Punch our tourney ticket today!
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks||
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I get your point||
I get your point and it's well said. I certainly won't downvote you or question your right to exist. I personally have always appreciated your posts buckeyejonross.
To be fair though, this post is about a recruit who we've been following and has visited Michigan. It is not about that school down south. The recruit who this thread is about just happened to commit there.
I guess I'd equate osufancomesinpeace's post to a guy telling me all the reasons he's dating my ex. I'm really not interested.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Well played||
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Nice!||
You're right. It looks amazing with the blue background.
|11 weeks 6 hours ago||Not making a post to correct||
I am not posting this to correct your english. I normally don't care and would never downvote someone for a mistake or make fun of them. That's just not me. However, you did ask. So I'll help:
"Their scared too."
The use of too in this case implies something along the lines of "as well" or "in addition." This doesn't fit in the context of your reply since no adjective was applied to the subject coaches. Instead, context would imply you are trying to say:
"They are scared to (context: join the war)." That is why Jason said you got two out of three wrong. As you mentioned he didn't even use punctuation in the post where he corrected you. I believe that's why he was negged.
Have a wonderful President's Day!

There is nothing wrong with the above post!

Was that before or after you posted this?
|14 weeks 10 hours ago||You sir||

Minus the profession, to me he was the exact same personality. He's been pretty much the same playboy in all of his roles except Return to Me and his hand modeling role in Zooland.

Best line of the entire article: "Who voluntarily roots for the Cubs."
I love it! Well done.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||There is nothing wrong||
With posting that multiple times.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||:-)||
Made my day!
|14 weeks 4 days ago||I think you||
I think you are making some assumptions here. I don't know what exactly is transpiring behind the scenes and what was communicated to any of the kids when the offers were handed out.
As long as Coach and staff are being honest with the kids when the offer goes out and as long as they continue that honesty throughout the entire recruiting process, then why wouldn't we be OK with it? That might not be the case and I'm not going to assume it is, but what do we really know about what's happening?
A lot of kids have lost scholarship offers in the past for a multitude of reasons. On-field, off-field, academic, personal, or medical situations all come to mind. Why should we assume these kids who recently decommitted don't have a part in the decision making process?
|14 weeks 4 days ago||I wish...||
I wish I had a nickel for every time I read a post like this in January or the first two weeks of February. :-)
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Dupe||
Dupe me once...
|14 weeks 4 days ago||I wouldn't panic or make assumptions||
I wouldn't panic or make assumptions. We have been hearing for weeks that attrition was expected from among the current commits.

I like the comedy.

I want to see Rashan Gary holding a sign that reads:
"I'm committed to the University of Michigan. Beat State! HARBAUGHGHGH"

I almost spit soda all over my monitor. Very funny. Like TBS.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||You miss the point.||
I dissagree that our second most important rival is MSU. They've never been top two.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||Huh?||
We only have one win over Notre Dame since 2008? Am I missing something? I thought we were 4-2...

Here's a little Wikipedia for you:
"While the selection process starts before the seeding process, the two often overlap; with conference tournaments not finishing until Selection Sunday itself, and only one hour between the end of the last game (usually the Big Ten Tournament championship game) before the brackets are officially unveiled, the committee cannot wait until after all the games are played to start determining the seeds. While nothing is set in stone until after all the games are played and the brackets are established, the committee may have a good idea.."
Now, if you are arguing the game is so late they MIGHT NOT consider it, that's different than the game is so late THEY CAN'T consider it. They may decide that Michigan is a #1 win or lose since the game is so late, but they likely won't.
If the game goes to quadruple overtime, and say Northwestern was in the championship game, they would officially have to wait to make their selection final regardless of the show's airing time.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Academic Standards||
Taking the competitive aspects of this aside, I've long thought that schools just need to catch up with the modern entertainment and sports industry. Being a professional athlete is a well respected, and often high paying, career for many people in practically every part of the globe. The tools needed to be succesful in the football industry are clearly not the same as those needed to be successful as an educator, a nurse, an engineer or a scientist. The general admissions requirements are simply out of date with many modern careers.
If the world's most elite young director wants to pursue theatre at Michigan why do they need to be "OK" at math to do so?
If the world's most elite musician, the next Bach or Beethoven, wants to pursue music at Michigan why do they need to be "OK" at language arts to do so?
If the world's most elite athlete wants to study their natural field at Michigan why do they need to be "OK" at so many other things?
Forcing applicants to be well rounded really does mean you are turning away some genius talents. This isn't really targeted at any one school and it's not a change that's needed to be successful. A good program will succeed period. It's just something that comes to mind when I hear people tout the academic standards of Michigan... why? Maybe in order to be accepted to the Nursing School you should need a minimum 40 time and bench press score?
|2 years 12 weeks ago||That's....||
That's never happened to me before. I swear!
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Because...||
The average fan will actually think it's the heisman winner and not spend the time to look up his number. The majority of college fans wouldn't know the diference.
It's actually a good idea from a marketing standpoint.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||That second post...||
...provides all the TexAgs information on how to vote multiple times. Might as well join in. Hopefully you can make it through posts like:
"This works and is much more quick than creating new accounts"
"It's alot more better way of voting!"
to get to the real instructions. :-)

on how things would be today with any of my ex's generally leads me to make stupid decisions.
