Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

|18 hours 22 min ago||Sorry,||
but your example doesn't make any sense to me. I'm getting 10-1 from someone else when I bet MSU and you offer to make me an extra bet at 1-5? If you know someone who will bet you you can simply lay him the 10-1 odds. It seems like you're trying to make an anology with writing stock options, but that's doomed to fail.
I do think there could be a secondary market. If you bet Indiana at 500 - 1 and they make the final four, perhaps you would like to sell part of your action.

Didn't he say that he never spoke to Borges? His offer came after Borges apparently stopped recruiting. It stills seems like a very curious offer.

That's why they don't offer the other side.
|21 hours 4 min ago||You don't have to bet all of your gambling capital at once.||
Your equity in that bet would be ridiculously high. If you hedged by taking MSU on the money line in the individual games, you could probably guarantee yourself a profit. I don't think you would even need to hedge until after the sweet sixteen.
|21 hours 17 min ago||There are 150+ scholarship players in the Big Ten.||
Last year was the first time since 2007 that more than two of them left early for the draft. Three of those five were juniors.
|1 day 3 hours ago||I think that had little to do with his age||
and everything to do with him playing four years in college. That's what put him closer to his perceived ceiling.
|1 day 3 hours ago||Beilein's rotations tend to be short.||
He's using Irvin as the only backup at three positions this season and he's not getting a lot of minutes. I can't see how he'll be compelled to burn Wilson's redshirt to add depth in your most likely scenario. I'd bank on on 8-9 man rotations continuing to be the norm however the roster shakes out.
|1 day 19 hours ago||My two cents on the BCS||
When the computers were using margin of victory, they were worse. I'd prefer they leave the computers out of the equation if they are going to hamstring their formulas.

#2 Jordan Morgan
Walton has shown the most improvement since the early season. Both have become much more consistent. Their positions were the biggest question marks, too.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Check out the BPI.||
Four Big Ten teams are ahead of us, plus 11 loss OK St.
|2 days 23 hours ago||absolutely not||
We desperately needed a PG and picked up Spike first.
|3 days 13 min ago||Do you honestly believe||
that you were telling any of us something we didn't already know?
|3 days 19 min ago||Sometimes things just work out for the best.||
Without his transfer we don't have room to take LeVert. Also, "would have fit perfectly"? He did play two seasons for Beilein. In all likelihood, his role and minutes would have diminshed last season.

pg - Burke
sg - Stauskas
pf - Novak
c - Morgan
Apologies to Tim Hardaway, who would be my sixth man. Novak and Morgan aren't the most talented players at their positions, but they contributed the most to their teams and the program.

They're running a website whose success is based on having people read their writing. At that point, criticizing their execrable command of the English language is fair game. You would think they could put just a little effort in doing a better job. Instead they seem to take the tack that their poor writing is a badge of honor, shows they're pure football guys. Frankly, I've wondered sometimes whether they even read their own work.
|4 days 13 hours ago||With four new starters,||
this was supposed to be a rebuilding year.
|4 days 16 hours ago||It's just a one year extension.||
not a big commitment
|4 days 23 hours ago||Getting A+ prospects sounds good,||
but those trades aren't easy to make. I doubt the Tigers turned down any blockbuster offers for Scherzer.
|5 days 13 min ago||They might still have taken him.||
It just makes it less of a no-brainer for the Nationals. I don't think we know why the Tigers made the trade. Possible injury concerns make at least as much sense as saving money.
|5 days 2 hours ago||You've got me me beat then.||
I've never seen worse than these. The fake belts are an odd touch.
|6 days 16 hours ago||not worried at all||
Syracuse is neither a bigger program, nor should have a bigger budget. Beilein's age makes him a less attractive candidate in any case. If UNC or Duke need a new coach in a couple of years, I don't see them hire someone just a few years younger than Williams or K.
|6 days 16 hours ago||I can't find anything to criticize||
in what he said. He played four years for Fisher. He's certainly earned whatever opinion he has of his coaching ability. I find it very refreshing to have former players talk about how good our coaches are. It beats the hell out of them criticizing coaches they never played for and don't know much about.
|6 days 18 hours ago||We've had that "Fort mentality" for||
all but 3 of the last 40+ years. We can see that not having it didn't produce the greatest results.
|6 days 19 hours ago||I pretty much agree, except||
I think the Big Ten spot is between us and Wisc, whoever finishes better. Also Iowa State is more likely a threat to move up than Creighton.
|6 days 21 hours ago||Kaminsky is actually a lower usage player,||
if you consider possessions per game. No way the POY is a guy who sits 15 minutes a game.
|6 days 21 hours ago||I'll go out on a limb and predict||
that Izzo gets zero first or second place votes. It's a two man race with Bo Ryan likely third.
|1 week 14 min ago||I think we have much better||
than a slight shot at a two seed. Right now I think the last two are some combination of Michigan, Wisconsin, Syracuse or Virginia and I don't think there's any chance of both going to the ACC.
|1 week 4 hours ago||They also don't play||
PSU, Maryland and Rutgers. 100% Delany's fault.
|1 week 4 hours ago||Closest might be eliminating 2 to make 1||
Closest might be eliminating 2 to make 1 and 3 to make 2 free throws.

That incident with McQueary occured in 2001 and the DA was never notified. The complaint in 1998 was brought by a mother, but the DA declined to pursue it after a police investigation.
