Well, there is this 6'11" stretch 4 from West Podunk High who can leap out of the gym. Has an offer from Duke.

02/12/2019 - 6:03pm So it is about the money.

So it is about the money.

02/12/2019 - 9:24am Mattison is free to do what…

Mattison is free to do what he wants. But all that talk about being home, being near his daughter and grandchildren, having his wife work with his daughter at her store in Ann Arbor...just so much crap. The man has made eight figures coaching and tried to sell us that it's now about family. It's not. It's about the money. His right to do it. My right to consider him a phony.

02/12/2019 - 9:17am True. Meyer would stab…

True. Meyer would stab someone through the heart and not think twice. 

02/11/2019 - 4:12pm Ojabo will be drafted higher…

Ojabo will be drafted higher than Harrison. You heard it here first.

02/11/2019 - 4:11pm Vilain. If he can only get…

Vilain. If he can only get healthy.

02/11/2019 - 3:04pm Just gotta love this board…

Just gotta love this board. Now we get to question "analyst" hires. I consider myself (mostly) unqualified to render judgement on assistant coach hires. I am completely, totally and without question unqualified to comment on analyst hires. 

02/08/2019 - 12:31pm So, you have Pep Hamilton in…

So, you have Pep Hamilton in one league and Mike Riley in the other. You tell me which league overshadows the other.

02/08/2019 - 12:21pm AAF head coaches are a…

AAF head coaches are a parade of has beens. Besides Spurrier there is Rick Neuheisel, Mike Singletary, Dennis Erickson, Mike Riley ( fresh off his star turn at Nebraska) and Mike Martz. 

Lotta Mike's there. They should have gone all out for Mike Leach. He would have generated a bunch of interest. 

02/07/2019 - 4:26pm The Orioles stole him from…

The Orioles stole him from the Reds. For Milt Pappas. 

02/07/2019 - 1:34pm I thought Irkutsk.

I thought Irkutsk.

02/07/2019 - 8:53am More likely the…

More likely the superintendent is afraid of getting sued.

02/07/2019 - 8:49am Shattering records? You mean…

Shattering records? You mean for a specific date, right? What about other dates, like January what ever it was back in 2007 when it was -18? Or the San Diego Cincinnati playoff game in 81 when the wind chill was -40? And they played the game! In front of a large crowd. Who managed to drive there. 

Sorry. There have always been incidences of extreme weather. 

02/07/2019 - 8:39am It's that poorly managed.

It's that poorly managed.

02/06/2019 - 2:44pm Ever wonder if Belichick…

Ever wonder if Belichick worried about getting buy in? He walked in, said we're doing it my way, and then did it his way. If you didn't like it tough shit. And if you want just one reason the Lions have sucked forever is your comment "Too many other people in the Lions organization don't have a vested interest in that."

02/06/2019 - 2:32pm Well, if fielding the best…

Well, if fielding the best roster is a negative then Jackson, with Jordan and Bryant, must be ruled out immediately. I posit that basketball is the most easily effected by the presence of transcendent talent. LeBron, Jordan and Kobe, with a decent supporting cast, wind up in the finals almost all the time. Football and Futbol are, IMHO, highly dependent on a vision, a plan and the assembly of an entire roster consistent with the plan. So what I am saying is that a pro basketball coach lucky enough to have a LeBron or Jordan will, unless he is a complete idiot or egomaniac, achieve fantastic results. And when LeBron and Jordan leave, the gravy train goes with them.

02/06/2019 - 1:47pm That's the same Bill Lynch…

That's the same Bill Lynch who coached at Indiana. He is a six foot walking column of mediocre.

02/06/2019 - 1:42pm Thon went to the same High…

Thon went to the same High School as Iggy. That's all I need to know.

02/06/2019 - 1:35pm Guys like Belichick (or Nick…

Guys like Belichick (or Nick Saban) seem to make the coaches around them perform better than the actually are (ahem...Matt Patricia). Belichick  is the greatest NFL coach of all time. Perhaps the greatest professional sports coach of all time (maybe Scotty Bowman and Alex Furguson are in the conversation). For an assistant to be successful at New England he needs to be technically proficient, work hard and follow the plan

Maybe that's why Belichick's assistants have a hard time on their own.

02/06/2019 - 10:01am Did he walk to San Diego?

Did he walk to San Diego?

02/05/2019 - 10:16pm And how about the game…

And how about the game played by the Big Ten Player of the Year...Cassius Winston.

02/05/2019 - 8:37am Good fudge too.

Good fudge too.

02/04/2019 - 9:02am Any day now they are going…

Any day now they are going start booing pastors on Sunday mornings.

02/01/2019 - 2:41pm I do bypass these things…

I do bypass these things. But I check out every message board post for its entertainment value. 

02/01/2019 - 2:01pm All these " bracketologists"…

All these " bracketologists" have a great gig going. They get paid to throw shit against the wall and call it scientific. If possible these are worse than NFL mock drafts.

