First off, I wish the young man a speedy recovery and am sorry it happened to him at a time when he could have represented the U.S. in a big-time tournament.
Secondly, Damn, The Notre Dame game must have been the moment 2013 decided that we can't have nice things. This is starting to become absurd.
I'm actually starting to I think it might be me:
Air Force had it's worst football season ever
Tottenham Hotspur got destroyed by Man City and Liverpool and fired the manager, despite bringing in tons of new talent. Oh, and I forgot Real Madrid deciding it had a right to Spurs best player and tapped him up
I'll say this right now, I am trying to find that damn gypsy.

Yeah I'm curious about that as well. Always fun to find out who the a$$holes are.

This is where I go YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Glad he's in back in the fold and I look forward to seeing him here.

He still may join the class, but if he feels the need to look around it is really hard to begrudge him that.
I doubt the door will shut and the good guys may still come out on top here, let's take a deep breath and take the long view, there's still over a year until he would have signed.
Either way best of luck to hiom wherever he ends up as long as it isn't Ohio St. or Bama.

You're doing amazing work. THank you for the updates and keep it up.

I get tired of the anti-Michigan thing, but I think for the most part he's pretty good. Getting burned SUCKS and I hope he recovers well.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Yeah, as an Air Force guy who||
Yeah, as an Air Force guy who roots for Navy and Army whenever they're not playing Air Force, I was well and truly struck by the fact that the players a the other academies actively did not return the favor. I think it's stupid, but I still think it is motivated in part by jealousy and maybe a bit of dismissiveness due to the Air Force not having the tradition of the Army or the Navy.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Navy toys and Air Force toys||
Navy toys and Air Force toys are about the same in terms of coolness I think, although i admit the SuperHornet is a hell of a machine.
The Air Force builds the morale facilities first thing is a farce, but it's a funny one. The main thing is the Navy does have to keep those gigantic ships maintained and that kills it's budget for land based faciltiies. I truly think the Army just does not give a shit and so the Air Force, which gets budget for both maintaining it's cool airborne toys as well as the cyber command can use the money to work on facilities.

And yet I don't think we really have room for them either..........
|3 days 9 hours ago||I think a large part of it is||
I think a large part of it is driven by jealousy and a feeling that the Air Force just isn't as "Hard" as the other services.
Army guys have to go and eat dirt for months on end in some S***hole bases and Navy guys are stuck "Hot-bunking" and dealing with other fun and joys of ocean bound life. Air Force, by contrast, does tend to have better facilities and lifestyle(along with being masters of the budgetary battles).
This filters down to the football games as well with Army and Navy having a grudging respect but often feeling like the Air Force guys are punks and what not.
In truth, it's fine by me. Life is all about choices and the fact I was smarter than the Army and Navy guys when I picked my service isn't something I feel any obligation to feel bad about.

They recruit. Most kids who go to the academy as intercollegiates never considered the academy until they were recruited. Recruits tend to have MAC level offers with maybe a Purdue type offer for seasonings for the better ones.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Ask any football player at||
Ask any football player at the academy why he came to the academy and the answer will more often than not be, "Because I could play D1 football here and get a good education." The military thing rarely comes into it. Same answer applies for most of the other intercollegiates. That's not to say they don't have a place in the military afterwards, as an example, baseball players tend to make great pilots(best students I had when I was teaching pilot training), but it's rare they think of military first. They also do miss out on some training due to practice, games, etc. but I would say that's a trade off that favors the regular cadet.
|4 days 1 hour ago||For most of the football||
For most of the football players while they are there it is football first and military second, this goes for most of the intercollegiate athletes. Not necessarily a bad thing, but the typical cadet is not playing football there.

I'm mad. All they had to do aye the end if the game was to get ONE defensive rebound to seal the game and they just got their asses kicked on the boards. They blew a large lead in the last six minutes. I am tired of watching Michigan play sloppy while getting out-thought,fought, and hustled. Whatever disease hit the football team this year has infected the basketball team as well. I am sure they will improve but it looks like another year of getting beat up inside, but no Trey and Tim to paper over the cracks.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Getting rid of Tom Bombadil||
Getting rid of Tom Bombadil was the best creative decision ever and the flight out of Hobbiton was(much like The Hobbit) a long description of people being hungry. The original movies were fine and had insanely long directors cuts. Jackson is prone to excess here and frankly the first movie suffered from the long chase scenes.

This cannot possibly have been a surprise to anyone. It would be nice if someone else came calling and got him away from MSU, but I have a feeling we're cursed to live with him and his magic Borges voodoo until something in the dynamic changes(hint it won;t be Narduzzi going anywhere).
|1 week 3 days ago||Let's stick with the agreed||
Let's stick with the agreed upon alternate names, either Groucho Marl or Sam the Eagle, everyone gets what they want, you don't have to use Dantonio's name and we get to read an alternate that's at least clever.

You have to be thinking about Tommy Schutt. Bosa was NEVER in danger of going anywhere but OSU.

Somehow I think OSU is okay with Guiton taking over in that circumstance.
|1 week 5 days ago||I think Auburns break already||
I think Auburns break already came and went. I have a feeling everyone outside of the SEC footprint and ESECPN will lose their minds if Auburn leapfrogs a 25-0 team over the past couple of years.

An Ohio kid getting his head turned by the Buckeyes in a year in which Ohio is going to the nat'l championship and Michigan looked like complete hot garbage? I am shocked! Shocked! That there is gambling in this establishment.
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||The team will be fine, but||
The team will be fine, but needs some time to round into form. Two years ago against Virginia they had a similarly disheartening experience and if I recall correctly that team turned out okay. They'll come good, maybe not to the levels we all thought they would, but I think they'll be okay. Young teams take time to gel, especially with a freshman point guard.

BB v. Lousiville, why are we even talking about this?

DeRuyter would be a great choice. Air Force's defense has never been the same since he left and I am sure he would love the opportunity. I just wonder if there is maybe more a "prove it" atmosphere with him as two good seasons at Fresno St.might not be enough of a resume, especially when he lucked into having the latest Carr brother as his QB.

Dude you're talking about the jackwads at Bruins Nation a group well known throughout the rest of the fanbase to be insane idiots. They're basically the RCMB/MLive equivalents. I wouldn't judge UCLA fans by those guys.
