|6 days 20 hours ago||hope it goes well||
As a cancer survivor myself (treated in 2001 and 2002 at the UM hospital) I entirely agree with F*CK CANCER. I hope they caught it early and that it hasn't spread at all.

The series (tv or books) couldn't plausibly end with Ramsay becoming king, because he is too brutal and erratic to hold onto power. He'd most likely be done in by his own subordinates before too long, just as Caligula was.

Did she get a medical redshirt for this year? She appeared in 7 games early in the season.
|1 week 4 days ago||good summary||
Cal is the other team I follow, having spent 4 years there before my 9 years at M. Cal this year is basically M without Betsa and Wagner. It's about as hard to score 6 runs per game in the Pac as it is to get 8 runs a game in the B1G, but Cal's pitchers are just serviceable whereas M's are elite.
|1 week 5 days ago||the problem||
is that white isn't one of our colors. It's a Sparty color. That uniform doesn't look bad, but it isn't right for us.

most MICHIGAN thing I ever did: drive from Ann Arbor to Tampa for the Outback Bowl after the 2002 season.

Translation: "I got nothing." You'd think that someone used to speaking to the media could come up with a better response than that.

was offed at his uncle Ed's wedding, not his own. Joffrey bought the farm at his own wedding.

Whitlock comes off as a megalomaniac control freak like Fidel Castro.

"University of Wisconsin" was technically correct in her case, but it's misleading. Probably 99% of people outside the state would assume that "University of Wisconsin" means the Madison campus.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||UC campuses||
All of the UC campuses are under a single set of regents, unlike UM and MSU which have their own regents (or trustees, as MSU calls them).
|5 weeks 5 days ago||mostly agree||
But on the list of core goals, 1a (if not 1) has to be to avoid scandals and not embarrass the university. Penn State didn't have a problem with graduating players or winning games.

If you're going to troll, at least try to be entertaining.

Excluding people I knew personally, I'd go with Ritter. She was the key player on the first cold-weather team to break through and win a softball title.
That said, I would consider both baseball and softball to be minor sports because they draw crowds in the hundreds and don't get much media attention. To me, hockey and women's basketball are on the fence between major and minor.

I think I had him second behind Henry. He probably has a lower ceiling than most of the others, but I put more weight on performance to date than on potential. I put Lewis ahead of Peppers too.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||we have crazy depth there||
I'd expect all 6 of those guys to play more (if healthy) than all but the top 2 or 3 who are listed at DE. I'd expect 3 of them to be in the game when we run the 3-4ish defense they were talking about.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||I just got my Sparty co-worker||
I told him that Dantonio was going to retire at the end of next season.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||white is awful||
It's a Sparty color. We should wear as little white as possible.
Blue pants on the road might not be too bad, but not at home. Monochrome doesn't look good.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||ok||
It's always ok to wear a jersey to a game or to a bar/house party/whatever to watch a game, even if you're Henry Kissinger.
If you're over 30, you shouldn't wear a jersey in other circumstances.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||come on||
I agree that we should use the players' last names, but M has just one player named Tera and one named Kelly.

A major douchebag. Or alternatively, a regular douchebag who lives in Maryland.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||I thought so too||
I ended up a couple seats away from him at a b-ball game in 2000 or so. He really gets into it, although he also seemed to think that almost any play with contact was a foul on the other team.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Jennie Ritter?||
I was at UM from 1998-05 and followed the softball team fairly closely. We never had a position player as dominant as Romero in those years. Ritter was a pitcher.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||yeah||
In the past there have been some issues on this website (mostly related to football) with writers using too many in-joke type references that go right over the heads of people who aren't regular readers. We like to think of this site as a community, but it's also good to grow the community by making it accessible to new people.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||in that case||
I would give Speight the garbage time snaps and redshirt Morris unless Rudock gets hurt. He was not ready to contribute at the end of last season. Maybe with an extra year in the program, he'll be able to contribute in 2016 and 2017.
Now if Rudock gets hurt, the best available guy should play even if it means burning a redshirt.

so there are plenty of teams a lot worse than they are.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||losses||
2 to Long Beach St 2 weeks ago (M won the last game of the series), then last week to Tenn Tech (who M also beat once) and twice to Davidson.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||That one is Navy||
The one they did for ND was ridiculous, two-tone green and white with an oversized leprechaun on it. Neither of ND's actual colors, and a lame logo with way too much detail.
I liked the Oregon State helmet, but most of them are weak. Never add gray'silver to a team that doesn't have it as one of their official colors.

It's just sugar, grease, and chemicals. I always turn the cake sideways and cut the frosting off with a knife.
