Looks like you still got trolled. Luckily you were able to edit response. Rule of thumb, never feed them

He knew what he was doing when he released the tweet I'm sure with the timing. What he probably didn't expect was what he was signing up for and what the backlash would be if it wasn't something huge.
This is just a leason learned in business.

In addition to Michigan tech being much better since he arrived, Michigan has had a drop in season performance from previous years. It is assumed he also had a large part in the amazing run Red had of consecutive NCAA tournament appearances.

This is the first time I have ever heard the word Meritocracy. I am assuming that it has something to do with "this is a merit based program"? Anyways, for those who also didn't know what it was when they saw it, know that there is at least one other.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Martin was pretty good||
He brought us into the black, rebuilt a bunch of old facilities, and brought in Bielien. He didn't do the best job at getting a football coach, but he did land a very good college football coach, just a disaster in how it was handled.
Canham is really a hard act to replicate. Not being Don Canham is similar to not being Peppers. There is a lot of room to still be pretty good.

With Brian such a hockey fan, "Bubba" would be an awesome name or nickname.
Also, probably can't pick up tickets today, so my options are more for Brian than for the tickets.

I had this in other thread, but didn't know there would be a naming thread.
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm hoping it's||
Captain Crunch Cook
But that's just me.

Ol' Barry likes to coach in the bowls so he makes sure his coaches leave before the bowls.

Porsche from Doc Hollywood. My Grandad had a 356C that I would have love to have, but it was way too expensive to keep.
I'm also a sucker for the DBS in Bond. I actually went to the dealership in Troy after the movie to check those and the Vantage out and the dealership started it up.

|1 week 4 days ago||Another huge chunk||
came on that 3rd down run when the patriots LB didn't get to the hole quick enough.
|1 week 4 days ago||I was suprised||
how poor the Patriots run game was. It never seemed like they broke past the line. You'd expect at least some runs of 7-10 yards.
I loved to see Brady's run for the first down though. It took me back to college and watching him run then. He rarely ran, but when he did, he somehow managed to pick up 10-15 yards in the most slow unathletic way possible.

Not to say that this couldn't have been handled better,
but I recieved my acceptance letter to UofM in the October time frame, but it still could have been pulled if I tanked my classes from then on.
If he was good enough to play for Michigan, then he should easily find another landing spot in the BIG. If he doesn't find a spot easily, it might mean that other schools came to the same conclusion Harbaugh did.
I'd prefer Harbaugh take the call and lay this all out earlier, but it sounds like it could have been said in November and the hint was not taken over the dead period.

I Think it's a bear.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Odds are they are probably your basic white, cotton, underpants||
but I sort of think, well, maybe they're silk panties, or maybe it's a thong. Maybe it's something really cool I don't even know about. You know I started feeling....
What? What, I thought we were in the trust tree in the nest, were we not?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I wouldn't worry about UofM||
not getting to tell their side for multiple reasons:
1. In Harbaugh we Trust- There is a large group of fans that provide this statement when ever there is any questioning of why The coach might do something. I agree that Harbaugh should get the benefit of the doubt on 95% of the things he does, but to believe someone is perfect is bad for both the person having to live up to that, and to all blind following
2. In 99% of recruiting, the school holds all the power. From offering, to being able to change the offer after a player has given up rights, the school is vastly more protected than the player. Except the top 1% of recruits, the rest have limited power
3. Maybe Swenson doesn't really like all the publicity from this. The only reason that it is news is that over the last 15 years, we've moved from knowing a handful of top recruits, to knowing a lot about every recruit with an offer. This is a lot of publicity foor kids who haven't even graduated yet.
Just food for thought.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The Man Who Knew too Little||
is highly underrated. That russian dance scene always has me in stiches. Never understood how it's not on more comedy lists.
Not an embarassing movie.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||A Great film||
I've watched it many times and own the soundtrack.
Also, Jennifer love Hewitt, I watch the Ghost Whisperer with my wife because man, that girls been my crush for forever.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The originals I loved||
The remake, not so much. Thanks for trying to set people straight here.
I really thought the original Tron was great, but it got a lot of heat for being lame. Never understood that, as it got plenty of play on the ol betamax growing up.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||About a Boy||
I think this is a hugely underated movie. I've seen it a bunch and find it really funny. thought it was going to be horrible. I highly recommend this movie, even if it's embarrassing.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I agree with this pick||
embarrassing and I like it. Also like the Failure to Launch movie.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Ugh||
how can you guys like that movie? They fly the lady out and listen to her story for 2.5 hours and then she dumps the thing they are spending millions for, into the ocean. Why on earth did she keep that stupid thing for so long? Also, I feel bad for the guy she must have ended up marrying. In the end she wants to end up with some fling she had 80 years ago, rather than the guy she started a family with.
I like "Who's got Mail" for an embarrassing film. Can't get much more 90s and corny than that movie, but I like it.
Also, agree with everyone else that A League of Their Own, is not a movie to be ashamed of liking. It's funny, has a good story line. I see it as one of the top sports movies out there.

I mean, for 1, we get dinosaurs, for 2, we now have a renewable source for oil. Win-Win-Win.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Glad I didn't jump||
in 2008 to a deep sea oil drilling equipment company. They were rolling in money, with all sorts of bonuses and incredible pay. One guy I was on the interview with, took a job and then had another offer when he went to church the first week he was there.
Just appears that no industry is safe. Maybe consider heading to Michigan? there are tons of jobs here. Our company is having a hard time finding good people.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I did||
and now I regret that decision.
