Not that what I think matters in the least but I never had a problem with MWolverine and I was frequently the target of his barbs. I respected his feedback and comments because, at least when directed at me, they were grounded in fact and never felt mean-spirited or hurtful.

Maybe it's just me but Ilike the posters who disagree with me on issues like Borges, season tickets, ect probably most of all. I've been called out by Brown Bear, Mogodog, the Last Hoke and few others, in a nice way, and it made me rethink my position on a few issues and tone down the emotion on others.
I think most people here present contrarian opnions respectfully. Obviously there are always exceptions but even people I've been most at odds with at some point we've reconciled and moved forward.
Sorry it came to this for Brian but I'm sure he and the staff have gotten the ugly end of the internet far more frequently than I ever have and as I've said since the day I joined the site - Brian's blog-Brian's rules.

The US got screwed by an international governing sports body known for corruption.

Is it any wonder that the PAC 10 is pushing the SEC for conference reputation these days? Look at the coaches they hire when there are openings and compare that to the B1G. We seem to go to the hottest MAC coach available instead of opening our B1G network funded checkbooks and hiring the Chris Peterson's of the coaching world.
With the exception of Ohio State and maybe PSU the B1G generally goes "on the cheap" when it comes to replacing coaches and it shows.

How about those matchup take place between evenly matched teams and not ALWAYS where they have the advantadge of playing against a lower ranked team? They stack the deck not on regarding location of games but also who plays who.

100% agree although you'll never hear any ESPN talking heads admidt it. They just want all of us to believe that the greatness of the SEC just rubbed off on both Missouri & Texas AM majically.

Who thought it was going to end this year? This year we had three marque home games and were projected by many to contend for the B1G title.
Next year is the year I have heard/read that attendence might take a hit due to the crapola home schedule and growing fan disatisfaction with our mediocre record over the past several years.

Union rules for breaks and what not slowed the project down some.

Wow is this post bad. You should've written:

|2 days 16 hours ago||We talk about the 95 & 96||
We talk about the 95 & 96 games around here mostly as evidence of a crappy Michigan team (so to speak) being able to beat a good OSU team. And the 69 game is remembered as the launching pad for the Bo era. Would a victory in year three of Hoke's regime be remembered 45 years from now so fondly? Only time (and revisonist history) will tell.
But I'll bet the 89 Baskeball team gets more national attention than those three Michigan football teams. Cause it won it all.
But I understand your point.

8-4 season my friend.

I can think of 27 reasons why it IS on Senor Borges.

So the question is would I rather win the National Championship in basketball or go 8-4 in football.
You know - this one was kinda hard but I think I'm going with the National Championship here. As zesty as 8-4 sounds, my heart says go with the National Championship.
But 8-4 is tough to turn down I agree. It's WAY better than our crummy 7-5 record that's for sure.

"Total lack of desire?" Those are VERY strong and negative words to be using for any athlete, much less one of our own. Unless you have something more substantive than your opinion from watching on TV I think this post needs to come down.

I might pay for it myself if I can get cool naming rights like they do with stadiums. I can see it now...the mGrowOld voter moderation button.

I absolutely guarentee you that if there was a kick-starter campaign to pay for the programming to return voter moderation it would get completely funded within 24 hours of launch.

I'm pretty sure Reader 71's post is a tongue in cheek jab at all the rendering of garments and gnashing of teeth around here everytime Mr Dave Brandon does such a thing.

I think this was on the board yesterday. And yesterday it was worthy of ALL CAPS and lots and lots of exlamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You must not be as excited over the signing as yesterday's poster was.

OSU and I want them to win the MNC. I'm sick to death of hearing about how the SEC is the only league playing real football and I want to restore some of the B1G lost lusture. If it takes OSU to do that, I'm ok with that.
And I hope MSU wins the Rose Bowl and every B1G team wins their respective bowl game. Sorry, when we're 7-5 I'm rooting B1G first and foremost.

I have to say that while I disagree strongly with Space, Reader71, Reship1, The Last Hoke, Bododog (I think I got that one wrong) and Sten regarding Borges I have to admidt you guys are amoung my favorite posters on the board right now.
I really like all of your posts and respect the hell out of your arguements for Borges while I disagree with your conclusions. That to me is what makes this board fantastic - spirited debate with people of like mind but different viewpoints.

Is Heiko's really gone? How the Hell did I miss that announcement? I give that guy SO much credit for having both the brains to understand what was going on and the huge balls to ask questions nobody else had the stones to ask. I would literally skim pressers looking for his questions cause they were usually the only ones that made any sense and required the coach to actually think about the response and not give some bullshit canned response.

I would do anything for an MNC.....
But I won't do that.

I've heard tell of other alumni on the board who've made a similar decision to not renew. A couple of them got roundly chastized by others for talking about it all the time so they don't mention it anymore but trust me - they're with you.
|3 days 19 hours ago||What a great analogy. But||
What a great analogy. But like a lot of resturants that used to be great at one time but no longer are, it's living on its reputation for greatness instead of the actual product. You see it all the time in the food industry - a once great resturant living solely on what it used to be.
Making matters worse for this customer at least, is that the owner (Hoke) keeps telling me his head chef Borges is wonderful and whips up the most AMAZING dishes (like ND & OSU) but for me, every third meal is unedible (PSU, Iowa, Nebraska, MSU, etc) so I'm having a hard time justifying his 5 star prices based on his past glory.

Isnt that exactly the point of a hypothetical? To propose something that didnt happen so you can discuss the "what if"?
Of course it didnt happen and my point, perhaps poorly stated, was not that ALL Michigan fans would support such a thing if he did it. My point was that I believe the majority of fans would as they would see it as an act of defiance to a crowd (OSU's) we dont like very much.
I have no way of knowing if this would acually happen though. Just a guess.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Exactly right. And for those||
Exactly right. And for those that think if Miller leaves OSU is going to take a big step backward I invite them to watch the Cal-OSU game or any of the others where he got significant playing time.
That dude is good. VERY good.
