The list of successful players who are also successful coaches is pretty short. Being a good player doesn't mean being a good coach.
|6 hours 18 min ago||luckily for michigan the big||
luckily for michigan the big ten is a pretty easy conference. So starting 2-2 doesn't kill the season.

One of the greats and greatest of all time is two completely different statements. Brady is one of the greats but isn't the greatest of all time. Both are true statements.
But of the QB's listed Brady might have had the most help of any of those guys for most of his career. Elite defenses for the first half of his career, one of the best coaches of all time, his best year included maybe the most physically gifted wr of all time, etc.

Last time I checked Brady didn't win any super bowls playing for Michigan and the Patriots don't play in Detroit. I get liking Brady but he didn't cement his legacy as a great qb while at michigan.

Always a great way to land a recruit when it is because osu doesn't care because they think they can get better players but whatever he seems good so I'll be happy if he ends up here.
Peoples-Jones is about as close to a must get as any recruit could ever be. In-state 5 star who is probably a top 10 player in the country with two parents who went to Michigan at a position of extreme need where early playing time isn't a bad sign. If he goes anywhere else it is a problem.
|4 days 9 hours ago||Montana was better, Marino||
Montana was better, Marino was better, Manning was better.He may be tied for the most accomplished quarterback but he isn't the best.
If you had the oporutnity to draft every qb at their prime brady wouldn't be the first one taken. It is that simple.

lol at Brady being the greatest of all time.

I'm saying we also do shady shit. Clemson has had a clearly better last decade of football.

Hey guys, hate to burst your bubble but so does Michigan.

Biefeldt is gone because if he is getting more than 5 minutes a game we are not beating good teams. It is that simple. The bar is set higher than what he can provide.
|6 days 9 hours ago||Shocking that the pre-season||
Shocking that the pre-season national championship favorite would be the most talented team in an otherwise shitty conference. OSU might take like 5 players from the rest of the conference combined as starters. They probably have the most talented player at every position on the field in the big ten.
Doesn't mean we can't beat them, but they are the better team on paper and most likely in reality also.
|1 week 4 days ago||Man people are getting so||
Man people are getting so salty about this. They had hundreds of things on sale over the course of the day including some desirable stuff over 50% off. Sure things sold out but that is because they had a lot of people interested. They sold more stuff than black friday so clearly enough people found things they liked. It also caused walmart and bestbuy to also put things on sale, between those 3 places you could get most items on sale for most of the day. How is that bad? Amazon never has and never will do a 20% off everything sale and anyone expecting that was bound to be disspaointed.
Prime is an amazing deal between the free movies and free 2 day shipping plus random deals throughout the year. Not sure why people are so upset at Amazon for including things like diapers in their sale rather than just putting up fun toys. If you were stocking a kitchen or had a baby yesterday was great. Not every sale is about getting a new tv.

That tweet is a stupid response. No way is saying UA is a threat to Nike next year. UA barely existed when current high school seniors were born so Nike still being liked better isn't shocking. But UA's growth has been pretty big and they are just entering the shoe market now and have Steph Curry to market it. They also have Spieth signed to a 10 year contract in golf as well and a bunch of baseball players including Bryce Harper. They've done a really good job of getting in on big young stars for marketing purposes and that will pay dividends. Plus with Notre Dame, Auburn, South Carolina, Maryland, Northwestern, etc they have a pretty good toe hold in college athletics for being a still young company.

While we are at it other annoying things from uva. Wearing ties to football games and pretending to ignore that the University of Maryland has the largest mall in the country, not UVA.

Stop saying grounds. Its a fucking campus.
Also when I was there for a model un conference in high school we went to the white spot and it was pretty good. Plus as the only predominatley black school at the conference we found it funny in a "uva frats have been known to make their pledges but on black face and pick cotton and they have a restaurant called the white spot" sort of way."

