"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 get him one of those OG Terry Steinbach jaw extension-things for his helmet...

Wait, so the USBWA named him their District V Player of the year over the kid from Cincinnati, but the kid from Cincinnati was named a USBWA All-America (2nd Team) and Stauskas wasn't? How, exactly, does that make sense?

Chicago, Green Bay, the Twin Cities
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Yep.||
Michigan's two biggest rivals both contain the word "State." Fans naturally talk about their rivals. I don't get why this is a big deal...

|21 weeks 5 days ago||Joe D||
As a 35-year old Bulls fan who spent his formative years loathing the Bad Boys, watching Joe D run the Pistons into the ground over the past ten years has been quite enjoyable. And yes, I apologize for the dickishness of this comment. Sort of.

Think I read that the current rate for 1.0 WAR on the open market is about $6 million, meaning Choo's only gotta be a three win player to be worth his annual salary...

Congratulations, Brendan Gibbons!

Seeing, like, 20 sideline shots of Denard made me sad. I miss his musk...

I guess, the fact of the matter is, in the present, no one accepts losing any game ever. In the future it's fine, it's realistic to a degree, but in the present it's never something that should happen. Likely, it's because in the present we get too caught up in the finite (down to a play here or a play there, but also game to game) and often lose sight of the big picture.
...that is goddamn brilliant. I'm stealing the hell outta this when I talk sports with my buddies. Well done.

If Gibbons hits a 40 or 33 yard kick, UM wins. Sometimes, the best team doesn't win. Yes, it sucks. Yes, we're still moving in the right direction. Chill the f*ck out. Nothing worth having ever comes easy.
P.S. I'm also an A's fan. It's been a "glass half full" kinda week.

Totally agree with saveferris--it's a fumbled snap with 22 bodies mashed into a pile. Refs gave it their best guess, which is all you can ask of them. Buckeyes win. Bummer.
On the positive side, I can't wait until Braxton Miller has to return his July Heisman. Gonna be totally awkard.

Didn't the Dodgers just announce a $7 billion rights deal with Time Warner this past winter? $30 million a season for Cano is walking-around money for them.

...not "big" enough for you? Dude went to a Super Bowl with a combination of Rex Grossman & Kyle Orton taking snaps. Seriously. That happened. It's on the internet and everything.

Amen, brother. My bottle of Chivas 18 didn't stand a chance, either.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||62 First-Team votes...||
Every year, when baseball announces its HOF inductees, I have a buddy who always says, "If you don't vote for someone who receives 95% of the vote, you should lose your ballot for five years since you're clearly wrong. Yes, your opinion is wrong." I bring this up since three people who apparently watch/write about college basketball for a living didn't think Trey Burke was one of the best five players in the country this season. I'm speechless.
