the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

There's really only a couple plot-dependent happenings during his journey.. One of which requires the TV show to actually give the background to the plot which hasn't been done so far. Other than that, he's just honing his abilities.

The Big 10 is an extremely young conference with players maturing over every single team. The Big 10 draft classes in the upcoming years are going to improve significantly...
I can even see players from Minnesota and NW getting a lot of draft attention - Rashede Hageman from Minn. and Colter, Mark, Prater, and Christian Jones (potentially).

Yeah not like they beat a Georgia team with Bacari Rambo, Alec Ogletree, Aaron Murray, and Tavarres King

Guess what bro (I'm assuming you're a Greek or ex-Greek) I am a 5th year student and I have over 150 credits in my time at this university and I am SICK AND TIRED of people getting better seats than me (as a senior I had row 40) when those people DON'T GIVE A SHIT about Michigan football. I say FUCK those people. I don't care if you're a senior or a freshman or a State student. If you cant take a small hit and pregame from 9 am until only 11 am (GOD FORBID!) then gtfo. Seriously. I don't want to see you in the stadium. I don't care if you spent 450 dollars for the privilege of attending the social event in row 10 your last year here. You either care about Michigan football or leave. Stupid Greek fairweather fan.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Nope. Just because you came||
Nope. Just because you came and talked to your friends in the stadium for 4 years does not entitle you to better seats. Don't pay money for tickets if you only want to talk to your friends.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Sorry, but just because||
Sorry, but just because you're a senior does not mean that you're entitled to those seats. Only the most devoted fans should be entitled to those seats. Athletic department is not taking anything away from you that was yours to being with.
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||The point with the Theon||
The point with the Theon material is that it's supposed to be deliberately confusing - Theon has no idea what's going on... he only knows that he was being tortured, escaped, caught again, almost raped, and then tricked by his "friend" into coming back to the torture chamber. It's not making sense to Theon, so the viewer also doesn't know what's going on.

If you remember from Season 2, Craster gives his boys to his "Gods" - the White Walkers who presumably leave him untouched as long as they keep getting boys. They probably have some way of knowing that he's had a child -> Gilly's child is a boy. Those White Walkers aren't going to be happy when they find out a.) Craster's dead and b.) that boy is gone. Whomever is staying at Craster's is going to be meeting those White Walkers again and probably won't live to tell the tale this time.

She is most like Lyanna, who will probably be described in further detail later this episode by Jojen and Meera.

Oh trust me, I know
In the books, Theon's mental state starts dehumanized and is slowly peeled back like an onion but here it is extremely visceral how he is progressing towards dehumanization. The line about Robb inherting the north simply because he was born and that Theon was born of the iron islands really makes his actions in the last books even more endearing also. I just feel so much pity for him and while his choice did end up screwing the Starks (and others) over, it was because he felt like he had to be loyal to his own roots. Unfortunately, his people betrayed him. Poor guy.
|4 weeks 11 hours ago||This was definitely the best||
This was definitely the best epsiode so far - my favorite scene would have to be when Theon is confiding in his "friend"... He basically summed it all up by saying that he had a choice... but he chose wrong. But frustratingly, he can't see that he does have a chance at redemption. That Ramsay guy is a maniac.

Wait for April 22nd - they'll send an email.
I'm currently an undergrad that is matriculating into Rackham for the fall and I was freaking out about tickets but apparently I count as a new student also.

Louisville by 20. Siva grows wings mid-game and flies over our defense. Dieng sprouts an eight foot long third arm that blocks everything in its path. Kevin Ware's forlorn expression gets imprinted in our player's heads causing them to collapse in pain and Pitino tells the refs to make sure they call for the right team or they'll be sleeping with the fishes.

Yes, but much later in the novel and after a lot of interference with Lannisters and such. I was just surprised that it happened so quickly.

Man... they are changing a lot of material. At least, the order of it. At this point, the show has become its own thing to watch. It's still excellent.. but it's different enough from the book that I have no idea what's going to happen next. When Arya's in that tavern that confused the hell out of me!

Just trying to balance out the bad mojo in this thread don't hate me.

