|6 years 8 weeks ago||Well, he CAN, but something||
Well, he CAN, but something tells me that he'd have to prove something to Beilein/the team before he did again. He did quit. Also, he'd have to change his playing style (ie, he'd need to play defense), which is something he seemed somewhat reluctant to do last year.
|6 years 8 weeks ago||Well, there is a difference||
Well, there is a difference between saying "Lauranitis wasn't all that" and "Lauranitis is garbage". He wasn't one of the 5 best LB's in college football, which is the way he was treated. He was perfectly good, and he would have been Michigan's best LB by a long shot last year. I think they'll have a hard time find a replacement that will play to the same level starting next year.

There is no objective way to claim that Boise State wasn't as good.
|6 years 8 weeks ago||agreed.||
|6 years 8 weeks ago||1. OSU is gonna pass it way||
1. OSU is gonna pass it way more. They hardly passed this year, so that seems plausible.
|6 years 8 weeks ago||Most of it seems pretty||
Most of it seems pretty sensible.
|6 years 8 weeks ago||Are his offers to play hoop||
Are his offers to play hoop slim so he's backpedalling??
This would appear to be true.
|6 years 8 weeks ago||Or how about we stop||
Or how about we stop obsessing about every little $158 infraction? This was reported to the NCAA, and resolved. It's over.
No program, including ours, is 100% clean. Lets stop shrieking about an impossibly small transgression - it makes it seem like we're trying to rationalize getting our ass handed to us for 5 consecutive years.

Joe Daniels appears to recruit PA and OH. In other words, it could be any freshman from one of the two states.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||I'm not really trying to say||
I'm not really trying to say we're worse (or they're worse) - I think that they are two largely different things, both of which were extremely unethical.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||You've ducked it twice now.||
You've ducked it twice now. Explain how he found out that Martin bought Louis Bullock's parents a set of plane tickets, made Bullock give them back, but never:
a) reported them
|6 years 9 weeks ago||I guess we're one step closer||
I guess we're one step closer to becoming a board where people make their signatures Maxim girls with Maize and Blue bikinis photo-shopped on. Rivals board, here we come.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Tater once again proves||
Tater once again proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that his moral compass is pointing south.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||He knew that Martin bought||
He knew that Martin bought Bullock plane tickets, because he made Bullock give them back. But he never reported the incident, and never took Martin's access away after the incident. Being a good person in everyday life doesn't mean he did the right thing in his professional life.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||I was at Michigan during||
I was at Michigan during Fischer's reign. He knew that Martin was buying Bullock's family airlines tickets (he stopped him on one occassion) but still didn't remove Martin's access to the program. Open your eyes.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Nice how the writer was||
Nice how the writer was trying to gin up some conflict between RR and Bill Martin without a speck of evidence to support it.
Par for the course at that site.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Oh god I hope this is||
Oh god I hope this is sarcasm.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||OK. She's a George H. W. Bush||
She's a George H. W. Bush federal appointee. She has voted with Republican judges more often than she ohas voted with Democratic judges. In the one abortion-issues case she has sat on, she voted on the "pro-life" side.
On the firefighters case, she upheld 2nd Circuit Court precedent. I'm not saying she was right, but that's hardly "activist".
You're looking at a single decision and assuming it was made for one of a myriad of issues.

I know for a fact that the lacrosse team doesn't practice more than three times a week. Read their own website.
Three evenings of practice per week in the fall plus occasional early morning conditioning and three strength training sessions a week

According to Orrin Hatch, who is opposed to everything Obama stands for politically and in ideology. Hatch wants to scare people into thinking that "empathatic" means "will kill babies".
Further, I imagine that her decision (if she wrote the decision? Clearly other federal judges had to side with her - it's a panel of 3 judges) rested in law? Like she used law to back up her point? I'm not a lawyer, so I wouldn't know what laws relate to the case, but I would know enough to research them before I implied that her decision was based on "all I vote on are racial lines".
|6 years 9 weeks ago||I don't think you'll find the||
I don't think you'll find the full game anywhere, but often, mflowblue.blogspot.com has game highlights up sometime after the game (they aren't there yet).
|6 years 9 weeks ago||This. The second I listen to||
The second I listen to a chuckle-head on a message-board tell me I'm not a "Michigan Man" for some insane reason of their own creation like "Michigan men don't cheer for Michigan State in the NCAA Finals!" is the second I let the idiots win.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Lete me preface by saying||
Lete me preface by saying that I don't listen to Cowherd, and all I hear about him confirms that I shouldn't.
That said, I think you're missing the point. His point is that a drunk driver doesn't intend to harm someone. A drunk driver is making a stupid, horrible decision that may harm someone else.
Making two dogs fight, or, to his analogy, molesting a child, requires a desire and willingness to harm another being. Thus, the difference in the mindsets.
|6 years 9 weeks ago||This thread is stocked with||
This thread is stocked with by people with only a small, faint, glimmering hint of knowledge about the NBA:
1. Oden should not have stayed in school longer. He as drafted 1st over one of the most heralded prospects in history (Durant). He could have improved his stock no more. He wouldn't have been coached better - do you really think Matta is a better coach than Nate McMillan and an NBA staff? Ohio State fans don't even think that.
2. It's too early. He hasn't been a failure for two seasons. He's been extremely foul-prone for one. He missed a year due to injury. And he's not Darko. Darko played nothing but garbage time for 3 years, and had been a BACKUP for a lower division European team. Oden was the best player on the 2nd best team in college basketball. He had a track record of success, Darko didn't. Again: At this point Darko couldn't crack a rotation, Oden averaged 9 points and 7 boards in 21 minutes a game.
3. He had microfracture surgery LAST YEAR. Even the most successful cases, like Amare Stoudemire, take more than a full year to come back from it. Others, like Antonio McDyess, come back but aren't the same player. Others, like Gilbert Arenas, never come back.

Brandon Roy, LaMarcus Aldridge = fucking up the draft?

I've liked lots of Penn State's players. Arrington was one of the best college players I've seen.
