Can't think of any reason not to make this a sign
|9 hours 27 min ago||The opening scene||
In inglorious bastards is an amazing scene. I really thought Tarantino did a great job with this film overall. I think in all of his films, some of the scenes are a little too Tarantino, but most of the time I enjoy his work.
I finally watched wolf of Wall Street and hated it. It actually felt like Scorsese was trying to emulate Tarantino but didn't do a good job of it. Which is probably ironic since I'm guessing Tarantino was aping Scorsese in some of his work.

I used to get sick on the airplane a lot as a kid (thank god the smoking is gone). One time I didn't have time to get some Dramamine, but my dad was big into the "it's all in your head" thing so my mom stuck me next to him. After a full plate of spaghetti for in flight meal, it came all out. I'm sure it was horrible for the rest of the passengers.

My wife and I bought an iBook laptop 5 years ago and I still struggle with it as I have always used pcs. It sounds like things have changed greatly as late 90s early 2000s everyone used the PCs over macs, especially on north campus where hundreds of macs stood idle.
My first time on the Internet was senior year in high school in 98. Someone logged me on and I didn't know how it worked so didn't do anything. I was really suprised in my freshman year when I was the only one in one of my discussions who hadn't been on the Internet. Luckily I've never had to deal with dial up because all the dorms had something else (can't remember name) that was fast.

Not guilty does not mean innocent. It mearly means that a jury of your peers or judge does not have enough evidence or has enough reasonable doubt to provide a not guilty plea.
This can be a result of a lot of things, such as damning evidence that is thrown out due to how it was obtained.
If someone commits murder, and is found not guilty in court, it does not mean that they are innocent.
|2 weeks 7 hours ago||Great analysis||
This was well layed out explanation as I followed about 90% of what you stated. The maps and visuals help a lot. It will be interesting to see the starting 5 OL next year work in unison. They are going to have to be a strength as the skill positions get set.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah.||
Whitfield came over from the track team and is only 5'4". Small backs that are very fast can be effective if they can hide behind offensive lineman and hit holes quickly. They also can be hard to get a good hit on. He has to have very good burst, vision, and balance, but he can be a decent role player. I know LSU had a tiny player that was very fast that got a whole lot of yards.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Ok. Thanks||
I missed what you were going for. That makes sense about all around. Smith definitely does not have the speed to attack the edge. I really hope Isaac has some speed and moves. Don't know a lot about him, but his running style seemed upright in his USC highlights, which doesn't seem good for power up the middle. I'm really suprised that Michigan hasn't been able to find their guy yet. It has been a long time since Michigan had an above average BIG back.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||In regards to green||
I really hope he is not our best back. I know some are high on him, but I have seen very little to make him even an average back in the BIG. His speed is just ok, and I've yet to see a modicum of power that should come with his size. His balance just doesn't seem that good and his reads are only so so. His high school tape was a lot of outrunning players to the edge, which is where he picked up some of his big gains last year.
I know the offensive line plays a role, but he's had his times into the LBs and secondary and I haven't seen the moves, power, or speed that I'd expect from a top running back. Really hope Johnson comes back or they use the little track star who may find success by staying low and using his speed to hit holes.

there was something appealing about peeing on the wall in the old bathrooms. When the whole wall was a urinal, the waits seemed pretty small for the mens. I am guessing the women were very happy about the renovation.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I liked the lettering||
but the press box itself was a major eyesore. It looked cheap in comparison to everything else.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Very much agree||
Had season tickets from 98-02 and just loved the atmosphere. When they put the second level above in 03, I sat at the top of the lower bleachers and was suprised how quiet is was. Now when I go back, everything seems so stale and clean. Its weird to see people attend games now who have no intention of watching as they sit in big comfy chairs. There is really no need to have more than score, time, shots, and penalty minutes on a scoreboard, so all the new score board is used for is to distract with ads and dumb games.
Still a fun time, but the magic is gone. Or maybe I'm just now old, and attending games as a student just can't be replicated.

