The last place I expected to see a Propagandhi post. Well done.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed||
This place, dare I say it, is at its best when it's at its most Michigan. That is, thoughtful, well-reasoned discussion with a dash of salt. It is completely unlike other sports forums and that's something to be valued. Save the trashy, misogynist avatars for NFL forums--if they exist.
Oh, yeah, and GET OFF MY LAWN.

I believe this. I was a GSI then and had Kelly in one of my sections. Always impressed that Kirk sent her to Michigan.

I'd like to note my approval for this post and all postings confirming Harbaugh's homecoming.
|31 weeks 12 hours ago||That is the only correct||
Yes is the only correct answer.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Good||
Raiders games at the Rose Bowl were kind of terrifying. Even if you were nominally a Raiders fan the sheer amount of thugs and gangsters in that stadium was enough to make anyone sane person a bit uncomfortable.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||I get this and appreciate||
I get this and appreciate he's probably a much better coach than what we saw on the field this year. But you can't argue with the results. Perhaps it was Hoke setting the parameters that prevented Nuss' offense from developing or re-tuning during the season, but I'm not sure that's a gamble JH would want to take. Further, Nuss was seemingly pushed out of Alabama after a pretty successful stint there. Clearly Saban thought his offense could due better with someone else at the helm. Unless it was just a personality clash, I suspect that Saban saw issues with the offense under Nuss and thought he could find someone to do it better.
The argument for continuity is solid though. Either way, I'd hope we have a far more dynamic, adaptive offense next year. Our team had nothing on that side of the ball and it can't all be attributed to Gardner.

Well that's something. Come on friends and family, bring Jim home!
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Funny. Yesterday he was on DC||
Funny. Yesterday he was on DC espn radio (i.e., before news of the offer broke) and he said (paraphrasing) that whereas he hadn't given any credence to JH goin to UM earlier, he now wasn't ready to dismiss it as a possibility.
That was progress. This is a regression. I increasingly want Harbaugh to Michigan to happen almost as much to rub it in the NFL's face as I do for the obvious. The reporting by Schefter and his NFL beat comrades is getting beyond obnoxious.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||Ditto. Exactly my experience.||
Ditto. Exactly my experience.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||The world needs some good news||
Let HARBAUGH TO MICHIGAN be it, please.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||IT'S HAPPENING||

Give this Bama fan some karma!
Let's hope it's true.
|33 weeks 5 days ago||So the Fister trade was...||
So the Fister trade was... not very successful afterall. Unless Shane Greene turns out to be a stud. I know nothing about him, but Ray was a solid prospect at least.

|33 weeks 6 days ago||Come on guys. This all||
DOUBLE POST. Thanks CC traffic.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||Come on guys. This all||
Come on guys. This all relative. Of course it doesn't rain in Corvalis every minute of everyday all year long. But compared to Nebraska, or Colorado, or SoCal, or NorCal, or Wyoming, or Michigan, Corvalis like much of Oregon's I-5 corridor can be fairly and accurately described as rainy from late fall through first half of spring. Wasn't saying it's a bad place. It's a great town. Even if the winds from Albany aren't always that pleasant.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||Wow||
That's a surprise. Riley had opportunities to skip town for USC but stayed, content with life in rainy Corvalis. Maybe he thought OSU would want to make a change given another disappointing season. Either way, good coach. Not a threat.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||I wasn't happy to see RR go.||
I wasn't happy to see RR go. I feel the same about Hoke. No question he's a great guy and coached his heart out. Part of being a successful leader is strength of will--something Hoke excelled at. Another part is adaptation. Something Hoke seems to have struggled with.
I wish it had worked out differently.
I also hope all the best for him and his family. They're part of the Michigan family and I'll root for him wherever he lands. I wouldn't be surprised to see him bounce back like RR. He--and the university--will hopefully learn much from this experience.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Opportunities like this come||
Opportunities like this don't come around often. Still feel like a douche though. Low hanging fruit...
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Way to drag things out. Now I||
Way to drag things out. Now I know how the folks in Ferguson felt waiting for the indictment. Actually I still don't know how they feel, but I digress. WTF LET'S DO THIS
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Seems to confirm the info||
Seems to confirm the info Schefter has. The winds are blowing away from JH. Hello Schiano?
|34 weeks 2 days ago||I feel the same way. We||
I feel the same way. We clearly need a change, but it's tough to see a good guy fail. I felt the same about RR.

By ignoring college football this season, or at least forgoing watching most of the games.

As a Nats fan, Lombo is missed. But it's been great to see him do so well with the O's.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Meanwhile, Lombardozzi is||
Meanwhile, Lombardozzi is tearing it up in Baltimore. I really thought Lombo was a solid part of the Fister deal, now that deal makes even less sense.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||With the amount of money in||
With the amount of money in baseball today it's doubtful a top player will ever play the number of years needed to reach Rose's feat. The player's lack the financial incentive (they'll already be filthy rich well before that) and the owners will be more reluctant to keep players many years past their prime (obvious current exceptions aside). At least that's my thinking.

A historic partnership with Dominoes Pizza? "Introducing "The Big House" - two extra-large pizzas,10 of your favorite toppings, an order of pasta or wings, plus choco-donos for desert! All for the infinitely reasonable price of $14.99!"

Say what you will about Kirk, but just remember that he sent his daughter to Michigan to get an education. I had her in my class as a GSI, and she was an excellent student, who always took responsibility for herself and never made an excuse. I gained a lot of respect for Kirk after getting to know his kid.
