"Are there no other topics to talk about? I know this is the offseason, but jebus people are just reaching to get into arguments apparently."

"With the exception of Gibbons"
You can't jsut throw out the primary example. Hoke's handling of Gibbons was vastly more questionable than any of Meyer's questionable handling of players. In today's climate of anti-sexual assault, Hoke f-ed that up, royally. And I think it calls his character into question. Although ultimately PR doesnt matter, if you want to say it does, then Meyer has the edge here. Actually, he has the whole blade.

OSU obviously leads in all relevant categories (PR is irrelevant).
OSU has gone through one coaching change since 2001 (the Fickell year doesnt count). UM has gone through 2 since 2008. OSU brought in a proven winner. UM brought in an unproven coach who is using UM to prove himself. Those are the key differences in terms of where these programs are.

Once I forced myself to read his annoying one-line sentences (did he teach this in his class?), all I took away was a collection of lines that are loosely connected to each other, all trying to make some larger point that its the AD's fault in addition to technology. Which made it all feel like the workings someone who feels he as been wronged by "the system." Next thing you know, Bacon is going to be sending special packages in the mail to the AD.

Wow, perhaps I exaggerated. Thanks for the neg and the beat down. I hope you feel better about yourself. I guess you needed it.

I actually do keep forgetting about that change. There is a little ray of hope there. Thanks for the reminder.

I unfortunately think Hoke has alread passed the tipping point. Which is quite unfortunate for the UM football program, which may not recover for decades. A Hoke turn-around now would be a major, major turn-around. It can happen, but its probably not going to.

Is it just me or do her breasts look smaller when unburdened of their encumbrances? Looks like a nice C cup here, but I would have sworn she was a solid D.
|8 weeks 6 hours ago||Straw man much? Nobody said||
Straw man much? Nobody said there was cuasation or correlation between those sayings and performance. They are just tired of living in a present that is antipodal to the past captured in those sayings. They want those sayings to reflect the present as well. Perhaps you are the one who should stop bitching about your own fantastical correlation, which nobody is making.

Talent for making plays in college systems is not equivalent enough to the assessment of talent for the NFL draft, for the latter to be a proxy. Close, but not close enough.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||This conversation is about||
This conversation is about college-level play, not NFL-level. How many data points do we have to have before people stop using the NFL draft as a proxy for the ability to win at the college level?
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Congrats on going to college.||
Congrats on going to college. College can be a great equalizer if you take advantage. All of a sudden, all the benefits others had while living at home don't matter so much. Keep the partying to a reasonable level, work your ass off, and doors will start creaking open for you.

Are you going to UM for college? I hope you got in with all that devotion.

Sam was not cut out to be a RB. Period. He ran way to upright. And he didn't really have the vision to be a slot, or a good return guy. He just doesnt really fit anywhere.

So LSUfreak can take a movie clip and put different faces on the actors' faces? Ok. Without any clear meaning underlying the choice of clip or the choice of faces, the whole thing is, well, meaningless.
My guess is LSUfreak just wants to show off his skills at putting faces with different expressions on actors. I am very, um, impressed.

There is a difference between not shying away from a normal amount of competition, and shying away from too much competition. The world is not black and white, as a Huff, a teenager, tried to explain.

That is god-awful, but well done. Is this a product of some Univeristy PR department?

Is this a Franklin quote? Do you have the source? He seems like a class A D-bag.

Wouldn't you need 2013 vs. 2006 for the comparison to be meaningful in terms of 2014?

I think you can shift all of those down: 6 = gone. 7 = probably gone. 8 = probably safe. 9 = definitely safe for a year. 10 = safe for a while.
8 or 9 win seasons will never be good enough at Michigan. I hope.

Yes, but if you get caught having smoked it while attempting to play basketball, they send you to Guantonimo prison because it's just so much worse.

I feel let down that a someone of my species could string words together in such a way to communicate something so idiotic.

Even for pot? In this day and age? Absurd. Do they test for alcohol? Is a player allowed to responsibly have a beer or a glass of wine every now and then? Ok. Testing for pot is anachroniistic and illogical.

I dont think its as big of a deal for a major D1 program to lose to the likes of App State anymore. Thanks, in part, to us. But also thanks to VT and a few others. The problem I think you are getting at is that it will be seen as a trend for Michigan. Big programs will lose to middling teams every now and then. But I think we will be the first big program to do so twice (three times now?) in recent history. It will be an enormous huge blow for Michigan. This issue I see is that it will be so big that firing Brandon, Hoke, and the rest will likely not repair it. Yes, they would, and should, lose their jobs, but the sad thing is that the mental model will have been set in the national mind and therefore in the minds of recruits, and the program would not likely recover for many years.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Set the bar really low, and||
Set the bar really low, and posts that are greater than monumentally dumb look ok. Its the same logic that gives us sad statements like losing to OSU is a way of "the universe trying to right itself." I think Michigan fans are at an all-time low. At least in the RR years we had hope. Right now, I don't think we have much hope.

It's the accumulation of posts like this that makes Brian go off every now and then. They might not be the immediate trigger, but they must lay the groundwork. Just visiting the board once a day these days makes me want to water torture myself.

Another stain on the Michigan fotoball program. Another step downward. Hoke was intentionally misleading....scratch that. Let's be honest, Hoke lied. He should be reprimanded. And, with a new President coming in, he ought to be worried about more than that if this thing continues to blow up.
