Apparently Izzo would've left MSU to coach the Cavs if LeBron had committed to staying in 2010. Well...this Laker team ain't that. He's Sparty until he chooses to retire.

A lot of the "directionals" are very successful at 1-AA football. Northern Iowa, Eastern Illinois, Eastern Kentucky, Eastern Washington etc. all compete at a level I expect EMU would be able to. The stadium is way too big and I don't know if there is a precedent for shrinking a stadium, but I think competing in the MVFC or a similar league would be a good idea.

Interesting how 3/8 of the rage GIFs came from a game we won 41-7.

I am a pop culture fiend and am usually up to date on most shows, but I've only watched 1.5 episodes of Game of Thrones and don't get the hubbub.

They are a strong FCS team. If most P5 teams are going to play one a year, you could do a lot worse.

When exactly does this run until? I watched the first few episodes of Billions on Showtime with friends but I don't get Showtime and would love to watch it this week. This may actually be the first time I'm pleased with Comcast.

Just like the folks complaining about Beilein's 3 year tourney drought (last year, this year and next) before we beat Indiana. There are almost five months until this season starts and you're already writing off the last game of next season...get over yourself.

Don Brown has never coached a defense with anywhere near the talent and depth he is going to work with this year

FS1 is in very dire straits, losing money and talent hand over fist. They need Michigan on their air very badly.
|1 week 2 days ago||Rivals has always been a||
Rivals has always been a second-rate recruiting site. The contacts the Scout writers have, especially Webb, are much stronger and have a much higher rate of accuracy. In terms of raw content, Scout is better and in terms of cool features/user experience, 247 is better, so Rivals is going to get squeezed out soon if they don't improve.

There was a great graphic earlier this year, prior to signing day, with the top 10 recruits in NJ. I think 6 were committed to Michigan, 2 or 3 to MSU, one to a Tennessee and the uncommitted one was Rashan Gary. Lol

Mike Pressler's alma mater is Washington and Lee, a D3 school in Virginia, and he is now coaching at Bryant, a D1 school in Rhode Island. Anyone who saw the 60 Minutes about him would say he's probably never leaving there. HOWEVA, he is Connecticut born and bred so maybe there's a relationship with Warde, and the chance to take over a relatively new program with a shiny new facility on the way may be tempting. I'd hope Manuel at least makes that call.

As far as I'm concerned, Finebaum has about as much credibility as Ace Williams

The commenters on that site are truly some of the worst the internet has to offer

Happy Gilmore is great because it was a young Adam Sandler who didn't care about being deep or being taken seriously. It's just funny, though not a classicly fine film it's one I always like watching.

Wait, are you saying Harbaugh is Brian Cook?

The SEC is going to regret this. Harbaugh doesn't even need to send a passive-aggressive tweet and his point will be made for him by the thousands this BS ruling hurts. It's gonna be a ton of egg on the NCAAs face. Already is.

Where do you live? As much as UM housing says it's random, it's no coincidence that the "Hill dorms" are heavily East Coast/suburban, North Campus has a lot of international students and so on. There is some consideration of who your child is and where they are from. I'd say you are going about it the right way, though, because trying to game the system has backfired on many people I know.

|3 weeks 7 hours ago||I don't think the B1G||
I don't think the B1G reputation took a hit at all. There isn't a person outside of East Lansing who felt MSU should've even been on the same field as Bama, and most are in agreement that OSU would've performed much better in such a matchup. And the B1G is definitely considered a stronger conference than the Big 12 at this point. Say what you will about the media swaying the teams chosen, but even if that is true, an undefeated, Jim Harbaugh-coached UM team is every bit as attractive as the top SEC teams.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||One benefit to UM fans of the||
One benefit to UM fans of the CFP is that we really don't need to care about strength of schedule. If we go undefeated, we are in no matter what. If we have one loss yet win the B1G championship game, we are still very likely in, especially if that loss comes early in the season. Two losses, we are out.

Sort of. We don't need MSU to be better, we need the B1G as a whole to be better. Wisconsin hiring a great staff and the addition of ND should allow our schedule strength to be where it needs to be and MSU to keep on keeping on. Who says you can't have it all?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||That is an incredibly||
That is an incredibly simplistic, uninformed and ignorant take. There are more entitled trust fund kinds from the Detroit suburbs and Chicagoland at UM than from NY, NJ and CT combined. And most rich kids coming from out of state are nothing but positive contributors to campus life.

They still brand their jerseys with the swoosh for all Nike schools. OSU, PSU, Sparty et al all wore Nike for hockey this year

Max did nothing to earn a 5th year at Michigan. Kudos to him and IU's staff for improving a ton in this offseason, but nothing in his first 4 years indicated he would be more than a 5 minutes a game guy this year. Scholarships are not the issue either, as we've established he is from a family of significant financial means. Indiana offered a fresh start and the probability of more playing time than he was going to get here.
And re: Beilein being bitter, absolutely not. His comment is all about mid-majors getting their guys stolen out from under them after working hard to develop them from no-star recruits to NBA prospects. Michigan is not a mid-major.
|6 weeks 9 hours ago||Exactly, thank you. It isn't||
Exactly, thank you. It isn't mine (or yours) decision to make whether Michigan won a tournament game last night, we did. The Sparty aspect is trying to go back and say it doesn't count because (fill in the blank).
|6 weeks 13 hours ago||You are really on some type||
You are really on some type of crusade today buddy, do they not celebrate St Pattys in Australia? The first four is part of the tournament, and the first round which we will play in on Friday was known as the second round for the past few years since the tournament moved to 68 teams. You can try and discredit a tourney win that the NCAA recognizes, but honestly that just makes you sound like a Sparty fan.
