With Minnesota, Indiana, Nebraska, and Illinois receiving votes (in that order). Basketball conferences, man.
|3 weeks 19 hours ago||Football perspective||
As a Vikings fan, I have to admit I was hoping he'd fight it. Now with the plea, I expect a couple game suspension and a nice fine, but he'll be back this year. I didn't want to see that for football reasons... I don't believe he'll be back next year for $ reasons, so I see it as more valuable to grow the rookie RB and QB without AD out there. Obviously a better team with him out there, but I believe this growth by fire has been working pretty well thus far

My all time favorite, can't wait until that Friday. Hopefully Nik and Glenn do an MDen freebie too like Trey and Timmy did!

Just about everything has been said between the 2 posts, but there's one more thing that really pissed me off about how it was handled. I was at the end of the preline, and ran back and forth between the 2 a few times much to my amusement (I was drunk, so what wanna fight about it?). When el presidente decided to make the 2nd line, she had the maize rage 'core' walk about 100 feet away from her, then she announced her line just began, and then the glob walked up behind her. Outside of her claiming she was going to give the people in the other line 'fake' numbers to trick them into thinking they would get a good spot in line, it was the most dick thing she could have done. The core made a mess, and the athletic department cleaned it up.

I've never watched a more intense halftime performance. It was like MJ with the flu man
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Wow, never even considered||
Wow, never even considered this before you pointed it out. I'm a 3rd year ticket holder and that's an excellent point, every game so far this season I've been jammed into a row (not a big deal at all fwiw) and looking back at my first 2 years, I never experienced that. It would make the section look a lot better if it wasnt so compacted

Post this on each of the 5 daily "students are awful now but they were awesome when I was there" threads

I'd like to say that as a student...most students I know dont complain as much as the ones here (alright I'll just say it, they arent as bitchey). Of course being in that line isnt as fun as pregaming like before, but its not like you are just sitting looking at the floor. There's free food, phone charging stations, water and toilets. Theres a big ass tv to watch the early games and obviously you can bring in drinks (ooohh ahhhhh) and other stuff like that to make the time go by! Shit there's other humans too, talk to em. I got there around 10am and that time flew pretty quick.

As well as Exhibit A for "what today's athletes already get beyond a scholarship that people love to forget"

Games like these against Cleveland, in their house, goddamn. Can you imagine how that feels on the other side, daggers mang, daggers

Kinda awkward timing with the UM fan day stuff coming up this weekend

He can, by the rules, come back and play after the 50 games. The speculation is if the team wants him back after all of this
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Kinda the same reason you||
Kinda the same reason you leave the top hitting prospect down and bring up a slightly more experienced guy, you want them to gain that experience. Reed will be better served in the long run getting quality innings in Toledo and right now Bondo can be a solid long relief guy and the front end. Maybe he's good maybe he isnt, it really isnt much risk.

Currently a student at UM, and I consider myself a fan of both Central and Western. Don't hate on the instate guys, love to see these kind of things going on in Kalamazoo. Good for them.

This is my favorite thread ever.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||They had no room for him at||
They had no room for him at any of the 3 positions...so they basically only gave up prospects to get Peavy. That's not a bad move, they were pretty formidable without him
|1 year 16 weeks ago||What do you think they need||
What do you think they need in the bullpen? I think they could use a lefty, but the back end is looking pretty good with Smyly-Veras-Benoit now. Hopefully Rondon continues to develop and Dotel is throwing now so he could be back...I think this bullpen can work it out
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Can't debate the awful past||
Can't debate the awful past but if this sort of thing sets a precident - 50/100/150/lifetime suspensions without even having positive tests in certain cases is certainly getting tough. Rather the league "get tough" from now on than scrape by on the limiting testing done in some other leagues
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Not debating James' point,||
Not debating James' point, but it's not like they gave him up for nothing, Peavy is a tremendous addition to that rotation. Gotta give talent to get talent

He hit .257 in the minors, and has hit .330 with over 200 at bats. To assume he's going to be a Danny Worth bat off of that, comeon man.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Seems like its unanimous for||
Seems like its unanimous for all of the guys on the list minus ARod...a few guys reported that MLB would actually seek longer suspensions to guys that appealled, so the PA was proably keen on getting these guys to just take it. Obviously MLB has something on all these guys if they are taking it tho...
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Certainly hope so. Not to||
Certainly hope so. Not to mention if this guy locks down either SS or 2B, you save quite a bit of money that would have been used to resign Peralta (assuming that would be the move).
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Just saying it may be, if you||
Just saying it may be, if you look at his minor league numbers, they are closer to .250. Every year young guys come up and hit it up before calming down either in the second half or in their 2nd year. I'm not saying he wont be a good stick, I just don't want people who don't know him to think he's a .300 write in
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Couldn't agree more. Hate to||
Couldn't agree more. Hate to send a quality guy like Avi to a division foe, but this was a great proactive move by Dombo. I was mentally preparing myself for Perez/Santiago/Worth holding down the middle for a while, but...yea. This is better.
