Bill Murray used the term "Cinderella Story" in Caddyshack to refer to an underdog winning. So underdogs are Cinderella. Cinderella went to the ball also known as a dance. Hence, the big dance.

Provided Michigan beats Kansas and Gulf Coast beats Florida, on a scale of 1-10 how crushed would you be if they beat Michigan? Gotta admit it'd be fun to see this team in the final four, no matter how big the dong punch.

I respect him for saying that. Last year was kind of a perfect storm for a tourney loss. Quality wins all year, a B1G share, being almost basket away from a sweet 16 the year before, and an overrated seed that we didn't deserve. I can't really blame them for taking a MAC team lightly. Tourney experience will help the team this year since Trey and Tim and co. will have the idea of how easy it is to go home fresh in their minds.

Can we get a travel call? Evans is dragging his pivot foot. Real bad on the three and the play after.

Another rule: Widen the hoop 3-4 inches in college basketball.
Better rule: add trampolines to college basketball

Not a specific sports-instance for one, but everything this symbolized and reflecting on it now is pretty cool.

I like to remember the Wisconsin game a few years back--the infamous "backboard game." The season seemed lost and everything hopeless, but everyone remembers that season for the tournament (The Eulogy of Bruce Pearl and KICK IT OUT TO STU, DARIUS!). The season's not over and there's still a lot of basketball to be played. Beilein has seen low points in a season and has seen his teams recover well.

1.) I think there are certain SEC programs that 'dirty' recruit players (e.g. "friendly" coeds and the like), but would guess that the number of SEC schools offering cash to players is pretty low and not much above average compared to the rest of the country.
2.)If there was more Ben Franklin handshakes, then I think more people would come forward than just the "he said, she said" stories that are usually passed down through the grapevine. Just one man's opinion

Good teams just find a way to get dirty and outgrit their opponents on the road.
Wait, they're playing Penn State?

Smart 18-year-old. Tweets can get to a kid. Smotrycz handled it pretty well last year, too. It's a lot of pressure for a kid.

Apparently Dawson may have thrown a punch against Purdue. Hard to tell from the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vo-Xtlhhre0&feature=player_embedded
Regardless, fun to read Sparty's justification of it. One guy said that (if it was a punch), it was deserved because of the way the Purdue player played dirty the moment before and Dawson was just doing what anyone would do. Deja Vu, eh?

If confirmed, it would make for a pretty pessimistic offseason for MSU. Please be true.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Criticizing the decision is||
Criticizing the decision is fine (i.e. USC's situation, coach, what would appeal to him about playing there, etc.), but too often people on this site and elsewhere get so caught up in it that they resort to namecalling, putdowns, or wild speculations (e.g. "Michigan is a much better fit for him, School X must be paying him. School X is a bunch of cheaters).
In the end, you may disagree with the presumed reasons that a recruit picked a school, but only the kid and his family know the real reasons and made the decision they felt was best for them. Even if you don't think it was the best for them, you have to respect the decision.

Good luck to him. Can't blow up at every missed recruit
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Not necessarily "rooting".||
Not necessarily "rooting". There's no denying it's good for their program. As far as "learning from mistakes", I am hopeful that the precedent has been set for universities so that nothing like this will happen again in the manner that this took place.
PSU didn't get a slap on the wrist (though if anyone was rooting for the death penalty, then anything would seem minor in comparison). Furthermore, I find the lawsuit to be disappointing, but the university has made it clear that it is not affiliated with it in any way, so I would say that it's fair to assume they university learned their lesson.

He has been in the conversations for a lot of open NFL head coach spots. Per ESPN, he was on the Browns and Eagles short list and had some interest from San Diego and Arizona
