I enjoy laughing at MSU as much as anyone else, but they didn't even offer this kid. Let's be rational. There are countless other things to make fun of them about.

I've done the race twice. It is a lot of fun running through Ann Arbor and the tunnel gave me chills. Great event and very well-organized.

I am in tears and everyone is wondering why. When I try to think of explaining this, I just laugh harder!

This guy is trying way too hard with the blog humor. That was tough to read.

Obviously the coaches know that stastically we were one of the best running teams in the nation last year. But we all know that was based off one extraordinary player who got hurt in 10 of the games. By revived, I am assuming the coaches mean a new running game that focuses more on our stable of running backs and power running. Just a hunch. Good update though, as always.

I suppose we all look the same to you, Costanza?
|5 years 4 weeks ago||This was my mental response||
This was my mental response to the OP. It seems too simple, so I was just assuming I read the original post wrong.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||We were?||
What is he now? Don't tell me he's another slot ninja.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||It's not that we don't||
It's not that we don't believe he's done. It's just that we don't know for sure yet. Do I seriously have to explain this concept to you?

That looked terrible. He's had such bad luck. You have to feel for the guy.

Change the thread title. You don't know shit yet.

Good riddance. Niedermayer's a dirty player and a coward.

HOW DARE YOU!
|5 years 6 weeks ago||I feel the exact same way. He||
I feel the exact same way. He has the ability to be the best hitter in the game, but I think he isn't mentally ready to take it to the next level. He gives away too many at-bats. Which is scary considering what his numbers look like year after year.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||He is above this, apparently.||
He is above this, apparently.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Our (arguably) best recruit||
Our (arguably) best recruit at a position of DIRE need is probably being denied the chance to join the team and you are going to harp on people for being upset? I'm just as excited for the incoming frosh as anyone, but it doesn't mean there isn't logic to being pissed off about the whole Dorsey situation.

I'm with you. Could be wrong, but I can't find anything that says they are out. Can anyone link to an article or profile?
|5 years 8 weeks ago||Dombrowski has been far from||
Dombrowski has been far from perfect, but I think overall, he has done a good job. Allowing Ordonez to reach his quota doesn't seem like that bad of a move anymore. At the time yes, I would have agreed with you. However, Maggs has become an integral .300 hitter in the 3 hole in what has become an inconsistent offense. Maggs has been a nice constant. Sure, he is overpaid, but in order to attract guys like Magglio and Pudge here, DD has to overpay.
The Robertson and Dontrelle contracts baffle me as well, so no rebuttal here.
As far as Sheffield goes, the Tigers had to extend him to get the trade done. We needed a high OBP guy to hit in our lineup and at the time, it was a brilliant move. Sheff had some injury and inconsistency issues, but I don't fault DD at all for making that move.
Lastly, we did not sign Renteria. We made a trade for him. Jurjjens has been nice in Atlanta, but his constant injury issues and attitude were reasons enough to ship him out for an All-Star caliber SS who severely underachieved.
Your points are not far off, but your delivery is what causes people to not take you seriously.

I applaud him for umping today. He is facing the music like a man.
