|1 day 19 hours ago||gorging on Filipino food||
my wife's family is Filipino. We are heading up to visit them tomorrow for an annual party that the Pinoy community where they live does for the holidays. It's basically a giant potluck of Pinoy food, beer (San Miguel FTW!), and of course Karaoke. Should be a ton of fun.
Aside from that, I have to study for grad school final exam on Wednesday and write a final paper for class Thursday.
Have a good weekend everybody!
|3 days 21 hours ago||Hoops title||
The hoops title is the easy pick for me. I'd only pick the OSU game if your sports Genie revealed the outcome of the upcoming BCS games. If OSU wins it all this year in football then my hatred of OSU would make picking the football game more likely.
Nah, even if OSU wins the BCS title this year, I'd still probably go with the hoops championship. I would've won my pool had Michigan pulled off the upset, instead I had to settle for 2nd place. Plus, national championship would've helped tremendously with recruiting, probably would've helped us do better with some of the guys we lost to KY.

yikes that is a creepy shirt. Good find!
|5 days 16 hours ago||Yes there is||
If we lose to them a 2nd time it'll be nothing but bad press, & I'm sure enough fans will vote w/ their wallets that DB realizes he made a mistake.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Surprising||
I'm not surprised that a football fan killed another over a game. What does surprise me was that the killer & the victim were both women. That's more of what I'd expect out of male fans of football. Sad tragedy. It's just a game, people!
|6 days 1 hour ago||it's my favorite loss||
not sure if that is even possible, as no one likes losing. But as losses go, it's the loss that feels least like a loss to me. I was expecting a slaughter. When it was 35-21 my thought was: "well, I had thought before the game they'd stay close early but OSU would pull away in the 2nd half as the defense gets exhausted, so I was spot on" but then somehow we came back and got back in it, and the game came down to the wire.
Yes, losing sucks, agreed. But as losses go, this is probably the loss I am least ever upset about.
If I were to set aside my fandom, as an outsider you'd probably enjoy watching this game between two teams slugging it out. Someone mentioned it is like Rocky 1, where the underdog goes the distance but loses in the end. That feels right for a description of this game.

but this buzzfeed article had a ton of potential recipes for the holiday mashup
|1 week 3 days ago||Happy Hannukah!||
to all the members of the tribe celebrating it starting tonight. Is anyone doing anything special for Thanksgivukah tomorrow like sweet potato latkes? Pumpkin kugel?
|1 week 3 days ago||Peppers||
no, we can't "demonstrably prove" that fan reaction is behind Peppers' recent decision, but considering the kid himself said that he was looking again because of rumors that Hoke was out the door, fan reaction could be what caused those rumors in the first place.
|1 week 3 days ago||This was not what I expected||
when I clicked on the thread, I had no idea what to expect from the title. This was well done, bravo OP!
|1 week 4 days ago||For a second there||
before I followed the link my brain went: A car dealership giving out free cars? Probably giving them to the OSU players.
|1 week 4 days ago||They don't suck||
however they are grossly overrated and overpriced. Maybe its because I grew up on some great Chicago delis, but I was never seriously impressed with Zingermans when I went there. It's probably considered as good as it is because of the total lack of competition in the area.

