Juwan is the best. Seriously hoping he is among the top 6 most beloved Michigan stars being unveiled on the board these days
|1 week 4 days ago||2 bests and a worst||
2 bests from the 2011 OSU game: Denard's 41-yard TD in the first quarter, and Courtney Avery's interception to end it.
1 worst from the misery of 2014: Gary Nova sidestepping Frank Clark's unblocked rush and throwing a touchdown at the end of the first half. Emblamatic of how we could have been a better team, but nonetheless managed to lose consistently.

Mark Hamill in Star Wars. Every time I see that I wonder how a multimillion dollar franchise got of the ground with him as the lead

He's a horrible actor, but was also good in Speed (minus a few lines toward the end)

Disagree. JLaw is compelling. The problem is the the casting of the two love interests. The guy who plays Gale is soggy cardboard. The guy who plays Peeta is even worse, and reminds me of Miley Cyrus's sulky brother Jackson in the Hannah Montana series.

Awful. My heart sinks when I read about news like this. My sympathies are with their respective families and teammates.

The Rising and Devils and Dust are as good as almost any other back-to-back run -- by anybody -- in the new millennium. They still might not be as good as the '70s stuff, and there isn't a third before or after it to, but an epic pair in my book.

Pink Floyd's best run could equally have been WYWH, Animals, and the Wall. Throw in Dark Side of the Moon and the list of comparable 4-album runs gets very, very short.

And in isolation, that (Pantone 108C) doesn't look like highlighter yellow. Was that (the highlighter) the from previous apparel contract?

So Jordan is giving us PMS7406. What did Addidas use? Did colors have numbers back in the dinosaur days of Bo and Harbaugh-the-QB? If so, what was it?

Yeah I skim through a good portion of it, but I find it a very useful read. Also, here it is on June 21, my kids got out of school a week ago, and we've got preseason-like substance sizzling on the transom (like a mixed metaphor on a hot day.) Perhaps it's starting early this year? Either way, yay.
[Edit: PS -- the Smoothitron cracks me up. Bravo there]

Ace's Ohio strategy looks pretty stout in the rearview. But you did grab Martell at P, and given his national award (/s), that could be the difference.

Loving this thread, because it's equal parts "Man, I've got to watch that" and "Holy crap the people here have no taste."

-- and this would never happen , but it would be awesome if it did -- how about relegation/promotion within the NCAA?
13th place in the B1G? down to the MAC you go!
|12 weeks 4 days ago||ex post cards for flopping||
I think it would be feasible to award yellow for replay-apparent flops, and even red cards for the most egregious (and game-changing) embellishments. The consequence of these could include disqualificaiton from the next match (just like accumulated yellows and reds induce within most league and tournament settings). It would also create more post-match scrutiny of flopping behavior, and bring a little shame to the worst offenders (assuming they have any).

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.

|23 weeks 17 hours ago||I hate the Beilein-hate on||
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.

Ivy League runner-up in serious consideration for an at-large? I actually hope so, but I'll, uh, eat a lemon if it happens this year.
