I'm not saying people didn't have sex in the day but the sexual content young kids are exposed to nowadays makes me blush.
Identification is another issue with heightened and earlier exposure in American culture. I can't really comment on band sub culture.

Do they practice together?
|1 week 3 days ago||Yes and No... some people don't have strong family role models||
and those few are sometimes saved by their athletics. Coaches, teammates and school administrators can and do play a vital role in turning lives around - granted it is rare when family values aren't strong.

in the meantime...how does this affect Nasier Upshur's top 13? Or should I say 12?
|1 week 3 days ago||The argument for youth football fails IMO...||
This creates a problem for HS, College and Pro in terms of talent.
Tom Brady didn't play youth football, but if no one plays then skills are taught later and talent finds other venues.
There still isn't enough data to plot a safe course for football, but there is no risk free path in life. The issue is with kids who are too young to understand the risk. Already the demographics are skewed to the disadvantaged (which is another lesson of football BTW - everyone is equal on the field of play.)
No one person in my opinion understands the risks... only parts. The rewards for youth football can be garnered in other less risky sports. HS can be played safely... I think...but I honestly don't know. The vast majority of all players are injury free in HS and College...again I think.
The toughness meme is passe. It's time to play smart. Tagliabue set us on this course with a decade of denial. I'm not sure it can be righted in the manner it should. Things are changing quickly now on all fronts.

I don't think JH would take issue with that.
Rather he would say the seeds for both are sowed in sport.
|1 week 4 days ago||The Smart Take from the Strong||
The Basketball Philosophy of Pete Carril.
This not a fundamental or broad theory book like many already mentioned but it has snippets of greatness.
|1 week 4 days ago||I agree...||
...uh...now what do I with the rest of my day.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This is interesting...||
there's stuff going on that is not common knowledge. I think this will turn out well in the end.
I confused on fit - given the needs of the team. This will make sense though soon enough (excuse me for talking to myself.)

We're likely to see Pipkins line up at gunner.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||They come pretty dirty to make such a slight...||
I love Izzo when he isn't playing 'M'.
MSU props admission... I also loved Mateen Cleaves and of course Magic. MSU basketball has very little to sneer at wrt hoops for a very long time.

|4 weeks 16 hours ago||It seems there's a new plan this year...||
there's more injuries, more yellow pennies and the same smirks/boo boos. Unlike some programs where coaches weigh in on injury, trainers and medical staff are makng calls independently and perhaps, in this spring at least, more conservatively.
The key message here from Harbaugh is a no injuries = good spring game.

Very sad. Still the potential is there for something good to happen hopefully.
|5 weeks 15 hours ago||The best sport ever...||
We should make a men's, women's and coed varsity team as soon as possible. The sport of the future.
Very post match beer friendly.
Too bad about Easterns... but I have a feeling it was fun as all hell regardless.
I love all the football references in the video.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Center is a very demanding position... new guys struggle||
with 3 to 4 different snapping techniques compounded with multiple QBs of different size and style, not to mention new schemes. There are going to be issues in the spring.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Uh...||
or the defense made sure they lost. /s
A slacker post. It's great don't get me wrong. The crack is mighty. Moar Harbaugh smells like victory.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Wisconsin is my favorite other B1G school...||
The campus is fun. The students and fans are great. I'm glad to see them succeed if it is not at Michigan's expense. Unfortunately some of the success is a problem. It sure would be nice to get a Diamond Stone or JJ Watt and let the Badger wither.

This in the backdrop of current US Russian tensions - threatening to limit US space program access to the ISS and Pu238.
Pretty interesting post by the OP.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Good players stay in the league||
They also get drafted in the early rounds. Richardson doesn't prove anything.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||It's not like Michigan has lost any recruiting battles with UCLA||
Cheating pays or people wouldn't do it. If only there was an organization that could...
nm... that''s crazy.

there is something to this madness known as Michigan Football.
