Hard pass.

Mike Trout. Multiple MVP awards and one postseason hit.

04/08/2018 - 4:11pm I have a friend who was a

I have a friend who was a walk-on during spring camp last year. I asked him who I would be surprised about positive and negative. He said Speight and Nordin we're complete entitled douchebags. He said Bush was special and Khalid Hill was lazy as long as he could be but hilarious and ridiculously gifted.

04/08/2018 - 4:03pm I'm sure Ace will be happy to

I'm sure Ace will be happy to use this as an opportunity to congratulate PSU on their NIT championship.

09/22/2017 - 6:07pm Did anyone else watch

Did anyone else watch Horton-Tucker's film and swear they saw him travel at least a half dozen times? That cradle he has as he's approaching the rim is a consistent move for him and certainly looks like he's taking a whole lot of steps each time. Someone's going to whistle that eventually, right?

08/17/2017 - 7:44am Is there room to sweep Canada

Is there room to sweep Canada and take both him and Brazdeikis?

Also, I'm following the "don't watch his highlights because this isn't happening" rule while hoping to be gleefully surprised.

08/13/2017 - 9:42pm The Michigan way seems more

The Michigan way seems more like naming buildings than building statues, but much of that comes from former employees. I wonder if there will ever be permanent statues for former players. I would love to see a Woodson statue of "The Catch".

08/13/2017 - 3:17pm After all this ridiculous

After all this ridiculous talk, now he's HURT! Lol. It's not a serious injury so I don't feel bad about laughing, but I'm glad the SEC prepared him to be underachieving damaged goods.

06/24/2017 - 2:48pm He's a bit off in one way.

He's a bit off in one way. Over the past 30 years only 10 teams have won a championship, and only 3 (Lakers, Bulls, Spurs) have won more than Detroit.
However, this current team is bad. They have two max level commitments on guys who don't play at Max level. Furthermore, there is talk KCP will be payed at Max or near max (give me a break, he's a chucker). So no cap space and just the right level of mediocrity to never get the top level talent in the draft. No marketable pieces for trade and no one to develop. Add no cap space and the future looks dim. Then again, it's soon to be , for all purposes, an 8 team league so 22 fanbases have little to look forward to.

12/14/2016 - 6:44am For most cancers the survival

For most cancers the survival rate is exponentially higher if detected early. Breast cancer in particular, if detected at stage 2 or earlier, has a 90-some % survival rate. But if not detected until stage 4 it is under 30%. As much as the NFL is trying to benefit from image with this, Crucial Catch money is directly tied to making screenings more accessible, particularly in communities where people are less likely to have insurance. Through ACS and partnerships with medical systems in these communities, many women have had their first ever mammogram.
While I'm not on the "let's bash breast cancer awareness initiatives" bandwagon that many ignorant people have hopped on, I'm all for anything that expands this to other forms of cancer that are commonly ignored. Colorectal cancer is the one ACS is currently making a big push on. Screening rates are lower than 30%.

12/13/2016 - 9:22pm To be clear, the NFL

To be clear, the NFL partnership is NOT with Komen, rather with the American Cancer Society - a completely separate nonprofit that has always been an advocate for all screenings and funds more research grants than anyone outside the US government. I've lost family members to multiple forms of cancer and am among numerous cancer survivors in our family. ACS has been extremely helpful in providing education for what we have faced. I've had an association with them for two years now.

11/16/2016 - 3:28pm Look at what the Cubs did via

Look at what the Cubs did via the draft and trades from 2011-2014. After they established that as a foundation, they opened the checkbook again no and have at least one ring with plenty of reason to feel good about the next 5 years at least.

10/29/2016 - 8:32am I don't want to be a douche,

I don't want to be a douche, but has the staff told this kid to look around at all? Samuels and Dillon in the class and pushing hard for guys like Harris...I think Taylor still considers himself a RB. If he can't get snaps or do anything with them in a HS game, he's unlikely to beat out the other guys being recruited at UM.

