|3 days 4 hours ago||Shane Morris' stats in HS were underwhelming as well||
But in college, he... well...oh forget it. I wish my point had some evidentiary support.
|4 days 4 hours ago||So...||
if every source that doesn't support your point of view is a priori dismissed as biased, what is there to discuss? What's the source for saying almost no one studies it without an agenda? What if the agenda is "let's find out the answer to the question of whether rape is disproportionately common among fraternity men compared to non-frat counterparts on campus"?
Rape is inherently tough to study, no doubt. But there is plenty of peer-reviewed academic literature out there in the journals supporting the basic premise that rape is more likely by fraternity-associated men than other college men.
Three minutes of Googling netted this paper: Foubert, J. D., Newberry, J. T., & Tatum, J. L. (2007). Behavior differences seven months later: Effects of a rape prevention program on first-year men who join fraternities. NASPA Journal, 44, 728-749.
which cites to a couple of studies, mentioned in this passage:
Among men on college campuses, fraternity men are more likely to commit rape than other college men (Bleeker & Murnen, 2005; Boeringer, 1999). Thus, rape prevention efforts often target fraternitymen (Choate, 2003; Larimer, Lydum, Anderson, & Turner; 1999;Foubert & Newberry, 2006). Compared to their peers on college campuses, fraternity men are more likely to believe that women enjoybeing physically “roughed up,” that women pretend not to want sex but want to be forced into sex, that men should be controllers of relationships, that sexually liberated women are promiscuous and will probably have sex with anyone, and that women secretly desire to be raped (Boeringer, 1999). Beyond the aforementioned quantitative findings, qualitative research suggests that fraternity culture includes group norms that reinforce within-group attitudes perpetuating sexual coercion against women. These cultural norms have the potential toexert powerful influences on men’s behavior (Boswell & Spade; 1996).
The cites for the Bleeker and Boeringer papers are:
Bleeker, E. T., & Murnen, S. K. (2005). Fraternity membership, thedisplay of degrading sexual images of women, and rape myth acceptance. Sex Roles, 53,487–493.
Boeringer, S. B. (1999). Associations of rape-supportive attitudes with fraternal and athletic participation. Violence Against Women, 5(1),81–90.
I don't spend enough (or any) time reading gender studies-based journals like these, so couldn't tell you what their impact factors or general reputation in academia are.
Is it really that hard to believe that centers of alcohol-soaked parties and hyper bro-ness might have a statistical uptick in sexual misconduct towards women? Wouldn't it be kinda shocking if that weren't true under the circumstances?

Stop worrying about your body image and get the damned sweatshirt.
|1 week 2 days ago||That is genuinely TUE on OP's part||
totally unreasonable expectation.

thinking Devin would have been an All-American/high NFL draft type QB with better coaching and a functional OL.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||This is a serious pet peeve of mine, too.||
I used to do cancer research. If someone asks me to explain why a certain cancer happens, I can sit there and explain how the normal process of cell division went awry, how the normal checks in the cell cycle were subverted by an mutation in a tumor suppressor or how an oncogene gets turned on, etc. So there is some explanation for how such a thing happens.
No one ever replies to this by saying "So you're JUSTIFYING my mother dying of cancer??"
Huh? An explanation is over in that corner. A justification is over in that other corner. I never get why people have trouble telling the difference between the two.

how long I looked before realizing what the deal was.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||In all seriousness, how much of a setback was this?||
To the game of football, I mean. Like, decades? Or only years?
This was like trying to watch two straight guys compete in figure skating. Hey-yooooo....

|13 weeks 2 days ago||Damn, this is a preachy post.||
They're just people, yo.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||3. .......||
|13 weeks 3 days ago||This is a good idea||
even without the praying part.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||He's not apologizing for being optimistic.||
He's apologizing for not knowing how to have a conversation with people who disagree without being a dick.
At least that's my interpretation.

Go to the link below and look for the "Week 7: Denard Robinson Highlights" vid. Most of the better plays are in there.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Dogs, man.||
Is it the way they can't hide their emotions? The loyalty? The unconditional affection?
Short lives, but they dig into you. Deep.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Yes!||

Put down the value meal and cover me
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Who run MGoTown?||
MasterBlaster..I mean, Bando run MGoTown.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Damn, baby. That's a strong malt liquor.|
|15 weeks 2 days ago||META: the MGoBoard list||
it was easier to move back in the list to the 2nd page or later at some point last month, then it reverted to it's crapulent state. I can't go back in the list via any browser I use (not easily, anyway). Can others?
The original post is on page 3 at this point, but I don't blame the OP for not seeing it because of this issue. http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/nik-stauskas-flashing-his-money

The house is on fire. Let's worry about the termites later. But good head's up for later.

Diane, they've got an apple pie... that'll kill ya.
|16 weeks 18 hours ago||Now that||
is a devastating bit of perspective.
|16 weeks 18 hours ago||I was calm and composed for the whole thing||
until the Darboh call. I just lost it because that rule is so hideously misunderstood by both officials and fans, and I happen to understand it... I'm just saying. I understand the going to the ground rule. And that's dandy. Except he wasn't going to the ground.
I've accepted that we suck. Getting jobbed I don't accept.
|16 weeks 19 hours ago||This is apples and oranges||
he was not going down in the act of catching the ball-- he was going down in the act of running with a ball that he already possessed. If he dived, caught the ball with clear possession, and the ball then came loose after hitting the ground, it's incomplete despite earlier possession. But that's not what happened here.
|16 weeks 19 hours ago||It was not the correct call||
The Calvin Johnson calls against the Lions were the correct call because in those cases, the player was going to the ground in the act of catching the ball. Darboh wasn't; he had clear possession while upright and dived out of bounds, stretching the ball ahead of him, which then came loose upon hitting the ground. But the catch was completed-- he was running-- so there was no need to stretch "completion" to the point where he hit the ground.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Sheridan absolutely deserved it||
and so did Threet, and so did Tate, so did DR, etc. Especially Sheridan, Threet, and 98, who were sent out there again and again with no discernible OL in front of them and asked to take bullet after bullet for this team. They wore the colors, repped the school, took the abuse, and get a seat at my table any day.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||FUCK yes.||
Good work, man. Hope 98 rips the NJ Scarlet Housewives a new one tonight.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||At this point||
with the email running on ESPN, DB and/or the AD PR office need to push back with a press release if it's false. But continued silence on the matter suggests... it ain't false. We may never know.
That Alabama story is continued NCAA bullshit (it's Bama bullshit, too, but ultimately it's the NCAA that has to do something about vindictive coaches and schools). This is why the NCAA is going to continue to get hammered in the courts at every turn. Restraint of trade, cartel behavior, total lack of consideration for the real lives of the athletes... arrrrrrrrrggghhh.
Fire Brandon. Fire Hoke. Fire Emmert.
Ok, that'll do, pig. That'll do.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Dave Brandon is a public figure||
and it's awfully tough for a public figure to win a libel case in the absence of malice-- but WD would be the only one who can really answer the question of whether he's setting forth something he knows is false.
