I like this a lot. I don't think Michigan is assured a win over either Indiana or Illinois and if that happens, look out. Sometimes though I prefer an early exit from a conference tourney so you can get some rest, plus what are the chances of winning a conference tourney and then the NCAA tourney? I know UConn did it and it can be done, but I like to get the rest and a loss always wakes a team up a little bit.
Better budget a few million for a good doctor or some plastic wrap
Here's a cool site I found to calculate out scenarios: http://bball.notnothing.net/big10.php?sport=mbb
Great post. Excellent effort into relevant information. Thanks for posting.
YES! Thank you. People, listen up: What the students already get, what the schools currently make/spend, etc. forget about that for a second and realize what the NCAA is making. Why? Why should Mark Emmert get anything? Why does the Cotton Bowl have guys in jackets that sell the game to the schools? What value do they provide to the equation? Rules, trophies and sanctions. Do you think they are good and should stay the same? If so, then I can't win an argument against you; it's fighting a war against an unarmed man.
That was 04 or 05 I think. Which is now 10 years ago so there's that to make me feel old today.
JK, you big stud.
Pics or it didn't happen...
If I'm not mistaken (I just Googled, it cuz this is the internet and I'm not that lazy), he went to Purdue actually. But I've been to his house, nice guy.
Well, that's a slippery slope/fine line kind of thing. So if I can sell my stuff, is my name and likeness included? Thus, can I sign up with EA to be a part of a game sold to millions? Can I get sponsors? Meaning I wear only Nike stuff when the rest of the team is sponsored by Adidas and thus eventually Adidas might stop sponsoring my team if enough players are individually sponsored and costing the school/team millions. Can I appear in advertisements?
I've done that on mobile, don't want to do that on my work PC (first world problems, I know) but it would be nice to just anytime I get on 11w from anywhere, it would be there.
I really have a hard time finding a link to this thing every time I want to view it, if you guys are hell bent on this secretive, premium lounge thing, can we hide the link in like the copyright info down at the bottom of the page or something, I just would to see it linked on the front page when I open the site.
I think MSU, if they can get everyone healthy and on the same page by the tourney, has the pieces to be the champs, but those are all big IFs. Michigan also is built for a tourney run as they can score points inside and outside. Iowa, Wisconsin and Ohio State will probably all not make it to the second weekend and if any one does, they'll lose the first game.
I think the B1G will do better in the tourney this year more so than any other year because of the new rules changes and their application so far. Usually the B1G guys get lots of fouls, go into shock and have to change their defense up or foul out real quick and it's frustrating. This year that should be mitigated a bit and I think the B1G schools don't have to adapt as much and will fair better. We'll see.
I've heard everyone say 0 to 1 is a hard adjustment, 1 to 2 isn't as big, but 2 to 3 is bigger than 0 to 1 just because they out number the number of hands you have to hold them, etc. We stopped at 2 as my wife and I agreed we didn't want to be outnumbered.
My son just turned 6 months as well. It doesn't seem like it's been that long. Time flies.
I forget mine being this tiny and my son is only 6 months old. It goes so quickly and they grow so fast. I bet my son has doubled in size in the last month or two. Cherish it, enjoy them when they are like this.
Big decision right now is what to get her for the bday present, right? We got my daughter a fish tank and what a great idea that was. We put it in her bedroom up on her dresser where she can see it but not reach it. She loves going to her room for naptime/bedtime now because she can see the fishies.
I enjoy the clothes shopping to an extent right now too. I love to spoil her in any and every way right now. Walking by the section of Kohl's where they sell the thong underwear for 10yr olds already has me not looking forward to the not too distant future.
I'm not sure the logistics of fast food grade chorizo, but if Chiptole can do it, I'm sure Taco Bell could do it. Must not be cost effect enough for them. But I'd love it too, trust me. Thing about Taco Bell is, if you have an item at Taco Bell, you have to make it available for all the things you make. If they had chorizo, they'd have to have chorizo chalupas, gorditas, soft/hard tacos, etc. etc. Everyone orders special orders and combinations at TB
I'm thinking the Taco Bell breakfast is gonna hinge on the quality of the hash browns and the sausage. Bacon, even fake, is still good. Taco Bell beef is terrible in a way that makes it delicious. Not sure if it's the seasoning or the other flavors/toppings masking it out or the expectations or what, but beef at TBell is perfect for what it is. If the sausage and hash browns are bad, the crunch wrap is gonna be bad, the burrito is gonna be bad. The waffle taco might be good even with bad sausage. The eggs, I already know what they will taste like, they will be fast food eggs and I'm fine with that in this context.
Took my daughter til 14 months to sleep through the night. My son is 6 months and he's been sleeping through since probably a month or two. Getting a full night's sleep makes all the difference in the world. I thought pulling all-nighters for college and law school would have me prepared for kids, but one off night here and there is different from months of prolonged sleep deprivation.
I would hand my candy over to your kids if I were a kid and saw them like this. It's remarkable. Props for sure. You're doing the world a favor raising the next generation right.
I'm a neat freak and the clean house was a big adjustment for me. I try to ignore a lot more than I used to, but occasionally I break down and start scrubbing splattered food off our walls, etc. Sometimes it calms me to clean a room or area. My daughter already tries to help out with small chores and I can't wait to put her to work folding laundry, vacuuming, etc. I'll do the same with my son, but he's farther off.
