|2 days 20 hours ago||They'll pass legislation||
They'll pass legislation requiring players to pay for the trips themselves, while staying as complimentary guests of the NCAA at the annual convention.
|2 days 20 hours ago||The Ligue 1 race is still||
The Ligue 1 race is still tight: PSG just won to move into first place (80 points), but Monaco (77 points) has two games in hand and takes on Lyon tomorrow. Both PSG/Monaco are on long winning streaks.
I'd like to see Monaco win the league but wonder if the added grind of Champions' League play may catch up to them.

Here comes an NCAA rule for 2018: "Football coaches may not have contact with leaders of major world religions..."
|3 days 16 hours ago||In Arles, France, I visited||
In Arles, France, I visited the Roman arena, which is almost 2,000 years old and yet incredibly is still in use for concerts and bullfighting. That was absolutely mindblowing.
And back home, pro sports stadiums in the U.S. now seem to have a shelf life of about 30 years.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Two truths||
To an American, 100 years is a long time.
To a European, 100 miles is a long distance.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Maybe those should be called||
Maybe those should be called "team" wins, like team rushes/passes in football and team rebounds in basketball - don't give any individual player responsibility.
|4 days 14 hours ago||The problem is that||
The problem is that everything seems boring, now that technology has destroyed our ablity to pay attention to anything that lasts longer than a Vine video.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Beat England, or Germany,||
One of these is not like the others...
|5 days 2 hours ago||You know it was a different||
You know it was a different era when the dogs were named after adult beverages.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Actually we won the Big Ten||
Actually we won the Big Ten in 1990 anyway (though we didn't go to Pasadena).
|5 days 14 hours ago||Monaco's dream season||
Monaco's dream season (they are also in 1st place in Ligue 1) continues. They're one of the most fun teams to watch and probably won't keep the roster together after this year, so I'm pulling for them to win it all. Allez l'ASM !
|1 week 17 hours ago||Peters looks good, and just||
Peters looks good, and just might win the job, but let's not act like Speight was this hugely mistake-prone guy all year. He threw what, seven picks in 13 games?
|1 week 18 hours ago||Wut||
Other than that brief period where Denard was a Heisman candidate, RichRod's tenure was about as fun as a root canal.
Hoke's first year was fun; the rest of his tenure, not so much.
|1 week 2 days ago||The PA announcer shouldn't||
The PA announcer shouldn't make that mistake though. I don't remember him ever calling him that before, so it was odd.
I'm still a big Grapentine fan overall, to be clear.
|1 week 2 days ago||Run game looked great - but||
Run game looked great - but does that mean run D needs work? Passing game was iffy but there I attribute it to the DL/DBs looking really good, as well as the wind. Agree that it looks like a budding QB controversy.
|1 week 2 days ago||Did Grapentine keep calling||
Did Grapentine keep calling him "Isaacs" or was I hearing things?
|1 week 3 days ago||And The Force Awakens?||
And The Force Awakens?
|1 week 3 days ago||Well duh. Moose antlers are||
Moose antlers are lightsaber-resistant. Everyone knows that, man.
|1 week 3 days ago||I think of it more like moose||
I think of it more like moose and moose.
|1 week 3 days ago||I like Michigan to cover.||
I like Michigan to cover.
|1 week 3 days ago||Yeah. Still think it's||
Yeah. Still think it's interesting though. From the English title alone I would have assumed the singular.
|1 week 3 days ago||Interestingly, the name of||
Interestingly, the name of the film in French and Spanish gives away a plot detail that its English name does not.
|1 week 3 days ago||Yeah, it would have been more||
Yeah, it would have been more accessible to visitors that way. Oh well.
|1 week 4 days ago||Very cool links! Those are||
Very cool links! Those are indeed better than the ones I found.
|1 week 4 days ago||You may want to re-read the||
You may want to re-read the headline again. Trey was always a starter.
|1 week 4 days ago||You think you're better than||
You think you're better than us or something?
|1 week 4 days ago||Those were our best uniforms||
Those were our best uniforms in the post-Fab Five era. Even if the yellow was a tad too bright.
|1 week 4 days ago||Aw, it's fine. Just think of||
Aw, it's fine. Just think of those all-Big Ten teams that have two tailbacks, four cornerbacks , three left tackles and four defensive ends on them.

Didn't Bill Self later deny seeing the dick punch? The gif tells another story.
