You want to talk about being disrespectful? How is about making a mockery of the words of our dead former-coach? Blackwell is a fucking asshole.

I couldn't give less of a shit about national attention, but winning more is pretty nice.

I don't care as long as we beat them.

Remember when people were predicting what commitments we'd get from the BBQ? We got 3 decommitments. Hooray!

Also, I just want to get the ball rolling on Chris Evans = Captain America jokes.

Repeated mentionings have me excited to see McDoom and Evans now.
Also, FUCK YES DE'VEON!
'But I'm not about to lose to a teenager (in pass pro)'
I love to hear that.
|1 week 2 days ago||What is it about this one||
What is it about this one instance that is rubbing the media so wrong. Coaches not answering questions they don't want to answer is commonplace. It happens all the damned time, but this time it's like the media is turning it into a soapbox to stand on.
If any of these media members had half a brain to look at this from a perspective outside of themselves, they'd see that the world outside of the media doesn't give a shit that he didn't give all the details. I'm sorry that they feel jilted by the mundane. Now move on.
|1 week 5 days ago||I hope the payout if we do go||
I hope the payout if we do go 12-0 is much larger than $500 because otherwise that was a pretty shitty bet. Odds are always in favor of not going undefeated.
|1 week 5 days ago||Well, if that was a season||
Well, if that was a season prediction then he was only 1 off, so that's pretty good.
|1 week 5 days ago||You can get off Nike's dick||
You can get off Nike's dick sometimes, y'know? There aren't laces on these, so I don't know why you'd say that there are. This stuff sucks. Despite years as a stand-alone hockey company and more years in a partnership with Bauer, Nike just plain sucks at making hockey apparel. I have a few Nike USNTDP jerseys and they're all cheap feeling.
It's all presented in the interest of shaving a few ounces of weight but it just makes for a tacky and unsubstantial jersey. As a fan, I don't want that dye-sublimated or heat-pressed bullshit. Sew the stripes on. Tackle twill the logo on. I wouldn't pay $50 for one of these.

Gotta act outraged to get those listeners all fired up. He can only spend so much of the offseason speculating on the new starters around the country, but Harbaugh is a new story every week. It's not good radio, but for Finebaum it's easy radio.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I've been a user here for||
I've been a user here for over 7 years. You must be a serious conspiracy theorist if you think I've been playing such a long con that I've waited all this time so that I could call an article about a Michigan player "bad" and that is my great slight against Michigan.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||If the point of the article||
If the point of the article was to bring attention to these sort of great 2-way/3-way players then you'd think that mentioning Adoree Jackson would be a big point to miss.
I didn't bash Jabrill either. I said that he's a great player, but whatever. I've been damned as a heretic for not circlejerking hard enough I guess.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Bash Michigan? I didn't say||
Bash Michigan? I didn't say anything bad except about the article!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||The damned article is titled||
The damned article is titled "Give Jabrill Peppers the Heisman now" when the case for Jabrill to win the Heisman is pretty weak. He's a great player but when it comes to actually listing why he is the most outstanding player in the nation, it falls very flat.
The worst part is where the author wants to compare him to Woodson. It says "It’s hard not to compare Peppers to Woodson" and links it to a fucking article titled "Don't compare Jabrill Peppers to Michigan great Charles Woodson" that goes on to talk a great bit about how they're not a great comparison.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||No. It's because this article||
No. It's because this article doesn't even cite anything that Peppers has done to make him a candidate unless you count listing his 40 time or playing multiple positions.
It's a shitty argument. Titling this "Give Jabrill Peppers the Heisman now" will sure generate controversy and clicks though.
What does it say? What is the argument that this author is making that everybody here finds so compelling? Somebody please tell me.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Preseason Heisman talk is||
Preseason Heisman talk is dumb. Preseason Heisman talk about primarily defensive players is beyond idiotic. Matt Borcas is an Buckeye troll creating unreasonable hype just to be obnoxious.

Avant is still the most sure-handed receiver I've ever seen, so I don't think anybody is on his level.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||9-3 isn't really a crazy||
9-3 isn't really a crazy prediction. It just isn't bullish on us. Is there some kind of reason they should have a Michigan bias?
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||It's really bad. Progressive||
It's really bad. Progressive Insurance commercials between every segment and the segments are listed in reverse order, so you have to click your way through things if you want to get it in cronological order.
Why can't they just put the damned thing up on Itunes?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Hoo boy, those are big||
Hoo boy, those are big expectations by some folks.
Nebraska is being oversold. OSU and MSU are being undersold.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Football uniforms are||
Football uniforms are basically the same as last year which is good.
Hockey uniforms are less enthusing, which was to be expected but they kind of upped the disappointment with that bad faux-back that didn't look classic or even cohesive as a uniform.
Fan apparel is okay. I don't think I see any more stuff I like on Mden than I did before.
Those are where my priorities lie, so all things included it's been okay. I'm not enthralled by anything but most of it seems fine. Nike has always sucked at hockey stuff and still do though.

Oh, right. The secret super-combo of mesh, spandex, and rocket fuel.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Looks like the numbers are a||
Looks like the numbers are a little bigger and, of course, the new font is a little different than before. Other than that, they look basically the same as last year to me. Am I missing anything?

It's a script, but not the same script.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||That whole setup is a mess.||
Blue jersey with white socks? No stripes on the jersey to match the striped socks? Only a shoulder yoke? This had better fucking be a practice jersey, because that's what they designed.

Those shoes look like a crossdresser's handbag.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Not sure about that. When||
Not sure about that. When a group of recruits were asked about preferred apparel company Under Armour ranked lower than both Adidas and Nike. It's a small sample size but so is this B1G survey.

Ah... "next guy up." I guess there's no parallels to be drawn then.
