add another item to the pile as to why this was a bad idea
|1 day 1 hour ago||I had forgotten how much||
that call on Burke pissed me off.... until i just watched it again. Seriously furious. I have no idea how players can deal with it. I don't have the anger management to play sports at that level. I'd be barking about it years later.
|9 weeks 2 hours ago||I have one that I bought at||
I have one that I bought at MDen the night before the game. I wore it to GameDay the next morning and then to the game that night.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Have you tried....||
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Video is fantastic...||
I have a little guy.. and that's exactly what he'd do... it's funny.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Frankly||
The question was do you want Harbaugh at Michigan or Oakland.
He only had one possible answer. Its not like he could say Oakland. That would be a disaster. He'd be throwing his own coach under the bus.
Charles certainly knows the game (even outside of his own bubble) but he in no way came across as someone that had the slightest clue what would happen at UM outside of what national media has been saying.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||We don't necessarily||
need it... but if we could get one of these major highly ranked kids to come, I feel like it would open the flood gates... we're playing like North Carolina and Duke at this point... now the kids need to feel like coming here can be just as good.. and as 'cool' as going there.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||I realize I'm in the minority||
But I think there should be more bowl games and any schools that can agree on a time or place and get a sponsor, why not? Other than people's eyes, what does it hurt? It's not like anyone is forcing anyone to watch.
Bowl games mean nothing to the grand scheme of the college world. I'm sure the student-athletes would love to play one more game. I'd certainly watch a Michigan game in December, no matter the record.
Teams that are 5-7 shouldn't be denied practice time that other schools get. Clearly the 5-7 teams need that work and have younger guys. This would allow them a few more weeks to see what they have in them. (Brady Hoke jokes aside). The arguement that the other teams earned that practice time and a 5-7 did not, does hold water. BUT... if the 5-7 team plays December 15th... and the 7-5 team plays December 28th... they get extra practice time anyway.
I just don't see what it hurts... kind of like the new CBI tournament in college hoops.

I never once said Dan would attack or go out of his way to do anything... I'm saying I fail to see how going on a national show and once again facing an interview about most things negative.. helps Brady or Michigan.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||as the OP||
I don't see where I wrote Dan would attack him... never wrote it...never believed he would...
What I'm saying is, the questions will be there and it's a headache that can be avoided... and there's no way Brady is able to sell the good of Michigan football over the bad right now.

I had some people chanting asshole as I walked in... No big deal. Everyone was polite inside the stadium and no one sad a word to my group as we left.

Yes, I'm sure I'm taking it to seriously... He's not the first 'athlete' to bash fans and won't be the last... And I'm sure I've rooted for some of them... And I'm sure many more feel that way without actually going public with it.

I'm going and now I wish I wasn't. But not because of the obvious reasons, (losing, AD, Hoke). I was going to keep supporting Team135. But when I woke up and read a current player feel the need to get on Twitter and call life-long fans 'irrelevant'. I can't support that. Whether he was obviously just frustrated or not.
|21 weeks 22 hours ago||Yeah, I can hope..||
but realistically there's a lot of people setting themselves up for disappointment.
Anything can happen, but when the day comes and UM introduces its next head coach and it's not this guy? It could just get ugly again.
I just think so many people have this name and this name only in their heads and whoever it ends up being, won't get the chance.... because many will have seen it as a failure from day one... not the guy we really wanted.
I'm probably going to be guilty of that as well... as I look at the names, there's only one that I say I'd be willing to pitch in to get...and that's Jim.
I hope there's some secret formula we can all take that will allow us to be happy with the man who actually takes this job...
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Easy... Seven Year Ache (Roseanne Cash)||
|22 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, I don't get it.||
I understand it, frustration and all, but I don't personally, as myself, get it.
I'm a Rams fan in the NFL... So it's been a bad decade for me and football, but it's one of two things I love in this life that doesn't very often happen... I'll leave the other up to imagination.
But a Michigan football game is a Michigan football game. I don't live that way anymore, so spending money normally doesn't happen anyway, but I simply cannot imagine there ever being a time a Michigan football game is on and I'm not watching it.
I am maybe numb to the losing at this point, with the Rams and UM, but I'm going to be in front of my TV, or the following week in the stands at Rutgers with my UM hat and shirt on and rooting for the Maize and Blue to surprise me.
I can do all of that and very much agree that changes need to be made. I can support what's there and will just have to hope that someone smartens up and helps me root for a winner.
But those kids picked a school I love and they go out and bust their asses for it. That to me, says I should support those who love something as much as I do.
(Also, as much as I felt like Utah was going to beat us, I feel we will beat Minny)
|23 weeks 2 days ago||I have no idea what this||
adds to the discussion other than compare contrast...
Living in Central New York, I became a Season Ticket Holder for Orange football... no, not because I care a lick about Syracuse, but because the whole season is $99. Games versus Clemson, Florida State... it's a great deal. No PSL or anything just a straight $99.
We don't really get gifts... we got a free ticket to the home opener this year for each season tickets we had... but that was Villanova.
We also get priority to buy away games and basketball games.. which is good because Syracuse Basketball is NOT Syracuse Football....(Althought I don't root or really care for etiher, it's a great environment for hoops.)
Also the football games really have no re-sale value... because tickets are so cheap to begin with... depsite the Carrier Dome only holding 50K for football.
I realize Syracuse football isn't Michigan football, but I thought I'd share what another school does.

