baseball Between the Numbers, with a chapter "What Do Statistics Tell Us About Steroids?", again by Nate Silver but using a different approach than the article above: By this definition, Power Spikes have been neither any more nor any less frequent in the [so-called] Juiced Era than in previous periods.
The Juice, book by Will Carroll containing a chapter-length analysis by Jay Jaffe in which no effect is detected; the text is not available on line, but what is available are Carroll's comments: As Jay Jaffe showed in The Juice and Nate Silver showed in Baseball Between The Numbers, there's no statistical evidence that performance-enhancing drugs of any type show up in the numbers. I'm not saying there's not an effect, just that people smarter than me can't find it statistically.
Professors Jonathan R. Cole (sociology, Columbia) and Stephen M. Stigler (statistics, University of Chicago), in an article "More Juice, Less Punch" in the December 22, 2007 Op-Ed section of The New York Times, examined before-and-after stats for identified steroid users and concluded that examination of the data on the players featured in the Mitchell report suggests that in most cases the drugs had either little or a negative effect."

I get they have a good football program and open enrollment, but man I don't see why somebody would want to transfer to OP from a school like Belleville.

Vito's is voted best pizza on the Westside!
But yeah, they're pizza is really just whatever. Overpriced for the quality.
I used to live just a few blocks away from there as well.

When you say Jumper will be an all time classic, are you talking about that terrible movie with Hayden Christensen?
|17 weeks 8 hours ago||Forcing transfers to sit out||
Forcing transfers to sit out a year is what prevents that from happening, not the restrictions on what schools players can transfer to.
