s&p stats are all opponent adjusted 

10/19/2018 - 8:15am Weird how OSU fans said the… Weird how OSU fans said the exact same thing about Smith's incident in Florida after his felony arrest.
10/19/2018 - 7:59am What? 

 

"If there was…

What? 

 

"If there was actually a push to have LTT back we have a big problem."

 

Has been met with multiple people defending him having sex with someone who was incapacitated while filming. It's been met with multiple people saying they would have been ok with him coming back to the team. Hell, they're even saying "well if harbaugh had gone through proper channels" it would have been ok. That's exactly the defense OSU fans did with AA. We should be better than that.

What LTT did disqualified him from being at UM. Harbaugh should not have been pushing to get him back, as alleged in this interview.

10/19/2018 - 12:17am Covering up sexual assault… Covering up sexual assault that was videotaped isn’t so different from covering up spousal abuse how again? LTTs victim said that she didn’t remember large parts of the night and big chunks of the sexual encounter and LTT managed to take two videos of the event without her knowledge. Maybe you think that’s really not that bad, but decent people realize that it is. Be a decent person.
10/19/2018 - 12:05am As in the first sentence?… As in the first sentence? Lol ok.
10/19/2018 - 12:04am I’m not making that… I’m not making that comparison. If we had kept LTT on, it would have been institutional coverup. Ffs read.
10/18/2018 - 11:46pm You can try to say that it… You can try to say that it wouldn’t be as bad if LTT had stayed, I dont really care. The point is that it still would have been wildly inappropriate. Given that multiple people here are defending what he did, it’s fair to question that their real objections to Izzo and Meyer keeping on people like Walton and Smith is entirely based on tribalism.
10/18/2018 - 11:32pm Interesting, I’m the troll… Interesting, I’m the troll somehow for saying LTT shouldn’t be on the team, but making up stupid lies isn’t trolling. Lol.
10/18/2018 - 11:19pm I did. I did.
10/18/2018 - 11:13pm Say what? I have a problem…

Say what? I have a problem if Harbaugh really lobbied to get LTT back on the team. I’ve done nothing but say that. Allowing someone to come back on the team after they videotaped themselves having sex with an incapacitated person is not appeopriate.

10/18/2018 - 11:11pm The fact that you’d be ok… The fact that you’d be ok with a player coming back to the team after having sex with someone incapacitated while videotaping it shows you have some major issues.
10/18/2018 - 11:08pm Allowing him to continue to…

Allowing him to continue to represent Michigan would have made us no better than Meyer. I don’t care if LTT is doing good things these days, anyone arguing that he should have remained on the team is completely wrong. Set the expectation, remember when we all cheered that? Now when a player has sex with someone too drunk to know that they are being videotaped, suddenly that expectation gets dropped. Be better.

 

And yes ffs there’s a big difference between grabbing someone and what LTT did ffs. Wouldn’t have had any problem if Perry was gone as well. There’s no gray area for LTT, he had to go.

10/18/2018 - 10:57pm See I’m not sure if you just… See I’m not sure if you just missed the first sentence or if you’re being sarcastic. Poe’s law is hard soemtimes.
10/18/2018 - 10:56pm Lol wait a god damn minute,… Lol wait a god damn minute, this is insane. This guy faced no jail time, he just couldn’t play Michigan football. He still went on to play more college football. He didn’t face terrible consequences. Furthermore, is it really that hard to not screw women who are so drunk that they don’t notice you filming them? God help you if it’s that hard for you.
10/18/2018 - 10:47pm I have no issue with LTT. I… I have no issue with LTT. I just have a problem if Harbaugh really did fight to keep him on the team, precisely because I don’t think that price would have been high enough.
10/18/2018 - 10:46pm I know the result. I have a… I know the result. I have a problem with Harbaugh IF HE TRIED TO GET LTT BACK ON THE TEAM, which is what op claimed happened.
10/18/2018 - 10:44pm Because they did very… Because they did very different things. The legal mechanism they used was the same.
10/18/2018 - 10:37pm How is it so different?… How is it so different? Letting LTT back on the team after he admitted to taping himself having sex without their consent would have been so different than keep Zach Smith how again? You may be ok with that behavior, but thankfully the university isn’t.
10/18/2018 - 10:35pm He admitted to taking video…

He admitted to taking video of himself having sex with another person without their consent because the girl was too drunk to know. That is the something stupid you’re trying to gloss over. Be better than the OSU/MSU people ffs

10/18/2018 - 10:25pm Your understanding is wrong… Your understanding is wrong. He pleaded guilty the same way Perry did.
10/18/2018 - 10:18pm If there was actually a push…

If there was actually a push to have LTT back we have a big problem. There’s no room at Michigan for someone who records themselves having sex without the other persons knowledge. There’s no room for you either if you think that’s ok.

Edit: bet the downvoters thought urban was a real pos too. Pathetic. LTT is welcome to do the best he can after what he did, it there should have been no discussion of him coming back to the team.

Remember #settheexpectation? Good to know the board didn’t really believe that.

09/30/2018 - 3:24pm 55% against the spread this…

55% against the spread this year. Consistent >50% every year. It's valuable. It's better than random internet posters feelings.

09/30/2018 - 3:22pm S&P uses success rate, not…

S&P uses success rate, not YPP. Success rate is defined as 50% of yards on 1st down. 70% on 2nd. 100% on third. YPP is highly correlated with that obviously, but it's more accurate because a Ben Mason FB 1 yard touchdown run is more valuable than a 3 yard run on 1st and 10 from your own 25.