If you can get it do FIOS build your own package and do the sports packages, that is what I do. If not anything but comcast is the way to go.
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||Thats not really true for||
Thats not really true for graduate schools. In state tuition (as in just straight tuition) at michigan $26,367 for in state $27,867 for out of state. You save a whopping $1,500 a year. Harvard on the other hand is $57,200 so going to public school over private might make financial sense. As far as I can tell Georgia in state is a litte over $19,000 for in state. My guess is people aren't making the decision to stay in state in Georgia vs going to Michigan because of $7,000 a year but maybe I am wrong.
|2 weeks 7 hours ago||According to US news which is||
According to US news which is whatever but an easy baseline OSU is the 18th best public school in the country and Georgia is the 20th, not a huge jump there in terms of the actual academics he will receive while there. Florida and Texas A&M are also in the top 25 of pulbic schools (which is all that really matters here, if it was strict academic rankings, Stanford, Duke, Northwestern etc would be top 10). Plentyt of schools in the sec are in the same academic grouping as big ten schools.

This matters when we actually get a recruit they want from there. This thread is going to look bad when Gary is at Auburn and Peoples-Jones is at Bama.
|2 weeks 7 hours ago||When I found out UGA had the||
When I found out UGA had the #4 graduate program for public administration it was surprising to say the least. Girlfriends family is all from Georgia so it will probably be on the list when I'm applying to public policy/public administration schools.

And Harbaugh. Michigan fans don't get to talk about dui's.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Maryland basketball has one||
Maryland basketball has one of the largest arenas in the country, has the largest student section in the country, is in one of the best recruiting parts of the country and has a top 15 program history. Sure they aren't great at football but Maryland adds a lot of value on the basketball side.
Maryland sports also won 7 big ten championships this year, the most of any school.
Maryland is also located in the 4th largest metro area in the country (Baltimore/DC), is a well respected research institution, has access to the library of congress, etc.
The only reason Maryland was a bad addition is if the only thing you care about is football. I just think its funny that people love the Nebraska addition when literally the only positive thing they bring is football.

How is using sling tv an argument right now? People who argue that unbundling will cost more are projecting that the landscape will change as well.
When unbundling does occur netlfix will either cost a lot more, cease to exist, or only have seasons that are old on it because stations will get more propietary and host things exclusively on their websites for their subscribers. Same thing with hulu. Sling tv exists in the current market, nothing about its pricing model is helpful for determining how much ESPN would cost in an unbundled world because ESPN doesn't need to charge sling tv customers $30 to remain viable in the current market.

None of you guys have clearly ever visited a caps message board. He gets more flak than he deserves but I don't know a single Caps fan who thinks he is worth the money you guys just paid.
Of course knowing Caps history he will probably end up in the hof.

Sucks for the wings that he shows up small time all the time in big games.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Sounds like Harbaugh fucked||
Sounds like Harbaugh fucked up and did something dumb. If you are going to do what he did just don't do the interview. Being petty always makes you look bad.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Yes it was worth it. Sports||
Yes it was worth it. Sports teams make a city feel nice, they aren't actually drivers of economic growth and now the city has millions of dollars to spend on other things rather than a stadium.
Seattle's economy is doing just fine without the sonics, so yes not spending millions to keep them with a project with no roi was the right call.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Not if they think Desmond||
Not if they think Desmond Morgan will be major contributor this year whereas they have more depth on the dline so they care less about losing Pipkins
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Desmond doesn't know jack||
Desmond doesn't know jack about Ondre's health situation. People here are looking for any reason to support Harbuagh and that is fine. But Morgan doesn't know how Ondre feels, he doesn't know what the doctors told him, and he wasn't part of the conversations between Pipkins and Harbaugh.
This is a situation where a player doesn't necessarily know more and has a vested interest in protecting the coach. It is a good sign Morgan wants to defend Harbaugh, it doesn't prove anything about the situation because its not a situation Morgan would have knowledge of. Only the doctors, Pipkins, and Harbaugh know.
