05/15/2018 - 5:17pm Yes, thank you. I get tired

Yes, thank you. I get tired of the left constantly misrepresenting the reality of gun deaths. Truth matters.

05/04/2018 - 12:28am The physician shortage is

The physician shortage is mostly a myth being promulgated by the AAMC. Look up the JAMA article from about 1 year ago entitled "Reassessing the Data on Whether a Physician Shortage Exists." It's more of a distribution problem than a shortage problem as the kinds of people that med schools disproportionately admit don't want to serve in rural areas.

05/03/2018 - 11:17am Again, this is a myth being

Again, this is a myth being promoted by the AAMC, the Association of American Medical Colleges, which has a financial interest in more medical schools being opened. Look at the 2017 NRMP match data (2018 isn't out yet). There were 1161 unfilled PGY-1 spots last year, including over 250 in the primary care fields FM and IM. This means people would rather go unmatched than have to do a primary care specialty in a probably undesirable location. (To be fair, about 500 of those unmatched spots were surg-prelim, so not full residencies themselves.)

05/03/2018 - 11:03am Close, #1 is actually up in

Close, #1 is actually up in Seattle at U Washington, but OHSU is #4 in FM.

04/12/2018 - 8:03pm No, one scholarship had to

No, one scholarship had to open up next year. Michigan was one over the limit before Watson left.

04/11/2018 - 1:10pm As a Bayern fan, I am

As a Bayern fan, I am absolutely delighted by this. Now lets just hope Sevilla doesn't pull off a similar upset today!

04/06/2018 - 1:57am Renowned medical

Renowned medical professional? He was a DO at MSU's med school who has a total of 6 publications listed on pubmed, on almost none of which is he the corresponding author. How is he renowned?

03/05/2018 - 5:31pm I have to imagine longevity

I have to imagine longevity is at least part of the equation. I can't imagine SF was too happy when 3rd round pick Chris Borland willingly retired after one season to avoid head trauma.

02/23/2018 - 1:15am Were the best women also

Were the best women also prohibited from playing?

02/23/2018 - 1:11am Does that offer extend beyond

Does that offer extend beyond state lines?

02/21/2018 - 10:28pm Showing off them traps.

Showing off them traps.

02/21/2018 - 10:25pm Wait, this was actually

Wait, this was actually posted? How do you not immediately realize this is an extreme outlier position? Sure you can say it, but you can't possibly be surprised by the reaction.

02/21/2018 - 10:19pm Perhaps, but do you think it

Perhaps, but do you think it would get settled in time to matter?

02/21/2018 - 10:16pm Yeah, we got spoiled with

Yeah, we got spoiled with Henne. I think Rivals rated him the best true freshman QB of the 2000-2010 decade, so people even have a close to home comparison.

02/21/2018 - 10:12pm Shoot, why not have a parade

Shoot, why not have a parade like UCF?

02/19/2018 - 5:37pm Stanford would be a likely

Stanford would be a likely candidate too. Honestly, Wisconsin could probably make such a list too.

02/19/2018 - 5:34pm If you look at any

If you look at any reputational rankings, international rankings or Nobel Prize rankings, Cal is probably pretty easily the best public university. The case for Michigan being number #2 is quite reasonable though. A fair debate could be had with UCLA.

02/13/2018 - 5:32pm You could just as easily take

You could just as easily take the gator back to the locker room for that too.

02/13/2018 - 5:26pm Yeah, it is pretty amazing

Yeah, it is pretty amazing how quickly people soured on him when he wasn't Chad Henne from day 1. That kind of freshman QB performance is the exception not the norm, even for highly rated prospects like Henne and Peters.

02/13/2018 - 5:20pm While I'm not arguing the

While I'm not arguing the ESPN targeting or not claims, to be fair, their coaches are pretty high profile. In particular, Izzo's career track record of 7 final 4's a couple national title game appearances with a win is something almost every school in the country not named Duke, UNC, Kansas or Kentucky would envy.

02/12/2018 - 1:48am How does a coach even respond

How does a coach even respond to that play in film? Just ackwardly ignore it and move on?

