You have obviously never watched a cheer competition in the last 10 years to still hold that belief. If you believe gymnastics is a sport than cheer is just a team gymnastics event whereby everyone on the team is competing at the same time.

Kudos to both of you for making me laugh!

Sorry Brian but I wholeheartedly disagree with you. I don't believe college football players, or for that matter, any college athlete should be paid other than a modest stipend to compensate for the fact that they don't have time to hold down a job while at school because of time contraints placed on them by their sport.
I'm not naive enough to believe that cheating and paying of players will change given the enormous sums of money to be made by successful college football programs or the prestige that comes with it. Public universities should not be in the business of paying college athletes just because they are making money off their athletes backs.
I believe the answer is to provide another avenue for football players to develop their skills outside of college football programs similar to those offered by baseball and hockey sports. Those football athletes who value the benefit of guaranteed free tuititon worth over 100k can use that to their advantage. Those athletes not interested in that route could go the other more risky route where they are payed money to develop their skills without the burden "we ain't come to play school" of attending classes.

You think? I only managed to wake in time to watch the fifth but reading through the thread just now is entertaining as hell. Everyone was giving Roger for dead but the old man went for it and proved everyone wrong. Never been a huge Fed fan but he certainly proved some shit out there today. Hard not to call him GOAT after this.

Please stop... Just stop with the Najee posts already.
|33 weeks 19 hours ago||I think the perception that||
I think the perception that Harbaugh left Speight in for a long time is really misguided. We have a QB who has extremely limited experience starting or even playing in college football. He is not an upperclassmen QB who has much experience prior to this year. He needs some experience leading into some tougher competition. How is he expected to get this experience other than playing in games? Also, why no criticism for Meyer leaving Barrett in until the same point of the game? It's because it really wasn't that unusual.

My thoughts exactly. Would love to see the Lions cut him and have Baltimore sign him. Perfect symmetry.
|37 weeks 5 days ago||Anyone claiming Nike quality||
Anyone claiming Nike quality is better than Adidas is pure garbage. I have no affinity for one over another and have worn both over the years. I happen to like Adidas basketball shorts and warmup pants better than Nike and Nike shirts/jackets better than Adidas but the quality is the same. My Adidas shorts/pants have lasted years through constant use with absolutely no issues. Same for Nike shirts/jackets.
Having said all that I probably prefer that we signed with Nike/Jordan over re-signing with Adidas or Under Armour.

When I first looked at it I thought it said "A Brandon Thread". Pretty appropriate if you think about it

I really like Justin Bieber's new album Purpose. Neg away....

This guy is a professional journalist? My 10 year old daughter could write a more coherent article.
|47 weeks 1 day ago||I think he's sending staffers||
I think he's sending staffers to see how Harbaugh manages camps. You have to understand your enemy before you can defeat your enemy. Smart thinking but it will be a cold day in hell before Harbaugh sits back and lets someone else steel his thunder at a camp. The way he looks at it MORE COMPETITION!

Pretty embarrasing that 10 Buckeyes are drafted before the first Wolverine. Hopefully, we can turn that around really soon.

It's all about ratings. The best thing we could do as a fan base is just ignore him and don't let him do the same thing that he accuses Harbaugh of doing...draw attention to his word vomit.

I played in the Michigan Bantam division state championship game. We lost late in the third period by a fluke goal which went over our goalies head landed on the ice behind him and slid into the net.

Keyshawn is an asshole. I ran into him at a Super Bowl party a few years back and along with a buddy went up to say hi and have a few words with him. He was standing alone with his bodyguard talking to no one at the time. He had his bodyguard push us away with a "Keyshawn doesn't want to talk with you right now". We relayed the message to my buddy's brother who was the one hosting the party and 30 minutes later his boyguard found us and told us "Keyshawn will talk with you now". We just laughed and walked away.

I agree with you on Notting Hill. And I'm usually an action movie aficionado. Can I say that I'm also a fan of Top Gun. You didn't used to be embarrassed to admit you like the movie but you know... Tom Cruise... The guy creeps me out now.

My favorite band. I saw Henley in December at the Fox and was surprised how old he looked. I guess I'm not that far behind them.

We do have the benefit of in-state tuition so for me I definitely know where I would like her to go to school (i attended UM as well). But both of her parents are in a position to allow her to go wherever she chooses. She did attend cheer camp at Michigan a couple times and really enjoyed herself so I hope when it comes down to it she chooses wisely (i.e. Michigan).
|1 year 19 weeks ago||My daughter received her||
My daughter received her acceptance to Michigan today. She is still considering other schools (Duke, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, John Hopkins) but I am proud of her wherever she decides to go to school.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||The thing that most worries||
The thing that most worries me about Durkin accepting the Maryland job isn't the loss of a first rate OC but the effect it may have on our east coast recruiting. Durkin is a proven outstanding recruiter and we were doing well with east coast recruiting since Harbaugh took over.

I can. I have lived in metro Detroit my whole life and have experience the incompetence of the Lions just as long.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||So I see your logic is to||
So I see your logic is to save all your cash and put it in the bank. A lot of good that will do you if you don't live long enough to enjoy it. The problem is we aren't talking about life and financial security. We are talking about fielding the best team and winning football games. Your insurance policy is Bredeson, Swenson, Onwenu, Hamilton and others. I guess it's a bitch we burned Mason Cole's redshirt too. You play your best players. In most cases that is not true freshman. When they are your best players you play them.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Red shirting is important to||
Red shirting is important to teams who don't recruit at the top level and need more time to develop talented players (I.e. MSU in the past). It is way less important to teams that recruit at Michigans level. And there is absolutely no indication that Harbaugh won't be able to recruit with the best of them. Put the best team on the field.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||The Team The Team The Team.||
The Team The Team The Team. Who gives a shit about redshirts. The objective is to win games over personal achievements. The fact that many on this board don't understands this baffles me.

This is the lowest point ever of being a Michigan Wolverine. I'm 53 years old.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||I believe it if Jabrill||
I believe it if Jabrill admitted to it but then why was Jabrill closing in on Jehu at the end of the run? I must have watched the replay 10 times and loved the block that Jabril set as well.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Am I the only one who is||
Am I the only one who is getting pretty annoyed with all the discussion on this board regarding rankings? I only care about wins and losses. The rankings will take care of itself.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||I totally agree with that||
I totally agree with that perspective. How would we be doing if all we had was Morris to throw in there this year? Considering Harbaugh believes he is our best QB by far (who is going to doubt him) we could be a lot more disappointed.
