i will be shocked if either davis or teske doesn't redshirt. you don't need wagner, donnal, wilson plus both frosh in 16-17. redshirt one of those guys so you can stagger their eligibility. i'm guessing teske gets the redshirt since he is younger and needs to get stronger.

ya, they aren't duke, ky or unc, but that's a pretty good list. he appears to be a likely top 100 player when done. imagine if he grows another inch or two his senior year.
also, your take on UM's offensive philosophy is poop.

big 10 titles
|3 weeks 2 days ago||fulmer||
his rookie numbers are eerily similar to mark "the bird" fidrych; minus all of the complete games. fulmer, though, is on a much better team.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||well||
that is why he is the best hitter in the game. pitchers obviously want to stay away from him, so he focuses on driving those outside pitches the other way, hence loads of HRs to RF and right center field. he does, however, often turn on inside pitches and gets the occasional HR to left.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||ha||
i was thinking the same thing. if the indians wanted miller that bad (or the tigers for that matter), why didn't they just offer him a few more million last year. he was a free agent after all.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||imo||
they need a speedster off the bench. i don't care what position he plays. this could be the difference in games that are tied or down a run; trying to literally steal a run with all of the tigers' one-base-at-a-time players on the roster. whether it's via trade or waivers or whatever. aviles cannot be on any post season roster.
maybe a michael bourn. crazy how that hernan perez guy is finally a good player a couple of years after the tigers had to dump him.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||or||
maybe saban's money...

there is no reason to sell at this point. they are still in the hunt and should have 3 important injured players back in a week or so.
plus, they have no potential free agents anyway; like price, cespedes and soria last year. so if the tigers want to change direction, they can do it in the off season.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||less than zero||
he was pretty damn good in that movie. oscar worthy, imo.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||who knows||
he just completed his soph season. he could possibly grow another 3-4 inches by the end of his senior season.
pretty impressive game for a soph.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||well||
if he were a grad transfer, i would take him in a second. not so sure about taking up a 2017 schollie though. i guess it's good to keep options open.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||well||
losses to all 3 of those teams is reasonably possible; kinda the definition of "floor".
|5 weeks 2 days ago||you||
would be wrong

was a pretty good dude in public settings, too.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||spur of the moment decision||
a buddy and me playing pool in Chicago and having 10 cent wings the Thur nite before. i convinced him to take the road trip for the game. #4 vs #2. we left friday. arrived near happy valley around midnight and saw a gloomy hotel like out of a friday the 13th type movie.
we stopped in. we got the last available room as someone didn't show up. the clerk said there were no available hotel rooms in the immediate 50 mile radius. lucky strike #1.
we left toward the stadium pretty early Sat morning, as we needed to scalp for tickets. it was a bit cold and rainy, so we were able to get a pair of pretty good seats at face value. lucky strike #2.
then UM proceeded to put the biggest beat down of JoePa in happy valley ever. we completely shut down enis that day. i think he scored a meaningless TD very late. what a blow out. lucky strike #3.
listened to the NU and mizzu game in the parking lot while trying to leave that mud pit. although NU won erroneously, we jumped them in the standings to the #1 ranking. lucky strike #4.
attending the osu and that rose bowl - lucky strike #4 and 5!!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||wait||
you are equating 3 TDs with 5 points in bball? not even close. that would likely equate to a 30 pt lead in basketball, rendering fouling in the last minute moot.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||c'mon||
#9 is dumb as written unless there is a caveat with under 5 min or something. otherwise if you are down > 5 pts with less than a minute left, the game is, in effect, over.
#8 also dumb. no 3 seconds? ok, i will just recruit two 7 footers, plant them on each side of the hoop and throw alley oops to them all game. good luck defending that. calipari would love that rule change.

is way low on that list at #27. there is a reason the hotels are all sold out during the summer.
|6 weeks 20 hours ago||the news is threadworthy||
but we don't need several of them. one is enough.
|6 weeks 21 hours ago||meet john doe||
i saw that movie
|6 weeks 2 days ago||the worst||
some years ago, there was a couple (one wearing an osu sweatshirt; the other ND) at a UM-MSU game in the Big House. I am not the only one who gave them sh*t.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||also||
can you slip serena a wooden tennis racket to use too?
|6 weeks 3 days ago||haha||
no way. a couple of marginal prospects at best. anyone could have had hill this off season for nothing. i even said on this blog that the tigers should have signed him way before pelfrey.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||you||
obviously don't know shit about babe ruth. likely just used to watching those few clips when he was in his late 30s.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||babe||
olympic medals, world records in hurdles and high jump. then several years later became the best female golfer on the planet.
she's the best female athlete ever. serena is likely the most dominant in a sport for the longest period of time.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||don't forget||
|8 weeks 11 hours ago||well||
odds are that the last couple years of that contract may not be good. however, big papi is still raking at the age of 40 and miggy has been a much better hitter.
|8 weeks 11 hours ago||well||
then send in custer!
|8 weeks 11 hours ago||3 out of 5||
JV, Zimm and Fulmer are a pretty solid 1-3. I also think Norris will be just fine. His curve ball is just nasty. He just has to spot that fastball consistently and he will be a top of the rotation guy.
