My first

I'm with you....

My first thought was that the ESPN crew forgot to pack cameras 2-5 and the producer just said "fuck it, lets run this with one camera from a terrible angle and play it off like some fancy promo"

Not to split hairs but it’s actually "presumed innocent until proven guilty"

A conviction (or acquittal) means absolutely nothing about whether or not you actually committed a crime. Just ask OJ Simpson... or Ryan Braun

I was just about to make a post about this because I heard the same thing and it caught me off guard. 

FWIW here's a link to his rivals page. Not very informative.

I'm guessing nothing comes of it...

12/06/2013 - 12:49pm Isn't his dad

Isn't his dad the one that started the school where Canteen/Watson go basically to ensure that his son ended up at USC?

Moreover, didn't Sills commit to USC when he was like 13 or 14?

Seems like a weird offer.

12/05/2013 - 5:11pm Probably OT

Probably OT ... even in the offseason.

 

 

11/21/2013 - 10:46am As someone

As someone who worked as a prosecutor I think it’s critically important to point out that the idea of "innocent till proven guilty" is a total misnomer and not actually a thing in this country.

The real saying is "presumed innocent until proven guilty." I know it’s nuanced, but just because you're proven innocent does not mean you are actually innocent. Just look at OJ Simpson.

As such, please PRESUME he is innocent, but know that even if acquitted, he may be very very guilty.

Or maybe not...

11/19/2013 - 3:32pm How about the Jibreel Black

How about the Jibreel Black one handed sack in overtime?

I was at the game and it looked super awesome live...

10/23/2013 - 4:38pm Morris

Is that Shane Morris behind Mattison's right shoulder in the picture above -- the guy wearing khaki pants and a headset?

Perhaps this was the "injury" many alluded to when they said that we might try and get him a Medical Redshirt?

Or I'm dumb, and it's just not him and its some GA or team manager...

08/23/2013 - 4:05pm Wow

Less than 30 second after the announcement. Well done Ace.

 

 

07/30/2013 - 6:07pm Because Rodno

Because Rondo would have cost them way more than Knight.

Probably would have cost them Monroe.

 

07/18/2013 - 5:11pm Are you implying

Are you implying that the cost of litigation/settlement is going to exeed the cost Detroit residents would have paid in the long run?

If you are, you are wrong.

Sure it will cost an arm and a leg in the upcoming months/years, but it will eventually pay for itself tenfold.

Just ask United Airlines...

 

07/17/2013 - 4:44pm Keith Olberman

He always seemed like a total Blowhard to me...

I bet the show sucks for the following reasons:

1) He is a blowhard

2) ESPN has the PC Police on speedial limiting any actual discourse

3) ESPN isnt the only dog in the show anymore -- people don't have to watch shows like "The Sports Reporters" to get their sports fix if they don't want too...which few do...except old people

4) Its probably going to air in the coveted "right after the Midwest Poker Stars" slot which no one cares about. Honestly, if the progaming on ESPN is lame how many of us actually flip to ESPN2 hoping there's something better over than than whatever's airing on the mothership

5) No one gave a crap about his shows on MSNBC or the channel he tried to start after getting canned for being a blowhard that no one watched. Am I missing something, but what's different here except "sports"

 

06/20/2013 - 11:38am Did you hear

Did you hear the one about the guy who got shot and it blew off the whole left part of his face...?

You didn't?

Well, don't worry, he's ALL RIGHT...

/ZING!

05/22/2013 - 1:48pm 3 other All Americans, Not 2

Looks like there are 3 other Parade All Americans in the Big Ten

Peter Jok -- Iowa

Mark Loving -- Ohio

Luke Fischer -- Indiana

Not a huge deal, but maybe should be corrected...

01/15/2013 - 1:04pm I'd argue that posting

I'd argue that posting something like that without knowing all the facts is gross negligence...

12/09/2012 - 10:16pm News flash

Every team in the league lacks talent in certain areas. As you mentioned our O-line sucks and are safety play has been atrocious all season.

What you seem to ignore in all your responses is that Schwartz seems to condone the undisciplined play that has undone the lions countless times over the past few seasons. Either that or he's just in totally over his head -- which is possible after how he blew that challenge on Thanksgiving.

I understand how awful the lions were, and I appreciate their improvement, but to a certain extent it's merely a regression to the mean. As stafford got healthy and Megatron began to emerge as the best WR in the NFL they were bound to win at least 4-5 more games.

In my opinion you're giving him way to much credit. This team could/should be better.

12/09/2012 - 9:55pm So

So you're saying you'd like to keep Jimmy Jocksniffer for another season?

Outside of that your argument is "bears should have won more games 25 years ago, Culter and Marshall are unlikeable and our O-line blows"

Well, you're right, our offensive line does suck and Tice has struggled with the consistency of his plays, but wre still in the thick of the division and playoff chase.

In all honestly, you guys probably have more talent on your roster than we don, but Schwastz and co. Have done their best to crap all over it. That's why our games matter and yours don't.

