On a semi-notsureifserious note, what if everyone on this board purchased some junk on Amazon through the mgoAmazon link.. that of course they were going to purchase anyway... and Brian set up a "Come Home Harbaugh" fundraiser via those funds.
Think it could do some (positive) damage? I am not the creative type to come with what kind of legal actions could be done with such money, but Harbaugh's got to have some sort of Christmas wish list that we could partially fulfill.

I hate losing just like the rest of you, especially the way the game ended, but I'm looking forward to seeing how this team will perform under adversity with a fanbase screaming for their coaches heads. At least you know the players love this coaching staff, so I hope this will motivate them to work even harder and beat the piss out of the B10. I'm going to support this team AND coaching staff until the end - Give Nuss time to work on this o-line before you crucify him as well.
On a side note, I actually saw some improvements in our running game. We all knew the O-Line would be a work-in-progress with improvements over the course of the year. Hopefully they improve enough by the time the MSU game comes around.
Looking forward to Saturday's game.

Denard in Philadelphia... *Heart Melting*
|18 weeks 2 days ago||The reason I stated this as a||
The reason I stated this as a "religious discussion" is because religion defined the culture in which this country was founded for which still influences our nation to this day, which resulted in a particular known judgment towards homosexuals. It is because this nation was first a Christian nation that homosexuality has been such a hidden topic for so many years. Over time those viewpoints have been challenged and we are now seeing a rise in acceptance of homosexuality.
That is why this is a religious topic, because if it wasn't for conservative religion this would never have been the hot button issue it is today. Not all Christians or religions see homosexual behavior as immoral, just as not all non-religious people view it as moral. But the fact is that Christianity has always been a reason for why this is now newsworthy because of the culture it helped define, which is what I meant by a religious topic. I didn't mean anything by that other than I just wanted to help make aware the fact that the issue really shouldn't be whether or not we agree with the life he lives but that we should commend him for being real with who he is.
I meant to stop before but I felt like I was being misunderstood, so I apologize if my statements offended anyone. Again, my main point is to bring unity to the idea that no matter what beliefs we have regarding homosexuality, we need to feel compassion for those who feel they need to live in a dark hole to protect themselves from "haters" and acknowledge that this is a very bold and embraceable motion.
Mods, feel free to delete my comments if needed.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||I have learned over time that||
I have learned over time that you are correct about homosexuality not being a choice. The actions are choices, and that is where my moral beliefs kick in. This is where I wanted to stop the discussion because of the boards standards.
All I can add is that I have made an insurmountable amount of immoral choices in my lifetime, so I have no judgment towards sexually active homosexuals. And I will not pretend to understand homosexuality because of the scientifical aspect of it; I am not a homosexual, so there's no way for me to grasp what it's like to be homosexual or to feel a sexual attraction towards another man. And this is the case for every heterosexual male or female regardless of your viewpoints on homosexuality.
I apologize if I stepped overboard the religious discussion, I just wanted to clear that up. This is all I will say from here on out about this. This is such a sensitive topic, and rightfully so. I wish extremists from both sides could choose love over hatred.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||The thing that I don't like||
The thing that I don't like about topics like this is that they become heated and result in a lot of hate towards particlar thoughts/beliefs regarding homosexuality as well as the particular individuals they involve. "Religion" is the main reason why this is such a big deal in the first place, so to say "no religion" should mean that these things should probably not be brought up on the board in the first place only because it restricts comments to one particular viewpoint and prohibits others from expressing themselves.
That being said, despite the fact that I am a proclaimed Christian and have my own views on the subject of homosexuality, one thing I can say for sure is that I am proud of him for allowing himself to come to terms with his homosexuality in that he is not afraid of the decisions he makes and what people think of those decisions. I truly believe that if you make decisions that are regretful and are morally against them yourself, you should do everything in your power to correct those behaviors. If you like the decisions you make and find them moral and just, it is sad to think that you would be forced to contain those beliefs/life choices within yourself and "hide" from the world - So many negative consequences come from that, and I imagine that must be an extremely tough world to live in.
I respect and love those who are real about who they are, and I truly wish those who do not agree with his life choice would still love him for being real about himself and love him for who he is as an individual. Unfortunately, this is not the case most of the time. And that's truly sad and hateful, which is not what "we" are called to be.
I will only go this far in the discussion since this is not a board for "religious discussions," but I do wish those who see this from the other extreme realize that those who have differing opinions on "homosexuality" are not terrible people just like those who practice homosexuality are not terrible people - When it's an issue of hatred towards a particular individual, then it becomes inhumane and unjust regardless of the viewpoint.
I, too, wish for a day where these things don't have to be a huge media event any longer.

