"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

|8 hours 27 min ago||Brady Hoke says coaches||
Seriously? Since when has our fucking identity been run the ball? can't wait for 27 for 27 or 29 for -48. We suck at that. Stop fucking tinkering by trying to get us to do something we are ill equipped for. Our identity should be let DG make plays. Lets get Butt more than 1 reception. How bout we call more than one play for Norfleet per game?
|8 hours 34 min ago||Of course the problem with||
Of course the problem with Michigan football lies with Hoke. He has proven himself to be woefully incompetent.
But Brandon is the one that hired him and the one that overpaid Hoke seemingly just to prove a point that we will pay a lot for a coach, notwithstanding whether said coach deserves or should command such a salary. And worst of all, Brandon did tons of other things to antagonize the fanbase when the performance of the team was enough to drive them away. Brandon lit the fire, Hoke keeps stoking it and Brandon keeps spraying gasoline on it

How about $5 million just to smile on the sideline?

Our D hasn't shown dick this year. What makes you think they'll suddenly be competent? Was it the amazing performance against Rutgers to make Nova look like Aaron Rogers or was it how we make Cobb look like Adrian Peterson?
|3 days 10 hours ago||Agreed. Just because he||
Agreed. Just because he hasn't been fired yet, doesn't mean that he should hide in a bunker. He still has a job to do and you can believe he is going to try to do it as well as he can (or as well as he is being instructed). I wouldn't read anything else into that.
|4 days 10 min ago||I'm not saying it worked but||
I'm not saying it worked but they definitely had a reason for releasing it so late. Not disagreeing that they spent a ton of time haggling over words "probable mild concussion" but almost 60 hrs after the game ended, even the most ridiculous legalese could've been writen by then, let alone the 800 word piece of shit that he put out. By releasing it at 1am, they missed that night's Sportscenter and were hoping it would be buried on everyone's twitter feed by 8am.
Lets be naive and think they just released it when they finished it... that is almost as bad, if not worse. Cause even if you didn't intend to, the appearance is they tried to bury it.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Agreed. If DB was really||
Agreed. If DB was really doing this to save face then he is about 12 hrs to late (well actually months/years late). You release bad news after hours, not good news. Maybe they really are that inept in all aspects.

"A Bridge Too Far." Caine and Hackman in the same movie. This is my thesis man! This is my closing argument!
|6 days 8 hours ago||The issue is that there was||
The issue is that there was absolutely nothing to gain from it. yes, the likelihood of a Hail Mary TD was close to zero, but it was infinitely more likely than any benefit coming to Michigan. If a hail mary was like a 1 in 1,000,000 chance, then any points for Michigan in this scenarious was like 1 in 1,000,000,000,000.
It just reinforces the point that our coach really has absolutely no idea what he is doing.

Oh man I'm invisible. Better wrap my face up in an ace bandage and put on a hat and sunglasses.
|1 week 2 days ago||You can't be serious, can||
You can't be serious, can you? All sings point to FSU atheltic department and police conspiring to bury the allegations, evidence is destroyed and they meet with the accused's lawyer before any information is turned over to the prosecutor. Kind of hard to bring a case when tons of people conspire to prevent the case.
If the latest stories are true, I really hope the entire police department and the Athletic department is fired, sued and arrested.

The argument when you don't have a good argument. If "supporting the players" is what you have to fall back on, you've already lost and there is nothing to discuss

You have nice points but ruin it with an ask for access to a suite.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'm fine with the concept of||
I'm fine with the concept of boycotting something this season, but I think a Maryland boycott is futile and won't accomplish anyhting. Also, not to generalize too much, I just think alot of people have the wrong idea of what a boycott will accomplish (i.e., attendance numbers, $$$$, etc.) I think a show of force that the students can assemble and get together en masse and prove how pissed off they are at Brandon and/or Hoke is definitely a powerful message and will resonate.
Its for that reason that I personally think boycotting the Maryland game will accomplish nothing. It will be a meh game against a meh opponent late in the season, a season in which we will have a brutally awful record. Having 15k no shows would almost be expected under those circumstances at most schools. so you risk the boycott being lost in the general malaise of a shitty season.
|1 week 5 days ago||There is no way any boycott||
There is no way any boycott will impact the bottom line in any way this year. All (most?) tickets are bought and paid for. No showing won't get the beloved announced attendance below 100k, nor will it cost any significant amount of revenue. I have no idea why so many people have such a tough time grasping this.
The only impact any boycott, either of a game, a kickoff or showing up wearing a brown bag will huge amounts of negative publicity, which is what the goal needs to be. Leave en mass after the coin toss. Put brown bags on your head. Start a "FIRE", "BRANDON" or a "PAPA" "JOHNs" chant across the opposite sides of the field. Just don't think anything you can do during this season willh hurt the bottom line.

So how do our two drives in the third quarter, a 3 and out for -2 yd and a 4 play drive for 4 yds and an interception = offense played for four quarters?
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||The problem is the refs||
The problem is the refs must've taken took an awfully broad view of going to the ground in the act of catching a pass which defies logic

This bullshit about connection to the program got us here in the first place. I just want a good coach. So be it if he has no Michigan connection. Why hamstring us for no reason?

But but but I thought it was a unique thing at Michigan and was due solely to Brandon?

Congrats on being the 3,000th person to cite this even though no conclusion can be drawn from this.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I see an insane performance||
I see an insane performance by Gardner causing us to revisit the non-existent debate this past week of "why the fuck did you bench Gardner?" causing us to revisit the holy shit Hoke is incompetent in the handling of his QB, this time because everyone will focus on how good Gardner can be and how ompletely overwhelmed Morris was last week

Yeah cause that has really paid dividends for us this year. Look at we moved the ball and scored against teams with a pulse this year.
