"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

|3 days 10 hours ago||Interesting||
Sounds fun! Might be a serious weekend. That would be a month tour for me.
|3 days 11 hours ago||Thanks!||
I'll add that to the list to try.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Any other recommendations?||
I'll be in TC this weekend. I moved to Florida ten years ago, so this is guy's weekend away before kid three.

They need someone to out him on a major site before it'll get any real traction. 2014-2015 full circle.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I tried to stop people from booing||
All but once. When Hoke put Morris back in after he wobbled off and seemed to lose consciousness for a moment, I boo'd. Loudly.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Whatever they may be this year||
The SEC couldn't be called even the second or third best conference last year. The results didn't bear it out. You have to actually win when it counts, not ride previous years' hype.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||What?||
I can't imagine Bedford not being good at wrestling. The town ate, slept, and breathed it for years. What happened?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I think it was '98||
I was at the game. Amazing season and we almost unseated powerhouse CC for the title.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Yes||
They used to spank Canton before Beckler came in. My brother was a linebacker on his first team (1999). Averaged 11 tackles a game. He still can break down Michigan linebacker film amazingly. Many, many years ago (1998), Canton had a huge win over Salem, which I believe was around the time the rivalry shifted Canton's way. We also started beating them in wrestling the next year (first time in 12 years).
I switched high schools from Huron to Canton my senior year, in case anyone saw my post above about Huron.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||State Championship||
I went to Huron when they went to the state championship. It was in the Silverdome and an incredible season to watch. We got out muscled by Catholic Central, but much of the school rallied around that season.
"Who's house?" "Green house!" With the deer cut-out... Anyone else from that era? Great memories of win after win.

When he said it at Vandy, I figured they knew they had a coach above their pedigree and didn't want to upset him. But then Penn State snatched him up and it surprised me. Probably shouldn't have.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||No real backlash||
I'm shocked this created no waves for his employment. Sure, it's football, where results are generally regarded much higher than character, but the fact that he could say something this outrageous and not have repercussions boggles the mind.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Are you noting that||
because you have questions about him or because you think he's good?
|5 weeks 4 days ago||How did you know?||
How did you know he could upvote himself and it would count?

Sometimes deserve to be confronted.
Not usually with kettlebells, though.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Hmm.||
What kind of program that purports to mold young men hires that guy? No sympathy for UCLA.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||My wife went to UF||
Everyone stands in the swamp on big plays. It's not just an accusation thrown at people who should be in the student section. She enjoyed the game I took her to at the Big House and we both lost our voices, but she was surprised that people didn't stand more. It made it seem like people are less passionate fans.
I don't suppose everyone has to stand if they really don't want to, but they sure better not criticize someone else for doing it.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Man, disagree||
The first one was an excellent, beautiful film. I actually prefer it to the 2nd. It stood on filmmaking chops rather than the violence you expect is all you'll get from a superhero film. Now, the second developed the theme brilliantly with many nuanced levels of meaning, but those are the best features of a Nolan film.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||In the wedding analogy||
Questioning the offer while congratulating the kid is like saying, "Hey, I'm glad he picked you, but I certainly can't see the attraction." I don't see how you can spin that as positive or okay in a Hello post.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||I can't believe||
M-Wolverine got banned for legitimate concerns about a former contributor's approach toward recruits, yet these guys perpetually come back to crap on our program and recruits and no one cares. Something's backwards here. I wholeheartedly endorse the clean-up.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Half time adjustments||
I'm not referring to our talent level. I'm fully aware of Martin's impact. I'm not talking about either how well we played overall or turnover margin, but how well we adjusted at half time. There was a clear difference in our adjustments the first year from the later ones. Now, maybe Martin was the one who came up with some ideas we needed to adjust, but I have to think it wasn't Mattison.
The adjustments weren't consistent after that year.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Theory I've come up with||
If you remember that first year, we were all so impressed that Mattison would make half time adjustments that would drastically change each game that season. We would effectively shut down whatever offensive strategy was working for our opponents in the first half. This came to be an expected thing and one of the reasons we were all really high on Mattison that first year.
Then, strangely after that year it all stopped. The half time adjustments that would shut down teams and control games, which we came to expect, never really happened again. I was disappointed each of the following years with our inability to have a half time change that made any significant difference. The X factor?
Quite possibly Montgomery. He was the only coaching variable around that time. Who knows if he wasn't whispering important observations in Mattison's ear that led to that defensive strategic edge?
I think it's a strong possibility. Either way, I'm confident Montgomery was one of our hottest coaches and a big loss when he took off for Oklahoma.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Counterpoint||
We can come up with our own counterpoints. Kindly take your OSU comments elsewhere.
Besides, that's a ridiculous comparison. They pulled Burnett's offer, and he could go wherever else he wanted. He ended up fine. OSU screwed Weber into being stuck in an unholy alliance built on lies and deceit.

|25 weeks 3 days ago||Of the things to criticize,||
This isn't one. "Co-ed" is exactly the term that has been used over and over for a couple years to reference the college girl that he *allegedly slept with.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Yes||
I've felt exactly this way all season, even as Hoke was building this "small" class. None of the other programs seem to recruit small classes like this. It seems they have 20-30+ every year. I'm sure they find ways to fill the spots. I've been scratching my head about this since last spring. It would seem a more ambitious approach would pay off.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||You sound||
You sound like a couple guys about to charge over the hill.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||This and the above||
This and the above comment are extremely unfair. Recruiting is the one thing Hoke did right. He scored with high four star recruits and solid four stars almost across the board and recruited exceptionally well. We pulled multiple kids with Alabama and OSU offers and other top power 5 schools, but he wasn't able to coach them up. If Harbaugh recruits as well as Hoke and coaches as well as Harbaugh has in the past, I'll be ecstatic.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||No.||
MSU and Wisconsin say otherwise.

His was the red herring.
