If it makes you feel better I tried to edit my post to add Roy Roundtree to my list but I couldn't because you responded, so in essence you also beat me by one minute.

I'm almost positive they wore the blue alternates at least once last year. Perhaps during the B1G tournament? I don't think they had long sleeves though.
|4 days 16 hours ago||I thought||
I thought you were talking about basketball for a second.
|1 week 1 day ago||You mean conference championships?||
Yes, people do care about those.

Can't believe you forgot Hansbrough.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Murphy plays for||
Murphy plays for Lake Michigan Catholic, not St. Joe HS, and they didn't have any mutual opponents last year, so I think you are mistaken about playing against Murphy.

HYTA applies to people between age 17 and 20. So yes it applies to people tried as adults.

Damnit. Good call, I should have known better than to not double check what I was about to say.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||No||
No, the same conduct constitutes sexual assault today as it did in 2009. Only the amount of evidence needed to prove the conduct was changed.

How very Notre Dame of you...
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks for your input everybody||
Thanks for your input everybody. I think he would be inclined to go the normal business route if it were an option, but unfortunatley the admisson requirements are probably too stringent.

Heiko said in a podcast that reports from practice were that he couldn't cover anybody.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Home games for NW||
Home games for NW usually feature a ton of Michigan fans, so that's not necessarily a bad thing.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Rock, Paper, Scissors||
It refers to the coach's ability to call the right play at the right time and/or have the right play design for the situation (e.g. properly throwing rock when the opposing coach throws scissors).
|21 weeks 4 days ago||I like the idea||
I like the idea of a running efficiency statistic like Borges mentioned. I'm not sure if I've been living under a rock, but I've never heard it mentioned like that before. I think that would be an valuable thing for Brian, Seth, or another contributor with time to track.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Something||
Something can be unsurprising and upsetting at the same time.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||He returned to the game||
He returned to the game, so he's probably fine.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Good thing||
Good thing that wasn't offensive. Since when is it okay to insult others' religions on this board?
|22 weeks 1 day ago||It's happening at||
It's happening at every school, we are just not an exception. Time to change something (either stadium experience or our expectations).

I was a kickstarter.

What method are you using to ship the magazines? I am moving in a little over a week and can forward my mail, but if you are using UPS or Fedex i don't think I will get the magazine in time. Can I give you a new address to send it to? Thanks.

Kenny Demens taking over for Obi Ezeh in 2010 is a great example of this.

oh damn, I gave up, the stream was too bad to make it worth my while.

This team has some seriously funny guys. It makes rooting for them so much more fun.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||Weren't some||
Weren't some on MLB Network last year? Did they commit to not doing that again?
|23 weeks 4 days ago||I agree||
I agree to a certain extent. Reporters absolutely need to try to ask more useful questions. I'm really just saying that I'm somewhat sympathetic in general to the reporters at press conferences because they are walking a narrow line sometimes. Heiko wasn't exactly the best example for me to use for a few reasons. First, not every coach would be as nice to Heiko as Borges has been, and even Borges has been short with him at times. Second, Heiko writes for a much different audience than Joe Schmo from the local news. Regular reporters aren't pestering coaches about more technical things because they would be over the head of and/or uninteresting to the average reader.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||I think it||
I think it goes both ways. Reporters ask lazy questions because they know that coaches rarely give candid answers. In return, coaches give crappy generic answers because they don't want to reveal real information and because they don't respect the reporters' questions. Look at how much of a struggle it has been for Heiko to get real X's and O's answers out of the coaches regarding certain topics.
