So you're saying that because some heros don't publically project their ugly side that it's okay for Sanderson to tweet what he did? 

Why the need to delete a bunch of tweets? I supposed his homophobic tweets were okay because he's a "Christian" and, well, we Christians know gays are abhorent and are all going to burn in hell. Give me a break.

And how do you defend his tweeting pics of Serena Williams and captioning "disgusting..."? 

01/23/2018 - 1:46pm I'm of the opinion that this

I'm of the opinion that this was never a real offer. Vrabel doesn't have much coaching experience himself and he would hire an OC without any play calling experience? I think he did it to give exposure to OSU. Urban can now say he has a young OC that is coveted by the NFL.

I also think he's offering Warriner partly due to the fact that he is someone who could sure up the weakest link on our team.

I'm always reticent to proffer my sympathies in situations like this because anything I say winds up sounding so platitudinous, but your story welled up a lot of emotion in me this morning and I felt compelled to reply.

I, too, have young children and the thought of them losing their mother is frightening. I shudder at that thought and can't imagine what you're going through. I just know that you will raise two great Wolverines and their mother will RIP seeing that come to fruition.

May you find peace in these troubling times.

You would've been correct if that was the only thing you said. You also pointed out that Meyer processed 2 guys much earlier in the process and contrasted it to the Swenson timing. Why even go there?

01/21/2017 - 11:19am Don't be so obtuse. You knew

Don't be so obtuse. You knew I was referencing the 2013 class where Jacobs was given the boot right before signing day to make room for Clark. This was right before signing day so I don't know why you would reference Swenson to make your point.

You just couldn't help yourself and made a dig at Harbaugh. When a new coach comes in and asks you to camp and you refuse, I would assume a subsequent lack of communication from the coaching staff would be enough. Swenson "knew" well before mid-January that he wasn't going to be a part of that class. He was just extremely immature about it and ignored it; hoping it wouldn't be true.

08/27/2016 - 4:46pm Why would Urban go to Notre

Why would Urban go to Notre Dame where he'd face some recruiting hurdles? Notre Dame definitely has stricter academic requirements than Michigan or OSU for football players.

While Urban is a great coach, he's built his record with teams that had equal or greater talent than the opposition. That certainly speaks to his recruiting acumen but I don't think he could overcome the inherent recruiting disadvantages at ND

08/22/2016 - 12:25pm I admit I'm not giving enough

I admit I'm not giving enough deference to Lewis' accomplishments but I think Bolt's resume is easily more impressive given the manner he dominates. He doesn't even lose outside of the Olympics. 

You do fail to mention that Lewis won one of his golds because of Ben Johnson's dq. Also, that Lewis himself failed 3 drug tests leading up to those Olympics. Lewis openly lamented the use of PEDs ruining the sport. Perhaps he was well-versed in their use.

08/22/2016 - 12:11pm I still think the flly is the

I still think the flly is the most similar stroke to freestyle but we're not going to change each other's opinion.

Phelp's specialty is butterfly. Anyone that is great at fly will probably be at least good at freestyle. I agree that the fly is the most difficult stroke and not everyone can master it.

Why do you consider me pro-Bolt? Because I provide counterarguments to the pro-Phelps guys? I appreciate both guys for different reasons. Bolt is so dominant. Has he ever lost? He's also very cocky in a manner that is likable and not off-putting. People question why he doesn't participate in more events and I think the simple answer is there's no money in it. I don't think there would be any ROI if he tried to win long jump.

I also respect the hell out of Phelps' accomplishments. I won't see them rivaled in my lifetime and he's truly a special athlete. The sheer amount of will, determination, discipline, and athletic prowess he possesses is truly unique. He's a generational talent like Spitz was before him. Just like Owens was before Bolt.

One final point to consider for those that use medal count as a reason for Phelp's superiority: The list of Olympians with the most medals is littered with swimmers and gymnasts. Don't you think that weakens the argument?

08/22/2016 - 10:00am Did you consider the context

Did you consider the context of the post to which I replied? I even stated it would be ridiculous for him to compete in other events. Pro Phelps guys always seem to point out the fact that Bolt doesn't do any events outside of his 3. I don't think these guys realize that the mechanics of butterfly and freestyle are very similar. Phelps isn't swimming the wide breadth of disciplines as they seem to imply. 

 

08/22/2016 - 9:44am First of all, I'm not your

First of all, I'm not your son and I didn't "site" anything. Given your attitude, I would think using your middle finger would be a natural reaction and typing "c" would be easier than "s".

Second, when did I claim "Phelp is tainted?" I replied to a poster mentioning the 8 Golds in Beijing. That's a feat that I don't see being surpassed. I was pointing out that Phelps had a lot of help in that accomplishment because he was on the best relay teams.

And LOL at your citing golds for Lewis and Johnson in non-sprinting events. Bolt is a sprinter though I have no doubt he woud be one of the best in the 400m.

It's too bad you don't appreciate Bolt's accomplishments because he's not trying to be Jim Thorpe or Jesse Owens. What's wrong with just sprinting and being the best at it, ever? The fact you put Carl Lewis in the same conversation with him is laughable.

08/21/2016 - 11:07pm Phelps got to 8 golds because

Phelps got to 8 golds because the US has the strongest swim team in the world and therefore have most of the strongest relay teams. No way you're winning all those relay golds without help. 

I give him a lot of credit for being strong enough in breast and back to dominate IMs but I'd hardly call that pushing "himself to compete in strokes he wasn't the best at." Again, he's not competing in backstroke or breaststroke. It would be ridiculous and foolhardy for him to try.

You're being so obtuse by pointing out multiple runners have won the 100 and 200 in the same Olypmics. While that may be true, no one has ever accomplished that in 2, let alone 3 Olympics. You also neglect to acknowledge that swimmers' careers are longer than sprinters'.

While Phelp's accomplishments are unmatched, you can also wonder what might have been if swimming were more lucrative in Mark Spitz's day. It's not unreasonable to surmize he couldn've had over 20 gold medals.

08/21/2016 - 10:06pm Bolt doesn't run hurdles

Bolt doesn't run hurdles because he'd probably do as well as phelps would do if he competed in backstroke or breaststroke .

MSU is mostly a regional brand. They need Nike more than Nike needs them. No way they get that kind of bump. 

How much leverage do you think OSU has with Nike? Do you think OSU would take the money if UA or Adidas offered a pile of cash? Make no mistake, as well as you're recruiting, it will take a hit if you switch away from Nike. Do you really think you'll move away from Nike if they don't offer a comparable deal to ours? I don't

Hold up. You're going to bury your head in the sand and claim that it's believable the Bears had their whole staff filled but one and waited until the day after NSD to announce the RB coach hire?

On the other hand, you'll just accept Weber's assertion that he thought/was told he'd be the only RB recruited. This, after they went hard for Weber's good friend John Kelly and offered several other guys we know of. JH is a smart, direct man. I find it inconceivable he'd risk a hole in the recruiting class on the whims of a teenager. And, unlike Urban, I don't think he'd deliberately deceive Weber.

Another big difference is that Edwards came with 4 years of eligibility as opposed to 1 for Lyons. Plus, Lyons has shown himself to be a good, not great player and Edwards was one of the highest-rated recruits at the time