If Drake Johnson turns out to be the starter, I'd say that has more to do with his actual skill than the lack of skill from Green and Smith.
The only position group that I feel is questionable is the O-Line. I don't know why, and maybe this is every year and I'm just too excited for the season to start, but I feel like the coaches seem to be a lot more positive about their team as a whole this year. I see that especially from the defensive side, but I feel like I can recall a lot more "need to step up" talk from the O-Line throughout the preseason and during the season last year. Hoke seems to speak positively about specific players on how they're doing, which to me seems to be an improvement.
Not saying we have an All-Big10 line this year based off of what I'm reading, but I'm becoming more optimistic about where things could be. Wait and see I guess... *sigh*

I had similar thoughts. From how I took it, Nuss had limited control of his offense because of Saban, so I think him having full control over our offense might bring a different tempo/style than what we're used to seeing at Alabama.
Also, Borges was given pretty much full rein of the offense at Michigan. Hoke may have taken a little bit more control/guidance at the end, but he always gave Borges his "full trust" in how he ran the offense. I think this is why Nuss was so attracted to Michigan in the first place - He was going to get his shot at running things how he wants to run them.

So what you're saying is... Devin can't predict the future 100% accurately and that upsets you? This wasn't an "I promise I'll take out the garbage today" kind of guarantee.
Question... Would you rather have him say something to the effect of "I don't know what will happen but I will try to make sure we win" or would you rather have him show confidence and drive with a "guarantee" being that he has more control over the offensive performance than any other player on the field?
The thing about that "guarantee" with the win over OSU last year told me that this dude is going to do everything he can to win. You don't guarantee something will happen without doing your best to give it your all because you know the risks of what you're saying. Watching that game, I have no doubt in my mind Devin gave it his all. I honestly couldn't believe he was still going at the end of that game - It was a remarkable game for him.
Him making claims to push Hoke off the hot seat tells me that he is working really freaking hard to improve and make this offense the best it can be. Therefore, I LIKE.

I frankly don't see how it would be so difficult for the NCAA to audit schools on a semi regular basis and take control of academic related problems with "student athletes" if they actually cared about it. To me the NCAA is just as much to blame as the schools themselves.
Money matters too much to the NCAA and college institutions that the fear of losing star athletes due to academic reasons prevents full accountability towards keeping each student athlete under the same kind of academic restrictions and guidelines as other students at those institutions. If the NCAA really wanted to take care of this problem, then do audit testing on actual random players (especially when evidence actually exists in the world that it occurs) and test these academic standards placed on athletes.
I just think this is really bogus and just enhances the reality that college sports is a huge cash cow for schools and the NCAA and only enhances the arguments placed for paying players since money is obviously what drives both organizations.
One of two things needs to be done. Either you start treating student athletes as students first both by the NCAA and each individual institution and be punished for a failing to do so, or you can no longer pretend that athletes are actually students when their money-generating abilities take precedence over their academic potential.

To be honest with you, if there is one team in the NBA that is not only really good but also plays with a plentiful amount of youth minutes.... OKC would be that team.

