|20 weeks 6 days ago||My thoughts exactly||
My first reaction to reading this story was "So what?" The NCAA doesn't need to live up to legal standards of evidence. They obviously didn't in previous cases (PSU, USC). Not sure why they suddenly need to start now.
I'm not saying this investigation, and especially the NCAA, don't have other major issues, but this seems like a non-issue.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||The draft||
Yeah, that's been working out well for the Lions pretty well for the last 40-50 years.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||This is terrible.||
That poor grammar is NOT ACCEPTABLE at Michigan.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||How does free agency work?||
All the good players would go to 1 team or a couple of good teams. All of the other teams would have no chance.
What about when a player gets injured? What do they get paid?

I'm no Shredder, but I had to try.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||My dogs||
We have 3 dogs: Hailey, Bo, and Lloyd.
Hailey is a retreiver/chow mix. She is old and crochety.
Bo is a rott/chow mix. She is the best dog ever. Her only flaw is that she sometimes barks/snaps at strangers.
Lloyd is a great dane. Still a puppy, so we're not entirely sure of her personality.
We plan to keep up this trend with our future pets. Yes, they're all girls, and we gave them boy names. We couldn't think of any Michigan related girl names that actually sounded good.

How do you know Tiger doesn't have a weakness for clay as well? I'd like to see how his game changes on a clay golf course.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Agree||
Most people don't know what college football will really be like once a playoff is instituted. I don't either, but I think that it won't be the rosy picture that most paint it to be. And once you go playoff you can't go back.
I also agree with steelymax and st barth. So what if we don't get a "true" national champion? Some years nobody deserves that title. Some years multiple teams might.
Anti-playoff proponents of the world unite!!!!
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Big East||
Don't think they could pull ND.
If ND were going to join a conference, then I think the Big Ten would be their best fit. More rivalries, better revenue, etc.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Right||
I think we can get the Big Ten officials to ignore the benefits (increased revenue from a title game, larger footprint, etc) in favor of a game that has only lived up to it's billing once in the last several years.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||How about:||
The Speed Conference? (so we could compete with the SEC)
The Bigger Than You Conference? (if we add more than 1 team we can become the largest conference in the country)
The Bad at Counting Conference? (this may clash with our academic standards)
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Better names||
I know someone on the board can come up with better names.
My suggestions from the simalar topic on the board:
The Extra Large Dozen?
The Bigger Than You 12?
The Big Ten Plus Still Larger Than Average 2?
|3 years 26 weeks ago||New Name?||
The Extra Large Dozen?
The Bigger Than You 12?
The Big Ten Plus Still Larger Than Average 2
|3 years 26 weeks ago||New name?||
Will the conference finally change the name?
Or will it still be the Big Ten? And if so, how will it incorporate a 12 into the logo like it incorporated an 11 before?
|3 years 26 weeks ago||I think you got it backwards||
I want 21 5-stars and 7 4-stars.
Or maybe 4 7-stars and 5-21 stars?
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Ok||
I appreciate the well reasoned response, and now understand where you're coming from better.
+1, and hopefully this will make you laugh: "farting boner"

First, a comment about your post:
As stated in many comments above, people ask for links so they can judge the accuracy of statements for themselves. Knowing what the opinions are based on allows a person to form their own opions. This is a better system than just accepting or rejecting the opinion for no reason.
Second, a comment about your posting style:
You seem to rub a lot of people on the board the wrong way. I believe this is for a couple reasons.
1. You try to be too funny, and you're not as funny as you think you are. For example, using "axe" for "ask" is not funny or clever, it's just annoying. You also use absurd "examples" as an attempt at humor. For example, your Rich Rod giving Sentreal Henderson $500 quote in the OP. Occasionally something like this is funny. However, you take it to extreme, and do it too often, and usually it ends up being annoying.
2. When you're not failing at being funny, you're being purposely annoying. You seem to enjoy the negative attention. If it is true that you are/were KOB, then that's even more support fot this statement.
Is it really that hard to just write a simple post? In this case, you could have just written "I don't believe that every opinion post needs to be backed up with a link. Some things are truly just opinion, and I feel that asking for links has gotten out of hand." People could then agree or disagree with that statement, instead of focusing on you personally.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Trying too hard||
I think you're trying just a little too hard to be funny. A little less rambling and a couple fewer obscure references and you might have it.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Really?||
The players should have NO say in a decision about where they will have to go and where they will have to play?
I agree they shouldn't be the only voice in the decision, but their opinions should at least be considered.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Best Diary (humorous)||
I had problems creating that diary. For some reason it wouldn't accept the "Treehugger - Forcier/Barkley Chat Room" and kept leaving that out as a choice.
And it apparently left some choices off of other polls as well.
Damn, this is not going well.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||OK||
I fixed the poll links at least.
Sorry for the initial problems. I'm trying to do this all during lunch at work.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Damnit!||
Why are the links not links?
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Any suggestions?||
That thought crossed my mind, but I'm not familiar with setting up online polls. The (limited) research I did, I didn't notice how to not show results. Maybe I should play around with some sites, and see what I can set up. Any suggestions on sites?
|3 years 28 weeks ago||One more thing||
King of Belch was nominated as comback poster of the year.
Considering that he has now been banned, should he be disqualified?
I'm leaning toward yes, unless someone can convince me otherwise.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Not abnormal post||
That post didn't seem much worse/different than most of the things he posted. I guess it was just the straw that broke the camel's back.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Is he a slot?||
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Just read the article||
It says that Winston and Jenrette were "suspended." To me suspended is different than kicked off the team. Is it true that they were only suspended? Or did the writer just assume that it's the same thing?
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Maybe||
Maybe Rodriguez reminds him of a dolphin?
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Also||
Quinton Washington who is currently on the team.
