?? They already sold 100k and they count paid attendance. Where's the threat?
|3 days 15 hours ago||That is not what Haney said.||
That is not what Haney said. He said he has not spoken to anyone who believes that a Harbaugh would leave the NFL for UM. Maybe his sources just don't have a reason t believe one way or another? Maybe he is predisposed to needing someone to believe it before he will believe it. If everyone gives hm non-committal answers then he doesn't not believe it. If he said his sources don't believe it will happen, that is a slightly different quote.

Bad at communicating? Is your need to pile on against Hoke so deep, you have to look for faults that are not there? We get it. You are hurt because the team didn't win enough. We all are. Stop irrationally lashing out against the coach because you are a hurt fan. Clark is in jail. Hike is an extremely busy man (who probably works more hours a day than most people really work in a week). There is no problem not talking to Clark at this point. Seriously, are you just looking for reasons to question Any of Hoke's actions because you had a sad face at then end of games this year?
|5 days 12 hours ago||What is the difference||
What is the difference between a reason and an excuse? A reason is just a reason. An excuse means you think they should be forgiven for the reason. You can feel bad for someone and not find it excusable of their actions.

|5 days 21 hours ago||I don't think 17 carries for||
I don't think 17 carries for 6 yards sounds familiar this year at all. We are not great at running the ball, but we average more than a yard more per carry than Maryland. That is not an insignificant difference.
|6 days 7 hours ago||"Enough" detail? Enough for||
"Enough" detail? Enough for what? The kid may have done everything mentioned and more, but there is more to it. As an aside, this is the EXACT reason criminal cases have to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. A lot of people have "enough facts" after two minutes.
|6 days 7 hours ago||A police report is never full||
A police report is never full detail of what happened. That is just reality. It could have been worse or better. I don't know. But, I also know enough to understand what a police report means.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Full detail? You should||
Full detail? You should change the title. Police reports are never the full story. I don't care what he did or didn't do (honestly, I don't), I just feel sad that a website full of UM grads appears ignorant of the legal system.

Your mom. Both are overweight and always sound like they are chewing on something. Neither likes to wear much clothes. And both try really hard, but leave me wanting more. Zing.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Not really. Minny is a good||
Not really. Minny is a good team. ODU is better, but hardly elite.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Let's just not rag on our own||
Let's just not rag on our own team unnecessarily. When they do some good, I like to acknowledge that too and not belittle what they have done.
|1 week 17 hours ago||I think OSU will beat Minny||
I think OSU will beat Minny too, I would just not expect them to roll away early in the 3rd or something. It should be a one or two score game. Same thing with MSU and Maryland. The big ten has lots of teams in the spectrum of mediocre to good without significant seperation. People might call it "balanced" and not very impressive nationally.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Wow. I thought there some||
Wow. I thought there some really good defensive plays last week, but if you want to say downing punts were the two best plays, I'll blindly accept it without thinking.....
|1 week 17 hours ago||Ohio State's record over the||
Ohio State's record over the year has shown them to be a very good, but not great team. They have one impressive win over a team that was also very good and not great. I don't think Michigan will beat them, but their resume is not very impressive. I expect a good game in Minny today.

Miami? Why would he go there when he turned their huge offer down a few years ago?

Demand excellence!!! Leave wisdom to the adults.
|1 week 4 days ago||A joke?||
I will easily argue that.
Stop whining and moaning. We all are down about the football team based on our expectations, but you over-state the fact because you are immature.
A joke? You didn't say "had some bad years" or haven't lived up to expectations. You said it has been a joke and has been for "quite some time."
Absolutely not true. a .500 record is a "joke"? Disappointing, yes? Laughingstock bad? Nope. How about a solid 2012 team and a Sugar Bowl win four years ago? Has it been a "joke" for quite some time.
You want to demand excellence, but you come off looking like an ill-informed child.

|1 week 4 days ago||Who are the trust fund babies?||
Who on the team are trust fund babies? How do those numbers compare to previous years?
James Ross III?
Which of the guys on the team can I get a lone from?
|1 week 4 days ago||INitiated by millionaires||
So, Millionaires are starting a class warfare with trust fund babies? Which one is more entitled?
Man, I feel bad for Foote's kids....if he avoids the pitfalls of NFL players and money...his best hope is for them to be "trust fund babaies." In that case, he will probably spit in their face and call them soft.
|1 week 4 days ago||Taken down?||
If we took down all the similar arguments based on the "eye test" and how people feel about the team, there would be little left here. This isn't a scientific journal and no one here acts like it is. If you have an opinion that Peppers is going to be awesome and looks great in the spring game, that stays. If you say the players look slow and lumbering and must be coached that way in S&C, well... you gotta have some facts. What sets do they use? How can you quantify the slowness? No wanser. Fine. Deletion.
|1 week 4 days ago||Sticky?||
That sticky is "an ad-hoc way of tracking what threads and comments get removed. Mods that remove a thread should post the title here with a brief reason as to why the thread is gone."
1. The thread is almost exclusively posts by mods of what they deleted. Its a mod discussion, not a poster discussion.
2. It doesn't appear on the front page (unless you open up a category at top). I didn't even know it existed. It is a dark corner of this site.
3. It doesn't even contain the deleted threads. Even if people wanted to discuss in the sticky, they aren't able to access the topic of conversation.
4. It appears to be mainly just a bulliten board of warnings on what gets posts deleted. It is not about "discussing" why it happens.
That is not a public form to discuss things.
|1 week 4 days ago||Not really.||
Disappointment in this site doesn't equate with feeling "upset" or "hurt" about it. Just sad to see how things "progressed." It's like seeing an old friend fall on hard times. I am not hurt or angry about it, just sympathetic.
|1 week 4 days ago||Public discourse||
I understand our point. But, raising something in private hardly makes much of a point about the failure to raise concerns in public.
|1 week 4 days ago||Echo Chamber||
This place is private. There is no freedom of anything. There doesnt have to be.
It is run by an closely-knit group and having "open discussions" is not a primary concern of theirs. You must follow the Mgoblog group think or you will be marginalized or deleted.
The only way to survive here is to spend most waking hours checking the site (don't want to repost). You also need to use board-created lingo exclusively (yeah, that MOON game thing is really quite a nickname). You also don't want to disagree with a few popular die-hards who are always on here.
Its sad. Its not an open forum. Just a place to go along with the group.
It used to be a little different back in the day, but Brian got mad at a group of regulars and made the decision he was getting too old to put up with open dissension. That mindset has trickeled down to the regulars. Its too bad that banished group had to be such jerks, but we all pay for it now.
|1 week 4 days ago||Dozen times before??||
I frequent the board on an almost daily basis and did not see it. Its pathetic that someone gets negged for having other crap to do. That's a very weak reflection of the type of person who belongs on here (i.e., someone without much of a life).
|1 week 4 days ago||Clearly||
Not worthy of DELETION. You may disagree, but c'mon. Don't be afraid to discuss.
