Or both his parents can push so hard that it makes him double down on Michigan. If nothing else, he'll be forced to think about and defend his position and I have a feeling it will still play out well for the good guys. We've seen the opposite where parents push hard for M and the guy still goes where he wants to go. Might as well have this play out Michigan's way for once.

I don't think it will, I think from the show runners perspective he's too good of a villain to lose until the big bads get in the frame. It's too bad though as most viewers have lost pati nice with him in a major way. It's not like he's a love to hate villain the way Roose might be, he's just an unpl wasn't watch.

This is great team to watch, talented and dangerous through the roster. I wish them luck, but am glad I got to watch them get this far! Good Luck ladies and CRUSH it!

That is amazing. Wonder if the underhand delivery helps at all? Regardless it's impressive as hell.
|4 days 14 hours ago||I know when I was||
I know when I was playing(high school, nothing impressive), I hated trap plays because it forced a read and then a quick change to take on the blocker vs. My preferred "fly through the line and cause havoc" approach(As I was an undersized d-lineman). I agree they're a very effective counter/constraint type play and look forward to seeing them deployed effectively.

Oy! Hopefully this is a Florida St. type situation in which the bones of the program are good and a new coach can get it going again relatively quickly.
Still it's a bad sign when the guys who are suppossed to be next years building blocks are going for the escape hatches as quickly as possible.

I don't even know how to respond to this. I imagine even the West point cadets are laughing about this one.
|5 days 13 hours ago||In the first case of Ohio St.||
In the first case of Ohio St. Turnover luck applies. IIRC there were several promising drives that ended due to either turnovers or an inability to kick a field goal that basically made fourth downs mandatory.
In the case of Miss. St. the team was done, I remember the ball moving pretty well in the first half until the defenses inability to do anything of consequence led to what was basically, "Here we go again" and the team went into a shell.
According to stats the offense was pretty great that year, but it did seem to fizzle against any half decent opponent and the inability to really hold onto the ball kept getting the all-time worst defense exposed. It's not really cherry-picking vs. perhaps an insufficient acknowledgment of how bad the team was.

Maybe this is the time to make the youth movement take over in earnest and bring up a coach who can grow with the Tatar's and Glende int's of the world.

You can't be a Michigan fan and a Bob Seger hater. Sorry, I don't make the rules.
|1 week 12 hours ago||UCLA fan, so not even a little bit.||
Arizona is basically the Michigan St. of the PAC-12 with obnoxious fans with major chips on their shoulders and a terrible stadium and home atmosphere. Rodriguez is a good coach who will do very well there and while I like Rodriguez, I really want 'Zona to be no better than perenially 6-6 to 8-4(and thats only because of Rodriguez).

I came to Michigan for my MBA and have always been a huge sports fan so it was pretty natural for me to add following Michigan to my repertoire. I also decided to live here after completing my MBA and thus am always surrounded by it. Just happened a bit by accident and osmosis, but now even if I move I will still be a die-hard and will ensure the kids keep singing, "The Victors".
|1 week 1 day ago||It absolutely was part of the||
It absolutely was part of the overall story of Ramsay's wedding night with continued proof of his being a psychotic bastard. Did it happen to Samsa in the books, no but it did happen to someone else. So it was part of the story.
|1 week 1 day ago||This is exactly my point.||
This is exactly my point. Martin BADLY needed an editor for books four and five and I feel like the show is performing that function, if not especially elegantly. If it pisses him off, GREAT! Maybe that'll get him to to listen to criticism instead of deciding it's all fluff trying to get him to write faster.
|1 week 1 day ago||I have read it once....and||
I have read it once....and was mad that I did, the scene was arguably worse in the books. Martin had built a compelling world and characters but he is clearly working out some issues as he totally dwells on scenes like this. The takeover of the shield islands being another example of his penchant for going too far with this stuff.

Just have the brotherhood without banners do the plot line without Lady Stoneheart it won't change much as long as Thoros is around.
|1 week 2 days ago||I think they have to deviate||
I think they have to deviate from the books in order to ensure they can keep the attention of the TV audience and keep the story moving. The last two books are just complete and total messes in terms of the scope of the story and narrative progress and if there's some narrative discipline being applied to the TV series it's all to the better.

Agree, we all know Ramsay is an asshole and what happened on the wedding night can be discussed later or aluded to,

Yeah, I pretty much hated it, I mean I know it's part of the story, but by this point we all get that certain people are just shit and it can be implied instead of shown.

Agreed Auburn is a decent school and a good academic choice for an undergrad degree.

Just remember, Pictures or it never happened.

I hope there's a path for him to come back and get a degree, it's hard to be told that you're not a part of the future on a team, in a job, etc. I have a ton of sympathy for h and hope it all ends up working out.
|1 week 5 days ago||Agreed, but most in the||
Agreed, but most in the military know that most of that is window dressing. If you're connected or a "performer" a DUI is kep quiet if it's at all possible. Then the others get crucified when they get caught, so appearrances can be maintained. Minick may have thought he was going to be fine as he was connected and knew nothing was ever really going to happen to him.
I would also argue that the message gets repeated so many times that eventually people tune it out.
|1 week 5 days ago||I can get behind the license||
I can get behind the license suspensiuon over it, but attaching any legal prosecution issues to it is MAJORLY problematic constitutionally. Revoking a privilege is fine(if not my favorite thing either, as someone may just be cantankerous or doesn't want an arguably inaccurate test to determine his or her fate and losing a privilege for a year for that seems.....excessive), but the criminal penalties associated with DUI are (rightly) so severe that assigning them simply based on a refusal to take a test just cannot be justified, with or without the fifth amemdment.
As always I ask, what if it was you in this situation, what sort of legal protection would you want?

I say this as an Air Force vet, the military culture is defined by two things in relation to alcohol:
1. Alcohol is often an integral part of group events and is used quite often(which I don't necessarily have a big problem with as god knows I participated in that quite willingly and had a lot of good times through it), it does lead to an issue where you don't know if you have friends or drinking buddies.
2. If you get a DUI in the military, it will either get swept under the rug or get you crucified depending on how connected you are. If you're a "performer" or buddies with the commanders you're typically fine. If you're not in those groups your career is over. This may have led Minick to assume the same rules apply on the outside and so he may have honestly been surprised to see this become a thing.
|1 week 5 days ago||Sometimes you just need to admit you're losing||
I get taking contrary opinions and most of the ones you have on here aren't terrible surface-level observations, but you seem to be getting torn apart on counter-arguments and your need to respond to each one isn't a good look. Every once in a while you may just want to let it rest.
|1 week 5 days ago||Refusing a breathalyzer likely means guilt||
Anyone with half a brain knows to refuse the breathalyzer if pulled over for DUI. If anything that makes me think he's even more likely to be guilty. I get the impulse to wait until the facts come out, but I'm not sure it's going to help anything.

There's no way this isn't a big deal for the guy who is suppossed to be in charge of discipline for the program.
I'd expect there to be a "mutual resignation" before everything plays out. You just can't have this sort of thing happen and let it slide for the person in charge of discipline. A coach may get away with it, but not the Director of operations.
