Need to slap some sense into people every once in awhile

is a town called East Lansing, where the ladies are loose, and the men get so intoxicated, they rarely recognzie that you are swooping in on their co-eds. If you didn't take advantage of it when you were in AA, I suggest you offer this advice to those you care about.

Comparably speaking, USC is right up there to ND in academics. And on paper, most would probably prefer the warmer weather in CA. But when it comes down to it, I don't think USC can hold ND's nut sac, in an academic battle. My hire is on the ND grad, hands down.

Because for the last 7 years or so, about every couple weeks, a clever OSU fan finds great humor in proclaiming "we need Michigan to be good, for the sake of the Big Ten". I"m not sure if you call that "pity", but I definitely find it to be less-than-genuine. MSU fans have even gotten on that bandwagon. Can't blame them though, I guess. Just part of the college fandom equation.

The one up top about the writer not being Jack Karouac is just obnoxious. Don't f&ckjng read it than, loser. I had no opinion on this article other than I enjoy a well thought out article and the guy took the time to share his feelings. Moderators should limit all commenters to one bitch about another commenter per year. I think I just used mine up.

Attrition isn't talked about, nor is attitude adjustments. But a broken bone, he'll let us on to that.

That's the way I think it happened also. His mistake was being compassionate to an animal, and now the lemmings have turned it around oh him. You learn early on in life, and the business world, to keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. His only crime here is underestimating how many athletes would be sympathetic to Rice's cause.

I think Paul George, really summed it up strong, when he tweeted " I don't condone hittin women or think it's coo BUT if SHE ain't trippin then I ain't tripping.. Let's keep it movin lol let that man play".....

If you weren't aware, Ray Lewis was was on the news self proclaiming himself as Ray Rice's "mentor". I got a semi-chuckle out of that.

I may not agree with your statement, but I do agree with your Two Hearted picture. Man alive. Tasty.

"He has done basically nothing to dissuade players from beating up women." Are you saying that in jest? If you keep thinking that the responsiblity to ensure domestic bliss, is on Goodell (or anyone, but the individual), you'll continue to be let down. I'm shocked you think it's on Goodell to "DISSUADE" them, from beating up their wives. As if it's innate, or human nature, to abuse, and Goddell has to try and teach them otherwise? Maybe you are right about that...maybe it's so far beyond repair, that we should just accept the fact he employs criminals, and just take it for what it's worth...good football. But I tend to think otherwise. Like i said ealier, this has nothing to do with Goodell, and everything to do with the criminals he employs, and subsequently, how we punish them. If that's Goodell's fault, then may I suggest a warm home in the Alaskan wilderness with a population density of one human, per 90 square miles. There tends to be less crime there.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Yea....||
That was Goodells fault too
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Are you||
Talking about Goodell, or Brandon?
|6 weeks 1 day ago||So...||
The blame lies on the individual or entity who handles the crime, rather than the criminal? Something ain't right here.

This isn't about Goodell. It's about Rice. Media is doing a great job of convoluting the issue at hand. Which of course, is that Ray Rice and an enormous amount of NFL players don't have the ideal relationships with their girlfriends/spouses. By ideal, I mean historically sound husband, wife, children, marriage. It's an alarming trend of infidelity, abuse (as we see with ray rice, or however you want to define it), children out of wedlock, selfishness, and Irresponsibility. What you have here is a microcosm of US demographics that is rearing it's ugly face. Shifting blame, falls on my deaf ears, and should do the same for most. With that said, I f@cking love football and will continue to engross myself in everything related to it. #goblue

So, I started thinking, what Ray might attempt to do, to put himself in a better light. Jesus, was of course, at the top of my list, but then I started to put a couple issues the NFL is dealing with presently, together: Violence, and Concussions. Will Ray Rice say that concussions have left him depleted of the ability to control his emotions, and thus his subsequent physical actions? So will Ray jump on the concussion bandwagon, and claim that he wasn't a violent person prior to the assualt of his fiance. I think this may be the likely outcome.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Bingo||
I thought the exact same thing. She was knocked out! What type of force could the NFL (or anyone for that matter) have imagined could have been used to knock a human unconscious, that would alleviate the severity of the assault...... 460 pillow strikes, and excessive tickling? I mean...Good Lord. Before I saw the video, i imagined he either grabbed ahold of her head and slammed it in to the wall, or did exactly what we saw, punched her out. Now that I know he is not only a criminal, but a liar, he's best left to judicial system, rather than the court of public opinion. I'd be surprised if this doesn't go to trial. I can't imagine that with this evidence, they actually need the wife to give her consent (or accusation), to prosecute him. With this precident set, I suspect we'll see more girlfriends/wives, coming forward against other athletes. Yes, i know, it transcends all aspects of life, but I think that once a punishment is dulled out in severity, you'll see the stigma of being a rat, somewhat removed.

Until Jesus rears his holy face.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||You're right...||
It would look terrible. I can't imagine any team, picks up an abuser, and risks the wrath of the public, as well as endorsements. I'd assume any company, who backs a team, would put themselves in great public ire, if they were to back a team that backs Ray R. Now, and it's a big NOW, what if he declares he's turned his life around, with the help of Jesus, and deserves another chance? I've noticed that Jesus...maybe because he's unable to speak for himself....tends to lend his assistance to those between a rock and a hard place.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Spectacular...||
Now of course, the conversation will revolve around which team would/could pick him up, if the Union determines he was wrongfully terminated. I found it intersting that on MIke and MIke this morning, they kept repeating that Ray couldn't be punished twice, and the Ravens had no grounds to re-punish him. Well, that was flat out incorrect. Bravo Baltimore. What a pile of S.

Good to go. I'll stick to appreciating the Drinking Thread for awhile.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Reminds me..||
.....Of the guy on NFL Radio (Sirrius) this morning that pointed out that she was unconscious because her head hit the railing, and it probably wasn't the second punch that did the damage. Words cannot begin to explain how rediculous that comment is. Un-Effing-believable. The real sad part of this situation, indeed, is that the woman continues to think he's a worthy husband, most likely, due to his deep pockets. When he gets back to the NFL, off his suspension, I hope he's treated like he's in the clank. I'm sure there are some gentlemen who feel strongly about what he did, and might want to take it out on a guy running up the middle.....
|6 weeks 4 days ago||x||
No intent. Just shooting the S like I was bellied up to a local pub. There's obviously some guidelines that I crossed. I did, however, remember enjoying the "he's definitly a domer, 'look he has only 101 mgopoints', he can barely start a thread". The "he's not worthy" angle is one for that will never go away, so i'll just have to be patient with it. I'm going to work on being more worthy, soon.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Out?||
What kind of out do you want? I'vebeen considering coming out of the closet for almost 5 years...... I"m blond haired, blue eyed, and enjoy Saturdays.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks...||
55+ year season ticket holder. Fathers ashes at the stadium (I'm sure mine will be also). Alumni. In other words...."a domer". Defending one's affiliation, is a real f*cked up part of athletics. Honestly, thought it might be a bit different in this blog, but it's clear there are many who just want to attack others. I think it tends to come from those...that maybe didn't graduate from Mich, but in retrospect, deleting the thread maybe saved me some more personal attack.. Again, my bad...won't do that again. BTW...the pictures were from when I worked for The Capital One Bowl. If you had access to the press box...you'd get a good feel on what type of individuals are backing Michigan, and who isn't.

"Strib's Girl" sat in front of me on Saturday. At least that's what her jersey said. She wasn't happy about the touchdown he gave up. Not one bit happy.
