It's not just that it's easy to mistake it for another word. It's likely that auto-correct will change the word at some point and someone trying to be clever will instead look evil and stupid for charging an innocent person with a serious crime.

That's at least three transfers (thinking also of Malzone to NTM and Ways to Cal) that make sense athletically and academically (as Miami is easily the MAC's flagship in that area).

Doubtful. Bunting was clearly passed by Gentry and McKeon, so this is more like a 2/10.

He could be a solid contributor at another school, so I hope those skillet find more pig skin to fry at Cal!

Yes. Brian uses it when he's feeling like an old man that doesn't get the young whippersnappers and their culture. It's a play on "old guy doesn't know what rap is", nothing to do with sex crimes.

I can't recall whether this was already publicly expected or if it brings us one increment closer to the 85-man limit. If it's the latter, we are now at 87, correct? Or is it 86?

Thanks for taking the time. I guess my counter-response is "Bummer."

Now that Lawrence Marshall (perhaps because he's putting it together but certainly because of depth at his critical position) seems locked into the roster, I can't think of even 1 RS-Sr that Michigan won't keep. Which makes me uncomfortable. I only like being above 85 at this point in the year when the overage is less than or equal to the number of underperforming 5th years with bachelors degrees.

Sure, younger players might genuinely choose to transfer if they can't find playing time before the end of Spring Camp. But (I'm not pointing fingers here, just speaking theoretically about coaches in general), unless the transfers are from burdgeoning stars (which [/obvs] we also don't want) it's hard for fans to discriminate between that and an oversigning coach compelling himself to cut two kids to hit the roster limit.

That doubt/those optics is/are terrrrrrible. And so far Michigan has wholly avoided them.

Maintaining that forever has always been a big hope of mine.
