No depth though.

I generally expect it to relate to the fomer Michigan swimmer and 1976 Olympic bronze medalist of that name. I am old.

the minor was not aware that the defendant was a police officer, so the "position of authority" concept was not present.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||I think replay speeds up the game in baseball||
Before replay, managers would come out and argue the calls for no real benefit, other than "working the umps." The first year of replay, the managers would come out and argue like before , stalling for time while the bench coaches would check the replay. Soon enough, they all figured out they didn't need to go through that charade and the umps let the benches take a little while to diecide whether to challenge or not.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Numbers in chart are not correct||
The data is not correct, though Michigan still leads for most 1st round picks. Michigan has 25, Indiana 23 (not 21), Ohio St. has 22 (not 17) and Maryland has 18 (not 15). I didn't double check MSU.
My source was http://www.databasebasketball.com/draft/draftfirst.htm?lg=N for draft through 2011, then went to Wikipedia for 2012-16 which meant adding Alex Len for Maryland, Victor Oladipo, Cody Zeller and Noah Vonleh for Indiana and JJ Sullinger and DeAngelo Russell for Ohio State.

Tom Cheney of the Washington Senators struck out 21 Orioles in a 16 inning game in 1962.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Having lived in American Samoa for 3 years||
I agree. The biggest benefit will be for recruiting players in the 50 states that are of Polynesian descent. There are very few D-I players that actually played HS football in American Samoa. Nearly all of the Samoan NFL and D-I players went to HS in Hawaii or on the mainland, though there are a few exceptions.

|20 weeks 5 days ago||baseball is better choice by far||
Even without CTE issues, baseball should be first choice. Jeff Samardzifa and Calvin Johnson were all-American receivers the same year. With Samardzija's guaranteed contract, he will make more over his entire career as a middling starter than Megatron (surefire HOF) made over his, not counting the possibility of another contract for Samardzija when the current one expires.

|29 weeks 6 days ago||RPI source?||
What is your source for RPI, Ace? Warrennolan.com shows Penn State at 98 and NCSU at 111 (with Michigan at 56).

He also tripped a Louisville player. Refs saw that one and gave him a flagrant.
|33 weeks 1 hour ago||for the record||
Orr's 1977 team went to Elite 8, losing to UNCC after beating Dick Vitale's UD team in sweet sixteen. I also am of the opinion that Beilein's seat should not even be warm based on what he has done.

He transferred to Oral Roberts. ORU played at USC shortly before the 1977 Rose Bowl and another Daily sports staffer and I went to see him play. I don't remember much about that game other than we chatted with him briefly after the game.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Same era different game||
The 1974 win at Crisler over Indiana was the biggest home win that I can recall. Knight had a powerhouse with seniors Steve Green and John Laskowski in addtion to the guys that would later go undefeated - sophs Scott May, Quinn Buckner, Bob Wilkerson and Tom Abernethy and Freshman Kent Benson. Michigan was led by juniors Campy Russell, CJ Kupec and Joe Johson. Freshman Steve Grote started at one guard and Wayman Britt had just recently been inserted into the starting lineup in place of Bill Ayler. Michigan was coming off a disappointing year with Campy joining celebrated seniors such as Henry Wilmore and Ken Brady finished with a losing record in the conference. The "Dump Orr" party almost won the student government election that fall. Indiana led 41-26 (I think at halftime), but Michigan chipped away the whole second half with a major contribution coming from freshman Lionel "Main Train" Worrell (he had been recruited off the playgrounds of Newark the summer before enrolling). Finally, Michigan caught the Hoosiers at the end, winning 73-71. The Hoosers beat Michigan by 12 in Bloomington. The two teams tied for the Big Ten title at 12-2 (Michigan lost at Purdue and Indiana lost at Columbus). This meant a third matchup in Champaign in a playoff for the conference's only NCAA bid. Michigan won again and went on to beat the same Notre Dame team that had snapped UCLA's 88 game winning streak earlier that season, before falling to Marquette in the Elite 8.

Spurrier played for Florida, not Tennessee, though I believe he is from Eastern Tennessee.
|43 weeks 6 days ago||Lloyd's last class (2007)||
Lloyd's last class (2007) didn't have a single player from Ohio. And there weren't a lot in the previous years' classes.
|44 weeks 46 min ago||Wormley||
Wormley is not in the list above, though he is a senior with a remaining year of eligibility. The roster shows him as a senior as you describe.
|44 weeks 51 min ago||You're right. He also does||
You're right. He also does mention that there are ten times as many Samoans in the states than there are in American Samoa. So it would be expected that most of the Samoan football players would not actually be from Samoa.

You are correct, Houma is of Tongan descent
|44 weeks 2 hours ago||I lived in American Samoa for 3 years||
I lived in American Samoa for 3 years and enjoy reading these articles, but it is a little misleading. There are only 2 current players in the NFL that were actually born in Samoa and neither played HS football there. Of the 29 players in NFL history (per sportsreference.com) that were born in American Samoa, only 5 of those 29 played high school football in Samoa. There are now more D-I players from Samoan high schools than there used to be, but it is still relatively rare. The vast majority of the Polynesian college players grew up in Hawaii and the mainland (California, Washington and Utah primarily.) The Mormons have a huge presence in Samoa and many of the ethnic Samoans in the States are Mormon.
