Is Purdue playing tonight?  Just wondering.

The OP has gone off the rails.  The game of hoops, as the game of life, is impossible to distill down to graphs and charts.  All the regressions or probabilities don't mean squat to organic creatures in the heat of a game.

Great man who lived a great life.  God Speed "Terrible Ted".

I suspect there is a very short list of players the Wings would not deal, and most of those names probably are playing in GR.  I agree with OP that if return on Nyquist nets them two 2nd rounders then a very good deal. 

I just hope that this does not become a complete fire-sale taking about anything for anybody of value on the team.  Even though a full rebuild is underway they still need to remain committed to getting value in their moves so the redo can be as brief as possible.

Good stuff.  My bride, as a breast cancer survivor, got to have dinner with the team a couple weeks ago.  She reported that the kids were all very impressive and also that coach is "bad ass".  I dare anyone to question my wifes assessment.  Go on with your bad blue selves ladies.

Shocked that over the course of a full 9 hours not a single person listed Ricky "The Peach" Leach, The guts and glue of the maize and blue, as a two sport athlete....He does not fit the large human criteria but lots of other mentions didn't either.  A beloved QB for Bo, he was a much better baseball player (made it to the bigs)….Have also heard off the record reports that he was a high level partier too......over-achiever!

01/17/2019 - 10:05pm Slight thread-jack...but…

Slight thread-jack...but saban has lost how many asst coaches so far this off season?  If the guy really is the tool he seems to be, this may be his Waterloo.  Too many other good to great places to coach and advance than to have to deal with his bullshit.  He may be great, but he cannot do it on his own.

01/17/2019 - 4:32pm How bout that!!!  We have…

How bout that!!!  We have agreed to disagree, have reasonable discussion about a rather volatile subject and not call one another names.  Huh!!!

I understand that an institution must look out for itself as a whole more than one small group within it.  I just think that with better leadership and forethought they could have landed what seems to be a top level coach without the tarnish (except for the radical few who likely want even the janitors at the USAG jailed).  I like to think leaders and best are just that not by avoiding anything deemed controversial, but by seeing their way clear to make good decisions with all the facts at hand.

Maybe I am wrong, too.  

01/17/2019 - 1:33pm Had the institution not been…

Had the institution not been so incompetent in making this hire public then they could have used the fact that the TEAM wanted this, thus eliminating all but a tiny amount of public outcry from the very unreasonable among us.

Admittedly, I have no way to know all of the dynamics of how this was presented to the young ladies on the team.  I am choosing to believe that they were truly free to share any concerns without negative consequence, as anything less could have really been a poop-storm if, even one on the team had a concern, shared it and then this lady was hired anyhow.

I get what you are saying, but stand by my opinion that a group of student athletes may very well have been ignored to appease the masses and keep the shine on the ole block M.  Certainly not the worst thing in the world, but also far from being the leaders and best that we like to portray.

01/17/2019 - 11:56am My only suggestion is to do…

My only suggestion is to do your best to put them in a safe car.  It became readily apparent to me when my son and his friends became drivers that new drivers have a penchant for running into shit!  Thank the good lord none of the kids in our circle of friends, team, family have been injured, but more than half have banged into anything from neighbors houses (going backwards, mind you), to parked cars (that was my lad...cop asked him if he thought he was "coming in a little hot" after looking over the scene).

FWIW my bride drives a 2016 Subaru outback and loves it.  great in the slop and has good safety ratings.

01/17/2019 - 11:30am Agree with most of your…

Agree with most of your comments on this.  However, an institution like UM cannot possibly make decisions based on public opinion.  Obviously, the stench of the Nassar scandal is still in the air and therefore much more needed to be done on the PR side of this than was done.  That is on the university.

As for Ms. Faehn.  I would have to classify her as collateral damage from the whole thing.  Despite those on this board preaching how much more they would have done had they been in her shoes, I suspect she has no problem looking herself in the mirror each day.  She was new at USAG, reported as was required and seems to be way more a part of the solution than of the problem.  Additionally, she was a coach for quite some time...Are there any questions about misconduct on her part during that time?  None that I have heard.

If she was good enough for the kids on the team, some of whom were victims themselves, then she is good enough for me.  Consider this:  What if the girls on the team were actually excited about this coach joining the team?  Does that not then make them victims of this situation, as well?  It bothers me to think that the very people the general public insists it wishes to protect may be the ones feeling the worst about the outcome...In fact, their voices were silenced all over again in the interest of doing what???  Protecting the image of an institution.  Such irony.

Go America!!! I have no particular favorite.  Just a hearty amount of admiration for every kid who will take the field.  God bless every one of them.

I do.  I actually go to more hockey games than football or hoops.

Well if pro ball doesn't work out for him, he can always fall back on his driving prowess and start up a driving instruction school.

11/30/2018 - 10:00pm A couple thoughts...coach B…

A couple thoughts...coach B certainly has an assistant.  Perhaps try to reach her/him and ask for their help.  People in those roles are typically both militant about keeping their report free of the bs, but also helpers of well-intentioned people.  Also, people possessing the character that coach has will have zero problem signing what you send and getting it back to you.  I have done this a few times with those i have looked up to through the years and it has never failed.

