12/03/2014 - 10:12pm If that's what it takes for

If that's what it takes for you to avoid law school, then don't ever leave this site.

10/16/2014 - 3:05pm Along those same lines, Trey

Along those same lines, Trey is listed at 6'1" 190 lbs. I'm not sure why Ace had it in his head that Walton had any appreciable size advantage compared to Trey or Spike.

09/25/2014 - 7:20pm That was 2009

That was 2009.

09/15/2014 - 1:16pm They outperformed

They outperformed expectations vs OSU last year despite losing

09/12/2014 - 10:49pm I looked at the egg shaped

I looked at the egg shaped ones at Lowe's this spring but settled on an 18.5 inch weber smokey mountain because I felt it would last longer. So far it's been great.

08/19/2014 - 1:01pm He has not used his regular

He has not used his regular redshirt yet, so no need to worry about a medical one.

08/13/2014 - 8:41pm pretty sure

pretty sure Mark did not play in last year's game. 

07/25/2014 - 12:39pm I don't

I don't want anything else out of him. I was just answering your question. And in my initial post I was not trying to criticize Jabrill or be a party pooper, I was just pointing out something that was obvious but had gone unmentioned thus far.

07/25/2014 - 11:14am No

No, flexing doesn't make the current state of his physique less impressive. It just makes the comparison of before and after photos less meaningful because it is not a true apples to apples comparison.

07/25/2014 - 10:10am Sorry,

I forgot it was Friday already.

07/25/2014 - 10:05am Is no one

Is no one else going to point out how he is clearly flexing harder in each successive picture?

06/25/2014 - 10:29pm Half the

Half the "white people" on this board agree with you. Please don't alienate the non-ignorant people by lumping everyone together.

06/16/2014 - 4:34pm Was there

Was there ever even a possibility of it being a felony?

03/19/2014 - 12:31pm I looked that up

I looked that up once. If I remember correctly someone in New Jersey tried it, but the court said they were still in control of the vehicle, so it was still a DUI.

03/19/2014 - 7:40am Probation

Probation, not parole. But ya, that way he has the remainder of his sentence hanging over his head as an incentive to not screw up again.

03/07/2014 - 12:17pm If it makes

If it makes you feel better I tried to edit my post to add Roy Roundtree to my list but I couldn't because you responded, so in essence you also beat me by one minute.

03/07/2014 - 12:12pm Jason Avant

Jason Avant.

03/06/2014 - 12:29pm I'm almost positive

I'm almost positive they wore the blue alternates at least once last year. Perhaps during the B1G tournament? I don't think they had long sleeves though.

03/05/2014 - 3:18pm I thought

I thought you were talking about basketball for a second.

03/01/2014 - 6:54pm You mean conference championships?

Yes, people do care about those.

02/12/2014 - 1:26pm Can't believe

Can't believe you forgot Hansbrough.

02/12/2014 - 11:14am Murphy plays for

Murphy plays for Lake Michigan Catholic, not St. Joe HS, and they didn't have any mutual opponents last year, so I think you are mistaken about playing against Murphy.

FWIW, I think Dekurtis has not received any offers because he plays at such a small school. He also has an inconsistent motor on the field. Nonetheless, he has only been playing organized football for a few years and should improve a lot in a college program. Borges visited him at his school once or twice in the past year, and he's taken some unofficials to msu.

02/11/2014 - 9:26pm HYTA

HYTA applies to people between age 17 and 20.  So yes it applies to people tried as adults.

01/30/2014 - 2:09pm Damnit

Damnit. Good call, I should have known better than to not double check what I was about to say.

01/30/2014 - 1:33pm No

No, the same conduct constitutes sexual assault today as it did in 2009. Only the amount of evidence needed to prove the conduct was changed.

01/08/2014 - 10:23pm How very

How very Notre Dame of you...

12/17/2013 - 9:46pm Thanks for your input everybody

Thanks for your input everybody.  I think he would be inclined to go the normal business route if it were an option, but unfortunatley the admisson requirements are probably too stringent.  

10/10/2013 - 4:48pm Heiko

Heiko said in a podcast that reports from practice were that he couldn't cover anybody.

