He says he wants to study engineering and Alabama has offered -- how can Michigan compete against that?

I posted 88 pictures when I put my house up for sale -- had to show the Velvet Elvis from multiple angles and highlight the genuine cinder blocks holding up the home.

Looks like only one of the bathrooms has a bidet. What are we, animals?

These folks or the FSU troll?

I'm guessing probably 10 percent of the voters, max, meet your IQ threshold, so I don't see what the problem is.
OK, the actual problem is that I still live here, surrounded by idiots. Maybe that's why I feel so comfortable spending time on MGoBlog . . . .

News flash - more than one message can be sent, and more than one perpetrator can be held responsible. It isn't an either/or decision.

|3 weeks 5 days ago||Misremembering or a different year?||
I seem to remember the Lions using "Another One Bites the Dust" one year after they won the first few games of the season? You just knew, the Lions being the Lions, that a collapse was inevitable, and sure enough -- another Lions season bit the dust.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Speaking of 45s . . .||
American Pie was too long to fit on one side of the 45 -- you had to turn it over to listen to the rest of the song. Side two started with the "helter skelter" verse, IIRC . . . .
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Joining you in the old-timers aisle of the record store . . .||
I also had a box full of 45s before I stepped up to albums. And I think my first 45 purchase also was the Beatles -- but later vintage, I'm thinking "The Long and Winding Road"? I can't remember which album I bought first -- King Crimson, Yes, and ELP undoubtedly were early additions to my collection, but the first was probably something pop-ier, maybe Elton John?

I pretty much rage-quit the mainstream media after that game, and the words of wisdom offered on MGoBlog (eventually) helped to restore my sanity. Little did I know of the head-asploding moments to come in Michigan football, but MGoBlog has gotten me through all of it (mostly) intact.

Now I feel bad.

Well, maybe not at the same time -- and my nose is chronically congested, so . . .

Nobody here really knows him -- so I'll continue making unfounded assumptions about him based on the position he plays and his decision date.

I thought the point being debated was, in your words, that there are "two different scales" being applied to hockey and basketball. My point was that the different standards are justified by actual past experience. And I'm not advocating telling Red to "piss off" just because Mel Pearson exists -- but (as evidenced by the football program) it's a lot easier to say what's wrong with the current guy than to identify someone who would do better. Again, not a double standard, but instead a different set of circumstances under which the two programs are operating -- which, again, I thought was the whole point of the discussion. Saying that Beilein is being "coddled" just begs the question -- i.e., what are the standards by which a Michigan hockey or basketball coach should be judged?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Here's another comparison for you . . .||
How about Berenson vs. Berenson? We don't need to speculate about the ceiling for a Michigan hockey program because we've seen it -- consistently winning the conference and making a decent tournament run every year. If you don't think the program has fallen far off that standard -- e.g., missing the tourney three straight years, failing to win even a crappy conference -- I don't know what to tell you. And the recruiting is a double-edged sword -- yes, there's no question Red brought in a ton of talent on this year's team, but he's gotten more from less in years past. Not to mention Brian's other point -- if Berenson or Beilein goes, you'd better have someone in mind who can do as well or better. For hockey, at least, we have a pretty good idea who that would be.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Can we just take a moment here . . .||
and explain to WD what happened at the Alamo Bowl? That was a long time ago -- several years, in fact, before Springsteen performed this minor gig known as halftime of the Super Bowl.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Apparently it's a math problem||
If you study these charts and graphs, I'm sure it'll all become clear . . . .
|5 weeks 3 days ago||"Most people are idiots."||
I can't understand where Michigan grads get their reputation as elitist. Not saying I disagree with you -- but then again, I'm a fellow Michigan grad, so . . . .
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Minor quibble . . .||
Not sure I would characterize the other consequences of HB2 as "unintended."
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Simple solution . . .||
DNA test to get through the door. The notion of an effective enforcement mechanism for those laws is hilarious -- or perhaps "terrifying" would be a better word . . . .

By D'Antoni's logic, if abuse brings control, I guess ignorance brings enlightenment?

he can help restore Winnipeg to its former glory! (Surely Winnipeg did have some glory at some point, right?)
