I, for one, agree. Getting a strong power forward this year is an absolute MUST to ensure that Michigan gets to the Frozen Four for the 24th time in a row.

EDIT: Double post... you have my condolences for the lost seconds of your lives scrolling past.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Couldn't happen to a nicer||
Couldn't happen to a nicer guy...
And I agree... I have to get one of those human-sized bags of movie theatre popcorn every time the NFL puts up this fascade of "player safety" and "protecting the shield".
|2 years 41 weeks ago||When are they going to have||
When are they going to have ragdoll physics included (like in Grand Theft Auto), where every hit could be unique. Say you dive and knock out a guy's left leg, he'd fall properly... not in one of the scripted styles they do in the previous NCAAs? That would be awesome.

Beating Delaware 72-3 was so much more gratifying than beating the FCS Northwest Dragons is today...

Poor word choice, rarely is anyone ever "busy" while on The Pot.

I like to use all one color when I play NCAA '12... maybe we should use an all-maize uniform, or all blue? I hope you're listening DB... imagine it.

The Above the Law guy is an absolute idiot... no wonder he wasn't a success as a lawyer. I like this quote: "I’d bet all the money in my pocket that Sweat has not been paying attention to the media coverage of the long-term professional and financial damage that can be done by going to law school." Yes, the long-term professional and financial damage that CAN result from what, furthering his education? You could say the same thing about going to undergrad, or Med school, or grad school... yeah you COULD screw up and not make anything of your life and be forced to tell others how shitty their decisions are for the rest of your life while not really adding anything to society *looks at Above the Law*.
I hope this guy never procreates, imagine...
"Dad, I got into (Med/Law/Grad) School!"
"Well son, I hope you understand how this could damage your future career prospects and ruin your life."
"Aw thanks Dad, I'm glad you've been able to do one thing well in life. You sure can pass on your butt-hurt to future generations with the best of 'em!"

Ran into the same problem last time I did my taxes in a strip club, they made me take off my favorite green accountant's visor.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||I'm not an engineer, but just||
I'm not an engineer, so just out of curiosity... what would the pricetag be for a bottom-basement indoor "stadium". Hell, I'm not even thinking a "stadium" but just a roof and four walls that will maintain an indoor temp. of 60 and above. I think it would be a cool gimmick which could potentially lead to M being a northern power. I mean, if I'm a baseball player, a sport which has the lowest chances of "making it" in the big leagues, I might as well go to a great academic school... which would set Michigan apart from many of the traditional baseball powers. I'm not even a college baseball fan, but I just stumbled upon the thread and though I'd give it a go.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Exactly, U of Pittsburgh||
Exactly, U of Pittsburgh probably has about 600,000 fans in the Pittsburgh area (metro population is probably around 1.5 mil), but I never heard anyone screaming that the BIG10 should make sure to dominate the Pittsburgh market by adding the Panthers (granted PSU dominates). You'd be adding about the same number of fans to the Big 10, adding a more respected/historic program, and essentially securing PA recruits to the Big 10 (W. Pa / Pittsburgh seem to be the hotbeds in the state).

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/highschool-prep-rally/keeling-pilaro-male-field-hockey-player-banned-being-160713816.html So this is obviously bigotry? I don't remember seeing two threads expressing outrage about this subject...
Also, I don't think the argument comparing races to this is completely accurate, as there are real differences between the genders biologically speaking, not so much between "races" (whatever they may or may not be).
|2 years 42 weeks ago||That article is as much about||
That article is as much about religion as it is about sports... treading dangerous waters here....
I'll wait for the fireworks.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Yes, but perhaps helpful||
Yes, but perhaps helpful MGoBloggers can tailor their answers to his specific situation (i.e. family friendly, perhaps rather demure, beer-serving). It is the off season, my hockey team is out of the playoffs, baseball games aren't exactly must-wins yet, the EPL is now over, NFL draft is done.... it's a sports dead time.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||I'm not a New Yorker / from||
I think the statement "Rutgers has 3 times as much fans in NY" might be a littttle misleading... does Rutgers really have any real fans? I can't say I've ever seen/met a Rutgers fan not in NJ and it has been established in the past that NYC just isn't a college sports town (outside of alum fans from big time schools).
Plus, everything I've ever heard about Rutgers has been... bad. No offense to any fans out there, but what would Rutgers add besides teams to get stomped and a huge financial failure in the athletic department? I'd take Maryland/UVa/ND/GT any day over Rutgers.

