well that's just, like, your opinion, man

|1 week 3 days ago||Cup Contender||
The problem is that the Wings aren't a Cup contender, and probably won't be for while; they need a wholesale roster makeover. So as long as they're weighed down by those horrible contracts you reference, I say good for Glendening.

I thought you were saying Tyrion at first, which is another apt comparison, as they both are pretty short...

|2 weeks 2 days ago||Shuttle||
Actually, I take that back. Again, assuming that agility is the (20 yard) shuttle, St. Juste's 3.86 s time would have been the 2nd best overall (!) in this year's NFL Combine, and the 7th best overall (!!!) since 2006...
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Agility||
What's crazy about that agility number (which I assume is the shuttle) is that it blows away DPJ's 4.0 s shuttle time from last year.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Talent||
I get that people have PTSD, which seems to be where the "we need to win first" sentiments come from, but on paper this is our most talented team since at least 2006, and by far the best coaching staff. Obviously injuries and bad luck can derail anyone, but when you objectively look at this team in light of the rest of college football, you have to like what you see.
There are roughly eight position groups (OL, QB, RB, WR/TE, DL, LB, DB, ST), and three of those (DL, DB, WR/TE) can make legitimate arguments as top 5 national units, or even top overall. DL and DB have been rehashed to death, and while we might lack proven depth at WR, we have a ton of young talent at TE and I'd put our starting three (Chesson, Darboh, Butt) up against just about anyone's.
LB is unproven but I think there's talent there, especially for Brown's system, and I'm confident we'll at least be decent at QB. OL is where I'm really concerned, and if there's any position that could really derail us, it's there. If the OL can take another step forward and at least be decent (they do have plenty of experience, though some of it is decidely meh), and if Jay and Partridge learned something from Baxter to at least keep ST decent, it's hard not to see us as a top 4 team on paper.

Ikaika Alama-Francis? He was a DE out of Hawaii that the Lions took with the 58th pick. He was hurt most of 2007 but did play in four games, and played in 2008 before being released by the Lions.
Looking through the drafts, I didn't see any first, second or third round picks cut their draft year. There were a couple fourth rounders, though, CB A.J. Davis in 2007 and DE Johnathan Taylor in 2002.

Was that a spoiler? I guess I either missed that, or assumed it was speculation (it wasn't too big of a stretch to assume his days were numbered, especially once he outlawed trial by combat)...
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Anthem||
What "anthem" did the English go with? If I recall correctly, they don't actually have a national anthem. Many people think of God Save the Queen, but that's more akin to our Hail to the Chief than an actual national anthem. If it were up to me I'd go with Rule Britannia, which is pretty badass...
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Bradley||
What's the deal with Bradley? I've seen a bunch of people saying he sucks, and I'm confused because I thought he was supposed to be one of our best players over the past few World Cup cycles. Is he just getting old? Did he fall off a cliff?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Yara||
How sincere do we think Yara was about that? I was a little surprised how quickly she agreed to Dany's terms; "We Do

Looks like your avatar's reacting to the drawing...
|6 weeks 3 days ago||25 Coaches/Personnel||
I'm curious who the 25 Michigan coaches/personnel were. There are 10 actual coaches, so the other 15 seem like they must be pretty much all the QC guys and grad assistants we have...

Have we determined, does umbig11 work for the athletic department? I wouldn't be surprised given his in depth knowledge of seemingly all things ticket related...

Bellatrix? Bellatrix Lestrange? I.e. Helena Bonham Carter? I'm confused...

Nice to see Tormund parlaying his GoT stardom into commercials, but that commercial would have been epic with a Brienne cameo...

Do we have a rooting interest here? I feel like someone had previously said we want to avoid James Madison...
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Caris||
Having Caris would have helped, no doubt, but we still got run off the court by Xavier, UConn and SMU before he went down, similar to the year before when we lost to NJIT and EMU. He wouldn't have papered over all the problems...

Didn't they switch their allegiance to NW at one point?

|8 weeks 4 days ago||Death||
If you had said you dislike the fact that all of your favorite characters get killed (which is my biggest complaint), that would be valid. So would a complaint about Dorne. But GoT's acting is objectively amazing...
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Bran||
I guess I'm a little confused with all the Bran hate. I might be missing something, but what else did Bran cause with his warging? I thought the only two visions he actually influenced were with the white walkers (Night King?) and Hodor...

The announcers have seemed to be pretty good this weekend, but I must say that they like using the phrase long levers, at least with respect to Susalla. Such an odd phrase...

Beautiful shot by Romo. Does she have sole possession of the NCAA grand slam record? I feel like she was tied for the record last year...
