"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Glad I'm not the only one who just went on the hunt for the elusive Paterno cat. I thought theses were oddly appropriate
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Sad||
This is a very awesome gesture from everyone in the athletic department, which makes it difficult to rag on, but it's extremely sad that's it's come to a point that something like this needed to happen. I would imagine most schools do this only in very rare circumstances, such as when you lose a team member or on their way to the national championship game, not simply when your hc and ad have had their names dragged through the mud all week.

Still holding strong
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Spoiler Alert:||
Mgoblog posts a game recap pretty soon after the game ends. Avoid mgoblog and the entire Internet if you are dvr'ing a game.
ps - count yourself lucky you didn't have to watch that

Too bad there's not something like the medical redshirt process for this kid to be able to restore his eligibility at Baylor. Let the kid finish out his career.

|25 weeks 5 days ago||I think your example||
I think your example demonstrates exactly why separate bargaining units would be necessary. Generally, the appropriateness of a bargaining unit is determined on the basis of a community of interest of the employees involved. Those who have the same or substantially similar interests concerning wages, hours, and working conditions are grouped together in a bargaining unit. The disparity of the interests between the different groups would likely require different units. The football players would object to being lumped in with "employees" with such less bargaining strength. The whole idea behind unit determination is grouping people into groups that have as much in common as possible.

The reporters questions aren't as inane as they appear. She makes a valid point. The various athletes obviously have differing interests and differing bargaining strengths such that different bargaining units will have to be created. Each of those bargaining units will have to negotiate individual cba's which will result in different provisions over all sorts of different terms and conditions of "employment" for all these different groups. For example, the tennis players whose facilities are located off campus will be highly interested in transportation to their facilities while the football players won't care as much about certain issues. If you lump all the players together under a single cba, the only athletes whose concerns will be addressed are the football and basketball players due to their greater relevance.

For a new handle
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Sandwiches||
With all due respect to the board's sandwich/subs(!) obsession, which I absolutely share, the thing that stuck out to me about this interview is how genuinely excited Hand seems to be about Michigan and his UTL2 trip. Everything I read about the kid says how level and even-keel he is in interviews and how he plays things close to the vest, never tipping any sort of preference (other than in the epic Ohio GIF). Listening to this interview, I heard a kid who is flat out ecstatic about the trip he had and everything the school has to offer.

|1 year 15 weeks ago||GRIII||
GRIII's assist-heavy pie chart from last year is largely a result of having the ball in the hands of the country's best creator and distributor for the vast majority of our offensive possessions. Without Burke this year, GRIII is going to be asked to create a heck of a lot more than last year. I can't wait to see what GRIII's got in store.

I wonder what's happened in the last 15 hours:
|1 year 19 weeks ago||This is just how Ohio reacts to things at their school||
First, something bad happens (December 5). Then, months later, someone at the school finds out about it, and marginally punishes the wrongdoer, if any discipline is even issued (March 11). Then, when news becomes public and dominates the headlines even more months later, school then reacts as it should have in the first place. (June 4)
Ohio dots the "i" with integrity...
|1 year 20 weeks ago||anything||
Honeslty, try anything with a CA label. You're most likely to find Stone and Lagunitas. Sierra Nevada, obviously, as well, but you won't usually see their more rare beers. If you can find some Bear Republic Racer 5, snatch it up, Green Flash might make it out there and is well worth it. Knee Deep is going to go national in the next few months - they make some pretty popular double and triple IPA's (Hoptoligist, Belgo Hoptologist, Hop Shortage, Simtra).
|1 year 20 weeks ago||sold out||
this event's been sold out for some time
|1 year 20 weeks ago||yea||
I would prefer to go to a local tap takeover or beer week event where they are more likely to break out the rare stuff than go to the $50 dollar per head beerfests that they just bring the same stuff you find at BevMo or even the supermarket. But this event is no ordinary beerfest - this is a primo event that attracts the topbrewers in the country. Cheers to you for going - have an awesome awesome time.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Rare CA beer||
I'm also in CA, but some of those CA items are pretty rare, such as the Kern River Citra DIPA - supposed to be one of the best DIPA's up there with Pliny and Heady Topper. Also Stone's Tropical Ruination (mango and habanero) should be awesome and I've had the double dry-hopped Levitation - that's some damn good stuff. I would bet Firestone will break out some awesome rare stuff too and would be sure to try everything they have that you haven't seen on a shelf out here.

The one review of that recipe is well worth the read
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Sad||
Obviously the humor of this joke wore out a long time ago. I think the real commentary here is that its a real crappy way to may a guy feel welcome on his new team and in his new city. Great work media!

I suddenly can't shake the image of camera pans to Dan Dakich sitting in the stands with a Michigan beanie on his head.

Deep down we would know that its super lame, just like you do. Might we also refuse to openly acknowledge it, like you, possibly.

I have never watched so much postgame coverage in my life. It's the same thing over and over and over again but its still real to me damnit!
