|4 weeks 8 hours ago||You haven't looked to hard||
You can't find anybody who cares about college sports? Last ime I checked, the sports bars aren't empty on Saturday afternoons in the fall
|4 weeks 23 hours ago||I hpe you are right||
No doubt we'll do right by the people in this disaster, but I fear we won't do enough to limit the impacts of the next one
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Would be nice to see your rationale for downvoting||
Are you suggesting there is no point to a serious dialogue about whether we can do more to reduce the devastation of future disasters?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Who would downvote this?||
Disagrree - sure. Downvote, that is the sign of an insecure, smallminded person
|4 weeks 1 day ago||How small-minded are you?||
To downvite something suggesting we should all do more?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Its good to see how open minded some can be.||
Heaven forbid one suggests we do more than donate and pray and actually try to do things to minimize tge devastation of future disasters. If it doesn't fit in my worldview, it must be downvoted and labeled as flamebait.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||If by every way we can you mean||
Donate money and maybe even have some kind of music benefit, you are probably right.
If you mean have a serious dialogue about what we can do to limit the impact of future severe weather events, I highly doubt it.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||There is lots more we could discuss||
But it would cross the no politics rule. There is lots more you can do than just pray and donate.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Brian was wrong about RR and wrong about Hoke||
I suspect he'll be wrong about this too
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Any chance you'll sell e-versions?||
I'd much rather have an e-version than a hardcopy
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Not sure that is a representative sample||
Is it surprising that people who go listen to Brian are ones that tend to agree with his opinion?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||So it would have been better||
If the big ten didn't do what everyone wanted them to do? And that would have given you more hope they'd get it right the third time around?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||East coast alums - the $ part of the equation hat gets ignored||
Everyone focuses on tv money, but I suspect that this will significantly increase giving by east coast alums. I can't wait to go to College Park to see Michigan play
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Or we could welcome Andrew to the Michigan family||
And just leave his dad out of it all together
|7 weeks 1 day ago||His son on the other hand||
Might be disappointed to find out that a bunch of Michigan fans are kinda dicks
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Great third post (s)||
Way to show support for someone who's just signed up to put in four years to help make our team better
|7 weeks 1 day ago||You make me proud to be a Wolverine (s)||
Is there any reason for your post? Why is it remotely relevant what you think of his daddy? If you really supported Andrew, you wouldn't feel compelled to curse about his dad in a post welcoming him to the University.
The quote in your profile is quite ironic, because your senseless post looks like it was written by a street urchin, not by someone with any character.
I hope that if Andrew decides to check out Mgoblog to see what people think about his decision, he realizes that many Wolverines are much more classy.
Walkons like Andrew are an important part of thebteam and will be a part of our future success. Andrew could have a key role from day 1, when Beilein may take Derrick Walton aside and have Andrew run the second team so that Walton can stand back and see how Spike handles the first team. He may run the second team when Walton or Spike have the flu and can't practice and at some point in his career he could play a key role when a second string PG is injured and the first string point gaurd runs into foul trouble.
I for one am very excited about this addition to the Wolverine family and am excited that he ad parent's who were supportive of his decision to come to the greatest University in the world.

|10 weeks 5 days ago||Agree wholeheartedly on the ebook option||
Would love to get an e-book version rather than a hardcopy

For a Federal Agency to collect money
|15 weeks 3 days ago||How is asking a serious question||
|15 weeks 3 days ago||To whoever moderated this as flamebait||
Was! i not respectful enough in criticizing Brian?
Am I not allowed to critisiize him at all?
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Feel free to neg this one away||
Posed in the wrong place
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Off-topic?||
It answers in the post right above it
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Another really negworthy post?||
Some of you are amazing with your moderation
|15 weeks 3 days ago||How is this flamebait?||
It responds respectfully to the post right above it
|15 weeks 3 days ago||How is this off-topic?||
Love the way people on this blog moderate
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Think it would require legislation||
My understanding is that in general, charging any sort of user fee requires legislation. Furthermore, using any money generated for a specific purpose rather than just having it returned to the general treasury would also require legislation.
Which is not to say it's a bad idea, just a complicated one to implement, when one of the basic arguments is, should the deficit be reduced solely through cuts or through a mix of cuts and revenue increases.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I may be wrong||
And I've been accused on this very blog of having no sense of humor, but isn't the comment, "hey look an airplane" mocking people who like flyovers? I guess it could be sarcasm, but I don't think the poster you are ridiculing is ridiculous for taking it at its word that the commenter who said both, "flyovers are stupid" and "hey look, an airplane." may in fact actually think that flyovers are stupid.
