I'm somewhere in the middle on this. I like that we police that stuff so that I don't have to cringe every time I read a thread, but there are better ways to police threads than have 20 people make the same comment, rendering the thread useless and unreadable. Just neg the damn thing and move on after the first couple of critical comments.

I think that was elementary school my friend.
|1 day 20 min ago||For the sake of getting one||
For the sake of getting one comment in here on topic, my lasting memory of Webber in the NBA will be that 2002 Western Conference Finals series against the Lakers. One of the most entertaining (and frustrating) NBA serieseseseses I can remember.
|1 day 26 min ago||So the MSU recruiting||
So the MSU recruiting strategy is to travel hundreds of miles from East Lansing to tell highly rated kids, in person, that they suck and aren't wanted? I'm no expert, but Mark, this might not be optimal.
|1 day 2 hours ago||I'm not sure I should admit||
I'm not sure I should admit this, but I just googled "Arnie Danglepenis" to see if that's a thing or that's just you continuing to be a funny SOB. Hats off to you, BiSB.
Even though there were no hits, I'm in a Starbucks and not "feeling lucky" enough to check the images.
|1 day 11 hours ago||That is a good article, but||
That is a good article, but most of those quotes are a few months old, no? I feel like I've seen almost all of those lines before.
|5 days 1 hour ago||True. And we can't properly||
True. And we can't properly judge a president's performance until we have at least 50-100 years of perspective and hindsight. Are you okay with people on message boards starting to talk about President Harding's performance, or should we all wait awhile on that?
|1 week 2 hours ago||I led that charge in the||
I led that charge in the other thread, and I mentioned this there, but I'm sorry about that. We've had a lot of people come through who claim to be insiders, make a prediction, and then sit quietly to see whether they should gloat about that prediction or fade away without anyone noticing. My sense is that you aren't one of those guys, and I wouldn't have been such a dick earlier if that had been my impression then. Sorry about that.
A question: By any chance, are you the guy who posted on Eleven Warriors about being with Hand (and wearing maize, I think) when he visited Columbus?
|1 week 3 hours ago||I have a feeling that I might||
I have a feeling that I might owe you an apology pretty soon. If so, damn, I'm sorry to have lumped you in with the rest of the asshats we get around here pretending to be insiders.
|1 week 10 hours ago||Maybe, but do you really||
Maybe, but do you really think guys from Minnesota, Duke, etc. have any of their own information about Hand? They're just copying the guys who seem legitimately in the know. I'd take something that Farrell says as 100x more informative than most of those 24/7 predictions combined.
|1 week 13 hours ago||You're a smart guy, BiSB, and||
You're a smart guy, BiSB, and this is an honest question. On what grounds are you even entertaining the possibility that this is true?
|1 week 13 hours ago||I don't think that's how||
I don't think that's how "information" is spelled. The rest of your post looks good.
|1 week 14 hours ago||Dammit, I was hoping you read||
Dammit, I was hoping you read that somewhere. Instead you're just a jerk-off who gets his kicks pretending he's an insider on message boards.
|1 week 14 hours ago||Help me out, because I'm not||
Help me out, because I'm not a very smart man. Is this a joke I don't get, or news that would excite me way more than it should?
|1 week 1 day ago||It wasn't a legitimate||
It wasn't a legitimate bid.
|1 week 3 days ago||Yeah, I feel like we need to||
Yeah, I feel like we need to start over and take another shot at this.
|1 week 4 days ago||Well yes, everyone in the||
Well yes, everyone in the world of projecting football talent from high school to college makes mistakes. Obviously. Your original point, though, was that we should probably trust Rivals and Scout (which are relatively low on Bunting) over 247 and ESPN (which are relatively high on Bunting). My point is that if you're going to do that, you're really trusting Rivals and Scout over 247, ESPN, and the coaches at a whole lot of programs that can be extremely selective with their offers.
|1 week 4 days ago||Also probably rating him as a||
Also probably rating him as a 4-star:
The coaching staffs at:
His offer list suggests that 247 and ESPN might be onto something with this one.
|1 week 6 days ago||He has recently said that||
He has recently said that he'd like to make a decision by December.
|1 week 6 days ago||In that case, maybe that Gordon Gee||
In that case, maybe that Gordon Gee was onto something about Catholics.

I believe it's spelled "Samm Web." Thanks in advance.

Okay, now I'm doubting you.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||If you get a second, could||
If you get a second, could you provide those links? I'm not doubting you; just interested in where that's coming from.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||You and I read that||
You and I read that differently. Where does it say that she's the favorite? All I see is that she's "a favorite of many on the UM faculty."
|2 weeks 3 days ago||So you think they're||
So you think they're Linebacker U because of one position coach who has been there for a decade? Plus, even if they had kept the same exact staff together for the last 40 years, wouldn't it seem more likely that they produce good linebackers because they're good at developing them over four years as opposed to spotting talent that no one else can see in a couple of hours of grainy high school highlights?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||So we should follow Penn||
So we should follow Penn State's linebacker recruiting because of guys like Matt Millen, LaVar Arrington, and Paul Posluszny? I don't know if you noticed, but PSU had a coaching change recently. Unless you think it's the buildings in State College that have been evaluating LB talent over the last few decades, that argument is ridiculous.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||On Beckmann...||
I understand the motivation for locking/removing Beckmann-related threads, but I disagree with it. Politically divisive topics, in general, have no place on this board and it's best to avoid them. I get that. Still, there's a difference between political topics in general and political topics that hit extremely close to Michigan sports (and particularly Michigan football). I think it's a little strange and frustrating that we can't discuss something like the Beckmann story when it's clearly a big story that involves our program.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I agree. Mixing sports||
I agree. Mixing sports broadcasting with politics is stupid to begin with (e.g., see Rush Limbaugh and MNF), and at this point the risks of keeping Beckmann far outweigh the rewards.
Hell, even if he's telling the truth that he just signed his name to something written by another person, that's pretty pathetic in itself. (Plus, maybe read it first, Frank?)

Before we give Wisconsin too much credit, here's their 2014 schedule.
That literally could be the worst schedule I've ever seen for a Big Ten team.
