And all the nonsense... But if you read the quotes from MM's father, it sure makes one wonder where a lot of the Michigan Media (if you will) were going with this thing.
Bottom line, he'd been green for months, and there didn't seem to be much ambiguity or wavering. And the even bottomer line, nice to move on.

much of the conjecture in this thread, at least with respect to PED's and some other illicit substances, is that the B10 did, in fact, test everyone on the travelling roster for the B10 Title game (including Bullough)...That was how Spence got his 3-game suspension for, as he essentially put it, "getting slipped a micky!"

2-10 for his career when coaching against MSU? If Narduzzi was smart, he'd have quipped, "Not at all, in fact you could probably get something out of this too..."
|11 weeks 1 day ago||According to the police report...||
and multiple first-hand accounts Lewan's actions were as follows:
Lewan attempted to contact the alleged victim, when in front of multiple witnesses (including teammates of his) he accosted a group of women, which he believed contained the alleged, while saying, "is this the girl, is this the girl?" And then making a crude and tasteless comment after finding out that the alleged wasn't in the group.
Lewan, while speaking to a friend of the alleged victim's, asked if the alleged intended to press charges, and warned that if she did, he'd rape her because Gibbons didn't.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||You're wrong both with||
You're wrong both with respect to what I initially asserted, and Lewan's role in the incident. Taylor Lewan did, in fact, attempt to contact the victim; but mistakenly contacted the victim's friend (who apparently was in possession of her (the victim's) phone), and made that rather disgusting threat. The friend relayed, to police, the nature of that threat, which was also subsequently corroborated by some of Lewan's own teammates - at least one of which, also happened to be a friend of the alleged victim. Lewan was then ordered to not have any further contact with the parties in question.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Question for the Section...||
Ignoring Gibbons and his situation for a moment, since I'd agree, ultimately we have no idea what occurred on the night in question...How do folks rationalize supporting Taylor Lewan?
Because in Lewan's case, we do know a few details...He did attempt to contact the alleged victim, (instead got her friend) as there was a record of the call...That person asserts that he threatened the alleged victim (believing it was her he was speaking with)...We know multiple teammates of Lewan's corroborated the friend's account.
That was always the most troubling element of the story, from my perspective...At least in terms of the things we can essentially prove actually occurred.

Had the 4 team field as: FSU, Auburn, 'Bama and MSU. And the final pre-bowl BCS rankings also happened to be in that order - not that that would be determinative. That said, I think that's most likely how the field would have rounded out.

We have a winner!
Well put, blueblueblue.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||That's not grounded in reality...||
Here's the bottom line on that game: 1 of the pass interferences was absolutely correct; the 1 defensive holding was absolutely correct; 1 of the pass interferences was a 50/50 call; and 2 of them were absolutely poor calls - and there isn't a lot of wiggle room on that. The announcers (ND's crew) saw/said it, Mike Perreira tweeted about it, analysts commented on it ex post facto - and they were all in agreement - there were some really bad calls against MSU that day...It is what it is, and what it is in this case, is that MSU was a bad call (or suspect play call on the wr reverse toss) away from probably playing for a national title...
Don't worry, you won't self-immolate if you admit it...

It very well may be true.

|19 weeks 2 days ago||The real kicker...||
is that, according to the NCAA Rulebook , you can make a pretty strong argument, that by virtue of Braxton MIller leaving the team area, and joining into the fracas, and due to the fact that he wasn't sanctioned in the game itself, he should have received further punishment.
Bottom line, for a league that LOVES to trumpet how different it is from the other BCS Conferences (particularly the SEC) Delany and company have really dropped the ball on this one...And whenyou factor in the Tat 5...Well, best case it looks sketchy, worst case, abjectly hypocritical.

and not assuming that that man is yelling, "There's always money in the banana stand!!!"
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Perhaps not a popular assertion around here...||
But today's game had the feel of MSU going 2-0 against us in 2013. You could see it in Nebraska's defensive approach, and perhaps as importantly, you could see it in Devin Gardner's eyes. At the slightest appearance of pressure, his vision focused immediately and myopically on his immediate vicinity (as in, no longer down field). That was a gun-shy quarterback out there today, and frankly, I'm not altogether sure I blame him.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||I don't understand where this notion that...||
what Lewan did wasn't as bad (simply in terms of the helmet twist) as Gholston's. I've watched both about a half dozen times now, and frankly, I think both are equally reprehensible and "violent".
I'm also part of the crowd that doesn't think he should be suspended for that action, even when taken within the larger context of what was a pretty douchey game from Lewan. I also find it absolutely laughable that some morons on here would actually defend his actions by citing the 2011 game. Seriously? If that was the case, or a legitimate rationale at all (it isn't), then last year was the occasion to "make your statement"...You know, when the guy that perpetrated most of the questionable 2011 plays from MSU was still on the god damn field!!! What a joke.
There's no question that Lewan has a very suspect reputation around the conference, and that he loves to get his paws inside the face masks of opposing d-linemen...There's also some pretty good youtube footage floating around the internets, with him engaging in a few other suspect activities (including a chest stomp against IU) that I'm surprised didn't garner more attention.

In that ND game, at least 3 of the PI calls against MSU were in fact, terrible calls.

|1 year 4 weeks ago||Threads like these are lovely attempts||
to rationalize a suspect result. Bottom line, this loss has less to do with legitmizing a potential conditioning concern; and more to do with the fact that the likelihood of seeing a similarly situated/talented team in round 2, and a 1 seed directly after that, just increased dramatically.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||I know who won't be!||
|1 year 7 weeks ago||To be honest,||
I think they're essentially right. My initial reaction was similar to Vitale's...But later in the broadcast, ESPN put both "groinings" on back to back; and in my opinion - Zeller was executing a little gamesmanship 101.
Just too much evidence works against Zeller...His hand is on the inside of Nix', as such, if Nix had originated the force, Zeller's hand/arm wouldn't follow it to the target, certainly not simultaneously. And check our Nix' hand/arm, it's completely limp at the onset, and the way the wrist bends initially suggests that it's being pulled, imo. And while some folks like to compliment the "acting job" Zeller executed, ESPN had a great baseline look (behind the play) and the shocked look Nix gives TV Teddy right after it happened, it was all, "What the hell is this moron trying to pull!"
The most interesting aspect, imo, is that I was convinced that the first incident was simply a basketball play, wrong place wrong time...Now I'm less certain.