If everyone fell in love with Tracy, the ending, planned years in advance, would have been ruined.
People are killing this finale and I get the whole wedding theme was dragged on beyond belief, but there's NO way this show could have ended with Ted and the mother happily ever after. It would have gone against everything the show had done for however long it was on.
This show was always going to end with Ted and Robin together and it happened. I will never get why critics killed last night.

when people, I heard Jay Mohr bashing kickers this week... saying they don't deserve to be considered.
It's a position and in terms of momentum and game winning pressure... can be huge over the course of a game or season.
The arguement they don't tackle or score TD's is stupid.
If it's a position on the field, the very best should be honored just like any other position.
This is a step in the right direction... much like relief pitchers/closers in baseball or the DH or pinch hitters... If the sport has a roster spot for them and they are very best and do what they are asked to do... the hall should enshrine them.
Now are too many people being enshrined?... that's a different argument.

But factor in what could/should be a loss to Arizona and we're looking at a 4-loss NON-Conference. Even if we go 12-6 in B1G play, which I would think 11-7 even 10-8 is probably just as possible... plus the conference tourney.... we're a 10-13 loss team. A tournament run will be almost impossible, ALMOST, coming from no better than a what... 8 seed?

|1 year 23 weeks ago||From what||
I understand. The AAC, which controls this game, doesn't have a reverse mirror in its ESPN / ABC contract, like the B1G. So I would doubt that its mirrored. Either Texas/KSt or UM/UConn, but not mirrored to both.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||It's official.||
UConn announced just now on Twitter.. 8pm kickoff next week.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||I take it you are not going||
Noon is horrific for travel.... Leaving Saturday and getting some tailgate time and and a night game is perfect for me.. But bc I'm going.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||I think...||
I think the AAC and ABC were waiting on Texas. But after getting smoked again, they'll likely regionally split the night game next week... And I bet it's 8pm.

the AAC conference that picks the time.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||ABC||
is showing ND vs. Purdue this week at 8pm... so I guess UM vs. UConn at 8pm ..even if on ESPN 2 isn't so crazy.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||It better be 8pm...||
it at least gives me the ability to not have to worry about traveling Friday... and can do it all Saturday.
A noon kickoff means having to totally figure out work stuff on Friday... and leave Friday.
This AAC conference is already a joke....

I would love for my Rams to pick him up. He can play QB in my goal to go situations. No team kicks more FG that St. Louis..( I have zero facts on this, just my miserable observations.). But first and goal from the 3... No Steven Jackson. Why not let him read option and see what happens.

