They return 7 starters, but the guys who are replacing those that left are probably better than the returning starters for almost every other team we play. Not to mention, by the time we play them, they will be experienced.
I don't understand how you can overlook any Urban Meyer-coached OSU team. They will be great until further notice. I would be shocked if they had 2 or more losses heading into The Game.

How is no one speculating that he was paid off? Let's get this conspiracy theory rolling!
I was going to vote no, but then I was given wads of cash to vote yes. Sorry!

I like that they are bringing in more female characters with actual personalities and that actually do useful things. But where is Wedge Antilles???

SEC: Satellite camps are bad and morally wrong. Unless we're doing them.

Damn, I was saying this back when the jump man was announced and I was reamed for it.

I mean, if it were someone of comparable fame (and time frame) like Run DMC, then probably not.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Hey, well I'll get neg-banged||
Hey, well I'll get neg-banged with you. ACDC is one of the most overrated bands of all time. Every song follows a similar formula, the rhythm is uninteresting, and "singer" is awful. They are just not for me. Neg away!
That said, it is genuinely sad for the fans and for the band.

O'Korn will be in his 2nd year in the system, which gives me a lot of hope. If the word that he was already the best qb on the roster at the end of last year is even close to true, look out. We have a monster year coming up.

"Did you advocate we keep Hoke ?"
Funny story, I did, until mid 2014.
But I don't think these situations are comparable. Beilein is clearly a great coach, and he's proven it by taking the team very, very close to winning the NC and getting very far in the tourney a few other times. The basketball team has had a couple of down years. So what? I am tired of the attitude that has prevailed in the NCAA that if a coach has a down year or two he should be let go. Stability is huge for college sports. And Beilein, in my mind, has earned the benefit of the doubt. If this goes on another few years, sure, let him go, but we have 2 Big Ten championships in the last 4 years. It is not time to look for another coach.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Coming from someone who pays||
Coming from someone who pays almost zero attention to basketball: we were in the national championship game a few years ago, and had another final four appearance and I believe elite 8 and sweet sixteen appearances in a few years stretch.
The basketball team hasn't been great the last couple of years after mass departure of talent and injuries plagueing the team this whole year, and we are talking about firing Beilein? Are you guys nuts? Remember where we were before Beilein?

The thing is, the north doesn't openly celebrate indentured servitude or racism.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Most of the backlash is due||
Most of the backlash is due to the fact that, like it or not, the Confederacy supported slavery. Celebrating Confederate heritage at least on some level celebrates slavery. I don't think I should need to explain why some people find that offensive and mind-boggling that Confederate history is so openly celebrated in the south.

I peaked early - on my 11th birthday, I was playing in a little league baseball tournament. I hit a grand slam on my first at bat, a two run Homer on my second at bat, and a double on my third at bat. I was also the youngest kid on the team by far, some were almost 2 years older than me.
On the day after my 12th birthday, I hit another home run in a game. I never hit another home run after that, but got close a few times in high school.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||OP, good on you for||
OP, good on you for Chevelle. They've been one of my favorites since The Red came out - they've probably been the best "mainstream" rock band of the last decade or so. My all time favorite band is TOOL, who I just saw live last month and couldn't have been happier about it. Here's a pretty decent overview:
Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Gin Blossoms, Toad the Wet Sprocket, etc
TOOL, Porcupine Tree, ISIS, Intronaut, Dillinger Escape Plan, Devin Townsend, Deftones, Filter, Muse, QOTSA, Coheed & Cambria, Riverside
I also branch out to shoegaze, more indie-type rock as well, but the above is the majority of my listening.

Hold the phone, taking back Sunday is a metal band? I'd put them as emo/punk wayyyyyyy before metal.

Yes, yes I can.
The SEC sucks, this is awesome. And I want Maryland and Rutgers gone.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||This is pretty much what most||
This is pretty much what most people were saying before they actually won the NC.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Spring break is a time when||
Spring break is a time when many college students.... go to Florida. On their own dime.
I get that it takes away their choice in the matter but I'm going to venture a guess that the vast majority of players on the team are thrilled at the prospect of a free vacation, which happens to have football practice thrown in.

While I understand your point and actually agree with it, it doesn't make what he did right or justifiable.

Are you trying to imply that LTT is a victim here?

Hopefully the kid learns from this. And hopefully the victim is OK and can move on with her life.

Not Webster, but autocorrect. Oops.

I've seen this guy's name more than any other coach in the last couple weeks. Why is he such a bible deal?

Get ready for the position of Athletic Director to be officially be renamed to the "Get Off Brian Cook's Lawn Athletic Director."

Keep the jersey the same, but go with the maize pants.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||They lose a lot of talent,||
They lose a lot of talent, but we've been saying this for years and it pretty much never happens. MSU is recruiting well and Mark Dantonio is one of the best coaches in the country.
I don't think they'll be great next year, but let's not act like they'll be a bottom of the barrel team either. And we play them at their place, and we all know weird things happen there.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Ok, can next season start||
Ok, can next season start tomorrow? I am very excited for the future.

Color me shocked.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Why should we have any||
Why should we have any confidence that a) he'd be the same player after 3 year-ending injuries in a row and b) that he wouldn't have another one of those injuries?
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Hackenberg is the perfect QB||
Hackenberg is the perfect QB to take advantage of MSU's weak secondary. Too bad he will have -2.3 seconds to throw the ball. The -1.5 line seemed insane, this one seems more correct regardless of who starts at QB for MSU.
