Jesus, why don't you just say "by the buisiness and working class Michigan community?" Just because the term "proletariat" came up in your Social Science 303 class doesn't mean you should use it as some sort of appeal to intellectual authority.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||I've been attending Michigan||
I've been attending Michigan games on and off for about 20 years now and I'm struggling to remember a single instance of a packed house in the 4th quarter during a blowout of a team like Indiana, Purdue, Northwestern, etc when the temperature has dipped below 40.
And those are years that we're playing for something. This team is playing for a bid in the Duck Dynasty bowl or some shit if they win 2 of their next 3. There's not a lot to cheer about at the end of a blowout in fridgid weather against a doormat, and that's not even considering this Michigan team's performance or record.
I'm not necessarily disagreeing with your point of positive reinforcement, a lot of these kids could use some, but don't act like this hasn't been the case for the last several decades because you're a little pissy right now. I'm not saying it's right but I can certainly understand those who didn't stay.

I can get behind that and I don't doubt the validity of the statement although it ignores a lot of the personality issues, the PR gaffs, and the ticket gouging.

In this case saying that Desmond is out of touch doesn't mean that he's wrong, it means that he is not on the same page as the majority of the fan-base. Implying that he was ran out purely based on the football team's record ignores a lot of the issues that the fans, students, and alumns were complaining about. The record of the team had something to do with it but, if it was purely that then I'm sure the fans would have been happy with a coaching change.

This was an article that was buried in the ESPN Big Ten Blog that got bumped in light of today's move. Pretty awesome that some investigative reporting from this-here site gets noticed nationally though.

Stop toying with my emotions. If it hasn't happened yet or there's no credible source, it's not worth reporting on.
EDIT: Alright, that's good enough for me. You win, I will allow myself to get a little excited now. I still stand by my downvote for posting without sources.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||The difference between ESPN||
The difference between ESPN citing an anonymous source and some random guy on a blog citing an anonymous source can be measured in orders of magnitude. I have no reason to believe that this guy is well-connected or that his sources are anything more than someone in his econ class that knows a guy who tried out for the lacross team.

In 2008 I got into a fight with a student from Toledo after they beat us. Not my proudest moment.
**Disclaimer: I live in Florida and will not be attending the game. I just thought I would share.**

Once the brine has cooled down to room temperature after the boil you are good to go. It won't hurt to add a few ice cubes in there to cool it down faster but remember that every bit of water you add to that, you're diluting the flavor of the brine. But yeah, after it's down to room temp you're good to throw the turkey in (actually drop it nicely, don't throw it) and then put it somewhere cool.
As far as injecting, your guess is as good as mine. I've never done it before so, if you go that route, I'd be interested to know how it turns out. I know a few restaurants inject their meat (I have a dirty mind).
|3 weeks 6 days ago||So I like to brine my turkey||
So I like to brine my turkey before smoking it. I find that it keeps is really juicy. I do 1:1 ratio of vegetable stock and cold water (usually about a gallon of each). In the brine goes a liberal amount of salt (a cup or so is usually good) and then some aromatic herbs like Rosemary, Thyme, Sage, and a couple cloves of garlic if you feel so inclined. Bring that mixture to a boil and then let cool. You're going to want to have your bird chill in that mixture (refridgerated is preferred but if you don't have room, I never do, your garage in November will probably suffice) overnight so plan accordingly.
After that all I do is I rub it with some oil & spices (to follow) and smoke with Hickory chips until the internal temp in the breast is 160 (some recipes say higher but we're smoking this bird and 160 won't kill you).
My spice rub is:
I use a gas smoker so it's pretty easy to regulate the temperature in mine but you want to keep the temp between 225 and 250. Good luck!

But yeah, the kid posted something from a family member he had no reason to believe was false and never thought it would gain any more steam than a board post on a sports blog. Glad he was redeemed, even if he can be a little annoying to some people sometimes.

I will say that I was the guy doing this. I gave Brian my take personally and, while I'm not 100% that this would stand up in court, I'm convinced they're real based on the information that was provided to me. The details will come out in Brian's post tomorrow but, as I stated earlier in this thread, some people owe WD an apology, in my opinion.
