They aren't "completely different".
Locker room talk is sexual assualt. Saying that you want to enact sexual violence is sexual violence. A threat is a form of violence, i.e. verbal assualt

Ever hear of a Michigan Man?
I was rather surprised by that part since the theory is often repeated here that Mens bball won't be uber successful because of integrity/honor.

Your arguments are for a perfect world that doesn't exist. The numbers are not equal and therefore cannot be treated as such. Too large a percentage of women, like women you know personally, have faced sexual assualt. When the number of sexual assualt victims reduces DRAMATICALLY, and when the #1 KILLER OF WOMEN stops being the male species then I believe we'll be at a better vantage point to consider the possibility of false rape accusations raising.
Be serious here, woman are being scared for life and your top concern is a false rape allegation. Lets focus more energy and effort on the real assualts that occur that go unpunished. If full and clear consent (a YES, her unbuttoning your pants) is too high a bar then maybe sex isn't for you at this time.

I'm open to suggestions but they actually have to be valid. A scandal occurred that took time and resources (see:money) away from business. That factually deters from the proper function as the function of the business is to make money.

for your helpful suggestions. Edited the title
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Yup||

at what point in American history has white supremacy not been imposed upon black people?

He's Nigerian. His birth name is Olubowale. So it's not pop culture but a world view that eludes you.

Love this movie! This is awesome.
Though IIRC Harrelson's character was a college all-american so unclear as to how this is Spike having "self-deprecating humor". They killed it tho

is one of the best things that I have seen written on this site.
Congratulations to you Brian on having the courage and dignity to write that sentence. Well done sir.

does it, its "boring as hell" but when Michigan basketball doesn't score A SINGLE BASKET for 7-10 minutes stretches it's great defense and Beilein is an offensive genuis? C'mon man, you can not have it both ways.
Was the fight a brawl? By no stretch of the imagination! Was it a great firght? I believe so.
Think about it this way. Manny gets paid very well to be able to HIT people. Floyd rendered him incompetent at that task for 36 mintues. That's good boxing to me. If you've ever been in a fight you'll know, it's very important not to get hit. The mental acumen that Floyd must have is incredible! He makes his opponets hit air repeatedly for entire rounds. Crazy. Being great at tactical and technical strategy is one of the reasons Michigan basketball has returned to prominence and we LOVE it! If you don't like the guy, just say that (many of us don't) but please don't be a hypocrite.
|1 year 52 weeks ago||Good point||
Brown is on the record saying he wants to say 2 years though fwiw...
|1 year 52 weeks ago||Not ready||
to call it a wash just cause you think so. We often (and rightfully so) find consternation at recruits who say education is important and then pick a school like 'Bama over us. Many here did with DeShawn Hand. It's not fair, they're number 1, we aren't. Let's not act like that isn't the case because someone chose them over us.
And my mention of Cal's player history was not to compare it to Michigan's, I agree that laughable. It wasn't a stand alone point, please don't try to make it seem like it was. Context, as we know, is important.
And yes, Beilein WAY over Martin everyday of the week.
|1 year 52 weeks ago||I see that you're confused||
No one is "just as good" as the #1. That's why they are #1, because they're better than the rest. Would you call Wisconsin "just as good" as Duke in basketball? No, you wouldn't.
Also, you're quite confused about Cal basketball. While they haven't been top tier they definitely have a history of good basketball players. They also have a McDonald's All-American on the roster as well as another top 5 recruit besides Brown. They had a winning record in their conference last year whereas Michigan did not and they also had a winning record overall whereas Michigan did not. Seems like he made a well thought out choice to me
|1 year 52 weeks ago||I'm confused||
... at how we all seem to be confused. Isn't academics a part of the "Michigan difference"? Don't we love to talk about Michigan's academic excellence? Don't we LOVE it when recruits pick schools because of the high quality level of education???
The kid just picked the top ranked undergraduate public institution in the country. Would I rather it were Michigan?? Heck yeah! Am I confused at why a high schooler would choose to go to arguably the best public undergraduate institution? Not in the least. Congrats to Mr. Brown. I hope we face Cal in the tournament and show him what he's missing out on!

going to MSU is how I imagine a lot of recruiting battles to go between rivals...
"hey kid, remember the school that didn't really want you once they got their fancy new coach? Come play for us and beat them!"
Sports are awesome.
|2 years 1 week ago||Exciting||
Well this is exciting news!
I like LeVert's game a lot. He can create space, and get to the basket. He senior leadership will come in handy too...
Not sure what this means for Brown but I'm certain this is a win for us!
|2 years 4 weeks ago||"I really hated how...||
guys would make mistakes and they would come off the field smiling"
So you really hate it when young people have fun and enjoy themselves playing a non life or death sport? Wow, that's interesting...
Sorry but I don't want coach to "rip me [or my son/daughter] a new asshole" because I made a mistake during an athletic competition were 11 other highly trained individuals are trying to help me make that exact mistake. It's a game. It's played because it's fun. I will never understand this line thinking.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Not friday||
yet where I am DST or not but I did just text someone a line from the movie Friday. Does that get me into the Bang party?
Also, that baby has some serious moves. That's like a salsa dougie, quite impressive!

no one remembers that Laettner stepped on a player during a basketball game? If anyone hates him its justifiable as he clearly has poor judgment and acts like a thug on the court.

Then going to a Bob Marley tribute.... in a city where some things are now legal... I'd say everything is gonna be alright!

...if you do not ask the question, "who will be my direct supervisor?" You're doing it wrong. Yes change is inevitable, but slow, gradual, change. Please don't be the guy who broadly appropraites physicts to college football recruiting. The smarter approach is seeing who the coach is going to be before signing. Kudos to dad for protecting his son's best interests as long as legally possible.

This team is proving to be a testament to resilience and GUTS(!!) and I'm loving every minute of it.
