But it's not just Scott Paterno who's a revisionist; it's much of the Penn State fanbase.
Paterno may have fulfilled his legal obligation in reporting Sandusky to police, but not his moral one. If you look at Bo and Woody, they had their faults but they were men of integrity. I can confidently say that neither would have allowed such a thing to happen. Paterno was a cartoon character cut from a different, weaker fiber.

I don't know if it's true, but I once stumbled across a message board in which one of the posters wrote that Rich Eisen was at UM and was told the David Terrell bomb ass D story. Sometime later he was doing commentary on a highlight of a David Terrell TD and goes, "Who's got the bomb? David Terrell's got the bomb!"
I'd love to find out if that's true.

Lost Lettermen was interesting, at least in concept, but now it's nothing more than clickbait. It's utter filth.

Well the universe has us on one fucking short leash. Seriously, of all programs in college football, does Michigan really deserve shit that much more than others? Are Dantonio and MSU really on such higher moral ground that Mike Hart's relatively harmless little brother comment merits Dantonio's self-righteous response proving to be prophetic? Fuck no, especially considering that Dantonio mocked that very player--an amateur athlete, mind you--in almost the same breath.
We banned no goats from the Big House, sold no coach or player out. The Ed Martin scandal was bad, but curses don't often work across sports. What beef do the football gods have with us?
On the other hand, we win in EL next year.

I actually find it to be a pretty funny, self-aware comment. I think he was making a joke.

So Northwestern is 4-0, having beaten Stanford and Duke (who beat Ga Tech), yet is behind USC, who lost to Stanford? How does that make sense? And Michigan is 3-1 with a much closer loss to Utah than 2-2 Oregon, yet Oregon is still ranked and Michigan isn't. It's absurd, but it doesn't really count for that much.
The Coaches' Poll is usually a reflection of personal biases.

I hope to check it out. I saw a TV spot a few days ago and it had a blurb saying "Best action movie ever." Now I know that blurbs are usually taken out of context, but I had to check Rotten Tomatoes. It was 98%. Impressive.

The Fighting Mary Sues
|29 weeks 3 days ago||My favorites||
Bison Bison - "BIson bison is the american bison and would one-up the NDSU nickname. Also, very scientific!"
Canadians - "All of your players are from Canada and you have Tim Hortons."
Around 130 pages of Fighting Sioux suggestions, including a few misspelled.
Fighting Suhakis - nice try
Suing Fight ("Because lawyers, man")
I don't know if these were all rejected immediately because some of them aren't so bad, such as the ones referring to the school's history in aviation, but I get why not. Thunderbirds is decent/passable, or at least the reasoning makes sense. ("Aviation, American Indian, said to create windstorms, aerobatics, can't spell Thunderbird without UND. Sacred symbol of strength and power.") I'm guessing that maybe UND wants to avoid any copyright issues or perhaps they've already chosen a name or narrowed it down to a few favorites.

Condoms. Thank you, student health.
|31 weeks 5 days ago||A long time ago I was with||
A long time ago I was with some buddies at a bar, maybe in Arizona, maybe Tunisia, who knows. The whole experience started out rough, with two of my buddies getting kicked out for some BS reason pretty much as soon as we walked in. Really tough place, and we knew we had to be cautious. You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
I take a seat at the bar while my friend (let's call him Ben) wanders off to talk to someone he apparently knew, I'm minding my own business when this really ugly guy, out of nowhere, gives me a shove. This is the last place I want to have trouble, so I just pretend that it never happened. Another ugly-looking dude then taps me on the shoulder and lets me know that his friend doesn't like me. So that explains it. Okay, great. I just say I'm sorry and go back to my drink. Not satisfied with my answer, the guy grabs me and pointedly tells me, "I don't like you either!" and goes on to brag about how he and his buddy are wanted men and are so badass and dangerous. Not good.
(Un)fortunately, Ben had been next to me the whole time and tries to quell the situation, telling them I'm not worth their time (thanks, ass). Ugly guy spewing the threats suddenly shoves me and I go flying back into the wall. Fucker then draws a gun! Without skipping a beat, Ben cuts the dude's arm off! Stunned silence, but he showed everyone who's boss. Things calmed down but we ended up leaving with some friends in a hurry.

If you want to have a good understanding of what George did wrong in the prequels as well as likely why, watch RedLetterMedia's Mr. Plinkett reviews of each prequel. Each review is over an hour long, but they offer fantastic analysis, they're very funny, and you learn more about movies in general. Can't recommend them enough if you have the time.
I have faith in JJ Abrams.

Dark Knight trilogy is the most perfect trilogy I can think of. Dark Knight is probably a top 5 movie for me. Just fantastic.
James Bond. The series managed to rebound in a huge way from the awful Die Another Day.*
I love Star Wars but there's that problem of all three prequels. Alien and Aliens are incredible but 3 sucked and 4 was just an insult. You can never go wrong with Indiana Jones as long as you forget about the 4th one.
*Interesting fact: the movie was originally supposed to be called Tie Another Day and tell the story of Bond's love affair with neckwear. That's only half true.

Shaq's the man. One of the greatest NBA personalities of all time.
I still can't get over the ordeal Hatch went through. I see him as something of a modern-day Job. Can you imagine what it must be like to come out of a coma to that? And to have his optimistic attitude, I don't know how he does it. What a strong man.

He might have and OSU would do well to follow the rules, but I believe that college athletes should (at least) be allowed to do ads for local companies that fall within a certain radius of the school or their hometown. It allows them to make some money off their own brand instead of others making money off of them and they can lend their name to support businesses. Win-win.

I think it'd be kind of awesome if UM had a deal with New Balance, Saucony, or Asics, but they're not sexy brands and they're not known for their apparel. I think CMU used to have NB and I would think, irrelevant program but healthiest feet in college football.
My fixation with shoe comfort aside, does anyone know if the athletes' shoes are tailored more to their specifications? So if an athlete at Michigan isn't comfortable in their Adidas shoes, the equipment people can make changes to them?
