When bringing into question the veracity of an adversary's argument, it is advisable to present some facts of your own. I believe that "stupid," "some form of beavis and butthead," "nut-jobs," and "generally not your friend" are all highly subjective views.
The basis of your argument should focus on the "screwing up" of hormones, the birth defects, and the speech patterns. Please present your evidence that research on these issues led to use of the slang term "dope" in reference to marijuana.

Basketball, absolutely. There are a lot of good prospects coming out of Ontario these days, and the occasional game in Toronto might help us in recruiting the next Stauskas, or even the next Wiggins.
M vs. Syracuse at the Air Canada Centre? I'd go to that, especially if I was a 19 or 20 year old student.

It's not Dan and Jim, but it's the game.

You have a perennial MVP candidate and likely Hall of Famer, the greatest second baseman of a generation, who has posted a higher WAR than Miguel Cabrera each of the past two seasons. If that's not enough, he's remarkably consistent, in great shape, and hasn't missed more than three games in a season since 2006.

The Horror wins the "Shock" and "Ensuing Ridicule" categories, but some of these probably made me feel worse, and would fit in the same category:
M v. Toledo 2008
Rodriguez at Ohio State, Either Time
Rodriguez Tries to Get Fired by Singing That One Song at the Banquet
Greg Mathews Kicks Oregon Guy in the Penith at End of 39-7 Beating, the Week After the Horror

Is there any proof that arm belongs to Trey? That could be a lot of people.
As far as I'm concerned, this is Ohio trolling us, until we see that arm alongside Trey's face. Preferably connected via Trey's shoulder and neck.

I sort of hope they give the already-issued ones to freshmen now that the initial ceremonies are over, so guys can stay with a number. The Hemingway/Roundtree/Gardner musical chairs were bad enough last year; I'm not sure my brain can process Gallon in 21.
98 is different and should go to an established, high-profile guy at the ceremony.

Have you looked at Billups's career numbers? A smaller Billups is absolutely worth the eighth pick in the draft.
I don't think the league expects Trey to be the next Chris Paul or even Kyrie Irving, but they see him as a safe pick who might settle into the Ty Lawson-Jameer Nelson tier of small, solid point guards. He's often compared to Kemba Walker, too--Kemba has put up pretty good numbers this year, and would be a bigger deal on a decent team.

This is the correct answer. Go for it, if you can be cool. If you are a creeper, seek other alternatives.

You've never seen a hipster over 30? Try the Kerrytown farmers' market, or the A2 art fair. Or, like, Ferndale.
Seriously, though, we throw around words like "snob" and "hipster," but most will agree that it's fun to develop and demonstrate an expertise in something. Especially something that is delicious and gets you tipsy.

They're guessing that women probably make more charitable contributions then men. It's a generalization, but the idea is that women are more emotional and more impulsive, and therefore more likely to contribute to this kind of campaign. That's sexist, sure, but I think it's what they're counting on.
Regardless, it's just marketing. Any advancements in heart disease prevention and treatment will benefit men and women as far as I know. I'm not a doctor, though.

Dat sleeve stripe. Too bad jerseys don't have sleeves anymore.

Oh, North Pole Hoops. That's disappointing. I'm going to continue picturing Stauskas interviewed by Neil Patrick Harris. As Barney Stinson, of course.

OK, so on this team we have a 6'7" guy whose famous father was called "Big Dog," and a different guy who is called "Big Puppy." Is that correct? Confusing things are confusing.

|1 year 42 weeks ago||Seems about right to me. Dude||
Seems about right to me. Dude made sexual contact with an incapacitated, defenseless person, and many thousands of people have viewed it. He's a sex offender, and if his victim was a cute girl instead of your "crybaby," I think a lot of people would want to lock him up for longer. The victim was defenseless, regardless of gender or size.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||I think the current||
I think the current undergrads didn't get hooked on football in the same way that many of us were. Freshmen arrived to see 5-7 Rich Rodriguez teams and never got hooked. Die-hards couldn't take the disappointment week after week and had to care a little less. Kids started doing other things on Saturdays; it was more fun.
Also, being a sports fan isn't as cool anymore. When I was 18 we all played NCAA and Madden and Fifa incessantly. Now I'm nerdy because I still play those and not Modern Warfare or Skyrim or whatever the kids are doing these days. They generally don't wear jerseys around and watch Sportscenter highlights. It's just a different and less sports-centered generation, maybe.

"Would make a guess to say that there will never be another All-American, then Senator, then President on a future Michigan team."
Probably true, but only because Zoltan Mesko is not a native-born US citizen.

I'm a fan of tailgating on students' lawns north of the athletic complex, between Hoover and Hill somewhere. Atmosphere is buzzing, they don't charge as much as the golf course, and you can hear the band practice if you start early enough.

Bama 41 M 10.
24-0 at the half. Bama scores on their first 2nd half possession and then rests their starters.
Denard throws 3 picks, fumbles once and leaves with an injury. He is a game-time decision for Air Force.
Dave Brandon immediately rounds out the 2014 schedule with Miami (NTM) and Vanderbilt.
Michigan wins its next five games by an average of 13 points.

"Pittsburg" was spelled without the H from 1890-1911. The time periods check out.
In 1890, the United States Board on Geographic Names decided that the final h was to be dropped in the names of all cities and towns ending in burgh. (Throughout the period 1890-1911 city ordinances and council minutes retained the h.) In 1911, after protest from citizens who wished to preserve the historic spelling, the United States Board on Geographic Names reversed its decision and restored the h to Pittsburgh.