I'm not a New Yorker / from Jersey, but I have family there. I think the statement "Rutgers has 3 times as much fans in NY" might be a littttle misleading... does Rutgers really have any real fans?

Words to live by, brahhh.

Gems from ESPN Chat: (Slight variations to some OSU jokes... feel free to adjust them accordingly).
-SEC means Steal Every Computer.
-Q: What did the SEC graduate say to you?
A: "Welcome to Chick-fil-A"
-Q: Three SEC football players are in a car, a freshman, junior, and senior. Who's driving? A. The Cops.
Too bad they weren't quarterbacks. Cam Newton was able to just throw his laptop problems far enough away.

Damn, I wish she would've left the "micromanaging" of the team to someone else during the RR hire...
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Welp, I guess MGoPoints are||
Welp, I guess MGoPoints are the similar to being overweight, once you get to a certain point, you might as well give up.
PS- I did find it funny you aggressively defended an accused murdered so... vehemently. I'd hate to see how you defend your mother. I bet C-words would be droppin'.

Who is for pink and who is for animal print? I'd say I'm a fan of the pink...
|2 years 42 weeks ago||I feel a Lil' Woosie after||
I feel a Lil' Woosie after listening to Lil' Boosie on Youtube. So pretty much this guy is famous for his supposed criminal record... now that he has been proven innocent, is his career in trouble. Or can he play the double jeopardy card and be all "Yup, I did it, yo." Although that would definitely make a civil suit a lot easier...
PS: If anyone is looking for a little comedy, search for him on Wikipedia. Among other gems:
"He worked with rapper C-Loc and his group Concentration Camp" (Nice name choice).
"joined growing record label Trill Entertainment which was backed by its CEO the late Pimp C of UGK." Microsoft would solve the "uncool" problem by hiring Pimp C (if of course, Pimps A and B are unavailable) as their next CEO.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Ohhhhhhh boy, this argument||
Ohhhhhhh boy, this argument makes sense. What if the guy is actually 5'2, 125 lbs and isn't particularly skilled at X girls' sport? He can't play because men tend to be better athletes than women? But a girl who is 6'2, 195 and is the spawn of Mia Hamm and Derek Jeter CAN play because women tend to be slightly less skilled athletes?
|2 years 42 weeks ago||It does present some||
It does present some quandries, I remember playing soccer at a relatively competetive level and playing against rural teams with a girl or two from rural areas who, presumably, couldn't field a girls team. I definitely did not slide tackle / check the girls as hard as the guys, even if the girls were just as aggressive, it's just something you are taught all your life not to do. Granted, baseball requires almost no physical contact, so that wouldn't have been an issue. I do feel for guys when they play girls, for instance I remember a guy in my high school who had to wrestle a girl... there was no "good" outcome for him. If he won, he was "beating up on a girl" (yes, I know she was agreeing to the contact, but don't try to explain that to 17 year old guys) or if he lost, he lost to a girl.

Here's the article, this should make for some good discussion: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/highschool-prep-rally/keeling-pilaro-male-field-hockey-player-banned-being-160713816.html
EDIT: Whoops, didn't see that you posted the link a few comments below... don't neg me for being redundant, he should've edited his post!
|2 years 42 weeks ago||You should talk to that one||
You should talk to that one guy, buyaporsche, or whatever his name is. He used to post a lot but I haven't seen him in a while, was quite proud of his collection.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Is it bad that I expect more||
Is it bad that I expect more from MGoBlog than I do from ESPN, or for that matter, any for-profit news source? I find that more and more, the media (please don't embolden them by calling them "journalists") would rather create the news than simply report it.

If we keep following that chain, maybe we can again figure out that Slippery Rock is the #1 team in the nation...

Oh man, never saw that before. Very cool.

Have you ever been to a Taco Bell / KFC combo storefronts? Oh, my... the possible combinations are endlessly delicious. Imagine a cheese quesadilla, KFC Double Down, mashed potatoes with gravy, a few of those dollar soft tacos, and a personal bucket of fried chicken... I bet your mouth is watering now.
