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.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Nobody's gonna say North||
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.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Amazing||
Posts like this are why the internet exists.
|4 days 11 hours 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.

That game is why I think PSU was a better #3 rival than MSU. I hope they get themselves together at some point.

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.

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.

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.
|1 week 1 day ago||Not sure about your appeal claim||
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.
|1 week 3 days 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.
|1 week 3 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.
|1 week 6 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 1 day 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.)

Yeah, I figured that was the theory. But you know I just have to complain about something.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Hmm||
Can I also hit THE COMMENTS to complain that your summary of last time shouldn't just be you whining about the stupid strategy you yourself adopted last time? Just checking! I <3 draftageddons. Do we get diagrams again? Can you make basketball diagrams yet? (If I bet you that you can't, will the dime store negative psychology work?)
|2 weeks 1 day ago||It's Waffle Crisp and you can||
It's Waffle Crisp and you can all go fuck yourselves if you disagree.
Mmm. So good.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Lol "incubate overnight"||
I'm surprised I didn't wake anyone up laughing at that.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Right||
Yes, those are some of the reasons mentioned in favor of CCTs instead of UCTs. Was there a point?

It seems like we are now agreed that the existence of white privilege, as it is conceived of by academics and activists, is compatible with an appropriately nuanced view about the kinds of lived experiences people actually have.
Our remaining disagreement is indeed over matters of opinion, and in particular whether the chosen term is basically bad marketing for people who want to effect change. I mean, my first reaction is to think that you are basically objecting that some people are offended by a term that they haven't bothered trying to understand. Perception, after all, is not actually reality, especially not when the perceivers are not especially responsible interpreters of what is out there to be perceived. But I guess it is important to use rhetoric that your average Joe can get behind when it comes to stuff like this.
The next stage in this debate, if I were a real activist, would be to say that you are trying to police the tone of people who complain about white privilege, and that they spent many decades trying to make their points politely, and that being nice and not making white people uncomfortable didn't work. (This is typically what activists say to advice about marketing.) One might also argue that what "divides blacks and whites" is racist institutions, and not the language used to describe racist institutions.
Anyway, the objection you are now making is not confused about what "white privilege" is. Good. Go Blue.
