the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

Things that are being pointed out by experts/reporters on cnn/news sources. They also have department store survellaince and news footage that is aiding in identifying a POSSIBLE supsect (seen dropping the bomb, from what is being reported). CNN is backtracking and saying they have identified a suspect on film, or rather identified an indivual, but have not confirmed who that person is at this point. Again, 5PM PRESS CONFERENCE, stay tuned.
Again, I agree it's hard to assume anything from that photo. It was just an unusual reaction from that one individual the moment it went off and everyone else is going down, holding their ears.

This and others in this series are part of the possible identification of a suspect:
EDIT: seems to be confusion on whether a suspect has just been identified or actually arrested. good news either way. 5pm press conference.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||With the likes of Brian and||
With the likes of Brian and this blog elevating my fandom into a well-informed obsession, it makes all of this more personal. What I mean is, I'm not upset about the loss for me, the fan. We follow these teams so closely and really get to know the players and coaches. My disappointment is for them and all of their hard work to only come so close to their dream. This team will never be forgotten and has left a special legacy for every team that follows. I feel like there was something symbolic with having Webber there, the face of the lows experienced the last 20 years.
This team, I think, finally repaired those wounds. Shall it not fall on blind eyes that next year a banner will be hung in the rafters at Crisler, a Regional Championship/Final Four banner, the exact one that was taken down in the wake of the scandal. This team shouldered the burden of replacing what's been missing in so many ways.

BTN has been heavy on Mich hoops all week and has also shown the episode of "big ten's greatest seasons" featuring the 88-89 hoops season (showcasing the league as a whole). I certainly remember the NBA talent our championship team featured and how good Illinois was that year. What I did not remember (I was 10 or so at the time), is that it was Indiana who won the Big Ten that year and that Iowa was the preseason #1 team in the country. Wow. I think they mention Michigan had 7 future NBA players on that title team, with 4 first round picks? Loaded.

...but, Lebron James, Kevin Durant, et al are not your grandfather's professional basketball player.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||So what do people think?||
At what level do you think she could compete with men? I think she'd be a decent HS boys basketball player, bordering on good at that level (in your average high school conference). Thoughts?
Cool Starry Bra: I worked with a girl out of college who played soccer at Indiana, so a good athlete in her own right. She honestly thought Lisa Leslie (the best in the wnba at the time) could compete with Shaq, she lost her mind and refused to discuss it, she was that adament. The great thing was, it was the week after Anika played in that PGA event and really struggled, and if there was ever a sport where the physical difference might, just might be mitigated a little, it's golf.
Understand I have great respect for these women athletes and am well aware that Griner and NCAA d1 players would run me out of the gym.

Oline, unkowns at the skill positions, it's all mostly been covered. I'd love to see Bellomy look sharp, confident and putting a little more zip on the ball (I know he's never going to be Brett Favre). Hoke alluded to him maybe not being 100% in that nebraska mess. The kid was a 3 star committed to a big ten school before UM offered, so there is/was some talent there, hope to see him take steps forward.

Sam Webb just tweeted that he is "hearing it was Michigan's choice and did not leave the door open for a Dawson-like return"
As mentioned, better now than this time next year. I can't imagine the staff will have a hard time finding a quality OL to fill the spot (perhaps with lower cieling, but quality nonetheless).
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Why I'm not too worried he'll||
Why I'm not too worried he'll find a spot, somewhere, eventually: the reports are not shocking thus far, they sound a lot like they are about a guy who has never played the position he is now working out against NFL level talent against. The few highlights above where he "dropped" passes, well they were shitty passes. He is fighting an injury that causes numbness in one of his hands, one of only two hands he currently uses to try and catch the ball...again, something he has never had to do even when healthy. He is fast, but that alone of course does not mean much, he is fast and knows how to run with the football in his hands. He follows/sets up blockers well, finds creases and can cut at full speed (this was the catalyst for Devin Gardner telling him, "you're the best football player i've ever seen"). He is a zero-risk draftee in terms of character.
I'm holding out some judgement until the game on Saturday. Not necessarily to see how he performs, but more so to see how he is used. This may give some indication as to how teams see him in the NFL, because we know and they know he is not a pure WR prospect.
In or out of professional football, the young man has a bright future.

Most importantly, how do we encapsulate this whole thing into a Halloween costume?

...who in the living hell perpetrates something like this? Does the obvious answer of "nobody" nulify his claim that he was a victim? That's a Sawyer-esque long con, but for what gain? Simply to embarass him? No financial reason or other reason? Fascinating, this whole thing is just beyond fascinating.
EDIT: mildly disregard, I did not read the entire thing carefully enough, thus not processing Tuiasosopo's involvement.

Meinke (sp?) or another AA area writer clarified regarding that, he is heading to CT Thursday for a short trip. A ceremony for the Walter Camp AA team.

We think this will be streamed by mgoblue.com or some other outlet? (although we will quickly know via twitter and the like)
I've moved from the "i'd be shocked if he came back" to the "i'd be surprised, but not shocked..." camp. Seems like a kid who loves college, has done all of his homework on the decision, including, I assume, talking to the likes of Jake Long and others who may have both stayed and come out early. Taylor seems like a mature young man who can grasp the notion of "you get a 2nd chance at a senior year in college and all it entails, but then that's it, never again can you have this experience".
He'll be missed if he leaves, but nothing but deep gratitude can be felt for the years he gave the team and university.

Anyone have luck finding a live stream? The ESPN is blacked out in my area.

"Here we are, face to face...a couple of silver spoons..." Seriously? Eddie Toys? The little train in the house they rode on? Erin fing Gray? Also, Alfonso Riberio (sp?) aka Carlton from Fresh Prince was on it (learned he had Dyslexia in a "special" episode starring Bruce Jenner), as was Jason Bateman. Classic 80's sitcom, back when in the glory days of TV sitcom theme songs.

Couple Michigan Insider retweets today mentioned Sam had a gut feeling regarding David Dawson and D Green. Anyone hear this?

Will do. He was bummed after our initial search attempt came up empty the day after the game, so he'll be quite surprised.

Great thought, I'll try and get in touch with him to a) make sure he's cool with the usage (I worked at Getty a few years ago, so I can appreciate his ownership of the images) and b) get a tigher one.

Not sure how I missed the team huddle one on umhoops. Love it.
MERRY CHRISTMAS MR. POTTER! Y'all complete me. Thanks from a fellow die hard, who was introduced to the maize n' blue by his dad about 30 years ago. Means a lot, and I know many of you know exactly what thats like.

Yep, nailed it. Beautiful, can't thank you enough. He is the bald one, with glasses (akin to Costanza), without his legs crossed (at least that you can see.

Great suggestions on contacting the people you named. Thank you for the assistance. I have googled like hell. Getty Images has a panaromic from opposite the student section, but from rather far away, it's currently the go to if I don't find one where he is more discernable.
Thanks again and great stuff to know for future photo hunts.
EDIT: Man, if he takes the one of Stauskus giving the "ultimate warrior flex" after hitting a 3 about 1 second later, that would have been it.