I'm just wondering why you are inconsistently spelling "you" as "u" and "are" as "r"? Is there a particular reason? Are we on twitter where there is a character limit? That'd be news to me.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I'm not making excuses - only||
I'm not making excuses - only observations.
When we were up 21 to 7, I was watching via gamecast on my cellphone and I noticed some things - we were getting called for foul after foul after foul after foul and that's what gave Purdue the spark to come back (in addition to missing easy shots). A lot of those fouls were on missed opportunities for defensive rebounds that Purdue just put back in the net because they have a tall guy. This portion of the game (around the 12 minute mark of the 1st half) corresponds to the begin of the swing up on the KenPom graph to Purdue's side.
Don't you notice something? They call fouls on those offensive-rebound-put-back shots 90% of the time! When I was watching the game later on, I noticed that Purdue players were often times being hit by other Purdue players and that was the source of the foul. How can you be expected to play good defense away from home when a tangle of bodies near the basket most of the time goes the way of the home crowd? Or if putting a single hand on an opponent can be considered a foul, and when they put two on you it's not a foul?
The same thing happens at Crisler too... All of our "gritty" defensive games happen to come at home and it's obvious why that's the case. Home teams are given much more leeway for contact than away teams. For example, the Burke steal on Appling at the end of the home MSU game would most likely have been called a foul if it was at MSU.
Nevertheless, the officiating did in fact come through for us by giving us a window of opportunity around the 10 minute mark of the 2nd half, where I believe we were the beneficiaries of three nearly consecutive blocking fouls which put us near the double bonus. If you look above on the KenPom graph, that corresponds to where the win odds came back to our side.

The refs need to stop blowing it. At least two of those fouls were called when a Purdue player slapped another Purdue player. This is ridiculous

|11 weeks 2 days ago||A couple of things.1.) Binge||
A couple of things.
1.) Binge drinking as an excuse to do stupid things. Especially when that involves groping people or not understanding that they want you to leave.
2.) People claiming to be "drunk" after drinking 2 or 3 beers and then proceeding to do stupid things because they feel like they have their excuse secure.
3.) People that feel that binge drinking is the only way for them to have any fun or do anything positive in their life.
4.) People that have to dress up a particular way so that they're cool among their friends. Whether this is "emo kids" wearing black and skinny jeans or kids wearing leather jackets, slicked back hair, and dancing to twist music.. or even the whole north face + leggings + ugg boots thing. It's ridiculous and juvenile. Grow up people.
5.) "Hipsters". Guys who think they're so knowledgeable about art and music because they know about some guy named Picasso and love Neutral Milk Hotel. They only associate with people that wear leather jackets, skinny jeans, hate sports, and can dance to twist music.
6.) People that hate football and dismiss it as a "stupid game" involving "big guys hitting each other". The fact that these people are so firm in their ignorance makes me even more angry.
7.) Special music critics - People who trash bands like Brand New or Thrice and think that "rock 'n roll has died" and that "the Beatles and The Who are the best bands ever because of those three chords they always use man, not to mention those priceless lyrics man" - who actually don't have a musical background, can't read music, have never listened to or appreciated classical music, and who don't care about lyrics.
Yeah I'm a fairly angry person. When I'm angry nowadays I'm tending to listen to Thrice to calm me down (Anything after Vheissu).
EDIT - I was going to embed. But I suck at embedding and what I remembered to do for embedding didn't work.. listen to "The Arsonist" or "Yellow Belly" by Thrice.

Man for a classic hardcore band, these guys aren't so bad. I never got into Fugazi or the like.. I don't particularly like all the flailing around and being angry all the time bit myself. Thanks for sharing!
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Look people.. Penn State is||
Penn State is garbage, usually.
But tonight, they shot 50% from 3, for 30 points. Tonight was also a rare game in which we committed 10 fouls in 12 minutes <-- these two stats are all you need for an upset. 27 trips to the foul line gives you an opportunity to score up to 49 points. 49 + 30 = 79.
79 points simply off of getting to the foul line and making 3s.
And there's no such thing as 3 point defense. It's random. So stop running your mouths about defense. It just so happens that every team gets hot at the 3 line against us.
