"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Unfortunately, he probably will need it with this guy as his boss.

Ace, first of all glad to hear you are feeling better and appreciate you are using this forum to increase awareness.
I just wanted to respond to one point in your post that I thought was not completely accurate. You had mentioned that celiac testing is notoriously inaccurate but this is not completely true. Blood testing for celiac disease is 90-95% sensitive and specific which makes it a very good screening test. Ultimately, small bowel biopsies are confirmatory in the correct clinical context. You are correct in noting that blood testing will not detect those people with gluten intolerance which is a topic that deserves further research and study.
Anyway, thanks again for your contributions to the blog and bringing attention to this topic.

they would have won a national championship this year even with Braxton. Their offensive line was atrocious and their secondary still looks pretty suspect.

Of all the professional sports, NBA is the most predictable in terms of who will win. Lebron is obviously an amazing athlete and a once a generation talent, but the NBA is unwatchable for me because of the lack of suspense.

A little OT but can I ask why you say RA Dickey was lucky to win the Cy Young Award? Yes, Kershaw had an excellent season in 2012 and certainly a reasonable case could be made to vote for Kershaw over RA. But RA Dickey had some amazing statistics including an xFIP 3.27, 4.26 K/BB ratio, 69% strike percentage, and a really impressive 82% quality starts.

The coaching staff did not have a great night but you can't blame the coaches for 3 TOs leading to 14 points and 3 missed FG's.

Someone should tell him to look at his own quarterback for inspiration on terrible QBs.
Probably should include Roby and the Ohio secondary as well for uninspiring play.

As if landing a likely 5 star WR isn't good enough, they also have legitimate interest from Artavis Scott and KJ Williams. Obvious statement but this class is shaping up to be very special.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Syracuse perspective||
To be fair, I think the vast majority of Syracuse fans have stated that it was a tough call but regardless of whether it was a block or charge, it wasn't the deciding factor in the game. I think we realize that Michigan was the better team on Saturday.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Congrats||
Congrats from a Syracuse fan. Michigan played tremdendous tonight. McGary was amazing as a true freshman. Good luck on Monday night.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Syracuse||
As someone who has watched a lot of Syracuse basketball this year, their regular season statistics are a little deceiving. They had a 4 game stretch, excluding a bad Depaul team, to end the season where they were completely lost on offense and no one could make a jump shot to save their life. They went from a potential #2 seed to a hopeful #4/5 seed.
Fast forward to the BET and NCAA tournament, Cuse has been a different team. MCW has been more focused on running the offense as opposed to taking ill advised shots. Triche and MCW have also made a concerted effort to help out with defensive rebounding which has always been a problem for Syracuse. Perhaps akin to McGary's breakout, BMK has been a revelation defensively, on the offensive boards, and surprisingly at the FT line.
I still think Michigan has too many weapons on offense. While Syracuse's offense is looking much more composed, they still struggle to score points at times. I think Michigan pulls out a win on Saturday.

The Buckeyes LOSE!

You would think Wichita State would have better designed inbounds play coming off a time out?

And not allowed to ref again in the tournament
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Agreed||

Even the cheerleaders from Wichita State look better than Ohio State

It would also be great if the refs would call a foul on at least 25% of the times that Craft hand checks and/or holds an opponent
