Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

As someone who played D-III soccer at a high-ish level a decade ago, we had a couple D-I kids transfer in during my four years. IIRC, they didn't have to sit a year since they were "transferring down." Wonder why they would make a kid sit a year for "transferring up." Kinda similiar to what JUCO kids do, right?

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?

|20 weeks 6 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...

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.

Amen, brother. My bottle of Chivas 18 didn't stand a chance, either.
|1 year 17 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.
