Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

Ahh...excuse me? The NBA wants players to immediately help their ball clubs and not projects?
All the NBA does is draft on potential talent alone. How else do you explain Anthony Bennett being the #1 overall pick last year, you know the guy they wanted to send to the D-League because he was so bad or for that matter the majority of top #15 selections in the past 10 years? Fuck what about Darko?
Nik-honest to god skills, showed great improvment in all areas, potential is there
McGary-showed flashes but being sidelined will hurt his draft stock unless he comes back and has another monster March/April
GR3-(IMO) strictly a potential pick

He is a cap casualty, they didn't cut him for sucking it up on the field. If he wanted to take a nice paycut I'm sure the Eagles would welcome him back with open arms.

They actually mention in the article that the font/numbers are "inspired" by the blade of a sword. I dont mind the overall theme (love the big logo) of the uniform but its dumbass details like the numbers with the hard-to-see-numbers-because-we-shoehorned-a-fancy-pants-idea that get me and say...no. Just no.

Concur that at the end of the day only W's count but what about venue's such as Seattle's "celebrated" 12th man that can influence the game.
Right now M may have a A squad and doesn't need the help, but what about years when they only have a B squad and are sitting on the bubble. That little extra bump from the crowd may mean a free throw miss and can help the team make a tourney.

...and yet there are numerous examples of Stadiums/Venues firing hot dog/beer/chips/cotton candy vendors that put that extra bit of pizazz to their job which make them memorable. Instead it's just monotone voices hawking their wares, none distinguisable from the other.
I am not even 30 and I lament that my childhood experience is going to be so radically different than any future children I may have.

Agreed. You should have to wait a minimum of 10-15 years before you can "reboot" a franchise. Just because you effed it up the 1st time around doesn't mean you get to call shenanigans and start over.

Man, am I really glad that my 11 week old puppy woke me up this morning, thus allowing me to enjoy this post and posbang everyone in it.

Doubtful. Bunch of old dudes/gals sitting around trying to figure out whats hip and adding that Wi-Fi.
Even with the student survey I can see the AD trending towards more gimmick promotions rather than cutting time spent in line down or anything that makes the actual game experience better.

You never need to "commit" or sign a NLI. He can just "hold out" until he hits 18, sign his financial aid paperwork and bam he is on the MSU football team. Whatevea' mama says be damned.

More than likely means that TWC will survive in some form for that small subset of people. I had Alltel a few years back when Verizion snatched them up but they "divested" a bunch of Michigan customers for this reason. Of course we ended up with a zombie of a company providing us service and locked into a contract. Fun.

Count me among those that hate it. Peter Kings MMQB site comes to mind and (at a glance) I have no fucking clue when an article is posted because its a 3 x forever grid of random articles with content constantly being pushed down the page.
I feel like grid formats with large headers are for drive-by browsing and not "power" users. I like my stories to be posted in a vertical chronological order so I can quickly see new content and decide if I want to read it or not.

Relax. Did you go to prom in a limo and/or rented limo?
I highly doubt him showing up in a limo on signing day is indicitive of his ego or team mentality. It's a special day for him and he just wants to look good showing up

By happenstance I randomely had NSD off a couple years ago and it was fun to just tune into ESPN U and follow all of the action and not just Michigan commits. Would I take the day off just for this day? Hell no, but for those that have a snowday from work then why not?

Good Lawd, if you looked up "defensive tackle" in the dictionary, this picture would be looking back at you. Huge head, thick neck and wide shoulders, and Brady sure looks bigger than 255lbs.

Despite knowing better, for some reason I imagine the male-modeling world to be exactly like Zoolander.

When Michigan, as the #1 flagship school, has to resort to wearing last years jerseys because the new model is shit and rips/tears at the slightest use. Yet Adidas refuses to fix the issue and rush order/prodcue another batch of jerseys in time for the current season then I think that speaks volumes about the company and their inability to react to the marketplace.
Maybe they should spend less time designing jerseys with sleeves/zubaz stripes on them and bit more on R&D.

Should be, you normally see the sand showing up towards the end of the season when they've spread all the salt and do not have the budget to buy more.

2 inches of snow and RWD should not result in any problems no matter your location (outside of Hawaii) as long as you are a decent to somewhat terrible driver. The only thing you have to do is not put it to the floor when you accelerate.
Having lived in KY for the past 3 years, I do tell my Northern friends/family that while we can still make fun of them the fact of the matter is that their roads, not to mention their road clearing abilities, are simply not built with snow and/or ice in mind.
I'm talking about 100 y/o Oak trees inches from the road on a corner marked 45MPH or raised road surfaces with no shoulders/guardrails which brings new meaning to keep it between the white lines. Every night on the news you hear at least 1 story about someone loosing control and dying, throw snow/ice into the mix and it's game over.

Just what point are you trying to make here? Because you are jumping all over the place.
Every poster has seemingly said, while its great for MM to make his decision based on how it relates to him, its great that his parents are also there looking out for him and looking at the things an 18yo doesn't look at (e.g. academics, life beyond ball).
|6 weeks 1 day ago||It may be a stretch but I||
It may be a stretch but I dont think it's all that far fetched. I mean business history is littered with the corpses of businesses who've crossed the wrong Richie Rich type. Hell Job's went all "nuclear" on Samsung just for shits and giggles. Seems plausible that if they would have drafted Burke, then he would have been the face of the franchise and Gores simply didnt like that idea very much.
