|10 hours 15 min ago||Very savvy...||
He handled all of the questions with a nice amount of nuance and savvy. Didn't fall in to the traps or narratives that the reporters were clearly seeking. Explained his answers clearly and at some length to avoid misunderstanding and creating bad headlines.
If how he communicates is indicative of how he manages the department, we are in good hands.

To the point where they are drowning out the singer. Or the people who talk non-stop.
|15 hours 2 min ago||Whether you like it or not,||
Whether you like it or not, you do what the majority of the people in your section are doing. If they are all sitting, it's sort of an asshole move to be that one guy who's standing. Conversely, don't be the curmudgeon complaining about the person in front of you standing when everyone else in the section is standing.

he apparently wasn't aware that we shouldn't be talking about beating MSU and OSU until we beat MSU and OSU?

I would normally agree with you, but we probably shouldn't have a thread about things we can't do until we beat MSU and OSU until we beat MSU and OSU.

Sorry. I can't afford the pay cut.

I put all my money in to ball bearings and plastics.

I swear I thought the bullet about Bo was going to end with "until you've beaten MSU and OSU." I clearly need a break from this blog.

I was up in Ann Arbor last evening and acquired the season tshirt. I'm ready!

We can't have a Posbang thread until... Never mind. I've lived in three homes in Birmingham during the life of the Cruise and have learned both how to enjoy it and how to avoid it. I'd recommend bringing an out-of-town guest to the Cruise so you can experience it thru new and excited eyes.

How is it embarrassing? I chuckle every time I see one of these comments.

Mobile -1 to you. It can't be played out...until we beat MSU and OSU.

Yes. Your multiple posts about fonts and serifs were much more interesting.

...has always been quite similar. Even most of our family trips are planned no more than two/three months out.

Man, that's some impressive advance planning.

Not allowed to go to two parks for the price of one until we beat....

$38 per day vs $23 per day for regular parking in the same deck.

Depends on when you fly. Sometimes it takes a while to find a space. Or you have to park far away. The valet is worth the extra cost, assuming it's not a hardship for you. I'm not in the habit of throwing away money, but the extra cost of the valet is offset by the convenience IMHO.
|1 week 5 days ago||If you are flying Delta and||
If you are flying Delta and this is for DTW, they have valet. Follow the park liking signs to valet. Drop off your car. Take 20 steps. You are in the terminal.

This is truly the type of joke that gets funnier with each usage. I've now started asking myself before doing almost anything..."Should I really be doing this/that until we've beaten MSU/OSU?"

Drunken, bored twelve year old monkeys?
|2 weeks 5 hours ago||Disagree||
There are very few - if any - college basketball teams that can effectively offset the loss of their best player for the season.
I realize that all teams lose players to injury, but Michigan has been bitten by the injury bug to an unusual degree...starting with McGary...and on to Walton and Caris.
|2 weeks 7 hours ago||My Parents||
Probably not going to be the most well-received answer, but my parents will pay for my kids to go to college. Or, as my dad says..."We'll pay or, if I'm dead, you'll have the money."
I realize I'm fortunate to be in this position...and it certainly will provide my kids with opportunities they might not otherwise have.
My wife and I do well, but the thought of having to allocated $500-1,000,000 for two kids to attend undergraduate and graduate school is obviously quite daunting.
I understand wanting kids to have some "skin in the game" via student loans, but the student loans can also hamstring the kids and cause them to make career decisions based on being able to pay back the loans. I'd rather they not have to be faced with that situation.
Kids are entering 10th and 7th grades this fall...so it's not so far away for us.

That actually seems like a low household income for a doctor and a lobbyist.

Count me in as being on Team Beilein. I'm fine with his approach, even if it has cost us the opportunity to get some of the most talented players. He also appears open to new ideas and approaches, given that he's turned over his coaching staff twice and has recruited some athletes who aren't necessarily great 3 pt shooters.

I'm so digging this meme. I chuckle every time I see one of these comments. Is someone compiling a master list of things we shouldn't be doing until we beat MSU and OSU? (And I swear I'm not being sarcastic. I'm from the school of thought that something like this becomes funnier the more you repeat it.)
