...but BMO's in Canada--gotta assume that the threshold's lower there.  Also, remember that Chicago was rejected in the US's 2022 bid, too.

06/13/2018 - 12:16pm Remember reading a while…

Remember reading a while back that Chicago apparently wasn't under consideration due to the seating capacity (only 61,500) of Soldier Field.

Format changes to 16 groups of three starting in 2026, too.

If Don Brown wanted him, I don't give a fuck what his measurables are.

Of course Alabama has a Kenyan distance runner.  Even their track & field bagmen are on point.

Keith Hernandez - 42nd Round, 1971

Ryne Sandberg - 20th Round, 1978

John Smoltz - 22nd Round, 1985

Mike Piazza - 62nd Round, 1988

Andy Pettitte - 22nd round, 1990

Mark Beuhrle - 38th Round, 1998

At any given point, each franchise prolly has a dozen-ish kids in their system who are legit MLB prospects.  And those kids need to play in minor league games...





Short Season

Rookie (anywhere from two to four teams)

...and each of those teams needs 25-ish players.  Meaning each team has at least 150 minor league players who exist solely so that the dozen-ish with an MLB future can play competitive baseball every day.  Hence the 40 round draft.

06/06/2018 - 12:26pm…

06/01/2018 - 12:41pm "Lewerke would have improved our QB situation."

I mean, this would've improved UM's QB situation last year.  Not exactly a high bar to clear.

05/31/2018 - 5:33pm I'd wager on a 3:30 kickoff.

UM/MSU falls on the same day as a hypothetical NLCS Game 6, which would also be on either FOX or FS1.

05/30/2018 - 9:35am "In the last 45 quarters of the season, WRs caught zero TDs."

Techincally, you're correct.  Technically.

05/22/2018 - 3:46pm ...

05/21/2018 - 10:52pm Size.

Alumni Hall only sat 5,500-ish. Rosemont sat 17,000-ish... which quickly turned into 12,000-ish empty seats every game.

05/21/2018 - 5:53pm Location. Location. Location.

DePaul played in Alumni Hall (which was on-campus in the heart Lincoln Park) thru the 1979-80 season, at which point they moved their home games all the way out to Rosemont. Which absolutely *crushed* their recruiting.

05/19/2018 - 3:08pm Colt Brennan!

Kid could totally sling it in college!

05/17/2018 - 9:53am Seconded on Folsum.


Went there for a night game against ASU in 2016.  It was goregous.

05/16/2018 - 12:37pm Love the option to slow down the videos, Seth.

Really helps me "see" what you're talking about much better!

05/10/2018 - 11:37am "...but I'm a short Asian dude."

Username checks out.

05/10/2018 - 11:36am "Lebron has been dragging bums to the Finals year after year."

Yeah, in the current Eastern Conference.  Which has been absolutely awful for going on a decade.

MJ was losing to the Celtics & Pistons of the 1980s.  Those caliber of teams are all in the Western Conference these days.

05/10/2018 - 11:31am ...

05/09/2018 - 12:19pm "Fuck Gregg Williams."

~ every Vikes fan, everywhere

05/08/2018 - 11:51am The General Lee

05/08/2018 - 9:17am Gisele's a dozen years older than Kate!

Kinda comparing (extremely attractive) apples to (extremely attractive) oranges.

05/08/2018 - 9:05am ...

05/07/2018 - 10:30pm Yep.

"I am 100% committed to UM until Stanford informs me of my admission status."

05/03/2018 - 10:04am Technically, correct.

But the payout from Jerryworld was $6 million.

05/03/2018 - 8:49am Arksansas was never gonna happen... soon as the B1G went to nine conference games.  UM will never have a season in which they only play six home games.

05/03/2018 - 8:45am The B1G rotates one "permanent" crossover opponent...… four-year blocks.  IU/Purdue never changes.  The rest do.

04/25/2018 - 9:42pm Hurst's dad...

...started in the NFL for seven years. Prolly not the best example.

04/25/2018 - 10:54am Finally made it to Glacier...

...during the summer of 2016.  Made Yellowstone look like a parking lot by comparison.  I'm only slightly exaggerating.

04/23/2018 - 1:21pm I haven't upgraded my gaming system since the OG Xbox.

I'm still killing the CPU in NCAA '08 with Chad Henne!

04/18/2018 - 12:29pm So, UM should get a 5* freshman?

If only the coaching staff had thought of that...

04/17/2018 - 12:32pm Totally agree on "games are worth three points."

Regulation W = 3 points

OT W = 2 points

OT L = 1 point

04/17/2018 - 11:17am Eliminate Divisions in the NBA & NHL.

I can't even name them all.  Just have an Eastern & Western Conference in each, and balance the schedule accordingly.

04/09/2018 - 3:28pm Uranus

04/06/2018 - 12:49pm So much this.

With even average QB play, DPJ has an extra 200-ish yards and 4-ish TDs on the handful of plays where he was hilariously wide open behind entire secondaries.

04/02/2018 - 2:09pm You work for an OSU grad?

Just hide in the freezer & fuck around on your phone while some other kid flips the burgers...

04/02/2018 - 12:45pm No kidding.

I had flashbacks to every Ohio State football preview of the past decade-ish.

03/29/2018 - 11:46am So is Ramzy.

Dude's an IU grad.

03/27/2018 - 11:59am Yup.

Dude wasn't considered a Top 100 player.  Trust Beilein.

03/27/2018 - 11:58am Additionally...

22) MD PF Jalen Smith, Maryland

27) IL CG Ayo Dosunmu, Illinois

38) NC SF Aaron Wiggins, Maryland

48) MN C Daniel Oturu, Minnesota

50) IA SG Joe Wieskamp, Iowa

52) OH PF Jerome Hunter, Indiana

57) MI PF Marcus Bingham, Michigan State

74) MI PF Brandon Johns, Michigan

...UM's highest-rated recruit (via the 247 Composite) ranks 8th amongst current B1G commits.  Stop worring about starzzzzzzz.  Trust Beilein.

03/27/2018 - 11:49am In 2012-13...

...UM had a loaded team with a bunch of future NBA players and went to the National Championship Game.  They followed that up with a B1G Championship & Elite Eight the next season.  Recruiting since then...

2014 - 5 commits, 30th (ranking using the 247 Composite)

2015 - 1 commit, 107th

2016 - 4 commits, 31st

2017 - 3 commits, 43rd

2018 - 5 commits, 16th (as of this morning)

If you're expecting UM to all of a sudden start reeling in Top 5 classes full of one-and-done types, I don't know what to tell you.

03/26/2018 - 4:48pm Midway thru the 1st Half...

...I texted two buddies (a Duke & a ND grad) and asked them how the hell FSU scores.

03/26/2018 - 12:15pm ...

03/26/2018 - 5:34am I'd argue that UConn basketball...

...was the single biggest casualty of the "conference roulette" that took place a couple years ago. Their boat anchor of a football program is killing them.

In hindsight, they would have been better off staying in the Big East (for everything else) and going independent in football.

03/25/2018 - 12:07pm "Bagley is having his way with us..."

Just like Jaren Jackson did?

03/25/2018 - 12:04pm Guessing UM gets the early game, as well.

If you're rooting for the late slot, mos def cheer *against* Villanova today. Villanova vs. KU or Duke would be guaranteed the late slot.

03/25/2018 - 8:26am Notice the time he/she posted.

I'm impressed it's "close enough."
