Denard finished 6th in 2010, and they only had 3 finalists that year (Cam Newton, Andrew Luck, and LaMichael James)

There's that thoughtful and smart WolvDev comment we all know and love
|3 days 23 hours ago||Anybody who thinks FSU is||
Anybody who thinks FSU is gonna get "the Rutgers treatment" either doesn't follow football outside UM, or is vastly overrating us. Florida State isn't a pushover, they've been basically top-20 for Fisher's entire career, including an undefeated season bookended by a 1-loss and 2-loss seasons.
Outside of that one bowl game where Oregon thrashed them, they've been competitive in every single bowl they've played. They're not going to give up, like Florida clearly did last year.
That's not to say we can't win, and I think we will, but I think this is gonna be a pretty close game

So he asks why we want cups that remind us of losing to OSU, and your response is to post 4 cup years where we beat OSU, and another where we tied them?
|4 days 10 hours ago||Ingredients 2 tablespoons||
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Melt the butter with 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a skillet; transfer to a bowl. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the skillet. Add the onion, garlic and jalapeno and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the chili powder, cumin, cinnamon and 1 teaspoon salt; toast 30 seconds. Add the tomato and cilantro and cook until slightly dry, about 2 minutes. Stir in the chicken and sour cream and warm through. Remove from the heat.
Brush a rimmed baking sheet with some of the butter-oil mixture. Spread 2 tablespoons refried beans down the center of each tortilla, leaving a 2-inch border on both ends. Top with 1 cup chicken mixture and 1/4 cup cheese. Fold in the ends and roll up.
Put the chimichangas seam-side down on the baking sheet; brush with the butter-oil mixture. Bake 8 to 10 minutes per side, brushing again after you flip. Top with the sauce, more cheese, lettuce and tomato. Serve with rice and the remaining beans.
Make Chi-Chi's Mexi-sauce:
Saute 1/2 cup chopped onion and 2 chopped garlic cloves in a skillet with vegetable oil. Add a pinch each of chili powder, cumin, sugar and salt; cook 30 seconds. Stir in two 4-ounce cans chopped green chiles (drained and rinsed); cook 2 minutes. Add 1 cup chicken broth and simmer until thickened, then puree. Stir in 1/4 cup chopped cilantro.

It used to be harder to get to 100 points. Now, even if something gets negged a bunch, it only takes 1 or 2 open threads to get up to 100

This ranking is even less meaningful than any preseason rankings

When we scheduled Colorado they were a trash team. It was pure luck they turned into a good win this year

Good lord, there's a nuance about this situation that you don't seem to be able to grasp.
Yes, I would much rather have 2016 than 2014. We've went from a MAC coach to a top-10 coach. We've went from getting beaten like a rag doll by any time with a pulse (and some without pulses), to beating teams like ragdolls. We're going to a NY6 bowl instead of the BWW Bowl. I would take 2016 over 2014, or 2013, or 2012, and so on.
But. That doesn't mean I'm not allowed to be a little upset at how this season ended.
We lost to Ohio State. Again. We shit the bed against a vastly weaker team. Again. We're now on year 12 of "Well, maybe next year" as far as a B1G title is concerned.
So yeah, I am a little mad about this year. I really thought we had a shot at making it to Tampa this year, and now we're talking about "Well, maybe next year..." At a certain point, I'm tired of hearing about next year.
It's like if you win the lottery, but then break your legs in an accident. Yes, things are better than they were before. And yes, your legs are going to heal eventually. But in this moment, it's ok to be upset at the situation

If you think National Championships during the 70's and 80's were "mythical" then I wonder what you say about National Championships at the start of the 20th century, when the game was basically rugby with slightly different rules.

Mackey Award really screwed up by leaving Evan Engram off the list. He's got almost 1000 yards receiving (more than all the finalists), and 8 TDs (Butt and Leggett are tied with 4 each)

Oh no. We get ESPN's prime time crew for our biggest game of the year
What a calamity
|3 weeks 9 hours ago||Changing his ways doesn't||
Changing his ways doesn't change the fact that he refused to let black athletes on his teams. Or that he hated Irish Catholics almost as much as he hated blacks.
It's good that he changed his ways, and acted like decent human being, but that doesn't excuse his prior actions.
You've built this cult of personality around men you've never met, and are excusing sexist/racist behaviour on their ends under the guise of "well shucks, that's just how it happened back then".
It's not about applying 2016 standards to win an internet argument. It's about applying common human decency standards, and being able to admit that everybody, even good football coaches, have their flaws

So we should excuse Fielding Yost's incredible racism because a lot of other people were racists too?

True. But a lineman who makes himself as tall as possible is way more exposed to getting knocked down via bullrush, creating a hole in the line.

What things did he signal handily screw up or plane give up on?

You realize that Bettman is only a moutpiece for the owners right? He didn't just wake up one day and decide, "Hey, let's have a lockout!".
All of those decisions were made by owners, or in the case of teams moving south, things out of his command, and Bettman was left trying to explain/rationalize it to fans.
And as far as the Stanley Cup presentation goes, a mockery of the sports pinnacle moment? Are you kidding me? It's a freaking trophy presentation. You sound like one of those #pleaselikemysport twitter morons

Maybe, but the rest of us can all point and laugh at both teams
|6 weeks 2 days ago||That's true, the loudest||
That's true, the loudest voices have a disproportionate impact on how we see things, but I was mostly using the examples to show that Ann Arbor/Washtenaw county aren't these magical places with no racism or problems.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I never mentioned or compared||
I never mentioned or compared 21st century issues. I said implicit bias was a large problem in 21st century *US racism*
|6 weeks 3 days ago||OP you weren't terrible about||
OP you weren't terrible about it, but one of the bigger dangers about 21st century US racism is the fallacy that it only exists "down South". Racism and bigotry knows no geographic border, and is in more places than just Alabama and Mississippi.
Speaking from personal experience and growing up in SE Michigan, I lost track of the total number of Confederate Flags I saw, either on vehicle stickers, or belt buckles, and so on. Just down the street, at EMU, people wrote "KKK" and "Leave Nigger" on the side of a dorm.
And I'd urge some of the above comments to be wary of seeing Ann Arbor as a "special place", exempt from racism. In the last few weeks people were leaving/distrbuting flyers around UM halls. The flyers speak for themselves. Racist things can and do happen at UM too

Michigan was just above bottom feeder when Trey came here, it's not like he walked into an elite program
Our best year under Beilein, up until Trey, was taking Duke to the wire in the 2nd round. Trey made Michigan, not the other way around

There's like 130 D1 schools, and half of them will let you in as long as you can spell your name correctly. That's not something to brag about
And WolvDev, you completely missed my point, which had nothing to do with food, gourmet or not. It was about your complaining

Well then maybe you should have worked harder, and developed a skill that schools want

Without Trey, our basketball resurgence doesn't happen. Without him, we don't hang this banner
As far as I'm concerned, he's given more than enough to Michigan, and he's entitled to his opinions
