Well, I can't be faulted for that one. I did look for it. I didn't link directly to him either so he's not getting the clicks. Mods can edit it and lock thread if they want to avoid it being posted again potentially.

They already did. I posted in his original hello post on the board. Someone actually said that Um only became interested in him because Dantonio was.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Whenever there's a recruiting||
Whenever there's a recruiting victory against the Fighting Dantoni's I always like to peruse their cespool (seriously, it's a cespool of comments I stopped making when I graduated from high school) to see how well they are handling it. It's always fun to read and they didn't let me down this time. Here's some of their comments.
Its disappointing for MSU but he's a player who might be ignored by umaa if Dantonio hadn't been as successful as he has been vs umaa.
That is going to hurt their average star rating. When you are averaging between 3 and 4 stars as MSU and UM both are, every 4-star committ is a win and every 3-star is a loss.
Yeah, not even a consensus 4 Star. Very much in danger of being #Harballed #Meritocracy
Who could turn down an August Natty, a circus, soiled khakis and a chance to get cut? Seriously!
Next man up. He will regret this decision, when Harbaugh drops him on signing day for a higher rated player at the same position.

Can we donate Rutgers and Penn State to the Big 12 and pick up something for ourselves instead?

I haven't set foot in a gym, but did clean up my eating quite a bit. Tracking my macronutrients and controlling caloric intake. I started out 244 with a 38/40 in waist. I'm now just over 218 with a 34/36 waist. I'm 6'3" for reference. My goal is 205. PLan to start hitting the gym and focus on muscle building once i hit that weight goal.

Would you risks seeing the crown jewel of the B1G? Buy now and pay top dollar. It's well worth it. /s

Video of the slap is here.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Only thing I got out of that||
Only thing I got out of that article is that MSU fans are fairweather fans. When the team wins, they like it and donate. When the team doesn't, they all disappear. Meanwhile, UM's donations have climbed consistently even during the bad years.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||The season will likely prove||
The season will likely prove me wrong, but I don't see MSU getting 10 wins this year.

Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch is awesome. Low volume of episodes, but they are extremely well done.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Meant to say Alternate||
Meant to say Alternate history. Fingers typed their own thing. I love Alternate history. Been a long time since I read any and didn't hear about this show till today actually. I'm looking forward to it.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I'm hearing good things about||
I'm hearing good things about a series on Amazon Prime called Man with the High Castle. Revisionist history where Japan and Germany won WW2 and the US is split between them.

Christ. That page and the analysis makes my eyes bleed. Does he realize there's no charge for using space on a digital page?
|8 weeks 2 days ago||For me it was soccer and||
For me it was soccer and basketball. I was in LL because my dad wanted me there, but I just wasn't all that invested in it. Another thing that doesn't help is the games. They just drag on. I love going to the park and enjoying a game, but I just can't make myself sit down and watch it on tv. Kind of like Golf. I love drowning some golf balls, but there's absolutely no reason I can think of why I would want to watch it on tv.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I blame a lot of this on the||
I blame a lot of this on the mid 90's baseball strike. It caused a generation to have a distaste for the game and we're about 1 generation removed from that happening. So the parents of kids these days aren't nearly as invested in baseball as the pervious generations were.

|10 weeks 1 day ago||I suppose if an institution||
I suppose if an institution is receiving funds from the state that they would be susceptible to such a thing. I would think it would be a very rare thing to happen and only happen in extreme situations.
If I was Pitino, I'd start planning my retirement.

are there recruiting rules which limit the contact of current players to prospective players? I have to imagine there are but wonder what they are.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I was supposed to go on a||
I was supposed to go on a cruise in the Caribbean in March. my wife found out she was pregnant the week we were supposed to leave. Even though I had purchased trip insurance Royal Caribbean would not refund my money despite having a doctors note including diagnoses code saying to not travel because of Zika. I ate the $3500 on the cruise because my childs future was more important than a week in the sun. I personally don't know why they haven't moved this or postponed it as the risks to unborn is large and a huge gathering of people will only increase the chance of it becoming a much larger widespread outbreak. Granted a normal person getting this isn't the end of the world, but the unknowns and indications that the virus can live in the sperm for up to 2 years should make changing this common sense.

for some reason this made me think of the zamboni scene in deadpool.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Most companies that are large||
Most companies that are large have ranges that HR mandates and it's usually set what the incoming pay will be. There's usually a little variance allowance. For instance, my engineers come in at a mid point of 100,600. I can usually get finance to move up to 105, maybe 108 if the right person is there. The problem is that not all companies are the same. My last job, I couldn't hire anyone in at any rate other than the mandated incoming pay stated by HR.
The best way to work this is to negotiate based on what you are worth. Don't focus on what they are offering and try to milk it for what you can. If they offer 52k and you know you're worth 60k, then tell them that. Explain WHY you're worth 60k as opposed to someone who is worth 52k. If they don't move, then they either don't think you're worth it, or they have no variance in what they can offer. Then it's a matter of you either settling or moving on.
Having 3 offers on your plate makes thing nice, but don't pit them against each other. Deal with them individually and highlight your value. One thing I always avoid when I'm personally job searching is disclosing what I'm currently making. It's not mandatory for them to know and I can easily tell them nicely that I feel that my value will be portrayed in my interview and that I'm asking for xxx amount (whatever it is that I want). If they can't meet that salary, the recruiter will typically say it up front. Then I have the power to move forward ot wait.

I don't care who wins, I just want to see Lebron cry at the end of another failed season.

To be clear, the question is rhetorical. I just loved the interview.

|14 weeks 5 days ago||I agree. This mentality||
I agree. This mentality didn't work out well for Hoke either with his 'boo-boos' philosophy. In the end it was part of the hole that sunk him. Not that Beilein is in that situation, but if your player is legitimately out, then set the proper expectations for your fans. Dragging them week by week only intesifies their feelings around the situation. Remember, never turn a 1 day story into a 3 day story. Same philosophy.
That said, if there was legitimate possibility that LaVert could return, then he was in the right. I just don't see that being the case seeing the data that is now out.

I have a 5 year old and a wife who lives and breathes it. I'm also in Atlanta which makes getting to Disney entirely too easy. I agree with you though. We're doing a 4 day trip in a couple weeks and I could easily find a better way to spend a couple grand.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||The RockinRoll coaster at||
The RockinRoll coaster at Disney accelerates at 4.5gs. I can definitely see how there would be concerns (especially with elderly and young), but the speeds listed aren't really out of the realm of possibility.
