It's damn near impossible to eliminate a team from this game, and it's not going to happen in 9 turns, even if all of the M users focused on OSU.

He's notable not because of the media, but because of the fans. There's a lot of people like me that watch the following golf every year:

1. All rounds of Masters

2. Final round of majors

3. Any round Tiger is playing.

06/14/2018 - 6:09pm I'm just happy they have…

I'm just happy they have enough soccer players that didn't get caught doping to field a team.

06/02/2018 - 4:01pm Yeah.....

At this point everyone is basically biding their time stalemated until the game is changed in some manner.

05/31/2018 - 12:17pm Wenger?!!!

Arsenal is my #1 and Real my #2, if Wenger goes there that would be insane!

05/23/2018 - 2:14pm He's very analytical

From what I read he'd be a solid hire.

05/22/2018 - 3:15pm Was wondering about that...

Unfortunately that means I need to rack up >400 karma to get muh 3 stars. Shitposting, here I come!

05/21/2018 - 3:35pm Degrees of freedom are important too tho....

If I'm trying to survive I'd rather have like 20 different terriorities to pick from than be trapped totally in Maine, for example. I think ideally we'd like OSU to focus on Maine while they get picked off in the Midwest, assuming the alliance works. Then we can concentrate our forces on their handful of remaining connected territories in the NE.

05/17/2018 - 4:44pm I wonder if they didn't want it

They'd be following a legend, inheriting a team not full of young talent, and they'd be outspent by MU, MC, Liv, and Chelsea. Plus who knows how much control they'd have in signings.

It seems like it's set up as a failure for a manager that'd be expected to win now and he'd be gone in 2 seasons tops.

05/17/2018 - 4:39pm I like Arteta

I was sad when he left for Man City but working under Pep was obviously a great thing for him, better than working under Wenger for those 2 years.

I viewed him as a future Arsenal manager. Ideally, you'd like him to get a season or two running a lesser club. But I said the same thing about Harbaugh back in 2007(?).

05/17/2018 - 4:37pm 3-4 years is a bit much

in soccer. I think they're going to solidify the backline and maybe pick up a solid midfielder and hope that, along with Auba and Laz, gets them close to the top 4. It might, but probably not.

I do hope they spend on some young talent with an eye on getting back to the top 4 for 2019-2020. Depending on who they sell, they should have enough money to spend on that.

05/17/2018 - 4:31pm Kroenke

I think this potential Arsenal hire fits the philosophy of the owner, in that he doesn't want to pump hundreds of millions of dollars into the team to sign the players a good manager knows he would need to compete in the EPL for that 2-3 year window that is the lifespan for most managers nowadays.

Kroenke wants a guy where Arsenal is the destination job, and where he's willing to take in some less costly players and develop that into a suitable squad, even if it means being paitent for several years. Similar to what Liverpool and Tottenham have done recently, although with differing budgets.

04/20/2018 - 12:27pm oh man, this is huge

I always thought there was a loose comparison between mid to late stage Wenger and Beilein. Both ran offenses that were incredibly easy on the eyes, both seemed to have defensive issues, and both competed without "money." By money I mean neither had bagmen or oil barons to help them get the elite players.

 

Beilein of course figured the defensive issues out and that's why while it's time for Arsene to do something else, John can stay as long as he wants.

02/20/2018 - 2:57pm So?

.

02/15/2018 - 12:26pm Fuck...

I hadn't seen the picture until just now and always thought it was McElwain in it. Like I was picturing him in swim trunks hugging it or something.

I guess now I don't get why it's always brought up now if it wasn't him. I mean I guess I get it. It's not making me laugh, but I get it.

01/21/2018 - 6:28pm Was looking for this....

They want someone to play safety that can man up on the slot in 3+ wr sets and not give up long bombs. That happened way too often late in the season.

09/10/2017 - 1:42pm hilarious

i should silently let people act like assholes. if not i'm a snowflake.

lpt: don't be stupid, don't be an asshole. definitely don't be both.

