Strange when 40 year old men wear 18 year old boys' jerseys like some sort of middle-school cheerleader wearing her boyfriends away jersey to a high school football game. Do you wear your cargo shorts and lesbian adventure sandals with the jersey to complete the tri-fecta? Or are you spicing it up with the flat-brim and white sunglasses look?
|1 year 1 day ago||Well, if Hoke doesn't work||
Well, if Hoke doesn't work out this year, I want Michigan to put some of that money going to all the news sports fields to good use and get Saban up here. Texas will pay $100 million? Michigan will pay $120 million. That will show the college football world Michigan is going to football seriously. That's a signal.
And if Saban's not available, Miles.

Oh man don't accidentally google that at work. Whoa.
|1 year 1 day ago||No, but Wolverine Devotee||
No, but Wolverine Devotee found one and uses it nightly. It's just re-runs of the Fab Five, the 97 season, and uniform changes.... all climaxing in the "Hello Heisman" money shot.
|1 year 1 day ago||Care to refute any of my||
Care to refute any of my arguments directly or would you rather stay on the sidelines to speak from there? I'd suggest you are doing the latter, and just as Mary Sue should have done.
|1 year 1 day ago||I heard Sterling is paying a||
I heard Sterling is paying a law firm and private investigators to look into all of the NBA owners to see what they can dig up. I hope this devolves into an absolute war.
Though, I'd wager bet Cuban's closet is full of only genius.

Someone just ask him what a bundle of sticks is called and get it on video. We can start the Twitter war with just as much justification.

That firepit was kind of a piece of shit anyways.
|1 year 1 day ago||Well then it's time someone||
Well then it's time someone took back the horseshit measures of public opinion the media and businesses are using these days. Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest. Bunch of unemployed narccists and teenagers are the group these businesses are judging public opinion by. I don't know a damn person who was actually offended by half of the shit the media twitters on about. Bunch of primadonna gender studies grads making decisions for these companies PR departments and in the newsroom.
|1 year 1 day ago||Geez, throw a few more||
Geez, throw a few more questions out there, Nancy Grace.
What combos are most likely? Pizzeria pretzel. Probably whatever Hoke prefers.
Stribling and Lewis got some spring hype. Does anyone get the opposite of hype or do they just not get hype during the spring?
Ramon and Blake are vets? Can they take a look at my dog? He keeps rubbing his butt on the family room carpet and now it looks like a four lane high way.
Peppers has some hype coming in. So does Onions.
Who plays the most in all likelihood? A teenager watching reruns of Christina Aguillera's "Durty" video.
Thoughts on safety other than Wilson? I prefer Rawlings helmets and some Louisville SLugger products.
Should be a good group. Is there any bad group? Group-er? Group-ie? Group-think?

So make sure you don't beat your wife, drive drunk, use racial slurs, or offend feminists when Twitter is having a slow day?
Issues are judged not by their value, but by the number of times they are retweeted. ~ Public_97_Ivy
|1 year 1 day ago||You do understand the||
You do understand the comparison, correct? I do understand that the NFL and NBA are different leagues, though they do hold similar positions in society and are held to similar standards by the general public. Funny that "Redskins" is a perfectly fine franchise name, but being a cringe-worthy old man is the single worst racial abuse of the past decade, judging by the penalty.
|1 year 1 day ago||Funny how quick the media was||
Funny how quick the media was to completely ignore the fact that he's likely senile and losing his mind. They found a convenient white, Jewish old man that was easy to hate. These leagues apparently have no problem having TEAMS with more racist names than the words Donald used, but will throw the old Jewish man and force the sale of his property.
|1 year 1 day ago||He's probably had Alzheimer's||
He's probably had Alzheimer's already. Surprised no one has brought this up as a defense. Have you heard him speak? It's barely intelligible.
|1 year 1 day ago||Great, so saying a few mean||
Great, so saying a few mean things in private is apparently $2.5 million and the sale of a billion dollar team worse than risking people's lives. http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/06/10/report-6-8-game-suspension-expected-for-colts-owner-jim-irsay/ I could understand the penalty more if it went with the discrimination lawsuits which actually hurt people, not some nasty words.
|1 year 1 day ago||"Thanks, old rich white men.||
"Thanks, old rich white men. Thanks a lot." Hey. I'll take back Coach Carr any day.
And let's not let Mary Sue Coleman escape without taking her share of the last decade's fiasco.
|1 year 1 day ago||When the hell do I get my Big||
When the hell do I get my Big Ten Champions shirt then? Hoke has had one fluke good year with Coach Rodriguez's players and managed to shit the bed since then. Ooooohhh recruiting rankings! Tell me when that matters in November and December. Michigan couldn't rush the ball forward for TWO STRAIGHT WEEKS and nearly lost to what, three MACish teams in the first weeks of the season?
Simply being a "Michigan Man" (not even a damn graduate, just being a position coach for a few years doesn't earn you that title in my book) does not buy you unlimited time. You know what other alumni don't donate money? Ones who see the Michigan brand and tradition driven into the fucking ground by Dave Brandon and his incompetent hires.
Ohio State got the University of Florida's old coach. We got San Diego State's. That should tell you enough about this program's problems. Dave Brandon and Brady Hoke have watched this team drop from a 1b level program, to a 2b level program. We got our asses handed to us on a national stage by a mediocre Big 12 team in Kansas State. Didn't even look like we wanted to be there. Alumna like me who pay big money to go see a bowl game don't donate to programs who look like they just want to go home. Great job Coach Hoke, you've really earned your top-5 coaching salary.

