"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

- There were ~4 management changes in 2011.
- Last January/February, the Pub carved itself a Thursday night niche with $1 Labatt bottles, but the week the managers started charging $3 cover, the place became desolate.
- The bar would run out of beer some nights, and bartenders would then run to Campus Corner and pay for bottles out of their own pocket.
- This past fall, bartenders/bouncers/busboys never got their hourly wages, and this led to a lawsuit with ownership.
- A couple weeks before it closed down, pitchers of Bud Light were $10.

I just don't feel the need for a self-congratulatory parade in the first place. But I see where you're coming from. Again, there is just an obvious divide in Michigan's fan base.

I was a freshman at UM in 2008, I went to every home game through my four years, both football and basketball. I don't need these hollow platitudes to remind me of why I care deeply about Michigan and its tremendously flawed football team.

Thanks for the thoughtful reply

The freep article? But I'm asking if there are such apparent fan base splits at other schools, not why they exist at Michigan.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||What does it mean if I just||
What does it mean if I just can't get enthused by these rah-rah platitudes? Congrats on our supposed moral victory of running our team "the right way" nowadays (whatever that insinuates), and please join me at the bar as we watch our rivals compete for a championship tonight.

Haha yeah, I meant non-balcony as designated by the stubhub picture of the arena. I have my Ron Coleman jersey so I'm sure everyone in Bloomington will respect that.

A friend and I got lower bowl tickets on craigslist for $300/each a couple weeks ago. Anyone know which bloomington (college) bars will be the most fun after the game?

"Presumably you heard more than the names, but even if you didn't, you should say that, instead of acting like you have info but only want to tell the internet some of it."
...I explicitly stated that I only knew the names and that it was disciplinary.

Absolutely, I'll do that.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Yeah I had actually emailed||
Yeah I had actually emailed Brian earlier in the day. Then, Balas decided to tease the entire fanbase last night with his tweet, and that seemed like a fair time to post what I knew.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||I saw the thread from last||
I saw the thread from last night was locked- should I not post information like that when I hear it? I didn't speculate as to why they were being disciplined, but it was still before the athletic department put out a press release.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||I just know the names, and||
I just know the names, and that they are gone for non-injury reasons.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||I've been visiting this site||
I've been visiting this site daily since 2006 and rarely comment. I have no reason to lie about this, but you all wanted to know who the player was and I was privy to that information. I definitely don't want to be villified for passing it onto you guys.

I wasn't going to say it, but yeah.

Floyd is gone, y'all. And a couple more, but not as significant as him. Not trolling.

Not an injury

I've lived on Mary since the Pub opened, and even worked a couple shifts when they were undermanned.
The bar was just not using its space well (the downstairs was always empty and those huge tables were inefficient). Packard Pub was doing okay for a couple months, but in my opinion, trying to cash in on those Thursdays by charging cover ultimately led to its downfall.

I have an extra Row 1 student ticket, anyone that wants it can meet up with me in NOLA. Face value, if you want it: firstname.lastname@example.org

I think students are 126/127. Also, I have an extra ticket for Row 1 Section 127 if anyone's interested- email@example.com

Yeah at least three of AP, FWAA, AFCA, Sporting News and WCFF have to select him for the NCAA 'consensus' honors. Since he has three, that means he'll be Michigan's 78th All-American, right?

Too much of the word 'chet' in this thread.

From the Maize Rage President in an email:
"It should also be noted that we are going to have a Selection Sunday showing at Crisler Arena next Sunday, so we will discuss our plans for that, as well."
See you all at Crisler.

I wish it were longer. I don't know... at just under 40 minutes, it just doesn't seem as substantial as I was hoping it would be.
That being said, I love "Codex" and "Lotus Flower."
Edit: If there were a second part, when would it theoretially be released? I don't want to get my hopes up because I don't want to feel bitter at TKOL if this is its whole.

This picture makes me less depressed about the whole thing.
EDIT: and this:

I suppose I just expected more from Brandon. I can support our head coach while still despising the firing of Rodriguez and the pathetic debacle of a coaching search that our AD has performed.

Four Lokos. Enough said.

Haha yeah I sniped that font off right as I was Gaussian-blurring the hell out of that photo.
I am as bad at Photoshop as Denard is good at the zone read, so I'm thinking you should start making us all some wallpapers this week?

Hey guys, I suck at Photoshop, but I put this together a few days ago for my computer. A couple of you might be lookin' for a new background after Denardfest today:
