FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.

|4 weeks 3 days ago||uh, on the food||
The food still sucks. The "hot" chocolate is still not hot, the coffee is luke warm, the hot dogs are cold, the fries are cold, the pizza is so very dried out, hard, and cold (probably made in the morning), the pulled chicken sandwich was so overcooked that it was literally mostly charcoal (disgusting), the pulled pork was dry and cold. The food at the stadium is the worst of any that I've ever been in - the concessions at my son's high school and all the other high schools are even better than in Michigan Stadium. The only good food in the stadium is the kettle corn.

I don't smoke marijuana or do any drugs and never have. That being said, maijuana is a natural plant that research shows has many more positives then any potential negatives. It should be legal in every state of the country. The penalty for a first time offender for marijuana shouldn't be more than a 3-5 game suspension. Beyond that is ridiculous.

The money Manny's making isn't going to sustain him for his life and the opportunity to earn such money is very limited (players get old and fade away) - he's not rich and will have to have a plan to earn money after his playing days are over. Further, there are a bunch more like Manny Harris entering the league each year - he will be replaced. However, a high first round draft pick is likely to earn enough money to be rich for life as these guys tend to stick around in the league for years (even if not producing much) and if he managed his money properly will not have do get a regular job in his life. HUGE DIFFERENCE.

I've had Culver's numerous times and never found anything disgusting about it. It is good and way better then McDonald's (the worst, they don't even grill their burgers, seem microwaved) and Burger King. It's certainly not as good as Five Guys or Guys Burgers, but the burgers at Culver's are tasty.

When Harrison went up for that shot, he was pretty open after clearing space for himself and Levert did a great job reaching and extending towards Harrison to contest the shot. Had Harrison not been quite so open for the shot, Levert's starting point in the block attempt is more straight up and he probably does get his fingers on it. Damn it.

That's stupid. Most die-hard fans of any sports team use "we" even though they've never played a second for those teams.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||MSU's campus||
To me, every time I'm on MSU's campus, it feels like I'm in a compound, sort like a prison compound (no joke). Seriously, when I'm there I look forward to getting to Grand River so I can feel free again.

17 year olds don't have the best judgement in the world. I'm sure the mom is looking at the reasons MM is picking state and in her mind, it's not justfied - she thinks he's making a huge mistake. As a parent, it's our obligation to speak up and try to steer our kids out of danger or risk.
Now, the fact that the LOI has to be signed by a parent means that the parent actually does have some control in the process.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||oh ok||
Well, so are thousands of other people and they don't take order from us.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||are you serious?||
The university acts separate from the AD. Boy, people are leveling some really unfounded accusations out there and jumping to some ridiculous conclusions.
Gibbons wasn't all that special (Wile was an excellen fill-in) to the team, so they would have done just fine without him....
|25 weeks 3 days ago||wow||
Hope you've never served on a jury and hope you never do.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||I call||
I call bs on that. Just stop with the idiotic accusations.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||what?||
"who covered up what"? Who said anybody covered up anything?? What a ridiculous jump you made.
He wasn't charged with a crime because they didn't have enough strong evidence. The school's level of evidence required for an expulsion is much lower than the "beyond a reasonable doubt" required by the prosecution.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||lol||
Like the school is profiting from the likenes of Kain Colter.... Maybe if he were more on the level of a Manziel or Clowney. I doubt Kolter would be complaining if he were a projected first or second round draft pick.

A contract is a contract. The contract may have been one-sided but he still signed it anyway. Interesting that the movement is backed by the United Steel Workers of America.

He agreed to play in return for a scholarship, not pay.
|26 weeks 8 hours ago||I don't get it||
So, Campbell decommits because his family didn't get a chance to see Michigan and therefore feels he committed too soon. So, how to fix that? Have them visit Michigan with him. But no, he says he's not even sure he'll take an official?!? The fact that he goes from committed to not sure he'll even official, makes me think the reason he gave isn't the real reason.
|26 weeks 3 days ago||agreed||
I think Borges leaving was just a convenient "out" for him....made it easier to do.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||and||
price per ticket just went up 10- $30/each. I'm tired of rising salaries because it always ends up meaning rising ticket prices. Who the hell needs $30/million a year to PLAY baseball??? Salaries are getting downright insane.

I don't think Mora would leave UCLA for Texas. He's probably just going to use this as an opportunity to boost his pay at UCLA.

I was starting to feel that it might never happen, but it did. Maybe this is the start of my good luck roll, or so I hope.

This is the best news of the day!!
|34 weeks 4 days ago||My thoughts||
The price of everything in the stadium (concessions, souvenirs, etc..) has gone up while the quality and/or quantity has gone down. The food is so disgusting.
My kids always wants snacks/foods and when we buy them they are always stale, cold, burnt, etc... Kettle corn is the only good thing there and this year, the bag is smaller and it costs a dollar more. Pizza is cold, stale - it must sit there at least 4-5 hours before they sell and it costs $9 (used to be $6). I ordered a pulled chicken sandwich - it was cold and so burnt that it was seriously mostly charcoal - $12. The soft pretzels aren't soft at all - they're cold and hard. Now, I could have gone back and gotten my money in return, but I'd miss about 5 minutes of the game at least and it's just not been worth it.
The concessions have gotten worse each year and I just do not understand how Michigan does not care about the quality in its concessions. We're now at the point where we make sure we always eat before the game and only get kettle corn in the stadium.

Surprised Stanford only dropped to 10. I mean USC wasn't even ranked before today...
|36 weeks 3 days ago||wow||
The one attempted block (if you can call it that) by Toussaint was just ridiculous, almost didn't even get a hand on the defender - embarrassing. Green's guy got to the QB too, but he did hold up the defender a couple of seconds at least.
|37 weeks 2 days ago||your letter||
Your letter is good, but I wouldn't complain about the offensive philosophy, as I think whether they play spread of "man ball" isn't the real issue, as they'd have problems regardless.
The issues....It is the inability of the staff to appropriately motivate, teach, and prepare the players so that they can effectively execute a game plan on Saturdays. The offensive game planning is horribly inadequate and in-game adjustments (or lack of them) on offense are baffling. Third, the offensive line is horrendous and there isabsolutely no justifiable reason for it to be that bad - they have gotten worse as the season's gone on. Fourth, Freddy J needs to go - none of the running backs can learn how to block? None???? That's the teacher's fault, not the students.

How about if you only neg a post if THAT post deserves a neg, not another one. You think he's butthurt, huh? Are you a mind reader or psychologist or something? You're one spiteful fella or gal.

Fuck MSU. No congratulations from me!

Michigan state fans are just jealous because they don't have many fans who didn't attend MSU, so they always want to criticize those Michigan fans that didn't go to the school. Many times I've sat in the stands and the first question most pose to Michigan fans is, "did you even go to Michigan?". The reality is those MSU fans wouldn't be MSU fans if they didn't attend the school, where as Michigan fans are Michigan fans regardless.
The Michigan brand is as successful as it is because if it's die-hard fans, most of which didn't attend Michigan. Michigan State's fans are its current and former students and maybe their family and some faculty.
