RCMB is not an MSU fan board, it's a Michigan obsession board.
The longest thread by far on RCMB is "I think scum just hit bottom' with over 6600 posts, 268 pages and over 500K page views since September. Took a look at the last couple of pages, they literally seize upon every single thing publicly said/done by any member of the UM team or coaching staff, then spend the next few pages reassuring each other why that thing will ruin our program. Most recent obsession is Gwen Bush.
And they wonder why, even after 7 years of sustained success in the rivalry, they are and will always be little brother.

Not as much of a party atmosphere as Bourbon but a lot of fun in its own right. Beale has great bars, restaurants and live music

That is a question I've wrestled with myself. Those folks pissed me off to no end, but Adam is too plugged in to too many sources to have really believed that. I choose to believe he was just trying not to hurt UM's chances by saying too much too soon. That may just be my maize glasses though.

Thank you. Not that anyone on this site already isn't...but follow Adam Schefter. In addition to being the best source for NFL everything, he shows his maize and blue side and always breaks anything UM-related.

Better there than MSU. Tons of pressure on Matt Painter to win big now. A lot of people thought he was going to be fired, then they did well last season. Let's see if he can keep it up.

Disagree. That whole, we suck so let's be nice and proper and not ruffle any feathers attitude was why Brady Hoke apologized to Dantonio for stake-gate. Very glad to have that attitude in the past.

Some? They sold the entire internet out of Jackrabbits apparel for our first round game vs SDak St...and they wonder why little brother lives on?

I have no doubt that the players and coaches loved Brandon. He made sure they had the best of facilities, that the coaches were well paid and that the student athletes' experience was first class. What he screwed up was everything fan-related, which honestly doesn't impact the players or coaches while they are at UM.
|1 week 5 days ago||For a lot of smaller sports||
For a lot of smaller sports the UM teams are outfitted by a sport-specific brand and Adidas makes the team gear, warmups etc. For instance the swimmers wear speedo suits, wrestlers singlets are made by Cliff Keen athletic and so on. I believe that would remain the case even if we switch back to Nike.

Dude, he only accepted a commitment from another CB because he knew Arnette was going to Michigan if he didn't take him. You are really stretching the "rational" part of your nickname now

Whatever helps you sleep at night, bro. Urban got caught in an oversigned situation he didn't expect to be in, and it is playing out like this. He is not someone with a track record of putting "the well being of student athletes" above one more kid he can stuff into an oversigned recruiting class. His shenanigans would be a little more believable had THREE kids who were well enough to play in the CFP finals not magically come down with career-ending injuries in less than a month before signing day.
The guy wins, enjoy it while you can, but don't believe for one second that he's a guy who is motivated by the welfare of anyone other than himself.

Da'shawn Hand allegedly picked Bama over Michigan because he wanted to major in engineering. Lol.

I think I speak for everyone when I say "Please let this happen!" I doubt it though, because ND would never put up with the shenanigans urban has pulled at every stop in his career and he would be afraid of tarnishing his legacy.

Maybe he ends up at Cal. That'd be nice.

Interestingly it was also geometry that defined the middle/high school difference for me. However, my reason was that my 9th grade geometry teacher was a 70-something guy in his last year of teaching before retirement. Since he had been in the school longer than most of the other teachers had even been alive, he got no pushback on his old-fashioned ways. For someone not naturally inclined to math in the first place, it was tough to have a class graded college-style (test scores were 100% of your grade) and if your homework wasn't done to his standards, you were kicked out of that day's lesson. It was miserable at the time, but I believe that class was the impetus for me to learn how to work at a level that eventually led me to where I wanted to be.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This is a good question. In||
This is a good question. In elementary and middle schools I was just naturally smarter than many of my classmates and got by without having to work hard. Freshman year, I realized how competitive and hard things could be. It took me that year to figure out how to study/prepare/work at a high school level. So I was placed in all regular level classes soph year, but knew exactly how to succeed in them, so I made all A's that year and moved up to honors levels. By junior year, I felt more in my element and began focusing on going to a good college. By senior year summer, I knew I really wanted to go to Michigan.

Plenty of undrafter kickers make it in the league, and even a few guys with decade-plus careers as K/P originally went undrafted, so Matt has a shot here. He definitely has the leg strength, hopefully his accuracy will be up to snuff.

If Nick says it, then Max is coming back. He is the worst. An MSU alum and homer who somehow got placed on the UM beat, all he does is spew hatred toward the Wolverines. Pretty sure he still thinks Harbaugh is going to Oakland.
