You've never been to Grand Rapids, have you?
|3 days 10 hours ago||I had the same experience.||
I had the same experience. When I was young, I couldn't wait to get out, and when I graduated from UM, I had no intention of coming back. However, here I am, and it's been great. Either GR is completely different as an adult, or the city has done a 180. GR as a young professional has been fun.

I think this is literally the first time I've ever heard someone complain about housing prices in GR. Expensive housing is not the reality I have seen at all.

I know I just pitched a bunch of stuff in GR's favor, but I'm not sure an Arizona native could be happy with Grand Rapids winters. They can be pretty brutal.

With all of the above said, man I do hate the winters with a passion.

Do you have any breweries nearby? I feel like the time I spent at Founders is what got me. I started with their simpler stuff, and got more and more experimental over time.

I think Sam Adams is a bit of a gateway drug. Their beers are pretty good, but none of them have that much substance to them.

The line meant, "Why are you Romeo?" Juliet is wondering why he has to be who he is, because she can't be with someone from that family.

I know this is an old thread, but now that it's back I just have to point something out regarding diversity. I keep seeing people posting about the diversity of AA being a selling point over a place like GR. According to census data, this is a myth. Ann Arbor is significantly whiter than Grand Rapids.
Grand Rapids: 64.6% white
Ann Arbor: 73% white
I think people are conflating their university experiences with the city itself. I loved AA as a student, but I prefer GR as a graduate.
EDIT: This wasn't meant to be a reply. Derp.

According to the 2010 census, Ann Arbor is almost 10% whiter than Grand Rapids by population percentage. The university is known for its diversity, but the city proper is really not that diverse.

I live in the GR area right now, and I'm going to miss it when I have to move next year. The city itself is nice, but there is also a large number of nice suburbs with good public schools and inexpensive housing costs. Also, when it comes to recreation, there is plenty to do in GR. The city really seems to be on the rise, and is pretty cloes to some awesome beaches as an added bonus.

Why do you need hawt chicks in your avatar? I never understood this.

I really don't understand the need to post OMG BOOBZ on a sports blog. Boobs are really, really easy to find on the internet. Can we keep those trash posts elsewhere?

IMO Dantonio is the most important piece of that defense. I'm sure Narduzzi is a great DC, but Dantonio coordinated OSU's national championship defense. I bet MSU's defense stays very strong.

Strong take: Ignoring physical potential, Darboh was a better receiver by the end of the season.

I think Gardner's regression and injury may be among the biggest indictments of this staff. After playing half a season at WR he looked outstanding at QB in 2012, only to get significantly worse statistically every year. Also, I don't think the "Gardner is broken" meme is limited to his apparent PTSD. He has had erratic velocity and has not really be planting consistently all year. There seems to be a real possibility that he suffered a long-term injury in 2013.

We won. Can we stop dancing on the grave? It's not like the guy was trying to destroy Michigan. He was doing what he thought was best.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||There's probably a reason||
There's probably a reason athletes and coaches like Dave Brandon. You can hate him for his commodification of seemingly everything, but he raised lots of money, and it sounds like he was very, very good to all of the sports other than football. Regarding football, his biggest issue was that his coaching hire sucked.

Regardless of whether an offense is spread or pro-style, it needs to block. I don't think it really matters that much.

I am much more in the "fire Hoke" bandwagon than the "fire Brandon" bandwagon. I don't think people would care as much about Brandon's policies if we were winning football games. Frankly, his policies would lead to better facilities and more scholarships for non-revenue athletes. These are good things.
Regarding Hoke, I would like to see him be successful. If he somehow pulls 8 wins out of his butt I will be pleased and will campaign for his retention. With that said, lol not happening.

So what exactly does Hoke do on this team? Serious question.
