I can't wait until this season is over.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||These uniforms - Woof||
My buddy just texted me with the accurate description: "Looks like we're wearing our pants below our ass with maize boxers."
Why don't we go back to the Fab Five or the Glen Rice era jerseys?
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Rich parents||
Rich parents really aren't relevant, this is something that would likely be covered by the fraternity's insurance policies.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Oh||
To be clear, I have no skin in the Devotee game, but that kind of behavior is rampant on this thread.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||You mean||
You mean like 80% of the people on this thread are doing re: Adam Weiss?
|10 weeks 2 days ago||?||
High horse? It's unseemly and, maybe more relevant for discussion purposes here, adds absolutely nothing of value to the board. People come here to read about and discuss Michigan sports, not read some sophomoric flame war about some college kid presumably none of these posters have ever even met.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Great idea||
I'm sure Brian would prefer to just jettison members of the MGoCommunity of 6+ years over engaging in a discussion about what makes for appropriate topics of discussion on the board. If you have a reason why you think personally attacking college kids is justified when objecting to a doomed "pump up song", I'm all ears. However, as that would require some sort of thought on your part, or a comment longer than 15 words, I'm sure I won't be provided with that.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Calm down||
Jesus, the comments to this thread are pathetic. This is obviously a terrible idea, but the people posting personal potshots at this college kid - or even worse, the attractiveness of college women who happen to be in photos with him - need to gain some perspective and grow up.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Pizza||
Pizza is overrated.
The burger is king.
This may be more unpopular where I live - North Jersey/Metro-NYC - than in the midwest, but still fairly certain it's wildly unpopular.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I enjoyed||
I enjoyed "The Last Action Hero."
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Uhhhh||
This response seems odd to me. I mean, feel free to kill the message but shooting the messenger - a college sophomore - all the while standing on our high horses about how to treat recruits on Twitter, etc., seems a little hypocritical and unseemly to me. Is anyone actually concerned that some song that is created by artists that will definitely sound old, lame and passe in 15 years is going to supplant The Victors or even be remembered 20 years from now? Yeesh.
|12 weeks 18 hours ago||The campaign||
The campaign isn't intended to shield you from ever hearing those words/phrases, it's intending to educate you abou what others may deem offensive so that you can avoid doing so yourself. Even from a pure educational and preparing for the future standpoint, people should probably learn to not use these words or phrases anyway. I was in a deposition last week where an attorney casually threw the word "retarded" around a handful of times and everyone else's reaction was just to awkwardly cringe each time.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Well||
Those pros you listed have been pros in recruiting since time immortal for UCLA. Also, we didn't have Jim Harbaugh before either. Hasn't really prevented our program from - at times at least - being a national powerhouse and getting in the players we needed. I wouldn't fret.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Steve Williams, is that you?||
You may be the first person, other than Steve Williams himself, to seriously suggest that Tiger Woods' success/downfall has something to do with Steve Williams leaving his bag.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||True||
True, though how is thats problem at Michigan? That is true across American (and most other) society. If anything, I'd honestly presume that Michigan is less focused on this issue and showy about status/wealth than other colleges (the Harvards, Hobarts, etc. in the Northeast are MUCH more focused on that).
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Don't know||
Don't know, but the title of it was.... wait for it...
"Saved by the Smell."
... because it involves a "Dirty Sanchez."
I'll turn out the lights on my way out.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||First Amendment||
First Amendment would not be the reason. Has nothing to do with a Dad shushing some kids.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Probably Greg Jackson||
I was on a flight with Greg Jackson yesterday from Detroit to Newark which landed in the afternoon. I'm guessing he's the new contact for him.
|18 weeks 6 days ago||Apparently||
Apparently I have too, at the Department of Redundancy Department.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Not according to the WNEM||
Not according to the journalistic juggernauts at WNEM!
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Genuinely don't know||
Perhaps my memory is bad - is that Ace Williams' outfit or something? I have not put any stock into the report, yet. If they're bogus I'm willing to disregard.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Chatsports?||
No idea what this source is but, for what it's worth:
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Poor Title||
Better title: "Harbaugh Won't Deny He Is Done with the NFL and Michigan is His Dream Job."
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Wait||
Is there where we're all going to discuss the new 6 year, $49 million rumor? Has no one yet posted a thread on that in order to avoid a jinx? We've just had threads discussing Jim Tressel and Jim Harbaugh to Cuba and yet... nothing?
|20 weeks 3 days ago||Also, fleeting four years?||
Did this guy, whose employer is in the midst of wooing former alum Jim Harbaugh with piles upon piles of money, really just claim that the players have fleeting four year relationships? If you honestly believe that, I think everyone with a say in your current coaching search may have a bone to pick with you.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||Poor word choice as well||
Most of us disagree with the point he's making, and that's fine, but he probably escapes this whole situation unscathed if he more carefully chooses his words and says "not any one particular player" instead of specifically naming Michigan's beloved son Denard. Definitely suffering from an acute case of Dave-Brandon-foot-in-mouth disease.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Careful with your word choice.||
To call her story "fabricated" is improper at this point. All that's been demonstrated is that many of the details of her story are likely inaccurate. However, even those who questioned her version of events acknowledged that they believed something had happened to her. The discrepencies could merely be owed to PTSD or the result of an intoxicant. She could also be making it up. But you or I don't know the answer at this point, and this "new" information doesn't answer that either.
Be careful with your word choice.
Also, this is inevitably going to get pulled.
|21 weeks 16 hours ago||Hard to argue.||
Hard to make an argument to the contrary on any of these with the exception of maybe La. Tech, UNC or Tennessee. Frankly, I'm shocked that Penn State is only getting 2.5 against BC.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Yes||
Yes, let's extrapolate from one Landlord's attempt to collect $196 a general principle about the "class" of an entire state.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||I'm sorry.||
I am as obsessed with Michigan football as everybody else on this board, but if President Schlissel doesn't fire Dave Brandon because he sent some snarky e-mails to people (half of whom were being snarky themselves) that is not a good reason to fire the University president. I have far too much respect for the University as an academic institution to ever make that leap. Do you know how absurd that would make the school look? We'd be no better than Florida State, whose football team clearly runs the show at their school, greatly hindering their academic perception across the country.
Sorry, I'm as frustrated as you are, and am not exactly confident in Schlissel's ability to handle this football situation, but if he was hired to make Michigan the best school it can be, I'm not jeopardizing the integrity, academic reputation of the school and overall health of the university by calling for his head after 2 months on the job because the Athletic Director might send e-mails like a petulant teenage girl occasionally.
