Even NASA loves Friday
|1 day 12 hours ago||Yeah, I walked right past||
Yeah, I walked right past there after the game and you could hear there was a commotion going on. The visitor locker room got remodeled next season with a proper cinder block structure.
|1 day 12 hours ago||I was at that game and man||
I was at that game and man Yost was ready to explode and rightfully so. It was one of the dirtiest hits I've ever seen in a hockey game. The fact that Kampfer had just recovered from a head injury only added fuel to the fire.
My seats back then were very close the entrance to the visitor locker room, and I can remember letting some f-bombs fly at Rick Comley as he and his staff walked off the ice. You could see he was pretty unnerved by the whole incident.
That was the one sporting event where I completely lost my shit at the opposing team, and I was just one of about 7000 others feeling the same way.

Implying that you've been in situations where being exposed to an STD is theoretically possible? Wow, the parties you and your Sparty friends throw must be off the chain.

"I only applied to Michigan so I could turn them down in favor of MSU".
I've never met a single person who picked MSU over Michigan. Not one. I've met students who picked Notre Dame over Michigan. Picked Duke over Michigan. Picked Stanford over Michigan. But reading MSU boards, you'd think the entire student body in East Lansing has had the satisfaction of turning down Michigan in favor of MSU.
What a crock...
|3 days 8 hours ago||It's amusing how blithely||
It's amusing how blithely unaware their entire fan culture remains to how the name "Izzone" really just highlights the fact that the Spartan basketball program, for the majority of it's history, has been mediocre. Their entire fan culture is built around a person, not their school, yet they continue to puff their chests out like they're Big 10 UCLA.
So when Izzo finally retires, what do you call yourselves then? Exactly. This is why nobody outside of middle Michigan respects you, because your "history" and "tradition" extends as far back as the end of the Clinton adminstration.

Might want to have a look through the DeWeaver decommit thread. Lots of posts trashing the kid. Some people.

Well, I'm sure the pampered elite of the U of M Greek System will be relieved to know that you have their back....

Man, this one never gets old. What bunch of hacks.

OP's title immediately took me here....
Tom Brady is out there. He can't be bargained with or reasoned with. He doesn't feel pity. Or remorse. Or fear. And he absolutely will not stop, until you are dead....
|4 days 11 hours ago||As for Mark Brunell and the||
That depends on what Mark Brunell's assigned "tutor" was majoring in at the time he was enrolled at Washington....
|4 days 11 hours ago||If the Patriots didn't have||
If the Patriots didn't have Tom Brady, they probably wouldn't be good enough to root for anyway, even if you were from the Northeast.
|4 days 12 hours ago||This is a Lie||
Jim Harbaugh doesn't need a glove to catch a foul ball at a baseball game. He stops the ball in mid-air through the sheer force of his indomitable will.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Wear and Tear?||
We're worried about wear and tear on our personal vehicle? Well, I've heard some college programs have found a way around that....

|1 week 2 days ago||There are two sides to this;||
There are two sides to this; Patriot-haters who want to make this a big deal out of this and everyone else who do not give a fuck. Also, the Today show conducting a "poll" on how people feel about this is just piling on more bullshit since participation will naturally skew to the haters because, as we've already pointed out, everyone else does not give a fuck.
|1 week 3 days ago||3 years ago Urban Meyer took||
3 years ago Urban Meyer took over a 6-7 Ohio State squad and has yet to lose a regular season Big 10 conference game and has lost 3 games total. Is Michigan really that much worse off than OSU was in 2012? I don't think so. Is Harbaugh and his staff in Meyer's league? I think it's fair to think so.
I think 8-4 seems overly pessimistic.
|1 week 3 days ago||If there was an advantage for||
It's petty when they don't have any actual proof of it beyond some of their players observing that the ball felt a "little different." Hardly definitive proof.
|1 week 3 days ago||I WAS IN THE POOL!!!!||
|1 week 3 days ago||Actually, I think the point||
Actually, I think the point of underinflation is to make the ball "squishier" and easier to grip, not necessarily smaller.
Your premise is correct though, volume in this case is not truly a constant, but for the pressure differentials we're talking about in comparison to the overall volume of the football coupled with the membrane strength of the leather itself, the change in volume is so small it can be considered negligible.
|1 week 3 days ago||No They Haven't||
The Patriots haven't been "caught" doing anything. All evidence is circumstantial. Short of a video clip of a ball boy on the Patriot sideline with a needle letting air out of the ball, there is no way for the league to prove the Patriots deliberately deflated their footballs to gain some kind of advantage. Certainly not an advantage that would explain a 38 point score differential.
This is just a smoke screen being thrown up by the Colts to deflect attention away from the fact that they got their asses handed to them on Sunday by a better football team.
|1 week 3 days ago||So essentially, they picked||
So essentially, they picked Speight because he impressed the previous coaching staff in Spring Practice last year and Harbaugh loves tall QBs?
Jesus, sometimes maybe it's just a good idea to not write anything rather than post unresearched, unsubstantiable tripe.
|1 week 3 days ago||Exactly||
Should be fun...a true delight.
|1 week 3 days ago||The ice would've melted if||
The ice would've melted if Harbaugh had gone out there, he's so hot right now.
|1 week 3 days ago||I think I read that there was||
I think I read that there was something like 45 cameras in Gillette Stadium covering the game on Sunday. All that video coverage, but the Patriots were able to surreptitiously deflate footballs without anyone noticing? Of all the bullshit conspiracy theories....
On top of that, 11 of 12 footballs were found to be underinflated. When were those checked? Monday? Tuesday? Were the footballs being stored in some temperature controlled police evidence locker until the league came around to check them to get to the bottom of this?
Jesus, this is dumb.
|1 week 3 days ago||They still have road series||
They still have road series against MSU, Ohio State, and Minnesota. While we are normally at odds with our Big 10 brethren, I think we as collective fanbases probably are all having a similar reaction to Penn State's continued lack of contrition. And it's bears mentioning that the Big 10 Championships are being played at Joe Louis Arena in March, so you could still have a chance to have your voice heard.
|1 week 3 days ago||Is there no accountability? I||
I think we all know the answer to this question. Also, since there's probably more Patriot-haters than fans out there, this story probably won't get a lot of negative blowback outside of the New England area.
They'll probably give Rosenburg another award for this flimsy piece of trash.
|1 week 4 days ago||You have to understand how||
You have to understand how Penn State regards itself collectively. The best analogue I can make is that Penn State fans are like Notre Dame fans. They possess an inflated view of their importance in the college football landscape. Now with Notre Dame, this self-image is at least justified as the Irish have a solid history of college football behind them. Championships, legendary rivalries. etc. Penn State doesn't really have any of that.
Before they joined the Big 10, Penn State fans relished in their independent status and regarded conference affliliation as something vulgar. There was a large faction of them that opposed joining the Big 10, but they figured once they joined, they'd be the preeminent program of the conference.
The fact that they aren't celebrated in the same was as Michigan or Ohio State in the conference hierarchy shreds their worldview and it makes them crazy. That's why they hate us.
