Probably would have been worth talking to some of your customers before making such a move. I understand your need to make ad revenue but worst case you could have bought the app or vastly improved the native one. Honestly the user experience has been significantly downgraded here and it's probably going to lead to less page views overall as angry customers will avoid coming on the computer browser as well now. You guys have by far the best content out there but at the end of the day we have seen the best products in the world fail when they try to make rules for the customer. Don't be Blockbuster.
P.S. add me to the list who are willing to pay $10 for the HD app or even $2-4/month for an ad free subscription.

My bet is this is like UM vs ND 4 and 5 years back...both these teams are mediocre and finish 7-6 or 8-5 at best

Lebron also got a flagrant, he just hasn't accumulated as many flagrant points so isn't suspended

Honestly I don't mind this post as much as others do...it just shows how much of a hill we have to climb in order to beat our biggest rivals. In 4 years they have lost 4 games...now if only we could achieve that feat.

I don't see why the type of punter really matters that much, it's more about your ability to cover the return. Hopefully the MSU disaster isn't driving them towards this terrible decision

I'd be surprised if Ross admits Raulerson to the MBA program - never heard of anyone (in recent history) getting in with less than 2 years of post-undergraduate work experience

|2 years 18 weeks ago||They can absolutely alter the terms if both parties agree||Using Hoke and Brandon is not the best example - why would they agree to anything but their full buyout? At that point M had no leverage and they had nothing to lose. On the other hand, Harbaugh can avoid all the trade stuff and negotiated buyout by agreeing (and vice versa for the 49ers).|

So my gut says...hooray!

I'm pretty sure the 49ers can part ways with him and build in restrictions into any sort of agreement they sign when this occurs. Part of this agreement will likely involve foregoing the buyout as well as him being able to coach in the NFL (or at least the NFC) for X number of years.

I think you take the easy bucket there. Not many players that will make that clean block in that situation...
|2 years 22 weeks ago||This team is better than last years at this point||
The offense is still finding its way, mostly due to the youth involved and new players taking on the "load" (Irvin still getting used to handling the ball a lot). Spike is stepping up huge being the primary ball handler against pressure teams. Our shooting will come around by midseason once the offense is working more flawlessly.
The biggest improvement this year is on perimeter defense. We shut down two solid penetrating guards the last two games (although Ennis was hot from outside). Caris, Irvin and even Spike are solid at limiting penetration without giving up open 3s. Our rebounding also looks somewhat improved, as we came back down and only allowed 8 OR tonight.
Tough game but early returns are encouraging. No doubt this team will be in it for the run at a Big Ten title.

But fortunately you only need one kidney
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Good perspective||
I think one thing that did upset people with some former players' comments is that sport is important for this University, but it's not everything. There are students and alumni who work just as hard as the SAs to further the sciences, arts, Michigan community, etc. and it's hard to argue that their contributions are any less than yours.
I admire your commitment to the University and thank you for that. I think it's important however to keep in mind that we are in this together and 99.99% of us will not be professional athletes or big donors, but can still have a positive impact on the university, muggle or not.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Great article, this part reminded me of something I was thinking||
<blockquote>This might be semantics, but I don't think Hoke is a quitter. He's (sadly) calling the game the same way in the 1st quarter as he is in the 4th quarter. He's like the worst movie version of artificial intelligence. He doesn't learn from the past, he doesn't integrate new information into his plans, he isn't becoming sentient, and he sure as hell isn't turning the world's electronics against the humans.</blockquote>
I was thinking during the game that Hoke was acting a lot like the AI in a Madden '07 game. The punt is a perfect example. So is his weird decision to start running the hurry up with 10 min left in the 4th, but not earlier even when we were down 3+ TDs. I could also probably say his lack of timeouts at the end of the 2nd quarter as well. And most of all, what we saw on the football field - that Madden AI was easy to beat most of the time.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Vastly different - right now we are an embarrassment||
we didn't have a team full of buffoons putting stakes in the field and a coach who can't even make easy decisions about clock management, etc.
Michigan State planted their flag in ND's field in 2005 and everyone was like what a bunch of idiots, typical Sparty. Now we are them. At least when they did it, it was after they had won.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Who are my other choices?||
Sure this guy looks pretty awesome, but without somebody else to compare him to it is hard to know for sure I would vote for him. Can somebody give me a run down of what's happening? If you're wondering, yes I am a Michigan voter.

One thing I like here is this:
"Michael Taylor is a fifth-year quarterback. He's the leader of our team. Hell's afire, we send him out there with a bad arm. If Michael's healthy, you'll see a difference."
I think the point is, when you have Gardner why was Shane ever in the game in the first place?

I like it - File and save this and maybe we can put together a letter for many of us to sign and send to the new AD when he/she is brought on

For those that go, can we please focus on Brandon and not seem like a petty group who wants to win more? Also, structured and concise arguments go a lot further than rambling emotional rants!
