I don't understand people who get upset with the whole "us" thing. As an alumnus, I do consider myself part of UofM forever. I spent hours of life in the stands and tons of tuition dollars that helped support the team. Why can't I be considered a part?

I'm confused. So what was her job? Was she helping athletes or students? Makes it sound like she's a super counsellor or something. Makes me wish I had met her while I was there
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Your answer||
Umm not every channel I get comes in HD. There are some channels that don't offer HD or my package doesn't carry the HD option. Or if I'm watching something from a DVD that's not HD.

Let's hope its the year he finally has a breakout performance!

The pattern reminds me of a golfers kit. But, eh, they're gloves, I couldn't care less as long as they work.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||My experience...||
If your on an extreme budget, go with VIZIO. But only as a last resort. If you can find a sale or have the extra money.... go with SONY
If you have channels that aren't in HD, I'd NOT recommend VIZIO. HD channels come in perfect and awesome, but anything that isn't HD comes in pixellated or fuzzy. I'd also have to point out that a lot of peripherals (DVD player, PS3) come in really softly. I have to boost my volume to 100 just to hear it.
My other TV is a SONY that I adopted through marriage. It's been a champ and I highly recommend it. Combine that with a Sony HT-CT770 2.1 Channel Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer (or equivalent), and it's been an awesome purchase. Found this one by testing all the sound bars at the local best buy. This one gave the richest sound... while the others sounded hollow or tin-ey.

Not* paying attention. Sorry can't edit on phone.

Ha. Serves me right for thinking the NBA is garbage and paying attention to any of it (including nicknames). Angry diatribe retracted.

I know you're trying to be funny, but making fun of someone's appearance is not cool in my books. Grow up

Man card. Turn it in.

Currently under a thunderstorm warning and tornado watch. Not getting me outside. Looking at the weather/cloud map, you'll have to be north of Houghton Lake to get a good view.

|6 weeks 4 days ago||No, it's a home game||
Definitely not. Both OSU and Oregon come to Michigan and Michigan State that weekend, respectively.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||If you listen to the full||
If you listen to the full routine here: http://therantisdue.com/90725 he continues asking who Iowa fans hate. Apparently OSU more than Michigan. In fact, just one guy really hates Michigan. Start at about 20:45.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Bad team and bad SCHEDULE||
Not sure if this was mentined yet, but we did have well, one of the WORST home schedules you can have in a single season. OSU, ND, and MSU were away. Our "best" home game was against Penn State.
That had more to do with the attendance record than anything. Switch any one of those games to "home" and we still have the record.
|7 weeks 18 hours ago||"No one is gonna get hurt"...||
"No one is gonna get hurt"... really? why? b/c they're women? That seems to be what you're implying. So if two dudes were brawling it out, would it be, 'na man, let them fight it out'
Get real. These women were throwing punches. And there was a child involved. A child! He threw something at the one woman's face. Who knows how much this could have escalated. The man taking this video should have put down the cameria immediately and helped try to break it off. Or at least go get security.

This was posted on twitter yesterday that it was from the PA camp where >1000 kids showed up.

But this means Galloway won't be a color commentator for OUR games. I see this as a win.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Nevermind. Clicked link and||
Nevermind. Clicked link and read "Other fish like tuna can warm specific body parts, boosting performance at key times, but whole-body "endothermy" has not been observed in a fish before." Touché Internet.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Why do they insist this is||
Why do they insist this is the first? It's already been reported that the blue fin tuna is "warm blooded". Not to mention some sharks, but they aren't fish.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Utopia; a MMORPG since 1998||
It's a gamer's addiction I can't break.
I've been playing this game on and off since 2003. It's one of the oldest-running online browser games. It features a hardcore strategy gameplay on building and managing a kingdom set in a fantasy world. And it's especially number crazy, like deciding what race and personality to play and how best to take advantage of each individual's attributes.
Sadly it's numbers which used to be 40k or so near it's height is down to only about 4k. Lots of long-time vets playing with a few new players here and there. The game used to be unplayable unless you downloaded a third party software to analyze your builds and attack #'s. Now thought, they incorporated a lot of that into the game itself. Much more playable now for casual gamers, but still takes a lot of coordination to do well as a team.
Game can be found here:
Forums are currently down at the moment (not sure why) but likely due to a new "age" starting. By age, the game resets every 3 months to a different age. It's on Age 65 now.

The optimism and excitement that Harbaugh has brought shows no signs of stopping. Last year, HTTV took till the final couple days to reach 100%. .... Amazing.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Response to both above posters||
I have no sympathy for GRRM. "Writing is hard", rubbish. He has explicitly said the reason he hasn't finished the book is because he can't write while traveling. So it's been 4-5 years now and because he's famous, all he does is travel. That's a long vacation. Nobody needs that much time off.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||When did OSU and Utah||
When did OSU and Utah constitute top Pac12 competition? Middle of the pack at best. And I'm not blowing smoke, as I follow the Beavers as my 2nd team.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||I was thinking more like this...||
Someone say recruits come in pairs?
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Redshirt||
Maybe this will allow either Malzone or Morris to redshirt like all QBs should.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Using your parents cable||
Using your parents cable account to use watch ESPN does not count as cutting the cable. Someone is still paying $100/mo for that.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||My guess is he would see||
My guess is he would see little time on field this year as a LB. So why not get some help at TE. He can always go back to LB next year if we really lack for bodies there. I'm fine with it. In JH I trust.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Definitely a smart decision,||
Definitely a smart decision, yet as he said an emotional one. Gets his degree and the program-tied benefits that exist with that. Gets to play in another system, get some starting experience, and get a 2nd degree.
If you read this Russell, thanks for all the hard work you put into the program. We thank you for it.
