I believe he is referencing the CARA forms that were part of the Rich Rod sanctions and how their mishandling actually pre-dated Rich.

How about Mississippi being the mother of STD hotspots?

Maybe. He's no longer CEO of Dominos but he is chairman of the board of directors. I'm sure still holds a fair amount of stock. Has one of the highest salaries listed in the public U of M salary record. There is also a thing around U of M called "defered compensation" which does not show up on the public reports. Basically a way to hide bonuses.

I love how Danielson is slurping up the read option attack now. What a derpfaced slappy.
Watching Auburn's rushing attack makes me sad that we're going to Manball. :(
|1 week 6 days ago||Thank you||
Thank you! "Could care less" is one of my biggest pet peeves.
|1 week 6 days ago||The old voting system||
The old voting system can't get here soon enough.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah||
Yeah I understand the counterpoint of staying the course. There have been flashes of pretty fun looking things.
It just feels like being in a relationship with somebody who makes you feel like crap 6 days out of the week, but then goes out of their way to make you feel like the most appreciated/loved person ever on day 7.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I must see||
I must see Al working somewhere else.
I can't handle the variance. I think I actually enjoyed watching one game the whole season, ND. We're 3 plays away from being 4-8 while simultaneously being 4 plays away from being 11-1.
Narduzzi drinking Al's milkshake with the world's largest twisty straw for three straight years drives me nuts.
OSU in the national title game 2 years removed from scandal, and still on probation drives me nuts.
Penn State being better than us with a skeleton team drives me nuts.
Seeing Malzahn completely turn around Auburn twice in 5 years just shows the kind of impact that a smart offensive coach can have. A school like Michigan should have the will and resources to go get a similarly smart coach.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||All we need||
All we need is 6 offensive tackles on the field at the same time to run on that.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Family reasons||
Doesn't he have some family reasons for not really wanting to pick up and move to a higher profile job?
Things are going to get harder at Boise for him. You can only get by recruiting the isle of misfit toys for so long until the big boys start cherry picking your commits to fill their classes.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I get the B1G thing||
I get the rooting for the B1G thing, but my head will explode if OSU goes from getting a slap on the wrist for all the cheating they did under Tressel, moonwalk into signing Urban, and win a NC in year two.
All while we've had two clusterfuckery searches and can't seem to ever get all three phases working at the same time.
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||Ugh||
Ugh, flashbacks. I still don't know why they stuck with Henne so long in that game. 11/34, yikes. Felt bad for him. Senior, last game, can't feel arm.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Prediction||
Hoke has a milkshake.
Urban has a straw that reaches allllllllll the way across the field.
Urban drinks Hoke's milkshake.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Oh yeah, well||
Oh yeah, well, I bet winning all the time really makes you a big douchebag.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Can we||
Can we get Creed to wear rocket packs and deliver the pizzas directly to the blue hairs in their seats as they sing that one song that sounds like all of their other songs?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Uh Oh||
|3 weeks 5 days ago||That'll be||
That'll be 19 by game time. Gamblers will be hitting OSU hard at -13.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Anything short of 20||
I'd wager that the sharps would be betting big on OSU with anything short of -20.

It stands to be the derpiest of all of our derpfests.

Today I learned what abattoir means.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||It's not public money||
It's not public money. Just because Michigan is a public school does not mean that Hoke & Co. are paid by tax payer dollars. The Athletic Department has it's own budget that it builds via ticket sales and donations.
0% of my paycheck is going into the coaches' pockets.
|5 weeks 12 hours ago||Trust the coaches||
Weren't we hearing that he only recently started doing things in practice other than shooting drills? The eternal pessimist in me worries that it's too soon.
I trust the coaches, but fergodsake, if not having Mitch in November/December means definitely having him in February/March, I'm all for resting the over grown puppy.
|5 weeks 20 hours ago||Precisely the problem||
This is precisely the problem. As much as Mike Valenti likes to say that Michigan is no different on the academic front than MSU, they are.
It's harder to get a JUCO graduated from Michigan, which then affects APR. MSU literally has classes in bowling and golf.
Also most JUCO's went that route because they didn't originally qualify for D1. If you look back, the only times Michigan has taken a JUCO is when he had originally qualified straight out of high school, possibly spent a year or two at a D1 university, but went JUCO for a year so they wouldn't have to sit out. These types of JUCO players are not very common.
The Russell Wilson type of players (grad transfer) are also hard to find for Michigan. It's a great institution, but often behind the pack when it comes to introducing new graduate programs. It is very hard for a player to find a graduate program to go into at Michigan that their current institution doesn't have.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah I think that's the best bet.||
Every snap should be from either 5 wide or 4 wide, and I mean WIDE, not "oh look that slot receiver is standing where a tight end usually is."
At this point, a 2 yard pass to the slot is just as good as one of our futile runs.
Defenses have the formula now, courtesy of Narduzi. 8 in the box and blitz like hell. There's only one counter to that if you have no OLine. It's like the rebels finding the Death Star ventilator shaft. "They came... from... the A-Gap..."
If we can spread them out and get defenses out of kill mode, then we can work some RB and QB draws into the mix, even some Veer or something. Borges' read option plays are the ones you run in high school, he has none of the advanced counters that you would see RR bring out. We have nothing to counter a simple scrape from the defense, and it shows.
We need something extreme to get it so when we do run it's against 6 or 7 guys, not 8 or 9.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Road games||
Until we prove that we're not horrible on the road under this regime, there is no way we compete for a B1G championship with a schedule like 2014's.
2015 is a realistic expectation. Hoke's first full recruiting class will be true seniors by then, and we get MSU and OSU at home.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I agree||
I agree with one of your beliefs, and one of his. Therefore you are both shitheads.

The bases are loaded. All we need now is a Hall of Fame worthy photoshop thread to bring the runners home.

You may want to read the Verboten topics thread.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Homecoming||
I like the idea of making the Homecoming game the one game a year where all of the legends jersey's are brought out.
We still pay homage to players of the past, while allowing the current players a chance to make a legacy of their own.
