I watched the Harvard-Yale game on Friday. It looked like two good high school teams. We would mop the floor with Harvard on an off night. That would not worry me at all.
|1 day 10 hours ago||I disagree on the age issue.||
I disagree on the age issue. Big men tend to take a little extra time to develop, so teams won't be upset about him spending that time in college rather than while he's on their payroll. Also, rookies usually stay on a given team for 5 years or less, so if they draft him at 23, he's still only 28 after those 5 years.
|1 day 10 hours ago||This is actually a good||
This is actually a good talking point, it just needs a new title.
|1 day 10 hours ago||I would not say Mitch is||
I would not say Mitch is likely. He had a short stunt of good games followed by a season long injury. In sure teams want to see him come back before they use a pick on him. He has the most to gain by coming back.
|2 days 15 hours ago||You don't remember most of||
You don't remember most of the Lloyd Carr era, do you? I know you're young, so I'm sure that's why, but don't compare Bo Pelini to Lloyd Carr. Carr went to 5 BCS bowls and won a national championship. We won or shared something like 5 Big Ten championships in his 13 years. That is not what Pelini is going.
|2 days 15 hours ago||That might (but probably not)||
That might (but probably not) work for a team that's rolling. But those teams usually aren't hiring new coaches. But most coaches aren't going to leave a job making 500k+ in most cases for a job where they need to win 9 games just to match their salary.
The idea might work if you severely changed the numbers. What if you're rebuilding? No one wants the possibility of making shit money for a job that takes a ton of work.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Most schools that are||
Most schools that are division 1, are so in all sports. There are some exceptions, but not many. Some sports don't have D2 (like hockey) so a lot of the D2 schools, like Ferris State, play D1 hockey. But typically you are in one division for all sports.
FCS is still D1. Football is the only sport who split D1 into two subdivision, but they are all considered D1 schools. The poster above who said "they are not D1, they are 1-AA" in wrong. Not because 1-AA no longer exists, but because what it became, FCS, is still D1.

It's appropriate for you to post that, of all people.
|2 days 16 hours ago||His post game needs to||
His post game needs to compliment his other talents?
Post game: "Hello alley-oop, you were mighty exciting today. And offensive rebounding, you sure gave us some great opportunities. Everyone, fantastic work today."
|2 days 16 hours ago||But a 3-pt shot would do it.||
But a 3-pt shot would do it. With his athleticism and build, he will be a solid defender and rebounder for a SF. But SF is a scoring position in the NBA, and he needs to be able to do that. If he could up his deep ball, that might be enough.
|2 days 18 hours ago||This is great. My brother in||
This is great.
My brother in law bet me before the 2011 season that Henne would be out of the NFL in 5 years, and I took it. If he completes this contract, I win the bet.
|3 days 16 hours ago||I agree. But what can you||
I agree. But what can you do? They won all of their games, and they were in the Final Four a year ago. The best thing to do is put the highest 2-seed in their region, and then it's not all that different.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Yeah, I know what you mean.||
Yeah, I know what you mean. That's why I wanted to make it clear i wasn't calling you racist or anything, just poking fun at your comment.
|3 days 16 hours ago||WIthout calling you names,||
WIthout calling you names, "No idea he was such a well spoken guy" is one of those things no one ever says about a white guy. You may not have know he went to Butler, which makes him like half white anyway.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Agreed. Although I wouldn't||
Agreed. Although I wouldn't mind seeing Louisville to get a little revenge. I wouldn't be surprised if the committee made that happen - would be good for TV.
|3 days 18 hours ago||If Stauskas played baseball,||
If Stauskas played baseball, he'd be batting 1.200.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Because non conference games||
Because non conference games exist. The argument for Wisconsin is: split season series with Michigan, and did better than Michigan in all other games, with a comparable schedule strength.

And Hank's sister is names Hilary.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Beat Indiana and win one game||
Beat Indiana and win one game in the BTT and we're a 2 seed I think. Beat Indiana and win the BTT and we have a legit shot at the last one seed.
|3 days 19 hours ago||Man, I think any of those two||
Man, I think any of those two seeds should be above Villanova. They should not be a 1 seed.
|3 days 19 hours ago||You could argue for us ahead||
You could argue for us ahead of Kansas if Embiid is more hurt than we know. If doesn't play in the Big 12 tourney and Kansas struggles a bit, the committee would, and should, take that into account. Hell, injuries aside, if we win our conference tourney and Kansas doesn't, we would likely be above them.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Sometimes the teams we hate||
Sometimes the teams we hate contain people we don't (or shouldn't). This seems like one of those times.
|3 days 21 hours ago||If your team has a student||
If your team has a student section with a name as cool as Orange Crush, you need to suck less.
|4 days 14 hours ago||This is a game that we should||
This is a game that we should have won, and completely nullifies the Detroit win. Everyone can recalibrate their expectations back down.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Boy, we look bad. I mean, we||
Boy, we look bad. I mean, we look like the more talented team, but super sloppy. This game has come down to us making way too many mistakes, and them making far fewer of them. Can't kill yourself.
|4 days 14 hours ago||We've been killed on||
We've been killed on face-offs and haven't been great at getting GBs. If we can actually get the ball in the second half we should be in good shape.
|4 days 15 hours ago||After 1, HPU up 3-1.||
After 1, HPU up 3-1.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Late in the first, Michigan||
Late in the first, Michigan is down 2-1. High Point has dominated possession so far.
|4 days 15 hours ago||It's possible, but I bet he||
It's possible, but I bet he gets Jalen, Juwan and Webber. Jalen and Webber were the top two in-state players, and were top-10 nationally. Any coach would have recruited them. And Juwan was another top-top guy in our backyward who was high in Michigan early and committed early. I'd bet we'd have that trio.

FYI - I'm showing baseball on the link, not lacrosse (even though the heading says MLAX: Michigan at High Point)
