Don't be sexist.

a) I have fast internet. It's only 4x.
b) It's odd that some people judge your character based on putting a -1 on the internet, but whatever floats your boat.
c) As for letting it go, it seems to me that some of you have the choice of "letting go" seeing a -1, and I have the choice of "letting go" a nearly daily post about a topic that's irrelevant to Michigan. Either way, we could each let something go.
d) There are 5 upvotes and 4 downvotes on this topic. It appears to be almost 50/50 on how many people appreciate these threads and how many could do without them.
e) There are 17 weeks of NFL football with games about three days a week, plus playoffs. That's 51+ "OT: Football ____________" threads. There could be 162+ "OT: Baseball ___________" threads. There could be 164+ combined "OT: Hockey ________" and "OT: NBA ______________" threads. Fans of those sports don't generally start those threads, because that would be dumb.
I'm a fan of relevant threads about important developments in almost all sports, but daily open threads about any sport are overkill.
Of course, if you disagree, you can ignore this post. Just like you can ignore the -1. Or I can ignore the constant threads. Or you can make personal attacks or neg me, neither of which will bother me.
You and I disagree. It doesn't make you a douchebag or an asshole. I still think there's a good chance that you're a fine, upstanding human being.

It's "champing at the bit." Silly college kids...

I can't disagree that Peppers is a good athlete, but he's not that outstanding for a defensive back. His 40 time, jumping ability, etc. don't stand out as "wow" type of numbers. Now he might have been faster if he wasn't 213 lbs. at the Combine, but that combination of power, speed, and change of direction is very valuable at running back, too.

Yeah, but Runyan is a center/guard.

I don't know why a parent would call his/her kid "dumb," even if it's true.

No glory? That's all Khalid Hill got last year.
|2 days 5 hours ago||If the media's there taping||
If the media's there taping or broadcasting everything, then some guys might just DVR the thing on BTN or whatever and then watch it later. And I think it helps out the lesser players, who will get a chance to show off their personality and work ethic in person, rather than just trying to force an eye-popping performance in numbers. Maybe a guy like Erik Magnuson is much more impressive in person than he looks on the TV.

Kalis also worked with LeCharles Bentley in high school. I don't think Bentley has any kind of magical fix for Kalis.

Are you sure? I thought it was a reference to bowling pins.

No. It's closed to media, because Jim Harbaugh wants to make sure that scouts attend.

3.9 is the number of scouts that will be at MSU's pro day.

I don't know, but it's probably because NFL teams aren't that interested in drafting them. They're the ones who put together the invitation list for the Combine. If you look at the underperformance of Michigan's offensive line over the past few years, it makes sense that teams might not be too interested in drafting those guys.

That doesn't sound nearly as fun as making stuff up.

Dymonte Thomas will run a 4.21 forty.
Everything is exaggeratedly good at pro days.

I agree. I think Kansas would have beaten Michigan by 8 or 10 points. I still think Michigan played poorly last night and should have won the game if not for an uncharasteristic off night by Wagner and MAAR, but the run wouldn't have lasted past Saturday, IMO.

Still not a big deal.

Considering "the guys tries" and misspelling "embarrassing" in the other post above, I don't think you were trying to be sarcastic. It's okay not to take internet posting seriously, but passing it off as being "sarcastic" isn't a good look.

I know we're always looking for reasons to be offended, but this doesn't bother me at all.

You asked a question. I thought you wanted a legitimate answer. I guess not. Sorry for trying to help.

I miss the days of excellent Michigan hockey. Yost used to be a blast when the team was going really strong. I agree that it's time for Berenson to step down. He wanted to step down last year, so I don't think it's about "going out when he's ready." He's ready. It's just a matter of finding the right guy to replace him.

Coaches, third parties, etc. It doesn't matter what you call them. As long as they get paid, you'll continue to get good players. Don't worry, Nick.

I heard they're going to trade Peterson and Mathieu to move up to #1 to get Peppers.

I think we'll take two tight ends. Asiasi's departure opens up another spot.
Out of the guys we've offered so far, I think Will Mallory, Zach Sheffer, and Mustapha Muhammad are the best bets. I think Brevin Jordan is headed to UCLA, and I don't think Michigan is going to go after Taylor that hard from here on out. I don't know if he's a TE long-term, anyway.