10/09/2013 - 9:37pm Home games for NW

Home games for NW usually feature a ton of Michigan fans, so that's not necessarily a bad thing.

10/09/2013 - 9:23pm Rock, Paper, Scissors

It refers to the coach's ability to call the right play at the right time and/or have the right play design for the situation (e.g. properly throwing rock when the opposing coach throws scissors).

10/09/2013 - 1:23pm I like the idea

I like the idea of a running efficiency statistic like Borges mentioned.  I'm not sure if I've been living under a rock, but I've never heard it mentioned like that before.  I think that would be an valuable thing for Brian, Seth, or another contributor with time to track.  

10/08/2013 - 5:43pm Something

Something can be unsurprising and upsetting at the same time.

10/05/2013 - 9:56pm He returned to the game

He returned to the game, so he's probably fine.

10/05/2013 - 8:33pm Good thing

Good thing that wasn't offensive.  Since when is it okay to insult others' religions on this board? 

10/05/2013 - 6:10pm It's happening at

It's happening at every school, we are just not an exception. Time to change something (either stadium experience or our expectations).

10/02/2013 - 3:54pm I was a kickstarter

I was a kickstarter.

10/02/2013 - 3:35pm Seth


What method are you using to ship the magazines?  I am moving in a little over a week and can forward my mail, but if you are using UPS or Fedex i don't think I will get the magazine in time.  Can I give you a new address to send it to?  Thanks.

10/02/2013 - 11:42am Kenny Demens

Kenny Demens taking over for Obi Ezeh in 2010 is a great example of this.

09/28/2013 - 3:32pm oh damn

oh damn, I gave up, the stream was too bad to make it worth my while.

09/28/2013 - 3:22pm nice diving catch

nice diving catch by Peppers

09/25/2013 - 11:36pm This team has some

This team has some seriously funny guys.  It makes rooting for them so much more fun.  

09/25/2013 - 9:05pm Weren't some

Weren't some on MLB Network last year?  Did they commit to not doing that again?

09/25/2013 - 11:43am I agree

I agree to a certain extent.  Reporters absolutely need to try to ask more useful questions.  I'm really just saying that I'm somewhat sympathetic in general to the reporters at press conferences because they are walking a narrow line sometimes.  Heiko wasn't exactly the best example for me to use for a few reasons.  First, not every coach would be as nice to Heiko as Borges has been, and even Borges has been short with him at times.  Second, Heiko writes for a much different audience than Joe Schmo from the local news.  Regular reporters aren't pestering coaches about more technical things because they would be over the head of and/or uninteresting to the average reader.  

09/25/2013 - 10:06am I think it

I think it goes both ways.  Reporters ask lazy questions because they know that coaches rarely give candid answers.  In return, coaches give crappy generic answers because they don't want to reveal real information and because they don't respect the reporters' questions.  Look at how much of a struggle it has been for Heiko to get real X's and O's answers out of the coaches regarding certain topics. 

09/23/2013 - 7:34pm It probably

It probably wasn't the students' money that paid for the tickets.

09/23/2013 - 10:42am I don't think snowflakes

I don't think snowflakes need to be negative, we do snowflake threads after every game.  It was started as a way to prevent everybody with a unique idea/opinion (i.e. snowflake) from starting a new post and cluttering up the board.

09/19/2013 - 3:24pm I totally agree

I totally agree, as long as he continues to not blow assignments back there he is an actual asset for the defense instead of the hopefully-not-huge-negative that many were expecting before the start of the season.  

09/17/2013 - 9:36am Yeesh

Yeesh, this was sooo negative.  Also you guys are kind of harsh to Heiko, I am interested to hear about what the coaches are seeing in practice.

09/13/2013 - 12:42pm yes


09/12/2013 - 12:33pm If you are going to define dual threat so

If you are going to define dual threat so narrowly then of course no one will be able to come up with an example of one who won the superbowl.  The zone read has barely been present in the NFL before the past two years.  Dual threat means a threat to pass the ball or run it, which Aaron Rodgers absolutely is.
