Huge miss there. Great look though.

Actually the first thing I thought of when I read his post was this really annoying militant feminist that lived in my dorm frosh year.
|5 days 11 hours ago||My beef||
Is that there are multiple world religions that stiffle progress, freedom and general human rights. You clearly have a political problem with Christians b/c of the influence they have in the US (IMO from where you are sitting it is not unwarranted). My point is that in the broader context, there are people in the world (many times women b/c of the way things are) that could be contributing scientifically that cannot, b/c of the religious laws that bind them. It's unfortunatey that you don't have a problem with these people as well.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Newton?||
You can argue how religious Newton was or wasn't, but the universities that supported him were most definitely religious at that time. Many of his theories started while on scholarship at Trinity College. A lot of what SC said was wrong, but to ignore the fact that religious institutions funded and supported some of the most important scientific progress is short sighted.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Hmm||
"The only people attacking are Christians"
You also used the word "are", which definitely doesn't imply pre-modern age. I'm not saying the Christian Church's past or present is steller, but they are not the only group (religous or otherwise) that is inhibiting free thought. For you to not recognize that, especially as an educator, is doing a disservice to the cause you claim to serve.
|5 days 12 hours ago||I get his point||
I think you're misunderstanding his point. You said:
"who funded Newton, for example? Or Einstein? Usually Universities who were willing to hire them. Not religious institutions so much."
Back in the time of Newton, universities usually were religious institutions. Still not sure you can put a number on it like 51% was from religious affilitation, but his point does have some merrit.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Not weighing in one way or another||
...but that is a very dangerous statement to say b/c 97% of studies or people agree that there is no debate, or that it is a fact b/c of popular opinion. This in the thread that is about a show that discussed the plight of Giordano Bruno...
Also, the poster above brought up the actual quantitative effect of said warming, which there is no major consensus on.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Are you serious?||
You need to take a lap around the religious hallway and critically look at how other major religions treat science and progress.

*Most Academic Science
To assert that the public sector is as productive scientifically as the private sector is a huge assumption. Not all scientific development can be measured in publications and impact factor.

My major criticism of the way he coached the Championship game last year was that he didn't blow a gasket and let Ricky P walk all over the refs.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Good Man||
Mgoblog's finest will look at the advanced stats and measure his life in terms of wins and losses or dollars and cents. The reality is just b/c something doesn't show up on a stat sheet doesn't mean it isn't important. WCF treated people the right way, and that matters. As other posters have said his lagecy might be tainted b/c of the lack of Lion's success, but he should be remembered as a true gentlemen and a man that treated people well regardless of what they could do for him.

I like Woodson more than Jalen. Just saying.

Spike in the background cracks me up for some reason.

Beilein's squad pwns n00bs.

What other team had secured b10 champs?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I hope he moves on||
As great of a job as he is doing I hope he moves on to a head coaching job and has success. Building a Beilein tree would be great. Much better than 'coach in waiting' would be him proving himself then coming back.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||He's white||
Didn't you get the memo? He's white so it's funny. But seriously, you're not alone, I find it offensive as we'll.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed||
I think the big lesson here is never to escalate a situation from verbal to physical. Something about sticks and stones.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Audio||
So TT doctored the tape? If true, that would actually be something in this story to get upset about.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Piece of....||
I think you'd have to get pretty creative (to stick with the narrative that many so desperately want) to find a way to end 'piece of...' so that it is a racial slur. I'm sure someone will come up with something for that group to cling to though.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Racial slur?||
Is there any actual evidence of this? Or are we just going with it bc a black athlete pushed a white fan?
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Beat ohio||
This topic is relevant to my interests.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||'If true'||
Read my post again. Also why assume Smart wouldn't lie? I wouldn't assume either way, but as it stands it's a bad look for Smart.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Ugh||
Lying about being called a racial slur in order to avoid taking full responsibility for your actions is pretty bad. If true.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Man||
I like their schedule a bit more. That being said, getting the head-to-head at home is huge. Win that one and at least a share of the title looks pretty good.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Use your words||
In general, I think the escalation from verbal to physical is typically unacceptable. This is independent of player vs fan, or whatever the situation is. I think you're ignoring that fact. Smart wasn't "retaliating" some physical assault.
Again, not saying it's OK for fans to act like complete assholes. I know that is the straw-man that is being set up to respond to anything remotely negative toward Smart.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Not OK behavior for fan||
Again it is NOT OK for fans to verbally assault players. The reason you can't have players attacking fans is for everyone's safety. You've got a few thousand people who are all charged up, alcohol involved in some, who are all rooting for the same cause (home team). And visiting player shoves a fan on your side and things can get out of control. The last thing you want is a couple hundred idiots that think they're justified in going after an opposing player b/c he came into the stands.
Both Smart and the fan are lucky things didn't get out of hand. That being said, Smart has a lot more to lose.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
I think that would be a fair punishment for both parties involved.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Fair example||
I think it is more constructive to think of it the other way though. If a buckeye ended up in the crowd at Michigan and there was taunting and insults and maybe even a racial slur thrown, how would we characterize the buckeye after he shoved an M fan?
