Exactly right. You can't do an autopsy on someone, find CTE, and say "yep, football did that." You know what else a lot of football players did (especially in the 70s and 80s)? Cocaine, heavy alcohol use and steroids. These are called confounding variables and it's impossible to gauge what contribution each had to the eventual diagnosis

If Barrett continues to run the ball 20 times/game and somehow makes it to The Game healthy that will be final confirmation I need to know that Urban Meyer has made a deal with the devil. I just can't believe he can sustain that level of physical punishment for 11 games.

I noticed that too while listening to College sports radio this morning. They were fawning over Clemson-Louisville and Tennessee-Georgia as great games while saying our game wasn't pretty. Clemson-Louisville had 8 combined turnovers and ended on a kid not understanding where the first down marker was.

I'm looking to do this too. What type of generator do people use with tailgator dishes?

These are really really bad. The blue jersey looks like a nightgown. Very cheap looking

I've lived in Florida the last 2 years and still have not gotten used to the summer heat - it is seriously oppressive and I feel like I've had a low grade sweat for 3 months. We are moving back to the mitten next weekend and I cannot wait. Personally, I'd take winter over the summer down here no question. You can always put a coat on, there's only so much clothing you can take off . . .

Truly one of the most fun players to watch all time. Pavel was the worth the price of admission, so impressive to watch in person. Most predicted this would happen, but still sad just the same

What is your fear level for that? We have an infant and I'm not sure I trust the money will be there when it's time for him to go to Michigan.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||This is exactly right. It was||
This is exactly right. It was crazy how many random employees the dental school had whose only job seemed to be collecting our assignments or printing off power points. I just pray colleges get their comeuppance before I have to start paying for my son. Luckily he's only 7 weeks, so we've got time.

Thank you for putting so much effort into these. I really appreciate the info, so much more accurate than the national preview mags.

And yet, this team has 0 NCAA tourney wins since 2011. I appreciate all Red has done for Michigan hockey, but it really seems he is becoming a hinderance

Sad news. He may be my favorite all time Wing to watch. Detroit fans have really been spoiled with some of the amazing talent that has come through in the last 25 years - Yzerman, Fedorov, Lidstrom, Datysuk. To me, that's why keeping the playoff streak alive is so special, it keeps the connection to that era alive. Hopefully they can make some noise against Tampa . . .
|46 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly. The reality is only||
Exactly. The reality is only one team wins their last game, so if a championship is the measuring point of success, that means there are 29 failures every year. Detroit has won their fair share of cups during the streak too . .

I agree with these. Billy sauer completely blew that 2008 game. We managed to come all the way back with Hogan in net only to lose in OT. It looked like the boys were completely out of gas by that point.

Guy left his feet and put his shoulder in motte's head, really dirty. That's exactly what they want out of hockey

Growing up in michigan, you simply have to deal with them way more than osu fans. And I'm sure all of us have at least a few sparties that have infiltrated our families. So familiarity breeds contempt.

So the safety of 100000 people is less important to you than your personal convenience? I understand we can't let the terrorists win by living in fear, but to pretend like a football game is not a potential target for these psychos is naive.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||These Williams sister major||
These Williams sister major matches almost never live up to the hype. If I remember right, there was a time when they were both winning everything (early 2000s) and people suspected their dad would dictate who would win when they met in Major finals because the matches were rarely tight. At this point with her illness, I doubt Venus has the physical stamina to win tonight and I'm sure it would be really difficult to be the one to deny her sister a shot at the historic grand slam.

They are also accused of rape much less frequently than football/bball players
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I'm a huge football fan, but||
I'm a huge football fan, but my (hopefully soon) future children won't be playing football. For me, it's not just the concussion issue. It's the whole body long term issues that football players tend to have - bad ankles, knees, shoulders, etc. You can't put your kids in a bubble, they are going to be exposed to some risk, but the risk of long term effects of football is too great to justify.
Really any other sport is on the table from a health standpoint. I really prefer they not play baseball, because selfishly I can't stand baseball or spending most of my summer watching little league baseball instead of on a boat on a lake. I played hockey growing up and (as far as I know) have had no concussion/brain injury issues. I would feel comfortable and will encourage my kids to play hockey because the risk for joint injuries is much lower than football and they've raised the start of body checking from 10 to 12.

I don't know about that. This team had the eastern conference champs on the ropes in the first round and if not for 2 minutes of Ericcson falling asleep in game 4 likely beats Tampa. The east is wide open right now, if the pieces come together right, I think the wings can still make a run.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Very cool||
Sergei/Stevie were my favorites when I was a kid (still have my youth Fedorov jersey) and as I played and watched more hockey I became more aware of just how incredible Nick Lidstrom was. He was never out of position, never made a bad pass, and was better at getting shots through from the point than anyone I've ever seen. As celebrated as he is, I still think he's underrated because there was no aspect of his game that was overwhelming, but his hockey sense makes him, in my mind, the best overall defenseman of all time. I know that's highly debatable and I'm biased as a Wings fan, but I just don't think you could engineer a defenseman to be much better than he was.
