|1 day 50 min ago||B1G dichotomy||
between douchenozzles (Izzo, Crean, Ryan) and gentlemen (Miles, McCaffrey, Beilein). Where do the others fall on this bimodal spectrum?
|1 day 55 min ago||There was one play||
in the Super Bowl where Doug Baldwin completely abused Bailey on an out-and-up that wasnt even all that smooth. Bailey's had a great career, but he's not even close to what he was.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Sure||
But only if there are exactly 99.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Nooice||
Not gonna lie, at first I was wondering why the NCAA was dabbling in rules regarding dropped food.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Huh||
It's nice to see the word "chode" survived the decade.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Yeah, no||
This isn't the pros. Play to win.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Unborn||
My parents did get married that year, though.
|2 days 16 hours ago||This is ludicrous||
Rice is just truck-sticking everyone in his way with the ball tucked, and it's impossible to defend with this officiating.
|2 days 16 hours ago||THE FUCK||
I don't care that we're up over 20, that is NOT a continuation, fuckers.
|2 days 16 hours ago||whut||
This game has gotten to the point where the talking heads are SINGING OLD EMINEM. 'Nuff said.
|2 days 17 hours ago||whut||
Groce throwing up the handgina.
|2 days 17 hours ago||BWAHAHAHA||
Talking heads are calling our shots now.
And as I type this, we unleash even more hell. I cackle.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Morgan||
Starting aggressive on both sides.
Defensive rebounding is going to be key.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Meh||
I think it's a bit more blueiculous than rediculous.
|4 days 22 hours ago||Hah||
Still not as lazy as unhelpful inane criticism.

what am i reading
|5 days 17 hours ago||Welp||
Officials were pretty good so far, so they've decided to save the suck for the endgame phase.
|5 days 18 hours ago||Good question||
More than they care about preseason rankings, at least.
|6 days 9 hours ago||All the crazies are coming out||
I swear, I don't even know how to handle the "Morris for starter" loonies. I mean, you watched the bowl game, right? And you watched the second half of the season where Gardner played hurt, right? And yet you still think it's even close? And are you SERIOUSLY saying that Gardner's ONLY advantage over the other QBs is/was knowledge of the offense?
It's like trying to explain dividing by zero. You either get it or you just don't.
Also, citing a dude (Wilson) who runs around like a headless chicken EVEN MORE than Gardner does, regardless of the fact that he's excellent at it, is a little funny.

will be if that coroner still has a job tomorrow.

In the world of sports blogs, it's commonly known as "FJM-style takedown." SBNation, KissingSuzyKolber, etc. do this fairly frequently.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Not the University's problem||
As BiSB pointed out, we only knew ANY of the details because they were leaked. The university is not responsible for media whoring and defamation (it's possible Gibbons might have a future lawsuit) unless their own personnel leaked withheld information...in which case the offender should probably lose their job.
The university CAN'T care about public opinion in these cases, because then celebrity determines outcome. Would you rather they do nothing?
|1 week 19 hours ago||Lots of folks don't understand legal basics||
When you enter something like an institute of learning, you DO in fact leave your constitutional rights at the door...or at least have them restricted further. We learned this the first day of practical law in high school.
As Section 1 has pointed out with the Duke case, the court of public opinion means jack shit to savvy hiring managers. I partly blame my parents' generation for scaring us into thinking a single blemish ruins our lives forever. I guess the one good thing to come from corporate greed is that they don't care if you're Charles Manson if you can make them money and avoid future PR disasters.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Huh||
If I still lived in Michigan, I'd be inclined to drop $1150 if a bar was part of the deal. That's a very pretty piece of equipment.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Bahahaha||
You'll have a hard time finding hiring managers who either A) care or B) willingly turn down the best candidate for the job because some HR nitwit has a sensitive bladder. Don't act as if the hiring process is run by prudes who drop their shipments at the first sign of an Imperial cruiser
tl;dr: Plenty of people will hire folks who aren't squeaky-clean nobodies...including expellees.
|1 week 20 hours ago||I hear you||
Thomas Jefferson must be rolling his grave. He was probably hoping the press wouldn't degenerate into the disingenuous click-baiting freakshow it's largely become. Sometimes I wonder what the media would be like if all journalistic entities were non-profits.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Why is this mistake made so often?||
He was expelled for sexual misconduct, not rape, and those records may very well be sealed. He's not on any official lists. The arrest is probably going on his record unless it's expunged, but these distinctions are very, very important.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Discretion||
The university has a much freer reign to hand out university-related punishments with a stricter set of rules than federal law. This is the case for pretty much EVERY institution of learning in the country, and perhaps on the planet.
You went to high school, right? You can get expelled in all sorts of ways without breaking the law. Similar principles apply here.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Speak for yourself||
Shit like this story is highlighted because it draws attention. What you don't see are the millions of people doing things that aren't fucked up.
We're not all fucked-up people. We're imperfect. And that's okay. We deal with it by banding together to un-fuck the world, because we're all we've got.
|1 week 1 day ago||My takeaway||
"Bernard Robinson" might be the cutest six-year-old garbled version of the moniker pertaining to a recently departed #16.
