I think the same. Grandma never liked Joff.

Query if that's a product of ability or the fact that he doesn't need to to get his hands well above a hoop that is 10 ft off the group (crayzy tall).
|1 week 6 days ago||He's actually pretty athletic||
He's actually pretty athletic for a dude that tall. He'll be on a D1 squad somewhere and if his knees don't fall to pieces likely be able to play in europe or even D league. I think the NBA is a little out of reach though. He's too slow.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed. Wisconsin bigs||
Agreed. Wisconsin bigs aren't as athletic as Kentucky's, but as a team they would ahve dictated pace much better.

Don't vacate games where the loser was found in violation. Actually would be more of a statement in favor of UCONN.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, but he got way closer to||
Yes, but he got way closer to being a prophet than any of us ever will! But close and tattoos = life long regret
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Our game against Louisville||
Our game against Louisville was 1 billion times better. That makes me feel good. Oh, and why could we not have played that Kentucky team?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I'm sad this season is over.||
I'm sad this season is over. But not because of how it ended. I'd be sad this season is over if we won the national championship. Even with last year's team and run, I haven't had this much fun since 2006.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||UConn is not very good at||
UConn is not very good at shooting. All day 3s are off the mark, can't hit runners, not even trying to get o the glass for layups. Woof.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||There would be no lible here.||
There would be no lible here. The incident at MSU is documented. the only libel that could possibly exist is if they used the names of the two players in an actual article. I think an op ed piece could actually use the names based off connecting the dots.

Gah. My bad. And it was a sarcastic "fool". While Kenpom should never be tempted, I'm sure a typo doesn't count.
|5 weeks 12 hours ago||ACE YOU FOOL! Kenpom is -9||
ACE YOU FOOL! Kenpom is -9 per summary yet you said Michigan by 12 at the end!! Remember can't temp Kenpom!
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I agree with all of this and||
I agree with all of this and as a 90s kid, (graduated high school in 2000) I distinctly remember this. I was also fortunate enough to have a teacher in 4th grade who came from a Montessori background. This is the one elementary school year I still remember vividly. The combination of art and music that he wove into the mandatory curriculum was the ebst singly year of education I received. Everything stuck because it wsa fun! He even wove art and music into the preparation for mandatory standardized tests. He won MassachusettsTeacher of the Year a couple years after I had him.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I've never understood the no||
I've never understood the no recess thing (or at least limited). It's caused by, in my view, two prevalent factors: 1) number of required classroom hours and 2) potential lawsuits against schools (other items I'm sure exist as well, but these are the two I latch on to). The first is ironic. Kids would do better in school if they had 30+ minutes a day to actually be kids. The second is cultural. Parents appear more willing to feed their kids ADHD pills than allow them to potentially hurt themselves being, you know, kids.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||This is by far the worst||
This is by far the worst argument thrown about by the avti-vaccine crowd and really makes me want to strangle them. PHARMA COMPANIES DO NOT MAKE MONEY ON VACCINES. Yes, the sell them so they get revenue. But the competition (race to the bottom in revenues) and cost of making therefore eat into all of that. More broadly, preventive care, like vaccination, DOES NOT generate long term revenue. Pharma makes way more money treating life long diseases. Diabetes, HIV, Crohn's, high cholesterol, etc. Humira is a $9 BILLION a year drug because people have to take it forever (and it's a really complicated drug that will pretty much never become generic as its a biosimilar). This is why most "big" pharma companies don't even make vaccines anymore. Not worth the investment.
And since I can forecast your comeback, there is and will not be a pharmaceutical cure for autism.

Meant for the clear MSU troller.

Interesting comment given Payne and Appling with the same allegations. Mods? Delete post and account please?

I can see it in your eyes.

Not tacky enough!

Given the vast amounts of space, don't you think it makes the most sense to focus searches on area the would have a comparable climate to earth? After all, life as we know it is only capable of surviving in a climate similar to ours. Short-sighted yes, but logical to look there first? of course.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I was just discussing this||
I was just discussing this with a colleague the other day. Two years ago they would call a charge so long as you were straight up, last year there appeared to be almost more charges than blocking fouls called (see Cuse game), and this year the charge is just gone (see Payne in the OSU game / 75% of Spike blocking fouls). I would actually be okay with the non-call scenario. That would keep defenders from constantly doing dangerour things to draw charges (12-13 season), but would also not completely penalize the defense for playing, well, defense.

Not even remotely similar. Or funny.

Is everyone of the same mind that Sean Penn's abilities, while impressive, were best captured in this film?
"All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine."

There is no way Beilein was pissed.

Did Blackmon re-sign with Indiana? Thought he opened it up.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Not winning an annual award||
Not winning an annual award doesn't mean people don't respect you. Leo DiCaprio will eventually get a life time achievement award.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||In other words, Beilein||
In other words, Beilein should win because he has accomplished something similar to Dantonio.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||The best thing about this||
The best thing about this situation is if a very deserving Miles wins the award, Beilein will likely be the first to congratulate him. And my guess is of Beilein wins, Miles will be the first to congratulate him. Both outstanding guys.

And if they had got Parker. Maybe when he transfers to do his masters at MSU...
