It's not a bad sign. Unless you're bulking incredibly clean it's par for the course to gain fat while putting on muscle. He can cut later. I'm sure they know what they're doing.

Bit of an overreaction to an innocuous statement don't ya think? Considering ~ half of all marriages fail and the fallout from those can be pretty emotionally + financially debilitating, it's reasonable that  some people question the purpose of a legal marriage. All else equal, if you love someone to no end, do you really need to get a court's recognition to consider that relationship valid? Any relationship that ought to evolve into marriage should have strong enough legs to support itself without a court document, shouldn't it? What's the point? Tax incentives? 

I'll still probably get married one day myself, but I don't think it's reasonable to call someone a miserable sob because he questions dubious social protocol.

04/07/2018 - 7:05pm Seconded all of this. O'Korn

Seconded all of this. O'Korn was especially frustrating to me. I believe it's against Rutgers where he throws a pick and starts chewing out Gentry for not coming back to the ball that eliminated any shred of respect I may have had left for him. 

03/31/2018 - 7:17pm 8 turnovers and 2/13 from 3

8 turnovers and 2/13 from 3 was incredibly rough. We need someone to step up. Gotta start pounding inside. Last thread was tough to read. Things are far from over. I am keeping faith. Weve had these games frequently and we find a way. Gotta yave faith.

03/31/2018 - 3:40pm Basketball's a game of runs.

Basketball's a game of runs. L went on a 9-2 run because of that foul. Momentum swing could've been totally different if that isn't called and it remains a one possession game; especially coming from your best player that's barely 6' making a play like that. But I think the reason people cling to it is because it's so darn obvious. The hell was the ref looking at? It's clear he was going to call a foul no matter what....because he did.

There is 0 reason to not foul in that scenario, regardless of who has the ball. Dudes an idiot.

Yep though Clemson is about to go down, leaving Duke, Fl. St., and Cuse. The initial post is also incorrect that only 1 ACC team can make the Final Four.

03/11/2018 - 1:44am It's ridiculous how many

It's ridiculous how many people in this thread haphazardly assert that Wilton abandoned the team. None of us have any idea what was going on in private; what Harbaugh or any of the coaches may have advised him to do for his and/or the team's best interests. The dude put his body on the line for our team. Speight was in the stands during the outback bowl; he did anything but abandon the team. He clearly loves Michigan and his twitter indicates he's still regularly in touch and on good terms with many of the athletes on the squad. I don't know how I feel about Wilton coming back as far as what it signifies for our ability to compete next year, but it's ridiculous to me to say that he abandoned the team when he had his back broken for the team only a couple months prior.

03/04/2018 - 5:05pm Allowing way too many

Allowing way too many offensive boards and they aren't going to be this cold from 3 the whole game. Hopefully we can grow the lead a bit by half. 

03/02/2018 - 11:31pm Think that includes his

Think that includes his buyout so it's a bit of a misleading stat. Believe he should be right around Beilein's salary next year; this year was just an exception.

Thank God. Can't leave Simpson in in these situations going forward. Still find it befuddling that we choose MAAR over Poole in the home stretch though. He missed layup after layup. Really glad he redeemed himself with the 3 and obviously the FTs. Hell of a pass by Livers.

Walton stole the girl I was dancing with at Skeeps a couple years back. Still salty about it. Why didn't he want to dance with me?

01/09/2018 - 1:49am Hogwash. He did what was

Hogwash. He did what was asked of him all year and all last year. Bama never has elite QBs. Hurts had 1 turnover this year. He ran an efficient and stable offense. It cerainly wasn't elite, but he did what was necessary to win. Bama certainly didn't win in spite of him. That implies that he didn't do what was asked of him, which he did.

12/19/2017 - 1:23pm One knee = two feet, no?

One knee = two feet, no? Looks to me like the receiver hauls the ball with one knee down and brings it towards is body, meaning he is an established runner, and THEN stretches out for the goal line in a separate move. It did not look like the stretch was part of the process of hauling the ball in, from my perspective. Especailly considering the call on the field was TD.

12/10/2017 - 12:50am SF and STL were both the ones

SF and STL were both the ones that leaked that Stanton rejected their deals lol. You say you're sure that Stanton would've accepted more than two teams but all reports indicate otherwise, and there were really only 4 or 5 players that were willing to absorb the contract in the first place. The Marlins definitely weren't the ones that spilled the beans...why do you think that's the case? I think if you had followed this sitution more closely you'd realize Jeter's hands were really tied by the no trade clause. It really seems like the only team Giancarlo would've gone to other than the Yankees was the Dodgers. Besides the Giants and Cardinals, who he both rejected, the only other player that may have been willing to absorb the contract was the Red Sox? Maybe? Who else? No other teams were even mentioned, and by all accounts Giancarlo had no interest in going to Boston. 

Just to list them out, obviously none of the other AL East teams could afford the contract. The NL East teams probably couldn't either (and I'm sure they'd prefer to trade him out of the division anyway...and I doubt Giancarlo would've gone to any other eastern team besides the Yankees). In the west, the Angels couldn't afford him, there were no mentions of Houston making a run and I doubt they could afford him anyway, the A's obviously couldn't and the Rangers...well again there was never a mention of them and I doubt Giancarlo would've gone to a noncontender in Texas instead of a coast, especially if he rejected better teams like the Cards and Giants. On the NL side the Padres obviously couldn't, nor could the Rockies or DBacks, so really all that's left is the Dodgers.

There just weren't that many options considering the massive amount of salary the Yankees were willing to take on. Jeter was screwed from the start.

12/10/2017 - 12:30am I don't follow your logic.

I don't follow your logic. There were only a certain number of players that could take on that contract. Regardless if Jeter talked to him ahead of time, the only two viable contenders were the Dodgers and the Yankees. The Yankees made a better offer than the Dodgers. He got the best deal he could've managed. Are you saying that they should've never dealt with the Cards or Giants to hide the fact that Stanton had given them little wiggle room? If so, I think the Yankees would've seen right through that regardless. At the end of the day, the Yankees were never going to take on that contract and give up top prospects, and Stanton was never going to go to teams with better offers than the Yankees. I don't think Jeter screwed up the negotiations. Everyone in the league knew the Marlins needed to move that contract, and the Yankees would've known they had the leverage if the Marlins continued to approach them for a deal instead of other players in the market. 

12/09/2017 - 11:51pm Yea I didn't think you were

Yea I didn't think you were hating at all lol I just follow the Yankees very closely so I'm trying to clarify the organization's goals, one of which is to remain under the luxury this year. This goal was stated before the beginning of the 2015 season and every move has been made with that in mind. Cashman is a savy GM that has turned sawdust into bookshelves... essentially turning Brendan Ryan and Brian McCann into Giancarlo Stanton. Pillaging the Cubs and Indians farm systems. Along with of course a ton of home grown talent in Judge, Sanchez, Bird, Severino etc. 

 

Hal Steinbrenner is slowly turning into his father. When Hank was running things after George passed, the Yanks were a bit more stingy. Hal has been saying recently that whatever money the Yankees have will be reinvested into the team. I don't doubt the Yankees will be more than amenable to opening their wallet in the upcoming years.
