Yeah, that was awesome.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||The lack of taste was a huge||
The lack of taste was a huge issue. But it seems that DB left with no friends because he treated just about everyone as badly as he could get away with (and often he didn't get away with it--see those emails). That adds up to some species of bad person--surely something less than a parricide or rapist, but whether you'd say "piece of shit" or "asshole" is just splitting hairs.

His Philippics, I'd say.

You think a guy pulling 8 mil. a year is worried about the cost of living?

Yeah, this is some straight up grave dancin'.

Dude, port is strictly for after dinner.
I mean, Go Blue!

7 mil is a bad symbol, but 5 is okay? Explain that, please.
|37 weeks 6 days ago||I live in Oakland and I love||
I live in Oakland and I love it. Great town, and much improved over the last 5-10 years. Not that JH would have to live here.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||I agree with just about all||
I agree with just about all of it in principle. But it's not written in a very professional way. Far too many exclamation points, just to start (like a 12-year-old's diary). If the authors want it to be taken seriously they should use a more formal style, whch could still convey the severity of the issue.

"There's still a chance to save Hoke!"
|45 weeks 4 days ago||Forcing the defender to push||
Forcing the defender to push through you, and thus slowing him, certainly constitutes at least "a modicum of resistance."

not on your life ...

Then what does Pam Ward have to do with anything?

Shut up. You're far too reasonable.

Dude, that's a cardigan.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||I think what many of believe||
I think what many of believe is that by appealing to the die-hard, tradition-obsessed, quasi-purist crowd, the AD might build the "brand" in such a way as to make the experience more appealling to all. You can't compete with TV by being "better" in terms of the visuals and the convenience. You have to be different from TV, the NFL, etc. You have to cultivate what makes (or once made, if only in our imaginations) Michigan special.
It's sad that the sooges in charge of the AD are so tone-deaf that they can't about the "brand" except in narrow, short-sighted way.

Okak, that could be so. Is that common knowledge? And is that what the author of the post meant? In the context of this article, it seems like it should have some bearing on Fisher's coaching ability. Still not clear if it's supposed to be a credit or detriment to him.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||"In the aftermath Fisher||
"In the aftermath Fisher decided to take the team to Europe, an experience that was lost on his wards."
I found this a bit puzzling. Does it mean that it was a bad decision to take the trip? That the players didn't appreciate or profit from it? If so, why is that true? I recall Jalen speaking about the trip in the Fab Five documentary, but, if memory serves, he was positive about it, culture-shock notwithstanding.

Isn't a recruit meeting Charles Woodson some kind of NCAA violation?

|1 year 22 weeks ago||I agree. I think the rule||
I agree. I think the rule could make an impact because it would give defenses confidence that they could substitute as long as they did it in fewer than 10 secs. The fear of getting burned by a quick snap is lessened, if not removed. That certainty would, I assume, make it easier to practice for facing the hurry-up as well.

Once the spacecraft had landed, wouldn't it have been clear that a person could walk safely?

Winning there is the best response possible.

Maybe not likely, but it would be fun to have Orgeron in the B1G.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Wrong. If your team is bad it||
Wrong. If your team is bad it can't possibly get better for at least two decades. At least that's what I've been hearing lately.

"the platonic ideal of your linebackers not understanding"
I don't think there can be a Platonic ideal (or any ideal) of a mistake or ignorance --that's deviation from the ideal.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||Wow, an excellent suggestion.||
Wow, an excellent suggestion. Does every bit of content need its own comment thread?
|1 year 47 weeks ago||NW looked decent||
The heat? You've obviously not spent any time in the Bay Area.
I saw the game and wasn't terribly impressed with NW, though they do have some speedy guys. Game could have gone to Cal quite easily.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||And delicious cake is||
And delicious cake is delicious. I didn't like the phrasing - just one man's opinion. Carry on.

"Life decays us all"
I don't think "decay" is a transitive verb. Otherwise, pretty good.
