What is going on over there?! They have 3 QB commits right now, plus this/VA3 last year. I am not sure if this is on Helfrich/Frost or whoever, but it seems like they haven't recruited a QB since the class of Mariota (little known fact, at one point they had both Mariota and Manziel committed).
I suppose, on the other hand, this either shows faith in O'Korn (which seems likely based on the hype) or a confidence in getting Hill.

I hear Algebra 2 is really hard, but I think I can pull an A- this semester!
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Super insecure||
I actually wanted to post it to prove I am not trolling because I happen to really like this site (and hence wanted to stop the bleeding on the negatives). But I actually refuse to provide birth certificates because, as can be seen from the blacking out of the name, I don't really want you guys to like... find me in real life and.. I dunno, assault me?
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Meh||
I provided my proof because I understand the impulse to assume troll, but hey, you do you man.
I actually have a pretty great job, but, obviously am not rich based on the amount of schooling so...
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Well...||
Christmas day anyways
isn't it spelled Crisler? (Yes. I am kidding. And making a reference to Fritz.)
|45 weeks 2 days ago||See above||
I promise you I did. Big fan of A2. Gonna be on campus friday night for my bday actually!
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Okay|
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Are you saying I am a liar?||
Or that I shouldn't have gone to MSU? Because the first one can be fixed with pictures from the diplomas on my wall if you like...
|45 weeks 2 days ago||If I could||
I would upvote the RCMB reference so hard

