"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.

This is Bob Barker reminding you to help control the douche population, have your Notre Dame grad hermeneutered?

It probably has. Rafael Palmeiro won a gold glove when he played about 20 games in the field and spent most of the season at DH, and that was voting done AFTER the season.
With two or three returning starters who were actually quite good potentially being beaten out for their jobs, you have to think the back 7 is going to be pretty damn good this year.

Of course Rosenberg likes him, he's a "Michigan Man" who talks in cliches about toughness and smashmouth football, and he's not RichRod.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Barrett had the redshirt year||
Barrett had the redshirt year to study the playbook but with the injury he might have only slightly more reps than a true freshman. They're probably going to lose a couple of games as a result. Even in a Meyer offense there's still decisionmaking that you can't reproduce in film study.
Of course, by the last game of the season he'll have had plenty of reps (barring injury) or he'll have been bad enough that they've already made a switch.

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.

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.

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.

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.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Even if he's "just a shooter"||
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.

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.

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

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.
|3 weeks 23 hours 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"
|3 weeks 1 day 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.

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.
