Solid hire. Kind of sucks for Ark State that they can't keep a coach for longer than a year, though.

Yeah? Well you sucks!

I know it doesn't sound like it to people from Michigan, but it does sound A LOT like 'black' to me when you say 'block.' Not exactly, but very close. It's like when Canadians insist that none of them say aboot (I think it sounds more like a-boat, but whatever) when they clearly do.

It's all varying degrees of Rick Snyder's accent. His is the best example I can think of.

Nope. Not even from that region.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Michigan is a pretty good||
Michigan is a pretty good school with a strong football tradition, but the cult that surrounds us with things like "this is Michigan!" and "Harvard of the West" is way over the top.
The state of Michigan kind of sucks. Lots of outdoor activities to be had, but my ability to utilize those are limited because Ann Arbor's lack of parking means I can't have a car.
Michiganders DO have an accent that differs from Standard American and it fucking grates at my sanity.
I have a billion of these.

What if I told you I knew who did it and that they're Michigan students? Because both of those are true.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Wait, when did Michigan hire||
Wait, when did Michigan hire Tressel?
|5 days 13 hours ago||There is an elitist narrative||
There is an elitist narrative in many Michigan football circles, my guess is that's where it stems from. Violence against opposing fans isn't something Michigan's innocent of, though, the narrative is irrelevant.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Sure, those sort of behaviors||
Sure, those sort of behaviors are unfortunate. But realize that they're only ever exhibited toward opposing fans. Michigan fans could be worse with the sort of behavior you describe for all you know, but you never would know because you're a Michigan fan.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Huh. I have OSU fans in the||
Huh. I have OSU fans in the family, but they havn't done any of those things yet. Thanks for the warning, I'll have to make sure to watch out.
|5 days 13 hours ago||"Unnacceptable" is the wrong||
"Unacceptable" is the wrong word, but I'd hope we're bowl eligible.
|5 days 13 hours ago||What makes a fanbase||
What makes a fanbase obnoxious? Obviously the fanbases in question are pretty large, so it'd be pretty ridiculous to think there isn't significant diversity within each. Necessarily then, when you try to characterize fanbases, you're only commenting on certain segments within it. Well, what sort of qualities must this segment have for the fanbase as a whole to rightfully be called "obnoxious?" How large must this segment be?
Answer all these questions, and then ask if your answers don't also apply to our fanbase. If your answer to this question is no, then I would suggest you're either willfully blind to that segment because you want to feel superior, or you're part of it.
|5 days 13 hours ago||That represents a ton of||
That represents a ton of redneck Michigan fans, then. If your argument is that OSU's fanbase is obnoxious, and that it is obnoxious because it has a ton of rednecks, don't you also have to concede that we have good reason to think our fanbase is probably obnoxious too?
|5 days 13 hours ago||I'll try to approach the||
I'll try to approach the question a different way. Who do you think all the toothless rednecks in the state of Michigan are fans of?
|5 days 14 hours ago||When OSU has non affiliated||
When OSU has non affiliated fans they're "toothless rednecks." When people try to say the same thing about our fanbase ("Walmart Wolverines"), we jump down their throats (on this blog at least). What the hell is the difference, though?
|1 week 9 hours ago||As much as I've thoroughly||
As much as I've thoroughly enjoyed going to hockey games the past few years, this right here has always been my main issue with college hockey. It isn't televised like football or basketball, so how are you able to get a firm grasp on how good Michigan is vs. the rest of the country until late into the season? Look at stat sheets?
I've always kind of felt lost following Michigan hockey, or like I'm experiencing it in a bubble.

I can think of several reasons to not want to be singled out like that.
|1 week 2 days ago||The truth is just too much||
The truth is just too much for some people to bear, it seems.
|1 week 2 days ago||Uh, if mods delete this||
Uh, if mods delete this thread I will be extremely disappointed. This is exactly the sort of hard hitting issue this blog should make its business to investigate.
|1 week 2 days ago||Excellent.||
Excellent. Perfectly executed.
|1 week 2 days ago||You seem to be missing the||
You seem to be missing the point. Yes, they are pushed in certain directions. I know that happens at Michigan all the time, even in non revenue sports. They don't take your scholarship away if you fail to comply, though. You get benched. Again, it's a trade off. They want to play though, so they decide it's in their best interest to take the easier major. Who cares if you disagree with them on that point?
|1 week 2 days ago||Yep, that's exactly how I'm||
Yep, that's exactly how I'm sure it goes. Word for word. So, uh.... explain how we've had engineers and business majors on the team before? How we've had athletes do pre med? The strongest argument you can make is that they're pushed in one direction or another and that they might lose playing time if they don't submit. But that's a reasonable trade off, I think.

Tried to drag his arms down. Eventually trapped them in a bear hug going up the tunnel.

I feel the same way about the Midwest.
|1 week 2 days ago||Well, I'm a student and I||
Well, I'm a student and I don't like it. We're a pretty big group, actually. Probably a safe bet that there's some diversity of opinion.
|1 week 3 days ago||What an interesting and||
What an interesting and unique perspective on the student section you have ben of providing with us presently. Needed to create you a bit of observation to be able to thank you so much yet again for your gorgeous thoughts you have documented at this time.

Kind of have to believe that's a lifetime achievement pick. Pretty lame.
|1 week 3 days ago||Y'all're right. Deliverance||
Y'all're right. Deliverance is basically a documentary of my daily life. Clearly inferior to the midwest. Guess y'all're just more evolved than we are. Yep. Don't mind my hick self, just gonna go throw in some chewin' tobaccah and then impregnate my cousin.
