Football Display Case
national champs baby
Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.
first comment: "EVERY ATHLETE HAS ASPIRATIONS OF WINNING AND WE HAVE OUR FAVORITES BUT IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO OTHER STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS, TOO!"
stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Webber cheated, made it "cool" for others to take Ed Martin's money, put the basketball program into the dumper for ten years, and never admitted that he did anything wrong. He certainly isn't much of a "character witness" for a supporting argument.
I don't care what he "agrees with," but I do care that nobody like him ever wears a Michigan uniform.
...Hence the joke.
There needs to be a moderation option called "Whoosh"
"Crickets" and "Your Opinion Is Bad And You Should Feel Bad"
They no longer call me Bisbiño
fucking deep breath.
...but I still can't fathom why any undergrad student would need (or even want) a car. More trouble than it's worth and everything you could want is within walking distance of campus.
Unless you live on North. Not to mention it makes getting home easier.
Bursley.....the horror, the horror
What if said undergraduate has a job, or wants to go to Meijer/Costco for groceries and household supplies, or wants to go to a movie...just brain storming here.
...due to some Brewster's Million's type scenario, needs to spend $10K in one semester on parking tickets.
As a matter of fact I like beer.

I had a car for two years and a motorcycle for senior year. Main reasons:
1. Grocery shopping
2. Ease of moving in/out without parental assistance. Didn't want to make them drive 20 hours round trip just to drop me off at school.
3. Driving to/from North Campus
4. The glory of motorcycle parking in Ann Arbor
5. Day/weekend trips for away games, skiing, etc
6. My family had the awful habit of getting into minor accidents with my car when I left it home freshman year
7. Because the joy of driving, cotdammit!
The world looks better through maize mirror tint.
Still waiting on backup.
Nice headline here, ESPN. "Denard Robinson Files Guilty Plea."
Guess it was more head turning than "Denard Robinson Resolves Minor Traffic Violation."
Not that Rothstein wrote the headline, but this is as good as spot as any to point out that I have never liked Rothstein all that much.
Looks like it has been changed to "Michigan's Robinson cited for suspended license".
anything that will make headlines these days.....
It's been a lot. Its been a roller coaster that for some reason seemed like it would never get good. But you know what? We kept fighting. It's like that old saying goes, "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions." -David Molk
All of this bad news surrounding our football program lately. How about some good news for a change? Reading Hello: posts are so much better than this.....
Now if he had been at Ohio, this would never have been a problem. I'm sure the dealer plates on his luxury sport car would have been up to date.
"2001 Pontiac" -- well it's encouraging to know that we are most definitely less corrupt than most programs if our starting quarterback drives at 2001 Pontiac. Even walk-ons wouldn't be allowed to drive that shit at The U
"I just hope Tressel doesn't fire me"
Hey! A believable car for a young man of modest financial means! Scandal averted!
So apparently it's a crime to operate a vehicle the same way they do on The Flintstones?
Someone better turn this shit around because its getting ridiculous that this program is having this amount of trouble floating around. Leaders can't even set an example, for fuck sakes.
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you.
Denard drives an 11-year-old Pontiac as a senior. I drove an 11-year-old Pontiac as a senior.
I was Denard.
I AM Denard!
At least we know he isn't getting free cars like Pryor and Reggie Bush driving a 2001 Pontiac.
bowl game needs to be here soon, tired of this off the field non-sense.
Finish the season, finish school and stay out of trouble.
As far as expired tags go, if you go to school in a state (MI) different from where the car is registered (maybe FL), it's difficult to renew them by mail. By difficult I mean you get maybe one notice (at the registered address) and then have to do it a certain amount of time before they expire or you have to do it in person, which is obviously difficult 1500 miles away. So, that's easily excusable. Not showing up for court, however, is strange. Come on, Denard.
and it is. What ever happened to the high standards we expect? Navare, Henne, Brady, Henson, and Griese never got into any sort of trouble and led by example, Denard should be doing the same.
"Only three things can happen when you pass, and two of them are bad" -Bo Schembechler
Griese was suspended from the team in his early years for throwing a bar stool through a window.
"You're fat and you're mine". Bo to Dan Dierdorf.
good for Griese, don't think he was the starter when that happened though...
If you didn't know that Griese had to earn his way back on the team for being charged with a felony (barstool through the window) after he, in fact, had already started at QB and pooch punter for parts of 2 seasons and was THE current starting QB at the time of the incident then I don't find you at all credible to assess Denard's behavior vs prior M QBs.
1. You ever talk to anyone who was on campus when Henson was around?
2. Brian Griese, brick, window of Scorekeepers. 1996.
Bottom line: These are college kids, not saints. But college kids should know to pay their license tags, use their turn signals, and show up for court dates.
Glad this isn't serious legal trouble, but Denard was really pushing his luck if that tag expired on September 22nd. I could maybe understand letting the end of the month come around, but waiting months after that seems too risky. Anyway, I blame that terrible Grand Am.
"He played the trombone. Did you know he played the trombone? That's a tough one to picture." --Kovacs, on Denard "Shoelace" Robinson
I wonder if he will be suspended for the bowl game? The best player on my high school basketball team was suspended for eating a bag of chips in class. He was a senior too!
You do not drive with a suspended license period! Their was no excuse for this. It was a bad decision. He seems to be getting a pass from most of the comments on here.
It's a little harder to get your car inspected and go to the DMV in Florida from Ann Arbor. He's paid the fine and this is now a nom-issue.
Well, I hope one of the other football players was driving him to the Pistons game last night.
From USA Today:
Several members of the University of Michigan football team attended the game, including team captains Denard Robinson and Jordan Kovacs.
Michigan Resurgent? Michigan Resurgent!
The beatings will continue until the uniforms improve!
Tags up to date, license unsuspended. He is good to go. now!
