07/18/2013 - 12:13pm You can see where this trend is going

As it becomes a more common and known practice, increasingly marginal prospects will do it to get an edge, so instead of Andrew Wiggins doing it, it will be lower tier D1 players, etc... until guys that are not even NCAA calibur players will be doing it because they think they are good enough, or are encouraged by AAU coaches, family, whomever to do it, and then they graduate and are just an extra old kid who didnt get an athletic scholarship, and possibly didnt value education enough to get an academic scholarship, and they basically wasted a year of their life in 7th grade reducing their earning potential in whatever career they get into by 1 year. Once this starts happening the NCAA will have to step in and do something. 

07/19/2012 - 12:28am The only thing I can safely predict

Voeckler will either win the polka dot jersey or die trying. That man would ride through a brick wall for a bit of glory. 

06/09/2012 - 2:46pm I disagree with this statement somewhat.

Sci Fi should make attempts to explain the improbable, thats what separates it from Fantasy. I'm not saying it has to be completely explained using current scientific principles, but there has to be an attempt. The Sci Fi elements of this movie were not the problem with it. in fact, if they had stuck with pure sci fi this would have been a better movie. The thriller/horror aspects of the movie really pulled me out of a pretty realistic sci fi world and just made it feel kind of cheesy. The character development, or lack thereof is what really destroyed this movie for me. The only character in the movie that really was relatable  was the android. His lack of humanity was really well conveyed through his reactions/responses, as well as how others perceived him. I still don't really understand why anyone else was even there outside of the two main scientists, no one had very clear motivations in the first place.

Watney... sneaking up on everyone.

03/29/2012 - 12:24pm depending on your viewpoint

things like the Occupy movement, or the Arab Spring were aided by twitter. Also, flashmobs, everyone loves a good flashmob, organized by twitter. Also, Barcrawls sometimes post the next bar to go to via twitter, which is an excellent use of the app on your phone.

03/22/2012 - 5:06pm Really enjoying the Trailer Park Boys reference

That is all.

03/21/2012 - 3:27pm Double Post

Fail

03/21/2012 - 3:26pm Pryor Jersey

Thats a game worn Terrelle Pryor Jersey right?

08/02/2011 - 4:42pm In Ithaca

There is an official UofM Spirit Group that goes to a sports bar called Uncle Joe's. We meet for all football and a most big basketball and hockey games. They have a facebook page if you want to sign up for messages regarding events. 

07/27/2011 - 5:41pm I believe

I believe that is not actually scaffolding, but instead is the inside of the scoreboard.

07/22/2011 - 5:06pm Yes Cycling

L'alpe D'Huez is probably the most famous mountain in cycling. 

07/22/2011 - 4:29pm Maybe

Maybe the craziest single day of riding in the Tour that I have ever seen. 

07/21/2011 - 4:23pm Great Stage today

nice to see someone with some balls,  that was an impressive attack. Tomorrow will be really interesting. Andy worked hard today, and Evans worked to catch him. Watch for frank to attack on the final climb.

07/21/2011 - 12:32am this stage is awesome

Really looking forward to seeing what happens, I have a feeling that having a few teammates around until the final climb could pay off for whoever has the strongest team. Sanchez and Contador will attack like mad men on the final climb if there is no separation. Poor Voeckler is going to kill himself to keep Yellow but he cannot do it, can he? 

07/20/2011 - 2:09am I would normally agree with you

but the finish here is pretty similar to stage 16 where contador took a minute out of Andy Schleck. I dont see any reason why he won't try it again and see what happens, he needs time on the next three stages, and any chance to weaken his opponents he should take. The Schlecks as well as voeckler looked vulnerable, and it would be unwise not to press the attack and give them a day to "recover" if you can call that stage map recovery. 

07/19/2011 - 4:48pm Every stage from here on out is much watch

Tomorrow will be much like today with a hard climb followed by a tricky descent. I expect some more attacks on the final climb, maybe from Sanchez, I wonder who would get on his wheel. Then 2 days with hard mountain top finishes. If Andy Schleck has anything in him he will have to attack hard in these stages, he needs the time before the TT. 

07/19/2011 - 4:07pm on a 70 footer

Having Mike Martin grinding on the winches would be a huge advantage. He could get a Spinnaker up in no time. 

07/18/2011 - 3:01pm Nobody talks about Sammy Sanchez

But that guy is an elite climber and rides a pretty good TT. I don't think he gets the respect of the other contenders, and I could see him escaping in the alps to take some more time from the other leaders. He's definitely my darkhorse to spoil the party (if the reigning olympic champion can be considered a dark horse). But overall at this point its Cadel Evan's tour to lose. his form in the mountaints looks good enough, and he should take a lot of time out of the others in the TT. 