09/10/2017 - 11:11am amen....

when i go to a restaurant, i pay for the right to be rude the staff. if they can't handle it they should find another job.

09/10/2017 - 12:15am in this scenario.....

you're the dumbass for paying $100.

if you don't like it, stop paying.

you're fucking boo ain't gonna do shit.

09/10/2017 - 12:14am no, the problem is

most people think their opinions are worth more than the piece of toilet paper they're written on.

09/09/2017 - 11:59pm so stay fucking home next time....

you should realize this can happen. every team has at least one game like this every season. if you don't like that, don't buy the product.

don't boo, or don't come back. you'll only get pissed off again.

09/09/2017 - 11:53pm if you think shelling out $$$

entitles you to anything from a student-atlhete playing a game, you are wrong.

09/09/2017 - 11:48pm fans are shit

so everything is k.

k.

09/09/2017 - 11:47pm i can tell fans

to not act like assholes.

08/29/2017 - 12:42am i few like very few people in

i few like very few people in this thread watched a lions game last year. 4-12 at best with a mediocre qb.

08/24/2017 - 2:00pm flash sales....

looks like the last one was during the eclipse. not sure if it was 30% or 50%.

just got to search twitter for it now and then.

08/24/2017 - 1:49pm it's not that type....

they're not going to write game recaps, etc. at least they haven't with the tigers so far. it's more scouting and analysis and interview/in-depth type stories.

they might get some scoops but they won't hide them behind the paywall.

some of it is kinda mgoblog/fangraphs type, probably not as in-depth with that type analysis but they cover far more--all your teams and all your sports. i wouldn't recommend getting it just for michigan football, but for detroit teams and sports in general it's probably going to be far better than an espn type site. i think that's who they're trying to compete against, and they will provide far better content if the business model holds.

they'll have specials too, especially at the end of articles in new markets. i think i got a year for $20 i think.

08/22/2017 - 12:47pm (No subject)

08/12/2017 - 7:21pm If you can get a hotspot....

Go for the T-Mobile. They have the cheapest plan, don't have overage charges, and there's a ton of video that doesn't count against your data cap (netflix, youtube, etc.).

I think they use ATT towers when they can't use their own, so it might work for you. We don't have wired internet either but we do have an ATT tower next to our house and the T-Mobile works super fast.

07/12/2017 - 1:11pm he is now....

retired due to injury.

05/30/2017 - 11:16pm what's bad about his path?

by all accounts he's been fine since the divorce. i suspect this was an honest mistake rather than anything deeper to read into.

04/09/2017 - 7:42pm WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I wanted Sergio to win one so much. I hated how he was treated at the US Open when the crowd got on him with the waggles, and the dude has said a few harmless things that made him seem petty, but he's been a great guy and golfer overall.

He deserved this so much. It's a good day.

03/08/2017 - 9:06pm Klopp

I've always liked Klopp. Or at least since BVB made that run to the CL final. I also really liked Suarez' game until it became (even more) obvious what kind of person he is.

I'll probably end up rooting for anybody but ManU/ManCity/Chelsea to be honest when Wenger leaves. That basically means Spurs, Liverpool, Gunners and any LC type underdogs.

The downside to Liverpool is Henry owns the Red Sox and I hate the Red Sox!

03/08/2017 - 4:53pm Wenger..

I've been watching for 5 or so years, Wenger was the main reason I became an Arsenal fan. When he packs up I'm not sure if I'll gravitate to another team.

I can't bring myself to root for Cheslki or the ManCity oil, and I enjoy rooting against Mourinho. If the Spuds weren't the Gunners rival I would probably like them. There's not a hugely likeable team for me if Wenger leaves the EPL.

03/08/2017 - 4:45pm yep...

barring that miracle.

03/08/2017 - 1:18pm Kroenke....

He is the real problem. The Gunners, Avs, Rams owner is simply worried about cash flow and profit margin. Wenger did an amazing job of convincing Ozil and Alexis to join the club, but the competition has been making a signing like that pretty much every year. And so instead of putting Arsenal over the top, it's only papered over the previous talent loss.

