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

|30 weeks 4 hours ago||Hey so,||
you probably get this a lot...but, are you, uh...the Proclus?
|30 weeks 2 days ago||...although he won't actually be at the game?*||
|30 weeks 3 days ago||He does have a game, league championship this weekend...||
which is why, I believe, Shallman won't be attending either.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||Math is the most common-sense field there is...||
or did you mean "the eye-ball test" instead of "common sense"?
|37 weeks 2 days ago||Coming this fall, Michael Scarn in...||
Fret Level: Midnight.
|37 weeks 5 days ago||Mmm, Spartan tears taste like sugar...||
so yummy and sweet.
Also, RVB just swallows up Persa (?) in one of the Evanston highlights.
|42 weeks 3 days ago||So, no one's in doubt to start Fall camp...||
from an injury perspective? Not Poole? Or is that something that gets cleared up on Monday?
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Our 3rd and short defense in that game was...||
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Fuck it! Yes!||
That's your answer. That's your answer for everything! Tatoo it on your forehead!
|1 year 12 weeks ago||No person was defenestrated...||
but their hopes were.
Incidentally, I'll be interested to see what Wilbon says today ;)
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Flamebaited? Come on, these never get old||
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Forgot 2 important ones:||
|1 year 23 weeks ago||*NBA Jam voice says* "He's heating up..."||
|1 year 23 weeks ago||So, so winner...||
|1 year 23 weeks ago||How is that a "jet" play at all? No one is in motion before||
the snap...I thought a jet sweep utilized a man-in-motion who received the ball right after the snap while running full speed. Hence, "jet."
|1 year 23 weeks ago||I get the spirit of it, I'm just saying it's stupid...||
Moving from 20% to 30% confidence is a relative increase of 50% in confidence; one could argue it IS worth quite a bit. Indeed, I think ANY improvement would be beneficial in this case.
Further, instituting a playoff would not be that hard, and you are more (though not perfectly) insulated from these kinds of criticisms: the differences between teams ranked 1-3 are much smaller than the differences between teams ranked 1-6 or 1-8. The last team out has less of an argument that they are legitimate contenders as you increase the number of teams. So why not increase the number of teams?
|1 year 23 weeks ago||You wouldn't want a playoff if it potentially DOUBLES the||
fictional accuracy of choosing NC contenders? Obviously 100% is ideal...but if there is a concrete way to get closer to 100%, you wouldn't do it because it doesn't get you all the way there?

Me gustan los commits. MUCHAS ESTRELLAS, POR FAVOR!!
|1 year 24 weeks ago||When is Wright deciding?||
Haven't seen that here....
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Hail to the seniors...||
They were starvin', not anymore!!
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Take it easy on the delivery guy, Brian...||
It's not his fault he can't read!
|1 year 25 weeks ago||"But||
if MGoBlog didn't come around to combine that loss with the narrative of the Declining Carr (which then melded into the narrative of Thwarted Rodriguez Promise) and give it that catchy name, it wouldn't seem like that big of a deal. "
No, it is and was a big deal. It was literally a historical first, you cannot dispute that. That's why sportswriters will never stop talking about it.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Yep, sure came out quickly in the 2nd though, 51 points||
in the half for us.
Duke was amazing from 3pt range though. Even more amazingly, if we make our FT's and shoot a little better from distance (we were 31%), we might have been able to withstand that great shooting performance.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Yeah, but at what cost?||
At what point does individual talent trump chemistry? What are others who wanted to visit going to think if you bend the rules for PB?
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Fisher's going to be good, and we have a small hole at OT||
for the immediate future. That one still stings :(
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Yeah, I had the same reaction....||
You won't hear Hoke et al. talk about "balance." Probably won't hear them talk about anything besides winning. And if Meyer doesn't win, Ohio fans will immediately question "balance."
|1 year 25 weeks ago||If La Tech and UTEP can hang within 1 score of Houston...||
then I would consider them "beatable" from a UM perspective.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Then you need to explain why you think it is so, because||
it doesn't seem to me that you have.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Kids committed to other schools aren't committed to UM...||
if they were committed to UM and they were looking around, Hoke would pull the offer. But they're committed somewhere else, and Hoke doesn't have any control over over schools' recruiting strategy. Control what you can control: how is this hypocritical?

was that his first basket, inside a minute? Unfortunately not his best night.
