it's actually good advice not in that context.

Thanks agin! I found the email. It could have used "football Saturdays" in the subject line. I get so many darn emails from them. Anyway, season tix renewed and going to do some shopping on May 8 too! Can't wait!!

where did you get that alumni association info? I haven't seen that
|1 week 12 hours ago||Clearly a schtick||
When it rains the pessimist points out the window and feels vindicated. "See, I told you."
Your far from being "realistic." You have not given an objective assessment of MSU, rather you choose hyperbole and storylines that are trumpeted by the most optimistic MSU fan. McDowell has "by all accounts" been rising since his last year? Whose accounts are thoise? Practice fluff that most fans discount heavily?
How about your failure to mention any weakness for MSU other thant "cornerbacks" which was quickly followed with a comment that Dantonio thrives in that area (i.e., they will be okay). No mention of the change from Narduzzi to others and, even if they are similar coaches, how much it might affect the result based on Narduzzi's personality and in-game decision making. No one knows how it will affect the team but Spartanf fans say they won't miss a beat and Michigan and other fans are more likely to suggest it could be a problem. You don't see it as even a potential issue (nor any other issue facing that team). Why?
Re-read your post. You You say that people here keep saying"take a big step back." How Michigan fans are a "funny mem" about MSU. You also make a joke that you should have "just said Harbaugh" instead of point things out. You also say Michigan fans are saying "no way can they keep this up.." Etc. Your post is littered with your biggest concern.... overly optimistic fans. You exaggerate their pressence in order to defenda your negative take.
Maybe you are a Michigan fan protecting yourself from being too optimistic. You've been burned and you're bitter. Maybe you just enjoy being contrrian or seeing the glass half-full. Who knows what motivates you to be so pessimistic about UM and positive about rivals. I have no idea.
But, you are far from realistic. There is no realism in seeing only positives of others and negatives of UM. You are a pessimist pretending to be "keeping it real." Its a cheap schitck, but you do it well. Keep on hating. Let the dark side feul you.
|1 week 13 hours ago||schtick||
I always thought this was his schtick. he always tries to see things in the worst possible light for UM and the best for others. super pessimistic guy who lauds others, but claims being a fan (or favoring) Michigan. like Phil on WTKA. it's entertaining! !
|1 week 21 hours ago||no.||
no one wanted what happened, but the locals want to punish them more because they are rich outsiders. others who don't like their socioeconomic group.
|1 week 1 day ago||bias||
you pick another group who would face extreme bias by the Gaylord crowd. why not treat them like they would so group of good old boys from a local community college? no one would even register that as news.
|1 week 1 day ago||wealth has nothing to do with it||
I advocate not judging based on wealth and treating the kids like any other group of kids. the reason many want the up north kids severely punished is some form of socioeconomic insecurity. they see wealth, not justice.
|1 week 1 day ago||social media||
very much like the increased media attention on police brutality, this TYPE of thing has always gone on, it's the social media or video phones bringing it to light that is the issue.
|1 week 1 day ago||this is something||
I think these kids should be punished like the up north kids. discipline by the frats and/or restitution. no criminal record or school expulsion though. that is too far.
|1 week 1 day ago||if||
if we keep it to one game or less per year, then it's fine by me. if we start playing night games all the time, then less so...
|1 week 1 day ago||people come and go||
every year people come and go for different reasons. some are self evident. others are hidden. it sounds like she left for a bunch of reasons aside from the product.
my brother gave up his season tickets because he said he was afraid of a terrorist attack (post 911). actually he had financial problems that not many knew about. likewise others have left because of the media over reaction regarding concussions.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||But, everyone counts tickets||
But, everyone counts tickets sold as the minimum for attendance AFAIK
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Your conclusion? I can't see||
Your conclusion? I can't see your conclusion that we were under 100k for any games last year. The stats seem to indicate the opposite. There was almost always 100k tickets sold or "comped" and the announced attendance was near that amount each time. There are at least a couple thousand employees, media, support staff, etc. The closest they got was Utah when there was 96k in ticket attendance. If you don't believe the "other people" add up to that much, check out the PSU game and the MSU, Iowa and Wisco games from 2010. Even when there is a high demand for tickets and a sell out, there is still 7k or so "others" for each game.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||How does this logic work?||
If the Ravens can visit the Browns for a night game, then why can't we have MSU at night?
Just because another town allows a lot of mayhem, why can't we do the same?
If New Orleans can host Mardi Gras, why can't Birmingham, Michigan? (BTW - Locals in NO seem to hate everything about that holiday, except the influx of money).
So, a southern city will put up with being pissed on and overrun with potentially dangerous drunks, just to increase expsoure and/or revenue for the sole sports teams in the state, why can't we sink to that level?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Party at MSU||
I often spent weekends in college driving from Ann Arbor to EL to party with friends. The women were hotter and "easier."
|2 weeks 3 days ago||destination||
that is because Ohio is a drive through state and Michigan is a destination in itself.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||behavioral indication.||
there is your internal consent. pretty nebulous area legally. but, few women will ever agree how grey that area is to men.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||No internal consent?||
How often do people get a "yes I want sex" as part of the act? Most of the time it is unspoken and very welcome on both accounts. There is no such thing as internal consent? As you serious with that claim? In fact I know you are not otherwise the legal consent issue would be a man offering proof of verbal consent.
Officer: Were you sure?
Man: I think so. She seemed into it.
Officer:There is no internal consent. If you are not sure, then you are going to jail.
Thanks for not over-stating things....
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Reparations||
Let's pay for the sins of previous generations. I love that idea. As a white male, I should be fine with things that swing too far against me in the other direction just because the previous genertions were abusive. Your logic is infaliable.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Make no mistake||
I am not trying to say it is OKAY for colleges to be like that. I was just explaining why they are like that/
Having lived in the "real world" now for a long time, I see how silly the whole college atmosphere really is....
Remember, I am the guy who is concerned that frat members will have their lives ruined by being charged with felonies for being young, drunk and destroying an underwater hotel. But, it may hapen because of the "social justice" of teaching rich kids a lesson about respect. (Of course, they should have to repay actual costs.)
The social justice warriors in college need to just go to work and realize that the world is more concerned about much more serious issues.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Emblematic of the problem||
The statistics pointed out in the first comment are overbroad. Someone responds to say as much. You respond they are right, but they are discounting rape too much. Meanwhile, no one has any clue what is right or wrong. This is often based on internal thoughts and feelings.
The problem is that women may feel "forced" into something when maybe they aren't really being forced. Plus, men are concerned that they have no control over what type of "real consent" is going on inside the mind of a woman.
Unless you have a verbalization of "No," this all exists in the mind of the woman. She may internally consent. She may not internally consent. No one, but the woman knows...and sometimes she is unsure.
That puts the woman in a tremendous position of power.