02/10/2018 - 2:43am Didn't Leon Hall say one

Didn't Leon Hall say one reason for coming to Michigan was to prepare for cold weather games in the NFL?

02/10/2018 - 2:30am That's sad that you have to

That's sad that you have to (rightly) list his familiarity with poor OL play as a potential positive.

02/10/2018 - 2:27am Don't tempt us like that.

Don't tempt us like that.

02/01/2018 - 3:28pm Hah, it looks like they've

Hah, it looks like they've got Brandon Graham's 9th grade year listed as his class, 2002. He wouldn't arrive at Michigan for another 4 years.

01/30/2018 - 12:55am the story of our fortunes

the story of our fortunes tonight

01/30/2018 - 12:52am yeah, no on that one. sarcasm

yeah, no on that one. sarcasm aside, probably not needed

01/30/2018 - 12:50am Yeah, the disdain for him is

Yeah, the disdain for him is quite surprising and unfortunate.

01/30/2018 - 12:46am Yeah, we need some kind of

Yeah, we need some kind of alert system for those of us that can't get on here as often.

01/30/2018 - 12:42am No threat of early NBA for

No threat of early NBA for Matthews.

01/30/2018 - 12:39am One more season like this one

One more season like this one and recruiting will get pretty hard. I think this is the last season we can chalk up to the transition gap in recruits.

01/30/2018 - 12:34am Given the number of victims,

Given the number of victims, how could it possibly be as low as 40? Granted he has the 60 for child porn already, but with over 150 victims, the 40 end seems light.

01/30/2018 - 12:32am To be fair, most had Speight

To be fair, most had Speight lower than ESPN did, but the UA game bases their invitations mostly on the ESPN rankings.

01/30/2018 - 12:24am Seriously? I assume you must

Seriously? I assume you must mean he'll be a bench player behind Peters? That's one injury away from a starter. Although based on evidence to date, we probably don't need to worry about Peters leaving early. It's not impossible Patterson wins the job outright in 2019.

01/30/2018 - 12:21am Dang. I had to look that up

Dang. I had to look that up because I didn't believe it at first. I guess I have to remind myself that he's only 28.

01/30/2018 - 12:19am It could be worse. He could

It could be worse. He could have just been born old like Greg Oden.

01/30/2018 - 12:18am Setting up for a move for

Setting up for a move for Lebron is certainly what the local media seems to think in Cleveland.

01/30/2018 - 12:16am I suppose anything is

I suppose anything is possible, but that's being generous. At least the OSU game is at home.

01/30/2018 - 12:13am It still amazes me how that

It still amazes me how that Nebraska loss didn't hurt us more.

01/30/2018 - 12:12am Yeah, but we can at least be

Yeah, but we can at least be glad it was against this level of competition and not in one of the bigger games.

01/29/2018 - 4:48pm One problem, it's not a

One problem, it's not a racist caricature.

01/27/2018 - 7:10pm 247sports doesn't list an

247sports doesn't list an offer from ND yet. I take it they're just a little behind in updating his offer sheet? Or is ND sort of his preferred school that he's waiting on an offer from?

01/25/2018 - 12:15am Thome, one of the two

Thome, one of the two greatest power hitters of that era (with Griffey) who didn't need roids.

01/24/2018 - 4:02pm Haha, I get it. Well played.

Haha, I get it. Well played.

01/06/2018 - 10:25pm Yeah, I think the announcers

Yeah, I think the announcers even said he's under 240 right now.

01/06/2018 - 2:15pm That's about the 5th or 6th

That's about the 5th or 6th time he's been in the backfield this half. Rating bump coming soon given his performance against top talent?

12/14/2017 - 11:32am Have you seen our 2019 class

Have you seen our 2019 class so far? It might at least put you at ease regarding the DL.

12/11/2017 - 5:54pm World class education in

World class education in general studies or some other BS field? Probably not. The Michigan name will help. The education received in a worthless major not so much.

12/11/2017 - 2:15am Maybe that's why it's only

Maybe that's why it's only 60% for NBAers while it's 78% for NFLers.

12/10/2017 - 7:56pm To be fair that's true for

To be fair that's true for the majority of NFLers (and NBAers). To even up the betting we might need to set a tighter timeline. How about two years? One year?
