"What (Michigan coaches) told me is that they're focusing on point guards right now, but if anything opens up, they'll definitely come back on and recruit me as hard as they were," said Towns

"Burn" by Ellie Goulding (too much Just Dance 2015 with my 7 year old, although there some songs on the "banned" list, like "Birthday" and "Last Summer" or something like that. When a song references a "birthday suit" and your 7 yo asks, "Isn't that naked? why are they tlaking about being naked?" it goes on the banned list).

To be fair, seems like the kid was a project to begin with, a late flyer added to the roster. Never heard of him before today, so did a little checking and seems like he had some injury issues and was already being left out by the time December rolled around. From a Feb article - below, "He’s appeared in just three of IU’s 25 games this season and none since Dec. 9. None of his 14 career minutes have come in a Big Ten game."

I'll actually be in Wichita! Just day trips the next two times, though, so no opportunities to find good food. Threw me off last time I was there when they changed the airport name.
I usually stay downtown when I'm there - have been at the Ambassador and Hyatt. Have eaten in Old Town (Larkspur was nice, a couple of other joints were meh, wanted to try Public, but closed when we tried it), Cafe Bel Ami (down the street from the Ambassador, decent french bistro), and the hotel restaurant at the Hyatt, which was quite good, if somewhat overpriced.
Favorite coffee is Espresso-to-go-go. Great espresso, and dude knows what he's doing. Disco ball at 7am is a little disorienting, though!

If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife. So from my personal point of view, get an ugly girl to marry you.

My counselor told me to apply to the likes of NC State, Florida, and Clemson, and tried to steer me away from any upper tier schools.
I ignored him and applied to MIT, Cornell, Columbia, Michigan, and GT instead. Got into all but MIT (deferred and ultimately rejected). Chose Michigan and the rest is history.

One of the worst things you can do is set your goals too low and achieve them.
John Beilein to Austin Hatch
Be joyful always. Pray continually. Give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
I Thess 5:16-18
You can't do everything on your own.
Calm down. It's just a game. (on my rage fits after Michigan lost at anything)

This week, I'm in my office in the NW suburbs of Chicago. Next week, I'll be in Oregon, and the two weeks after that in Kansas. After that, probably DC, and then Toronto, then back to Kansas.

Define "physical ceiling." Even if he stays that size for the rest of his HS career, it's GREAT size. Also, he's already clearly physically gifted if he's pulling down 500+ receiving yards for his HS varsity squad. You'd have to imagine he'll be getting better as he matures and gets stronger and faster and learns better technique, skills, etc. Only question now is whether he's going to be a football kid or basketball kid.

To participate in was autocross, back when I had my 93 MR2 Turbo. Also loved those weekend mountain runs in north Georgia when I lived in Atlanta.
To watch? Tough, because most of the racing I like watching is not on ovals, so difficult to watch the whole thing, but probably rally and F1.

A pop what? Pop band? Definitely New Kids on the Block, before all this NKOTB nonsense. Also the Backstreet Boys, original version.

They were the LA Angels (b/c Los Angeles = the angels), California Angels, Anaheim Angels, and now the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
I think they're the only team with TWO cities in their name.

Take his statements at face value - he values being a basketball player for Michigan, but he values his academics more. Neither basketball nor academics were where he wanted them to be, so he felt he had to choose - and the decision was academics.
If the pressure came from anywhere, it was from within. He doesn't seem like the type who would settle for anything less than his best, and he wasn't meeting that criterion in either domain.

I get the semantics, but let's just call it a postseason conference championship. That would be inclusive of all sports with either a championship game/meet/match or tournament.

I agree with that to an extent. The coaching here has been masterful, as well as the ability to build a really solid roster with players who are unselfish and know their roles. There is no true superstar on this team. This is their starting 5 - Horford (NTH), Korver, Teague, Millsap, Carroll.

My immediate first thought, also. I guess growing up in Atlanta and religiously watching Dukes of Hazzard as a kid influenced me in some way. And no, I don't consider the movie version a worthy reboot.

And only two PROGRAMS (UK, UCLA) have won more national championships. And every Duke natty (5) has come under Krzyzewski. IU and UNC also have 5 championships, but under multiple coaches.

As a guy who grew up in Atlanta and followed the Hawks from the early 80s in my childhood, nobody ever called him "Dom." He was always Dominique, or just 'Nique.
