- the red piping looks like some sort of camp lanyard;
- the mini-collar invokes asian semi-formal wear as you might expect to see on the hostess leading you to your table at a pretentious Chinese restaurant;
- no way the sleeve patch (which must be for the World Cup) should be larger than the logo crest

I remember when Keith Bostic -- an Ann Arborite like myself, from the same West Side neighborhood -- was drafted in 1983 by the Oilers, a new Buick (Olds?) showed up outside his parents' home. As a percentage of his first paycheck, it was probably much larger than a new Buick/Olds would be today, but I always dug that he gave back to his family first.

Sounds like the Russians want to build a giant sun-orbiting laser that can blast things out of the solar system with pinpoint accuracy. No, I do not think this is a good idea. Not even for a Bond flick.

Without that blantant cross-check by Beechem, SFA grabs or knocks away the rebound.

I hate the Beilein-hate on this site. Look, this team lost a potential lottery pick and a assist-to-turnover ratio wizard. They didn't lose a single game in which they were favored (unlike last year), and stole a handful in which they were an underdog. The personnel losses made this a rebuilding year, and the development of Donnal and Wagner, notwithstanding unevenness, has been outstanding. Certainly under-appreciated. I think Duncan Robinson will come back stronger and better under pressure. Irvin and Walton emerged as real leaders, and nailed plenty of big shots. The lack of production from Chatman, Wilson, and Dawkins is a little puzzling, but the book isn't closed on any of those guys. Throw in X and the big fellah, and Coach B'a biggest problem is distributing minutes, not conjuring up talent.

Baylor dude who made that steal and save in the last 20 seconds? He was out of bounds. Baylor got plenty of calls all afternoon. They have only themselves (and Yale's Makai Mason) to blame for their early departure.

Going by joint probability using Massey'a odds, there is an almost 2/3rds chance (actually, 64%) we win at least one of Maryland/Wisconsin/Iowa.

14-16 in the pairwise are no guarantee: both AHA and WCHA (another classic conference the big ten ruined) aren't represented above the cut-off. Add in the possibility of a below-the-line conference champ coming out of Hockey East, ECAC, or NCHC, and the 14-spot gets left out.

Coached my 10-yr old son's basketball team to a 29–36 loss but an excellent effort by the youngsters nonetheless. Came home to cook some steaks, which I washed down with a 2010 Côte du rhone by E. Guigal (ok), and then afterwards had a light pour of some Elmer T. Lee (excellent) with some salted caramel chocolate to tickle the taste buds. Wife is in Japan, but we're managing alright.

|18 weeks 21 hours ago||no intentional foul||
The initial part of hte play was a good clean trap -- they weren't trying to foul, and at least until the third BSU play came over, did not.
At that point, there is either:
A) a foul on BSU
B) a travel on EMU
or C) a jump ball that should have been called if nothing else was.
Since none of those was called, there is then -- when BSU has possession -- a small case for calling a foul on EMU, but a much bigger one for calling a travel on BSU.
Not calling anything is simply not an option.
I'm down with those refs getting suspended, so long as the suspension lasts all season.
