06/18/2018 - 8:02pm OSU and PSU have always…

OSU and PSU have always seemed to have great linebacking corps: if/when UM gets there (possibly this year?), its going to be glorious to watch... can't remember the last UM team that was good-to-great at all three LB positions

06/14/2018 - 1:49pm the ncaa 'gets it right on…

the ncaa 'gets it right on two rule changes/issues' ...thus confirming the old adage that 'a stopped clock gets the time right twice per day'

06/02/2018 - 3:04pm saw Pearl Jam

when they 'opened' for Smashing Pumpkins and Red Hot Chili Peppers - in a bldg that used to be a Kroger

best singers female: Elizabeth Fraser - Cocteau Twins, Aretha Franklin, Ann Wilson, Tina Turner, Annie Lennox & Nina Simone

best male singers: Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Bowie, Sinatra, Mercury, Roy Orbison, Daltrey, Plant, Vedder, RJ Dio, Sting, Cornell

05/16/2018 - 9:34pm excluding $30M QB's - I'm amazed

at how low many NFL players are paid in light of the short shelf life of the average NFL player - and how owners can cut contracted players

i understand the bigger rosters (NFL) and 162 games vs 16, but the fact that MLB players all get guaranteed dollars/contracts, i could never understand why NFL Players Association couldn't have done better for their players

05/16/2018 - 3:52pm $500M does not undo the damage

...but many times in our society, large payouts (civil cases or otherwise) are a meaningful substitute for 'justice' that appropriately grabs the attention of people in oversight positions, and serves as further motivation for them to get their house in order.

One would think that the essential moral concept of protecting children from pedophiles would be enough motivation, but as we've all seen, its obviously not - and so penalizing the offenders and enablers with serious prison time and financial hurt is also necessary.

05/09/2018 - 4:46pm the most effective

team sport marketing concept is still...winning

05/08/2018 - 10:51pm Coach Freeze

liked to conduct 'interviews' with escorts while on the road...many, many escorts

05/04/2018 - 7:43am MSU leadership to Nassar's victims

"...you F'd up, you trusted us"

05/01/2018 - 7:53am 162 regular season games

are too many

04/30/2018 - 11:01pm a couple friends/former teammates

have been dealing with early-onset of dementia due to concussions from football; i myself had at least 5 (concussion)...that i remember...er, ah, kinda remember

i suspect, as is the case w/other diseases and ailments, that heredity factors into suseptibility (of getting CTE, etc)...so i'm hoping for good genes in that regard

the average life expectancy for gladiators in ancient Rome was 27 years...rough sports do take a toll

04/30/2018 - 12:18pm great overview - thanks!

i like the roster depth and more importantly, the quality of the depth

04/25/2018 - 10:09pm always a good day when a murderer and/or rapist

is taken off the street (or planet) - even if its 40 years after the crimes

hope this helps the victims and their families find some peace

04/20/2018 - 5:29pm it'll be a mistake

if he goes through w/it (declares for the draft after the combine a/o hires an agent)

04/19/2018 - 7:52am I'm a big fan of Pop

as a person and a coach

truly sad situation for his family and friends

04/15/2018 - 10:34am as long as buckeyes are on the menu for dessert

the last weekend in November, sounds good to me

04/14/2018 - 5:24pm he's lactating for his new recruits

he always does in the spring

04/14/2018 - 5:21pm the MSU Board attempted to bring in someone

that could apply his/her political weight to help mitigate MSU's exposure, instead they just brought in someone w/immense weight that has made matters worse

Engler appears devoid of compassion and empathy - two concepts that should have been the foundation of MSU's "response" (to the victims) from the get-go

04/14/2018 - 5:10pm Engler just another larger tractor tire

thrown on the Sparty dumpster fire

04/14/2018 - 4:48pm WFC?

i don't

04/13/2018 - 2:45pm 10 in '18 (including a bowl win)

12 in '19 including a bowl win

04/12/2018 - 3:38pm Comcast,

like this news...sux

04/11/2018 - 3:28pm Whiskey and IA State

also cancelled their 'spring games' because of 'weather'

