When I was a kid and came to visit my grandparents in Michigan, I remember it being amazing pizza. Once I got to school there, I was amazed that it was such crap.

Rome must not have understood the context. Winston went to Harbaugh for advice on how to handle the draft process. He wasn't there to learn life lessons from harbaugh like "don't steal." He was there to learn how to answer those questions when they come up. Harbaugh gave him advice on how he thought it should be handled for purposes of NFL interviews. Rome is an idiot.

I was once at Yankee stadium and saw a fan fall off the upper deck onto the screen behind home plate. The guy was drunk and thought it was awesome. Just delayed the game for like 20 minutes and got him arrested.

I'd say 4 is softball and 5 is volleyball.
|25 weeks 15 hours ago||I'll be going to the Maryland||
I'll be going to the Maryland game, and I plan on heading back to Michigan for at least one game this year - not sure which one, though.
|28 weeks 12 hours ago||I wouldn't want him in the||
I wouldn't want him in the first round either. Drops too many balls, was never as dominant as he should have been given his size/speed. Maybe Gardner had something to do with it, but he definitely didn't look like a first round talent to me this year.

Favorite athletes to watch...Tennis? Ummm...It's hard to get a personal preference question wrong, but I think he did.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||Coaching change...no||
Coaching change...no question. I can put on a game at work and listen while I get work done (until the last 2 minutes). But I have been checking about 5 websites seemingly every 15 minutes during the CC.
|33 weeks 13 hours ago||Nope. First of all, who||
Nope. First of all, who wants a coach who doubts his own ability so much as to be scared away from a job because of the coach at another school?
|33 weeks 6 days ago||I don't know if he's||
I don't know if he's interested and I'm not sure Michigan is interested, but this is a useless quote. What's he supposed to tell a recruit on an in-home? " I'm here to recruit you to LSU, but if my alma mater calls I'll be on the first plane out?" Even if he hedged, the recruit wouldn't be comfortable with LSU. Until he is offered the job, he needs to tell everybody at LSU he's staying because if he doesn't, his recruiting class will fall apart and his players will begin to be unsure of their future coach.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||You're right, four years||
You're right, four years isn't generally enough time. However, in this case it was. Hoke's teams have regressed each year in terms of wins and performance. He lost at home this year to Utah, Maryland and Minnesota. Ticket sales were plummeting and recruits were jumping ship.
|35 weeks 4 days ago||Don't forget about the||
Don't forget about the Cowboys who will probably beat the Giants tonight. They've got a manageable schedule and will have a good shot at getting a spot. It's those 4 teams for 2 spots...lets go lions, Seahawks and ucccchhh Cowboys (I'm a Giants fan, but Michigan comes before the Giants)

I agree with the low football IQ. On the no call PI in the third quarter (the CB clearly bumped Darboh? - sorry, I was in the 2nd to last row of the stadium) a Rutgers season ticket holder said it wasn't PI because the Ruthers corner didn't do it intentionally. The Michigan fans nearby were quite amused with such a stupid comment.

Whenever I try to type his name on my iPhone, it autocorrects to Kali's. I'm guessing when you see that happen, the poster was typing on an iPhone or iPad.

Nassau Coliseum is a travesty.

I don't like the idea of alcohol sales in the Big House. In a stadium that big, with that many people inside, when one idiot frat boy comes into the Big House hammered and then has a few more in the stadium and gets alcohol poisoning, it could be too difficult/take too long to get him the help he would require.
Besides, as has been mentioned by others, The 3:30 hour game is probably what prevents most of the fans from being drunk when they get back in their cars to head home after the game. Drunk drivers in Ann Arbor = Do not want.

Don Zimmer said the following while crying the day after the fight with Pedro: "I'm embarrassed for what happened last night. I'm embarrassed for the Yankees, the Red Sox, the fans, the umpires and my family."
The helmet incident had nothing to do with Pedro. He wore it in the dugout the day after he was hit with a foul ball off the bat of Chuck Knoblauch.

Not sure why you would focus on one of the lowlights in the career of one if the greatest baseball guys in history

No way the Giants take a corner in the first round. They signed DRC, and Walter Thurmond. They have Prince Amukamara and re-signed Trumaine McBride. Much more likely the Giants to OL or TE (if Ebron is there) in the first round. If they don't like the value that is avaliable at 12 on the OL, my guess is that they finally take a linebacker or the best available defensive end.

Took it from JR Smith. It was awesome.

Based on this, the top 3 seed and top 4 seed both are both in the Midwest. The region is stacked.

I was going to ask the same thing. All of Illinois's shots are at the rim...why so many layups?
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Those are actually BTN's||
Those are actually BTN's predictions for All-B1G Second Team and Third Team. Not the actual lists. They just announced 2nd team and Caris was on both the coach's and media's list.

It's a combination of a few things. Harvard relaxed its admission standards for basketball players when Amaker got there. He has thus been able to bring in sevearl athletes that are not "Harvard caliber." Additionally, the Ivy League has recently adopted a rule that allows its schools to offer grants that cover all of a student athlete's costs. They're not scholarships, but they're scholarships. Previously, the amount of a student athlete's grant was need-based.
There are also several stories of Amaker walking a very fine line when it comes to recruiting violations. There have been numerous reports of "bumping" and a story about a prospective assistant coach "randomly" showed up to a playground where a prospect was playing. The coach played some pickup with the kid, talked to him about Harvard, and Amaker hired the assistant soon after that interaction.
Also, don't forget about the academic scandal that hit Harvard last year.
Amaker's done a good job there, but I'm not so sure it's entirely above board.