FERGODSAKES everyone knows that Corned Beef on Rye is far superior! You should be ashamed of yourself!
|1 week 4 days ago||as a somewhat mad person||
I have twice in the past week told someone to GTFO and to not let the door hit them in the ass on their way out. But both times that was not directed at people not renewing their season tickets, it was directed at people that stated they were giving up on the team altogether until they were good again, stating they were going to sell their UM gear and never watch a game until the team was decent. Those people can GTFO for all I care, and I think that I'm probably in the majority opinion where we don't want fair weather fans of the team.
As to season ticket holders, if you're not going to renew but still go to every game by getting tickets cheaper on the secondary market, and you're just avoiding paying your PSL, then I am okay with that decision. From a budgetary standpoint, that makes a ton of sense. However, If you are giving up your season tickets and stating you're not going to go to the games until the team improves, then you're being fairweather and in that case my GTFO comments stand.
|1 week 4 days ago||No kidding||
At least we are bowl eligible while they are not going to make one this year. Also I lol'd at the Arkansas fans pointing out how Bielema has led them to an unprecedented 8 straight losses, thus keeping his word that he'd show them something they'd never seen before.
|1 week 4 days ago||Good- sell your shirts||
if you're a fairweather Michigan fan then we don't want you supporting the team anyways. So long, farewell, don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.
|1 week 4 days ago||a twitter user named||
a twitter user named @Hall09Hasson. That user seems to be a Michigan fan - his background photo is of Jake Butt's one handed TD vs Northwestern.
|1 week 5 days ago||Good riddance||
fairweather bandwagon fans like you Atroia can take a hike, we don't want you rooting for U of M anyways. Don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

There is no edit feature within the app for iPhone. The only way to edit is to go to the actual website from your phone and do posting from there. From the app itself you cant edit posts. If you can, please enlighten us how to do so.
|1 week 5 days ago||Wish I could make it||
but with Thanksgiving, Hanukkah with both sets of parents (my parents are divorced so I have to celebrate it twice) and my dad's 65th birthday Sunday, I wont be able to make it. Have fun and cheer loud all that are going!

I have aged since the avatar photo was taken, I am now 23 months old. I prepare for the game by drinking apple juice. I motivate my players by throwing my sippy cup at them if they don't make me happy. I call plays by picking up blocks from my favorite block puzzle, the plays will be written on the underside of the piece by my loyal assistant coach/dad.
In positive news, I can now say Michigan, Go Blue, Wolverines, and Ohio Stinks thanks to dedicated positive reinforcement by my loyal assistant coach/dad.
|1 week 6 days ago||I would prefer McGary||
assuming he can stay healthy, I would love to see him with his energy in person on a regular basis. GRIII still needs some more seasoning to develop a bit but if he's decent I'd still love to have him.
|1 week 6 days ago||Silver lining||
for me as a Bulls fan: This should hopefully cost the Bulls a playoff berth, putting them in the draft lotto and giving them a shot at McGary or GRIII in next year's draft. I'd love to have a Bulls jersey with a M player's name on it.

This has been a brutal season for the mods - the mod action sticky is up to 3 pages again already. It had 47 new posts since I last posted in it on Thursday. I feel bad for you guys and thank you for all of your hard work. BiSB, LSA2k, & JustinGoBlue if we ever meet in person first round is on me. I fully support super harsh modding right now.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||Only conditioning this week||
That's nearly all the D should do is just run all week. It's clear the O can't stay on the field long & give the D a rest, so they need to be in super endurance shape for this week or they'll be dead by the 3rd quarter.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||Out of gas||
They are clearly getting gassed, it's not so much that they are giving up, they are just collapsing from exhaustion. No surprise there given how little rest they would get with all the O's 3 & outs
|2 weeks 2 days ago||even as the OP of that thread||
I kind of tend to agree, a lot of the comments have gotten ugly. There's a reason I ran this by LSA2k this morning on Twitter before posting, to give him a heads up in case that happened. It'd probably be too much effort to clean up by deleting the bad posts from the good (and there were some informative and well thought out ones in there). Or, maybe just lock it instead of deleting so it won't get reposted again next week by someone else?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Wow||
I hadn't read the statement from the girl's attorneys yet, if even half of that is true that is explosive, even more so than the DNA stuff. I strongly encourage everyone here to read that link.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||App State||
For me that one hands down. Even if we still got destroyed by Oregon the following week, it'd be nice to not be the first ever ranked team to have lost to a FCS school. The other losses were bad yes, but at least to respectable teams. Losing to App State made us a laughingstock nationally. I'm still mad at DB for scheduling them again.
