Kudos to all the students, engineers and volunteers associated with the UM Solar Car Team! You guys are making us all proud!
|1 week 4 days ago||you had me at...||
...the over-cb leap and subsequent goal-line stiff-arm for the TD in his scouting highlight vid.
welcome to AA!
|1 week 5 days ago||one caveat||
...is that I wouldn't underestimate the motivation of recruiters/writers in the south who are more than anxious to pick up and run with a Harbaugh-negative recruiting perception/theory/story and stretch it out for as long as they can...
if they can't pass the anti-satellite camp rules, they sure as hell are going to jump all over stories like this if/when given the chance. I agree with Brian that we are largely on the up and up here (it seems), but that some things could be cleaned up for sure as the season goes on, but whether there is any "there there" or not, the esseeesseeee is sure to make mountains out of harbaugh-recruiting molehills
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Hail Harbaugh||
the champion of Tree Town!

...interesting that Neymar will be there in the running as well, but it seems to me that (like Iniesta in the past couple of years) it would take an awful lot for a fellow-Barca player to distinguish themselves/surpass Messi's influence on the team.
that said, the torch will be passed to Neymar someday... just probably not today

"It's happening and it is beautiful."
love it; great stuff

in the vicinity of 99 problems is Drew Sharp with some plagiarism allegations: http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article/20160104/NEWS/160109964/free-press-...
|5 weeks 1 day ago||"WE'RE GOING STREAKING!!"||
"got some pretty big Saturdays planned... gotta get revenge on two big rivals (on the road), go undefeated in OOC play, win the B1G and get into the playoffs... not sure if we'll be able to layer on the #disrespekt heavily enough, not sure we'll have enough time..."
|6 weeks 4 days ago||which Bush administration?||
also, it sounds like you are ready to move on to...
THE FEATS OF STRENGHTH.
I'd actually pay good money to watch Harbaugh compete with Mike D'Antoni in an actual Feats of Strength battle
(yes, I meant great #disrespekt)
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Gooner love||
Mourinho's sacking adds another interesting wrinkle to the Wenger-Mourinho feud...
#TFW your rivals come and go and you’re still going

Griese at s'keeps story from back in the day? now with less police but more bowl-related implications!!!
|8 weeks 6 days ago||also re: Muschamp||
Meyer was wildly successful with the Gators, but earned criticism for a high number of off-the-field incidents and arrests.
(not earth-shattering, of course; not really much else at the link either... but thought it was interesting re: Meyer)
|8 weeks 6 days ago||OC||
it will be interesting to see the previews our Dear Leader and the gang put together, especially their look at how Mr. Doug Nussmeier has done down there in Gainesville as compared with up here last season
|9 weeks 6 days ago||interesting to see that their||
schedule for 2016 has only 5 games on it at present:
I know you have to adjust for various scheduling issues, but it is nearly December of the year immediately prior and there are four games at the beginning of the season, and one late; of course, they went 3-10 this year, so...
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Brilliant.||
Thanks. Very much...
|10 weeks 5 days ago||perhaps all this offense taken||
...with respect to the state of errrhio generally could be remedied with a simple redesign of the shirt; rather than "Worst State Ever"....
"THE Worst State Ever."
|10 weeks 5 days ago||might as well||
might as well close the thread down now... not going to top this
|11 weeks 2 days ago||alright lunger...||
""You're so drunk, you're probably seeing double" --> "I got two guns, one for each of ya"
God I love that movie...
|12 weeks 5 days ago||"cheeto dust||
and pinecones" FTW
calls to mind the scene in Old School where Ferrell gets tranq'd... sleepy bear Hoke on couch want MOAR CHEETOS
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Bye||
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I concur...||
...and would also say that this recognition
"Almost all prospective purchasers have no idea why this site is successful, and eventually that would lead to a bunch of overhead I don't want to do, a Simmons diva phase, and then an exit."
is a testament to your media/business saavy.
Thanks, as always, for your tremendous work Brian (and Ace, et al.)
(and hey, guys... pssst hit that "make a donation" button maybe)
|13 weeks 6 days ago||indeed, he was at||
...the 100th iteration of The Game in 2003, shortly after featuring in the World Series (although they lost to Florida); he was there with Chuck Knoblauch and had seats on the 50 yd. line
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Thank you Seth||
for the great write-up; really looking forward to this.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||that||
...must be exhausting
|15 weeks 6 days ago||i think we will end up||
...moving past it as a fanbase once more positive developments occur on the field; winning back the jug would be a good start, beating PSU, then OSU at home would be great as well.
that said, while I don't think it will ever stop hurting (Kordell to Westbrook my freshman year still hurts...), I won't think about it anymore once we march up to east lansing next year, pound them into the ground, and walk out of the stadium like it was just another day at the office.
almost want to start looking for tickets to that game now...
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Mr. Argillander, a little advice back to you as well...||
I noted you described the advice you would provide to staff at the Daily, and I wanted to offer the following back to you in the spirit of cooperation:
These are quotes pulled from your article:
"MSU hasn’t just beat U-M in their matchups since Dantonio took over..."
"In the Spartans six wins..."
"U-M fans will point to the Wolverines 68-34-5 all-time series lead"
"“Really doesn’t take much to have a chip on our shoulder,” MSU senior quarterback Connor Cook said When did he say this? . “We’re going to go into each and every game with the underdog mentality..."
"It may not be the Wolverines fault that their hype train has left the Spartans feeling disrespected, but they will suffer the consequences...."
Overall, nicely written, and decently argued piece; however, I am assuming, with respect to the above-referenced points, that you meant the following:
"MSU hasn't just beaten U-M..."
"...Spartans' six wins..."
"...Wolverines' 68-34-5 all time series lead..."
"...Cook said Tuesday."
Overall, without the typos I'd have given it a B+; if your editors ever need some advice, feel free to give us a call.
Good luck Saturday.

to the good guys
|16 weeks 5 days ago||I'm completely fine||
with the whole "Harbaugh = Rafiki" (aka. wise old master of all things) concept here...
|16 weeks 6 days ago||USC-bound recruits with Michigan interest?||
not trying to make light of Sark's situation at USC at all (if the man has issues, he needs to take/be afforded the space and time to work on resolving those), but things like this do have an effect in the recruiting world...
anyone with better knowledge on these things have any insight into whether there might be kids who had Michigan interest but lean towards USC?

"consum[ing] Garman's soul" is the absolute best thing you can read in a UFR (apart, of course, from said phrase being slighly revised to insert "Cook/Jones/opponent QB-name" there)