We can complain about the cupcakes all day long... but I have YET to see anything that says a SOS ranking is better than a win-loss record.
We can't play 9-10 conference games and expect to be in the national title picture...especially if we play Ohio ever year and MSU gets Rutgers/Maryland
Not until the overall landscape is evened out, and teams like LSU and Bama stop playing their cupcakes.. or conference champions are guaranteed a shot in the playoff.
Lets say Alabama was our only loss... Had we not played Bama, yet instead say NTM, then we are in the title hunt... but because we aren't in the ESSSS EEE CEEE.. that Bama game ended our MNC hopes.
Is the goal here to play games fans want to see, win just a B1G championship or to be in the hunt for a national title?
Don't get me wrong. I love a B1G title, but who doesn't DESIRE a NC? I'm sorry, but right now, and even when we get into this 4-team playoff.. CUPCAKES are the only path to a national title.

Lineman are not allowed to cross the line of scrimmage before a pass is thrown across the line of scrimmage.. UNLESS they are being contacted by a defender...
Unless a Rams defender is wearing Turf Green and is in front of a weather map.. that's the exact definition of Illegal man downfield.
Former Ref Jerry Markbreit responding to Chicago Tribune readers:
On the illegal man down field penalty, how far down the field is a lineman allowed to go while the quarterback is behind the line of scrimmage? Is there anything else affecting this call? --Max Salk, Northbrook, Ill.
Under NFL rules, it is a foul when an ineligible offensive player, including a T-formation quarterback, prior to a legal forward pass advances beyond the line of scrimmage after losing contact with an opponent at the line of scrimmage. The guidline for officials to use is the offending player must be more than one yard beyond the line of scrimmage prior to the pass.
Clearly he is past the LOS and clearly he is past the 9. Refs blew it.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Not going to start an||
Not going to start an internet arguement.. but if you are telling me is isn't over the 9 yard line.. you might want to get your vison checked.
Even Detroit Lions Film Study says he's illegally downfield.
But you guys posting the Calvin picture are right... that one takes the cake
All these things should even out somehow by season's end.. it's just tough for other teams especially the Rams, who need something positive, to get hosed a few times down the stretch against a great team.
Not everything needs to be looked at through Lions glasses.
But where Dunbar was .. way back in the endzone is SOOO bad he deserves more punishment than anyone.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||2 minute warning||
Look, Stafford deserves credit sure... But The clock should have went to the two minute warning. By forcing the Rams to run third down before the warning, it saves the Lions their final timeout for offense. Without it, the Lions don't get to use the middle of the field on offense as easily. It changes the defense. And if there's a longer play in the middle.. It takes five seconds for the line to get back set up and a snap.

but simply a concern... That Ke$ha hat would not ever be officially authenticated... it has zero consistencies with her signature... I'm not bashing the charity or the cause or even saying it's not real... I trust you all have very good people...
But an authenticator would look at that hat and not be able to say it's real..
Maybe it was signed in a rush or maybe she had time to sign it the way she'd like.. but it doesn't look like any of her signatures that connect and have rounded s's... and her K never goes down like that.. it goes across and connects to the $...
Maybe that is why it's not selling.

|3 years 14 weeks ago||Exactly||
I couldn't have said that better myself.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Who created the "reality tv" moment?||
Zook did... by acting lke a moron and walking out. It's his job to talk with the media and answer those questions.
He could have brushed it off or answered it in a different way. ZOOK WALKED OUT. He created the drama..
Coaches are asked all the time about job status and it's never talked about unless the coach blows up and walks out. FACT
Coaches are paid a lot of money to represent the university and that means stepping up to the plate and taking the heat that comes with all the money and glory.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||My point is..||
Zook clearly knew that's a hot topic... Something a lot of people care about and want to know about... that's why he mentioned it. Those paying for season tickets deserve to know the direction of the program and deserve to know about Zook and his ability to do the job.
He needs to answer the question, even if it's just a "I really only want to talk about the kids who are busting their butts for me."
Walking out only makes him look weaker, like he can't handle the job, or doesn't care enough to do the requirements.
He needs to man up and answer to his losses.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||As a member||
of the media in a different city...
You have to ask that question... and if he walks out, he walks out...and it looks bad on him.
It's not about "Shannon" trying to make herself part of the story, it's about giving people information that they want to know.
What's the focus of Illinios Fooball right now for fans reading a newspaper or watching a TV??... and you have to include casual fans as well...not just people like us that live and die this stuff.
TV and newspapers are still a business...there are not enough people like us that care about a lone play or player enough to get people's attention. They, a majority, care about the overall general idea of Illinois football and where it and if Ron Zook is the man to lead them.
And the question on a lot of people's minds is if can he lead Illinois to wins.
Clearly he is not confident in himself to do that... and that's obvious by him walking out rather than facing what he needs to face as the head of a major college football program.