11/27/2018 - 6:26pm Well deserved award.  Kid…

Well deserved award.  Kid plays his heart out every play when he could take plays off and still be very good just due to his talent.  

I know injuries are almost always mysteries during the season, but I was wondering if there has been any word about his situation since the regular season is over.

How they initially marked him at the one is beyond me.  I could have seen an incomplete call initially, but out shy of the goal line, uh, no.

Regardless of where the actual truth lies, it seems he should not be mentoring young men, without a whole lot of more vetting....

Your last comment is why it makes perfect sense.  Expectations very low after a couple shit bags ran their course.  He is one of them as a grad...they can pay him if they choose to....lots of scratch in horse country.  Perfect time to get a long term big buyout deal and become, in essence, what Harbaugh has been for us. And last....have you ever been to west lafayette???   Give me Louisville 100 times before that mess.

Those Hopper ads were sheer genius, both in the direction but Hoppers acting.

Glasses are off!!  Those of you who, like me, have worn glasses since childhood know that when the glasses come off...as Kevin Hart humorously puts it...."It's about to go down!"

JMFH seems to be back in warrior mode and I both hope and suspect that his team is too.

PSU...you pedophile protecting bastards...you are next.

Who is this Ian Bunting you speak of?  We once fielded a young man who looks remarkably similar, but his name was Ole Skillet Hands.  Easy to mix them up, I guess.

Listen closer....He said,  "That's BS.  You heard me.  Watch the tape of them beating the shit out of my offense all goddamned game long....so badly, in fact, that our QB is now nicknamed Rutger!"

Bosa was a CAPTAIN on the buckeye team.  I will not give him a pass given this position I suspect he was voted into by the very guys who thought they would be doing battle with him.  I get not playing or even practicing....focus your rehab for your future, etc....but for him to just up and leave is pretty telling about the man to me....or, maybe it is an unhealthy environment down there.

That is a cool trick, Mr. Bush.  But lets up your game and crank an opponent in such a way that they complete the very same acrobatic maneuver but in a completely involuntary manner....preferably a buckeye.

10/23/2018 - 12:49pm I find all of this quite…

I find all of this quite fascinating.  Urban has gotten himself in quite a pickle.  Due to his actions, I suspect not a single person in the AD or administration has one ounce of respect left for this man....if they are really being honest with themselves, anyhow. 

I suspect this frosts his narcissistic ASS right to the boney part.

This side of the problem could be mitigated if all was good with his team.  It is not.  But, lets consider why:  Players are asked to make many personal sacrifices and to trust their coaches, all for the team.  While young, these guys are not children and certainly have full access to all media outlets.  They, and their families, have seen and heard what we have from their HC.  I suspect many do not believe or respect what he has said and done any more than I do.  But, hey kid, "trust me" says Coach Meyer,  "I know what is best for you".  

Once that statement begins falling on deaf, or even skeptical ears of even a few players, the fabric of the team is weakened if not completely torn.

All the posts and comments that Bosa has left school for his own betterment may well be true.  Consider this, though, he was CAPTAIN of this team....CAPTAIN!!!  When is the last time a Captain, injured or not, left a healthy team FOR HIS OWN BENEFIT?  His money will come.  He will be drafted. His leaving this team, supposedly his team, tells me something is very wrong in Columbus.

And it is squeezing Urban in ways he did not expect nor will he accept long term.  I think he will give it his all to get things right on the team side, and may just pull it off.  If so....the storm may pass as winning, especially down there, cures everything but cancer.  If not, he will claim some sort of medical malady that will be vague to diagnose or question and off he will go.

I saw that head butt, too.  That is perfectly delicious.

you forgot to "fuck cancer" in your conclusion.  Other than that.  Spot on.

Maybe Butthurted-to-Death??  Not sure but whatever it is Sparty is feeling it.

10/04/2018 - 12:42pm Strange as it may seem,…

Strange as it may seem, teams that become something of a dynasty tend to have this happen.  Locally, we can look to the dominant Red Wings teams of the late 90's and early '00's.  The Joe was the place to be in the mid to late 90's as the Wings Dynasty was building.  Then after the huge amount of success over a number of seasons people simply stopped going to regular season games....then even early rounds of the playoffs were poorly attended.  The expectations were that the team would win anyhow and only games of the highest of importance were worthy of attending.

Now there are a multitude of other factors at play here which many posts have addressed, as well, but I suspect their fans would show up in much bigger numbers if they thought for even a second that the game was going to be competitive.

The more I have watched this team the more evident it is to me that Shea is one of those special kind of leaders.  Sad that we played ND first.  I suspect this team would dismantle them if we played them now...

Here is hoping for a rematch with those bastards come january.

I dare say, as an open hater of all things ohio, I believe this qualifies as a case of aggressive tone deafness.  And/or a symbolic middle finger to those who dare question the integrity of the shit-hole.

At the same time, though, the only people they care about down there are there own who are likely retweeting and liking this tweet with unbridled glee.  The creator of this thing has probably already gotten a raise.
