06/10/2017 - 1:35pm My understanding is

That Dartmouth, and to some extent Brown, are effectively liberal arts schools, not research institutions, which is effectively why they fare so poorly on these rankings. Same reason Amherst and Williams don't show up at all either

01/13/2017 - 1:16am I think

Everyone would agree with you, that if it were a choice between someone like this and an Isaiah Wilson instant-starter type, you opt for the latter. However, we have 32 spots and 27 guys so far, and no proof anyone will be a guaranteed starter in 2018; under those circumstances, I don't see how you don't at least look at a guy like this, assuming he's not getting run off for medical or attitude reasons.

01/06/2017 - 12:55pm He's also doing his half of

Run The Jewels.

01/01/2017 - 1:23pm Not an expert by any means

But I would say it depends who dumped whom. If you dumped her, of course she's gonna want to go out and have a good time, and maybe make you jealous. If she dumped you, it feels a bit heartless to dump you and tell you about any later exploits, but maybe she's testing you somehow. If that's the case, that doesn't seem like great behavior either, and might be a red flag. If she dumped you, lay low with her for a while, and go out and do stuff you enjoy, with people who care about you. Don't try and force a reconciliation, because that borders on begging, which is always unattractive.

At any rate, I'd strongly disagree with the below people about not showing any emotion at all. By all means keep the heavier stuff within your inner circle, and don't post on social media about it, and definitely don't confront her with the heavier stuff. But once you feel ready and can have a reasonable discussion, approach her and be honest, and most importantly LISTEN. Men often complain that women want us to be mind readers, but in my experience women have the same complaint about men, so ask the questions you want answered.

10/31/2016 - 12:43pm Was Just

Going to post about this. Frankly, I'm more interested in whether there are any pieces we can pick up. Looks like Jalen Hurd wants to become a TE. Come on down?

09/18/2016 - 10:51am I wouldn't say eight or lower, necessarily

But around seven feels reasonable. Obviously teams like Clemson haven't looked any better, but Stanford has, and so, arguably, has Houston.

09/18/2016 - 10:45am Agreed

Not a ton of better teams, but I'd put us at 7.

08/25/2016 - 5:02pm At this point

I'd just take advancing. No asterisk beside "UCL quarter-finalist".

08/25/2016 - 4:59pm Yeah

Spurs have a very good chance to advance out of that group, which would be huge.

08/23/2016 - 11:20am I actually

Had no idea this guy was committed. Just goes to show you it's not worth getting too excited about recruits this far out.

08/15/2016 - 4:42pm I feel like this is a

pretty good spot for us. Gets us good hype, but not hype that we can only fail to live up to.

08/14/2016 - 3:26pm Well

I can't speak for every thread you take issue with, but I'm personally getting tired of the threads where people circlejerk and get actually offended when someone predicts us to go 10-2 (probably a reasonable enough projection).  It seems to me we have talent and questions this year, but I think 2017 sets up to have more questions than talent, so I'm wondering if this is our best shot to win it all for a while.

08/12/2016 - 1:12pm I think

One could argue it either way. People forget that end product Jake Rudock was not early season Jake Rudock. End Jake Rudock wins that Utah game, and we were one fuckup away from winning against MSU. That's an 11 win team, and the non-con games aren't as tough to stabrt, with QBs with more experience in the system. However, MSU and OSU are always tough games, and we play Iowa. Those to me are the turning points of the season. That being said, we're at least competing for the B1G title.

07/07/2016 - 3:30pm I saw that

a lot of SEC teams do have most of their dates open, but is that for conference scheduling purposes? IE do SEC conference schedules come out really late for some reason?

07/06/2016 - 11:33am Do we know exactly what time

he's announcing? For F5 purposes.

06/04/2016 - 7:53pm Oh, Peru ain't good

but Haiti has to be worse. Right?

06/04/2016 - 7:49pm I

have some money riding on Peru Haiti, so Peru better come through!

05/05/2016 - 1:17pm Also

Very true

05/05/2016 - 1:17pm It's top five

in a crazy high number of subjects

05/05/2016 - 11:10am Never too old for a high top!

Age is only a number my man.

05/05/2016 - 11:00am I...What?

What exactly is bad about these? Classic style, great colors, etc.?

02/06/2016 - 12:06pm Yeah, for sure

Pochetttino seems to have them in a good place, in that it doesn't just feel like luck at this point. 

02/06/2016 - 11:37am Been a surprisngly good year for them

COYS!

01/06/2016 - 12:06am I just moved here for work

Where do Michigan people hang out/what do they do in non-football season?

