"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Nothing interesting on Gary?
|45 min 32 sec ago||good||
I am surprised this kind of stuff doesn't happen more often, but it's good to see it get called out in a case like this.
I suppose it's also good that the wealthy Southern onlooker who couldn't hear the conversation is convinced nothing untoward happened when three people were subjected to extra scrutiny for behaving as if they were students. People should do what they can to sleep well at night. It's healthy.

Which is why our questionably literate friend wanted to contribute his own racist perspective and self-referentially observe the presence of mental midgets.

I have 3 Michigan degrees, so I've gotten complementary one-year memberships three times, and I've never used any of them for anything. (Well, I did leave one of the little block M decals they send you with your membership card on a window in a house I rented from some Buckeyes in Ohio.)
My dad, on the other hand, has always been a member, and he does a fair amount of stuff through the alumni association. I think he goes to one or two events with the local alumni association each year, and we did a couple of Rose Bowl packages in the mid-'00s. There are some benefits of doing things through the alumni association. On bowl trips, you get to go to pre-game pep rallies where the band shows up and various administrators and coaches give speeches and stuff like that. But it is not generally the cheapest way to do anything: you pay face for tickets, you pay more for their hotel and tour packages than you would pay if you booked something on your own, etc.
So I think it depends a lot on how much scratch you want to spend on Michigan stuff, and if you would be interested in having the opportunity to do some first-rate but generally more expensive stuff.

I was really disappointed in the option defense. I don't know what the scheme is supposed to be, but it sure as hell looked like we were trying to defend option plays with a single defender all day long.
I thought it was coaching malpractice live, but it would be kind of surprising if I knew what I was looking at, so I am looking forward to hearing an explanation.

Buy your 14 year old kid a cell phone. You're just being a bastard. He needs one to communicate with his friends like a normal person. Welcome to the new millenium.

Nobody's gonna say North Carolina? I know we don't play them really, but I hate them more than anyone else. After that, MSU and IU, but I grew up in Indiana.

No question about how the DL fixed the stretch problems from Indiana?

Did we know Ross was called Biggs before?

That conference is fucking awful this year.

He's talking about OSU beating MSU.
|1 week 2 days ago||Amazing||
Posts like this are why the internet exists.
|1 week 2 days ago||This thread title made me crack up||
But I realized, while trying to cheer for OSU, that I don't care who wins. We beat MSU. (Shut up with your circus-dependent facts.) If we beat OSU, too, then as far as I'm concerned we won the B1G. This has already been a great year. The Game matters again. The Game matters enough. That's true even if we have to watch MSU lose to Iowa in Indy.
|1 week 4 days ago||That game||
That game is why I think PSU was a better #3 rival than MSU. I hope they get themselves together at some point.
|1 week 6 days ago||I hope FSU beats Florida and||
I hope FSU beats Florida and then Florida beats Alabama in the SEC championship game. I want to see the SEC left out of this year's playoff.
|1 week 6 days ago||brutal and unfair||
And brutally unfair. I didn't know that was him until this moment, and I'm here every day. But don't even try putting that outcome on him.
|1 week 6 days ago||my (pretty vague) proposed change||
They need to allow retroactive enforcement to get it right every time. This probably means they can't immediately throw people out, except in extremely clear cases. I kind of like Brian's yellow card/red card idea. But I also think the bans need to have the potential to be for longer than one game, especially for repeat offenders. And coaches need to be disciplined, too, with significant fines and even game bans for head and position coaches of teams that do this on a regular basis.

How do you get anything from this vine? I'd need a better video that's zoomed in or slowed down to judge what happened there.

Don't you get access to a much more thorough appeals process if you are sentenced to death?

Any idea if you'll be able to get the earlier Beilein vs Beilein game? Hard to watch these things from Europe given that I don't want to stay up till 3 am to watch us crush less talented teams live.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Why aren't we talking about the possibility of 2 Big Ten teams?||
Michigan and OSU both into the playoff would be just fine by me. I'll grant that it's a little ridiculous, but I really don't know why anybody thinks this year's SEC deserves a spot.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||He was raving||
He didn't just look like an angry person to me. He was kind of stumbling around and failing to get his feet as he raged. No question in my mind that targeting should've been at least called and reviewed.

Mike was cooling on him anyway.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||fuck all of you||
1. Waffle Crisp did not win.
2. I am in Europe where I can't get any of this shit so I have to eat fucking muesli every time you pricks make me hungry for cereal.
(3. Just getting it in ahead of time in case we lose another game.)

Well, you see, they told all those kids they were selling results rather than hope, and the kids can probably look at the games on the field and determine whose results they are going to want to buy for the next four years.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Lewan is a bad comparison||
His missteps went rather beyond seeming like a doofus.
(Btw, I assume you actually know this, but Beilein's first name is John.)
