Bayless isn't ignorant, he's just a troll. I wish I could embed (or knew how to embed) on my phone the clip where Bayless compares Sherman unfavorably to Revis. Sherman puts Bayless in his place, and ever since then I've liked Sherman. Bayless is a hack with no credibility, who does no research and writes and says things simply to get people riled up. Sherman was drafted in the 5th round, an overlooked player converted from WR, who turned himself (with great coaching) into the best in the game. I love players with things to prove and chips on their shoulders. To see millionaires still have raw uncontrollable passion is what makes this game worth watching, and I support the hell out of Sherman for showing emotion after the biggest game of their season to this point.

I generally stick to lurking and reading the articles and posts on here, since they are generally great. But I honestly can't stomach this whole "Woe is the year of 2013", "Year of Infiinite Pain 3.0" or whatever about 2013. Yes, the football season was frustrating and disappointing, and a failure. Yes, it sucks that Mitch McGary is out, and that George Campbell decommitted, and that our offense is a twitching corpse half of the time. There were some real disappointments. But everyone seems to be ignoring the good things that happened this year, as well as how much better off these athletic programs are now than 5 years or so ago.
-Trey Burke drops Kansas in the tourney
-A DAMN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP APPEARANCE in which we played a great game and lost to another very talented and well-coached team
-We came within a 2 point conversion of toppling a much superior OSU team.
I've had a lot of good memories from this year, even if the endings didn't always work out. There's obviously a lot of negativity around here at the moment, which is somewhat justified, but I think we're beating it to death. I really hope we can move on to 2014 with some optimism, especially after a good road win over Minnesota.

I was an employee from roughly 2009 - 2011. Not sure if that fits your bill but yes they have shakes. I would actually go to Washtenaw Dairy to get ice cream when we ran out sometimes. Their shakes are the real deal.

Edit: Supposed to be one post lower... damn these Victory Golden Monkeys

/s aside, their shakes are all delicious. Also, a toast to you, who joined the same day as me but has roughly 100 times the points I do. I evidently need to step my game up on this site. I visit it every day as is.
|1 year 2 days ago||Love it||
Sounds like he really enjoyed himself. I like our chances. However, as a former Spot's employee, I wish he had gone two doors down and got himself a steak hoagie, onion rings, and a thick ol' chocolate shake.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||Ratings||
The ratings have in fact gone up, according to an article I read on ESPN a few days ago. Average attendance is up too, I think the number they gave was 97.9% average capacity across the league for each game. I would link to the article but I'm in the car about to hit the links.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Advantage||
I like the idea of advantage, but just like soccer it should be waved off after a certain amount of time--say, 3-5 seconds. That gives enough time to attempt a fast break opportunity, and if the foul causes the team in possession to regroup or lose possession, call the foul. Otherwise play on.

There always has to be one of you when anyone posts about soccer.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Wings||
I watched the Wings win the cup in 2008 at JLA (they won it in Pittsburgh). It was a great environment, and I'm sure Crisler will be even better.

Check out how GR3 attacks the hoop on each one of Stauska's shots. We remember it when the ball bounces right and he's there for the epic jam, but this is a good illustration of how that's a result of him consistently getting to the rim on deep shots. I'm sure that's a result of Beilein's coaching.

there's a chance.

IIRC, TomVH's original "buckle up" tweet was regarding Kyle Kalis' flip. It just happened to be 2-3 weeks early (Kyle wasn't quite ready to go public with the announcement). That is my recollection, anyway.

Here in Houston for the summer, trying to stay cool. Only have one more month left but I'd kill to be back in beautiful summertime Michigan. Maybe this gin & tonic can help ease the heat.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||One word--parity||
You are missing a key aspect of the regular season. These days there is no such thing as a sure playoff bid. Great teams will still make the playoffs, but average-to-good teams have no guarantee they will make it. In the NHL today, the parity level assures that no one is safe, and even if a spot is all but secured late in the season, teams still play hard to try and earn home-ice advantage, whether or not it ultimately affects the outcome of the postseason.

Did you really google the OP's username in an attempt to discredit them? And, if what you say is true, did you basically out this person to the entire MGoCommunity? It seems the OP is far more mature than you are.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Worth it?||
I'm about to be a senior this year, and I considered not buying the tickets. Call me unloyal or whatever you will, but we aught to have no trouble rolling through our home slate, and if there are any truly epic moments at Michigan stadium this year (save MSU) it will be a disappointment. Save yourself the cash and put it towards an MSU ticket, because that's the only game worth paying top dollar for.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Getting ready to move to Houston||
Last weekend in MI before I head to Texas for 12 weeks for an internship. Going to miss the beautiful Michigan summer, so I'm enjoying this weather while I can before I get to 100 degrees and humid.

If they offered him a scholarship it would be to play football. In a perfect world, severe injuries would still allow a player to go to a school who had extended him an offer. However, since said offer (and commitment) isn't binding until signing day, and since scholarships are precious to a coaching staff, commits who suffer serious injuries may get their scholarship revoked. Sad, but thus is the recruiting game.

Is pos-bang worthy.

I was looking for a good online station as well. Nice work.

I would say that my class deserves to have the good times roll, even though at this point we're still spoiled compared to a typical university, or even a typical B10 school like Purdue or Iowa.
|2 years 35 weeks ago||400+ comments?||
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Not OT?||
Seeing as this pertains to the university, I don't think this qualifies as OT.

someone had one too many Bloody Mary's this morning.

picking at it!
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Red Wings > Michigan?||
I can't see the stadium filling to capacity for a Red Wings game, as much as I love them. Without the power of the Michigan fan base, I just don't see 115,000 fans showing up for an outdoor hockey game. Or am I being naive?
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Chi-City||
Chicago would be a solid choice I think, especially since there's a large student and alumni population from Chicago.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Grave walk this year?||
Obviously still early, but has there been any information on the grave walk this year? Since the Game is on Thanksgiving weekend, it might be tough to have it the night before. I remember this was the case last year but can't remember what the outcome was.
