|22 hours 43 min ago||I've been around these parts||
I've been around these parts for six or seven years, four as a poster. Look at my posting record even just two days ago, you'd realize you couldn't be more wrong. To be perfectly honest I hate Michigan State more than I hate Ohio State based on the fact that I've known so many more irritating Sparty fans. I'm just sick of the Internet mob and its unrelenting judgement, often rooted in biases.

And for that, the state of Michigan stripped him of his right for concealed weapons permits. The school stripped him of his scholarship, and he and his family are now scrambling to come up with the $40,000 for him to secure his degree. Look, I root against Sparty on Saturdays, but if you really read about this kid's story and don't think he deserve a second chance you are a heartless homer.

I'm not arguing on behalf of all discipline handed down by Mark Dantonio. Frankly I don't follow these stories all that much. I do get annoyed when we as Michigan fans look down from our ivory tower like we weren't in the top 20 in college football in arrests in the last five years. Our coaches may historically be more principled in their discipline, but our program isn't immune to atrocious behavior from its players.

Williams' brother got shot and killed last year, so he got a concealed weapon permit (making it legal to have the gun within reach rather than in the trunk). It's not like he got out of the car and pointed it at the other driver. He made the foolish choice of making it visible to the driver behind him.
As for comparing it to a DUI, not all DUI's are created equal either. If someone is driving in the gray-area (.06-.1 BAC) and happens to be on the wrong side of .08, I always think about that differently than those that are .15+ and clearly trashed. The difference between a poor, regrettable decision and very seriously putting your own and other's lives at risk.

Know one of the cops called to the scene and he said this particular situation is overblown and out of context. Supposedly a pretty good kid without a blemish to his name.

One of my favorites of this series, always interested to hear more in-depth stories from before my time. That being said... I can't wait until this series consists of his coaching exploits at Michigan. I'll see myself out.

The Michigan State section of the EDSBS Big Ten post was laugh out loud funny.

Couldn't have happened to a more mediocre, self-righteous sports blog. They did give us the Manti Te'o story though.

|1 week 2 days ago||The number of Michigan||
The number of Michigan players is less a factor of homerism and more a factor of increased knowledge of the deeper players and breakout candidates than with other schools.

Our defense could end up better than 28th, would be extremely pleased if the offense were 27th

Fowler was a legend of the business, sad to see him move off Gameday. As tacky and at times SEC-loving as ESPN can be, no pregame/studio show in sports is as fun as College Gameday. Rece Davis will be fine I'm sure, but it's disappointing that we're hitting the end of an era.

Peaked at 2 Shark 2 Nado or whatever it was called. This whole SyFy Event Movie jumped the... uhh... you know.

What makes you fear a week 6 home date with Northwestern over a road opener against Utah?

I think 1-3 are fairly obvious, as are 10-12. The middle part is somewhat arguable.

They just repeated last year's order, making changes only to account for trades and swaps of picks.

Agreed. I love Caris but he's not a primary, or secondary, NBA scorer. He's got a chance to be a strong role player on a contending team if he can develop into a good 3-and-D wing.

MCW got a ROY for putting up empty stats for a historically inept team with a historically weak draft class.

I'm more into some uniformz than most but these are a clean downgrade and alums/fans of the U are depressed about the move away from Nike

While it makes far more sense for all UM teams and apparel to match with the same official maize, I will miss the electric yellow basketball jerseys. I might be in the minority on this, but the bright shade on the players and on the maize rage in the stands looked great and really popped on TV.

True, and he's played in hostile environments before. HOWEVA, just a few weeks of actual practice in a new system and chemistry with new teammates makes that a scary thought still. This one probably should be down to about Utah -2.5 or -3 during game week.

Harbaugh didn't give Colin much, but Cowherd frequently didn't even give him a chance to answer his uninteresting questions.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||It's actually refreshing to||
It's actually refreshing to see one of top 5 guys properly valued during his prime. The problem with NBA contracts historically is that stars tend to be underpaid until they get off their rookie extensions at age 27-30 and sign a long term max deal they're rarely worth by the end.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I'd bet only reason Trey is||
I'd bet only reason Trey is moved to Miami is for cap relief. Heat are looking to move Chris Andersen and Mario Chalmers to free up additional money to offer Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic and mitigate their tax bill. Burke would compete for backup PG duties with Shabazz Napier, not an ideal situation for him.

THJ didn't blow the doors off, but how can you say he got worse? His efficiency dropped a little, but playing alongside such an inept roster can do that to you. Nobody is confusing him to be a 20 point scorer anyway. His destiny on a contending team is as a scoring wing off the bench, although his ceiling would rise if he can improve as a defender (not counting on it).
His streaky jumper and athleticism in the open floor are at least NBA-level, which is more than can be said of Burke's skillset thus far. It would be extremely beneficial for THJ to get moved to a better organization where he can learn from a veteran coach and successful wing players.

That potential young core would be interesting:
PG - Jackson
The Josh Smith cap hit is a tough pill to swallow (despite being a good move), but with so many key players on rookie deals, there should be space to bolster the bench.

Sorry about that. Any Wolverines under 30 didn't really get to experience that group. Woodson is my other one. My personal Michigan memories start in about 2000 watching games with my dad. I was hooked for life in 2004 by Braylon.
