This falls afoul of a popular convention here of "no religion."
I will be "revising my hypotheses."
|1 day 23 hours ago||I thought||
even a tire fire in a molten glass ashtray should have gotten a fourth year, because the worst thing would be UM acting like ND.
I wasn't quite ready to forgive Harbaugh's '07 remarks and DUI in '11, although I was starting to come around.
The long strange journey from '07 Appy State to now has sandblasted quite a few of my ideas about what is best for Michigan football.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Wierd, but true.||
In what other connection will you get grown men to parse between scarlet, garnet, crimson, cardinal, maroon, (or heliotrope and puce, per Purchase College ca. 1975) and more?

But what rhymes with "Shanecussionghazi?"

how to hire Harbaugh.

you don't think I've worn my 15 minutes out yet.

Number 2 on your list was covered starting in 2011. They were just called "the Syrian resistance" then.

I'll fit this in here -- this is my email exchange from 2010, with an introductory note to Brian:
I suppose it's a rare privilege for a member of the general public to get to interact so directly with someone at that level, but this one galls me all the more now:

he doesn't need a map to find his way around Ann Arbor.

like the word "Evil." Stupid, bigoted, clueless, small-minded, cowardly, vicious, vindictive, unjustifiably complacent, intellectually dishonest and vile-tempered bags of snot are just as easily capable of pronouncing or printing the term and, often enough to be confusing, using it as the correct part of speech in a complete sentence as is anyone else.
Therefore, it is rendered only contextually relevent, and its correct use in a sentence is, in and of itself, no proof of the existence of intelligent life.

are people, too!"
Did you make that up? If I want to use that as a signature line, how should I cite it?
|6 days 1 hour ago||After all,||
we played OSU/Meyer improbably close twice with Hoke and with a QB in traction.
The secret is supposed to have been Mattison's stunting of DL formations to break up OSU's run game. We should still have that going for us, and a lot more.
|6 days 1 hour ago||I still||
have happier memories of 1995 and 1996 than of 2006 or 1972-3-4-5.

would not have gone to a bowl even if they had won.
Neither would Michigan if they had won the following year.
1972 (1973 Rose bowl) was the first year a Big Ten team could have repeated.
As we all know, 1973 (1974 Rose Bowl) was the first year any Big Ten team did.

she knows him well from having spent her entire adult life with him.
Just a guess.

But the Buddy Rich tapes, I think, rank at this level:
I think the worst, though, would be "The AD and I were looking at game film together,"

1974 throwbacks, but with a kicking game.
|1 week 3 days ago||Jim Harbaugh||
is like a shot of Jack Harbaugh followed by a blast of cocaine?
Reminds me of characterizations of Jimmy Hendrix as a shot of rhythm and blues followed by a hit of acid.

If you're familiar with the "no religion" argument, you see that board behavior reveals an unwritten set of rules only loosely similar to the MGoFAQ.

leave your impunity in the shed and use a rubber hose instead, it won't leave any marks.
For fairness' sake, first check to see if she is bearing a fake ID that shows her to be 23 years of age, just in case. Kids do the strangest things.

Make mine dark blue.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Lots of people||
love Michigan football without obsessively hijacking threads to express their hatred of RR.
Let the record show that it is the haters getting things started once again.

turns to audience while getting booed in production of King Lear and says "Excuse me, but I didn't write this shit."

Brandon deserves to be credited on a similar level to that of Jed York for our current good fortune?
I'm sure if we had had Harbaugh the last four seasons, we would have been in better shape even in a transistion than we were after the Brady-Brandon years.

Since the Stanford game on September 20, 1975.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Since you picked that quotation||
from the OP about how "freaky statistical things happen like that in close proximity," I have a bone to pick with this reasoning process.
People always seem ready to misconstrue clustering of random phenomena, but "random" does not mean "regularly distributed." A series of coin flips resulting in a regular alternation of heads and tails is just as unlikely as is all heads or all tails; any of these is a description of a discrete case out of the 2^N potential outcomes of N number of coin flips. The outcome of any coin flip has no bearing on the outcome of that following.
By the same token, 0-16 happening a few years back has by itself no bearing on whether it happens again now. Commentary on clustering of random phenomena with expressions implying a narrative of causation, such as "we're hot" or "we're due," is evidence of people's fundamental discomfort with or incomprehension of randomness, clustering or no clustering.