Always seemed wrong to turn my back on my family.
And as noted above, I know, I was making a joke that was apparently very poorly taken...
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Right||
Read the first part, please, where I make explicit reference to it being a Harbaugh thing. Please.
|45 weeks 2 days ago||I was just teasing||
I know it's a harbaugh thing. I actually sorta like it, it sounds like something a responsible father would say (e.g. keep your head up, things suck but it gets better).
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Did you miss the part where I||
Did you miss the part where I literally referenced how HARBAUGH uses it and not the 49ers?
|45 weeks 2 days ago||I guess Connor Cook just||
I guess Connor Cook just can't stop disrespecting the legends of old.
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Guys||
It's the ESPN article title. R-E-L-A-X. Also, unlike Harbaugh, it appears that ESPN is using the phrase unironically (i.e. Harbaugh uses it as a sort of "embrace the suck").
Also- when did Michigan gain exclusive rights to the phrase from the 49ers, and how much was the acquisition fee?
|45 weeks 3 days ago||I am gonna go with racist||
but only because I think Spike's best comparison is not a guy who can't really shoot... Though i do agree they are both white.
|45 weeks 3 days ago||MSU does hate Michigan||
But Michigan hates MSU too. That is how rivalries work. Michigan fans don't want MSU to be good because college football tends to be a zero sum game. This fake air of superiority is somewhat annoying to MSU fans because at least they are honest about it. You think Alabama doesnt take time to mock Auburn (they do), you think Texas cares about Texas A&M's recruiting (they do).
The point is, have fun with it at least. I don't hate Michigan, but I certainly think it's fun to get all riled up. Why not? If you don't care about your rivals, then you are rooting for a team in a vacuum which, at least to me, makes little sense.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||Connor||
First things first, he is a member of the leadership Council at MSU, so he is respected enough to be a leader (voted on by the players). So any comment that he isn't a captain so he must be hated must be put in that context.
Second, he literally immediately apologized to Archie Griffin when he saw the video because he realized that the optics were much worse than what he realized at the time (when he, umm, shook Griffin's hand awkwardly?).
Finally, I am sure everyone loved every Michigan QB ever (Devin Gardner actually was a super nice guy the three times I met him, so lets leave him out of my sarcasm here...).
|45 weeks 6 days ago||Regardless of Sports||
This is the type of thing everyone can get behind and it was a very nice gesture from MSU and OSU to support it. Praying for the Carr family.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||The Why||
Michigan hates MSU for a lot of reasons. It goes back a century and a half to when UM wanted MSU to be a sattelite campus, and continued to UM's opposition to MSU's entry into the Big Ten.
But recently, UM hates MSU simply because MSU is better. Not necessarily academically, though MSU is world class in many areas (I have 2 degrees from UM [B.A. and J.D.] and 1 from MSU [M.A.Ed], but let's be honest, if this was only about academics, UM would hate Northwestern) but as an athletic department. Their basketball team has been dominant since Robert Traylor rolled that SUV over, and their football team has been dominant since Ryan Mallet transferred. MSU is better at being Michigan in football than MIchigan is. UM had the tough teams, the big running backs, the maniacal defenses, the QBs who got drafted... now MSU does. Kids who are Juniors in high school were 8 years old when Lloyd Carr left, and it is occurring to Michigan fans that their whole "MSU will go back to being MSU" might refer to MSU of the 50's and 60's (where they completely dominated UM).
Many here like to say that MSU is Staee (has anyone noticed that the car was a junker in that photo? Often the type of junker than kids would beat with a sledgehammer? Like... the rivals of that team?) and mock MSU for various reasons. The reality is, its a rivalry. Michigan's rivalry with OSU is like a country club rivalry (each team wants the other to be undefeated coming into the Game) whereas the UM-MSU rivalry is a gang war where any fan of either team would rather their opponent never played again... You tell me who the bigger rival is.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||Since MSU joined the B1G||
And the series turned into a true Home - Home rivalry (well... sorta, Michigan still was getting 2-1 until the 60's), the record is 35-29-2. It would help to be intellectually honest about these things.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Let me Try||
If you take away John L. Smith/Bobby Williams and Muddy Waters, then the record is...
26-24 so... yeah, you can't re-write history to pretend that things didn't happen (especially recent things)
|1 year 35 weeks ago||68-34...||
Guys, maybe we need to have a pow wow.
Since MSU joined the Big Ten, the record is 35-29 (in favor of Michigan). I am not sure that Michigan superiority should be championed when 37 of the first 42 games took place in Ann Arbor (Michigan record in those games? 33-6-3).
Yes, we are all super impressed by wins that happened before the Korean war (and National championships too) but maybe it's best to have some reality about what MSU was.
Though MSU can (and does) claim all of the games played, MSU was not even MSU until 1955 (they were MSC and MAC beforehand). This is to say nothing of the wins over Albion, Carlisle and Beloit.
If Michigan is really the leaders and best, why does it bolster that claim with wins against schools that would, today, be considered D3 or lower?
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Please ignore my points||
I had a friend use this account once, made a joke about Rich Rod, hence the remarkably negative score
The thing I am most worried about is that the class will likely not be certified in a post Comcast v. Behrend world where class certification for wage/FLSA cases (which this almost certainly is) is functionally impossible. The problem is that Justice Scalia, in his opinion, made it so that the damages must be uniform across the class which means, either the players are going to be paid uniformly across the sport (which doesn't really help the difference between Denard Robinson and Mike Kwiatkowski- I can make this comparison because I love Mike like a brother) or there is individual damages (Johnny Manziel gets money from jerseys) which will kill certification.
Though this is just one opinion, I would not be too optimistic for certification beyond the trial judge stage
|4 years 40 weeks ago||Accuracy||
Just for accuracy sake- Izzo didn't make a name for himself beating Michigan, he made a name for himself by winning a National Title. In addition in the last 3 years he has 2 Big Ten Championships and 2 Final Fours.
Michigan isn't actually that rich in talent, and Amaker recruited well, his teams just never got better.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||MSU||
Its the reverse for MSU. They view Michigan as a secondary nuisance in basketball like Michign views them in football. They want to beat Michigan but its more because its annoying to lose to an "inferior" program. For MSU the team they hate the most is Wisconsin and its not even a conversation. Bo Ryan pisses off the fans. The style of play pisses off the fans. And not being able to win in the Kohl center (until this year) pisses them off too.
In football its just the opposite obviously. MSU hates Michigan 1. then Wisconsin and ND in some order
|4 years 49 weeks ago||Yes||
I got there at 11:45 and I couldn't sit (stand) in my actual seats (like section 25/row 11) cuz it was so packed in. I ended up sitting in the alumni section, got yelled at for standing and made friends with an old Nebraska dude.
Highlight of that was his commment "Big Ten QBs are much better than the Big 12" which I thought was either awesome or proof he was senile... tough to say

I hear some good things about a walk on TE, i think its like kitkowsky or something to that effect, maybe he can help out the hole left by barnett
