|12 hours 55 min ago||well,||
i know lake superior state takes a lot of pride in being a d-1 hockey school, but man...$1300 per student per year to support athletics? that's a LOT of bread. i don't know that i'd be happy about paying that if i were a student, and i LOVE college hockey.

...not worried about the football side of this, at all. i do hate to see someone misfire when they're given the opportunity of a lifetime.
i wish him the best.
|1 day 13 hours ago||okay, i guess.||
i did read the whole post, for what it's worth. i would only say that if he or his mom is reading this site (which isn't completely unlikely), the word 'diva' is not a great look.
|1 day 15 hours ago||maybe...||
...we don't call a 16-year-old kid, getting attention from people that he watches on television, and probably thinks a four-year commitment that starts two years from now is almost literally forever, a "diva." or anything else, for that matter. just thinking.
|1 day 16 hours ago||ditto, man.||
none of this shit matters. at all. at. all.
|1 day 17 hours ago||right.||
"mistakes that shouldn't be happening."
|1 day 17 hours ago||no.||
|5 days 14 hours ago||"luck?" i don't think so.||
as he said after the game, "that's god at work, right there."
a sanctimonious prick...which made him a perfect dantonio player.
|5 days 14 hours ago||heh.||
"ryan lochte" apologized. and used the word "candid" in said apology.
if there is a god, i want to hear ryan lochte read that apology out loud. i suspect it would sound like some israeli bar band doing the rolling stones, or pretty much any abba original. phonetically, with literally no idea what is being said.

seriously, bobby? YOU, of all people, are throwing shade at someone? fuck the fuck off.

oughta be traveling with some of those 'invisalign' tooth straightener things. what a set of choppers.
that, and his realtor's business card. i'd be renting if i were him.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||i played with gary grant in the ccrb once...||
was on his team, and let me tell you, if you got an inch on someone, the ball was in your hands. he even missed me once and apologized to me on the way back down the court. which is just to say that he was a good dude.
rumeal was also playing that day, on the opposite team, and one time in transition i got matched up on him up top. he was holding the ball, and i, being a spazzy no-talent, began wildly waving my arms around to try to cut off his passing lanes. he got a disgusted look on his face and held the ball out to me...i slapped at it, trying to knock it out of his hands. of course, i failed, as his arms were like steel bands and mine were...not. he then put the ball on the floor, blew past me with an nba-level first step, and dunked over whatever dude decided to help out. it was sort of a thing of beauty.
meanwhile, glen rice watched on the next (empty) court over, raining down 30-footers. it was a good day.

what a nice surprise.
mike and i were high school teammates, me a 5'-8", 135-lb junior scout team defensive end still two years from a growth spurt, he a 6'-plus, 200-lb-plus future big ten linebacker and high school offensive end. you can guess how that went. but mike was also super-smart and 100% team-oriented. he wasn't interested in going through the motions - he pushed me to push him back, not only for his own improvement but (i suspect) for mine, too. he wanted everyone around him to be the best, assuming (rightly) that the better each of us became, the better the whole team was.
he was as low-key a high school superstar as you will ever find, and i truly believe that's one of the reasons we made two state finals (winning one) with him as a starter. we had some tremendously talented guys on those teams - several other guys went on to play d-1 (one of them - bobby morse - went to state and killed us on the day harbaugh broke his arm and later gritted his way to the nfl for four years), but mike was ALWAYS a team guy, first and foremost. and when i joined him in ann arbor a year after he got there, he always had time to chat when we bumped into each other on campus, something that almost certainly meant more to me than to him.
tl/dr - mike was and is a true michigan man.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||oh, i COMPLETELY agree!||
i hate the arrow, too. wouldn't miss it for one second.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||you didn't even touch the two worst timeout rules.||
1 - (and i admit that this may have been legislated out already and i'm just an idiot) no more timeouts if you catch the ball and call timeout from midair on your way out of bounds. the rule says you have to be in control of the ball. if you're in midair, you're not in control of the ball.
2 - no more timeouts if you're on the floor in the middle of a scrum. again, you're not in control of the ball if there's someone sitting on your thigh, or you can't pass to anyone else. call it a jump ball and check the arrow.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||just a reminder...||
the phrase "dave brandon's pimp hand" was not uncommon around here for a while. grading hsi job at this point is dumb, dumb, dumb.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||really? zero confidence?||
based on...what? the fact that you don't like the ONLY SCHEDULE THING HE'S DONE SINCE HE'S BEEN HERE?
|6 weeks 5 days ago||agreed!||
putting aside the sunk cost of the past twofer in east lansing, a twofer in east lansing now would be a net positive in the long run.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||no, no, no.||
WARD MANUAL GOT SCREWD! AAAAAAAH!
just wanted to be the first one to lose my shit on this particular thread.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||agreed.||
'arky' is worse than 'wiscy' or minney'. way worse.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||oh, honestly.||
why inject actual thinking into the arkansas part of the conversation? it's $2M, and god knows the department is short on cash.
what's worth more, $2M, and the possibility of maybe national exposure, if we're both good, or a game with notre dame that is absolutely guaranteed to garner national exposure and interest?
in all seriousness, it's not really an exaggeration to say that michigan vs notre dame is what college football is all about. michigan vs arkansas is not. if you told me i could get michigan vs arkansas tickets, or pay and extra $20 (after all, 100,000 fans X $20 = $2M) and get michigan vs notre dame? where do i pay?
|6 weeks 6 days ago||"embarrassing."||
|6 weeks 6 days ago||glad to have them back on the schedule.||
|6 weeks 6 days ago||that's an easy call.||
given the choice between paying $2M to play notre dame, or arkansas? yeah, i'll take notre dame by far.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Sheesh||
You sound like a real hoot.
Pro tip - bitching about stuff like this doesn't make you a straight shooter, or whatever. It just makes you a dick.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||...but last season was beilein's fault.||
...who needs an NBA 1st rounder when you can toss dan dakich out on the floor?
