Kind of. Lots of people I know aren't fans of the mega-boxes for the wealthy. The additional facilities around the stadium were welcome and needed, however.

"Never mind that he clearly played hurt."
Well, now we know. IMO it was never clear that he was playing hurt during the season.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Amish Mafia||
Was the show that pushed me over the edge. So fake. Had been thinking of going w/o cable for a while and that show pushed me to finally get rid of cable TV entirely.
Over-the-air TV and Netflix are fine w/me. Sports are an issue but there are several alternatives to paying $60 or more a month, especially when you just want to watch just one or two things a week.
Cut the cord and never look back.
Think of it this way - less TV - more time on MGoBlog!

I'm not that surprised by this. IMO you'll see more guys doing this, playing for a few seasons, getting some money, then quitting before they do serious harm to themselves.

"370 homes have been constructed on the earthen dam."
I'm not a civil engineer, but that strikes me as a bad idea, in general.

That show used to scare the hell out of me. Something about the music and Nimoy's voice... didn't help that the subject matter was usually something "spooky" or unusual...

Wow. 10 posts. That has to be a record.

Some weren't too bad. But don't ever mess with the winged helmet.
As an aside, while looking at some photos of Zach Gentry playing , and noticed that one of the teams he played against had winged helmets but the colors were black and silver. Looked cool to me.

Unfortunately this confirms my belief that the team, under Hoke, got big, athletic, yet slow. Do we even have a deep threat WR at this point?
|5 weeks 2 days ago||The one thing about Brandon||
I have zero problems with the "Failure" post. Truth hurts sometimes.
The one thing about Brandon that sent me over the edge was the revelation that he was forcing people out of the athletic department for petty reasons just so he could replace them with "His" people. Brian Cook said in one of his podcasts that longtime equipment manager John Falk was forced out, and now we know who likely did the forcing.
Nick Roumel, aka Counterpunt, also stated on this blog that his "firm represented a few" of the people who were fired by Brandon. So we can assume that there was at least 1 wrongful dismissal lawsuit filed against the university.
Brandon got Brandon fired, period.

Is our Brian Cook a pro wrestling fan? Phrases like "turning heel" and "cheap heat"?

Metal is much deeper and intellectual than people give it credit for.

I don't want to hear "In the Big House" by Pop Evil. I don't want to hear "In Da Big Hizz-ay" by Random Rapper. I don't want to hear "Big House bay-bee" by Generic Pop Singer.
I want to hear "Touchdown, Michigan!" from the announcer's booth and the Victors played by the band.
Michigan football doesn't need "Wow factor." It needs winning teams.
I swear Dave Brandon called these guys and told them "hey I've got a great idea for you" as his revenge for getting the boot.

No, relax. Just channel your inner 14 year old boy and join in the humor.

|6 weeks 4 days ago||stay home when you are sick!||
Had a nasty cold in December. This was largely because of a coworker who missed 2 days, came in coughing and sneezing everywhere, then missed another 2 days. Surprise surprise, day or two later I start having symptoms.
Edit: Seems to me the people who "never get sick" are the ones who drop dead about 2 months after they retire. You've been warned.

Crap like this is why engineering students look down on LS&Players.

Can we just call him Wayne or just Lyons, because the name "Wayne Lyons" just makes me think of Wayne Fontes :)
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Frankly I'm surprised the kid||
Frankly I'm surprised the kid would stay. Not saying I wish him to come here, but after getting duped by the Ohio staff like that, you'd think he'd be pissed off enough to do something about it.
His HS coach is certainly upset enough about it.

This means something!
|6 weeks 6 days ago||All I'm going to say if that||
All I'm going to say if that I was in his situation I'd be looking for the nearest exit. Ohio clearly played him for a fool and if he stays, well, he's just basically asking for more abuse.

I never recall anyone saying they got "raped by a test".
I do recall people saying they "Screwed the pooch" on an exam.
I also recall having headaches after certain exams.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||And what are the punishments||
And what are the punishments for saying naughty things?
I think this is overreaching and the signing of pledges to remind others to self-censor reminds me of Orwell.
Freedom of speech includes the right to say offensive things; what truths you may have to hear may upset you.