Not trying to be a downer... But if the kid doesn't know for sure yet, why is he rushing the announcement?.. He's got plenty of time.
I just want to see him pick the best place, and obviously I hope it's AA, but if he's not ready yet, it's okay to wait a bit.
I guess on the flip side though the outside pressures and the chance of missing out on a spot (at Duke) could be too much.
He also talked about his parents getting hammered by questions and coaches.
So, I guess I don't truly understand the pressure, but I hope he's 100 percent on the school he picks.

and went to M-Den and got that signed... i was there early enough to avoid the long lines...
I might add the book and the picture i got of him and I shaking hands.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||quick summary.||
Night games…how much influence do you have and want?? once a year brady would like… but maybe not later in the year or during the traditional games.
Running offense not your style??… really fortunate to have Denard. Al Borges has done a lot in a lot of places. Didn’t want to put a square peg in round hole with Denard. But will move to their style eventually.
Denard used to playing under center.
Any NFL interest?... Loves where he’s at and the plan is to be in AA for a long time. No place he’d rather be. wants to help kids learn and show them life skills and it’s why he’s coaching.
How do you keep kids especially stars.. away from boosters and other problems?.. feels bad for kids, it’s great they can get a degree and can play at Michigan, but it’s up to them to keep character and integrity. He can’t protect them from everything, but he has 115 sons and he’s going to try to look after them the best he can.
Colin says game is greatest game he’s ever seen. Does Brady know how good it is when he’s playing in it? Blinders on… making decisions. Wants to put players in position to win the game. 2am on Sunday Brady finally realized that was a heck of a football game.
What’s the number one , rank of importance with conference??? Beat Ohio is #1. Greatest rivalry. Michigan State is awfully important. Take care of those two things things and you can find yourself in a good place.
Going into Ohio to get kids feels good right??? Coach Bo said if one thing is your not playing against them.. passionate rivalry, well coached. Great to get Ohio guys in AA.
Looking like Mike Golic??? Brady says he heard that and sounds like Chris Farley motivational speaker, but he’s afraid he looks like him too.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||I was in it for 10||
seconds.. found myself.. and as I tagged it .. it froze... I didn't get any emails, so I'll assume it didn't work.. trying to open it again, but it just loads forever and never opens.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||Question on roster||
Didn't want to start a whole new thread, but I don't see a #6 on the listed roster and was wondering if anyone knew if someone changed jersey numbers.
|3 years 24 weeks ago||863||
863.. 862 was taken
|3 years 24 weeks ago||Total yards||
|3 years 25 weeks ago||I'll take 756||
|3 years 25 weeks ago||On my way to||
The Carrier Dome right now... Should be interesting to see how Syracuse plays after last year's surprising season.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Well now they do...||
way to go tell everyone... haha..
I agree... although I think we'll see less designed Denard runs... but more of him scrambling when lanes are open and receivers are not.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||wow... five comments||
at the same time about one screw up... what's the record for that?
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Great...||
Now if I want to catch the '09 game I'm all good.
Just messing with you... But really that link/map is two years old.

