Excellent suggestion (and yes I know you've been advocating it for a while) and hope we follow this plan.

But that's where you're wrong - I"ve never complained about being labled a "customer" because I am one. Anytime money changes hands the party giving money is the customer and the party recieving the money is the supplier. Sorry if that bothers you but once they started charging people for entering the stadium we all became customers.
What I objected to was being taken for granted as a customer who they never thought would leave no matter how unleasant the experience or how high the price.

I learned a new word today. Apparently Muggle means "Alumni & general fans of the university who write the checks to pay for your weight rooms, practice facilities, training table, meals, apartment, etc so athletes can attend college for free"
My name is Don and I'm an Muggle.

If it's any consolation I'm getting 502 AND 504 time outs.
Has anyone ever gotten the mythical 506 time out? I think we'll see that unicorn if/when Harbaugh becomes the HC.

Actually Turd that's a GREAT board topic to take our minds off of football and Dave Brandon. Others to consider for the Detroit Mt Rushmore
I'm sure there are a LOT more I'm forgetting but those are the ones off the top of my head.

Did you know Turkey causes cancer? I HATE sweet potatoes. Did the idiot who made this green bean casserole - can they even read? This pumpkin pie takes like absolute shit. And so on.
Yup - lots of fun.

I do agree with that although (and hindsight is always 20-20) I wonder what would've happened if Robinson was still hired but he was allowed to run the defense he was familar with and not the one Rich liked.
Seemed to me that Gerg was reasonably competent at Texas last year. Not world-beater great but competent. Something he was anything but in Ann Arbor.

Lord Grantham, Ghost of Yost and a parade of other now banned personas preceded Baloo. The avatars change but the personality remains which is why this guy is easily the most frequently banned poster on the board.
Maybe it's because I'm older but if I was repeatedly kicked out of a club for being an asshole to other patrons I'd like to think I'd either A: Find another club to frequent or B: Change how I interact with others.
Not this guy-he thinks the way to handle the problem is to just find different disguises so he can fool the bouncers and get back inside for a little while.

You're omitting one very important salary in your analysis - Casteel's. It doesn't matter what the average is nationally - NOBODY is going to take a pay cut and then move their family to take a lateral position. Nobody.

Wow five losses. You really think the wheels are just about to come off the wagon.
You've got them almost (but not quite) as shitty as us.

So you've got him losing three more games. Here's the balance of their schedule - show me the three losses you project
PAC12 Championship Game
I think they'll lose this weekend but they wont play in the Championship Game if they do so curious where you have three more loses. I've got them going to go 11-2.

Well said. I am one of the biggest RR supporters on the board and definitely yearn for the missing 4th year of his tenure provided we brought Casteel over like they did in Arizona BUT I think you've done a good job of summarizing why he was fired here.
Upvoted for logic.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Boy reading those tweets||
Boy reading those tweets you'd almost think there were people with influence inside the athletic department with selfish agendas that have nothing to do with the team. You might assume those same individuals are more committed to seeing their personal requirements met (manball) rather than seeing the team do what it takes to win.
Look the more Rich wins and the more we suck it becomes harder and harder for the hard core haters (looking at you Lord Baloo) to claim the problem was Rich and not us.
But they'll still try.
|1 day 6 hours ago||None taken but just to be||
None taken but just to be clear I was referring our Head Coach Brady Hoke and not the Athletic Director. I dont think Hoke has the first idea on how to run an effective offense and I see his meat hooks all over the game plan and player selection.
|1 day 7 hours ago||I cant help but wonder why||
I cant help but wonder why our offensive coaching staff suddenly became such poor evaluators of players ability. Perhaps Borges and now Nuss fooled everybody at all their other coaching stops or maybe their's another voice in the room when it comes to deciding who plays and who doesnt.
It sure seems to me that somebody without a clue about running an offense is making important decisions.

I'll say one thing about the board. When we latch our teeth into a meme (Cork Cousins, selling jersey's in Ohio, Weeeellllll, ect) and now aware but not fully aware, we beat the everloving shit out of the joke until it's dead.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Funk's next job||
Tell you what - if and when Hoke and crew get taken out of their current roles each and every one has a job with me if they want it. I've spent virtually my entire adult life either selling stuff or managing people to sell stuff and say you want about their ability to coach - THOSE DUDES ARE CLOSERS!
I mean it's easy to sell kids on going to Michigan when the team is good and the players are obviously getting better each year. But those cats are selling Michigan and the team sucks and just about everybody seems to regress in their development. Now that's a salesman who can make that deal a reality.
These guys are just in the wrong line of work.

I didnt like it either. I read her words exactly like you did "Hey this blogger published some shit on Brandon that if true, and we really have NO way of knowing if it is true or not, looks kinda bad. But it might not be true. Might be total bullshit - no way for us to know."
Looked to me like they were trying to cover their asses just in case Brandon survives and they have to deal with him in the future.

"This caused a maelstrom of recriminations for Wolverine Devotee, whose only crime is purchasing Michigan alternate jerseys."
One of the things lost in the whole WD kerfuffle IMO was Brandon losing him as a supporter. By all rights WD is the poster child for everything DB holds dear and seemingly wants from his fanbase and yet, in the end, WD left the world of alternate jersey's, piped in music and wow experiences to join the opposition.
Think about that for a minute. If Brandon doesnt have the Wolverinee Devotee's of the world on his side - who does he have?
Oh I forgot - coaches afraid for their job. He's still got them.
