This also looks like it's trying much too hard (and crikey, did the Joker just forget all about leg day?), but even the goth kids in high school would laugh at someone tattooing "Damaged" across their forehead. Apparently Leto's never heard the writing maxim - which I always thought applied to many other art forms - that you must "Show, Never Tell."

Sam Webb talked about this frequently while it was going on. It was clear that Michigan had Costello, Eason, Peters and Hastings - at least - ahead of Deweaver on their board.

yes, you wrote semi-failure. it's right up above there. you should look at that before chugging in endless circles on the "can't anyone READ OMG" train, which is quite ironic in this case.
|3 days 13 hours ago||Right, I'm assuming 9 times||
Right, I'm assuming 9 times out of 10 I'd agree. But if the coach was crying because his car got a little scratch on it or something similarly stupid/mundane on the coach's part, I'm going to cut the kid some slack.
|3 days 14 hours ago||He laughed at his high school||
He laughed at his high school coach when the guy was crying? Context is certainly needed, but Winston just seems to have this history of bad decisions. Lots of big personalities do (tend to have fireworks both good and bad, whether they were a winner or not dictates which comes to light), I understand that, but the question of whether this guy is an asshole or not is totally unclear to me.

OK, I know I'm obsessing over this a little bit now... but the car licking. We should have several overweight males take pictures and be seen amongst the twitterverse licking the handle on LeVert's ride. That would be a nice mock of KY fans while simultaneously highlighting our joy at his return.

My bet: he'll retract or soften his words on this in the next day or so. It's probably true to an extent, he did feel this way - Harbaugh will ride people, we know that. Boone probably got caught up in a discussion with an HBO reporter, and when he started along this critical line, they were giving him lapdog looks (better story, and they were right - Boone's comments have been the sizzle so far).
|3 days 20 hours ago||Boone is being obliterated in||
Boone is being obliterated in the press for this, for the most part. I read the ESPN article re. this and actually read the comments - don't ever read the comments - and all of them were either 49er's fans defending Harbaugh or various levels of "Boone's soft and he'll be a loser now that Harbaugh's gone." When even the ESPN comments pass on the chance to diss a big personality, you know the day is won.

For the few guys flipping out about this offer, Seth's recent Dear Diary is instructive. I assume the kid's grown quickly in the last year, and is still learning how to move those legs.
The guys losing their shit need to calm the hell down, however... if people are reasonably questioning this offer, I don't see the need to pile on a bunch of Harbaugh superlatives. We know that and it's obvious. If you look at the available evidence for this recruit, there are several items to legitimately discuss and question. He's huge, no doubt. From his camp film he looks like he has decent hands, but not a completely natural pass catcher. Doesn't look like an outstanding athlete, slow feet, runs with his toes out. He didn't play much last year as a sophmore, when frankly most elite recruits are starters for their HS team. It's very early for 2017, no need to rush. This staff has a clear pattern for 2016 recruits - fan out to the nationally elite guys, then move on from there.
Of course the coaches know better than anyone on this board. But that shouldn't end the discussion. It should end the lost-my-shit-OMGRRR!!!'s, but anything should. Michigan should want the absolute elite TE's in the country for 2017 - if they take 3, they should try to get the top 3 - and right now the available evidence doesn't suggest this kid is one of those. The coaches see it and sure that's good enough for me. What the hell do I know. But that shouldn't stop a reasoned discussion.

But I think the people who can see your posts are those that are on the mobile app, and those that can't are on the website.
I was referring to a reference you made about getting an answer key or master book and using that all semester. Sorry I can't be more specific, but I don't remember the thread or context. Entirely possible I'm mistaken, and if so disregard.

Somewhat related, the mgolicious "5 new people you meet at every college football spring camp" is worth the click.

I heard about this on the drive in - will be very interesting to see how this plays out. Apparently Verizon didn't consult with any of their content providers before their announcement, which is a bit shocking. CNBC is speculating that they did that to provoke a response from consumers, who are likely to be on their side, and let the content providers essentially be painted as the bad guys in the court of public opinion.
Fairly risky strategy - not sure the first-mover advantage will be worth publicly strong-arming their suppliers, but I agree it ends up in the courts. Unfortunately I also agree with LandryHD's comment above: however this shakes out, I doubt it will lead to lower prices for any of us. The pie will be cut a different way at the top.

are you sure you weren't banhammered? I can see your quiverfull post below on mobile. That's a site flaw: when people are banned they can't remove them from the mobile app. That's why you see a lot of responses to troll posts that don't make any sense - the troll uses mobile, gets banned, but he's able to keep posting so he may not even realize he's been banned.
Not saying you're a troll, enjoy your posts (except the one about cheating through a class), but that account may have been banned some time back. That's why you'd think some could see it and some couldn't

this happened to me as well, on our Gator Bowl trip. Tough economy, but she couldn't find a job so went to Jacksonville for sun and fun (which, there are much, much better places than Jacksonville for that)
|6 days 16 hours ago||Let's see||
There are 4 non conference games this year, 2 are against Pac12 opponents, and a third against BYU, who's somewhat of a premier opponent and certainly a game most fans are excited about. All the whining last year flips in 2015, with Sparty and OSU at home, along with Northwestern. Add in a visit to Happy Valley, and yes, this year's schedule is outstanding.

Admit it, you're just trying to be contrarian.
But I thought I was holding back by limiting my invective to yammernammer. Sorry if you felt I McHenry'd you, nobody deserves that.

I would change the title to "Star Wars Battlefront trailer", just because a lot of folks are going to assume this is the movie trailer posted earlier

wouldn't have believed it, but here it is: the proverbial One Who Could Complain About Anything. After 7 years of RichRod and Hoke, a Michigan fan is presented with Jimmy fucking Harbaugh... and complains.
You don't have to be an elitist yammernammer, it's really not that hard. We get it, you're above Judge Judy and Cracker Barrel. Good for you.

It oozes Midwestern charm, the people really do seem a bit more humble/genuine/nice there. Lots of smart people (which you can confirm by reading BHGP), not a lot of agendas. Remember that anywhitedude-under30-gottahaveanAudiA4 craze that swept most metro areas a few years back? That didn't happen there.