Can you even remotely defend Schwartz's handling of the thanksgiving flag? The wide receiver diva situation? Suh's continued insistence to play dirty even when it hurts the team. The Harbaugh thing? The penalties? The arrests?

You and I both know the lions are better than their record. The blame for that falls on the head coach...

12/09/2012 - 9:35pm I'm a bears fan, so I'm

I'm a bears fan, so I'm rooting for the lions to to tonight, but that TD was absurd.

More importantly, how long can you guys really keep Jim Schwartz? The lions are by far the undisciplined team in the league and he seems totally clueless. Every team has its fair share of idiots an/or trouble makers but the lions seem full of them.

It started with the harbaugh thing, then Suh, then its just gotten progressively worse. There may be a fine line between "physical/bullies" and totally undisciplined cheap shot artists. Just look at the penalty they took after the TD tonight...or the challenge flag on thanksgiving.

I'm a bears fan, so I hope he stay 25 years, but if I'm a lions fan I want his head on a stake. He's taken a talented core and wasted 2/3 years with his only successful playoff run the year the bears fell apart through injury.

11/21/2012 - 12:54pm Its actually "presumed

Its actually "presumed innocent until guilty" -- there is a big difference between actually being innocent and being presumed innocent.

10/18/2012 - 3:55pm Am I Crazy...

I am I crazy, or was he never really interested in Michigan. I thought he was a sparty lock real early on, because that whole "UM Didnt know my name and called me Tom Gholston" thing has always seemed like a bunch of BS

It's not the size that counts...

It's how you use it!

06/20/2012 - 1:35pm Probably tomorrow night

In a trial of this magnitude closing arguments will likely take an entire day.

There will also be the reading of jury instructions which may well take 3-4 hours. I'd be we don't get a verdict till early/mid next week...

06/18/2012 - 12:06am A night

Hell spend the night in jail and he'll plead guilty to tomorrow morning for time considered served and a $200 fine...

06/05/2012 - 1:05pm As a prosecutor

As a prosecutor I can tell you that listing witnesses is far more about preserving your right to call them at trial than it is about your actual intent to call them...

That being said, I'd be stunned of they didn't call McQuery. The case is nearly impossible to prove wothout him.

06/02/2012 - 9:09am Anyone else planning to EE

I know I read somewhere that a couple kids are trying to EE. I know Shane can't, and I know it's usually a fluid situation (think DG), but does anyone have a working list?

...its the summer... and the weekend...and I'm bored

12/10/2011 - 12:32pm Either that

 

Brian doing his best Kork Coupons whining impression.

 

Either that or his "I'm gonaa eat the shit out of this pretzel all covered in mustard/cheese" face

I heard both her and Kork were originally going to come to UM, but we didn't have their majors...

I feel that Suh is still liked by a lot of the country

I'm not sure you're right about that one....

As someone who lives outside Detroit, I can tell you that's not how most people think of him. Whether deserved or not his continuous "rough" play on the field seems to have earned him a reputation as a cheap shot artist and a bully. I'm not trying to take away from his talent, because's he's a fantastic player, but his actions  speak way louder than his words.

Also, the argument that "he's just bigger and stronger than everyone else" is totally laughable. Sure, he's a monster, but its the NFL ... they all are. I'd like to see Schwartz get in his ear a bit more and start threatening to fine/suspend him for penalties that cost the lions dearly.

 

 

 

12/06/2011 - 5:05pm Do you read the New Yorker

Your use of the word "slappies" instantly jumped out at me, but I'm not sure if you're using it right...

 

The article points out that Gruden routinely is “criticized for overpraising players” publicly, but also points out that, in private settings, Gruden displays far less charity.Writes Kelefa Sanneh of Gruden: “He is forever judging players who don’t or can’t excel — ‘slapdicks,’ he calls them, or, more familiarly, ‘slappies.’ ...

"I have it on good authority that Braxton paid for his tatoo. Until I hear otherwise, he will be out starter!"

11/23/2011 - 2:44pm I'm sure

I'm sure Brian wouldn't mind if people dropped a couple extra coins into the "beveled guilty" donations plate ... you know, to helpo people clear their consciencesand restore the proper karma balance to the world.

At this point, I'd do anyhting for a win.

10/21/2011 - 9:04pm HB or FB?

Would heplay FB or RB?

I see as a slightly more touted Stephen Hopkins...

09/26/2011 - 4:16pm sounds to me

So if he can't even come to Columbus until the fall I doubt he'll be able to contribute that much without having practiced with the team or being in game shape...

09/03/2011 - 11:38am have you seen Oregon's?

P.S. Its kind of hard not to notice im bombing one over Brandon Harrison in the highlight package ...

08/29/2011 - 1:38pm porbably

probably thought they were getting the Gholston who was still juicing ...

08/29/2011 - 10:37am Misopogon

I had no idea that Misopogon meant "Beard-Hater." I guess i just always remembered when that some previous poster noted that Misopogon sounds like something a Jamaican person would say upon entering the shower and noticing their soap was missing ...

As such, I'd advocate for "Tuesday's Empty Soapbox" ... you know, because apparently one of your Jamaican roommates stole your soap
