|2 hours 26 min ago||Loyalty||
I come from a family of Michigan grads. My dad, his siblings, my two brothers, myself, plus a host of other family members. Some of my clearest, earliest memories of life are at Michigan Stadium. I was at the Michigan vs. Alabama debacle in Dallas, and after that game, and more importantly my reaction to it, I decided that I wouldn't get too emotionally invested in the outcome of games anymore.
That being said, I'm dedicated and loyal to only a few things; my family, my country. One of those things is the University of Michigan. I work Saturday afternoons and evenings, so I won't be able to watch the game, but I will listen to it on the radio, and than download a torrent or take it off mgovideo and watch it knowing the outcome. I don't care who the AD is or who the coach is. I'm loyal to the maize and blue and the winged helmut. To walk away when it gets tough and come back when it's easy would be spineless.

Don't pay attention to the game, man. Enjoy your grizzled beard, sweet boat, and hot wife instead.

doesn't that seem a little extravagant?

You also think that Graham Glasgow is the weak link on the offensive line?

You hunker down in your fort, don't tell the media shit, and have conversations about who's starting and who's not starting and why with your quarterbacks in private.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Thanks Guys||
I work saturday afternoons, so I'm gonna be relying on these this season, I've given up on isolating myself from the result, but at least I can watch.

does it really matter? How classy or legendary can a trophy look when it's got a giant fucking dr. pepper logo on it?

On the bright side, I feel like there's at least a little relief knowing exactly what the issue is now. I don't know much about shin splints but they aren't always from stress factures right? Now they know it's a matter of healing and rehabbing, whereas before they weren't really sure what the issue was. And there should be more of a concrete timeline for his return too.

|39 weeks 14 hours ago||Loyalty||
I know loyalty doesn't exist anymore, but it's kinda dissapointing that he jumped ship so quick, especially after saying in no uncertain terms that he was in it for the long haul at PSU.

|41 weeks 5 hours ago||severe burns?||
Those burns don't look too bad to me, I work in a kitchen as a cook, mostly grill and fryer, so I'll admit I'm used to it, but right now I've got three burns on my hands that are worse than those, and I have to go back and work with those burned hands over hot stoves every night and just deal with the pain until they heal. The burns I have now are not the worst burns I've ever had, those ones faded away, and so will the ones I have now.
It just kinda bugs me that of course they're gonna make a big deal out of this, his lawyer is all over it lawyerspeaking the shit out of the situation, the restaurant has to stop serving it this way and they're probably gonna get sued, I don't think deserves compensation at all.
I guess the fact that I hate Valenti might effect my opinion, but whatever.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||Borges||
Does anybody else feel like Borges is trying to get fired at this point. I have a hard time blaming the players when it seems like none of our guys has any idea of what they're doing on any play, and the defense clearly does know they're doing because they have it covered anyway. Hey, I know, let's line up under center and run every first down even though our oponent is putting 8 guys in the box and blitzing. These coaches are putting their players in positions to fail.

My brother and I have been yelling at the TV all season about Green going down on first contact everytime. A 230-40 pound back ought to be able to break a few tackles.

It's kinda dissapointing isn't it. I'd like to wear a hat like that now, but I'm not a hipster so I can't.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||minnesota v. michigan, 1927||
Anybody see that guy going nuts on the sideline after Michigan's first touchdown? Right around the 1:25 mark.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||This is exactly right||
We're gonna be good, I'm not saying it's an automatic loss for them, but it's gonna be a very tough game year in and year out. So they can't find the room on the schedule to play Michigan every year, but they can find the room to play Purdue and Navy every year.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Wow, you guys are quick||
Everybody's right, my issue with the fundamentals comment is probably more of an anectodal, touchy-feely thing. I don't have any numbers, sometimes watching them I just wish they relied less on power hitters, and more on manufacturing runs. Having said that, I love prince and miggy as much as the next guy, and to be fair, Cabrera makes some great plays out there, I don't know what his advanced stats say.
When it comes to the bullpen, I hadn't seen the Veras trade when I posted that, so I'd agree, with Dotel on the mend, it seems to be shaping up.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Bullpen help||
If this guy is as good a defender as some seem to think, I like this, we need defense. I know Peralta is not a terrible defender, but in general the Tigs D is not that good, I love the idea of having a great defensive shortstop. I think that's one of our biggest problems, not just defense but lack of fundamental play, good baserunning, hitting for average, etc. Some of the clips in that video were pretty exciting. I didn't look up the numbers, but all these naysayers pointing to the '.200' average ... .257 is not .200.
Still need bullpen help though.

Does the thread with more comments win? I think this should be the official 'Devin Gardner fluff piece on Granland' thread.
