An even bigger question would be whether Desmond would choose to be the best sportscaster in his field or get mad cow disease?

This whole topic makes me laugh. Everyone thinks that a change is great when things are bad, and a change is terrible when things are good. Everyone loves Jim Hackett because he did what the masses wanted: Fired Hoke. Eveyrone loved Schissel because he did what we all wanted: Fired Brandon. Well everyone loved Brandon because he did what we wanted: Fired Rich Rod.
Am I the only one who thinks this positive reaction to Hackett's press conference is completely pretenscious? How exactly did he knock it out of the park? Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad. I just don't understand how so many people can have such a bad memory. Hackett pretty much said nothing other than that one answer about the "Michigan Man" phrase. I'm glad he said that, but so far I've seen no evidence that he's the incredible AD most of you claim.

Finally someone in that position who isn't obsessed with incest. We need to stop trying to find people we are familiar with and start finding the best. We produce "Michigan Men"...we don't need to hire them.

I actually disagree. I'm tired of the "Michigan Man" crap. I'm not critiquing because I think it has to take longer than 110 days to become a "Michigan Man". I'm just annoyed that it matters at all. I don't think people should be hired because they are "Michigan Men"...we should be concentrating on hiring the best person for the job and producing "Michigan Men" in the process.

Congratulation of course.
I'll tell you something Michigan related that I learned soon after becoming a dad. My daughter was born on september 7th, so she was an infant during football season just like yours. I found out how much I really love dvr and how much I really hate espn announcers for games. I had to watch every game on mute (liked it better not hearing idiot announcers), and I constantly had to do little chores like bottle cleaning or diaper changing (so I iused the dvr).
I know anyone with a dvr will already say "duh" because it's great to skip commercials, timeouts, halftime, etc.....but you really gain an extra appreciation for it when that kid is such a hog for attention.

Count me as another one who doesn't care to be around people who can't enjoy the game without more alcohol during the game, and I certainly don't want my daughter near them.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||I'll never get enough of||
I'll never get enough of Hoke's reaction at 3:33 of that video. I hope this year's defense makes him throw his arm out of the socket with a lot of plays like that one by Demens.

My brain can't process this information. Bell is an absolute genius for making sure the guy next to him on the depth chart is doing the same bad thing as him, but he's dumb enough to think he can't get a DUI while driving high?!?!?!

Me 8 days from now....hopefully about 10 times.

If the O-line looks good, that means our D-line sucks.

Sorry. I guess between screen refresh and bathroom break I was a little late, but I saw "Ben" and lost it.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Blasphemy!!!||
Making comments about Seinfeld when you believe Ben Stiller was part of the cast. Now I can't believe a word you say.

I was addicted to Terror From the Deep. Maybe I still am....I keep a PC assembled in my basement closet that runs windows 98 for the sole purpose of being able to play that game every few years when I get the urge. Yeah I think that's addiction.

Congrats. Tomorrow is my birthday. I still have 7 more years in my 30's though.

Listening to Desmond say "Then I see the punter and I'm thinking there's no way in hell he's gonna catch me" makes me laugh so much. We desperately need another all-out playmaker like Desmond or Charles. Let's hope Jabrill can be that guy soon.

LOL!!! I love that scene. Hell I love the entire movie.
"Why doze guys try to hurt me?"

I hate you for reminding me of that awful displaying of referreeing (sp?). *sigh* that was our championship.
|24 weeks 1 day ago||Nice work. I've been playing||
I've been playing in the league since 2006. I think I've averaged 2 sessions per year (I usually skip summer).
For anyone here that likes to talk soccer, and is athletic in the slightest....you should come join the AASA (Ann Arbor Soccer Association). It's a great league that is extremely diverse (nationalities and skill levels). If anyone is interested let me know.

Perhaps you'll grow a liking to soccer in your new home, Bolivia. I think it's the only sport they play there.

My bad on the spelling.
I did find this from an article on the topic:
Klinsmann provided only murky details about his decision Friday, saying other players were 'a little step ahead of Landon in certain areas.'
'I don’t agree with that assessment,' Donovan said. 'I think I was at least as good as everybody else in camp. ... I think I was one of the better players, so that’s why it stings a little. If I had gone in and didn’t feel like I deserved it, I could live with that. But that’s not the case here.'
It's not the cockiest thing an athlete has said, but not exactly being modest. I realize Landon is upset for not making the team, but anyone who is "trying out" or asking to be judged on their ability had better be willing to hear bad news.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Klinsmann =||
Klinsmann = RichRod............sure why not. I can't speak to the rest of it. I have no idea if the US Soccer Federation will try to pull a Michigan fanbase/alumni/regent/athletic department on Klinsmann. At least US soccer doesn't have a glorious past full of incredible wins and championships. Most US soccer fans are realistic in their expectations, if not downright pessimistic. So we have that going for us.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Ohh maybe I didn't catch his||
Ohh maybe I didn't catch his sarcasm correctly then. I thought the talk about Beasley was saying that he leaves too much room and allows too many crosses. I'll have to read it again.
Edit: just re-read what ws mentioned about Beasley. I take back what I said. I agree wholeheartedly. Beasley is being leaned on heavily in this tournament, and he's done a fine job.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Depends on what "personal"||
Depends on what "personal" means. If Donovan has an attitude and is acting conceded, Klinsmann might think of him as a cancer.
It's possible that Klinsmann is preparing this team for 2018 moreso than the current World Cup. Probably why he comes out and says "We're not going to win this World Cup." He's pulling a RichRod (i.e. revamping team philosophy and cleaning out the closets), and by getting through the group stage he's probably bought himself another 4 years to do what he wants to do.
