This is the dumbest comment. The importance of a confidence boosting goal for him prior to the world cup is without measure. If you don't know what you're talking about, don't post a comment

I know he makes great plays, but his sloppy handle always shows up right when Michigan needs a basket to stop the bleeding or get some momentum going. Drives me nuts. It seems to happen a few times a game and I feel like it'll cost them in March.

The problem is he is careless with the ball at really bad times. He always seems to be responsible for a 4-5 point swing for the other team right when Michigan needs a basket. It'll endup costing them at some point.

Alton Brown is not only irritating to watch, but consistently the worst "chef/cook" on the foodnetwork. my gf and I have been wondering for years who could actually enjoy watching him

I wouldn't right off assume we were bad, i was getting recruited to a lot of major lax schools before blowing my knee out

is what my Lax coach use to say about the long pole... but the long pole is definitely designed for the defensive side when you don't have the ball. It allows the defensive player to poke-check and slap from a longer distance, thus making it a little bit harder for the offensive players to get an open look.
I would say it is a little harder to shoot with a long pole, but speaking from experience, it is also a lot harder for the goalie to read the shot and see where the ball is headed. I was the second highest scorer on my highschool lax team from defense. Loved me some shooting

Though 2002 in Columbus as a freshman life-long UM fan was probably the only time I've actually felt my life in jeopardy. My encounter is interesting in that it involved tosu vs. UM and then a bunch of outside perspectives...
I wasn't sure how well represented the rivalry would be out here in Albuquerque, NM. Growing up the son of two Michigan grads, I'm use to encountering it anywhere I go, so I figured it would live on. And live on it does...
We have a sports bar here called Fox & Hound. Your typical sports bar.. Ton of TVs, beer mugs and team banners on the walls. The waitresses wear their favorite team's jersey during football season. Always a tosu girl and a umich girl, and a lot of Texas and UNM (University of New Mexico) jerseys. We usually have some fun with the tosu waitress, but always ends with a smile and another beer.
When I first moved here, I found out that this bar is the Saturday reserved alumni spot for Umich fans to watch the game, get a room reserved and everything. Well, it also happens to be tosu's alumni place as well..
During the big #1 vs. #2 battle I noticed something of interest. Between the random buckstached invaders to our side to promote the most recent touchdown, I noticed that more and more of the female wait staff was just standing around in our side of the place. I got the attention of a couple of them and asked why. They informed me that almost every single waitress hates tosu because of the people who come there. They show up an hour before the place opens. They get mad when the staff won't let them in 30 min. before opening. They decorate the entire place, streamers, red wall covers, inflatable Brutus, etc. Obviously, the Michigan jersey waitress gets the worse of it, but every one of the waitresses can't stand them. They even went as far as attacking the look, smell and eating habits of the tosu fans.
I tried to apologize to them as a general fan of college football. I told them I hope we weren't a pain for them on our side. The response I got will always make me even more proud to be a Michigan Wolverine. They told me that they love us there and that the staff will actually fight over who gets to work in our side and the ones that get stuck on the tosu side go as far as calling in sick sometimes to avoid them...
I think when your fan base creates loathing from waitresses, you've reached a whole other level of being obnoxious.
Though I guess in the end I should thank them... Room full of Michigan fans and all the gorgeous wait staff who are more than willing to keep the beers coming.. I'll take that any day...
|6 years 4 weeks ago||Confused||Maybe it's just me, and I'll probably get torn to pieces for this, but why were we alarmed that the away jerseys might change? When I was at UofM all anyone ever did was bitch about how our away jerseys looked like scrimmage jerseys and needed more color. I for one hope they change. I always liked the home jerseys so I'm glad they aren't changing much.|
