Completely agree. I think any sort of cheer referencing child molestation is in very poor taste.

I want our winning percentage title back like yesterday. All time wins title hasn't been the same without all time winning percentage.
|1 week 1 day ago||My sister went to Penn State,||
My sister went to Penn State, so I always rooted for them when they weren't playing us, and sorta respected their integrity. There's absolutely no excuse for what happened there under JoePa's watch, and I hate the apologists or folks who seem to pretend nothing happened (and I think the JoePa tribute this weekend was way too soon and therefore in poor taste), but I feel bad for the PSU fans/alums who feel terrible about what happened but still love their school and wanna root for their current football team, which had nothing to do with the past events.

My sense was that everyone was expecting a running play because their QB was hobbled. Not an excuse, but an explanation for what I'd consider/hope was a somewhat fluky play.

I agree that beating an undefeated MSU would be better for our SoS, but more importantly (for me at least) I want our damn all time winning percentage statistic back. Most all time wins is nice, but so much better when it's accompanied by all time best winning percentage.

You're all sycophantic sheep. A twelve year old could write this stuff, and I wouldn't be surprised if it was a 12 year old (WD?) who took over after the original haloscan THE KNOWLEDGE left.
I'm consistently surprised by how what may agruably be the smartest and wittiest sports blog community around consistently eats this up and begs for more.
This stuff makes Happy Gilmore look like a comedic masterpiece.

Oh. New shit has come to light.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Jordan evolved?||
I wish I could hear Harbaugh speak more to why he thinks Jordan is such a highly "evolved" human being. He's certainly insanely talented and driven, but I've also heard he's not a very morally upstanding human being.

I would not have liked these at 22 either. Maybe at 12 when I thought Zubazz pants were cool. Why are athletic shoes so damn tacky these days?

Umm, could certainly be worse.

The Final Cut is actually my favorite album of theirs, so I'd make that a 5 album run!

I had a great time at the Minnesota tailgate last year. Fans were friendly and fun. Felt bad for them the way that game went down, but glad we escaped with an exciting win!
|18 weeks 6 days ago||I got a GTI back in December||
I got a GTI back in December and am pertty happy with it. Really wanted a BMW or Audi wagon, but they don't make them in manual anymore. Thought about a WRX wagon, but that's a place I'll never go again after I had the engine replaced on my '02 in rally blue (prettiest car I've ever owned) and it died again after 2 years. Really wanted a Mini Countryman because I like the looks better than the GTI and I like an extra 1.5 inches of ground clearance (I do a lot of camping), but the interior was just nowhere near as nice/sophisticated as in the GTI.

Not to be that guy, but Laith is a good friend of mine and we hung out regularly my last two years in AA ('00-'01). He usually played gigs on weekend nights but would often stop by for after hours fun at our place at around 2AM (as did many other friends). Amazingly sweet guy...never heard anyone say a bad thing about him.
He also was the first person to turn me on to The Band and Bruce Hornsby.
We used to go see him weekly (Thursday nights?) at a bar in Ypsi where he would host open mic blues night. There were usually 20ish people in the bar, and most would be blown away by his talent. My favorite covers were Badge and the Bowie songs. I'm hoping he does a Bowie tune on The Voice, as it would be quite appropriate this year and could maybe turn some of these mainstream kids who watch the show on to Bowie.

Haha, I've been to Zingerman's with him...both super blazed. It was impossible to hang out with him and not be...

Haha, totally didn't catch that!
I never said I taught a spelling class ;)

As someone who used to teach research methods, this is a pet peave of mine as well.

Yep, me too. I was living in Bangor Maine at the time, and drove down to Boston to meet up with some college buddies to watch the season opener (with super high expectations for that season) and hang for the weekend. After the Horror most of my friends went to Fenway for a Red Sox game, but I was too depressed. Drove home, stopping at the New Hampshire highway liquor store on the way, and drank whiskey and watched Magnolia by myself that night.
One of my buddies told me about MGoBlog that weekend, and on Monday the emo cat pictures were the only thing that gave me some comfort.

Bought a 2015 GTI a few months ago. Love that car, and though lots of people mod them up I'm plenty happy with the stock acceleration. Just wish it had blue instead of red accents!

I've been out to Mt Hood a bunch in the last few months, and it's been killer. Meadows has had more snow than any resort in the US this year!
|31 weeks 5 days ago||Yep. I have no idea what||
Yep. I have no idea what they're even supposed to be. Our bball unis may not be as iconic as the football ones, but I think these short are even uglier than the clowniformz worn by the football team. Surprised they haven't been brought up more often.

Anyone know where we can watch the Black and Blue documentary?
|33 weeks 5 days ago||I think it's words to live||
I think it's words to live by. The video that condensed the speech is very well done. I'm a psychologist, and I show this to pretty much all of my clients when I teach about mindfulness and choice in how we see/experience the world.

Pizza House is good, but doesn't compare to most pizza joints in Jersey. Hopefully he tries Jets Pizza (which I miss the most since leaving Michigan) and the meaty hippie hash at Fleetwood.

I think Iowa is the real deal this year, and I'm glad we at least hung in there and made it a game after getting punched in the nose early.
Still gonna blame the ugly ass shorts for the loss, as well as all previous and future losses. We've had some ugly alternate football uniforms, but I could at least understand what they were going for. I've never seen us wear something this pointlessly ugly. Given how much attention the football clownifomz received, I'm surprised these shorts have been mostly an afterthought on here.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||I'll admit it, I thought||
I'll admit it, I thought Harbaugh was just protecting Rudock's ego/confidence from the fans/media with that "not even close" comment. Very glad I was wrong.
