|2 weeks 5 days ago||maybe its just the bellaire brown talking||
But if I'm a new age NBA gm with a team of outside gunners, I'm watching that game figuring out how to get a 6'9" guy who's strong, plays baller low post defense without being a shot blocker, knows how to defense pick and roll from multiple concepts, has a great grasp of big man pick and roll action including a savvy ability to slip the pick action, has a couple low post moves with soft touch, AND has improved every year he's played on my team. Yes I'm looking at you Golden State and San Antonio and Miami.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Stauskas dunk||
Waching that Stauskas dunk attempt was the most amazing miss I've seen in Michigan basketball in 20 years. Even with that miss he probably moved up 2 slots in NBA draft projections by showing that he can take guys off the dribble with pure athleticism and has the ups to finish at the rim with a strong take. That was not a 6'6" stringy frosh tweener exploiting a wide open blown assignment... that was a MAN move with some power. If any draftnik mentions Stauskas's lack of athleticism, dude should be flat out called racist.

That we're in a place where Sweet 16 is expected. Yay for superior coaching. Yay.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||agreed||
My reading is one win next week we're back on the good side of the bubble barring conference tourney miracles. Two wins next week and we're in for sure.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||LeBron couldn't play back then||
The tight shorts would affect his jumpshot much like the sleeved jersey from last week..
Plus, do you really think Mahorn would allow Bron to just storm down the lane with his shoulder down? HELL NO.

Get the NBA produced video "Motor City Bad Boys" from 1989-90 or the official NBA recap video from the 88-89 season. That had awesome behind the scenes access and quotes, the game footage and music really brought you the drama of those years. As a special treat, the Motor City Bad Boys video has the championship montage after the Pistons won their first title that was shown on CBS immediately after the game set to The Temptations "The Way You Do the THings You Do". Still makes my shed a tear in joy.
I'm hoping the 30 for 30 captures the rise of the Pistons and not just the "they ended Bird & Magic's era!", "They hated Michael Jordan!" memes that seem to dominate talk with the "experts". As much as those guys were hated around the rest of the league, they generated a fierce loyalty in Detroit unlike any other team with the possible exception of the '84 Tigers.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Wasn't a big fan||
Some of the interviews I read before hand with NdeGT didn't give me a positive feeling of real scientific debate and spark during the show.. (his treatment of "climate science" debates went down to "people burn coal and that heats up the atmosphere"-- what a overly simplistic explanation that does a disservice to the real debates going on about the observed data not matching the IPCC sanctioned models by a factor of 2, etc).
The show itself felt like a science version of the CGI overload that's apparent in production today. Apparently we can't actually discuss science anymore without HYPERVELOCITY COMPUTER GRAPHICS BECAUSE KIDS HAVE NO ATTENTION SPANS!!!! I'm apprehensive about the rest of the show, although I will give it a couple more eps. Seems like he wants to be a TV star instead of the science being the star. As to the religion debate, of course its all religious people's fault, because scientists are ALWAYS to be believed, because you know, they're scientists. Hey guess what, I'm a practicing Roman Catholic and a PhD engineer who believes that God and science co-exist, b/c God set it up that way. But I'm not to be listened b/c I don't reject religion wholesale. FAIL.
Plus, he really f*d over Pluto, and I'll never forgive him for that.

We lose both next week, we're not in.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||See my signature block||
I taught at OSU for a semester last year and parked on campus. Worst I got was the occasional "UM SUX" or "GO BUCKS" written in the dust layer of my car / windshield. I have actually had more problems at the Columbus airport parking lots or gas stations with dickheads yelling stuff to me than vandalism to my car. Signature block story not withstanding.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||and somewhere||
Gene keady's head just exploded like that guy from "scanners"

And all Goes well. Thanks tiny Jesus!
|7 weeks 3 days ago||good on rob||
I used to work for him when he ran Im sports. Sounds like he's the same good guy. But reading this, by this point in the season neither the AD or the students understand the procedure clearly?
|7 weeks 3 days ago||why am i||
Weirdly aroused by this graphic?
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I hear ya||
Sprained vaginas take at least 3-4 weeks to heal. But don't worry msu has a crack training staff that will get them ready. Until the next loss.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||stauskas especially||
Belein did some good adjustments to get nik some easy ones early then after nik started driving to the hole it was game set match for his confidence. Then the three goggles came out and it was (billy packer voice) OVAH!
|7 weeks 3 days ago||it's not like I said||
To give her a sandy Eskimo...
|7 weeks 3 days ago||#delusionalsparty||
"Well the whole game turned on that horseshit technical Payne got for hanging on the rim. Levert did the same thing and didn't get t'd up. And Dawson didn't play"
Seriously you could probably go over to rcmb and play bingo with those sentences.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I declare today||
Canuck day in Ann arbor. If anyone sees Mrs stauskas after the game, wish her a good day and give her a donut.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||blame google||
Add it to the pile of anti-american vitriol you've spooned up today.
It's days like today I wish The Mountie were still wrestling so I could look upon a truly evil Canadian. Or the Rougeau Brothers. Or Dino bravo. Or heel Chris Jericho.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I will only cheer for canada||
If a win guarantees a robin sparkles comeback tour.
"Let's go to the mall!"

Will Canada finally stop complaining about the lack of goaltender development since brodeur got old?
|7 weeks 3 days ago||gawd I hate crosby||
But its starting to be in the "because he's so good" category like Gretzky.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||don't forget the shitloads||
Of natural resources we exploit. And a couple Tim Horton's that still make their own dough instead of the bastardized Tim's in the states that Dave Thomas ruined. Another reason to hate Ohio.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I wonder if||
Haley wickenhiser will let Sidney Crosby use her Pierre Trudeau shaped dildo.
