"Part of the game" shouldn't involve blatant dismissals of clear reality. In the last World Cup, there was a goal scored and the officials didn't notice. There's no replay, so now a team very obviously earned a point and the game loses meaning. Why even play the game if that kind of mistake is going to determine the outcome? Imperfection is not the same as anarchy, and it shouldn't be mistaken for such.

And then shit like the Tennessee game happens.

The endless public pessimism is nauseating. I get that people feel down about M sports, but do you really have to repeatedly chant "ALL IS LOST" until the world ends?

Between massblue's disaster threads and your inability to use paragraph breaks or anything remotely close to concise diction, the board is quickly becoming a clown show.

The justice system apparently fucked up, the university fucked up, the university then attempted to CORRECT its fuckup and continued to fuck up in the process, and now it's Hoke's fault for not blasting pixie dust over everything.
I would very much like to see justice served, but arbitrarily disseminating guilt and culpability isn't the way to accomplish this.
I just really don't see how Hoke is anything but a tangential part of this story. Notice how there doesn't appear to be any attempt to track down the stream of information within the athletic department. Clearly such an attempt would likely be rebutted, but it would make the investigation look better.
|1 day 12 hours ago||That last part||
is why I don't understand vilifying Hoke as if he committed the assault himself. It's extremely obvious, at least to me, that he was told exactly what he could or could not disclose. So he ad-libbed poorly. I have a very, very, VERY hard time believing anyone going nuts on here would be any happier with "no comment" or anything other than blatant disclosure of all the facts, which we were never going to get at that point.

We have a glut of fans who think a recruit killed their dog when they don't immediately commit or give Michigan media blowjobs.
Damien Harris doesn't owe any of us shit, and if you get emotional over recruiting to the point where you start cursing teenagers, then you're a creepy sad fuck who needs to do other things with their time.

If Johnny Manziel or Teddy Bridgewater or Brett Hundley came back for another year, they could also be challenged. But people would lose their shit if there was any public "controversy" because it's rather preposterous to consider any of them losing their spot.
Not to say that Gardner is quite on the level of those guys (although his ceiling is in the area), but the only reason this topic merits any discussion is because journalists love clickbait and we have stupid people.

And it's becoming more and more obvious that our parents and grandparents are both massively misinformed about statistics and frequency of events and even just the nature of the times in which they lived AND they romanticize those times like crazy.
Yes, school incidents were just as common 40-50 years ago per capita. Mass shootings perhaps weren't as common for a number of reasons, but Grandpa Cletus is wrong in almost every way when he says the '50s were the "good old days."

There are trolls who make more constructive comments than you. I roll my eyes when Snoopy pops up in the thread.

You're completely wrong, and so are the folks from the Greatest Generation who think that.
The only difference is the media. The things happening today STILL HAPPENED, just with far less media coverage because it didn't exist.
How many, exactly? Get over yourself.

So now instead of stabbings, you have at least one teenage fatality, probably more from stray gunfire. So much better.

Bullies are cowards who present an aggressive front to cover up a gooey, weak interior. I suffered from bullying well into high school. I was told repeatedly by authority figures that it would stop if I just ignored the bullies and/or "used my words."
That doesn't work, because that kind of passive, pathetic response just reinforces the power trip the bully craves. You stop a bully by hitting them in the mouth.
Of course, that response isn't always great, either, as this case indicates. The bullied will always eventually snap, and that's why they can't be left to fend for themselves in such an environment.

The second part is much more impressive. As a National Merit Scholar, I can confirm that Oklahoma offers full rides almost automatically to us. So do schools like Arizona State. My mailbox was jammed with full scholarship offers (mostly from schools that don't hold a candle to Michigan) within a week after the NMS winners were announced. So it's not quite so surprising when they have a bunch.

I don't like most of what you post, but this is especially terrible. What's wrong with you? Last season, even after OSU, there was a very vocal band of users making all sorts of "BENCH GARDNER" noise, some of which tiptoed the banhammer line, IMO.
And then some crap news articles with "QB Controversy" in the headlines get published just a couple of months ago. Do you really expect that to go un-fisked?
Finally, shut up. There's no "love affair" with Gardner. He had a fantastic statistical season in 2013 even with a tire fire of an offensive line. You are EXACTLY the kind of person highlighted in the comments who think the best QB is on the bench.
I don't know how any sane person, let alone someone like you who's always on this blog, can say something so utterly stupid. I mean, this is just making shit up at this point.

This is precisely why the law doesn't actually matter. These situations have nothing to do with legality or morality. The rule is the rule, and while you can work to change it, you don't get to complain when you blatantly disregard it and get hit with the consequences.

The point of Fort Schembechler isn't to goad us all into playing Marlowe. It's to get us to fuck off, but because we're rabid fans, that doesn't satisfy us.

It's pretty clear that everyone was rotating with everyone, at least for the most part. Some units like the D-line ran with similar groups, but unless there are clear penciled-in returning starters, this happens most springs.

Then home to Oberon (found a place in upstate NY with a mountain of it) and spending the weekend looking for ways to get the hell out of this craphole.

You hope Jeremy Clark wins the safety job "with ease?" No offense to Clark, but I'd be concerned if Thomas didn't lock down that spot.