Like a four year old heading out for Halloween in dad's helmet there.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||I'll finish that thought by prefacing||
That I would never ask a player for more than one auto. Only need one. I might have 10 helmets, but it's for different players not to get a player 10 times. And I never sell anything. It's all stuff for my man cave.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Not everybody||
Who collects mini helmets sells them. I have about 200 in my man cave. All signed by someone.. Most Michigan... I bring a lot of mini helmets to things like this... (not this one in particular, I dint attend this year) but I enjoy getting them and saying hello to people who have brought me great joy over the years.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||I bought two ND tix on ebay||
I've never been screwed before, but it only takes one time. And if this is the time so help anyone and everyone on that day and the decades to follow.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||As an Oswego grad||
I can tell you that partying is all there is to do. 50 inches of snow a weekend would drive anyone to drink and when you're in college, you do it right.

|3 years 32 weeks ago||question about stubhub/ebay purchase||
For the ND game.. if you can buy a ticket in say, for example, section 99 row 143.. and you can find another one in same section and same row... is that a good idea.. you can never see the actual seats.. so it's a guessing game.. I've never tried going this route before... but prices will only get higher..
I hate to the be guy that tries to do that.. and then try and still sit with his buddy... it's a dick move.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Pre-game festivities...||
I've been to several games, but they've always been in and out... I'm spending a few days in AA for the ND game.. wondering what the school normally does or if there's any must go to events.
Thursday - Sunday.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||And Grizzly Adams||
Did have a beard
|3 years 40 weeks ago||wow...||
I don't have stats.. but it does seem we get an awful lot of road games in this challenge.
|3 years 50 weeks ago||my bad..||
I mis-read the ESPN recap... But he's got quite a few wins in lower levels of College ball too..
|3 years 50 weeks ago||good point..||
I'd also like to see bubble teams win to improve our seeding.
|3 years 50 weeks ago||Hell YA!!!||
WELL SAID SIR
|3 years 50 weeks ago||1,000th||
win as a head coach today too... CONGRATS COACH!!!!!
|3 years 50 weeks ago||It's not about the points...||
it's about feeling good baby...and sharing the love with everyone else who stuck by this UNREAL TEAM
|3 years 50 weeks ago||DANCING SHOES!!!||
|4 years 4 days ago||no one is saying||
give them an open lane.. that's your taking comments and twisting them. I'm saying force them to shoot earlier.... and don't put yourself in a position where you CANNOT DECIDE THE OUTCOME.
Michigan played the final 13 seconds hoping to win.. .instead of manning up taking the win.
We let the Wisconsin win the game instead of taking it and winning it ourselves...
No team down by 2 with 13 ticks left will hold on for last shot.. they'll put up something with 7 or 8.. and if they score we have a shot to WIN IT. if they don't score.. they foul us...(yes the 0-6 is disconcerning, but again... GIVE ME THE BALL TO WIN IT.)
There's no guarantee that they'll score when they shoot with 6 seconds left... just like there's no guarantee they'll score with .1 seconds left.
But with six seconds left.. it's more likely their score is a 2-pointer and IT GIVES US TIME TO FREAKING WIN THE GAME ON THE OTHER END... even if it is a three... with no time left, it's pretty much a guarantee it's a 3-point shot.. and if it goes in... we're screwed because we let the other team dictate the finish. it's playing like you're hoping to win instead of going out and getting that win.
To me.. letting someone else decide your fate.. letting someone else decide if you are to win or lose.... instead of having the ball with a chance to put it away yourself... is the wrong choice.
Guys like Jordan and Kobe and what not... you think they're happy to sit back and let someone take that last shot.. on their team or not.. NO.. those guys want the ball in their hands with 1 second left.
|4 years 4 days ago||It's not so much the strategy...||
the guy hit a lucky shot... what can you do...
my issue is with the philosophy.
I like alot of people I'm sure with 30 ticks left... felt like we were going to foul down to the last shot..
okay... but with 13.6 left, I looked at my buddy and said we need to let them play this out now... don't foul again.
If they tie it up.. so be it.. maybe we'll have three seconds to put up a despiration shot...
I just disagree with the philosophy of letting your opponent decide your fate. put the ball in my hands to win the game.
on the flip side.. they very well could have held on to the ball for the final 13.6 seconds.. and still won it... but my guess is they would have shot with some time left in case of a miss.. so they'd still be able to foul and have time.
|4 years 6 days ago||maybe...||
but it always comes back... you can mark it on your calendar.. F#%king winter SUCKS

