But he put a lot of thought into that punch. He wasn't threatened or in danger. He also ran away and lied to the police as there was no elbow shove or threat. There was a death just a few months ago on a soccer field when a player sucker punched a ref. I don't see a whole lot of difference here except York was lucky his punch wasn't fatal. I don't see how he is being treated unfarely here. I'm sure if the victim was you or one of your loved ones, you'd be singing a slightly different tune.
I don't think he can't still contribute to society, but he has made a long hard road for himself. There was a football player a few years ago that seriously injured a hockey player. I thought he got off easy, but his long hard road was well deserved.

is better than seven army nation along with the Go Blue chant played by the band.
They are both a million times better than Build me up butter cup, sweet caroline, and Don't stop believing, that I believe retract from an intense intimidating atmosphere. If it was just occasionaly seven nation army, maybe a lose yourself, with mostly band, I could live with it. Piped in music to me, detracts as much as it helps.
There have been plenty of times before the piped in music when the big house was rocking. I think the loudest was during the ND game in 2009. Everyone was cheering and into the game.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yup||
I failed to see this elbow bump that initiated this. And Csonte sure didn't come off as scared until he took off after he laid out the other kid. With the video I hope it is a quick decision to dismiss him permantely from both the team and University.
You know what's tough Csonte? Being the bigger man and walking away.
|1 week 1 day ago||I didn't say it did||
however, you were making the point that Seven Army Nation has helped. I believe it has not helped win or lose a game so saying there is the benefit of adding home field advantage is moot.
If you want to say you like it, go ahead, but I was refuting a specific point you made for why it was good.
|1 week 1 day ago||Home Field Advantage||
I bet Michigan's record (percentage wise) was better before seven army nation.
|1 week 1 day ago||Wow||
So a public apology from the staff member who went through one of the toughest events one must go through is the same to you as if Brian had just said "shipped these out later cause I made more money if I did, dolla dolla bills ya'll". How can you not see the difference here?
|1 week 1 day ago||I don't drink Oberon||
So I don't fully understand why you would be mad about missing the 6th bottle. I mean, think of how much more Oberon will be available to the people in Chicago now, who drink way more beer than where you drink beer. I mean, this makes sense for Oberon since they will make more money, plus it gives people in Chicago (a larger a market) a chance to drink more of the product. I mean what are you going to do, STOP buying more Oberon and drink a different beer or maybe another liquor? HA, you are just mad to be mad.
|1 week 1 day ago||Those are not in anyway similar||
Those examples of losing money on a new car or buying an old game are not similar. Those are both relatively known at purchase. The fans who purchased the tickets were lead to believe that they were getting a product that they were not going to get. This is not an ethical way to run the AD.
If you are as furgal as you say you are, this should not be a difficult concept to understand.
|1 week 1 day ago||I don't have season tickets||
but there are many good reasons to be mad as a season ticket holder that should not be dismissed by Brandon or the commentors on here.
The argument is not whether an outdoor game in Chicago is a good or bad idea. If you are bringing this up in december last year, then I believe you would get a pretty good overall agreement from both season ticket holders and non season ticket holders. I think a game against Wisconsin would be great, as Michigan hasn't played them often and it is almost in the middle of two pretty great hockey powers that are relatively close to Chicago.
The outrage comes from the fact that the AD promised a 15% decrease to season ticket holders and the way they partly accomplished this was to take away a marque game AFTER the season ticket holders assumed (rightfully) they had paid for it.
I am suprised at the number of great commentors that are so obtuse when it comes to understanding where the outrage comes from.
|1 week 1 day ago||Haiku closing arguments?||
Promises were made
Yet ticket prices higher
It's all your fault sieve
Sorry, I'm an engineer so I don't really understand.
|1 week 1 day ago||I heard that||
season ticket holders can get 50% off two pops if they just buy one. That is a 50% savings!! I don't see how people can get upset about saving money.
|1 week 2 days ago||Was watching Kovacs in OSU 2011 game||
and I forgot how good he was. I think he was a huge part of the reason the defense was as good as it was. With Martin and VanBergen getting the line set up and Kovacs getting everyone in the back 7 in position, the players all just seemed to react, and Kovacs was so disruptive on blitzes and breaking up screens.