01/31/2019 - 4:21pm It really must suck to be a…

It really must suck to be a Knicks fan. They remind me of Vinny's Cadillac stuck in the mud in My Cousin Vinny.

01/31/2019 - 3:24pm Scallywags. Yes. And…

Scallywags. Yes. And reprobates as well. Such roguish scoundrels.

01/31/2019 - 3:19pm I don't believe anyone threw…

I don't believe anyone threw a bag of urine at Ms. Wesson. I suppose that practice is limited to Columbus. 

01/31/2019 - 3:15pm Oh yeah. And the non-athlete…

Oh yeah. And the non-athlete students taking these classes are paying for it. This is FRAUD. Who fucking cares about the NCAA. They're not around to protect the average student. But the University supposedly is. This whole edifice needs to come down. 

White: "The Night Owl made you. You want to tear all that down?"
Exley: "With a wrecking ball. You want to help me swing it?"

01/31/2019 - 3:04pm Assuming the OP's facts are…

Assuming the OP's facts are correct, this is a textbook example of arbitrary and capricious enforcement of rules. I get that the NCAA is a private organization but it is impossible to operate a major college athletic operation without them. So, if I were Missouri (and in this case boy do I wish I were) I would slap a huge lawsuit on the NCAA for operating a cartel.

01/30/2019 - 11:16pm Wait! What??? Is she talking…

Wait! What??? Is she talking about a Crisler crowd? You mean the place where the fans who actually show up sit politely while enjoying white wine and brie? What kind of alternative reality is this?

 

01/30/2019 - 11:06pm The Trey Burke team was…

The Trey Burke team was loaded with NBA talent. The current class is not. Speaks to Beilein's adaptability. 

01/30/2019 - 11:02pm That's next year's…

That's next year's improvement. Imagine. Get Teske the ball on the low block. He can kick it back out for a three (Iggy in the corner?), back the defender down or be Kareem above. If Poole and Iggy are still around an offense running through Teske could be lethal.

01/30/2019 - 5:01pm They're still getting the…

They're still getting the money. And will continue to because there is a huge campus full of students who did nothing wrong and rely on the money. Placing them in the middle would be a nightmare. For the students, MSU, and the feds. Ain't. Gonna. Happen.

What should happen is LuAnna Simon and Mark Hollis go to jail. And not just for a few months. I'm still pissed that nobody went to jail over the housing crisis. I'm so fed up with people in charge skating and leaving destruction in their wake while they navigate their golden parachute to a soft landing.

01/30/2019 - 4:48pm But he decided to go to Ohio…

But he decided to go to Ohio in the first place. Seems like a decent kid who mistakenly bought the typical OSU bullshit.

01/30/2019 - 2:50pm I'm not sure the coaches had…

I'm not sure the coaches had much to do with developing that shot. I think Z and his dad worked on it this summer and Simpson showed up with it when practice started. Credit to Beilein for going with it. So damn many coaches act like if they didn't have the idea then the idea is no good.

01/30/2019 - 2:36pm Guess so. Cause if his feet…

Guess so. Cause if his feet were like hands he'd be playing Futbol.

01/29/2019 - 6:04pm Yeah. Instead just build a…

Yeah. Instead just build a campfire in your living room. That'll work.

01/29/2019 - 5:01pm You have a cabinet? Seem to…

You have a cabinet? Seem to me you just have a Board of Flunkies. You keep them out in the cold, right?

01/28/2019 - 9:52am Just business?…

Just business? Sheeeeeeeeeeeit.

01/28/2019 - 12:09am Unlike you, String…

Unlike you, String. Hopefully Mike Hart has stayed on the right side of Omar Little and Brother Mauzone.

How many rubles is that?

Watching the Pistons? Egad. Get a life my friend.

As for the drinking...Sazerac straight from the bottle. Like my idol Jim Brockmire.

01/25/2019 - 9:07pm You're confusing John U…

You're confusing John U. with Craig Ross.

Luke...I am your father...

The rich will always be among us. 

01/24/2019 - 10:22am NFL draft supposed to insure…

NFL draft supposed to insure parity? Explain the Detroit Lions. I guess superior management matters. Say what you will about Robert Kraft but he employs two GOATS. Two!! At the same time!!

01/23/2019 - 4:28pm He has already killed…

He has already killed someone and he is still there.

Edit...sorry man. Did not see the word else. I guess I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.

01/23/2019 - 11:46am Because Michigan would…

Because Michigan would prefer he leave. And whatever the new team pays him would be a reduction of what Michigan owes Pep. So, Pep is gone and Michigan has part of its two year obligation handled by someone else.

01/23/2019 - 11:17am Sadly it is so. But maybe…

Sadly it is so. But maybe that's why the winningest college football program in history has been stuck in the mud for 10-12 years.
