"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."

|1 year 36 weeks ago||Right, so they were||
Right, so they were essentially professionals. That was my point. Guys like Toni Kukoc were being paid in Europe to play for their club teams as well as their national teams before the 1992 Olympics.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Gerry McNamara (maybe Hakim||
Gerry McNamara (maybe Hakim Warrick to a lesser extent) made him great his one year in college. That guy can play for me anyday. True leader.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Why? Before the Dream Team,||
Before the Dream Team, the US was the only country who didn't use professionals in the Olympics, which was understood as a bit of a disadvantage. Today it would be an insurmountable disadvantage with the way basketball has exploded globally. Our amateurs would not stand a chance.
Can't be interested if they aren't playing.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Blake Griffin is a highlight||
Blake Griffin is a highlight machine, but Kevin Love is your starter (if not Chandler for the sake of size in the paint). Love does everything well. He can score inside and out, rebound, defend, pass, and, unlike Griffin, make free throws. Blake Griffin can't do a handful of those things at even close to an Olympic level.

Only silver lining I see in this whole Heat/Big 3 debacle would be Juwan getting a ring. There was a good Deadspin article today on the topic:
|1 year 37 weeks ago||If he wins one, he wins one.||
If he wins one, he wins one. But the King James nickname is the most absurd thing in sports. Try catching up with MJ, Kobe, Bill Russell, Bird, and Magic then we can talk about a coronation.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||I was fortunate enough to||
I was fortunate enough to hear Bob Chappuis speak in Prof. John Bacon's "History of College Athletics" class my sophomore year (2008) and retell all of these stories being recounted again here today. Truly incredible to accomplish so much for his country and his university. RIP.

going to try the sopcast
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Agreed||
Nothing wrong, even as a Michigan alum and fan, that admitting OSU has been remarkably consistent and resilient given their infractions.
That should only give you more pleasure in beating them.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||TMZ||
Seems to be a relatively reputable source on these topics, especially in SoCal. CBS and SI writers are retweeting the reports which means they believe in their validity.
Sad day for the NFL, for the Chargers organization, and for San Diego's community. Junior was born and raised in the area.

Mel Kiper had an ESPN conference call today in which he stated that Taylor Lewan could "maybe" be the next Jake Long. High praise.

A bong would be similar in its health effects as smoking a joint, FYI. Both involve the combustion of the marijuana plant which is the process that introduces carcinogens. As opposed to the vaporizer, which extracts the THC from the plant by superheating the plant itself, rather than burning it.

I believe that is called a "pooler"
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Waiver||
It's possible he won't have to sit out if the NCAA grants him a waiver, which he's applied for since CMU fired his dad. I'm not sure what the decision process is on the NCAA side but it seems like a circumstance that may allow him to play immediately.

A turd in the punchbowl
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Or Kevin Love?||
Just needs to extend his range and he becomes that kind of player. Same knocks on K. Love coming out of college.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||ESPN's reply||
This is almost suredly ESPN's reply to the article that Pat Forde (formerly of ESPN) wrote for Yahoo almost 24 hours before.
ESPN would never be the first to bash Urban, OSU or Florida. But the Twitter world started calling them out for it after Forde published this and looks like they went to Schlabach and told him to rewrite the same article.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Best bet||
I studied abroad in Barcelona while I was a student at UM. There definitely isn't a "Michigan" bar like you'll find in NYC or Chicago over there but there are some places where you can find American sports. I think your friends' best bet is calling the George and Dragon Pub and asking if they can play the game. It's a longshot but they played NFL games there on Sundays and say they'll try and cater to any request.

This is a good shirt. Basic, timeless, etc. just gets the point of UM football across without going "All In".

On Twitter last night. Chris Fowler asked for the Twitterverse's opinion on the song and hinted they'd consider a change.

Apologies for not posting earlier, also....

For history buffs like me - http://www.pbs.org/mormons/
Good Frontline special on the Mormon faith, both it's beginnings and present day.

Josh Selby in that group, as well? He's had to sit out the past few games with a hurt foot. But he's also averaging 12 PPG and leading the #2 team in the nation in assists. Pretty solid campaign.
