I have watched all of their games this season from start to finish.
They've looked woeful in all of their games.

I am a Michigan fan who graduated from Michigan.
What's with your complex that anything not according to the party line must be attacked?

Here, I'll post again so you can double up. He hasn't coached since the 80's, I wish we'd stop talking about him so much.

Fun fact: an MSU grad was on the short list to replace Rehnquist.

Bo is dead, I don't care about his outdated wishes.

1. This is hilarious
2. I might not think so if I had a kid getting run over like that- that kind of physical mismatch probably isn't safe
3. Reminds me of Penn State trying to tackle Pitt

I'm not sure how to read you. Is this faux combativeness because an us-vs-them mindset is fun for you, or do you genuinely think we shouldn't accommodate opposing fans?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I don't understand how this||
I don't understand how this looks bad for Oklahoma. Playing a football against them doesn't mean you have to be petty and difficult to deal with. It's a pep rally that won't affect the game, and they're just being hospitable hosts.

Using nicknames for players weirds me out. It's overly familiar.

US News & World Report. To be fair, I would have downvoted that one too. Or at least rolled my eyes really hard.

Nope. LS&A class of 2014.

Because I don't think it's a very good ranking, I'm skeptical of the utility of college rankings to begin with, I don't like how often we (as a fan base) bring up academics when talking about football, and it's kinda lame to post this ranking over and over again when there's a more widely accepted ranking that doesn't list us as high (it feels like cherry picking)
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Hi! I would (and did)||
Hi! I would (and did) downvote this. I downvote these ranking every time I see them posted.
Feel free to downvote me back.

I don't understand why people do JD/MBAs. The people in my school's JD/MBA program have enjoyed pretty good law firm placement, but so have the regular old JDs. No idea what value the MBA adds to the JD.
The JD adds even less value to the MBA, I'd bet.

I don't know, I watched a lot of track and field at like 2 in the morning when I was in undergrad.

It would be paying players for playing college football. Hard to police from a monitoring perspective, but still against the rules.

This sounds like a positve thing to me.

I'm not an economist so I don't have very sophisticated views on this. I don't think it's such a foreign or controversial idea that sometimes what's most economically efficient isn't always what's best from a moral perspective, though. That's not emotional mish mash. Minimum wage might be an example of what I mean.
|51 weeks 8 hours ago||It only always comes down to||
It only always comes down to economics if you accept that the market price is automatically where the price ought to be.

I think it's pretty clear she isn't making an economic argument. Many in this thread are just sort of shouting past her.

Anything wrong with that?
If I were a University chancellor, I would be cool with a second-rate football program too.

I don't know what he donates. But if I ever become a billionaire I know for certain 0% of it is going to Michigan.
Edit: what I mean to say is that you make it sound like he should be donating to Michigan if he's not, and I don't agree.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Ha, no. I think the problem||
Ha, no. I think the problem was that I was just very unclear.
What I meant to say was something like "this argument works just as well for the conclusion that we should get rid of the music school, that conclusion is kind of untenable plus it's not good when your premises just as easily support two contradictory conclusions, therefore we have good reason to think we should reexamine the argument."
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Sorry, I should clarify. I||
Sorry, I should clarify. I don't think we should do away with the music school. I think there are important differences between the music school and athletics that make Brian's argument weak, though. He glosses over these differences, and I was trying to illustrate that in a colorful way.
|1 year 45 weeks ago||Alternatively, this makes a||
Alternatively, this could just as well be a case for why Michigan should abandon the music school.
Sure, different people have different skills. That doesn't mean a University ought to cater to all of them, though.
