I don't see it that way. It's very possible that the doctors are indicating he should no longer play. And that Harbaugh is acting in the best interests of Pipkins' health.

This is why I visit here every day. The analysis is great. Stuff like this is what makes MGoBlog such a great community. I hadn't even noticed the kid with the bowl cut when I watched it yesterday.

Why is this so complicated for so many people? National signing day isn't until next February. We have not signed anyone. There are going to be transfers, medicals, decommitments and 5th year seniors not coming back. It's not a problem. We are not over signing.

Well maybe you should consider that those you are accusing of being "liberal PC zealots" also truly believe what they are saying/feeling. Or maybe you are also a "liberal PC zealot." Or maybe you are someone who just happens to be a hypocrite and whose views shift depending on when and how it's convenient and/or how those views fit whatever point you are trying to make. Just something for you to consider before you accuse someone of racism and then turn around and criticize others for doing the same thing.

Interesting comment you make here...in light of how aggressively and repeatedly you accused me of racism in the thread regarding parents who give their children unusual names.

I've been coaching my son's soccer team for four years, so I know the boys pretty well. I'd say about half of the boys are interested in the ladies at this point.

...is my favorite Magnus move. Denying the existence of a player whose name was slightly misspelled by another MGoBlogger.
I'm really going to miss Dennis Northfleet. Anyone know what's going on with Troy Woolfork? I heard Nick Stauskas broke up with his girlfriend.
(What I did there. See it?)

Is it just me or does this preview read like they did nothing other than watch highlights of a few Michigan games?

I agree. It's worth remembering that, often times, those who to appear to be the most charming and friendly and caring are using these characteristics as a way to hide their immoral and unethical and sometimes illegal actions.

And I just received an email from my daughter's soccer coach letting us know that the (participation) "trophy's" are available for us to pick up.

Again, you are really over-reaching and twisting my words. What do ethnic names have to do with names like Rumer, Apple, Marvcus, etc? And how can you tell anything about my level of culture and whether I've read Freakonomics by one post or a few comments?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Don't mind being attacked...||
...but do mind the over-analyzing, over-reaching and conclusion-jumping that is going on.
Based on what you're saying...if I had used examples like Moon Unit, Rumer, Apple, etc. instead of Marvcus and Plaxico in the original post, we wouldn't be having anyone accusing me of being racist/elitist?
What if I had indicated in the original post that I'm black? Would that have made a difference? I'm sure there are many black people who think Marvcus and Plaxico are nonsensical names.
Why did everyone initially assume that I'm white and thus my post is coded/racist?
What if I had indicated that I'm black and had used only "white" names as examples of made-up names? Would I have been accused of being racist?
These are all serious questions, many of which people of all races are afraid of confronting...but the type of which need to be asked and answered...and discussed in a serious way if our country is serious about addressing racism and racial issues.
BTW...thank you for your respectful tone. And Keyden is one example of the goofy names. Many others in this thread have bemoned the "-eyden, -adyn, -ayden" names.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||How is this "coded?"||
The majority of the people who are responding to my OP are taking it in the spirit in which it was intended.
But there are a few of you who are indicating that the post is "coded" or "racist."
Please explain to me how this is the case.
Black people or other minorities surely have not cornered the market on odd names. Just in the realm of the celebrity world...Moon Unit, Apple, Rumer. I believe their parents are white. These names make no more (or less) sense to me than Marvcus (a former linebacker for the Buffalo Bills).
I am Jewish and find myself reading the birth announcements in the Detroit Jewish News and wondering how the parents of these babies came up with their names.
Other than my nephew, I don't know any black Jewish people...so all of these people are white.
Call the OP a reflection of a boorish or elitist attitude (which I don't believe it is), but there's nothing racist about it.
