Why Gates thought he'd be a good replacement is a mystery.
|1 day 13 hours ago||I don't know how anyone could disagree with that.||
Jesus Tap-Dancing Christ on a Cracker, are you really this dense? It's really fucking bizarre.

I hope to hell you're not in a position of responsibility for anything other than dressing yourself in the morning.
|2 days 21 hours ago||it's tough to watch||
You've got my sincerest sympathies. From personal experience, It's hard to think of anything worse when it comes to parents.

before the dementia sets in. My liver says I'm making good progress to that goal.
And if you think I'm kidding, you're wrong. My dad passed a month shy of 90 from multi-infarct dementia, and I've never personally encountered a more tortured, anguished soul than he was in the final year or two of his life.

I've always thought it would be awesome to work in Middle Earth, but I've heard Bilbo's company has better benefits.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Here's how it's going to go in terms of public perception||
If Nike/Jumpman-wearing Michigan wins multiple BIG titles, beats OSU and MSU with regularity, and gets into a NC game or two, then our apparel deal is genius and everybody loves the stuff.
If we don't, then the deal and the goods will be sneered at.
|4 days 51 min ago||Worst advice I ever got I gave to myself||
Sure, let's get rid of the cool '66 Pontiac Catalina convertible with the power top, leather interior and AM-FM stereo and take the turd-brown '70 Duster with the tinny AM radio that my mom was getting rid of.
I still don't know what the fuck I was thinking.
|4 days 5 hours ago||An argument that he should not be fired||
That's what I assumed you were referring to. In a college sports world that wasn't substantially insane and out of control, Briles would be gone without question.
|4 days 20 hours ago||"You could make an argument either way for Briles"||
On what planet can you seriously make an argument in favor of Briles? That like Steve Fisher, he just gosh, gee whiz, really had no idea what was going on behind the scenes?
And whatever Steve Fisher was guilty of, it PALES in comparison to what Briles has been condoning.

the conditions at the Preakness were perfect for him.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Nice article||
I was somewhat surprised that he decommitted but it looks like IU is a good spot for him and his family.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Bo was rightfully pissed at the Big Ten||
In light of the recent revelations about how far back the abuse at PSU went, I've wondered whether Bo had heard rumors about it and didn't want the conference to have any association with PSU. Of course he wouldn't have been able to mention the rumors in public, so instead he places his disagreement on the university presidents angle instead.
|1 week 2 hours ago||We need them to go 10-2.||
My preference would be for OSU to be undefeated and ranked #1 going into the game in Columbus. Beating them will be particularly sweet.
|1 week 4 hours ago||In fifteen seasons as a HC||
Meyer's teams have won nine or more games during the regular season 12 times. With Barrett coming back, I'd take the over on 8.5.
|1 week 4 hours ago||but having unused scholarships is pretty crazy.||
It's bizarre that a high-profile program that played for the NC just three years ago and made it to the Elite 8 the year after that is now having so much trouble just filling out its roster.
|1 week 2 days ago||"I don’t know why people suspected Caris was soft."||
If Beilein didn't want large numbers of knuckleheads to jump to that conclusion, then he couldn't have handled the situation any more stupidly than he did. In this media environment, the only thing that refusing to provide information does is guarantee that idiots will fill in the blanks themselves.
It's one of the most basic principles of public relations—information vacuums will be filled, and whether they're filled with sanity or horseshit depends on the holder of the information.

it's just a Eurotrash version of the "Cleveland Steamer."
|1 week 4 days ago||Unless it's something truly major, or directly involves U of M,||
So a post about an addition to MSU's defensive line rotation is of no legitimate interest to any UM fan, but your detailed comment about your seats in Ohio Stadium is?
|1 week 4 days ago||Like this one?||
|1 week 4 days ago||12 shitters? That's one for every 800 sq. ft.||
The only conclusion to draw is that all of the former residents had bladder/sphincter control issues.

|1 week 6 days ago||Michigan-Ohio State, 1977||
We'd already been engaged for a year, but this was the first football game I'd taken her to.
The 9-1 and #4 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes invade Michigan Stadium to play the 9-1 and #5 ranked Michigan Wolverines in another titanic clash between Bo Schembechler and Woody. The winner captures the Big Ten championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl. Michigan was ranked #1 in the country for four weeks during the season, with the only blemish a shocking upset loss at Minnesota in October.
Ann Arbor was in a veritable frenzy in the days leading up to the game, and the atmosphere was crackling with tension and drama as we entered the stadium on game day. The game was a tight, low-scoring affair dominated by defense, and the outcome was not settled until the waning minutes.
That didn't matter to her—she was so thoroughly bored by the whole affair that late in the second quarter she pulled a book out of her coat pocket and started reading, and only occasionally looked at the heroic events taking place on the field. She didn't bug me to leave or stop cheering, either—she just did what she wanted to do.
If she's bored, she isn't going to sit and whine—she's smart, independent, self-sufficient, and takes care of things herself. It'll be 37 years this August.

Isn't that what you do to someone who's choking on a hot dog? The Heisman Maneuver?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||The R&D involved in this is certainly worth it in general||
but I expect that shooting people at 700mph in a tube from LA to San Fran will be a reality right about at the same time I finally get my rocket backpack and atomic-powered personal helicopter.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||you have no idea what a fkn time sink design studio is||
As a 1978 graduate (BS Arch) of the first two years of UM's architecture program, I can heartily concur with "time sink." As in all your time goes down that sink and you've got nothing left for anything else. It was challenging, to say the least. That's when I learned how to get by with four hours of sleep a night for weeks at a stretch.

|2 weeks 3 days ago||All the classifieds for "adult entertainment"||
When I was a kid I was sufficiently entranced by these running in the Freep and the News sports sections that I paid the Stone a visit when I was a sophomore in high school.
Interesting place. And crowd.
