Food for thought: The pace they ran that 10k is the same pace as the fastest marathon runners in the world.

I think osu finally realized they couldn't beat us, so they had to retreat. But they also figured they are stronger than GT, so that's the easiest path to take. We can finally begin helping our allies, as both GT and Florida have taken huge hits these past few days.

How do you get started investing in this Vanguard index fund? How high is the minimum "buy-in" to have an account? I'd love to get started, but I know literally less than nothing about long term investing.

I like the idea of being an outsider to the city, swooping in, and stealing the segment. Adds a bit of intrigue to the "game".
My home routes that I own, I continue running them trying to break my PR so I can protect whats mine. If I lose it, I consider it "stolen".

Strava is basically a social media site for runners and cyclists. There are segments, which are mostly popular routes, and the app tracks every attempt on that route. So if you can post the fastest time, you are the "winner" of that route. So it's fun to find routes in new cities, and try to steal a segment from someone. I have 1st place on segments on Maui, Big Island, and Oahu.
|05/08/2018 - 10:39pm||I plan ahead and star any||
I plan ahead and star any routes on strava I think I can steal close to where I'm staying. Running to explore a new area with the bonus of stealing a segment from someone is awesome.

Marchand crosses the line from pest to an idiot ruining the sport. The nhl messed up not reeling him in earlier, now hee can do anything without penalty. Pests are Holmstrom and Domi.

I wonder if the players of these features read these pieces. If so, I'm sure they appreciate the praise from us fans and writers.
So proud Rahk was a guy on the team I cheer for. What a great dude.
Thank you for the 4 years of super fun and successful basketball!
|04/13/2018 - 2:51pm||I think Brooks sees more time||
I think Brooks sees more time than you're predicting. Yeah DeJulius is a baller, but he's a freshamn PG in Beilein's system.
I see Brooks getting 15 mins/game split between pg and sg. DeJulius will get 5 mins/game and maybe increase minutes and play the role that Poole played this year.

I would like to see a Jets vs Leafs finals, but it'll probably be either Boston or Pittsburgh from the east, and Vegas or Nashville from the west

When you throw out the first pitch at a softball game, I assume you need to throw it underhand, like the way a softball is actually pitched? What would the reaction be if someone threw out the first pitch with an overhand motion instead?

I think Matthews will be the focus of our offense next year (if Mo goes Pro), but Poole will be #2.
I love the duo of Matthews and Poole; two long bodies that can attack and finish, and can hit from the outside. Not many teams have two dudes who can defend those guys 1v1.

I don't want to jump to conclusions, but I see three players with a C by their names; I don't think the C stands for Captain, I think it stands for Complicit.

Agree. We were in a catch 22 between who to put Matthews on: Bridges or Divencenzo.
|04/03/2018 - 3:23pm||This is true. Only way around||
This is true. Only way around it is to either pull the scholarship off an incoming freshman, or kick out one of the three: Davis, Brooks, Watson.
Neither are good options, but I'm sure Beilein has an idea on how to figure it out if Mo comes back.
|04/03/2018 - 2:47pm||I feel like we played as good||
I feel like we played as good as we could have on defense. Some ticky tack fouls aside, the only visible mistakes were not boxing out and giving up 12 OREBs.
I really hoped that we could stop both Brunson and Spellman. Well, they combined for 7-21 shooting, with 17 points, 13 rebs, 2 assists, and 3 TO's. Mission accomplished.
I figured we would struggle defending Bridges; that dude has the NBA written all over him. He was able to get whatever he wanted 1v1. Their sets and high screens with Bridges were a thing of beauty.
And then the wildcard, DiVincenzo. He was way too athletic for Robinson to defend, too tall for Rahk/Z to defend, and we needed Matthews on Bridges, so we were just in a bind. Poole couldn't stick with him; Livers couldn't stick with either Bridges or Divincenzo. They were just a matchup nightmare, even when we could eliminate two of their 4 top players.
And I think this shows the value of combining NBA talent with players that buy into a system for 4 years.
This gives optimism for envisioning Simpson + Teske + Livers combined with possible NBA talent like Poole/Matthews and incoming freshman Brazdeikis, Johns, and DeJulius. We'll have a really good combo of NBA talent and system guys. We could easily become the next Villanova if we continue to get players that buy into and can learn the system.
Go Blue! Excellent season which surpassed all expectations. Can't wait to see what we can do next season!
|04/03/2018 - 2:14pm||I just hope Cleveland can||
I just hope Cleveland can live up to expectations, and finally win the AFC North this year. They have the roster to do it, and every other team in their division is struggling. Can't wait to see this team make a deep run in the playoffs.