I’d put my two cents on PSU. The vocal minority that defends Paterno are the worst.

Anyone know how much money this kind of contract gets for a player?

05/15/2018 - 7:46am You don't lose legs due to

You don't lose legs due to nerve damage. That would cause pain and make it difficult for him to use the leg properly. You lose legs because of vascular injuries, which are incredibly common in knee dislocations (up to 40%). 

04/04/2018 - 3:33pm My understanding is that

My understanding is that there actually is a technique that DOs consider "legitimate medical treatment" called coccyx manipulation that Nassar claimed he was doing. MSU's error wasn't in understanding if this treatment was proper treatment or not, it was basically everything else involved in the case. If the doctors were asked if coccyx manipulation is a real treatment, and they said yes, they are on fairly solid ground. If they were asked about everything else, notsomuch.

04/04/2018 - 2:02pm There’s zero peer reviewed

There’s zero peer reviewed scientific data for a lot of treatment. There’s even significant evidence a lot of treatments cause harm. The question is if those treatments are part of some scope of practice, and I believe that they are because DOs are weird.

I suggest you learn what the words literal and equating mean before proceeding further.

02/03/2018 - 1:00pm The freep doesn't actually

The freep doesn't actually equate the two whatsoever. I suggest people actually read the article before getting their pitchforks. The freep, like Brian earlier this week, is attacking the large amount of institutional secrecy in both university systems. OP is massively out of line.

09/07/2017 - 9:37am Remember when Kelly played

Remember when Kelly played Crist with an obvious concussion in 2010? Crist had vision loss, memory loss and cognitive function loss, but never actually went through a concussion protocol (per Kelly the next week).

12/14/2016 - 9:58pm IIRC Michigan law requires UM

IIRC Michigan law requires UM to take more classes from CC. I took a summer course at schoolcraft while I was an undergrad at UM to take advantage of that. Might be wrong though, this was a decade plus ago.

Snape would be a tremendous hire, even if he is a Newcastle fan. Great guy and a great coach.

I was a fan of the Daley hire (not Burns getting fired), but I can't see how you can justify him staying considering his results.

Won't you think how hard it is for coaches making millions of dollars worrying if a 17 year old will change his mind?

10/05/2016 - 11:58pm No, schools do not have to

No, schools do not have to give a scholarship. Schools can take it away for any non athletic reasons, like 'violation of team rules'. Funnily enough, some players who didn't meet expecations at Bama and Clemson suddenly got booted for that.

09/27/2016 - 3:16pm Not to take anything away

Not to take anything away from your work, but I've really enjoyed rtsportsupload's channel. It seems to be an automatically generated play by play of the game with only game action. The cool bit is that it's up the night of games. After missing the entire football Saturday because of work it was a lifesaver. Watched the MSU-Wisc, UM-PSU, and Standford-UCLA games in ~an hour.

09/22/2016 - 8:56am I played for Snape. He's a

I played for Snape. He's a great guy and a great coach, especially for the offensive minded players. Didn't realize he was having so much success at Butler. Bringing him home isn't quite the right word, because he's an Oakland alum, but bringing him back sounds great to me.

Love Burns too, but I can't imagine just jumping back in to coaching after so many years gone.

08/09/2016 - 10:41pm It'd be most helpful to host

It'd be most helpful to host the games in cities that didn't have to completely upgrade or add new infrastructure. The international competitions that lost a lot of money and left many abandoned buildings were held in cities or countries that simply weren't ready for what a modern major international competition demands. I'm thinking Athens, South Africa, UAE, Brazil (WC), Brazil (Olympics), and so on.

More established cities and countries have had far less problems hosting these events.

08/04/2016 - 3:30pm WAR actually does measure

WAR actually does measure versatility. Your worth increases the more you can play harder to replace positions. Furthermore, Romine is a shortstop. Every shortstop in the league can play every other infield position. I'd be shocked if the vast majority of them can't play CF at Romine's defensive level, which has actually been shitty (UZR -23 runs (-2.3 WAR) per 150 games). It's not some special attribute that only he possesses, we just use him in a different way.

08/04/2016 - 11:14am Who is being super critical

Who is being super critical of Romine? This article is praising him for finally getting his season numbers above the replacement level. It's not impressive.

08/04/2016 - 11:03am I hate these kinds of

I hate these kinds of articles. No, the guy who is worth 0.1 WAR is not an unsung hero. He's just a generic dude on the team. Are we going to talk about the unsung hero Anthony Gose (0.2 WAR) or unsung hero Kyle Ryan (0.3 WAR)? 

It's the ZOMG DONG KELLY all over again, and it's pure BS.

07/02/2016 - 9:39am I don't think this is going

I don't think this is going to be a problem. They're doing a very good job of limiting his innings already. 

If it does hit his limit though, you have to shut him down.  You have him under team control for the next five years, and should not risk him getting a major injury that ruins his career.

Missed an obvious one:

End the red card plus pk for non intentional last man fouls. The punishment is too severe

04/22/2016 - 3:04pm MLS has been a massive boon

MLS has been a massive boon for the youth development process that Pulisic took part of. The USMNT falling a bit is due to a lot of key players getting older and not good enough to play in high european leagues, not because you suddenly get worse playing in the MLS. 

Pulisic also already got 7 appearances under his belt for a champions league squad at 17 years old in one of the best leagues of the world. I don't think you have to worry about him going to MLS anytime soon.
