What are these built-in advantages they have that we don't?
|5 days 22 hours ago||I think everyone claiming||
I think everyone claiming Sparty looked unimpressive is just wishful thinking. They looked utterly dominant against ND for the majority of the game. I felt much better about the State game before Saturday. I think they'll crush Wisconsin.

Yes, we'll fete him for it.
|1 week 6 days ago||When will the exact time of||
When will the exact time of the game-time announcment on 9/18 be determined?

I'm sure Iowa thinks what's been happening to us is pretty funny as well.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||So everyone cheats execept||
So everyone cheats execept us, especially our rival who beats us handily most years. It's a nice narrative.

Um, I believe he means under Beilein.

No thanks, already looking ahead to State.

Heather will feel the same way we feel one day, I just know it.

Last year it was impossible for me to feel anything for Minny over Jerry Kill's departure after watching them target Rud(d)ock all game long. It was nearly Sparty-level dirty.

Don't tell Hawaii!

|3 weeks 4 days ago||Yes, but the Intercept||
Well, the Intercept article that was linked to claims that these mercenaries were often American slaves, who for obvious reasons fought for the British. This usage, "the hireling and slave," certainly can refer to (1) a hireling and (2) a slave.
Do you have a good source for the meaning behind the words of the Anthem? I don't know much about this context.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||That John Harbaugh quote is||
That John Harbaugh quote is bewildering. I think he may have used a double negative unintentionally.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||You got downvoted because||
You got downvoted because this blog has always had a strange pro-Northwestern contingent.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Yep, we're really uptight||
Yep, we're really uptight here, no Bible talk and no photos of attractive women (in order not to upset the likes of Mrs. SRKass).
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks I very well may. My||
Thanks I very well may. My limited understanding of the conflict is pretty basic and more geared towards the state military powers operating behind the confilct.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Okay, that's true up to a||
Okay, that's true up to a point and seen a certain way, but from what I've read this idea, for example, of a strong "moderate" faction of Syrian rebels was something of a myth. No one wants to say it, but US arms undoubtedly went directly to ISIS in many cases. So now we want to put out a fire we arguably helped along. What was for some time a pure proxy war of two sides--US/Saudi anti-gov vs. Russia/Iran pro-gov--has become much knottier.

Or the Del Rio, sigh....
|4 weeks 1 day ago||And the region is still utter||
And the region is still utter chaos, seemingly by design. We install a Shiite leader in Iraq who immeditely sets about imprisoning and torturing political opponents, while knowing our best-friend ally Saudi Arabia will be funneling extremists into Iraq to go directly against what we've done. And we've played both sides in Syria.

Exactly, there are other blogs for this kind of discussion, such as foreign policy blogs.

Another data point for why the term Little Brother will never die.

I, too, am sick of Brian being wrong about something now and then.

Grammatical errors really stand out in comments like this.
|40 weeks 4 days ago||I'm prepared to withhold||
I'm prepared to withhold judgment until I have all the facts. To wit: If we end up hiring Leavitt, I'm confident the USF incident was overblown and a one-time thing. If we don't end up hiring Leavitt, I'm confident that Michigan would never hire someone involved in such an incident.

He may not be the most athletic guy, but he's a tactical genius. He's like a philospher walking around out there. And what he doesn't have in freakish athletic abilities he makes up for with good old American grit.

It tells me that it's in the best interest of lesser teams to implement a spread in an attempt to close the gap in talent.
