But he did get his teammate's girlfriend pregnant at one point, so there's that. There are a number of other things people don't like about him as well.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Even Wolfsburg and Leverkusen aren't typical though||
Both of them have the financial muscle of Volkswagen and Bayer respectively backing them. It'll be the same when RB Leipzig finally make it up (and then hopefully drop with Hoffenheim).
Now if Darmstadt manage to stay up after this year, that will be incredibly impressive given their recent (last three years) history.

Thanks, knew I was messing one of those up.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Both Bayern and Barca mix in||
Both Bayern and Barca mix in homegrown talent (Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Lahm, Müller, Schweinsteiger) with the superstars they purchase, so that's one reason the hate isn't as strong. It's been years since Chelsea has produced a regular from its academy. Outside of Terry and Lampard, I can't remember the last homegrown player they've started recently.

There can be a number of factors. I picked Bayern not because they're the Yankees of German soccer, but because I a) was learning German in high school and b) Munich was the first city I went to in Europe. Since it's impossible to follow 1860 Munich (likely going to be relegated to the 3rd tier this year) Bayern it was. Throw in the fact that it's a blast to watch Bayern and that any German stadium's atmosphere blows away an EPL ground's and there you go!
|9 weeks 1 day ago||I emailed the department about that a couple months ago||
The answer I received was that it's unlikely to re-open in that manner due to liability, utilities, vandalism (someone tore a chunk out of the turf in 2009), etc. Unfortunate, but not unexpected.

'13 was 5:00 (ET), '10 was 8:00, '08 was 4:30, and '06 was 8:00. Quite the array of start times in recent history there. Still happy this is early.

Kevin Kugler, Matt Millen, and Lisa Byington. Same crew as last week. Link.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||So does this count for Fulmer Cup points?||
Or is this no longer considered off season?
|23 weeks 4 days ago||UCLA did make it on there though||
Which is odd, since Michigan plays them in 2022-23.

Needs Birmingham somewhere in the top three.

|29 weeks 2 days ago||Nain Rouge||
There might be one or two stories that pop up when the news gets slow in Detroit, but nain rouge definitely wins that comparison.

Well crap. I can't read apparently.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||I'm referring to the||
I'm referring to the misspelled version being included on the considered list and the correct spelling being put on the not considered list, but if the misspelled is included solely based on the reasoning provided then who cares.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||Then there's this||
"Abominable snowmen" is on the not considered list, but "abdominal snowmen" is on the considered list with the reasoning "because fuck it why not, it's basically the north pole there"
Solid spellchecking, NoDak.

If I remember correctly Michigan dominated the game and Colgate's goalie put on a clinic.

Explained in this article. Essentially, he wasn't doing well in class, wanted to play a higher level of football, and wanted to move back some place that was warmer/closer to home.
|49 weeks 3 days ago||It wasn't really an attempt||
It was more of a survey. The idea was pitched to the group by the Maize Rage and The Zone, if I remember correctly. The results ended up being 2-1 or 3-1 in favor of not going official (which is exactly how it should be). Even if they inexplicably had been in favor I doubt it would have happened.

Zingerman's is overrated.

Because if I had a kid (and I don't), I could teach him (or her) a lesson using parenting skills that I would never dream of doing to another kid (i.e. I can't ground someone else's kid for a month, take away priveleges, etc.).

Your PS line makes no sense. Of course you're not going to call the police if your kid destroyed your property. Except in this case it was someone else's property. Invalid argument.

The Pointes also banned Poles during that time as well. I'm well over half Polish and never had a problem while growing up. People know the history, and the vast majority put it behind them because it just doesn't matter as much anymore. It is nowhere near as prevalent as it used to be. Those days are dead. Is there still a sense of entitlement? Absolutely. Are you going to be run out of town for being Jewish/Black/etc.? No.

Grosse Pointe South is fine. North has had its issues over the past few years and was never as good as South (note: I went to South so bias does play a bit of a role). It's slid backwards a bit since I left (late 2000s) but it's still a good district.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Uniquenames are hit and miss||
People who have worked at Michigan in the past (like Tolbert) but are no longer around still have uniquenames. For example, Hunter Lochmann still has a uniquename even though he is no longer working at Michigan. Ty Wheatley Sr. also has a uniquename, but he's listed as an alum.
The interesting one is Fred Jackson, who, if this is accurate, is listed as a retiree. https://mcommunity.umich.edu/#profile:fredjack

This was the Blue Water to Port Huron.

But almost no one remembers that particular gesture anymore.

But it's my understanding that Dekers essentially got absorbed by the AD. It still exists, but as a shell of its former self.
