Why does the degree matter?  I wonder if it is a university requirement.

01/14/2019 - 11:38pm I think the starting 5 of…

I think the starting 5 of 2019 may be a bit better...a bit.  

Burke edges Simpson, but that would be easily the most tantalizing matchup.

Sophomore Poole is better all around than Freshman Stauskas.

Hardaway plus Robinson are about equal to Matthews plus Brazdekis.  I would give the edge to 2019 because of the shot getting ability.

McGary and Teske are about even.

Ekpe Udoh.  Backup 5.  Rim protector.

I think a far more interesting question would limit the choice of players to those who would arguably not start on this roster.

12/13/2018 - 12:58pm Let's consider the playbook…

Let's consider the playbook as 100% for OSU.  What percentage of that can be withheld throughout the year to reasonably guarantee getting to OSU undefeated?

12/07/2018 - 11:06pm Umm.  What?

Umm.  What?

11/30/2018 - 1:53pm True, but we look at our…

True, but we look at our football team pre OSU and we're riding high then it happened.  Then in hindsight we saw the bad matchup.

I'm saying that I want to see how our team performs against teams with different strengths than what we have seen already.  Villanova and UNC are not defensive juggernauts, so we can't say we have seen all potential weaknesses exposed.  

 

11/30/2018 - 9:20am I think our team is great,…

I think our team is great, but want to see how it performs against a top defense.

11/28/2018 - 9:41pm Another thing to consider. …

Another thing to consider.  Let's, for arguement's sake assume that OSU cares more about this game than us.  At this point, they are an elite program that doesn't have other demons to exorcise.  They don't need to worry about programs that they are trying to elevate themselves over, because they are at the top.  We can't afford that luxury, and have to be more week to week. 

Until we can start looking past those opponents, to an extent, we can't afford to sell out for OSU.  For us that could mean 2-4 losses if we do so.  For OSU it maybe turns into 1 loss.  

11/28/2018 - 6:12pm Why do we assume that the…

Why do we assume that the game is not emphasized here?  

09/08/2018 - 9:01pm How on earth is it likely…

How on earth is it likely that he is going to be better than Peters and Milton?  He is in high school now.  Next year will be a true freshman going up against a sophomore and senior.  

09/08/2018 - 8:48pm I don't understand why this…

I don't understand why this is so important to some people.  Speculating or wishing Dylan is better than Peters and then patting youself on the back whan Dylan gets in the game first is ridiculous.  It also seems that many almost want Peters to transfer, by the constant speculation that he's going to transfer if he loses his job.  How about rooting for players on the team regardless of where they fall on the depth chart.  I hope nobody transfers and honestly do not care who gets the first snaps off the bench.

08/30/2018 - 1:48pm All kids are different, so…

All kids are different, so take advice with a grain of salt.

My 2 cents.  Getting kids enough sleep is very important and very difficult.

your kid will be a lot like you.  That is a warning coming from experience.

08/18/2018 - 1:16pm I use an auction draft and…

I use an auction draft and my league is a single qb league with 10 teams.  Auction drafts are the best.  

If it is a single qb league wait on the qb until the later rounds.  By later i mean 7+ 

I focus first on getting top tier rbs and wrs. Then i may snag a te then qb.

will lutz is a great kicker!  I like to draft a late round bye kicker then when a early round bye kicker gets dropped swap out after his bye is over and forget about that position.  

07/29/2018 - 2:12pm Contra should be included…

Contra should be included twice.  Once for the game and again for having the greatest cheat code in the history of video gaming.

West Suburb of Milwaukee for 5 years via Cleveland via Flint

Pros:

Cheese, beer, nice people

Cons:

Road construction

Also the Firestick worked very well for me.

I have Hulu with live TV and it seems fine.  It has all the important channels including BTN.  With the service you get all the TV and movies that are a part of the standard hulu package. Only $40/mo too.

06/10/2018 - 10:48pm Funny I started doing the…

Funny I started doing the same thing a few years ago.  One of those books was Moby Dick.  It was a chore to read, but I finished.  Not sure I fully appreciated it, so I may have to reread it at some point.

My favorite book: The Count of Monte Cristo

Dracula is really good too.

Airplane. Can't top that one.

Manual transmissions being increasingly rare. I HATE power seats.

I don't watch horror, so this is probably fairly mild. I watched The Lobster, and am still unsure how I feel about that one.

Wouldn't that be Erie? Ha. Wasn't the north randall mall the 2nd biggest in the country at one point.

Bought a new router. Got rid of cable and signed up for Hulu with live TV.

I now own row 46 in the big house. Didn't realize they sold those.