10/12/2016 - 8:07am Pay off all debt, buy a new

Pay off all debt, buy a new car (modest, under $35k), travel more but generally maintain similar standard of living and use the interest to supplement my current income.

09/09/2016 - 9:14am I thought he recently

I thought he recently referred to OSU as "that other school" when talking about his former teammate's decommit. Now they're HIS Crystal Ball leader?

08/06/2016 - 10:35pm I don't like to think about

I don't like to think about it for a number of reasons, but wonder what would have been different if RR had landed Pryor for his spread.

There are a few neighborhoods in Saginaw you want to avoid, especially after midnight, but most of Saginaw is fine.

Zero chance with Brian Bowen?

07/07/2016 - 11:01pm I watched the video of all

I watched the video of all his field goals. The extreme majority were at the rim.
He didn't strictly play junk minutes. If you watch he was matched up against starters on several occasions. He actually scored in double figures a dozen times.
Massive at 7'3".
I like it!

07/04/2016 - 12:04pm Beyond the obvious reasons of

Beyond the obvious reasons of it being a pipe dream (top free agents don't feel any draw to Auburn Hills, not enough cap space), don't forget he HATES Reggie Jackson.

Wonder where Westbrook will end up next year. Replace Tony Parker?

Smiling, tearing up a little. HAIL YES!

05/05/2016 - 7:34pm PSU should have had the death

PSU should have had the death sentence for this. Now the ship has sailed and the program will no longer face any ramifications, but Sandusky's victims will likely never recover.

An an adult, Grown Ups 2. The first one wasn't great, but my wife and I gave the 2nd one a chance and I wanted to leave multiple times but I'm so cheap that I stayed for the free refills.

04/19/2016 - 9:05am NFL players are far better

NFL players are far better than college players. This game would be laughable, and that's no disrespect to the current team.

04/18/2016 - 1:52pm Doesn't Shawn Kemp have 143

Doesn't Shawn Kemp have 143 sons? One of them MUST be worth signing!

04/18/2016 - 1:51pm When I graduated from HS I

When I graduated from HS I was 6'3.5" and lucky to hit 150 lbs. on the scale. I drank protien shakes withy every meal and ate 5-6 large meals each day. Worked out but couldn't build any muscle in my upper body - lower body developed fairly well.

I didn't break 165 for good until I hit 27 years old. Now I'm 40 and 210 lbs.

Just had a crazy metabolism for a long time.

03/31/2016 - 10:58pm The spring game could give us

The spring game could give us a call of "Peters looking off Bush to once again target a Tight End and sure enough Butt hauls it in."

03/30/2016 - 10:43am Right, even without Poole,

Right, even without Poole, the situation is still better than no Spike and some Dakich. Simpson is a much better option and, even if there are injuries, you would have to think Watson is a better option than Dakich.

03/05/2016 - 4:43pm it wasn't that long ago, it

it wasn't that long ago, it seems, that Miami (YTM) belonged on that list. Oh, how they have fallen. Also amazing that Oregon doesn't recruit better given their resources, record on the field, and placement on this list. Hoke to the rescue.

02/22/2016 - 11:05am I think there was probably an

I think there was probably an assumption based on previous classes that if Irvin and or/Walton would have continued to progres, one or both could have gone early. Even Dawkins hype had some thinking about his potential. Those most frustrating thing about this team is how good they could be if everyone had taken steps forward. Seems like only MAAR and Donnal have improved while everyone else has either been stagnant or regressing. It's as if Hoke was guest coaching 2/3 of the team.
Obviously everyone is frustrated that our seniors don't play, considering one is a gritty and efficient leader and the other was a preseason All-American.

02/19/2016 - 1:09pm Didn't an ND commit die a few

Didn't an ND commit die a few years back during a "normal" spring break? Probably better for these student athletes to have a structured tropical spring break than to drink cheap liquor out or a syphilis-covered Bong for a week, right?