Have you seen what Coach Rodriguez has done at ARIZONA? Something tells me it isn't all Coach Rodriguez's fault it didn't work out here... in fact, I lay a minority of the blame at his feet.
|1 year 1 day ago||Yet another one of our former||
Yet another one of our former President's failings is a roughly half-decade of continuously lower rankings in almost every ranking I came across. Note, I did not say LOW, I said LOWER. Apparently Mary Sue's greatest accomplishment as President was her ability to accept accept checks written by numerous super wealthy graduates. Besides drinking herself into a near stupor, it isn't obvious she was doing much else. Besides of course implementing the smoking ban at the behest of her other part-time employer, Johnson and Johnson (because being President of UM is apparently such an easy job you can maintain a position on one or two other executive boards. Don't let service to Michigan stand in the way of pocketing another few hundred thousand for "administerial" roles.)

It's now 5:30. Still waiting.

Well thank God Brady Hoke is still a great recruiter, right?
|1 year 1 week ago||Uhhh the Antanov was at about||
Uhhh the Antanov was at about 21,000 feet. "Ukraine Defence Minister Valeriy Heletey said the plane was flying at an altitude of about 6,500 metres" http://www.aljazeera.com/news/europe/2014/07/ukrainian-military-transport-plane-shot-down-201471423420802306.html
Not that much under a commercial airliner. Plus, I'm not familiar with the geography, but shooting from a mountain that is ~6,000+21,000range=28,000.
Ever wonder why the one weapon the US wouldn't give to the Syrian "rebels" (*cough* now ISIS) were long-range anti-air despite Assad's main tool being aircraft? It'd sure be bad to have a US anti-air missile take down an American plane in Baghdad.
And remember, the Ukrainian military is split, those saying Ukrainians couldn't "teach" themselves to fire these things? They were formerly IN the USSR.

Ann Arbor is going to start to look like Jacksonville, Florida with all the desperate pleadings for people to buy season tickets. And the schedule of promotions and games is going to remind me of a Single A baseball team.

He was suspended for three games. Where is her punishment (or even discussion thereof) for punching him first?

Thanks, but I'll pray for ALL involved in the Middle East.

Annnnnnd Israel just invaded Gaza. Wonderful Thursday to everyone.
|1 year 1 week ago||Video shows that she hit him||
Video shows that she hit him first, he gave her a medium-weight "pop" immediately after then backed away. Honestly didn't look like something that would break a bone. And the girl looked to be almost exactly the same size as him (he's a CB, she's a basketball player). Certainly not one of those "BUT HE HIT A GIRL!!!" instances.
|1 year 1 week ago||An even better quote: “I love||
An even better quote: “I love fireworks, but not at a Michigan football game. We are not Comerica Park or the Super Bowl or Disney World or a circus, and the important point is we shouldn't try to be. At a certain point, enough is enough.”
|1 year 1 week ago||At least two people get it.||
At least two people get it. We're there to watch a FOOTBALL GAME. We're not all five years old and don't need to constantly have flashing lights in front of our eyes to stay awake.
|1 year 1 week ago||Christ. How many tickets do||
Christ. How many tickets do they still need to sell? Are we this badly in danger of missing out on 100,000? AFTER touchdowns? Why? For what purpose? Are we going to get a smoke machine too? A mascot?
