There's some "slanted opinion" in your comment, as you failed to mention Citizens United, but saw fit to include Gay marriage.

Wait? - wait for one whole year to nominate a Supreme Court Justice to honor "a kind of a consensus"?!

This is more in the manner of relating a story than judging the viewpoint (although I realize it will get slaughtered by people of a certain political stripe) - but Mitch McConnell said the day after Obama was inaugurated first time, when asked about the Senate's agenda in dealing with the new President, that his only agenda was making sure Obama was a one-term President.
So it's hardly surprising that GOP Senators would be rushing to social media to reinsure their supporters that they won't vote to confirm any Obama nominee. How that plays out remains to be seen. Some will face reelection themselves this year, and may find they can't afford to be that obstructive.

The worst part of this is that before this thread gets locked or deleted Incredible will end up offering his political views to the discussion.
Anyone who even perused the Harbaugh =/= Trump thread knows where this will inevitably head. So the only thing worth even conjecturing about is how long until someone posts "Good thing the Senate can block any Obama nominee" and starts a firestorm about the very nature of Democracy.

Well the problem I was pointing out is you're calling our past 2 recruiting classes (again, excepting Rahk) lower tier, minor players.

Yeah you can add the /s all you want, there wasn't one stat in your post that wasn't factual, or prediction not at least quite probable. Even after today I cannot conceive of how this team reaches the Sweet 16.

See this is analogous to the Harbaugh/Trump thread - different people see the same thing and have viscerally different responses. Because I'd say not the least bit amusing and please don't point out such sophomoric shit when I'm on a high enjoying a hard-fought and thoroughly improbable W.

|2 days 4 hours ago||This whole thread is off the||
This whole thread is off the rails now... if Finebaum compares Harbaugh to literally ANYONE half the people on here are gonna hate the person.
"Harbaugh is NOT like Mother Theresa - he KICKS ASS!!!"
"Harbaugh is NOT like Martin Luther King - he would take those fire hoses and Billy clubs and turn them back on the racist cops!"
"Harbaugh is NOT like King Arthur - he said everone should sit at a Round Table where no one was at the head! Sounds like something Bernie Sanders would do!"
I could go on...
Look, I want Jim Harbaugh to coach our football team - I don't want to have a political debate with him - or about him. If you read his Player's Tribune piece about growing up in A2 you'd know any money he has he EARNED with hard work and ingenuity. He didn't inherit it or bankrupt any pensions getting it. He didn't package any CDOs or offshore any blue collar jobs either...(And I am absolutely convinced that the more people on here or in general are terrified of a Bernie Sanders type economic plan the more likely they did one or all of those things. Sorry, but that's how I see it. The more you protest the more convinced I'll become)
And if you read the piece about him where his friend from youth recalls the time JH wouldn't even participate in a group project that began with the premise that there was no God and how do you create a value system in such a world (to paraphrase, I don't recall it exactly). He was so set in his beliefs he refused to even entertain any notion that disagreed with them.
So, yeah, keep coaching the team and doing the great job you're doing Jim, because I'm not getting in any political, religious or philosophical debates with ya, Big Guy!

If you think people are going to stop correcting, lecturing or criticizing others on this board because we all root for Michigan, you haven't been paying much attention!
Go, just for the purposes of edumacating yourself, and read the Finebaum compares Harbaugh to Trump post and the 256 (and counting) comments therein.
That'll disabuse you of the notion that people are going to get off your back because you like the Maize and Blue...

Ok, somehow saying comparing Harbaugh to Bernie Sanders doesn't work because that means no "Meritocracy" has made it through the "No Politics" gatekeeper.

Just keep the flammables away from Devin Jr please, we need him at LB!
|5 days 5 hours ago||This is what I called for at||
This is what I called for at times last season - 5-1-5 where the one could have been Morgan or Ross or Bolden (or Gedeon) based on down and distance, opp. personnel, etc.
This would be weird but make perfect sense for this team, with the way it has its talent distributed:
Death DL, Death DBs, meh LB (not including Bush, because I'm sure he's going to get the most snaps of any LB - but we haven't seen him yet, so...)
I know some very knowledgable football minds on here will explain why you need 3 (or at least 2) LB to avoid getting gashed in the run game. But I say if Peppers and Hudson can both be on the field with Lewis, Clark & Dymonte, you have enough speed and power to chop down any runner that gets past the 5 DL & 1 LB (again I say Bush).
It's not traditional, but it best utilizes our best talent, gets Gary on the field often, finds a way to have both Jabrill & Khaleke on the field together.
Something to think about - I hope an aggressive DC like Brown at least tries it out in practice.
And with all the DE/LB tweeners we're recruiting it seems like a good way to build for the future...

96, I'm just getting around to reading this, as I'm in SF and SB weekend has been a bit hectic.
I got to bullet point #3 and just had to skip over to comments to see how many people had pointed out that you might wanna think about saying our in-state rivals "siphon off" some of the local talent, not "suck them off"?!

I listed several reasons actually. Was the governor of Tennessee the only one that fit your narrative?
I'll simplify it to where you can understand it then:
I don't like Peyton, I never liked Peyton even before the Heisman bruhaha, I don't like Omaha either, and now I don't like you, you dumb Fuck!
Happy now, "Billy"?

Husband is hungry, wife is a bitch you mean?
That shit was funny because it was so realistic!
Who the Hell is tired of "husband is dumb" adds anyway? What you want - wife is dumb, husband is smart"? Who makes purchasing decisions in your house?

Oh and don't forget the Fuckin Governor of Tennessee saying Heisman voting needs to be investigated after Chuck took the stiff-armer from under Peyton's nose...
And the 17 Brady vs Manning matchups, where face it if you like the Wolverines more than the Colts/Broncos it was a No-brainer who to root for.
But really it's always goin back to the Orange Bowl where Peyton out-Peytoned himself, allowing the dirty coaches to do what they wanted to do and vault Nebraska over us for the coaches half of the NC.
Peyton going out a loser will give my life meaning!

Coming to this WAY late, but as a Tom Brady pimp, it's Joe Montana in a No-brainer.
4 wins, 0 L, 0 picks...and he only had Jerry Rice for the 3rd & 4th SB fyi.
Tommy for backup - and he wouldn't argue for 1 second either! Only wish there were more Wolverines on the all time team!
