There are muslims being singled out, discriminated against and assaulted because of narrow-minded racism and intolerance towards Islam. People who are subject to that violence feel that the movie made things worse. You may disagree with that conclusion, but civility and open-mindedness requires at least listening to the concern and evidence. Simply chalking it up to "political correctness" does a disservice to the conversation and to those harmed.

If you get a chance, watch the movie Airplane!
And then Seven Samurai, just because it's an amazing movie.

Different system. Hard to know how he'll connect with Harbaugh(!). He'll only have the Fall to learn the system and receivers.
That said, there's a history of grad-year QBs doing well post transfer. I'm guardedly optimistic. If the run game and protection are even adequate, he could blow up.

|3 weeks 6 days ago||Let's be careful||
I understand taking a shot at Coach Cal, but let's be careful when potentially impugning the reputation of a young man whom we hope to call a Wolverine in the near future. I have no reason to suspect that he would ask for anything inappropriate, nor that Beilein would recruit such a person.

I believe it was said that he may commit soon, but we don't know when. There could be a trend toward another school in his future. Given his general reticence, the stated lack of knowledge in general, and his penchant for correcting mis-reporting, I'm going to avoid getting too excited by drinking until I black out.

Peppers is not, and will not, play QB. Seems a few people felt mislead. Perhaps something like, "Secretary of State Peppers" would be better.

I think that teams will be more interested in him, however, not because this speaks to his guilt or innocence but because it suggests that he won't have the proverbial "cloud over his head."
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Point well taken.||
As a parent and human, I can say that children are born greedy. All humans have a natural state of greed, hate and delusion. If there's a "deprivation," it is sometimes simply being in a family that nurtures rather than admonishes against greed. I'm optimistic, however, that people can and do choose to replace greed with generosity; hate with love; delusion with enlightenment. And I think this has very little to do with economic wealth. I've heard that charities going door-to-door tend to do better in poor neighborhoods than gated communities.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Sad.||
Having children changed my outlook on life. It helped me learn to care about others more than myself. It opened up my heart. We expect that it will have the same effect with others, but sadly that isn't always the case.
As much as having my children impacted me, it had no such effect on their mother. To this day she is self-absorbed, critical, childish and greedy. In her case, I think it is a matter of mental health and substance abuse problems as well as genetics and her own abusive parents. For some of that I can blame her. For much, it was the hand she was dealt.
I have no idea what made Mr. Buchanon's mother so greedy. Greed, however, stopped being a surprise to me a long time ago.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Random thoughts from random internet dude||
1) Played within the system, and was obviously comfortable with hitting his TEs and WRs. Should fit Harbaugh's system well.
2) Made some mistakes--bad throws, bad reads. Not turrible, but enough to drive you crazy. His #s suggest he's more careful with the ball, but they may be a bit misleading, perhaps because he was in such a "safe" offense. #FerentzBall.
3) He's not dilithium, but he can scoot fairly well and had good judgment on when to pull it down and run.
4) As everyone's said, a solid B1G QB, which raises the floor significantly. Very glad to have him coming.
