It's not easy to be Defeated With Dignity (TM) once, let alone Defeated With Dignity (TM) nine times in a season.
They're kind of the moral victory national champion by some measures.

Not only did he overcome a truly tough background, he continued to make good choices by decommiting from Izzo. All the best to the young man!
|2 hours 31 min ago||Point of Order||
As a point of order, Brian mentioned that MSU went 3-9 last year, while Notre Dame went 4-8.
To clarify, that is exactly correct. I just wanted to repeat it too.
|11 hours 28 min ago||I would like periodic updates.||
People tend to forget what a great program Michigan has traditionally had, and it sure does not get much media coverage. In some ways, it does not help to have perennial powerhouse Iowa in the same conference, although net-net I'm glad to have them as they are a great measuring stick most years.
I loved wrestling (very little bullshit in that sport compared to some others and the best workouts of any sport I've done), and if the OP or others want to post about it, I will read with gratitude.

Blacksburg Census Designated Area Code 19.5.17 and 19.5.18 state that:
Ann Arbor has no such laws.
|20 hours 51 min ago||VaTech vs. Michigan?||
A2 has it all over Blacksburg. They say in Virginia that all dirt roads lead to Blacksburg. They're not wrong.
Bring that mean mug to Ann Arbor, Mekhi. You'll love it!

Unto the breach, into the Frey.
Eventually, the Michigan OL Frey'd the Buckeyes D-Line, persistently taking it to the second level.

I suppose the "Grammar Nazis" would object to the "Message Board of Etiquett Nazis" misspelling "Etiquette" in the name of their own damn organization. That might lead to infighting amongst two otherwise-aligned groups of Nazis

It reads fine as it is- you responding to yourself (for those of us not on the app) makes for much better reading than whatever the banned user could have said. It's like poetry.

We can buy gray meat sandwiches and babyshit brown Jamocha shakes with commemorative Michigan cups, but we will all still die, probably alone.
Eat at Arby's
|4 days 6 hours ago||Ojemudia Mean Mug Scale||
Mekhi Becton gets an A- from Brian on the mean mug scale. The industry standard measure, of course, is the Ojemudia.
A- is equivalent to 0.93 Ojemudias.

It's a bit disappointing, but hard to get too worked up about. Part of the big camp storm and Spring Break guest camp was to create additional buzz about the program. Plus, if we do something innovative once, and the NCAA shuts us down, then nobody gets to imitate it.
Methinks that Coach Harbaugh will come up with other ways to create buzz about the program. Dust that shit right off our shoulders, y'all. In the military, it's called "staying inside the enemy's planning cycle".

Just finishing off a 20 oz. mug of French Market Coffee w/ Chicory. Black and strong. Cold-brewed, but served piping hot.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Fair Point, Pastor||
I logged back in to acknowledge you raise a fair point. And to plus one you. I suppose, though, the really egregious thing is making light of incest. It's a much more common and serious problem than people think.
Now, because I can be a bit of an ass, I'd probably make the joke again. (I can rationalize it by noting that I pointed to "SEC" rather than the South, which is, uhhhmmm ... a rationalization.) But you made me think about it, so a tip of the hat to you, pastor!
MichiganMAN47 though - dude, do you race bait and concern troll often, or are you making a special case here? Nice canned speech about North/South race relations, etc. - it's just inapposite and fatuous.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Very Cool||
The Michigan Difference, I suppose.
(Apart from Pet Sounds I'm not a big Beach Boys fan, but Good Vibrations is an amazing single. While recorded during the Pet Sounds sessions (or thereabouts), a bit of trivia about that song is that it was never on a proper studio album of theirs.)
|4 days 11 hours ago||It's On Spotify||
For fellow Spotify addicts, it's on Spotify.
It was interesting to me that Barbara Ann is a cover song. Seems like a quintessential Beach Boys song.
I've seen The Doors story before, maybe on this here webpage. I strongly suspect that Jim M.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Toe Blake||
Resurrect Toe Blake.
If he's not available, I guess I would not mind Gadowski. Great coach, plus it would wound Penn State. I'm kind of anti-Penn State in general, what with the long history of aiding, abetting, and then conspiring to cover up the rape of children.
Pearson, though, is the natural fit. Could not go wrong with either.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Disappointed.||
Based on the OP's title, I was certain this would be about incest. Because that's the most SEC thing ever.
This, though, is pretty damn SEC. What would be interesting is to analyze whether the state legislature could even enforce this (as M-Go-Beek notes above). Furthermore, if I was the NCAA I'd say that any school that is a member must indemnify and hold the NCAA harmless from any state fines arising from investigations of their programs. Judo the m-fers something serious.
|5 days 8 hours ago||We'll Miss Him. They won't.||
The team will miss him sorely, and I hope he finds continued success moving forward.
Opposing teams' QBs, RBs, and OLs though? They won't miss him one bit.
|5 days 8 hours ago||And let's face it ...||
Not only that, but livestock with a "come hither" look.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Not my recollection.||
I'm working off of memory, but I think Ilitch always put a high premium on the Tigers franchise. He inherited an absolutely wretched roster from Tom Monaghan. Monaghan was an comically bad owner, who was also highly distractable, and constantly looking for public adulation. I don't recall Monaghan doing anything charitable that did not have a Brandon-esque clumsy self-promotion element to it.
Ilitch, on the other hand, was relatively low key in both his franchise ownership and his charitable works. Very devoted to Detroit in general, and loved baseball in general. I think Detroit's been blessed to have him on many, many levels.
I think it really took Ilitch a few years to dig out of the Monaghan mess. Detroit does not sell itself like some markets (NY, Chicago, LA, etc.), and it was not easy until Pudge (and then Magglio) to show that he was really dedicated to rebuilding the franchise.
Again, this is without researching it - just my recollection.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Boo that man.||
Boo. Boo anyone who boos Red.
It is certainly time for Warde Manuel to get Mel Pearson in town to succeed Red. But in the meantime, support the team, and support the man who made Michigan into a persistent power after years in the doldrums.
|5 days 23 hours ago||An Idea||
What if we sent both Timmay and WD to Bolivia, and told them that they could only earn their way back by saying something sincerely nice about the other?
Think of the wagering opportunities!

Argues for clemency for the banned with a quote that some would deem (used in levity) as grounds for banishment.

Never have the Jumpman logo (or anything else) tattooed on your balls. Always, always, always get that ink done on your scrotum.
And ensure the room at the ink parlor is really warm. Trust me on this.

I understand that in addition to hanging low, they do in fact wobble - to and fro. In fact, I understand that he can tie them in a knot and tie them in a bow. In fact, word on the street is that he can throw them over his shoulder (like a continental soldier).

We spend a lot of time talking about balls here, don't we?
Not criticizing. Just observing.

That is the best tweet I've seen in months.
On Faygo, it's really a Juggalo drink. I think Juggalos are better than Nazis, but still abhorrent.
