Nope, there's a fund each school has (I forget what it's called) and they are allowed to use it on things like that. A&M used it to help convince a guy who might have left for the draft to stick around another year by covering a fat insurance policy on him.

Apparently she saw Michigan's dong forest and got the wrong idea on how to train.

As a Chicago resident I'll enjoy going to the game, but to do this after season ticket renewals is pretty terrible form.
And with any luck the weather will be better than last year's February 7, when it was a balmy 4 degrees for the high and wind chills well below zero.

It's only 240 miles from Yost.

Lots of screens with guys like Norfleet, Hayes and Canteen around doesn't bother me all that much, now that we have an offensive coordinator who will actually run the screen plays that make sense for that type of guy. 3-wides with the slot and Darboh or Chesson to one side as the blocking WR for a bubble, for example, seems like it would work pretty well.

I will say this: Soldier Field will be a much better place to watch an outdoor hockey game than Michigan Stadium or Spartan Stadium based on how the seating was built.

I'm just glad this wasn't asking creepy rapey fashion photographer Terry Richardson about our defense.

It's actually based on your internet provider having a deal with them. My internet isn't cool enough so despite having DirecTV, I do not get ESPN3.

Even if he's "just a shooter" and is a guy off the bench, that's a guy worth having around. And he's tall. And he's already played a year in a Beilein-influenced offense under one of Beilein's old assistants. And he'll have a year in a S&C program that has produced some pretty good results so far before he gets on the court.
I'm not seeing a ton of downside here. I mean, people freaked out over using a scholarship on Spike at the time and he's been a contributor to the team the last two years. Plus, unless this kid completely blows up (a good problem to have) we're going to have a 6'8"+ 3-bomber when he's 23, 24 years old because he took a prep year and is now redshirting due to the transfer.

2001, first year of law school, against Miami (Not That Miami).
It was Ben Roethlisberger's first college start, actually. You could see he was legit talent already, Michigan's D was all over him but he stood in pretty well, made some bad mistakes as freshmen are wont to do, but the arm and talent were obvious. There were a few "wait, this guy is a freshman at Miami?" type plays. And as he does in the NFL, he was taking an absolute beating out there and kept getting up.

I guess Kaminski wasn't "taking care of his business" since that was mentioned (along with academics) the other two times he was suspended.

Obviously Dombrowski was joking around, but I not sure the entire A's farm system would be enough for the White Sox to trade Sale given his performance and contract.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Probably heresy to say it,||
Probably heresy to say it, but Verlander would make a nice setup/closer in the playoffs. Just let him rear back and fire for an inning or two. If he doesn't put it back together as a starter it might be a reasonable option.

Austin Jackson appears to be part of the deal...

Good thing they didn't try to acquire any bullpen help because apparently just putting on the Tigers uniform causes bullpen arms to burninate games

|2 weeks 5 days ago||Have to assume Castellanos||
Have to assume Castellanos and Smyly would be gone in a Price trade since the Tigers minor league system has pretty much nothing left in it, at least as far as anything good anywhere near the majors. Maybe Iglesias too.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I believe last year's team||
I believe last year's team stunk because of Lewan about as much as I believe the Red Sox stunk this year because of AJ Pierzynski.
Which is to say, I don't believe it at all. Chemistry doesn't call plays, it doesn't cause guys to just completely fail at blocking, etc. There is chemistry involved in a good offensive line but it comes from playing together a lot and knowing what the other guys are going to do, not "man, that guy next to me is a dick, why don't I not block this guy and get my QB splattered"
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Cespedes is only signed||
Cespedes is only signed through next year and his reputation outstrips his production. They have so many platoon toys now, they're going to be a real pain in the ass. Start a righty and they send in their righty mashers. Start a lefty and you see the bulk of the lineup turn over. Even more so in the playoffs, when you can easily drop a pitcher or two from the roster given the days off that are involved and add some other specialists to the bench.
Lester/Spellcheck/Kazmir/Gray is a pretty solid playoff rotation.

I might not be able to get to the powerpoint presentation due to work but post-powerpoint beers might be doable.

DJ Gallo: The Ray Rice lesson is clear: If you're caught smoking weed, quickly tape the joint to a woman's face and punch it.

Eh, pretty much every year of college was better than senior year of high school. Might be different for athletes, but then again, the NTDP guys aren't exactly having the typical high school experience either.

I've sat in the north end zone for all the Michigan games I've been to at Purdue due to going with alum relatives. The seats are fine, I had a great view of the hook-and-lateral play that beat us in '08 :(
|6 weeks 1 day ago||There actually is a weight||
There actually is a weight limit for heavyweight wrestlers (285, was 275 until about 10 years ago), but I have to imagine it's pretty rare for any decent high school heavyweight to be cutting weight to get to the limit. You run into the limit when your a friggin' freak like Brock Lesnar, but I'm sure he wasn't up against the limit in high school either.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The keeper is almost always||
The keeper is almost always the least of our problems. It's really the one spot on the field the US has truly produced world-class players. Timmy is great, but Guzan's no slouch himself, and surely others will show up as well.

Algeria has been playing fairly well. Nigeria not so much. But Germany is highly unlikely to lose at this stage. It's been forever since they've gone out before the quarterfinals, and this team looks strong.
