Funny you mention it...I've lived in two countries ignorant people refer to as "third world" (an outdated and naive term with enormous racial/prejudicial connotations).
I've also spent a significant amount of time in Damascus, Syria (not exactly Iran, but I bet about the same to you). Does that mean my comments are now valid in your eyes?
No, I know it's debatable. However, it's coincidental (not ironic) that you'd use such hyperbole.
I have no problem with people being ejected for disruptive, inappropriate behavior; and if you're doing something dumb you should pay the price. On the other hand, such "preventative punishment" is prudish, and in my mind goes too far.
My friend threw the bottle in the trash voluntarily, was totally compliant with the police, and simply wanted the matter closed. Dragging him out and mocking him went beyond my sense of what's right, and certainly went beyond what I've experienced in other countries. Meanwhile, as mentioned in these comments, someone observed entirely out of bounds behavior by a dude who clearly should have been booted but was allowed to stay.
I'm certain all of the actions and reactions discussed won't stop any of these people from doing similarly again.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||speaking from experience...||
I have a friend (40 yrs old, normally dressed and relatively sober) who got kicked out of the stadium 3 minutes after entering, 30 minutes before kickoff. It seems the ole Jim Beam traveler doesn't just get tossed in the trash if the cops see it, the dude carrying the traveler also gets kicked out. Pretty harsh. Most annoying, the cop asked my friend "so how much did you pay for your ticket?" Hopefully the cop spent the game dealing with drunks and never had a chance to watch the game. With that kind of police state, I'm surprised the numbers are so low.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||curmudgeon location?||
Yeah, Fox and Hound sucks for many demographics, particularly, say, ones who take the game seriously and don't feel like listening to chicks jabber on about nothing when the game is on the line, or dummies who cheer/remark over every single thing that happens. I'm all for a discussion of an alternate location for the serious fans; the ones who are going to pound a dozen beers while staring intently with clenched jaw until the real critical moments occur.... then go absolutely apeshit, if and when appropriate.
Who's with me? You don't have to be an old dude in years, but it helps.
Otherwise, you'll find me at Fox and Hound, well fed beforehand because the food sucks, complaining about the beer selection because this is an awesome beer town and that corporate joint doesn't represent, annoyed by the dummies, taking walks to light up if the stress gets too much, and making a total fucking scene if all goes as we all hope!!!!
GO BLUE BABY!!!
|3 years 42 weeks ago||i don't get it||
a. How can you overlook something 7 months in the future?
Jeebuz, this is not a good thread.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||priorities?||
Agreed, no need to overbooze. What you want to be doing is focusing on getting laid, not getting drunk. You have decades of time to get drunk with the boys. The years of easily pursuaded college girls paying any attention to you vanish more quickly than shot number 10 on the night of your bday. Remember this day for something special, like a bj in the Ashley's bathroom! It is your birthday, ask a girl for something special.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||granderson||
Man oh man, I'd hate to see Granderson go, love the dude, but I think you have to do it for the right price. The current team is, sadly, done. There's just too much dead weight on that team: Guillen, Bonderman, Robertson, Willis, Maggie (Man that's a ton of cash pissed down the drain), and there's not enough offensive production. While Granderson did have a few, a precious few, big hits down the stretch, the numbers don't pan out. As a #7 hitter maybe, but lets not forget we may still have Everett, Laird and Inge erasing any hope of a hit out of the bottom 1/3 of the lineup. Where the hell are we going to hide another weak bat?
I really hate to say it, but deal him for a great 2B/SS prospect (with some extra thrown in), and I'd sadly accept it (cheering for him where ever he ends up-- cept the Yanks, of course).
|4 years 3 weeks ago||woah, easy there||
Magnus: "You can take the boy out of Pahokee..."
That's just wrong, man. There are a hell of a lot more kids who come out of that troubled area, transcend their challenges and make a go of it as a college student-athlete than there are players who get themselves in trouble.
stereotype much? Please, be careful. Thanks.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||it's not if, it's how...||
how do i kill myself?
|4 years 13 weeks ago||yankees||
I'd prefer facing the Yanks in a 5 game series as opposed to a 7 gamer any day of the week. Look what it did for us a few years back. Win 1 of 2 in the Bronx, come home, wrap it up, get the hell to the next round.
Plus I like Verlander or Jackson in the game 4 and 5 slots (in either order). I don't think we have the offense to battle them for 7 games.
Roll on Tigers! Roll on!
What a great weekend to be a fan of Michigan sports!
|4 years 13 weeks ago||touche!||
as long as he's either pissed on or his hair is on fire, i'm good.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||don't care||
what do I care? that dude, his co-worker (I'm showing restraint), and his paper are dead to me. I hope he picks against michigan every game of the season, and I hope he's wrong every damn time.
I wouldn't piss on his head if his hair was on fire.

|4 years 31 weeks ago||3-9||
"I do not believe they have fully adjusted to their new recruiting reality... But I also don’t think that they realize they can recruit a fast, fast, fast, tall or at least not short slot receiver yet (and lots of other recruiting possibilities as well.)"
You're drinking the maize and blue Kool-Aid. I drink it too, but come on man.
3-9, new coach, different system, program on the decline, a series of recent recruiting class flops... what do you expect?
Listen, there are a lot of good teams, with good history and reputation out there who can go 9-3, 8-4 every year, like Lloyd could. I know, I know, the helmets. They get you a player or two. But Jesus Christ, you make it sound like we're USC, LSU or Florida.
I think RR has been a rockstar of a recruiter. Take a look at our O-line next season. That's the place to start filling the cupboard and he nailed it. Next will have to be the D, where, if you'll note, Lloyd was good a getting one, one single good recruit per season. Where'd that leave us?
CARLOS FREAKING BROWN! I'd take last seasons recruiting class over many of the recent years prior. I think that tells you all you need to know.
|4 years 32 weeks ago||LMFAO||
You are talking about Sparty right? The east lansing sparty?
Sparty dude. Sparty.

