"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."

I have a college fantasy league set up through Fantrax. Need another 9 people for it. Let me know if you're in! CBS Sports scoring rules, all FBS teams.

Yeah, I have a basketball one on right now. Need to get me some football on my desktop.

There's only 4 FF banners, but there's also only 1 B1G Champion. Michigan can't go out there and win multiple conferences. Winning conference requires being consistently good for months and 15+ games, while getting to the Final Four requires a combination of skill, luck, and being hot at the right time for a month, for 6 games.
Final Four > winning most conferences
winning the B1G > Final Four

They cut nets if they win today? I think that's kinda dumb, actually...

Also, any staff member can take classes at the university. That doesn't mean they have the same status as any student, athlete or not.

Even if your logic were sound, coaches are not full-time students. Gotta get up to 12 credits for that. Within your framework that is the difference.
|30 weeks 7 hours ago||I'm sorry but I just can't||
I'm sorry but I just can't judge "good basketball" based on a 7 point loss to Florida, and beating teams that are not up to par. Vandy, Auburn, Mizzou...three teams they dismantled, three teams that are not very good. They beat South Carolina in the SEC tourney, then lost to Florida. Then who have they played in the tournament so far?
Iowa: has been in a downward spiral for the last month or more
UMass: not as good as their 6-seed indicated. Odds had the winner of Iowa/UT favored for that game
Mercer: clearly not a good team; they just happened to have a good day when Duke had a poor day
Based on this...I can't say they're "playing great basketball right now." We've had one loss in that same time span as well, though against much better competition overall.

He won't be ready for September? He should be able to...isn't the timeline for ACLs like 3-4 weeks nowadays? /s

As a Patriots fan I do have a soft spot for Mike Vrabel. Then again, I was a Pats fan before I became a Michigan fan in 2007.
Also, along the same lines, as a Bruins fan it's a bit annoying having Bartkowski (Ohio) and Krug (MSU) on our team, but I definitely won't complain if they score for us. Cheer when they score, and then mutter a well-placed "Fuck Ohio" or "Fuck State"...that's how I tell myself it's ok.

I think anything less than 31 wins is not good enough and should get him fired.

Wow...strong Red Sox hate here. Does anyone realize that we have Boston fans here as well? I understand the majority of the board is going to be pro-Tigers, but there's no need to call us a "moronic prick fanbase". It makes you look like a moron, OP.
That said, go Sox!

|1 year 5 weeks ago||That's the thing||
That's the thing though...there weren't 107,000 crazy fans when they walked out at first. Might have been there by the end of the game, but frankly the rest of the student section needs to show up. That was hands down the worst showing I've ever seen at the student section. I understand it was magnified because of the new seating policy, but students need to be there on time. That was just embarrasing on AND off the field, and students should be ashamed of putting up such a lousy showing for kickoff.
