I lost my dad 4 years ago to lung cancer. He was diagnosed 5 days before the birth of my son and then gone 2 months later. It was terrible. Fuck cancer indeed. Sorry for you loss.

"I'm from Ohio not Michigan"
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Glazer has come across as||
Glazer has come across as very professional and cautious. His sources are obviously nfl guys and he is being fed the nfl side of things. I don't think he's wrong, the raiders probably are waiting for jh to tell them no.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||John Clayton just said on nfl||
John Clayton just said on nfl radio that harbaugh to Michigan is 100 percent and that harbaugh is contacting nfl coaches to follow him to Ann arbor
|30 weeks 2 days ago||High school friend and San||
High school friend and San Fran sports anchor. If anyone knows, he does.

Yeah wasn't that Jerome baker?

That's true. I am trying my damnedest to keep from getting too sure of this.
|31 weeks 1 day ago||This could also mean that a||
This could also mean that a nfl team can fire it's GM and coach and make a lucrative offer to harbaugh without having to mortgage its future to get him. Seems like this could be bad news.
|31 weeks 3 days ago||Marcellus Wiley played with||
Marcellus Wiley played with Maurice Williams while with the Jaguars. I would bet that this is Wiley's source. I'd also be willing to bet that Williams is feeding Wiley the same rumors we have heard before.

Unfortunately devin's internal clock starts at 15 seconds instead of the standard 5.
|41 weeks 14 hours ago||Oh you mean that loss at||
Oh you mean that loss at home? Moral victories are not victories.
|41 weeks 1 day ago||If this joke of a coaching||
If this joke of a coaching staff is back next year I will not be watching a single game. They should all get the ax right after The Game. That would cement our status as irrelevant and a middling at best big ten team.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||Well, than I am convinced!||
Well, than I am convinced!
|41 weeks 2 days ago||And this is the current state||
And this is the current state of our program, where the highlight of the night is a guy dancing and not much else.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||Or just doing his job to||
Or just doing his job to relate interesting information.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||Its nice we can have a crowd||
Its nice we can have a crowd many teams enjoy every game, once a year
|41 weeks 2 days ago||This record is just a product||
This record is just a product of us being terrible...
|41 weeks 2 days ago||It was an honest question.||
It was an honest question. Everybody is going to have different experiences when it comes to school, sports, and work. I just find it ridiculous to penalize a student athlete for charging a few bucks for an autograph.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||Were you a division 1 athlete||
Were you a division 1 athlete who was expected to practice year round and maintain grades while traveling across the country?
I suspect that earning money is a little harder for athletes than it is for normal college students. Lord knows it was for me when I was school and I only played division 3 football. Its easier said then done to earn money when you practice 3-6 every day, have class before that, gameday on Saturday, and homework on Sunday. Then in the offseason you have voluntary workouts (which are not really voluntary), spring practice, etc.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||It may not be brought up in||
It may not be brought up in any other circumstance because everyone else is free to profit off their fame and likeness.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||You can allow players to||
You can allow players to charge for autographs and still ban booster payments, corporate payments, and agent activity. Signing autographs for 20 bucks is supply and demand.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||I understand it is against||
I understand it is against the rules. He is obviously being punished for his actions. I disagree with the rule and the implementation of it. We all know scholarships do not cover the full cost of attendance, let's give them the opportunity to take advantage of their fame.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||Which is how it should be. I||
Which is how it should be. I know your post was not anti-gurley in anyway. Its just surprising to me that the NCAA still will punish an athlete for taking advantage of his/her own fame.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||College athletes should have||
College athletes should have the right to profit off their own signatures. He charged between 8 and 25 bucks a piece. Considering that many players come from families and areas that impoverished, I don't consider this a big deal at all.

So Harbaugh will be our coach and Brandon a reporter? Didnt see that coming...
|42 weeks 2 days ago||This attitude is on display||
This attitude is on display for the world to see every Saturday. This actually explains a lot.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||I hear 7am is an up and||
I hear 7am is an up and comer, maybe you could jump on the wagon?
|42 weeks 2 days ago||You are a fucking moron. Hoke||
You are a fucking moron. Hoke should at most get the rest of this season and then be sent packing. Thsi team is terrible and has regressed in every facet of the game.
|43 weeks 9 hours ago||This was inevitable and it is||
This was inevitable and it is better to happen now than in February. The key here is getting Brandon and Hoke as far away from Ann Arbor as possible, fill the vacancies with competent people this time, let them do their thing.
