Including an "/s" ruins any attempt at sarcasm. And I'm not being sarcastic.

Dont tell me what I should understand jerk. In fact, meet me in the parking lot after the 3 o'clock bell and I'll give you something you need to understand.

Seriously? I can't think of any prominant, recent example that demonstrates how important it is to have 3 talented, game-ready QBs on the roster. Based on Michigan's approach over the past several years, I thought it was only necesary to have 1.

"buyest"? Is this a version of 'bias' in which your favoritism can be bought and sold?

I have no idea who downvoted WD, but I downvoted you for asking.

You should have your thread-starting privileges revoked for a while. Nearly all of those are god-awful.

I will always root for and love Michigan basketball, but I dont think outperforming has been the case this year.

Yeah, if you mean that a tiger does not, and perhaps cannot, lose his stripes between the ages of 18 and 21, then I've got to agree. I know I couldn't at that age. Also, Michigan has taken its fair share of chances in the past several years, with several embarrassing, and even dangerous, outcomes.
|1 week 4 days ago||Yes, people can never be||
Yes, people can never be rehabilitated, their emotional and behavioral problems never corrected. So let's just toss out the basis of our criminal justice system and entire societal domains of psychological counseling and therapy.
But if you mean that a tiger has to try to remove his stripes, through therapy, rather than just waiting for them to fall off, then I agree. Otherwise, it's a mindless cliche.
|1 week 4 days ago||Exactly. There are lots of||
Exactly. There are lots of seemingly smart people in this thread making dumb judgments from an excerpt from an interview molded into a tweet, which is intended to get attention by the tweeter. For all we know, Frank might have followed up "She took it to another level" with, "and she was right to do so." Clark might very well be continuing his reign of idiocy, but we wont know for sure until we hear the whole conversation.

"Do you still feel complete ownership of the blog in that respect or is there a point when the MGoCommunity also owns a piece just given its investment and contribution of material via the mgoboard over time?"
This is a great question, but I dont think it applies only to the sexist material the community produces. In fact, the community produces the community, with little input (but I think a lot of behind the scenes technical management) from Brian. He has created a mostly self-organizing system that is informed by, but ancillary to, his front-page posts. In fact, the community probably dsicusses material from other sites more than it discusses Brian's material - there's just more of it. It's quite the good business model if you can impose rules and norms that keep the community attractive to advertisers - which is the purpose of his post here of course.
|1 week 5 days ago||What did you want them to do||
What did you want them to do - build new buildings to house their erotic toys? Or leave old buildings empty unless they can be used only for non-erotic purposes? Or, seclude any erotic business to a newly constructted part of the city - because, you know, there is just so much land up for grabs in Europe. I think letting the market run its course is a better idea. People will sell what they can, and not sell what people aren't buying. Perhaps the market is better exemplified there than here in the US.

I agree with Google and the puritanical public driving their decision making.
We have a problem in this country with people unabashedly flashing their sexy bits to others, sending them either to the hospital or killing them on the spot. We have seen it many times over on the rough streets of Detroit, Chicago, New York, and LA, we have seen a disturbing rise of sexy bits being explosively released in schools, inflicting abhorrent damage on our youth, and now there is a stiff rise of sexy bits being cavalierly flashed by cops to civilians who have their own sexy bits safely tucked away.
Sexy bits are real problem in society, and a key way to address it is to erect barriers to any hint of their existence on the interwebs. Thank you Google.

Yes, they should not indicate that they are always trying to improve. Just communicate that the NFL is gettign just what they are at the time.

One of the most level-headed, objective, yet considerate and helpful posts I've ever seen entered into MgoBlog. Nice work.

Exactly. There are idiots in every fan base. Some are curiously overlooked, others are curiously held to blame.

I think Weber's mom's attack on UM fans displays either extreme naivete or strategy. Its really simple-minded to hold the actions of a few fans as a proxy for the entire fanbase. She is probably not that simple minded. I suspect that in terms of her son going to UM (or rather not going to UM), she had a solution looking for a problem. She found one and seized it.

Great thread, really making me miss AA. The downtown/State St. area has got to rank near the top of places in the US with the highest density of good resturants per sq. mile.

AAAAhahahahaha! A thread about great resturants and you mention a cheap chain resturant!! Soooo clever!!!

1. I don't follow your logic. You are asking if Jedd Fisch is making less because he will likely jump to the NFL next year? How does that make sense?
2. You upvoted your own post. Just awful. [And yes, I had to look to see who on earth would upvote this post.]

What about d-bag Michigan fans pretending to be OSU fans? Yes, it happens.

Eating at Frita Batidos is very much a social experience. You have to be in the mood for it. I too would often just get take out.

Forgot about Vinelogy. Go during happy hour for great prices on great wines. And completely agree, their smaller plates of pizza and sliders are great. The best sliders in AA.

I love that Red Hawk always has Red's Rye on tap. But I have always found their food extremely underwhelming. Even as I lowered my expectations, they continued to underwhelm.

Frita Batidos. The most flavor you will ever find crammed into one sandwich.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||You can't interpret||
You can't interpret recruiting from an offer sheet. That' s just not how it works. Many top schools throw out offers in a scattershot mode. The big process in recruiting is how much the schools pursue a kid, if they bring him on campus, and so on. An offer sheet is one piece of data, and a very superficial one.
