Did I ever tell you about the time Brasky took me out to go get a drink with him? We go off looking for a bar and we can't find one. Finally Brasky takes me to a vacant lot and says, "Here we are." We sat there for a year and a half and sure enough someone constructs a bar around us. The day they opened we ordered a shot, drank it, and then burned the place to the ground. Brasky yelled over the roar of the flames, "Always leave things the way you found em!"

At this point, I'm almost in favor of the team purposely tanking next week against Wisconsin in order to ensure that MSU doesn't get an outright B10 title, especially if OSU goes down today.

Sadly, Clarett's troubles really only came to light after the MNC.
It reminds me a little of the Mark McGwire/Sammy Sosa stuff in 1998, where everyone knew they were juicing and there was some evidence but not enough to tank them completely. But if Newton gets nailed before the season's over, I've gotta think it'd be pretty unprecedented.

I think having medical redshits is cause for granting players medical redshirts.

Finally! Someone taking responsibility for the awful defense!

Also, he was apparently blind until recently. Not bad production, considering.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||Oh please. That's like||
Oh please. That's like saying the QB #16 in NCAA '11 could be any random #16 in Michigan history, rather than Denard. Except for #1, there aren't that many jersey numbers that enough different big time players have worn to be able to legitimately say you're not singling one out specifically. "What, this #2 jersey? Charles Woodson? Never heard of him. This is my authentic 2008 Sam McGuffie jersey!"

...Or seismic advantages.

I don't see it happening. No matter how explosive he is, it's unlikely any NFL team would use him as a QB, except in a quasi-wildcat situation. He'll probably convert to a WR in the NFL, like Antwaan Randall El. But unless Denard converts to WR in college, I doubt he'd go in the first round of the NFL draft because he wouldn't have proven he can play WR at a high level going into the draft. So that's less incentive to jump early.
Plus, dude seems like a likable, grounded guy. Graduating is probably important to him.

Still fun to see them again!

But is it really complete until we have Preview 2010: Preview 2011?
|4 years 47 weeks ago||QB is a lot harder of a||
QB is a lot harder of a position to play, and generally the more experience the better the QB will be. RBs can come in as freshmen and do well. The QBs' experience here is better than nothing, but it's probably not optimistic to rate them higher than a 3 till they've got two full years of experience under each of their belts.

Why not? A bunch of their football players apparently need representation now.

I'm taking both PA and NJ, handwriting both although they allow laptops and I always did law school exams on the laptop. Based on the practice essays, you can pretty much get away with writing a single 5-sentence paragraph for each issue, and each essay has about 4 issues. So, you've only got to write about 20 sentences per essay, which is much more manageable than the word vomit law school exams turned into. I'm not too worried about not having enough time to finish the essays.

Don't have a link because the Every Three Weekly's website doesn't have any archives, but in 2002 Brian wrote an article for the UM satirical paper E3W titled, "John Navarre Blamed for Offense, Defense, Kicking Game, Iraq, 9/11, Everything Else."
That's the first thing I always think about when I see people who criticize Navarre. He had a lot of faults as a QB, but by his graduation I had become a fan of his.

Seriously. I heard he caused 9/11, the Great Depression, and the Holocaust.

They should erect a dome and put in a giant 90" HD screen, like at the Dallas Cowboys' stadium.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||Plus, isn't the general||
Plus, isn't the general consensus that David Terrell would've come back in 2001 if Henson hadn't left? The run D in 2001 was pretty sick (ignoring TJ Duckett); they just lacked an offense.

Retributive justice feels nice, but would essentially fuck over LLP's future. If he wasn't able to pay for school, he'd have to drop out and wouldn't get his degree. It sucks that he's been kicked off the team, but I'm still rooting for him to succeed in life.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Gotta say I'm pleased with||
Gotta say I'm pleased with his solid academic prospects, considering the press lately on some other, unnamed recruits. Will be nice to point to guys like Sousa to counter crap like, "RR only recruits meatheads!!1!!!1!"
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Yes, that's exactly it: it's||
Yes, that's exactly it: it's a good decision for all NCAA players to quit school as soon as they are good enough to make money, be it in the NBA or overseas. Considering how insane the NBA has become with throwing money at anyone with "potential," and the fact that, at 21, Harris is considered an "old man" by NBA teams, he probably should have entered the draft sooner.

Considering how much they locked down UT last year in the B12 championship game, their defense, at the least, was top-notch. And they have a tradition of having strong Ds. I don't imagine that'll suddenly go away.
But their O will only improve if they bring back the triple option :)

What I want to know is whether NCAA Football '11 will let you reorganize conferences. I'd finally be able to get U Chicago back into the B10.
