|6 days 23 hours ago||I remember...||
I remember how apprehensive I was when Hackett was hired, for no other reason than what Brandon put us through. It didn't take long for him to sooth my fears and eventually prove to be the legend we now know him to be. Harbaugh, Nike, what will be next...I love this man and what he has done for UM during his short tenure. What a guy!!
|1 week 5 days ago||Seriously...||
I've been a memeber since '08 and seen a crap ton of hype videos but that is the best one I've seen. Well done my friend!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah...but you insinuated he||
Yeah...but you insinuated he had clinical depression which IS a real thing and something he probably doesn't have. There's a difference between feeling a little down and being clinically depressed. I think what you're referring to is the psychology aspect of the game of football, which is certainly a component of players performance, but that's not clinical depression .
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Well for starters...||
he could have glossed over the fact that they have been terrible for the past few years. Not that I want new coaching staffs to be overly critical of the previous regime that they replaced, but some honesty is nice. He didn'tsay "well, the special teams weren't in bad shape but we will make a few small changes to see if we can improve". What he said was basically that they've been terrible and he wants to fix them. To me, like the OP, I find that kind of straight talk refreshing. Enough glossing over just how poorly we've been. The first step in fixing a problem is admitting that there is one, and that's something the previous staff never did.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah...||
well Irish papers are saying Ohio is a bunch of perverts! So take that Ohio paper!!
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I think your room got booked||
I think I saw your advert and when I went back to try and book it it was no longer there. Damn, I wish I had checked back on the thread earlier! Thanks for the tip though.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks a bunch!||
I totally forgot to try Anr BNB and now we have lots of options. Thanks!
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I should state...||
That we are from Nova Scotia so seafood is something we get tons of here. The poster was correct that I would prefer something unique to AA.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Our seats||
We are in row 40 section 34 (on the advice of some of the posters...Thanks for that by the way). I was thinking of a sit down place. I'm not a huge deli fan, more of a full meal type of person. I like most food (indian, thai, greek...anything really). so suggestions would be great.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||You guys are all awesome!!!||
I love everybody right now!! But seriously, thank you. Any can't miss restaraunts I need to visit while there?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||OMG!!||
Harbaugh doesn't get the rivalry!!! He thinks every game is as important as the OSU game! Fire this man immediately!!!
|6 weeks 4 days ago||We're not wrong...||
no one said (at least I don't think anyone did) that you need to have a concussion in order to develop CTE nor did anyone say that if you had a concussion you would definitely end up developing CTE. But to say they don't correlate means there is no correlation and that is clearly not true.
There is an increased incidence of CTE in people who have had a traumatic brain injury when compared to those people who haven't and thus, there is a correlation. Maybe we just disagree on what correlation means....
If your chances of developing CTE are increased by sustaining a traumatic brain injury, is that not the very definition of a correlation? Is a concussion not a traumatic brain injury?
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Dude...||
what are you talking about? Concussions and CTE don't correlate? Many very smart individuals (all of whom specialize in medicine) would disagree with you. Many believe concussions are a precursor to CTE...
|7 weeks 1 day ago||But you're putting words in my mouth...||
I never said it was a bad thing, i simply implied there are better things. Also, I didn't say they should give these people handouts, because that never works, as you point out. What I'm talking about is developing social programs to get these people back on their feet and into the workforce. I'm not advocating giving this money to charities. I'm saying there are ways to combat homelessness and hunger and that money in the right peoples hands could go a long way in doing that.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Obviously...||
obviously you're one of those people who, you know...has a home to live in and food on your table. I would bet that to those many millions of individuals who dont have those things it makes a big difference. I'm not talking about going past a homeless person and dropping a dollar in their coffee cup, I'm talking about finding real solutions to the problem. You think giving money to a business school is more valuable than that? I guess we just disagree, which is fine.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I agree...||
but would go even further and ask why give it to a university at all? Why not try and end world hunger or homelessness or something. A number of years ago now Ted Turner was interviewed and challanged the worlds billionaires to donate half their fortunes to elmnating world hunger. He stated that if only the billionaires did this it could elimintae it completely. The sad fact is most rich people are rich because they are ruthless and greedy. I do believe he donated half his fortune though...
