You put the academies fifth? What do you hate the troops?

Man, I really got negged for simply appreciating MSU's fight song (for which I don't know the name of, nor care).
Let me re-iterate; Victors, by a long shot. Then, maybe, we can talk On Wisconsin and Rah Rah What is Your Profession?

Fuck you! Math is underrrated! Math built this blog and lets chumps like me steal money from marks like you in Vegas.

It may be blasphemous, but I always appreciated MSU's fight song.
That said, I don't think anything comes a close second to The Victors. Maaayyybeee, On Wisconsin.

Basketball. Just my personal preference.

Well, there is an argument to be made for the necessity of WD to post this thread. A google search most definitely would have been more productive. Nobody has addressed his problem. Several posters (predictably) chime in with their personal computer preference, which isn't relative to the post.
I didn't care in this case, since I'd also just updated. But there is the question of why WD feels the need to create this thread, given he creates, you know, a couple thread here and there.

Well, just to offer an opposing piece of anectotal evidence: I love Windows 10.

I upgraded and have had none of the problems you have mentioned. (Sorry if that doesn't help!).
One thing I don't know if I can change is that when you slide the right menu in (on a Surface), instead of a brightness slider, like in Win8.1, there's a brightness button that changes in increments of 25% each time it is touched. I actually like this - it's quick - except the increments don't include 0%. That means I have to actually open settings to bring the brightness down to 0% if I don't have me keyboard connected. Anyone know if that's changable?

Eh, I doubt they'll get used to it any more than rando away kickers. Unless we put a maize poster behind the goalposts in Glick.
|1 week 4 days ago||Ummm... no, they weren't.||
Ummm... no, they weren't. They were white.
|1 week 5 days ago||"Hurrah for the maize and||
EDIT: Ooops.. thought you suggested you SHOULD use 'maize' when singing the alma mater. Still, I have no objections with the casual, occassional use of 'yellow.' Maize is a shade of yellow. An arrogant shade of yellow, I'm told.
The Yellow and Blue is a classic. One of my favorite things is singing the alma mater after a basketball game, win or lose, and the transition into The Victors. That's one of my favorite Michigan traditions.

Touche'. My googles served me poorly. Other than the occassional hat appearance, I dont' remember seeing him speaking of or making M appearances that often - I don't think rando recruit would connect Jeter and Michigan very often.

Maaaybe 6 seconds.
|1 week 6 days ago||I don't think I'm a fan||
I don't think I'm a fan (think... I'll reserve ultimate judgement), because I wouldn't really want the jumpman logo on the uniform.
If the players wear Jumpman cleats and/or gloves, I'm fine with that.
Interesting how many negs (and pos's) I'm getting for sharing an opinion, though. It's not like I shared my opinion in any disrespectful manner.
EDIT: Actually, seeing a photoshop preview, I've changed my mind. It's fine. And the publicity is a huge plus. Jumpman on.
|1 week 6 days ago||I mean, I love Derek Jeter,||
I mean, I love Derek Jeter, but I wouldn't call him of U-M connection (maybe you meant State of Michigan?). Sure, he was offered a scholarship by UM (and probably many other schools), but he never came to Ann Arbor, of course. Other than that and maybe being a fan, I wouldn't count him as a representative of the University.
But, maybe you meant state of michigan. If so, move along, nothing to see here.

OP, i would suggest adding an "[EXCERPT]" tag, or something along those lines, to the title. I skipped over this thread earlier today, thinking it was some rando fluff piece, and just now heard about the excerpt and saw this thread again.

I.... don't think I'm a fan of this.

Now you're on to something... If I eat a lemon over the corse of drinking a jug of sangria, would that count? I think I'll brind a lemon next time I hit Dom's.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I don't even remember making||
I don't even remember making these posts. How WD remembers them is a little worrisome.
To be fair, I never said I'd eat a lemon if JH came without the salary stipulation. My thoughts were that Michigan would never go that high. Didn't consider Harbaugh not taking a top college salary even if he did come back.
Also, to be fair, Harbaugh was a pipedream last September. This was the commonly accepted viewpoint, so I'm not exactly embarrassed by it. I wouldn't be surprised if most of the negs on that post are a result of WD re-posting it.
But, really, who the fuck cares? We're all happy cotton-pickin' M fans and alums and I sure as hell am glad I was wrong on that one.

Cool stuff. Unfortunately I had to click the twitter links and be exposed to the worst people ever: people who tweet at recruits.

What one person thinks "is inherently bad," another person thinks is awesome.
I'm not saying I love this song, but I just find music snobs to be insufferable. Usually, they are deriding some pop song that is the current flavor of the month - songs which are not exactly intended to be Mozart.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I love that any time a||
I love that any time a popular song is mentioned, half the population feels the need to deride "how terrible" it is.
Please go back to your carefully manicured lawn.

Now that is some revisionist history right there.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I'm in the camp that you||
I'm in the camp that you aren't going to get anyone better than DD. He's maybe the best.
However, he hadn't signed an extension and it was August. It was pretty apparent that they were going to part ways. This seems like they are parting ways on less than amicable terms, however it was probably going to happen regardless.
Also, Avila was going to be named GM whenever DD moved on. Avila has mountains of experience and was Dave's right-hand man. He IS uniquely qualified to keep this "reboot" going and I don't expect any sudden drop off.
So, all that said, I'm kind of glad the move was made now. The guy that's running the show for the future gets to make September call-up decisions and start evaluating the future - with his decision making process - immediately.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Al Avila, in his press||
Al Avila, in his press conference, said they have a solid core for the future, including at catcher.... And he clearly was talking about McCann. Al Avila also said in the press conference that Alex is playing - hitting - very poorly.
Al Avila also never wanted to draft Alex Avila.
I don't think we need to worry about nepotism. Al Avila wants to win and he knows his son is a big boy that will land on his feet.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||You're one of the best||
You're one of the best baseball posters on MGoBlog, but I think you're reading waaaay too much into the "we want to win this year" comments.
Those are just platitudes for players and fans, given they were 3 GB. Even in his press conference, Avila said he agreed with the decision to sell.

HS Teacher and coach here.
There is plenty of research that says that students actualy perform better during their sport season than when they are not in-season. The structure and forced time management is a huge help for kids who are learning how to prioritize time and learning how to study efficiently (this is huge in the age of cell phones and social media).
I won't say playing a sport is important for your college resume (as long as you have some other extra curriculars), but playing a sport more often helps academics than hurts.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||My dad played football||
My dad played football growing up. Wrecked his knees; never discouraged us from playing football, but never really encouraged it either.
My brother and I ended up being big-time baseball players (not that we were college or anything, that was just our main sport).
We also played soccer and basketball. Our dad became a big soccer fan, accordingly. Keep an open mind - soccer is a great sport - it's just bad on TV and European players' diving is atrocious.
