|1 day 5 hours ago||Does that even matter?||
He was hired to do a job and failed. If he wants to work as a counselor that's fine, but as the face of the entire university making millions of dollars? Not so fine.
I had to go to a dinner party tonight with the Mrs. and just watched the game. I'm drunk and angry but more than anything I'm tired. Tired of my school being a joke. Watching the ND game finally broke my spirit but watching tonight made me throw up. Fire Hoke. Hire Tressel.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Is that a typo or are we now referring to Dave Brandon as||
Because that is awesome.
|2 days 20 hours ago||We DON'T know where we are||
and it doesn't seem like we know where we are going (except towards irrelevancy). That is the only thing that is clear to me. After the ND game, my spirit was finally broken. I don't understand how people can be so optimistic still.
|2 weeks 17 hours ago||"At the first sign"?||
"We don't allow failure and call for changes at the first sign"
It's been failure since 2008. This will be year four with Hoke and things have gotten progressively worse.
|2 weeks 20 hours ago||Did that guy from West Virginia consistently beat||
big time programs? Did he go into Georgia and manhandle the Dogs at home (who later won their division), or VT, Oregon, Oklahoma? I don't think he did.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I'm not proud of it but I would hire Tressel.||
Everyone needs a second chance. And B1G championships!!!
I know it would NEVER happen, but can you imagine the reactions to that hire?
Ohio State scheduled a home/home with Notre Dame? Well, we just hired Jim Tressel! Suck it, Ohio!
Imagine the ratings on The Game with Tressel vs. Meyer. My head is about to explode.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||As I posted in another thread,||
Chris Petersen! PLEASE!!!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Petersen was already beating the big programs.||
Imagine what he could do with even better athletes. That was an awesome program.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I want Chris Petersen to come to Michigan.||
I've wanted him for years. I loved Bosie St.
What good is all the money Brandon has made for the program if he can't spend it?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Blue Barron, Which one are you?||
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I can understand that,||
but look at our record vs. any decent team 2008.
Ohio State 1 - 5
Michigan St. 1 - 5
Penn St 0 - 4
Iowa 1 - 4
SEC 0 - 2 (Florida being from 2007 season)
At least we had the Irish (6-2 since 2006). My point being that it wasn't so much that OSU was great, it's that we just haven't been very good.
I sure hope this year is the year it finally turns around.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||This topic has already been beaten to death, but...||
When our conference wins against other major conferences, it makes us look better. That could easily be the difference between going to a playoff game and not.
Also, and I'd have to think about this for a while, I might hate the SEC as much/more than I hate Ohio State. At least in the last 8 years.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||There are too many comments||
between where we are now and where I need to be. It's too late for me.
However, I will be purchasing those shirts very soon. I'm glad you posted that tonight.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||"This is so tired."||
Perhaps you'd prefer some camo Michigan gear or something equally gaudy?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I like it!||
Simple and tasteful. You'll never work at Adidas.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I love BTN!||
I don't know what I'd do during the rest of the year if I didn't have classic B1G games to keep me going.
Is that sad?

|4 weeks 6 days ago||I laughed out loud when I read your comment.||
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Portland is a cool place.||
The only real issue with Maine is the lack of economy (and homelessness in Portland).
Maine has a high tax rate while having little industry to support it. Making money is where LA comes out ahead. That is my dilemma.
How do you like Portland, OR? Does it really rain THAT much?
|8 weeks 1 day ago||That's cool.||
I'm in southern coastal Maine right now and am deciding on moving to Portland, ME or Los Angeles, CA.
I don't know any other Michigan fans in my area.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Maineandblue,||
Do you live in Maine currently? If so, where?
|10 weeks 6 days ago||That's exactly what Nigel Bethel II was thinking, as well.||
"some people don't learn anything until they get a black eye."
|19 weeks 5 days ago||I still get upset thinking about||
Rutgers and Maryland joining the B1G.
In my opinion, everything B1G related should be in Chicago.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||I live less than a mile from the Atlantic Ocean...||
and am embarrassed to have Rutgers in our conference.
I still can't believe that happened.
|32 weeks 3 days ago||I would MUCH rather see the game played by their avatars.||
No offense MGrowOld.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||Doesn't matter.||
He'll have another account up that same day and rack up 500 points his first week. I've noticed lots of new accounts made in the last few weeks with more points accumulated in two weeks than I have in however long I've been a "valued" member. Perhaps I should start commenting on everything that's posted, regardless of whether or not I have anything to say.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||You might want to sit this one out, Champ.||
But I'll give you an "A" for effort and and upvote you.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Great Hire!||
Yes! After such a rotten 2013 season, I did not expect to be this excited about Michigan football for a while. I was afraid we'd just be complacent with the coaching staff and bask in our mediocrity. What a RELIEF!!!
Now if we can only get a homerun hire for our new Oline coach!
|36 weeks 4 days ago||If you like RPG's than you will love Skyrim.||
I've spent thousands of hours playing Morrowind as it would crash often and eventually REALLY crashed leaving all my saved files not accessible. I then played Oblivion for around another thousand hours. The game play and overall experience in Oblivion was much better than Morrowind.
I've probably put in close to 300 hours into Skyrim. At this point, my character is pretty juiced and is at level 58. However, I'm not really playing to "beat" the game or even advance the story at all. I know what I have to do and could easily do it, but instead just roam the countryside looking at the beautiful scenery and enjoying the peaceful music. I play the game to escape from my own life for a few hours here and there. I really enjoy it. I will finish the main quest soon enough but there is no hurry. The beauty of this series is that you can enjoy your journey and not just the accomplishment of "winning". There are so many things you can do to improve your character and thousands of random tasks and quests to go on. It will take more than a few days to really get into it. I wasn't a fan of Morrowind at first but was too bored at the time not to play it. As time went on, it became one of my favorite games of all time.
For anyone complaining about Skyrim, know that this series is the industry standard and won Game of the Year. While some people may like other games more, most people interested in this genre do not. Give it time and realize that you haven't even scratched the surface yet.
I was at about level 20 and I thought I had a really good handle of the game. I went home for Thanksgiving and found that my brother was on level 72 and I really didn't know what I was doing. There is a lot in the details.
