The crazy thing is that they were actually delusional enough that they pushed the issue with the insurance company trying to get money back. They either didn't think this would come out, or didn't think it was bad enough to warrant consideration.
They are the reason this stuff is coming to light.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Preacher on AMC||
I won't repost the other stuff people have listed, but I will toss in a new one I hope is getting enough viewers to get renewed.
Preacher is on AMC, first season, only about 6 episodes so far. It's the first show in a while that has me checking the calendar looking forward to when the next episode is on.
I admit, it's weird, but just the right amount of it. Vampires, Angels, Demons, Murder and all kinds of craziness.

The issue I take with the whole thing isn't even whether or not they're guilty of it, but that there is already a set punishment for equipment tampering.
So even though I look at it as ridiculous because of how little of an impact it had on games, it's much the same as pitchers scuffing balls, if you want to punish them you stick to the defined punishment.

maybe terrible is too strong, but I'm not one for the having to tie up all the loose strings approach. they really weren't very loose, as nothing surprising happened. You can continue a story without spoon-feeding your audience. don't need a bang, but for me it didn't create that desire for more. thought the dialogue was boring
|22 weeks 1 day ago||this^||
I am so confused by comments with people saying that was a hell of an episode. Did I watch something different? that was a terrible season premiere
|30 weeks 5 days ago||I actually didn't compare him||
I actually didn't compare him to the old one at all. Never even mentioned Vader in my post. A villain can be analyzed without comparison, as I did. The overal plot was a rehash of the original three, but I don't want Vader again. As I said in my post, I was looking for the next installment. I want someone interesting that I am intrigued by the potential moving forward. What I got was a whiny child who not only appeared beatable, but actually was by both a storm trooper and another teenager who could some how woosah her way into the force without any knowledge of it prior.
Kylo Ren could have been scary if his temper tantrums resulted in doing something more than throwing a fit and breaking a few things. I like the idea of the outcast that isn't fully feared by anyone, including his own men, but it has to be done in a way that shows you why you want to see him get to that point. I didn't even hate him for killing Han, that's how hard they failed at making him hateable, which all good villains are. Whiny teenagers are not interesting, intimidating, or scary. They are annoying. So if their goal was to make an annoying character, then success. I imagine they were going for interesting and intimidating, and they missed.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||For the life of me I just||
For the life of me I just can't understand the love for Kylo Ren. What is it born out of? He wasn't intimidating at all. I know some people talk about his outbursts as scary because he has the potential to snap at any moment, but it didn't come across as scary. To me it was like a whiny little teenager. I felt more like he could be defeated by anyone because he lacked control more than he was to be feared. I hope he does pan out, but I just seriously struggle to understand the praise for the actor and character.
I didn't dislike Episode VII, I am in the camp that was hoping for the next installment and got the identical story again. It was really well done, just dissapointing from a plot perspective.

Didn't say anything about dunking. And calling that technique "middle school basketball coaching" is pretty funny. You actually described the exact reason you don't bring the ball down after a rebound or receiving a pass in the post. If you pump too often, or dribble, it gives the defender a chance to reload and time the block. If you go up right away, it takes that away. Obviously I'm not saying every time, as you have to pump and pivet to get better looks at times, but our bigs almost always pump or dribble.
It's not about size or athleticism, which I agree our bigs lack, but its a clear softness. I don't expect them to win every battle, but there are times where it seems like they don't even know how to box out, and against smaller players too.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Soft bigs||
I would say the fact that the bigs play afraid under the basket is a sign that Alexander isn't doing a good job. Also, the bigs are failing at routine techniques. Some of the first things you're taught as a post player is to always go straight up to the basket when you get the ball. No dribble, no hesitation, especially on rebounds. The announcers make multiple comments per game about one, or all, of our bigs doing this multiple times. Maize glasses have to be the only way you can possibly look at our bigs and say they are improved.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||this one||
That's the right one. I called, they said, "We're getting a lot of calls about it." And when I said I hope to never see this angle again, the guy laughed and said he'd be surprised if it ever got used again.

