Syracuse, which will draw more viewers to BTN than any Rutgers game ever has/will.

At LB, at least.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||OTOH||
Our highest ranking of the year, right? Quibble over whether it is a slot or two too low, but feel good about a season that ended on the upswing.

But toiling in the D-League for bus money if they are off by just a couple slots
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Late first vs. early second||
Is it still the case that the first round = guaranteed money, while second rounders have to compete for a roster spot to make their payday? It's a risky thing, then, to be slightly underdeveloped (physically) and on the cusp of the two rounds. Both guys can move into lottery contention if they return.
Memo to the Spurs: the guy you want is Walton, anyways.
[EDIT: see this article for some year old stats on the first-vs-second disparity]

Throughout all the changes, and the differences in what was being asked of him and what his teammates could and couldn't do, Irvin handled himself with utmost dignity. A team player and Michigan Man to the core. (And not many players go down as the leading scorers on multiple teams, either.)
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I'm not a draft scout but...||
...but what do those guys see in unproven teenage Europeans who played 6 mins/game in Spain, or erratic NCAA freshman who shot 24%? Maybe those guys have a better chance at being the next James Harden, but even that is like 2% vs. 1%. See Why a physical PG with a tremendous basketball IQ, and who can shoot and distribute well is not generating draft buzz beats the heck out of me.
It seems like Walton would be a good fit for the Spurs, which is a team I've always felt I should like more than I actually do. Put Walton on that roster, and all of that changes.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||yes but||
in the off chance they don't allow the hard stuff in the delivery room, do try to make sure you at least have a Vernors with you. You may very well need it.

"Coaches in yoga pants" struck me as a very unlikely trend. But Harbaugh is nothing if not unpredictable, so I was ready to roll with it.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Spurs||
I've been thinking that too-- that the Spurs would love to have him available at # 30 or what ever. I think sometimes there is a measure of unintentional collusion when someone without draft buzz comes on strong. Scouts don't want other teams that get in on a guy who could be a steal for then in the late first or early second. In short, no one has an interest in talking him up.

Way to go, Seth and the entire Seth family. Congrats!

A consultant is someone who borrows your watch and then tells you what time it is.
A clever one is one who figures out a way to sell it back to you.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Gedeon especially||
Gedeon went from perhaps the biggest question mark on the defense to leading one of hte best M defenses in modern memory in tackles (107) and TFL (15.5, tied with Peppers). Unlike other leading tackles on Bo's or Carr's great defenses, Gedeon had had unremarkable production up to his senior year: 60 tackles, 5.5 TFL spread out over the previous 3 years.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Even More Central Michigan||
Kicking out Staee would essentially render them a directional school. But "Central Michigan" is already taken. Given the geography, I propose "Even More Central Michigan".

Can't be serious. If Joe Buck is calling a game, and I couldn't mute it, I'd rather blast Muzak than have to listen to him.

App+1 for Thorne.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Hawthorne||
For Hawthorne, his unicorn moment could almost be boiled down to a single series in UTL I.
Right after Michigan opened the 4th quarter with a TD to cut ND's lead from 17 pts to 10, Hawthorne made all three stops (one assisted) in a 3-and-out, which game Michigan tha ball back with momentum enough for a third TD that cut the lead to 3 with 10 minutes still left.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Raiding the Nutmeg cabinet||
Quietly, Harbaugh has come to own Connecticut recruiting -- Black, Mason, Hawkins, and now (hopefully) this kid. The state isn't deep (that's probably half the total number of P5 recruits the state will produce this year), but I like what we're getting out of it.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||The opposite, actually. "We||
The opposite, actually. "We didn't execute" means "the coaches did everything right, but the players didn't follow directions." It is 100% throwing your players under the bus.

Big line they've got there. With 3 OL weighing in at 320+, can we stunt hell out them and get to Francois ?
|17 weeks 2 days ago||And Rutgers lost last night||
And Rutgers lost last night to (a pretty good) Seton Hall, so make it 11-2 for the Knights.

|17 weeks 4 days ago||My bad -- he didn't get best||
My bad -- he didn't get best so bad he 'went to the floor' -- just got way out of position. Still: pure intention there. Plus his sideline hissy fit is simply embarrassing. That's a good way to lose your teammates.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||I don't really see 'tangled||
I don't really see 'tangled up with him' there. Allen got beat so badly he went to the floor, and then intentionally brought down the other guy by hooking his leg into him. 'Indefinitely' doesn't mean 'permanently' but it does imply that Allen will have some time to think about what he did wrong.

I'm rooting for M to get Thompson-Robinson, just because I'm fascinated by the challenge of putting all those letters on the back of a uniform. Saltalamaccia (or Biakabatuka, for that matter) eat your heart out!