Last 2 years have seen what, Cech, Zhaka, Lucas, Mustafi. Those guys are solid but no difference makers. If Arsenal are not going to compete financially with Chelski, Man City, and Man U, they you are correct, they  need to cash out on Sanchez and Ozil (and the cash will be huge) and go all-in with youth/depth acquisition and development.

01/10/2017 - 4:15pm you are correct,

30 is the class limit for enrolling come fall, for the reasons you state.

However, you can oversign by 3 in the B1G, so they could sign up to 33. But 3 would not be able to be on scholly for fall 2017.

06/15/2016 - 7:31pm This should be a lesson to everyone....

Never promise anything. It can only make you look bad when you don't/can't keep it.

04/27/2016 - 3:18pm Plus when people don't like

Plus when people don't like the conclusions they call it obvious or biased or a conspiracy.

04/27/2016 - 3:10pm Yep

And at any rate, if they found damage in, for example, 20 of 24 players, that's large enough to be significant even with the small sample.

02/12/2016 - 3:44pm Context...

http://www.mlive.com/wolverines/index.ssf/2016/02/caris_levert_minnesot…

 

Pretty clear from those cautionary quotes that Beilein was not saying he's ready for game action.

02/12/2016 - 3:17pm He was pretty clear today

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CbCgsxkWEAECrm5.jpg:large

02/12/2016 - 3:06pm So you think

Beilein should cut his scholly?

02/12/2016 - 3:02pm Injuries are not black and white

Maybe we can withhold judgement and respect Caris' privacy until both coach and player feel it's the proper time to say something detailed to the public.

02/12/2016 - 2:58pm Job?

You think he's getting paid?

02/01/2016 - 8:05pm Disagree

After the first tweet, the horse was out the barn. Shutting the door wasn't going to bring it back.

Even after the first tweet he wasn't straightforward. You could figure it out if you went through his timeline, but that's pretty much trolling in itself.

Expecting everyone else to read between the lines is childish.

02/01/2016 - 7:57pm Video seemed fine to me

I feel sorry for the dude that made it. There's no way any video was going to live up to what was inferred from his tweeting.

01/19/2016 - 12:03am True, but

Ian, Miggy, JD, Upton all hit RHP very well. Maybin actually has reverse splits, and Gose will see ABs anyway.

McCann hits RHP poor but Salty will see a good amount of ABs if that continues.

Nick and Iggy are the trouble areas against RHP for 2016, based on 2015.

12/14/2015 - 7:39pm Aguero

is really the one guy Arsenal would have a difficult time containing. He might be fit for the game too. As his health goes, so goes Man City.

 

Walcott being fit should really help, as I really like him and Giroud as a counter/outlet when they have be more defensive like they may have to be against Man City.

12/14/2015 - 7:34pm I chose Arsenal almost by process of elimination

EPL gets most TV coverage here in U.S. so that league was natural.

Man U - was too easy to pick at the time. Basically the Yankees. Never liked Rooney.

Man City - liked them somewhat at the start, but bought whatever they wanted with their oil $$$. Started out as a bit of an underdog, but the $$$ got too crazy. Still love Aguero tho.

Chelsea - boring football/Mourinho + oil $$$$ = easy to hate.

Liverpool - liked them at first too, they had just signed Suarez. But they were often compared to Ohio State in random "which team should you pick articles" and I never got behind them. I don't hate them tho.

Arsenal - Wenger is brilliant and different than just about any coach in sports. And I fell in love watching RVP single handedly keep them in the top 4 that one year before they sold him. They financed their own stadium 15 or so years ago, and this set them back financially just as the era of huge transfer monies set in. So they were an underdog for the title but still had a chance to do things, unlke the other 14-15 teams in the league who would have been too frustrating to get in to. Pleasing team to watch, even if it sometimes borders on soft. And an active online community on reddit that simply brought more info than others.

Also-it's easy to watch other teams as you get into it. For example, I think everyone in the EPL is rooting for Leicester City this year, except when they play my team and especially when they play Chelsea.
