"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Maybe I should ask him if he's going to do it eventually. Would be fun to watch.

|27 weeks 3 days ago||Semantics can matter||
Neither you or your wife are likey to offend the other with your semantic choice in that analogy. By contrast, Hatch could be somewhat hurt by coarsley worded proclamations about his future, in the very unlikely (but again possible) event that he makes his way here.
Everyone here is intelligent enough to construct a less potentially offensive statement. I question why it is objectionable to ask that he spend an ounce of strength to do so.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Excellent!||
I'll see myself out.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||"almost certainly" vs "no chance"||
"almost certainly" (as you said) vs "no chance." That's what warrants the venom. Big difference. He is unable to see or acknowledge it. Do you really think this would have blown up if he had taken the time to properly qualify his remarks as opposed to dismissing curtly a slim possibility as not possible? Probably not.
It is simply impossible for him to know what the future holds for Hatch. I don't know why some people can't admit error.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||No one's saying you aren't being realistic||
No one's saying you aren't being realistic. At least I'm not. If you had said it's highly, highly, highly unlikely that Hatch ever starts, fine. In fact, I tend to agree.
But it's unreasonable for you to claim that you know with 100% certainty he won't start a single game ever over the next five years. You simply can't make that claim until the rules or Beiline make him ineligible. You said no chance. No chance is wrong.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||You still can't predict the future with 100% accuracy||
You still can't predict the future with 100% accuracy. Saying zero chance implies that you can. You're discounting several highly, highly unlikely but nevertheless extant possibilities from EVER happening. At this point and until he gets medicaled, sorry, you just don't know for sure.
Also, you're not protecting anyone by taking this position. You're just being negative.

"I had been eroded in the presence of the sun, and was glad for it, but now that place was getting smaller and farther all the time.
We were an outbound comet, hoping, waiting for the next opportunity to feel the stellar wind blow."
Beautiful. Thanks to you and your staff for your stellar work over the season.
'til the nex trip around the sun, smooth sailing to all.

I wait for this post every year.

The first one.

I think it just includes Burke assists, some of which included Burks.

And then missed one to go 11-12.

This is awesome. I'm actually in two bowl pick-em pools, and I'm pitting basically this list against the picks I made before this came out. Me against math!

|1 year 6 weeks ago||Yeah, that is a problem||
Hopefully Gardner figures out he needs to just eat it sometimes. He does that a lot and it had the same result in the 2011 spring game, I think. I think MSU's defense would be the next defense that might really key on that move.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Gardner is terrifying for opponents,||
Gardner is terrifying for opponents, but they are not fooled by his tendency to blindly spin away from pressure. It proved to be especially costly on his mistake in the endzone. But hopefully we've seen the last of a defensive line that can make him pay for it.

This is probably my favorite moment from the game, to be honest.

It's about quality of life following retirement from the NFL. compare the rates of dementia in NFL players to those rates for horseback riding, bike riding, and swimming. I suspect ex-NFL rate is much, much higher. So you may be less likely to die, but way more likely to be mentally impaired. That trade off bears exploration and discussion, no?
