Maybe I am being naive, but I think most disagreements have to do with people disagreeing with their vision of what Michigan is supposed to be and what DB's vision is. More of a traditionalists vs progressives (i.e. band vs piped in music).
I thought Dave Brandon was a great hire. He came into a divided house and I felt he did a good job of reuniting the fan base. I still like his hire of Hoke (even though I was against it when I initially heard about it) and think he handled the press very well at the time.
I do disagree with some of the direction he is taking this department. I am not against modernizing, (love the new stadium upgrades and the Crisler updates), but still enjoy the old tradition. I would prefer that the band be more prominent, and death to uniformz, I don't see any of these things as political points.

I think the posts are manageble enough, and it's easy to see the high point posts. A lot of times, the high votes are going to be on one of the few first posts anyway. I really like this voting vs the newer voting that we had. I hope Brian keeps this.

Makes me feel like I really mean it.

however, sports and fans are a little different. If Delta is not giving you good deals, and your loyalty program isn't great, no big deal to go over to United. In sports, the idea is that you want fans who love the team no matter what. You want the fans to support the team through lean or rebuilding years and not jump to a more reasonably priced better "product", like jumping to become a State fan this year.
It also complicates things when you throw in the non-profit college aspect of the sport. I think there is something to be said about fans who have been loyal to the program, over those like that the team is good now and have more money.

I am still trying to figure out the nuances, but he is very tall and has decent speed, so it'd seem like he'd play well in a 3 tech or SDE like VanBergen. Maybe I'm way off, but at that weight and height, it'd seem like a penetrator/contain guy, not someone who can hold up to any doubles or two gap guys. I don't know how it all works though.

That goes doubly for anything beyond that (+1,000,000).
Also hate "You won the internet"

I also did not understand the love for the movie. My tak on it was "wow, I am really glad I am not a woman, that is depressing". My wife had the same take on it.

I'd like to know which words are grating. I can't hear it and have lived out East with people from upstate NY and Pennsylvania who all sounded the same. I'm really bad with accents.

was better than Top Gun

not cool? I like a lot of his songs.
|1 day 11 hours ago||On this note||
I greatly enjoyed the movies over the books.
|1 day 11 hours ago||I enjoy Nickleback||
I have downloaded a number of their songs.
I don't understand the ancherman obsession
I don't really like fudge

I wish they were handed out earlier though.

watched the loss in Crisler.

I'm a spartan student and spelled Barn wrong.

They both were backups with limited touches. Jon was making an observation that is not hipster in any way. I like the way Smith runs. He keeps his legs moving and has shown good balance. Green has appeared to go down easier then you'd expect when his legs have gotten hit, and didn't show a lot of leg churning YAC. I do agree that Hart/Grady is not an apt comparison. Both running backs have shown good ball security (something Grady struggled with.
I think saying this discussion and opinon sucks and is hipster is niether beneficial, nor informed.

but I believe the payout doesn't matter because all the BIG teams split the bowl revenue evenly.
Also, don't like the more likely to win argument. Bowl games are way more exciting against good teams than bad teams, and a win against a good team would mean a lot more. I'd like to see what this team does with 15 practices and a chance to get Gardner healthy. KSU is ok, but It would have been great to get matched up against a better team.

Isn't this (tic tac to against itslef) the way they shut down the computer? I imagine this is the "nuclear option" and would destroy the site.
|6 days 9 hours ago||I like my Avatar||
(thanks Shredder) I don't think its bad to have one, as I think it ads to someones personality and makes them more reconizable, but then, your profile is now more reconizable, so I guess tread lighter.
I am really glad M-Wolverine is gone. Thanks for this. A slow clap is appropriate.

It was hard to watch that get taken down. It went so quickly from everyone (cops) being very cool about it in my freshman and sophomore years, to completely shut down by my 5th year. Spring game means the end is near as well. I always thought it was weird when students would leave the day of their last exam. I always liked being at college for a few days with no responsibility after my last exam, but campus was pretty empty by then.

If he wasn't beat out, does that mean he will most likely stay inside, or is he still expected to slide out. Glad that whatever it was got sorted out.
|1 week 14 hours ago||Dileo Runs||
Dileo also ran for some first downs. I think his sixe was an advantage here, because he could easily get lost in the scuffle and was nimble enough to get through or around the defense. I'd take another Dileo-Gibbons type holder/kicker duo anytime.

Some "magical" life that doesn't determine my happiness/ self worth on a sport/ activity I have no control over.
Although, I have heard of this place called "Outdoors". Not sure if anyone has been there, but I've heard it's gotten ok reviews. Biggest complaints are that it's full of people that you have to talk face to face with. Yeash, could you imagine?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Where did he make a personal attack here?||
Nothing in his response to you was personal nor some idiotic name calling.
We get it, you don't like the blog and don't like Brian for banning a poster. The fact that you come here only to complain about the blog and how horrible and draconian it is, while not being banned, seems to go against your argument.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Why don't you ask Brian||
if he'd say the same to Brandon and Hoke (the people he is calling out)? I am sure he would absolutely do so if given the opportunity.