no way they can get him to the levels they did in the graphic novel, hope they don't pull back too much though
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Not quite like this||
I think there's a big difference between 4* highly rated recruit that states Michigan leads for a long time but won't commit, and the overall #1 5* recruit doing the same.
Not only is this situation unique because his mom is clearly looking to make an educated decision, but I wouldn't be surprised if outlets like ESPN reached out directly to him as it got late into the cycle and told him something like if you wait to commit till on NSD, we'll feature you on ESPN.
|34 weeks 6 days ago||Buffalo||
Go back to his days at Buffalo and you can see how he makes strong hires and grows the department, more football specific. I think the UCONN stuff is more an example of maintaining the high level of excellence the school had in basketball. No one is making UCONN a football destination, but he kept basketball strong through sanctions and a big time retirement.
|34 weeks 6 days ago||...||
I would say Hackett is the exception. The business world guys will more likely be in the mold of Brandon. Manuel is a proven AD that has successfully navigated sanctions and the retiring of a legend coach. Do want

he did talk about needing to completely retool both lines, which is crazy inaccurate

Yeah, not so much. Very vanilla compared to other options out there. Go for the S6. Thing is crazy smooth and the camera makes the iPhone camera look like a Polaroid

Agreed. They lost me last season, didn't have the same feel as seasons 1-3

I'd say this is true for Nolan's Batman 1 & 2. The third one just was not very good, and I really tried to like it.

Wait, people dislike Jared Leto? His acting roles have been pretty solid.

Feel it's a crying shame these aren't more well know:

I would say this comment is absolutely ridiculous on a blog with constant tigers, lions and red wings updates. Unless you meant to say the state of michigan related, cause otherwise there is a lot of non-michigan sports news on this site. I just don't click it as I could not care less about those teams, but one could argue that just because the university is in michigan, does not make the pro sports teams relevant to this site.

Don't get me wrong, big fan of jj and the star trek movies, but once someone pointed out his affinity for lens flares, star trek became a little harder to watch

But what's the over under on lens flares?
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Find a good bartender||
I agree with your #1 & #2, and I would add that a good bartender at a local spot with a bunch of craft beers on tap can be really helpful. They can make suggestions based on things you like, they usually have no problem giving free tastes. If they work at a place with a lot of craft beers, they're usually pretty excited to share their favorites and talk some brew.

On illustrating perfectly what is wrong with the Internet. Just because you can post something doesn't mean you should. Even if you did call this, so what? Internet trophy/fake money time?

I still don't get this "we don't have a QB" thing. Everyone regressed under Hoke. None of us know anything more than what the talent was believed to be when it came in.
People jumping ship on Morris and Speight is blowing my mind. Give them a chance with actual coaches with track records of improved QB play. If they still make no strides, or regress further, then feel free to preach all you want about how we have no QB.

Faux Harbaugh thread
|1 year 40 weeks ago||spiller||
That's a good point. Didn't know he was back. Jackson did decent last weekend, not sure they'll sit him for spiller immediately. And Oakland is awful in rush defense.
I'm worried murray won't get the passes he usually gets with the injury and if the OL isn't full go he may not have the same big holes he's been seeing all year. So hard to sit him with the season he's having though.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||...||
1. WR and flex, choose 2. I have CJ Anderson, Fred Jackson, Mike evans, vjax, lafell, kenny stills, and watkins.
2. DeMarco Murray is making me nervous if he'll start. I have Fred Jackson or CJ Anderson as backups, should I risk it and start murray? also worried that Dallas has a couple OL with questionable tags too
|1 year 40 weeks ago||CFP||
The problem with this approach now is that OSU getting destroyed hurts the big ten for future CFP placement. The Big Ten got preferential treatment this year. OSU drops an egg, as enjoyable as we all would find that as fans, down the road if Michigan is vying for a spot, that treatment may not be there.
