that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

Did not have the luxury of logging in yesterday and did not see the prior post. GIF is fantastic.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Not surprising and, on reflection, not at all thread-worthy ...||
... it was his being described as "dean" that set me back. Doesn't sit right. The other stuff is standard fare defense of a former colleague, as you note.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||GB Helmet = This is Your Brain on Multiple Concussions||
Major negative subliminal symbolism.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Only mildly entertaining thing is no MSU redesign. Apparently...||
... already garish enough. I'm sure, however, that this will be bulletin board material for Dantonio. "They don't even respect us enough to mar our helmet!!!!"
|9 weeks 6 days ago||I think Walton should do what he want to do, which likely ...||
... is to leave it all out there on the floor like the rest of the guys did today. That attitude will get M back to Big Ten title winning form much quicker than your approach of "constructive pessimism" to coin a term.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Knicks have been more enjoyable to watch with wierd guys ...||
It's been more fun to watch the collection of no-names the Knicks now put out on the court than any of the cut and paste "contenders" Dolan has pressured his GMs to concoct over the last decade or so.

"I Believe I can fly". Thanks for digging this up.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Albrecht going all mini-Gervin||
Fade away finger roll. If that's a thing.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I really dislike these floor slappies ...||
We came out of the gate strong. The team knows they can win here.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Announcer: "Tropp is not a fighter..."||
Translation: he's a cowardly, cheap-shop artist POS who finally got what was coming to him.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Not anymore.||
Get the eff off my spellin'
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Um, celebrating the win is living in the moment.||
Nothing wrong with taking a wider view, which is what you're actually doing, but it's more fitting to a mid-season review or end-season post mortem. Nothing invalid in any of what you're saying, just an awkward fit for this thread.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Los Hermanos Subs will not be deterred from something ....||
Los Hermanos Subs will not be deterred from cheering something breaking good for the program.
But it's not like anyone is claiming we're going to take down Kentucky or cut nets in the NCAAs. The balance of comments on the blog is that an NIT run will be this team's ceiling.
Your question would be equally valid in the context of post-game threads for NJIT and EMU, but feels out of place here.
Nothing wrong with celebrating some smaller things. They eventually add up, and I believe Beilein's banked the benefit of any doubts over his tenure.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Darius was a true master of the high post-haste dudgeon...||
Good to have a lot to choose from. Can't be enough water shed on and by Spartys, to my mind.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||I'll take fun every time ...||
A fun likeable team, well coached and reaching beyond apparent potential is fine with me. Much better than one-and-done teams that have little chance of living up to the stratospheric hype -- only one team can win the NCAA tournament each year, after all, and even the "best" can be taken down in one game.
Don't get me wrong, I want Beilein to get a title or two, and think he has the chops if the pieces and March luck fall in place, but for a program with class, style and longevity, wouldn't trade him for anyone out there.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Automatic Bid Can Be Our "next year"||
Can't we get one in the Conference Tourney? I think Beilein and crew can get themselves in shape for a run.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||... and Subs!!||
He's a crazy good coach.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||At first I thought that was Charlie Weis's face superimposed ...||
Yes, I'm a little slow, but an understandable mistake?
|13 weeks 3 days ago||LOL, posted my play(er) pic of Marcus while this was going up.||
Agree with your analysis. Marcus was always always going for the knock-out blow, which was exactly what was needed, and deserved, in Boston's case. He could get away with this approach given the strength of the defense and backfield he was part of.
But the question was "who is your favorite player to watch" not "who was the most effective player". I'll watch prima donna OSU wide-outs get destroyed every time. If only we could suit Cris Carter back up and start there.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||This play(er)||
I will always adore Marcus for punking Boston. Weathers is a close second.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I was out of the country for the Wheatley years ...||
... only knew him from the rare International Tribune story, pre-easy-Internet. WHAT a Beast. Knew he had the stats, but never saw the combination of speed and power that accomplished it. Those Rose Bowl runs in particular. Just wow.

I think they have a vertebral agreement to that effect.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||The Tide has Turned, Tusca-loser.||
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Not sure if you're serious...||
But Oregon wins that game regardless. Many of those turnovers were of the forced variety. That the Winston one looked like yakety-sax takes nothing away from that.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, because otherwise their tears would not be as delicous...||
And they earned the right to have their ass well and truly kicked, both in the regular season and karmically.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Enjoy the flight home, FSU. Glad it's as long as possible...||
Finally something nice to remember this team by.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Spardy gonna Spard ...||
Same story however it's spelt.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Why is the Spartan logo Blue? LOL||
|15 weeks 4 days ago||The circle of sports life ...||
Johnny Dawkins was the first and last Duke player I genuinely enjoyed watching play -- it will be very nice to now cheer for his son.
