When it was obvious that the gunners were gonna get there before the ball.

You don't have a duty to Michigan football. Neither do I. The good Lord/Invisible Flying Spaghetti Monster blesses each of us with only about 4,000 Saturdays.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Uh...||
|2 days 8 hours ago||No||
He simply revealed the beard that was always there.
|2 days 9 hours ago||I sort of agree||
It looked to me like the OL did some good things. But that's the frustrating part: even when stuff gets better, it doesn't get better.

Worst. 30 for 30. EVER.
|3 days 7 hours ago||About that..|
|3 days 7 hours ago||Yeah||
If Ricky Doyle is carrying around a bunch of bad weight, then I'm a Ricki Lake special.
|1 week 10 hours ago||Well...||
|1 week 1 day ago||Fun fact||
I actually fixed a broken dryer a few months back. Had to replace the thermal fuse. I was very proud.
Whole damn thing broke like two weeks later... but for a moment, I was a GOD.

Major Lack of WR/TE Depth
Crowd spoke. And the OP has been posting an awful lot of threads.
|1 week 3 days ago||For the last time||
The topic was fine. The problem wasn't that you were trying to shine a light on something important. The problem was that you DIDN'T. DO. THAT. If your idea of "shining a light" is to ask people to discuss PREVIOUS DIARIES, and you don't provide any new information, then sir/ma'am/doctor/reverend/your excellency, I don't know what to tell you. Want to compare Michigan's techniques with those of other FBS programs? Cool. We'll read it. But what you posted was unsupported, conclusory, repetitive, and generally not up to diary standards. End of conversation. /dictator'd
|1 week 4 days ago||It's a gut feel thing||
Generally, a well-written and reasoned post will stay up, as long as the take is within shouting distance of reasonableness. And it usually doesn't have much to do with "support" so much as with people thinking it is a reasonable topic of conversation. You can call it "group-think" if you want (many do), but stuff that is WAY outside the mainstream just leads to fights and retaliation and general pissed-offedness, which gets threads pulled anyway.
I pulled a couple of "Fire John Beilein" threads in the middle of the 2012-2013 season (yes, THAT season) because the opinions expressed were just stupid. Call me the thought police if you wish.
|1 week 4 days ago||Yep||
Especially when there are only five diaries displayed. I hate to see something substantive and well-researched bumped off the page because someone else likes the sound of his own voice.
|1 week 4 days ago||Duh||
I cloned them. At the clonery.
|1 week 4 days ago||FWIW||
There is a permanent thread devoted to the topic, in which the mods painstakingly document their actions and the reasons therefore:
|1 week 4 days ago||DAMMIT MAN||
What part of "secret cabal" did you not understand?
|1 week 4 days ago||Posted below||
But the gist was that Michigan's S&C staff has failed. The problem was that he offered none of that "support" stuff that is all the rage.
|1 week 4 days ago||I just compared them side-by-side||
There are exactly zero substantive changes, save for the title.
|1 week 4 days ago||Indeed||
Sometimes we'll unpublish something (like a rumor that doesn't seem to have much substantiation yet), and then re-publish once more info comes out.
In this case, I re-read the diary, and I feel pretty confident about it.
|1 week 4 days ago||For those curious||
The diary was titled "Why our Strength and Conditioning program failed"
The first sentence was, "Why does our football team look slow and lumbering compared to other teams? Because they've been trained to be slow and lumbering."
He then pointed to two PREVIOUS diaries (without linking, of course) but provided no additional substance.
Jury, what say you?

We only have so much room, and the mice on the treadmills that power this site get tired easily.
|1 week 4 days ago||Ya know||
I was waiting for this thread.
Let's see where it goes.
|1 week 4 days ago||Yep||
Firing the coach makes the team have sucked at football.
|1 week 4 days ago||So||
A recruit sees what I write about X. He either (a) thinks I'm right, which means the real problem is X, not the fact that I WROTE ABOUT X, or (b) think I'm wrong, in which case, why the hell would it matter what random internet guy says?
|1 week 4 days ago||Indeed||
Perhaps a helpful Youtube video or an article about German soccer would provide some illumination.

It's about ethics in message board moderation
|1 week 5 days ago||Sent to Bolivia||
for the remainder of the calendar year. Considered banhammer, but I reviewed his posting history and it seemed moderate. I'll keep an eye on him.
The number of mods/staff, combined with the flood of comments at some points, mean that some terrible stuff will go unseen or unnoticed. We rely on users to point stuff out (especially in the Mod Action Sticky), and we try to react quickly and appropriately.
|1 week 5 days ago||Aaaaaaaaaand the re-post||
What problems do you see with our football players strength and conditioning?
You can't just add "Freedom of Speech" as a tag and expect us to leave something up. That's not how it works. That's not how any of this works.
