the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

|1 week 5 days ago||thanks||
That's funny - didn't realize it was that high. And I've never gotten a warning letter for this - have several for downloading tv shows. I recognize their rights but think it's silly to harass people for that.
Is any of this connected to this new initiative they have in conjunction with the five or so big cable providers? I'm guessing not. They have some kind of increased surveillance going on to find torrents and the cable providers are agreeing to step up the pressure on users. Started in February.

Thanks but not looking for a game. I seed a lot of torrents and was wondering if you still had all the stats. I have a lot of the games from the last few years and have always been a willing sharer

Are you still tracking torrents or is everything gone?

We were also a lot younger - the biggest reason for the 20+ road loss earlier in the season
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Jacksonville is the team the||
Jacksonville is the team the NFL has identified as the most likely "London" team, at least partly because of their lack of success in Jacksonville as a franchise. IIRC they are going to start playing a few games per year in the not too distant future and if all goes well relocate permanently.
The new owner has no ties to Jacksonville and is reportedly fully on board.
Denard could be a big hit over there.

|5 weeks 2 days ago||"Poor Man's Tim Duncan"||
"Poor Man's Tim Duncan" describes just about every big man in the NBA for the last 12 years or so which makes it not a very meaningful comparison. There are very few as good or better than Tim Duncan so what does that tell you?

With lottery pick money you can go back for a degree anytime you want.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||completely agree||
If we only lose Burke, as good as he is, with Albrecht and the recruits coming in, and the maturing of Stauskas, GRIII and McGary, we could be a better team next year.

Add the early missed goal tend to this and you just have to wince
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Really saying the same thing||
Really saying the same thing - he was taking shots in a manner in which he wasn't comfortable. It wasn't just an off shooting night in the way you normally think of it. His normal shot just wasn't available. I expect him to bounce back tomorrow night.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||It wasn't so much that he||
It wasn't so much that he shot poorly against Syracuse as he couldn't get the shots he likes. To their credit, unlike Florida, Syracuse took them away - he got a couple of rushed jumpers and one off a dribble. To our coaches' credit they pulled him. As Stauskas gains more experience he'll handle that pressure better.
He should get more space Monday night and hit some - one reason why I like Michigan in this game.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Would you now like to got||
Would you now like to got back and re-call every close play in the game? Come on, that's for the losers.
For the record it was a charge - check the game stats.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I agree on your points||
I agree on your points generally. However, I would think that suspending and significantly fining the basketball coach at a major university would take it outside of day-to-day operations. If nothing else it could impact PR and the fund raising activities the President is engaged in. The University President should want to know details of what happened.

|7 weeks 4 days ago||Was at that game and as far||
Was at that game and as far as I can recall there were no complaints. Things were different then - we routinely played out of conference road games. We were also pulling a fair number of players from the New England area at that time (e.g. McMurtry) which may have been an influence.
I think Desmond Howard returned the second half kickoff for a touchdown to turn that game - he was running right towards me.
Memories like that are what get me pumped about going to this game in East Hartford.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Rentschler/East Hartford||
I live in Southern CT and have been to all the stadiums in the area many times. Putting aside the issue of who gets what revenue, for anyone going to the game the preference by far should be UConn's stadium in East Hartford - it isn't even close. Why anyone would prefer to fight their way to the Meadowlands or Foxboro is beyond comprehension. Rentschler has easy access by both car and plane, is a relatively new, nice facility, and at 40,000 a great place to see a game.
The reason they put it there was for the access - I can't understand wanting to see this game anyplace else. Anyone going that hasn't been there before is going to love it.
Besides, I'm not convinced they could sell 70-80,000 seats. For starters a lot of people in CT would stay home and watch on TV rather than endure the nightmare travel.

I was joking of course - and was truly surprised when I checked their site and they had football. Those Canadiens are troopers.
McGill is a great school in a great setting. My daughter is at Michigan now but we visited McGill when she was looking and we would have been very happy if she went there.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||McGill||
Let's grab McGill while we're at it - Montreal is awesome. I just checked and they have football too, much to my surprise.

how or by how much I care not...just win and move on
|9 weeks 1 day ago||they looked good||
I was at the game and it was a good night despite the loss. I live in Fairfield so know a lot of people on their side - very positive and non-hostile crowd. Everyone I talked to was impressed with Michigan, particularly with their effort, hustle, and of course the goaltender. Michigan went down early 4-1, came back to tie and it was close the rest of the way.
A lot of Michigan people there - fun night.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I still don't get why he's so||
I still don't get why he's so upset about what someone did to the program before he got there. If it wasn't wrecked he never would have gotten the job.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Come on. Look how far things||
Come on. Look how far things have progressed. the thing that's missed with that kind of attitude is that this is one of the prices of success - big losses. When you're at the top, in big games, you're going to lose on average half the time against comparable opponents. This one hurt a lot but it's going to happen. The alternative is to not be in these huge games and you never have to suffer the pain.
If you get to the final four and lose a game like this it really, really sucks, but would you rather not be there?
Regardless I would still prefer to go down with class - it doesn't mean we put out less effort or wanted it less. A guy like Crean is a total self-absorbed moron and I don't really want to go there - and this was after he won.
The season isn't over and we may see them again - I would prefer the last laugh.

Knicks would be a perfect fit for Burke, though they may draft too low to get him. Felton is okay but won't be there long, same obviously for Kidd. Would be good for Burke because they will be a good team.
