Petulant? You're going to have to break that one down for me, man. I'm from South Brooklyn.

I would say about 90% of my soccer knowledge comes from playing every iteration of FIFA from 2006-2012. The other 10% is probably a mix of Wikipedia, youth league, and espn soccer.

I knew a guy who switched from LSA computer science to general studies. He wanted to do computer games not just corporate coding so he mixed in art and design courses with programming. I have no idea what Horford's academic background is but the stereotype of GS majors is there. Can't help that JMO has 2 engineering degrees either.

Get an old copy of FIFA for your game console and play a couple seasons in manager mode. You learn pretty quickly about formations and strategies and how to put your players in positions so their strengths can shine. I played as Crystal Palace for a few years and Nathaniel Clyne was my best ball handler/passer so even though he is listed as a RB (right back) I played him as a CAM (center Attacking Mid) so I could utilize his skills.

Snyder also graduated with his BGS degree when he was 19 years old.
I was mocking somebody but it wasn't Horford.

The Governor also has an MBA and a JD so...
And you know what I meant when I used the word my.

William Tecumseh Sherman has shown up on mgoblog. I can now die a happy man.

He is leaving my basketball team.
How is anything I said personal? General Studies is a major at UM that is widely considered a crutch for athletes. I even mentioned an accomplishment of his outside of athletics. He wrote an article for HuffPo so I believe he has some interest in journalism. CMU has a journalism department.
My comment about his transfereing due to academics was pointed at mgobloggers who seem to think Horford is some super philosophical guy. People were actually perpetuating thoughts that he would transfer to an Ivy League school when the news broke he was leaving.
You could say my post was negatively directed towards the General Studies Department.

I hear you man. Zen Jon was as much an mgoblog creation as Llyod Brady was.
|19 hours 13 min ago||I know Horford never said it||
I know Horford never said it was academic but some posters were saying that they wouldn't be surprised if he ended up at an Ivy League school.
|19 hours 30 min ago||But I thought he was||
But I thought he was transferring for academic reasons because he is so insightful. He is published in HuffPo for cyring out loud. Then I remembered, General Studies. I still think he ends up at Central.
This interest Florida has is probably just Billy Donovan throwing Tito a bone.

The ripping issue seems like it has been fixed. It was an issue in 2011 - 2012. I don't recall seeing any ripped jerseys this past year (2013- 2014). Football is a violent game and jersey tears aren't outside the norm. It did seem like 2011 had a few more than usual. 2012-2013 basketball was bad but this last year I didn't notice any rips.
Adidas is debuting a color that is closer to maize (see the maize practice jerseys) soon too.
Honestly I think people put way too much into the whole nike vs adidas vs under armour thing. Hell the NFL wore rebok up until 2 years ago.
Also is that your German Shorthaired Pointer in your avatar? Nice looking dog.

Prediction: Adidas ponies up some serious cash and we resign with them before the end of 2015.

Smart move by Urban. Get some more Depth at a position of need and some free insights into Michigan's new offense. He would be dumb not to recruit Linday.

Grade inflation is coming to a blog near you.

I think he ends up at Central Michigan. Close to home and a chance to dominate the MAC.
I thought McGary was the most likely to stay out of all three of the sophmores. I really want to know what GRIII is doing.
|6 days 18 hours ago||When all your momentum is||
When all your momentum is travelling towards the sideline trying to get out to block a little CB who can jump sideways real quick you either have to catch them off guard or breakdown and see what you hit. Greatest lesson in football is to keep your head up and always see what you hit. Pancaking is overrated as far as I'm concerned as long as the runner sees your butt and not the defender you made a successful block. It is up to the runner to make cuts off of your block.

We went backwards on the ground. That MSU game was the worst game I have ever seen. I expected us to lose but not like that. 10 years ago we used to beat MSU and then their season would fall apart now it happens to us. The world is cyclical I guess.

I don't think there is a controversy. I think there is competition. I think competition is healthy for everyone. I don't see any benefits by naming your starter in April for game played on August 30, 2014. Coachspeak would dictate saying that every position is in competition. It was spring camp for God's sake. At the end of the day the best QB will start and it is up to the coaches to make that determination so have faith.

Could that be because Brady is promising immediate playing time to recruits?

I don't know if they would have beaten us but I expect it probably would have been a shootout.

According to Jeff Sagarin the 2013 Pac-12(NORTH) and Pac-12(SOUTH) were better than the 2013 SEC-East. SEC-WEST still dominates though.
CONFERENCE CENTRAL MEAN SIMPLE AVERAGE TEAMS WIN50%
1 SEC-WEST (A) = 83.73 83.17 ( 1) 7 83.74 ( 1)

I don't know the "health" and "family" issues really turned me off. I hope they have an 8 win season just to see how dedicated he is to OSU or if those "personal life" issues flare up again. Plus he seems like he benefits from having a great QB in his system. Alex Smith at Utah, Tebow at UF, and Miller at OSU.
|1 week 1 day ago||The "suitable replacement"||
The "suitable replacement" part is key.
Perhaps Nussmeier is in line to take over ala Dana Holgerson at WVU? Would Narduzzi take the job if offered? A Harbaugh assistant maybe? I say a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush for now. Hoke needs a minimum of 10 wins this season (bowl included) to get my support in the off season.
|1 week 1 day ago||Big East sucked after Miami||
Big East sucked after Miami (FL) and Va Tech left so WVU filled the void. Also perhaps his offense is no longer the surprise it used to be now that everyone has some read option in their offense. Honestly I don't expect him to do much at Arizona but they will probably be a perenial bowl team.
|1 week 1 day ago||But why fire Borges then? Why||
But why fire Borges then? Why not keep him as the sacrificial lamb for 2014 thus buying Hoke more time for 2015?
|1 week 1 day ago||It will be hard to get to||
It will be hard to get to Indy without beating at least 1 of those teams. If you go 0-2 vs MSU and OSU then you need both of them to 5-3 in the Big Ten which is not happening.
|1 week 1 day ago||MSU can redshirt their||
MSU can redshirt their freshmen because this will be Dantonios 8th season so his program is established.
We are building up that kind of program now entering Hoke's 4th season. That being said he needs to win at least 1 game out of MSU/OSU or he is done. Because that roster looks like the kind of roster a coach could inherit and win a B1G championship with. Until then I'll support Hoke.