06/25/2011 - 9:43pm Bornstein

is killing The US team. He missed his mark on both goals.

06/23/2011 - 8:41pm Jan Vesely

So far he has won the draft easily. First he makes out with his girlfriend immediately upon being picked and the whole arena erupts. Then in his interview when asked if being called the European Blake Griffin is fair, he responds with "Blake Griffin is the American Jan Vesely." This guy is fantastic, And I am rooting for him based solely on his draft day performance. 

06/14/2011 - 11:49am An aerial view of what it would look like:

04/10/2011 - 7:07pm Jan 29th, 2005

fun times.

04/10/2011 - 12:16pm one more, since when will I get to post these again?

 

04/10/2011 - 12:13pm Also, knighting the snow bears at Blimpie Burger, same night.

04/10/2011 - 12:08pm Knights

11/19/2010 - 8:22pm miller lite is never regular

never forget that. 

11/19/2010 - 8:21pm Four Loko

may it never run out. 

11/12/2010 - 2:54pm so for those not watching

soony entered the zone, a defender challenged, and a favorable deflection kept the ball right at soony's feet in stride. he played it forward to moody who was posting up about 12 yards out, he gave it right back and soony buried it far post with his right foot. 

11/12/2010 - 2:51pm great goal

terrible celebration. 

11/12/2010 - 1:51pm mich should be up at least 1 maybe 2

we have controlled the ball in their end for the entire half except maybe 1 8 minute stretch .

11/12/2010 - 1:27pm momentum shift

now michigan seems to be out of position and wisconsin is pressing. 

11/12/2010 - 1:18pm Go Blue

We are dominating early, I don't think Wisconsin has strung together more than 2 passes. 

11/12/2010 - 11:49am This isnt'

I don't see how this is that much different than RR taking a chance at signing Demar Dorsey. 5 Star kid, but other schools were backing off him because they knew there was little hope in signing the guy. The only difference is academics vs. amateur status. I don't think many of us blame RR for trying to sign Dorsey, but we seem pretty quick to pounce on Calipari trying to sign this guy. 

10/05/2010 - 11:55am Yeah

I remarked that watching that game was like watching Michigan from 10 years ago vs. Michigan 2 years from now. 

10/05/2010 - 11:12am If you watched that Oregon Stanford game

Then you saw the effectiveness of the Jet Tempo. On several Oregon drives they caught Stanford either tired, or in a mismatch on the line, and ran up and snapped the ball w/ 27-28 seconds and just ran their basic zone read plays over and over again. Stanford couldnt do anything about it. 

09/18/2010 - 3:30pm rolling rock

lots of it. 

09/14/2010 - 5:34pm umm

if Denard injures his shoulder, like tate did last year, and if molk is lost for the season to injury like last year,  as well as our 2 top Running backs getting injured, like last year, then this year could be exactly like last year. also if Junior Hemingway, oh wait that already happened. 

09/11/2010 - 10:23pm he probably

wont play more than a half in those games, so his numbers aren't going to be too off the charts.

09/07/2010 - 4:37pm adam looks

less healthy every episode, its like supersize me but drawn out over years. I like the show, but they should have a couple of different hosts or something to spread around the calories. 

09/07/2010 - 9:50am If Trob cuts back after he catches

Stonum would have blocked the only guy back there after everyone else bit on the fake, and it would have been an easy six.

09/04/2010 - 11:46pm I am pretty happy we don't have Les Miles

at this moment. His team is choking big time. 

09/04/2010 - 9:14pm my fav part of the interview

was as soon as it was over, Denard ran to join his teammates in the corner to sing the victors, and he crossed the entire field in like .2 seconds. 

09/03/2010 - 1:38pm Thats great news

Now if only they will get NFL Red Zone HD channel on their sports tier. Ridiculous not to have that option when you are already paying for the sports tier. 

09/02/2010 - 10:18pm Im really looking forward to

Senior Hemingway next year.

09/02/2010 - 1:42pm but on first down

we do the "raising the roof with one hand" motion, the chop is reserved for an opposing 4th down. and yeah it definitely changed around 2000. 

09/02/2010 - 1:19pm thats true

but what was the chop called before we turned it into a claw?

09/02/2010 - 1:17pm Thanks

Thats a great link.

07/22/2010 - 11:45pm if you really are just looking to play sports games

get an xbox360 arcade. I picked up one last week at walmart for 150 + a $50 gift card, so it was basically 100 bucks.

07/10/2010 - 1:01pm Its a great sport

I've been watching the whole season on ESPN3. a great combination of rugby, soccer, and ultimate frisbee really. I really wish people played this here in the US, it looks like a lot of fun. the Geelong Cats are the best team out there right now,  but don't sleep on St. Kilda, they have a great fight song.

04/03/2010 - 5:39pm you can't watch UFR videos inline

enough said.
