|3 weeks 6 days ago||On a player who has played||
On a player who has played football for two years and has nine total starts, but who had a great workout and is now loved by everyone. That sounds familiar. Considering that they lost both ends, why not go with more of a known commodity like Mingo?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||So they were good sports and||
So they were good sports and threw the pick away for good measure.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Brandon and the Regents||
In addition to his not being qualified for the job, that's a good insurance policy.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||That's exactly correct||
Michigan is one of, if not the, premier research universities in the world. The next president will not be a non-academic.

Throw an NSFW tag on there for those of us at work ... uh ... working.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Meh.||
It was a light tap to either a) knock the ball loose from the stupid kid's grasp or b) let the stupid kid know that he's doing something stupid. It's not like Hazard booted the kid, either way. As others have said, if you intentionally put yourself into the field of play, then you deserve what's coming to you.
Anyway, as a LOSC fan and a lover of Belgium, Eden Hazard gets a free pass on this. Coincidentally, Zenedine Zidane loves him.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||He did only have five||
He did only have five touchdowns this season, making him (at 392.8 yards per touchdown) probably the most inefficient star in the league.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed||
I can also say that I appreciate autumn and winter significantly more since I started my Lions boycott.

Especially since he'll expect the city to pay for it.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||But ... but ... that wasn't||
But ... but ... that wasn't politics. I was responding to political speculation in the post above mine.

Dave Brandon is very Republican, so I doubt that Ann Arbor's liberalism influenced his decision in any way.

But it would be neat if there were.

Also known as the primary argument against considering wins a meaningful statistic.

I'm reading Moneyball right now, so that may affect my thinking, but Belein is the Billy Beane of basketball recruiting.
|45 weeks 2 days ago||That's not a very Clay Davis||
That's not a very Clay Davis thing for you to say. You think he has time to check who the tweets come from? You think he has time to think about where they got the material? Sheeeeeit.
E.T.A: Holy hell, I'm five days late to the party. Oops.
|48 weeks 1 day ago||The People. The Tradition. The Excellence.||
That's their slogan? Really?
|48 weeks 4 days ago||After their efforts against||
After their efforts against Spain in the World Cup final (so dirty!) and against Portugal yesterday, I think that Dutch soccer would give the Italians a run for their money on that designation.
|49 weeks 17 hours ago||I'm not talking about this||
I'm not talking about this post. I'm talking about the Alabama game and Appalachian State. I'm talking about the ridiculous uniforms. I'm talking about the stupid stadium music that's the same as in every other stadium at every other sporting event in the world (seriously: they played "Seven Nation Army" after Italy scored the first goal in its match against Spain in the Euro championships). This trendification of Michigan is what bothers me, and that's all on Brandon.
Sure, it looks like Hoke was a good hire, and I'm confident that his success will continue, but it's not like he was an unknown contender that Brandon unearthed. He was the institutional favorite the last time around.
As for cleaning out the Athletic Department, okay. He's cluttered the department with people bringing on these ridiculous changes, though, and that's not exactly an improvement. Not to mention that profitability happened under Martin, and Brandon is enjoying the fruits of that.
Of course, this is all irrelevant because he's not going anywhere, but it's not unreasonable to dislike the job the guy has done.
|49 weeks 1 day ago||Rationally it probably||
Rationally it probably shouldn't, but this makes me hate the War on Drugs even more. What was he doing wrong? Was he speeding? Was he driving recklessly? Did he have a busted tail-light? Players lose a start for getting a DWI. They get 30 days in jail for killing somebody while drunk (!). This is stupid.
E.T.A.: Not sure if that is overly political, but please ignore if it is.
|49 weeks 1 day ago||What was the last thing that||
What was the last thing that Dave Brandon said or did that deserved approval? The guy's got a pretty bad record going now, all in the name of The Brand.
Incidentally, I find it interesting (perhaps even ironic) that the guy we have in charge of taking care of one of the classiest and most well-known brands in sports originally made his name remaking the brand of a chain selling shitty pizza.
|49 weeks 4 days ago||I know you're referring to||
I know you're referring to the Heat Trio, but Wade has already won one.
|49 weeks 4 days ago||The only thing you're missing||
The only thing you're missing in that comment is a nod to the big bang because, you know, that's really where this all started.
|49 weeks 4 days ago||Hm||
Yes, technically Tiger babies are called cubs, but the Cubs are baby bears.

It's kind of sad watching him at this point.

And the fans confirmed that "Seven Nation Army" should not be the rally song at the Big House.
Also, Silva and Fabregas just responded, saying "Oh, you guys want to play?"
