If they just posted a video, or kickstarter, or whatever and let it grow by a grassroot campaign, and it earned enough money to pay someone to poop out a song, I would disagree but have no hate towards them.
But to use the tactics they are using, I can't get behind. When you count on friends and family to up vote you, pay for interviews, and just plug yourself everywhere, it hurts this kind of campaign. If you have to work this hard for something that should be of the fan, for the fan, then you haven't achieved that at all.

You sir, are a Michigan Man.
In the past whenever friends who aren't Michigan fans brought up what the term "Michigan Man" meant, thinking that only graduates of UofM can have that moniker applied to them, I would try to explain something like this. You're smart and prepared and use your abilities to help others.

I definitely agree, but sometimes it is fun to think you are smart and make an argumentative statement.

Yes, he's still attached to his douche umbilical cord.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Being and asshole doesn't||
Being and asshole doesn't mean you're an idiot. I met plenty of UofM, highly intelligent, social responsible people during my 8 years in Ann Arbor, 6 years in undergrad and grad school, who were just huge dicks. Most of them were in programs or from families where they felt overly entitled, much like I imagine these two boys were.
That being said, if I was around when this event happened, I would have wanted to punch those two boys square in the mouth.

I woke up this morning from a dream that said I'd read about the merry pranksters on mgoblog, but I just assumed it would have been in a thread about Leo Dicaprio coaching at Notre Dame.

They each sleep with the hot one, and she is virgin both times.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||I was drinking||
I was drinking Baird/Ishii/Stone Japanese Green Tea IPA at a drinking establisment this evening. I enjoyed it so much that I came home and jammed a bunch of Lipton Earl Grey tea bags into a 40 of St. Ives. And I must say, that other than my creation tasting disgusting and nothing like the BISJGTIPA, it tasted just like the BISJGTIPA.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||He does wear many different||
He does wear many different schools, like 20-30, but I do remember reading somewhere that he at least has a friend of family member who attended, or is a big fan of each school.
So at least Leo knows someone who, in someway, likes Michigan. That's bigger than going to the moon.

The only way for them to get out of this is to pull an even zanier prank.

If there ever was a time for a double, triple or even quadruple post, it was for these two posts.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Wow, you missed my point||
Wow, you missed my point entirely. i'm saying that people who think just because it was a blowout that the NFL shouldn't look into it further to see if this has been systematic behavior for the Patriots are possibly missing a bigger issue. Yes, the level of inflation in the football made no difference in the AFC Championship game.
And I did play both football and basketball in high school. Having a football under inflated does make a difference to how it feels and how easy it is to grip and handle.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||I also don't understand why||
I also don't understand why you can't use NFL ballboys, they use them for the chain gang. I think that they should use the same balls, or since they let them scuff the balls up anyway, why not just let each team inflate them to whatever level they want.
You know teams would invest money and time into finding just the perfect pressure for different weather and temps. Studio analysts will then be able to break down whether or not a team lost because of using a too highly inflated ball that led to a late fumble.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||I agree that this is stupid,||
I agree that this is stupid, overblown and gone on way too long. But at this point, the only thing that matters is if the NFL can find and prove that this has been ordered by the coaching staff and going on for a long time. If it turns out that the Pats deflate balls every game, or even just every cold/wet game, then it is a big deal.
I think that that everyone who completely dismisses this issue based only on the AFC championship game are missing a, possibly, bigger issue.

I assume WD's room, if not whole house, is full of articles, stat pages, and other Michigan news just plastered to every wall and blacking out the windows. He's just consuming it all the time.

Well, we aren't all left handed or Lithuanian. So my kids were slow developing.

Over/Under number of orgasms had to this photo. Hundreds? Thousands?
Not only having to do with sports and Michigan, but just people in general.

Children are self-sufficient at 4 years old, right?

To upvote is to kill.
So as a society we truly do only elevate people we want to bring down. See: Christopher Reeves.

Some comment(s) got deleted I hope, otherwise I'm very confused about all the hostility.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||I assume that we have all||
I assume that we have all made decisions when we were 16/17/18 years old that we regretted six hours later.
I know when I was 16 I decided not to wrap it up and six hours later I realized it was bad idea. A couple weeks later I was really worried about my decision and my future, but it all worked out and was a false alarm and I didn't have some small human being screaming at me for the next four years.
We'll see how McMillon's story plays out the next few weeks/years.

Break "posbang" into two words and you might get a better idea.
posban - meaning is self-explanatory.
g - sometimes stands for "gangster".
Posbang = Self-explanatory gangster.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||This might be taken the wrong||
This might be taken the wrong way, but how did it set back your house a decade or more? Ok, it takes 10 years to get back to the same status, but it isn't like your research got destroyed and you had to start over.
I know, it is probably just syntax, but I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

So this is closer to 'Nam than to bowling.
|14 weeks 17 hours ago||I was going to ask the same||
I was going to ask the same thing. What are the rules for transfers like this? Is it where he played the most, where he graduated, or just both? This is very important to figure out.
|14 weeks 17 hours ago||Don't know if this is how it||
Don't know if this is how it works, but here is how I'd think of it if I were a coach.
I'd grade out players where there is interest and if they have a certain grade, say 90 or higher, I'd offer them. As other players commit to other schools and NSD gets closer and closer I'd lower my threshold. If I get a kid with a verbal to Michigan at the same position, I'd raise my threshold for new offers, so I'd offer a kid with a 95 now, but not a 90, because at some point you take talent no matter who else is coming.
Maybe Nolan would never have gotten an offer if Harbaugh was here for the whole recruiting cycle, but this timeframe does change everything.
|14 weeks 18 hours ago||I can't believe 91% of people||
I can't believe 91% of people ages 18-34 are on facebook. Does that count if you have ever had a facebook account or just at the time of the survey? I used to be on but deleted my account several years ago.
I was a freshman at Michigan, living in East Quad when we first got facebook. I was the second person from my hometown on, crazy to think how that has changed.
|14 weeks 18 hours ago||My guess is that Harbuagh||
My guess is that Harbuagh rates him high enough that he will be happy if he commits and really wants to play here, rather than wait on a hypothetical.

IF Brady was a free agent this off season, and IF he participated, he could walk the 40 and demand to only participate in the linebacker skill drills, and still get paid.
