just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.

|2 weeks 4 days ago||I really hope||
I really hope Louis Freeh files a frivolous claim notice against them so that all his legal bills are paid by these idiots. The Paternos look like raving lunatics suing everyone who doesn't agree with their clearly biased opinion on the matter. This has gone beyond simple "defending your father's honor" at this point.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Rave Adult||
Ahhh, rave adult. Do they make those? If so, I imagine they are terrible.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Very Rembert Explains||
Very Rembert Explains of you. Two thumbs way up.
It's a really a shame that the NCAA's draconian rulebook prevents Jay from reaping the millions he's clearly about to earn from his rap career while simultaneously participating as a scholarship D-I football player. Breaks your heart that he's forced to choose which lucrative venture he'll pursue as opposed to exposing us to the many talents of this true renaissance man.
|8 weeks 9 hours ago||Krislov was a great prof||
Had Marvin Krislov for a great law class (focusing on political jurisprudence) while I was an undergrad at UofM. Incredibly smart guy. I credit that class to motivating me to become an attorney. I think he'd make for a great president - though, Mary Sue is surely a very tough act to follow.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I didn't say it justified it.||
I think you're misconstruing what I said. I didn't say it justified it, just that it seemed to go beyond setting fires after your actual school lost the national title. To me, something termed a bomb seems more dangerous but I have never made one - "works" or otherwise - so I can't really speak on that front. I also think the fact that it was to celebrate a loss by your rival, one that you weren't even involved in and were in no direct way affected by, pushed this whole concept to another level.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I normally agree||
I normally agree, but I felt this really pushed the envelope and set a new high watermark for the concepts of "Spartyno!" and "Little Brother."
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Perhaps I should've said VERY poor man's||
I did not mean to imply anything beyond the fact that Mitch will play a style similar to Duncan's but at a - at best - 14-15 ppg, 9-10 rpg, 3 apg, 1.5 bpg, 1 spg clip with less efficient defense. As opposed to Duncan's tremendous post D and 24 ppg, 11-12 rpg, 4 apg, 3 bpg, 1 spg prime.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Also my first thought||
My first thought was also - "Hey, Spike Albrecht was the last guy who we had to "battle" with App State for! That seemed to work out!"
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Poor Man's Tim Duncan||
Not as solid defensively, but could be down the road. Very active and disruptive.
Offensively, aside from the obvious bank shot repoitoire he can run the floor in transition and even run the point on it with crisp passing and good awareness of spacing, excellent court-vision. Has range out to a good distance for a big guy. Lacking in Duncan's post-game at this time which is likely the main fault with the comparison.
Solid rebounder, though doubtful he will ever be a league leader or close, more like a 9-10 guy.
I think poor man's Duncan is more accurate than Love or David Lee who are just white guys who are similar build and not slow and plodding. I think those comparisons are lazy. Love is a much better rebounder than McGary and shares almost nothing in common with him. His defensive game is totally different - McGary will be a much better defender in the NBA - and Love has range that McGary will never have. Lee is also a much better rebounder and a terrible defender who isn't nearly as skilled offensively as McGary.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Great piece||
Might be your best writing so far. Thanks. Made me feel a little better about the loss. You're dead on about the disappointment FOR these guys. It'd be impossible to be disappointed in them.
|10 weeks 2 hours ago||Also||
Also, Spencer Hall sucks. I know that is an unpopular opinion around the higher ups, but beyond re tweeting Rembert his twitter feed is just B1G trolling. You're making App State jokes after we hosed your team repeatedly in everything the last ten years? Eff off. #bitter
|10 weeks 10 hours ago||Ha||
Ha, Well, when we lose, I'll still be pretty glad you were right about that game and not right about the VCU, Kansas, Florida, or Syracuse games.
|10 weeks 14 hours ago||Alternatively||
Alternatively, feel free to riot vigorously in your own dorm/apartment/house. If you must destroy property in excitement, you are encouraged to throw a baseball through the television or chuck a keg through some drywall.

I don't know, I think Spike Albrecht is about as studly as it gets.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Too hippie?||
You eliminate a place for Brian for being too hippie? Have you seen Brian's hair? I don't necessarily believe Brian subscribes to their worldview, but I imagine he respects that at least they have an ethos.
|11 weeks 13 hours ago||Probably just the semantics police at work||
Probably just the semantics police at work - presumably some guy, somewhere could create an All-American list and leave Trey Burke off of it. That person is an ignoramus - and probably has created his list via a Bleacher Report slideshow - but I'm assuming he exists somewhere.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Wait||
Don't you mean the America [Fuck yeah!] 12? Or have been misunderstanding this whole conference realignment thing?

|12 weeks 6 days ago||So revenue sharing?||
If you are arguing for revenue sharing then you can kiss all but basketball and whatever number of title ix women's sports needed to balance that goodbye. Revenue sharing would cripple an athletic department by taking the money and splitting it before even accounting for the profit as the department as a whole. Even with an AD making $100k a year, that's what happens. I'd be interested to see a well thought out proposal that adequately demonstrates the likely economic impact it has.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan 78 - PSU 52||
Seth, can't we just jump ahead to guess the score of the Wisco game? I keed I keed. Kinda.
Michigan 78 - PSU 52
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Why?||
Why do they have to hide the names of the accused? These guys - though they may be young - are adults in the eyes of the law. There's nothing that prevents the station - terrible though the reporting may be - ethically or otherwise from printing information from a no longer confidential document. If you want to argue that people shouldn't have their information disclosed until charges are officially pressed and arrest is made, that is fine, but this information is made public all the time. If these guys committed rape, I don't care if they're 18 years old, they know that is wrong and deserve whatever shame comes with this.
|14 weeks 9 hours ago||I defer to the resident Wahoo||
I will defer to the resident Wahoo as my impressions were based on only a handful of games. Though I do think from that limited viewing I am somewhat confident in my assertion that they'd be a matchup problem for us. I also am a huge Shane Larkin fan rather inexplicably after watching those few games.
|14 weeks 9 hours ago||Tend to agree||
I tend to agree - though it really has no bearing on the original commenter's point - that this was not Burke's worst game. I think 6 turnovers against a woeful Penn State squad fits that bill.
|14 weeks 13 hours ago||Miami?||
I would be petrified of playing Miami in the Sweet 16. To me, they look like a much better team than Duke - who they killed at home and lost to by the slimmest of margins during Ryan Kelly's greatest game this year by a human. They are athletic and a matchup nightmare offensively - I would frankly rather be in a bracket with Indiana or Florida than Miami.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Not defending A&M||
I don't think that plan is why Swope has made up ground. I have a hard time believing that a February 26th message board post proximately caused Swope's total to swell on March 7th. That said, if someone here knows how to rig this thing - do it for Denard.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||You are bad at MGoBlog.||
Edit: this was previously reply to some mouthbreather who left an idiotic comment. Disregard.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Seth||
Seth if you post the IU guess the score right now, I swear on all that is holy....
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Yes!||
Finally. Our long, regional nightmare is over.
|15 weeks 13 hours ago||Yes||
Yes - or at the very least, increased playing time. The book on Stauskas from a defensive standpoint is simple - take him baseline. He lets players take him left (offensive player's right) with such ease it's a wonder that teams don't do it more often. It happened in his few minutes against MSU and all day against Penn State.
This is not to say that Stauskas isn't a valuable player - he is. However, I think Levert - on a team that is extremely efficient offensively and mediocre defensively - is much more valuable to this team. His offensive game isn't nearly as good as Stauskas' but the gap between their defensive play is larger.