|3 weeks 5 days ago||I miss Ferry Field||
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Like the Adidas||
Like the bright yellow over the Orange yellow
|3 weeks 6 days ago||The maize stripe on the sleeves||
reminds me of the halo on the big house.
Also, with the sleeves so short, I really don't think there is anything more necessary than just the number on the shoulder.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Maize around numbers||
is sublte, but gives dimension to the numbers. Also, as you stated, like Lebowski's rug, it really ties things together.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Good point about the home/home unis in The Game||
This would also prevent both programs from using that game to do a unique design for that one game. Brings nice nestalgia to me.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Was going to state the same||
I think Devin looks awesome up there. Take away the patch and white with large thick Blue numbers and maize outline on front/back and sleeve looks good to me.
I'm probably being heretical here, becuse it is the adidas jersey that I think looks the best, but then again, I also like adidas version of Maize better too. Just a personal preference, but the bright yellow really pops against the dark blue. The true maize always looked orangy (its a word now) to me.
I wouldn't mind if the sleeve numbers got switched to the sugar bowl stripes. If they ever did a throwback white pants (not a preference of mine, but I know a lot would like it) having two similar large stripes on the side of the pants (straight stripes, none of this organic crap), would make the design work together and would save the pants from looking like long underwear.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||No offense||
but what you are arguing now is purely linguistics. In the context of Harbaughs statement, he stated that he thinks (truly or not) that his worth (value to your statement above) to the University is less than $5 million. I know you are not a lawyer, but it seems you are playing games with technicality of the meaning of the word rather than the intent of the word.
Your argument still doesn't hold value. I sold my car to my brother for nothing. That does not mean that it was worth nothing (he sold it years later for a few hundred dollars), but my brother was going back to school to change careers and I had just gotten my first job and wanted a new car. You can't simply say Jim Harbaughs worth is $5 million when his market value is probably much higher, but he chose this salary in part, because of his love for the University.
Your argument seems to be purely based on a technicality of a word, and even then doesn't hold up very well.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Yes and No||
Yes, goods are only worth what people are willing to pay for them. The housing market is insane in some areas right now. My neighbor bought in 2010 and, without doing anything to the house, is going to make a good deal because there is now a better market for the same house.
When it comes to the business world, I would definitely not say that everyone is worth what they are making. There are plenty of times that someone comes in with a great resume and smooth talking and gets hired, only to learn that they can't perform the job they are hired for, and it's 6 months of pain or more before you let them go.
There is also a great deal of cronyism/ nepotism, buddies club in the business world that allows for inflated payments for unqualified people. I know at my company that the people running it, ran with very little oversight, hired and paid their friends or gave inflated contracts to friends to do work, only to run the company into bancruptcy. This doesn't even get into people that are just better at negotiating their salaries.
So yes, there was someone willing to pay someone a huge salary, but their worth was not what they were making. Note this can also work on the flip side, as there are people who could get more that don't, because they'd rather pass on those to others. I think Harbaugh and the CEO of Costco are two examples of people who could have gotten more and than what they are paid.
|4 weeks 34 min ago||I hate stickers||
To me it's similar to putting a bumper sticker on a car.
If we are going to have them, How about maize smiley faces for good plays and frowny faces for bad plays.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks for making me not the only one||
I was trying to imagine some jumbo set in the backfield or some weird TE configuration and trying to imagine Peppers not being able to catch up. Reminds me we have a very young recieving group.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I grew up playing a lot of soccer||
and still play soccer in my 30s. I've also attended a match in Germany that was one of the best sporting events I've ever been to. With that said, I really watch very little soccer. For some reason it doesn't translate live to television for me. I agree that Lacrosse could grow quickly in the next decade as it skyrocketed this last decade.
A nice combination of soccer, football, and hockey.

I usually am not a fan of the NIT, but I had the same feeling you did in regards to this team. They are fun to watch play. It seemed as if the light went on for a lot of the young players and the offense started to take shape.
Next year will be interesting. I think their offense comes up a lot. Maybe not as efficient as the previous two years, but on the flip side, it appears the defense should be much tougher than we've had previously.
I wonder how Beilein will split the minutes. Last few years have been a lot of minutes for startes, but now he has a legitimate bench to play with too.
