An ice rink for ANTS??! The Derek Zoolander Yost South Arena should be at least...THREE TIMES THIS LARGE!
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||I guess not||
It was funnier 5 years ago when GSimmons83 (?? I forget the #) was a regular poster and people called him 'gsimms.'
The good news is that if I just type 'gp' [\tab] the computer just knows what I was going to type next...

What road to the college football playoff isn't blocked by top quality coaches at top quality programs?
OSU just lost to a terrible Virginia Tech team, and then went undefeated in a terrible big ten, and made the playoffs. Please find me an easier route to the playoffs than through the big ten.

Hope you're doing well, dude.
edit: the kcp zinger, I mean.

That Devin's moral code does not allow for stealing does not imply that he loves crab legs any less.
The same can be said of obtaining sex from women, for that matter.

After watching Funchess not block all season, I refuse to blame his lack of production on the same quarterback who made Jeremy Gallon Michigan's all time leading receiver.

this has happened before. But above, I was too lazy to find the link. Since you asked again, I decided to find one.
Here, "secret scrimmage" is not something Beilein hasn't done at Michigan before:
|9 weeks 6 days ago||correct.||
also, this is not the first year michigan has done this. I am too lazy to find a link, but I am positive Beilein has had one of these at least once before.

Reindeer people hiding in the city limits? What the hell are you kids watching/playing/whatever these days?
|11 weeks 11 hours ago||I don't know really||
but apparently most people agree with me.
|11 weeks 14 hours ago||exactly||
any other view and the AD is admitting everyone hates them. Just like Brandon threw Hoke under the buss over the concussion business, the entire AD is throwing the players under the bus saying that 'terrible, fair weather' Michigan fans hate all Michigan players to take the spotlight off of themselves.
I friggin' hate Brandon and his band of B-school* clowns.
*And not like the cool B-school people I knew, but like the annoying B-shoolers I didn't know but generalized that they were douchey.

|13 weeks 2 days ago||only from stupid people who||
only from stupid people who believe that FIAR and DESIAR are the only things that win football games. Talent and good execution win football games. Poor execution is reflective of poor teaching. Poor teaching is on the coaches.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||right, but, like in poker,||
right, but, like in poker, you should not judge a person's decision based on what happened, only on what was likely to happen. If you pay 50% of the pot chasing 4 outs to the river, you were wrong whether you hit one of the 4 outs or not. You are not a genius if your 2 pair becomes a full house, you are dumb because your two pair was not likely to improve.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||missing the point||
it is not super likely that darboh will be on the field for the first play. Hoke flat out said in 21 personnel Jehu would be the 2nd receiver on the field.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||yes.||
On our best days, we get about a dozen. But it's usually about half that. The good news is the livery stable is tiny, so even if only 6 show, we are still the main crowd in the bar (or just have the place to ourselves).
The M game will always be on, and the bartenders like us.

That's kind of what I figured, thanks. Is there any way to 'copy' the map?

|38 weeks 6 days ago||He dated our next door||
He dated our next door neighbor, a nice young woman on the swim team. A lot of swim team girls lived next to us, and they were all super nice.
We always felt he didn't seem like the nicest guy, but I imagine being friendly all the time when you're a celebrity is tiring, so it could just be that.
|47 weeks 2 days ago||I get that. I think||
I get that. I think football's a bit different. [Most] coaches don't wear suits. Lots of coordinators really get amped. You just don't see it in hoops, and it looks out of place to me.
Plus did I mention Crean's a dick?
|47 weeks 2 days ago||Ha, fair enough. I suppose I||
Ha, fair enough. I suppose I only speak for myself. Personally, I believe MSU plays better/more physical defense than I've seen out of Michigan like ever. If slapping the floor helps them mentally or physically lock in to their defensive goals and mindset, fine.
I just think it looks awful silly when a head coach jumps around in the sideline like that. Most NCAA coaches agree with me, as I can only think of a few (like I said before, Matta is the only other B1G guy that comes to mind) who behave that way.
Also to be clear: I am no complaining about becoming excited/animated. It is doing the things that are normally reserved for players. Jumping around in celebration, waving arms to incite the crowd, interacting with the crowd/players/the other team's bench in any way.
When Crean slaps the floor, I'm pretty sure it's more about being pumped or something than a coaching point to his team to focus on defense (note ridiculously huge fist pump after he does). Crean and Matta do this crap a lot, and it annoys me.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||You'd think||
that by purposely butchering your/you're three times in a row it would be clear that I was making fun of Mr. Internet-Cool-Police-Man-Cop who called me an idiot and misused your/you're at the same time.
Ugh, mods get in here and just delete this thread already. I completely regret it.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||Tom Crean only.||
We make fun of him because he's a dick. If he was a nice dude, and looked like exactly like a mix of Tom Brady and Jim Carrey, I wouldn't mention it.
He's a dick, it's dumb the way he jumps around on the sideline. That is it.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||Kids:||
sure. Tom Crean: no.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||it was funny 5 years ago||
My guess is you have no idea who the original gsimms around these parts was...
|47 weeks 3 days ago||cool for the same reason||
cool for the same reason blowing kisses to the crowd is cool, because FYS.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||You're stern admonishment has||
You're stern admonishment has really humbled me. I hope my apology meets you're standards, as I really hope your able to forgive me.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||I agree, and to be honest I||
I agree, and to be honest I only tried to find this clip because everyone here is all excited about it.
That being said, I think it's absolutely ridiculous to see a 50 year old man doing that crap. I've always hated the Crean/Matta (as much as Izzo gets animated, I don't think he does this type of thing) type coaches that wave their arms around to incite the crowd to cheer, and this is the most ridiculous example I have ever seen of that type of behavior.
|48 weeks 1 day ago||No offense||
Why would I in any way be offended by that comment, except for the fact that it is lead off with "No offense, but..." ?
For what it's worth, I am an engineer as well, and I think you're incorrect.
