The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

Goodell has the power to enforce discipline based on policies agreed to in the cba. He does not have the authority to arbitrarily discipline players.

As far as I'm concerned, at best Hoke was guilty of incompetence.

You should be lambasted. I hope adults watching sports are doing it because it brings them happiness.

I've never understood how gold is different than any currency. It has no (or at least very little) intrinsic value. It is only valuable because people decide it is valuable.
I agree it is less volatile than any individual stock, but that doesn't make it a safer investment than the stock market as a whole (Note that I could be wrong about this, I know that there are actual ways to define "risk" and I don't pretend to know how that works, hence why people shouldn't take financial advice from football message boards. But I feel like I'm right...).

I believe "downvoting" should be hyphenated.

You were making a ton of sense before you started talking about gold. People always talk about gold like it's a safe investment and I don't get it. When I look at two year periods comparing gold to the market, I just don't see gold as a better vehicle.
*My opinion is based on historical data which is not a reliable indicator of future results something something something.

The stock market is "pretty much for sure" going to go up in the next 2 years? Do you practically guarantee it? There are "potentially signifigant gains" but no thoughts about losses?
You give horrible financial advice. But then again the OP is asking for financial advice on a Michigan football blog, so that's probably better than he should expect.

Do you seriously think anything in this passage applies to Hoke? You either don't understand the prose or don't watch Michigan football.

Who is saying that RichRod was a miracle worker to get that team to 3 wins?
I don't know how old you are, but I think, because of the last 2 coaches, people forget what "low expectations" meant to Michigan at that time. No one was predicting 3-9 because the thought of Michigan going 3-9 was incomprehensible. We were coming off 30ish straight bowl games, so as far as large portions of this fan base was concerned (me included), 7-5 was literally the worst case scenario we could imagine.
It sounds silly now, but that was the mindset then.

I have zero proof, but I assume Alabama is clean. I have no idea why I think that, but I do (I mean, not squeaky, 100% clean, but essentially as clean as Michigan). I think it's mostly because I beleive that, in general, corruption comes from the boosters, not the coaches, and Alabama was thouroughly mediocre prior to Saban. I also assume that Auburn, Ole Miss, and Clemson are dirty.
I have many more opinions if anyone would like to subscribe to my newsletter.

This is fucking stupid. Number 7 on the list is:
"All Power Five conference football coaches"
So saying Harbaugh is number 8 means absolutely nothing.
Shame on you.

I say all three of those. I do however hate it when a person says they are an alumni of a school. That probably makes me a hypocrite and I could care less. Or is it an hypocrite?

Didn't Colorado play Oklahoma on thanksgiving weekend? Maybe that was the 90s. I really enjoyed that game before Colorado dissolved their football program

First, The post you replied to never said anything about freedom of expression, it simply suggested that if people don't like something, they make a personal choice to not go see it. The STFU was thrown in, as I read it anyway, to suggest that they don't whine about it.
Second, while I suppose that telling someone to STFU is technically an attempt to quell their expression, it is in no way encroaching on their freedom of expression. Those are two very different things.
FWIW I don't think that the university deciding not to air a movie violates anybody's freedom of expression, but it's still inappropriate based on the many things that have been pointed out by others.

Pretty sure an anonymous poster on a message board telling people to stfu is not encroaching upon anyone's freedom of expression.

What does he get royalties for? Is that part of the EA sports settlement or something else?