This preview made my stomach turn. Don't think I'm gonna get much work done today. We've got a bunch of David's vs a giant goliath. Our cast of misfit players has a shot to upset one of the greatest statistical teams in recent history. I love this team, and I hope their junkyard dog attitude and fight can overcome any and all who stand in their way. Go Blue!! One last game!! One more time! Do more! Say less!

I'm rooting for Michigan tomorrow, and I hope we can win. That would be really cool and would make me happy; but regardless of the result, this team has surpassed all expectations and I couldn't be more proud of these guys. Go Blue!

You could probably add Trice to the list. Taking a lower recruited guy, getting 4 good to great years out of him, and then him having a career making money in the D-league and overseas is a success in my mind.
But that takes the grand total to 4. Not a very good resume for Izzo.

This helps to put it in perspective. Thanks!
I've really appreciated your comments around here lately. Definitely a productive commenter!
I just don't want to see us repeat the FSU game where we miss 2 front ends of a 1 and 1. Those are killers. And since Loyola is foul averse, it may be 1 and 1 situations at the end. Lets just hope we're up by 7+ so it won't matter!
|03/29/2018 - 4:08pm||Gun to my head, yes.

A baller, yes perhaps he was.
Did he play like the #4 best recruit? And the best recruit ever under Izzo?
Fr stats: 23 mpg, 8 ppg, 45/34/80 shooting line FG/3pt/FT
So, great JR year, but nothing of note as a Fr or SO. and He didn't do much in the NBA. Only started 60 games
|03/29/2018 - 3:19pm||My only wish is that this||
My only wish is that this game doesn't come down to FT's. They are a way better FT shooting team than we are, so please keep a 10+ point lead the entire 2nd half. Thanks!
|03/29/2018 - 2:24pm||Reposting b/c Relevant||
I decided to go back to 2003 (as far back as 247 goes), and see the highly rated recruits (Top 100 based on 247sports ranking) MSU has brought in, and how they did in college (and if they had a pro career (NBA/overseas)).
Number who didn't play to their potential based on ranking: 16 players (Brown, Naymick, Gray, Herzog, Dahlman, Allen, Roe, Lucious, Nix, Sherman, Appling, Byrd, Dawson, Costello, Kaminski, Davis)
Number who were TBD: 6 players (McQuaid, Bridges, Langford, Winston, Ward, Jackson) Analysis below
2013: None in the top 100.

OOH is the perfect player for today's NBA. he's a stretch big that can knock down 3s, block anything that comes into the paint, and is crazy athletic. Give him 2 years in the nba and he'll be borderline all star status.

I love that teams and "experts" still think Michigan has a soft defense, then act surprised when we're physical, tough, and contest every shot.
Looking at our starting 5, no way you'd assume they are a top 3 defensive team. It's a rude awakening for opponents when they finally see us in action.
|03/27/2018 - 8:20pm||I was 110 pounds when I||
I was 110 pounds when I played football in HS. If I ever tried to tackle with my head, I would've crumpled into a ball of broken bones. I either hit the dude with my shoulder and wrapped up behind the knees, or I tripped up their ankles and held on for dear life.
And I still broke my wrist trying to arm tackle some dudes leg. I don't see why anybody would allow a kid to learn to make plays by leading with their head with their eyes looking at the ground.
|03/27/2018 - 6:44pm||I think having (hopefuly)||
I think having (hopefuly) Patterson could help Ruiz, since he has the most experience out of our QBs. Speight was very good at reading schemes and making calls; Peters + Kugler...not so much.
I think I like a Ruiz/Patterson combo making reads and adjustments. We can't be predictable again. We need to have somebody keep D's on their toes so they can't correctly guess every play we're going to run. And I think Patterson could go a long way in making this happen.

I disagree with the comment as well. We all know conference coaches know systems and tendencies of every team in their conference. Obviously this means more on a short turnaround vs having an entire week to prepare, but nonetheless it's still a leg up.
He knows their system, he knows those players, and he knows that coach.
