    "I'm trying to protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated" - President Joe Biden, 09-09-21

    Comment


    • Someone on facebook had posted this interesting article from Joe Nocera of the ny times regarding the double standards of the ncaa and how it can effect people. Not sure if I put this in the right thread.

      • good post/right thread, Big Geo

        The NCAA is indeed a screwed-up organization

        Best thing that could happen, assuming we're forever stuck with the NCAA, would be to completely tear up the entire rule book, simplify it to make it more understandable and consistant, while somehow making it possible to go after the roots of problems rather than band-aid solutions that do little or nothing to prevent violations.

        Only when crooked agents are kicked out and cheating coaches get life-time bans rather than laughably short and conveniently delayed suspensions only to return to "sin" again and again, will any progress be made to clean things up.

        Oh----did I forget someone? Yeah, that's right----A.D.'s and others at the upper levels of administration also should face the threat of long-term "excommunication" for major violations. As long as anyone at any level of the chain of command appears to be above the rules, to be out of reach of meaningful consequences, cheating will continue to get worse.

        • I posted this in the joke thread, thought you might get a laugh.

          A U of M fan, an Ohio State fan and a MSU fan are climbing a mountain, arguing about who loves his team more. The MSU fan insists he is the most loyal. "This is for MSU" he yells, and jumps off the mountain. Not to be outdone, the U of M fan is next to profess his love for his team. He yells, "This is for the University of Michigan......!" and pushes the Ohio State fan off the mountain.

              • Well, the Worldcrossing site is now officially part of the cyber graveyard. Its no longer accessible. We opened there back in June of 2001. Before that, many of us posted at the Detroit Free Press sports site. The Freep closed that down right after we migrated to the WX site.

                I hope everyone got the word as to where we went. I really miss a lot of the guys that we haven't seen in a while.

                • RIP, World Crossing! I was leery of swithcing at first, but we've found a great home!

                  After learning the tricks, this site has very user friendly, I've found.

                  Well done, all who made the transition possible!

                  • Goodbye, world crossing. I fear that our little group here might be dying off. Each year, it seems like we lose one or two more people.

                      I actually miss the little piss-ant and his repartee.

                      There is such a thing as redemption. Maybe we're seeing one. Don't fuck it up Jim.

                          For a second year in a row, Canada has been ranked the friendliest country in the world, according to a survey conducted by HSBC.
                          Expatriates in over 100 countries were asked to rate their host country in various categories. Forbes then looked at the results of four categories to determine which places were the friendliest: ability to befriend locals, success in learning the local language, capacity for integrating into the community and ease of fitting into the new culture.
                          Here’s the full list:

                            • I am looking for a UM tee shirt(s) that is plain but has a small block M where a small pocket might be (don't care if it has a pocket or not just a small block M)... something like the golf shirt but in a tee shirt. Thought I saw some years ago that also had a blue contrast around the neckband and end of the sleeves. Anyone see something similar in their travels. I seemed to have visited most of the websites but without luck. Hoping I missed one.
