|1 day 11 hours ago||People who tweet the N-word at athletes||
make me feel embarrassed to be a human being.

|5 days 9 hours ago||I'm not in the "Fire Brandon" camp, but I can't see him staying.||
The president and regents are too evasive about him. And if the ESPN reports are true that replacements have been contacted then the decision has already been made.
However the OPs post is good since all the people buying into the feeding frenzy should wrap their arms around the fact that his firing is not a done deal. The president alone decides and there needs to be a real reason to spend the 3 million to boot the AD. The ESPN reports may be bullshit and there is no way to know what the president is thinking.
Hoke must go however. Unless the remainder of the season is a miraculous Cinderella story (not likely) then , as much as it hurts to say it; he must be fired. No matter what, times are going to change. I don't think we've seen the bottom either. The Penn State game did nothing to change my view that the football team is not very good.
|6 days 10 hours ago||But what if you don't drink?||
The only thing keeping me from being scared shitless about the MSU game is my utter dejection for the entire season.
|1 week 9 hours ago||Correct.||
And any new AD will surely consider that it's his mandate to clean house of all problems, which would first include the football program.
So we start from scratch again.
|1 week 2 days ago||I love Norfleet, but||
prior to this weekend I had no concept of what "Atomic Dog" meant.
I would have paid real money to have retained my blissful ignorance.
|1 week 6 days ago||maybe we’ve been boycotting for like three years by showing up||
Apathetic people showing their displeasure by upping the apathy level.
|3 weeks 8 hours ago||I am so despondent that I would consider any of||
those guys good news. But I would go one step further. Send Hoke packing after the next ridiculous loss. Then put Nuss in charge. There's more hope with that than there is with the status quo.
If he's a Luke Fickell then you do the same coach search you would have done if you kept Hoke. If he's a Steve Fisher then you have your man.
|3 weeks 12 hours ago||Agree with this post.||
I protested in that very same spot when Nixon fired Elliot Richardson. The next few years they protested apartheid there.
There's only a thousand of them. That's probably the same thousand that show up on time.
The guy on the front page of MGBlog is wearing OSU garb.
Right or wrong, the AD's actions that affected this group was a reaction to their own apathy.

When I was there in the mid-70s I had a mild association with the student government. I can say with great confidence that the opinions of the students meant very little to the adminstration on both the LS&A and University level.
Looking back on it, that was probably a good thing.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Bluntly||
anyone arguing that we shouldn't jump down Hoke's throat because of the slight possibility Morris was not concussed is an idiot.
So, let me get this straight. This author is, in advance, voicing a personal attack on anyone disagreeing with him.
I thought personal attacks were against the board rules. I mean, I have always followed what I thought were the rules.
There have been times I have read stuff written by this author that, to me, was so unimaginably ludicrous that I could not believe a sober person could have written it. There are times I read his stuff, I read it again, and then I give up since I cannot, for the life of me, understand what he is saying.
Do I point any of this out in the comments? No. This is his board and I'm just a guest here. Besides, doing so - bluntly - would amount to a personal attack. And I don't do that - rules or no rules.
I do not believe for one second that the coach endangered any of his players. People saying so are just ranting because they hate the losing (which I also hate). So, I am an idiot. I come to this board, I read some brilliant stuff by Bisb, I read a bunch of so-so stuff by all the rest. Sometimes I skim the comments to learn a little about football from the Space Coyote. I am an idiot.
So be it.

I'm not doing this anymore.

Ball security is not the problem. These are highly skilled players that are not performing. I don't claim I know enough about football to pinpoint anything with regards to actually playing the game. However, I know people, and whatever is going on here is an issue that is very basic to the mindset of the team. I really like this coach as a person. He talks a lot about expectations. Right now my expectation is to lose to any team that is not a doormat.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Good news||
I didn't know we weren't talking about that guy any more. Thank god for that. We talked about that guy for way too long.

Supporting the troops.
That shirt would make fine gun patches.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Your argument||
that "support the troops" is not an argument was a poor argument. I would argue that supporting the troops is a better course of action in a screwed up situation than arguing what does or does not constitute an argument (which does not support the troops anyway). It is not even an argument to say that not supporting the troops is self-destructive. Forget the arguments. Don't be self-destructive. If you want to argue that the coach should be fired go ahead and argue it. Maybe you're right. I wouldn't argue against that.
But support the troops.
And fergodsake don't boo. Shit. Booing your own team should only happen in Columbus.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Nice.||
I thought it especially interesting that Howard Cosell smoked in the broadcast booth. Even so, I still have no sympathy for that dummy Gifford.
I'm commenting too much. Someday my points will go over a hundred and I'm not going to know how to cope with that anxiety.

This was more fun this time last week.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Uplifting post.||
And man, I NEEDED an uplifting post after Saturday night.
|7 weeks 3 hours ago||31 to 14 Michigan||
I really hate those guys.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Nice write-up, as usual.||
Unfortunately, I laughed at the "brain problem" sentence and that's bad because I believe karma is real.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Cumong||
I knew a guy named Cumong once. Even though he insisted they tasted better than potato chips, I still refused to eat his fried cicadas.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Perhaps Canhamland IS that difficult to achieve.||
I wouldn't have thought so.
You pick good coaches. You show the world that Michigan defines classiness. That must be very difficult because no one has done it since Don Canham.
If you're going to have a big ego, fine. Just keep it under wraps. All the narcissism just doesn't do it for me.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||The first off topic thread I have ever read.||
Some good suggestions here. I just bought my first Android gadget a couple of months ago.

That gentleman was a real credit to MGoBlog. I always looked forward to anything he wrote.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||All of the 400 level economics courses.||
To this day I remember and use many of the principles. The worst: accounting courses in the business school. Pay accountants.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Prostate cancer...||
... is a very slow killer. if you are 80 years old and were diagnosed only two years earlier you will likely die from some other cause. Prostate cancer is much more of a problem when you are diagnosed at 60.
|27 weeks 7 hours ago||I enjoyed this article.||
And I'm not even much of a basketball fan. Articles like these embiggen my positive opinoin of Ace.
