|5 weeks 2 days ago||Say what?||
It's hard to tease out a point from your post, but are you arguing that this article should not have been written because it's "negative?" Also, if you want new material on the weekends, maybe you could try stringing a few sentences together yourself? One of the first rules of the internet: don't whine about free content.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Hmmm||
Thanks Ace! Really hope the shenanagins don't continue here. I would feel icky (for lack of a better word) about the whole thing. Maybe that was only a thing while he was at Stanford?
|6 weeks 1 day ago||agree||
That quote stood out to me as well. If more players spoke out about that, I think the SEC coaches would quiet down real quick about satellite camps.
|14 weeks 6 hours ago||Indeed||
I enjoy Seth MacFarlane's take on the Brothers Gumbel.
|17 weeks 6 hours ago||Commits||
We're so starved for commits around here that I think even a random 2 star commit would cause the site to go all 502/503.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Kentucky is the Worst||
I really can't say I hate Duke as much this year. No Redick, no Singler, no Mason Plumlee. And all indications are that Coack K runs a clean program.
Kentucky, on the other hand, can all get run over by a bus as far as I'm concerned. Especially Cal.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Yes||
Right, that's why in my reply I acknowledged that it is still early. And I would argue that it would look worse if we end up with someone lesser than DeWeaver (hard to quantify, I know). Missing completely would quite obviously be suboptimal.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||QB||
If we whiff on Peters and Costello, does the DeWeaver thing look even worse? I know it's still early and whatnot, but I seem to remember the recruiting people around these parts saying DeWeaver wouldn't have been given up so easily if M wasn't confident in another guy. Was DeWeaver just not what they have in mind for the position?
|21 weeks 3 days ago||No Commits||
Any concern by the fact that we haven't had any new 2016 commits for a while? It seems like we've had a lot of splashy offers roll out but little in the way of actual results yet. I know signing day is almost a year away still, but Hoke already had a good number of signees at this point in his classes IIRC.

Read more, request free stuff from sick people less.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||JOKES||
All of the Brian jokes!!!!
|43 weeks 7 hours ago||Drew Sharp?||
This is just contrarian click-bait. Sorry man, maybe go write for the Freep. or Buzzfeed.
|44 weeks 2 days ago||Fine||
I imagine that Narduzzi helps Dantonio due to the auxiliary nature of assistant coaches who usually, you know, assist.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||Agree||
Agree here. He's a bit smarmy but it's silly to deny his ability. Wins a ton of games and does it with mostly middling 3-star recruits. Scary part is they've been steadily recruiting better. Narduzzi definitely helps him, though.
|45 weeks 3 days ago||Coach Manning||
Since DBs isn't working out all that great, maybe Manning can coach fist pumps??
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Scholarship revoked?||
Is this actually true? Haven't been able to retrieve it from any reliable-type sources. I thought they were withholding a decision...
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Great Weekend Ahead||
My best friend is getting married next weekend, so as a pre-bachelor party we are going out to the Sugar House downtown for drinks and then to Green Dot Stables for sliders. It's gonna be zoppity.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||I propose||
I propose we all light up in honor of Mitch. Smoke em if ya got em.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Just 60||
My liquor store doesn't have 90 but it's heavenly
|1 year 15 weeks ago||I get to||
I get to pay up and buy my buddy some Dogfish Head IPA for losing in our bracket challenge. Go Blue!!! Here's to McGary coming back? (please?)
|1 year 16 weeks ago||How Great||
How great would it be to see Denard lead some change in Jax? His electricity could get fans in the door if he could earn some consistent playing time. Also I have him as a low-cost keeper in my fantasy football league, so it would be nice for that to pay off.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Yikes||
Wow, that's RichRod-level tackling by Timmy. Coach Mattison would not be proud.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||FRIDAY!!||
Friday, beers, bourbon, Spring Game, Kate Upton Gifs, Tigers, Posbang, No work being done today!!!! Wooooo!!!!
|1 year 17 weeks ago||so||
Sooooo, what I'm hearing is that coloring books aren't cool anymore?
*throws coloring books away*
*digs one back out*
|1 year 17 weeks ago||I hope not||
I also thought this. I tend to hope not as he sounds like he always needs to clear his throat. Also cannot stand his "sports" show on 97.1. My guess is that it will be Shepard and this is a Spring Game-only thing.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Great Career||
It was great watching him shoot and be surprised when it didn't go down. He should have a spot in the NBA for a long time. There's always a place for shooters.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||I Can't Hear You!||
Basketball Basketball Basketball Stauskas Levert GR3 Basketball Sweet16 la la la la la....still happy!
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Go Blue!!||
Screw everyone who thinks they're clever and trendy by picking Tennessee. We got this by 8 at least.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||This information is far more||
This information is far more helpful and I think far more significant. Guess it just didn't make for a "LOOK AT ME" headline. (referencing ESPN author, not OP)
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Also||
This also reminds me of John L. Smith retiring the #1 jersey at MSU and taking names off the backs of the jerseys. Granted, those State teams were so bad that nobody cared what their names were, but that all proved to be gimmicks. Some of this stuff strikes me as coaches who don't have enough confidence in their message without the wacky, zany little things that are meant to emphasize it. Leaders don't need stuff like this IMHO.