04/11/2018 - 12:25pm even though coach Harbaugh

didn't check with me, i'm still OK with it

04/10/2018 - 6:27pm yes apparently their glass house

has heavily tinted windows and nobody could see Nassar's systematic molestation

04/10/2018 - 6:23pm d-bag move by Ole Miss

...but expected for that d-bag course

02/28/2018 - 7:23pm logic and common-sense would dictate

the NCAA approves Patterson and these three players...but then again, logic and common-sense are not particular strenghts of the NCAA

02/15/2018 - 7:54am good hire -

good coach & recruiter (especially in some key states)

02/14/2018 - 9:18am though considerably less glamorous

the same thing happened to me on some much higher rocks near Venice Beach... since booze was also a factor, i still have scars from the jagged scrapes on my leg - and didn't get the photo either.

02/12/2018 - 1:10pm mind bottling

dude

02/11/2018 - 3:40pm though its likely been said/posted numerous times

Simpson and Matthews' ability to make/miss free-throws is going to be a key factor into 'how far' this team can go in the tourney

02/09/2018 - 4:28pm Rogue Wave

"Lake Michigan" - theme song material...even the UM band could do it justice w/a great drum intro

02/03/2018 - 9:51am tats and cash

will still fuel the flow of recruits to osu

02/02/2018 - 4:47pm truck = Mueller investigation

mop = nunes

01/30/2018 - 4:12pm last I heard Engler was hooked up

to a machine to keep him alive... a refrigerator

 

01/30/2018 - 1:11pm no way Dantonio

survives this... as for Izzo, he may survive, but he'll be wounded, which in turn will likely significantly alter his previously held retirement plans

01/27/2018 - 5:22pm MI AG names special independent prosecutor

which means its going to get uglier for many in leadership positions at MSU

01/27/2018 - 2:29pm karma police

are going to continue to come knockin in E. Lansing

01/27/2018 - 9:55am maybe this explains why Dantonio

always has a scowl on his face when he was on the sidelines and amongst his players

01/27/2018 - 9:53am NOT doing "the right thing" is the same as

doing the "wrong thing" in these situations (sexual assualt); and deflecting and rationalizing is just not going to cut it - and that goes for before, during and after (the act).

01/27/2018 - 9:46am "pride comes before the fall"

--- Mark Dantonio

...irony or poetic justice?

01/27/2018 - 9:41am disgraceful!

"NCAA president Mark Emmert was alerted to 37 reports of sexual assault at Michigan State in 2010"

Upton Sinclair — 'It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.'

01/26/2018 - 3:33pm yes, one way Dantonio

"dealt with" the situation, was he allegedly made the player 'go tell his mother what he did' ...as punishment

...musta been a starter

01/26/2018 - 3:31pm just talked to my sister

who lives in the E. Lansing area, she said from the people she's spoken to on this, she'd be surprised if Dantonio survives this ...kinda like a Baylor football re-run, w/the whole Nasser pedo-crimes adding to the scrutiny

01/26/2018 - 8:07am I'm still paying for repairs

from Harvey flooding (90% out of my own pocket)... flood policy and 'excess loss flood' policies only picked up about 10%

...so don't get me started on insurance companies and their heartless white collar criminal antics (SOP)

01/25/2018 - 9:10pm rarely is a good idea

to get back with an old girlfriend, for more than one night ...just sayin

01/25/2018 - 8:18am "she gone"

-- Hawk Harrelson 

01/22/2018 - 8:22am what?...does CMU

already have the starting QB position locked for next year?

01/21/2018 - 6:44pm depth and experience at the DB position

is always welcome - especially from a full year starter w/4.4 40 speed

01/16/2018 - 2:36pm "Can we all get along?"

-- Rodney King (1965-2012)

01/14/2018 - 11:29am I agree "any time",

this'll be my/our 15th visit...and if i had to pick a spot for a final demise, Hualalai or Wailea (Maui) would be it.
