T-shirt was the first thing I thought, although I'm not sure about your reservations about the imagry. I think some baggy M basketball shorts with a buldge at the bottom...
Yeah, as I type that I realize that I couldn't wear that anywhere. Still think that slogan should be on a T with a picture of the banner if we win it - the final fulfillment of what they didn't accomplish when they changed the culture.
PS Beat Cuse!

Could the Montgomery thing turn out a plus for us?
I mean yes it's never a good thing to lose a 1st tier dline coach, but it doesn't reflect poorly on Michigan with the Hoke/Mattison shadow looming.
I remember seeing a post in another thread on how we might pick up a LB coach and just let the old guys continue to churn out NFL prospects. I'd think we could pick up a young 1st tier coach looking to really shine - maybe Ray Lewis (99.9% kidding).

Maybe I'm missing something, but if a kid or his parents don't want to hear from a coach, can't they just say: "if you contact me again I'm pressing charges for harassment"?
It's easy to paint the kids as helpless victims, but don't they ultimately control how much or how little they're contacted by any particular coach?

1. It's tough to win on the road in the B1G
2. This team currently lacks the poise to win it all. This comes from youth. When they're on they're so talented they're unstoppable, when they're off, only Burke and Hardaway have the mental toughness to focus and keep the ship on track and that's not enough to win against a good team in a tough environment. This lack of mental toughness results in the missed layups and disappearing acts.
Those freshmen are going to have to grow up fast if we're going to even make it to the final four.

So if these sell better than the uniformz we've rolled out recently will Bottom-Line Brandon be more inclined to make future alternates more "classic" in nature and less "oh god my eyes"?
If so, please put me down for two.

To all of the posters saying, "well he has a good point" - that still doesn't mean he's not an asshole.
You could make a good point that a fat woman is fat, but it's still a dick move to say something like that and offer to help her lose weight completely unsolicited.
If the other coaches were asking for help it'd be another story, but this is pretty condescending.

Thank you for reminding me of this:

Can't think of one off the top of my head - just predicting the future based on the way other internet-based media models and consumer demand seem to be headed in a "buy only what you want" sort of way.
Buying individual songs vs albums is the perfect example. Companies resisted, now their profits are higher than ever.

Holy shit, that's my question!!! Never in a million years - thanks Brian.

But I forgot the number of B1G titles

I'm guessing not a lot of people make it from Glenville to Ann Arbor. A reminder of his accomplishment, the hard work it took to achieve it, and the lessons he picked up along the way are probably things he won't mind being reminded of 40 years from now.
Now, if it were something random without that meaning behind it I'd agree with you.

Came here to say the same thing.
Denard's easily in my top 5 favorite players and his expectations were to win the B1G Championship his senior year - and maybe the Heisman.
Sure it was a perfect storm of dat schedule, the fusion cuisene not really working out, and of course the injury - but he still covers those two criteria.

Crazy coincidence, I saw way too much of him at Skeeps.
(Not that crazy considering everyone who went to Skeeps in those days can share my story)

Simple answer: It depends on what you want it for.
If you need productivity and a keyboard dock, then the Transformer Infinity is the best you can get.
If you want the best screen on the market for media consumprtion with fast updates than the nexus is the way to go.

It was an all time turd of a movie

Is it just me or does Hoke look kind of like the Gungan king?
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Wow, you couldn't blame||
Wow, you couldn't blame anyone for leaving after an all american year but that is an incredible list.
Edit: Much more importantly, congrats to Mr. Lewan on a truely tremendous accomplishment.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Long was the best I can||
Long was the best I can imagine. I walked past him once and just shook at the size of the man and reports said no one worked harder.
And yeah Taylor is playing with a different o-line and without the leading rusher in U of M history behind him (Lond definitely had something to do with that but I still had some "wow" moments with Hart) but his words still put a little onion in my eye. This tradition is really something special.

So wait... Braylon got in touble for running his mouth? Never would have seen that coming

Hey Brian (or anyone) - just curious as to why you always list Norfleet as a RB when in our MANBALL offense he seems much more like a slot/Breaston/screen/end around type of guy and would make a better fit for your #27 spot than Hayes.
What am I missing here?

Fire Borges. Sorry, I had to get it out.

In 3.5 hours I'll be at the bar going crazy. This is officially the slowest morning in the history of the world.
May Devin's passes strike true and may the wings of anges try to keep up with Denard's feet as he burns the buckeye defense. Go Blue. Beat Ohio!!!

God, I hate those slack-jawed mouth breathers. Beat Ohio!

I just watched these for the first time this week. Funny, although I must say I enjoyed the RC version better. My favorite parts of the Family Guy episodes were probably the two Seths went back and forth about the quality and viewership of RC.

Man, losing half of a UFR has to be terribly frustrating, thanks for not just saying eff-it. Looking forward to a double-dose tomorrow!

You made me check mine. Luckily, we've still got 154 options available. No worries yet

In Manhattan. I just got two gallons of drinking water and a fifth of Jack. Should be good to go just in case.
