the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

92 NCAA run the win against UCLA coming from17 or 18 down in the second half is the only thing that comes close for me. I think Jimmy King had a late tip in of a Rose miss. Didn't have the same late game heroics but comeback was improbable

I'm curious to see how Minny looks tonight. I think they are better served getting out of the big ten regular season and will give Florida a challenge (I can hope at least, right?).
|7 weeks 6 days ago||So I know it's just a few||
So I know it's just a few tourney games but I can't help but think the officiating in the big ten really aided OSU and Wiscy. Craft going for a steal on lucious and getting called for a foul seems like a good example. He clearly put his shoulder into his mans chest but Craft doesn't get why the contact is being called. OSU's offense seems incapable of beating a quality opponent the way these games are bring called.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I don't really cheer for OSU||
I don't really cheer for OSU and msu in bowl games, but it is embarrassing when the conference looks like crap. I would prefer OSU win this game but not make it to the championship. To me a bowl game and second round tourney match up are not equal.

|11 weeks 3 days ago||I thought the o line changed||
I thought the o line changed their jerseys because they were getting held partly because of excess fabric below the arm pits. I don't know how those bball jerseys would feel to wear for 40 minutes. Maybe they feel the same as a regular tank top jersey, but probably not. But the style change isn't for improved function but purely cosmetic and man does that seem stupid as hell.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||If the change is purely||
If the change is purely cosmetic I would say the players have little to no input; but in this case where the jersey itself fits differently I bet if the players tried them and said they didn't like it, that would carry a lot of weight.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||I'm definitely a "trust the||
I'm definitely a "trust the coaches" type, but this seems strange. Its just that the kid has another season of football, so the two most likely things to happen are:
1. He has a great season, receives other offers and Michigan has to decide whether to match those scholarship offers.
2. He has a meh season, maybe picks up some low level offers and Michigan takes him on as a grayshirt.
It just seems strange to offer him even a grayshirt option so early in the recruiting cycle, I could understand if he was a 2013 kid who showed great raw skills or maybe played at a small school somewhere off the beaten path. But it seems like if this kid shows promise UM will have to pony of a scholarship offer in order to keep him coming here. I guess maybe its their way of saying we like your potential but we have a small class so this is our way of showing our interest?

Chip Kelly should just draft him as a quarterback. Problem solved.

Sure but there are way less five star players each year. This may be a data point but its just not a very good one. Didn't the mathlete do a diary on star ratings and all pro selections?
|19 weeks 7 hours ago||I'm not sure losing all of||
I'm not sure losing all of our conference's coaches to what are essentially lateral moves (sure USC>msu but he's got to be on short lists for hc jobs) is a good thing. MSU even bumped his salary to make sure he didn't leave for another DC position. At some point the schools in this conference are going to need to invest their BIG network dollars back into their coaching staffs (obviously us, OSU, and PSU excluded)
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Ok well if its not Brandon||
Ok well if it's not Brandon who sat down with Adidas and layed out the expectations and vision the university has regarding uniforms, then it is somebody he directly hired. At some point representatives from this university were sold on periodically putting out alternate uniforms and then Adidas went and designed the garbage. Maybe Brandon has nothing to do with which designs were put out, but he had to have played a role in the decision that we were going to head down this road.
I'm sure Nike has pitched ideas to Alabama and I'm sure that Alabama's position is that they are going to mostly avoid any changes to their uniforms. Michigan could have taken this position with Adidas but chose differently and Brandon would have been involved in that decision.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||You said it.||
Yes how we crown the national champion in NCAA bball is inherently flawed. Single elimination and neutral courts are not the way to determine who is a better team.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||I'm not sure your definition||
I'm not sure your definition of "major" but Lansing's marathon is end of April. Great time of year to run and its a pretty fast track as long as the the wind isn't blowing 40 mph again this year. I think we had about 500 full marathon participants as opposed to about 800? at A2. I ran in a2 all through undergrad and I can only assume that the marathon course would not be fun to try to BQ on even in the spring or fall.

I think Hoke's priority for games is the following:
Ohio >>>>> Rest of Big Ten > Non-Conference > Bowl Game
If Devin Gardner needs to tote the rock 40 times to beat Ohio he will carry it 40 times. I am excited to see this offense next week with no self-imposed lilmitations because of a lack of depth at QB behind Gardner.

I would be too except I think you will see more designed runs from Gardner in that game since Hoke will be less concerned about keeping him healthy.

Well if you are going to point out the mistakes other people make you just should expect to have your own called out. Although it would appear capitalization isn't your strong suit.

You're not really giving Schofield enough credit for getting 25 yards downfield and blocking the only guy with a shot at Denard. Kwiatkowski's effort is awsome as well but the guy he blocks has a 0% chance of impacting that play.
Edit: Sure Schofield doesn't level his guy but he does exactly what he needs to do and allows Denard to make his cut and get to the endzone clean.

I see your point but the way the Yankees are hitting the best c.c. can do is keep the game tied at zero.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||When BTN was first launched||
When BTN was first launched (not sure how things have changed) they used to get third pick after ABC and ESPN of which game to broadcast and one week per year they were given the second pick from that weeks games. I am too lazy to research if this is still the case, but I assume it is.

And that said individual shares the same name with a recently demoted MLB closer. Hmmm, I don't know about you guys but I think it's legit.