Well dang, his mom tossing Dantonio out of the house was the only pleasing thing I read from this whole crazy story. It was all the mom had going for her in my opinion, and even that is lost now.
Hopefully they indeed work this whole thing out together, and Malik ends up happy with his end decision.

|1 year 23 weeks ago||Alright, well if I was going||
Alright, well if I was going to make up a story I probably wouldn't have gone the "poetry" route, which is completely random and ridiculous.
I will say that even if I did write this poem myself, I would still be commended for its greatness. It's THAT good.
And no, unfortunately I do not have it memorized. All I have burned in my head is "Wild Honey" and a few foreign words for her love maker.
I am beginning to regret sharing this story.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||When you read a poem written||
When you read a poem written about you in sex language at work knowing that people constantly drop off stuff on your desk and could have noticed the poem and been curious enough to take a sneak peak at it, your potential reactions are endless.
I realize the hilarity of this story is found in the poem itself, so there might not be much of a reaction to my story at the moment, but it seriously is probably the most insane and perhaps proudest moment of my life.
If I get enough requests, I may post a snippet of it after I get home from work, which is in.. like... 4.5 hours.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||I used to work with this||
I used to work with this chick who had a major crush on me. One night I decided to hang out with her despite the fact that I knew bad things could happen and could result in an awkward work situation, especially since I didn't find her as marriage material which means it would be more of a one and done situation. (Some of you might still question my hesitation, but when you have a career job and are looking to keep said career job, messing around with random chicks in the office is the worst thing you could do).
So I invite her over, we put on a movie, start talking... I decided that instead of making regretful decisions, I would just talk about making those regretful decisions with her and see how she reacted. Well.... let's just say I about got raped. I finally told her that she needed to go, and the night was over.
Get to work Monday morning (the event happened on a Friday night), and I look at my desk and there is a piece of paper sitting there which I did not leave on Friday. Now I knew this chick liked writing poetry, but I never really knew how much until I read what was written on that paper.
This poem was seriously the most provactive and sexually-explicit poem I had ever written, and it was sitting on my desk and was written about me. I nearly pooped my pants. She even signed off of the poem as "Wild Honey" if that paints any sorta picture.
I still have the poem in a keepsake box, and my wife is even cool enough to not force me to burn it in the fireplace.
I would share the poem, but I have a feeling I'd get banned from here.

Burke to OKC.. I'll take it... coming from someone who essentially lives in OKC.
However, Reggie Jackson is a very solid back-up PG who could probably start for some teams. I'm not so sure the Thunder would be a good home for him only because I'm not sure he'd be guaranteed even the #2 PG job.
Also, on that note, OKC needs a Big. PG should be set if Russell stays healthy, so I just have a hard time seeing them going PG with their pick. I have a harder time seeing him even available at #12, so maybe they just go for the best available if he's still there.
I also wouldn't be surprised if OKC trades up to fill a bigger need since they have another late first round and second round pick.
I just don't see Burke in OKC, even if I like the idea.

|1 year 30 weeks ago||I think tragedies like these||
I think tragedies like these just put things in perspective as far as priorities. Not just as far as the difference between a new roof and a new house, but also the difference between having a family who's alive and safe and losing a loved one. As you said, houses can be rebuilt, but you can't replace a child/mother/friend. I think the best thing to do in situations like these is to count our blessings, and instead of complaining about the little things in life that seem to not be going our way, find joy in what we've been blessed with and try to learn to not take those blessings for granted.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Yeah, they are going to||
Yeah, they are going to rebuild. Moore generally has lower property taxes and a much cheaper cost of living than a community like Edmond north of OKC. It also doesn't have the crime of South OKC, so people tend to like the area more for those reasons.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||I live in the Edmond/Oklahoma||
I live in the Edmond/Oklahoma City year - moved here about 4 years ago. It seems as if every "devastating" tornado that has hit the metro area since I've lived here carved a path right through Moore. Not growing up here but living here long enough to know a bit about Oklahoma's tornado history, I would never move to Moore. It's just one big bullseye.
On a side note in talks of damage/lives lost, Moore had about a 20 minute heads up that the tornado was coming. News feeds and weather updates are heavy and frequent in this area when it comes to tornadoes, and my crew at work was already watching the TV even before the tornado hit outside of Moore. Almost everyone should have known it was on its way, and more than likely 100+ lives will be lost from this one tornado. Back in the day, they had no warnings; if they weren't looking up in the sky, they probably had no clue one was coming. I feel that if we still lived in that age today, the lives lost today would have been WAY worse - possibly hitting that #1 spot for most lives lost. The damage from this thing is unbelievable. Everyone who lives in this area can feel this one, and we all know someone who this has affected. It's just crazy.

