"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Our plane is headed to Baton Rouge
TV-feed announcement with DB and Les at halftime of the basketball game?
I didn't see the question mark at the end at first.
Need to slow down and read closer.
I tell you, that friggin' airplane has really become one of the most famous figures associated with the program at this point.
Might also be the only thing faster than Denard sporting the wings on the helmet
In a last ditch effort to keep Les Miles from leaving LSU, Tiger fans jacked the wheels from the UM plane.
At least Michigan Men are smart enough to use The Club, or the we would have a hijackin' on our hands.
in the past month:
(from Michigan Against The World, circa 2007)
I think that what you just said would be deemed more offensive
but not wrong.
Glen Mason's Hot Wife is an ignorant hack who never contributed a thing to society, But since I don't know you, that would be entirely ignorant of me. And possibly wrong. Learn a bit about the principles of logic, fairness and maturity and perhaps that will sink in someday.
If you want to tell others to "learn a bit about the principles of logic," you shouldn't be defending religion. Logic embraces everything religion does not: critical thinking, reason, etc. Religion merely asks people to believe what they're told, regardless of the lack of evidence or proof (and, for the record, a book written over a thousand years ago is neither evidence nor proof).
is full of fun, like a cat playing with a ball of yarn. You being the yarn and people over the centuries being the cat.
Logic embraces everything anti-religionists do not: critical thinking, reason, etc. Anti-Religionists merely ask people to believe what they're told, regardless of the lack of evidence or proof (and, for the record, a guy disparaging book written over thousands of years ago is neither evidence nor proof).
(Just to help you out: It's "books" and it spans more than 2K years and has multiple authors;)
We have bigger things to freak out about than religion. WE DON'T HAVE A COACH.
I think that was the point
phony carnival preacher there is. And lower IQ than on their worst day. Congrats.
responses. My comments above were entirely respectful without being either emotional or being denigrating to any group. Yet those above feel confident calling EVERY person in one particular group "batshit crazy", and when someone points out how incorrect that would be as applied to ANY group, the replies are about getting mad and being even more emotional and sensitive. The lack of self awareness and ignorance inherent in the argument is staggering. I haven't been to a church or religious gathering of any kind in years, but I do know immature uncritical adherence to a school of thought when I read it. A pity you don't.
I find it interesting that athiests think they have a corner on knowledge and widom when their minds and hearts are utterly closed. Like yours.
That you don't have the decency to keep your ridiculous, offensive and prejudiced views to yourself, but rather feel the need to express them in an outrageous way, knowing it would offend people, suggests a pathology on your part.
I have generally liked your posts until now. But from now on, I'll keep these posts in mind when reading whatever else you write.
It is abundantly clear that he was simply trolling for responses via his posts, and you took the bait. He wins.
I expected that you would come to the troll's defense.
And yet, you would deny being a religious bigot!
So much for that.
Now who wins?
You make a good point about people being religious bigots. That is certainly one way to troll, and it is in fact the way that this particular troll is inciting people on the board.
I for one love your strategy of confronting the troll about his or her attacks, and attempting to show him/her the faultiness of his/her reasoning.
I personally would have ignored the troll, rather than becomming offended by his/her's clearly vitrolic and over the top rhetoric (which was no doubt nothing more than the troll attempting to get a rise out of posters, and thusly, the troll crying for attention).
However, I trust that through your continued engagement with the troll, you will no doubt change his/her's mind, ways, and convert him/her into a productive member of the board.
Good luck in your endeavour, and I have full confidence in your success.
I recognize at least some of your sarcasm (the part about changing minds). Assuming the rest is sincere I'm going to do something that I would not have expected to do.
This is a Michigan sports message board. Go be an asshole somewhere else.
I don't have to prove anything, least of all to you. Atheists believe they know there is no God. They cannot prove it, yet they believe it. So much for demanding evidence.
If all you believe is what can be proven you cannot be an atheist. Also, you must not know very much at all, because what has been "proven" is only a tiny fraction of what is. Also, your beliefs must change all the time, because what is "proven" is often disproven. So, one day you believe this, one day you believe that, the next day you believe something completely contrary.
Religious people often struggle with their faith. This is true because they are always seeking the truth.
Atheists do not so struggle, because they think they know it all. The hatred in your voice belies rationality. Your proposed ethic of mocking religiousity is arrogant in the extreme. And your analogy is childish.
Proselytize your hatred of God somewhere else.
Hate of god? lol Unreasonable as usual. Anyway who's going to coach this team? Trying to get it back on topic :)
If you read "marlon"'s post: "marlon" not only hates God, "marlon" hates the very idea of God.
To get back on topic: Jon Gruden. Ithink that they are going to try to hit a "home run" to save the Michigan brand.
BTW, you really think I'm unreasonable?
Not you personally, my man. Actually probably not you at all. I usually find many religious people are unreasonable. Well, people of varying faiths can be unreasonable.
I think Gruden would be great as well. I just hope we dont have to settle for what's left.
All true faith is blind, if something can be seen/proven then its just plain fact, and what power does that have? what would make that special?
Careful now. Non-Religous-types are batshit crazy and we have more that our share on this board. You don't want to offend those crazy fuckers now, do you?
They'll get over that and come to reality sooner or later.
You don't know who's religious on this site and who isn't. To each his own, being respectful is fun, kids!
I'd like to make a motion that this whole sub-thread be expunged from the record.
I'm with you. This wasn't meant to be a religious debate--just a timely photoshop that was floating around on the internet.
Who knew Brian actually had to institute a "no religion" rule as well.
Also, everyone knows that God = Les Miles. Worship him now or rue your petulance for eternity.
This (coaching search and F5) is taking enough time from my real 'religion'. I'm waiting for the First Testament of MGoBlog.
... for that white smoke to begin rising from the Schembechler Hall chimney.
Tomorrow night. Halftime. Huge audience. Brandon equals branding.
I thought the plane belonged to Rogul, a wealthy Michigan Alum and strong supporter of the University of Michigan. He certainly could have let the University use it for the purposes of interviewing potential HC candidates, but he could also be going for a good cajun dinner.
Holy balls!! I would say this is getting surreal, but we're waaaaay beyond that already.
What was the plane doing in Savannah/Hilton Head beforehand???
The theory was they were clearing the hire with Carr who winters in Hilton Head
Wow, it's raining a lot in Baton Rouge...
I work about 45 minutes away from Baton Rouge and the weather is nasty!
MGoPlane... take me with you!
Since you're in the vicinity, please go to the airport, track down whoever got off that plane, where they went, who they're meeting with, and report back. STAT!
You want me to pick up any local delicacies? Turkey neck gumbo? I could bring a whole spread to welcome Les.
If we present Les with a fragel, a chipati, a bibimbop from the now defunct Steve's Lunch, a Georgia Reuben from Zingerman's, some Cottage Inn pizza, and a lifetime supply of free breakfasts at Angelo's, he's in.
anmd they say we can't offer the kinds of perks an NFL owner can offer.
