It's an amazing album. GKMC was, for me at least, one of the all-time greats, and I wouldn't quite say the same thing about Butterfly (yet anyway). But it's still amazing. "u" had me in tears. Hearing Pac on the outro made my jaw drop. I'm just gonna repost my reddit comment on the subject:
It really is an immensely dense album. Unlike GKMC it doesn't really have one unifying theme, but many - black culture, self esteem, the "pimping" of rap artists and black culture generally by America.... If I had one bone to pick it would be that the meaning is so convoluted at times that it doesn't always land as well as I feel it should. There are some songs like u (Kendrick's best in my opinion) and Blacker the Berry that are just so raw and emotional, they're incredible. But there are others on the album that left me somewhat underwhelmed, if only because they were so difficult to decipher. This isn't necessarily a bad thing - having more to digest can be good too - but it does detract from the overall feel at times and for me it's the difference between a 9/10 and a 10/10.

If that album made you feel on top of the world you weren't listening very closely. No offense.... Outside of "i" the bulk of the album is depressing or at the very least darkly political.

I like to think I had a big role in that one :D

Much as I really want to say "go for it, have fun"... if it were me, I would definitely feel out of place. The student section is full of rowdy 18-22 year olds, and as a student myself I can't say I see many adults there. If you can just own it and have fun in that sort of environment then absolutely go for it, but if you have hangups about standing all game and getting some weird looks from drunk students, those are probably legitimate hangups. Just my $.02

3:05 was nice too. He looked good in this video, it's nice to see that he still has that great arm he came in with, despite how bad he looked the past two years. I still think his biggest challenges are going to be decision making and consistency in his throws, which we obviously can't glean from a video like this. Still, he looked good.

Kicked off isn't the same as having their charter pulled, which is done by their national fraternity and not UM. To answer your question though, they have not gotten back on campus yet (though they tried and failed this year).

Sure, if Calvin Johnson was a great but not game-changing WR and Reggie Wayne was a 24 year old all star...

Fair enough and like I said I agree with all of you. Just figured I'd share since it's relevant.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I heard from a sorority||
I heard from a sorority member affected that they did basically the same amount of damage last year that they did this year but were never kicked out or reprimanded, and the going theory is that Treetops only invited them back so that they could kick them out and sue them later.
I'm 100% of the belief that this was ridiculously immature behavior and those involved deserve whatever punishment they have coming... but I do believe at this point that Treetops (which is going through a bankruptcy) is just trying to make a buck off of them.

I don't understand why someone insists on commenting this at the beginning of every single thread. It looks like this is going over fine. Keep it to yourself.

A friend of mine is on the "Board of Directors" or whatever and she messaged me asking to "endorse" it on facebook, etc. I don't understand why they can't just give up.

The daily puts out a ton of content, and a lot of it is trash. Not excusing this article, but just saying that if we're going to post all of the ridiculous stuff they publish we're going to need a bigger board.

I don't know guys, JJ Watt was a 2-star and he's great so I think stars are stupid and I don't understand them and I hate them and let's get rid of camps and recruiting services and coaches need to recruit based off intangibles alone since they're the most important and I want players who have the "it" factor and not someone who some stoopid "expert" says is good at "technique" or is "athletic"
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Big 12 commissioner Bob||
Uhh what? Because the one thing that keeps freshmen athletes from being good students is running around for 3 hours on a Saturday instead of sitting on the bench for 3 hours. How does that make sense? Freshmen who were ineligible would still practice nonstop, still be on the team, still socialize with football players, still have access to an academic support staff that does all of their work for them, and still be at schools that hey often have no business being at adacemically. So what does this solve?

Your interpretation is correct. Like, know their ABC's, but quite literally need people to help them read material presented at an academic/legal level.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||That any fan base outside of||
That any fan base outside of maybe Stanford or Northwestern prides their sports teams on their relative academic rigor is laughable. We take kids who are dumb as bricks so long as they can play football, same as OSU, same as MSU, same as Middle Tennessee State. Our school as a whole may be superior but it's silly to think that extends into athletics.

Didn't Harbaugh take 2 QBs per year at Stanford? I wouldn't assume that taking Peters would preclude us from recruiting Costello as well (though it may make it harder to land him).

Same. I almost had to retake 7th grade since I had 0 work ethic at that point, never really got into extra curriculars in high school, and am now on pace to graduate with honors. Kids have to grow at least in part on their own. My parents, thankfully, encouraged me to pursue my strengths and didn't freak me out about what I was doing "wrong."
