As we learned from the Ocho Cinco/Evelyn Lozada incident...
These aggressive women don't like it too much when met with equal aggression by men.
I wasn't there I can't say he was right or wrong.
But as others have mentioned, an olympic athlete getting out of shape over being pushed is pretty lame. And for those who advocate gender equity... I would assert that this is an instance in which gender equity should be applied and this man should be looked at no differently than a woman who would have done a similar thing...
Pretty lame of her to take it to the media... but she's a loudmouth that's what she does. It's a shame that with all her success she can't be a better ambassador for soccer and women's athletics. I wouldn't waste my time talking to such a person let alone arguing with them.

I'm not from Michigan... So Michigan means something different to me and my family... It's not a family tradition to go to Michigan or anything and I didn't grow up watching Michigan. (I simply wanted to go to the best damn public university in the best damn country on the planet.)
My Michigan Degree means somebody from my family made it.
In the community where I come from it's even bigger. It means somebody from our community made it, and somebody from my high school made it.
I come from a school where we have far more dropouts than college bound kids and probably even more students incarcerated each year than college bound kids. My Michigan degree means a lot here.
I've even gone back to my school to speak to the student body about goals and potential and am involved in the football program mentoring young men and steering them toward college.
I don't know of any other Michigan alumns in my area (although I know there are thousands). So I typically watch the games by myself in the privacy of my home. Sometimes over at a buddy of mine from Michigan's house (he's from Traverse City we went to Law School together).
There's a lady in my church who went to State oddly enough. I'm looking forward to giving her the blues when we beat Sparty this season lol.

If that's his piece he's winning.

|2 years 40 weeks ago||Slightly related||
I was in the choir that got to sing the national anthem at that Lions/Redskins game in DC. It was a good time. Pat O'Brien was the coolest dude in the world. Herman Moore wouldn't shake my hand after the game because I was heckling him during the game. I was maybe 8 years old... lol

|2 years 40 weeks ago||I see the point you're||
I see the point you're making.
But at the same time that's a more specific statement than Mora made. He didn't single out any one school by saying that his school is safe.
Sure USC is their rival... But he could have been talking about Temple.
I still don't see it as negative recruiting. By that logic he could say we have a beautiful southern california climate and be accused of throwing shade at Michigan.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Boxing was my first love and||
Boxing was my first love and I did it for over a decade. I watch almost every ppv event and friday and tuesday night fights. That being said I've watched maybe 10 minutes of olympic boxing. It's just not legit.

Great now my lakers fan friends will be even more insufferable lol
|2 years 40 weeks ago||I don't see anything wrong||
I don't see anything wrong with what he said. For one he didn't name names of any other schools according to what I read.
Also he's right... UCLA's campus is beautiful and in a great part of town. I almost went there instead of Michigan.
Last but not least... What's wrong with talking about campus safety? I know it's an issue for a lot of undergrads and their parents with regard to school choices. What's so different about a coach bringing it up?
|2 years 41 weeks ago||I don't think it's that||
I don't think it's that because I've had numerous upvoted posts etc. But maybe you're on to something.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Who is downvoting a post that||
Who is downvoting a post that doesn't see a problem with kids getting help attending college?
There are some wierdos on the internet boy I tell ya...
|2 years 41 weeks ago||I see no problem with helping||
|2 years 41 weeks ago||I see no problem with helping||
I see no problem with helping a kid attend college and pursue college athletics. It may seem shady or unfair... but realistically so are the societal issues and disadvantages that a lot of kids face. (Not saying that's the case here.
But at the end of the day another kid going to school and playing college ball is good for the student and essentially harms no one else.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Denard winning the Heisman||
Denard winning the Heisman and breaking the NCAA rushing record are what I really want for this year. A win against Alabama Ohio and Lil Bro would be nice as well.
Don't know what the keys are... maybe making sure our WR's come down with arm punts consistently
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Well||
I wish his NFL dreams could have come true for him.
But as someone else said, working with young people is one of the most rewarding things a person can do. He gets to work with them and in a sport he loves. That's not a bad position at all.
I'm glad he landed somewhere so quickly and I hope he uses this spot as a stepping stone (or career if he'd like) toward doing whatever it is he wants to do in life.
Best of luck Kevin!

I'll just leave this here:
|2 years 41 weeks ago||You mean Saturday afternoons?||
I might be the minority but I think they're cool. I think kids will like them.
But then again we played our high school football games on saturday afternoons so what do I know.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||I have to agree with this||
I have to agree with this good gentleman. I do feel like services such as Takeout Taxi are a ripoff so I avoid them.
But when I'm too lazy to go to the store I'm grateful that I live in the best damn country in the universe and that I can make one phone call and have a tasty and hot meal brought to my front door. Amazing.
My only complaint with delivery is when I lived in an apartment building where you had to come down to the lobby. If I wanted to exit my actual private space I would have just walked across the street to the carryout joint.
But all of the above is besides the point. I think on a 20 dollar order 5 bucks is cool.
At the end of the day I would probably spend the extra 3.25 on bullshit anyway. I'd rather the other dude have it for his trouble.

Several states have them. I know Virginia is one. Just FYI

Herm -1 for implying she could possibly be qualified
+1 for your knock on pink clothing on the field of play

I'm happy for her. I think it's a great idea. Long overdue. Now if you'll excuse me gentlemen, I have to fix my wife a brandy and iron her panties for work tomorrow.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||No||
No ring for either.
But then again I didn't attend the graduation ceremony either. Just mail me the diploma.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Boxed under Sugar Ray Leonard||
Boxed under Sugar Ray Leonard as a kid and thought I'd go pro up until maybe 16. Started HB jr. year on a team with 3 future NFL players. Fastest 4x400 time in the nation at Penn Relays sr year but wasn't the fastest on the team by far. Recruited by D1 for football and baseball only UMD for baseball and not great schools for football (including tulane when Rich Rod was there.) Represented U of M in boxing several times (but it was governed by the NCBA not the NCAA after the NCAA dropped boxing). Won IM flag football in law school (lol) Wanted to do MMA after school but too many injuries and other demands on time.

Don't quote me on this cuz I could be mistaken but I read somewhere he was hooping out in Vegas
|2 years 43 weeks ago||Well let me be honest lol||
Alone playing NCAA 13 drinking Svedka... that I put in a Ciroc bottle
That I have kept for months... and routinely fill with Svedka... I offer it to my clients when I have meetings (usually 1-2 a day) Until they can prove to me that they can tell somethings up I shall continue on this path lol
I learned this as a teenager when we used to fill Remy Martin bottles with Paul Masson for the "ladies" who fancied themselves cognac drinkers lmao
Pic Related:It's me enjoying a swig of Svedka.
