My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
|06/29/2010 - 3:45pm||Beavis,||
First and foremost, thanks for taking the time to research the relevant information in order for this scenario to happen.
In regards to the cap, the projected value for the upcoming season is $56.1 million, so getting quality players to fill the remainder of the roster would be difficult. However, don't forget about the cap exceptions (mid-level, bi-annual, etc.) that allow a team to go over the cap. Also, I'm not that familiar with how the luxury tax works, but if the team is OK with paying the tax, couldn't they pursue more talented (and more expensive) players?
|06/29/2010 - 3:16pm||The Heat are actually in a||
The Heat are actually in a good position to pull this off. I believe they're 44 million under the cap, so they could sign three max-contract players.

Or, as John Madden once said, "the team that scores the most points will probably win the game."
|03/25/2010 - 4:00pm||No love for Dr. Speedy Nutz?||
In my opinion, Dr. Nutz is seeded far too low at 10. He should be a 3 or 4 at worst.
Also, gotta love the oxymoronic name of King Jamell Modest. Actually, I don't know. I guess a king could be modest.
Finally, Can Du.

You know better than to come 'round here posting that nonsense...
|02/08/2010 - 7:19pm||This is no contest.||
Armenian Studies (AAPTIS) 274 with Kevork Bardakjian and NERS 211 with Ronald Fleming. For AAPTIS 274, all you had to do was write two papers, regardless of quality, and you were guaranteed an A. You didn't even have to show up to class. Same with NERS 211, except there were two exams instead of two papers, one of which was a take-home.
|02/08/2010 - 6:58pm||I echo those sentiments.||
I hated EECS 280 more than any other class during my time at Michigan. It was ridiculously hard, the professor sucked, the autograder sucked, and it was ridiculously hard (wait, I said that already). I mentioned this in a previous thread back during finals week last December, but that class single-handedly altered the course of my college career. I became an academic felon (three honor code violations) and changed majors to IOE. Best decision I ever made.
Having said all that, I don't consider EECS 280 to be the most difficult class I took. No, that distinction would go to ME 235 (Thermodynamics). I know some of you mechanical engineers are probably reading this and laughing at me, but I didn't know what the fuck was going on in that class. Good thing no one else in the class knew what was going on either. As I recall, the average for every exam was in the 30% range. I recorded the lowest test score ever in my academic career during that class: a 17% on the second midterm. Amazingly I came out with a C at the end of the term.

I thought for sure Ford would file for bankruptcy last summer, so I stayed away from them and instead bought a shitload of Citigroup and AIG stock. Not a bad decision, but neither stock has increased as much as Ford's has.
|01/12/2010 - 8:52pm||Holy Shit||
Did not see this one coming at all. Hopefully USC's bridge with Baxter is irreversibly burned.
|12/23/2009 - 1:35pm||YES||
It just keeps getting better and better.
|12/17/2009 - 5:24pm||Charles Antonelli||
The professor for my class was Charles Antonelli, and he was beyond worthless. And apparently I'm not the only one that feels that way: http://www.ratemyprofessors.com/ShowRatings.jsp?tid=774451
During my time as a student at Michigan, there were only two professors/lecturers that I would describe as beyond worthless. One was Antonelli, and the other was Richard "Don't call me Dick" Gerth. Any IOE students reading this should be very familiar with that name and know exactly what I mean.
|12/17/2009 - 12:23pm||I feel your pain, my friend||
EECS 280 was the turning point of my academic career at Michigan. After failing both midterms, getting zeroes on the final three program assignments, bombing the final, and picking up three honor code violations for copying other people's code, it was pretty clear to me that I should change my major. And change I did... to IOE.
|12/17/2009 - 12:18pm||Ah yes, NERS 211||
Ronald Fleming was the guy's name. What was funny was that the stuff he covered in class was not at all what was actually on the exam. That class was the one and only time where I sat down to take a test, didn't understand one single question, and yet didn't feel panicked or pressured at all. Somehow I ended up with an A- despite bombing both midterms and probably the final as well. Looking back on it now, I feel like I got cheated.
|12/16/2009 - 6:26pm||Hallelujah!||
Finally, some good news regarding Michigan athletics.
|12/11/2009 - 12:39pm||"Michigan is not that great of an academic school."||
|12/10/2009 - 12:03pm||I still have faith||
that the basketball team can get things turned around. One has to believe that eventually at least a few of those missed shots (especially from the 3-point line) will start falling. I mean, that sub-30% 3-point FG percentage can't continue for the rest of the season, can it?
|12/09/2009 - 7:21pm||Yep||
|12/09/2009 - 12:29pm||Yeah, the hint provided by the OP was extremely misleading||
Roberson was cut from the team this past July. I was looking through the current Bulls roster, and there was no one that fit the description of being one of Woodley's former teammates.
|12/08/2009 - 7:53pm||My goodness||
That is a hell of a list assembled there. I voted for Braylon obviously, but Larry Fitzgerald and Calvin Johnson deserve to make the All-Decade team as well. It's a damn shame one of them will be left off.
|12/07/2009 - 6:11pm||Awesome||
Congratulations to Suh. Guy was the most dominant defensive player this season by far. To not invite him would have been a crime.
|12/04/2009 - 5:48pm||Let's see||
Poor grammar, contradictory statements, and hatred for complete strangers on a message board... yep, all of the elements of a winning post are present.
|12/01/2009 - 3:24pm||I understand what you mean||
My comment was just based on the one pic from her Facebook profile, where she does look attractive. Looking at some of the other photos of her from the Google image search, I have to admit that her face is not the greatest out there. I do think she has a fairly nice body though, at least from the few pics that I've seen. So yeah, by no means do I think she is the hottest woman alive, but I also would not fault any man for wanting to sleep with her.
As a side note (and this is not in direct response to your post), I will make sure to indicate when I'm just kidding around. I think my post was taken a little too seriously by some people around here...
|12/01/2009 - 2:13pm||Huh?||
It's just a joke, man. Relax.
|12/01/2009 - 1:44pm||Rachel Uchitel||
The party planner from New York that Tiger was allegedly involved with, Rachel Uchitel, is pretty fucking hot (see http://188.8.131.52/search?q=cache:kDE-Qo2737QJ:www.facebook.com/peop…). Shit, I would've cheated on my wife, too!

