Ohio State is obviously a can of Potato Soup
|2 days 21 hours ago||Yes, it's definitely far||
Yes, it's definitely far less, because if this shit weren't against NCAA rules there'd be way more people willing to send money their way for a variety of things. Endorsement deals being one obvious one.
|2 days 21 hours ago||The Bloom thing was worse||
The Bloom thing was worse than that - his Olympic sport wasn't his NCAA sport. He played football at CU and was an Olympic-level skier. But he couldn't take a lot of what every other skier could because of NCAA rules if he wanted to play an entirely different sport. As if, say, Rossignol was going to be funneling money to a punt returner on a football team.

|5 days 22 hours ago||Definitely a bad year when||
Definitely a bad year when the conference looks most similar to the perennial two-team SEC. The best of the B1G aren't as good as usual, and there aren't as many good teams as usual either.

The last one you bolded is a complement to Beilein's offense.
Also "if they're not making shots I don't think they can beat good teams" is right out of the sports section of Duh (from the Norm Macdonald Weekend Updates).

The great part though is that I'm pretty sure right after that vid ends Michigan stole the ball and got a layup. Ball don't lie.
|1 week 15 hours ago||We certainly got more of the||
We certainly got more of the ref garbage, but they also took Lynch out of the game for Minny and one or two of the calls on him were also garbage. One was a classic makeup call on an inbounds before they even threw it in.
But the call on MAAR when the guy flopped out of bounds, the foul/tech horse crap, the Robinson block called a foul, and a whole lot more. And the refs refused to talk to the press at all after the game because of course.

At this point I'd rather have Xavier Simpson guarding Happ than Donnal. Dude is just getting abused by whoever he's guarding, every team seems to go after him the moment he comes in the game.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Because Michigan's semester||
Because Michigan's semester ends so early, they can do the bulk of their spring practice in late March/early April and then still fit the trip after finals to be in the 45 day window, and since it's after classes are done, it isn't a university break that counts apparently.
Players probably also could opt out of it but why the hell would anyone opt out of a free trip like this?

Rape, and covering up rape to win a few more football games, being bad things is political?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||On the contrary, opinions||
On the contrary, opinions absolutely can be wrong when they are contradicted by facts.
Case in point: white supremacists, for example, have opinions. They are wrong. Very, very, indisputably wrong. Similarly as dumb: the very small group of people out there who are flat-earth truthers. Their opinion is wrong, because the earth is not flat.

"Junior Lourawls "Tum Tum" Nairn has experience on his side but he's only hit 9-of-24 three-pointers even though opponents are more than willing to let him shoot; "
That's not even a bad percentage, just a guy who doesn't have confidence to take the shots. He's a wretched 7 for 17 from the free throw line this year, so I have to think confidence in his shot in general is a major, major problem.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||The reason everyone flipped||
The reason everyone flipped out about Edsall is a few weeks before the offer was pulled, the kid had specifically asked after Edsall was hired if he still had the offer and was told yes, and then he'd been visited by staff only days before they pulled the offer. We all agree communication could have been better with Swenson but Harbaugh wasn't actively trying to keep the guy only to then pull the rug out only days later.
Of course Greenstein would try to equate the situations because of his weird thing for Harbaugh

An excellent OL coach is likely to get better RB results than an excellent RB coach. Unless you are Barry Sanders, you need the OL to create the crease/hole.

Leopold's beer was a diacetyl-addled mess the one time I went there. Every single beer tasted like butterscotch. Seriously the worst beer I've ever had at a brewery. A few months later when they packed up and left for Colorado I said "good fricking luck selling that horseshit beer in Colorado" and it seems they ditched the beer and just did spirits after the move, which, smart move. They were decent at the spirits when they were in Ann Arbor and they've gotten better at it since.

There's a better chance of Stanley Spadowski coaching Michigan than there is of Guy Gadowsky leaving Penn State for a different college job right now.

The weather was miserable, Jeff Smoker had just been suspended for drugs leading to some entertaining signs in the student section, and Ronald Bellamy had a day
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Motte leaving wasn't really||
Motte leaving wasn't really that surprising if you knew how the Blackhawks felt about him, and that was before he had his monster year on the CCM line. I fully expected him to leave, given the number of slots available with the Hawks this year due to guys they had to let go due to the cap or performance. His NHL team wanted him to come out.
And he indeed started the season on the NHL roster and was playing. Getting hurt in November kinda derailed him and he (and Schmaltz from North Dakota, who likewise left college after last year before his eligibility was up) is with the minor league squad for now to get ice time, but he'll probably be back again this year.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Oh, I suspect the AD and||
Oh, I suspect the AD and University President who instituted the suspensions probably did not look kindly on the coach directly going against them in that tweet. It was probably the last straw though, the AD didn't hire Claeys and I'm sure would rather have a guy he hired.

Their best regular season wins were @Maryland and home vs Northwestern. It's as weak of a 8-4 as you'll ever see.

Probably just premature. It'd be frankly shocking if he decided to come back. I mean, we'd love to have him, but you don't expect a sure-fire first rounder to come back.

I kinda like these guys not telling anyone. The reaction from DPJ's dad was gold.

1 in 5 isn't just during college you intentionally lying assault-minimizing piece of garbage. People like you who so want to pretend this isn't a problem are only somewhat less of a problem than the assaulters themselves, because people like you contribute heavily to the culture that makes women who are assaulted not bother to report it.
If you don't know multiple women who have been assaulted, you either aren't friends with women or they don't trust you enough to tell you. And I can certainly see why.

He played well when he played, and he was behind a senior likely 1st round pick and senior likely 2nd or 3rd round pick who rightly got the bulk of the playing time. That he didn't jump in front of experienced, really good players is no indictment of his skills. He'll be real good next year as he slots into the starting lineup.
