This is the most impressive dispaly of #TrueFan-dom I've ever seen. You care so much about the team that you've actually transcended watching them and rooting for them to a higher plane of fandom where you make bizarre self-serious political statements (that you admit have exactly zero impact) and then brag about it on the internet. Bravo.

Went to Buffalo Billiards for the Syracuse game last year and it was overwhelmingly Michigan. Don't know how it would be for a regular game though.

Is it just me or is Walton a pretty good rebounder for a little guy?

I remember thinking the same thing last year. Beilein teams age well over the season. We'll be fine (depending on injuries of course).

I was trying to find something to take my mind off the loss today, so I cracked open "The Pale King," which I've been meaning to get around to for a long time. I was shocked and dismayed to find that the epigraph was from a poem entitled "Borges and I" (seriously). Obviously is was referring to Jorge Luis and not Gorgeous Al, but the coincidence was still striking and unsettling. Anywho, I found the actual quote to be pretty great (and vaguely relevant) so I thought I'd share:
"We fill pre-existing forms and when we fill them we change and are changed."

Do you guys think that if he yells at a press conference while wearing a headset we'll beat OSU next week? Seems like it's worth a shot.

Then go ahead and exercise your right to not read it. Maybe go check out the cute dog thread. Meanwhile, you can stop shitting up a perfectly good thread with actual content that people are discussing.

It also has loads more talent that we've been watching regress for years now. What could you reasonably expect from that 2008 squad?

that they don't want him alienating (over?) half their viewers with his politics. I'd imagine he's on a pretty short leash here. Then again it is ESPN, so who knows?
|1 year 19 weeks ago||I understand that||
I know the title is bad and should be changed. My point is that it's a minor inconvenience that people make way too big of a deal about. Point the offending OP to the FAQ, politely let them know their title is uninformative, and move on to discussing the content of the post. Being an asshole to somebody just discourages users from posting and makes the community seem petty and dickish. Just my opinion though.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Yeah, we know||
The point is that whenever somebody posts a bad title, people spend the entire comments section bitching about it rather than discussing the content. It's one bad title on the board, it takes one comment to let OP know they should probably change it.
Either way, it's literally 30 seconds out of your day to click the thread and see what the deal is. I know everyone who reads this blog is super important though so I understand if people can't be bothered to read a one-sentence thread (never mind that they find the time to write a snarky reply, making the comments unreadable). I could see people complaining if the entire board was full of bad titles, but people blow this way out of proportion.
I don't see how it's being "courteous" (that is what this is about, right?) to derail some poor guy's (or gal's) thread just because they made an honest mistake.

No Novak leadership. No grit.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Yep||
Soft physically (see: the last minute of that half), soft mentally (see: all of our road losses). They just get outworked and outhustled.

They're obviously in a free fall. This game would be absolutely huge for them, especially considering the stretch they have ahead of them.

|1 year 35 weeks ago||Let me get this straight||
It's not okay to post a vague title and have people risk wasting a precious 30 seconds clicking on the thread and deciding whether or not it's relevant to their interests. But it is okay to shit up a perfectly good discussion about a recuit bitching about the title? It's not like OP was purposefully vague to get clicks. It's a pretty innocent mistake. Meanwhile, the thread is unreadable.

Just moved to the city (recent grad) so I've been jonesing for some M bball. Can't wait to see this crew in action.

But the top was empty and it was the end of an overtime game.