I'm hoping the veteren defense has some guys that can get everyone in the right position to just go.
|1 week 2 days ago||Kinda wanted to see him at RB||
Seemed like he was a good switch up RB as he is very different then the others in the group. Also seemed like he'd be an excellent RB for the scout team. Lots of small quick/ fast RBs in the league. Glad he is happy with the switch.
I really hope one of the RBs breaks out. It'd be great for opposing defenses to have to pick their poison on whether to cover the RB running, Devin running, or Devin Passing.
|1 week 6 days ago||Not Hyperbole||
Thought the "Mike Hart" comparison might just be hyperbole, but wow did some of his runs look like Hart when he was in traffic. He gets down low and puts his hands on the ball till he's free. I'd be very pleased if he can run like Hart did in college. Top speed isn't important if you can't get to the position to need it. Looks like agreat pickup especially if we run the zone blocking.
|1 week 6 days ago||"managed to keep it quiet"||
Of course he did. It's not like it's easy to talk with a broken jaw.
|1 week 6 days ago||Be that guy||
Peppers has suited up once in pads at Michigan? I think he's doing pretty well already if he is considered the starting NB by the first game.
|1 week 6 days ago||You could be at this||
|1 week 6 days ago||Peppers will play offense this year||
Peppers will spend plenty of time on offense from all his interceptions and fumble recoveries from huge hits.
|1 week 6 days ago||I think you are right||
Just look at the fact that they made him switch Numbers so some other player can get the coveted #18. I mean I appriciate him leading the Big in interceptions and all, but really this guy just can't hang.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||I don't recall||
a game being played that day.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||Crazy||
That was my first game as well. I was a senior in high school and had been accepted to Michigan. I visited my brother who got me a ticket for the game. I don't remember much from the game except we were very high (row 70-80) in the endzone and there was a lot of room up there.
Even though both parents went to Michigan and my dad watched the Michigan games, my fandom didn't start until my freshman year in 98'. I had great seats (row 4 in section 31) and had a blast down there, and fandom kept growing from there.
Funny, I thought you were older.
|2 weeks 13 hours ago||oops||
|2 weeks 1 day ago||3 Wide set||
I'd hope we run a decent amount of 3 wide sets, especially with Butt out. Based on what I've heard about players abilities, I'd have Funchess on outside (for obvious reasons) and Canteen on the outside as well, based on his speed and route running, and put Darboh in the slot based on his size and supposedly great hands.
It'll be interesting to see if Canteen is more like a Manningham or a Breaston type. If he plays like either I'd be very happy. If Darboh could channel some Avant, and Funchess continues do do even more Funchess stuff, this could be one of the most entertaining passing attacks in a while.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Perhaps||
but I'm not ruling out a Mt Rushmore reference until he clarifies.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I wish Heiko||
would have committed to the blog, rather than just to an offensive coordinator. As soon as we lost Borges I knew we'd lose Heiko.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Gracefull like a swan||
I really am sad I didn't get to see him play more at Michigan. He had that chaotic play that was just fun. Like a big puppy truly enjoying the game except with skill on top of that. Hope he does well. I will probably have to watch the NBA now with all the Michigan players I still want to follow.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Did you use research to find this?||
It looks like he will avoid the pitfalls many athletes run into when they invest in businesse like restaurants and such because;
"In the business world you can either have a good chance at a business you want to start or a bad business that that won't sell or bring in money."
|2 weeks 6 days ago||People didn't ride dinosaurs 5,000 years ago||
People drove cars built out of stone and wood and had to be started and stopped with thier feet.
Instead people used dinosaurs like kitchen appliances and to excavate rocks before we had machines to do that stuff.
I think that is where the confusion comes from.
