Its "The Game" because it's the last game of the season between bitter, long-standing rivals. It has persisted as "The Game" in spite of it being at noon, not due in part to it being at noon.
Playing it a noon does it a disservice.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Seriously? Dogs have been||
Seriously? Dogs have been genetically bred over hundreds of years to be happy living with humans. Comparing dogs to un-domesticated animals is silly. But I concede that in situations in which the animal can no longer live in the wild and has a wild-like situation in which to live, that owning an exotic pet is ok. There are no black and whites here.
|4 days 2 hours ago||How can I make a claim that||
How can I make a claim that is a personal opinion? As I stated below, its all a personal choice. Whether eating animals or keeping exotic ones as pets, there are no absolute rules. I feel that its immature and selfish. And I am entitled to that opinion, unless you have some moral objection to that.

It just takes a little alcohol, and then clothes come off!! So no, I'm no fun at parties because nobody likes me naked.
|4 days 2 hours ago||So nobody is really||
So nobody is really addressing the issue. This is not about eating anything - its about humane treatment of animals as pets. And I have to side with Peta on this one - having a wallaby as a pet is immature and selfish.
|4 days 2 hours ago||I am not a vegetarian, but||
I am not a vegetarian, but you do realize how dumb this is, right? People are full of meat, and are animals. So I doubt being an animal and full of meat are reasons to eat something. It really is just a personal decision; absolutes just dont work for issues like this, on either side.

Great! You will certainly represent the Michigan fans as classy folks!

Reading these comments I got the notion that Harbaugh was somewhat at fault. But listening to the interivew I didnt get that at all. This was all on Cowherd. It seemed like at some point he preemptivley decided the interivew was a bust. But it felt premature, and then he backhandedly blamed it on Harbaugh.
In no way will this affect any recruits - that notion is really, really silly. But in no way will Harbaugh ever grant Cowherd another interiview.

I've been very critical of Baumgardner on this blog, but this is a good article that brings new material to light. He deserves credit for this piece.

What the F does his Hoke impersonation have to do with anything? Lets not stretch this further than it can be stretched. I dont think journalists would even tie those two events together.
|1 week 2 days ago||Give us a break. These are||
Give us a break. These are mere pebbles. So far Harbaugh has been great.
|1 week 2 days ago||To be fair, for the vast||
To be fair, for the vast majority of Pipkins' time on campus he, like the rest of the team, was judged on how he practiced, not on what he did in games. So you need a practice-based metric.
|1 week 3 days ago||He is also the most||
He is also the most depressing michigan twitter-er I follow. His in-game comentary is all about how bad Michigan is at sports.
And his writing has not improved since he first started. One would think we would get higher-quality journalists in Ann Arbor.

This 'cousin' joke is not funny. I hope it will end with this thread. If not, I hope all future uses of it will result in auto-negbang.
|1 week 4 days ago||UM doesnt need the||
UM doesnt need the scholarship, so this just seems to be a difference of opinion between Pipkins and the football staff. And It seems like Pipkins has not handled it very well.
|1 week 4 days ago||Either we worry about the||
Either we worry about the long-term heath of players and encourage staff to make these medical-relatd decisions for players (or pressure the players to make their own informed decision), or we let the players make these medical decisions themselves and stop all the fuss about their long term health. Its tough to have it both ways.
|1 week 4 days ago||What a dumb idea. Focus on||
What a dumb idea. Focus on classes and football, not on how to raise odd pets. Something will suffer, and my bet is that it will be the animal.
|1 week 4 days ago||You don't get it. This is||
You don't get it. This is about Harbaugh setting expectations. Your comment is completely off topic.
|1 week 5 days ago||Hmmm, good question. Perhaps||
Hmmm, good question. Perhaps a crossdresser woudl be a goatee since a goatee is really a just a replica of a woman's nether parts?

I have a beard. The only time I 'shave' the beard is when I go to gay bars.

I think anyone who sees this and thinks "sex toy" is who has to go. The mascot itself is fine. Its how you think about it that is kidn of disturbing.

1. Brian should let it go. Brandon is gone and everyone else, save Brian, just wants to move on. Baiting people on twitter about Brandon is tired and self-serving, and on this lone point I agree with Kaiser - Brian should let it go.
2. But Kaiser's "he wins" is douchy, and not accurate according to most fans' definition of what it means to win in this context.
3. WD's inclusion of his own tweet, and the tweets of other Brian-fans, is immature and should be below the standards around here. Twitter reactions of journalists and other professionals is one thing, reactions of other dudes living in thier mother's basements is another.
4. If WD wants to some day work in the big leagues with professionals regarding Michigan sports, he should be careful what he does on tiwtter. It's bush league to insert one's self in these twitter wars that the big boys are engaging in. It doesnt matter which side you are one - if someone is thinking of hiring WD and finds that he has a habit of insulting professionals in public, well, its not a favorable characteristic of a job candidate.

This is about familial relationships. "Controversial" is an odd descriptor. I get it that you are trying to make a joke, but I just dont get what it is.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yes, because talking shit and||
Yes, because talking shit and working hard to improve one's game are mutually exclusive.

But Harbaugh would be the only one out there in full pads. I can't decide if that would be extra-awesome or silly.

Wwwwwwelllllllllllllllll, wwwwellllllllll, you know, wwwwwwellllllllll, you know, in terms of ummmmmm, energy, ummmmm, wwwwwwellllllllll, you know, there was probably no where to go than up after the last coaching staff.

Negged for lack of sources. You are speaking to an intelligent, discerning audience. Have A little respect.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Thank goodness you are||
Thank goodness you are willing to overlook those things. I bet Mr. WIlliams is relieved, and I am sure Mr. Harbaugh will be checking in to make sure he has your blessing before considering offering Mr. WIlliams a spot on the team.

Sorry, but what? That bowl game at the end of that awful 2007 season, which saw Carr, after his last game as a coach, ride victorious across the field on the shoulders of his players, was way more than an exhibition game. By your definition, any bowl game that did not lead to being crowned national champions was a mere exhibition game.