Can't hit a curveball, what makes you think he can tackle?
|4 years 4 weeks ago||Posbang in honor of||
Zack Novak baby!!!!
|4 years 4 weeks ago||distance||
will be the biggest factor.
|4 years 4 weeks ago||if grades are such a big issue with Rawls||
is no one concerned about his ability to stay eligible?
|4 years 4 weeks ago||Sure||
he could probably play at a lot of D-1 schools.. but you have to imagine D-1 schools wanting to take a kid who'll be a junior.. much like a JUCO... some schools don' t like to do that...
he would be forced to sit a year.. and that would be two years away from his last start...
Many things point to D-1AA or whatever it is called now... but it wouldn't shock anyone to see him at a D-1 school... or a BSC team... there's just many factors against it.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||Scoring droughts...||
We play horrible basketball for extended stretches EVERY game... it's because every shot is from 20 feet... and teams are taking away Darius' right hand... and that's all we have.
I'm kind of tired of it... every year Belein's been here we've seen the same thing... scoreless for 6, 7 or 8 minutes.. 15 point halves... games in the 40's or 50's... HORRIFIC shooting and nothing inside... It's clear Darius needs to use the left hand.. but he doesn't... It's just frustrating to watch and root for.
Our football team was starting 90000 freshman after year three and the coach is gone...
This guy is starting 90000 freshman after four years and he needs time?...
I'm not here to say whether or not Belein is the right guy... I'm not DB.. but the hypocracy of this board is sometimes annoying.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||if you are 100%||
committed.. why allow someone come see you? It's a waste of time right?.. I would say they seem more 99.9% committed than 100%.
I mean if you were going there for an official.. why not.. free trip... but this is just a waste for everyone's time for someone 100%.
|4 years 5 weeks ago||There's actually about 10 guys||
that could be names of "interest"...
I thought Karlos Williams was FSU all the way... guess I was not 100% correct...
If Hoke could just steal one of these guys I'd feel better... I need that sort of gratification... warranted or not.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||isn't he chasing||
those two kids on the DL for Tennessee though?... Two offers and reports of no interest
|4 years 7 weeks ago||I'll take||
A pos bang... Gruden too please
|4 years 7 weeks ago||I would positively||
|4 years 7 weeks ago||don't you mean||
the Coach is Wrong?
|4 years 7 weeks ago||it is for humor||
I really have no idea what I meant by more serious... I guess maybe just things that could actually happen in the real world without embarassment... some sort of grand entrance to ignite the crisler crowd or something...
But the embarassment answers are the best... because they are absolutely hilarious.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Paterson, Gruden, Dungy||
Who's going to step up??
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Or he could do this at a rally before the basketball game..|
|4 years 7 weeks ago||This is great..||
I guess when I started this thread I was looking for other ways in a serious way... but I have to admit.. it's the sarcasm that keeps me coming back for more.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||This is my first pos bang||
|4 years 7 weeks ago||This is more like||
a pos gang bang

|4 years 7 weeks ago||Maybe JH does love himself too much..||
His wife looks just like him... The cheek bones, the chin, the teeth, the eyes.. And the lines on their cheeks when they smile..wow.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||I think this is...||
hilarioius... I also think it would be funny if someone did that to us. Sense of humor is great... along with a little trash talking... it's harmless.
I'm not debating whether or not a TCU program could last in the B10. Who knows.. no one really does... but that's a pretty shot using what they can.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||I think we've all had enough||
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Did someone say dick factor?||
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Then what is Pat Fitzgerald doing?||
|4 years 7 weeks ago||an RR interview?||
Yes, I know what you mean. But did anyone else do a double take and think RG felt so bad Rich Rod and his UM tenure he's requiring all NFL teams to give him a interview?
|4 years 7 weeks ago||I too hope||
we didn't do this too hastily.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||I'm just hoping||
We dong have three more years like this going through another complete change in philosophy..
|4 years 8 weeks ago||Yeah||
What running back do we have that can really be the man??? Staying healthy plays a role in that too... Not healthy.. Can't be the man.

Truth be told I got them for free.. All I had to do was give him the scarf I was wearing b/c he said he wasn't wearing one and wanted to "Dominate the scarf world"
