"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

Gotta give Calipari props, though, he brings things to the table that Beilein could never dream of, like NCAA violations...

Worse commercials, yes; papa usually comes off like a douche. But worse pizza? No way in hell. Honestly I think Papa John's is far and away the best of the mainstream delivery chains (better than Hungry Howie's, miles ahead of Domino's and Little Ceasar's). I don't think you find anything better until you get to the gormet chains (CPK) or good local places (Pizza House, etc).

What's the deal with student tickets? Did they go down, and so will students that bought them (returning students had to months ago I think) get a refund on the difference?

Err, I'm not sure how reassuring that is in the end. I mean at least Denard isn't as small as he might seem (I wouldn't have pegged him the same weight as most of those guys, so that's good), the closest comparison there is Bush, and he's not exactly what I think of as a rugged, durable (in the NFL) guy. Honestly I think of Bush as super-athletic (hey, like Denard) but seemingly always dinged up. Ray Rice shouldn't even be listed because that's not even close; 5'9 195 is much lower and more compact than 6'0 197, which isn't surprising as I'd peg Rice as the best and most durable of that bunch. Spiller and to some extent Johnson are more speed than power backs, but at least they (and especially Charles) aren't too far off, which is encouraging.
Honestly though it'd be interesting to compare Denard's weight distribution to Charles, Johnson and Spiller. Maybe they'd be similar, but for whatever reason Denard seems to play higher whereas I think of those guys as having a lower center of mass. At any rate, I'm excited to see what he can do, especially as the Jags continue to add some talent around him.

Eh, this is kind of one of those can't lose either way games. If Brazil wins, then revel in Mexico's misery. If Mexico pulls it off, revel in watching the world burn...

Dead at 52. Should be a reminder to anyone considering dipping just how bad it is for you (if the fact it contains fiberglass, on purpose, wasn't enough)...

The distinction there is desire; I really hope both Gallon and Roundtree wanted the jersey, similar to Devin, Kovacs, Avery, etc. There weren't any problems originally, since Hemingway was already wearing 21. It's when guys start changing, every season sometimes, that I can see problems. Gallon in particular didn't look very thrilled with it, despite saying all the right things. That's the biggest difference with Braylon; Braylon lobbied HARD for the 1, and even had to wait a year and prove himself to get it. If a guy feels that way about one of the legends jerseys, I'm 100% behind it. But if you're forcing it on someone just so it's out there every year, that's what I (and I'd presume a number of those less enthusiastic about them) have issues with.

I've been registered for awhile now, and I few years back said it looked like I had a match. They overnighted me a styrofoam cooler with empty vials and a huge dry ice pack, I got blood drawn at the hospital and sent it back. And then I got a message saying something about the donee wasn't ready or something like that. Can't explain how depressing that was, after being so stoked to donate and help someone. Obviously I hope that meant things were going well, but part of me still hopes that I'll be called upon (if not for that person, than someone else)...

We definitely got hosed on the group seeding; they apparently outsourced the process to the same people that do the NBA draft lottery...
Honestly I think it'll be us vs. Portugal duking it out for second. Lose (or probably even draw) Ghana and we're done; beat Ghana and it'll all come down to the Portugal game.
The interesting thing is looking at the bracket as a whole. We got what was in my opinion by far the hardest group, but looking at the other groups and their bracket slots should we get that #2 spot it looks like a fairly easy (comparitively) route to the quarters. Even looking farther, Germany/Portugal looks like a much harder set of games than Argentina/Belgium(?!?). Btw, who did Belgium have to blow to get their group? Russia (18 FIFA/14 ELO), Algeria (25 FIFA/52 ELO) and South Korea (55 FIFA/42 ELO); wtf...

Bloodbath McGrath is the first thing that comes to mind when I hear his name. Wonder if his recruitment to Mississippi State went anything like this?
