Michigan *is* the Big Ten. Ridiculous post OP.
No. No. No. To go WHERE? This idea is asinine.
To the SEC. Duh. We're a perfect academic and cultural fit, and I want some of that SECSPEED.
Zoltan has cleared the way with ambassadors of another galaxy for Michigan to join the Intergalactic West Conference (IWC) in 2046.
I think Michigan should leave the Big Ten and go to the Big XII. I think the future lies of college athletics lies with the Big XII. :)
Well, tomorrow don't we really become the Big 12 and the Big 12 becomes the Big 10?
I think Michigan should join NFL Europe.
There should be a filter to post a new topic.
requirements/standards were more difficult than Michigan Admissions
strangely only posts by The Knowledge and diaries regarding it all being about Denard got through
there is, and b/c he's been nebanged, he won't be able to post a new one until he regains some points.
Simple answer . . . No. There's no evidece we will have a hard time competing. We've had a tough two years with a new offense and lack of depth. If we go 9-3 this year, we'll all talking how Nebraska and A&M don't want to play us. (TX a different story).
is completely insane, irrational, and illogical.
Either you are incredibly stupid, or you veiled your sarcasm so well it came off as stupid.
Hell yeah lets crash the Mountain West and get us some Maize turf. Seriously though we are the fucking Big Ten and don't ever forget it.
Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter
but I believe he is needed here.
this is a riot! Seriously though? Leave a conference that we have the best record in NCAA history in? Not to mention 42 conference titles and over all wins? ARE YOU KIDDING?
Dumbest post ever. Its not like there going after teams that have the same academic standards as the SEC. Michigan is the Big Ten.
We may have a legitimate winner for next season's MGoAwards for the Most Ridiculously Devoid Of Intellect That Actually Has The Power To Kill Brain Cells Post Ever.
Congrats man! You deserve it!!
This post should definitely be deleted.
where's the picture of "implied facepalm"?
I thought this was going to be a joke. Now I'm just mad.
this is exactly what I thought.
If the OP is serious? Well, I know from whom I'm buying my pot.
Wow. This is the single dumbest thing I have ever read on this site. And there have been a lot of dumb posts.
Let's leave what could be the best sporting conference in all of college sports. Let's throw away the money they reel in every year due to being a part of this conference.
Are you drunk? High? Both?
In the words of Black Doug from "The Hangover" "You are fuc*n retawded"
That is, without a doubt, the most spectacularly ill-conceived idea I have ever seen presented on this forum. I am almost "not mad but impressed" like with Baxter and the wheel of cheese. I can't believe you were able to write something, on a day when so many crazy ideas are already flying around, that could make my jaw drop and make me start giggling like a 12 year old girl. But you did it.
This same argument was used on Thomas Jefferson. That's why he moved to France for awhile. And then he caught syphilis.*
Do you want Michigan to get a VD?
*All facts stated are true-ish.
You like the state of Michigan football and basketball right now? I sure in the heck don't.
Yes, we suck at sports because of the Big10. Yup. That is it.

I like the idea, way to think outside the box, this idea is meritlicious.
What you just said is the most insanely idiotic thing I have ever heard. At no point in you incoherent, rambling response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. We are all now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
Huffing diesel fuel is a helluva drug.
Puff. Puff. Give.
You're holding it too long, damn it!
You're kidding, right?
(Psst - if you are serious don't admit it and go away!)
I like the Big 10.
i love this sketch so much, it hurts that i have but one +1 to give you. my old firm once did a deal w/ the venture capitalist who says "this maybe the worst idea i've ever heard." they refused to let me ask him about the sketch. with good reason and all, but still.
God, that clip is hilarious. Hoverboard, FTW.
Guano? nuff said
what they said^^
Donavon Warren left, Manny said bye bye, Izzo is half out the door, it is the trendy thing to do. O LET DO IT!!!
now that hurts.
... if President Coleman stops by your house first and beats you with a stick for putting up this post.
Everyone thinks we should leave.
I wish i could neg you more than once per post.
Instead of even contemplating this, why haven't enough "powerful" people condemned the freep press for screwing up our secondary by having to go all pitchfork/torch on Dorsey? The freep continuosly screws things up for us!
Should the Patriots also leave the NFL for the CFL?
I think your onto something here. With close proximity in geography, it only makes sense that Michigan join the MAC. That would make for a lot of high-quality games. Good call.
Holy Toledo...the line of sarcasm has been drawn...I'm trying to laugh.........still trying......oh well.
I was really hoping this was a sarcastic thread but instead it turned out to be the dumbest thing I have ever read.
Dumbest thing you've ever read?
Are we reading the same Internet?
There's nothing wrong with asking, from time to time, "what does the Big Ten really do for us?"
The answer is a shit ton of research money, the best rivalry in sports which the conference protects jealously, invitations to big-time bowl games, a tough annual schedule against teams of like academics from relatively nearby, a basic cable network that we essentially dominate, and a fantastic conference for all of our sports.
My vote is to stay.
FAIL... everywhere on the internets

i believe the OP's answer has been found.
