Remember when this message board used to be great?
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah||
I can't say I'm surprised. Sure, UConn played us close, but have we all forgotten the absurdity that was blowing your final two timeouts consecutively before a 4th and 30 attempt instead of keeping both timeouts and trying for a stop on defense (either after a 4th down conversion try or a punt)? I was flabberghasted when that happened. That was some serious Andy Reid game management ish right there.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||I like your enthusiasm||
I like your enthusiasm but Florida "sucks right now" is a bit extreme - particularly given our 4 point squeaker over Akron - and there is nothing to suggest Alabama is going to be hit with anything other than a stern warning.
Don't jinx it.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Hoboken, New Jersey||
Would someone who can please add "Village Poorhouse" in Hoboken, New Jersey. It is where the North Jersey Alumni Association is going to be holding their game watching events this fall. I would do it myself but I don't think I can (as per the map) nor do I know how to.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks||
Thanks. Yes, I had forgotten about good ol' WOLV-TV. I'm just assuming that these days football, basketball, hockey, baseball and softball are all off limits for live student broadcasting thanks to BIG B1G.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Turco Video||
I'm just assuming that Turco video is being narrated by the WCBN announcers?
Oh to be young and able to go to Michigan sporting events for free under the guise of "broadcasting" again.
|27 weeks 22 hours 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.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Rave Adult||
Ahhh, rave adult. Do they make those? If so, I imagine they are terrible.
|28 weeks 2 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.
|32 weeks 3 days 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.
|34 weeks 17 hours 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.
|34 weeks 19 hours 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."
|34 weeks 1 day 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.
|34 weeks 1 day 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!"
|34 weeks 1 day 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.
|34 weeks 2 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.
|34 weeks 3 days 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
|34 weeks 3 days 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.
|34 weeks 3 days 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.

Beyonce shit the house down!
|35 weeks 11 hours ago||I don't know||
I don't know, I think Spike Albrecht is about as studly as it gets.
|35 weeks 1 day 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.
|35 weeks 3 days 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.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Wait||
Don't you mean the America [Fuck yeah!] 12? Or have been misunderstanding this whole conference realignment thing?

Shoutout to Tim the Enchanter!
|37 weeks 2 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.
|38 weeks 1 day 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
|38 weeks 2 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.
|38 weeks 3 days 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.
|38 weeks 3 days 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.