Tyler Hansen has started the last three games.

They just announced on the game broadcast that Best has a concussion and feeling in all his extremities. Very good news given how serious the injury could have been.
|11/06/2009 - 2:36pm||Dude, that bitch is crazy||
Were the refs blind? How the hell did she not get thrown out? Jesus.
|11/05/2009 - 6:19pm||Yeah, I agree||
I fear there is going to be a significant backlash against Islamic-Americans akin to post-9/11. I'm reading some of the comments from the ABC article, and many people, without knowing any facts besides his name and rank, are already writing things like:
|11/05/2009 - 6:06pm||Very sad.||
According to ABC News, the gunman that got killed by police has been identified as Malik Nadal Hasan. He was about to be deployed to Iraq. One can only wonder what drove Hasan and the other suspected gunmen to do what they did.
|11/05/2009 - 5:42pm||I like VA Tech big in this game.||
35-14. I think the Hokies will be be extra motivated given the way they lost last week's game against UNC. Oh yeah, and there's also the revenge factor for last year's loss to ECU.
|11/04/2009 - 2:49pm||Suh is an absolute beast,||
but the rest of their team doesn't impress me. I think as long as Helu (the RB) is held in check and if Michigan protects the ball (a big if, I know), it should be a pretty winnable game. Then again, I said the same thing about MSU, Iowa, Penn State, and Illinois...
|11/04/2009 - 1:32pm||Man, I hope that matchup becomes reality.||
I would LOVE to see Michigan avenge that horrific loss from four years ago during the Year of Infinite Pain. To this day, I still hate everything associated with the Sun Belt conference (because of the refs obviously).
|11/03/2009 - 2:38pm||Read this and you'll understand|
|10/23/2009 - 12:51pm||I agree 100%||
I, too, believe that Penn State is overrated and we will win handily. They are definitely not the 13th best team in the nation... not even close actually.
Michigan 34 PSU 17.
|10/22/2009 - 6:43pm||That's an easy fix.||
Just make sure you select Jose Calderon or Ray Allen in the later rounds to offset that. :)
|10/22/2009 - 6:39pm||I had the first pick||
in my draft earlier this week, and I went with Lebron. Bron is the only player in the league that comes even remotely close to averaging a triple-double. I think last season he averaged 28 points, 7 boards, and 7 assists per game. That is absurd. Paul is a great player as well, but I would actually take Dwyane Wade before him. Wade is basically a one-man team down there in Miami.
In years past, I've never had higher than the third pick and my strategy has always been to go for a dominant point guard and center with my first two picks. That sets me up nicely in at least the three major categories: scoring, rebounding, and assists. Don't get me wrong, you can find good point guards and centers in later rounds, but the number of elite players (in terms of fantasy value) at those two positions is very small. Elite wing players (again, in terms of fantasy numbers), on the other hand, can be found as late as the eighth or ninth round.
Some sleeper picks that I would recommend you draft earlier than their pre-draft ranking:
Andris Biedrins (GS)
|10/08/2009 - 11:17am||Not sure how up to date this list is, but here you go:|
|10/01/2009 - 3:39pm||Pretty dumb play...||
but it reminded me of a very similar play that occurred about a decade or so ago in a high school state title game. I don't remember the names of the teams or any other details; I just saw the highlight on TV. Anyway, Team A has a slim lead and they've got the ball on their own 1-yard line with only a few seconds left. All they have to do is run one play and they win. Team A's QB drops back in the end zone, runs around to let the time expire, and when he sees the clock hit all 0s, he just throws the ball in the air and starts celebrating. One of Team B's defensive linemen then immediately jumps on the ball, which was ruled a fumble, and Team B wins the championship.
|09/22/2009 - 6:44pm||Have the gods no mercy?||
|09/01/2009 - 2:10pm||I'm tired, boss.|
|08/11/2009 - 12:09pm||Clarification||
I think chitownblue is saying that Bollinger was better than DREW TATE, not Tate Forcier.
|07/29/2009 - 11:37am||Yeah||
He had a tumor on his spine, and he was also treated for melanoma back in 2001. Don't know if the two cases were related in any way, but it is sad news nonetheless. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family...
|07/14/2009 - 12:58pm||Man||
It's a damn shame that an absurd amount of negative points doesn't automatically lead to the banhammer...
