"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."
If you say their name 3 times they show up with something bad about us. We need a code name for them like the crap rockets or something so they go away.
In case we forget.
Rosenberg went on the Huge Show before this article was written and said that he wanted Rod fired.
Rosenberg is then allowed to do his 1st piece of investigative journalism, which is written in a dishonest way.
Rosenberg refuses to answer any of the serious questions about the lack of ethics in his article. Rosenberg on another appearance on the Huge Show said he "forgot how many players were still on the team" that he interviewed for the article and couldn't take a guess. Leaving us to believe that the only players were the 2 freshman that he ambushed and took out of context.
The guy has went out of his way to dishonestly attack his alma mater and the football program turning a mole hill into a mountain through dishonesty.
How could the Freep let a sports writer do his 1st investigative journalist piece after saying he wanted the subject of that investigative piece fired beforehand?
Did he really go on the show and literally say he wanted him fired? Wouldn't surprise me - just hadn't heard that until now.
Yes, before the article Rosenberg went on the Huge Show and said that he thought coach Rod should be replaced.
After the article came out he went back on the Huge show to defend the article and Huge brought the above up. Rosenberg admitted that it probably was a conflict of interest for him to have written the article after stating that Rod should be fired beforehand.
Thanks, I had never heard that. Nice of him to admit that it "probably" was a conflict of interest.
things to be angar about in this world. the freep doesn't even make my list.
but i am so glad people are pointing out every single percieved transgression against the totally humble and altruistic U of M.
I also don't have a problem with large corporate media outlets deliberately distorting reality and unfairly attacking individuals to further an agenda or increase subscriptions - inside and outside of the sports pages
To hell with the Freep
and see a post or comment that mentions or links to it, ignore it. Simple.
else just not give a damn anymore? I've been beaten over the head with so much superfluous negativity over the past 2+ years, starting with the whole buyout fiasco, that I've completely given up paying attention to any Michigan coverage that isn't on here or on WTKA's morning show. If the team does well this year, I'll be happy, if they do poorly, I'll be disappointed, but I'm done letting anyone in the media affect my mood.
Not only is the media coverage getting old but hearing from other fan bases is as well. I understand that is the name of the game by taking shots at a down program right now but I'm over it.
I can't wait to we start wining again because in the past I just held my head up high but my smack talking is going to come out in full force soon.
But since we have Freep bashing here, on their mobile site, the headline for the an article is:
"Expansion won't harm MSU-OSU Rivalry". Thinking they heard something that MSU wouldn't not be separated from OSU, but wondering how it could even be a "rivalry", the actual article says "Big Ten Expansion won't dampen Michigan-Ohio State Rivalry". And it's still up there that way. Somehow, their slant is even having them make freudian slips.
They're anti-Michigan, so of course they're going to lie and make up stories that discredit a storied program. That's exactly what a Sparty would do. So my question is: why is everyone so shocked when they write this stuff?