01/06/2016 - 12:06am I just moved here for work

Where do Michigan people hang out/what do they do in non-football season?

12/19/2015 - 9:07am That is quite the list

One thing I will say is that as an OOS student in 2009 with no particular ties to the school, Michigan was fairly "meh" to me. Flash to six years and one graduate degree from an Ivy later, and going to Michigan ended up being one of the best experiences of my life in many ways, and most of those had nothing to do with sports (and it was equal/better to the Ivy).

12/08/2015 - 9:27pm Ugh

They finally come to Philly, and I move to Texas. (I know, I know, they came to St. Joe's last year, but it's not the same.)

12/03/2015 - 1:47pm I'm sympathetic

As I don't want my donation to just go to pad admin salary. I have donated in the past, and specifically given to undergrad scholsrships, which is something near and dear to my heart. I'm sure you could find something like that.

10/10/2015 - 9:53pm Yeah, I work in consulting

And no Sparties.

09/28/2015 - 8:09pm I went to undergrad at Michigan

and thankfully never needed the program, but I was an RA at my graduate institution, and they had the same setup (same name and everything), and it was notorious for having a two week waiting list, which became a minor scandal when the school started having a rash of suicides. Shame that it has to go like that for people to finally take notice and give a program more resources.

09/26/2015 - 11:37pm Well, some of it is

what the rest of the poll does, too. Obviously, the 22 spot is open, and 25 Mizzou and 20 GT both lost, but Okie State at 24, Wisconsin at 22, and Stanford at 21 all won, so I dunno where that puts us really. It would be a bit premature to put us above 20, I feel.

09/20/2015 - 12:53am Cody Kessler?

Across town.

09/19/2015 - 1:24am Or

Wear khakis and a polo to work, and bring your fan gear in a backpack to put on after.

09/13/2015 - 11:26pm True story

I knew a teacher who was trying to get the pay raise associated with having a Master's, so she enrolled in a University of Phoenix program and got another teacher to take the tests for her. How would anyone know?

09/13/2015 - 11:24pm True

I enrolled back in 2009, went to grad school, and haven't had to hold a job yet. Hopefully this changes next week.

09/05/2015 - 3:04pm Well,

it's not like anyone in the West is a shoo in to do much of anything.

08/31/2015 - 3:55pm Eh

I mean, I want us to win, too, but two of them have us at least beating the spread, and clearly it's a tough game one way or another.

08/29/2015 - 7:29pm Whoah there

Christopher Walken.

08/08/2015 - 5:18pm Yeah, for sure

Seems like the strategy is to bring up the yoof, as it's probably the most efficient way to get talent.

08/08/2015 - 2:40pm I

recommend following Spurs. Good enough to eventually challenge for Top 4 once they build their new stadium and get the NFL money, but not Chelsea, City, or United, so you don't have to feel dirty rooting for them.

08/02/2015 - 10:07pm Question

Is his first name Sir Patrick, or just Sir?

07/27/2015 - 11:21am I really think

the only smart thing for the B1G to do at this point is to get associate members, a la Hopkins for lacrosse. I think logistically/academically, it doesn't make sense to pick up any former Big 12 members, should more defect. The financial burdens of getting an ACC member are huge right now.

 

Also, incidentally, Hopkins hasn't joined the CIC. At least not yet.

07/13/2015 - 1:09pm I'm sure it's not crazy changes

But they must account for slight shifts. Even 46% yield is up significantly from years past when extrapolated across real numbers. Probably as admission rate goes down, yield will continue to go up, so that has to be taken into account as well.

07/01/2015 - 11:38pm Ugh.

Right when I leave town forever...

06/28/2015 - 5:18pm Relevant Update:

06/26/2015 - 4:56pm Yeah, but

I'm able to play football up to my own standards. That doesn't mean I could be a competent player for the team, and would just be risking my own health if I tried.

06/15/2015 - 11:57am Sigh

06/15/2015 - 11:52am Look man

On one level, I totally agree that it's a bit disconcerting that a guy who has been to the Superbowl in the last five years is filling a class with 2 stars when a certain number of players with more stars or stronger offer sheets have some interest. On the other hand, couldn't that be seen as an argument in favor of these kids having a good amount of talent that becomes obvious in person? From what I understand, receiving two stars at this stage is more often just an acknowledgement that a player exists, as evidenced by the fact that most sites haven't actually ranked these players. If they're still two stars on signing day, sure, be a little concerned, but I think there's a solid chance they end up better regarded nationally than they are now, and everyone will be saying "man, we sure were smart to get in on them when we did".

I'll add London Calling and Give 'em Enough Rope this time.