|1 year 32 weeks ago||Not exactly the same||
Not exactly the same situation. The state of Oklahoma has a pretty solid base of recruits every year, almost comparable to Michigan. Then there's Texas, its border state, which is one of the 3 biggest recruiting states in the country. Texas may be large and spread out, but Michigan's recruiting spread is very comparable to Oklahoma's spread. Nebraska is literally in the middle of nowhere.
Here's a list of Nebraska's border states:
South Dakota, Iowa, Kansas, Colorado and Wyoming.
You could maybe include Missouri, which is probably the best recruiting state among those remotely close to them (Missouri or Colorado). Not to mention that the state of Nebraska isn't exactly known for it's elite football either. Sure, some eliteish guys can pop up here and there, but not near as frequent as even states like Michigan or Oklahoma.
Short story: The current recruiting trend does not assist Nebraska in any way.

I think it's pretty cool how they're all down to earth about it all and not super competive about which shool they ended up joining. I'm sure it isn't easy to develop relationships with guys you're walking around with on your unofficial visit that could end up taking the spot you covet. That's a lot of pressure for a 16 yr old kid, and they seemed to all take it pretty cool.

And just throwing it out there, but the "16-17" is what they have available right now - there is potential for a bigger class if (when) attrition happens.
I will also state that all recruiting sites rank classes differently, so some sites are a lot tougher to grasp that #1 spot with a smaller class than others.
THERE IS A CHANCE I SAY.
EDIT: What WoodChuck said.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||The reason I wouldn't worry||
The reason I wouldn't worry about this is the fact that Beilein is really good at making changes if necessary. If his initial plan isn't working as he'd hoped, he won't just sit on it and hope the team improves individually if better options are available. College basketball is a game where multiple lineups work, particularly situational lineups. Some games might work best with McGary at the 4 while other match ups might ask for more athleticism, and Beilein has proven to understand this (especially this past season). Not worried about it at all.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||I agree, which is why I said||
I agree, which is why I said "potential." Regardless, Hand+Peppers+Malik>Treadwell+Isaac (in my opinion).
The fact that we're even in the top three of the top two players in the country is just further evidence that Hoke is changing the tide in the rivalry, not to mention jersey sales in Ohio.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||It's early, but it feels||
It's early, but it feels like our class has the potential to look like USC's epic class from last year prior to it's epic crash (small but loaded).
|1 year 35 weeks ago||I am going to go ahead and||
I am going to go ahead and say that if we don't get one of either Hand or Peppers, you will see the return of the 'meme.' And not from me, just to clarify. Losing out on highly ranked prospects tend to bring out the worst in the extremely diehard 'I follow recruiting way too closely' fan base.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||Wow.||
|1 year 36 weeks ago||I don't know about you, but I||
I don't know about you, but I watched the whole game from start to finish on CBS. I saw some shots of the Fab 5 and a heard a few discussions, but I didn't miss one second of the game or feel slighted in the least because they attended. The cameras were on the game when they needed to be on the game, and the commentators knew they were commentating a basketball game and not a Fab Five reunion piece.
If you had troubles focusing on the game because they were in attendance and were getting too much "attention" (in your opinion), my guess is you are taking this situation way too personally. Enjoy the game, man. This thing doesn't happen often enough to let something take away from you the excitement of this experience.