Can I brag? Lost David Johnson, Dalvin Cook, and Watson. I now lead the league in points for.

11/02/2017 - 7:07pm If it makes you feel

If it makes you feel better...I had David Johnson, Dalvin Cook, Chris Carson, and Deshaun Watson on my team.

Thought I had a pretty good draft too. Now my rbs are cj anderson, alvin kamara and derrick henry

A former coworker of mine, at an engineering firm, moonlights as an amateur wrestler. Same guy had about a two week marriage to a stripper who apparently had cut somebody's throat with a knife.

01/19/2017 - 11:48pm I was CEE 2008 with an

I was CEE 2008 with an emphasis in structural. In hindsight I did not like the curriculum, and I felt unprepared for work after college. Civil Engineering is such a broad topic, and I had to take many classes that were pretty irrelevant to my career. I highly suggest looking into a curriculum that is more focused on the desired field of study.

12/04/2016 - 11:42am It should be Alabama, OSU,

It should be Alabama, OSU, Clemson, and Washington. Conference championship games are meaningless and should be ignored. PSU has no case over anyone because they have 2 losses. The same could probably be said of Michigan.

It would be cool to see Washington slip to 5th to punish the weak non conference schedule. If they do, hopefully it will lead to better scheduling amongst any contenders in the future.

05/03/2016 - 8:13pm Just a few years back Beilein

Just a few years back Beilein changed assistant coaches and we had three players transfer. Two were former 4* recruits. I can't remember what happened the year after...

04/02/2016 - 9:29pm I went to a game in State

I went to a game in State College and the stadium was big and all but when I entered at field it seemed small. I think a really cool thing about the Big House is that you enter roughly half way up. You are immediately surrounded by fans and the stadium.

03/19/2016 - 2:57pm Um unless /s he didn't play

Um unless /s he didn't play his first year. Eligibility wise he is only a sophomore. This is his second year playing against other teams.

03/19/2016 - 2:51pm He had a few great games, but

He had a few great games, but let's just ignore those and assume that he is the sum of his worst games. He just finished his second year playing, so I don't see why we should be expecting him to be an All American. I also don't see why it is unreasonable to expect him to improve the next year to two. He can go for 20-10 so why cant we expect 12-8?

03/19/2016 - 1:53pm Disagree. We saw what Donnal

Disagree. We saw what Donnal is capable of, and it looked pretty good to me. He just needs to do it with consistency.

03/19/2016 - 1:07pm Michigan fans not openly

Michigan fans not openly berating a player after a bad game or play. A sophomore big man is a sophomore, not a senior. I expect major improvements in the frontcourt next year with Wagner and Donnal.

03/19/2016 - 1:01pm Agree. I don't see why

Agree. I don't see why Donnal and Wagner can't be on the court at the same time. If Donnal develops his shot more we could have great spacing with a big lineup.

03/19/2016 - 12:59pm Consistency from Donnal. He

Consistency from Donnal. He has shown he can be good, just has to keep it together. I'd like to see him shoot more 3s.
Wagner at the 4.
Doyle turning into a Jordan Morganlike player.
Healthy Irvin.
3 players who can dribble and drive and finish.
Chatman as a defensive specialist

03/07/2016 - 8:26am He's referring to Xavier,

He's referring to Xavier, SMU, MSU, and Indiana I assume. Could probably include UConn too.

I see a lot that the lack of seniors is an issue, but really it is the loss of two major contributors. It doesn't really matter what class they are in. There was a plan to have two of our best players play, but instead they don't and can't be replaced till next year. It's not a young issue, but rather a personnel issue.

He got tackled pretty hard there.

We have two and are expecting our third soon. One word PATIENCE. Our oldest does things and comes around to things in her own time. Being patient and knowing when/how to encourage has been our biggest challenge.

01/08/2016 - 8:05am Last day at my current

Last day at my current company and my birthday. I'm starting at a different place Monday.

01/06/2016 - 5:46pm What we need to do is the

What we need to do is the following:

Add Syracuse, Boston College, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, Louisville, and UConn.

West Division: Michigan, OSU, MSU, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Northwestern, Indiana, Purdue, Illinois, Nebraska, Iowa

East Division: Syracuse, Boston College, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, Louisville, UConn, PSU, Rutgers, Maryland

Have a championship game until the cable business model collapses.  After it does remove the East Division from the conference.

01/05/2016 - 2:48pm He's holding the ball as if

Definitely a half court shot.  He's holding the ball as if he were to push rather than shoot.  I don't want to believe in a Harbaugh that shoots free throws like that.