Dude on feed just said 10 more minutes. Won't know anything until after 9:30

01/28/2016 - 9:00am A family member of mine who

A family member of mine who has known Brian for years said they talked months ago and Brian was basically off the team then. 3 Strikes. Missed a practiced, missed some classes, and smoked some weed. I've been wondering for a long time when this would become official. This was what Brian actually told her. Guess the delay was maybe his chance to get out of the doghouse but apparently he didn't.

06/25/2015 - 8:44am 13 years ago my wife and I

13 years ago my wife and I honeymooned at The Homestead in Glen Arbor. Beautiful setting, very relaxing, and great all inclusive packages.

04/13/2015 - 10:40am Considering there is still

Considering there is still another 140+ days before they take on Utah, I don't expect greatness right now. All I expect is work and growth. These coaches are the exact people needed to get it there.

04/12/2015 - 8:40am Which other B1G schools have

Which other B1G schools have them? OP said 6 in the conference after saying 5 on our schedule, but 2 of those 5 are nonconfidence opponents.

09/17/2014 - 1:55pm Delaney will have added Texas

Delaney will have added Texas to the conference by then, making this a conference game, right?

09/10/2014 - 7:45pm So it's Washington in 20-21,

So it's Washington in 20-21, UCLA in 22-23, and Oklahoma in 25-26. When would this be and what's going on in 24? I mean, the OP said some time in the 20's. Overlapping any of these or after?

09/05/2014 - 8:35pm It really didn't matter what

It really didn't matter what your post said, I was planning to +1 on title alone.

09/02/2014 - 8:07pm That's not as bad of a logjam

That's not as bad of a logjam as it looks on the surface. A number of those players played two or three positions. There's only 13 players there and only 3 position players coming in, one of which is a C and that's not listed on the above chart. You're really keeping that same mix and adding one OF and one MI. This hurts a guy like Gutierrez or White, maybe Romano or Lamb. Otherwise stable.

08/26/2014 - 1:21pm The left tackle is a

The left tackle is a three-year starter, but no one else other than their #2 LG (who is behind a true freshman) has ever started more than one game. Is that actually a line with less experiences than ours? Insane.

08/26/2014 - 10:32am Great kid and great attitude.

Great kid and great attitude. I hope his recovery goes well and he's able to make the type of progress he's looking for.

08/20/2014 - 5:21pm I really appreciate this

I really appreciate this write up, but further evidence of taking some of it with a grain of salt....Kyle says that Doyle played the majority of the game after subbing in early, but the box score claims Donnal played 19 and Doyle 18. He also says Spike didn't play much, but he also played 19. As a fan, there's what we see and then there's what the box score tells us. It's possible that Spike and Donnal were out there half the time indeed and just weren't spectacular.
Personally I kind of hope none of them get a redshirt, except maybe Hatch. With as far as he has come, I don't want to rule out the chance of him contributing and having every opportunity to do that. It would just be too awesome. Otherwise, the roster turns over so frequently that I think every chance to get guys game experience in case other guys blow up and leave early is good. You just won't see too many 5th year seniors in hoops anymore. For a team as young as they are, and will continue to be, experience is huge.

08/17/2014 - 11:05pm I really can't wait to

I really can't wait to actually see them play. The stat sheet only tells part of the story. Like Doyle, for example. Extremely efficient offensively, but no rebounds for the biggest guy on the team? You can read into that but without seeing the actual gameplay it's impossible to know if that's a legitimate concern or not.

08/12/2014 - 3:09pm Glad he wasn't with D Walton.

Glad he wasn't with D Walton. Didn't they go to high school together?

08/07/2014 - 9:44pm The midrange jumper would be

The midrange jumper would be good, but he won't need to develop to the three point line with the other talent likely to join him in the class of 16. Save the time you would spend on outside shooting and lift weights and eat egg whites, by the dozen.
If he can be J-Mo plus three inches and shot blocking that will be more than enough. Offensively he just needs to pick and roll and hit the free throw line jumper.

08/06/2014 - 10:30pm And both chose UM over offers

And both chose UM over offers from both MSU and OSU. Please, though, give us an early signing period. I can't hold my breath until Feb. or have every last one of them enroll early.