hack a shaq is for pussies. i for one am eternally grateful JB never even considered that. he's a man. be a man, don't be desperate. jeezus.
|4 years 38 weeks ago||you're right...||
so true. for example, I emailed the article to a huge UT friend of mine. His response? "I'm starting to really like Kiffin."
Personally, I wouldn't mind too much if RR took a few shots at TransSweaterVestite but I don't mind keeping it above the fray.
|4 years 40 weeks ago||oh man||
do i have to make another stupid joke to get y'all off the stupid topic? are tort reform conversations next?
ah hell, here we go...
is that columbus? i doubt it. if it was we'd see a trashcan in the photo and a bunch of 'students' would be eating out of it.
is that columbus? the only thing that long in columbus is line outside a cheerleaders dorm room.
is that columbus? oh yeah, thanks for those awesome years of 2004-2008.
is that columubus? must be, I think I see sweatervest tongue kissing his kitten in one of those windows.
|4 years 40 weeks ago||no surprise||
no surprise columbus dudes are talking up their town as bigger than it really is. that's routine for them, their girlfriends hear it all the time.
|4 years 40 weeks ago||columbus?||
wow, i didn't realize that shit town had multi-story buildings. the only thing i thought got stacked on top of each other in columbus were football players in the shower.
are you sure that's columbus? I don't see any knuckle dragging whores drunk on the street, and that photo had to be taken after 8am.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||chitown||
someone has said on here before that it's fat cat alums in chicago that shut down that idea. they want to be able to drive home after the game. dunno if that's true but it kinda makes sense.... for them. i find them to be insufferable pussies then, but that's just me. maybe they could build a fancy dorm for them to stay in, with quiche for brunch and bidets in the bathroom.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||props||
props to you for making the eugene trip. sad it couldn't work out better for you. i knew we didn't have a chance in that game, unfortunately. that place is a killer.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||my loudest favorites||
#3--UM vs Washington, (03?)
#2--Dez punt return vs. OSU
#1--Dez 4&1 layout touchdown catch vs ND.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||ann arbor and eugene||
I'm mostly here to concur.
I've had season tix in section 11, the south endzone, for a few decades now. Our tix are next to the grouchiest old coot you've ever met, and I pray for the day he's too old to make it to the stadium. We all know the guy. Typically, he's actually from Ohio. I often lament the weak nature of our fans, particularly in a section often humbled by rowdy visiting fans (let me tell you, that Utah game sucked for section 11).
I firmly believe that night games alone would solve the problem. Booze=rowdy and there aren't enough people excited to booze at 10am, present company excluded.
I loathe piped in sound if you've ever been to State College, it's 200% louder and I feel terrible for the chumps that all sing 'sweet caroline'. It's pathetic.
I think Albom is right, it's in large part a fact of good midwestern values. There just aren't enough of us who enjoy saying, in some form, "I am better than you." That's a good thing.
I went to grad school in Eugene, and a previous poster is right: Eugene is madness, 30% of the size, far louder on the field. I like the idea of weeding out 70% of the old coots and turning the Big House into the Joe, tiny and insanely loud.
None of it's happening. No night game, no ridding of the old coots. No southern obnoxiousness (and the south ain't gonna rise again, idiot).
All I request from everyone is this:
PRAY TO GOD IN HEAVEN ABOVE THAT THEY DON'T PIPE IN THAT SHIT MUSIC. I WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER, SING 'LIVIN ON A PRAY'. EVER!!!! I would prefer silence, and the coot.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||touche||
touche, but that's just me. i like titty jokes.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||he shouldn't care||
i hope he doesn't give a shit. he's the best swimmer ever. he's not paris hilton and he's not brad pitt. he actually did something, swim, and that made him famous. Great! Take the money and run, and do what you want to do. Let me ask you this... why shouldn't he smoke weed if he wants to? for some cash? screw it. dude's got cash, and more than that, dude's got the knowledge that he's the best ever. the media wants him to be remorseful, but that's only because the media has a set of parameters they live by. they're hoping he breaks those parameters because it gives them something to talk about. but for him, himself, he's the best swimmer ever, and pat 'let's hire some hookers' o'brien and the rest of them can say what they want.
phelps is the best ever at his sport. ever. dude, go celebrate.
|4 years 43 weeks ago||newspapers are going the way of the horse and buggy...||
...and this writer is trying to sell you one.
It's old technology, these newspapers. How often do you open the classifieds? What about 15 years ago?
How about the cost of manufacture and delivery of a paper? Huge compared to the internet. So competition is severe. In order to differentiate itself from the internet, they should be writing in depth stuff. Instead.....
...Shitheads write stuff like this BECAUSE ALL THEY DO IS SURF THE INTERNET! Really, this guy did NO research(!), was totally misleading, and probably spent 10 minutes writing this. What's the difference between this guy and someone sitting next to you at the bar? Nothing!
Brian does far more research in his writing than this guy. Let this guy's job die. No one will miss it. Dude should really be a janitor somewhere. All smart people are moving to different professions. He's a goner.

the amount of times we'd pass in running situations in the last few years was my most hated aspect of the lloyd offense. one only need look at the 2006 OSU game where in the 4th quarter we passed on 3rd and 1 and 3rd and 2. both failed. we lost by three.
run the ball baby! run rich run!
