The holier than thou, 'kid at another school did something wrong and his coach didn't do enough' threads are sooo annoying. I said as much in the last kings thread. We're removed from the situation and each one is different.
But strike two is on Dantonio, too. Can't spin it any other way.

I don't know what it is but this kid reminds me a lot of Dirk Nowitzki. Just my gut feeling or something. Anyone else think its a good comparison?

The Lions served their purpose: provided watchable football for the single most uninteresting Michigan football season in memory. Even still, they had two huge games and blew both of them. Enter Harbaugh, goodbye Suh, hello watching only the thanks giving lions game.

I have a feeling QB recuiting under Harbaugh is going to be fasciniating. Getting the QB for 2015 was a ton of fun and 2016 is crazy already. If Eason became a factor in Costello's recruting? oh man.

Yup, and as I posted, I will 100% invest in the strategy from the post with the most upvotes.
Relax, Nancy, just doing a bit of brainstorming. Most of this thread is a lot of fun.

do you mean 22% equity? And with the appraisel did you need to refinance?

I do have some low interest student loans still. I've contemplated just paying them off. It's highly desirable, but I don't know if its smart. I also have a mortgage that I'm paying PMI on, though it doesn't amount to much either. I could get to 20% on my mortgage (and drop the PMI) or kill the balance of my student loan debt, but I don't think I can do both with this money. And the PMI + student loan interest combines to not a whole lot. I don't have any credit card debt or have car payments.

"and don't listen to folks on bulletin boards, even this one."
-Good advice, and likely the only I will take from this thread. I am ust brainstorming right now.

He sort of pissed me off by the end. Most of them did. The going to work pistons were fun till things got much uglier than they should have. Thats when I gave up on them / Joe. They might get my attention again, Drummond/ Monroe is a fun thing to watch.

Yes, and if we win out we'd be 10-8 in the B1G and have 17 wins going into the B1G tourny. Outside, but with momentum going into selection Sunday. Not the worst scenario for sneaking into the NCAA's.

I love that Beilein predicted Max would be 'unstoppable'.
Rich kid, undersized, and is as scrappy as everyone in the country. Spike and him are fantastic leaders for this team.
My understanding is Max probably only comes back for his 5th year if we whiff on recruits. So who knows, but I'd be glad to see him back.

Things I learned tonight: Edward Snowden's girlfriend is a looker. Her name is Lindsey Mills and she's into pole dancing. Most of her pictures wouldnt be Adsense approved.

For even a chance at a miracle we need Walton back. All those games in a week is too much for this team with 0 depth.

Great year for movies. I can't remember a year where the best movies were so loved by the Acadamy
2) Inherent Vice
4)Grand Budapest Hotel
I dont like Jake Gylenhal but he was great in Nightcrawler, a true snub. And Inherent Vice should have got a best picture nom.

Thrilled we didn't cough up this win. We arent headed to the tourney, but I think we can still finish strong and build off of this for next year.
That steal by spike is going to be a highlight for this season.

I recall a Beliein quote from a few years back where he told the team "They're trying to make highlights, we're trying to win the game".
If they're trying to shake Spike, he played in the national championship game, something State hasn't done since these kids were in diapers (assuming most Spartans had to wear diapers till they were 4 or 5. I think this is a safe assumption). Spike isn't going to be intimidated by one or two future NBDL players.
That said, this is much ado about nothing. Most Sparties do more to emobdy the "little brother" ethos before breakfast than this.

The common belief that GFII is better than I is non-sensical to me. Deniro's portioin doesn't add enough, I loved Sonny's character and Brando was obviously incredible. Maybe II has the bigger plot points, but I is just a better watch to me.
Also agree with those who've said III isn't as bad as the reputation. If they hired a real actress to play michael's daughter it would have made a big difference.

3 complaints about it:
1) the script could have used some work to avoid some of the most formulaic elements.
2) the time thing was too reminiscent of Inception
3) the ending. starting with the Tesseract, the movie just gets stupid.

Fun thread! A few random thoughts:
Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, and Jim Carey arent that funny. Of the three Ferrell has had the best moments, but he's so overrated its hard to appreciate them.
Quentin Tarentino isnt 1/10 the genius everyone makes him out to be. Pulp Fiction was great and the rest of his movies have been 'ok but dont worry if you missed it' territory.
Tom Cruise still has the goods and consistantly delivers worthwhile movies to this day.
The trendy of gritty realism for classic franchises like batman and bond is a good idea in theory but boring in execution. Even Connory had a wink and a smile to his Bond, and the other than the great performance by Heath Ledger the batmans were meh. Not a fan of Christopher Nolan in general, Momento was great and Inception was cool, but the rest? Pretty weak.

Of course, but the mom is in the wrong here. All fan bases have this, and you can bet there are plenty of MSU and OSU fans posing as Michigan fans wanting to make us look bad.
If the noise bothers her she can turn it off. It really is that simple.
