Question: Was the player who delivered that hit ever further disciplined? Sorry for not keeping tabs but, did the UM staff follow up with the BIG office on that? It looked like blatant targeting.

Upon reflection, Bass' injury heralded the beginning of the end.
The "what might have been" (2006 MNC?), morphed into the near 10 year abyss.
Yes, his loss looms that large for me.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||Nice get!||
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Cochran should be tossed||
by the Big Ten office--at least one game.
Hoke should be tossed permanently. Complete embarassment of a program at this point.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||So true.||
So true, sad but true. How two OCs in a row cannot see this is amazing.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Upvote for Mirror Pond Pale Ale||
Turned onto it when I lived in Eugene. Still buy it when I can find it.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Not sure if it is apropos here but...||
To hell with Notre Dame!
( I knew it was...)
|9 weeks 3 days ago||So you're saying there's hope?||
I remember growing up my Dad would peg different schools as to their traditional position strengths.
Pretty typical stuff--PSU:linebackers, USC:running backs, ND:assholes and UM:OL.
My how times have changed. Still hopeful however...

or is she some friend of Lennay?
|10 weeks 20 hours ago||Agreed||
And the truly sad part is that once a brand starts to be marketed in a cheap manner, it is very difficut to reverse course and carve out the classy and unique image. For all the successes that people may see in Brandon's efforts, stunts like piped in music and clowniforms have cheapened the whole enterprise.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Great Player||
He was always the X factor to me, the difference between the team being very good and great.
Those inconsistent flashes of brilliance were/are coachable to more consistency. Sorry to see him go, but I'm ever more likely to start watching the NBA again.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||Can the drones play in the secondary?||
Gotta imagine they'd be damn good ball hawks.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||77-65 good guys.||
I'm not buying that an SEC also-ran can hang with the BIG champs.
|30 weeks 3 days ago||Pretty strong statement||
Considering that Two-Hearted is often voted one of if not the best IPAs (or any beer) in America by different industry publications. Founders is fine beer and to each their own of course but no one "blows Bells out of the water".
|30 weeks 6 days ago||Duck Fuke!||
I would have rather we beat them, but still wonderful.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Show-cause?||
Didn't he leave Tenn with a show-cause penalty? (or whatever the proper term is).
|31 weeks 2 days ago||I appreciate the attempt to be balanced here. BUT||
There are clearly both environmental and genetic components. I would argue that there is not "a" genetic abnormality, but rather a very large suite of genotypes that can predispose toward autism. If it were "a" single allele (gene variant) then we would ahve found it by now. When you combine a very large number of predisposing gene variants with environmental effects that themselves may vary with genotype, you get things that are very hard to nail down, like autism, adult onset diabetes, multiple sclerosis and on and on. You are right that there well may be an immune system connection (overly simplified: growing up in too sterile of environments seems to be causing us all sorts of problems).
That said, one envrionmental area that has been looked at extensively is the possible effect of vaccines. NO FLIPPING EVIDENCE AT ALL. NONE! It is not balanced to say that since it is complex and we do not know everything that everything is on the table. We have ruled out vaccines as causing autism. It is a deadly suggestion and not part of a balanced treatment.

Crean is creeeeepy
|32 weeks 4 days ago||Great work!||
I love your photos.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||A good example of why I sometimes love this site.||
I would suggest a cultivar like rapeseed (B napus) for OSU. Not for the name, but for the fact that it is an allopolyploid (basically results from inbreeding the offspring of two things that have no business mating).
|37 weeks 4 days ago||What has become of this board?||
A man died. Yes, tragically. Yes by his own (alleged) actions. Still tragic. Try empathy.
Why this topic is 1) worthy of a post on a sports board and 2) worthy of mockery from supposed UM grads/fans is beyond me.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
How is this even a question at this point?
|41 weeks 5 days ago||True that.||
I was there. It sucked. The next year made up for it though!
|1 year 1 week ago||I just remind myself||
that these are 18-22 year old kids out there and that it is crazy to make my mood contingent on what they do. I was way too invested in the Carr years to where it would ruin my weekend when they played lousy. App State cured me. Now I can enjoy the wins and sort of laugh off the nonsense like yesterday. This team is going to lose at least 3 more games this season.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||24-10||
solid, uninspiring performance
|1 year 3 weeks ago||I kinda like this||
No way Walt gets in easy to Grey Matter, as he'd have to for the ricin to work ("sure Walt, let's have tea"), so guns-a-blazin' makes sense.
The converse is true with Jack's gang. They can match Walt's firepower so why not a ricin laden pow-pow with them?
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Against ND||
1) win percentage race
2) asshole coaches
3) fawning media
4) we'll beat MSU anyway
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Nice avatar!||
I need better skills.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||ND may have an ace in the hole however.||
If the case makes it to the US Supreme Court on appeal they will find a bench that is 2/3 Catholic. Not sure if any of them like ND football but let's hope they lose this imaginary case on the merits well before that.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Sorry to fact check you||
but Florida is a superior academic school to Georgia by almost any measure.
No offense to Georgia (my wife is an alum and Athens is fun and loaded with tradition) and I'd love to see the series, but academically speaking (AAU membership and rankings), Florida comes out on top.
