"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

|2 days 5 hours ago||Ok, really? I loved me some||
Ok, really? I loved me some Skeeps, but is this really the official Twitter account of the restaurant Tweeting a video of (actual or simulated) customers having sex at their bar? Health code violation or something, right? Who runs that place?
EDIT: Ok, I think it's pretty clearly not two people having sex on second viewing (though can't be 100% sure). Still.....

"I just want a reasonable price."
Seems pretty contrary to your earlier post bragging about getting nearly $2k for them.

Sell the tickets to M fans. Or give them to M fans or friends or family. Minimally, don't be a fucking douche.
There's any number of ways to ensure they get to M alums/fans and you clearly are too douchetastic to be bothered with the little extra effort that would be required.

Cool thing to come across Twitter: Ispheming just had a kid score a TD in the D8 game for the fourth straight year. Ozzy Corp has now scored a TD in 4 different state championship games. What a cool record.

Give some credit to M's defense. Getting it to a post player is not a given. M's guards were much bigger and longer than UT's guards which makes getting the ball to the post a chore itself.

Wagner = 5 of the future. Near future. By start of B10 season.
Still gettign healthy - no Spike. We're going to be a much better team in 4 weeks.
Lots a things to be happy about. All in all, we're 4-2 with no bad losses on the resume. Many "power conference" teams cannot say the same.

I seriously hate this "SaferThanEver MHSAA Football" commercial. Seriously.
I agree that some parents make ill-informed decisions regarding what their sons can do based on SAFETY. However, there are plenty of other great high school sports - why not make commercials to encourage kids to just play. Whatever they want. And to not specialize in one sport.

Yeah, we are.
You'll point to Walton, Spike, LeVert and Irvin and you're right... except three of those guys have been hurt.
Wilson, Wagner, Doyle are all extremely raw and we need at least one of them to play a large role. MAAR and Dawkins are still young as well.

DJ Wilson looked great in open practices, so this is a huge game. If he can become that starting 5, we'd be much more athletic out there.

Don't know who would neg this.
Beliein was voted the best offensive coach in the country by his peers.
Yes, we have no bigs. We missed out on a couple recruits. To use that and extrapolate that Beilein can't coach an offense is the stupidest thing on this blog. I can't believe so many people can be so dumb. Seriously. The experts of the game say Beilein is the best. Who the fuck is anyone of us to say "Beilein's offense sucks."

Yeah, Mitch McGary never was utilized well. Just don't watch that VCU game or any other number of games he was healthy.

Winning a National championship in basketball is half a lottery, dumbass.
Getting to a final four is a major accomplishment. He was a couple calls, a couple shots, or a couple shots away from winning it all.
|4 days 13 hours ago||Kam Chatman was an "alpha."||
Kam Chatman was an "alpha." Zak Irvin was Mr. Basketball in Indiana.
LeVert was going to go to Ohio. University.
Point being, complaining about recruiting in basketball is a little silly.

Beilein just signed an extension through 2021...

There's a huge gap between "average" and "elite," n'est pas?
|4 days 13 hours ago||You act like there's a 5-star||
You act like there's a 5-star center for every team in every recruiting class.
Finding elite big men is not easy. It's exponentially harder to get them to commit to any particular team.

He was named by his fellow coaches as the best offensive mind in the game... but yeah that's all Burke and Stauskas...

Surprised Doyle started after the egg he laid last game... but pulled quickly. Looks like JB means business and is looking for someone, anyone, to step up.

This season of The Leftovers has been GREAT. Totally cohesive and focused - unlike season 1. Season 1 was good enough to keep me into it, but this season seems much more robust.

Side question: At what point do we have a new generation term? I'm a millenial, but I'm 28 and when I was in high school my parents didn't care what I did or when and they certainly didn't hand me anything. They bought me dinner when they visited college and took me grocery shopping.
I don't want to be lumped in with today's teens, thank you very much.

Both had fine careers. Stu set (and may hold forever) the all time games played record at UM.

The Illinois game at home in the 05-06 year comes to mind. They were ranked something like 9 - it was a huge win and at the time it seemed like that win would guarantee our tourney birth. One of the best game atmosphere's I've ever been at. Then we tanked down the stretch and missed our tourney bid...

Ok, in fairness, M's great teams of the mid-to-late 2000s were also going up against a dynasty of epic proportions at PSU (Nat'l titles in '07, '08, '09). This PSU team is not those PSU teams.

People repeating other people's puns. A poor sine of the times.