colleges have different standards than law enforcement for many reasons. first and foremost, it is voluntary place you send your kids at the age of 18. parents and kids want it safer than the real world. second, there is no jail time or crim record here. third, it is a place that is concerned more about being progressive more than other institutions. other things that are different in college than the normal criminal justice system: hate speech, cheating in an ethical sense to get ahead, Marijuana possession, etc.
|3 weeks 10 hours ago||seriously?||
doesn't everyone know that without tickets or turnstiles that it is just some random reporter guessing at a numbet? Michigan could have had 40K or 80K plus! it is literally just a wild guess. no science. no basis. how do you compare something like that?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||offers||
I don't know if there is a cut off in ranking, but Michigan gets a majority of in state kids they offer. might not be a fence, but it is probably similar to the percentage of kids in Ohio with an OSU offer that go to OSU.

don't disprove the rule.

|4 weeks 1 day ago||my take||
I have run it a couple times including last year. I have never brought my passport on race day. The chances of getting stopped are very minimal although they may profile others or something. I took the Amtrack to and from it when I lived in Chicago. If you have to work on Monday, stretching and moving around the train beats being in a car. Of course, it is more like a 6.5 hour trip by train.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||michigan centered view||
so you think a guy who wins two SEC titles in 9 years at Arkansas is a top ten coach? you can look at the 11 wins Stat unique to the current Era (more games) and horrible Big Ten (outside OSU, who beat them in a home night game by double digits). So, the lots of wins each year thing is good, but dependant on a lot.
I think Believe should definitely be higher than him.
