Ah yes. Perfect logic. One shit game is why a whole people can't get into a sport. I suppose you will never be able to get into football ever again because of the Rutgers game last year as well?

|1 week 3 days ago||I dunno, the whole last||
I dunno, the whole last decade of UM football is just littered with unfulfilled expectations, to me this is just another unfortunate sacrifice to poor management and coaching.
|1 week 5 days ago||Microsoft just recently||
Microsoft just recently signed a contract with the department of defense for 3 years and $617 million dollar software deal. So Michigan has some catching up to do, and yes, I understand the difference between the military and amateur sports. This just provides a little perspective.

That UT/VT game was planned long before Hackett took over. They were probably looking for a second game and approached UM.

If it is said speedway, this poster will be very disappointed, considering he lives 5 minutes down the road from said speedway.
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||I kind of see your point, but||
I kind of see your point, but convincing someone to do something against their own interests using lies or misleading data is not usually OK. In fact, in most industries and professional fields, that's usually against the rules or laws.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I did the exact same thing||
I did the exact same thing and don't regret it a bit. But then again, I was probably addicted to my TV, so cutting the cable was good for me even beyond the savings.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Well considering the very||
Well considering the very first comment gives the real one away...
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Why isn't there a "None of||
Why isn't there a "None of the above" choice. None are highlightery enough for me.

Depends. How much will shit cost me compared to Adidadidias?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Agree. Honestly, I haven't||
Agree. Honestly, I haven't been that impressed with her so far. Or at least she hasn't lived up to expectations. DiCicco called it out on air; when she has her back to goal she turns the ball over. Germany will know that cold.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||That was a really tough||
That was a really tough physical game as well. Lots of fouls, and both teams looked gassed at the end. And the US gets Rapinoe and Holiday back. Should be a good game. Really hope the US can pull it out, but I still doubt they can win it.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Shame it ended with only 1||
Shame it ended with only 1 goal, but it definitely looked like the US' best game in the tourney so far. I think taking out the usual veterans, especially Wambach, really helped shake up the offensive flow.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||You may have never heard||
You may have never heard about these cash rewards, but you haven't not heard they don't not exist, haven't you?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I think the coaches get a||
I think the coaches get a cash reward for unused scholarships, so that's probably what this was all about.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Being a sports fan with no||
Being a sports fan with no connection personally to the people on the team (and that's the vast majority of all of us) is an inherently irrational venture to begin with. I've just chose to fully embrace the irrationality. It makes things much less stressful. So, yeah, Harbaugh coaches at UM, which is the team I'm a fan of, so whatever he does is fine. As long as he wins.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||UM cannot legally talk about||
UM cannot legally talk about this to the public due to privacy laws. Pipkins can say whatever he wants, and UM can only give PR appropriate 'he's still part of the team' reponses. Just the law man. We'll never know what really happened from both sides.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Yes. Exactly. Do you not||
Yes. Exactly. Do you not yet know that this is how sports fandom works?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Sources, man. Sources.||
Sources, man. Sources.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, I don't get it. UM is||
Yeah, I don't get it. UM is coming into this season under the limit anyway right? And Pipkins is a senior so they don't need him to quit now to make room for the next class. Unless this all happened in the spring and they were still trying to get another transfer in?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Because Harbaugh is front||
Because Harbaugh is front page material, that's why. This stuff has been re-hashed a hundred times with Bama, but Saban has been doing it for like 7 years and won a bunch of Nattys, so no one cares anymore. But Harbaugh sells right now.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Also included: Pipikins is||
Also included: Pipikins is transfering. Harbaugh apparently didn't invite him to fall camp.
Woowee, Harbaugh continues to be interesting. Both good and bad.
But damn, it's so disappointing toee Pipkins' career arc. I was probably more excited for him than any other recruit under Hoke not named Jabrill Peppers. I have no idea about his medical fitness, but this does reek of shadiness. And here I was most ashamed that he never got his redshirt his frosh year. But hey, as I said before, Harbaugh coaches for UM, so whatever he does is OK now so long as UM wins.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Often with Harbaugh, I||
Often with Harbaugh, I honestly cannot determine if he knows exactly what he's doing, or if he has no idea what he's doing.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||My god, Harbaugh is just||
My god, Harbaugh is just going to provide endless amusement even during the offseason. Eleventy billion times more interesting than Hoke for sure.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Does any other coach coach||
Does any other coach coach for UM?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, but Harbaugh coaches||
Yeah, but Harbaugh coaches for UM now, so I don't care about the moral or ethical wrong doings as long as UM wins and the NCAA stays of UM's back.
|5 weeks 5 hours ago||This is like the late Carr||
This is like the late Carr era of US teams. Solid on D, still better talent than most, but seeming unwilling to adapt to your talent and stubbornly stuck a system irregardless of sub-par results on offense.
