|3 weeks 5 days ago||bye week trouble||
The bye week isn't consistent from year to year, the best choice is to do it in the spring or early summer to avoid conflict altogether.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Same question/comment||
I logged in to say the same thing. I have asked Directv in the past and it has never been something they would do. I would even be ok with an idea like making a sports package you can buy like Sunday Ticket or Extra Innings where you pay annually and get the broadcasts for one team from each of the four pro sports.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Regional differences||
I have lived outside of Michigan most of my adult life and the only Michigan football game that I can remember not being televised was the Michigan @ UCONN game. I lived in Arizona at the time and due to some kind of Big East TV deal it was ABC only East of the Mississippi and not broadcast West. Having lived in Tennessee and now Georgia between BTN and ESPN all Michigan football games have been televised. I havent paid close enough attention to any other sport to notice how often they aren't.

I literally got off the app and logged in on my phone just to upvote you.

Whatever the number is doesnt resonate with me. The individual men that I was friends with that didnt come home, thats what I remember.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||You are correct||
I am not sure about the supreme court case but years ago there was a considerable amount of media coverage because the state of Louisiana made the legal age to consume 21 but you were still allowed to purchase at the age of 18 and the federal government started threatening their highway dollars.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||The reason for the random number||
Being legally intoxicated at a BAC of 0.08 is tied to lobbying done by "Mothers Against Drunk Driving". The federal government while not in a posistion to force standards on individual states, are able to take a back door measures to enforce what they want. In this case the federal government tied tax revenue for road repairs to drunk driving standards each state has effectively forcing each state to comply with the federal 0.08 standard. While accidents associated with drinking alcohol and driving are above zero at every level of BAC there isnt a real spike in percentages until about 0.15 nearly twice what the current standard is.

The title makes it look like the new episode is already posted and this is a link.

It is assembled in Mississippi but all the profits got to Japan. I side with Mike Illitch and support our local Detroit automakers. At least those porfits stay local.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Well put||
You make a lot of good points and I still reach out to my parents for guidance on some things, however, you lose out on the opportunity to have someone that society says is already an adult to do adult things like be held personally accountable for their actions and to have to face learning from their mistakes head on. All situations are different and call for different responses but I have seen a number of people that have had alcohol and drug related incidents and their parents getting involved to try and help their chilldren to not make bigger mistakes only served to cause larger issues in the future because they didnt have to pay full price for their mistakes early on.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Legal Issue||
If this is a legal issue why not involve law enforcement? It seems kind of odd that when a young person is trying to figure out how to be an adult the institution that is supposed to help them figure it out says if you do this we will run and tell your parents.

what he did as a player is among the all-time greats. If you want to hold him accountable for his actions as a manager and say he can never be associated with baseball again that's fine and I agree with it, but what he did as a player? There is no question.
|51 weeks 3 days ago||Pete Rose||
Every baseball commissioner who has kept the all-time hit king out of the hall of fame for something he did as a manager. Players who have cheated while playing the game are in and he is not, that is a travesty.
|1 year 1 week ago||lived on the west coast||
having lived on the west coast for a total of four football seasons, I can say definitively that I would not make sure I was awake and in front of my television for a noon eastern kickoff unless Michigan was playing. if they were I was pregaming by seven and if not I might catch the second half of a game that looked interesting.

I had to log in to up vote because so many people didnt get that it was a pulp fiction quote and that is one of my favorite movies

I still remember his long touchdown run in the Rose Bowl like it was yesterday
|1 year 18 weeks ago||how % chance of rain works||
the way the weather forecast works as far as % chance of rain works is as follows: if there is any chance (in this case 80%) the percentage reflects the amount of the forecast area will receive rain therefore if it's 80% chance it means that there is a 100% chance of rain occurring but only 80% chance it will happen where you are...much like it's a 100% chance that Jim harbaugh will coach next year but currently will only coach 80% of Michigan's games
|1 year 24 weeks ago||I am not trying to defend Frank Clark but...||
everything that was said in the article was referenced either from witness statements from people that were of relation to the alleged victim or from a view of he is guilty. I am with the majority as it relates to his standing if he is guilty but before we go any further can we wait for some kind of evidence beyond a local newspaper report before we convict this young man.

|1 year 34 weeks ago||The rivalry from SW Michigan||
I really like the idea of this thread and was considering starting one myself but had the same worries as the OP. I grew up in Southwest Michigan on the Indiana border closer to South Bend than any school in Michigan. We had a lot of fans of ND which made the rivalry significant growing up along with the fact that Michigan was at its peak of success in my lifetime and ND wasn't that far removed from their own recent success in 1988. I grew up watching the great battles with Desmond and the Rocket providing great early season fireworks and the ND hype of will Ron Paulus (spelling) and will he be the first three time Hiesman winner. Now having been away from Michigan for what is essentially my entire adult life galvanizing my Michigan loyalty and fandom I think it really sucks that we are going to not have this game anymore. I am about to make the four hour drive from my house in Georgia to my childhood best friends house in South Carolina and we will see the last chapter in this rivalry and have these moments solidifying the fact that ND is the worst neighbor in the history of neighbors and know that our win will be a nice final twist of the knife in their jealousy of why we are better.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||maturity sometimes comes with maturity||
I was 24 years old and had already spent multiple years of my life overseas in defense of our country and still managed to make mistakes that I would probably be burned at the stake for on this board if I played football for Michigan. If it weren't for people that saw potential in me I know I wouldn't be where I am today in life. While his next chance is not going to be at Michigan, I hope this young man the best and hope he learns from his mistakes and can use it for good, much like Billy Taylor was able to rebound.

If Coach Jackson had his way he would recruit him with the speed of Tyrone Wheatley, the moves of Jamie Morris, and the power of Leroy Hoard...except faster, stronger and with better moves.

he is probably just mad that they didn't hold out for what fisher can bring now that he has the clout of being a national champion head coach

I feel the exact same way for the exact same reasons but you said it much better than I think I could have.

Devin Funchess. If I understand tight end numbering correctly they can wear numbers in the 90s and he is poised to be a breakout freak.
