1. I hope you are being literal and there's not some assinine double standard in your post.
2. Political posts will get political answers. Dont post political stuff.
|1 week 1 day ago||One thing I remember from||
One thing I remember from Hoke before he departed was a comment about how good a football player Isaac was. He seemed to be hinting at something in his avuncular manner.
Isaac wins the starting job. Then Green. Then Smith.

A women's football game before the men's game. They would play a women's team from the same university the men's team is playing. Which would likely require making women's football an official AD sport, or at least an intramural one. Which would be great.

"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for a food critic, I can tell you I am not one. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people who coach football. If you forfit now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will beat you."

If this were my kid I would immediately boot the dog off of him, try to console the kid, all while trying to hold back uproarious laughter.

I highly doubt Harbaugh really like this resturant. He's making that up for the benefit of recruiting. And is he really in Paris? I doubt it. This is probably photoshopped to influence recruits. Everyone knows recruits want to play for coaches who travel to Paris.
Further, is that really Harbaugh's wife? If so, it's probably an arranged marriage to have a hot wife who attract recruits.
Contrived, so very contrived.
|1 week 5 days ago||If you think his actions are||
If you think his actions are contrived, then you dont know Harbaugh. You, Mr. Reporter, dont know your subject. He may be an odd duck, but the last thing he is is contrived.
|1 week 5 days ago||Interesting write up. What||
Interesting write up. What would make it more compelling is if you posted pictures of running backs not displaying the issues you describe. Something that allows visual comparison.

I am not sure what a Michigan Man is exactly, but I do know that are you not one.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||A high school kid's parents||
A high school kid's parents are calling the shots for him. Why is that automatically a bad thing? The best we can say now is that maybe that's what is happening. And if it is, you can't tell whether that's good or bad unless you are somehow deepely connected with his family.

Thanks for suggesting I waste my time reading that.

The worst things in that video are
1. Man punching woman
2. Woman pushing/punching/whateverthatwas man
3. Bartender wearing coveralls without a shirt

Love Chengelis. Now Mlive is going to put out a full driveling story for each of these points over the next few days.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Its "The Game" because it's||
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.
|3 weeks 3 days 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.
|3 weeks 3 days 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.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||It just takes a little||
It just takes a little alcohol, and then clothes come off!! So no, I'm no fun at parties because nobody likes me naked.
|3 weeks 3 days 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.
|3 weeks 3 days 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.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Great! You will certainly||
Great! You will certainly represent the Michigan fans as classy folks!
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Reading these comments I got||
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.
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||What the F does his Hoke||
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.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Give us a break. These are||
Give us a break. These are mere pebbles. So far Harbaugh has been great.
|4 weeks 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.
|4 weeks 2 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.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||This 'cousin' joke is not||
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.
|4 weeks 3 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.
|4 weeks 3 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.
|4 weeks 3 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.
