Even women's teams only have 40 at the high end, and that is very high.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Rowing is a walk-on heavy||
Rowing is a walk-on heavy sport, and there are some good hs programs in Ohio. As a result, a very good club team could catch lightning in a bottle and beat a few teams at IRAs (the varsity national championship). However, even though men's heavyweight rowing has gotten more competitive as women's rowing has grown in popularity (only need one boathouse, set of rowing machines...but separate boats though), I would be shocked if Michigan could make the petite finals on a consistent basis.

What about a sixth chance after the fifth dead hooker (allegedly)?

Next he will be Judge Judy's bailiff in a special episode filmed at Cracker Barrel. Where Greg Sankey is the defendant.

Maybe this wasn't really about Michigan--the SEC was concerned about the growing trend of cupcakes, you know, actually winning games.

One reason may be that this season may well have gone better without Caris and Spike injuries. Also, although there were no real bad losses, it was head-scratching why we could beat Maryland and Purdue at home (and almost Maryland on the road) among others but look so bad against Iowa and MSU. To me it was the disappointment of inconsistency.

Good for Hoke. It looks like a lot more than 40 pounds.

More like nice owner...although I know the board gets surly when it comes to Chicago teams, fans of teams in Michigan don't have to look far for parallel examples of poor ownership.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Well, I for one certainly||
Well, I for one certainly didn't foresee Michigan having a better winning percentage than MSU in the tourney.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed, and my point about it||
Agreed, and my point about it being weird that accusations of being a "Walmart Wolverine" on a Michigan blog still stands no matter where WD goes to school.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||It is a bit strange on a||
It is a bit strange on a Michigan blog for one fan to call another a Walmart Wolverine, but it goes from strange to really strange when the target is a current student.

Eschewing the more obvious and literal joke, I nominate Purdue for Ralphie's little brother.

Well, I'm sure Kansas basketball's participation in the world university games over summer vacation will prevent the Big 12 commish from piling on /s
|15 weeks 5 days ago||He must have been thinking so||
He must have been thinking so hard about the question "is our children learning" that he forgot to object to all of the mean, nasty requirements on Clemson's football program in the two weeks before the national championship and the winter break before the quarterfinals.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, at times Kornheiser and||
Yeah, at times Kornheiser and Wilbon are vanishingly few steps above Bayless and Smith...but this is how narratives start. First a contrarian challenges the conventional wisdom (SEC #1 you guys) because it gets attention. Then a contrarian decides to say it repeatedly because it starts a conversation (even if that mostly means other more "serious" types rejecting the challenge to the narrative) and gets them attention. If Harbaugh has success over time, the Harbaugh-in-the-SEC's-Head narrative looks more and more plausible, and stops being a contrarian viewpoint.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Uh, Sankey, perhaps you||
Uh, Sankey, perhaps you should be crusading against Ivy League non-revenue sports (wait aren't they all lulz) that have winter or spring break training trips in much better weather. And those poor student athletes aren't even on scholarship. Is nobody in the Ivy League thinking of the childrenes's edukation?!?!??!

I guess somebody took Hugh Freeze up on his offer to report any evidence of violations. Call him McGruff the Crime Dog...
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Brady Hoke had a great first||
Brady Hoke had a great first year and went way downhill from a program that was (in his first year) five years removed from playing a No. 1 vs No. 2 in the penultimate game. John Beilein took a program that hadn't been to the tournament since sanctions and went to the elite eight in back-to-back years, playing a competitive national championship the year before.
|17 weeks 14 hours ago||I think you are getting at||
I think you are getting at the difference in colloquial uses of "crazy." Just because Harbaugh (or many other elite and non-elite coaches) is obsessive about football and winning does not make him out of control or unable to be rational/calculating. I suppose it is easy to mistake exuberance (or enthusiasm unknown to mankind as the case may be) with a lack of inhibition, but that clearly isn't the case with Harbaugh or most other elite coaching performers.

Did J Leman and Ricky Stanzi just make post-grad transfers? USA! USA!
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Maybe the BSU player taking||
Maybe the BSU player taking five steps has been watching too much LeBron James. LeBron seems to cradle the ball to his body like a running back and take several steps every drive. Sometimes he even gives out a bonus stiff arm to the nearest defender.

Was the assignment to write "MBB vs Nebraska open thread" 100 times on the (chalk) board?

He's been a chatterbox since Valenti got him and H. R. Puffenstuff fired from their coordinator jobs at Michigan State.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||If you are going to do this||
If you are going to do this again, perhaps a different scoring methodology would make sense. Instead of 1st-4th (with ties allowed) perhaps a five-item scale (hey, it works for evaluating recruits!) for how close or far each service was, and give points on a curve. The top grade could be dead on, and (say) eight points, while a completely inaccurate prediction (like a top-100 who isn't injured but never sees the field and transfers to DIII) would be either zero or a small magnitude negative. This approach allows multiple sites to be rewarded if they were close but not tied, while punishing (in score, at least) those that completely whiffed.

Many collegiate teams go to warmer weather for winter or spring break training trips. The difference with this is that it sounds like Harbaugh will use it to reach out to local/regional recruits. Sounds like an outstanding idea, especially as a way to build interest for satellite camps over the summer...
