- What are people doing before they're about to rock?
- Are they doing something salute worthy?
- Is the act of about-to-rock more salute-worthy than the act of rock that is going to follow?
- Why are we "saluting" those about to rock?
- When you honor a rock musician, do you salute them?
- Is this rock musician your WWII Veteran grandfather?
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||Because of the attention paid to football vs. hockey||
Think about the fan and media response to football recruiting vs. hockey recruiting. The scrutiny and pressure is much more intense.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Bummed about Clark||
Chris Clark is one of those guys where if he was coming to Michigan, he probably woudn't have waited till signing day to announce. We've seen this "strong interest early - not commited (or decommited) but still interested - doesn't commit" situation with other top recruits in the past. Hope I'm wrong on this one.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Job Satisfaction > Money||
There comes a point where money isn't really a deciding factor... when you're already a millionaire, taking a job you don't want to go from rich to slightly more rich isn't appealing. If he wants to coach in the NFL, he's not going to consider coaching in college regardless of how much money we throw at him.

Swap it with a slightly smaller / sleepier kitten and that would be the best mascot ever.

Yea! I'm sick of him turning the ball over.

1. As a U of M Alum, I hate the term itself. It implies that U of M fans who didn't go to Michigan are poor rednecks who couldn't possibly become anything like they're U of M attending bretheren. I know plenty of U of M grads who flamed out, and plenty of people from smaller schools that are rocking their lives so hard.
2. WHY I WOULD DESPISE YOU FOR LOVING THIS THING THAT I LOVE. It's easy to love U of M if you went there, but if something draws you to U of M fandom without attending U of M, your fandom actually impresses me a little more.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||I'm looking at the registration rules online...||
... and I'm not seeing this. Do you have a source for the rule change?
EDIT: I see it. Man, that is confusingly written. So an alumni can sign up a bunch of non-alums, but for those non-alums to actually be able to attend they need to buy memberships? Yikes.

It provided a little insight into a Michigan recruiting battle. That was the point.

The biggest douche in the uuuuuuuniverse. In all the gaaaaalaxy, there's no bigger douche than heeeeee.

But I really want to get in on this thread. I love all the writing and insight from Brian and everyone else on this blog. Ignore all the haters and trolls.

|1 year 36 weeks ago||Don't be so sure...||
I'm not sure what people's' perception of a film program are, but the SAC major at U of M was pretty demanding if you wanted to do well academically. You had to learn a huge scope of film history, internatioinal cinemas, techniques, theory, etc., and use a ton of critical thinking skill. We also had to write a ton of three page papers... Papers where you've written 5-6 pages, and it seems impossible to make your argument more succinct. I also did screenwriting, which double my workload.
Anyway, not saying it's tough like engineering or something (cause it definitelty is not), but I could see it being tougher at times than the B school coursework (judging from my B school friends and working there as an undergrad). I imagine that at USC, which has a very respected film program, the requirements can be pretty tough.
EDIT: Man, totally forgot about the screenings. Those killed your week. I had upwards of 9 hours of screenings a week at times.

"It's an illogical argument that tries to equate correlation with causation."
The fact that you preceived the Cass connection as an attempt at serious evidence. lololol. I'm sorry, but I don't think you're ready for this blog.

"my perception is that the front page content has become increasingly more difficult to read with numerous bizarre allusions."
I'm 25 and have been reading this blog since the beginning of undergrad. My perception is that little is stylistically different. Brian is still busting out constant, hilarious content.
Citing one headline you don't understand as evidence of "numerous bizarre illusions"
The style of this blog is EVERYTHING and you are not allowed to groundlessly attack it. Your decreased consumption is a good thing.

Everybody has addictions. Just because yours aren't as noticeable or detrimental as drugs and alcohol doesn't mean they're not there. To say you have "no sympathy" for millions of people suffering with addiction and that they're all stupid is unbelievably insensitive, judgmental, and does nobody any good.

I can finally let go of these feelings :D
|2 years 42 weeks ago||I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE PURPOSE OF SAID SALUTE||
I think anybody that likes this song is taking crazy pills. Yes, Zoolander crazy pills. I can't think of a song that has a more cheesy, nonsensical chorus in all of music.
DISCLAIMER: I know none of the other words to this song. Maybe those other words explain the following questions.
It breaks down like this:
"For those about to rock" - nonsensical
Summary: WHY ARE WE SALUTING PEOPLE WHO ARE ABOUT TO ROCK BUT HAVEN'T ACTUALLY DONE ANYTHING YET?
"We salute you" - cheesy (also nonsensical)
Summary: Expressing honor for rock musicians by saluting them doesn't make any sense. That'd be like honoring Mother Theresa by punching her in the face.
I WANT ANSWERS BRAAAAAAAA

Nothing gets me more excited for Michigan football than digital engagement cycles.

Totally forgot. My brain is at ease.

Does that mean he doesn't like our chances with Diamond?
|3 years 4 weeks ago||^ Yes||
More towards Ace. Either way, I can't believe so many people jumped on my use of "we". It was more calling out the perception that it's ok to declare his commitment when he directly said he has not commited.

I don't have any direct experience playing civ, but EU is really really in depth. If you like like civ i'd deifnitely check it out. Also, Hearts of Iron is a title from the same company that's a WWII strategy game. It's a lot of fun; it's actually what I played first.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||EU2 <3||
Yes; this is the only sports blog to ever mention Europa Universalis. It's also the first mass-audience anything to mention Europa Universalis. But dear god is that one of the best games ever created... if you're in to 2d graphics and running the government of a country over many centuries. I know that's not everybodies thing.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||One more thing to add is that||
One more thing to add is that Catholic Central (and Godin) blew up Dearborn For(d)son. Typically being Dearborn's best team, it either means CC is that good or Dearborn football is not so good. Probably a lot of both.
