When people talk about long arms on linemen, they don't just mean proportionately long because they're tall; they mean disproportionately long arms. Which is most definitely a disadvantage in the bench press.

Paragraphs don't really solve the "TL;DR", unfortunately.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I can attest to the strong||
I can attest to the strong undercurrents of "if we let you come here, keep us in mind for when you go pro in whatever" from having attended Michigan, too. And that's despite paying my own way rather than giving me a scholarship.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||If they don't want Michigan||
If they don't want Michigan visiting Florida during the Spring (or Winter, as the writer points out), surely the SEC would enthusiastically support shifting many of the Bowl games up north, right?

down vote for topic that has already been beaten to death.

I don't see how this is anything remotely close to a "pretty fine line". Is it an endorsement if Rivals interviews the recruit and publishes information about them, with the goal of making money for Rivals? Here, an insurance company is publishing stories about athletes 'chasing their dreams' with the goal of attracting customers.

I'm wondering what makes that a bullshit offering?
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Though, in fairness, I was||
Though, in fairness, I was reading an article on the subject of grad transfers that mentioned the vast majority of grad transfers only enroll for one semester as their new school (i.e., the one that overlaps with football season) and then drop out. Not saying that's the case here, but the fact that very few students are following through on a degree is why the NCAA wants to close the 'loophole.'

Sorry, was assuming there was just one year of eligibility remaining. In that case, SOMEONE IS PAYING THE FULL BILL!
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I don't think people here are||
I don't think people here are arguing they want to win the wrong way; they're questioning that that's actually the case here.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Think you might want to base||
Think you might want to base an assessment of character on more than a tweet. From what I've seen on the twitters, lots of recruits and football players in generally talk about getting the money, even though they're not actually getting any now.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||There are typically a handful||
There are typically a handful of them with few to no work experience each year, but they generally need to be exceptional candidates in other ways and usually have something other than work experience that they can bring to the table.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I'm glad this assurance is||
I'm glad this assurance is helpful for you. And, not, you know, because the coaching staff wants him to be part of the team.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I assume his interest is||
I assume his interest is because SOMEONE ELSE IS GOING TO PAY HALF THE COST, which is a pretty big incentive on his part. Versus paying twice as much by doing it a few years from now. He'd get more out of it a few years from now, but if he can get a top MBA for at least half off then that seems like a great deal to me.

If it makes you feel any better, terrapins aren't an official taxonomic unit, according to Wikipedia. Which sort of means that people decided to start calling a bunch of turtles "terrapins" without making sure they were, you know, related in any way. I feel like there's an analogy here to Maryland, but can't be bothered to think about it any longer.

Someone also linked the Bleacher Report which has a block quote from a Big Ten associate Commissioner in it that confirms it is based on the 85, not 25.

Fun = winning. And he works his ass off to make sure he has as much fun as possible.

Fantastic read and a really well-grounded guy. Will be happy for him when he gets to check off #5 on the list and sad for us because it probably won't be here (at least at first, but maybe down the road...)
|15 weeks 4 days ago||If anything, that's why||
If anything, that's why 'GOAT' discussions are ridiculous to me and these sorts of discussions really ought to be focused on whether Saban is the greatest in the last few decades or during the time in which he coached. When comparing to someone who coached a hundred years ago, do we really think we have a similar perspective on the relative merits of each coach?

According to the Public Health Service Act, living in a vehicle meets the definition of being "homeless".
|20 weeks 5 days ago||I think you have a fair||
I think you have a fair point. "Consensus" is not always used with the same meaning as "unanimous", which is probably the better word to make the point here. People have already generally said Gary is the consensus #1 player and now that is unanimous among the major rating servies.

Agree 100%. Prior to Durkin actually leaving there have been plenty of comments from people excited about the expansion of the Harbaugh coaching tree and how we'd attract great coaches, and then hire other great coaches to replace them. Now that it's actually happening the sky is falling.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Yes, there are limits. I||
Yes, there are limits. I believe football is 56; baseball is 25; and basketball is 12, as examples. And athletes are limited to 5 (unless you're talking about lower divisions, in which case they're unlimited.)
Edit: in terms of playing by different rules, it's my understanding schools can choose to opt to not pay for certain expenses. Presumably that's not happening with most Power 5 schools where I assume they're paying for anything allowed.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||I get your heart is in the||
I get your heart is in the right place here, but my recommendation is to avoid making analogies between situations where someone died and situations where someone has a terminal illness. Very bad form, even though you have the very best intentions.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||I get your premise about this||
I get your premise about this being unifying, but not at all comfortable comparing the death of Bo (someone who lived a full life) with a child suffering through a terminal illness.