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah...||
I think it's pretty clear from the grammar used on those tweets that it is definitely from Mr. we don't come here to play school. At least he was honest about that. From his grammar no one will dispute that he is most assuredly not playing school down there in Columbus.
|13 weeks 2 hours ago||All I have to say....||
Is good riddance. Not our problem anymore thank goodness!
|13 weeks 2 hours ago||So by your definition...||
Being the CEO of a major company and drving said company into the ground is being a saavy business man? I wish I had you grading my performance!
|13 weeks 4 days ago||I don't know....||
I live in a place where people of every color live in relative harmony and haven't witnessed what many people on this board have in my life so maybe I'm just naive or ignorant, but because racism here is so rare I don't even know the real definition of it.
My question is if you state something that is based in fact is it racist? I mean, at least where I'm from, no other ethnic group names their children things that seem to have been pulled out of thin air other than African Canadians. I'm sorry but I don't think acknowledging that is racist, its just the way it is.
Of course there are silly names in all cultures, but they are generally considered names like Peabody or Gaylord or Garfield...That is different than someone simply throwing a bunch of letters together and calling it a name like Rontavius or JaMicheal (and those are actually pretty tame. My wife works for an OB/GYN and the names people come up with are incredible).. Look back through history and see when this phenomenon of crazy names began and it wouldn't be until the last 40 years, so saying they are part of their culture is a very big stretch.
I want to be clear that the last paragraph was more to the guy above you and not in relation to your post.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||It was a bit hairy||
Now that they are 7 the physical demands have lessened while the emotional/psychological demands have increased 10 fold. I keep telling myself it can't get any worse only to find out it can. Oh well, only another decade or so before they mature...I hope!
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah right...||
I don't know who wrote that book but that idea is complete and utter BS. When you look at the most successful people throughout history (and most wealthy people) you begin with royalty who until the last couple of centuries have been the wealthies people. They have always used familial names hence Henry1-8 etc. The nobles, who were also among the wealthiest also followed that philosophy.
Even today you look at the people that are successful for their brains rather than athletic ability or looks and you find tons of Richards, Williams (Bills), Stephens etc etc etc. The only group of successful people I know with crazy names athletes.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||I didn't...||
We had quadruplets almost 7 years ago and our naming rules were simply: They had to be names people wouldn't make fun of, have some familial connection and thought had to be given to how it would sound when people called them by name when they were adults. See, some names sound pretty cute for babies, but when you imagine calling a grown person that name it sounds ridiculous.
I thought having four at once would make naming easy since we could pick four names instead of one, but it ended up being extremely difficult. Prior to having my own children I never realized how important naming your child is. It is one of the few things that will stay with them throughout their life time and never change (well, for most people).
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks for the info...||
and of course for the laughs!
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Please don't think me||
Please don't think me ignorant, but as a Canadian I'm always confused when it comes to your two holidays. Is this the one for living Vets or for the soldiers who died. Honest question, no disrespect intended.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||I think some people...||
Just refuse to believe or simply don't understand that there are hunders more 2-3 star recruits than 4-5 star. I don't get how they can't see that this is validation.
I guess maybe if someone put numbers to how many 4-5 stars went undrafted as opposed to how many 2-3 stars did, maybe then they would believe that stars are indeed a good indicator of talent.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||+1 insightful.....You mean to||
You mean to tell me this either means Brown is coming so he's taken us off his list or that Williams took us off his list for other reasons??? You can really read the tea leaves my friend!! .
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah that's right...stick up||
Yeah that's right...stick up for the abusive clown who beat up and threatened his woman. Who cares if someone who did something similar got less in the past. Maybe this is just a sign that they are going to start taking this kind of crap more seriously. I'd kick the punk out of the league for good, but then I have a big issue with women beaters...
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Edmonton....where number one||
Edmonton....where number one picks go to die....some have individual success, but why anyone would want to play for that front office is beyond me. Worst in the NHL by far.
|29 weeks 5 days ago||I'd have to say that your writing was the problem.||
the only subject in your post was Georgia, you didn't even mention UCLA once. Therefore I don't think it is a stretch for someone to assume that you're talking about Georgia and not UCLA. I'm just saying; making fun of someone for comprehension problems when you wrote an ambiguous post is pretty "shady" if you ask me.
