“Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either -- but right through every human heart -- and through all human hearts. This line shifts. Inside us, it oscillates with the years. And even within hearts overwhelmed by evil, one small bridgehead of good is retained. And even in the best of all hearts, there remains ... an unuprooted small corner of evil."
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago: 1918-1956

Except Novak could dunk.
|4 days 6 hours ago||Groce||
It's also fun to watch Groce since a lot of the bombs were dropped right in front of the Illini bench. I think Groce's go-to move is the "Crestfallen" - let neck and shoulders go limp simultaneously while dropping the head from facing forward to facing the floor.
|4 days 6 hours ago||After about 20 cycles||
After about 20 cycles through, it still doesn't get old. Just in case you were wondering.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Mentally tough||
Morgan is one of the most mentally tough players I've seen at Michigan in a while. Didn't let any of his setbacks phase him. Just showed up and went to work, all while getting an engineering degree. What a freaking stud.

Jeff Goodman's guess:
|6 days 9 hours ago||Donnal||
I think Donnal is going to surprise a lot of people. He is a good shooter, very smart on the court, and has strength to go along with a bit of a mean streak. I think he'll be next years' breakout player.
|6 days 9 hours ago||Yeah, I wouldn't mind||
Yeah, I wouldn't mind snagging a Masters degree at UM for free, either.
|6 days 14 hours ago||Kinda disagree.||
They're "NBA ready" in the sense that they'd probably get drafted based of their potential; however, most of them, as we've seen this season and last, aren't "NBA ready" in the sense that they could earn meaningful minutes in an NBA rotation based on their current skill-sets.
|1 week 2 hours ago||My dad||
My dad hires people fairly often and considers the Wonderlic test to be a pretty good predictive tool for whether interviewees will be a good fit. He had my little sister take it when she was in seventh grade and if the interviewee can't score better than her he won't hire them.

IF ONLY MSU WAS HEALTHY THEYD...lose to Illinois at home. Lulz.
|1 week 2 days ago||Vonleh is gone||
Vonleh is gone, so they're left with Ferrell and some highly rated guys who haven't played well this season and are still very unproven. Assemly Hall is a beast in its own right but that game is definitely winnable.
|1 week 2 days ago||2 of 3||
I think you're right. I'd bet Stauskus and GRIII leave, and McGary comes back.
|1 week 2 days ago||Donnal||
I think Donnal is going to be really, really good. Like 2nd (possibly 1st) team All B1G by the end of his time here. He's got a mean streak, great court vision, he's a good inside/out shooter, and has solid athleticism. He's going to be perfect for this offense.
|1 week 2 days ago||Needs||
For 2015, I think the main priorities should be a guy who can play the 2/3 and shoot, as well as a 4/5 guy. Walton, in my estimation, is unlikely to be an early NBA draft entrant, so we're set on PG until 2016. As such, I think we can wait til the 2016 class to take a PG, so there's no need to be desperate if our top 2015 PG prospects don't bite.
Predictions for 2015 class:
-Kennard is ideal for the 2/3 spot, but I have a feeling it'll end up being someone who's not heavily on our radar right now.
-I think we'll snag Ellenson for the 4/5 spot if the coaches really go after him, and I think they'll end up adding Boudreux too.
-As to a PG for 2015, I think they strike out with Brunson and bank it for 2016.

Someone should really go to the hospital disguised as a medical deliveryman and check out his room to confirm.
|1 week 3 days ago||Duke lacrosse||
Duke lacrosse should be sufficient evidence for why a lower standard is not a good thing. Those players put themselves in a very bad situation, but committed no crime. Now, most of them have had to move, change their names, and still can't find employment because the faculty and students were tripping over themselves to expel the players instead of, you know, letting competent authorities handle it.
|1 week 3 days ago||The difference||
The difference between "sexual misconduct" and "rape" is merely semantic for practical purposes, because the only "official list" that matters these days is Google. People without any access to the information necessary to make an informed decision (including, but not limited to the Student Gov't) have decided he's guilty, so he is because Google says he is.
|1 week 3 days ago||Sure||
Sure, but getting caught smoking behind the high school by a teacher is a bit different than rape allegations, especially when charges were never brought on the rape allegations.
Schools shouldn't be allowed to have such discretion when a mistaken decision as to someone's guilt could ruin that person's life. Good luck to Gibbons with finding a decent job, like, ever. He's basically a sex offender now without the conviction/jail time.
|1 week 3 days ago||My big question||
My big question: Why does the Federal government allow the University to expel a student for essentially committing a "crime" for which he was never tried and convicted?
1) Lower burden of proof. The University only has to meet a preponderance of an evidence standard whereas police must prove beyond a reasonable doubt. If anything, the University's standard should be higher since they have no power to force production of evidence. Speaking of which....
2) The University can't force people to testify, can't force production of CC TV, e-mails, phone records, etc. Police can do that. Generally, having evidence helps when you're trying to figure out if someone did something wrong.
3) The police have people who are specifically trained to handle these sorts of investigations. The University may have people who investigate (sometimes), but they're not gonna be as good as the police and it's a little hard to investigate when you can't force people to turn over evidence.
I could go on and on.

No words necessary when you have 4 National Championship rings (out of 8 appearnaces), 11 Final Four appearances, 12 ACC titles, and 3 Naismith Coach of the Year awards.

|1 week 3 days ago||Yes.||
|1 week 3 days ago||Umm||
I love Beilein and thinks he's definitely an elite coach, but Coach K is the best coach in the country and I don't think there's any debate.

|1 week 5 days ago||Other offers||
In addition to MSU, Byrd had offers from UK, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, and a few others. Looks like Izzo really took one for the team by adding Byrd.

Since Ace is too polite to do so, I'm just gonna drop this here once more...
|1 week 5 days ago||Given a 2nd shot||
Given a 2nd shot at the 2013 draft, Joe Dumars traded the Pistons' picks for an underrated young gun named Baron Davis because he heard from a friend that Davis dominated at UCLA and his game would really translate to the NBA level.
|1 week 6 days ago||Bad Logic 101||
Bad Logic 101:
1. Many, but not all, of the citizens of Town X are racist.
2. Duck Guy lives in Town X.
3. Therefore, Duck Guy is a racist.
This is a logical fallacy because Duck Guy could be one of the people in Town X that isn't racist. Carl should revoke your A.

Exactly how are they racist?
