They haven't had a legitimate contender since Andy Roddick retired. They haven't really had a legitimate contender on the women's side outside of Serena and Venus--who developed outside the USTA system--in a long time either.
The USTA's track record when it comes to player development is pretty atrocious.

Not even close to elite anymore. This was as much Michigan walking away as it was him walking away.

Uhhhh......have you seen the guy lately?
|9 weeks 6 days ago||They're all Kill recruits.||
They're all Kill recruits. And in the report one of the players makes it sound like that night wasn't the first time they had engaged in a team bonding event like that.

HIs teams were pretty dirty off the field too, apparently.

Basically a Brendan Gibbons situation times ten.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Have you tried listening to a||
Have you tried listening to a football broadcast on the radio lately? I don't think Dierdorf could tip off the opposing team on what day of the week the game will be played at this point.

It's not like it's hard to write a children's book. The tricky part is getting it published, and Daddy's money was able to take care of that.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||That will look beautiful next||
That will look beautiful next to some Sparty's framed acceptance letter from Michigan.

ACHA is club level hockey. It's not the same as the NCAA.

They all died.

Cut by his USHL team, ended up in the BCHL.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||People can remember it||
People can remember it however they want, just as long as they run it by you first to make sure it is acceptable, it seems.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||That's the reason small||
That's the reason small schools get hammered so often by the NCAA. Maybe at Michigan they can throw one of their army of compliance bureaucrats at the job to make sure every player is following the exact letter of the law. Not so easy at a small D-1 school that maybe has a handful of full-time employees in the entire athletic department that are already stretched thin with the thousand other BS rules they have to follow.

For the record, I prefer Big Ten titles to McDonald's All-Americans. YMMV.

Dumbass. He could have gotten life insurance for just pennies a day from Gerber Life.

You have to keep in mind that almost $0.30 of that goes into the labor of making the shorts alone. So yeah, $70 seems pretty fair.

Same number as that dancing guy on the football team, and people here wanted that guy's number retired, so QED.

It's not like it's a huge deal. No school is going to let a coach's contract "just run out". It just ups the buyout to get rid of him a tiny fraction.
Wisconsin didn't extend Mike Eaves under similar circumstances last summer and it ended up saving them about $100k in buyout money when they fired him this year. If $100K is "suicide" for Michigan State's athletic department, they've got bigger problems than Anastos.

Berkley Edwards had two touchdowns. Maybe Norfleet was the Poor Man's Edwards.

Five sets the precedent(longest an owner could have a son in the league), he gets an opportunity for appeal after three(when his son ages out)

Unless they want to play in a conference tournament with better attendance.

NCHC isn't the other conference.
|49 weeks 5 days ago||There's only 60 teams. Top 15||
There's only 60 teams. Top 15 is the upper 25% of the country. A team ranked 25th is pretty much middle of the pack.
|49 weeks 5 days ago||How good is Penn State really||
How good is Penn State really though? They've played six games against the top 15 and have a 1-5 record, and 3-8-1 record against the top 20. They put together a competent record against an abysmal schedule, but they're not great.
Also, how does Michigan go entire season and only play three games against teams in the top 15? That's an embarrassing schedule.
|51 weeks 6 days ago||They don't show more games||
They don't show more games because the ratings for the games they do show are beyond terrible and any game they show loses money for them.
|1 year 4 days ago||Minor quibble, but Boston||
Minor quibble, but Boston College was the most recent team with three top-10 scorers nationally in '13-'14(Gaudreau, Hayes, Arnold). They made the Frozen Four, losing to Union.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||The thing with MAAR and rim||
The thing with MAAR and rim attempts is that I think he's great at getting there and creating his own shot, but he's terrible at getting into the paint and passing the ball, which really limits easy rim attempts for guys like Donnal/Doyle.

Both this and the Cutler Martin suspension were too weak by a factor of 4.
